I love the DU/ER Slim Denim Pant. Technical denim may seem like a novel concept, but it makes total sense as a practical matter. The skinny jeans appropriately, but not obscenely skinny. The best feature is the stretch and weight of the fabric which is light without feeling cheap or thin. I would say the jeans stretch a bit more than your typically 1% spandex jean that you pick up at a department store. I love fit at 33"/32".

I have been looking for a lightweight, cool (temp) pant primarily for fly fishing, but versatile enough to wear around. This pant fits the bill. I love the Patagonia Guidewater pant for all of these reasons. I have used in the drift boat as well as for wet wading and they look good enough to wear around town for post-fishing activities. The DWR is fantastic and the pants are light enough to avoid overheating in the summer sun. The fit is nice with relaxed cuffs. I typically wear a 33 or 34 in waist with a 32 in inseam and the Medium fits perfectly

This liner is perfect to wear under any type of bike shorts or knickers for compression and a chamois. They are nice and snug with thinner material on the sides to maintain ventilation. Chamois is as good as any I have used historically.

I finally found a pair shorts that fit well (a bit slim but not overly so) and have the correct amount of stretch without the texture of athletic or skateboard shorts. For me, they hit right above the knee, which is perfect

Fit: True to size

After a lot of consideration among style focused winter jackets I went with this one and I am glad I did. I am 6'0" and 185 lbs and the M fits well. It is a big medium due to the down, but the slightly oversized fit goes with the style and is not over the top (I typically like tailored/slim fit clothing). Also, this jacket is very warm as it is packed with down fill (550). The materials are top notch and befitting of the Woolrich style. Lastly, I love the style. The blaze orange interior and camo lined hood are really nice touches. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase

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

I am 6'0" 180lbs with a 40/40 long suit size and the medium absolutely drowned me on all fronts: arms a bit too long, shoulders and chest very roomy. Granted, I preferred slim fitting/tailored items and I get the sense this parka is meant to allow layering. Overall, I really wanted to like the parka, but the fit just didn't work for me. Quality and style were top notch and I wish it had fit

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

I have put about 12 miles on these shoes and I wanted to share my initial impressions. First, don't be afraid of the weight and volume. These shoes are as light as any running shoe I have worn and the volume is not noticeable after about 15 minuntes. The broad base has help me improve my overall strike profile, but that is also a function of moving to a 4mm drop (this shoe) from a 10mm drop Asics Kayano.
The shoe fits true to size - I typically wear a 10.5 or 11 and it really is a function of width. I have really wide feet, especially in the forefoot area so I went with the 11 and it fits well.

The shoes come with a quick lace system as well as traditional laces and both function well.

I have run on both asphalt and rocky root-filled trails and the grip is sufficient for both.

I will check in later after about 100 miles of use for a more thorough review

I did an unhealthy amount of research on hitch mount bike racks and I ultimately decided to splurge on the Fulltilt 4. I am glad I did. It came down to the Fulltilt and the Swingdaddy which basically means ease of installation vs. the ability to access the trunk/hatch with the bikes on the car respectively. I am very glad I went with the Fulltilt as it can be installed/uninstalled in about 20 seconds. Another benefit vs. the Swingdaddy and other accessories is the the built in lock which saves the cash for an extra accessory, but more importantly it is built in and nicely stows. I would highly recommend the tubetopper accessory or equivalent for any non straight top tube bikes (most aren't).
This rack is worth every penny

This pillow is one of my favorite items. The memory foam and air combo is dreamy after a long day. It is not the most compact item in the word, but it is worth the space and weight as it is the best camp pillow I have experience and it is far better than the
"puffy jacket pillow" I have suffered through

I have ridden these bindings for most of the current season and I am a big fan. I upgraded fro the Union Contact and I am happy I did. The Atlas is a bit lighter and lower volume so the entire setup feels nice and compact. The binding is nice and stiff and the ratchets are superior to those on my old contacts (about three years old). I have a size 11 boot and went with the XL which fits my boots nearly perfectly. The multiple foot bed options allow me to really dial-in the coverage on my toes to enable a responsive toe-side edge.

Great belt that is infinitely adjustable given the friction-based nature of the system. Belt is relatively narrow such that it fits through my hiking pants belt loop as well as jeans without looking inappropriately skinny. The Fitz Roy logo color is amazing

These buffs are extremely lightweight and breathable. In fact, I wear them over my face while doing aerobic activities and I don't feel as though my breathing is impeded one bit. I primarily use Buffs for UV protection while fly fishing and as a really light neck gaiter while skiing. I would note that Buffs are not warm for skiing, but they will keep the wind directly off your face and keep the snow out of your mouth when in deep powder.
