Next season? Wendy, there's still lots of spring skiing to be had! Hitting either Alta or 'Basin this weekend and planning to hit the backcountry for the next few weeks. Thanks for posting up that you love the shirt - I've been eyeing this one and the Gear Slut shirt, but it just seems sooo wrong to buy the Gear Slut shirt for myself. :-)

I bought these specifically to use with snowshoes. I loved that they're Gore-Tex to keep my feet dry without making them sweat. My feet are difficult to fit (fallen arches & they fatigue quickly) and I primarily wear Earth shoes because of it. I tried on LOTS of hiking shoes and was excited to find that these didn't make my feet weak (I use kineseology to shop for shoes). They're super comfy and kept my feet dry when showshoeing, even in deep powder, with or without gaiters. BUT I returned them because the soles SUCK on snow and ice. I almost fell several different times walking across snowy parking lots to get to snowshoe trails! I only used them in snow, so I don't know if they have the same traction issues in mud.

The "Winter Grip" on these boots WORKS! I love how easy they are to get on and off - great for kicking around on the weekends. The only negative thing about them is the fit is not excellent. There's a weird bump where the inside of the ball of my foot lands - not huge, but noticeable. It's almost like they tried to put in arch support but missed on the placement. With my arch support inserts, the bump is not as noticeable...and did I mention the Winter Grip!?

According to the size chart, I should take a medium (I wear an 8 shoe), but it was WAY too big. I had to return the medium and get a small. The small fits great on my bare legs, hiking pants, and insulated snow pants. I think I have an average size calf. I like that the instep strap has a buckle (rather than a string you tie) so it's easy to adjust them to use with different shoes. I've only used these a few times so far, but am happy with them and would buy them again.

I already love this jacket. I received it on Friday and ended up needing it on Saturday. I was doing a 7.5 mile snowshoe hike to scout out the route to a yurt I'm going to soon. I took the jacket along for the heck of it. The hike took longer than expected and when the sun dropped below the ridge, I immediately started getting REALLY cold. I threw on this jacket and a second hat and kept going. The jacket warmed me up quickly, is super lightweight and thin for layering, and comes with a stuff sack for easy packing & compression. After the hike, I wore the jacket into the restaurant and blended right in, i.e., didn't look like I was in "snowshoe gear". Thanks MontBell!

I have one for work, one for the car, one at home, and one for yoga class. I don't go anywhere without one of these. I call them adult sippy cups - they are so easy to use. I can open it, take a drink, and close it one-handed. Also, with the straw, I don't have to tip the bottle upside down like you do with "pop-top" water bottles, which is nice while driving. I drink WAY more water now just because using this thing is so fun.
