User reviews

Last year's Under Armour Heat Gear Sonic Long Sleeve Shirts were definitely a five star product. However, I think this year's model is not as good.To be absolutely clear, in my opinion this is still probably the best compression shirt available on the market. In this area, Under Armour is still outpacing other brands like Nike by a *long* shot. The shirts are true compression, the materials wicks sweat really well, the size and cut are good, and the raglan sleeve style looks a lot nicer than standard sleeves.I dropped a few stars however, because I feel like this is a case of trying to fix a product that isn't broken. Last year's line was perfect and none of the changes in this year's line are improvements. There seem to be two major changes:1) Contrast color stitching was added as a design element:The old shirts were all one solid color, whereas these shirts have weird lines of brightly colored stitches running down the sides, chest and inside of the arms. This is pretty annoying because most other lines of Under Armour compression shirts have gone the direction of gaudy designs and patterns (I'm an adult so I don't want to look like a superhero, walking UA billboard, or pretend soldier). The major appeal of this line has been the clean and neat look. These shirts were originally meant to be a functional base layer, so I'd prefer to keep them looking this way. The extra ornamentation is unnecessary and even distracting when you pair them with parts of another uniform with its own design pattern.2) A different more mesh like material is used on the inside and underside of the arms:I guess the idea here was that this material would make these areas more breathable and less restrictive. It's a good idea in theory, and it might do that, but I don't really notice. What I do notice is that it compromises the compression of the shirt in and around these areas. Particularly after you've started sweating. It also makes the shirt just feel more 'substantial'. Which is not a good thing, since the shirt should feel like a second skin. In short, the trade off isn't worth it.3) Ok, I only said two, but I also prefer the neckline from last year's model, this one feels too big.To repeat though, these are probably still the best compression shirts on the market. I've tried a good amount of brands and haven't encountered anything that comes close.For anyone curious about sizing, I am 5'11.5" and 157 lb. I have a slender muscular build with significant tapering from shoulders to waist. I prefer a very tight fit and wear a Small. I used to wear a medium but I noticed that after 3 washes, these shirts tend to loosen up slightly (you won't notice when you first put them on, but after you start sweating post-3rd wash you'll notice). So a used small ends up fitting like a brand new medium when actually in use. If you're my size, Small is the way to go for real compression and Medium is good if you prefer something slightly more comfortable and easier to put on. In either case the arm length and torso length seem fine.Oh yeah, also I wash these in cold and line dry, but I've thrown them in a dryer on high before and they didn't shrink.
Great shirt while I had it.. I lost it though, or more likely it was stolen... not a day goes by that I don't mourn the loss of this shirt.. once I'm able to move on emotionally, I plan on buying a few more to replace it... But I just don't know if I'm ready, emotionally or financially.
I'll start by saying, I do NOT handle heat well when standing outside in direct sunlight. I sweat, a lot.It fits very snugly, as it's supposed to. The material is very light. It feels like a second skin, which I generally HATE, but once it started to heat up, I could immediately see the benefit and I was very happy to have it on. At 2pm in the afternoon, again, blasted with sun, 109 degrees F with heat index, I was the only photographer still on the track. Everyone thought I was nuts.I bought this because I can stand on a race track for 8-10 hours straight in direct sunlight and normally, with a T-Shirt, I would be absolutely burnt to a crisp and drenched in sweat. I've experienced heat fatigue symptoms standing in lower temperatures, drinking gallons of water and gatorade.I bought this to keep the sun off of me. I will say it does an AMAZING job keeping me cool. I can still feel heat from the sun, but I'm not getting roasted. I sweat, but not as much. The wind cools me right off.This is a god-send and I will likely order another 1 or 2 for multi-day track events!

