Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 6"
Weight: 145 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I'm a huge fan of merino jerseys but my old icebreaker ones were more roadie looking. This is exactly what I as looking for. 3/4 loosish arms work well with pads and it's a bit longer in the back. Well made and light enough to wear in the summer without that polyester funk. It washes well and I've worn this thing off the bike as well. My only complaint is the neck line. WHY do women's jerseys often have the wider neck line? I would prefer a regular crew neck or henley for venting.
This fits true to size and I got my regular medium for a loose but not baggy fit.

These bibs are of really nice quality. I especially like the wide leg band. It stays in place and doesn't cut in. Bib fits true to size and is very comfortable. It also washes nicely. The chammy is low profile so this is great for mountain biking and shorter rides. I do agree with the previous review that it did feel a little rough during the first ride (one wash) but after the second wash and second ride it was just fine.

First of all this is a killer sale on a merino blend jersey for <$30. Like other reviewers said, it runs a little short, in both arms and torso but nothing too terrible. I usually wear a size Medium and got the large and it fits nicely in the torso, albeit could be a touch longer. On the bike I remedy the short arms with some arm sleeves underneath or wrist warmers just because I like that coverage. I got the gray and end up wearing this casually quite a bit because it is just plain comfortable and regulates body temperature really well. I get questions on the pockets on the back and as to why they are there and try to make up fun answers :p For the money, this is a good buy for the sale price.

Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 140 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

This is an awesome shirt. The fabric is techy but super soft, comfortable and has just the right amount of stretch. I could not agree with the previous reviewer about the shirt running super small. If anything this shirt runs slightly bigger but it depends on how you like it to fit. I am most often a Medium and bought the shirt in both small and Medium to try and I kept the Small. The small is fitted with enough room in the shoulders and sleeves. I prefer less floppy fabric and wanted to be able to wear this casually also. The Medium fit a little more baggy but it didn't look too big. I just preferred the more tailored look of the small. I would say this shirt has generous shoulder room to accommodate an athletic built. In the small I would not have enough room for elbow pads underneath the shirt but I wanted it more for a commuter and layer than a jersey replacement. That said, this shirt seems like it is super well made and could take a beating. Elbows are reinforced and the metal buttons seem extra beefy. The zipper pocket on the side is a nice touch and will fit small essentials (my regular iphone fits with a little extra room for a power bar and keys). The chest pockets do not have a button which makes them more or less unsuitable for storing anything but a trail map. I might add some snaps to mitigate that. All in all a nice shirt that looks good on and off the bike.

Awesome after break in

Fit: True to size

Size Purchased: 37.0

I got these on sale bc $150 for fivetens were not in my budget. I'm a Women's size 7 and went with a 37 and the length fit great. This is a narrower shoe and I had a little discomfort in the toe box at first. I had the shoe stretched in the toe area which cost me $5 and they are great now. They are sticky but not so sticky that I can't reset my foot when I need to. The shoes are pretty sturdy and well made without being too heavy. They protect my feet from rocks and they are comfortable enough for hike-a-bike. I also find them super grippy for scrambling up rocks to get good views. They aren't too hot and dry quickly.

This is my second pair of Electrics. My first pair has been holding up great for the past 3 years but they have yellowish lenses and I needed to add a darker pair for those bluebird days. I didn't want to break the bank but wanted to try something with more peripheral vision. These totally fit the bill. They are big but not ridiculously bug eye big, the padding is nice and soft and they fit my face great. My boyfriend liked mine so much that he ended up getting a pair also. Good thing they come in so many awesome colors. I have the Solid Berry with the Jet black lenses and love them. They worked out great on the slopes on a sunny day. Top of the mountain was ridiculously windy but they never budged and I had no air coming in. Vision stayed clear all day, even with some major shifts in temperature and working up a sweat they never fogged up. Awesome goggles!

I just got a chance to try on this jacket and I liked it ok but it wasn't what I had in mind for a ski jacket.
Pros: *Fit is true to size and as expected with Mountain Hardwear it has room for a layer and gives enough room in the shoulders to not restrict movement
*wrist warmer cuffs made from super soft butter fabric
*lots of stash pockets
*key holder
*good looks
Cons: *back is insulated with monkey fleece which I could see get kind of sweaty
*NO PIT ZIPS

I would say this is a great jacket if you aren't looking for a super technical ski jacket and/or if you have no use for pit zips coz you get chilly or ski mostly in colder temps. The jacket looks good, the fit is comfortable and it has ample stash for all the essentials that you may need to store during a ski day.

Love my Teekis

Fit: True to size

I am a huge fan of Teeki and can't help buying a new pair each time I see them go on sale. These are my favorite hot weather leggings because they are like a second skin. Super breathable and dry very fast. I love the fit because they make my bum look good and the waistband doesn't cut in. I just took these on a trip to Mexico and they were great to have in the mid 90 degree, humid weather. I wore them out to dinner at night and during the day for sun protection, out on the water, for snorkeling and they held up great in salt water. I just washed them out at night, hung them and they were good to go again in the morning. Totally hooked.

