Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been using some older Fox Ranger, I like the rangers but I needed some new shorts. These are heavier duty, which I like on most days. The super hot days I'm going to need something lighter and more breathable. The pocket space is ideal.
The stretch on these is awesome I really like the way they feel.
The removable liner is a plus for me. then i don't have to wear my chammy out and about

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I used to wear some Fox freeride shoes.. bought them in '09 and they've lasted pretty well until now. The rubber was pretty good and I'd only occasionally slip off my pedal.
Finally I tried the five-ten... I should have switched sooner. The grip on these is insane. They fit true to size and I went on a 14mile single track ride to break these in and they were not uncomfortable right out of the box. I haven't had a sole problem yet, but I haven't been on any rowdy/flow trails yet. Hiking slick trails isn't ideal with these on. Climbing and going through some choppy trails and tree roots these cling to my pedal without an issue.

She was in need of a new tank to wear hiking. Also, she wanted something to wear in Moab biking. This is what I call a twofer.
Two-for-one uses. the Media pocket is nice because now I won't have to carry her phone. She is stoked on the material and the wicking properties in this tank.

This shirt is rad. The fit is awesome. the material is super comfy and this can be worn in any occasion. We bought this for the intention of biking only, but nay, this will be used for about everything possible that has to do with being active. It is a little longer too, so while she is biking it stays down to the waist.
Fits true to size.

Finally got some bike shorts for the lady. These fit great, a little lose around the hips to allow for a chamois and some flex while pedaling. The length is right at the knee. the material is super light and breathable. the pockets are deep, to carry a select item or two.
with the adjustable waist, these will be awesome to wear around when not on the trail.

6' 200lbs I bought the XL. The length is great, as it does not ride up past my waist while riding. The sleeves are a little shorter, similar to a XC style rather than freeride. The material is what is killer here, great movement and breathability. It also looks fine as a t-shirt if I wanted to wear it around on the hot summer days.

These are heavy duty gloves. Perfect for DH or some flowy trail. I don't use them if I am XC or climbing because they don't vent well, and don't have the greatest flexibility if I am in and out of bags/pockets/phone/etc. They protect if you lay down the bike and use your hand to catch you, or if you get to close to a branch.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I usually wear a 36 waist, and if I can I try to get a looser fit. So I went with the XL rather than the L. The length is fine, the material is awesome, the vents and pockets are all a plus, but the waist is super tight. buy larger than you normally wear.
