Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love trucker hats, especially the type that are flexfit without a snapback. I also suffer from a HUGE MELON and typically wear a 7 5/8-8 depending on the manufacturer. Typically hats are not big enough and are too shallow for my noggin, this one fits, and because it is a trucker hat it breathes! One issue I have with the hat is that the headband liner in this hat is not soft and has a sort of stitching going through it - after extended wear it really starts to hurt my forehead and when I take the hat off I am left with this lovely imprint of that liner on my forehead for hours. This may not be the case with all of you who dont have to use the 'flex' part of the hat, but I do and until a hat really breaks in I deal with issues such as this. Either way - I do like that hat, not enough that I want to give it higher than 3 stars though.

Great shoes. These were an alternative purchase to the Etnie shoes I bought that just wouldn't fit the width of my feet. Glad I did - these fit so much better and look cool as well. They are holding up well. I have been wearing them everyday since I got them a few weeks ago.

I got one of these for each of my children. I have always been a pretty strong believer in the Camelbak name and brand and I think their products last. Their bladders could use a bit of taste reduction in my opinion (I haven't had a new bladder in years so maybe it is better now - but that also speaks to how well they hold up). They are always a good product, don't leak much if ever, and just last. My kids will love them as they fit them really well and give them plenty of water for extended family hikes.

I got this pack after a buddy of mine had his for a time. The fit, quality, and capacity seemed to be a bit above other competitors. I haven't had a chance to put it through any testing yet, but the quality of this bag is top shelf!

So I started looking for a good "office" fleece from TNF and originally purchased TNF Highwood full-zip jacket and it was almost t-shirt thin and the XL was a bit snug on the ol mid section - so I returned it and settled on the Canyonlands full-zip jacket in XXL. The XXL is quite roomy, even to the point I may have been able to pull off the XL on this model. I was still slightly disappointed in how thin this jacket is, even for an "office" jacket. However, it is more of a true fleece loft/feel than the Highwood so I decided to keep with it. This isn't something I would try to wear in really cold weather, unless as a layer, as it has no wind block technology and not enough loft to provide any real warmth. The jacket as a cool weather spring/fall jacket and for the office, or high activity where I know I will sweat, seems to be the place for it to live. As an earlier review suggested, this is advertised as having thumb holes and it indeed does not have any. I also was a little disappointed that TNF logo is screened on and not embroidered. We'll see how long that decides to stay there before it peels off.

I have 4 pair of these socks, one of each color and two black pair... and I really like them. Thin enough to be a summer hiker, enough cushion on the sole to add comfort to hikes, enough style to wear daily. To a point made in another review - I do think these socks wear quickly - after the first time wearing them I had wool bunnies all over the socks. For the price I pay for them, I don't have a major issue with this. My Smartwool Phd's dont seem to last crazy long either...give em a try - I think you will like them.

Not as bright red as the online pics appear, just a slightly muddier color of red, which I really like. They are true to size. I wear a 10.5 in Nike and these were the same, they are a bit snug for my wider feet, but will break in. (this was the cause of my 3 stars) Hopefully they stand the test of time like some other reviews I have read on them.

Update: Almost a month in with these shoes and I wear them everyday to work. They feel like they are getting tighter instead of breaking in. Really struggling with the narrow profile of this shoe. I can't wait to take them off when I get home. Because of this I downgraded to a 3 star review. Well built shoe, no doubt, just narrow for my feet.
