Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been a Smith Goggle user and fan for the past 7 years. I upgraded to the Smith I/O X (from the S) for the increased peripheral vision which makes a meaningful difference. As always the optics in Smith goggles are stellar and I have never once had fogging issues. Pair Smith goggles with a Smith Helmet (like the Variant which I have) and you are set.

I bought the Patagonia Nano Air Hooded Insulated Jacket for my wife as a present to replace some older fleece mid-layers. Everyone should think about replace their old fleeces with one of these as the material is superior (breathable and range of motion) and it feels and wears light than fleece. It is also a great standalone piece in the spring and fall (or winter in CA). My wife is 5'6" and 108 lbs and the XS fits great

The Roark Revival Paisley Eye Shirt is a great addition to anyone's shirt arsenal. An especially nice touch is the colored thread used to sew on the buttons - adds a lot of interest and style to the shirt overall. Fits is somewhere between standard and fitted. It was not quite as fitted (I like tightly tailored shirts) as I normally like but did not feel frumpy or baggy

I really like the Dues ex Machina brand and I have been looking for a great quilted shirt/overshirt so I had high hopes for this piece. The fit absolutely did not work for me. The overshirt felt bulky overall and especially in the arms. The arms we huge and seemingly built for a bodybuilder. I prefer my clothing much more trim and slim fit. This one is going back

The shirt personifies the confluence of fit, function (tech) and style. I love wearing this shirt as it moves well while looking great. The material feels very high quality(think heavy and durable) without feeling clunky or bulky. Fit is slim and modern and the arm vents are not noticeable at all, but are great on warm days or on cycling commutes. This has quickly become one of my favorite shirts

At long last, a tailored modern flannel. Love this shirt, from the fit to the colors. The material is soft and heavy (in a good quality way) and as I mentioned the fit is slim and very modern. The arms are a bit long, but the sleeves look great rolled and are nice and trim. I bought the navy version and the colors are slightly darker than they appear in the image.

Great jacket that looks better than you could imagine in person. Not overly technical, but that is not what this jacket is about. Warmer (no insulation) that I would have thought, but not a stand alone winter coat. I am 6 ft 0 in 180 lbs and a M fits perfectly with room for a sweater layer.

I recently upgraded to the Rio Grand Fly Line and I am glad I did. This line complements the fast action of my Sage One 9ft 5w rod. I typically fish small to medium sized rivers for all species of trout and this line performs exceptionally well on fast action rods for those conditions.

The bluetooth technology in these headphones is seamless and easy to set up. The best feature, in my opinion, are the foam inserts in the earbuds that fit into the contours of your outer ear and hold the headphones in place during high movement activity. I highly recommend the JayBird Freedom Sprint Bluetooth Buds

My wife just ordered this jacket and was happy to have found a puffy jacket with the look she wanted for every day wear. The hood has a floral lining and the zipper pulls are a braided leather, both details that make this jacket a great option for casual wear with any outfit. She has yet to wear it in cold weather, but it seemed warm when trying it on. She did order a S and XS. The XS was tighter in the armpits and just a shade short on the arms but the small was bigger in the body and gaped around her lower back. She went with the XS because she gets very cold and felt the tighter fitting jacket would keep her warmer. This jacket has a great look.

These boots are my wife's favorite to wear in the Winter. She prefers these for wearing around town when it is snowing or even when it is just wet. She has struggled finding a leather boot that she can actually wear when there is weather that not only looks good, but functions with puddles and icy ground. The Sorel Slimpack is a stylish Winter boot with a sole that grips. She has had these boots in the Shale color for two years and loves how they have worn. At first they are a bit tight when slipping your foot in, but they do break-in and become easy to pull on and off. These boots also keep her warm with the tall riding boot height and she always gets compliments on them.

As the kids grow and need new Winter boots, we always come back to Sorel. We love the classic look of The Yoot Pac Boot. This boot is warm, waterproof, and the kids can get them on and off all by themselves. In the Winter my kids choose to wear these most of the time, even if it is not snowing. We pass these boots down between siblings and they are still looking great. No problems with cracked heels or soles in the boots we have purchased. My boys are extremely tough on their shoes but the Sorel boots are still working great. We own several pairs in different sizes and each have been worn by at least two children. Buy larger sizes so you can use them for multiple years. The removable liner is a great feature as well.
