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

These are quite comfortable and look exactly as they were pictured. They were also surprisingly light weight. Unfortunately, they seem to run rather large. I wear a size 12 in just about everything except for cycling shoes, yet these still felt about a half to a full size larger than a typical fit. All around great quality.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I snagged two of these on SAC and I loved them so much that I came back to Backcountry and paid for another at full price. The material is amazing and I've used them all. Poly/Cotton blends, wool, whatever. I sweat a lot so I'm proud to say that this shirt can handle it. It wicks moisture better and dries faster than my other athletic shirts. I use it for hiking, climbing, gym time, or around town. It looks great too! I love the slim fit. I'm 6', 195 lbs, and wear the Large. This shirt is a winner and worth every penny.

When I was a kid, I remember jumping into a giant pile of foam pieces at the gymnastics or play center. This pillow feels like a giant pile of foam pieces. Kind of weird at first, but definitely comfortable once you are resting on the pillow. I like how it folds into itself. It doesn't take long to get it's shape back when taking it out of the case. Small, lightweight, comfortable, kinda awkward feeling at first. 4 stars.

Super comfortable. Made with real leather. A little bit of stretch. Feels true to size. Not the most grippy shoes I have ever climbed in, but I am willing to sacrifice a bit of grip from time to time for all day comfort. If you are super technical, I'd recommend a second pair of shoes for those days when you want to go all out, but these are great for general climbing.

I own about 6 pairs of Electrics and these are my new favorites.Nice lines, good amount of wrap around on the face, good stability on the face, don't slide off my nose, light weight and pretty durable. I got the white/black frame and it almost feels bead-blasted... as in, not the smooth shiny plastic. As I hinted in the title, they are big shades, but I've seen bigger. I'd call the Large, rather than "XL." Highly recommended... will be looking out for a polarized pair on WM to add to my repertoire.
