I am infatuated with merino wool and this was a great lighter weight shirt, not a thick flannel in case that's what you're looking for. The issue I had was that the cut was attractive when standing still, but range of motion at the shoulders was atrocious. It's as if the angle at the armpits was too acute. Super constricting and I had to send it back. Probably a fine shirt for a desk job or church. I'm a regular athletic build without bulky shoulders. Probably "true to size" with the caveat mentioned above. Perhaps sizing up would help?

Does anyone know how to open the drawer?
3 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The pump works very well, but I have Enve mtn bike rims that have shorter presta stems, so there just isn't enough to bite with this attachment requiring the shrader converter and it works without any problems.

The only "problem" I have with this is that I cannot figure out how to open the drawer to the handle. It seems like it should just slide out, but I have used a lot of force and I'm sure it can't be that difficult. I'd love to store the shrader adapters, ball needles, stem valves, valve tool, etc. in there, but I can't get it open! That's why the 4 stars...

UPDATE: I suppose I should've just Googled it from the beginning, but apparently the pump I received does NOT have drawers in the handle! The picture BC shows is the pump I received and the picture attached is from Google images. No drawers!

Fits normally in the chest and torso, but a little shorter than a typical hoodie and worried that it might shrink over time. I still like the Henley look though.

Size Purchased: LARGE

I purchased this and an ice breaker hooded one-piece and I like a lot about this Ninja suit, but the waistline zipper is just too low. I like the material better (at least they try to sell it as better - see description above) and it certainly feels softer than traditional merino wool. I like the hood better - it has an extra panel on each side for better fit and the piping around the rim of the hood is better. The sleeve cuffs are better than Ice Breaker's - they are elastic and won't stretch out over time.

If the 350 degree zipper was higher so it was actually around my waist, I would have gone with this for sure, but even sitting in it several times in my living room, I could tell that chairlifts and sitting around a fire would bother just enough that it wasn't unnoticeable. Bottom line: I went with Ice Breaker's version.

These are lightweight but durable and dry very quickly when they get wet. The relaxed fit is perfect for most activities and the rise is perfect without the crotch being too low or too snug. Highly recommend these pants!

I have these and another pair of Icebreaker pants. I typically wear a 36 with room for a few fingers and compared to other 36 inch pants (multiple brands and styles), these are slightly larger. That is true for both Icebreaker pants I own and consistent with other reviews. If you're in between sizes, size down.

Size Purchased: 47.5

I love these shoes. I have the older model. 47.5 is the largest I can find anywhere, but it's just a bit tight with anything but the thinnest socks on. For reference, I wear 12.5 in Asics and 13 in Nike and the 47.5 is a bit tight comparatively. Gore-Tex makes these a great everyday shoe for the winter just running errands in sloppy parking lots, back and forth to the ski hill, picking up the dog poo, or actually going for a run on the trails, but winter also calls for slightly thicker socks, so beware if you have larger feet.

Also, the Ultra Raptor GTX feels a little thicker and slightly stiffer in the body compared to these. Seems like the Ultra Raptor GTX would be a little warmer (maybe too warm for everyday hot summer use).

I am 6'2" and 205 lbs. I wear 36 pants and the size Large are perfect! The adjustable velcro is fantastic and the length is perfect, as well. If I have to be picky about anything, it's that the back pockets are lower than normal pants typically are. Even though they're cotton, they're soft and still feel sturdy.

Great feeling jacket with soft fabric lining around the sleeve cuffs, but the Large was just a little long in the sleeves so that they bunched up and the body was a little bigger than I like my insulating layers, particularly for layering. I can't say if it is better than a medium since I didn't try a medium, but it seems to run large.

***Makes me choose a rating, but I never actually used it. First impression is good.

I was disappointed today when I tried to use this for the first time as my valve stems are only about 1 cm from the rims and the CO2 adapter needs just a bit more length to be buried in the device and make a good seal. Luckily, I was in my garage and not out on some trail! I will now be checking that stuff like this works before relying on it at all! Also, as mentioned in another review, since it didn't seal well, it was spraying compressed CO2 all over and was freezing cold (thin layer of ice on metal cartridge is a bad combo) - beware.

The description is slim fit and in case you haven't worn "BodyFit" or Anatomica, you should know that it is body-fitting tight. I ordered a size up since I want to wear it more casually, as well. I wear a LARGE in Tech T Lite and other casual Icebreaker shirts, but I ordered an XL in this shirt and it fits great. If you want it primarily for working out or layering in the cold, order your normal size.

Check out the size chart. I didn't. Don't ask why not. One size = 2-5.5 for kids. You probably already knew that. 3 boys. Biggest feet right now are children's 13. It'll be a few years, but they're pretty dec socks, so we'll hang on to them. Just FYI about the sizing.

Fit: True to size

Looks like Lake's quality assurance department forgot to put the final stamp of approval on the shoes I received. The closure system was not sewn in to the leather and when I tried them on for the first time, the mechanism just pulled out. I don't know how to attach a second photo to this review, but the other shoe is fine, so it's definitely a flaw. Otherwise, the fit is good.

Fit: Runs small

Agree with Jason, except the "true to size" bit - for me, anyway. I wear an Asics 12.5 and 13 in Brooks, Nike, and most other things. the 48, which the sizing chart says is a 14, is too tight. I was a footballer and like the snug fit of a shoe, and this shoe has an awesome toe box (closer to the Bont-style, or Keen/Chaco), but just too short. You can see the non-pointy toe box well on the picture from straight above it.

ALSO, a huge PLUS... the inside of the heal is a special fabric that is smooth going in and rough coming out. It holds the heal so well. And there are little grippy rubber things that I'm sure will wear off within the first year, but the heal-hold is amazing! I so wish they fit...

Caveat: Difficult to really rate a product without actually using it, so take the stars for what that's worth. Appears to be made well and the toe-box, upper, outsole, and heal-hold would sell this to me, for sure.
