Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This jersey was a gamble, not knowing the brand, but I'm impressed! So much so that I just ordered a second to have as back up. Love the simple black design with reflective 'stars' for night riding, vented mesh armpits, and sleek fit that works for an athletic lady body (I'm 5'6" / 135, 34C, slim waist but stronger shoulders -- size M is perfect.) Like the longer short sleeves. Just wish the zipper went all the way down the front.

For the price, this Forerunner does the job. It's lightweight and sleek for a smart watch, nice simple design. (I previously had tried a Fenix 5 which felt too bulky for my lady wrist.) Multi-sport options are great; I primarily use for cycling, some hiking, backpacking, trail running, yoga and cross training. I use it daily; battery life is decent - I recharge it every 3-4 days. It has held up swimming in the ocean, through rainy bike rides and sub-zero winter backpacking expeditions. The heart rate monitor seems pretty accurate, but I've only tested that aspect while resting or recovering.

However, the BIG BIG DRAWBACK and disappointment is with its accuracy of distance. I'll track the same activity with my iPhone/ Strava and my husband's Garmin Fenix 5, and the Forerunner consistently comes up short by about 1/16 mile per mile which adds up to a considerable loss of data for longer events. Over time, it seems to have become worse. I've read all of the FAQs, guides and user forums and finally reached out to Garmin. Their technical support staff advised me to erase all activities from the watch, which was supposed to help (maybe it did a little bit), but the Garmin employee admitted it's just not as accurate of GPS as their higher-priced watches. Bummer. As I become more serious about logging training data, will probably need a more accurate device.

Great tights. Flattering it, comfy chamois, warm but breatheable. I like the little slit feature at the knees for added flexibility. They run a little long but fit is accurate for hips/bootie/thighs. I'm 5'6 and 133lbs and a Medium is perfect, just have a little extra fabric to scrunch at ankles, or hike them up hight, which is fine with me. (My friend who's a S/XS go them and had the same comments about length, but likes hers too.)

Also, I'm not sure that the comment below about they tights being "totally see through" is reviewing the right product. These are thick and not see through at all -- but maybe if differs for the other colors. I have Black with white accents.

I've had some luck with other LG ladies chamios (bib shorts, mostly) but this chamois design has too much fabric and causes some nasty rubbing. The worst problem of all, though, is the length of the knicker. I have pretty average proportions, (size S/M or 6) and the bottom of knicker lands right at the knee crease, which is terrible for cycling. The fabric ends of sorta rolling into a bunch which interferes with pedaling, no matter how much I tug and adjust while riding. Coincidentally (or not), I got some bad knee pain when I started wearing these. Alas, it's now too late to return because I threw them in the back of my drawer at end of cool season and am just now pulling out autumn kits and found them again.

Beautiful sleek design, streamlined geometry, easy on and off with BOA, simple matt grey color with smart visibility adds of subtle reflective finish for night time and pops of hot pink. Stiff, lightweight, comfortable. Haven't worn in winter or rain yet, will probably cover with thermal booties. I typically wear between 8.5 and 9; got 9 (40) and they fit well.
