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

Bought this for my parents. The setup is easy and the tent is roomy. The long sided door makes getting in and out easy, full rainfly with a decent amount of vestibule space. This is their first new tent in 20 years and they are pumped. Definitely not a backpacking tent and the stakes that came with it are a little flimsy, they bought some bigger ones from the home depot.

My husband bought this and says: I run between a small and medium in most shirts, bought a small because I want this to be tight. The small was VERRY small. I am 5'10", 38"chest, 31"waist and 150lbs. Material felt great. Found another jersey I like more that was cheaper so got that but probably would have gotten a large in this.

My husband bought these and he says: Someone once said that walking around in chamois is like walking around with a dump in your pants and these are certainly no exception. Comfortable to ride in, but not the most comfortable chamois I've ever had, my sits bones seem to get sore pretty quick when wearing these. They ride low in the back on me which is doesnt feel great. I am 5'10, 31" waist, 150lbs. I still use them a lot but there are probably better ones out there.

My husband got this shirt and he says: This is a great looking shirt, very comfortable. It fits me well, I have a smaller build and the medium fits me well: Height 5'10", chest 38", waist 31", weight 150lbs. My only worry about this shirt is that the different colored sections of the shirt are different pieces of fabric. As the I wear the shirt more and wash it more I am worried that these seems will either break down or stand out, time will tell.

My husband bought these and he says: Great full finger glove, love the extra protection over the knuckles. Can be a little warm at times. I have smaller hands and the small fits nicely. The silicone grip finger tips is incredible, I feel like I am glued to my bike. Only complaint is that there is no e-tip: a pain to take the glove off to snap pics.

My husband bought these and he says: After biking in board shorts for the past 15 years these are a major upgrade. The stretch is unbelievable. Very slim fit which is good for me, people say they run small but I had to tighten the built in waist straps all the way. I have a 31" waist and bought a medium. Only complaint is that there is not a pocket for my phone which makes taking pics and looking at maps easier.

My husband bought these and he says: These socks are R and L specific which makes for a great fit. very lightweight and breathable, usually my feet go numb at some point during my ride, they have yet to do this while wearing these socks. Size 8.5 foot bought a medium, fits great.

My husband bought these and has this to say: I needed some full coverage glasses for biking, had heard great things about these so I pulled the trigger. The look great which is nice and they come with a low light lense which is also awesome. Changing the lenses is a little terrifying and I have chipped the lenses while doing this already. I am scared that too much changing will break the lenses. Also, I could have gone bigger,maybe the arena max. While wearing the glasses I can look below the lenses if I look down. All other vision fields are covered. This is my fault and I should have gone to a store and tried them on first. No fogging issues unless I stop biking, image clarity is exceptional. Very solid on my face, do not slip at all. All in all I am very happy with them, but not sure I am going to be switching the lenses much.

My husband bought this shirt and he says: This is a great fitting t-shirt, slim, a little long perhaps. Every time I have worn it I have gotten compliments from strangers. 5'10" waist 31" chest 38" weight 150lbs, bought medium. Put it through the dryer, it shrunk a little but fits me better after. Would like to buy the other styles if they get back in stock!

My husband bought this jersey and he says: Initially I bought the medium but it was quite baggy on my, the small fits great. Height 5'10", waist 31" , chest 38", weight 150lbs. Have not worn on longer rides but has been comfortable for the few 8 mile rides I have taken it on, looks great when getting beers after the rides!

My husband bought these shorts and he says: I love these shorts, they look good, great for hiking and have worn out when I bike to dinner or the bar. The stretch makes these so comfortable. The built in belt works great, who wants to wear a belt while hiking? No one. I imagine these would work well for mtn biking too just havent used them for that yet. Wore them to the airport and didnt have to deal with taking a belt off for security. Only thing is sometimes the front pockets will flair out when in certain positions, but does not bother me that much. Waist size is 31" bought a medium and it fits great.

My husband bought this jersey and he says: I like the full zip, the no-slip strip on the bottom keeps it down while im biking so i have not had any issues of it riding up. Decently long so when you bend over on the bike you dont get a tramp-stamp tan. Material is a little thicker which is why the 4* not 5*, but then again the lightweight jerseys cost more so... pretty much what I was expecting. On the fit: I am in between small and medium in most things: 5'10" 150lbs, 38"chest 31" waist and the small was much too small, medium fits great.

I lost my old school Tevas last summer and needed something for an upcoming rafting trip in the desert. These are slightly updated and more stylish from the older Originals, which brings some good and some bad changes.

