Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
Fit: Runs large

I got these in white/purple mirror. They are decent shades, but not really what I was expecting. I have a small head and these look ginormous on me. I would say they're for "medium to large" face size, not the small to medium claimed in the tech specs. Also, the picture of the white/purple makes the lenses look fairly dark and purple, but in reality they are very light lenses, and they only really look purple in a certain light. Looking out of them, they make the world look very yellow, which is weird. To give you an idea, putting these on triggers my girlfriend's "photic sneeze reflex"(when you sneeze from sunlight), even when it's not very bright out.

This "leash"is nice for situations where you don't really need a leash, but want to have something to wrangle the pups into and out of the car after a hike or trip to the park,vet,etc. You can use the leash to take them in, then wrap it around their neck so you don't have to carry it. If you want to have them off leash most of the time, this is great, because they carry their own leash and you don't have to. On the other hand, actually using this as a leash for more than about 2 minutes is a pain in the butt; it's really short and doesn't have much to hold onto...no real grip or loop or anything. I've definitely been in situations where I wanted a real leash, but only had this. Bottom line is, your mileage will vary, depending on how you use a leash.

This is a cool little light. There's no battery or power switch, you just plug it into any usb and the lights go on. Needless to say, this makes it a great addition to anything with power and a usb port, and pretty useless without them. The bendable tube area is interesting...I expected it to be something rubbery, but it's actually metal, like they have on some little ikea lamps. This makes it stay where you put it, which is nice, but I worry a little about the durability, and i feel like I should be careful not to crunch it.

My girlfriend loves this collar because it's nearly invisible on our huskies. It's quite thin, so it sinks into their fur instead of laying on top. However, since it's thin and has less surface area, I think it digs into their necks a little more when they pull on a leash. What I'm trying to say here is that I agree with another reviewer who said that this collar works best as a low profile"tag holder", but isn't ideal for lots of leash walking unless your dog is a non-puller (do those exist?). We don't use leashes that much, so it works well for us.

Looking at the picture for these, you might think they are ski or snowboard gloves. You could certainly use them for that if you wore a separate liner glove underneath, but these have no insulation built into them whatsoever. They're basically like a rain shell glove...the glove counterpart to MHW's rain jacket of the same name in fact.

These gloves are pretty cool. Size-wise, they seem to run a little big, especially in the ring and pinky fingers. I usually wear a medium (Fox mediums fit me perfectly), but the medium in this glove is pretty roomy on me. Other than size, they feel good, and the D3O protection is sweet. Its not really bulky at all, but I tested it by punching some walls, and it felt fantastic, where I'm pretty it would have hurt with just the standard direct-inject knuckle armor most gloves have.

breathe easy

These are probably the most breathable full finger gloves i've ever worn. They're actually cooler than my Fox half-finger gloves, which is weird. You can see in the photo how thin and airy the mesh is; when you make a fist you can easily see through it. The armor stuff on the knuckles is barely there, but I guess it's better than nothing if you hit the dirt.

No! These gloves don't actually have D3O technology in them, as the description states. Six Six One had a different glove that was also called the Evo (weird, right?), and that one was a much beefier moto-style glove that did have D3O in it.

pretty nice

Only one ride so far, but so far these seem nice! Not a ton of protection, but way more breathable than most other gloves of this type. Note on sizing though: they definitely fit smaller than fox gloves. Fox mediums fit me well, but these in medium are a little on the small side.

Got the banana flavor, and it's actually pretty good. Still mostly tastes like honey, but with a hint of banana. A lot like banana runts actually. I was hoping these would give me a huge turbo boost of energy after eating one, but so far I haven't really been able to tell much of a difference. Then again, I'm not racing or anything. I'm sure it must do something, right?

I'm 5'10" and 145. Usually I wear a medium, but this shirt was way too big, especially in the arms. Even after folding the cuffs up over the sleeve they were still too long. Weird. So I got a small instead and it's much better. If you are borderline on sizes I would say go with the smaller one. It's a cool shirt though- sharp looking like a collared shirt, but cool and light and stretchy like an athletic/performance shirt.

These are nice glasses. I have a pretty small face, but these don't look huge on me like sunglasses sometimes do. I like that. It comes with 3 different pairs of lenses you can swap out, and swapping them is quite easy. I'm a fan of the "AC red" lenses. At first, they just look orange, but in the sun they have a purplish sheen to them as well. Pretty sweet. The glasses creak quite a bit when you're handling them, which I thought was weird, but once they're on it's fine.
