Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

We decided to get the Flex for our kids and my wife has one as well. It has been a great way for the kids to understand how much they are or are not moving during the day. It is awesome to see them interested in how much activity, sleep, water, etc they are getting each day. In fact, having the kids wear the flex has made us more aware of their sleep quality. Something that kids don't often report on themselves. After the first night our older son's sleep data was eye opening. He was having very restless sleep. We had no idea and are very thankful we started using the flex so that we can try to help him improve his sleep quality.

The flex is more basic than other fitbits but it is perfect for our purposes. It does not track floors climbed or monitor heart rate. They are sleek, water resistant, has at least a 5 day battery life, sync easily with the app and seem very accurate.

Also appreciate how it comes with a small and large size band in each box.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have put about 12 miles on these shoes and I wanted to share my initial impressions. First, don't be afraid of the weight and volume. These shoes are as light as any running shoe I have worn and the volume is not noticeable after about 15 minuntes. The broad base has help me improve my overall strike profile, but that is also a function of moving to a 4mm drop (this shoe) from a 10mm drop Asics Kayano.
The shoe fits true to size - I typically wear a 10.5 or 11 and it really is a function of width. I have really wide feet, especially in the forefoot area so I went with the 11 and it fits well.

The shoes come with a quick lace system as well as traditional laces and both function well.

I have run on both asphalt and rocky root-filled trails and the grip is sufficient for both.

I will check in later after about 100 miles of use for a more thorough review

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I did an unhealthy amount of research on hitch mount bike racks and I ultimately decided to splurge on the Fulltilt 4. I am glad I did. It came down to the Fulltilt and the Swingdaddy which basically means ease of installation vs. the ability to access the trunk/hatch with the bikes on the car respectively. I am very glad I went with the Fulltilt as it can be installed/uninstalled in about 20 seconds. Another benefit vs. the Swingdaddy and other accessories is the the built in lock which saves the cash for an extra accessory, but more importantly it is built in and nicely stows. I would highly recommend the tubetopper accessory or equivalent for any non straight top tube bikes (most aren't).
This rack is worth every penny

These shorts are great. I am 6'0" 180lbs with a 33/34 waist and the L is perfect. The shorts are really light with an athletic fit that suits hiking and mtn biking. The material is light and very stretchy and so far has proven durable. If you have a large arse or really large quads you may want to size up due to the athletic fit.

I am not a huge fan of straight up water so these are great for me. I use them on hikes or sometimes when I am at my desk and I can take down any more plain water. The taste is not super strong which is good because I don't want the more syrupy gatorade-like taste. Also, you don't get as strong of the salty electrolytey taste as do with other sport-type drinks. I personally like the orange and the citrus flavors the best (hard to screw up citrus). The other flavors are not bad by any means.
