I took the wife to the mall and she tried on a pair of the Oakley Feedbacks. Based on the reaction, I know I would soon be ordering a pair for her. These give off the style she was looking for, and she’s said they are comfortable to wear even on longer drives.
They are dark enough so the eyeballs are not fully visible looking into the lens, but without the reflective coating popular on traditional aviators. I was told this combination is harder to find. So, look no further! We went with the polished gold (which they didn’t have at the mall), and she is able to pair them with 94% of her outfits.
I agree with Kirk in that this product isn’t an athletic fit. I’ve found this to be the case with most The North Face jackets with exception of their specific product lines such as Steep Series or Summit Series. I generally wear a large, but for this particular jacket the medium fits me well (6ft 185lbs). These jackets are well suited for folks with a wider or muscular build, and they can probably support a moderate beer belly with the traditional size you wear (alternatively for under jacket layering). If you are tall and slender, you may be better off with the athletic North Face lines, or going for another brand that better supports your body type.
If you get the fit right, this jacket is solid. Comfy, stylish, light, and it warms well given the weight. I’ve felt comfortable wearing this as an outer layer in 30 degree weather, but anything below that, you will probably prefer slapping on another layer for comfort.
I'm a huge fan of the these Chino Shorts. I first picked up a pair of the Faded Army, and then went back for the Silver. These no frills shorts have everything you need and nothing you don't. Good, comfy, slightly longer fit, which is expected from Volcom. Not for hanging out at the yacht club, but almost any other scenario you should be in good shape.
New for Fall 2014. Cool and casual come together in the 22-inch Frickin Plaid Chino Short. This is classic chino simplicity at its finest with a relaxed fit that sits slightly below the waist back welt pockets side pockets belt loops and a zip fly. style looks good on the beach or after hours. Machine wash with like colors tumble dry low low iron as needed.
In short, these boots are awesome - Light, Stylish, Comfy. The stated medium flex is right on par with my experiences with the boot. The dual BOA system perfects boot tightening with even distribution.
These boots have been comfortable for me since the first day of riding, and the velcro liner features make removing the boot very easy after a long day of riding. Highly recommended!
I had a similar issue with these bindings as Julien shared. My previous pair of boots were outdated and had a very squishy toe, which compressed and quickly un-ratcheted the bindings when attempting to tighten.
I used a small screwdriver to pull on the ratchet spring which led to tightening up the clamp-down. Haven't had any locking problems since my fix, but certainly less than I would expect from a well known Binding Manufacturer such as Union.
Overall decent binding for a good price, but Union needs to take a closer look at the springs used for the binding clamp-down.
Take this review with a grain of salt, as I actually returned these boots before use. I compared these to the FLOW HYLITE BOA SNOWBOARD BOOT, and these lost only slightly to the Flow boots based on my personal fit preference.
I really liked how quickly I was able to get in and out of the boot, and how the dual BOA allows for a quick and balanced foot lock down.
If I only would have tried these I would have kept them. But....I tried-on the Flow Boots and couldn't bare to give them up. The Salomon boots were second choice due to the slightly stiffer feel, and less padding than the Flow boot. Good overall feel and stylish look.
I knew I was going to love these goggles after the first run. The size can be intimidating when you first try them on, but the comfort and peripherals, will make you never take em off!
I bought these to fit my recently purchased Union bindings on a Burton board with the channel system. Fits like a dream. I'd give five stars, but they're binding disks......nothing dramatically exciting here.
This is a great standard RVCA polo shirt. If you like rockin the polo, then I highly recommend the Sure Thing polo shirt. Being 60% cotton, it's light and stretchy, not rigid and starchy as some of the full polyester shirts.
These are my new everyday sunglasses. They're light, sleek and sit well on the face. I dig em'.
I have gone through multiple pairs of these shoes, and I still love em. I wouldn't recommend skating in them, because you will rip through the fabric after a few ollies. But if you are looking for a stylish, comfy shoe, these are the way to go.
Just need to improve durability to get a 5-Star from me.
