Great hiking shoe.
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 207 lbs
Size Purchased: 11.5.

I recent did about 50 miles of trail hiking in the 4s, and have used the 3s a lot in the past. At first I was nervous about the 4s, but I think they did improve them and somehow removed or shifted some rough areas that occasionally bothered me. I usually wear a casual 11+ and hike in 11.5, but after the 50 miles, these did get a little tight, so I'm going up to 12s next time. The toe box is roomy and wide, the cushion is good, and they dry out reasonably well. The sole is a good balance between stiff and flexible, and the sole is a bit gummy with good traction on the rocks. The trade off in the sole rubber is that they get a beating from sharp rocks, and you trade feel and traction, for durability. So far I grab these the most for hiking, over and over for a couple years now. The update to the 4s turned out to be an improvement for me. Size up half to full size depending on how much you swell and the distances you do. These are worth a try.

I wanted to give an idea of the sizing of this shoe. I normally take a men's 11 for gym and everyday wear. For hiking I normally go with 11.5 for more room. In a Nike Wildhorse, it gives me decent toe room, in old Merrill Moab's it is pretty loose all around. So I went with 11.5 in these. That gave me a decent amount of toe room still, maybe a tad less than the Wildhorses and a bunch less than the Moab's, but still enough. The zero drop is noticeable, and they are comfortable. The sole seems gummy and sticky and soft, so I expect good traction, but less durability than a Vibrum hockey puck-like sole. Overall it's just a first impression, but I like them.

I've found past Capaline Daily tshirts were medium thick, stretchy, absorbed a fair amount of water, ran a little big, and best for casual use. I actually liked the old ones for the gym a lot though. So I ordered some more. The 2018 edition is different. They are much thinner now, run tight and short. I don't like them as much for my purposes, but they are probably a better hiking shirt now. I'm 6ft and 205lbs with a muscular build. Large is too small with this year's edition, though old ones still fit great. Size up! They are shorter and tighter now! I should have got an XL.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 207 lbs

I'm about 6ft tall and 207 lbs currently with medium sized legs and a 34-35 inch waist. Got these as an all purpose casual cargo-type pant. The waist is true, the butt and thighs are snug, but the stretch makes them really comfortable. Below the knee they are loose and large. I probably could have went with the 32" length, but they seem to work just fine being a little long. Comfortable and can probably be used for active stuff (a lot of cotton though) or to hang out, or go out to dinner. I always figure if something is too big, I can just cook it in the dryer... but these don't seem to shrink much so far. Still, I like them.

I'm about 6ft tall and 207 lbs currently with medium sized legs and a 34-35 inch waist. I got a pair of these in 34x32 as a gift and bought another in 34x34 for myself. I can't really tell which fit the best. The tapered legs allow for more length if you want it. These jeans are slim and modern, with a fair amount of stretch for error. I'm using them as more of an urban, casual jean. They pretty much hug you from waist to ankle without being too restrictive. I modern cut in some funky colors also, to mix up your collection.

I'm about 6ft and 207lbs presently with a 34-35 inch waist, and I got a few pairs of these at this point. I use them as a casual short for around the house mostly, but I could seem them used anywhere an elastic waist gym shorts would come in handy. They are light and comfortable, and come to just the top of my knee.

Do it. I'm about 6ft and 207lbs presently with medium sized legs. I usually run a 34-35 inch waist and perhaps 33 length. I got a pair of these in 36 waist (and the standard 32 length) and immediately got another. One fits perfect and the other a little loose in the waistband. Both are snug around the butt, and legs. The stretch still gives you plenty of movement though and they are really comfortable! Not full skinny jeans, but perhaps trim jeans. A modern cut and taper with a more subdued classic styling with the stitching and wash. You can dress them up or down. Pretty nice all purpose jeans.

These are some pretty comfortable jeans. I am 6ft, 207lbs presently with medium sized legs, and usually run about a 34-35 waist and 33 length or so. These jeans run a little tighter in the waist band, but loose in the legs, and pretty long. I got the 36x34 and they were huge and over my toes almost. Returned for the 35x32 in both colors and they fit great. They have a nice, comfortable stretch, when combined with the looser legs, makes them a great casual jean. Style is mature and classic. The dark color does bleed and bleed. Headed the warnings: Hand soaked in a bucket 2-3x with detergent, then washed 3-4x on warm right out of the box, and that seems to have worked.

I was worried this would be too tight, but it was a great fit. I'm about 6 ft and 200lbs and went with a large. It was a trim, fit but a good one. Long arms and some stretch to it. The material is very thin but nice. Great summer shirt - cool and thin. The seams and cut give it an athletic feel, but not restrictive. I might have to pick up a couple more if I can catch a sale.

