Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I have been running in Altra Lone Peaks and 1.5's since they came out. I absolutely love the shoes but find the quality control from Altra to be lacking. I think 1 out of 12 plus pairs I have had have come with no defects. The latest pair had the tongue sewn in crooked, the pair before the lace eyelet ripped out after only a few miles, the pair before had a big ball of glue under the liner, and so on. Does this make it less of a perfect shoe for me, no. but it is a big pain in the A$$. I will continue to buy and run in them because when all of the issues are gone they are like slippers for rugged terrain.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small

I bought this hat mainly for running in the heat and wanted something breathable. The first race I used it at the weather changed from good to really bad in a few hours. With rain, hail, snow, and 30 mile an hour winds the brim kept my face protected and the hat controlled the temps.

This is hands down the best lightweight running shirt I have ever used. I got it and ran a 50K in the desert two days later with temps in some canyons close to 90 degrees. I would normally use body glide or something but I didn't want to ruin a new shirt so I didn't and I had no issues with chafing even on the nips. Liked it so well I ordered another. The sleves are a little long but thats a good point when running in the open desert for hours on end.
Love it!
