Ali's Bio

I heart playing outside. I love to ski, snowshoe, road bike, swim, trail/road run, and lay on the grass in the shade with a glass of cold lemonade. I hate it when people do not signal when they are driving and love the smell of early mornings.

Favorite thing? This jacket is extremely light and compact. I tend to be the person that would rather freeze than bring extra clothing along. This jacket is very convenient. As for the review above, agreed that it would be nice to have pockets...but I'd rather be able to stuff this jacket in my biking jersey pocket than the other way around.
I usually wear a medium, and got a medium. Sleeve length and torso length are perfect. Its great for hiking too, especially for cool summer nights up the canyon in Utah. Its still pretty new, but I expect it to hold up well and last a long time...Sugoi hasn't let me down yet.

Sometimes when you put on a new piece of clothing you're surprised or caught off guard when you put it on for the first time because of fit or feel. That's how I was with this short. I thought I had good running shorts, but apparently not because these felt SO awesome when I put them on (although they are so light I felt naked for the first ten minutes, that was weird).
I've got big hips...er, really strong legs so I usually wear a large (8-10ish) and the large fits really well.
I also like the look of them, I didn't get the puff-factor like another review said. I like how they fit on the waist, just above my hips.
These are perfect for hot days hiking or running...even wearing to the gym.

I would much rather spend $ on this than a regular hooded sweatshirt. I got this in the black (although its more dark charcoal). It has a very comfortable roomy fit, but not frumpy at all. I recently washed it in cold water, hung dry and it fits and feels the same as before. I also love the snaps down the front, it makes it easy to get on/off but gives it a more feminine cute look.

I love pretty much everything I buy from Backcountry, so a lot of my reviews are 5 stars, and I can't make an exception for these pants. They are cozy, cushy, and so comfortable! They're not just any fleece, they're made from a fabric called Cashmoore. I love the slim pockets and stretchy waist band. I usually wear an 8 or 10 pant but have big hips, so I got a large in these and they fit great. Just the right length too (I'm about 5'6"). They are super warm, good for cold nights at a cabin in the mountains. They're a little thick, so I wouldn't consider using them for layering under anything. Hurry and get them while they're on sale.

I got this in the black (although its not totally black, more like dark charcoal with a faint stripe pattern-very cute). I usually wear a medium, but am pregnant so I got a large (which won't fit me too much longer). This feels like a true-to-size brand, and isn't tight fitting. It is SO comfortable! Very soft and breathes well. I love the square cut design...like a tank top, but not. No signs of chaffing . I have worn this hiking a few times and just washed it in cold water, hung it to try-still fits and feels the same.

This top is so nice! The built in bra makes the top section a little thick if you're working out hard (but hopefully not too hard since you're probably pregnant). I'm 6 months pregnant and wear this to the gym and everyday around town. I wanted to wear it earlier, but it's made to fit when you're belly is getting obviously bigger. It is VERY comfortable and I have gotten a lot of compliments on the style. Its really hard to find cute maternity activewear, but of course Prana gets it right on their first try.

I got this pant and was happy to see that it isn't really maternity specific...well, the name is, but it could certainly be worn no matter what your waist size is. I love the thick folding waist band. I wear a size 8 in my waist normally but have bigger hips so the Large fit best. Now that I'm 6 months pregnant I'm not sure my waist size, but the Large still fits. This material is really nice, a little on the thick side so not great for activities where you know you'll be really warm, but perfect for walking and even to work!

If you've been looking for a workout top, quit searching. This is the one you want. It is THE MOST comfortable work out top with a built in bra I have ever worn. I would definitely buy this again. I am 5 months pregnant and can still wear this top, which means that it is long enough that you don't have to worry about it riding up or being too short. I'm a B cup and got a medium, fits perfect. I washed this in cold water, hang dry and its still as soft as the first time I wore it.

This bottom, along with the Bella top, are perfect. I can't stand a suit that you have to adjust often (aka gives you a wedgie). These bottoms have a perfect fit. The only down fall is that they aren't lined throughout (only in the front). If they were lined on the butt also, it would probably make them last longer (why is it that suits always wear thin first right where your crack is?...just being honest).

I love to swim. Thus, I buy a suit at least once a year. I don't know why, but its so hard to find 'just the right one'. This top (and the Bella bottom) happen to be the right one for me. I have to have a racer back style (a necessity when lap swimming or doing a triathlon). It is also lined on the front, which usually makes a suit last longer. I had to get a size up because the material doesn't stretch like most suits do.

Everyone RAVES about these shoes and I have never had Salomon running shoes, so I decided to try them out. Yes, they do run about 1/2 size large. At first I did NOT like them...the prominent arch support and higher cut (than my road shoes) felt foreign and was hard to get used to. I now love them, especially the quick lace, and am VERY excited for the snow to melt so I can use them on real trails.

I now have a favorite wool top to go with my favorite wool bottoms (Ibex loose tights). When I say 'favorite', let me clarify what that means: it has to be an item that I don't have to wash very often, looks good, and will last a long time. I love wool but its expensive. I always know it will be a good investment though. This definitely is. I usually wear a medium and got a medium. I was a little surprised that it was more fitted than expected, but a large would have been to big.
