I bought these as a daily wear shoe for my boyfriend, and he has definitely worn them every day. They are completely waterproof and extremely warm. The ice pick technology in the sole is extremely effective and provides a ton of traction. He wears a 12.5 in US men's normally, but has slightly wide feet. We bought the 13 and he says they fit better than a glove. He has remarked several times that not only do they look great, but they feel great too!

I know several people who have these, wearing them in several different conditions, and everyone simply loves them.

I cannot say enough about this bottle. I have tried many thermoses out there, and this is by far the best. I have one, and then I have since bought it for 2 other people. Once you pour your steaming hot coffee into this sucker, be prepared to drink steaming hot coffee for hours to come! Even if you leave the hot beverage cap open on your desk, walk into a staff meeting, and come out 2 hours later, your coffee will be hot and waiting for you.

Pros: Easy to use; easy to clean; the duo caps are awesome and super easy to change between
Cons: Does not fit in a standard car cup holder. That's it. That's the only con I've got.

Love this bottle! Everyone needs one.

After some wear and some washing....I am pretty disappointed with the Spice Orange design on the shirt. I wash everything in cold water and dry on very low heat. After 3 washes, the design has virtually disappeared from the front of my Spice Orange shirt. The design on my boyfriend's grey still looks great. Might just trash the orange and re-order in the grey.

Bottom line of this update? I'm sticking with the grey.

After using this thermos for almost 2 months, my friend has said it's not great. She has a 20 minutes commute to work in the morning, and says by the time she gets to work, her once piping hot coffee is now only very warm, and after 30 minutes it is only luke warm. As far as construction, she says it has a tendency to leak. Perhaps this thermos is better suited for keeping cold liquids cold.
We are getting a different thermos for her to try instead. Not returning it, but not stoked with it either.

I bought this for my sister, and she loves it! She said the fit is phenomenal and flattering, and very true to size. She has worn it constantly since Christmas, and raves about it. The Merino Wool is insanely soft, and feels so good against the skin. She likes it so much, I might just buy one for myself!

These socks are amazing. I bought the Black/Excalibur for myself in a Small/Medium. I wear a women's size 7. I bought the Red/Black for my boyfriend in an XL. He wears a men's size 13. I wish the S/M were a teeny bit smaller, but other than that, we're both in love with these socks! I am 5'2" and the socks fit me right up to the knee. The cushion on the foot is amazing, and I feel like I'm walking on pillows. They fit my boyfriend up to just below his knee and he is 6'1". He raves about the positioning of the padding and that they never fall down at all, even while skiing extra hard. I would recommend these socks to anyone and everyone!!! I wear mine constantly. He said they are his only ski socks from now on.

Bought these for my boyfriend for Christmas. He was complaining that his thick wool Costco socks just weren't cutting it for his ski days. He loves these socks! He says that the padding is right where it should be, and he loves how high they come up. He's 6'1" and they come up to just above mid-calf. He said they don't fall down at all, and wick sweat but don't leave him feeling cold. Great sock!

I bought the Merlot/Black, and I love them. They are extremely comfortable, with a soft sole. They do not have any cushion in the sole, nor do they have a hard sole. They are not meant to be worn outside, and are primarily house slippers. I did run out to the mail box in them, but I wouldn't recommend doing that more than once or twice. My feet are very narrow, and get VERY cold, very easily. I have found myself taking these off several times, especially when worn with socks. I wear a 7 exactly, and the mediums fit me toe to heel. If I wore a 7.5, I would recommend sizing up to a Large. I love these, and have considered getting a second pair. One to leave at home, and one to carry everywhere with me!

I ordered the wrong size, but spent some intimate time with this liner, just so I could write this review. The knitting on the liner is awesome. It's soft and very flexible, and feels nice against the ears. What is not shown in the photo is the cap that goes over the head. The beanie that covers the upper portion of the head is VERY thin material, and is white. For me, my head would be cold. I'd still have to wear some sort of bandana or balaclava underneath for warmth.

All in all, it's a good winter replacement liner, for those whose helmets have little to no venting, or those whose heads run a little on the warm side.

I don't know what I can say about these that I haven't said in my other Chaco reviews. I. Love. These. Shoes! Chaco has done it again and made a shoe that I can't wait to put on and don't want to take off. The construction of the sole provides excellent arch support without making you feel like you're being propped up. The single strap adjustment on the cross strap makes it very easy to customize the fit to your foot. The V strap is not adjustable, and fits a little bit loose. If you tighten the cross strap, you are guaranteed to keep your Hipthong on with no problem. If you have bunyons or other bone spurs or anything like that, you will really like the adjust-ability of these.

I have used several seasons' of Chops, and I'm pretty darn pleased with these. The ear piece is more squared this season which works far better with sunnies and eyeglasses than last season's. The sound is still good, without compromising your peripheral hearing (which is important when biking in traffic). They sit nicely over the top of the ear, and the buds fit very comfortably in the ear. I have small ears, and in the ear buds just don't work for me. I highly recommend these. I may get a second pair as back up.
