Let me begin by saying I am officially a Brion shorts junkie. I bought these because the inseam was smaller than most men's shorts these days, and I hate shorts that ride over my knees. Turns out my intuition was correct (I don't know measurements well and have no fashion sense). I'm quite lean, am 5' 10" tall, and the Brion short sits comfortable an inch or two above each knee.
Not knowing what to expect from this short, I am extremely glad I gave them a try. I have ended up liking them so much that one pair was not nearly enough. I bought 4 more pair in the other two colors, and to be honest I will undoubtedly buy even more. I ended up wearing the one pair so often I wasn't even washing it and would pull it out of my dirty clothes hamper to wear it again the next day (don't tell anyone!).
So what do I like? For one, they are incredibly comfortable! The addiction of lycra makes the Brion short form to your legs and regardless of how you flex or bend you do not feel inhibited or constricted. Prana, being a company that produces yoga gear, might have had this in mind. I practice yoga myself sometimes and it's great not having to chance into different shorts for postures. The fabric is soft and pleasing to the touch, which may or may not affect your ability to attract the opposite sex. I wouldn't bank on it necessarily.
The Brion shorts breathe extremely well. Being a thin and flexible short you will need to keep your man junk safe from unnecessary impacts, but otherwise the goods tend to stay nice and dry. This was noticeable while I exercise. The short has survived lengthy rides on a bicycle in humid weather without getting drenched in sweat. Pair these with quality underwear and you're golden. The sizing is very close. I normally wear 32, sometimes with a belt or drawstring, and 32 fit very close to what I needed.
First off, the suit fits amazingly well. They are form fitting and barely feel like wearing anything once worn for a while. The suit will absolutely keep you warm under layers. Even at 20-30 degrees, wearing this under a jacket was almost too warm. The rear waist zip works great for bathroom breaks, just don't forget to zip it back up.
My neighbors may think i'm a bit strange running around the yard dressed as a ninja, but cool weather calls for comfort.
These are a pretty good plain crew shirt. As mentioned in another review, the fabric is soft and feels good. Sometimes it's hard to find a decent ordinary shirt without brand and logos plastered all over, but this shirt fits the bill nicely.
Since buying this jacket I haven't stopped wearing it for long at all. I am completely satisfied with nearly ever detail.
The materials are both durable and insulate well. I love the fur on the inside, the magnetic arm pocket (pocket connoisseurs look out!), the cool drawstrings, etc. Everything is purposefully designed and looks pretty great to boot.
Admittedly the jacket is slightly on the larger side, but so far no complaints there. Just keep in mind you will feel well sheltered by this jacket's bulk. Maybe not for those who want a lighter jacket to wear.
I have also taken a nap in the jacket and it was pure, warm, cozy bliss.
Been waiting to rough these up a little before reviewing. I bought these for something to wear on the concrete at work, and while the fit was a little tight at first, they have since surprised me. This is quite a comfortable shoe. Having spent a while running in minimalist shoes I expected an awkward transition to the MM II. I don't seem to have much trouble on my forefoot in them. The sole is super aggressive and feels secure on loose terrain. The quality of the shoelaces also stood out a lot and i'm not entirely sure why. They feel nice and are easy to tie. All in all, great shoe so far and I have a new appreciation for Montrail.
