Not quite sure what influenced the decision to only make this in two sizes. If you are at the bottom end of the sizing scale for the medium but are within the sizes listed the helmet will adjust to your head and will fit. If you are right below the sizing that is listed then the helmet likely will be too large. Feel free to contact our gearheads via live chat or by calling 1-800-409-4502 for further help sizing this helmet.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I threw these on my commuter. So far they have worked very well. I have had less flats using these than the last pair of tires I had on the bike. The tires seems to have a fairly stiff sidewall which helps them resist pinch flats from pot holes. These roll well and don't seem to have much roll resistance.
If you are looking for a performance road tire I suggest you look elsewhere. If you just need a solid tire that will get you from point a to b this one works great for that. So far I have noticed very little wear and they seem to be holding up well.

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

I have to agree with the other reviews that these are some of the most comfortable flops on the market. They are amazing around the house or just lounging. However sadly these sandals went from being my favorite sandals to my least favorite sandals after they fell apart only 1 week after purchasing them. I wore them for 3 days in Costa Rica and both of the soles separated from the foot bed. I tried to super glue them back together and though this worked for almost a week eventually that failed as well. I only write this review so the avid surfer does not purchase these thinking they will hold up to the beach and the abuse that comes with high humidity and lots of water. If you are looking for an around town sandal that will make walking feel as though you are walking on clouds, this is your sandal. If you plan to hit the beach every chance you have look elsewhere.

When the fish simply aren't rising the only solution is to go subsurface. These San Juan Worms work very well in most of the rivers I have fished here in the west. The little bead on the hook does provide some weight to help these flies sink down to where the fish lye. Not often have I thrown one of these flies on and not had at least a bite. The red and orange seem to work very well here in the west and I have yet to try the pink. I expect it will have similar results.

Fit: True to size

I recently gave these shoes as a gift and I have feedback to share. The shoes have incredible grip due to the awesome rubber that is used on the soles. The mid sole is stiff enough to provide adequate support on longer rides but is not overly stiff which means the shoes are still comfortable when you are hitting the town. These shoes do run true to size and offer a little wider toe box. If you have a really skinny foot this shoe may not be for you. The support is great and the shoes are very comfortable. Great shoe for around town or on the bike.

I recently picked up a pair of these pants and I have to say they are nicer than I expected. The fabric is durable and seems as though it will hold up for years of abuse ahead. I got these for spring and fall hiking as well as for fishing in the summer once the water warms up. The UPF 50 keeps harmful UV rays from passing through the material making them ideal for long exposure to the sun. The pants dry quickly and resist water well. The fit is great and offers a good range of movement. I normally wear a size 34x32 and that is what I chose in these pants. They fit spot on! I recommend these pants for anyone looking for a great expedition pant that will go anywhere anytime.

If you are looking for a great outdoor pair of shorts these might just be for you. The stretch fabric makes them ideal for hiking or climbing. The range of movement in these shorts is awesome, so mantling over the top of that boulder problem won't be a problem. I love the feel of the material which is more supple than many of the nylon shorts I have tried, while the spandex provides the added stretch. These shorts are also a favorite of mine when traveling since they tend to not wrinkle very easily. These shorts are great for hot humid areas where cotton just seems to never dry out. I recommend these shorts to anyone looking for a pair of shorts you can wear from the outdoors right into the pub for some cold suds.
For a size comparison I am 5'10" and weight 165 lbs. My waist is a 34 and the large fits well. I should still have some room to grow in these if needed.

My father has a pair of these waders and they are top notch quality. The material is awesome and breaths well. It is super durable as well so you don't have to worry about snagging them on a tree while making your way to the river. If you are in the market for a quality pair of waders that will last for years and won't let you down then this is a great option. Plus anytime you get a goretex product you know you are getting top of the line. Another plus is these are manufactured in the USA!
The fit is spot on. My father is a 46 inch torso with a size 12 boot and a 36 inch inseam, the XL fits perfectly.

Really this review is not needed as you can get an idea of how well these buggers work just by reading other reviews and checking out the type of fish people have caught on these. I will say that if I am not catching fish then I always resort to these buggers and they never let me down. You can fish these on rivers and lakes and they work equally well in both environments. Another thing I love about using these buggers is how hard the fish hit them. You know when you have a fish on since they just crush these streamers.

I recently got a pair of these boots. I have used them a few times so far and I have to admit they are much more comfortable than I expected from a cheaper boot. Another plus to these boots is they are quite light weight. For the price you would be hard pressed to find another boot on the market that is this comfortable and lightweight.
The felt bottoms offer excellent grip on slick moss covered rocks. The rubber toe offers protection as well as keeps the toe of the boot from getting too beat up when you are hiking down to your favorite hole.
I have these in a size 10 and they fit very well. I normally am a size 9.5 street shoe and though the 9 may have fit the 10 offers enough room for thick warm socks and is not too large by any means. I would recommend going up a half to full size from your street shoes in this boot to accommodate for additional insulation when the temps drop.

I recently purchased a pair of these waders. So far I have only used them a few times but I have no complaints so far. For the price these might just be some of the best low budget waders you can get. They don't seem too hot, however I have not used them in temperatures above 85 degrees. They seem light enough to be comfortable on hotter days, however I typically am fishing in light weight pants and chacos when it gets really hot.
The materials feel higher quality than I would have expected from a pair of waders this affordable. I love the having the stash pockets and the hand warmer pockets when temps drop.
If you tend to bushwack a lot to get to your favorite holes or if you fish as often as you can I would recommend getting a more expensive wader. The more expensive waders do seem to have better seams and are typically made of more durable materials. However these waders work exceptionally well for the angler who might only hit the river 50 days a season.
I am 5'10" with a size 9.5 shoe. The medium fits perfectly and offers a little room for layering without being baggy or loose fitting.
