Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm a double-buffer. One that absorbs all the outside moisture and one that stays dry. This system keeps my face warm and protected, but often leads to the feeling of being choked out. The Marmot buff solves this issue. I have no idea what the fabric is, but it's thick, breathable, soft, and so protective. Great length so it can be folded over the head under the helmet and still lays long on the neck. Beautiful rich colors.

Line makes great ski poles. As someone who often ended up with those silver and yellow rental poles for most of my season, having a pretty pair of pointy sticks adds a little extra to my day. Although I'm not much of a grabber, the grab tabs are great for general skiing, picking of the nose, etc. They are light, durable, and the screw off baskets make for a seamless transition from hard pack to powder. It does take a bit of time to get used to the weight of the powder baskets.

I ended up with a pair of these when my brother lent them to me and I "forgot" to give them back. Little did I know before I read his review below that they were his favorite. Wearing guilt has never felt so good. These glasses are lightweight, take a beating, and seem to look great on every face size. I guess I'll have to get another pair and return his now.

If you read any of my other reviews, it is common fact that I love longer jackets, especially for skiing. The Excellerator has the length, the feminine cut, and the durability to fight off the elements. I'm 5'3 (at best), with quads and small waist. I like a size small. It leaves plenty of room for 2 layers of long underwear and a micro-puff. Pairs great with the Spire Pants.

If I have my way, I'm usually dressed as a ninja when I ski. But that's not to say that I don't like a little flare. These mittens add a really cute element of style. They are super warm. They have the necessary nose wiper. And are always a great conversation starter on the chairlift.

Every time I wear this coat I get complemented. People always say you always have great lifestyle coats from Marmot...but the bonus about this coat is it's for skiing! I love the longer length in the back. The military style is right on trend. While I wouldn't wear this on a heavy weather day, it's definitely warm enough and weather proof enough for resort laps.

As I write this, mounds of snow are pilling up outside. It's only November and having this coat in my arsenal is a life saver. It feels like you've walked outside wrapped up in your favorite down comforter. It's stylish enough to wear around town, but has the technical components to keep you toasty warm.

These poles not only look good, but feel great as well.

Fully adjustable. The locking system is at the top instead of the bottom which creates a better swing feel.

Grab tabs are awesome for holding, even if you aren't one to grab your skis.

Having Pollard's art on your poles is also a nice bonus.

I steal this sweater from my mom's closet about once a month. It's the perfect black sweater: warm, touches of style, and super soft. I'm usually a small top, but love the loose fit of a large. Perfect ski trip sweater as it works both as a warm layer and a nice going out to dinner piece.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I recently used the Tease for two weeks training at Windells in Mt Hood, OR. I'm used to skiing steep, rocky terrain, and this was my first time focusing purely on park skiing. I was completely out of my comfort zone, but the Tease was a great ski to learn how to ski park jumps. It gave great springy-ness, was light and felt like you were spinning with nothing on your feet. And when I needed a break from taking hard crashes, it still turned well outside of the park.

During the winter photoshoot for the Marmot Winter 15 line, we had to wear a new outfit to dinner each night to capture lifestyle shots. I tried to find a way to include this sweater into my outfit every single night. I was attached to it. I still am attached to it. It's incredibly soft, warm, and the style is perfect. Now it just needs to get cold enough for me to wear it.

The yoga pant market is saturated. What sets these apart is the quality and fit. They stay up while you downward dog. The pants are a wonderful thickness for those winter classes. They don't pile. They don't loose elasticity. They are a level above most of the pants that are on the market.
