Not made for rain...
4 5

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 110 lbs
Size Purchased: XSmall

Have information to share:

"It was very last minute, i needed a jacket for the Goldilocks bike ride i was doing, and the weather changed to rainy and cold.

I didnt want to spend a whole lot on a jacket that i would wear only when it rained, so i decided to give this jacket a try.
I underestimated how much it would rain that day. Like it says in the description, it "is ideal for drizzle or windy conditions, it does not feature fully taped, waterproof seams — if you need to keep a deluge at bay, take a look at Castelli's rain jackets." In the first 10 miles, it was more of a drizzle and a little bit windy and it worked perfectly! I had no complaints, in fact i was so happy that i went with this jacket rather than splurging on something waterproof. As the ride went on, it kept getting worse and worse. Eventually, the rain came seeping in and got all my clothes wet underneath. I probably weighed an extra 20 lbs due to all the water that had gotten through. This is not a bad product at all, it is just made for different conditions.
If i would have known it was going to rain like that, i would have done more research and spent a little bit more to get something warmer.

This jacket is pretty true to size. I usually wear an XS and went with the XS due to the size chart.

The only complaint I really have about this jacket is it didnt stay down in the back. It kept riding up the entire ride."

Great pants
4 5

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 110 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

Bought these for my wife, have feedback to share:

"I got these pants very last minute due to the Goldilocks bike ride that was supposed to be cold and rain the whole time. I didnt think it would actually rain the WHOLE time, but it did.

First of all, these did okay in the rain for the first 10 miles, i was warm and loving every minute of it. As time went on, it started seeping in and it wasnt keeping me warm anymore, rather acting as an air conditioner with the wind. It was a mistake on my part for thinking a simple pair of bike pants were going to keep me dry. It didn't say anything about being water resistant, but i took my chances and i should have gone with something else.

The sizing runs extremely small. I know that biking clothing are supposed to be tight, but these were a little too tight. After reading the reviews, everyone was saying size up a size. I usually wear an XS in all of my clothes, so i went with a small. I tried them on, but could barely get my size 5 narrow foot through the foot hole. I then returned them and got a medium. They fit so much better!

I do love these though. they fit amazing and will be great for fall/spring rides when its a bit cold! I would definitely buy them again!

I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars due to the sizing running extremely small.

"When i first saw this skirt, i was in love! I loved everything about it. It is the perfect length, you can dress it up or down, not too hot, etc. I have worn this skirt to church, to the park, casual events. Tying it up gives you the perfect casual look and down is a bit more formal.
The only thing that really bothered me was the length of the liner. Because it is a shorter liner, it rides up with the skirt and makes it almost completely useless. But it doesn't stop me from wearing it and loving it!"

"I have been looking everywhere for the perfect durable purse and i found exactly what i was looking for! The size for me is perfect, its not too small but its not big either. I can fit everything i need in it. Plenty of pockets/pouches, a zipper pocket, clip for keys, etc. so nothing gets lost. Well worth the money!"

I'm a big fan of Lezyne products, and this cage is cool because you can mount your Lezyne Road Drive pump directly to it. It's pretty darn light for a metal cage, but because of this, it is rather flexy. If you want to grab your bottle with zero effort, this is good. If you ride on rough terrain and want your bottle to stay put, it is not. I used it for a couple seasons but, ultimately, I ended up switching to an Arundel after losing a few bottles to the rough road.

"I absolutely love my chacos! They go on every trip with me. I cant imagine not having them. So amazing for every trip to go on. I took them with me to Costa Rica in 2012 and they got some use on the zip lines! I also take them with me to Havasupai every year that i go. I wouldn't have any other shoes there while hiking through rivers and jumping off cliffs all weekend. Its a little bit hard to adjust the double strap, but after you get them adjusted the first time, they are no problem after that. Very comfortable for walking, hiking, playing in the water, etc. I wear a size 5 in regular shoes and i got a size 5 in Chacos. They fit absolutely perfect."

This bivvy is great as an emergency heat boost, but not so great for every night use. I bought it based on the reviewer that said they used it every night in the summer, but that did not work for me. This thing does not breathe at all despite the vent at the bottom and the openings between the velcro closures on the side. I got clammy using just the bag in the summer, and downright sweaty when I used it to up my bag rating in the winter in a hammock. Whether it was inside my sleepbag, or my bag was inside it, I was not able to sleep comfortably. I ended up putting it between my bag and hammock and it worked well there.

