I’d been wanting these shoes for what feels like a few years but they were a little more than I wanted to pay and I was leery of how comfortable they’d be . I was concerned the leather would be very stiff and rub in a few places. I could resist no longer when I saw they were on sale. It’s a really great looking shoe, in person, and the leather is surprisingly supple. I’ll have to get back to my review after I’ve worn them out and about but the leather seems soft enough to not require being broken in. They seem to be in the realm of “ true to size”. I have narrow heels, they don’t slip but the leather is so supple I’m curious to see how much this leather stretches once I start wearing them.

The fabric seems really durable, though I haven’t had a rough fall in them. I’m 5’3” with short legs & they fall below my knees which would probably be great for wearing knee pads. I just did 3 days of a fair amount of pedaling ( yes, I did wear them for 3 days ) and I didn’t find the length annoying. I was in the desert , the temperature was cool ( perfect once riding), I let them air out, and they didn’t stink after those 3 days. I’m 130lbs , there’s not a huge difference between my waist and my hip measurements , I definitely carry my weight in my thighs and rear end , I bought these in a size small, wore a separate chamois, and the size was fine. If they were custom-made I would have had them sized down a wee bit in the waist , maybe a shorter crotch but I think a full size smaller would be too small. Overall , the sizing and cut was neither restrictive nor “ in the way”. Great short, overall.

comfortable and so far, so good for the quality and function
I feel as if they're sized to accommodate a thicker pair of socks ( no need to size up).
I haven't worn them in a wet situation, yet, which partially accounts for the 4 stars instead of 5. My initial impression is that the soles aren't slip-to-your-death soles. They seem to have decent traction.
I prefer zipper-free boots ( which are becoming a rarity these days) but I liked the look of these and am not disappointed with the product I received.

I've used this Dakine wallet for two years ( purchased from Backcountry Oct 31,2016) ; both exterior zippers have ceased to close the wallet. They move freely but the teeth no longer engage. The fabric and stitching shows little to no wear. I'm not a " purse ( or a wallet) woman" , so I use one until its done . I prefer a longer lifespan on items such as these.

These are a nice quality short when it comes to fabrication. The fit is a little off for me. I have minimal distance between my hips and my waist and a short rise. Usually, I complain about shorts being designed for hip-y women or women with a bigger mid-section but these make me think that TLD just shrunk or tweaked a men's short pattern . They're cut really straight through the hips with a long rise. I have a sizeable gap between my waist and the short . The crotch is long - reminiscent of men's shorts. I have to pull them up after awhile when I'm riding. If I were into wearing baggies while doing strictly, serious cross country pedaling, I'd say there are definitely other shorts better suited for that job. Adjustable waist tabs would probably make these fit a broader range of women. Personally, I prefer belt loops.

The color of the tawny is true to the picture. I was worried the metal on the ankle strap would be irritating but I don't notice it . I have small ankles and the straps are sufficiently adjustable . My bare feet measure slightly smaller than 25cm. I have narrow heels and I don't find these shoes to be unusually wide. The soles are not completely flat ( that's a make or break deal for me) , they have a smidge of cushioning but no true arch support.

I've loved every pair of Smith sunglasses that I've owned. These are fairly light weight frames. I've had no problems with slippage , even when I've been covered in sunscreen, dripping sweat, and riding my bike. I have a narrow face and they stay put. The color of the red frames is as pictured. I would like to mention that I've never worn them out on the water for hours on end so I can't say how they do in that scenario. I put in some long days in the desert ( outside of Moab, UT) for over a week wearing the Cheetah . One of those days, I spent 10 hours completely exposed to the sun (ZERO coverage) and my scleras were red after that 10 hour day.

The product looks very true to the photo. I guess I was expecting something else- maybe the print to be slightly bolder . It was the owl print that sold me on this scarf. I just wasn't impressed enough to keep it. I'm sure someone else could love it . The quality of the product is not notable . It is a little more viscose-y than I prefer.

I love the style of this poncho. I like the fact that it isn't made entirely of synthetic material ( cotton blend). It's a great not-too-heavy weight cover up. Most ponchos seem to be offered in a " one size " cut ; this never works for me ( in any clothing item) . I am petite in shape. I was pleased to try a poncho that was made in different sizes. The poncho I received was labeled sm/med. It was just too big. I know ponchos like this are supposed to be loose and flow-y but it was big enough that it didn't look right on me. I really wanted to love it on me. It will be a stylish item for someone else- I'll be totally envious . I rated it 4 stars for the style , fabric , and quality . I took away a star for the lack of sizing choices.

I find this to be a very comfortable sweater. I bought a small. I'm an athletic build , I was a lap swimmer ( broader shoulders, toned-ish arms), I am a 34 AA . I find the small gives me room to wear a mid weight under layer . I could probably wear 2 thin layers underneath . I haven't washed it , so I can't attest to the shrinkage.

These are really cute sandals though possibly may not the best fit for you if you have long and narrow feet. I bought the US size 8 and 9. I wish there were 1/2 sizes. I would have dealt with the length of the size 9 but there was so much gapping between my foot and the straps. When standing, the straps bagged out far enough on the sides to fit a finger or two. For this reason, I kept the size 8 . My heels land just inside the stitch line of the soles and my toes end just inside the stitch line in the front. They appear to be of sturdy construction. The foot bed is nice with some support ( it's not just a flat-as-a-board, hard footbed). This is the first pair of Olukais That I've bought.
