Size wise, I am 5'11", 155lbs and found the Large to fit best. I also tried on a Medium, which would fit as a street jacket, but didn't have the range of motion I like.
This jacket is like a 2:1. You get the polyfill outer with a built in cotton flannel inner. Overall it makes for a decently warm jacket. Wear this with a hoodie underneath (another reason I went large), and you better hope it is in the 20s. Otherwise you'll be sweating your face off.
I can't say enough great things about this jacket. Comes with two buttoned chest pockets and 2 hidden zipper side pockets. One of the hidden pockets has a media pocket with a small hole for running headphones internally.
DWR wise the waterproofing is get for slightly wet conditions. While it isn't "waterproof" I didn't have to worry about snow melting on me and then into the jacket. It just repelled off and stayed dry.
Only possible downside with this jacket, which overall I don't mind at all, is it opens and closes with real buttons. It isn't as quick as snaps, but they do look good. Overall the holes break in and it isn't a big deal.
I am 5'11", 155lbs and I found the Large to be the right size. I tried on the medium as well, but it restricted movement. Overall, I think this jacket serves 2 purposes, one well and one ok:
If you need a light layer for under your shell. This jacket will insulate well under a shell. Overall it is pretty thin, so it won't get in the way. It also makes a great lightweight standalone for skating etc.
As a light stand alone jacket. This does have a DWR coating, which combined with the polyester outer will shred water ok. I won't call it waterproof, but its ok. My problem with this application is that this jacket is very thin, compared to similar option. It also has no zippered pockets for iphone, keys etc. If I'm out skating that is all good, but for riding I need that protection. I think for the extra $10 in price, the 32 Anchor Joe Sexton jacket destroys this one. It is warmer, has multiple zips, medium pockets etc, and just feel higher quality. This is why I am giving this jacket 3 stars. I've seen the other options and this one doesn't quite match up.
These are my go to pants for this season. Feature wise, I like that these have 5 pockets, all of which are zippered. They also have extra long legs. I don't have exact measurements, but I know I hate it when the legs are too short. For reference, I am 5'11", 155lbs and went Medium. I could have probably fit small in the waist, but I like a little room for layering.
Otherwise, the fabric on these pants in easy to move around in. The fit is slim, but not nut hugging tight like some other pants.
This bag is basic and great. Here is a picture of the inner liner.
One thing I can't stand when riding are noise canceling ear bids. For this reason I have almost exclusively used ipod/iphone ear buds for the past few years. When my last pair fell apart I needed a replacement and tried these out. They sound just as good and fit well too. A great replacement. If you hate noise canceling like me, get a pair.
My favorite feature of these shorts is the stretchy fabric. They move easy with you. Otherwise, they are what you would expect them to be. Waist seemed true to size, as well.
After wrecking a Nixon in the water, I wanted something less expensive that wouldn't disappoint me with its waterproofing. After searching around, I decided on the Freestyle Leash Shark. This watch brings back youthful memories of snap bracelets and wrist fanny packs. It is a cool wrist accessory and it does what it is supposed to do: tell time, date, and other functions in an efficient fashion.
Other notes I would make is that the velcro works. I was skeptical at first. The only downside would be the awkward back light. It is cool in a retro way, but not incredibly functional. I have posted a picture of it on.
All said, I would recommend this watch for anyone who either like the looks of it or needs a less expensive water watch.
While I love this watch, the one downside is the backlight. It works but it isn't easy to read the time.
I like this hat. I have the desert blue and it basically looks how it does in the pictures. One cool feature is that the back strap is leather instead of the normal nylon
Fit wise, this hat run on the medium to shallow side.
In addition the blue is 100% cotton, made in bangladesh
This piece is basically a 1mm neoprene top in the front and back, and a rash guard in the sides and arms. It will give you a little bit more warmth than a standard rash guard.
One thing I really liked on this is the length. This is a few inches longer than other rash guards I have used. In addition, there is zipper closure in the back and the bottom hem is pretty solid, to keep this from riding up on you.
Fitting seemed true to size
These are the perfect goggles if you want something basic and straight forward. They are flexible and functional. In addition, I found them to fit slightly on the smaller side
I liked the fabric on these shorts. It uses a stretchy slightly heavier fabric. The weight is nice, because the shorts feel substantial. The sublimated graphic is pretty sharp as well.
Other important notes is that these come down to above the knee. They are more of a vintage fit. Waist was true to size
If you are looking for an average length/fit, stretchy set of board shorts, look no further. The stretch helps out, when you're out in the water and don't want to be limited by your movement. I use these for wakeboarding and they're great. Waist size is true, as well.
This suit is great for colder water. Size-wise, the size chart seems to be on point. Check it out
