He Even Sleeps In It
5 5

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought this for my boyfriend and he wears it everywhere. He's seriously obsessed and thinks I'm the greatest girlfriend ever for buying it for him. He's 6"6' and about 195 lbs -- the large was long enough and loose enough to layer under without being ridiculously baggy. The sherpa lining is super soft (it only covers the interior back, not the sleeves so no overheating) and the quilting is cushion-y and huggable. I love it just as much as he does!

Here's a pic I was able to steal of him while we were at the dog park - for all of the internet to see :)

this jacket can be worn on it's own, or zipped into one of the other wax jackets for ladies, for added warmth.
It runs really small though!!!! I'm usually a US size 4-6 depending on the brand and how fitted I want the item. I was a US 10 in this so that I could wear thicker long sleeves under!!!
Totally agree with the statement below to size up 1 size if you want it snug, but 2 sizes if you want to layer.

Warm but Big!

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 125 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

This jacket is super warm and squishy - it's definitely comfortable and would certianly keep me warm in the snowy mountains of Utah. I do wish it was a little more tapered at the waist though! It's so warm and puffy that i would not need to wear any jackets or layers underneath (other than a basic long sleeve) so the jacket was just way too big. I'm normally a small/medium just depending on use and brand, but I would probably need an XS in this to actually have it fit snug around my waist but i'd be worried that my arm movement would be too restricted at that point.

Overall, i think this is another Patagonia parka where you just have to have a very specific body type, or no matter the size, it's just not going to work for you.

I LOVE these slippers! I bought them for chilly mornings when I need to take my dog out, but am still in my loungewear/pajamas. Theyre really squishy and comfortable and the synchilla lining is incredibly soft so i like to wear them without socks for the added luxury. The bottom of the slipper is really rugged as well, so i have no issues stepping on ice, or thin snow (as long as there's not enough for my foot to sink into).
I'm usually a size 7 shoe and i bought the mediums in these - there was a little extra room but exactly what i was looking for in a winter slipper

Love this jacket - it DEFINITELY runs large. I normally go with a medium in jackets. and tried on a small in this knowing Fjallraven is big and still ended up in an XS. I love the super deep pockets on this jacket as well as the super deep interior mesh pockets. It's really warm, but with that warmth also comes weight. I wouldn't necessarily describe this as bulky as when I think bulky, i think michelin man puffy jacket.... but it's definitely heavy and thick.

I do want to point out that this jacket is NOT VEGAN as it is made with real leather pieces on it. That said though, it is environmentally friendly made and does have faux fur on the hood.

I wear a 32B bra and ordered a medium in this top. It did not cover the girls well at all. First of all, there's no padding or support in this top so they wanted to fall right out the bottom. I could see myself easily flashing everyone with a simple tug on the straps to adjust myself after getting out of water. There was also nothing built into the suit to position the girls in a flattering way. It was either you have a perfect chest or you don't with this. I think it may work for someone with a smaller chest but even then I don't know that most women would be comfortable in this top as I'd seriously question if your boobs will actually stay covered in it regardless of size.

bigger than i expected but awesome

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this pack to be able to hold my DSLR camera along with my go pro and ideally some snacks and a hydration bladder. It definitely holds all of these things but is still MASSIVE. My favorite thing about this pack is that the hip belt has elastic pockets on both sides so I can hold my phone on one side for easy access to snapchats and such (i have an iphone 6) and my camera lens on the other when i pull my camera out.
The pocket for the camera is what takes up the majority of the pack. it could easily fit a mega zoom or sport lens, multiple lense options, and/or multiple camera bodies if you wish. The top pocket is big enough for me to carry a 2.5 hydration bladder along with lunch and a packable jacket.
Like I said, totally love this pack but I mainly bought this for smaller hikes and touristy travel and this thing is way too bif for that (there's a lot of empty space due to me only bringing my one dslr camera and a few other smaller items) so i plan on looking for a smaller pack to have as well.

I love this cup but make a mess every time i use it as the lid sits inside of the cup, instead of being screwed on outside of the cup like other hydroflask lids. Since the cup is already small, i want to fill it as full as i can to maximize my efficiency and limit my trips to the kitchen for coffee refills but i always either underpour and dont get enough or overpour and create a mess.
A little mark on the inside of the cup would solve my problem and make me the happiest of campers.... glampers. (I know, im high maintenance but hey -- honest feedback here).

I bought these sunglasses as a gift for my mom for her birthday - I live in a different state and when I saw her a month later for Mother's Day, I tried them on to see what everyone raves about - I was not at all impressed with the quality of the lens. There was no "ooh, ahh" moment when I put them on and looked around, it was more like a "wait, are these really Maui Jims??" To make matters worse, one of the lens' is somehow already scratched (Even with the use of the case!) - an almost $300 pair of sunglasses with supposedly amazing lenses, should not be able to be scratched with minimal use and proper care. When I called Maui Jim to start a warranty claim on the sunglasses, they told me the lenses weren't covered for scratches under their warranty - even though they note they have a 2 year warranty and my mom has only had these for a month!
I'm beyond disappointed and no longer recommend Maui Jim to any of my customers, friends, or family. If you're spending this much on a pair of sunglasses, it better be amazing and these simply are not.

