First 100 miles
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 144 lbs

I've punished these shoes another 50 miles through more rain, mud, snow and ice and they have actually broken in pretty nicely. I am no longer worried about the shoe feeling a little narrow. Even through they feel slightly narrow still it has been comfortably so. Only wear I am seeing so far is on the outside heel strike zones and right in the middle of the mid-foot strike zones. No flaws in the upper and now unexpected deterioration that would wouldn't expect from the distance gotten out of them.

Great capri workout bottoms. They have a slit right on the back of the knee to make movement that much easier. Stoic is the only brand for running pants that I'll buy and instantly love. They do run a little small but not enough that you should size up.

Fit: True to size

I got this jacket to wear while running in the winter months. It keeps me warm, has a little bit of reflective detailing making me just a little more visible. I like the collar because it blocks the wind from going down my shirt giving me a little more warmth. Definitely needs washing after one good run because it gets a little stinky.

These are thin, light and made from comfortable fabric. Only thing is I wish I would have sized up. I comfortably wear a 30in waist jean and these in a size small fit a little snug, not uncomfortably but enough for me to wish I had sized up.

How else are you going to get a shot of you and your family in front of that monument you went to see? Honestly though, this is easy to use: pairing with the remote takes seconds, positioning of your phone is limitless, and the grip pads have a rugged hold without making your phone look like in was kicked down the street. Since it's so packable you can easily bring it along just in case your new facepage profile pick opportunity pops up.

There are three things you should keep on you at all times and one of those things is a knife. The locking mechanism is secure but easy to use one handed. The stainless steel handle is sleek, durable and doesn't smudge. The size if perfect to tuck into the coin pocket in your jeans.

Columbia River Knife & Tool has never disappointed.

Dogs get cold too
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Dogs get cold too but if I left them home I would never hear the end of it. Best part of this is the elastic straps on the buckles that allow mechanical stretch and flex in the fit.

Followed the sizing and went with the size Medium for both the 55 and 60 lb dogs.

These are my go to socks for hiking and trail-running. Just enough impact in the key areas to keep you comfortable while the rest of the sock is breathable to keep you going. Super durable too, haven't had to retire these after several seasons.

Ever been in one of those situations where you thought you were just going to be chilling but ended up getting thrown in a pickup game or ended up having to run around more than expected? This shirt is the perfect blend of performance features and a casual look.

First 50 Miles
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 144 lbs
Size Purchased: 9.0

I've put a weeks worth of running in these and broke them in with their first 50. I have taken these through ice, snow, rain and mud and they are holding up well. Only thing is, I should have probably gotten them in a 9.5, it's not that they are too short, maybe a little, but they are narrow. I am a little worried that they might pinch the toes if I take them out for any longer runs. So far the are pretty comfortable and I find my stride quickly.

I will try to remember to post a new picture once a week to keep you up to date on their durability.

Mmmm Potatoes

Like a side of potatoes with pan-seared trout, its sometime the extras that make the main course more enjoyable.

Growing up a spin-caster in the mid-west I got this package as my first fly rod because I didn't want to spend $500+ on my first setup. What makes this so great is that if fishing is an afterthought or a possibility when I am hiking I can throw the bare essentials in my pack and when I feel like it I can be casting within minutes.

I have had this rod for about a year and have not noticed any malfunction or defects and am very happy with the strength and durability of this rod. I have played around with additional lines and flies but you could easily get away with what is included for quite some time without getting any extras.

I would strongly suggest this kit for anybody who wants a no-commitment setup to get into fishing, or for the experienced angler that just wants to try out Tenkara.

Got me through my first 26.2

First marathon and I don't think I would have made it without the extra support. I started getting a little knee pain when I was training for my first marathon about the time I started doing 3+ 13.1's a week. I picked these up to help me continue running and for race day.

Running in these helped keep me on training schedule without runners knee and made it so that I could still mow my lawn the day after the race without the need for a cane.

The View is Like a Little Up-Kilt Action

Familiarity: I've used it several times

With two big dogs the wife and I couldn't find the right size tent; until now. The four of us can can sleep comfortably and when the wind kicks up to 30 mph you can rest-assured that everything will still be in place in the morning.

Walked around with these on at the Winter OR show this year and I got a few "cool shoes" remarks from some of the vendors I talked to. They are a little flat footed and don't really have room for orthotics so I wouldn't suggest wearing these for long if you don't have strong arches. Also, its pretty obvious that they were not cut from the same leather as they have colored differently as they aged. These are really a fashion over function type of buy which I don't normally do but I got a little sick of wearing my hiking boots to the bar. Bottom line, buy them then go work on your novel at the coffee shop.
