Actually, for those of use with serious foot width, going up helps. My foot size is 10-10.5 4E and I have to wear large. Medium won't fit. BTW - anyone with wide feet will love these socks. They're all I wear!
Buy it. Get the lid.
Things stay hot forever. The lid doesn't leak at all. Mine travels with me all over Japan. It lasts forever and it's not made in China. The best gift I've ever gotten that costs under $100.
Where is it made?
My wife doesn't like sunglasses that look "overly athletic". Makes it hard to buy good glasses with great optics...and she has a small face, making it even harder. These met the need in spades. She loves them, they look good on her, and we field tested them fishing and boating in the Keys. On her, they look very feminine and they're very functional in design!
What's the difference between the 580 and the 400 lens? Not just the 580 is better - how/why is it better?
Now tested in freaky cold conditions on a 3-day trip. Verdict - awesome. These are phenomenal socks. I wrote about them at snowboardinginjapan.com and on snowboardingforum.com. If you're ready for something better than Joe Boxers at 3 for a dollar, these are the ones.
Very nice for snowboarding. Your toes don't get crushed and your calves stay live. I will order more...it sounds crazy but these work! Skiers would love these!
I feel terrible. I actually like them and think they're worth it. Mine are Yellowstone - they look just like the ones on the Backcountry and Mountain Khakis website. They are heavy, triple-stitched, and have a gusseted crotch. To me, the waist runs a hair large...not a problem...just makes bending easier. Lots of really nice touches are in these pants...heel protectors on the back of the legs, good fit, double pockets on one of the front pockets and unique...dare I say the word...colorways. They fit over boots well. I like the color although it's different. I guess if you want to look like everyone else, you should buy Dockers. I wear mine to work unless I'm meeting with conservative clients and wear them everywhere else. My wife saw how much I liked them and bought another pair for me. Nice.
Cambodian sweatshop? Learn the history of the world. Providing a few jobs to those people after all they've endured seems the least we can do...beats China ;-)
I love these. I've been switching all of my socks over to these. I bought my first pair as a joke, then discovered how comfortable they are. The bamboo is a nice touch. The color is excellent for your work khakis. If you have an extra-wide foot and are near the end of the sizing charts, you may want to go up a size. Great socks!!
This is an excellent shirt. Nearly wrinkle-free, it offers an alternative to dress shirts in a semi-casual environment. Wear it with cutoffs or a tie...I'm ordering more.
I was prepared to be impressed. However, there's a problem with these that isn't mentioned in the description - they have a built-in mesh brief. That creates issues. Issue #1 - my boys don't like the feel of mesh...especially tight mesh. Issue #2 - if you wear these on a long trip, they must be washed daily, less one face the peril of crotch rot. Normal pants require only the underwear to be washed...a far easier task. A lot of thought went into these pants - if you're into built in panties, I guess they'd be okay. I'm returning mine.
Okay...a bit expensive but very well-made and roomy. I say that from the perspective of a couple of weeks but I suspect they will hold up. Pagagonia products usually do. Very roomy legs...truly cut like gi pants...good roomy pockets with drainage. Great for comfortable travel and fast drying. A minor issue...the belt doesn't stay tight.
Said it was BPA-free but not. Sucks!
Warm beyond anything I'd expect from a shell and keeps me totally dry. Zippers stiff after a year but you know they won't break! Only problem...the white color won't clean. After a few tree runs and brush-ups, it's become stylishly gray...oh well, matches my hair. Normally one layer underneath is enough...very cold days get two. Great coat. Can't remember the price a year later.
Hopefully, I don't get any real world tests but the probe snaps out to full extension easily and it's very light weight - it seems perfectly suited for a round of find the body. Again, I hope I don't ever find out for sure.
Nice for working out. A little heavier material than I would prefer but I would buy again...at least until Patagonia offers one in Capilene.
Look - the pods failed on this year's design. Good dealers covered the problem and the bindings then rocked. Excellent control without lag and more and easier adjustability than ever. No problems after that. Everyone makes mistakes. The good folks take care of theirs. Flow did. I'm buying new ones this year with a new board.
We're returning them because they run small but will be getting the bigger size. Very convenient sandal for summer. Good toe protection and still cool!
My wife doesn't wear outdoor or tech gear and certainly doesn't share my fascination with them. But she loved these. We went on a 3-day hike through the temples and shrines of Kyoto and she wore them 2 of the 3 days. Great fit!
