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.

... but really, just a touch. This is a great jacket for temps in the 30s (under a shell) or 50s-60s (alone) but if you're looking for some serious insulation, this is not for you. I know, it says "LT" -- take that seriously, and if you need something truly warm, go for the AR version instead.
That being said, this jacket is fantastic when you just need a little warmth - super lightweight, very breathable, and very easy to layer over. Truly a 3-season jacket that can span a range of conditions. It's also very easy to layer over. I got the non-hooded version for maximum versatility.
Like some Arc'teryx items, the fit is a bit of a mystery -- some things run small, while others are large; this one is in the latter category. If you're between sizes, I would recommend sizing down rather than up.

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

I got this for my daughter (when it went on sale) for her to use on a planned trip this spring -- so while I can't comment on it in actual use, I can say that it's definitely the weight we were looking for and, when we tested it out in the living room, it was easy enough to set up and break down, and was definitely roomy enough for her. Looking forward to an actual field test, but am confident it will work well!

Fit: True to size

I don't buy any other kind of socks any more. I have to say that I love my Smartwools a little more, but these definitely do the trick -- and I love the colors and patterns. They will probably get most use as everyday socks, but could easily do double-duty for hiking.

I got these for my son, who was trying to find something a little more fashionable that the baggy joggers he usually wears. The good part is that even thought the fit is much slimmer, these are so stretchy and fit so well, he doesn't miss the baggy pants. They look great and feel great, what more could you want? He is 6'0" and a healthy 190 pounds, and the 34 fits perfectly.

I got this because I now have a really nice snowboard and am afraid to leave it out in front of a lodge even long enough to just duck in to go to the bathroom. The cable isn't super thick but it will be enough to deter the casual impulse swiping of the board. Setting the combo was easy enough, and it's definitely small and light enough to make it easy to bring along. Will be testing it out this weekend but don't anticipate any problems.

I'm an ex-Hoka lover -- went through two pairs that I loved before they changed the design for more mainstream appeal. The fit of these has everything I loved about the Hokas -- has a nice wide toebox, but without allowing your foot to swim around in the shoe. I'm afraid I'm a little on the fence about the zero drop; definitely felt it a little when running, but wasn't an issue walking. Overall a great ride, and a worthy replacement.

These are excellent underwear -- fit great, dry quickly, comfy. All the reviews were so great I had to give them a try. However, I'm not sure what I was expecting ... this is just underwear. I got 'em on sale, not sure it's worth spending the money on full price.

Love that moment when I slip into these .... aaaah! UGG sheepskin feels so good. Only reason this gets 4 stars instead of 5 is that the sole is surprisingly thin -- so these aren't great for standing or walking much, but perfect for relaxing around the house. I did NOT size down on these, and that was definitely the right call.

I got this for my son after exchanging from the initial XL -- the XXL in this fits smaller than most XL. Length is good but fit is definitely slim. But now that he has the size right, he loves this and wears it all the time.

These pants offer a great blend of comfort with a touch of compression. They aren't as supportive as CW-X tights I've owned in the past, but they are far more comfortable to wear. However, they still feel like they are working to support muscles and joints. If you're not a fan of the stuffed sausage feel of serious compression tights, these are a good choice.

I got these to replace my 4-year-old Lexas -- they have come a long way since then! Strap design is much improved, really like the flexible rubber design. The ratchet design seems to be much better, too. There's a ton of padding on the bottom, which does, I noticed, make a difference. I just threw these on a new board and took them out, so I haven't had time to adjust all the settings yet, but imagine that will make them even better. Hard to say how much of what I experienced was the new board and how much was the bindings, but they felt great on the snow, super responsive and very comfortable. I got them in black but kind of wish I'd gone for the cheetah look -- just buy them quick before your only choice is the Moss Burgundy, LOL.

I actually just got the men's version of this because the women's was sold out in my size, but I imagine it's much the same. Took it out today for the first time and had a BLAST. I can tell this will be great in the deep stuff, but the not-so-big surprise is that it is an amazing carving board as well.I was worried that it would be stiff or hard to turn -- not at all!! It was super fun on all surfaces, from groomers to piles of powder on the sides, and rode through variable spots without a hitch--even though it's a very lightweight board, it has a very solid and stable feel. This board loves to turn and once it's on edge, holds like there's no tomorrow. Get this quick, before it's gone!

The best thing you can say about a helmet is that you don't even notice that it's there -- and that's definitely the case with the Range. I put it on and it feels like it fits like a glove, thanks to the adjustable shell. It looks great, too -- no more bobblehead! I have a fairly large head and the Smith helmet I had before looked kind of silly, it was so big. Part of the low-profile fit may be the way the earpads fit -- which could be part of the complaints about using audio pods. I haven't tried putting my Skullcandy pods in there yet, so can't comment on that ... having that feature is not super-important to me, so I'm not too worried if it doesn't work out. It does play nicely with my Julbo goggles, and the goggle clip (more like a bungee) in the back is easy to use.

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

Gore-Tex, lots of down, and coverage to the knees -- exactly what you need for really nasty winters. If you live in Chicago, Toronto, Burlington, you will NOT be cold in this coat! I would say it would be great in temperatures well below zero. It has a super high quality feel and flattering lines. I loved the dark blue color, too -- kind of a purply blue, very nice.
That being said, I decided to return the jacket, mainly because of the fit. This coat has a relaxed fit, which is pretty different from the usual Arc'teryx fit. I usually wear a large and it fits just right, but I felt like I was swimming in the large of this coat. Although the fit was pretty flattering, I felt like it was just too much coat. And sadly, when I went down to a medium, it was just a touch too small to be really comfortable or allow for any layering under it at all (although it looked fabulous). Although it's a bit of overkill for the winters I usually have to deal with, I would have still kept it if I could have settled on the right size.

Before I got this jacket I considered a number of others, but then this one caught my eye and I decided to give it a chance. Great move! It has the great style of other jackets of this type, but at a much more affordable price. The interior is great, with satin and sherpa fleece lining, and it is the perfect length, about three inches above the knee. No more cold thighs on freezing days! It also has tons of pockets, a must for me. I got it in the grey color and am glad that I did -- it's a little less casual than the green, and will go with anything. I was a little worried about the size since by the size chart my size wasn't available, but took a chance on the next size down and it fits perfectly. So I would take a little off the size chart if you're trying to decide, maybe order a size down. The only downsides to this jacket are the kind of iffy finishing on the button holes, and the fact that the front storm flap buttons down. Also, the hem kind of bunches of a little when you walk -- not a big deal, just something I noticed a little. And like I say, for the price, it's a steal.

This shirt seems very nice -- nice shaping, super lightweight fabric that would make it great for hot weather. But it runs really large -- I ordered a large because that's what I usually wear, and this shirt was just hanging off of me. Returning for a medium!
