A Short That Fits!!!!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Okay, so when I got this shorts I had major doubts. Bike shorts are always an issue for me... nothing ever fits and they’re always huge in the waist and tight on my thighs and they NEVER look good. These shorts proved me wrong. They fit me PERFECTLY and were so comfortable to ride in all day. These are me new favorite bike shorts and I don’t say that lightly! I also love the subtle cut detail on the thigh. Well done, Backcountry!

Comfy & Flattering
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was skeptical of the material of this riding top because it doesn’t FEEL tech-y like most of my jerseys. However, it handled 6+ hours of sweaty riding REALLY well, and kept me cool and dry and, honestly, looking good 💁🏼‍♀️ It’s way more flattering than I would’ve expected. I’m a big fan.

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

I am 5’4” and have very athletic legs. I do Crossfit as well as mountain bike and snowboard so finding bottoms (especially bike shorts) that fit my thick thighs but smaller waist is typically impossible. These shorts not only fit me but are comfortable and allow me a full range of motion (which is rare!). I’m excited to spend this mountain bike season in them.

The Watch that Does it All
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I had been eyeing Suunto watches for a while, but didn't want to commit; admittedly, I'd always owned simple, single-function watches (and loved them)...but, the prospect of tracking my heart rate during my Crossfit workouts, or my elevation on outdoor climbs, or my way home on a hike...was very tempting.

So, I got this ^ watch. And seven full days of play later... I'm in love.

I am what some might call "technologically impaired" ; yet, the functions on the Suunto are simple enough that I knew how to use [most of them] within my first day with the watch.

This watch is loaded with features...for example, I didn't know until using my Suunto, that I could pair it with my phone and receive text, call, etc notifications from my watch (useful at work when my phone is not with me).

The Suunto, in two words?: GAME. CHANGER.

I've now used my watch on a mountain bike ride, a day of bouldering outside, a Crossfit workout, a spin class, a circuit training class, and a run...and it has not disappointed. (I've also only charged it once in a full week, and it still has 30% battery power left!)

While this watch is slimmer than expected, I will say that a slightly narrower wristband would be more my style; the watch isn't bulky, but I do think the band is a bit thick.

Otherwise, no complaints whatsoever. This watch would be great for someone looking for a general, all-purpose outdoor/fitness/sport watch. It's super-loaded with features, but isn't intimidating or overwhelming. 5 stars!
