I bought this for my 2 year old daughter. I think I was a little overly optimistic about the fit. It is just a little too big for here. We are going to keep it around and pull it out in another 6 months or so. It is a fantastic helmet and an significant step up from the interim box store helmet we have her in now. As fast as these kids grow, It won't be long be for she will be wearing it, and with as much adjustability as it has, it will be around a long time.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size

This is will be an excellent light jacket for my daughter. She just turned two, and the fit is perfect. I wish she would stop growing so fast so her clothes would last long enough to wear a couple times. You may want to size up a little on this one to make it last. It is a great looking jacket.

I want to point out that only the torso has the fleece lining. This makes it great for a light jacket, but if you were thinking this would be something for really cold weather, you may want to try something else.

Excellent Bag
5 5

This bag is the perfect roadside toolbox. It tightly fits everything you need to get you back on the road after a flat. I carry the Blackburn Wayside CO2 nozzle, a CO2 cartridge, 3 tire levers, Park Tool IB-2 set, and a Continental race light tube. There is still a little room I could throw in a key or some patches. The whole thing sits very discreetly under the saddle.

Size Purchased: 10.5

These are a great pair of shoes. I got the gray version, and I really like the look. They are comfortable and fit me well enough.

I usually wear 10.5 and that is what I got with these. I like to wear my shoes really loose so I can slip them on and off without tying the laces. I might have liked a little more room in the toe box. I think over time, once these break in, I will appreciate the initial tightness.

The one issue I have, and this might be unique to me, is with the laces. There are two sets of laces (light and dark) and you end up with a confetti of lace on the top of the shoe once they are tied. Because I don't like tying my shoes this becomes a hassle. For those of you that do, the duel laces let you get a custom fit that other shoes might not let you achieve.

Fit: True to size
Size Purchased: 10

I wear 10.5, but I since most flip flops don't come in half sizes I usually size down. The size 10 fit my foot well. I would prefer to have them just a little larger, but I have a feeling the 11 would be too much.

The quality of the sandal isn't bad. They didn't wow me, but it will work. For the price, they are exactly what I was expecting. They look tough enough to last me a few summers.

Like all flip flops they will need to be broken in, but that is part of the fun. The straps are comfortable enough that part of the breaking in process won't involve blisters (an experience I have endured in the past).

Black and Blue
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I am very impressed with this bike. It is a beautiful ride. There is only one image of the black frame on the page, so I was a little hesitant to pull the trigger on it. After seeing it in the flesh, I am glad I went for it.

I am 6'€™0"€ with a 34 inseam. A few people told me that Ridley'€™s tend to size big, so I went with a medium. The medium comes with a 120mm stem, 172.5 crank and 42mm handle bars. I swapped out the stem for something a little shorter, and I feel like overall the bike fits me pretty good.

A friend of mine has one of these, so I was able to ride the bike in my size before making the purchase. I was very impressed with the ride quality especially in this price range. The bike is light and stiff and makes for a great all around bike.

For now it gets 5 stars. Once I put some miles on it, I'€™ll be sure to update.

A Backpacking Staple

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used these bottles for years, and I will continue to do so. They are solid, they don't leak, and they they fit perfectly in my pack. I do recommend buying a narrow mouth bottle for drinking. I use the wide mouth bottles for packing cooking water and refills for my drinking bottle.

I was looking for a floor pump after spending the last year using the one at work or my small hand pump. It was getting to be unmanageable keeping my tires inflated and it was a bit unsafe.

I found this guy at a very reasonable price and pulled the trigger. My first impression is that it felt solid. The pumps we have at work I consider to be the bar for floor pumps, and this felt on par. It does have more plastic parts then other more expensive pumps I've used, but It works and with a lifetime warranty I feel confident this thing will be around for a long time.

I do have to comment on the color. I am a sucker for everything green, and I will admit that it is part of what sold me. It looks even better than the picture.

The light attached easily to my bike and feels like it is not going to fall off. It doesn't give off enough light to light the way in the dark, but I gives off plenty of light to stay safe in low light. They have given me that little extra piece of mind while on my evening rig. I recommend picking them up.

I'll admittedly say that it took me quit a few tries to get these things turned on after I pulled them from the packaging. There is a shield that needs to be removed from the battery chamber and then the batteries need to be placed back in the proper direction.

What really had me scratching my head was how you turn them on. You have to press and hold the light down until it turns on. I was thinking one click would do the trick, but you need to hold it. Once the light is on, one click will cycle through the light blink settings. While this was hard to figure out at first, it is really slick having these minimal controls to toggle through settings.

The moral is you should read the instructions...

I am always the envy of the campsite when I bring this along. It makes sitting around the fire that much more awesome.

My brother packs his on backpacking trips and uses it as a sleeping pad. I don't know if I would ever do it, but maybe you could give it a try.

I highly recommend these boots. They are comfortable and warm. I wear size ten and I got the UK 9.5. They fit like a glove.

I have a pair of SNS skate skis and SNS classic skis. I love that I can use these with both. Of course they feel better on the skates, but when I want to go with folks that just do classic I don't have to get a whole new rig.
