Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is the perfect lightweight rain jacket to stash in your climbing, backpacking, or skiing pack, or just clip onto your harness. It's so lightweight, you don't even notice you're carrying it! It has the OR armpit zips right down to your waist so it's easy to get some added breathability without compromising access to your rack on your harness. The lightweight wire in the hood also helps give the hood some added form for keeping the rain out of the eyes. I love OR's stuffing system on most jackets, including this one, where you can stuff the jacket into the pocket and use the loop and clip (or your own biner) to clip it to your harness or on the outside of a pack.

I'm 5'3" and about 135lbs and normally wear my OR jackets in a S, but go this one in a M to fit over my down jackets in case I need it for cold-weather protection. This setup works great and avoids me having to carry an extra jacket in the alpine.

These shorts are the PERFECT hot weather climbing and backpacking short AND they're more flattering than many other women's shorts on the market! Thin yet stretchy material with a drawstring chord inside instead of belt loops means they fit smoothly under a harness or a heavy pack hip strap. Side zipper is out of the way and fits a small bar, chapstick, or some cash. The perfect length for hot-weather climbing; as short as they can be while still longer than harness leg loops. If between sizes, get the smaller size as the stretch will look better than a bunched-up waist. I should have bought pewter rather than cairn to hide the dirt a bit better, but the dirt washes out easily. My favorite short all told!

This shell is so useful and so effective! I use it for everything: sport and alpine climbing, hiking/backpacking, wearing around town, and even motorbiking! It's durable enough to wear shimmying up cracks and chimneys and stylish enough to wear in town. At 11.2oz, it's not the lightest, most packable shell on the market, but arguably more versatile and durable than something lighter. It is, however, light-weight enough that I took it with me to Thailand in lieu of other jackets?and it proved it's value there too as it's not too hot, but adds just the right warmth when needed and blocks wind so well. I often replace it for my rain jacket too since it has proven effective to keep me dry in light rain storms. Love the stretchy fabric and side zip pockets (they are big enough to hold anything I want). At 5'3? and 135lbs, I got a medium, which is pretty baggy, but still looks good and has plenty of room to layer, which was important for me. For a more fitted look, I'd go with the small. The length is good for staying put underneath a harness to block wind too.

I used to have a favorite pair of outdoor pants through Mountain Hardware, but they stopped making them. Because they were perfect for everything I like to do outside, I kept up hope and kept searching for a pair that stacked up. The Ferrosi pants meet and top my old pair!

The fit is perfect, meaning looks good and is comfortable and everything stays where it ought to. These pants are very stretchy, lightweight, wind resistant and quick to dry. Love the drawstring feature at the bottom of the pantlegs because I can switch them from a long pant to a capri while climbing or hiking without stopping. There's a thin fleece lining around the waistband, which is very comfortable underneath a harness or backpack waiste belt. The waiste sits at the perfect spot for climbing and hiking too. Plus 3, yes 3, zip pockets! I hope OR continues to make these pants for eternity because I never have to think about what pants I'm going to wear when I have the Ferrosi's around. They are my go-to pant.

I literally take this small, lightweight item with me everywhere! I continue to find uses: neck warmer for hiking/ mountaineering (though not very warm), eye cover for travel, nose/mouth cover for polluted air, sweatband, lightweight hat. Good price, great value. Streamlines the pack.

Note that those seeking warmth from harsh alpine conditions should probably go the standard route of a balaclava or fleece neck gaiter as this is indeed lightweight. Great for me as I run hot though.

I bought this jacket 1 yr+ ago as both an all-around jacket and top of the line for my purposes-it has exceeded my expectations. A fashionable rain jacket to wear to work, truly waterproof saved me from unexpected downpours rock climbing, and blocks out the wind while mountaineering in warm and cold conditions with ventilation to keep me dry. It's durable enough to wear rock climbing, hood adjusts as you'd expect to wear over helmets or by itself (brim keeps rain off your face), and side zips are perfect for ventilation adjustments and keeping it out of the way of your harness. Size S also fit me over a light-weight down jacket (I'm 5'3" and 135lbs w broad shoulders).
