I first heard about fits through Justin Lichter, heard they were quality socks that had some unrivaled fit, so I figured I would try a pair out.

It's literally like you aren't wearing socks. The deep heel cup engulfs your heel allowing the rest of the sock to suction to your foot. There are two small seems on either side of the toe box and when on you don't feel the seem at all.

Expensive for a pair of socks but worth a try if you are looking for a pair of high end over the calf socks then you gotta give these a go.

Comfortable, Casual everyday wear
5 5

The Sanuk Standard used to be my go to everyday foot gear. I have like 6 different pairs and would wear them everywhere.

Decided to switch it up a bit and purchased the E-Streets and I haven't worn my Sanuks since.

The soles are very comfortable, the shoe is very lightweight and low profile on your foot. I'm not really a fan of tieing casual shoes so I leave them untied and there is no problem in terms of staying on my foot.

I've worn them everyday for over a week with no socks and they still smell fresh.

No negatives at all. The only nitpicking I could do is to say the rubber sole may not be the most durable sole ever. It's a pretty soft rubber and with my week of wear I've seen some light wear in the heel. Nothing I'd worry about.

Great shoe for someone looking for a lightweight, low profile casual shoe that looks great and smells good without socks.

This is a great portable water bowl. I purchased the Medium and it is more than enough water for my 60ish pound lab/pit mix. Holds water extremely well, lightweight and portable.

If I had to give one critique it would be when you're out with a limited water supply. If you were out with only one or two dogs you'd be using a lot of water to fill up the bowl. If you had to pack up (on a hike or something similar) and move you'd need another way to store that water for reuse later or you would have to dump it out, essentially wasting your limited supply.

I'm not going to dock it a star however. Even with the medium size and a small amount of water, I can get the bowl to maintain it's rigidity long enough for my dog to drink.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I really want to be able to give this hat 5 stars, but I just can't and it's not even because it's a bad hat. In fact I wear this hat every single day in the winter and fall.

I'm not giving this product 5 stars because of the production of this hat. I initially bought the squid ink version of the hat in December 2011 and it has served well me to this day (even though my dog has chewed off all 3 tassles). It fit perfect right from the get go, the fleece was sewn into the hat nicely and the seam in the back was virtually non-existent when wearing the hat.

I thought I would purchase another one in 2012 and I purchased the brown one. When it arrived I put it on and was extremely disappointed. It fit much tighter than the first hat I purchased. I noticed the front of the hat would roll up exposing the black fleece underneath when wearing the hat. Also the fleece was sewn into the hat in a "bunched up" manner. I also noticed a small hole on the top of the hat.

I sent an email to Arc'teryx letting them know about my issues with my new purchase and offered to include pictures for verification, but to my disappointment I never heard back.

All-in-all this is a fantastic hat if you get a quality produced verion. If you don?t then I'm sorry. It will be uncomfortable and won't look as cool as you would have liked.

Maybe the one I received was just that happened to slip by quality control analyst.

These are great casual, everyday pants. I have a few pairs and pretty much rotate them throughout the week. I've even worn them climbing and though they are not specifically designed for that purpose, they are stretchy enough to still be comfortable.

They are slimmer fitting pants but it does not look like someone painted them on your legs (as long as you size appropriately to your body type).

My only concern is when I take them off. Obviously I carry my wallet in my back pocket and occasionally my phone. I noticed when I take these pants off my phone and wallet will slide out occasionally. Now this isn't a big deal if you take your wallet and phone out prior to taking off your pants, but sometimes I forget.

I personally find the color choices to be great. They are normal colors that match what you see on the web.

As long as they make these pants I will continue to wear them.

Great pant for snowboarding as well...
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Don't let the current 3 star rating fool you...

I picked these pants up near the end of this season. I preferred the Morrell color so I went with the insulated version (my only available option). The web color you see here is close to the color of pants in reality.

I'm 5'9 in the 170's, athletic build and the medium pants fit well. The waist isn't super baggy but not restricting either. I'm shorter and opted for the regular length (32 inseam). The additional length was never a problem wearing my snowboard boots. With these pants you won't look like you're attending a rave and you won't look like someone painted them on your legs. Overall a great look and fit IMO (picture included).

These are pretty warm pants. I went to Snowshoe, WV on March 5, 2013 and never felt chilly at all. Granted it was late in the season and spring was approaching. It was around 31 degrees farenheit and I did not open up the thigh vents that rest on the outside of each thigh. If I would have done so I assume they would have ventilated well.

6.5 hours of snowboarding and the only wetness I experienced was from not having a powder skirt in my jacket, which didn't keep snow out in the times where I did wipe out. (Arc'teryx Gamma MX Hoody).
