Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 150 lbs
Size Purchased: large

The material in these was way too thin. Additionally, I don't know why it is such a hard concept for bicycle clothes manufacturers to make the leg elastics large enough that they don't squeeze excessively causing the dreaded sausage thigh appearance. I have muscular skiing/bicycling thighs and this is a regular issue. If I size up, then the rest of the shorts, abdominal waist band, etc. is poor fitting because they are too large. Back these go.

If you are looking for a jacket with minimal/pizzaz/quality, and no flair, this may be the jacket for you. (I despise feathers falling out of my jacket).
Julian Carr, (owner of Discrete), is great. He supports local causes and is just a genuinely nice guy, HOWEVER, his clothing line quality needs some work.

Aside from having to extensively tailor his shirts, (female flannels/etc.,), I am bummed at the quality. I don't like to pick feathers out of seams, etc., (they are supposed to stay inside your jacket to help you stay warm)

Julian Carr is great. This jacket is not. Discrete can and should do better. Please listen to your customers Julian!

I love these undies! I bought 2 pair a year ago, and I found myself digging through my panty drawer far too frequently searching them out. So, I bought 3 more pair. The reason I am giving 4 vs 5 stars is that there is a distinct difference in the fabric weight of the 2013 vs 2014 version. The 2014, (these), is a much lighter weave than the 2013 version I purchased. I am not sure yet if this will translate into product performance, but it is noticeable.

With that being said, if the 2014 version performs as the 2013 version, they will be well worth the investment, if you want to be comfortable and dry.

I am 5'8", 150 pounds with an athletic build, (skier booty), and the medium fit perfectly. I don't have any issues with riding up or getting holes in them, as described in other reviews. Make sure to wash these and hang dry, don't put them in the dryer. These are so comfy, breathable/stay dry, and stay fresh. Enough said.

I am 5'8" athletic build and bought these in a large. They fit well and are comfy. The only complaint I have is the length of the legs. They are so long that I have to fold over the bottom otherwise they bunch up at the bottom. Perhaps I could have went with a medium if the inseam were shorter? Not sure. I bought the Pearl Izumi Symphony knickers in mediums and they are dreadfully tight, which is why I went with the large on these.

These were super comfy right out of the box. I love they are vegan, sturdy, and lightweight. They do run small, so make sure you size up. I went up a whole size to allow for enough room in the toe box so my big toe wouldn't jam into the end of the shoe on descends. Really happy with these so far.

I bought this saddle for my MTB. Unfortunately, the slits in the sides have pinched me on several occasions, ouch, this doesn't help for comfort on long rides. The saddle is too firm to offer a comfortable MTB ride. I have had a professional bike fit, all to no avail. It is painful on the soft lady parts, after only 12 miles. Between this and the pinching that has occurred with the side slits that are made to "flex", (something I have never noticed), this is going back. Maybe good for a road bike? Not sure. I love my Specialized road bike saddle and will most likely look at their line as an option for my MTB.

The cut runs a bit small, body fitting for sure. I am 5'8"/athletic build and typically wear medium shirts, this however was too tight for my liking. I would order a large, however, the fabric is REALLY thin and REALLY sheer, I mean really sheer. Maybe for summer, if you like sheer tops? I ordered 2, one in black and one in white. Back they went.

I actually bought this backpack as a replacement for my OGIO backpack that I use for work/travel to carry my product samples, literature, and laptop. The bags quality is of Osprey standards and very nice. However, I wish the black were a true black vs. the washed out greenish tint that occurs when you use a black item for ahwhile. The outside netting pockets to hold drinks are okay, but do not secure bottles as well as you would hope due to the side straps that lock across the pockets. Your water bottles can fall out and I can tell the netting is not a high tensile and will rip with further use. I was also disappointed that there were not more small pockets to secure random items such as my Osprey hydration pack that has pockets galore. The inside straps to secure clothing and essentials for a backpacking trip or overnight stay, are very nice and I like how the entire bag unzips to allow for total access. I wish there was a way to remove the waist straps when not using them. It is annoying to have to figure a way to strap them down so they don't flop around as you travel through the airport. I do like the removable shoulder strap that allows you to carry the backpack like a duffel bag vs a backpack.

This is seriously the best PFD I have ever owned. Fit is awesome and customizable with the shoulder and side adjustable straps. The double-layer front pockets allow for easy access to your storage items, i.e. phone/camera/sustainables. Very comfy and not constrictive to paddling movements. Love this PFD!

When I first put this on for my Lake Powell kayaking excursion, my partner and I thought it was awesome! Fits me and the kayak well and such a great design. Fast-forward two days later after paddling and camping and all was not well. The skirt is definitely not waterproof and I was soaking wet in my seat. It is a great concept, but lacks in critical execution of keeping you dry. Sadly, back to Backcountry it went

I bought the raspberry and the flavor is tasty without being overwhelming or sugary. Electrolyte combo is great for hydration and keeping you tuned up and in the game. In my humble opinion, this is the best sports drink to date. I wish the quantity available for purchase was larger than 1 pound.

Works well for long-distance rides. I can definitely tell when I forget to take them as I can push harder and longer. Also helps with recovery and not aching after a day of crushing it.

Love these! So toasty warm and cool rides and the silicone/elastic band keeps these in place on your thigh. My only complaint, and the reason for the 4 stars vs 5, is after approximately 5 uses, there are small, white elastics that are protruding from various portions of the thigh band. I have washed these twice and air dry vs dryer which is disappointing to see the elastics poking through already. I am 5'8" 148 pounds and I bought the Large. I have athletic thigh muscles and wanted to avoid the sausage appearance of a medium squeezing to tightly.

These are perfect biking shades for so many reasons. They have awesome coverage without any blind spots,(super important), adjustable nose piece for optimal fit, 3 lens shades for perfect coverage no matter the light conditions, and installation of lenses is a snap, it literally takes less than a minute to change out lenses. I own mostly Smith brand eyewear and helmets as their customer service/warranty is unmatched, product quality is top-notch, and price point beats Oakley and other competitive brands. Get these, you will not be disappointed!

I love this helmet! It is super comfortable, light, secure, and looks sleek. It is so comfortable, I forget I am wearing a helmet. I have not experienced issues with the low drop and the fit of my sunglasses. I wear Smith PivLock V2 Max when I ride and have no issues at all.

These are great looking glasses if you have a large head. These would fall off when I bent over and if I put them on top of my head, they would slip off because they are so wide. Perhaps this is why they are called Hammerhead? Make sure you have a wide face and larger than average head or these will not fit you. Had to return them.

I love all the technical details that Osprey includes on their products. The zippered pockets on the waist straps are great. Perfect for stashing the cell phone or energy essentials. The helmet strap is also genius. High quality product, super comfortable to wear, and lots of well thought out pockets and details.