Like iphone 11 Pro, Macbook Pro, Airpad Pro; the "Pro" denotes a higher end product.Compared to the Airpods (version 2) highest end model (with wireless charging case*); the Airpods Pro is $50 more MSRP.Compared to the non wireless case version it's $90 more*Airpods Pro does have wireless charging case by default. Only one version.Let's go through the differences1. Physical Appearance:Shorter Stem, but larger bud or headThere's a large black airflow grillA mic inside and outside the AirpodsCase is same thickness, a lot wider, but shorter. Still uses lighting cable to charge, but it does come with a lighting to USB-C cable2. In-ear, instead of on-earIf your ear has a small cavum and the original airpods fit perfectly, then the Airpads Pro may be a tight fit/more uncomfortable, but seeing the in-ear design, the ear piece will go into the ear canal and the rest will float in place.Those with normal or larger cavum it'll fit well.Some may not like the ear piece going into their ear canalThese ear phones are more for a closed environment than an open oneSeeing that it's an in-ear design, you may feel this hollow air effect going on unless you turn on transparency mode (more on this later) or play music with active noise cancelling onSeeing that it's in-ear, it has a tighter grip, better for joggers, those who shake their head around a lot for some reason, or if you run up stairs often. If you have an intense workout regimen and/or do extreme sports and not mindful it still can fall outThere's a Ear Tip Fit Test on app. There's several ear tips in box. When you turn on this feature in app it'll calibrate and suggest what ear tips are best listening experience for youIf you lose the tips or get them dirty overtime, you can go to the Apple store and get replacement pair for around $4 or get cheaper 3rd party ones when they come out3. Squeeze instead of tapInstead of tapping on the earbuds, you are pinching or squeezing the stem.1x to play, pause, and answer calls2x to skip forward tracks3x to skip back tracksPress and hold to switch between active noise cancel and transparency modeStill able to say "Hey Siri" to do voice commands/adjust volume anytimeNo physical volume controls on buds4. Battery lifeBattery life varies depending on how far away you are from the device and volume you set. Battery depreciation over time. These are just rough estimatesPro in general has 4.5 listening time with active noise cancelling or transparency on. Airpods version 2 has 5 hours. Note Airpod version 2 does not have active noise cancelling or transparency mode. You can get 5 hours with noise cancelling and transparency off, but most likely you're not going to unless you're really desperate for batteryPro has 3.5 talk time. Airpods have 3 hoursCase both old 24 hours battery lifePro: 5 mins in case = 1 hour talk or listen time. Airpods 15min in case = 3 hours listen, 2 hours talk5. Water/sweat resistantNow you can go to the gym and do cardio with them on.As mentioned before, tighter grip seeing that it's in-earMay survive light rain. Do not recommended going in the shower or dunk in the pool with it though 6. Active noise cancellation, Transparency modeAirpods pro has 3 modes: Active noise cancellation, off and Transparency modeActive nose cancellation tries to block out outside noise while listening to music. I'd say it drowns out may 70%. If you focus to outside or aren't focused to music; you still may be able to pick out what's going on, but in general it does it's job.Off is just like the standard in-ear headphones, but with the hollow air sound when no music is playingTransparency mode. The black airflow grills let in outside sound so you're able to hear both outside sound and music same time. Think of it as open ear headsets.Unlike some in-ear headsets the black airflow grills prevent you from hearing yourself in your head when you talk7. Sound QualityBetter than the previous version seeing the active noise cancelling and in-ear with more focused sound direcly into your ear canal. It's not $250 audiophile quality sound. Better quality sound in lows and mids compared to non-pro version. If you ever tried the Power Beats Pro, it sound very similar to thoseYou can hear callers better in a noisy environment and less likely raise your voice--Conclusion:Other than that, all other features are the same. Meant to be used on Apple devices. Very good ease of use for Apple users, and is in-style these days (shows social status). Sound quality is better that the non-PRO version, and you do get noise cancellation. There are other headphones that do it better sound in this price range, but may not be as convenient with pairing to Apple devices.
