Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

These run way smaller than expected -- usually size 9 is a bit on the large size (I'm pretty squarely between 8.5 and 9) so it seemed like going with a 40.5 would be a safe bet. Nope! Toes were crowded both on the sides and touching up front. Admittedly, I have a fairly wide forefoot, but was somehow expecting these to be wider. Otherwise, though, they felt pretty good -- supportive and firm, like they'd be great for high-mileage types.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I went with this option because I didn't want to spend a ton of money on a hitch rack. Regarding the negative review, you definitely have to make sure the hitch attachment is cranked down tight to prevent wobbling, the hooks on the arms aren't the easiest to use, and you have to manually make sure that the rack is locked into place when you fold it up. That being said, once you get it working it's super-solid and works great. So, if you don't mind the tradeoff of needing to take a little more time to get it set up, it's a great value.

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

I gave this to my husband, who is quite pleased with it. It's nice and light, and comfortable on long rides. He has a pretty small head and the small fits great -- the adjustment dial works really well.

I have to say it's great to have somewhere to stash small things and my phone while riding, but the design of this leaves a little to be desired. Getting the straps tight enough is not easy, and the security of the velcro is a concern. Also, don't like having to take my iPhone 5c out of its case to get it to fit in the top sleeve.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm an ex-Hoka lover -- went through two pairs that I loved before they changed the design for more mainstream appeal. The fit of these has everything I loved about the Hokas -- has a nice wide toebox, but without allowing your foot to swim around in the shoe. I'm afraid I'm a little on the fence about the zero drop; definitely felt it a little when running, but wasn't an issue walking. Overall a great ride, and a worthy replacement.

These pants offer a great blend of comfort with a touch of compression. They aren't as supportive as CW-X tights I've owned in the past, but they are far more comfortable to wear. However, they still feel like they are working to support muscles and joints. If you're not a fan of the stuffed sausage feel of serious compression tights, these are a good choice.

Everything looks so clear! I've used these for two weeks and they haven't fogged up once -- that tends to degenerate after a while, but I have hopes. I've been a Speedo goggle wearer for forever, and I was very pleasantly surprised by how comfortable these are. A great fit with no digging.

Once I got my first pair of wool running socks, I was sold. Wool is pretty much all I want to wear now, it's just so much more comfortable than anything else. I picked up a couple of pairs of these and they've been great ... heavy enough to provide some extra warmth on cold says, but not too bulky.

First tried on out on a hot, sweaty run -- and gave the box away when I got back. The honey taste is just too much in those conditions -- fruit-flavored stuff just seems to go down better. On the other hand, that one pack I did choke down did seem to do a good job of keeping me going, so if you like the taste it's a great choice.

This bladder seems to work well, and I certainly can't argue with how easy the wide opening makes filling and cleaning, but I did have issues on a recent race that was a 7-mile MTB climb. I nearly passed out trying to suck the water out of the bladder--the choice was either to stop and hold it overhead, or go without. I don't know if I did something wrong, or was just sucking too much wind to be able to pull the water, but it was disappointing. I'm going to give it another try to see if I can figure it out.

I bought a couple of these to replenish the family supply of biking gloves, which was looking pretty distressed. These are a definite upgrade -- even at this low price they're great all-around gloves. Comfortable to wear, and enough (but not too much) padding. I ended up appropriating one pair for myself.
