Familiarity: I've used it several times

I tried them out while in we were just in Hawaii and I was blown away with how great they were initially. But, and it is a really big but.. I kept them in a cloth Oakley oversized sunglass bag so they wouldn't get scratched, I tried them on after four days of periodic use and the polarization mirrored finish literally looked like it had been wiped off the left lens. The right one was still perfect, but the left one was gone. It wasn't scratched, it just looks like the finish got wiped off.
Was it possible some sunscreen product got on the lens? Maybe.
I might try to reach out to the company and see what they say, but the reason for getting the polarization is because you will be using them in the sun and when you are in the sun, you should use some sort of sunscreen.

If it wasn't for that issue, I'd be giving these goggles a glowing review. At this point.. They are kinda garbage with the one lens off from the other.

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

I am blown away by Adidas sock shoes. I have toe pressure issues and their sock shoes feel like just wearing socks. I was so impressed that I decided to get a pair for my wife, but I was worried that they wouldn't give her enough support for the way she runs. I spoke to a sales gal and she told me that these are the most supportive running shoes Adidas makes. I was kinda perplexed as I am holding the thing, able to twist and fold the shoe with almost zero effort. "Really?"
I told my wife the same thing, as she is holding the shoe and thinking the same thing as me. She tried them out and was amazed at the comfort and support these shoes give. They have become her favorite shoe and that is why I bought more for her in different colors from Backcountry.

I would recommend these sock style shoes for anyone and I am not a huge Adidas fan.

I bought one of these for my wife, she likes to have ice cold water through the night. Her other bottles she would use would melt out with the ice she puts in her water. I saw these and thought I would give it a shot. Well, besides her saying.. " Don't we have enough bottles?" I told her this was different and I thought it would help keep things cold. Plus, the screw top lid makes adding ice cubes really easy, the spout is super nice and has been updated from their past bottles.
What I find interesting.. I will see the bottle the following day and even by evening the next night before she refills it, it will still have ice sloshing around from the night before.
I would recommend these bottles for any sort of road trip, or camping trip. Hell, I want replace our other camelbak bottles with these for our trips to Hawaii and drinks at the beach.

My only concern.. The plastic hinge at the small spout. I have seen plastic get folded back and forth, even if it is fiber reenforced, finally come apart after being well used. I am sure camelbak has replacement lids, but as murphy's law has proven.. Things seem to fail at the worst possible times. With that being said.. In the house, or at the beach is one thing, taking something that is more intricate than a basic vacuum bottle with a basic screw top, seems to be asking for trouble if I am climbing and out where I don't want to be concerned about some piece going missing, or two places where a leak could spring up.

When I do Yoga.. Yeah, the best way to describe me is Chet from Weird Science when he was turned into the Pile of Chet. We look the same, I bet we even smell the same and I too feel like I am squirting out fluids from every pore on my body.

I like the mat, I am also using one of the Manduka towels on top of it. That does seem to help with giving me better stability on the mat with my excretions that are pouring off me. I tried the mat without the towel and I kinda felt like I was turning it into a slip and slide from my dripping funk.

What I did enjoy.. Others have the same mat in class. Though, I do get the same look as in the movie, when people see Chet in his Pile of Chet state for the first time. I am like,, " Hey, dudes!!" . Them.. " Is he really talking to us? Eww."

I am glad I can be cool just like all the cool people in class. You want to look the part, you have to dress the part . This mat is just the first step in being accepted as one of their own, The Yoga teacher told me I had nothing to be ashamed of with farting, or swearing in class. As she said.. " It is perfectly normal". Even as I am trying to nail child pose.

You might not be cool, collected, agile, flexible, poised, or have any clue where you may have left your Chi, or if you have ever had one, but your mat can let everyone know that you too can be just like them.

Namaste.
