Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

Seems like these gloves should work better than they do- look great, but every time I have used them my hands have still gotten cold. they seem to cut the wind, but the fabric gets cold, and then chills your hand. Finger tips have seams so they are bulky, and don't allow you to use your hands without taking them off.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large

purchased this as my overall shell for back county touring and snow kiting. It was replacing my Northface Free thinker that had torn. This jacket is lighter, but has all the features to keep you well covered. the high neck is great in the wind, and the hood large enough to fit over a helmet. I love the blue color-it pops off the white snow, which is handy when you want to make sure your touring partners can find you. Only thing I would ask for is larger zipper pulls for added ease when you have gloves on.

I bought this for snow kiting, works great as a quick cover to pull up over your face when the wind blasts. You can breath through it easily without the moisture settling on it like fleece. Also looks cute as a head band for skate skiing. I'd but a couple more in different colors.

I tried many other brands over the last year, and came back to buy these. LUV them even more than I did two years ago. They fit superb. I have a narrow foot, and use insoles. The gortex is crucial this time of year. If you wear them inside you will get hot feet :-)
The lacing system, keeps the fit snug, and quick on/off. Size chart was accurate. The sidewall mud guard does work, On a muddy hike, my husband had the regular Salomons and his shoe was weighed down and I was fine. Tread is great for icy conditions, and shoe is very stable on rocky surfaces.

great sunglasses for all round from looking cool at the cafe to trails or fairways Only thing I would not use them for is cycling,they are too large with a helmet. I love the size, fit, weight and field of vision. When others complain of wind, and sore eyes, I am fine wearing the Darts. I purchased the brushed brown bronze with the gradient lens. The case is burly, glasses are burly but chic- worth the price tag.

I looks great. Its easy to use. The data fields are relevent and easy to read. The naviagtion is simple. And finally a Heart rate Moniter that is perfect for small wrists. I like it so much I have been using it as my everyday watch. I like how it breaks your workouts into time spent in zones, gives you a bar view as well as logged minutes view. The strap is the most comfortable, and you can unsnap the electronics, so washing becomes simple. It has a fabric feel, which is more comfortable than the typical rubber.

I had to go AT from Tele because of a bad knee. I wanted a light binding, that I could use mainly backcountry and occasionally in resort. These bindings are worth every dime, they are light, easy to use. The three heel heights for skinning make climbing easier because the transitions of rotating the heel is smooth. I always had trouble with climbing bars and find this set up much easier.
They are daunting at first because they are so different, but 1 ski and you'll be a convert. Like the guy above mentioned the only down side is having to clean the holes in your boots so the toe pins will go in. A Q-tip does the trick nicely.
I come from a tele set up, so I cannot comment on how this compares to a traditional alpine binding, but I can say it it was easier to tour on these dynafits than any tele binding I have had. I opted to mount them with the brakes, which have been great for in resort. When you backcountry and go to turn the heel for touring, make sure you press the brake plate down first
(took me a second to realize this)
I mounted them on Black Diamond Joules and have been very happy.

vest is typical North Face high quality. I have the white and I like the subtle sheen on the outside. The neck collar has baby soft fleece. Pockets are well placed, especially the cell phone/ipod chest pocket. Fit is true to the sizing chart. If you are on the size border, go down it is a little larger than you think. Warmth factor is better than I would have guessed. I wore it in 29 degree weather with just a sweater underneath and I was plenty warm. For $88 this is a must have.

Normally I like Kavu clothes, but these shorts fit strange. They are way larger than the size chart indicates. he the waist is much larger than the legs, giving you a funny 'v' shape. I returned them.
The material is heavy, maybe works for a fall short- too beefy for summer.

this is a great fit and can be worn in the gym, or with jeans. i like the zipper feature, and the pleated look makes it more interesting than a plan t-shirt- but doesn't make it too dressy for hikes yoga or workouts.I wear a size 6, ordered a small, and found it true to size. It does not fit too snug. Material wicks away sweat well.

bought these for my hubby who uses them for skiing, all round glasses, I liked them so much I bought a pair for my mom. completely different face size and they still look great.
They seem to be the sure bet that fit many face types, many activities, if your looking for a gift.
