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

This is a nice little pull buoy. Slightly more aerodynamic and feels a little more comfortable. I can't say that it is essential by any means, but I like it better than the classic floats that are common to public pools. Not sure how much more you can innovate on a pretty simple piece of gear.

I purchased this board to mix things up in the pool. It is slightly less buoyant than the typical kick board and rocks a little side to side when kicking since it is slightly rounded on the bottom. This is supposed to be better for your form. I can't speak to that, but I enjoy using it. I can stretch out a bit more, and it is comfortable. Not life changing, but a nice product that distinguishes itself from the boards that you are probably accustomed to.

Like most reviewers, I find these shoes to be incredibly comfortable. I use them for occasional running as well as an everyday shoe. Pretty stylish and very light. Hard to find something to complain about. I can't speak to how well they would hold up if you were a distance runner, but for everyday use, these are terrific shoes.

I am pretty rigorous about monitoring my heart rate when training on a bike or running, but I have never been able to track it in the pool. I am hoping this will solve the problem. Just purchased it; so I will need to report back on the effectiveness.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I like to keep either these gels or some chews in my jersey for emergency energy at the end of a long ride. I like both the strawberry banana and the chocolate (which tastes like cake batter). They can be a little messy if you are not careful, but they go down really easily, and you can feel the sugar hit pretty quickly. Note that some of these are caffeinated, and some are not, which might make a difference for you.

These are my favorite bars for long rides. I tend to try to balance nutrition between liquid calories and some type of bar for rides over two hours. These taste pretty good, have plenty of calories, and don't sit heavy in the stomach. I have never had any problems digesting them on the road, which I can't say about a lot of other bars I have tried. I like some of the flavors more than others but am generally very happy with these and always keep one in the jersey.

I always keep a pack of these in back of my jersey. A nice, mellow orange flavor - pretty easy to chew while riding, and they can make a huge difference at the end of a long ride when you need a boost. The only downside is that I generally don't use an entire pack, and they tend to get a little hard if not consumed a few days after opening. The hard ones still work in a pinch, however!

I use this primarily for evening rides when I am concerned about not beating the sun back. 1000 lumens may be a little overkill for biking on the road, but it does give great visibility, and I am sure the cars can see from a long ways out. The rear light seems to work well. Probably the most important in terms of safety on the road. I keep that one on for every ride. Very happy overall.

This is a neat little solution for those who don't have access to a compressor but who want to convert to tubeless bike tires. I failed several times on my mountain bike tires with a standard pump then purchased this little beauty. It is pretty small (about 15"), seems solid and well-made, and, most importantly, it works. High pressure airflow without a compressor, and it is very portable, as well.
