Sunny Loves Her Harness
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this harness. Instead of teaching a dog to walk on the leash by yanking around her neck, it's better to direct her around by using her body. The harness is easy to clean, the first day she had it on she rolled around in the dirt and it was simple to wipe it off. The best part about this harness is I can basically airlift her out of situations and the harness just hugs her body perfectly.

Sunny and Denver Love Their Leash
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This leash is made of some gosh dang quality materials- Both have withstood multiple rounds of tug-of-war and I can assure you, there have been zero snags! Sunny loves to chew on her leash, which is understandable since she is teething. The padded handle is really nice and detaches for your convenience. Instead of attaching it to something by tying it, you simply detach and then reattach.

Sunny Loves The Gourdo
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Every pup is different so I'm not going to say whether or not this is a hit for all dogs... But my 9 months old loves to chew on this. When I throw it she just gets confused and doesn't understand why I'd do that. So maybe she really loves it and doesn't like playing fetch yet.

Running and Running Large
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These shoes are great for running errands. I've used them for walking to doggo, gardening, aggressively mopping, speed walking, and running after a cat.
Quite comfortable to say the least. I think they're honestly a great shoe for someone who's life/job requires a lot of standing. I wouldn't recommend these for hiking though.. In my opinion the tread on the bottom is too squishy and not as supportive as I would like. But someone might think differently. Which is totally okay. The upper mesh material is nice and breathable to ensure your feets comfort in warm temperatures. I wore these in 80 degree weather on a blacktop driveway pulling weeds and my feet stayed pretty cool and no hot spots. While these shoes are quite nice, I would recommend sizing down. I'm normally a women's size 9.5 in Nikes, Adidas, and Five Tens, and these were too big in the 9.5. I would have been good with a 9 or even 8.5, to be honest.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I grabbed this because the proceeds go to a great cause. "Found My Animal promotes animal adoption in a very direct way: let your pet wear your values. By encouraging rescue over purchase, we support animal welfare by asking pets and their owners to help deliver our simple, important message." This collar is really cute and is thoughtfully made aesthetics wise anyway. This does not, however, serve a true purpose other than a CUTE collar. The rope is quite thin and this runs small. Per the size chart provided, maybe go up a size or two for your doggo. Or maybe my dog got fatter overnight. Grab the size it says and the size up and compare the difference.

I got this for my sister, here's what she had to say: "I really like this Rumpl blanket! It isn't the warmest blanket, but I think it would be good for indoor use. I used it as well as another blanket in a cold repurposed mill and I stayed fairly warm. If it's getting below 30 I probably wouldn't rely on it. It's also not very long or wide. So if you're over 5'8 maybe grab something longer. "

I bought this for my mom and she loves it. The color is spot on, the leather is great quality, and fits all the NECESSARY items you would need in a purse. No more excess, unnecessary space that causes headaches due to digging through a black hole. The only downside is the strap, she is worried it might wear and snap over time but that may or may not be an irrational fear. Other than that, she loves it!!

These are great for spring or fall riding.. or even early summer morning rides when the temps are a little cooler and when it's a bit windy outside. I would not recommend wearing these in the winter. They're not insulated and don't have a fleece lining. I didn't give these full marks because the rubber on the palms has started to peel after 3 rides which is annoying but whatever I'll survive. I do recommend if you want a very simple lightweight, long-fingered glove for the above seasons as mentioned. Or if you don't get too cold or too hot or just want a pair of great gloves. Grab them!

I've had an obsession with succulents lately so when I saw that we carried this towel, I had to grab a couple.. They're soft, vibrant and quite large. The photos don't do them justice.

