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

These are so cute and durable BUT the laces are terrible and do not stay tied. They're so dense and bulky I wish they would have chosen another type of lace. The color ways they offer are so great and we love Keen. They have been nothing but great and with my sons far from narrow footprint they are always our go to. I do recommend these but like I said the laces are disappointing and they match perfectly. They're a big part of the statement they make but switch them out. These are a great casual option that are versatile.

Great Everyday Tee

A beautiful red and simple design.. we're happy with this shirt for school and adventures on the weekend. The color is as shown online which isn't always the case. I've washed it a few times and there are no cracks or wear showing in the logo. We purchased a small in this shirt for my son who is 6 years old and wearing it on his first day of first grade in this photo. He measures in the waist at 24.5" and the chest at 26" and the small is perfect with some room to grow throughout the school year. I purchased a Marmot shirt and this shirt both being 100% and this shirt shrunk when the Marmot did not which was a little disappointing and odd, I will say. This one shrunk in length just a tad. Enough to notice.

Bought these for my sister-in-law and she was not disappointed.

"This is my second pair of Birkenstocks and just like my first pair, these did not disappoint. They are so comfortable and a great alternative to tennis shoes when you want something comfortable to wear during the summer."

I gave these as a gift to my brother and here is what he had to say :

"These are the quintessential Patagonia board shorts. They stand up to anything and they always look great. I’ve been wearing Patagonia board shorts for years and I keep coming back because nothing else compares."

These are a great fit, period. Designs as you see them online and a soft material that makes you want to wear them everywhere. Scott is wearing them in Florida and being an athletic and thinner build he wore what he usually wears a 34x21.

RUN LARGE
5 5

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

These are the best they offer, by far. They offer something breathable to wear almost all year round and with the drop heel Olukai is known for it's hard to beat in comfort. They come in versatile colors and are so well made. My family has purchased several of these, the leather one, their flip flops... they're all good! This style does run a tad large. My brother who doesn't have a narrow foot still found these a size too large. My brother usually wears a 11.5 - 12.0 and after exchanging them the 11.0's were even a tad large as you can see in the photo. He wore them on his vacation to Florida and loved them. Loves that they are supportive along with comfortable and of course offer that drop down heel for easy slip on and off while heading to the beach. He dressed them up in his Patagonia polo and Khul shorts or with his Homegrown t-shirt and Patagonia board shorts. They're very versatile. Please size down for these since they run large.

Might be the perfect Polo
4 5

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 2"
Size Purchased: Large

These polo's are so soooofft. They fit well and are flattering on just about any body type. I have purchased these for both of my brothers and one is thin and has an athletic build, the other not as thin but more muscular, both fit great in a large. The look nice and clean cut. I'm a fan and don't even wear them myself. Here is my eldest brother (thin/athletic) on his Florida vacation wearing his Fitz Roy Polo paired with his Khul Renegade shorts, which if the man you're purchasing for doesn't have already I highly suggest.

The only downfall we had with these is I ordered 2 different colors in a large. 1 was about an inch larger than the other color even though they both read as a large on the manufacture tag.

We ended up returning these since the waist was so large. My son is pretty tall but he still has the waist of a 5 year old. We purchased small and his waist is 24.5", hip at 26.5" and an inseam at 18"... and they were HUGE! The length we could deal with and grow into but they were too large. I would say these run a little larger than the size guide shows.

My son's new school backpack
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

While shopping for new back-to-school packs my son surprisingly picked this messenger bag. Also not to mention, he's in first grade this year. So I was a little skeptical about getting a messenger and not a regular backpack for support and comfort. So far so good, he loves the size and the strap. It offers SO MUCH room for anything he needs. The bottom of the messenger has a durable polyester ripstop and I love that it's been treated with the DWR (durable water repellent). So if he's hanging outside waiting for me to pick him up, whether it's raining or snowing, he's good. The flap offers buckles which are really easy to open and close (no pinching included). I also like that it offers a reflective stripe for low lightening when on the go. All the essentials for him going to school are included, even has a mesh elastic bottle holder for his HydroFlask.

When he's not using it, I am! It's the perfect bag for an adult that wants to carry more than maybe can fit in your purse. I've worn it while out at the zoo or concerts. It's just large enough to bring that light jacket, wallet, water bottle, accessories, phone, snacks, etc. It has organizer pockets for just about everything without feeling overwhelmed. I included some more detailed photos just encase you're wondering what it looks like in there. I'm 5'9" and this works great on my hip or even goes down much lower if needed. The adjustability is a nice detail, if you've tried on other messengers some don't offer that as much as you would think.

Carter is also wearing his new The North Face Graphic Tee in Boys' Short Sleeve T-shirts which is offered here at Backcountry.com

Let me get this straight, they're great shoes material wise and cosmetically. They also look like they have some great support and that's why I got these for my son but they unfortunately didn't fit no matter the size. We went and tried these on in a 2.0 and they were a tad narrow and short. Then purchased these on here in a 2.5 and they were STILL just as narrow and about a inch too long. My son is 6 years old and wears normally a 2.0 - 2.5 these days. He sadly has some tough shoes to fill having some duck feet. His footbox is pretty wide and he's a fan of Keen's for this very reason. But growing up they want something fast and cool like other kids wear so I've been trying to fit him in some Nike's. We have had seriously no luck in any Nike's, They run narrow and I couldn't find any in his size in a Wide with. Bummer. They are a great shoe and I have known other folks that love theirs but they weren't for us unfortunately.

Great Adventure Shirt
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 4' 0"
Weight: 60 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

My son is a fan of Marmot gear, to say the least. Jackets, pants and shorts, hats and beanies, shirts and hoodies... everything we have gotten through Marmot has been great and this isn't any different. It's a good fit and I have washed it three times. There hasn't been a issue with shrinkage or with any obvious color fading. I was concerned with that considering it's 100% cotton. It's a nice green without being too neon which is something I was concerned about. He has some shirts from them with this color on them from last year so they matched well. He loves this shirt because it's a cool-guy green and it's soft. He can wear with jeans, blue or black shorts, etc. Even though it's bright, it's versatile.

He is 6 years old and a small fit perfectly with some room to grow the upcoming year. Some measurements below to help. The photo is a trail head called Desolation Trail up Millcreek Canyon here in SLC, UT.

Measurements :
Chest : 26"
Waist : 24.5"

So much better than expected!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Purchased these for my beautiful Sister-in-Law and this is what she had to say...

"I didn’t expect to love these as much as I do! It’s been years since I’ve owned Smith sunglasses and I wish I had bought these sooner! They fit comfortably and the lenses are great. I’ve received so many compliments. I’m seriously considering buying another pair in case I lose these."

Smith has a great fit and honestly me, myself is a little obsessed with them to. the quality and durability along with the great selection of frames and lens colors offered. It's a great company.