 Edit after 1 month:This is popular in North America, and wearing it has become a fashion. I think it is the best electronic product after iPhone and Echo in the past 10 years.iPhone 4 Steve Jobs 2010Echo Jeff Bezos 2014Airpods Pro Tim Cook 20191. It is suitable for sports enthusiasts. Airpods Pro has a new anti-sweat function, so you don't have to worry about sweat damaging the headphones during exercise. Noise reduction function can isolate external sounds, so you can enjoy music at the same time2. Battery life. I tested the battery box for about 16 hours, and the headset has less than 5 hours. The noise reduction function may consume more power.3. It's not suitable for sleeping. When you wake up, you may find headphones everywhere. In addition, when the power is off, the beep is very annoying. It is recommended that friends who want to sleep use sleep earplugs.4, I found that the low-frequency sound quality will be more impactful and fuller than Airpods 2, but the overall sound quality is not much different from Airpods2Old review:I give this product 4 stars. I got this product before Black Friday and have been using it for 10 days. Here is my experience using headphonesAppearance: 3 stars1.The surface feel is the same as the previous two generations, and it is easy to scratch. It is recommended to buy a third-party protective case or a charging case with a protective case.2.Portability personally feels better than the previous two generations, because the appearance is flatter and the earstems are shorter3. There are three sizes of earbuds. The default is medium size. The little ears are still a bit painful after wearing them for a long time. Changing the trumpet is much better. The silicone sleeve is not easy to remove and replace. In addition, the silicone of the earphones is a bit smelly.4. Uneven gaps are found in the charging case. I don't think there should be any problems with the workmanship of the product at this price, so the appearance is only 3 stars.Comfort: 4 stars1. In-ear AirPods Pro is not as comfortable as non-in-ear AirPods.2. At present, it has been about 40 hours with earphones. It is said that there are stomata to regulate air pressure, so there will be no pressure in the ear for a long time. Ear pressure balance is better than Bose3. AirPods Pro will have better air tightness to the ears. Sony WH1000XM3 will have some air leakage, but Sony WH1000XM3 is a headphone. Among in-ear active noise cancelling headphones, AirPods Pro may be the smallest and integrated The highest degree and the most complete function4, running without worrying about falling, squat without worrying about pressing the neck. Its presence is much stronger than AirPods. You ca n’t expect to wear it for a long time like AirPods before. You will forget its existence. In fact, it will always support your ears to remind you of its existence. One advantage is that compared to AirPods, AirPods Pro is stronger and harder to drop. For sports-loving users, AirPods Pro will be more suitable for you.5 stars1. Active noise reduction is the biggest difference between Pro and AirPods 2. AirPods Pro has three noise reduction modes, namely noise reduction on, off, and transparent mode. The official said that Apple ’s innovation in transparent mode, but I see other brands (Samsung, Sony) The headset also has a similar function.2, AirPods Pro's noise reduction is not as good as Sony WH1000XM3 on-ear noise reduction headphones, but it is the best among real wireless headphones. As for how to achieve such an obvious noise reduction effect in such a small volume, I don't understand. The intuitive feeling is that the noise reduction effect is obvious.3, I can feel quite quiet on the road, so it is strongly recommended to use noise reduction off or transparent mode on the road.Sound quality 4 starsThe AirPods Pro's sound quality has not been significantly improved compared to the previous generation of AirPodsSummary: This is an excellent headset. If you value the noise reduction function more, it is suitable for you. But if you are more concerned about the sound quality and have no need for noise reduction, I suggest you buy AirPods 2, because AirPods 2 is cheaper. In addition, the charging box and headphones must not be lost, the official charging box and headphones accessories are expensive
With the new transparency mode, I can listen to music knowing that I will never be ran over by a car on the street again. Another W for Tim Cook and the boys

