This light is very bright and easy to mount.
I bought this to put on my tandem bike to ride from various local establishments at night. The light does a decent job of illuminating obstacles and letting drivers know you're there.
My only complaint is that the mount is a stretchy rubbery band that I feel will wear out or get heat damaged sooner than solid plastic, but time will tell.
The fit on these is different from most other underwear I've had. The legs are longer than normal, but it works great because they don't ride up as much. The merino material is very soft and odor resistant.
So far I've only used it on my road bike on fairly smooth roads. You really have to tighten all the screws to keep it from shifting. I can't imagine using it on a mountain bike trail. The required tightening would probably cause the plastic to snap.
I use these for biking to work because I have a lens set for during the day and then a set for the ride home in the evening. It's fairly easy to change the lenses, but I haven't learned how to do it without getting finger prints everywhere. I don't know if it's the vents on the frame or a coating on the lenses, but they seem to recover from condensation faster than my last pair of sunglasses. The case that comes with them is very handy and has pockets for your extra lenses.
My fiancee was looking for a jacket to run the Seattle marathon in. This one is very lightweight but the material didn't seem like it would be very breathable, it almost had a thin plastic feel. She ended up going with http://www.backcountry.com/gore-running-wear-air-gt-as-jacket-womens
The price points are very different, but this would be good for someone looking for a reasonably priced rain jacket for hiking/walking in.
I got this for my fiancee and she really likes it. It's a great looking dress with all the benefits of being made of merino wool.
This gets the job done and is a good buy for the price. The fit is a little small so you may want to go up a size. They should have spent the extra money to get Velcro brand fasteners for the sleeves because these are not great, but they work.
My fiancee got this to run the Seattle marathon. She is tall and often has problems with sleeve length on clothing but this fit great. It has held up great in rain and wind and breathes well. The back pocket is really useful for Honey Stingers, gloves, etc.
I bought this with the Vaporshell pants to make my winter bike rides weatherproof. This jacket has held up in light rain and snow and the breathability is nice. My only complaint is the "velcro" cuffs. They are pretty flimsy and definitely not Velcro brand.
I bought these for riding my bike because bike specific pants like this are usually really expensive. As others mentioned, the cuffs are bell-bottomy but it's nice because it's easy to slip them on with shoes. The wide cuffs are not ideal for biking so I just tuck them into my shoe covers.
I rode a few times in light rain and snow and they kept me dry while breathing enough to keep me from getting swampy.
I bought these to hike the Zion Narrows in the fall. I wear a size 11.5 and they fit nicely into my Merrell water shoes. They did a good job of keeping my feet warm as long as the cuff didn't go under water, but most of the hike was near knee deep so I'd have to turn my foot upside down and dump the extra cold water out once I got onto land.
These would probably do a great job for their intended purpose, boating.
and it keeps things dry. What else do you want me to say?
In addition to being very warm, it has the other benefits of merino wool: breathability, odor control, softness, etc.
The powder does a pretty good job of controlling the odor. Every now and then there will be a diaper-like smell, but it's not too bad.
"This skirt is fun and flirty! When I first put this skirt on, I thought it might be going back because it was a little short. I kept it & I am sure glad that I did. I?m 5?10 and it was several inches above the knee."
I love the color and the simplicity of this skirt! It is one of my favorite new skirts. Perfect for more relaxing occasions. It looks very flattering on and hits at the knee. I?m 5?10 and 145lbs and the medium was a little roomy.
"This skirt is perfect for any occasion! It is very comfortable and it can be dressed up for work or go more casual with sandals. I?m 5?10 and 145lbs and the medium was a little loose on me, but I don?t mind."
This is my first and only pair of skins and they work well. The glue has stuck even when wet and the grip has surprised me.
I have these mounted on Black Diamond Zealots and they work well. I've been touring with them a few times and they're quite a bit heavier than a dedicated touring binding, but fill a niche for someone who wants one setup for inbounds and backcountry skiing.
