I'm not the biggest fan of dark chocolate, but these taste great! In my opinion it feels a little weird paying $2.99 for a bar of chocolate online for some reason. As far as I could tell that is about as much or less than what you'll pay for pretty much any other vegan chocolate bar, though.

I used this as a meal replacement for the first time today around lunch. It tastes great and has kept me full! I wanted something that would really just hold me over until dinner, and this did the trick. Not crazy filling, but keeps you from starving! I got the Coconut Almond flavor, and just mixed it with water in a blender bottle. The consistency was just a little gritty, but really it was less so than I expected since I didn't use a real blender. The flavor was tasty without being too sweet. I was expecting a flavor that was a little overpowering for some reason, but it wasn't at all! If anything it was a little subdued, but that could've been due to me using too much water. Overall, I'd say this is perfect as something to hold you over until the next meal!

I haven't had these for too long. In fact, I've only logged 4 days in them as of now, but they've been great thus far! The bib straps are very comfy, and I like the pockets in the upper front part of the bib for storing my phone n stuff. The fit on these is exactly what I was looking for. It's relaxed, but not super baggy. For reference I had some Outdoor Research pants before these that were much tighter, especially through the thighs.

The only issue I've run into so far is that the inseam is a very little bit too short for me. I went with a size Small since I am about a 31 inch waist. The waist is great, but the thing is I'm generally around a 31/32 inch inseam. The 29.5 inch inseam on mine winds up being just a hair too short. Honestly this doesn't bother me at all, though. It's really kinda nice that the fabric on the legs doesn't bunch up at all. I just wanted to point it out, because if you a very long/slim person you may have trouble finding a size that has the right combination of waist/inseam measurements.

All in all I'm extremely satisfied with these, and would recommend them to anyone looking for a bib with a more relaxed fit.

I was looking for a nice, low crown hat that I could wear everyday, and I found everything I was looking for in this here hat. Great construction with a simple and clean graphic. Made of 100% organic cotton, so that's pretty neat. Not the softest material ever, but I think it'll be quite durable.

These are definitely some of the warmest tights I've ever owned. I've been wearing these under my snow pants that have essentially no insulation down to around 15 or so degrees Fahrenheit, and they are keeping me nice and toasty. One of the vents on the legs of my pants is stuck open and these are keeping me warm even so. I am generally around 31 waist and about the same for inseam. I went with a size small, regular length, and they are a great fit!

That is obviously a very subjective statement, but these really do offer the perfect amount of cushioning in my opinion. They have enough where I can tell it's there while walking around, but not so much that it makes my shoes fit too tightly. I've been wearing these mainly as everyday socks, in tennis shoes or sneakers, and they have been great!

I actually bought this as a gift for my sister. I still got to check out a bit for myself, though. The insulation was much more substantial than what I was expecting. Not to say it was super bulky or anything, I was just expecting it to be super minimal insulation. The insulation is certainly enough to keep you warm on most days without much more on underneath other than a base layer. My sister is a small in most jackets. I went with a small in this one for her, and it is a great fit. Maybe just a bit loose, but not so much that it looks bad or is even noticeable. It would allow for some layering underneath. She could throw on a puffy as a mid-lay underneath this jacket if the temperature warrants that and still be comfortable.

Overall I'd say this is a great jacket! Waterproof membrane, considerable insulation, fit that allows layering, and a fairly attractive price relative to other jackets of the same caliber.

They aren't lying when they call this thing "double thick." It is crazy heavy! Super warm for that same reason, though. I've been wearing this mainly around my apartment, and just keeping the thermostat down low. It's super nice for lounging around in cooler temps. It is also nice if you're going to be outside for extended amounts of time. It isn't something that you are going to keep on if you go inside a heated building even for just a little while. Overall I'd say it's great, though!

I got these more as an everyday sock, and they are great! They are pretty minimal padding, so not like it feels weird with tennis shoes on or anything. But it is still enough to make them just that much more comfortable. They really are doing a great job of hiding odor as well. I've worn these a couple days in a row, and you'd really have a hard time telling. There is a lot of hype around these socks and it is all for good reason!

This shirt really looks great. I got the Mossy color, and it turned out to be more green looking in person than what the pictures led me to believe. I was pleasantly surprised by this, because it actually looked better in person, in my opinion. It's a super light flannel, so it would be comfortable on most days. It isn't going to be great for cold days when you need something to help retain heat, though.

This runs rather large. I'm between a small and a medium in most button ups, and I can get away with a medium that maybe fits a bit looser in most cases. I got a medium in this, and it was way too big. That's the only reason I'm returning this. It was great otherwise!

I went with these because I've heard only good things about Darn Tough, and they certainly met my expectations! I've been wearing these mainly on colder days, and they keep my toes toasty all day. My boots don't have the best insulation, but these socks more than make up for that. They are definitely the best mid-weight sock I own. On top of all of that they look great too! That's obviously not quite as big of a deal as how they perform, but it is a nice added bonus. They also seem to fit very true to size. I generally wear an 11, occasionally an 11.5, and the larges fit me great!

These are crazy comfy! I've used them a few times already this season. They offer the perfect amount of padding for me. They aren't super warm and neither are my boots, so I've just been using them on moderately cold days. I have a thicker pair of Darn Tough's for those frigid days. That being said, these have been great the majority of the time!

