Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Not only do my husband and I own this tent, but my best friend had this as something she wanted as a wedding gift. I purchased it for her with no doubts because we love our tent. The 3-person is perfect for two people and a dog. It's super easy to set-up and great if the weather is bad. I would definitely recommend this tent and my friend also loves it.

Size Purchased: 7

These sandals go with just about anything. I can dress them up or down. There is no support, but I pronate so don't like shoes with high arches. The black leather, looks more grey and worn right out of the box, which I like. I typically wear a size 6.5/7 and the size 7 fits just right. They do take me a second to put on because of the toe strap.

My sister always raves about these shoes and how comfortable they are. For her birthday, she asked for as second pair. I ordered her the Black/Black/Dark Grey, which looked more dark blue to me. But she loves them enough to want two pairs. I think I need to order myself a pair now :)

I purchased this rack and am happy to report nothing but positive feedback so far. It comes disassembled but the instructions are easy to follow and all the parts were there. From beginning to end it probably took 30-40 minutes to install and the directions were simple. Yakima even includes all applicable tools for assembly (wrench and hex key). I also like that this rack comes equipped with a hitch lock and integrated bike locks to make it ready for use right out of the box and nice to be able to ride before work and leave my bike locked for the remainder of the day.

It's priced competitively compared to other racks and what really sold me on this rack was the compact design as I don't have a lot of extra room when parked in my garage. Very easy to get your bikes on and off and the bottle opener is a good touch as well, especially after those dusty rides. So far I have nothing but good things to say and am happy with the quality, design, value.

I purchased this wallet for my husband who was always complaining of his previous wallet being too big in his pocket. He said he loves how low-profile this wallet is and the way it fits in his back pocket. It's simple but has all the qualities needed in a wallet. He loves it!

Fit: Runs small
Size Purchased: 9

I purchased these for my Dad for Father's Day and unfortunately they were a little too small. I am definitely getting him the larger size because he loved them. He loves Reef and said he usually goes up a size. He's usually a size 9, but will wear a size 10 in these. Now I know!

I usually wear a size 6.5 or 7 and I ordered a 6.5 in these sandals. Unfortunately, they were just a little too small and I had to return. I am definitely exchanging for the size 7 though because they are super cute and comfortable.

This swim suit top is so cute. I ordered a Small, which I typically wear, but it was too small. I had to return. I'd recommend going a size up if you are on the cusp of two sizes. It fits like a sports bra so would be perfect for athletic type water sports. The back straps are also adjustable.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I originally purchased this backpack to take on a two week trip to Mexico because my old one's strap broke. It was great for travel with a secure synch top under the flap. There is a hidden inside pocket where I kept some valuables and a padded laptop pocket. Now that I'm back, I use it everyday for work. The padded back and straps make it comfy to wear for long periods.

I love this rain jacket and receive many compliments when I wear it. I got the Gray Palm pattern and love how it resembles camo. I can typically wear a Small or X-Small and after reading the reviews, I went with X-Small. It fits perfect. I love the metal zipper as well. I've worn it quite a bit in the rain and it keeps me dry. Definitely recommend this rain jacket.

I love this sleeping bag so much that I purchased one for my mother-in-law for her 60th birthday. I have this tent and when she said she wanted a sleeping bag for her birthday, I knew just the one to get her. It's really warm and comfortable. It also packs down small for backpacking type adventures. It's also hard to beat the price. Recommend this tent for any female camper out there.

I lost my first pair of these and had to have another—they’re that great. The size fits my face perfectly, providing full coverage for my eyes. They are lightweight and stay put on my face during all types of activities—running, biking, and skiing. Because of the larger frame size, they sometimes get steamy when the top is all the way up against a beanie or helmet but I can usually get them to clear quickly by adjusting them or my headwear.

This light is so bright and easy to mount to your handlebars, plus it clips on and off its mount easily (so you can slip it into your bag when you park your bike somewhere less secure). This is my first proper headlight for city biking and it is bright, simple, and USB rechargeable—perfect.

It’s USB rechargeable, super bright, and easy to slip on and off the mount. I especially appreciate the 10% mode for when you’re biking with friends and don’t want to blind them. That mode is still very visible, plus the battery lasts forever when using that setting. The normal modes are very bright, plus the “breath” pattern is pretty unique.

This is my second origami fender (got a new one because my bike got stolen not because it stopped working!) and I love it. It is quick and easy to install, plus easy to pop on and off depending on the daily weather forecast. It provides adequate blockage of water for those rainy days but is probably best for a relatively dry climate (I use it in SLC). For the price and ease, it can’t be beat.

These are my favorite yoga and workout pants now. They are really soft and I love the pattern. The waist goes up higher than most that I have, which I like for some of the yoga positions. They are also not see-through. Highly recommend these if you like to receive compliments :) I wasn't sure if I should order the X-Small or Small, but I went with the Small and they fit perfect.

I don't like wearing bras with underwire or padding, and this bra has neither of those. It's perfect! I love the cute straps and it's really soft. I typically wear a size 34/B and I got the X-Small/Small and it fits perfect. You can be sure that I'll be ordering more of these.
