I bought this jacket except my version has the hood and I am beyond happy with this thing. I am not good with layering usually and in VA in can get pretty chilly sometimes so when going to work where all I have to have on is my work t-shirt I can throw this thing over it and still stay toasty warm then only have to unzip it and I'm ready to go. If I do end up hiking though I have an outdoor research fleece pullover I wear under it also for extra warm and during the polar vortex that came through I still didn't get cold except my face.. I am really happy with this jacket and know that it will get the job done for years to come! My only suggestion even though this version doesn't have the hood is that the hooded one could be tucked way. Would give it 6 out of 5 stars then. I highly suggest this to anyone looking for a kick ass mid-weight down jacket!

I love this thing, I am always afraid of buying hats online after a couple mishaps of buying something that doesn't fit right or just looks dumb on me but this thing is pretty much spot on. With my hair buzzed right now it fits pretty great, its adjustable so you can make it work no matter what. My only thing I wear a 7 1/2 in a fitted hat and with most adjustable backs I am on like the last two or three notches and they can pop out sometimes. I am still on like the third notch with this one and is comfortable. Don't know how it will be when I grow back out, but for now I am happy with a fresh new hat to add to my collection!

If your getting up at the butt crack of dawn and like to sip your coffee slow then this thing is for you. The flip lid is perfect to drink some here or there and you don't have to worry about going to get a drink an hour or two later and it being cold. With saying that if you are the type to get coffee in the afternoon and just want to drink it down within an hour then move on to the next one. This thing can keep your coffee hot for a really long time and with that you either risk burning the crap out of your tongue or being awake til 5am (trust me this came in handy for writing papers during finals week). I am right in between and make this thing work so if you want a vacuum bottle that keeps your stuff hot and can quickly grab a swig then this is for you! Only thing I hate is that stickers won't lay flush on this thing because of the finish that is on the bottle. oh well guess this thing will just be a little blander than my Nalgene!

Seriously the sickest and most comfortable sunglasses I have ever owned. For the longest I had a pair of Ray Bans and didn't think I would be able to find anything to top those. I was wrong! I bought the Battlestation Black/Gold Glo and I am in love. The lense is super sweet and can wear them on the brightest days and on super rainy ones. They sort of make everything glow and seem like a sunny day so it makes those crappy days seem a little better. The things I like most about them is that they are a light weight frame, they don't squeeze the side of my head, and that the lenses are mirrored and no one can see my eyes when its sunny out. I really want another pair so I have a pair to wear day to day and when I am out on the slopes when I don't want to wear my goggles. Just have to save up for another pair I suppose! I definitely recommend them and would suggest these over anything I have previously owned.

Fit: Runs small

I just received my jacket again.. The first time I ordered a medium because that's what I usually wear since I am 5'6 and around 180 (stocky) but it was definitely too tight for my liking. I plan to wear it for casual wear and for snowboarding on warmer days since it has the STI Repel coating. I returned it and ordered a large. It fits much better, it is longer which is how I like it and will fit nicely with a base layer or just a t-shirt. Overall I love the design of the jacket so far and I am stoked to show this thing off on the slopes. Once I do that I will update this and give more info on how the STI Repel coating is and how it holds up to my standards!

how do these fit through the thighs? I have a hard time finding snowboard pants to fit the way I want them to. If they are too tight through the legs then it just aggravates me and I feel all restricted trying to ride. Anyone got any feedback?

