Sassy shades!

Was looking for a new pair of cycling shades, and landed on these for the wrap and frame size. I didn’t want something to Tron-esque but something still with that oversized lens look everyone’s rockin. These are incredibly light and comfortable for long rides, with a comfortable grippy nose piece that keeps them in place on a choppy decent. I went with the blue pair, and love the color. The subtle grey mirrored lens it comes with is perfect for all conditions. Dark enough for bright days but light enough for rides through wooded areas. They do sit on the face and will steam up when I stop pedaling, but I haven’t had any problems while riding. Smith also packaged these in a really nice hard case with extra nose piece and a rose lens. Would definitely recommend!

Love these shoes.

I was desperately due for an upgrade. I landed on this model for the tech upgrades that make for a more comfortable experience, and that I would learn to appreciate as I ride more - Carbon sole, tech lace. Happy with the combo of the BOA and tech lace, as it allows for good circulation in the toes and a snug fit around the ankle. I went with the white, ideal for summer, and mesh keeps the foot a little cooler.

Noticed a bit of a pinch where the tongue hits the front of my ankle, but as I've worn the shoe more and more, it's breaking in.

Cycling shoes are tough to fit. I've found the higher end, euro models fit a narrower foot (plus for me), but the length was tough to get right. Based on the size chart, I'd say these run around a size small. I purchased a 42 which equates to a women's 10 in their chart, but I wear a 9.5 in most other shoes. In the 42, the length is still a bit short, but laced up with my heel locked in, comfortable. There's a nice amount of volume and width in the toe box - great if you experience a little swelling during your rides.

All in all, stoked on the shoe, Giro makes a beautiful product!

Versatile Baby Carry!

Picked this up so I could get outside with our little one right away. It’s designed with more carry options than most carriers on the market, and rather than requiring a specific newborn insert, a rolled blanket can be used to support their bum, getting baby into the right/safe position. My husband’s used it for simple bring baby along while working around the house, and it’s worked beautifully for my first walks and hikes postpartum. Baby is 6 weeks and does just fine, though Lille’s site says day 1 is okay too, just be aware of the weight requirements. I went with the Mist color, it’s as pictured, a subtle silvery grey, and decided on the mesh version to keep baby cool on hot days, and it’s as breathable as expected while still feeling substantial. Also, the carrying system is far more comfortable than I imagined! I would definitely call this a baby necessity!

I haven't carried a lunch box since, high school, maybe, but even then it was a brown bag. I forgot how totally awesome and useful a small, insulated soft cooler is for active weekend adventures and day to day keeping things cool. It's been super useful for packing a few sandos and brewdogs on the weekend, whether we're hitting the river or trail. Also useful for grocery shopping on a lunch break and keeping a few things cool until I get home in the evening. I love the little add on Koozie, and adjustable shoulder strap. Dakine nailed it!

I purchased the CycleOps Fluid 2 Trainer with Sensor earlier this season and found that riding just a couple of hours a week was wearing out my road tire quickly. Threw the Vittoria on over the weekend and it's not only saving my road tire from a deteriorating, but has made for a much smoother and quieter ride. Highly recommend going with this training tire from the start if you plan to ride regularly.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I live here in Utah and our air quality takes a turn for the worst in the winter. I'm not really a gym goer. So after some deep research, borrowing of a friend's trainer and lots of convincing testimony, I broke down at purchased my very own. I can't lie. I love it. I love riding my bike(s) when it is nice out, so hopping on the training for a quick ride in the morning is no big deal. I haven't yet connected to Zwift, or other available apps. BUT I EASILY set up and connected the cadence reader to my Garmin Vivo Active. (On you're watch you'll go to set up and "add apps".) Noise was big factor for me, because I fully planned on vegging out and watching movies, and this trainer s about as quiet as it gets. I have noticed my tire wearing down, so I'd recommend a proper training tire if you plan to ride often. My road tires need to be replace so I'll probably just wear them out this season. Set up was easy. It's very stable, feels solid standing and pedaling. And the trainer comes with a plastic cupped stabilizer for the front wheel. Overall, love it. CycleOps makes a really nice product.