Oh. My. God. Shut the front door and slap your grandma. Hold on tight because these jeans are gonna get you pregnant. I’m too hot, call the police AND the fireman. Songs immortalize fantastic behinds and if you’ve never felt like the subject of those songs then buy these jeans and buckle up! You’re about to feel like a honkytonk badonkadonk, baby got back, fat bottomed girls, and your anaconda is about to make girls go, “oh my gawd, Becky!”Now that the funny part of this review is over... shut up and buy these jeans. Buy ten pairs because Lord knows as soon as you find a pair of jeans you like you’ll never find them again. I am 4’11” tall, 173 lbs, 45” hips, 33” waist (definitely pear shaped), and I can never - I mean NEVER - find jeans that fit me. These are the right length. They fit my hips. They don’t gap at my waist. And this inner tummy slimming panel? Oh sweet baby cheezus YES. I have a two year old, an awesome mom pouch, and a healthy love of bread. These jeans make me look even better than I did before I grew another human being. Literally ditching every other pair of jeans I have and stocking my entire wardrobe with these.
These are absolutely amazing!!! The reviews were great, but I was still skeptical because I have a very hard time finding jeans that fit well and are comfortable. These are amazing!!! I carry the majority of my extra weight in my stomach and despise any type of pants that cause muffin top, so I tend to order bigger rather than smaller to avoid that. The result is usually pants that won’t stay up and I am constantly pulling them up all day. These are perfect! They are pull on, so no buttons or zippers. And they somehow stay up, yet are not too tight in the waist. No muffin top, and no falling down. The legs are snug but very comfy. And they are flattering. A miracle! I am going back to buy the darker color right now!So now the important part. You came here to see what size would fit you best, so I won’t leave you hanging - the most helpful part of a review is the stats. Without them, the review is basically useless. Nothing worse than people who write, “these fit great!” but then give no stats. So here you go: I am just under 5’9, about 200 lbs (+/-), and typically wear size 14-16, depending on fit (again, I hate tight waists, so I am probably a 14 but always size up for comfort). I got these in a 16 long, based on reviews, and they are just perfect. Buy these!!!
I normally wear a 20 but took a 16 in these levis. Love these! Just ordered another pair.Update: after washing and drying I probably should have got a 18. A little snug. Also, I'm a pearish 5'4, 220 shape....the pic are with a 16S.

