Im obsessed with this hoodie. I wear it running, hiking, climbing, skiing and around town. Super breathable and soft fabric. I will say, it seems a little heavy for desert wear but I haven't tried that just yet. I love the hood and how it wraps around your face to provide optimal face sun protection for bright snow covered mountain tops. Only qualm is that it fits a little boxy, as does every other patagonia article I have ever worn. I am a 35 chest, 27 waist and wear a medium. I wish it fit just a smidge tighter but the small was too small. Overall great product, I'll be wearing it for years to come!

Wore these tights for the first time yesterday in 38* temps and they were super toasty warm! The inner lining is a nice red fleece that *kind of* shows through while pedaling? It just stretches the fabric a little and then appears to be more red on your legs. Nothing crazy just worth noting. Chamois and comfort are excellent!!!! This chamois is among the most comfortable I have worn. Held up to a 3 hour ride in temps under 40* and was quite warm at the end.

I wear a size medium in these bibs.
I have a 27 in waist, 35 chest, 33.5in inseam. Fit is great! I wear medium in giordana, assos and castelli and a small in pearl izumi, louis garneau and santini.

Wore these bad boys for the first time yesterday riding in 38* dry temps. I have perpetually cold feet and this was the first time I have done a whole three hour ride and felt no chill on my toes! Seriously rad shoe covers. Fleece lining aids to nice extra warmth and the DWR coating will be great to try out in rain/ snow. Only qualm about these shoe covers is that I wish I got a size smaller. I wear a size 42 so based on the size chart, ordered a size large. They are slightly baggy around my foot, nothing to big that I need to return them, but should I buy again, I would get a medium for a more tight, streamlined fit.

Overall seriously love these and looking forward to many winter rides with them.

These eagle creek bags are a life saver. The double cube is pretty large, I usually use one for my pants or sweatshirts because of the size. It compresses wonderfully. I also have all my medical supplies in this size which makes it easy to tote around between my car, home and anywhere else I need to bring it! Love these products. Go buy one in every size, it changes everything.

I haven't owned many trainers or ever preferred to workout indoords but this trainer certainly makes indoor miles a lot more desirable. If you plan to train indoors through the winter or just want a controlled workout, I would suggest nothing less than the kickr.

Pros:
-Very quite until about 115 RM then it starts buzzing/vibrating fairly loud.
-Very smooth ride compared to wheel mount trainers
-Easy set-up / connectivity
-custom workouts when paired with Zwift or with Wahoo trainer app
-Direct drive is awesome and minimal wear and tear on your bike
-trainer comes with an 11-26 cassette
-When paired with zwift, trainer road or third party apps the workout possibilities are endless and riding inside becomes, dare I say it, fun!
-Resistance adjustments and real time power, speed, cadence, distance, RPM and more can be easily viewed and controlled via the Wahoo Trainer app.

Cons:
-Will need an ANT + adapter to connect your HR to app or computer
-Trainer needs to be plugged into electrical outlet to run
-Super heavy but also very stable (this is kind of a pro and a con)
-Power meter on trainer and Stages power meter on bike sometimes give me different readings.

Overall:
Expensive trainer but a great investment if you are looking to be serious about training through the winter. Easy set up and fun to ride. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

For a tire this heavy and low TPI, I was expecting to get a lot of life out of these guys. This was not the case. They are completely worn and falling apart after just a couple months of riding (about 1200 miles). They were pretty solid tires while they lived but I was not super impressed with neither the rolling resistance nor the longevity of these tires.

I've used this vest for years in light drizzle and slightly chilly temps. Some features I like is that the vest has one big rear pocket, which most vest do not. I also like the high neck line which keeps you protected from having wind shoot down your chest while riding.

Not a huge fan of the cut, it flaps a lot in the wind on my shoulders but is tight across my chest. This jacket is also not super packable. It doesn't stuff into a jersey pocket super well (although I've done it). I wish it packed down a little smaller.

Other than that, pretty solid vest for a descent price.

My measurements pretty much line up with the "medium" on the size chart directly (honestly the medium, based on the size chart, should be a little big). But all said and done, this shirt is seemingly sized for an infant child. INCREDIBLY small. Like woah I would barely fit my head in the head hole. I consistently wear a medium in all other shirts and a small or medium castelli jersey depending on the cut, and this shirt was just way too small. Size up, size up, size up!

Tried to put this rack on my dads car which has older Yakima rounds bars and while thule claims that this rack will work with round bars, it does not! The clamp is not big enough to fit all the way around the round bars. You have been warned! If you are looking for a rack that works great on round bars, check this one out:

These shoes are flawless, period. Like many others have said before me, these are absolutely the hiking boots you need to buy. I've owned an absurd amount of hiking boots in my life and always struggled with fit, waterproofing and durability, all of which these boots excel at. A feature I especially like is how the little hook you put your laces on when tightening them up is riveted to hold the lace in place so no slipping while you are trying to get the perfect fit! I was also surprised how lightweight these boots are. By far, my favorite feature is how they require little to no break in time. Right after I got these, I immediately put them on and went on a 13 mile strenuous hike in the Tetons. NO blisters, NO chaffing, No discomfort. I have not tested the waterproofing of these boots other than splashing in a few puddles, but feels dry so far. Looking to many more miles with these bad boys!! !

