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

Bought these to wear kayaking and ended up wearing them to spear fish, flyfish.. basically anything I do in the water.

Stretchy and comfy and quick drying and not clingy. I hate shorts that cling. They don't have built in mesh, so you freeball- which is what God meant us to do.

The closure baffles me. There are like 6 holes and I never lace them the same way twice. Maybe I'm the only one that hasn't figured this out? I mean, I'm pretty handy-I put a brake master cylinder in my 77' Land Cruiser the other day, but can't lace my pants?

I highly recommend these shorts and would buy another pair in another color. I only DON'T wear these when their dirty and I have to wear other trunks.

This is a vid from when I was learning - but the Stohlquist out performs my paddling buds' dry tops for one main reason: reinforced shoulders and arms. Their tops get ripped when they flip and scuff rucks, mainly on their shoulders. That is why they have drippy duct tape hanging off their tops.

(If you get bored FF to the end, but don't miss the ending ;-)

I rec'd these in just in time for a big snow storm. I rode my ATV and my finger tips got a little chilled with the liners that came with the gloves. But, I have a pair of Smartwool mittens that I used as liners and BAM - perfect.
These will be great ski gloves and if they can keep me warm while riding (wind chill) these can handle anything.
When you wash them, turn them inside out when before putting them in the dryer - it will shorten the dry time.
Great Mitts.

Been using this watch since Christmas 2012. Mainly I use it as a trail running watch, but also on a few winter hikes in the Appalachians.. It grabs the signal pretty quickly and is very accurate (after I updated the software). IMPORTANT to keep the software updated.

If you are just a runner this probably isn't your watch. If you Hike, Hunt, Run, etc - this is your huckleberry. I like the Garmin Connect features which allow you to share maps. I was talking to a guy about a trail that we run and I was missing a turn that would take me on a longer run by the river. After about an hour of, "you know where it gets sandy - just after the power lines..."he just sent me his route and I saved it on my watch. Very cool and practical.

I look forward to using it more for hunting and winter backpacking this year. I will be carrying my JOOS to keep it charged while in the backcountry. When in GPS mode it can suck the battery.

Hope y'all find this helpful.

Cheers!

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

I wore this for the first time a few weeks ago on an NC river. I T boned a rock hard enoug to dent my bow, and then promptly swam. When I made it to the bank the rocks were coated in ice, but my upper body was dry as a bone. My lower body was wet (pants from another company)- so I may return those 'leaky britches' and get some Stohlquist ones. I couldn't be happier with the shirt. The rest of the paddle was quite enjoyable with my core all warm and toasty.
I love the design - the reinforced shoulder/arm areas is bomb proof.
Cheers,

I'll update as I use it more.
