I got these because a friend has reefs and loves them. I got a 10 which I typically wear. I was just border line on the back so I returned them. Need at least a 1/2 size larger. It was also a little narrow feeling in the center of the foot with the straps digging into my foot. Maybe I just didn't get the chance to break them in but I'm not going to get another Reef anytime soon

I am wearing this shirt right now. Love it. Super comfy. Love the blue color. No one has recognized the logo yet but I figure its only a matter of time. HOWEVER I had to return the medium for an extra large. I'm 5'8'' with a normal build and wear a womens medium in everything. But the medium looked like a child's shirt on me. If you have a large chest - I suggest sizing up one or two sizes. And the shirt is extra long but I dont mind that.

I loved the cream color and was okay with the brown trim. It had a little bit of a womens cut to it. It is VERY water resistant. I spilled red wine on it the first time I wore it and the wine ran straight off the coat. No stain or mark. WHEW. I wouldn't test that twice though. But in the end I had to return it. I bought it for a fall/spring coat and the 98% wind resistant. Did NOT feel like 98%. Maybe 55%. There is almost no insulation in this coat and with a wind, I was always cold.

I LOVE this jacket. I got size 12 in vivid green. Its like a limey yellow, not green. It stands out in a crowd. I'm 5'8" and these sleeves are perfect length. The mid section goes straight down, not baggy but not fitted. Fine by me. Its surprisingly warm and wind resistant for being so light and stuffable. It holds wrinkles for a little while if you stuff it in a bag. Love it!

I love camping but not the waking up part where everything hurts. But when I used this pad, I felt great when I woke up. It kept me warm even with the snow falling outside. And when I awoke to water in my tent - this pad still kept me warm and dry. It compressed really small. I bought the extra stuff sack made for it but a zip lock would work just as well. I couldn't be happier with this! Note: Make sure you blow it up per instructions before the first night you plan on using it which I forgot to do. But still worked great.

I used this camping and it was the first time upon waking up that my neck or back wasn't complaining. It was firm but not too firm. I got the medium which allows for rolling from side to side and not failing off the pillow. I wouldn't go larger. Smaller might pack better. It only shrinks to about 1/3 its size for transport. Wouldn't use it in a backpack trip but good for when I have a car and the room to pack extra stuff.

So I got tangerine 1L closure platypus. I was a little confused with the other reviews and options listed for the cap of this product. First, I got the 'closure' one. Word of caution. This means a basic screw top like the top of a plastic soda bottle. So I returned it for a 'push/pull'. I was once again confused if I was going to get the push/pull top in the sliver image or the hyper flow cap in the others. To my relief - it was the blue/clear top in the other pics and not the pure white in the sliver pic. I love this product. So helpful and compact when not full.

I got this jacket in green. Its wonderful. I got it to stay a little extra warm indoors and outside in the spring/fall. Its great! I wear it all the time. Even right now. I've been meaning to get a fleece for awhile now and couldn't be happier. I typically wear medium and depending on the fit a large. But I got a medium and the fit is good.
