Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small



Main Pros: Super cute and water resistant(rode my bike for about 30 minutes in light rain and my feet stayed dry).

Main Cons: Painfully stiff, uncomfortable, and hard to put on. (hopefully the cons list goes away once they are broken in)

The leather uppers featured on this item lend to a much stiffer shoe and the elastic tongue is a bit tight for someone with a high instep. The normal break in period won't be adequate for these babies.(I'll report back with a post-break-in review.)

If you are going to try these out I would recommend trying to stretch the leather out with something other than your sensitive tootsies. Your heels and achilles tendons will thank you.

p.s. You may get more requests to perform the moon walk than you are used to.

I have a couple pairs of jogger style sweat pants and I love them but they aren't very durable . These are made in the same style but with technical fabric that makes them way more useful and versatile.

I would suggest sizing 1 size down from your normal fit. The baggier fit may cause some unflattering bunching/folding in the crotch area.

This thing is awesome. It sets the mood just right. Stayed put when I attached it to the seatrails of my bike and helped my homies find me on the streets.

Pro Tip: Remember to charge this baby. I took it camping and neglected to take it out of my bag until the sun was already gone and it didn't stay illuminated for more than 5 minutes. Disappointing for sure, but a mistake I won't make again because the light it supplies is soft, cozy, and convenient.

Enjoy the Glow!

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

I purchased the XL as an alternative to the more pricey "yoga" towels that prevent slipping in pools of sweat during hot yoga. Worked like a charm. Very absorbent and wrings out well so you don't have to tote around a sweat/water logged towel. I wouldn't suggest bringing an XL backpacking because it is a bit big, but I'll be getting a lil guy for my pack.

I've had this hammock for a year and it is by far my favorite item purchased off this website. I use it everyday in the spring/summer/fall to lounge in while I have an afternoon beer and play fetch with the dogs.

Love taking it camping. It is easy to set up and is great for camp site chillin.

Buy a hammock and enjoy life a little more.

These glove are the best. They work well as liners, driving gloves, biking gloves, hiking gloves, city gloves, dog walking gloves, cold weather snapchatting gloves(Etip is the bomb), and many more uses that I am excited to find out about.

They are not warm enough to keep your fingers from feeling the frigid air if the temp drops bellow 30 but that is why I say that they also work well as a liner. Throw some waterproof mittens on these babies and you will have happy hands.

They are way snug and comfortable. The sleek and low profile design is something that I really appreciate. I loved them so much that I bought myself a second pair and bought a pair as a gift for someone else.

Definitely recommend these for their multi-purpose awesomeness.

Really cute, but that's about all they have going for them.

They are very difficult to get on and off and there was a lot of painful rubbing around the ankle during the two weeks they took to break in. Neither of these are deal breakers for me because good boots can take a while to break in and are worth it in the end.

These are advertised for cold weather and wet conditions which is mighty misleading. They held up fine last winter because it was dry and warm. This winter their true colors showed through and they weren't pretty.

Walking in deep snow banks and slushy puddles resulted in completely wet socks. I didn't notice any insulation. These boots seem to be poor rain boots disguised as snow boots. Every seam leaks, especially the seam where the rubber toe meets the leather upper. The heels will start to peel and look unsightly. The leaky seams and peeling heels were enough for me to want to warranty them but those problems didn't arise until the week after the year warranty was up. My high hopes for these boots were dashed.

Having wet and freezing cold toes is not something that I enjoy at all. If you share that sentiment than I would strongly suggest finding an alternative boot.

I love these shorts. I was a little worried about them bunching up in the crotch but they fit perfectly. Ridiculously comfy for lounging. Perfect for yoga. You can Utthita Hasta Padangustasana to your hearts content without fear of flashing your fellow yogis your downstairs bits. They are super quick drying too, ideal for hot yoga.

I was way into these shorts because I get sick of the mid thigh tan line and thought that the shorter version would be a great alternative. Unfortunately they didn't work out for me. The length was fine but squished my inner thighs in an unattractive manner. Returned them and went with the Pearl Izumi Symphony Shorts. Much pricier but way better fit.

These might be good for someone with smaller thighs but if you are thick widit like myself I would not recommend them.

What a great price for something so essential to riding. The first one of these that I bought straight up fell off my bike while riding. It was disappointing for sure but at such a great price I was totally willing to pay for a replacement. The second one I fixed to my bag as a secondary light and a backup in case the batteries in my primary back light run out.

I would totally recommend this light for basic city commuting or a secondary light fosho.
