Take care of these boots and they will take care of you. Well made, sturdy, and supportive.

I would recommend a leather conditioner or grease after wearing these in wet conditions- doing so will keep the leather protected and restore its water resistant properties.

I have narrow feet and I find that Danners have a larger width to their boots but with some footbeds they fit me (and my weird feet) just fine!

It is light and packs down well however if its pouring constant rain you are going to get wet. Good for a pinch because of how easy it is to carry.

Go with a laminate if you're looking for something water proof though.

The Large fits me great.

The only sock I wear.

I live in these things. Super durable have survived constant use for almost 2 years now. I wear them with just about anything.

The merino wool makes these super breathable. Antimicrobial so you can just air them out on a long trip and throw them on again the next day. The wool helps keep your feet dry and dry feet means no blisters.

Easy to use. Durable. Comes apart easily and fits in a backpack no problem.

Hasn't let me down yet!

Doesn't ride up anywhere, easy to adjust, and durable. Perfect for gals that enjoy climbing year round because there is plenty of adjustability to acomadte all your winter mountaineering gear. Compared to some other harnesses that I've used in the past I have much more freedom of movement in this one.

I've taken a couple of falls in it and it has yet to show any wear.

I have to disagree with the 2 reviews below me. I've used this bra for the last 2 summers as a base layer to go under my yellow nomex while wildland fire fighing and I couldn't be more pleased with it.

You are probably thinking wool? For a bra?? Yes. It keeps you from smelling and its keeps you cool and dry. The fibers in merino are different than normal wool so it isn't itchy like your favorite holiday sweater.

True to size, comfortable, and moves with me without having to be readjusted. I have lived in this bra nearly every day for around 10 months (counting both fire seasons) and it has yet to start breaking down or show any wear.

I typically work in conditions that very hot, both in radiant heat and weather and I sweat A LOT. The merino wool keeps me from getting hot and drenched in sweat as it wicks away moisture from sweat and pulls it to the outer most layer so it can evaporate.

In summary this is an awesome piece and Icebreaker is an outstanding brand that makes quality products.

They do everything that they claim. On top of that they aren't flimsy so you aren't going to break anything when you are going from hike mode back to ride mode. The guardians make getting to your favorite out of bounds pow stash simple and then let you switch back over to the resort without missing a beat or loosing time having to switch your set ups. Get it all in one. That being said these are solid bindings. If you are looking for something lightweight this isn't necessarily the best choice.

I got this in the Charcoal/Black/Oxblood in a Large and it fits perfect. The length is everything I dream of in a base layer, its long enough so I can bend down to buckle my boots without getting a nasty draft or exposing my stomach when I reach for things.

On top of that if you haven't tried a Merino base layer I suggest you do. I never get sweaty and I never get the chills. To sum it up its perfect, warm, and requires minimal washing which equals more time getting my shred on.

These are so cute on and instantly up the "babe" level of any outfit. The peep toe is adorable and perfect for the warmer months. If you put these on just expect to be stopped and to turn heads. They look equally amazing with shorts or a skirt, and pack quiet a punch with above the knee dresses as well.

As far as the sizing goes I am usually a 7.5 or a 7 in most shoes but I had to size up to the 8 in these, the 7's fit but I couldn't zip the back over my heel. I do have a high arch though so that may be a factor. I went with the "Black Color" but I am so in love with them that I am trying to justify getting a second pair in the "Black Combo."

Ladies! If you are looking for a hoodie to shred hard in and then be able to rock for a night out then this is it! It's long enough so it covers your booty and can be paired with tights and some heeled boots for a killer look. The fit is exactly what I was hoping for- long and baggy without being too baggy and venturing into thug territory. The material is pretty thick and will shed water if you eat it in the powder, and on warm days you can wear it without putting a jacket on over it.

For reference I am 5'8'' and I went with the Large however I think the Medium would have been plenty big enough as well. The Large is a little roomy but I had wanted that.
