Catherine Greenwald's Bio

When not working with words, I can be found snowboarding, biking (mountain and road, I don't discriminate), and hiking. Indoors, I'm into good food & wine, and keeping the peace between dogs and cats.

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

Let's just say, there is a lot of material in this top. If you're tall and lean with pretty narrow shoulders, it's going to look fantastic on you. For everyone else, it's a definite maybe. I did some tailoring on this top to make it fit a little more snugly and that definitely helped. I didn't just return it because I really like the fabric and the print, and the overall concept. It just needed a little help with execution.

I got this for our off-the-grid cabin -- what a great choice! It casts plenty of light for most tasks, reading, or lighting your way to the outhouse. It also packs down nice and small for storage and holds a charge well. Will definitely be investing in a few more of these so we aren't so reliant on candles or fuel/battery camp lanterns!

I got this chair to replace the heavy camp chair I was lugging on hikes -- what a great move! This chair is super light, very compact, and pretty comfortable. I would say that if you want to do some serious lounging the back isn't high enough, but if you want to be able to sit in comfort off the ground, this chair is an excellent choice.

Size Purchased: 12

Based on the reviews my son decided to size down (from 13 to 12) -- definitely the right decision. It was a little worrying looking at them out of the box, but once he tried them on they were great. The extra width and the soft stretchy upper meant they were just right, fit like a glove. And he loves the look, too.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large

These were really cute and quite comfortable, but they were a touch large -- not by much, but enough that if they stretched out at all they would be flopping around a little. Definitely recommend sizing down a half size.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Connecting up to my wireless speakers is a hassle so I was pleasantly surprised when it was super easy with these headphones. Love that! Also, the neck thingy really does help hold them in place during exercise, and you can't beat wireless headphones when you're at the gym. So far no quality issues.

Fit: Runs large

I've had Reefs before and loved them, and these don't disappoint. The retro sneaker style goes with all kind of outfits, and they're pretty comfortable. Perhaps not as cushioned as other Reefs, but not bad. The canvas is a bit stiff but it still didn't rub or create hot spots, which is good. I expect they will soften up a bit with wear. Like most Reefs they run a bit large, so I sized down a half size from my usual and they fit perfectly.

I rented an entry level version of this boot and liked the fit well enough I decided to go for these for backcountry touring. The fit is just as good -- perfect for a narrow heel and wider forefoot -- although the boot is a bit stiffer than I expected, but that's what is needed for what I'm planning on doing on skis. Hoping this will loosen up a little, and I think I'll be putting in some performance insoles to enhance the fit.

I have been looking for a comfortable, lightweight day pack for hiking, biking, and nordic touring, and am so glad I waited until I found this pack! It's very comfortable on, you barely know it's there, and it looks like the mesh straps mean this pack won't be too hot to haul around trails in the summer. I am generally not a huge fan of hydration packs -- never really got them to work for me -- so the hydration aspect of this pack wasn't really a factor in my choosing it. However, I'm definitely sold on this system -- easy to use, and the bite valve is by far the best I've ever encountered. I'll definitely be putting it to good use from now on!

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

These boots were the first in about 15 years for my husband, so he doesn't have a whole lot to compare it to. However, he did find that, when trying boots on, that Atomic boots seemed to suit his foot the best. He has nothing but good things to say about them, although he did feel that they are a little softer than expected for 120 flex boots. The walk/ride feature was tested out on a couple of bootpacks and while it was somewhat helpful, it wasn't really earth-shattering. One thing he really likes about them is how much lighter they are than his ancient Langes, but like I said that comparison probably isn't terribly helpful.