Awesome. Really sums up my opinion of this board. I have always liked Never Summer's Rocker Camber profile, and this board has their Ripsaw Rocker Camber profile which is a bit more aggressive. I've been able to get a few days on this board so far this season, but it has performed great. It's been flawless charging down groomers. We had a few inches of powder the other morning, and it did fantastic there too. It is directional, but just like Gabe said below you can ride switch with no problem.

If you are looking for a directional board that can handle every inch of the mountain, this is it!

I got these at the beginning of this season to put on my all mountain board. I have logged a few days on these already and can positively say they were a great choice. I haven't ridden them back to back with any other bindings for direct comparison, but I will say that I don't find my legs and feet fatiguing nearly as much as I remember from past seasons. This is most likely due to the canted foot beds. I'm a really big fan of the toe strap as well. I prefer to wear mine over the toe of my boot, and they do a great job of conforming around the toe. It's nice that they offer you the option t wear it directly over the top of the boot as well, though.

Overall I am going to have to give these 5 stars. They do everything I expected and honestly more, because I did not expect them to keep my legs and feet from tiring so well. I really think I'm even going to pick up a second pair of these to throw on my powder board.

These are on the smaller side of the Smith I/O line. They have the I/OS that should be a bit smaller than these and are women specific. There is also the I/O7's that will be a bit larger than these and the I/OX's that will be the largest of all.

I have a bit of a smaller face, and these fit perfectly! They don't look massive on me as a lot of goggles tend to. They should match up great with any Smith helmet. They fit great with my Anon Prime as well. No gap at all. They should come with a lens for sunny conditions and one for low light, but you may want to double check the specifics on the pair you are purchasing.

For starters, this helmet looks great. I like the little bit of a brim that it has. It is right in between most helmets I think. Not too pronounced, but it's still there. I was worries about not using Anon goggles with it, but my Smith I/O's match up perfectly. Another positive is that is extremely well ventilated! On those colder days you can close off those vents very easily, though. You just slide back the little knob on top of the helmet. The Fidlock Snap is super nice as well. Its a magnetic buckle that snaps right into, so it really helps out with fastening the chinstrap when you have gloves or mittens on.

My only complaint is that I can feel a couple of the MIPS fastening point pressing into the back of my head. I can't actually feel the MIPS liner, since it is super thin. I can feel a couple of the point that fasten the liner to the helmet, though. They press against the back of my head in a couple places. I think this will get less noticeable as I wear the helmet, so I'm going to hold onto the helmet. It is not really even uncomfortable enough to warrant exchanging it. My only other complaint is that the goggle strap securing deal on the back of the helmet is just a stiff piece of plastic, not a rubber strap like I've used before. It doesn't do the job as well as a rubber strap, but really the goggle strap itself sticks to the helmet well enough to keep from worrying about them falling off the helmet. Another thing that some may see as a disadvantage is the earpads are not removable. This is not an issue for me, but I can see how that would be a nice feature for most folks.

All in all I think this will be a great helmet for this season! If I find anything that changes my mind I'll come back and leave another comment.

These really do look great! I don't wear sunglasses too often, but I've gotten quite a few compliments on these already. They feel great too! They aren't made of a lot of material, so they are pretty light. I don't really notice them once I've had them on for a bit.

The fit on these is good for people with smaller, narrower faces. I have a pretty narrow face. I do think I could use a frame just a bit smaller than these, but they are by no means too big. Just like Kayla said, you could go with the Remmy 52's if you have a larger face or want something that looks more over-sized.

Because that's what everybody will be doing to you when you're sporting these puppies.

Probably not really, but they do look great! I see a lot of people complaining that the lenses tend to crack on the corners where you lock in the frame. I've been using mine for 5 or so months, and they have not yet started doing this. I can see how the lenses could be a bit weak there, though.

Switching out lenses is a breeze! Mine came with 2 lenses, one for sunny conditions and one for low light conditions. The nose piece is also adjustable, so it should fit comfortably no matter what! I have a smaller, narrower face and these fit great! We also have the Arena Max if you have a larger face and think you would benefit from the larger lens.

I can't really tell if the Chromapop technology makes too much difference, but I would probably still splurge for it. I imagine I'd miss it if I went back to some standard lenses.

I don't really have any complaints what so ever. These perform awesome, and I tend not to even notice them after I put them on!

I bought this for mountain bike night riding, and it has been performing great! I don't night ride too often, so I've only used it a handful of times thus far. I can't speak too much on the long term longevity, but on the 5 or so rides I've used it, it has performed beautifully! I wasn't doing crazy long rides, but it lasted the whole hour and a half ride without dimming while I was using it on the "blast" setting.

I do have a co-worker that has been using these for a while, and the battery life has diminished quite a bit over the couple years that she has had her's. I am hoping that is not the case with all, but only time will tell.

That being said, it is really competitively priced relative to other 1500 lumen lights. (Full disclosure: I have read some tests saying it doesn't really put out 1500 even at full blast.) It is a great pick if you need something quickly at a relatively low price and are not too awefully concerned about the longevity!

These really are gr8 though. I am still breaking them in. They aren't necessarily uncomfortable at the moment, but I would like for them to be a bit more comfy and expect that to happen as I wear them more. I went with the Pat Moore's in a size 11. (Same size as I wear in regular vans.) They fit great, and I have been getting a ton of compliments on them! They have a bit of a fleece lining which has been keeping my dogs toasty. I can't speak too much just yet on how they perform in snow. They are "weather resistant." I would expect them to be fine in light snow, but probably not great for trudging through feet of powder. For an everyday winter shoe these are great!
