It's all been said. Add another 5 star review to the list. This is the only pair of shorts that I wear routinely when on outdoor adventures. Because of that, I had to buy another pair so I could mix it up with color at least.

Super comfortable. Stretchy is good for climbing and hiking etc. Zippered leg pocket is nice. Length is a nice knee length . . . longish; but, not too long for my taste. Light and breathe well.

I have two of these beanies. The first one (purple/blue/orange) I have had for quite some time and has been put through the wringer for sure. I love it so much, I purchased another in Primary colors.

The beanie is really comfy and slouches nicely. feels light. wear it and wash it over and over . . . it just gets softer.

I have what I think would be a normal average sized head -
M/L. I have washed my first beanie close to a dozen times and worn it enough to necessitate that amount of washing. I have not seen the stretching mentioned from the other reviewer. Not that theirs did not stretch; but, mine have not. I have two Trio beanies and several other Neff beanies. I have noticed stretching on another style of Neff beanie I own that is made from other materials.

Great hat. I love the bolder color versions of this. My wife hates the colors I choose.

This is a really great pack. I like this more than all my previous packs to date in this size. The main features that I really like are:

1- Comfortable to wear. Straps and support are well placed and padded
2- Great suspension. The ErgoActive suspension really works and allows movement and swiveling without feeling rigid. I had my doubts about the sliding connected straps; however, I was happily proven wrong on my first outing.
3- Thin width. I like that the pack is thin enough to allow for full arm swing and fits through tight spaces when canyoneering.
4- Durable 420d nylon. I often use this pack for canyoneering which beats every piece of gear you use. 420 is very tuff.

From here the list goes on with lash points, pockets, straps and so on. I primarily use this pack for climbing and canyoneering. You can use it for so much more. This really is a feature packed bag for all your outdoor activities.

Note: For canyoneering, I added grommets to the bottom of the pack so it can drain. Works like a charm and I much prefer this pack to the few actual canyoneering packs made by Canyoneering brands.

First off, I am fully devoted to the Smith brand. I have no endorsement or sponsorship; but, after using many brands, I have stuck exclusively with Smith of over a decade. The company is solid. The quality, features and technology are solid. Smith's warranty is second to none.

I own more than a small amount of goggles, glasses etc. Between Motocross, biking, skiing, casual and so forth, I have at least a dozen Smith products for my face at any time. This does not include the many Smith products for my wife and kids.

Applying this to the Overdrive:
I have had many Smith interchangeable glasses over the years . . . my favorite being the Prophets. The Overdrive is awesome in many ways; but, has one major flaw. In most cases the design and function are better than past interchangeable models; however, the Overdrive either fits your face or it doesn't.

While Smith has several current interchangeable models, they only have one pair that isn't a blade or similar. The overdrive is the only current pair that has a full wrapped frame around the lens. For people who like a traditional style frame with interchangeable features, we're left with one option. If this option doesn't work for you, you're out of luck.

Why they either fit or don't:
Read other reviews and you will find this. These glasses sit high on the face. While Smith added a new way to adjust the nose bridge to fit a wider array of nose widths, it isn't actually functional in the way the glasses fit on your face. If you have a thin nose, squeeze the nose bridge pieces close together. This allows the hydrophilic megol nose pads to stick to your nose and hold them in place when wet. The problem is with the pads together, the glasses are pushed farther away from the face and higher up creating a larger gap between your cheeks and the glasses. This allows air and dust and even dirt/sand from your MTB tire to come up into your eyes. If you spread the nose bridge out, the glasses sit closer to the face cutting the gap and shielding the eyes better; however, you lose contact with the hydrophilic nose pads allowing the glasses to slip when you sweat. Thus, if the glasses fit your face just right, you may get the advantage of the non slip pads and protection of a small gap between cheeks and glasses. Sadly, many people I have talked to have had the same experience as me. And I assume that some people who love the glasses just don't realize the potential problem.

I hope Smith will build another option in the full frame category (with interchangeable lenses) or work out a better way to adjust the nose bridge without pushing the glasses away from the face . . . ie: sliding nose pads instead of pivoting.

That being said, the quality is good. I am going to keep them and deal with them as if I don't need the nose pads sticking to my nose. Keeping the bridge spread and glasses close to my face for protection is better than away from the face and higher up.

