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

These shorts are so light, you'll wonder if you forgot to put your pants on! (a big plus in my book) They have a super flattering flat front and elastic that comfortably keep them up in the back.
My two issues were these:
- They are short! A 3.5in inseam is just not in my comfort range.
- The leg holes seem really wide. Now, they may not flare as much once you've washed them and worn them more, but it just didn't work for me.

Sizing -
I usually wear a 14, but I was right in between L and XL in these.

I absolutely adore this skort! Here are some of the highlights.
- Pockets! There are two actually functional pockets
- The waistband is made of a really nice, wide, elastic. This means that it won't roll over if you bend over or if you sit down. It also doesn't give you any kind of an awkward muffin top.
- The shorts are nice and silky inside.
- The external fabric is smooth and won't snag on desks or twigs.

I'm generally a size 14, and I'm a bit in between L and an XL. I went with the XL because I liked the extra length and felt like I could put more in my pockets without being obvious...

I love this shirt! I bought the Olive color and have been so happy with the light, airy fabric. I appreciate how the shirt is longer in the back, eliminating the dreaded plumbers crack, though the v neck does give me a bit more cleavage than I'm used to.

Great for car campers who want to head into the backcountry as well, the full-featured Marmot Trestles 15 sleeping bag is a reliable synthetic bag that insulates even in cool, damp conditions.

Airy and Grippy!
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have only put about 15 miles on these, but they still look and feel brand new. I really enjoy how grippy the soles are and the easy lace system. This is the fist time I've used this lace system and was surprised at how well they fit!
I have very warm feet on 90 degree days, and I really appreciate that are have an airy, breathable feel to them. My feet were comfy and cool even in heat and sun.
I am 7.5 - 8 with a wider foot, and I went with an 8.5 in this shoe. It has a fairly roomy toe box and my heels did not move at all. The back of the shoe does go a bit high on my achilles for my taste, and they did get a bit sore a few miles in.
I would recommend these to trail runners with average to slightly wide feet who are looking for a really good grip on rocks and uneven surfaces.

I was provided with a free pair of these shoes in exchange for an honest review.

They should make an adult version
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large

I have the 12-18 mo girl version of this suit and loved it so much that I just bought this one (the 24 mo boy version) for next year. This runs large and my child doesn't grow that quickly, so I know it will fit her next year. Every time I put my toddler in this, people constantly come up and tell me three things:
1. how adorable my child is (obviously)
2. how warm my adorable child looks
3. how they wish they had a puff suit like this in their size (probably hoping to be as adorable as my child)
We live in a land where -16 is a considered a warm day. This snowsuit keeps my toddler and baby warm and snuggly (we have a separate suit for the baby, I don't try to fit them both in the same one). It washes well and dries quickly. I can personally attest to being able to dry it with a hand dryer in less than 20 minutes after the top half took a dip in the toilet (I am now starting to understand why one piece suits might not be ideal for a potty training toddler. Lesson learned).

We love these mittens so much that we have every size 0-5T. You can throw them in the washing machine as often as you like and never have to worry about the material breaking down. The velcro makes it a convenient to put these mittens back on after your toddler decides that it's a fun game to take them off every 2 seconds. They are warm enough to defrost said toddler's hands after taking off the mittens every 2 seconds in -16 degree temperatures. They're an all around winner.
