Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 145 lbs
Size Purchased: 10.5

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.

I really like Dakine packs, because I have a Heli pro sitting next to me right now from 2005 that is still like brand new. I have a few different packs and duffels from Dakine and they've all really impressed me and this one is no different. If you need a good backpack for hauling photo gear this is the one. Plenty of room for you camera, a few lenses, batteries, etc. The interior gear holder is removable if you want to use it as a regular pack making it a lot more versatile than a typical camera bag.

I'm a Nixon fanboy, so I may be a bit biased. I have 15 Nixon's in total and 5 51-30's. If you're looking for a watch with a big face this is a must have. If you haven't had a watch with this size of face be warned they are big, and fairly heavy. I've worn mine at least 4-5 times a week for the last 7ish years and I don't even notice the weight. Anyone that doesn't wear a watch, or that wears PU or leather band puts it on and the weight and size are definitely noticeable. Great quality though and a super clean look that most big faced watch's don't have.

Can't go wrong with the classic Time Teller. Bit small for my liking, but my girlfriend loves it! One of the best features of this watch is the adjustable clasp. No need to go to a jewelry or watch store to get it fitted. Just pop open the back with a small screwdriver and adjust to wear you need it.

I've had a few different Goldcoast boards over the years. I haven't longboarded in a while and decided to get a drop deck this time instead of a pin tail like I normally ride. This board is a blast! Super fun for carving, but be warned it is soft. I'm 6'1" 145lbs and this board toes the line of being to soft. The softness does make it a bit hard to maintain stability when bombing longer hills. If you aren't super experienced on a board I would recommend something stiffer for a bit more stability. If you're looking for a light weight fun board for carving medium slope hills I'd definitely recommend it.

Just an all around really solid pant for getting out and moving. Love the stretch in them. They do run a little tight in the waist. I usually wear a 30 waist in all my pants but I probably should have gone with a 31 to add a little more room to move in the waist.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Got these for my brother in law and he loves them. He was telling me the other day up riding they are more comfortable than his vans that were down in the car. The only downside is the boa system to tighten them. You can never get boa's to tighten like you can a regular lace up boot.
