Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Getting up for 7:30am class when it's 36 degrees is so painful. Wearing this fleece makes the traumatic experience a whole lot better. (Maybe that's why I'm the only one who hasn't cried this semester!) The warmth is outstanding. The furry lining feels like a blanket on your skin, and gives it a cushiony thickness so you can recline anywhere and instantly fall asleep. Despite the thick cushiness, it's got a flattering fit. I get many compliments on the feather print. It's got so many colors that you can wear any shirt underneath. Versatile and winning.

My actual body dimensions are something like 33 chest/29 waist/37 hips and I got the Small. It's pretty roomy and easy to move in, with a sweatshirt underneath. Despite not being tight, it does lend a slicker silhouette than typical snowboard jackets that make you look like a marshmallow-shaped adolescent.
I might have been easily able to swing an Extra Small but whatever.
There are secret pockets everywhere! Conveniently located, stealthy but easily accessible.
I wore this on a 30-minute walk to school in 4 inches of mushy snow and was perfectly warm.

Edges darken

I bought the green/yellow/black color, and got tons and tons of compliments on how cute it was!
However, after about 4-5 months of wearing, the edges of the yellow band and the green little piece that holds down excess strap, have turned brown!
At first I thought it was just dirty and tried to clean it but no, the plastic is actually discolored :(
The watch wasn't very expensive so I'm not too mad, I would totally get it in more colors.

Somehow, despite having flap pockets in the front, this sweatshirt hugs your body and makes you look 10 lbs thinner. That was a very nice surprise.
The material isn't bulky, but it's very warm and it blocks a lot of wind. It has a smooth surface, so it layers easily under a coat.
I got the green in XS and the black in S, and both fit well.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm in dental school, and I bought this because so many others recommended it.
The Jake Blue Emboss color was darker than the picture online. Still pretty though. The oblique zippers are really awkward, not sure what their purpose is. The internal pocket for sunglasses is in the middle section, where they could get crushed if the backpack falls forward. And, there's no microfiber lining. Fail. Also, the laptop pocket has no microfiber or fleece lining.
The other internal pockets are nice. I can fit all the little things I need.
However, I can't fit more than 1-2 medium size (i.e. 1.5 inch thick) textbooks in the backpack overall. Luckily, most of my reading materials are on my laptop so I don't need much. Still, it's disappointing that I can't fit anything moderately boxy (like a typodont) in there.
Considering the lack of size, it's definitely not worth $125. I've tried it for a month, and I'm not impressed, so I might return it.

I'm 5'1", 114 lbs and the small fits perfect. It's tight and it digs a bit on my sides, but I can run w/o bouncing and that's the whole point. I have an extremely hard time finding bras that really hold things down. Most of the cheap ones you find in stores are too soft/stretchy. This one is firm, and it works.
The orange color is like sherbet. Not my favorite, I prefer more saturated colors, but people say it looks good on me. I just wish it came w/ pockets like the North Face Stow n' Go bra.

As a skydiver, I'm always looking for an extra rubber band, closing cord, hair tie, chapstick, lens cloth, etc...this bra totally solves that problem. Now I never have to interrupt what I'm doing to go look for stuff.
I'm a 32 band, one boob is a B, the other is a C, so obviously no bra is gonna fit me perfect, but a size Small works great.
Compared to the Bounce-B-Gone bra, this one isn't as tight/compressing.
Style-wise, it's flattering with well-placed seams. It covers enough that I can sit on the ground and lean over my rig to close it, w/o giving all my friends a free show. Plus, the extra front pocket makes things a little thicker so it's not noticeable if I'm cold.
I just wish it came in more than 3 colors!

I bought the Helio XS (5'1", 114 lbs, 37" hips, shaped like a pencil but chubby around the waist).
Compared to other running boyshorts that I have by Roadrunner and Under Armour, these work better at wicking sweat. Maybe merino is just better than synthetics?
Unlike my other pairs, these also don't cause muffin top or roll on the legs.
I'm going to try them in a size S too. Wish they had more of those in stock.

I bought this in Grey Slub which looks very nice. But, there are a few design flaws that hamper its utility:
1) The skateboard straps go across the external pockets, so that you can't fully unzip them without 1st loosening the straps
2) There's no easy-access mesh pocket for a water bottle (although, the upper side zip pocket fits a 16.9 oz bottle perfectly)
3) The fleecy laptop pocket is inside the back padding which is sweet, but...there's nothing to keep the laptop from sliding around in there. I forgot to zip it one time, and my laptop fell on the ground (oops)
4) The snap-on pouch on the shoulder strap can fall off easily, and it doesn't hold anything bigger than a thinly cased iPhone.
Some of the features that I really like:
1) The cooler pocket is great for food. Convenient if you get take-out at school and don't finish it.
2) The top pocket for sunglasses is nice but I wish it was more padded
3) Chest-straps are very comfy
4) Waist straps are good and can be hidden away
5) The side pockets seem designed for pencils/pens and the bag is quite school-friendly.
6) Padding is very comfy overall.

Overall, I like this backpack. With a few minor mods, it will be perfect.
