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

This is not a true "Trucker" hat. I have a small head and this fits really well. I would compare the fit to a Patagonia LoPro. Fits me, so that's all I care about. I did use my pocket knife to help age the mesh by my ears as it was really stiff. I go over the mesh at the base of the cap really lightly with the blade to kind of sand off the rough edges. I did the same thing to my LoPro, it makes it feel like an old hat without the pain to break it in. Stoked to have a mesh back again.

I'm not sure why others had a problem with sizing, mine fits perfect. As soon as I got it, I tried it on, wife approved, so I washed it and wore it to work. The only thing I don't like is the limited motion. I have grown very accustomed to clothing that moves with me and has a bit of stretch. This shirt does not. It looks great though, so I will keep it. I have a slender build, and this will be a great shirt to wear in almost any setting. I do have my CCW permit and the waist area provides a touch a bagginess to aid in concealment. I paired it with Prana Zion pants and was very comfortable all day with a G19.

Very comfortable. I work in a very hot mill, these are a game changer. Need more. I use these or Zion now. These breath much better than Kuhl Renegade.

Just got my 2nd pair and they feel exactly the same in size. I hope this style never changes!

I should have bought these a long time ago. Good time to buy with the sale going on, don't miss out!!

I would compare theses to Kuhl renegades, but with a tougher feeling material without the added weight. I do miss my cell phone pocket though.

The fit is spot on for me, not baggy but not skinny jeans either. I did go with a 34 and usually wear 33. The built in belt gives options as far as comfort. I do have my CCW permit and Appendix carry a G19 with a Vanguard holster, the built in buckle is right where it clips, so I have to move it over a tad. My Shield 9mm at 4:00 IWB disappears. I like the option of using my CCW belt or not, as I do not always carry.

I'm really thinking about donating all my jeans: Levi's, Cinch, Carhartt...these are good, but nowhere near the comfort.

I also have the Zion shorts in 10", will go 12" next time.

I wear a large in most brands, I dont like baggy shirts, but not hipster tight either. I like a clean athletic fit. This shirt is small for a large, sleeves hit about mid bicep and the shoulders feel tight. Wish I would have gotten XL.

The shirt looks great though and looks like it should last. I'll gift it and try again.

I hopped on the Darn Tough train about 3 months ago. Used all the major brands before trying these. Bad move...Should'a saved my coins and bought these sooner, Darn Tough is an awesome sock!

I now have 4 pair total (no shows, light hiker and 2 no cushion crew) All work great.

I prefer the crew cut as I wear 6" work boots daily, yet I have popeye sized calves that push any other sock down. The crew's stop right under your calf and stay there all day, no matter what you do.

I wear 10.5W boots and the LARGE fits perfect.

I will be getting more colors to add to my collection.

Let me start by saying that the stitching and overall quality is awesome.
I have a 22 1/2 noggin and do have trouble finding a hat that fits without looking like a billboard. This one is SO close!! If I wear it with the bill flat it doesn't hit my ears. But, I like a slight round bill, and tend to wear my hat like a ball player (I played center field and used the bill to block the sun) I tried washing it to loosen up the mesh, but it still bothers my ears. Might give it away as a gift to a friend. This hat should be perfect for most people looking for a "trucker" hat but not the old school style you see in gas stations.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I read and re-read all the reviews from backcountry, MTBR, Pinkbike, Dirt, Amazon...Everything about it, fits what I wanted. I really wanted to use this lid.

I measure right at 56mm, which according to Giro, stats I am Medium. I ordered one up and tracked it all the way to my doorstep. I was so stoked to open it up and get riding! To my dismay, it felt a bit loose no matter how much I tinkered with it. I knew without a doubt that would not cut it out on a trail.

backcountry was awesome in getting the thing sent back and thus, I ordered a Small.

Again, I could not wait to get it out and ride!

Nevertheless...the Small sat way to high on my head and I felt to much pressure on my temples. So, I had to send this one back too.

Bummer for me, I really wanted to use this helmet. Hope the Troy Lee A-1 fits better. I had to give it 3 stars based just on the fitment. I'm sure I could have made the Medium work, but I did not want to chance it with my brain inside.

These feel awesome to ride in. I wear a 33-34 in most everything and the 34 are just right. They do have a bit of a tubular cut, but are still great to ride in.

I'm also an avid golfer, so I'm used to lighter and cool material. These move with you as you ride, I love that.
