Catherine Greenwald's Bio

When not working with words, I can be found snowboarding, biking (mountain and road, I don't discriminate), and hiking. Indoors, I'm into good food & wine, and keeping the peace between dogs and cats.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had these for a few years; I got them in the green because that color was on sale, and even though it doesn't go with a thing I own I still bring these out often because they're so warm. I can wear them well past temperatures where I would usually pull out the mittens! Super breathable/fast-drying, too. I went out in the rain a few weeks ago and ended up completely soaked, even all the Gore-Tex stuff; we stopped by a fire pit in the resort plaza to warm up a bit, and I pulled off the gloves and held them close (but not too close!!) to the flames. They immediately started steaming, and within 5 minutes the glove's outer surfaces were dry. A few more minutes, and I put my hands into relatively dry gloves. Amazing!

I got this after returning the Heywood dress because it was huge -- this fit a lot better in a large across the shoulders and arms, but there's just a lot of fabric in the back. I think I just have to get used to this style. But the fabric is very nice and soft, the Sugar Pine color is fantastic (better than the photo) and the details are well-done.

Fit: True to size

This sweater doesn't have a ton of bells and whistles but says a lot with its understated military style, comfort, and obvious durability. I was impressed with how soft it was, given the loft of the wool; it's also clearly going to be very warm without any fuss. Hit it out of the park with this present!

I never quite understood why the Dale of Norway sweaters are so expensive, but after giving one as a gift I can see why. My husband's the kind of guy that will wear one thing into the ground, so it has to be of pretty high quality (his last go-to was a Patagonia wool sweater that was discontinued). Comfy for everyday, nice enough for get-togethers, and really warm and well put-together. It's worth the investment, because it's truly an heirloom kind of sweater, that will be going strong and looking good for a long time to come.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs small

These run way smaller than expected -- usually size 9 is a bit on the large size (I'm pretty squarely between 8.5 and 9) so it seemed like going with a 40.5 would be a safe bet. Nope! Toes were crowded both on the sides and touching up front. Admittedly, I have a fairly wide forefoot, but was somehow expecting these to be wider. Otherwise, though, they felt pretty good -- supportive and firm, like they'd be great for high-mileage types.

I usually wear a large in Patagonia, but was swimming in this. Too big everywhere -- shoulders, arm length (even though I have relatively wide shoulders and long arms), and just overall fit. Definitely recommend sizing down a size.

I went with this option because I didn't want to spend a ton of money on a hitch rack. Regarding the negative review, you definitely have to make sure the hitch attachment is cranked down tight to prevent wobbling, the hooks on the arms aren't the easiest to use, and you have to manually make sure that the rack is locked into place when you fold it up. That being said, once you get it working it's super-solid and works great. So, if you don't mind the tradeoff of needing to take a little more time to get it set up, it's a great value.

I've had this jacket for about five years and it's without a doubt one of the best purchases I've made on this site. I was initially afraid the fabric would be too thin, but it's perfect. Protective enough for cold windy days (with a puffy underneath, of course) but incredibly breathable on runs or during other aerobic activity. Whatever the occasion, this jacket just seems to work. And after five years of constant wear and plenty of washings, it still looks great! It may be on the more expensive side, but you get what you pay for.

I gave this to my husband, who is quite pleased with it. It's nice and light, and comfortable on long rides. He has a pretty small head and the small fits great -- the adjustment dial works really well.

My husband travels a lot for work and lives out of a suitcase for days at a time. The Medium Envelope helps him pack more into a bag and keep his dress shirts looking good. He can fit four dress shirts and four pairs of pants into it -- not quite as advertised, but enough for his purposes.

I have to say it's great to have somewhere to stash small things and my phone while riding, but the design of this leaves a little to be desired. Getting the straps tight enough is not easy, and the security of the velcro is a concern. Also, don't like having to take my iPhone 5c out of its case to get it to fit in the top sleeve.

I gave these to my brother for his birthday -- he's a serious fisherman so he goes through a lot of waders. He is extremely happy with them, says that the design is great, that of the ten or so waders he's owned they have by far the most comfortable footies, and "they are great to swim in." I'm not sure what that means, but he seemed pretty happy about that!

These look great and are comfortable to wear, but what I really like is that they fit well and don't slip, but don't squeeze your head either. So they're good for more than just wearing around town or driving -- took them out biking and was quite pleased.

Love the sound on these -- not mushy like you might expect on wireless headphones at this price point. You don't have to spend a lot for great audio! The wireless is super convenient when you're moving around, at the gym, etc. but I really appreciate the aux cord for watching videos on a laptop -- saves battery and there's no lag like I've sometimes noticed you get with Bluetooth connections.

I got these for my son and while it's been too hot to wear them much, he does say that the fabric is really comfortable and he really likes the fit, which is not too baggy and not too slim. He also likes that the cuffs fits snugly, so they're not flapping around like they do on some 'joggers.'

Fit: Runs large

My son wears these shoes for training (straight-ahead running) and lifting, for which he says they are great. He also ends up wearing them around a lot just casually. The one time they're not great is for quick side-to-side movements like you'd do in agility training -- that's where he's noticing some slop, which may mean that they run slightly large. So if you're planning on that kind of workouts, might want to size down a half size.

I just did a 50-mile ride last weekend in these and was very impressed. They sit very light on my face, so I barely notice they're there. They also stay in place very nicely, but without digging or pinching at the nose or by the ears. I might have to get several pairs since I always lose sunglasses I like!

These weren't at all what I was expecting, but that's OK, they're great. The fabric is kind of a stretch nylony-like material, very thin and breathable. The fit isn't too tight or too baggy, and I like the material on the cuffs. My only complaint might be that the pockets are a bit small, but that's not really a big deal.

Fit: True to size

For a long time, my husband has worn hiking shoes just about all the time (whenever he isn't forced to wear dress shoes). For years he wore a particular Merrell shoe until it was discontinued; he found another model that he liked but it was discontinued, too. The next pair of Merrells just didn't cut it, so when those fell apart he moved on to Salomons. He liked the first pair well enough, but wasn't too disappointed when those were discontinued. The next model he tried fell apart in less than a year, so it was time to move on, to these shoes.
It's been a year since he bought his first pair, and he loves them so much he just bought two more, in case they end up being discontinued! (I know, a little strange, but he REALLY likes them.)
He finds the fit and support are far superior to the other shoes he's had, but where they really shine is durability. He's really hard on his footwear but I have to say they still look great after a year of constant wear. The fit is true to size but a bit narrow; he found he had to wear them around for a few weeks before his custom orthotics would fit in there, but once they were broken in, they fit like a glove.
All in all, a great product, one worth stocking up on!!
