It all comes down to the scent. It just has such a classic, gentlemanly fragrance. Whenever I slather this stuff on, I think this is what a New England fisherman must smell like on his days home from sea. Amazing stuff. There is no sort of tingling or burning or cooling or any of the other stuff we often expect from after shave creams, balms, gels, etc. It's just soothing and calming and nice. I have pretty sensitive skin, and this keeps the burn and redness at bay. I can't say enough." —Jason Zurawski

I haven't been let down once. So far my favorite item has been a vintage down vest that I wear multiple times a week. I loved the service so much that I bought my brother a subscription for Christmas, and due to the survey everyone fills out, he gets very different items than me — but also loves them.

They say hand wash it, but I toss mine in the washer and hang dry it overnight. It does have a tendency of getting a little too warm at times but that's manageable. The only reason I bought another is I wanted a different color. Hopefully, it will last over 25 years as well. This will make a great Christmas gift or stocking stuffer at a very affordable price! I highly recommend buying this hat!" —Randy Indy

I so happened to pick one of the hottest days to do it. But this towel did the trick! It kept me cool enough to complete the task.

I am a 224 pound person and even at the top of the ladder is it sturdy, and does not wobble. So easy to extend and fold down. I just ordered one for my son as a gift." —david k

This one is a gentle, relaxing wake-up to the warm glow of the 'sun' and birds happily chirping.

The fact that the entire glove is equipped for touch sensitivity is a major plus. Also the gripper dots (only on the palms) are a nice perk, I didn't realize how slippery my phone was in my other gloves until I used this one." —Puablo