I like Ospreys backpacks and gave this mini messenger bag a whirl, trying to replace a Vaude bag. My biggest beef with this bag is that the main compartment does not have a zipper. Yes, it has the flap that is fairly secure but when I'm traveling I like the double security of a zipper and then a flap over it. There are several zipper pockets to stay organized but I wanted this as a travel purse and for this purpose it was a touch too big and didn't seem secure enough. The material on the inside of the bag feels plasticky. I returned it.

This is a very cool bikini top that can also double up as a yoga top or sports bra (with a small bust). I really love the back details on this. I'm a 34B and the Medium fits well and stays in place even when jumping in the water off of a rock... The removable pads are annoying because they move around but I just took them out.

I ordered these pants because of the design. I had tried the Alo Airbrush Capris in a Medium and they were perhaps a touch snug and their rise was low. Hence, I ordered a Medium and Large in these. The fabric for the shorts part is very comfortable, stretchy but supportive if that makes sense. I would call these a mid rise. I kept the Medium in these bc they look more flattering on my bum, are comfy and don't give me muffin top. If I would have gone purely for comfort, I would have kept the large but they were not nearly as supportive and the fabric bunched up in the crotch area, plus the ribbed leg part was too loose for my taste (and way longer than the M). I love the extra long legs because they give you some options: pull them over your feet when you're hanging out and you don't need socks, they also work to keep most of your foot covered when wearing flip flops. I have washed them once so far and they looked like new when they came out. Not made in the US. (Tag says "Made in Vietnam") You can request info from Alo on their SPO and they are using a third party non-profit to audit the manufacturing sites. Excited I found these on sale.

I bought these for the high waist band and the graphics and they are a total win. They are very flattering for my curvy figure and look great under dresses. I have also used them as long underpants for layering. The fabric is very breathable and dries in a snap. This comes in handy when I forget an extra pair of pants to change into after hot yoga class. Speaking of yoga: the material is thin enough that they totally work for hot yoga. They actually end up cooling you as they get sweaty. The cloud print is not sheer and they don't give you camel toe or muffin top (for those that may be wondering). On me, the waistband is a little loose so they bunch up a little bit when yoging but no big deal. I have been washing these mostly in the shower when I'm in there anyway but they also held up fine when I put them in the wash. Probably wouldn't put them in the dryer. Suffice it to say these are great and I will order another color.

Been eying this for a while and finally ordered it. Really happy with it. It can be dressed up or down and I got lots of compliments for the it when I wore it to work the first time. Very comfy and nice for small bust. The V neck plunges very deep so I like to wear it with a sports bra or camis underneath. Medium fits well. I am 5'6 and 148 lbs. Also the arms fit just fine and are not too tight.

I just received the boot and tested it today in 8-10in snow. I walked through the forest for about 2.5 hours with the dogs with some steep slopes to climb. My feet stayed dry and warm and I had absolutely no issue with the heel rubbing (as it happens with boots sometimes). The boots are very light and not clunky at all. I have the KEEN Presidio and KEEN sandals in a size 6.5 but ordered a size 7 in the Hofn which was a good move. The boots are cut narrower than my Presidios but are still ok for my feet. I would prefer them a bit wider but I haven't broken them in yet. Overall happy with purchase: nice boot that will keep your feet warm and look good wherever you wanna go when it's cold and snowy.

There is a temp. rating on the inside of the boot that says -25F/-32C...in case anyone was wondering.

Cute

I picked this collar up for my 7 months old Aussie coz I liked the Daisy style. I got the Medium and it is nice and wide and the nylon is very soft (but tough)and I would suspect it to be more comfy for my dog to wear than a really stiff nylon collar. The extra tag loop is a cool addition and works well. The Daisy design is girly with more pink than in the pic (to my delight). This is our new every day collar. For leash training I will still use my stiffer nylon collar coz if you have to tug on the leash for a correction the collar will slowly loosen( I guess, that is coz of the soft material). Nonetheless a sweet collar that is very well made and will last a long time.

I wanted a warm, light and compressible vest but wanted to avoid down. Gear Chat recommended the Micro Puff and I think it was a good choice. The vest is of good quality, I like the partly recycled aspect, it is light and reasonably warm. I wore it in snow (25°F) with a light icebreaker underneath (snow shoveling and running around with the dog)and was very comfy. I am 5'6 140lb and got a Medium which has some room for layers. The armholes could be a bit more fitted and I wish the back of the vest was elongated. However,I am happy with its performance so far and think it will work great for all my outdoor endeavors (and the chilly library).

I got these to replace a pair of Teva sandals and really like them. I've worn them two summers and they held up well so far (w/o stretching out). They fit my wider foot well (Chacos were way too narrow for my feet). I like the simple style and comfort. I have size 6.5-7 and size 7 fits me well.
