Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs large

I've worn this shoe for a few trail runs so far and it is super comfortable. The upper is plush, the toe box is wide (though not Altra wide by any means), and the cushioning feels great.
This is a really fun shoe and will be a great all-around shoe or for hard, dry trails.
There are a few cons I've noticed but none of them major. 1- The laces are too short. If you have to use the heel-locking lace thingy it makes it hard to tie in the end. 2- They run a half size large, at least for me. 3- They are a little heavy but honestly, because of the responsiveness of the shoe, I never really feel it.

Fit: Runs small
Height: 4' 5"
Weight: 105 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

I read the previous reviews about it running large.. it was the complete opposite for me I am normally a size x-small/ small and after buying a small and returning it for a medium, I ended up returning it for a large. So I wish you the best of luck in deciding what size to buy. My advice is to size UP.

My dog is a 100 lb. Black Golden Retriever mix that loves winter and the cold, not so much summer. He just gets too hot, you can find this guy sleeping on the coldest piece of concrete he can find, and would sleep out in the snow if I would let him. Utah has hot, dry summers so I was looking for options to cool him down other than always hiking by the water. We've tested it out a few times and he absolutely loves it. It's nice, damp and cool under the vest, in dry heat it needs a refresher water soak, but even the fact that it's a lighter color on his back instead of just black helps a lot too. We put his pack on over it, he carries his own water. It does get dirty really easily and it can grab some fox tails but I haven't had any get stuck in the vest. As far as how dirty it gets, he's a dog, I think only the humans worry about that stuff. The large fits him perfect and it's easy to put on and doesn't seem to restrict him at all. I'm happy to find a product to make the best dog ever a bit more comfortable in the heat.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was just looking for a watch to track my pace, time and miles and to link my runs to Strava etc. for analysis. This watch does just that! No bells and whistles but no fuss either. Just turn it on and run. I've used it in pretty secluded areas and it works just fine. It connects to my computer really quickly and Garmin Connect is a fun little tool as well.

I've owned versions 7, 8 and 9 of the Ghost and they have all been amazing. I use these for half marathon training and races and have never had a problem with them. There's a reason this shoe is so popular and so highly rated. The comfort level is top notch and the performance is as good as it gets!

My husband and I play a lot of board games so I thought this would be a fun purchase and it was! It does sink down a little in the middle but you can still play most anything on it without a problem, the cup holders are awesome and we even use them to keep our chips and other game pieces in during the game :)

I bought these shoes for my husband and he really likes them. Here's what he says, "they have plenty of cushioning to make them comfortable but not too much. You still have a good feel of the road and a good amount of responsiveness. For a stability shoe, they are really light weight and do the job when it comes to the needed support. The rounded sole results in a natural toe off and makes it fun to pick up the pace! I'm just coming back from an IT band injury and have been blown away with how many miles I'm able to log in these without pain."

I bought this for my husband but I use it just as often :) He likes taking it when he goes running because it's easy to hold, we've taken it on picnics and just carry it around the house when we want to listen to some tunes. The voice threw us off at first but now we love to hear him.. "pairing!" "connnected."
