Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Looking for a mid-weight base layer. Cute as a shirt, but not going to cut it for skiing. The DryRide label had me thinking it would be quality material, but the tags list 80% cotton to 20% synthetic (polyester? can't remember). To be a base layer in my book there should be no cotton - otherwise your core doesn't stay warm/dry.

While I didn't purchase on Backcounty, I'm so pumped I'm posting a review. Found last year's lilac color on sale - score!

I've been searching for a quality pant with high waterproofing/breathability, fully taped seams, and actual style. This, for the few who are unaware, is nearly impossible. The industry just doesn't make much quality gear for women. THANK GOD Armada started producing women's outwear.

These pants are sick. In my opinion the fit is relaxed, but not huge as others have said (Armada's Aurora pant however - their "relaxed fit," as the name implies, does run intentionally big). If you buy your true size they should fit you in the waist/hips. I actually sized up because they're slim fit and I'm really happy. Love these pants!

These pants are pretty legit. Order your regular size - Oakley factors in for a roomier/modern fit. They have decent waterproofing and I love the cognac color. They were a little too tapered at the knee for my taste, and they were pricy for the amount of waterproofing, so I went with Armada. But overall, pretty cool pants.

Love the extra length, style and quality of this jacket. So sick. BUT the elastic hem would drive me crazy. With its longer fit, the bottom of the jacket hits at about your hips, but any big movements (park, back country, falling, or most importantly all those high five) shifts the jacket up so it sits at your waist. Super awkward. I'd constantly be pulling the jacket down to fit right while skiing. If it had a relaxed hemline, the jacket would be perfect.

A note on sizing: Order your regular size (I ordered up which was a mistake) - Oakley has a modern cut so it's got a relaxed fit.

These pants are awesome! Made the mistake of ordering a size up though; I like a looser fit for my ski pants. Didn't realize that Armada already factors in for that kind of fit, so the mediums were huge on me (5'4"/usually a 26" waist). Buy true to size, or size down if you want a more traditional fit (which probably isn't you anyway if you're looking at buying Armada)!

I normally wear mittens (which I hate) because my hands get so cold, but I bought these after hearing so many great reviews, both by friends and on here. I was skeptical because of how cold my hands get, but these gloves rock! I haven't worn them on a crazy cold day yet, but I did take a pretty good digger in the trees and my hands/gloves got covered in snow - they warmed up quickly thereafter and didn't get soggy at all, which was awesome. Definitely treated the gloves before using. Thanks Hestra!

I've been looking for a quality down jacket that doesn't look like a sleeping bag FOREVER. This jacket is epic! Love that it's a longer fit, i.e. not your mom's cropped sweater look. The black jacket does not have brown leather detailing, it's black leather. Skied a few days ago in -10F and I stayed really warm...couldn't say the same about my feet...
