Bright and effective!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I commute via train and longboard to/from work every day. Now that Winter Solstice is approaching, I commute in darkness both to and from work and I needed something to clip onto my backpack. This light helps keep me visible while kick-pushing my way down the road. Reflective tape on my helmet wasn't enough, but this light definitely helps keep me visible. I've gotten caught with it in the rain and it still works great.

My only complaint is the backpack clip. It's not very secure. I'm not sure if someone swiped it on the subway, or it just fell off, but either way, the clip is not sturdy enough to keep small bumps or sticky fingers from easily swiping it off my backpack. One day it was there, the next it was gone. So, I had to purchase another one.

Delicious and nutritious...

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

...and they make you feel ambitious!

I've never really thought much about buying food online, but I decided to order a box of ProBars after reading the many positive reviews here. I used to be big into Clif Bars, but the ProBar reviews really peaked my interest and I'm so glad I followed through. One of my biggest pet peeves about Clif Bars was that they are very dry. I saw another reviewer mention that these are moist and indeed, they are definitely moist and delicious. I opted for the Superfruit Slam, as I love anything fruity, and these did not disappoint. It's so nice to unwrap a bar and actually be able to see each individual ingredient, as opposed to the conglomerate rock Clif Bars seem to be. A few of the other reviewers mentioned that these bars are big and quite filling. While they are somewhat big in size, I do not find that they are that filling. Maybe it's because I'm a bit of a beast? I'm not sure, but I can eat a whole bar as a warm up before tackling a chicken salad wrap, and then some. Regardless, taste and texture definitely beat out Clif Bars any day. True, a 12-pack box of Pro Bars does cost twice as much (or more) as a 12-pack box of Clif Bars, but these are worth the price. I always prefer to shop with Backcountry.com, so I was a bit disappointed to find that many other websites offer the same 12-pack for about $15 less. However, after speaking with a Gearhead, I was able to take advantage of the Price Match Guarantee and still keep supporting the goat! WINNING!

And just in case anyone else is curious to know what these things look like before you buy (I was), I've attached a photo of the Superfruit Slam goodness. Bon appetite!