I know the product is quality and backed by a strong warranty. struggling between 3 and 4 stars based on the nose bridge. A long love of the company's products gets these a 4 star.

TRY THEM ON BEFORE YOU PURCHASE.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been using this all summer long with pleasing results.

In Salt Lake I usually fill with ice once a day and then keep adding water as needed. Water stays cold cold cold.

When climbing and canyoneering in central and southern Utah, this has sat in the car (100°+ weather) and still kept cold with ice from the day before. On these trips I love having ice cold water waiting. Again, add more water as needed. It will be chilled and ready to drink almost immediately.

A nice way to keep cold water without the space of a larger cooler. As long as you start with it full of ice, you will get plenty of cycles.

I'm not entirely sure how long ice will stay; but, I have kept ice in the water for at least 24 hours in a vehicle including hot sun during daylight hours.

Cons: $$$. Daaaaang they're expensive. By the time you add a straw lid, tax and possibly shipping ...you're looking at almost 50 bones.

For some, wear and tear might be a con. Not integrity, just cosmetics. Scratches and such show up quickly ...at least on white. Doesn't bother me; but, it might bother some who don't want to baby it.

Expensive; but, IT WORKS!

The only stars I would deduct would be for the high price. Seeing as it works exactly how it is hyped to and I knew the price going in ...I give it 5 stars anyway. Just the same, I'll buy more during sales.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

Dansko has been around for a while now. A couple first discovered similar clogs in a shop in Europe and decided to start making them. Now based in Pennsylvania, the company is 100% employee owned. The business has a high level of interest in good sustainable manufacturing out of green buildings.

Although I have been aware of the Dansko name, I have never owned a pair. I have friends and family who work in the medical field as nurses, PA'€™s and so on. From them I have heard stories about how popular Dansko clogs and shoes are in industries where people spend a lot of time on their feet. While the strong reputation seems to be based on quality and comfort, let's be honest about the medical field'€™s reasoning ...scrubs are basically pajamas ...clogs are basically more presentable and durable slippers. That is a positive comment by the way. Slippers are comfy!

After wearing my Dansko Wynn shoes for a month, I have found the footbed to be very comfortable. There is cushion and support at the same time. Softness can be misleading since many footbeds can pack down and, in essence, feel hard. Danskos are made with a triple density EVA molded footbed with good arch support. We humans spend a lot of time either on our backs sleeping or on our feet. With a bed mattress, support and layer composition become more critical for comfort than softness. Many of us might benefit from thinking about our shoes in a similar fashion. Dansko makes footbeds with layers that support and cushion. This has helped my feet feel good after long days in these shoes.

As good as the footbeds are, if you require orthotics, these Wynn shoes and other Dansko clogs have removable footbeds.

I can'€™t say that I have put these through the ringer yet. However, from initial inspection and a month of use, these shoes have a solid quality feel and look. The construction is great. The leather uppers are thick and nicely finished.

It is proudly stated that Dansko soles have good grip and are very resistant to slipping. This feature is probably taken for granted by many; but, would be greatly appreciated on hard slick floors or during wet winter months. I concur with Dansko'€™s claim. The Wynn shoes I am wearing have a very nice grippy sole.

The PU midsole offers additional cushioning. The rockered bottom feels good when walking. The sole is rigid enough to hold the rocker shape and actually rolls when you walk onto your toes.

In the end, the best thing I can say about the Dansko Wynn shoe is that it feels like a quality made product that I believe will last and hold shape for a long time. It has a comfortable footbed and good sole to make me happy while I try to wear them out. Also, they have no laces. Even my shoes with laces are left loose enough to be slipped on.

It is quality and comfort that make these so popular with folks who spend all day on their feet. I have heard many people preach about how the price tag is worth it. So far they are on track.

I would give them 5 stars on my first month's assessment. I only have one con that seems worthy to note. I have a narrow foot. The toe box in the Wynn seems to be fairly roomy. That being said, Dansko does offer other shoes in both wide and narrow versions as well as standard widths. The "€œProfessional"€ has a different sole and looks more like a classic Clog toward the rear. That being said, the front of the shoe is similar. Style-wise they should fit the same tastes in my opinion.

As for looks, you either like them or you don't. They are by no means a slim little shoe. They may even be considered clunky for some people ...they are clogs. But, if you like the style and you spend a lot of your day on your feet, this may just be your new favorite shoe.

Fit runs true to size in length/a little roomy in width
