So far these headphones have been great. I like the sound and they're lightweight and easy to pack. I'm not walking around with 30 lb. tin cans that cost $300 and cost $20 to make (suckers). This is the 3rd pair that I've bought not because they break but because my cats have a chewing problem. I keep buying them which means they must be good

I picked these up for my girlfriend because she loves this company and they're style. She has had several pairs before this. My girlfriend has been having lots of foot pain due to plantar fasciitis from running. She's been seeing a PT and was talking to her about insoles and shoe brands, etc. Without knowing she was a fan, the PT recommended Dansko shoes, especially the Pro version, because they are built for long days on your feet. Just another reason to like the brand.

I've been wearing one of these hats for several years now. I'm a window washer that works in the sun 3/4 of the year, All day everyday. It really protects with its 50+ Rating and huge brim. Not only does it protect my bald head but my nose and neck too. Wearing this has been much nicer than having sunscreen in my eyes all day. It breathes really well and doesn't overheat me. My only drawback is that it stains from sweat over time. But with the amount of wear it gets I think that's inevitable. I think this is my third one in 9 years.

It runs true to size but I buy them large so they sit lower on my head

I've been using these bars for over 3 years now and I really give them a beating. I'm a window washer who hauls ladders on them 3/4 of the year. So I'm constantly throwing ladders on and pulling them off (and I'm talking 20-30 ft ladders). They've stood up to everything I've thrown at them. The only thing I had to replace was the rubber strip on top and with as much use as they get it's completely reasonable. Oh yeah, and I use them for my board rack in the winter but that's very little wear and tear. Highly recommended!

I've used my locks for over 3 years now and they've held up great. My rack is on year round so they've stood up to the elements really well. I've only had trouble turning them when I've misplaced the plate. Thule will also send you replacement keys if you lose any (at a price of course). Really that's my only problem, I wish they were a bit more affordable. But if they last the life of the rack I guess they were worth it. We'll see.

I now have several of these because I like them so much. the material is super soft and I haven't had any washing problems (shrinkage or fading). I really like the stitching color detail. They are fitted nicely, not too tight but not boxy and huge. they come in great colors and there is no huge logo on the chest like most brands.

bought this for my girlfriend and so far she really likes it. it has kept her dry and warm on the few days we've been out so far. the jacket has a nice stretch so it fits well with or without layers. the bright green is also great because i can always spot her on the mountain when we get separated.

I'm not a doctor so i don't know if these physically do anything or if its just mental. that said, it definitely helps me drink water. i use these when i'm working in the heat, and utah can be pretty hot in the summer. i usually drink close to a gallon of water on hot days due to intense physical labor. these help keep me drinking when its hard to choke down more water. i like them because the flavor isn't overpowering. it also doesn't leave that sticky sweet goop in your mouth like gatorade. it dissolves better then some of its counterparts (fizz-a hammer product).

some people don't like the effervescence so be aware of that. grape is the only flavor i've had that i didn't really like.

got this as a chistmas gift for my girlfriend. she usually wears a smartwool XL. this didn't fit her chest and barely came to her waist. she loved the design and the material but it is definitely tight and cropped. i had to return it because she looked like she was wearing a kids shirt.

everything they say is true. this jacket packs down super well. its lightweight and super warm. it will get wet (not waterproof) but it also drys super quickly. all in all it is just awesome!
COMPARISON:
had the patagonia nano puff before this and it was also all of the above. the marmot seems to control temp better. the nano puff always kept me warm but almost too warm sometimes (primaloft vs. down?). i find myself wearing this one and forgetting that i'm wearing it. i also find that the marmot is more of a fitted cut. the patagonia seemed a bit boxier and this seems slimmer.

i have to be honest and say these were purely a fashion choice for me. i don't wear shorts in the summer and this is a good alternative. they are light weight and stretchy. the material and fit is good. i feel like i could be active in them but mostly i just like the fit and cut. i have a M and L pair. i have a 32 waist so the M defintely fits better but the L are ok and cinch well

i'm a window cleaner that works outside in the summer when temps can stay in the 100's. these pants are great! they offer lightweight coverage for in the sun and zip off legs for when i do interior work or work in the shade. i'm constantly climbing over and under things so they get a real work out. i was a little worried with the 32 inseam size as i usually wear a 34. but i would say they run a little long so it works well.

i got these as a christmas present for my mom. then the winter of 2013/14 hit the east coast and she's been living in them since. she says they keep her feet warm and dry. they run a bit large but that works with thick winter socks. she hasn't had any complaints but she's not working in them (i saw some other constant use complaints). they are basically a snow boot for her.

I use this rack with thule bars. It's super easy to attach and detach. they literally came out of the box and were on my roof in a few minutes. i haven't had any problems with it in the snow or cold. the locks work well (something that i recommend getting). it holds four boards no problem. does what it says and does it well!

love the wide mouth (you can add ice cubes) and regular cap. i'm a window cleaner and in the summer it can get really hot here. this is a big bottle (too big for some) but i'm not hiking with it. leaves no taste like a lot of plastic bottles do. never leaks and its been almost a year. the only problem is that it's not insulated in any way. if you want insulation try something else. otherwise a great bottle.

i bought the apple tortoise brown as a present for my girlfriend. she loves them!! she was hesitant to spend the money sunglasses. she's always bought cheap sunglasses. having bought a pair for myself, i knew they were worth the money. as soon as you wear these, you know where the money is going. the optics are amazing with little or no distortion and they're very stylish. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
