I had been looking at this shirt for a long time and finally had to get one even though my usual size(small) wasn't in stock I tried the xs to see how it fit. As it turns out the xs fit me quite well, I think the small might have been a bit big on me. I like the low cut back on it, it has a flattering fit and is great to wear on dressier occasions.

Fit: True to size

I have been in need of new flip flops for a while and a lot of my friends rave about Rainbows. I decided I would give them a shot and I am so glad I did! When I first tried them on I thought they might be a little small but after wearing them around the house for a while they started to break in. I wore them non stop for about 2 weeks so I could get them broken in quickly and now they are perfect and keep getting more comfortable. They do run true to size, I have a womens size 7 and went with the medium in these and they fit perfectly! Do your feet a favor and get some of these now!

One Flaw

Hydro Flasks are my go to bottles, they keep the water cold all day, I haven't tried hot beverages yet but I'm sure they do just as well. I let this bottle in the sun in a car one afternoon for 3 hours and when I got back to the car there was still ice in it.. yeah, its that good! I have this in 24oz and I was sick of refilling it all of the time so I went with the 40 and I love it. My only complaint on the 40oz is that the lid design isn't very good, mine broke within about a week of standard use. The bottle is still usable though so I can't complain much, I just hope they come up with a better design for the tops on the big bottles!

I have had these for a while now and really love them. they are nice and light weight which I love and they are medium height. I like to wear them with boots, they are super soft and comfortable and the slide right into boots without any struggle. I really need to get a few more pair of these so I can wear them every day. Also, because they are Darn Tough socks you know they are just that and you shouldn't ever have them start to fall apart on you!

Just like its big brother the Base Camp Duffel Bag this little guy is super durable. It has a good amount of space in it for all of your bathroom needs and the cylinder shape makes it really easy to pack in your suitcase when traveling. I highly recommend this as a very durable and functional travel bag.

I got these for my Dad this past Christmas because he has a few similar pants that he loves and needed another pair. These pants are super well made, he says they are very comfortable and he wears them all of the time. They look nice enough to wear out to dinner and around town as well.

These socks are incredibly comfortable and breathable. They are made to have a tighter fit to them which I like because there is no bunching up at all. The fact that they don't have seams is also amazing, it makes the toes especially so much more comfortable. I have worn these at least 4-5 times a week since I got them and they still look like new. Darn Tough has one of the best warranties out there, they really stand by these socks and how durable they are. If you are sick of your socks getting holes in them after 1 season these are the right socks for you!

Fit: Runs small

Super comfortable pants, they have good stretch to them and they are light weight. They seem to be very durable which is great if you use them on the trail a lot. The sizing on them is a little small I think, I still stuck with my usual size (5'3 125, size small) but they are a bit tighter fitting than other brands. Despite them feeling a little too tight I still wear them all of the time! Do yourself a favor and get a pair before they are gone.

I had been wanting these for a while and finally decided to get them this winter. The fit of them is the best I have had out of any goggle. I have a smaller face and these don't make me look like a bug like a lot of others do. I have the Smith Vantage helmet and they fit perfectly together. I haven't had an issue with any fogging with them at all.

I have not worn mittens since I was little but decided to give them a shot this last winter. I couldn't have been happier with them! I bought them during a really cold time of the season where i was standing out side after dark for a few hours and had been freezing in all of the gloves I had. These changed my winter around, my hands were very comfortable in them, they stayed nice and toasty. They are super durable mittens too, the leather seems like it will last forever and the inside lining is really soft and comfortable. My only regret about these is that I didn't get them earlier! I have middle of the road length hands for women and I got the size 6 and they fit well. I went with the bright green ones and really like them, the color looks just like the picture.

I really wanted to love these pants but there was only 1 size too big in stock but I thought I would give it a try anyway. As much as I loved them these pants do run true to size and I couldn't keep them! I am keeping an eye out for a pair in my size now! The material is really comfortable, they aren't really stiff, they are fairly light weight and seem super durable.

Although I haven't been able to take this tent out too much yet I have loved it for the car camping I have done so far. It is really light weight, and super easy to set up. As soon as I got this I set it up in my room and was amazed at how big it was! Since using it outside now it still seems very big, not as big as it did inside though! It is a really durable tent and it breathes well. I usually will only be camping with a dog and one other person but decided that for the weight this would give plenty of floor space and not weigh me down. The first night camping in this my boy friend and I slept right against the walls and my dog slept across the tent in between us so i am definitely happy I didn't go with a smaller tent! I am anxious to try this backpacking later this summer. Th picture included is of the tent packed up to give you an idea of size next to a 32oz Nalgene. It isn't packed too well and it does include the footprint in there.

A lot of my friends have these shorts and absolutely love them. I own some of the Stoic womens shorts but always liked these a lot so I decided I would try them out. I am a 5'3 125 woman and got the mens smalls in these shorts. While they are really long on me the waist fits well. I have ended up rolling them once so they fit better in length but I think I may get them hemmed so they fit my little legs. All in all they are super comfortable, light weight and breathable shorts. I just wish Stoic made something similar for women!

This is a super cute and very soft dress but the style just didn't work for me. I was hoping it was a bit shorter but I'm 5'3 and in the back it came down to about mid calf. I don't know what I was expecting but I guess I just wasn't a fan of it as much in person as I was online. I ended up returning it but if you like these style dresses that are shorter in the front then you would probably really like this one!

I had been looking at this board for a very long time and finally decided to get it and boy am I glad I did! This is a super fun board to cruise around on, I don't do anything too crazy but it is nice just around town. It is a quick turner and has a lot of flex. If you are looking for a nice, lighter weight board that is fun to ride then get this now!

This is a very durable cooler. It has a ton of space in it, and the insulation is great so everything will stay cool for a very long time. The fold out cup holder is pretty awesome to ensure you don't spill any of your beverages and it even comes with a bottle opener attached to the zipper! My only gripe with it is that it has the holes for a shoulder strap but doesn't actually come with one. Luckily we had one laying around to carry it with but I would think that is something they should include.

My sister has had one of these for a while and I have always been jealous so I finally had to get one for myself. It was one of the best purchases I have made in a long time! It is great to have outside at the park when playing games or inside as well. The speakers can totally zip off from the rest of the pack so you can just use it as speakers as well. The fanny pack it's self is a little small, the battery pack takes up a lot of it but it held everything I have needed it to. The sounds is incredibly good! I highly recommend everyone get one!
