Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have used The Vantage for a few days now. I really like the Boa 360 adjustment.. adjusts, basically hugs your head (like a boa!) instead of the Variance which adjusts only from the back. I bought the I/O goggles with the helmet and definitely like the integration.. much tighter than my old system which allowed cold air to enter above goggles onto my forehead. Great system!

I got these poles in white and I wasn't expecting to see the chrome handle. It's a bit flashy but not too much. The pictures above don't show it well.

These things are lightweight and do the job. The straps are padded nicely and easy to adjust. Nice big powder baskets come with it.

These babies are high style! :)

These gloves get the job done. They are breathable, look good, have adequate padding, wash easily, and don't get stinky.

The only con: They are not as grippy as I'd like. Sometimes on a descent when I'm braking and hit a bump, my hand flies off of the handlebar and brake. Part of this could be due to the exposed fingertips versus full fingered gloves, but I'd like for the palm of my hand to stick to my bike grips too.

Stay in place while running

These sunglasses are great for being active in. I wear them on all of my runs and they stay put. They fit comfortably on my nose and do not bounce up and down. I like that they came with 2 different sized nose pieces so that you can find that perfect fit.

The polarized lenses are clear and crisp. Even though the lens feels like lightweight plastic, they are quality glasses. In fact, I like that they are so light on my face and I can barely tell that they are there.

They look sporty yet trendy. These are my go to sporty sunglasses!

My runs go a lot better when I'm wearing these pants. Not only are they supportive and make my knees feel great but they look good so I feel better! They are tight so I don't like to wear them for long after my runs because I start to get itchy where they bunch behind the knees. While running I have no discomfort though. I like the 3/4 length vs the full length pants.

I love how the stitching is colorful and crosses all over the pants. It gives them a unique, fun look.

Even though these are not the CW-X insulated pants, they are still warm. I can't wear them above 70 degrees outside. It's so hard to run in shorts instead of these amazing pants though.

The only thing that I do not like: the drawstring waist band. It's weird tying it in a bow tie and trying to tuck it into the pants or letting it hang out. Also, mine was fraying so I put fray check on it which made the edge a little rough. Ultimately I pulled the string out.

Yeah the same things that excited me as a child of the 80s are still exciting me now. This watch brings me back to my childhood. Yes it's cheap and plastic but it's only $20 and it has indiglow! I have a few to coordinate the color with my mood. They all still look new after a few months. I like that the face isn't big on my wrist and it's flat so I don't bump it on everything. I wear this watch everyday.

Comfy yet cute
4 5

Fit: True to size

It's typically hard for me to find shorts that are a good length, not too tight on my thighs, and just don't look funny. These shorts actually look good on me! The fabric is a little bit stretchy and also a bit soft so that they are pretty comfy to wear. I bought the white and the blue contrast stitching is a nice touch.

Cute tank
5 5

Fit: True to size

I love this tank! The pocket is really cute. I got the mint color and it's a really cool shade of green. The fabric is soft and hasn't shown wear yet. The fit is great too. It looks really good on! It's longer than it looks on the pictures above as it comes about to my hips and I'm 5'5".
Another reviewer said that they wear a strapless bra. I wear it with one of those bras with the strap hooks in the back to make it an X and the straps cover it in back almost perfectly.

This recovery drink was essential to me as I was training for a half marathon. I drank it after all of my long runs. Not only did it taste great but it was filling enough to not leave me searching for carbs. It also left my body feeling great after the runs where I couldn't even tell that I had just pushed my body the day before. It definitely helped with muscle recovery.
I have the orange creamsicle and it was very good flavored. I like to call it my dreamsicle drink. :)

These socks last quite a while before showing any use. They do not rub my foot anywhere and they have a good cushion to them without being bulky. I've mostly worn them running. I wore them once hiking and they weren't high enough to keep the heel of my shoe from rubbing my ankle. I recommend them for use with running shoes.

This shirt does it's job well for wicking the sweat off of you. It looks good on as a nice change from a tank top or a short sleeve shirt. It doesn't look like a cutoff too. :)
The fit is tighter at the bottom. If you are debating between sizes and have hips, consider the larger size. It seems to scoot up on me to end up around my waist instead of staying down by my hips.

The coral color is more orange than pink and it's BRIGHT! These are very comfortable shorts. They are super short (at one point I was told I was wearing booty shorts). For lounging around they are great. The dri-fit fabric is nice to have but I probably won't wear these for a workout.