Crest 3D White’s new, unique blue light system uses the same type of light technology dentists use. The blue light weakens stains so that the whitening ingredient can work more effectively. The result is dramatically better whitening compared to strips alone that lasts up to 36 months.

User reviews

Easy enough to use, and a noticeable difference in color when you compare before and after pics, but I didn't notice as much without the pics. Definitely take before and after pics, otherwise the changes may be too subtle to notice. Would use again, although not yet sure if this works better with the light or if the strips by themselves produce the same results.
Whitened my teeth really well, caused severe sensitivity which sucked, and the battery went out on the light and at one point it would stop beeping and I just tossed it, tried to look up batteries for it but there’s no way to open the light
This kit has served as my introduction to using whitening strips and it has worked wonders for me. My teeth are now a shade or two whiter thanks to this. As this kit has only 10 pairs of strips, I used the first one with the recommended instructions, then realized that the crowns of my teeth are quite sensitive to it so I snipped all the 9 remaining pairs of strips into two and applied them to the outer surface of my teeth so as to avoid the sensitive areas, giving me 18 pairs of strips to use. After using them with the light, they have successfully lightened my smile and I'm quite satisfied.

If you have ever tried to ski in the dark, skiing in deep powder at times can be similar. I love big dumps and my drug of choice is white powder. This past weekend I was able to ski in some whiteout field of powder. I felt like I one of those dudes you see on the TGR films bombing down a virgin powder mountain. These googles allowed me to see like a nocturnal creature; I felt like a bat or lemur in their natural dark habitat, where the human eye has its limits. But these goggles out performed far more than what I had expected, I had no problem seeing even when a death cookie kicked up and hit me in the face crossing over the cat track! I should have bought one of the helmets, next paycheck………………Not only are the lenses sexy the construction is DYNOmite, and the magnetic lens attachment is a no brainer. With a quick release you can switch up a new lens depending on the outdoor conditions. Magnetics should be in every piece of clothing, I need to hire the designer to make magnetic diapers when I can barely keep my eyes open at 3:23 in the morning. Whoever designed these goggles had one thing in mind…………….make the best google for money. I hope he/she get a raise or at least takes every powder day off to enjoy his/her creation. I have used many brands and types of snow goggles in my 42 years of existence. This should be on the top of your list of outdoor gear. Basically if you plan to engage in any kind of outdoor or nighttime activity that requires clear and high definition sight without the sun or other sources of light. These googles and will bring a smile to your face. Let it snow!
Got it in my amazon deals, thought it might be a good try for given price.There was a lot of reviews there describing how those googles are easily overcomes Oakley’s etc. what a joke! Upon unpacking there were doubts already. Let me set this straight, I was using lately old Spy model and it is OK, I also tried some Oakley from friend and they are really perform in clear view and deliver outstanding picture corroding all day long. This (Wildhorn) googles are probably 75% of Spy in terms of view zone!!! I might be sarcastic but you can effectively use them for basketball training, since you can’t see anything in your lower sector. This thing alone was enough to not to unrip the protective tape, so I couldn’t comment on lens clearness. Weight is obviously higher than Spy, no buckle for quick release. Rule of life works again, prepare to pay for a quality things.
I took my new Wildhorn helmet and Roca goggles out for a spin this Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was a mostly dry, sunny, bluebird day and Sunday was a cold, wet powder day so I was able to wear in all conditions.Lets start with the helmet. I love that it is lightweight yet well made. The strap on the back that snaps for goggles is very nice. The turn dial on the back to tighten/loosen works nicely to get the perfect fit. Enough padding. Ear flaps are super easy to add wireless headphones in and get them back out to charge. No pressure points after wearing for two full ski days. Drys off easily. Doesn't make my head look massive.Goggles: Look really sleek. Got a lot of compliments on them! Strap was a little difficult for me to tighten/loosen while the goggles were on my helmet. I am used to having goggles that clip in the back so you just adjust them once then snap them on and off but I actually like that these don't have the plastic snap pieces in the back. Could see clearly, wide field of vision. Felt a little air at times but not so much that it bothered my eyes. I actually think the air was nice because they hardly fogged up at all! Would definitely say good ventilation. The only thing I noticed that maybe could be fixed on later models would be the type of foam used. After using mine one day the foam was sort of permanently indented near the edges where it must touch the helmet but that didn't seem to affect comfort or function at all.Overall 5 stars for both products, would recommend to family and friends and buy again even!

User reviews

I wear undershirts every day for work at the office. Whether it's a short sleeve polo, or long sleeve dress shirt with or without a tie. These shirts are perfect. The deeper v cut doesn't show underneath so I can leave the top couple buttons undone. The material feels soft against the skin. It wicks away the sweat and keeps my dress shirts dry and fresh in the Florida heat and humidity. The material may be a little thinner than the all cotton shirts I have, but I like these much better. I'm 5'9 180, a bit stocky, and the medium fit great. The length was well below my beltline so they stay tucked in all day. I'm definitely ordering more as I cycle out my older shirts!
I own other Hanes ComfortBlend undershirts in the same size, and they are not as large as this model. The other problem is that the v-neck is extremely deep (went almost mid-way down my chest), and feels uncomfortable. It may be tough to tell from the attached photo, but try to imagine how the neck hole would feel if it stretches and moves with the slightest force.While I'm ok with the shirt being thin (it goes underneath), it probably leads to it not having enough form. Perhaps underneath another shirt, it wouldn't move around very much, but by itself it feels like a slight breeze would do it in. I also wonder how this would hold up to a washing.I recommend looking elsewhere.
I purposely bought a name brand shirt because I trusted in Hanes. I can’t tell you how disappointed I was when I got it. The fabric is actually so thin and you can almost see through it. Tissue thin. As if it had been washed fifty times already. Too much trouble to send back, so I guess I’ll just wear them a couple times and throw them away. Ready for rags already.