I'm 6 ft 200lbs and I've got a few of these now in Large. Stretchy, cool polyester makes for a great summer shirt. Mature style, and athletic cut looks good and hangs right on a muscular frame. They dry fast and feel cool on a hot day. Another great multipurpose shirt you can use outdoors or for dinner in the evening. My go-to shirt this summer.

I got one in black, then another in blue. I'm 6ft 200lbs and I got these in a large. I'd say the fit is not too tight, but tight and stretchy in the right places. It's made of a stiff and medium thick polyester with some stretch and crunch to it. It's decently comfortable. It beads off water, at least for now. It's nicely multifunctional. Can be dressed up or down. Not cheap, but I think it's worth it for what you get.

I'm 6ft 200lbs with a 35 inch waist or so and I got these in a 36. They are nice. A stiff polyester with no stretch. They feel durable. I'd say they are loose fitting except for the waist, which I'd guess runs 1inch too small. They do fit me well for what I was looking for. Loose and casual for the beach and pool. They have a single zipper pocket with a key loop inside. Colors are OK.

These are nice board shorts. I'm 6ft 200lbs with about a 35 inch waist or so. I got the 36" waist in these. I'd say they run an inch small. They come to just above the knees on me. They are a comfortable "normal roomy". Great fit actually for me. No stretch polyester, dries super fast. Just stylish enough it cut and color combos and accents. Single button pocket with a key loop. Fly with a single button. Love um.

This is a big, fairly thick, very stretchy super comfortable hooded fleece. I mean super cozy. This thing was born for lounging on a cold day. It's lined with a very soft fur, and that plus the stretch = awesome. That being said it runs big, so I'd sat size down if you are n between. I'm 6 ft, 205 lbs and I'm swimming in an XL. A L would have been better. The stretch gives you room to go us little smaller. I'd say it's best for casual use, but you could use it for layering. Potential to overheat if active though. It doesn't hold much water surprisingly.

I honestly don't know what I'll use this for yet, but I can tell you, it's comfortable. It's light, stretchy, and soft, cuts some wind, but not all of it, moves well with you. Love the two-tone brown color. Probably not super water resistant, but for active days I don't think you'll overheat in it. I'm 6ft 205lbs and the XL fits me with just a little room to spare. I'm a tweener with XL and L's, but the XL is right for this one with me.

I'm 6ft, 205 lbs and the XL was a decent fit with a little room to spare, could probable squeeze into an L, but I don't like stuff too tight. This is a nice, thick, warm, basic zip fleece. Didn't shed much in the wash, does hold much water, and pretty toasty. Good for cold day layering and as a stand alone with the zipper it's pretty adaptable.

I bought this because I love the Canyonlands non-hooded version and I see the options for the 2017 version aren't as nice in the overall cosmetic-design- color department as 2016. They look a little plain. So, I thought I'd snatch up one last 2016 combo, but with the hood. Overall it's a nice, thin, light hoodie, but the hood is a little floppy and sloppy and the cut is looser than the non hooded version. I LOVE this without the hood. I'm 6-ft, 205lbs and the XL in the non-hooded is perfect, but the sizing with the hood is more relaxed so I'd say if you are between sizes go down on the hooded version. XL is a Lille big for me in this one. It's great for me to wear on a cool hike, around town, or on a cool night outside or inside. Not super thick or warm, but just enough for a light chill. These hold no water and are light and comfortable overall. I'd say go with no hood though for a trimmer fit and just a little more mature look for casual use.

I'd say that this one had great potential. It's comfortable and I actually like the look. The sizing is strange though. I'm 6 feet and 200lbs or so. At first I got a large as a gift. It was pretty tight, especially through the shoulders. So I returned for the XL and that one is ok in the shoulders with a voluminous beer gut area. I wish they would make to shoulders wider and the length longer and the gut a little tighter. It's made for a square or pear shaped person. I wash

This review is for sizing and feel only for now.... I received this as a gift in size Large. I'm 6 feet tall and 200lbs. It was a tight fit in the shoulders and chest and torso length. It was a close call, but there was no room for error, or anything else. As a casual coat with a tight modern fit, it would be ok. But I've sent it back with plans to get the XL for more roominess. The sleeves were awesome though. Length to spare, and good cuffs so they don't dangle. Very nice material and warmth to weight and comfort. This happens to me at times, as I'm stuck right between L and XL. I'll write more when the next size comes in.
