I was excited for this hoody - I really was. But the material is thin, the sizing runs small (I usually wear a M but with Rip Curl I should have gone with a L), and the coloring is not what I expected. It is BRIGHT orange and green, not yellow and green. The green looks the same in person as it does on the site. I don't think it's worth $70.

First of all, this is the softest shirt I own now. I'd say it's a midweight shirt, in warmer weather it's too hot to wear but chilly mornings/evenings and colder temps it is ideal. No clamminess, wicks away sweat, keeps me from feeling chilled. I've worn it alone in cooler temps for runs and it was all I needed. And the logo embroidery is an awesome touch. I wear a M and am 5'5 and 140lbs, perfect fit.

I own these in a M and I am 5'5 and 140lbs and they fit great. They are super soft and withstand the tests of yoga, running, and lounging with two thumbs up. They seem to wick away moisture and I haven't noticed any pilling or anything like that. Yes, they are expensive, but for how comfy and durable they are, it was totally worth it. The internal key pocket is at the front of the waistband - it can hold one key and some cash comfortably, anything more and it will just jab against your skin.

I took the BC Cocona Shirt out for a few runs and am totally stoked on its performance. I never got clammy, it wicked away moisture like a champ and dried quickly so I never felt sweaty. Feels soft against my skin, no scratchiness here. I am 5'5 and about 130lbs and a M fits me great--not too tapered, not too loose, fits just right. No funky next day smell, either.

I have worn this jacket in Vancouver, BC and freezing temps in Utah and it does just as well if not better than my 600 down TNF jacket (which is heavier and bulkier). I got this one to downsize and I am not disappointed. It is so lightweight but so warm. The cut is flattering, I have had several people compliment it and ask where I got it. The sleeve length is great, a little past my wrists. I got a M and I am 5'5 and 130lbs. and it fits just right. It packs really well too, compresses well. Paired with my Ibex base layer I am doubly warm. I highly recommend the Backcountry.com Down Sweater!!

I owned last year's version of this Salomon shoe and I wore it in a size 7, so of course I got size 7 again. Well, I just tried them on and they are easily half a size to one size too big! I thought having worn size 7 before with Salomon I would have been okay, but apparently the sizing has changed a little since the other version. I love these shoes and am so bummed because now I have to wait until my size comes into stock.

I bought the M (26in-36in) since my dog's girth is 31in and it does NOT in any way fit him! It is a good 4in too short around the widest part of his ribcage so I can't fasten it into place. The second fastener near the rear of his body closes just fine. I have the web harness size M and that fits him fine, he is a boxer/ridgeback mix, 70lbs., so the M should have fit him. Ruffwear's site suggests sizing down if in between sizes, but I would size UP. The tag says, 'performance fit' so maybe that explains the difference. The quality of this pack otherwise looks great and I own a lot of Ruffwear products but I have to give a low rating for the misinformation and inconvenience. Here's hoping the L works...

This leash does what it intends to do - it is meant as a training leash, with the collar to be worn high up on the neck of the dog, behind its ears. When the dog needs a correction, you gently tug on the leash/collar combination (like Cesar Millan) and it will briefly close down around high on the dog's neck. So if you want a more substantial leash because your dog pulls you all over the place, then this leash is not for you, because ideally the dog should not be pulling around the handler. I don't give this item 5 stars simply because the carrying case for the poop bags is a little too big for my liking, it feels bulky during the walk. Also, unless you can fit a pre-spooled set of bags so that you can effortlessly pull one bag out after another, then I am not sure how you can do that with this one if you just put them in yourself.

I can wear these Acorn booties without socks and my feet are toasty warm. The lining is so soft and comfortable, the soles are sturdy enough to take out the garbage or get the mail, I would feel fine walking around in them too or going to the store, I just wouldn't want to if it's wet out, I wouldn't want to ruin the suede. When I wear these with socks my feet are even warmer. Big thumbs up!
