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

I got these for my husband because he rides mountain bikes in skate shoes. He was very skeptical that mountain biking shoes would make a difference, but he admitted that these definitely do. The grippy bottom makes it feel like you are clipped in and secure on the flat pedals. They fit him true to size.

I got this for my Dad as gift because it's what he was wanting and below is the feedback he had to give.

If you've owned an EVO LT in the past the new LXT will be familiar, but certainly an upgraded rig. The buttery smooth drag system and that classic 'click' while reeling are what you'd expect out of this top end reel. It is very lightweight, but still balances the rod nicely. Also, you can't complain that it's one of the best looking reels out there! The beefed up drag pressures from the LT will work great for light salt water fishing as well - I can't wait to use it in Florida this fall! Very happy with this reel!

This tank is great for working out or hiking. The back is my favorite part. It cross crosses. There is a bra shelf, which I took out the padding. It does flare out and is flowy along the body. It is not form fitting. It's really soft,

I like this dress but it doesn't fit me that well. It is really cute, however I wish I had sized down. I usually wear a size Small, but I should've gotten an X-Small in this dress. It fits looser so I still wear it and like it. It also comes with breast padding like some swim suits, which I ended up taking out. I love the straps on the back. Overall, I like this dress and I wear it on my days off or or doing this outdoors that are more casual.

My friends got married who are from Vermont so they LOVE Burton. They also like going to music festivals and this was a perfect gift for their wedding. They can use it camping, in their backyard or on the beach. Now I need to get one for myself.

I purchased these leggings for yoga, but I find myself wearing them all the time. They are very comfortable and don't slide down when running or doing yoga. They are a thicker material, which I like because I don't have to worry about them being see-through. Definitely recommend the dark plum color.

I love the pattern on this tank, but I had to return because it was too big. I can normally wear a Small or X-Small and I should've gone with the X-Small. The cut is also pretty wide at the bottom. Definitely more loose than fitted. Will probably be ordering the size down because it is cute.

This tank is so soft and comfortable. The Cool Lite fabric is perfect for keeping me cool during a work out. The length is a little longer than most tanks, which I love. Not only is this tank perfect for exercises, but I wear it casually as well because it fits great and it's so comfy. Definitely recommend!

Birkenstocks are shoes everyone should have in their closet. They are super comfortable and to simply slip on and go. I was worried about the 'narrow' because I wouldn't consider myself as having narrow feet, but they fit perfect. I used to wear Birkenstocks all the time growing up and having a pair again makes me so happy. I think they run true to size. Definitely recommend.

This layering piece is so comfortable. I wear it backcountry skiing and cold weather running, but I also wear it casually. I love the thumbholes and the Polartec sleeves are super soft. The hood has an elastic band around it so it stays on when you are doing physical activity. At first I wasn't sure I would like the Ultraviolet color, but now I love it. It stands out. I typically wear a size small and the small fits perfect.

I love this jacket. Not only is it super warm, but it's really comfortable. I find that I forget to take it off sometimes when I get home because I like wearing it so much. The length of the jacket is a little longer than expected but perfect for keeping warm and when sitting on the cold chair lift. I've worn this jacket in some pretty wet conditions and it keeps me warm and dry.

I love this sweatshirt. It's a little longer than most, but isn't bulky on the sides. It's very soft and I love the front pocket. It runs true to size and Tentree is a great company to support. I definitely recommend this top.

I love this shirt. It's simple and basic and I wear it all the time. I ordered an x-small and it it still pretty long in the back and definitely does not fit tight. I'd probably recommend sizing down. I got the green color, but will probably order others. Looks great and is super comfy.

I've been wearing this shirt a lot more than anticipated. It's super soft and the fit is very flattering. The sizing is true to size. I ordered an X-small and it fits great. The sleeves are a good length and it's just the right cut. Definitely recommend.
