Jess's Bio

I love all things outdoors & try to explore all the wonderful things Utah has to offer as much as possible. And of course I always make sure I have some killer gear to make the adventure as fun as possible.

And I live for POW days. ;o)

Function & Fashion
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

There's nothing extraordinary about this bowl, but it is nice that it can crunch down to a small size & the hanging loop is convenient. Doesn't hurt that it matches the Filson Reversible Dog Coat either.
We've used it several times & it's been holding up great - true Filson quality!

Bed fit for a King!
4 5

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

The urban sprawl bed is definitely one of the nicest beds out there. It's super plush and I love that you can wash both the cover & the inside pad. I haven't had it long enough to see how the padding will hold up over time, but will provide an update after a few months of regular use.

The large is quite big & would easily fit an extra large dog (great dane, st. bernard, etc). There is quite a big size difference between the medium & large - would be great if there was a happy medium between the two.

Every Trail Dog Needs This!
5 5

We only take our pups hiking & running on trails they can be off-leash, but always like to have a leash with us just in case (animal run-ins, parking lots/trail heads, etc). But carrying a leash (or wearing it) can get annoying very quickly & in the way of hydration belts/packs.

The Ruffwear Quick Draw Leash is a perfect solution for this! We always have a leash on hand & the pups barely notice! I wouldn't recommend using this for long walks unless you have to, but for short periods of time when your pup must be leashed, it's perfect!

This belt is BEAUTIFUL!! It's soo soft (and smells amazing). You can tell it's very high quality leather and the craftsmanship is outstanding. I want it in every color!

I was surprised at how long the belt was. I am a size 6 (28) & wear medium in pretty much everything. Unfortunately, it was quite a bit longer than I wanted (went around me almost 1.5 times), so I exchanged for a small & it's great.

This is a piece that's definitely going to get even better over time!

Super Cute & Supportive!
5 5

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

I am in LOVE with this bra! The back strap details are great! I love that I can wear them both crossed or undo the little hook and have the lower straps straight.

I love to wear this with open back workout tanks like this one: http://www.backcountry.com/oneill-synergy-tank-top-womens to show off the cute straps!

Another plus- you can put your phone in between the outer mesh & main bra if you don't have any other pockets!

I wash it in cold water & hang dry (like all my workout clothes) and it's holding up great after countless washes. I'm also a 34c & the medium fits great w/ awesome support!

Not sure why Insight considers this a dress since it is barely longer than some of their tanks & doesn't cover your whole bum, but it is super cute nonetheless. I'll rock it with jeans or shorts & it's super cute! I've also thrown a casual blazer over it for a dressier look.

The fabric is a nice thickness which makes it seem a bit dressier than just a regular tank. The arm holes are more muscle style, so I'd recommend a bralette underneath or a cute bra.

I wear a medium in most tanks & ordered this in a size 4, which was perfect. For reference, I'm 5'7" 137 pounds.

I got this along with the Roxxter & it's hard to tell which one the dogs like more! I got the Large size since I have big boys (lab & lab mix) and it's perfect for them! We play fetch & tug of war with it & it still looks brand new!

My boys are big chewers and this toy has held up phenomenally! Will definitely be buying more toys from Dublin Dog!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Still love my watch after a year of ownership, but ran into my first technical glitch w/ it this evening. I went to plug it into the computer (fully charged) and it wasn't registering w/ the USB port I plugged it into, so went to a different one. The watch went completely blank & looked dead.

Turns out this is a pretty common problem. My watch is now working again after completing the following steps & I didn't lose any data:
(soure: http://www.8bitrocket.com/2013/11/18/12768/)

1. Hold the light button in for more than 30 seconds. You will see no response, hear no beeps, nothing. This doesn't mean it is not working.

2. Let go of the light button and the do a normal reset by holding the light button in for 3-5 seconds.

The watch should turn on.

Hope this is helpful to anyone who may have had the same issue!

Fit: True to size

I just ordered a 2nd pair to start running in before I have to retire my first pair since I've put so many miles on them. These have held up so well! They're not too beefy & perfect for overpronaters such as myself!

Re: Sizing - I feel these are true to my running shoe size (8.5 or 9 in casual shoes... 9.5 in running shoes).

UPDATE: We've had this toy for over a month & still looks brand new! Our boys destroy toys & this one is holding up GREAT!

This is a GREAT toy! Both the boys love playing with it, that I need to get a 2nd one. Our lab, Sam, is a strong chewer, so I'm always a little apprehensive of how long a toy will last & after lots of chewing, it still looks as good as new!

I threw a few bits of food in the top & it's fun to watch them try to figure out how to get the food out. *It eventually will, but takes a bit of "rocking & rolling."

Another plus is that the Roxxster is made from recyclable material for all those earth-loving pups out there.

Love this tank. It's so soft & cute. The fit is definitely more loose than regular. I am a medium in pretty much everything & the medium is definitely a little "big" for a 'regular' fit.

That said, I love the loose fit of this tank & it's very flattering. Unfortunatley, it started pilling after a couple washes, but I just stopped putting it in the dryer, so hopefully it won't continue.

I love this sweater. It's so comfy and can be dressed up or down. I got a medium & it fit perfectly (I'm a medium in most everything). This sweater is definitely true to size.

I've worn & washed it quite a bit and it's definitely held up quite well. Definitely recommend it!

Update!

These are the BEST! I now own 7 of these - it's by far my favorite underwear! They hold up great in the wash and I can't tell the difference between a new one and the first one that I bought! Very highly recommended!

I just purchased this thong & was absolutely blown away how comfortable it was. It's no joke when it says that it's no-show. There are hardly any seams that show through. AMAZING!

I've only worn it twice & it seemed to wash well the first time, so I will provide an update to see how it holds up!

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large

I got this in a Medium as a gift for my husband & we could not believe how large it is! We had our friend try it on (he's normally a L/XL in jackets) and it was big on him. Definitely a larger carhartt fit.

That said, the jacket is super nice quality & definitely the high quality we're used to from Carhartt.
