Does the Trick!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Picked up a body-sized towel in the clay colour. After looking at a few options, these towels seem to be the smallest and most packable option, while also remaining functional.

Arrived in a small grey rectangular zip stuff sack, packed nice and flat. First impression was that it is a nice earthy colour, and material felt good quality. It's nice and thin and packable, but not too thin or cheap feeling. The towel has a sewn-on loop with a button closure so that you can easily hang the towel on a line to dry or use the loop to roll up the towel if you choose not to use the stuff sack. I feel the body size towel is perfect for backpacking- definitely large enough to dry yourself off, large enough to lay out and do a good morning stretch on, but not so large that you feel you're taking up unnecessary space in your pack.

I wanted to wash the thing before taking it backpacking for the first time, in case of any colour bleed. I took a shower and used it to dry off, and it works exceptionally well. I would say even better than a standard cotton bath towel. I was able to wring it out very easily, threw it in the wash, and hung to dry. It dried quickly and packed up easily into the stuff sack.

What more can be said? Does the trick. Pick one up.

Fit: True to size

Purchased these shoes a couple weeks ago when they were on sale. They were just over $70, and for that price I can't complain. Even if i were to have paid full price, i still wouldn't complain. Between my running shoes, casual shoes, boots, etc. I average a sz. 46. I ordered a 46, and they fit wonderfully. I have average-high arches in my feet, and average or maybe slightly above average width; and again, they fit great. The heel is comfortable, the sole is stiff with ample padding, the toe isn't too narrow and is easily made wider or narrower with the toe strap, and for a <$100 shoe, they are well made. Its been 35C+ the past few weeks, and with a thin cycling sock these shoes breathe well and don't have any hot spots.
Would the R1's fit better? would they be more well-made? would they be more comfortable and breathable? Maybe. But they also cost $400. These shoes were less than $75 and they do they job just fine.
