These are super comfortable lightweight shoes. You will be shocked how light they are. They feel pretty true to size. Love the blue laces and details. They do come with spare laces in a neutral color if you're not loving the blue.

The down in this blanket is top notch! No pokey feathers, just down. Excellent loft, super lightweight and very warm.

Great couch blanket for someone with dogs. Easy to shake all the dog hair off without feeling the need to wash all the time.

If you're the kind of person that prefers to sleep with just the weight of a sheet and not a heavy comforter, this blanket it for you. Fits on a queen size bed perfectly. But may slip off if you're using it in combination with other blanket. So may be better reserved for your couch or tent where gravity won't pull it away from you.

This is a great lightweight top for high output activity. Keeps you cool and dry. I wouldn't plan to naturally wear this on it's own. Great for skiing, running, and/or hiking etc. as your next-to-skin layer.

Quite fitted. So if you don't like the slim fit, you may want to order up a size. Otherwise, it's true to size.

Got these for my friends' new Sprinter Van. They absolutely love them and used them more than even they expected. No problem fitting in their cupholders. And the perfect size for their drinks; coffee, cocktails, wine...

Tip: when buying for more than one person. Get different colors so they are easily distinguishable in the cupholders.

Gave this hat as a gift. Love the fabric, fit and feel. And looks great on my BF too.
The Uncle blue isn't a bright blue like it appears. It's more of a navy color. But still a great hat.

I'm really enjoying my new Darn Tough socks. They are a great quality. I haven't washed them a ton yet, but they seem to be holding up really well.

This particular style seems to run a bit larger than others I got from DT. I kinda wish I had gone down one size. But that could be because I'm just on the cusp of a XL.

I love Zion stretch. I saw these were a slimmer fit so thought I'd give them a try. Now, I'm considered a skinny guy. I didn't realize I had some thighs until I tried these on. I guess all those lunges in yoga are having an affect!
I'm 6'2, 175lb. Lately, I don't have any trouble with 32 in. waist. The waist fit great. The lower thighs were a bit too snug and I don't think they would have stretched enough for comfort. These are awesome pants if you're looking for a skinny fit. I'm gonna stick to the regular prAna Zion stretch pants.

I bought this as a gift for my friend's birthday two weeks ago and she's worn it every day since. The sweater is a timeless Patagonia piece. It's super durable, so it's handling the excessive wear really well. My friend raves about being able to wear it to the office as an outer layer and on cold morning hikes in the PNW as a mid layer. The fabric insulates the wearer from windy days extremely well and the breathability is comparable to wool pieces.
I highly recommend the Better Sweater to anyone that wants a functional layer to keep them warm and to anyone that wants to enjoy the benefits of a durable outdoor piece without looking like they're wearing outdoor gear.

Love the wider toe box in these shoes. Just right without causing my feet to slip around inside. The 3mm drop is nice too as I prefer to run with minimal drop. Lightweight. And feels true to size for my big size 13's

These towels are the best. I prefer them over my Manduka Yogitoes as they feel softer to me. Mind you, the towel does need to be slightly damp to create a grip. If you don't sweat quickly like me, you can spray a little water on it where your feet and hands go and you'll be good.

For some reason, we have the Equa Hold mixed in with the basic equa towels on this page. The Equa Hold has little rubber nubbins on the bottom to help keep them in place. They are very similar to Yogitoes but I think superior as they are smaller and you don't feel them under your feet as much. The Equa hold comes in the Binda and Veradero colors and are priced at $52 (a great price when compare to Yogitoes).
