I bought this on an impulse to try out the twist lock. The idea was to put in on my direct device for sport cleaning. I thought it would be a great one hand solution, but found it difficult to operate that way. That said, it is very secure and does what its supposed to do. The spring is nice and stiff on the closure.

As a fan of Pendleton Flannel I thought I should give their Backcountry Exclusive Blanket a try. After reading Lex's review I was drawn to the heritage, durability, and fabric. This blanket has been my go to for summer. Whether it's out under the stars or over my bed sheet (over full mattress), it's worked great. Can't recommend it enough!

While these are listed as a regular fit, I would still say they are on the slim side. This is great as I am a huge fan of all the RVCA button ups based on the classic That'll Do series. I really liked the fabric of this shirt the most. Its lightweight and has a slight stretch to it. Really nice for summer.

If you currently wear any of RVCA's "slim" fit button ups, you know what to expect here. Great fit. While this doesn't have the collar buttons of the "That'll Do" series, it does have a classic print. Zoom in and check it out. You won't want to miss out, as once these are gone, they're gone.

Volcom has been in the surf game since the 90s and they know what you need. At first grip, you might think this towel feels lightweight and cheap. It is lightweight, but you should instead equate that with quick drying. If you're out on the beach or on the boat and need multiple dries, a thick "lush" towel is going to let you down. This towel will dry quick and pack down smaller. Win win win.

If you need shade, comfort and cool functionality all in one, you should just buy this hat. Others will be jealous. Other others will just be sunburned. But you won't. You'll be comfy and cool. A few of my favorite features include the mesh side panels, rear size adjustment and the velcro for folding up the back flap. I went L/XL and it fit my head great. In helmets I am normally an XL. Check out my picture to see the effectiveness this offers

These breath and fit great. The material is superb. It was odd to me as I have older Saxx that fit me great in the waist (I'm 31-32). I went small on these as well. I felt like I could have gone medium though. They fit smaller than my older ones.

I felt like this shirt could have been made to be more slim and long. I wanted a M in the chest but a L in length. Ended up going L, but it still doesn't feel just right. The color I have is the Heather Graphite/Midnight Navy. The Navy part is more between a navy and a royal blue though. Not suite as dark as the pictures.

I've been addicted to Frogs since they were re-released in 2008 These are no different. The Ink series offer some unqique/mellow colors to the range of Frogskins colors now available. I find the fit of the tradition plastic hinge frogs to be slightly tighter and superior to the metal hinge LX models.

I have these in the Port Royale color. The fit is on point. Slim but still great movement. Holden has really stepped their game up in the last year. These pants of tons of small intricate details in addition their functionality. I really like the rip stop nylon fabric too. Feels durable, while still offering great maneuverability. I tried on multiple colors and found the port royale and bone brown (ripstop) felt slightly slimmer than the other fabric option (Toray)

These might be my favorite shorts ever. They do everything. They can be worn around town or to the lake. They function as board shorts, being able to dry quickly, without looking like board shorts.
<br><br>
A few features that I like:
<br><br>
2 Rear pockets (1 zipped, 1 button closure)<BR>
2 Front pockets with mesh insides for quick draining of water<BR>
2 sets of beltloops (1 for belt and 1 for shoe string)<BR>
Slimmer above the knee fit
<br><br>
Size wise, I normally wear 32. 32 fit well in these, but I did need to use a shoe string belt to keep them as tight as I wanted them to be.

I like these for snowboarding more than anything else. If you're looking for a pair of shades that is almost a pair of goggles, these are hard to beat. I especially like them on warm days where you'd otherwise be sweating it out in your goggles. Since these are not fully enclosed fogging issues are kept to a minimum. In addition, their wind coverage is adequate. All in all if you're looking for something retro that still offers unique functionality, you should seriously give these a try.
