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.
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.
The fringe on these shorts is a bit much. It's long. It can probably be trimmed. Also, the cut on the sides is much higher than the middle. With the fringe and the cut, I just didn't like these shorts and returned them.
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.
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.
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 hoodie is lightweight and great for summer. The fabric has little holes in it to allow you to breath and the sleeves are 3/4 length. It's a nice cover up when it's a little chilly but you don't need a big hoodie.
These sunglasses are great if you want a pair that you can throw around and not care about. They have lots of fun colors and are a great, inexpensive way to accessorize with your outfit. They do say not suitable for driving though? Lens isn't perfect but I didn't have problems driving with them on.
This hoodie is slim fitting and the arms are a bit tight. It's really fun colors though and the perfect thickness for wearing at night in the summer.
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.
These are the only underwear that my boyfriend will wear when working out. He has about 10 pairs of them and just loves them. They stay put, support well, and wick the sweat away.
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.
If you are looking for very large sunglasses, look no further! They have a big, retro look. They feel comfortable on my nose and the lenses are very clear and precise.
We all know how exciting it is to find a dress with pockets. When you put this dress on you will be jumping for joy! The pockets are super deep!
This dress has a super cute fit and looks amazing on. While there isn't a shelf bra, it's fitted and very supportive. The straps are adjustable too. I'm 5'5" and it comes about mid-thigh on me.
I love finding excuses to wear it more often!
This tank has a good fit and fun patterns. However, I was hoping that the mesh wouldn't be so see thru. It's hard to tell from the pictures but the mesh is quite large. It will definitely keep you cool!
This coat is awesome. It's super lightweight yet it keeps you very warm. I'm always making people feel it because they don't believe me that it weighs practically nothing. It's not bulky and has a women's fit to it. I even got caught in a rainstorm in it and it kept me perfectly dry. I wear it all over: to work, out and about, and being active. I highly recommend this down jacket!
The outer fabric of these snowpants are soft and very move-able. They look like great pants for riding in. They run a little bit big. I wish there was a smaller size available.
