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

I just picked up a pair of these in the grey/celeste with the prizm trail lens. After using Prizm skiing the last 4-5 seasons I knew thats whats up. When I saw they had a trail lens I was sold. Tried them out today on the trail and have some initial impressions. The frames themselves are pretty dope in so many ways. The frames first and foremost are incredibly light coming in @ 1.1 ounces or 31.2 grams (according to my small scale). The nose piece is super grippy keeping those frames on the bridge of my nose for a 2.5 hour ride without one adjustment that I can remember. It was hot out so I was sweating bullets, but no movement. Obviously the new Advancer nosebridge system allows you to vent your sunglasses without taking them off and still blocking sunlight. The arms are replaceable like most of Oakley products. The arms have super grips that keep them in place and are low profile allowing you to easily wear with most headwear and helmets. I paired these with a Troy Lee Designs A2 mips helmet and the were seamless. Of course the Prizm lenses are bomb. They enhance your ability to see every detail on the trail, unlike most sunglasses that mute all the details. Just sitting in my house, my kitchen is clearer than without them. Aside from this they come with the microfiber case and a hard case for travel. Now I have small head that is pretty narrow for a guy and usually need smaller framed glasses to fit my face With these they say medium to large heads, but I found these to work great for me. They are snug a ways behind my temples and have a little bit of a gap on the corners, but I feel they vented better than any of the smaller frame glasses I have purchased in the past. Obviously this is a personal preference type of thing but if you have a smaller head I would at least check them out to see what you think because they worked great for me.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this bottle after my frustrations with Patagonia's version of the double wall. What I love about this bottle is the huge mouth that accommodates even the bridge of my nose. The build is tops and when I fill it up with ice water, I still have remnants of ice 2-3 days later when left in my work backpack getting ready for the next work day. Now I do have to say, that being that there are probably hundreds of companies with knock offs, the Yeti isn't as special anymore. my buddy got a knock off for 19 dollars for the same size bottle which looks almost identical minus the YETI stamp. We filled both of our bottles up with the same amount of ice and water and checked them out periodically over a week long road trip. Both of our bottles still had some ice at almost 72 hours. That said the price tag is really hefty for the name. Other than that, the bottle does exactly what I bought it to do, and that is to keep stuff cold for a whole 12 hour shift at the hospital. If your looking for a bottle like this one, I would probably tell you unless your buying the name, there are plenty of other bottles out there that are identical to this one. As far as build and durability, this bottle doesn't dent and blemish easy like my Patagonia did. The steel is top notch. I can't say that the knock offs are as good in that category.

It seems like no one has had stitching issues like I have on here, which has got me wondering if I got a bad apple. The stitching as can be seen is completely coming undone after a 13 miler peak out on mount Evans this am. My feet felt cozy as they do in most wide toe box trail runners and no blisters is a bonus. The material is light but I had excellent rock protection from the sole plate/rock guard. I also felt like I had ample toe protection from toe kick. Other than that these like many have said are a great trail runner and can be used for fast packing and hiking on all terrains with aggressive tread on the outsoles. Like I said above, the stitching is coming out on the top inside borders of the shoes. Other than that solid shoe. Let's hope for a good 1x1 exchange and a more positive experience in the future.
