I bought these leggings to help me get through my last trimester of pregnancy (ordered up one size to a medium). They are nice with a good fit and flat seams with a high comfortable waist. I can't say I am in the yoga studio or anything beyond walking in them so for performance I can't comment too much. I would come back and order my normal size after pregnancy to try them in the studio.

I got an earlier version of this item which was useful to add to my lanyard to hold gink, and I have a larger one for floatant as well. However, I had items drop out of the earlier version as it didn't have a bottom, just a single flexible strap across. This looks to be a better design to keep your items secure.

NRS straps are good stuff. I use this to tie down the bow of my jon boat on the trailer. I haven't seen the durability issues some others have mentioned, but I don't have several seasons of use on mine like they do.

I originally ordered 2 sizes in these birks after reading reviews on other sites to size up. I found that my normal birkenstock size fit perfect. I really like this sandal, it looks great with shorts, jeans and certain summer dresses and I have received tons of compliments. I like that it has a thinner strap than the traditional birks and feels a bit more feminine in certain outfits. I ordered the pink and like the color so much more in person, it is more pale, light pink-white.

I previously had the Ray Ban Erika's in the non-polarized version and loved them because of the light weight and good fitting frames. After wearing those out I was eager to get the polarized version since the visual quality is so much better. I am so glad I did. Still the same lightweight, comfortable frame that I can hike, run, fish and casually hang out in but with the vivid color that polarized lenses provide.

I really like these panties. They are great for hiking, skiing or whatever activity. Breath well, fit like a glove. My only complaint is that I wish they were more seamless, definitely have panty lines.

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

I got this for my sister as a college graduation present as she looked for a new job. Her feedback a month later was that it "would be great for work, or just staying unemployed." Given that she is living in Bellingham with the opportunity to fish, kayak, paddleboard, mountain bike or hike daily without paying rent, I think the latter is more likely. Ahh millennials.

She also said she liked all the pockets and the space it offered, but wished there was a water bottle holder.

Girdle bugs are great. I fish them 2 ways. Primarily I use them as the top fly anytime I am double nymphing high or off color water, especially on larger rivers. This is heavy enough to get the flies down and ugly enough to attract attention. The other way I use these are under a terrestrial dry such as a large foam hopper.

How is the downhill when using this? Are you able to slow down or does the Burley run you over? I'm thinking of using this on groomed roads with a gradual downhill, but enough of a consistent downhill to pick up some speed. Utah people- I am referencing Millcreek

I'm not against san juan worms, but I found this to be too loud for the streams and rivers I typically fish, unless the water is high or dirty, in which case this is is perfect. But, if the water is clear a normal san juan worm seems to do better than this.

Solid rod for pike, musky in the 10wt size, I assume it would work well for bass in smaller sizes. It handles large streamers with ease. The other review is correct, this is a bit heavier rod but then again I haven't casted many big rods so I don't have a good comparison point.

These are comfortable, durable chairs. I have used 2 of them for dozens of car camping trips across several years. I prefer them to the cheap Walmart camp chairs everyone has as these don't let you have bad posture or slouch like the default position in the cheap camp chairs.

These are low to the ground, so if you are not very flexible or agile you may have trouble getting in and out of them. My pregnant wife is having that issue right now.

Additionally while these are fairly packable, I don't like carrying them as the seat and back portion of the chair sometimes fall apart during transport.

Fit: Runs large

I purchased this for my father in law. He typically wears a large, including in fishing shirts from Ex Oficio and others. He found this shirt to be a bit big, and will be returning it for a medium. I don't know if Columbia in general runs large or if it is just this shirt, but it was big in the waist, the shoulder, and the arms
