Fit: Runs large

Weight: 150 lbs
Size Purchased: M

I purchased this pair of shorts in addition to the Zinnia shorts. I think overall, these are a more functional pair for what they are designed for. Good DH shorts for a day in the bike park. Nice sized side pocket for stuff (snack, keys, pass, tool, probably phone would fit too). The fabric is nice and stretchy and comfortable, there is a mesh liner, so these would be too hot for a long pedally ride (maybe good in the cold!). These run pretty big, I am typically a large and got a medium, almost think I could have pulled off a small. I wear a size 8/29 in pants, typically size large in most bike short brands. The cinchers are nice, but they are very flappy and kinda get in the way. I do like the nice bright color of the pink, but just know they are very pink.

The Sombrio Zinnia shorts are a comfortable pair of bike shorts for longer rides. The fabric is fairly lightweight, but still strong. My complaint is the fit, they run large and stretch out quickly when riding, and the waist has no cinchers. I am typically a size large (8/29 pants) in most bike shorts and took a size medium, I almost think a small could have worked once stretched out... The pockets on the back are pretty nice, there's nothing getting in the way of pedaling. I also wish that Sombrio would sell these with a chamois.

I have the G3 alpinist skins and this worked great for a refresh on the glue. My skins were in great shape, but the glue wasn't sticking anymore. The glue renew was cheaper than buying another pair of skins, so I went for it.

The skins come with simple instructions on how to remove the old and apply the new glue. I used some old newspaper, a clothes iron (on high), and a putty knife to remove the old glue. It took a few goes to get it all off. Only thing I wasn't sure about was removing the "ripstrip", but not having one hasn't really been an issue. Removing the old glue was a pain.

Applying the new glue was pretty darn easy and much faster than taking the old stuff off! Again, used the clothes iron to thoroughly melt the glue onto the skins, then once it cooled, removed the backing. I've used the skins a few times since, and it's working out great so far!

I got this top to use as an outer layer for cold weather running, and a base layer for skiing. So far so good. It's a comfy shirt and good for activity. The sleeves are nice and long to cover up my chilly fingers. It's loose enough to fit a thin top underneath as well. I am 5'7", 145 and got a size medium.

I bought these in the red in an XL. I am 5'7"150 lb 29 waist, 40 hips with larger thighs, and they fit slightly loose, like I was hoping for. The fabric is slightly stretchy and durable. I wear them for XC riding and downhill, very comfortable for both. Wish they came with a chamois, but I already have a couple so I can live with it.

I was looking for a lighter pair of short boots, and these fit the bill perfectly. They are very cute and well made. The outer material is very soft! Sadly, I scuffed them up a little already. They don't have great support or traction, but I can deal with that. Maybe some cheap insoles are a good idea. I ordered my usual size 9, and they fit just right. I think they look good with skinny jeans, and will probably look good when it is warmer out with a dress or maybe even shorts. Very happy with my purchase!

I looove this hoody! It is extremely soft and comfy, and warm. The length is perfect for me, I am 5'7" and it is long enough to cover most of my bum. The sleeves are also perfect, a little long and thats how i like it! (by the way I got a large) The first day I wore this I got a lot of compliments on it. The lime is very lime and what I thought was kinda gray is actually a light purple. The colors look really good together too! Will be good for wearing around town and weekend ski trips this winter! Wish I could afford to get the pink one too...
