Gordonlightfootsbiggestfan's Bio

I really dig skiing deep deep powder, and have done so in Utah for the past five years. I miss my old XXX Bandits and am pining for a replacement of these all mountain bad-asses. The Watea 94s I demoed a few times last year may be just the answer.
I have recently taken to cruising around the streets on a touring bike that feels like I am riding around on a plush 70s era couch. My advice, get a steel bike and take your time, you will find yourself smiling a lot more.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 190 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

I wear a large in most shirts, a large in this shirt was much too big for me, so I returned it. When trying on I wanted it to work, seems like a fine shirt...so it goes.

Fit: True to size

I wear a size 9 in most instances, and these fit very nicely in the size 9. They seem well built, though I have not used them a ton. Shoveling and hiking in single degree weather were no match for these boots, they kept my feet warm and comfortable.

I wear a size 9 shoe and the mediums work great, both on hiking and pack boots. They add a degree of confidence on icy sidewalks, allowing much more mobility in the winter, I highly recommend getting a pair.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I purchased these as a gift, the recipient has had these socks in the past and enjoyed them. She is at the line size wise of the small/medium. She likes the mediums, as the smalls tend to be a bit tight, and with the stress tend to wear out faster. Hope this helps!

I bought these as a gift and must say they are super cute. The recipient told me she hovers at the small/medium sizing line and prefers the mediums. Going bigger means they are not so tight and constricting, and she has found that they last longer as there is less stress on them. Hope this helps.

I bought these as a gift for someone already familiar and happy with these socks in the past. That is about as good of an endorsement as you'll get.
She wears a shoe size right at the cusp of the small/medium sizing, and has found that going with the medium is best. The smalls will tend to be too tight and wear out faster.
Hope this helps, oh and the socks are really cute.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is the second of this particular pack I've owned. Not long ago a friend passed through town with a battered and tattered piece of luggage, it was pretty sorry and he was at risk of losing items if he wasn't careful. I kicked down my last Osprey Porter to him, one that had held up really well and did everything I needed from it.
This new one is upgraded, the pockets have more divisions in them, always nice when you want to keep things straight on a trip. I've found it works great for a four day weekend, no trouble fitting everything I need in it. If I were to head to a tropical place, one where little was needed in the way of clothing I am confident this pack would work for any amount of time.
The backpack straps are very comfortable and super easy to stow when you need to. Bottom line is this is a great piece of luggage.

This hat has a pretty low profile, see the picture in the other fella's review. It has a bit of a collapsed look, fits nicely and is comfortable. Finally, the buffalo standing atop two rocks is pretty hilarious, I guess it is trying to scope out a nice grassy area in the distance.

I have used this on several camping trips, as well as in the yard and even indoors; it is a great chair. Lots of times I will couple the chair with a cooler, creating a pretty nice ottoman set up.
It will take up a bit more room than lots of camping chairs while in transport, but the comfort and overall quality of the build should more than make up for that. I would not hesitate to buy this chair again.

High visibility vests are great, just try one. If you wear it for awhile and then go on a ride or two without it, you will notice that the cars give you less room when you are not wearing the vest. The vest fits pretty well, I wear a large, wherein with a Pearl Izumi I have worn an extra large in the past.
A complaint I have are the rear pockets hanging out and catching on my seat when I remount at a stop light, probably pretty easy to remedy if I just pay closer attention. Though the pockets are not stretched out by me, I have not used them.
Overall construction seems good, hopefully it lasts me for years to come.

I gave this as a gift and have received only rave reviews since. He has had it a few months now and loves the versatility. It blocks wind well while still being able to breathe, and it will keep you dry for a bit unless the rain is really hammering down. Added bonus, it looks sweet, can be worn out on the trail or out on the town, hard to go wrong!

This is my second pair of these shoes, and I have been happy with both pair. The main use for these is day to day wear in the warehouse, they provide support and comfort when spending a lot of time on concrete. I have also found them to work very well for hikes and just beating around town. Added bonus, they are conducive to my flat pedals, and the venting is nice on longer rides. It is likely I will buy another pair of these down the line.
I range in the 8.5 or 9 with most shoes, in these and other Merrells I go with a 9.

I used this a few times and am very happy with it. I have a Big Agnes Storm King bag which tapers at the top and a regular pillow would bunch up and not be very comfortable. This pillow fits very nicely in the bag. It is also comfortable and soft. The valve is a little funky, but I haven't run into problems with it, just read the instructions printed on the valve itself and you should be fine. I recommend this pillow.

I wear an 8.5 or 9 shoe, the medium size of these fit very nicely. On both long hikes and every day use these socks have performed very well. The cushion makes all the difference in comfort, and they stay up nicely, not falling around the ankles as lower quality socks may. Highly recommend these socks.

I wear an 8.5 or 9 shoe, bought the medium socks and they fit great. They stay up above the calf, I have had no issues with them falling to my ankles.
My use has not been too heavy, a couple of short hikes and a few days at work. They seem like they will get the job done for years to come, well constructed and comfy are the keywords for these socks.

I got this as a gift for my mom and she is liking it thus far. Her use is around town, and she likes the cut for bopping about, as the cut is not athletic. She even said, "I like how it fits a short, chubby person." Her words, not mine (she's a wonderful lady).

She likes the hood, finds it very functional, fitting nicely over her hatted or non-hatted head. Also the pockets are nice and deep with handy and well designed pulls.

As for warmth, it has stood up to chilly temps, but truth be told she doesn't really venture out too often in the bitter cold, and if she does she has a warmer coat for those occasions. Most of her winter is spent in Utah, so there are cold days, but not Minneapolis-Alberta-Clipper plowing straight through to your bones for weeks kind of cold.

Overall she really digs this jacket, and she and I find the purple/dahlia white colorway very nice.

I purchased these as a gift for my father and he is loving them. I have had a pair for several years and they have held up very well, being used skiing, cold weather biking and general cold-weather hijinks.

They hold up better than a pair of 200 weight boot-top skivvies I've had for several years. It has been my experience that the heavier the weight of the merino the longer they will last. That could be me treating things wrong, but I usually follow care instruction pretty well.

Bottom line, you can't go wrong with this pair of long johns.

I purchased this to be a lighter softshell, an alternative to my fleece backed softshell that I have love but is for colder weather. It has worked well in just the several uses it has seen, including casual (temperatures of 50ish) and biking (temperatures from 35-45F). I am 5'10" and about 190 pounds, the large fits nicely, it seems to run a little long (good as I am long in the torso). Looking forward to more use, and I consider it a good value.
