Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large

Just picked this up a couple weeks ago and its been my go to jacket every day since. Great piece with 60 grams of primaloft insulation makes it warm, light and compressible into its own internal pocket for easy storage.

Good for layering, but looks good on its own as well with the roomier/longer cut, not too technical. It does run a bit large, I'm normally a large and a medium in this fits great. 5'10" 160 lbs, 40 inch chest, broad shoulders.

Great bike shoe
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

Though they look like a regular skate shoe, these really are a great bike shoe, my go to when I hop on the fixie.

They fit true to size, normally wear a 9.5 and these are no different. They were a bit stiff around the opening when i first got them causing a little discomfort but after a few short rides they broke in great and are now very comfortable.

They have a noticeably stiffer sole to better transfer power and keep your feet from wearing out as quickly when pedaling. The sole also has a great pattern with deep waffle type indents that grab the pedal great when trying to flip it over to get into your cages and keep it secure once you are on it.

Great low profile style fits in cages great. Reinforced toe cap (easier to see on the white color in the photos) adds durability, laces also have metal end coverings which is a nice touch. The logo strip that runs across the top of the tongue is attached only at the ends which is really nice to be able to tuck any extra length in there to keep it safe.

I got the black ones, and the blue dots are not at noticeable in person as they are in the photos. They are also sewn into the fabric/slightly raised from the shoe, not just printed on, so they wont rub off leaving you with half a shoe of dots or anything.

Great shoe! Grab a pair while you still can.

These are great bladders and have always worked well for me, the quick connect is a great addition in the last couple years of this. Make sure you grab the cleaning kit to go with it, its item # CAM0420, the crucial part is the skinny cleaner to run through the tube and its nice to be able to hang it from the quick link for easy drying.

I have tried a bunch and my favorites are blueberry crisp and black cherry almond so far. Toss a few in the pack, jacket pockets, and the glove box and im set for a few months of easy snacking and a nice surprise when i find one I forgot about.

Stuff works great to clean all your wool garments and leave them like new, makes them soft again and gets rid of any smells you may have accumulated in your adventures.

Follow the care instructions on tag the of what you are washing , typically you will want to hang dry following a wash.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size

Got a pair of these for my girlfriend to match mine that she liked. She loves hers and wears them everywhere, river trips, camping, hiking etc. She loves that the puple color has purple soles.

Only comes in whole sizes, if you are a half go down. So shes a 6.5 and wears a 6. These offer alot of arch support and will shorten your foot a little bit.

This is the classic reef sandal in my mind, I have been buying these for about 7 years and never think twice about what to replace when I finally wear them out which typically takes about 2+ years of near continuous use, awesome for a pair of ~ $25 sandals.

Not only do they last forever but they are the most comfortable sandals out there in my opinion. They have super soft footbeds and will conform to your feet very quickly. The sole is substatial enough that you dont have to worry about your feet getting stuck with anything. They don't get all sweaty and gross either, and will dry quick if you jump in the pool with them on.

Great bike cleaner thats a no brainer to use since its safe for pretty much everything. Follow the instructions in the description for a crazy clean bike. I couldn't believe how good it looked after I was done with this cleaner, and it took all of about 15 minutes which is great!

Love this tape, i was a little doubtful it was going to provide enough cushion upon unwrapping it the first time but after getting it on the bars its the perfect amount. Gives you good grip with sweaty hands on those warm summer days. Comes in tons of great vibrant color options to match up with any color scheme. Nice durable tape as well, I havent had any issues with it shifting, and it has saved my bars a few times without tearing.

Love this stuff for all things drivetrain cleaning. Pop my chain off the bike, drop it in a rinsed out soda bottle, pour in a little of this stuff and shake it about, a quick brushing and rinse when it comes out and its like a brand new chain, i didn't know it could get that clean. I use a little on my chainring and cog, brush and rinse, good to go, now your bike smells like oranges and runs great after you apply your preferred lube to your shiny new drivetrain.

Nice little chain tool to toss in the pack, but plenty to do the job at home as well. I bought it to use at to break a couple chains to clean them, haven't had to use in on a ride yet thankfully. I Dont even notice it in my pack. Solidly built, straightforward and easy to use, and even includes an extra breaker pin should you ever need it.

Love these tires, ride them front and back on my fixed gear, skids well but does not disintegrate in a month, fairly cheap to replace when you wear one out. Max PSI of 140, I run them at about 120 in the back and slightly lower up front. A little rough on the crappier roads but rolls well everywhere else. Limited experience in the rain but they seem to do ok when its wet out.

These are going to be a much more durable binding than the Jester, they have a shorter mounting platform that allow for a more natural flex of the ski, and higher elasticity to help keep the ski from pre releasing. You wont regret going with these over the Jester.

These things are sweet! Bomber fabric and really great construction has me thinking I wont be needing another pair of pants for quite some time.
Really good looking and stylish, I get lots of compliments on the denim color with the awesome pink upper. Im 5'10 165lbs. normally wear a 32 waist pant. Went with the large and its a baggy but not ridiculous, the medium was a little too fitted for my liking but not tight. I wear a large in the Powfunk jacket from trew as well, same fit.

POCKETS EVERYWHERE you definitely will have plenty of room to stash a few cold oat sodas in these pants and still have room for all your other essentials and then some. great full length side zips dump heat real quick if you start to get sweaty.

Bibs are my personal favorite for any type of day, once I switched to bibs about 5 years ago I could never go back to regular ski pants. And these are by far the best ones I have owned, stop waiting and get a pair before they are gone!

Like these alot, especially good value in this 2 pack. They are thinner than last years stoic socks but I dont notice that they are alot colder and they give me some more room in my boots. The addition of the polypro this year is great to help them stretch at little better and help retain shape, the old ones could get a bit stretched out.

Cant beat these guys especially for the price when compared to other brands out there. Soft merino wool is great at managing temperature in all conditions. I wear these every day no matter the conditions under my shell bibs and am always happy. 3/4 length is the best for keeping them out of your boots and they dont ride up over your knees. Im a 33 waist and the medium is a great fit. Also pretty nice that you can wear them for a few days (or more) and not have them smell like gross baselayers. Wash with merino wash and hang dry.

If you are on the fence about this or any of Trews other gear, dont be, pull the trigger now and dont look back.

Super well built jacket, VERY tough material, and great style and performance to boot what more could you ask for.

Had this out in all sorts of conditions from bluebird pow days to freezing rain and stayed dry and happy the whole time. Tons of well placed pockets, media routing, all pow skirt, all the bells and whistles. And the hood fits over my Large Smith Vantage helmet.

For sizing reference I am 5'10" 160 lbs and went with the large, probably could have gone down to a medium as I have plenty of room but I wanted a more relaxed fit.

Great snack to keep stashed throughout your world for a quick pick me up. I bought a whole bunch of flavors, my favorite being the blueberry crisp, and put a bunch in convenient places, car, all of my million backpacks, ski jacket pockets, etc. So when im running late and dont have time to eat I can at least get a little something in.
