I bought this skirt at the beginning of last summer, and I wore it every time it was clean! I loved that it was cooler than shorts, the nylon fabric kept it from clinging to my legs, it had lots of pockets (I have little kids!), and it went with everything. With the weather warming up, I'm excited to pull this favorite out again!

I purchased several of these sacks and have tried them out, but haven't really exposed them to any water, so I'm not sure how waterproof they really are (which is why I only gave them a 4 star rating for now). I was pleased with their capacity and could get more into each size sack then I thought. The largest size is good enough for my sleeping bag which was a nice surprise.

With the weather warming up, I need more summer clothes! Last summer I bought a similar skirt from Backcountry, and wore it like a uniform all summer! So I decided I needed another one for this year, so I'll have one to wear & one to wash! :) I haven't worn this one as much as my last one, but so far it fits the bill. It's comfortable and lightweight, and most importantly, hangs freely enough that I don't feel the weight of it on my legs when it's really warm. I also like that it goes to my knees.

Spring again, and I needed a comfortable, easy shoe to wear everywhere. This was just the shoe! The insole is very padded & extremely comfortable. They're easy to slip on, so I end up wearing these shoes almost every time I go out. Although well made, I may just wear it out by the end of the summer with as much as I wear it!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

These gloves are perfect for quick trips outside or to run errands. I love the touchscreen fingertip! They wouldn't be warm enough for extended outdoor use, but I've thrown them on for the last few weeks of bitter cold when I'm running somewhere, and they're cozy enough to keep me warm going from the car to store, etc.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Unfortunately I haven't had many chances to wear these gloves, not from lack of snow, but from lack of getting out in it! I like the touchscreen fingertips for sure! As for warmth, they've been fine for me, but I haven't been out for extended periods of time yet.

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

I purchased these boots for my daughter after trying 3 other types of boots. She immediately fell in love with these boots and loves to wear them everywhere she goes. They have been warm and comfortable in all conditions. We haven't had any bitter cold, but it has been in the teen's and her feet have always been comfortable.

I purchased this shirt to wear on some trail runs along the Appalachian trail in the early spring. It was the perfect warmth that I was looking for and loved the 1/4 zip. I was really surprised how much of a difference the zipper made in adjusting my temperature. The sleeves on this shirt are very long which I actually appreciated. I was very easy for me to make a fist and pull it into the sleeve for some extra warmth if needed. The fabric is very breathable and soft. I really enjoyed running in this shirt.

Love this jacket! I bought it knowing I was going to be camping two weekends in a row in the Rocky Mountains in January. I wanted an extra insulation layer that was lightweight and easy to pack. I loved being able to zip this entire jacket into its pocket and then stuff it in my pack. It was perfect! I was warm and didn't feel I was packing around any extra bulk.

I picked this up for my wife and she loved it! The first day she wore it, her riding partner couldn't stop talking about how nice it looked. It was warm and very comfortable. She loved the high collar and the fit. It was true to the dimensions on the sizing chart and fit very well. This is a beautiful, well made and very effective jacket.