As an emergency bag, there is no doubt, this thing keeps the heat in! But I would not use it again casually.

This is a perfect addition to ANY pack you want to use your Osprey bladder with! I originally thought three was overkill, but they got used quickly! Threw one on my weeklong backpack that had a hydration pouch, but didn't come with a bladder. Used one on an off-brand pack, and gave another to a friend in need! The magnet is strong and great for keeping your hose from flopping around or getting in the muck when you set it down.

"Best gloves i have ever used! Very warm. Absolutely love the wrist leash on it. I did ski program and took kids up to brighton to ski and was constantly having to take them off to help kids get ready to get up on the mountain. Insulated and very warm. I love them. Cant wait to get back in the snow and use them again!"

I gave this as a gift and have information to share:
"One of my favorite shirts! I bought this to take to Costa Rica because it is a dri release fabric. I havent gone yet, but went on a bike ride with it just today and it kept me cool the whole time. Definitely lives up to what it says. I usually wear a size xs in other shirts so got a small in this one. Fits just how i thought it would. A little bit baggy but that is expected with a t-shirt. Absolutely love it!"

These things are great! Simple to pair up with your devices and easy to use. The hardest part, literally, is figuring out which of the three provided sizes of earpieces and wings fit your ears. I have used these on Ragnar and half marathons and had zero issues. No problems with sweat, and no falling out. They are definitely a runners best friend.

This is my second pair of ThirtyTwo's and I love them! They seem to fit true to size, like my other pair. I generally wear a size 12 in hiking boots and dress shoes and wear a 12 here too. This feels more like a performance fit boot vs an all day comfort boot like my last pair. This is not to say they aren't comfortable, because they definitely are, and my feet stay perfectly warm.

The Boa system is great and lets me jump right in for a quick pow sesh. I'm also able to tighten these on the go, which is nice. Having two section of the Boa is great because I like my calf tight and my foot loose.

I used to hear about people's Boas breaking all the time, but I've really beat these up this year and haven't had an issue. They even come with a spare wire in case something happens.

I would recommend this boot to anyone who is looking for a great boot with the Boa system.

I took these down for a week in Havasupai, and I'm sure glad I did! In and out of water all day, having sandals is a must and these are solid! They really hold on to your foot, feel secure like a shoe, and grip as well as any hiking boots on land, and even better in the water. I got them a few weeks early and started wearing them around for day-to-day business. This is a must because it takes a minute to get used to them and also to get the straps dialed in to where you want/need them. After wearing these only a few times a week for 3 weeks before my trip, I was a little worried about how my feet would fare, but I put 13 miles on them in a couple days with no more wear on my feet than I would expect after that distance. These are definitely my new best friend.

One thing you'll probably wanna do after every few hiking trips is pull all the straps through the slots under water to get the dirt out. If you leave the dirt and sand in there, it will start wearing and fraying your straps!

This is a great hammock! Very durable. I got the double nest on recommendation of friends and its great to wrap up in. It's also great to have a second person in to relax, but unless you REALLY like cuddling, you probably wouldn't want to sleep two in it. I generally like harder straight surfaces to sleep on (think carpeted floor,) but I had no problem sleeping in this hammock. If you sleep a little diagonally in the hammock, it allows you to straighten out a bit. The one and only complain't I have with this hammock is the steel carabiners. Not only are they HEAVY, the don't have the cleanest edges and they catch on everything, which is a real pain when you are trying to attach or detach this from webbing or rope that is pulled tight. I would recommend buying lighter, nicer carabiners to replace them.

Even tho these are Ray-Bans, I was a little worried that the folding hinges would make these cheap and fragile, but they are actually pretty solid and I have no complaints. These seem to be a little narrower than the standard wayfarer, so if you have a narrow face that doesn't usually hold them on, this may be your ticket. That being said, if you have a wide face, steer clear of the folding version!

Let me start by saying this thing isn't light, but that's what makes it a perfect desk bottle. I never felt completely comfortable having my Nalgene open on my desk next to my computer, but this sits solidly and makes me feel safer. I also love that the outside is removable so you can throw the glass inside in the dishwasher. Since it is glass, I can use it with flavored and mixed drinks without it picking up the flavors (like my Nalgene does.) With the bamboo outer, it looks great too!