Those famous lines "you can get with this, or you can get with that" is a perfect example of that. My gym has this exact training board and I absolutely love it. It gives you a lot of places to put your fingers and many that differ in depth and how many fingers you can fit in the spaces and on the outsides of the middle jug you have a nice sloper as well. If you really want to bump up your game, be on the fast track to send that project you just started then, or you just can never get enough climbing but can't make it to the gym or out to your favorite site then this training board was meant for you. Metolius Project Board is a smaller version which I actually bought for my room which is good if you don't want something this big but keep in mind the amount of pockets you have drops significantly. I wish I had just sucked it up and gone with the Simulator 3D. I get ten times more out of this one at my gym then I do the smaller one at my house and in all honesty this one really isn't much bigger than the Metolius Project Board. So get with this, not with that. You will get stronger faster and progress much quicker.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this watch for a graduation gift and was grateful to get such a nice watch. One problem I don't wear a watch. I tried to wear this for a little while and I still wear it when I'm around the relative who was so nice to give me such a gift but just a couple things grinds my gears. You HAVE to use the standard rubber wrist band that comes with it and even Velcro wristbands that you can buy at an uncountable number of places don't work because the strange way they decided to make the pin and attach the wristband to the actual watch, I understand this is a fail safe so you don't just lose a 300 dollar some watch because hardware failure, people wouldn't be too happy. I'm still not satisfied though. Also I worked at a summer camp where I didn't always have access to my phone and didn't feel like purchasing an alarm clock so I set the alarms I needed on this watch. One problem, it beeps X number of times then just stops. Doesn't do what a good alarm does, beep long enough until you become annoyed or WAKE UP to turn it off, sorry I don't wake up at the sound of a pin dropping, especially when I would be up from 7 to sometimes 3 without a nap in most cases. I even resorted to setting all five alarms at about 5 minute increments and at best it would just wake my friends up who were sleeping in surrounding ENOs and then they would make me get up because they wanted me to disable the remaining alarms. A lot of cool other features but this watch is just beyond my lifestyle, I would have been much better suited with a G-Shock with a Velcro watch band and maybe a few of the features but heck while I usually roam around Virginia and surrounding states I don't think I need different times from around the world. Just be a smart shopper.

I got a pair of these for Christmas a couple years and it was a match made in heaven. Ever since the first day they were absolute perfection, and you better believe I wore these every chance I got. Super comfortable and basically the only pair of sunglasses I have ever owned that I didn't hate the way they looked on my face. I wore them three years strong, with scratched lenses, a chipped and scratched frame, and having to find a replacement screws for the hinge, they were finally misplaced for good never to see them again. I had the Tortoise frame because I like things a little different and definitely thinking about getting another pair.

I haven't had these for very long but I love them already! I knew a ton of people who wore them and I kept getting told I need to get some, they are the best, etc. I can't believe I waited this long! super stoked about these things. Just heads up they do run a little small, I normally wear a size 8 and I had to bump up to a size 9. They fit perfect! All I can say is that I can see many days to come being spent in these things.

I bought this after a lot of thought because of being let down by the last beanie I had. It was a Nixon Regain beanie and it stretched out super quick and was not very warm. This one is great so far! I haven't experienced it with snow yet so I'll have to give an update later on but right now I wear it everyday for casual wear. Its nice and warm, thick, but I don't like the sag it gives without cuffing but when I cuff it its great. Probably going to look into getting another one!

I used to have a pair of Five Tens and my new pair of shoes are Evolvs, I like the Five Ten rubber over the Evolvs because it seemed like it would stick on plastic holds and smear much better. I bought this in hopes to give a covering of the stealth rubber that I missed so much and was skeptical because of all the reviews about how hard it was and things like that, but I am hard headed and got it anyways. It is recommended to give a layer of rubber to the toe box of shoes or patch worn out shoes. My Evolvs are nearly new and have rubber on the toe box so now that I am not in such an impulsive state of mind I think I am going to return it before its too late. Plus I found out that I can just clean chalk and other stuff off my shoes more often and get a much better stick out of my shoes. Good idea but would appreciate a better conceptualized product. Maybe instead of using a type of rubber cement that doesn't dry so quick so people can get it on their shoes better or something, When I opened the box it looked like they just shredded old rubber and threw it in a can for people to buy again, Barge rubber cement which I'm sure you can find at a hardware store, a cheap plastic spoon, and then the applicator is just a clear plastic pencil sized cylinder that looks cheap. I haven't used it and other people just may not have followed the directions but I would rather put my money towards something else.

Ok I started out with another type of Sperry Top-sider, wore them forever, bought another, and then got these. These are 10 times more comfortable than both the other two I had combined, I like the look of the other ones better but when it comes down to looking good or feeling good, feeling good wins here. These aren't ugly or anything just prefer the look of my other Sperrys

Between church and summer formal wear you can't beat these. They look great and are fairly comfortable. I have had two pairs of these and my first pair have been through everything, wear those for anything then have another pair for church and events that I really need to look nice.

Forget anyone who says men shouldn't wear flip flops. These things are amazing, I got them back in 2009 for free from my cousin when I was in his wedding, and they are holding up great and still look awesome. They are way better than the pair of reefs I used to have.
