Beth's Bio

My boss drives me... to get up in the morning. Except on weekends, then I can be found hiking, camping, backpacking, mountain biking, skate skiing, snowboarding, or jogging... none of these things I do very well, but I enjoy them as long as people are willing to slow down for me. I originally hale from Michigan, so topography was new to me when I moved to Wyoming in 2005, and then topography with more steroids when I moved to Alaska in 2008. When I'm vacationing, I prefer to be someplace warm where I can water ski, windsurf, kite sail, swim, surf, or play a hilarious game of whiffle ball or volleyball on the beach... or fall asleep in the sun.

What is this, a jacket for ANTS?! I bought this for my husband for his birthday, and I got a Medium, he usually wears mediums at 165# and 5'10". This jacket was comically tiny. When he put it on, it looked like he was wearing a tuxedo jacket.

It is being returned, but we might very well get a larger size (or two sizes larger?) because it's a VERY nice looking jacket.

So, I'm giving it a lot of stars, but BUYER BE WARNED, it's tiny, but hilariously so.

I'm going to level with you, I bought these because I secretly (not a secret anymore!) want to be besties with the other person who reviewed these pants and described them as "amazeballs."

I am 5'9" and 145lb and the Medium fits fine.

I live in Alaska, so short sweatpants aren't really practical outside of the summer months, but I love pulling them on with a hoodie after work between May and August.

I also seem to accidently get chain grease from my bicycle on my lower legs almost every day, so these pants showcase that nicely.

I didn't find the fabric too shiney, these are great technical sweatpants for lounging. Haha, get it?

Hike/PackRaft in a downpour- Eureka Creek, AK
5 5

I spent Labor Day weekend hiking off the Denali Highway- 20 miles of hiking and packrafting an additional 20 miles. This was a trip that really gave me a deep appreciation of my gear because it poured rain 2 out of the 3 days we were out. The 20 mile hike was nearly ALL bushwhacking through shoulder high willow and alder, so when it wasn't raining, it certainly was nowhere near dry around me. This jacket held up to everything very well. While rafting it stayed in my pack outside of a dry bag (since it went in wet) and got SOAKED. It also served as a buffer between my sleeping bag and the rain fly we were sleeping under. After being packed in my pack, stuffed next to my bed, poked by innumerable sticks, and staying wet for 3 days straight because it didn't get a chance to dry out, I am happy and relieved to report back to you all that this thing is still 100% waterproof, breathable, and dries pretty quickly. I was surprised because it's sort of a thicker fabric. I am 5'9" 145lb and the M fits great with nice long arms and a big ol' hood!!! Attached is a picture of us hiking through mercifully low brush. I am in the middle with the Stoic jacket on and Eureka glacier in the back ground.

I love these pants. I want a matching Izzie shirt, and maybe a coat for my dog... I put them on every day when I get back from work, when I walk the dog, when I wake up on the weekends, when I come back from skiing. I felt guilty at first for buying such expensive pants, but I just LOVE them. They wash well, too! I'm 5'9", 145lbs and I have a pair of medium pants that fit great... they aren't baggy (so don't expect that!).

Insulated wrap skirt
3 5

This is a great skirt for what it is. It packs down so its tiny, and I love the olive/blue color I got. It rides pretty high on my waist (I'd have to get an XL for it to sit on my 40" hips), and if there's a breeze say goodbye to protection (wrap skirt... predictable). I plan to wear it on all of my moose riding adventures, and taking it camping and backcountry split-boarding when I can. Also, it's quite static-y.

I was convinced that I would never feel awesome in a bathing suit. I'm 5'10" and 145lbs and have bigger hips than bust. Somehow, this bathing suit bottom marries comfort with slimmingness and does not feel like it's going to fly off if I happen to stand UP on a surf board and then fall down into the wave and get mashed around a bit. I followed the size chart, and it fits perfectly, and now I'm obsessed with Carve Designs things. I finally feel like walking out in the sun with this on and not hiding in a pair of shorts or a long shirt!!!

I have this tank top in the Lobelia and Emberglow. The price on SAC is always nice, but the shirt itsself fits awesome. I wore it as my next to skin layer on an avalanche class when we had to spend about 5 hours a day hiking on splitboards. I also wear it as a base layer biking in the winter to work (-10F to 30F). The shelf bra is a joke if you're above a B cup, but I find it works fine for my modest chest. It moves with me and doesn't shift, and it wicks pretty effectively. Also, it accomodates my unproportional hips. The medium fits great (me: 36-29-40).
