I was surprised at how warm these things are. My feet sweat in them everytime I put them on regardless of how cold it is outside. They are great! The only complaint is the lack of sole on them. It could be just a tad bit thicker, for more wear. A great houseshoe in the winter time if you have wood floors. I wear them around camp too

I think these are great shades, for their purpose. I have tried to bike, run and climb in these glasses and climbing was the only endeavor that I was able to truly keep them on my face without having to push them up my nose constantly. These have no rubber on them to keep the eyewear in place. They are very large frames, which is good for my 7 1/2 melon, but if you have a small face or head then do not get these. Unless you want to look like Elton John.
I still have to give them a great rating though, because they are a great casual pair of sunglasses.

I own two pair of these and love them. They stretch out so keep that in mind when ordering. They also get to stinking pretty bad when you don't wear socks with them, as I don't. Very comfy shoe though. You can also push down the heel on them and just slide your feet into them for a different fit/look. Very versatile.

This is one of the better bags I have tried out for commuting. The stability strap is positioned nicely for secure fit on a bike.
It's big, but that is a good thing if you are lugging a lot of stuff with you, and it holds up well with evenly distributed weight. The only thing I'd like different is more accessible outside pockets for the obsessive organizer that I am.

A very warm fleece pullover with great functionality to it. The fit is very old fashioned, and loose. Not form fitting at all, but it's to be expected. This is an old school piece from Patagonia and I would not expect them to change it, nor should they.
If you want a more fitted performance piece, do not get this.

This is the best fitting hat I've ever owned. I have both colors. The flex fit is very comfortable, and the crown of the hat is deep fitting, which works well for my huge head. I'm a size 7 1/2 and it fits me great, although I probably needed to stretch it out a bit first. If you have a very small head this probably will not fit you correctly.

I ride these pedals, or a different variation of them, on every bike I own including my road bikes. I am hooked on them. This specific pedal I bought, because of it's lightweight design, for my Orbea Orca. I know that this is a mtb specific pedal, but I find that it works quite well for my road bikes, even for racing.
Great power transfer, easy to come in and out of, low profile, lightweight. I have no complaints in this pedal. Highly recommend.

I have not had my pedals as long as the other reviewer, but I really like them so far. I'm a huge fan of the egg beater style and I even ride them on my road bikes. the platform design of this pedal is more conducive to the road than the standard egg beaters. Both are highly recommended for the trail though.
