I'm an active person that loves going and never stopping. The best places for me to get going is the outdoors.

I got this jacket in the Forest/Agave for a girl I know and she loves it. Says it's super soft and keeps her warm down to probably 20F without any extra layers underneath. She uses the jacket all the time now. The coloring on the picture is pretty true to the Forest. The pink and the agave colors are much more tame in person though.

These pants are pretty awesome. Good warmth and mobility in them. Also kept me dry. I will say I have yet to take them in any really wet conditions though. My only gripe is that they run very large. Like I never though ever that I'd get a size small, but I'm gonna roll with a small in these. My pant size is 32ishX30. But if you like that baggy look and feel then just roll with your normal size.

This is my favorite ski I've ever been on. It can be used for anything. High speeds, crud, ice, powder. Note that these aren't going to be the best on each condition, but dang they're just too good overall to pass up. Oh and the graphic makes you feel like your leading a bombing raid that's gonna turn the tide of the war.

I'm 5'8" and got the 175cm

Awesome binding that's great for all I do. They are fairly light and good for freeride. They are the best looking binding out there in my opinion, too!

I put mine (100mm brake) on a pair of 4frnt Turbos 175cm and had to bend the brakes just a titch, but it works great.

Definitely would recommend these to those ready to ski hard

This jacket is very warm and the waterproofing works great for the conditions I've taken it in. The welded seems are very nice.
Very comfortable jacket with lots of mobility. Many pockets.
Sick design!
Powder skirt works and has small snap loops to attach to pants ( I attached mine to my belt loops)
Jacket seems like it runs big. So if you want a more snug fit, size down. Otherwise you'll have room to layer underneath this already warm jacket if ever needed.

The Good
Really stretchy and provides good warmth as base layer or as straight-up winter-outside exercise shirt.

The Bad
The collar reminds of shriveled up bacon. I don't know if I got a stretched out one, but its really buggin me. Also, this shirt really shows off what you have got going on underneath, but I guess we should also recognize that this shirt is meant to provide that athletic fit. So if you're self-conscious about curves and such then I'd size up from what you normally would pick.

I got the Dune/Paprika - M and just an FYI the shirt is more brown than the picture depicts.

If you want a softshell, get this! Every time I put this jacket on, it takes me to my happy place.

The jacket is so soft inside with the fleece lining.
Great warmth w/out bulk - a light base layer is all you need underneath in most temps that I've come across (down to 25F).
Good wind stopper and very water repellant so far. I will say though that I haven't put it through a super wet situation yet.
Super mobility - this jacket let's you move in anyway you want to.
Hood space - Not the largest, but I feel pretty confident a helmet could squeeze in there.
Price - Tears of joy were streaming down my face. Awesome jacket, awesome price!

Oh and I got the Black/Paprika - M and I'm 5'7" and 160 lbs.

Look-
The gloves looks pretty awesome. Every time I put them on I feel like I should start up a motorcycle club. The subtle orange stitching provides good contrast. Orange logo is only on right pointer finger, which provides just enough pop.

Feel-
Hands feel slightly constricted in their movement. They great at gripping ski poles, but other stuff not so much. Not as warm as I would like, but also consider that my hands get cold very easily.

Price-
Awesome! Dang solid glove for this price.

Exclusivity-
I love knowing that these are pretty exclusive (only sold on Backcountry.com). Makes me feel like I'm in-the-know, ya know?

I'm 5'7" (5'8" if its a warm day) and weigh 160 lbs. I got the leopard yellow color in size M and it...

Feels great!
Hood doesn't compress my head when it's up, no restriction in mobility, very soft but not too soft.

Looks great!
I guess leopards look like mustard because that what this jacket looks like. Now don't let that turn you off. The color is very pleasing to the eye. No joke, some random person yelled at me from a car, "love the hoodie!" Needless to say I felt pretty cool at that moment. The cut of the hoodie also won't make you look like a big box like some hoodies can do.

Good function!
Provides all the warmth you'd expect from a pull-over hoodie

I seriously can't think of anything wrong with it...oh wait ya I can. It's wrong that it took me this long to finally find this hoodie

The girl I got this for has enjoyed it. She says that it is very sleek and stylish. Really likes the contrast between black outer and white inner. It has many compartments for whatever. Only beef with it is that the compartment for cash is way too deep. You have to go digging to find, identify, and retrieve your bills.

I got this jacket for my sister and she loves it. She says that it provides her with the perfect amount of warmth for what she needs and it looks nice yet casual. The water-resistance works great as well.

She uses this mostly around town and hasn't had the chance to take it hiking or skiing in spring.

Overall this was a great jacket for her.

The problem with most socks is that when you put them on your feet you don't notice them. And that's nice and all, but let me tell you, you'll notice these when you put them on your feet. My feet are having a love affair with these things. I never knew that a sock could contour to the foot so well.

I can't believe I'm this excited about socks!
