I gave this as a gift.

"This Carabiner has been nothing but amazing. It's not much of a surprise with it being black diamond. The screw gate is super smooth and stays tight. The color is quite a bit darker than in the picture. Still an awesome color though. i would definitely recommend this carabiner. "

Hydro Flasks are freakin' awesome. They keep my water cold all day, and hot chocolate is still warm after a day of powdery turns. We keep finding more and more uses for these and have amassed a small mountain of them in all different shapes and sizes. This 24 oz one is the biggest one that fits in standard cup holders, so it's the one I take with me on road trips short and long.

"I have this in both colors. It is my absolute favorite sweatshirt to wear. I wear it climbing, when I am lounging in the house, out with friends, etc. It is high quality, thick fabric. It is lined with fleece and super soft. If I could, I would wear this everyday.
From what I have seen, Basin and Range is nothing but high quality. I would recommend buying it."

"These are the most wonderful leggings I have ever worn. I was initially worried they might be semi seethrough, but they are solid and can't see through them at all.
I wear them rock climbing and they work perfectly. I will definitely own them in every color one day.
I am 5'5 and roughly 105, I ordered an XS and they fit great. I ordered them in the Northern Lights print, it is just as pretty in person!"

"When i am looking for a stylish, but casual and cute jacket, i always think of my Patagonia Prairie Jacket! The green is absolutely wonderful. Exactly as it looks in the picture. It has a super awesome cinch in the waist that helps it have a more custom fit.
The sleeves don't have much insulation, but the body has a nice fleece on the inside.
I love everything about this jacket."

"There are so many great things to say about Hydro Flask, but we could be here all night if we named all the reasons. Who doesnt need a Hydro Flask in every room of the house?! If you don't have one, buy one now. You wont regret it. I take mine everywhere with me. It does exactly what is says its supposed to do. It keep cold, cold and hot, hot. Not much to complain about here."

I will never go back to those big name sports drinks! No sticky bottle, no overpowering flavor, and just the right amount of sweet. Have you ever accidentally left one of the other sport drinks in your bottle for a week? Your bottle is ruined! I have done that several times with Skratch and after a quick rinse, bottle is as good as new.

If you're looking for a light cage with a tight grip that won't break the bank, look no further! I previously had a lightweight metal cage and my bottles were always rattling out on harsher roads. Once you put your bottle in this thing, it's not coming out without a yank. I mainly use the Camelback Podium Chill bottles, but have also stuck a bunch of those cheap bottles you get from events in it with no problem. For anyone wondering, I was able to mount my Lezyne pump holder behind this with no problem.

This is the best pad I've ever used. It is light, it is no hassle to pack back up, and is way warmer than it should be. I often turn it over to the yellow side during warm nights (maybe the effect is all in my head, but thats really what counts, isn't it?). This pad works great in my ENO doublenest hammock, in a tent or even directly on the ground. I have slept on it down to freezing temperatures and never been cold, though I am generally a warm sleeper.

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.