The Good: They are definitely more delicate and stylish - the sole and straps are thinner / more low profile making these less embarrassing to wear outside of camping in the desert or rafting. They are also very comfortable - I wore them for an entire weekend without getting any hot spots or blisters.

The Not So Good: Because they are more delicate and feminine, I think they are lacking a bit in their traction and stability. They worked for rafting and lounging around camp, but I would not rely on these to hold any traction when boulder hopping or hiking around rocks.

I really wish they made these in half sizes as well - I'm a 7.5 and usually size up when forced to choose a full size, so I ordered the 8 and wish I'd gone with the 7.

I was looking for a cute, slightly weather resistant jacket to wear when the weather is shifting and this one definitely fits the bill! It has a great style - slightly longer than the hips in length, flattering collar, drawstring detailing at the waist, zipper or button snaps depending on the look you want to go for. I also love the zippered pockets - super convenient to stash your phone or small items if you want to skip the purse. I wear this to bike around town also, so it's awesome to just throw my cards, phone and bike keys in the pocket and go. It can't replace your raincoat, but works great in variable / transitional weather. I would highly recommend this piece for someone who lives in San Francisco, LA, or someplace where it stays cool at night throughout summer!

Originally, I picked up the 45L Black Hole and decided it was way too small for my intended purpose, and after getting this one as a replacement I've decided that it's my perfect go-to weekender bag! In the two short months that I've owned this bag (I have the light grey / purple color combo, which also happens to be unique and cute) I've brought it on work trips, car camping adventures, and on airplanes as my carry-on bag for weekend trips. It's amazing. It fits perfectly in the overhead bin and the side handle makes it easy to pull down (especially as a short person) when you're rushing off the plane. It's awesome for car camping and fits into our jenga trunk packing situation far better than an unwieldy backpack. The backpack straps are a bit thin, but still convenient. I have also used one in a criss cross capacity as a makeshift shoulder strap that makes for easy carrying across the airport. They are a bit tricky to put on as mentioned in other reviews - you need to rotate and slide the plastic end piece into the D ring, then rotate again so it locks into place. All in all, this is an incredible, well constructed, versatile travel bag. My husband certainly doesn't need another bag but he's so jealous every time I whip this out that I will probably buy him one for his birthday so he stops whining about it.

I typically camp with a Big Agnes 15 degree mummy style bag and recently gave this bag a try on a camping trip to Moab - I LOVED it! The warmth to weight ratio seems great to me, it packs down nice and small, but is oh so cozy to sleep in. I like that there's a bit more room at the feet and head, so you don't feel claustrophobic and can comfortably turn over inside it (I tend to thrash back and forth when sleeping). The material is super soft as well, just thinking about it makes me want to curl up and take a nap. No complaints, highly recommend this bag!

When I'm car camping, I go for comfort first and like to have extra space in our tent and this definitely fits the bill!

PROS: It packs down to a good size, has a solid footprint (sold separately), is easy to put up and take down, the construction feels really sturdy and not flimsy at all like some tents on the market, the zippers also had a nice feel and seem like they will hold up for a long time, interior pockets are helpful for stashing headlamp and other necessities.

CONS: This seems on the small side for a 4-person tent. I slept in it with one other person and two big bags and we basically took up the whole tent. She did travel from California to go camping in Utah, so her bag was massive, but I was still surprised by the lack of interior space. The only other downside in my mind was how loud the rain fly was during a windy night - hard to say how much louder than your average tent, but it sounded like we might blow away and made it hard to fall back asleep. On a still / slightly windy night, everything was great and I had no issues.

All in all, this tent is a great value for the price if you're looking to upgrade your car camping system!

Picked these up when I wanted to upgrade my crappy flat pedals to something grippier, and what an upgrade! No more slipping on tough uphill sections, these let me charge through the pedal stroke with confidence. Color options are rad too. Only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because I've tried more expensive flats and thought they handled noticeably better, but for the price difference, these are a great option for anyone!

I've never owned true mountain biking shoes, used to use trail running shoes, so I did some research and asked friends and this brand came highly recommended. I agree with the other reviews, I feel great riding in these - they are super sticky on flat pedals (assuming you've upgraded to pedals with plastic / metal pegs - which I 100% recommend if you are on flats!) and make me so much more confident riding uphill and stable going downhill. Love the fit and style, they are super comfortable and I don't feel embarrassed wearing these post ride to grab a bite / beers with friends.
