Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size
Size Purchased: Large

I got the Prana Breaker 1/4 Zip Hooded Long Sleeve for my father for his birthday and he's had it on every time I've seen him since. The fabric is incredibly soft, yet still durable. The fit is true to size. I went with the Black color, which has a subtle two toned stripe, and the green accent on the zipper is really nice.
I'm tempted to get one for myself as well in the near future.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I was really excited to be able to use this bag as I am a huge fan of on the bike storage. The quality and craftsmanship seems top notch. The downside is that the velcro straps might not be large enough to fit around all top tubes as i had to return the bag due to it not fitting on my frame.

My wife is liking her Pearl Izumi Elite Softshell Gloves so far, though it hasn't really been cold enough to take advantage of them yet. They fit true to size, are comfortable, and the color is just as it's represented in the photos. The palms have pretty serious amounts of pads, and they are soft and fleecy on the inside, which should fair for some awesome winter rides.

I bought this jersey for my wife for cool weather riding. She's super pumped on it! The pattern looks awesome, and it fits really well. The fabric is smooth on the outside, almost like a softshell, the inside is really soft and fleecy. It fits true to size, and the colors look awesome, just as depicted on the site.

Fit: True to size

I bought this hoodie for my wife and she's totally digging it. The neckline is super comfortable and relaxed, as well as really flattering. It's a little more lightweight than she expected, but says it's still really warm even if there's a breeze. It would make a great layering piece for riding or skiing, but is comfortable to wear over all. Long in the back, so it can be worn with leggings or tech tights for a run.

Fit: True to size

These were probably the 8th or 9th pair of Prana Kara jeans I've grabbed for my wife over the years. They are still an awesome lightweight jean, versatile and comfortable for just about anything life hands you.
She said that recently they've slightly changed the sizing though. They used to run really large and are starting to run more true to size, so if you bought a size down in the past years back in these jeans, you might want to go to your normal jean size these days.

I bought the Coal Frena Solid Beanie in Olive. It fits like most slouchy fit beanies do, and the fabric is really soft. It definitely gets the job done, but the color definitely isn't as photographed online. It's much more of a dark green, more evergreen than the brighter olive green online, which bummed me out. It'll still work with no issues, but doesn't have the look I was hoping for.

The first thing I noticed about the trail blazer tire was how much pressure I had to run just in order to prevent the sidewalls from wrinkling under my weight. I was running 10 PSI more than what I was running in comparable tires from other manufacturers. Combine that with tearing the sidewalls within the first week of riding and I think you get a tire that does not stand up to situations that plus tires should excel at.

I was going through my closet one day and found I didn't have a single pair of shorts that weren't mountain bike shorts. I realized I definitely needed a mid length casual short to wear around town. The Kavu Avalon fit the bill. They're comfortable, they have a drawstring so that I dont have to wear a belt, and the leg ends at the perfect spot, not "mom jean" long, but long enough to be comfortable to someone who doesn't normally rock short shorts.

They can run up in the crotch a little when hiking or running around, which is why I only gave 4 out of 5, but over all they're pretty nice.