User reviews

So I was in the middle of a winter hike when I realized that a layer of thick sport spandex and a layer of running pants were not cutting it for trekking through the cold snow. As soon as I got home, I jumped on Amazon and I started looking for a light weight, moderately insulated, water resistant snow pant. These snow pants had the best reviews and price for a light weight sport snow pant with moderate insulation.I am between a size 16 and 18 - I ordered a 2X and I could have gotten away with a 1X. Luckily I have been wearing these snow pants with layers underneath and so the extra room has not been a huge issue.As far as features go, there are many. The pants have a zipper at the ankle to help the leg fit over boots and there is an elastic layer underneath to keep snow from creeping up and into the ankle. At the waist there are loopholes for a belt, a grommit for a caribeener, elastic at the side hips to further tighten or loosen the waist and a three-part clasp system that starts with a zipper, then two snaps reinforced by velcro. The pockets are lined with a really warm gray fleece and have zippers. If you are like me and lose fifteen chapsticks per season, then you are going to love the zippered pockets as much as I do.I wore these a few weekends ago to shovel out a driveway by hand in zero degree weather in New Hampshire. I found that the pants stayed dry and warm and were not way too hot considering my exertion levels. All around I am really happy with these and I am looking forward to seeing how they perform on snowshoe expeditions. Thanks for the great product!
I don't even know where to begin with these. With such crazy mixed reviews on the plus sizes I ordered both a size up and 2 sizes up as suggested, I also ended up finding a 3rd size at a local store. For this review I tried 3 sizes: 2X, 3X and 4x.To help, I'm short, my body is very curvy, larger bottom, thick thighs and a smaller waist which has always made pants shopping difficult. At Torrid I wear a size 18 or 20 which is a 2 or a 3 bottom depending on the material. For my top I wear a LG or 1X.All 3 pants are very very long. Literally went to my chest if not almost my shoulder when they where held next to me. Made for a lot of funny photos and good laughs.•2 sizes up which was a 4X was WAY too big. It was like wearing a blanket.• 1 size up which is a 3X is a little too big and unflattering. Even with workout leggings underneath it's too big all around. Height, waist, thighs all areas could be bunched while I wore them.• true to size which was a 2X was tight. I could button just fine and even had a gap but zipping was a little tough (larger bottom problems) The crotch and thighs were tight (thick thighs problem). There is no stretch and no wiggle room so if you think they will loosen up as you wear them they won't. I was able to walk just fine and the pants were even flattering but when I bent down or bent too much I was afraid I would rip a seam.I will be returning the 4X, keeping the 3X to go snow tubing in so I can be as rough as I need to with out worrying that I will rip them but I will for sure be holding on to the 2X since I'm sure if I dropped half a size the would be perfect.Pants pictures. Size 2X with no leggings underneath. Size 3X with leggings and a photo with how high they were up to my chest
I'm usually a US 4 (UK 8) sometimes a US 6. My waist is 28in, hips are 35/36 depending where I measure and my inseam is 33.5 (I'm 5'10'' 140 lbs). I bought the Small TALL and they fit but were very very snug, tough to sit down in them, plus I'll want to wear thermals underneath if I go skiing. I just ordered a Medium Tall as well but am probably going to keep both pairs because 1 - they are so cheap and 2 - I might actually wear the small if I am not going skiing or doing anything that requires a lot of movement and flexibility. The small does look nice but definitely would pop the buttons open if I started doing some intense bending, rolling or squatting and etc. The length on the Tall size was perfect. They are very comfy and seem warm. Unbelievable quality for the price...

Great quality for the price, and almost indiscernible from the authentic Apple band (the pink band in photo) that came with my watch. I love the wine-red and blue bands with the gold watch.The only downside to these bands is that the material is slightly more staticky than authentic bands, so it attracts more dirt/dust/pet-hair and has to be wiped down with a wet cloth more often. Considering the price difference ($5 each compared to $50) I’d say the tiny bit of extra maintenance is well worth it.
These bands feel just like the Apple bands! Very smooth and comfy on my wrist!! Would definitely buy again!
Received my package today, I ordered last Tuesday so shipping was a little long but I’m assuming that’s bc I don’t want to pay for prime shipping. The bands themselves do see thick enough that they’ll last awhile & the feel like good quality, however they smell AWFUL. I could instantly smell this stench the second I opened the seal on the package, hopefully it’ll go away over time.EDIT: after wearing it for a few days it collects lint like crazy! I’m going to be looking for a different watch band which sucks because I love the colors I got!