I really dig this top, I have since I first purchased one in 2016. And that same one I purchased then, has worn supremely well and still looks great. I just purchased the fawn heather for a warm, winter neutral layer and it's beautiful. I'd recommend a neutral or nude colored bra, as it's a touch thin. Agree with the reviewer below, fits just as the other one I purchased a couple of years ago. Runs a bit large and I haven't found them to shrink in wash, I generally hang dry to preserve the quality.

Just purchased this crew and it is exactly as pictured. I went with Oatmeal for an everyday winter neutral. The color is just as described, it's plain Oatmeal, not overly warm or pinkish, very neutral. The cut is also as shown, cropped, cute with high waisted jeans, and the sleeves are on the longer side. I'm 5' 8" and typically order mediums but wanted something a bit roomier so sized up. It's a bigger, boxier look but gained a bit of extra length. Great casual piece, love sporting the goat, definitely a lesser known logo out there.

I was routinely envious of travelers with the four-way spinning carry-ons. They made it look so easy on planes, composed and collected moving on foot through the Airport, I just had to give it a try. Love this piece for it's four-way spin, but infinitely more impressed by the detail and thoughtfulness of design.

There's a slim/hidden zipper pocket on the very front, useful for stashing a cord or snack last minute. A second complete with an ultra featured laptop sleeve that can be removed and added to a different pack (not shown in photos). The main clam shell has a nice about of mesh storage/organization for dirty clothes, shoes or dopp kit, and more simplistic half w/ elastic straps to secure clothes. All around the right amount of organization. The overall silhouette is slim and low profile despite being totally packed out. The cup holder is pretty convenient as well.

Agree with the reviews below. These are a knock out. The High waist is really flattering and ideal for all those yogi poses. They also stay up and in place jogging, and are just the right length. I could have pulled off a medium, but went with the large, and they work just fine. I went with the color eclipse which is exactly as pictured. These have washed up nicely, no pilling, excellent quality.

I needed a pair of quick drying, slightly rugged shorts last minute, so I picked up a couple pairs of these not knowing which size to go with. These definitely run a little slim, especially in the thigh, I found. I'm usually a 31/10, but needed to size up to the 12 . Unfortunately I do have a smaller waist so I just dealt with them riding low. There is a drawstring inside to cinch up , but who wants all that bunching. Material is awesome - 5 Stars, and I found the length just right.

Took a bunch of these on a recent trip to keep up with electrolytes and hydration while traveling. 16hrs on a plane can leave you in rough shape. It was really nice to have a little something to throw in our water. Also ended up with some mild food poisoning, and was super grateful to have these in our bag. Love that these are all natural too!

I'm all about Alo and their high-waisted pants, so I was excited to try out the 7/8 length. Unfortunately the length was not quite right for me, a little too close to Capri length. But overall, still love the Alo quality, design and brand ethos! I do find Alo runs a touch small, but found their size chart skews way large. I can pull off a Large just fine, I'm about a 41 hip, 155 and 5' 8".

It really feels so natural to wear wool undies. I'm perhaps in the complete opposite camp of the prior reviewer. I bought a pair of these forever ago and they've seriously withstood the test of time, and have been a go to garment for winter and summer adventures. I was looking for something a little more modest but still really comfortable and flattering and these are it. I think the trick is get the right size, I'm 5' 8" and closer to 155 these days, 41in hip, and size L fits great. Not too tight around the waist (these are lowrise) and flattering lines on bum, if they ride up, they're just a little cheeky and it's really not a full on wedgie. Just purchased the Velvet/Opal, and Black Stripe and they're just as pictured. Would highly recommend giving these try.

Bought these for an upcoming trip, I've yet to use them, but am pretty stoked after the initial try on. Based on a few of the reviews suggesting they ran a touch big/baggy, I went with a Medium, I'm 5'8" 150. Love the flat waist band and flattering pockets. The elastic a the cuff isn't too tight, and allows for individual styling. DIG the fabric, super soft, stretchy, breathable, yes substantial enough for hike. I went with the Forge Grey over another pair of Black pants, and LOVE them. Definitely a darker grey, graphite.
