Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The best thing about these gloves is how versatile they are. They work for any winter active pursuit. The back is windproof and quite warm, while the palm is very breathable. Whether I'm running, fat biking or walking to/from work, they adapt. When it's 15-35, I close my fists and they keep my hands warm. When it's warmer or I'm working up a sweat, I open my hands flat, and they breathe like champs. They also work exceptionally well with a touchscreen --- even better than my super thin merino North Face gloves.

In brief: Cozy and cool for light, casual use. Expect cold wet feet for anything remotely beyond that.

I got these boots to wear around town, walking to/from work and short hikes in the snow, rain and cold. For those purposes, they are fine and I do love the look. But calling these boots waterproof is absurd. The exposed foam soles and ankles soak up moisture and funnel it into the boot when flexed. On a recent hike in very light rain the boots soaked through in about an hour to the point that I had to wring out my socks and the insoles. The boots then completely soaked a change of dry socks in a matter of steps. With each step the foam squished water into the boot. I resigned myself to water-logged feet for the rest of my 2-day trip and wishing I'd worn my goretex trail runners instead.

First, this watch does NOT have a chronograph or an alarm. Second, the watch face is ridiculously enormous given that it displays only time or date info. Third, you have to press a button on the watch to see the time. I got this for running, backpacking and swimming, and these three problems make it essentially useless for me. The watch did seem to be of high quality and the band was very comfortable. Wish it were a bit different.

This tool has everything I need and is very well built. The one downside is that the chain tool does not work well with 1/8" chains, which is the standard size for track bikes.

With a pin backed out far enough to remove links, the bolt that is supposed to push the pin through will not thread. I have to tap it with a hammer or U-Lock until the pin gets knocked in a bit and then thread the bolt. Unsurprisingly, one day it hit the bolt too hard and it striped the threads from the chain tool. But the rest of the tool has been perfect.
