Ingrid J's Bio

Grew up tromping around the smaller mountains of Vermont. Moved to Seattle when I was 13 found the real deal with these western mountains. Traded in my snowboard for a set of tele skis and havent strapped on a board since. I have a pretty boring job but the time off lets me be a world traveler and explore different countries a couple times per year. I can also call in and skip work when the snow is too good to pass up! Called my boss once at 4am when I just had to ski baker the year it got 27" in 24 hrs....epic.

Tight squeeze
5 5

Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 125 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

Yes these pants are tight but that's what I tell myself when I roll them on. I wear these xc skiing and winter running and they are amazing. They spring my leg forward when running and when xc skiing I can just wear these and gaiters and that's all I need. They do feel like you are being cut in half when you sit down but they are high waisted so they sit at the actual waist line not hip line. The discreet black is more flattering as well as normal looking which I prefer over the other tacky splashy designs from this brand.

Winter perfection
5 5

Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 125 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

Thank you to Backcountry.com for hand selecting me to review this peice of gear for the benefit of the Backcountry.com community.

I took this bad boy up for a ski-marathon and wore this along with a thin short sleeved base layer underneath. After a warm 40 degree day and 16 sweaty ski miles in, all I needed to do was unzip the neck at one point to cool off. I was the perfect temperature the whole day. The fit is feminin and oh so flattering. After the long slog I headed to the bar and didn't feel out of place what so ever. I actually felt nice with the the sleek black color and shaply cut. The back is a little longer than the front so bending over to tie up boots doesn't mean a cold draft up the back. I wore this all day skiing and sweating, Wore it to dinner, Then wore it again the next day for a long hike. Not only is it soft and comfy it also doesn't stink what so ever!! And I was sweating pretty hard core. When I was hiking in leavenworth it was freezing cold on my face but my core temp was just right. This is the perfect balance in a performance base layer for minor activities to heavy duty sweat-fest. The sizing is spot on (I'm 5ft 4 125 lbs). Small was perfect in every way. i almost forgot to mention the thumb hole which can add some warmth overall on blustery days. The ONE thing I would have liked to see on here is a small pocket for ID or quick access to Chapstick....or an iPhone. It's not necessary to have but it would be nice. Overall. You want the best, most comfortable, practical, yet flattering base layer? BUY THIS NOW.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I wanted to love this bag so much and am a little sad its not gonna work out for me. CONS: the bag is very floppy, there is no support behind the wool so the wool fabric feels thin and floppy. if i put anything remotely pointy i fee it would tear the fabric. There is no loop on the top of the bag either (which i was told there was a loop)
PROS: the leather is nice on the bottom of the bag and does protect the bottom portion. the buckles and hardware are nice and make the bag very visually appealing. The sheep patter is EVERYTHING i wanted and so bold and cool looking. There is also a little inside pocket for small items.

This bag would be so much better if it were a little smaller, the fabric with some form of lining for protection and the leather straps a little shorter. the cost didnt bother me until i saw the thin wool, if it werent for that then i would have been more inclined to keep the bag.

Well crafted
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I have worn my Hunter Wellies for years and they still are as comfortable as the day I bought them. I live in Seattle and walk 45 mins to work at times and when it's pouring I trudge through the rain in these. They are very comfortable to walk in and they keep my feet dry and warm. I also use them for horseback riding. Sure they aren't stiff like leather but honestly these are what I wear every time I ride and I love that! I have plenty of calf room which allows me to wear thick big socks for added comfort. Need rain boots, these are the ones to buy! True to size to stick with your regular sizing.

Crisp and clean
5 5

I needed a couple nice crisp shirts for travel/volunteer work and I got a few of these in white. Although it was jammed into a bag for many many days when I finally wore it, it wasn't that wrinkled! The crisp white was nice against the hot sun and as much as I was sweating in 90 degree heat I didn't feel gross at all. The shirt kept me cool and didn't cling to my sweaty body. I can add this to my travel "go to" pile. Fit is flattering and not boxy at all!

