Amy'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.

Fit: Runs small

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.

Fit: Runs large

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.

Fit: True to size

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.

Fit: True to size

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.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

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!

I LOVE this style of this dress. It is bright, colorful, and flowy- everything a summer dress should be. Typically I have to size up on Billabong, however, I was spot on with ordering my typical size in this. I'm 5'4" and 135 lbs and a medium fit perfect. There is a liner under the dress so you don't have to worry about it going transparent in the sun!

I got these glasses for my boyfriend, however, after receiving them...well...I have a new pair of sunnies. They are super cute, they run just a bit on the small side, which is why I now wear them. They fit well and the nose pads really do help keep them in place. Smith did a nice job with well fitting glasses ( on small/small medium faces) fora decent price.

You remember that childhood best friend? The one that you wanted by you at all times and you never wanted to see them go? That's how I feel about this dress. I don't want it to ever leave me. It runs true to size, has stylish lines and is incredibly comfortable. Do yourself a favor and get it!

I bought these boots last winter as my winter walking boots. They are amazing. They fit true to size (8.5 is always my size and what I ordered). The adjustable strap on the back makes it easy if you are wearing bulky jeans. As a person that typically wears flat shoes, I was a bit concerned about the heel. They have a very small heel but I didn't have any issues wearing them all day. Seriously, you can kick through anything in these boots and stay dry. Sorel hasn't let me down yet and these boots are no exception.

This shirt is amazingly comfortable. It's soft and just the right cut. I"m a little surprised to see reviews of it fitting so small. I have had some whiskey militia shirts that were definitely cut extremely small- this didn't have that problem. I've washed it and dried it and haven't seen any shrinking or warping of the fit. I did,however, order a Large based on my previous experience with the Whiskey Militia shirts. I normally wear a Medium so this might be why I found the fit so comfy. Maybe order a size up when you get this shirt, you won't regret it's soft comfy fit!

I have had a few Outdoor Research products and am never disappointed. These pants were no exception. They are lightweight but feel durable. They don't ride and bunch if you are rockscrambling during your hike. I wear a size 8 and these fit perfectly. They look fantastic on! The drawstring waist is a nice addition for comfort as well.

I have had some poor experiences with sleeping pads before ( ie: one too many times of waking up cold and on the ground) so I decided to try this one. I'm a huge fan of the integrated hand pump in the mat. It's effective and easy to use. I really like the one way valves. It makes it much easier to roll up the mat when air can only escape and not get back into the mat. While I haven't tried it in cold weather, it has done a great job so far.
