the greater salt lake area, and anywhere else.
My friend has very chilly feet. Since she received these, she has not taken them off. She said they are extremely warm, and well padded and comfortable. Highly recommended!
Spacecraft has done it once again and come up with an adorable offering for the little groms in our lives. This beanie is SUPER soft and comfortable. It is adorable, and fits perfectly on a young girl. The acrylic yarn is extremely durable. Spacecraft makes this in a women's version, and I am very seriously contemplating getting it for myself. Awesome buy for the little girly groms in your life! (and even the manly groms too!)
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.
What our copy-writers are getting at there is that these are generally a casual sneaker, but The North Face cut no corners in the design and manufacturing of these shoes. They are not meant for winter hiking, but they have ice pic technology in the sole, so they perform just as well as some of their hiking boots and winter boots. They are also waterproof, which is not a feature you generally find in casual sneakers. These shoes are pretty much amazing. I have a bike messenger friend who rides all winter through slush and snow wearing these in the Viszla Brown, and he says his feet are always warm and dry. My boyfriend wears them as his every day shoe (in the Black) and has commented that his feet have not been cold at all this winter.
Yes, these will work for someone with a broad foot. They are easily adjustable by loosening or tightening the laces. My boyfriend has wide feet, and he says his are incredibly comfortable.
Bought this for my nephew, and he was pretty thrilled. It is super soft, and has plenty of room to grow. I tried this on myself and it fit quite well. Though it's not specifically a kid's beanie, it fit him great.
I got this for my little grom nephew, and he loved it. I tried it on myself, and though my adult female head was a little too large, this beanie definitely provides room to grow. He pulled it down over his face until the teeth were where they should be and he laughed and laughed. This will be a bit hit for any little grom in your life!
Got this for my brother in law as a Christmas gift. He was so psyched about it he put it on over both the base layers he was already wearing! This is an awesome top with very soft material. It wicks well, and is true to US sizing.
Bought this for my sister for Christmas. It's great! The cut is very feminine, and it is true to US sizing. The material is extremely soft, and wicks very well. I'm waiting for the next round to come out so I can order one for myself!
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.
I bought this in both a medium and a large, and returned the large. It runs a little bit baggy through the belly area, but a little bit tight on the hips. The tafetta lining is complete, from hood to sleeve cuffs. The hand gaiters are slightly annoying, as they are just a strip of orange elastic to put your thumb through, but they are very stretchy and comfortable. I wear this on mild days when walking the dogs. It's not wind resistant at all, which would be really nice.
I wear anywhere between a medium to an extra large normally. The medium fits great in this jacket. I am a 36"/33"/38" woman, 5'2" tall. If you normally wear large, go with medium on this one and I think you'll be satisfied. There isn't much room to layer though.
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 simply cannot say enough about this watch. It is stunning in the Cristal color. My boyfriend got it for me to be a dress up watch, and it is just that. The cristals circle the entire band. This watch is heavy! It easily weighs a few ounces more than the Nixon Small Player (which I also have and love). But it's not overly heavy...just feels good and solid on the wrist. I removed two links, and it fits perfectly, with no sliding and very little movement up and down the arm.
If you're looking for a stunning watch to dress up your sweater and jeans, this is it. If you're looking for a watch to wear with your little black dress to the opera, this watch is it! It is love!
Bought this for my best friend, who shreds almost better than the boys. It's an awesome set, and she loves it. It's easy to use, with the 3 temperature waxes. The scraper is good and sturdy, and feels like it could take many seasons of abuse. Highly recommended!
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!
Yes, it will fit in the Berkeley, however, the velcro will not line up exactly. The snaps will line up though. Just be sure to get the correct size!
