I will admit, when I first tried these on, I worried that they might slide down too much (as other mentioned in their reviews, and my roommate said hers were sliding off her butt), and I was somehow hoping they would be so much more soft. Negative first impressions aside, I kept them because I loved the color, and I was hoping for a great experience with a good base layer. I'm glad I did.

My friend and I just returned from a week in Iceland, where I wore this base layer almost every day. It was perfect! Kept me warm, didn't stink (didn't launder them for over a week), and I did not have a single problem with them sliding down. Perhaps that's because this is a base layer, that is meant to have something on top (which might help keep it in place?). I was glad to have the low waist, so there wasn't bulk around the waist, and I don't recall any thoughts of "my pants are sliding down." Another reviewer mentioned loose legs... definitely not a problem for those of us with thicker/athletic (or not)/muscular legs.
I highly recommend these.

I bought this for my friend, because he loves fun socks, as do I. If this were a woman's sock, I would've bought it for myself.
He said they look and feel great, keep your feet warm, and he would recommend them to a friend... especially if they love sock monkeys. Sounds pretty good. :)

It might seem silly I'm writing a review for a boot I returned, but I wish I still had it. I got the boot, felt like Christmas morning as I unwrapped it and put in on... but then the sadness when I realized I bought the UK8, and not the US8. :'( Sad day. The boot seemed great though, and I would highly recommend it to others (after all the research I did). Looked and felt great, and I can only assume it functions great as well.

Size Purchased: 8.5

I did some research before buying a boot, because I had upcoming backpacking and hiking trips, and decided upon Lowa because of their long history in boots, and other reviews. I figured Lowa must know what they're doing, and other reviews indicated this boot only really required one wear to be broken in.

I normally wear an 8 in a shoe and bought an 8.5 in this boot (I had heard it's better to have space so your toes don't hit the front when going downhill). I definitely haven't had toes hitting the front, haven't gotten any blisters, but I also wonder if it would be possible/better to have a smaller boot so I don't have to have super thick socks all the time.

I wore these boots on a short hike to break them in... they felt good. Then I took them to Iceland for 9 days of hiking and exploring... they were great. We hiked every day, did some city seeing, went by waterfalls, walked in streams, mud, and in rain/snow/waterfall mist (over an hour)... thought they were completely soaked, but my feet were dry, and the boots dried quickly. My recommendation would be get your true size, and a half size up, and see which is best.

PROS:
Comfortable, spacious, looks great, very waterproof, no blisters, great grip, lightweight

CONS:
Laces were so long (kind of annoying that they kept getting tangled in themselves while trying to lace up through all those hooks, and there was plenty extra), perhaps a little too spacious (maybe I should've gotten a smaller size?), feels like I might need another sole for better cushion/support (can't really explain why, but it just feels that way)

If this sock were in my size, I would have it myself, but since they didn't, and the color is one my friend loves, I bought it for her. She wore them and said they looked great, felt great, and even got compliments on them. I asked how they felt, and she said they were a little tight, but I think that's because it's a compression sock, and it's supposed to be that way. :) I assume that means this sock is actually compressing, as it is supposed to. Wish they had it in my size!

This visor fits perfectly, and is just what's needed for a little tennis, run, or any other activity in the sun. Hats don't really work with my super thick hair, so this visor is just what I needed. Still a little stiff, but I'm sure the form-keeping of it will be appreciated in a breeze.
I bought the white in a L/XL, and it's perfect!

Loved everything from the packaging, to the cool tech circles on the underside of the fabric...
I haven't had the chance to truly use this shirt in really hot weather (where I was hoping to really put it to the test), but it definitely helped me feel cool during an indoor workout. Love the look, feel, and function of this shirt!
