The Osprey Shuttle 32 is a beast of a bag. If you need to pack your life with you wherever the destination may be, look here. The Shuttle is feature rich, and exhibits the quality Osprey is known for. However, beware, this bag has liability of oversize charges from the airlines. The Osprey Shuttle 32 is a great solution if you have a high volume need for packing your cargo around.

I had been looking at the Dynafit Feline shoe for some time, & finally decided to buy a pair. I could not be happier with these shoes. As the other reviews have pointed out, the shoe does run small & on the narrow side. My foot is small & narrow so this is not a problem, the fit for me is outstanding. The Feline is very ligh and nimble. After putting in several miles tromping around in them in summer heat, I am surprised at how well they breathe for a Gore shoe. The Vibram sole that rounds out the Feline is awesome for overall performance in a variety of terrain. The detail and quality of this shoe is signature Dynafit.

I had been eyeing the Dynafit Feline's for a bit and am very pleased that I decided to purchase a pair. These shoes ooze quality, craftsmanship, and a style that is very Dynafit if you know the brand. Like other reviews have pointed out, they do run small and on the narrow side. This is great for me as I wear a size 8 and have a B width foot, so this shoe fits my foot like a glove. I love how light and nimble the shoe is. I am also pleased that my experience after tromping around for several miles in these shoes, they do not run overly "hot" for a Gore shoe which was a concern. The Vibram sole adds to the build of this shoe and eats up a variety of different terrain. All in all I couldn't be more pleased, and would recommend to anyone with the foot shape that is best suited for this platform.

The Osprey Shuttle 32 is a beast of a bag. It is great if you are looking to pack your life around with you wherever it is that you might be going. The storage capacity speaks for itself. Feature package is pretty self explanatory, I can't find many features I would like to have in addition to what the current build is. Beware, when fully packed this thing is a beast to lug around, and you will most definitely be dinged from the airlines when checking depending on what your cargo might be. Nonetheless if you need to take your house with you, this bag is a great sherpa for the job.

My spouse was recently shopping for a handful of easy, casual dresses to wear while spending a long stint in the mid-Atlantic part of the country where July & August are hot & humid. She picked up a Patagonia Spright dress for this purpose, but was quickly disappointed once she tried it on. She fits most casual dresses quite well in the 4 to 6 size range. This one did not work at all, with the overwhelming comment being "not flattering". She picked up some other dresses from NAU and Lole and liked those much better.

If you know Carhartt products, you will love these Twill Work shorts for the summer. They have a firm hand when you first get them, but will soften after a few washes. The twill fabric is rugged, just what you would expect from Carhartt. I am 5'10", 135 lbs and I feel these shorts run a bit small in the waist. I went with the 34 waist and the fit is very good. Just enough room to tuck your shirt in comfortably, and I always wear a belt to fine tune the fit. These shorts are definitely on the longer side. They fall probably 1.5 to 2 inches past my knee cap, sitting comfortably on my hips. Work stylie, durable product, and at $30, how can you go wrong? I would highly recommend these if you like longer style Twill walk shorts a la Dickies and Ben Davis.

I love winter beanies. Specifically I love winter hats with poms. I don't wear a helmet when I ride, thus my affinity for hats. I was looking for something new to add to my collection and landed on the Coal Freezin Beanie. Like the other Coal products I own, the Freezin exhibits the same degree of Coal quality and style. I find the hat to be surprisingly light and breathable as well.. I got the white color, in person versus the image on backcountry are spot on in my opinion. As a previous review said the pom is huge, and it is. Overall if you like pom beanies, this is as fresh as they come.

Carhartt overalls are an item everybody should have in their closet. I have had two pair of the denim, and a pair of the traditional duck overalls. They are hands down the most durable and functional bottoms you can have. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a pair of pants that can do it all, and last forever. Fit in the overalls is pretty true to size against standard Carhartt bottoms. I would size up for a bit more comfort and freedom of movement if you need.

After owning and testing a few technical hoodies (Arcteryx Fugitive for example), I am sold on the M3 Hoody from NAU. This garment is extremely comfortable, thermal property is outstanding, and it is very stylish. Like the majority of NAU products, the M3 has a more tailored/athletic fit. I am 5'10 and 135 lbs, size medium fits me like a glove. The athletic fit of the M3 makes it a great thermal mid layer, and fits nicely under a shell. It is also a great stand alone/travel piece. The M3 is fashioned from Merino Wool, thus the price tag. Nonetheless, I would recommend this product to anyone, it is a great add to your closet.

This shirt by Discrete is nice, however it is nothing special. It is fashioned from a light weight cotton, and has that flannel feel. The pearl buttons are a nice feature, however they are heavy against the lightweight nature of the material. Fit is pretty true to size, I am a medium (5'10 130 lbs) and went with the Dapper Black color. Fit runs a bit longer in length. My complaint is this would be a better product if it was built from a heavier cotton/flannel.

After experimenting with an old Kelty Explorer, mainly to see if my 19 month old daughter would actually like it, I arrived at the Deuter Kid Comfort 1. So far it has been great. I find this carrier has all you need regarding storage features for short to medium excursions, and carries the weight nicely. It is not as fully featured as some other carriers. This particular model does not feature an automatic kick stand when you remove the pack to put it down, and is not compatible with the additional Deuter sun shade if I am not mistaken. The most important thing is the kiddo loves being in it for our outside adventures. This is a great product if you are looking for something well designed, and a bit lower profile than some of the other carriers.

I had an old roommate that used to run a three finger glove, and I chidded him endlessly on the hill for wearing them. It looks like I was the fool all along as the Seth Pro Model 3 Finger design is the answer. I have poor circulation in my hands (thanks to many seasons of wearing substandard gloves), and nothing ruins my ski day like cold hands. I have often thought about wearing mittens, but I prefered the dexterity of a full finger glove. That problem is now solved with the Seth Pro 3 Finger glove. They have great dexterity, an under the cuff gauntlet, and warm! The integrated wrist leashes are also a killer feature. I had a pair of Hestra AB Pro gloves prior to these, and as Seth say's once you are in Hestra you won't use anything else. Would you actually disagree with Seth Morrison? I think not.

I was looking for some new ski pants to replace my Orage Benji pants for the season and am happy to have found the Switch Pant by Peak Performance. I have been wearing this pant for about three weeks now and have only positive comments. The fit on this pant is outstanding. I am approximately 5'10 135 lbs and went with the medium size. There is ample size in the waist for me and appreciate the external side waist adjust tabs. The key for me here was the length. The bottom hem of the pant hits the top of my boot perfectly. I have always found similar pants to run too long for me. The kick patch is fantastic as it is more minimal than a traditional alpine pant, but still provides great edge protection. The 80g insulation package is nice and comfortable. If you get too warm the mesh backed inner leg vents are massive and very effective at dumping heat. I went with the dark ocean color, it is a rich navy blue, and is a great alternative to black. Articulated knees, a variety of pockets, and great weather protection round out the Switch, and will make it the go to in my closet for sure. Peak Performance really does make a tremendous product, check them out for yourself.

The Patagonia products for kids are great. I picked up both a kids down sweater and the Reverse Puff Ball suit for my 9 month old daughter. I initially purchased a 12 month size in the down sweater. The fit is pretty true and she will go in to the jacket nicely. Based on that I picked up the Reverse Puff Ball in the same size, 12 months. After getting the suit and checking it out, I am convinced a three year old could fit into it. The suit is great and keeps her warm, Patagonia quality speaks for itself, just watch the size. Otherwise you might be hooking up your favorite neighborhood leprechaun up with something to keep them warm during the winter.
