Familiarity: I've used it several times

I buy myself at least one pair of Electrics a year - great brand. The color gradients gives it a little something extra without being too flashy. They did seems to scratch a little more easily than some of my others, but it could be I dropped them more than I realized.

They are comfortable to walk in, though the sizing runs a little small (I wish they came in 1/2 sizes). Not as warm as I had hoped for - their temp rating is -40 F and after a quick walk in 20 F my toes were frozen! Overall they are just OK

Finally a protein shake that isn't fully of nasty dairy, whey whateverness. I prefer the vanilla (not currently in stock) but the chocolate is decent if you blend with a banana and ice.

I bought both the PhD Running Ultra Light Micro and the PhD Cycle Ultra Light Micro Sock and they seems exactly the same to me. Great socks - I was just hoping for a lower cut in the running style, but both are truly a "thin" performance sock. Love SmartWool!

I really liked the keyhole cut, but you don't really see it when it's on. It kind of blends in with your skin - but maybe I just need a tan. ;) It has decent coverage and support. Thick enough fabric that I wouldn't' worry about it going see through.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large

SUUUUUUPER cute! it's hard to find a one piece that is this good looking and still has decent coverage. I ordered a large and found that the torso runs really long, so I will exchange for a medium and cross my fingers that it won't be too small in the back. The fabric is on the thicker side, not shiny and is reversible to a bright tropical print. I would actually wear it both ways.

I've been buying and loving Lululemon for years, but with all the recent issues as of late I thought I would branch out and try Lucy. The fabric is much thinner that the Lulu pants I am used to and feels flimsy and not supportive - not sure how long these will hold up. They are soft and I do like the cut and the heather grey color, but probably wouldn't order again.

Fit: Runs small

I purchased this for someone who is normally a large, but has broad shoulders (maybe a bit of a barrel chest?) and we needed to size up to a XL. He thought he would take the fur trim right off, but after a few days in the freezing cold he is a convert and has been caught nuzzling it. This coat is an investment, but worth it!

PS - the green is not as military green as it looks on line - more of a pine green. I didn't care for it and went with good reliable black.

These are my favorite desert bar. There maybe a few healthy ingredients, but let's be honest it's all about the marshmallows here. I haven't tried it, but I bet these would be amazing wrapped in foil and thrown in the fire for a few minutes (take wrapped off first).

I have a pair of the crops and with the cold weather coming I had to have the full long pair too. I learned my lesson and sized up with this - they are still plenty snug (I'm 5.7", 135 lbs). The weave definitely hugs your muscles and is as flattering as anything skin tight could be.

Love these pants, but they are tight! And by tight, I mean I almost stripped the skin from my hands pulling them on. I'm normally a medium and ordered that size, but after a few struggles and no stretching I gave that pair to a petite friend and ordered the large.

I bought these for my father who is a diehard Marmot fan. I followed the sizing guide and purchased medium. The pants fit, and would be good for warm weather use, but the waist would be a little tight if you wanted to layer them with cold temperature thermals.

Clearly mittens are best for subzero conditions, but if you need the dexterity of your digits, this gloves' warmth and flexibility will give it to you. This is my second pair and I think the finger length runs a little shorter then the previous, so maybe size up. Aesthetically they are a little shiny but probably an unavailable characteristic for a fabric that both shields and breathes. I could have done without the finger branding of "ST" (trust me I'm not going to forget which finger tip has the giant nugget on it and what it's for). Overall this is a great glove.

I bought a set of these for both my parents and they are lighter than I would have thought possible for a trekking pole. The z-pole design allows them to fold up in to a very small and easy to transport size, and so far they've been a great. They do seem a little fragile, and might not be good for difficult scrambles (where much sturdier poles have been broken).

I bought these for my fianc� for a boating trip, did a lot of research and ordered and compared a bunch of glasses before deciding on these. They are expensive, but worth it. They have nice little rubber grippers on the ends and good flex that help keep your investment on your face. I was a little unsure how I would feel about the copper tint, but I love it - bright and happy. And OMG are the polarized lens AMAZING! I am constantly asking to borrow these glasses when we are out on the water, as they put mine to shame.

It's kind of weird to love this sort of thing, but I do. And I don't just use it for camping. Any time I travel this goes in my quart size baggie - and it has never exploded or leaked. It's nice to know you can wash something out quick in the sink, or use for shampoo if you run out.
