Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I love these shades. They're super light, have interchangeable lenses, fit my big head, and are comfortable. I bought the ones with matte black frames and gold mirror lenses. The Smith website describes the lenses as a brown tint, but they are definitely not brown. They are a neutral gray tint. I still like them, though.

In my opinion, they're kind of dorky looking. Fortunately I can't see them while wearing them, so I wear them all the time.

I have a big head and the L/XL fits it well. Be aware, though that it is a very lightweight beanie and, therefore, not very warm. That's not a knock agains it as it's great for days in the 30's and 40's, but you may want to get something more substantial for colder weather or skiing.

I bought this so I could get outside with my daughter and pass on my love for the outdoors. It has a ton of well-thought-out features. I'm happy with the size, too. I think the premium would be more space than necessary for day hikes. My daughter seems to like it, too, as she almost never complains while hiking and will usually take a nap or two while we're out.

I bought this for my bro. He's a pretty stylish guy, so I thought he would like it. I haven't asked him whether or not he's been wearing it, but I did notice it in a photo he posted on facebook 6 months after I bought the watch...so he must like it. Haha.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've taken these on a few rides and like them so far. The grips haven't slipped at all yet despite having only one clamp on each grip.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought this because I wanted a wider bar for more control while descending. My bike came with a carbon bar, so I felt like I couldn't "downgrade" it by replacing it with an aluminum bar. I'm not sure I would have really noticed a difference, though. Haven't had this for very long, so I can't speak to the durability. However, my previous bar wast an Easton carbon bar and survived several crashes.