I have cliff bars stored in every backpack, purse, car and drawer in my life. Never know when you are gonna need a little refuel! Best on long rides or a quick snack before an after work shred sesh. Easy on the belly and organic ingredients makes them even better. Definitely a must have. New peanut butter, banana, dark chocolate flavor is to die for, try it!

I normally wear a medium across the board in Castelli product because it runs notoriously small. This jersey does not fall under the same smallness. It for sure runs larger than any castelli product I've worn so I sized down to a small. That all being said, I really dig this jersey and its lightweight, stretchy and breathable fabric. Sleeves are longer than most other jerseys I have (which i love!!) and it has nice grippers on the back of the jersey and arms to keep everything in place while riding. Great jersey for the price but for sure wear your normal size instead of sizing up for this Castelli item!

Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 145 lbs
Size Purchased: 4 and 6

I wear a size 4 / 27 consistently in all my other pants/ shorts (size 4 in patagonia shorts) and the 4 in these pants fit but was a little bit tight around the thighs and butt and a little shorter than I would have liked. I tried the size 6 as well but it was a little baggy and big in the waste. Good news is the waistband has a little drawstring so I ended up going with the larger size with the idea in mind that I would be likely wearing these pants with a base layer pant underneath and it layers great! I dig all the pockets and the stretch in the fabric is sooooo nice. Basically feels like wearing yoga pants with the durability of a heavy jean pant. Props Patagonia! My only qualm is that the pants could be a *little* longer. That being said, I am 5'11'' so all you more normal height ladies out there should be fine. DWR fabric is great for repelling sprinkles to a mild downpour and still keep my legs nice and toasty dry. For sure recommend these to hikers, climbers, and players in the outside. Just be weary of sizing! Overall, a great product.

Absolutely solid dry bag for storing food, shoving in gear when it starts raining (especially sleeping bags!!) and for all your other dry bag needs. I prefer the 20L size and find that is the most useful size for my food/ clothing needs on trips. Fabric is thick and durable and with just a quick couple rolls of the top, this baby is waterproof. I've also used it as a reverse dry bag to put my wet clothes in and keep the rest of my bag/ car dry. Useful little things to have, great price and lifetime warranty? Ill take one in every size!

15L is perfect for my 30* synthetic bag

Perfect little compression sack for my 30 degree synthetic bag. Squeezes my bag down to a great size for shoving into a backpack or even saving a little extra space in the car. Material is thin but strong and very lightweight. Straps are easy to adjust and compresses with ease. I also like the little area on the bottle of the bag to stuff in the straps so you dont have a bunch of straps flapping around.

If you have a down sleeping bag you could get away with a size down in this compression sack for sure but for all us synthetic sleepers, the 15L is the way to go. Overall, really pleased with this compression sack, once I found the right size for my bag ;)

I dig the simplicity of a plain logo t (that isn't a v neck, FINALLY!!!!) But this shirt has a pretty wonky fit. I normally wear medium in all my other shirts and patagonia clothing (puffy jackets and sweatshirts) and the medium in this shirt is real long on me. I am 5'11'' so if this shirt is long on me, you normal height people in the world should be worried. With that said, I wouldnt suggest sizing down unless you have smaller shoulders because the top part of this shirt fits me well but the length is just a couple inches too long.

Breathable, soft, quick drying makes these my go-to running socks. I especially like how the fabric goes up a little higher in the achilles tendon area to keep my running shoes from chaffing at area. I wear a US 10.5/ EU 42 and the larges in these socks fit me well. Also dig the cushion, not too much, not too little. Feels like Im running on a cloud.

This little guy is perfect. From cutting paracord in the backcountry to slicing open an avocado at the beach, this knife does it all and does it well. The just under 3in blade is an ideal size to carry everywhere. I like the double edge combo because it offers more versatility for cutting/ sawing. The lock out function is great and easy to open w/o feeling like you are going to chop your fingers off. Grip is sturdy and comfortable to hold even with sweaty hands. At just under 3oz in weight, this is the perfect do-it-all knife. I am constantly transferring it from my backpack to daypack to work bag to purse (is that weird?). Never know when you are going to need to slice and apple or pull some 127 hours stuff (hopefully never). BUY THIS.

This nifty little "plate" is my go-to for all car camping and backpacking trips. The raised edges make it t good for big ol bowls of oatmeal or dumping your dehydrated rice bowls into. Lightweight and strong plastic have held up for me over time. I like the little thumb hole for both holding the plate and also attaching it to packs or paracord or whatever. Useful little dish that all campers/backpackers should have for sure.