I couldn't decide if I should give these 4 or 3 stars so I put 4 to be nice today. I'll start off by saying there are NO front pockets.. they are strictly for show. When I say NO front pockets, I don't mean like it's normal for women's pants to have "pockets" in the front where you can't put anything in there... I mean there are absolutely no pockets. I knew that when purchasing since above it says, "Pockets- 2 rear" in the description. Thought I should reiterate that for you. On to the good stuff, these are like they say, long and lean. I'm all legs and these are perfect. They're not like normal Free People pants where if you're taller than 5'8 and have a long inseam (35.5in for me), they turn into cropped jeans- These are long. They're also super stretchy, to the point where I could do the splits and they didn't rip. (tested and proven) . Now.. for the fit. This is tough because I hate saying "true to size" or size up or down because everyone's bodies are so different and everyone has their own personal preference on how they want things to fit. For me, I have muscular legs and a booty from cycling so these fit exactly how I wanted them to. I sized down since these are stretchy and I know will probably stretch over time. I also wanted to add that these are high-waisted. That's about all I thought mattered to mention but if you need further details, feel free to email me and I'd be happy to clear up anything.

These are OK socks. They're not like the greatest, life-changing socks I've ever worn but they serve their purpose as being a barrier between your foot and shoe. I have a feeling they might get a hole at the top after a couple times of wear... TBD. They are cute, soft, and the colors are true to what's in the picture above..

I'm usually one of those lycra wearing cross-country mountain bikers if I'm being totally honest here. So when I was told that I needed to wear baggies, I was doubtful I would find something I actually liked. Well, I'm glad I went with this jersey because it changed my view on mountain bike clothing in general. Very stretchy, nice and cool, airy, breathable, true to size. I attached a photo of the material up close so you could see the texture. If you ride a Yeti, this will look great. If you don't ride a Yeti, this will look great.

To start things off, I'm going to be very honest in this review... I'm typically a Continental 4000S II tire kind of girl.. always have, always will be. So when it came time to put these on my wheels, I was a little hesitant because I was afraid of all the potential flats. Here in Utah, I ride in a lot of farmland areas where goat head stickers are everywhere, as well as the busy canyons that have broken glass and other stuff from heavy winter use so I was basically just expecting to flat no matter where I'd ride. NOPE.
The first ride was a good 4 hour day which involved 3k of climbing and lots of farmland as well... NO FLATS. It has to be fluke right? So I rode the next day, then the next and realized okay it's time to pay attention to other things instead of potential flats. Once I started paying attention to the ride quality I really started to like these.. a lot. Well, how else could I put these to the test? Race them. I went and raced a weekly crit in these.. GREAT TRACTION. These tires are sticky, light, durable, and can corner well in fast turns (no it wasn't a lady crit, it was with men and women's cat 1,2's so we were cookin' on those turns!). Verdict? I'd ride these again but wouldn't make them my "go-to" tire. That's probably just a personal preference thing.. but it is PERSONAL.
Their overall purpose? I think these are a great winter tire to be honest.. the textured surface allows for increased grip on wet, uneven, crap all over the place, roads and is pretty firm for a road tire. A little too stiff for my personal riding preference but WONDERFUL overall.

To be honest... I bought these glasses initially to get as much coverage on my eyes and face as possible. Sun exposure can cause some pretty serious eye conditions, like cataracts and not to mention, wrinkles. No thanks. Prevention prolongs the inevitable, but at least my skin and eyes will stay younger longer. The first time I wore these outside was insane... I didn't think I'd notice a difference with the polarized and choromapop lenses, but everything is super clear and visually appealing. I would highly recommend spending the money for a REALLY nice pair of sunnies.

Your New Go-To Trail Shoe
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 150 lbs
Size Purchased: 8

Before purchasing these, I had been used to hiking in either big clunky boots or simple tennis shoes.. so when I purchased these, I was quite eager to test them out. What was taking me so long? These are the perfect shoes to take hiking down in Moab or up in the Park City mountains. The aggressive tread on the bottom allows for ample grip and stability when scrambling through the forest or desert. The midsole actually provides enough cushioning if you're the kind of person that wants or needs a maximal shoe. Fits true to size. I normally wear a women's size 9.5 and the 8 was spot on.

Bought these for my boyfriend. He absolutely loves them and wears them almost daily. After 8 months of use, they are surprisingly showing little wear. Very comfortable and durable. He wears a size 12 with most shoe brands and Teva fits very true to size.
