Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I love these shorts. They have a nice stretch and the fit is on point. It is more of a slim, shorter fit but not obscene. One of my favorite features is that they belt loops have smaller inner loops to hold a shoe lace belt. I've had these in past years as well. I like how the hem on the lower portion isn't as wide as it used to be.

Anyway, buy these. I tried on this pair, the RVCA Weekend and the Volcom SNT. The other 2 were returned.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this for my girlfriend to use wakeboarding and playing in the ocean. Xcel makes great gear and this is no different. She noticed substantial warmth gains. I attribute this to not only the neoprene but also the SmoothSkin exterior. She also loved the simplicity of the front zip. She normally wears a Medium in women's tops and the 8 fit great.

I bought this for surfing and wakeboarding. These tees are awesome because they keep you from getting sunburned, dry quickly and in general are never as heavy as a wet cotton T. I found this fit to be a true slim fit. I'm 5'11", 170 and the Large was perfect with nothing else under it.

Man do I love my Vans Authentics. Once they break in, they are like perfect gloves for my feet. This most recent pair was no different. I ordered the Dark Slate color which is kind of like a mix of dark grey and blue. Size was normal.

The Vans Authentic is a classics among classics in footwear. I have these to my girlfriend as a present and she loves them. The only thing I'll point out is that there is both a normal and thin soled version of the authentic. This is the classic normal soled version. Fit was true to size with other Vans.

I've been an obsessive RVCA That'll Do customer for years. If you know that shirt, you know what I mean. I decided to give these Stoic shirts a shot. Fit wise, I found the slimness similar. The difference was in the sleeve length. These have longer sleeves than the that'll do. That said, for the savings compared to the RVCA, I'm down. I think you'll be too.

In my life I think I've owned at least 10 pairs of Authentics. It's my go to summer shoe. I like how light the canvas is and how simple they are. All that said, I would never skate an authentic. Most will tear in your first few ollies. The pro version tries to address this with a taller more wrapped vulc cap, but i'm still unsure. All that said, these are still my favorite sneakers for other use. Plus with the pro version you get a legit footbed. Nice!

Size was as expected and true to fit.

These bindings are a classic in the rome line. I like how adjustable they are compared to the plastic baseplate bindings rome makes.

Performance wise, these have the amazing canted bed option. This gives your knees a break and keeps you riding for that extra hour. Plus the pop feels more like the ollie tail of a skateboard.

Straps are decently padded and comfy on my 32 Lashed boots.

Sizing can be tricky with these, depending which boots you rock. I/m normally a 9.5 and I like to squeeze in the s/m. I would only do this though if your boot has a slim outlining. When I switched over to a 32 boot in a 10, I had to bump up to the L/XL.

I've been an avid Holden fan for over 10 years. I've always enjoyed their take on fit. I was looking for a pair of relaxation/yoga pants and decided to give these a go. First off, I am a 32-33" waist. I wear a medium in most pants. The medium barely fit. This coming from a guy who wears slim denim (Krew K-Slim, RVCA Spanky etc). I traded up for a L. The fit feels right and still very slim. Choose your size accordingly.

My only other gripe with these is that I can feel the knee seams on my skin a little too much. If they weren't so slim, it wouldn't be a big deal, but they are.

All in all, these are unique and have their quirks.

This jacket/flannel is one of my favorites. It's my go to 30F-60F jacket. I could probably wear it down to the low 20s, but then I would switch to something else. Beyond the style and reversibility, I love the fit. I want to say its a slightly long/slim fit but in a size down way. For example, I like the long/style fit. I am normally a L. I went M in this and it was perfect.
