Fit: True to size

Weight: 195 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

This hoodie is every bit as fantastic as could be expected from Icebreaker. You can feel the quality as soon as you put it on.
I buy a sz 41 jacket and went with the Large. While it's roomy and comfortable it doesn't look boxy or baggy. I'd say this runs exactly true to size per the size chart. The sleeves are fairly long so if you have long arms this will work great and if you don't they roll and look great.
This is the perfect everyday, all around piece for shoulder seasons or winter layering. The wool blend fabric isn't super thick or heavy but very comfortable and fairly warm.
The hood is a great size for casual use.
The zipper is a little bit stiff but actually helps keep the look cleaner. The zipper pull itself kind of snaps into place when you put it down and the zipper locks so it doesn't slide down when you don't want it to.
Overall, this has about the cleanest aesthetic of any jacket I own. It replaced the jacket I keep in my backpack to have with me all the time because it's now the most versatile piece I own.

Fit: True to size

I love these shoes. They're insanely comfortable. They're lighter than they look and they're great for almost anything you can throw at them. Fit is true to size. The colors on the Olive/Grey are awesome. Definitely one of the best looking pair of shoes I own.
The only issue I have is that the soles are coming unglued from the shoe. I imagine some super glue will fix the issue, but I'm still sad to see that happening before the shoes are seeing any wear whatsoever anywhere else.

Fit: True to size
Size Purchased: 11

I had my doubts, but these are more of a go to than my Triple Grey Ultra Boosts that I waited for to launch for 6 months and then sat around all morning refreshing my page only to pay $200 for. The Solar Boost is more comfortable, more supportive, and holds my foot in place better. I would actually run in these but more often I wear them for going out, or to the office. This is a perfect everyday shoe. Especially at $40 less than the cheapest ultra boosts.
Fit was great for me. I typically wear an 11 and can sometimes get away with a 10.5 depending on the brand. I wear 11 in all other Adidas. 11 was snug but definitely not too tight.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Size Purchased: 11

These are great as an approach shoe on less technical routes, or as a hiking shoe on slightly more technical trails. For me, the fit was perfect and very comfortable. I typically wear a size 11 and can get away with a 10.5 sometimes. I got the 11 and they're comfortable in the office and still when I hit the crag after. I'm definitely glad I got the 11 rather than a 10.5. Even the 11 is an aggressive fit. I have a somewhat narrow foot but I think most mid width feet should work fine with these as well. I got the magnet/pesto colorway and I love that it's understated enough that it's not out of place in a casual office setting.

As mentioned in other reviews, the fabric is a lot lighter than it looks. I also agree that this is a bonus however, because it spots the shirt from looking like an overly formal oxford shirt.
This is a great shirt with a pair of jeans or chinos and the fit is great. Very comfortable all day long. Love the Modela Yellow color.

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

Bought this for my buddy who just got his first road bike. He rides it mostly for leisure and commutes a little. He likes that he can throw his phone in it and still access the phone without having to pull it out. It holds a lot and keeps it all in reach.

Wearing this sweatshirt as I write this. I love the Chai color. Mine doesn't have as much of an acid washed look to it but still has an almost vintage vibe to it. The rib knit fabric that runs up the insides of the sleeves and down the sides under the arms allows the to stretch almost like an athletic jacket, but it definitely still keeps a casual style. The chest logo is understated and classic but definitely visible. Sleeve length on this was perfect for me as was the overall length of the sweatshirt. Stitching seems to be clean.
I have noticed after washing this that there's some definite pilling happening but it doesn't diminish the look much. It's not horrible. But it's enough to knock this down one star.

Big fan of these pants. Plenty of stretch throughout to keep them feeling comfortable while still maintaining true slim fit. I found that they fit longer than a lot of pants in the same category. I went with a 32 which is my normal length and probably could've gotten a way with the 30 for my style.
Seem to be made of a durable fabric blend. Time will tell.

I absolutely LOVE my Raen sunglasses. I have them on all the time now and even went out and ordered a pair of Raen prescription glasses. The fit is so classic, they look good on everyone, I swear. The quality is definitely there, too. I don't worry about my Raens like I have other glasses, and they feel great on your face.

This is my second pair of the exact same socks. Not because my old ones wore out but I needed a backup for when the first pair is dirty. These are great for During or Post workout to help get blood moving, provide some support and help with recovery. CEPs fit system is great so you can make sure you get the right size.
