OK, first the good: These are super -comfortable and really secure. I bought them because they are really low-profile and work well under a moto helmet. They don't come out of my ears while I'm putting my helmet on or taking it off. Exactly what I needed.

The controls are excellent. Volume, pause/unpause, next track, previous track. Everything you need at your fingertips.

The bad: The bass response isn't great, but for this price, what do you expect (I guess). It's not terrible - you can still hear where the bass is supposed to be, it just won't blow your mind when you throw in some hip-hop or dubstep. The other not-so-great thing is the instructions, or the lack thereof. You're on your own when it comes to figuring out the controls. So I'll help - click the center button once to pause/unpause. Click it twice for next track and three times for previous track. Volume is self-explanatory.

Overall, I'm super-happy with these. I gave them 5 stars because of super-clean sound, and I kinda figured the bass wouldn't be anything amazing at this price.

The Patagonia Sport Top is a superb sports bra. I've worn it trail running and mountain biking during SLC's 90+ degree days. It kept me dry on a 4 hour ride, and the support was perfect. This is one of the better fitting bras I've tried; no rubbing on the shoulders or around the bottom elastic. I definitely recommend it to active chicas!

I have about 20 pairs of sunglasses but these are my daily drivers. They're the most comfortable and functional of all my glasses. The wrap is perfect, the lenses (bronze) are great in bright light, and their large size offers great coverage. Not to mention they make me feel like the terminator -- not that I've killed anyone while wearing them.

These should be issued to everyone at birth. They are the greatest. If every person from every country had a pair of Down Booties it would probably solve many of the world's problems. Maybe not the whole hunger thing. My dogs stay toasty warm in the coldest of Utah nights. They are super soft and very lightweight. They also give the wearer a comical smurfish appearance. How could anyone want to fight a smurf?

I've had my rack for 5 years and 3 cars now and it's been absolutely great. These crossbars are super super strong. I've loaded these things up with 100's of pounds of gear and driven across the country--they were flawless. A friend of mine in NC even rolled his car with his racks on (not on purpose) and the rack held up. The roof didn't. I was pretty impressed. I couldn't tell if he was...

The question you have to ask yourself is, “Do I want to be comfortable hiking or do I want to be comfortable sleeping.” I chose the former when I headed out to hike the AT. I decided that saving money and weight were more important than having the super comfy sleep setup. I'm glad I did. These pads aren't all that comfortable but they weigh almost nothing, cost very little, and are fine swinging around on the back of a backpack rather than inside it. I got used to slightly uncomfortable sleeping pretty easily and I think the payoff was worth it.

These work surprisingly well except for a couple of shortcomings that I can see. They are truly a bastard to pull apart (as are most skins). But that comes with the territory. I wish they were made for each size of split board, instead of just two sizes that are too short on purpose. Also a clippable tail would be a cool addition, too. Other than that they work really well.

These are some solid glasses. They weigh a lot for plastic frames/ lenses and feel like they could withstand being sat on by a relatively fat person. The shape is a little different than the standard wraparound shades you see these days -- they're pretty flat. You could probably prescriptionize these with some persistence.
