Fit: True to size

So I've only used this shirt once, but it is the type of shirt that you slip on and know that the manufacture nailed the fit and fabric. The cut is fitted without being tight in the bust or the hips, the drop hem keeps the shirt from riding up under a hydration pack. The Green Envy/Atomic Blue color pops without being obnoxious and matches a pair of stripped Injini socks.

I'm a big Injini sock fan and this are the same quality. My concern that the upper might be tight or not have enough give for my athletic calf was squashed as soon as I slipped them on. The sock provided the compression I was looking for with a little whimsy for my ultra runs.

I've found this to be a great sock for my trail running adventures. I was worried about them being too hot but found that the mix of materials are perfect for all temperatures for my area (-5 to high 80s). They stay put and I've not had any blisters from the sock moving or bunching up. They offer the right amount of support and compression. I've put many miles (hundreds) on 1 pair and they are still performing in cushion and support.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I was really excited to get this armwarmers but the happy bubble was squashed when I put them on. The fabric doesn't have a enough stretch to help keep them up and after just a couple of arm movements they start slipping down. The concept was good including the fact they cover up to the knuckle of my hand, cool looking fabric, the final product I give 1 star.

The cotton fabric is light weight and very feminine. The sleeves which have a slight bell shape at the end are long and come down to the middle of my hand which adds to the casual with style feel of this shirt. I normally wear a Med or a S/M in shirts, I got a medium, while happy with the fit could have sized down to a small.

I got my skirt yesterday and fell in love the moment I put it on. Was really surprised how flattering the cut was. I'm 5'9" and the hem hit the ground, I took advantage of the option to cut and shorten it. I purchased a medium, possible could have gotten a small, it seems to run a little on the large size. This is a winner!

What an awesome product. We have used ours for camping, hikes, general auto travel, any place we don't want glass or want to deal with a heavy bottle. We have even used it to store a couple of open bottles at home. Rinse with water and they are ready for the next use.

I've just been waiting for my other helmet to be at the end of its life so I could purchase the Vixon. Overall I'm happy with the adjustability and love the removable ear flaps for freezing water / air temps. One note, I got the pearl white and it came with HOT pink straps, not black like pictured when I purchased it.

I'm a 32D/34C and love this sports bra! Not too tight and provides plenty of support for muli-hour trail running and mtn biking. It is a double layer fabric, but doesn't feel too hot or bulky... and no extra padding. I think I could wear a small, but find the Medium very comfortable and doesn't ride up.

I'm a trail runner and decided to get a pair of road shoes for quick lunch runs. After reading reviews I decided to go with the Wave Rider 16, these have proven to be great shoes. I have high arches and a wide forefoot and this shoe handles both of those requirements very well. The sole doesn't have the appearance of having much cushion, but it really seems to have a nice balance of cush and a feeling of being one with the road.

I think this would be fantastic for hiking! The harness isn't too restricting at all, you don't have to use the leg loops, although I've not found them to be an issue as of yet. There is plenty of lead for your dog to walk in-front of you and since the dog is hooked to the hipbelt it leaves your hands free.

We just got our Omnijore Joring System and after 2 uses am in love with it for when the pooch must be on a leash. He had no issues adapting to the harness and loved the length of the lead as did I. We didn't use the belly strap on the harness for our runs (the instructions say it is optional), I couldn't find a reason to keep it on and don't see it being used with our dog. When off lead he ran as freely as he normally would. We purchased a medium, he is about 70#'s, it seems to fit him perfect. The Human hipbelt is comfortable, it is a little stiff out of the package but should soften with wear.

Overall I love these pants. While I love the stretchy part, they tend to be stretched out by the end of the day and have that 'I've worn them 2 days look'. The lower leg is a bit wider than appears in the photo, if you are looking for a skinny pant, these are slimmer cut, but not skinny at the calf and lower.

New to skate skiing, but after trying on several different boots found this one to have many of the bells and whistles of a performance boot but the comfort of a recreational boot. It doesn't have near the cush of a Salomon which seems to provide better control.
