Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

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.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: True to size

This shirt was incredibly soft and comfortable. Unfortunately, I had to return it because it was too sheer for my liking. I ordered the white and it was pretty see-through. It didn't look bad, but not what I was looking for. Definitely would need an under shirt with the white. Will probably re-order in a different color.

I got this sweater for my Mom as a gift and she loves it. She typically wears a Medium and that is the size that fit. It's simple and basic, but can be dressed up or down. She said she wears it on her days off but can also wear it to work. Good gift!

I got this for my sister as a gift. She travels a ton and doesn't really have a good suitcase. She was so excited and happy when she opened it and saw the Herschel logo. The black is super sleek and stylish. The inside has two different mesh compartments and looks it could hold a ton. The handle goes up and down smoothly and seems like it would be good to roll around. I think I need to get myself this bag now. It's sweet!

I got these for my Dad as a gift because they are what he asked for :) He had a pair of these and loved them so much, he wore them out. He normally wears a size 8.5, but asked for the size 10 so that he'd have room for socks and possible neoprene socks. These are great go-to boots for fly fishing. My Dad was super happy!

I got these as a gift for my sister and she loves them. She said they are super comfortable and soft. She wears a size 7.5/8 and the Medium fit her perfectly. Can't go wrong with Stance socks!

I gave these socks to my Mom as a gift and she loves them. Stance socks are super comfortable and don't fall down. She wears a size 8 and the Medium fit her perfectly. The price is hard to beat!

I got this flannel for my husband and he loves it. The pattern is unique to other flannels and he always gets compliments when he wears it. It isn't too thick and fits true to size. He usually wears a size Medium and the Medium fits him perfectly. I definitely recommend this shirt if you are looking for a gift.

My husband LOVES The North Face so he was super excited when I got him this hat as a gift. It fits really well and looks really good on him. There is an adjustable back and he wears it all the time. A hat that everyone needs to have in their collection.

I got these socks for my sister as a gift and she loves them. They are super soft and comfortable. They don't fall down like some no-show socks do. She wears a size 8 and the Medium fit perfect. Can't go wrong with the price! Now I want a pair or ten :)

I got this for my sister as a gift. It is perfect for someone who travels with their dog. She does a lot of weekend trips and this kaddie is perfect for carrying her dog's food and other accessories. The side pockets can fit a leash, collar and treats. She loved this! Now I just need to get one for myself.

I've never owned bib pants before, but I knew I wanted a pair. I love these because of the cute pattern and slim fit. I needed to adjust the straps a bit until it fit a bit looser, but they fit perfect. The inner legs have vents down to the knees. There is a zipper at the cuffs so they can go over ski boots easily. There are plenty of pockets and all with zippers. I've worn these pants resort skiing and backcountry skiing and loved them for both. I've also gotten compliments every-time I've worn them. Definitely recommend!
