Going on 4 year relationship with these
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 6"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: medium

I have these bibs in four colors that's how much I love them. They are bombproof, keep me dry, breathe well, and the fit is great. I size up as the fit is a bit tight in the legs if I go with an accurate waist measurement, but I think I can accredit that to different body types in Norway versus South America:) I am larger in the quads and rear so I size up to a medium and use the awesome hip tab adjusters to tighten the waist and end up with a great relaxed fit. They are very high quality, move well, you hardly know you are wearing them. My go to for deep days, suspenders down on regular days.

My board for everything
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had three versions of this board I love it so much. Stiff enough to handle speed and steeps, yet still spins and butters. First board I pack on a trip when I am not sure what the snow will be like because I know it can handle anything. Here it is dropping trees in about 4 feet of wet spring powder at Mt. Baker during the banked slalom

Go to shell for deep days/backcountry
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 6"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: medium

I love this shell so much I have it in 5 different colors. It's lightweight, but still burly, the colors are great, and the fit is great. The sleeves with princess hem on the cuffs are awesome easily adjustable for a great fit over gloves. good pockets, and keeps you dry on deep days . I would say runs overall true to size, except tight in the chest area

I bought this shirt for my father for his birthday. He hates buying clothes so the job of stylist has been deferred to me. This is a great lightweight button down shirt, great for hot weather. It looks great albeit the sizing being a bit small. My father is typically in between size small and medium so this worked in our favor and put him solidly in a medium. He really likes the chest pockets which even have a slot for a pen (he is a scientist and likes to carry a calculator and other nerdy things) . Overall a great stylish shirt for the price!

I bought these shorts for my father for Father's Day as a casual short he could use for casual wear , walking, and hiking. They were sleeker than I expected and my father will even dress them up with a button down . The fabric is soft and stretchy and quick drying which is great. Sizing is pretty true and they haven't stretched at all with wear

I bought this shirt for my mother as a mother's day gift after I already had one. The fit is great, and dries quickly. The length is perfect down to the hips and flows nicely while still having a feminine cut. Great shirt for many different types of activities, and the antimicrobial treatment is great so you can wear it a couple times without it getting too funky

I got this dress as a mother's day present and my mother is in love. The fit is pretty true to size, and the fabric is stretchy and quick dry material. The built in bra is nice, makes it a good casual dress for a walk or hike, and my mom also plans on wearing it as a cover up to the pool or beach. My mother is 5 foot 3, 125 pounds, and a 34D and I bought her a size medium and fits great, albeit a bit long.

My Norrona Problem is now a Bike one too

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 6"

Size Purchased: m

As if I didn't have a major Norrona gore tex problem in the winter, they just had to also make amazing mountain bike shorts. These shorts are great. The black is really more of a grey, and the fabric is tough yet breathable. I am 5 foot 7 135 with muscular legs and although my waist could fit in a small , I have to go medium in order to accommodate thighs and rear. The waist tabs are therefore very useful! The fit is loose without being overly baggy and the length is great. Will probably get more colors, a girl can never have too many mountain bike outfits!

I bought this bike so I could have a somewhat trail bike to go with my down hill bikes, and have not been disappointed. The thing screams downhill and can handle any line, but is still light and nimble on the uphill. I am 5 foot 7 , 135 and bought a medium. Probably could get away with a size small, but I have abnormally long arms and have always felt more comfortable on a medium frame. Will post some pics once it stops snowing in Utah:)

I got these for my boyfriend as he likes camo print things to wear for snowboarding and climbing as a baselayer and he loves them. They are warm the material is comfortable and appears durable thus far. His only gripe is that fit wise they are a bit loose around the ankles, but if he went smaller they wouldn't fit around the rest of his legs. So if you have very muscular legs and size up , there may be a bit of ankle bagginess.

I bought this outfit for my shred-niece (daughter of my two closest shred partners) as a baby shower gift. Alexa was a bit small at birth, so its still a bit big on her, but otherwise its a soft comfy outfit ! Cant wait to buy this little goat more Patagonia gear !

I have a father who is a mad scientist who never buys himself clothing. When my mother asked that I buy him some good shorts for walking and the gym that were inexpensive and versatile, I went with these. They are light and breathable and very comfortable. My father is a bit of a picky human, but loves these. He loves he mid thigh length, the only gripe he has is that they are sans pockets. Otherwise, he has already asked for the another color as a fathers day gift!. The run true to size, my father is 5 foot 8, 145 slender with a 31 inch waist and the medium fits perfect.

CUTEST SHOES EVER

Fit: True to size

I bought these for my best friend's new baby Alexa. She was born a bit early and still fitting premie sizing., but got her these in the 0-3 months size so she can wear them for a couple months. The shoes are adorable, the quality and craftmanship is evident, and I can't wait to see her in them in the months to come. Sizing seems pretty true, this pic was taken of a small newborn, and shoes are just a bit big.

Awesome boots!

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 6"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: 6.5

I bought these boots as a hiking shoe but also to wear casually and get compliments everywhere I go. The leather is supple and comfortable but the boots have the stiffness for long hikes as well. Have taken on several long hikes to break in and they are now perfect. Seem to run a bit big. I usually am a 7 and went with a 6.5

I bought this for my girlfriend and myself to wear on a heli skiing trip this spring. I have taken it out on one tour thus far and it was very comfortable. I could strap my board on horizontally and the front pockets were large enough for beacon snacks phone etc. The dedicated pockets for shovel and probe are accessible and comfortable to use. My girlfriend is 6 foot, 36D, 31 inch waist, and I am 5 foot 7, 34C , 26inch waist and the S/M fit both of us relatively well considering there is not a women specific option.

Bought these as a gift for my father as his first ski boots out of rentals. Being a scientist he can be quite picky, but he was very pleased with the fit and the heat moldable liner. His feet tend to get cold but so far he has had good circulation in these on full days of skiing paired with good performance. He is 5 foot 8 inches tall size 27.5, and an intermediate skier.
