Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I purchased this shirt knowing it would be nice to have a warmer high visibility shirt for when the days get seemingly shorter and colder. I was impressed with the fabric and the fit and feel of the shirt. It is slightly athletic fit as indicated by the tech specs. I am 5'11" and about 220 right now and bought this in a Large. As I start leaning up this shirt will continue to work for layering or as a looser fitting stand alone work out shirt. It is on the light side for being warm in the cold. The hands have a flip over cover (hard to describe) to keep the cold air away from your fingers. I prefer my soft shell gloves.

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

My wife has been getting Salomon XA Pro's for quite a while now. This summer, I opted for my first pair. I love these shoes but the insole leaves a lot to be desired. I now currently have the Superfeet Green insoles but I am going to try a pair of the Sole insoles. I really like how these shoes are fastened and the support these give. Also, these are fairly light. Although these are for training and running, I use them for everyday casual, hiking and running. My next pair will be waterproof for use in the wet weather times.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

This jacket is really nice, but for the price, I would expect it to fit better. I am not an hourglass, nor am I over weight. I bought the Large and the hip area fits well, almost snug, and the upper chest area and arms are really baggy, too much for layering. For the cost, I will need something that has a better cut for my body style. Will have to return it. Also mine was made in China, when other distributers are sending out Canadian made jackets that fit totally different.

I am 5'11" and weight in at around 210

Will be using these for my chainsaw so I do not have to pack my gas can and gallon of bar oil when I am cutting firewood. I am not sure what to think of the new cap design but it seems that it wont loosen up when attached to my belt loop via biner.

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

I have hiked with these a couple of times and they seem like they will last a while. If they do end up breaking or wearing out I will likely go with a Black Diamond or Leki but I think these will do good for at least a season or two.

I really like these pants. I bought these to give myself a break from prAna Stretch Zions and so far I have nothing but good to say about them. I have used them for hiking and they are very light weight and what little water is not shed from them dries fast. Hope these ones last, I am also considering another style of Kuhl pants for anyone who has any recommendations.
My only complaint is the brown has a green tint to it.

These are my go to camping, hiking, casual, date night pants. I have them in khaki and charcoal and will likely get them in auburn before spring. I wish they had a little more room in the thighs but I think I have a couple pounds to lose before spring.

What is not to love. I am outfitting my daughter for next spring/summer hiking and camping season. She loves being outdoors with me and I want her to have lightweight breathable clothing that will dry fast if it gets a little wet from splashing in the creek or playing under a waterfall. These shirts are great and they look cute too! Same as the "little girls" version.

I have bought two of these for my daughter. I bought one earlier this spring (4t clear blue) when she was 3.5. Fit her good only slightly big, enough to grow into. She is tall, petite, and long torso and extremities. She is now 4 and the 4t still fits and I just got a new one for her (girls 4-5, Afterglow) and it is slightly bigger than the 4t. My daughter has put this little fleece through the wringer and it has held up well.

These Merrell boots are awesome. I went with a full size larger but sent them back for a .5 size larger. They felt great but the full size was just a little too much room for those extra active days. I have already worn them in the first snow and they kept my feet warm and dry. The traction is amazing. I feel like the Alpha dog on the trail.

Bottom line, start at .5 size larger and enjoy the warmth and traction. These are bomber.

I usually wear an 11 in Merrell boots and shoes, I went with a 12 in these for no reason other than other brand snow boots usually require a full size larger for my foot. Though they do feel good in a 12, I feel that during snow hiking and snowshoeing they will slide around a little. The inner bootie is great and you will no doubt love these, but I would start at a .5 size bigger.

These Knickers would be perfect if they came in at about 2 inches longer then the knee, in my case they were about 2 inches above my ankle, I am 5'10". I love the fit and feel of prAna but the length of these were a deal breaker for me and I sent them back. I gave them three stars cause I really like the feel and how they fit and some people may like where these ride. I will be getting another pair of Zion's and just rolling the cuff just below the knee.
