Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought the Thule Archway Rack for 3 bikes for my hatchback this summer. Within about 3 months the rubber straps that came with it had already torn. It could be partly due to the shape and size of my bike frame. I picked up a couple packs of these extra straps to throw in my trunk. I figure they'll continue to blow out, but for $15 they last long enough its worth it. I've started using bungee cords to help secure the bike to the frame and I do these straps up a little looser. That has helped to let them last longer.

I have a bit of a wider head, so I have a hard time finding bills that look good. Most hats are either too narrow or they are like 51-30's. I'm not a huge fan of totally flat brims. This hat hits the perfect middle ground.

My favorite thing about Saga's hoodies and coats is the longer length without feeling like you are drowning in it. I'm a taller guy at 6'1", but only weigh 145lbs. I like my hoodies to fit long, but most brands if I go up to an XL they are way to wide. Saga's hoodies have a longer tailored fit. The panels built into the side are super stretchy, so you can still move freely when up riding.

I've owned at least 20 pairs of these over the last 15 years. Right now I think I have 5 pairs in my closet. Simple, clean look, and functional. It also helps that I have a really wide forefoot and they break in really nice after a couple days of wearing them. Protip - If you're like me and hate lacing up shoes especially skate shoes. When you lace them to the top eyelet instead of tying them, cross them back down to the second eyelet just like you would lace them going up. Then go cross them once more to the top eyelet. You should be left with about an inch or two of lace that you can just tuck under the laces on top of the tongue. Won't loosen up on you and you don't have laces snagging on anything while skating.

I've had a pair of these for a few years now. Held a really well over 3 or so seasons of medium use. Finally decided to grab a new pair this year. They aren't super bulky or padded, which I prefer.

My closet is full of these shirts in different colors. I'm a tall skinny guy and I hate how shirts either fit too wide in a large, and too short in a medium. These are slimmer fitting without being skinny and long enough I can get a medium and not have my stomach show when I lift my arms. Super comfortable and long lasting.

Never really was a huge fan of chinos. I would always go with twill pants instead for the comfort and the more casual feel. These are some of my favorite pants now. You can dress them up and still feel like you aren't wearing a pair of slacks. I skate them in colder weather and with the stretch I haven't torn a pair yet.

Disclaimer, I'm slightly biased as I used to work for Volcom. That being said these are the best chino shorts you can get, period. I have at least 10 of these is different colors and they've all lasted at least 3-4 years, if not longer. The fit is fantastic

I recently bought this board for my brother. Brother is 6' and weighs 150 lbs. The 7 ply construction has worked really well for him. Offers enough stability, without be too stiff for his size. I get on it at 145lbs and its a bit stiff for my liking, but I tend to like a softer board. He hasn't longboarded in 5 or more years and it offers enough stability for him while he's been getting comfortable again. Now that he's getting back into it, its enough of a board to handle bigger hills comfortably without having to upgrade.

I have 15 Nixon's, and while I prefer the 51-30's because I like bigger faces, this is the quintessential watch that every one should have. Not to big to get in the way, but still big enough to get noticed. Clean classic design that dresses up or down, and really solid quality.

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

My mom blew out her ACL this winter skiing and was really worried about getting out and hiking this summer. Got these for here birthday and she is ecstatic! Really solid design on the locking mechanisms so the poles don't slide. I've alwaus been really hesitant of collapsible poles because the few I've used have always slipped. I put most my weight on them and they still didn't budge. Mom's taken them out on a few short hikes while she's rehabbing her leg she really likes them so far.
