I bought one for myself months after I got the man one. I tried to love it because it was so simple to set up and use, but it just wouldn't pair with the POD. I watched the Youtube videos and checked the FAQ pages and nothing worked. The heart rate reading would also be off sometimes, for the first few minutes. I contacted Suunto, but their customer service is non-existent. Thankfully, Backcountry has an excellent return policy and I opted to return for an exchange.

2nd time around and this thing works! I love having a relatively small watch tracking my progress as a trail run or ride. I don't even notice the POD, but it tracks the mileage accurately, as opposed to some apps out there (imap). I'm giving it a 4 because of the Backcountry service and this second set works flawlessly.

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

I got it for my hubby who uses it on hikes and road rides. So far, he likes it, but has noticed that when he hikes with the dogs (rambunctious and leashed) the buttons somehow get pushed and the program is stopped. Other than that, no complaints. It's light and easy to use and I got a price match from Backcountry. Their customer service rocks, as usual.

I've worn helmets made by Bell, Giro and LAS. Prior to the Trabec Race, I was sporting a Xen. It stayed on, but didn't fit quite right on my head. I had to tighten it down quite a bit on the rocky dh and loosen it up for the uphills to get blood flow.After a year and half of this ride ritual, I decided to use my coupon code and scored one of these babies.

This the best half lid I've ever had. The straps were the easiest to adjust and the retention system did its job. Best of all, it fit like a glove. I didn't have to overtighten it to keep it from jostling around on the rocky descents.

I wear a S in Giro and got a XS-S Trabec Race. So far, can't complain about a thing.

This was my first pair of Luna shorts. Bought them because of the reviews and the price slash. They fit great and the chamois felt right on a grueling and unrelenting 2 1/2 hour climb. The fabric feels great and vented well on a warm SoCal day. I love the wide waistband. Luna was spot on with these shorts. Outstanding fit, comfort and eye catching in a good way.

I've got quite a few mountain bike shorts (Descente, Fox, Sombrio, Zoic) and decided to try these since my buddy raved about the Men's version.

These shorts get first dibbs when I go for a ride. There's a softness to the fabric that makes it feel good on the skin. I'm 5'4" 125/130 and the small fits perfect with a little room to spare for comfort of movement. The rise is just below the navel up font and has anti-crack rise in the rear. The length just covers my knees.

The rear pocket holds my cell during a ride and the front pockets stash gel packs. The belt loops allow me to attach my camera on my belt for quick access. The thigh vents kinda work. The mesh liner is the softest, thinnest I've tried and the padding was good enough for a couple of hours on the saddle.

Looks great lounging around after a ride, too!