Supreme
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I already wrote a review on these shorts but realized I somehow reviewed a different pair in mens....oops
I love these shorts even more since my last review. They have been worn to shreds and they are holding it together. I've hand washed them so many times and am always pleased when I lay them in the sun they dry pretty darn quick. They have a little stretchy give to them so when sitting they aren't tight and restrictive. I like the small little pockets which don't home my bulky iPhone case but they keep a little stash of toilet paper and Chapstick perfectly. These are my go to hiking/travel shorts and the day the butt seem rips will be a sad day for me if these ever stop being made. Well worth the money! The length is perfect on me (5ft4) as they hit a little above the knee so they aren't short shorts but they also are not that awkward length that's unflattering either. I love them.

Quick dry

I bought These for my husband and he just wore them 4 weeks straight in a variety of conditions. He said they lightweight. Extremely comfortable to walk in. Dry quickly after water sports and are very comfortable. He likes the adjustable ankle strap and the breathability. He's worn them with black socks to pass them off as nice dinner shoes and it worked in a pinch. Great travel shoe when heading to hot, wet, dry, dusty, bumpy places.

Perfect fit
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I love this bag in every way. I've been traveling extensively and this has been my go to carry on bag and everyday use bag. The bag may appear small but it holds a whole lot of stuff. I can slip my iPad in the inner sleeve and have my wallet and phone in the small outter pocket and litter the inside with whatever and I've never had any discomfort even with big bottles of water jammed in there. I would like the two small outer side pockets to be bigger but that's my only "complaint." I also appreciate that the zippers zip like a giant U so you can fully access anything in your bag without pulling everything out in frustration. Well designed. Sturdy. Pleasing to the eye. Comfortable. Practical. Unisex.
What more do you need?

I didn't have any issues with these slipping off at all. I've been wearing them around dusty dirty streets in cambodia for 3.5 weeks and they've been the most used and comfortable shoes. I can wear them ALL day with ALL day comfort. The only minus is when they get soaked and you walk through deep sand. Then they rub a bit but then they dry and its fine.

Sex
5 5

I would never consider myself a sexy person by any means. My sister was always the sexy one and I was the tomboy dragging behind. I feel so sexy in this top without looking like a sexpot and looking for men to ogle me. It's flattering. Good coverage. Great support. The teal is vibrant and looks sooo good with light skin (for those Norwegians out there). Love that there aren't bulky strings to tie and look all bunchy through a shirt. It's flush to the skin yet still adjustable. Great buy for the price!!

I'm really loving all the bold patterns from this brand. The brand for sure seems to be geared to petite narrow frames and at times little coverage. Threes shorts are so cute. Low coverage, not skimpy but the perfect amount of butt cheeks peaking out yet flattering. The back pattern is different from the front so don't expect the same purole flower all the way around. Good quality and great colors. Mix and match with lots of colors and styles. Im 5ft 4 with a bit of a bubble butt but no hips to speak of and I got med. I think this brand may run a wee bit small or I'm just gaining weight....

I really wanted to love this top and I think it could be flattering maybe on someone smaller busted or super bust. My 34c boobs just hung in there and looked a little sad and at some point felt like they would fall out at any point. Didn't feel like too much support. Black was a sexy color and maybe it's just to sexy for me but I personally didn't like it on me. It's all personal opinion. My husband said it was super hot but that didn't mean anything to me cause at any point I felt like my nips were gonna show....although they were well covered.

I love the top in this bikini set. (Bottoms not so much...See review) the top is very flattering and gives great support. I'm 34c and med was perfect fit. The colors are vibrant more yellows and orangy on top. I like the mix in patterns. Makes this wearable with solid print bottoms in a variety of colors. This can be paired the Grrrrraceful sea bottoms from Maaji which I also bought but am returning. Bottoms are just too skimpy.

I loved the pattern and was so excited to get these bottoms. But there was no image of the the back of the bikini bottoms. Well. If you are tiny and comfortable showing most of yor butt cheeks these bottoms are for you. Not much coverage. I'm not bug by any means by im not rail thin which is what these bottoms would look good on. Maybe also not so cute with my white pasty butt cheeks but still. Was hoping for a wee bit more coverage. Pattern is amazing. Super cool. Good quality as well.

This dress is a great travel dress as well as something that I can toss on some cool nylons and a blazer and wear to work. The blue color is vibrant and the shape is flattering. For the price buy one in each color!!! It's also nice for cooler weather cause you can put some leggings on and a warm sweater.
