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

Bought these as a gift and his response was: The Banyans Polarized Sunglasses are perfect if you are looking for a light weight, clear pair of sunglasses. The transition from glasses to no glasses on a sunny day is hardly noticeable. I will definitely buy another pair of these when I am due again.

Fit: True to size

Bought these as a gift and this was his response: I spend 8 hours a day in a manufacturing facility, on a concrete surface. When I searched for recommended shoes in order to protect my feet and knees, these are what came up, the Austin Shoes. I have now had them for almost 2 months, wearing them daily, Monday- Friday and they are exactly what I needed. The color selection meshes well with dress slacks. The durability is also very strong, they do not look like 2-month old shoes, especially with the wear they have been given. I will buy again when I have officially worn out my first pair.

Fit: Runs large

Size Purchased: Medium

This is a very high quality shirt that I do not have to worry about wrinkinling in the wash like some other short sleeve button ups. I usually wear a Large at 6ft 185 lbs, but like all other Marmot tops they are a bit baggy.

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

I bought these for riding and was hoping for a low profile knee pad that worked well on the climb. I used them once doing a down hill flow and jump course in Snowmass. Ended up falling and getting thrashed breaking my hand. I had scrapes and punctures from rocks all over my body....except for my knees. Even though my bike season is over, my knees and legs are in good shape. Based on their performance on the downhill, I am confident that these will perform admirably on the uphill too.

We have had a great experience with this for our dog. She does not seem uncomfortable with the life vest on and allows us to feel at ease with her swimming anywhere. Loved having this for our dog this summer to go paddle boarding with us.

Maui Jim’s Ho’okipa are the best sunglasses period. The polarized lenses provide complete eye coverage, even for the largest of eye-sockets like mine, brightening up an scenery. They are light enough for casual wear and tough enough for great for all outdoor activities (running, biking, skiing, golfing, etc.). If and when this pair gets lost or broken, I’m buying another pair just like this.

This is the best cooler for hauling to that car camping site just a bit down a trail. The one downside of camping is usually lugging all the beer and goodies out to the site, but this cooler makes it incredibly easy. The insulation is good enough to keep the beer and food cold without weighing you down with tons of ice. It also works great when going to the beach and you want to bring some your refreshments. Highly recommend
