These are great boxers. Everyone loves them, and for good reason. There's none better. So stop wasting time. Buy them. Every minute you waste reading through these 5 star reviews is a minute that could have been spent basking in the soul-filling luxury that these drawers provide. Go.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 145 lbs
Size Purchased: L

I got this in size M for my girlfriend, and found that the sleeves were too short, and the left pocket zipper was stuck closed. Tried to unstuck it for about 15 mins, to no avail. Returned it, and got size L instead. Fit was better, but the left pocket was stuck closed on that one too! Returned for another size L, and the pocket was fine. 3rd time was a charm!

I've only worn these a few times so far, but they've been great. I got them for trudging around in the snow and some occasional snowshoeing. The extra insulation has kept my feet toasty, and the waterproof membrane has kept them dry. They are a bit on the wide side, as Keen always is, so perhaps not great for people with narrow feet.

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.
