Love is a pretty strong word, but these sandals are deserving of it. I love the way they fit and the way they make me feel (at the risk of sounding ridiculous, they make me feel a little classy and a little more refined than I really am). Hah! Though this is the first set of OluKai sandals I have ever owned, I am already certain I will purchase/own several pairs of OluKais over the course of my life. 5 stars, for sure.

Extremely light weight. Very comfortable. Waterproof, as stated. Pretty darn fashionable (so I think, at least). My only complaint would be in reference to having chunked off a little bit of sole on each boot (on the toe) on the account of having stubbed my toes on the ground too many times, but that's more of a personal problem. 5 starts, for sure.

What's not to like? It's got a very basic and low-profile design. It's bright enough to serve it's intended function. It's comfortable enough that I've forgotten I'm even wearing it on several occasions (only to be teased for wearing a headlamp in broad daylight in the middle of the afternoon... hah!). And at $40 it's a great value! 5 stars, for sure.

This shirt looks really nice, but it's just too big (especially in length) for me to be able to wear it. I like wearing shirts a little large, which is why I typically wear extra-larges, but this particular shirt is just too big for me.

These sunglasses are simply great. As someone who spends a lot of time on the water (fishing), I've come to absolutely love these glasses and the Maui Jim brand as a whole. The glass lenses are great, although heavy by comparison to traditional plastic lenses. Something to be mindful of if you intend to spend more or less all day wearing a set of glasses like I do while on the water.

I was looking for a very basic and lightweight rain shell to replace an older rain jacket (a jacket that I had run into the ground, so to speak, after years fishing and abrasive outside activity) and this jacket is just that; very basic in design, extremely lightweight yet seemingly pretty darn rugged. Couldn't be happier with this purchase!

This jacket is incredibly lightweight. And comfy. And warm for what it is. And based upon the several compliments from family, friends and co-workers on this thing, it's apparently pretty stylish as well! Couldn't be happier with this purchase.

In the little bit of time that I have owned this headlamp, I have already managed to use and rely upon this heavily for all sorts of different things. Prepping for fishing in the early morning. Razor clamming on the beach at night. Splitting wood and doing outside stuff in the dark. Wrenching under the truck. Wrenching under the car. Regardless of the application, this thing produces just the right amount of light and fits comfortably and is dead-simple to operate. The 3-AAA batteries seem to last for an impressive amount of time on either the bright or ultra-bright setting(s) and they pretty much last forever on the dim/low setting.

As of this time, I have zero recommendations for ways in which this product could be improved and I would absolutely recommend this to anyone in need of a good, all-purpose headlamp.

Fit: True to size

As a person just getting back into climbing a bit (indoor bouldering, rather), I was looking for a decent set of entry-level shoes which would serve a sort of "all around" purpose and provide a nice compromise/balance of comfort and function. I am happy to report that these shoes have provided just that! Brand new, these shoes were nearly as comfortable as the old, broken-in pair that I used to wear (and had totally worn out) from when I had previously been into climbing, and the grip/compound of the rubber on these seems just about right per what I had wanted and expected.

While I can't speak to the durability of these shoes just yet, I can say that the sizing seems fairly true to size (as I generally wear a 10.5 or 11 in street shoes and I purchased these in a size 10 and they fit perfectly).

That all said, I would absolutely recommend these to any beginning or novice climber looking for a great bang-for-the-buck, all-around shoe.

Terrific rain coat.
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large

This jacket is just great! A durable and well-constructed rubber rain coat (matched with some rubber rain bibs and knee boots) is the only way to comfortably and confidently endure hours and even days at a time of pouring down rain... and that is exactly what this is; durable, well-constructed, comfortable and "confidence inspiring" for those unrelenting days.

The double layer snap closure system is solid and effective and the neoprene cuffs are a really nice feature/touch.

Regarding size, this jacket (like the rest of Carhartt's rain gear, it seems) runs quite large. At 5'10" and 175lbs, I purchased a size Medium in this jacket and it fits perfectly (allows for tons of base layers to be worn comfortably underneath if needed, yet its not so big or so roomy that it is obnoxious or cumbersome in any way).

Great bibs.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

These Carhartt rubber rain bibs are a great value. Quality construction and a nice material (and material thickness, for that matter) translate into a bib that is not only perfectly waterproof, but also very comfortable and nonrestrictive in terms of movement and wear. If durable and truly waterproof gear is what you're after, rubber is the only way to go!

Regarding sizing, I am 5'10", about 175lbs and I typically wear a size 33-34 pant. I purchased these bibs in a size Medium and the fit is perfect. A large set of these bibs would have been huge, I have to believe.
