Fit: True to size

I've gone through my share of different synthetic fabric shirts trying to find the perfect workout shirt. This is not it. It still, however, does its job well. Its a little bit thin but does has good breathability and comfortable fit. Its sized like a standard Hanes white t-shirt.

Overall, I enjoy this shirt for running or heavy duty athletic activities. The fabric is a thin honeycomb polyester knit which makes it very breathable and quick to dry, but also leaves it feeling a little bit itchy when worn dry against the skin. For a long run, or a day at the water park with the family when you're bound to get wet when you're not expecting it it works well. For a casual hike, lifting at the gym, or wearing around town I much prefer The North Face Reaxion. The XL fits pretty much like a standard white Hanes XL tee after you wash it..

As many others have said, these are great for almost any sweating activity. The fabric is a perfect weight. Its thin enough to breathe easily, but thick enough not to become see through if you really sweat in a light colored one. It feels like a thick silk or super soft cotton which makes it comfortable for around town as well. Its much more comfortable but SLIGHTLY less breathable than The North Face Voltage. I enjoy that the fit is more like a t-shirt than a muscle shirt. You can order your normal cotton t-shirt size and be good to go.

I was a little dissapointed because this belt was more flimsy than I expected. After wearing it a bit, the metal eyelits will pull and misshape the webbed part of the belt. Overall, it does its job holding your pants up. Fits true to size, L/XL isn't going larger than 40 inches.

I usually like Nixon's leather belts but picked one of these up to try out. I ended up ordering 2 more. These things are great. The belt fabric itself is nice and thick. Probably twice the thickness of the webbed belts I usually find. Also, the buckle lock works well and has never popped open on me. The only thing that could improve this belt (for the price) is allowing the buckle to be flipped over so it could be reversible and dual color. Does run a little large. I bet the M/L size could fit up to 44" waists.

Ive tried loads of other briefs mostly for working out and running, but for the price none are better than these. They are a little thicker than other brands of merino boxer briefs but i personally dont like mine to feel too thin and silky. Unlike many of the Under Armour products they also have a fly opening. The magic of merino wool cant be understated. Somehow keeps you cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and odor free unlike any other fabric Ive ever tried. Every time I wear a pair of these out, I buy two more. They run a tad large in the waist and length.

Overall, I have really enjoyed these shorts. The cut and fabric make them better for running/cross training. They aren't cut or weighted like basketball shorts. The fabric is lightweight and cool, but almost too lightweight because the high-vis yellow pair I ordered I returned because you could easily see my underwear through it. I kept and love my black/island blue pair however. 5* if they got the sheer colors under control.

I was hoping to use these for the gym or other related workout activities, but the cut and hem of these make them feel like cutoff sweatpants. I didn't like that at all. They weren't heavy like sweats but they were bulgy through the thigh and bottom hem was raggity.

I tried on quite a few pairs of board shorts and liked these best. The waist fits about 1" larger than others I tried (Billabong, Quicksilver, RCVA) so I ended up reordering 1 size down, but they are also a little looser through the thighs and longer than many others out there. If you like the fit of shorts had 5 years ago, you will like these. Personally I'm not a fan of the super tight, shorter, board shorts that seem to be the fad right now. The fabric is medium thickness and dries quickly. 5* if these bad boys had side pockets.

I love the tweed pattern on this vest. The Nuptse vest and jacket has been in the TNF line forever, so it has many fans. High quality down fill makes this thing plenty toasty for my Salt Lake City winters. I did find this vest ran a little large, so if you're wearing it over another jacket get your standard size. If this is your single outerwear layer, size down. It also has a plum colored liner, NOT camo and red. This was a pleasant surprise for me and that's what the Melange color in the description means. Its a little more expensive than other vests, but real down feathers + TNF quality and reputation = a couple of extra bucks. Just the cool tweed pattern made it worth it for me.

I like these pants. I have been wearing and ordering different colors over a couple of years now. I can wear them for everything from wedding receptions to grocery shopping. They are a skinnier fit, but not stupidly skinny. They also are a bit long. My 36 inch waist pants have a 34 inch inseam. Colors stay vibrant over many washes and I like the little diagonal stitching accent over the rear pocket. It adds just a little Volcom flare that tells people you're not wearing your Dad's Dockers.

I cant rave enough about Merino wool. The stuff is just great. If I could afford it, I would have every piece of clothing I own made out of the stuff. Soft, great moisture and odor control, as well as mystical heat control as well. They keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. These socks get a 4* rating from me because they do wear quickly, but that's kinda the deal with Merino wool. I haven't found a brand that wears any less quickly than these when worn 7 days a week. I have been wearing these almost exclusively for years and notice almost never does Stoic make the same color combo socks twice, so if you fall in love with a color combo stock up because they may not offer it in that style again. I would also recommend you size down if looking for a true NO-show sock. They are cut more like ankle socks than no shows.

Many reviews already written about these super affordable Merino wool boxer briefs. The fit is great, they are plenty thick, and very soft. I use these in the gym often and havent had any pilling issues yet. And, not to get too detailed, but the odor eliminating effects of Merino wool are for real. Try out one pair and I think you'll be making another order for several more soon after.

I am in love with this company and their hats. This was my first beanie from them however and I was not stoked about the fit. The photos on their website show beanies with extra length so you get that loose look in the back of the hat, but these fit like a skull cap. No extra scrunched up material here. It was soft and tightly knit, so I dont have any doubts about the warmth, but I returned it because I wanted a looser fitting beanie.

The title explains it all. I've used about every reasonably priced wax on the market including some ski racing specific waxes and this stuff is my new favorite. I work on a sign set up crew at Park City Mountain Resort with some skiers and after I waxed my board they asked "What did you put on your board? Lightning?". I combine both cold and warm waxes for an all temp coating. Spring riding hasn't rolled around yet so I havent used the warm on its own, but I have been pleased combining them so far. Easy to iron and scrape with a non-offensive odor. Also lasts quite a while. The most important part though is this stuff is FAST without spending race wax kinda money.

I purchased these thinking they were more technical. They didnt have any insulation and with only 3 eyelits on the laces its tough to see these working for something like snowshoeing. I purchased the black leather color and the toe is a gray rubber, not suede fabric. That being said, the style otherwise is awesome and waterproofing a plus, so if you are looking for an around town boot these would be killer. Something to be more technical like winter hiking or working outdoors, look elsewhere.

Usually, people shop for sunglasses based on looks. So, if you like these then you like these. They are slightly bigger and more square than Oakley Frogskins. A little smaller than their Holbrooks. The frame construction is fairly sturdy. I worry about the interchangable ear pieces though. The earpieces snap on and off sliding over a small ball bearing type plastic nub. If you swapped the earpieces consistently, I think the nubs would rub off and no longer hold the ear pieces to the frame. Also, the lens optics are a little sub-Oakley quality although they are MUCH better than cheap-o imitators like the Neff Daily Shades. Overall, I am very happy with the glasses, I am just partial to Oakleys construction and lenses when paying the same price. On sale, I would give these 4*'s and prefer them over the above Oakleys. If you need another celebrity face to look at, you can also find these on Aaron Kauffman in this seasons (3) Fast 'N Loud series.
