Got our kids in to these helmets recently and we should have done it sooner. This helmet is a universal child size helmet with a dial system. No need for specific sizes, if your child fits the size range then you can adjust the dial to an exact fit. Kids love it and say it is comfortable unlike their older helmets that were heavy and slipped all over the place.

We now own one of these for both our 8 and 5 yr olds. They love having their own packs for mountain biking and hiking. There is enough room to carry snacks, small sunscreen, rain jacket and even an extra tube for their bikes. Straps adjust for the perfect fit even on the smaller 5 yr old.

These little boy board shorts are great. The American flag print with muted colors is very classy. These look awesome on my 5 1/2 year old. They hit above the knee on him and are a comfortable but not baggy fit. Also appreciate that these shorts have an elastic waist with tie. Makes it possible for the little guy to get them on and off with out having to tie, but the tie gives extra adjustment for fit if needed.

In a sea of old man performance fishing shirts, this shirt stands above the fray. Not only does the Western Rise Bodie Shirt look great, it is highly performant resulting in a product you should own. The shirt is constructed well and has a number of small details (the fold over pocket) that add that extra bit of uniqueness that puts this shirt over the top. The fabric is water resistant and will bead water post submersion e.g., post fish release. Fit is true to size and on trends to the slightly tailored side without feeling confining in any way. This shirt truly excels at making you not look like and old man on his way to a SEC tailgate on a Saturday morning.

Many, me included, have balked at Yeti Coolers due to stick shock. They are worth it and the YETI Hopper 30 is no exception. This cooler does an exceptional job of keeping anything cold for very long periods of time. I love the portability of the Hopper 30 for day trips of long drives. If you are looking to keep food for multiple humans cold for multiple days I would go with one of the coolers, but if you are looking for the cooler to throw in the back of you truck for a fly fishing trip or a day at the beach look no further. I paired my hopper with a YETI sidekick and bottle opener. Despite the price tag, I have not regretted my decision to purchase this cooler for one moment.

You may ask yourself whether you need another jacket...you need this one. The Arc Teryx Atom SL bridges the gap between winter and those other seasons not called winter. The 40g of insulation is absolutely perfect for spring days, cool summers nights at altitude or a fall trail run. Historically, I have thrown on my rain jacket in the aforementioned occasions but have found it either lacking any sense of warmth(aside from blocking the wind) and not suited for aerobic activity. This jacket allows for freedom of movement while shedding ambient moisture and provide core warmth. The fit is trim, which I love and it packs down well such that I can easily throw it in a pack without noticing added weight or taking up much space. I highly recommend this jacket

My 5 year-old wore this on a recent vacation. He went from sandy beach to chlorinated pool every day for a week with this rash guard. It stood up to the test of sand, chlorine, and a life jacket. The sleeves are longer than typical t-shirt length and hit above the elbow.

Best socks! Stance socks are comfortable, soft, and the designs and color combos add some fun to your sock drawer. These socks are taking over my wife's drawer since she has bought them in every color. She wears them daily with running shoes or even with her ankle boots.

My wife bought this hoodie because the color and fit appealed to her. After wearing it a few times she is very pleased with the fit and the color is a great. It runs small. She usually wears an XS but has long arms and felt it ran a bit tight and slightly short in the arms and waist. A small gave her the perfect comfortable fit. Perfect light hoodie to throw in for any activity. Her measurements are below.

We decided to get the Flex for our kids and my wife has one as well. It has been a great way for the kids to understand how much they are or are not moving during the day. It is awesome to see them interested in how much activity, sleep, water, etc they are getting each day. In fact, having the kids wear the flex has made us more aware of their sleep quality. Something that kids don't often report on themselves. After the first night our older son's sleep data was eye opening. He was having very restless sleep. We had no idea and are very thankful we started using the flex so that we can try to help him improve his sleep quality.

The flex is more basic than other fitbits but it is perfect for our purposes. It does not track floors climbed or monitor heart rate. They are sleek, water resistant, has at least a 5 day battery life, sync easily with the app and seem very accurate.

Also appreciate how it comes with a small and large size band in each box.

My boys love their Patagonia trucker hats. They wear them everywhere they can...hiking, beach, pool, playing outside. They are adjustable and fit a wide range of sizes. Adult trucker hats are too large for my wife, so she often grabs the boys' hats and loves wearing them as well. Lots of great colors and logosto choose from that change often.

My kids love their Patagonia hats. They wear them outside to play, hiking, and to the pool and beach. Love the designs and colors as they change each year. The hats are adjustable and fit a wide range of sizes. In fact, adult trucker hats are too large for my wife, so she often grabs a kid's hat and they fit great.

My wife was excited to find the Pembina tank. Unlike many tanks that she owns, the Pembina gives full coverage of your back, providing more coverage from the sun when needed. She loves the deep Marianas blue. This tank hits at the lower hip, perfect if you like a longer fit.

My wife has three pairs of these yoga pants. They are amazingly soft and she says she could wear them all day every day. She loves the space dye pattern and colors. They do tend to slide down just a bit, but she does not find it to be an annoyance. Still highly recommends these to everyone looking for comfort.

My wife ordered this product and liked the tank over all but returned it, due to the fact that it does have openings on both sides that run from under the arm down to the hip band. That wasn't a feature she was looking for, but really liked the style of the straps and the built-in bra. The fit is loose and has a fitted band that sits at the hips.
