Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this for my husband as a father's day gift for a better take to work option of a water bottle. He's fairly obsessed with cold water and this thing is amazing at keep water cold. He's had it in the car on 90 degree days and comments that the water seems colder 8 hours later.

Size Purchased: L

I purchased this in a size large as I prefer my bike jerseys to be loose rather than tight fitting. It's comfortable & roomy but doesn't look sloppy, if you like the tighter fit definitely go smaller. It is VERY short but I'm short waisted so this doesn't bother me and the jersey doesn't ride up. I've worn it in a 12 hour race with 90 degree temps & high humidity and felt like it breathed and wicked very well.

I got these to wear under regular non-compression tights for adventure racing & am really liking them so far. I worried they'd be uncomfortable on the bike but was pleasantly surprised that there was no chafing and they were quite comfortable. I had thought I'd wear these alone for running also but they look a little odd as they are very long, down to my knees so don't quite have the tri-shorts look. But, they were great as far as compression shorts go. I'm 5'7", 130-135 lbs and I got the mediums which fit well.

I got these last winter & while they took a little getting used to due to the minimalist style once my feet/legs got used to them they've become by far my favorite trail running shoe. I have a pretty wide foot & these did not feel too narrow for me. I sized up 1/2 size - I wear a 9 in my usual Salomon running shoe - and got these in a 9.5 which was perfect. I generally wear without socks & love the feel of the trail beneath my feet!

This was my first try at Sportiva's and I was pleasantly surprised. I run trails in the midwest so far from super-technical terrain but they are a great light-weight option as far as trail shoes go. I have high arches and wide feet and while they don't offer a ton of arch support I've done trail runs as long as 3 hours in them with no foot problems other than a little discomfort on the ball of one foot, but that's something I get from almost every shoe I've tried. Overall, for the price, great light-weight option!
