I am a Cloudveil lover! Their run don't walk jackets are amazing! Never wear out and are super warm! I can't tell you how this hat performs it was nice and I'm sure functional, but my daughter thought it was boyish, so we sent it back. I would have kept it for myself, but it was a little small. I like my hats to cover my entire ear though.

I bought this for my 11 yr old son and he thinks it's really cool. It's fairly warm, but doesn't keep the wind out and with our subzero winters he really needs something else if he's out for long. It's more a "fashion statement" or moderate weather hat, but he's happy and it's comfy. I did have to sew one of the braids back on after his sister pulled it off. Not sure how well they are attached.

These tights are amazing! I thought they might be a gimmick, but they are absolutely fabulous! My measurements weren't even on the chart, so I was perplexed as to which size to choose. Small or Med??? I am 5'9" and 130ish, athletic/hourglass build. I tried one of each and either could work, but opted for the med since they gave me more length and the higher rise gave more back support. The stablix is a great all around support tight. I have some of the other styles and they're all fab, but this one probably has the most areas covered as far as support. They wash up well (I don't dry them). I've used them a lot and they still look and feel great! Once you try them, you'll be hooked!

I love this top! Of course I love all the Icebreaker pieces I own. This is a nice mid-weight top. It is fitted, which I like, and flattering. I got the teal and it's a very nice color. Great for daily use or for cold weather exercise. It layers well and is soft and comfortable. Fits true to size. Nothing bad to say about this shirt! In fact, the price was so good I bought two!

I know I'm getting quality when I purchase anything from this company, but rarely do I get so excited just taking the clothing out of the box! This jacket is perfect! It's cute enough to wear around town, not just for outdoor activities. I think I need an intervention because I'm totally addicted to Icebreaker. The 260 weight is perfect worn alone on cool days and great for layering on cold/frigid days. The red color really pops and the cut is SO flattering. Fits tts, although definitely fitted. I can wear a tee type shirt underneath and a baselayer is no problem, but if you want to layer much more under it you might consider sizing up.

OK, I'm hooked on Icebreaker! The fact that this is a midweight top makes it SO versatile. You can layer it on colder days or wear it alone on mild ones. I love the quality and functionality of Icebreaker products and this is no exception. Runs tts, while still allowing for something underneath if you want and the fit is flattering. All my icebreaker pieces (don't tell my husband how many) have washed up well....without shrinkage and don't seem to pill. Great stuff!!

I'm not sure about this one. So many raves about this top, so I ordered 3 colors and I have to say the fit isn't flattering. The cut is long (and I have a long torso) which is good, but this is really long so that it bunches up around the top of your hips. Arm length too....would fit a gorilla. I don't know if sizing down would help because it seems cut smaller in the shoulders and wide in the waist, which is the opposite of what I need. This fabric seems to highlight every lump or bump, so you can't really wear anything underneath without it being magnified. I don't carry any extra weight in my torso, and don't have this problem with other very tight shirts, so it's perplexing. Seriously, I think it even shows goosebumps! I can't attest to the performance because I can't decide whether or not to send this back. The fabric IS butter soft though.

I LOVE this balaclava! It's thin, but it's warm and more wind resistant than I thought it would be. I have been wearing this on the bike trail on below zero windchill days and it keeps my face warm. I wear a MH windstopper hat on top and my ears stay nice and toasty. Like other reviewers have mentioned, I love that I can pull it down and uncover my entire face or use it as a neck gaitor. I like to periodically uncover my face and some of the other brands are thicker and too tight to be comfortable when I pull it down under my chin. I do get some fogging on my sunglasses, but not as much as with the synthetic balaclavas. I would buy more of these if they were in stock. Highly recommend.

I'm totally sold on CWX tights! They definitely help with my knee pain and intermittent hip flexor irritations. I purchased several different styles and like them all. My size wasn't even on the charts (5'9" 130, athletic legs), so I ordered both a small and med and ended up keeping the medium for length since the compression was similar in both sizes. I wore these under some fleece pants the other day in 7 degree weather (on the bike trail for 2 hours) and I was nice and toasty. I wouldn't wear these alone if it was too cold or if there's much wind, but they are more substantial than the non-insulated variations.

I am skeptical of product descriptions and claims and you can't always trust reviews because we're all built differently and have different needs and expectations. HOWEVER, these things ARE amazing! I've been having trouble with one of the lateral ligaments in my left knee when I run, but when I wear these babies......NO pain!!! I noticed that my legs don't feel as tired after a run and that I don't have any hip flexor pain (although that's in intermittent problem, so who knows). I purchased these, the ventilators and the performix regular and insulated. I think I like the stablix and ventilator best all around, but the others are great too. I am 5'9" 130-135 lbs (athletic legs) and ordered small and med since I wasn't even on the size chart. Either size worked fine, but the small seemed short on me and I could barely tell any difference in the compression. They are high waisted, but have to be to give support in the lower back. I didn't find them hard to get on and off and they wash up well.
