Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Size Purchased: 8

I wanted a warm sheepskin slipper and these do the job. They are really thick, high quality and keep my feet warm but my feet never get sweaty in them either. They make me want to never leave the house and I have worn them out of the house more than I should, but it is good they have a decent sole on them also. They fit true to size. They felt snug at first in the toe box but stretched out. My heal does lift out of them but that's ok, they are slippers, I am not going to run a marathon in them.

I'm always searching for great casual merino wool base layers that can work for skiing and work and this is a great piece. It is on the lighter side as far as the fabric is concerned and only has 3/4 length sleeves, has a looser, less fitted shape. The benefit of that is I will actually wear it in the summer in the evenings. I got a medium but probably should have got a small but I am keeping it.

I bought these mostly because I loved the black and white stripes. I was expecting a cotton like fabric, they are more like a thick stretchy tight fabric with texture. They are comfortable but can snag. I wear them as a base layer for skiing or on their own. They are also fine to wear all seasons.

I got a medium and probably should have got a small, because it is wool it does not have a lot of stretch so it is not very fitted in this size for me. Light enough to wear year round.

I got a size 2 for my 2 yr old last year and it is the most worn shirt he has in the winter. He still wears it and is close to 3 but getting on the small side. Really hard to come by base layers for kids that are not cotton and especially merino wool. Nice and fitted. Higher quality than most kids clothes. Highly recommend! I will be buying more.

I got the 'cherry pop.' Useful as you can wear it to the restaurant and swim in it without changing and vice versa! It is short! even for me at 5'5'' but with the built in swim bottoms it makes it OK. Can also pass as just a skirt, maybe even for running. Feels funny when the skirt floats up in the water but a minor detail!

I purchased this before my trip to Maui in the pink. It was a great coverup for the beach. Because it is mesh it does not show big wet spots if you put it over a wet swimsuit and also allows your suit underneath to get dry. Could also look cute layered with another dress under.

I ordered a small and have plenty of room in it. Flattering seams, soft on the inside and great to have pockets. A great length above the knee, especially for me being just under 5'5''. Fabric is very soft on the inside. I ordered red, will likely order another color also as that is how much I like this dress. Wish there were more color options!

I got these in the sunflower and I love the color, fit and stretch to these pants. Very comfortable for travel and all seasons. The fabric is soft and has a good amount of stretch. I have short legs about 27 inseam and they fit great, so they maybe a bit short for those with long legs. I got a size 2 and I'm 5'5'' 120 so I'd say the sizes fit a bit big. The sunflower color do not have the pocket flaps on the front which is too bad, front pockets gape open most of the time, that is my only complaint. I want to order these in other colors as well as I wear them a lot.

I was looking for a merino wool base layer that I could also get away with wearing out to dinner, this top works for both. I like the wider neck and cut of the top. I got the black in medium, like most icebreaker tops I would say it runs small as I am often a small. I have no issues with the wool itching. I want to order the other colors!

Good quality and fitting wetsuit

Fit: Runs large

I have raced in this wetsuit for the past 4 seasons. The reasons I like it are: 1) It is durable, even though the neoprene is very soft and flexible it does not tear easily like other brands I have tried and I give it a fair amount of abuse getting in and out of it quickly. 2) Mobility in the shoulders. I do not swim a lot in my wetsuit besides races so it's good to have a lot of flexibility in the shoulders 3) Overall fit, I am 5'5'' 116 athletic build and it fits me great, unlike a lot of women's suits that seem to be pair shaped, this one is good for athletes/swimmers. I find it fits a bit big compared to charts, I was able to still wear a small when I weighed 125-130lbs.

Cup and band sizes make a lot of sense when it comes to sports bras. The adjustable straps are also very helpful and add to a better fit and support, it also helps a lot if you are nursing (as does the extra support.) This is the most comfortable out of the Moving Comfort sports bras, but if you need maximum support go for a Juno. I wore this when I was DD cup, now back down to a C but still need good support.

This is a great product! I use mine everyday and has been essential for getting back in shape post baby. High quality, well designed, works well in all seasons, and intuitive and quick to switch from different modes (running, ski, bike, stroller.) It also allows us to get out and do active things as a family rather than take turns which is really important. Sure it's more work to pull or push a Chariot but it's a killer workout that will get you in shape.

Love the meal bars, I live off of them. Chocolate Coconut is my favorite but chocolate mint is also very tasty. Really like the fact they are whole grains/seeds and all organic. They are also very filling and give me the satisfaction of real food.

After a hard/long session or race drinking a recovery drink with protein after helps a lot, GU Brew is also really convenient and fast, especially with the individual packs. I really like the taste of the chocolate and strawberry recovery drinks, especially compared to other brands I have tried. I also put them in a blender w ice and fresh strawberries (for the strawberry watermelon.) I also drank a lot of these when I was nursing and training as I seemed to need a lot of extra fluids and protein.

I have a long torso and I love the fit of this suit. I have swam in it 2-3 times a week for over a year and it has shown no signs of wear of stretch so the fabric is very durable. I love the colors and the wide straps which are unusual for a training swimsuit but provide a more comfortable fit. I have received a lot of complements on this suit. I am 5'5'' athletic build and 120lbs and wear a size 30. Great to have more options out there for lap swimming!

I have put a lot of miles on my Sense Pros this winter and has been a great shoe for running on both road and trail. It has been one of my most popular training shoes because of it's versatility. Most of the running has been on winter roads and the tread has held up well. The shoe takes a lot less time to break in than the Sense Mantras and although the mid-sole is still fairly firm it feels more flexible than the Mantras also. What I like most about the Sense series is the overall fit of the shoe, they fit snug but not to restrictive on the toes and nice and tight on the heal so your foot doesn't slide forward. I would say overall it's a narrower fit than the X-Screams but more room in the toebox than the SpeedCross. I also like the more breathable upper. It has less drop (6mm) than some traditional running shoes but more than the Sense Ultras, less drop can help you run more on your forefoot. I recently ran a road half marathon in this shoe and set a 3 minute PR. I wear a full size down in this shoe.
