Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My 14 year old daughter started a job at a local amusement park this summer (2018). She knew that the summer was going to be hot and wanted a water bottle. With money from her first paycheck her first purchase was 32 oz Wide Mouth Hydroflask water bottle. It's bright yellow (her favorite color) and keeps ice cold in 100 degree heat through her entire shift. We had to stop putting so much ice in it because it wouldn't melt and she'd be stuck with a bunch of ice cubes after she drank her water too quickly.

One thing she mentioned was how "nice" it was. It's one of the first things she hasn't stuck a dozen stickers on because it's just too nice. It's definitely received a ton of use this year at work, boating, at the beach, and on a few hikes. She looks forward to taking it to school also.

If you ever seem to have a leak it's just the rubber gasket in the cap. It may be off a little and need to be pushed back into place. The handle is nice also for carrying around. I wish it was dishwasher safe and could fit in a cup holder in my car but those are very minor things.

Overall, I'm happy she made such a good purchase. She's taken good care of it and I hope it will see use for a long time. I also have one but in a different size and cap. I would definitely recommend.

I got the Black Camo version of the Kore Short. I've become a fan of lined shorts since a certain yoga company made them so popular. I also wash them between uses (because gross if you don't.) I find myself between a medium and a large in most things so I stopped by the warehouse store and tried them both on. I ended up sizing down to the medium because I liked the fit - there was not a huge difference between the two. I use them mainly for workouts and for being out and about walking, hiking, strolling with a pup, etc. I love the look of the shorts. They also are a great fit and have a ton of stretch. There is a sewn on logo that stands out quite a bit on the left side - it's not bad but it makes these look a little like swim trunks. There were a few things I would improve for a $68 short:

1. Put an extra pocket on these like a media pocket or a zippered pocket (I can't keep my phone from jumbling around and falling out if it's in the front and I'm exercising.)

2. The velcro pocket in the back is nice but it doesn't fit modern phones very well and has limited use.

3. Another person mentioned that the cool-max liner was kind of itchy...They're right! It has this weird itch to it even after washing. I have another liner pair from the previously mentioned popular yoga company and they are fantastic because no itch.

Final Verdict: The shorts look great - almost like a perfect fitting board short with a nice waistband/drawstring. I wear these at least once or twice a week and they have held up really well through most activities.

It's difficult for me to give anything but 5 stars. I purchased it last week and have worn it more often than I care to admit. First off, the material of the shirt is a perfect blend of 50% Cotton and 50% Modal Fabric. This makes the shirt very soft with a great amount of stretch and movement. The length and cut of the shirt is remarkable. The shirt drapes nicely and drops lower in the back. I have several t-shirts and I go back to this one due to the overall length and comfort. The logo is inconspicuous but still nice on the placement it is just about an inch above the hem on your left hip. It's stitched on and is a nice detail to the shirt without being distracting. Two slight drawbacks: 1) Collar "Baconing" mentioned by a reviewer is definitely a thing if you are a wash on warm and throw it in the dryer kind of guy like I am. This means the collar scrunches up in the dryer. I have noticed it does go back to normal with a few minutes of wear. 2) I like my shirts a bit more fitted; I should have gone with a medium although the large fits well it is true to size. If you want a more fitted shirt I would go down one size as the length and stretch will make up for the difference. It's perfect for a workout, a day of weekend errands, or grabbing a drink at your favorite watering hole with your buds.
