Garmin Fenix 2

date: September 19, 2014
review by: tcj103

This is a highly versatile multisport watch/GPS. Moving up from the 310XT, I now have more than a stopwatch when I'm in the pool, I can sync workouts right afterward using my smartphone, and get running dynamics as well (as soon as I figure out what the numbers mean). Update September 2014: It's worked well, and I've been wearing it as a daily watch, which is a nice convenience so I always have it ready to go. Battery life in watch mode has been great, and I haven't gotten any comments about it's size as a "watch".

Play Harder 110% Double-Life Shin/Calve Sleeves

date: August 4, 2014
review by: LundyLund
(4.3)

These sleeves have been a great tool for recovery from long runs. We all know the benefits of compression socks, but 110% sleeves have the bonus of allowing the insertion of ice packs. The inner lining of the sleeve protects the skin from extreme cold, but the leg benefits from a lack of space between the ice/sleeve and the leg. These have made a big difference in my recovery from long runs.

FitBit Flex

date: July 20, 2014
review by: hoffsquared
(3.8)

I received the FitBit Flex as a gift. It seems to measure 'activity level' fairly accurately even if it only reports out in steps or calories expended. I think it is best used in combination with tracking your caloric intake.



I track my calories fairly well during the day and then slack off for dinner. With the FitBit and before dinner calorie tracking, I can get an idea if I can have that after dinner snack or not.



The data is pretty basic but, in conjunction with calorie intake tracking...this is a worthwhile little device.

i have completely fallen in love with the PI eMotion line of shoes. They are natural feeling, yet protective and supportive, too. Going sockless is tooo easy.

Check them out. Great customer service, good construction, with a couple minor things such as the nose hook and the hydration module hiccups, this is still a great saddle!

A little expensive, but the cushioning makes it worth it if you run a lot on the streets or sidewalks.

A very good pair of running or just every day shoes. I've used this type for training for a half marathon as well as cycling, lifting, and playing in the yard.

TYR Ear Plugs

date: June 30, 2014
review by: AugustaTiger
(4.4)

I tried many different types of ear plugs, but they all had issue with leakage or staying put. The TYR ear plugs work great! You dont have to push them in far and they stay put. Plus you can re-use them over and over. Great for my small ear canal.

Speedfil Z4

date: June 23, 2014
review by: Clempson
(4.1)

It's works. It holds a bottle and attaches your Garmin. I like it a lot better than the other Speedfil options out there, but for racing I have reverted back to just zip tieing a cage and using a garmin mount between the aero bars at the shifters since the profile is much lower and I don't risk losing any fluids or possibly a bottle. It is a very clean design and if you don't leave your bottles open like I do this could be a perfect solution for you.

Specialized Keg

Great product. It's a small compact container to carry a flat kit or any other items which will fit into it and is the same diameter as a water bottle so you can put it in an extra cage you have. I use mine in a single cage behind my saddle. Very clean design and much easier to get things in and out of than a saddle bag. The version that comes with the flat kit sleeve even has an extra storage area in the lid for tire patches.

Brooks Transcend

This is definitely a different feel for a shoe. I think some people will love it. Others, including me, do not. It's worth giving them a shot. However, I think they are for someone with minimal pronation issues as I don't think they controlled my moderate pronation.
