My wife uses this nano puff for cooler summer nights, camping, etc. It's a great light weight puffy to have on hand. It easily stuffs down in to the inside chest pocket making it super portable and packable. Her motto, since she is always cold, is ABP, "always bring puffy." This jacket fits the bill.

This is a great bad for all of your gear hauling needs. I have used my Patagonia black hole duffel(s) for gyms to camping gear. My only complaint is the back pack straps on the large sizes can be confusing - you have to feed the rectangular pieces on the actual backpack straps through the eyelets on the bag at and angle and when taunt they will hold. Not the most intuitive design and one I know Patagonia has to frequently explain to customers.

These flip flops are simple and effective and my go-to flip flops for casual endeavors. They are comfortable and practical with good traction on both the footbed and the sole. One item to note, the traction on the footbed is robust. If you are going be standing or walking in these flip flops for multiple days with wet soft feet your will feel a bit beat up. Not chafing just a bit beat up. I was fly fishing on a boat for three straight days standing in water and my feet were a bit raw at the end. That would probably occur in any sandal given how soft your skin gets being wet for three days, but it worth noting. Overall, I use these sandals all the time.

So wear these flip flops a lot and have been generally pleased but for a few items I would improve. First, the things I like. The fit is great and the quality is really great. These do not feel like cheapo Reefs, rather, everything is wrapped in leather and feels solid and dare I say luxurious on your feet. The stitching in the footbed is a great way to provide traction while adding a ice design touch. Two items I would improve would be to have a softer connector thing that goes between your big toe (not sure what the official term is). The connector is wrapped in high quality leather, but said leather is on the rougher side and not as pliable as I would like. It takes about ten hours of wear to soften up a bit but it is not as soft as I would like. Also, the footbeds are also not as soft as I would like. They shouldn't be super soft as that is not good either, but they could be just a bit softer in my opinion. Overall, I will continue to wear these sandals and I would def buy again if they make the connector softer.

This is a slightly updated take on a classic Adidas silhouette.
These shoes fit true to size, although the toe box is slightly on the small side for folks with wider feet...like me. My ideal fit is my normal size, 10.5, in whatever is one level above standard width. These feel fine and they wear well, but would be a smidge wider to be perfect for my feet

I have more than a few these shirts given the fit is spot on, not to slim not too baggy and the quality is pretty good. One interesting note is that these shirts are cut from tubular fabric which means that they don't have side seams in the torso. Its a small detail, but a nice one give you don't have any side seams to chafe

I have a few of these shirts in multiple colors as I am a big fan. The fit is true to size - the medium is perfect for me - not too trim and not too baggy. A cool fact about this shirt is it is cut from one piece of fabric such that it has no side seams in the torso. It is a small detail which is tough to notice, but makes for a nice profile and no extra interior seam to rub against your sides

I have now put these pedals on my last two mountain bikes and I continue to believe they are the best pedals on the market for your mountain bike. You can absolutely find lighter pedals; however, you will not find a better combination of function, durability, a nice platform on a reasonably weighted package. I prefer a small platform in my pedals (as opposed to egg beater style pedals) as it provides a bit more stability and confidence which is really meaningful for me. I also like the range of clip tension. I like my clips to be really loose so that they release under minimal pressure and these pedals fit that bill. Not to worry, you can also dramatically tighten down the clip tension if you are a rider who wants to hammer and is less worried about an easy release. Overall, these are fantastic pedals which I extensively used for the past five years and I have never been disappointed.

I am a big fan of the Kitsbow brand across all of its products, especially Kitsbow shorts. This piece is no exception. The quality is absolutely top notch and merino is the only was to go for your cycling tops. Styling is modern and updated. Fit runs a bit on the trim side, which shouldn't be a problem for most cyclists given they are typically a bit more on the trim side of the spectrum. If you are expecting this to fit like a medium t-shirt it is going to feel on the trim side; however, I like the fit for an active cycling piece. I wear medium in everything and I went with a medium hear and I am very happy