I thought I was happy with the barely baggies until i tried these. These are AMAZING! they dont dig in to your hips like the barely baggies do (even with the elastic) and have just the right amount of coverage. Super lightweight and breathable - I would buy them in so many different colors and wear them as my everyday short if I could!

I bought this hat as a birthday gift for a friend and was a little bummed to discover that the hat is really a dark navy all around, not the faded blue/navy mesh color that's pictured. I still like the hat and I'm sure my friend will too, but I do wish the faded blue color actually existed as I think it's an awesome contrast! All well!

I'm picky about my swimsuits (i mean what girl isnt) and I was worried that this suit wasnt going to lift my girls up enough for my liking as the models really dont show much cleavage. I was pleasantly surprised that the suit actually gave me just enough lift to feel confident in without being way too much and making me feel overexposed.
In the end, the suit didnt work for me as the band was a little too tight for my liking (and non-adjustable) while the next size up took away my lift feature that I liked. I'm definitely going to try another Maaji top though as I love the versatility of these suits and I'm sure there's a design out there for me!

PS - I wear a 32B bra and purchased a medium. The size chart says I should have been a small but I knew there was no way that was going to work. I'd either size up or stick with what you know your size should be.

I love these shoes!!! They keep my ankles nice and straight and are very comfortable to walk/stand/run in with the cloud foam. I am usually a 7.5 and these were a little big for me, so I had to return to size down to a 7. I actually bought them to play soccer in because I joined a co-ed league (for kicks and giggles) and didnt want to waste money on cleats but still wanted something with good traction. Now I have something for soccer, trail running, AND hiking in!

These didnt work for me at all. As soon as I stood up in them, I knew they weren't going to work. However the heel cushion is made, made my ankle not be able to stand straight and made it naturally want to curve in (pronate). I'm usually a 7.5 in shoes and these were still too big, so if you do give these a try, I would recommend going down a half size. I think these would be perfect for someone with supinated ankles when they walk/run as the sole will correct it, but they didnt work for me.

I was super stoked on these as I thought they were really cute but they broke within a month - and with minimal use.
I saw someone's review that they broke quickly and were uncomfortable and I didn't think much of it as this is certainly designed to be a very casual sandal and not intended to last for years, but a month?!
First of all, the straps already had lose threading coming out of the braided part when I received them but I ignored it as it was a cheap sandal and it was still cute. but now I can't wear them ever again because the strap came entirely out of place.
Apparently these can only be used as a once in a while sandal and you need to tread very lightly in order to make them last.

I wanted to like this shirt but was disappointed with the quality. The shirt is incredibly lightweight which is nice but it is not at all durable. It got a loose thread that quickly turned into a hole just from wearing my backpack with this shirt on.
The back design is a cute little peek a boo when you're not moving, but as soon as you lift your arms at all, the slit turns into an awkward whole that leaves the shirt looking like I cut it myself.
Also didnt really like the feel of this shirt, personally. I was thinking it would feel like a cool synthetic type of material but it just reminded me of those super thick, cottony paper towels that my grandma always bought for her house.

I wore this shirt to Bryce Canyon and will continue to wear it as a workout shirt, but dont think i'll be wearing it for any more adventures as it cant handle anything coming into contact with it.

These come in a little box that say "Wool with Sex Appeal" but i did not feel sexy in these. They were awkwardly narrow in the crotch and covered way too much of my butt.... I honestly felt like they were an updated granny panty.
Maybe my figure just inst made for these but they are now shoved in the back of my dresser and will probably only be used for when Aunt Flo comes around.

These things are beyond comfortable. They sit just right on my hips without squeezing too much or being too loose - so they stay on without creating that awkward muffin top look that a lot of undies can.
I put them on last night after I showered and wore yoga pants over them and you could definitely see the outline of them so if you're looking for alternative no-show underwear options for leggings and yoga pants other than a thong, these are not going to do the trick. BUT (or should i say butt ha) I have very thin jeggings on today and you cant see a panty line so they succeed there!
I also really like how these look on their own as well - enough coverage in the front and back with a good amount of cheek showing so I'm sure your boyfriend will love you in them just as much as you love yourself in them.

The soft quilted pattern of this bag is super similar to the ever popular Vera Bradley bags. Difference between this Prana bag and the ones made by Vera is that this bag has WAY more features. There's multiple pockets on the inside to store your phone, notebook, water bottle - or my favorite - your shoes to keep them away from the clothes you have in the bag. Plus Prana is way more eco friendly so not only will the bag benefit you, but it benefits the world too.

This is a great summer tent for the family but doesnt do so well with staying upright in harsh winds.
The unique design allows for nearly vertical side walls and a good amount of head space so that everyone can walk around with ease and without having to duck their heads.

I personally would HAVE to add on a few gear loops to have a place for everyone to store their phones/books./etc. and would like to eventually invest in the added
