These are the waders my girlfriend uses. She absolutely loves them. They have held up very well over time and the quality of the materials and craftsmanship is top notch. With a full size run you're guaranteed to find the size that fits you best.

These breath well enough to be used on hot days but also work very well in cold temps. We recently were fishing the Provo river in temps well below zero and with the appropriate layers on she was nice and toasty. I highly recommend these if you spend a good amount of time on the river. Simms never disappoints.

She is 5'6" and 120lbs. The small fit her very well.

My girl loves these. She wears them all the time. The material is soft, stretchy, and breathes well. These would be ideal for the climbing gym or as a layer for skiing. They dry quickly and won't hold onto moisture. The boot cut (Capri) length is ideal for skiing.

The first time out skiing this year I realized how dismal my girlfriends layer selection was. By this I mean she had 1 top and no leggings to layer with. Being that I love my base layers from Arc'teryx I instantly knew where to look. Though these aren't designed specifically for skiing they still work well. They offer some warmth and lots of comfort under your ski pants. The material breathes well and dries quickly. They look great and are so comfortable she never wants to take them off.

She is 5'6" with long legs and weighs 120lbs. The small fits perfect.

I gave this jacket to my girlfriend and she can't say enough positive things about it. The stretch material ensures you can move without restriction. The insulation is warm but packs small making this a great layering or traveling piece. Oh, and the H2No does an excellent job repelling any moisture you might encounter while you're venturing into the wilderness.

This jacket looks great. You can wear it on the slopes with confidence that you're protected from even the worst elements. It's stylish enough to wear right into the bar or pub for an apres session, and afterwards you can wear this to dinner with your mates.

I purchased a medium. She is 5'6" and 120lbs and the medium fit well. If you want a snug fit the small would fit someone her size.

I gave these to my girlfriend and she loves them. They offer great support, aren't too heavy, and are very well made. The waterproof liner keeps water and snow out and makes these great for around town boots in the winter. These are not heavily insulated but with warm socks they suffice in colder temps.

I gave this to my girlfriend and she loves it. In the past she had tried some base layers from Under Armour and wasn't overly impressed. Reluctantly she tried this layer and now she's loving it. This not only offers tons of warmth in a thin package but she says the materials have been improved over previous versions. The quality is great and for the price you're hard pressed to find a better under layer.

If you know someone who gets cold feet and is always looking for a way to warm them up then look no further. These slippers not only look great but pack tons of comfort and warmth into a stylish package. They are constructed from awesome materials and should offer years of comfort and warmth.

I gave this as a gift and have received great feedback. The materials used are soft and the vest provides lots of warmth. This is not a technical piece but rather a fashion statement that offers some function and warmth.

This top is the right amount of insulation for a lot of days. Under a shell jacket I can wear this alone down to around 28 degrees Fahrenheit. On colder days I'll add another layer over top for added insulation.

The fit is tight enough to keep you warm but not so tight you feel restricted. I love the hoodie and gaitor that are build in. On cold storm days this design is great.

These boot cut leggings are perfect for the majority of days on the slopes. They offer enough warmth for most days and are super comfortable. The boot cut is the perfect length keeping your leggings out of the top of your boots. On really cold days I wear shorts over top to add a little more warmth.

I've been riding Look Pivot binding for years now. I keep coming back to them since they always release when you need and never release when you don't want them to. The design of these bindings allows for industry leading elastic rebound which means your never going to pre-release when you don't want to. This means you'll stick all the landings you want and only release when you absolutely need to. When you need to come out these always let go. The turntable heel piece is a knee saver. Oh, and you also have one of the lowest stack heights in the industry so you're right on top of the ski.

If there is one drawback to these bindings it's that they are hard to get into in deep snow or on a steep slope. The turntable heel piece is harder to line up than most. I gave these to my girlfriend and she loves them.

I've been wearing this jersey for a few months now and I love it. It breathes well and has ideal venting in the arm pits. The material is soft to the touch but has proven to be very durable. If you want a jersey for the cooler days that keeps you warm while still breathing super well this is a great one to consider.

If you're looking for a lightweight and comfortable grip this is a great option. I've been riding them a while now and haven't had any durability issues. They absorb vibration very well helping to reduce forearm fatigue. These are also the lightest grips I've used so if you want a light weight grip these are an excellent option. Removing them from the handlebar is a pain and is really the only drawback I've seen while using them.

Patagonia nailed it with this bag. It has plenty of room for a days worth of supplies on the river. The construction and materials are typical Patagonia quality. You can carry a few river sodas too. Everything you need for a day on the river, nothing you don't need.

This hoodie is perfect for when the days start to cool off. It's just thick enough to ward off the chill on most fall and spring days or cool mountain nights in the summer. It looks great and has held up well.

If you're looking for a super thick hoodie then you might want to look for something else. Now if you're wanting something to keep you warm before those early morning rides or after a late evening ride this is perfect. It's pretty thin but plenty warm. The fit is spot on and isn't too large or too tight. It feels like it will hold up to years of use.

If you want a stylish hoodie for before or after a ride this is perfect. I also love wearing this on cooler days when dirt jumping. Clean, classic design that will never get old. 100% awesome!
