Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: True to size

I would say that these are more of a regular fit than slim. I normally wear Krew K slims and these were no where close to comparable in fit. I really hoped they would be. That said, if you're looking for a slightly tapered fit from straight let, these would be good. If you're looking for a pair of pants that don't leave fabric hanging off you, look elsewhere.

Otherwise, I found the crotch kind of low as well, which I didn't like. I ended up returning them.

I bought this pack for my work bag 3 years ago and it still works/functions great. I love the slim profile. I would say that the laptop sleeve maxes out at 15". I had to put a chunky battery on my computer and it wouldn't bit anymore. That said this bag is simple and straight forward. I store the laptop in the main compartment now. The front hidden pocket stores my accessories.

I also like the hidden detail that pops when the front pocket gets full. Nice touch!

These shorts are my jam. I'm big into wakeboarding, and need a short that dries quickly, moves with me, and I dig the looks. These fit the bill. Their 19" inseam is short enough to satisfy my hipster on one shoulder without being so short I feel overly ironic. The fabric is the best part though. The 4 way stretch doesn't get in your way like many of these new cotton blend hybrid shorts do. It moves with you.

Yet another RVCA slim fit hort sleeve button up in my closet. Nothing else compares in fit and fashion. The Angles Shirt adds a fun element with it's tasty all over print. Sizing wsa on par with RVCA That'll Do shirts.

Fit: Runs large

I was looking for some new shoes to spice up my wardrobe in a professional manner. These caught my eye, especially the cork accent in the heel. Once I had my feet in them I was sold. The foot beds in these are supportive but kind of squishy. I feel like I could wear these for long days without hesitation. In terms of sizing, I ordered my normal 9.5 size. They fit well, although slightly big compared to most shoes. I still don't think I would have wanted the 9 though.

I bought this as a shirt to climb in. I enjoy its sleek look and not too tight fit under my harness. Works great as a base layer on those cold days as well. Fit was what I expected. I purchased a M as I was looking for a tighter fit.

Looking for a new crew neck to rock, this Nike SB piece caught my eye. Putting this crew neck on, I instantly noticed Nike's signature fit. It's slim, but still allows for movement in the right ways. The fabric on this piece has a terry feel on the inside and I would say it between a medium to lightweight density.

For size, I am 5'11", 165. I normally wear L. I tried on the M and L in this and decided that L fit best. I would say this is true to size, or maybe just a hair big.

RVCA makes the best button ups and this is no exception. The material on this flows nice and looks good. Can't wait to rock it more as the temps rise this spring. Fit wise this shirt is on the medium to slim side. I like it like that. If you've had other "that'll do" models, you know what to expect here. Size wise, I fall between a M and L in these, but went L here.

I bought this as a gift for my friend and he as the following to say about it:

I got this sleeping pad along with the Therm-A-Rest Saros 33 Synthetic. Together they work great. The temps plummeted down to the low 30s after a hiking in the low 70s all day and I stayed fairly warm. I was able to move around without slipping off the pad which is great because I toss and turn a lot. The pads self inflation worked fairly well but it took a while to really squeeze all the air out. It maintained its air wonderfully throughout the night. Overall this is a great set up for me.

I bought this bag along with the Therm-A-Rest ProLite plus sleeping pad. Together they work great. The temps plummeted down to the low 30s after a hiking in the low 70s all day. The low fill in the bottom of the bag wasn't an issue but I wouldn't recommend this bag without the sleeping pad attached. I was able to move around without slipping off the pad which is great because I toss and turn a lot. I do wish the bag was a little more compatible however. Overall I am happy with this set up.
