My wife purchased these blankets, here's her review: Bought a couple of these blankets just to have around the house. In agreement with other reviewers, these blankets are super soft and don't have the itchiness that some wool products can have. I love the durable feel of these blankets and feel confident that they will get lots of use in our house from cuddling up in one on the couch to keeping us warm on chilly nights out drinking beers and barbecuing.

My wife bought these shoes, here's her take: This is probably my billionth pair of Salomon trail runners. I've tried other brands, but it's tough to beat the grip, fit, and durability of this brand. I have yet to get these out on the trail and I expect a few days of tripping over the Contagrip sole until I get used to spanking new tread again. However, I am excited that there does not seem to be quite so much padding to the outer shoe as my speedcross 3's, which took forever to break in and felt like a ton of bricks when they got wet (they were still my go-to running shoe until retirement). I look forward to using these through the fall and winter seasons to see how the DWR coating holds up!

My wife purchased this jacket, here's her review:
I love this fleece. Probably the most comfortable fleece I own at this point. The fit is flattering and it is deceptively warm. I keep trying to find excuses to throw it on, even though we're well into 70 and 80 degree days. Percent for cool mornings though and I can't wait to try it in the winter.

Fit: Runs small

The wife purchased these, this is her take:
Just received these shorts in the mail and am excited to try them out. I have other Patagonia shorts that have become some of my faves, so I'm excited to add another pair to the rotation. The fit is a little more snug in the small, but I have found in the past that if I upgrade to a medium, they're too baggy. Materials are thin and lightweight so I'm hopeful they'll be perfect for summer!

My wife purchased these socks, here's what she thinks:
These are super comfy. I have yet to run in them. They have a bit more cushion than some other running socks, but they are great for just hanging around and casual wear. Can't wait to try them on the trail!

My wife bought these socks, this is her review:
I grabbed a pair of these socks because I was tired of using old ski socks and hiking socks for winter running. I love the length and the snug fit, but since summer is in full force, I have not tried them out yet. They are pretty thin, but I think they would be great for cooler temps. Winter is coming?

My wife purchased these socks, here's her review:
Finally updated from my cheap cotton socks to these babies. They fit snugly without being too tight (I hate having to wrestle my socks on), come up high enough to protect my ankles from any prickly overgrowth on the trail, and don't slide around in variable terrain. I was a little worried that the seam on top of the toe might cause some friction, but it hasn't so far! Very happy with these socks! I found the mediums to be a touch on the big side (I wear a women's size 9) but not enough to downsize.

My wife bought these sandals, this is her take:
These sandals are great! I was a little nervous the straps would cause some blisters after walking some distance in them, but absolutely not the case! The heel height is still very functional and I had no problem running through the airport on vacation. Would definitely buy again!

I just put this speed and cadence sensor on my bike. They are super easy to install. The speed sensor just goes around your front or rear hub, and the cadence sensor installs on your crank with a rubber band (included). The setup is super easy. I had the previous generation cadence sensor, and while it did work just fine, the new version is easier to install and makes it easier if you want transfer it to other bikes.

Bought this shirt for the warm summer months at the office when I don't want to wear a long sleeved t shirt or a normal old t. Overall the styling is what you would expect from BD and the quality is nice. I bought the denim/aluminum plad which is orange and blue, right in my wheelhouse. I am 5'9" and bought the small. Fits perfect.

Bought this shirt to change things up at the office. The wool material is noticeable, but it feel more like your favorite cotton t shirt. The quality is great and sizing is spot on. I am 5'9", 155lbs and I bought the Small.

My wife purchased this shirt, here's her review:
I am currently obsessed with marmot shirts for my active wear. This shirt is form fitting without being too tight and is also a good length so that when I hike or run, it doesn't ride up. I love that marmot puts upf in their shirts because I'm super lazy about sunscreen. I typically have a water pack with me when I trail run, and these shirts are some of the only ones I've found that the collar of the shirt protects my shoulder and neck from my pack straps. These shirts are always the first ones I pull out of my drawer when I go outside. Always looking to stock up on more!

I have ridden Sidi shoes for a decade now and their quality and performance is second to none. The push buckle system is super easy to use and dial in on the go. Overall I am looking to have a great year on these shoes.

Arc'Teryx hit it out of the park with this shirt. It is stylish, yet comfortable. The fabric makes it feel like a t shirt, and the Arc'Teryx quality is noticeable. I am 5'9" and bought a size small. It fits perfectly. Not too baggy, not to slim.

Here's my wife's review:
Bought these socks primarily for running. They absolutely do the job, although they may be more well suited to cooler running temps. I did find them to bunch up slightly once my feet starting sweating in warmer temps. I bought a M (size 9 shoe) and am not sure if the bunching would have been resolved with a smaller size. Otherwise, the socks are of the great quality that I would expect from icebreaker.
