Great quality, as you might expect from I/O.
Mine was actually 96% merino, 4% elastane.
Machine wash gentle, dry flat or hang.
Seems to run a bit large compared to the size chart..
Zipper is bass-ackward, but who can't deal with that?
Made in China.
This is my favorite softshell. Very versatile.
After using this for a while, I ordered a TNF apex softshell. Upon its arrival I laughed and sent it back. No comparison in material quality. This is thicker and softer.
165lbs 5'9" and the medium fits great with room for a layer or two.
The first time I slipped these on I was shocked at how comfortable they were.
Fit is true to size, maybe a smidge on the small side because of the rubber toe. I find rubber tips on shoes are less forgiving so you notice the end of the shoe if you are borderline sizes. The sole is very grippy. Pretty lightweight. I like them for kicking around. Should help me achieve maximum footing on the random chinchilla hunt.
I hate sandals/flip-flops with a passion. I've just never gotten on board with that style, and never care to. However, I'm headed for a beach vacation and needed a pair. I've only heard great things about Reefs so I decided to give them a shot.
I'm keeping them and I think that speaks for itself. If not, here's why:
I like the grippy sole so you dont break your ass poolside.
I like the soft foot strap so it doesn't chafe my delicate footsies.
I like the supportive yet semi-soft footbed.
I like the fact they are light and compact (minimal packaging too).
I like the stickers they include to make some (undecided) target a Reef advertisement. (The cat is a contender)

I was having problems with shin splints and these were suggested by my orthopedic specialist. (Their office makes also custom orthotics). It was explained to me these correct cases of arch collapse but not much with heel movement. With a combination of leg strengthening exercises and icing these pretty much fixed my shin splints. After wearing them for a while in my running shoes as well as my work shoes, I started to miss them when I wasn't wearing them.
The "molding" really only mildly dents the top layer of foam, I don't know how much different this is than just wearing them and letting them mold to your foot like any other footbed.
If you are on your feet all day in work boots, etc. you might want to look at their thicker insoles, as these are not the softest things out there. Just so you understand what these are, they are a layer of hardish plastic with a high arch, covered in a thin (1.6mm) layer moldable of foam.
These definitely require a high volume shoe/boot.
