Catherine Greenwald's Bio

When not working with words, I can be found snowboarding, biking (mountain and road, I don't discriminate), and hiking. Indoors, I'm into good food & wine, and keeping the peace between dogs and cats.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Getting to the point where I could even use this watch was painful due to its horrible supporting website and app (which you HAVE to register with before you can use the thing). *deleted snarky commend about website*. Multiple emails and calls to customer support finally resolved it. And THEN, it doesn't even work properly when swimming (which is why I got it, for the swim functionality). It registered less than half the yardage of the people I was swimming with, all of whom were using Garmins. To be fair, this is a common problem with trackers -- I had been borrowing my husband's old Garmin, which makes no claim to be useful for swimming, and had to stick it in my cap to keep it at the surface of the water and in contact with the satellite. But this one has a swim function, so you'd presume it could handle being 30 inches underwater. Now that I've checked the user forums, it looks like I'm not alone -- basically, this thing simply doesn't work for tracking swimming. If you're not interested in that, you may be fine with this watch. Me, I wish I'd spent the money on a Garmin.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I was an early Hoka adopter but had a hard time with the fit once they started trying to make their shoes look more 'normal' - lost that nice wide fit that I loved. Tried the Altras but they were way too wide and sloppy, and the zero drop just isn't for me. Then these came out -- and they're perfect! Plenty of cushioning, with a nice wide forefoot but excellent fit across the instep and no slipping in the heel. As first these felt pretty firm and kind of flat underfoot -- have to say, I do miss the 'bathtub' effect of the Hokas. However, once they've broken in they've conformed more to my foot. The cushioning is a bit soft, so I can feel rocks underfoot and I'm not sure just how long these will last., but I'm hoping at least a season or two.
Sizing is true to size -- after reading some reviews that said they ran big, I decided to go down a half size but had to return them and get my usual size.

I concur with the reviewers who felt this runs a bit small -- or maybe it feels that way because, as others say, it's pretty thick material. However, it has loosened up a bit after a few washings, so I think it will just get better the more you wear it. And while it's thick, it doesn't feel too noticeably hot, which is great.

Either that or it really takes the 'relaxed' concept as far as possible. If you don't want it to hang off of you, size down one size. Fit aside, it's great for hot-weather workouts, especially because it doesn't stink. I did get some sun through it, so that is something to be aware of.

I picked up two of these (one for my husband, and then one for me because I didn't have time to look for a women's version) before a bike touring trip -- best buy I could of made! My husband wore it biking when he needed cover from the relentless sun, and didn't overheat. I wore it after riding just to not get any more sun than I already had -- it also worked great at the beach. Can't go wrong with this one.

Fit: Runs small

Returned this because it definitely runs on the small side -- unless you like your workout tops tight. But there isn't any stretch in this so it's not particularly comfortable. Still undecided as to whether I'll order a larger size -- it's just OK, but I do need a sleeveless top like this.

If you're still riding a 26 inch bike, do yourself a favor -- stop. Get this bike. SO MUCH FUN! Climbs like a dream and is a revelation on the downhill. I can roll right over rocky, uneven terrain that I couldn't handle very well on my old bike. Sandy, loose patches are no problem thanks to the wide tires. As you can probably tell I'm not a racer, and not a super technically advanced rider, but this bike has given me the confidence to get back into SPD pedals, which has also made a huge difference.
I chose this bike because I was intrigued by the 27.5 plus concept , and this one is one of the most affordable ones out there (forget the women's models, they were way out of my price range). I feel like I've gotten a lot of bang for my buck, and am looking forward to this summer on the trails!

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

I got this for my daughter who just moved to Seattle and needed a pack that would be usable in PNW weather. I haven't had a chance to give it to her yet but a co-worker who saw I'd gotten it said that it was his go-to pack for the years he was bike commuting in Seattle, and the rain never once got through to his laptop. He says if you need something weatherproof, this is definitely THE bag. He did say that he felt it was a little heavy, but honestly, it doesn't seem any heavier than any other commuting bag I've looked at.

Fit: Runs large

I really like this shirt, and expect to get a lot of wear out of it, it's obviously a high-quality make. However, it is a bit large and boxy -- can't help feeling a little like I'm wearing my jammies when I have it on! But I guess everyday clothes that feel like pajamas = a good thing. And I won't worry too much about running it through the dryer.

Fit: True to size

At the risk of sounding like all the other reviews, I can verify that this shirt has an incredible against-the-skin feel. Yes, soft. So soft. I also love the color (got it in the bay laurel) -- different from the usual options for flannels. I've washed it but was afraid to run it through the dryer, so I can't report whether or not it shrinks. Runs true to size.

I ordered these for my daughter who is a whole size smaller than I am, but they fit me almost perfectly! I almost kept them for myself, but they were a tad bit narrow, not surprising considering they're 8s, not 9s like I usually wear. But they do seem like they would be super comfortable in the right size -- very supportive but not heavy. And definitely very good looking!

I gave this as a Christmas gift but definitely need to get one for myself as well -- it's SO soft and snuggly, if it had been in my size I might have kept it! I got the Ombre fade, which looked very nice and had something of a slimming look.

I got this for my son who is going to college in the upper midwest, where winter is really winter. He's very happy with the jacket -- great cushy down feel, really warm, and looks great (he's very style conscious). THe is 6 feet and 195, the XL was big enough to satisfy his preference for loose-fitting stuff, especially since the cut through the body is pretty boxy.

I got these to replace an identical pair my husband lost after wearing them constantly (on and off the slopes) for two years. He wasn't at all interested in trying any other glove, these work great for him even though he has circulation issues and is constantly dealing with cold hands. He's a happy camper again!

I sized down a half size on this shoe, as I had with the other Hokas I've owned. Unfortunately, it seems to absolutely run true to size, so the one I got was definitely too small, with no wriggle room at all. Too bad, it felt great underfoot, but running in it was not an option.

I loved my 2016 Hovercraft but was intrigued by the Ultracraft's new design for this year and the prospect of a lighter board--so I pulled the trigger on this. At first I thought I'd made a terrible mistake; it seemed like the Hovercraft made me a better rider, but the Ultracraft just exposed my weaknesses. This board wants to turn and it wants to GO, and I was just along for the ride, barely hanging on. However, after some fiddling with the bindings setup and a few days of riding, I'm a total convert. NOTHING could possibly be better in powder. No matter how heavy or deep, this board just powers through it with ease. Like the Hovercraft it carves like a dream, just with a zippier, more nimble (but not squirrely) feel. I'm appreciating the lifted tail, which makes for an overall less stiff feel than the old design. For some reason, in keeping with the black-on-black stealth color scheme, this board seems to fly under the radar a little more than the Hovercraft does, which always attracted a ton of attention to the point of almost too much.

I've had these for a few years; I got them in the green because that color was on sale, and even though it doesn't go with a thing I own I still bring these out often because they're so warm. I can wear them well past temperatures where I would usually pull out the mittens! Super breathable/fast-drying, too. I went out in the rain a few weeks ago and ended up completely soaked, even all the Gore-Tex stuff; we stopped by a fire pit in the resort plaza to warm up a bit, and I pulled off the gloves and held them close (but not too close!!) to the flames. They immediately started steaming, and within 5 minutes the glove's outer surfaces were dry. A few more minutes, and I put my hands into relatively dry gloves. Amazing!

I got this after returning the Heywood dress because it was huge -- this fit a lot better in a large across the shoulders and arms, but there's just a lot of fabric in the back. I think I just have to get used to this style. But the fabric is very nice and soft, the Sugar Pine color is fantastic (better than the photo) and the details are well-done.
