Amy R's Bio

I have a passion for backpacking and hiking. I'm always up for adventure...even more so if my dog gets to go! Once winter comes around its time for skis and snowshoes. Luckily I get to do all that in more out here.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
Fit: True to size

I gave this as a gift here's what she had to say- I normally wear a medium and ordered a medium in this. The fit of the jacket is snug, when I wear my light fleece under it, it's fine. If I try to wear anything thicker it's too much. The Greystone Blue came to the house more purple, which was a nice surprise.

This satiating sac of sweet sustenance slays any suspect snack situation. Don't subject yourself to sad selections of gas station rations. Enjoy these delicious little fruity bites on the trail or on the road! They are not overly sugared and are a nice pick me up when you need a boost. Definitely a staple in my snacks!

Normally Nikita is spot on with their shirt and jacket lengths for me but this one didn't do it. As others mentioned this shirt would be perfect if it was just a bit longer. The material is thin and drapes well, just a bit shorter than I would have liked. I am typically a size Medium and found this to run just a bit on the small size when I ordered a medium.

These boots get 5 stars across the board. I typically wear a size 8.5 and ordered that in these boots. Initial fit was comfortable but after a week of wearing them it's like they were made for my feet. These boots look great with anything. I know everyone else's comments say that too, but it's true! I ordered the chocolate vintage color and love the distressing on them. When I waterproofed them they remained the same color as well. I wear these boots daily and love them! They are worth the investment!

I am madly in love with this dress. The only reason that it did not get 5 stars is the fleece lining on the inside can rub slightly funny if you are wearing tights that are not somewhat slick. I am a size 8/10 and the medium fits perfectly. The sleeves are long and thumbholes fit well. The small detail of the hood snaps adds to the sleek design of this dress. The material feels high quality and I would suspect with the right care this dress will last a long time. Seriously, it's warm and looks amazing. Can you ask for much more?

I don't know if I can say enough good things to say about these jeans to do them justice. Some may say they are a skinny jean, but really they are just darn good fitting jeans. They look great ( in all colors) and are incredibly comfortable. The fabric is on the thinner side and a bit stretchy. As noted in other reviews- size down a size, you won't regret it. What you will regret is missing out on your new favorite pair of jeans if you pass these up!

I had been eyeballing this cube system for a while to organize our camping gear. I finally got one and have no regrets. You can label the individual cubes and know what goodies each one holds. It was ultra convenient to just grab a cube with the stuff I needed instead of digging around in various bags, cars, cubbies, etc. I have only used it a few times so I can't speak to the durability but for now I am impressed with the overall function.

Simple basic tank that gets the job done. I am typically a size medium and found that this brand ran true to size. The material is soft and feels durable. I really liked the length- not too long and not too short. The Aubergine color is just like it shows on the site!

I recently purchased this two burner stove as an upgrade to our stove situation for car camping. Prior to this we were using the tiny backpacking stove for all our cooking needs. Man, was this upgrade needed. To be able to cook my breakfast and have hot coffee at the same time?! Like a little camping dream come true. The burners are easy to light ( even if you have mild irrational fears of them ). Overall it has an easy set up and works well for small or large groups. As noted in a previous review, it is also awesome for brewing! The only downside to this is that it does not come with a bag or carrying case for all the parts.

These boots are burley, mountain crushing, water deflecting, hiking monsters. They will do everything you ask and more....as long as you give them a proper break in time. No really, take your time breaking them in and you will be rewarded with an amazing boot. Once my boots had broken in ( no kidding like 50 miles) I felt like I could take on the world. The last runs just a bit narrower than my previous la sportiva boots. These boots are stiff and made to support a heavy pack. I have stomped through ankle deep water with out any issues. I'm typically an 8.5 but did order a 9 in these shoes. Overall if you want serious backpacking boots that will last a while, look at these boots.

I picked up these pants and will never look at another pair of hiking pants again. I ordered a size down ( normally a 8-10, went with a 8) and they fit perfect. The drawstring in the waist helps snug up any looseness that may occur after a few days of hiking in them. I have taken them on a few multi-day trips and they have been rockstar pants the whole time. They may be a bit heavy for desert hiking, but they are perfect for everything else. They have held up against all sorts of abrasion ( rock, branches, thorns). The cut is incredibly flattering and still very practical. Can you tell I like these pants? Prana just made me a lifer.

The title says it all. A week after I got this jacket ( in the wine color) my roommate asked me if I had taken it off yet. That's how comfortable this jacket is. The material is on the lighter side, so I definitely see this as a hoodie. I'll use on the slightly chilly summer/fall nights. The neck is a bit baggy, but it doesn't look bad . The tie at the bottom I could live with out but I just leave it loosely tied all the time. I typically wear a medium top/bottom and found that a medium fit well in the chest and hip. I typically like longer length hoodies and this one sits just about hip length. I don't feel it ride up , however, sometimes my longer shirts peek out from under. It's soft, comfortable, and cute. I'm can't ask for much more.

When the temperature rises, this is the top to grab. Drape-y, sheer-backed, and adorably tie-dyed. This top begs to be worn to summer concerts and I will not deny it. I am typically a medium and ordered a black medium in this. It fits just like it does in the photos below. Throw on a bandeau bra and channel your inner flower child, you won't regret it.

These leggings are amazing. They are incredibly flattering and fit so well! I'm a size 8-10 and the medium was a perfect fit. The only reason they didn't get 5 start from me is after the first wash, a seam came out and started a small hole at the knee. I was devastated. Honestly, these feel so solidly made that I feel like this was a defect and not their normal standard. I'll give Lucy another shot because of how much I loved these leggings. They are flattering, breathable, and now I want to live in leggings.

As mentioned by others, the fit on these leggings are a little funky. I am a size 10 and the medium fit perfect everywhere...but behind the knees. Seriously, the fabric gets weird and slouchy right by the knees. I was looking for a snug fit across the board so these just didn't do it for me. If you are looking for a bit looser tights, these might be the ones for you. Size in the waist worked well for me, just not the excess fabric behind the knees.

I purchased this as a gag gift for a friend so can't seem to own nice fragile things...like wine glasses. Turns out she loves them! They go on picnics, car camping, and any other event that is more fun with adult beverages. Don't limit yourself to wine with these glasses! These stable glasses can hold whatever liquid makes your night more fun!

I don't throw the word perfect around lightly. This shirt earned..no...it deserves it. It fits true to size, has great length ( no weird hip cropping), and holds shape after numerous washes. I can openly say I own this shirt in many different colors. The white material can be a bit thin, so I typically wear an undershirt with it. It is my favorite comfortable top! Buy every color and thank me later.

I purchased the black panel (Quarry) color of this dress. I purchased a Medium (my typical size) and it fits perfectly. It's easy to dress up or keep casual with flip flops. The fabric is really comfortable and the black panels are quite slimming. The shelf bra doesn't really do much, like others said it's more of just another layer of fabric. Overall I see myself rocking this dress all summer!
