Lotte's Bio

I've always loved to be outside, since I learned to stand on my feet... But I got the real passion to adventures from joining the scouts (still am): long hikes, canoeing, kayaking, a little climbing and abseling, geocathing and traveling to see the world.
But my favorite is still hiking, at the best it's about a week out in nowhere -meeting no one (besides you companions)!

Scandinavian nature is where I want to spend most of my time, summer and winter. But the Swiss alps and the world under the Philippine water has also given a great impression.

To get the money to take time off, I work in a danish gear-shop. And here my passion for gear and technical clothing got the posebilety to grow to... I don't know what.. huge bills ;o)

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

This is my new favorite!

A bit snug out of the box, but not that much, and it is perfect after a few uses.

I have used wool sports bras some years now, from ibex and devold. And I have loved them, no more cold, wet chest and back, when putting the pack down for a rest or lunch. I have also loved that I could wear them 24/7, trekking the whole day, and stay on when its time to hit the sleeping bag.

This bra does the job just as well, put it provides way more support, even after 72 straight hours of wear, without restricting like a running bra! And it adds a very nice round shape!!! Wool on the inside for comfort, synthetics on the outside for support.

Perfect for light and heavy trekking, cross country skiing, snowboarding, biking and climbing.
And well, I does a better (and prettier) job for everyday wear, than a normal bra.

For climbing, I somehow feel less vulnerable about the girls with this.

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

I have a bunch of quality jackets from mammut, norr�na, patagonia, 66 north and more. This one is the best powerstrech one I've come across.

The 'hardface' IS more sturdy and firmer than normal powerstretch, it can take a lot more beating from for example rock climbing before it will even begin to look like it's been used. And it does block quite some wind.
It also have the grid interior for better moist transportation and breathability - like a patagonia R1 or capilene 4.

I find the fit perfect; long lean cut, no bunching in the arm pits when its under a shell, tighter fit on the underarms - again no bulk under a jacket, the thumbholes somehow just feels better than in any other jacket i've tried (don't notice there's any fabric in/around my palm). I have long arms, and the sleeves are long enough for me, and to actually use the thumbholes - I don't think shorter arms will be a problem though, since the sleeves are quite slim.

The hood fits tight enough around the face, but has space enough for all of my hair when it's done in the back of my head. And ther's a small brim.

Sizechart is accurate, but it is really an athletic fit! My messures are bust 94cm waist 79cm hip108cm I can use both M & L, but went with the large. I'm 5'9, with a long torso and the L has nice hiplenght, I do normally have a lot of of trouble finding sweaters and jackets that's long enough.

The pictures are accurate too, it IS very bright colors, and the black one is NOT black, it's charcoal like the picture - makes the colored details pop!!

I love this t-shirt for everyday use. It's soft and eco, and the print is flattering to the female shape, actually it's adding to it :o)

The anika fit is at bit longer, slim (but not tight) and have a nice neckline - wide enough to show skin and collarbones, but hight enough, that you don't have to worry about cleavage. Perfect hang out / casual tshirt

The coral color is at bit lighter and and 'faded' - perfect for natural blondes in summer :o) - you'll look like a surfer chick

It's a go-to top! But then I did buy a black one :o)
It's great with a sportsbra hiking - but only daytrips, the 'straps' are not wide enough for at heavy backpack. And it's just as great with skirt and heels!

I bought an M and it fits well (I would wish a very little bit more slim), glad I didn't order a large! B:96 W:79 H:108
Fits loosely, but drapes nice to follow curves. Perfect when hot and sticky!

The past two seasons brief is lowrise.. Loved the old fit! I have a big but, and these will not really stay put, I have to pull up to often... but as I said, I have a big but (108cm seat 78cm waist). If your but is more average you should be better than fine whit these! Despite the 'update' of these, they are still my absolute favorite.

So light, so soft, soooo stretchy!!! No restrictions in this one! I't will do perfect climbing, hiking, biking and any other outdoor active use! If you want something stretchy, you will get a hard time finding a lighter weight softshell!

Only thing missing by my opinion, is a hood. Not sure if the guide hooded jacket is same material, or if it has fleece laminated on the inside.

Nice one, way more flattering cut than previous seasons design! It's fits just like the picture.
Looks good, feels good, not restrictive = still good for climbing!
The shelf bra is ok for climbing, I would go wit a strapless bra underneath for everyday use. (I'm a D cup)
I normally wears M in patagonia, this top fits spot on in an S, so size down. (The label also says "S (european/asian M")

I love merino clothing, and since I bought the first performance pieces, a lot of my everyday wear changed as well. This one will do well all summer, both travels, bbq's and everyday wear.
Haven't bought it yet though, since I prefer skirts 2 inch longer than this one (but i'm 5,10). This one hit bottom of my knee, and i prefer skits to hit at the wides point of shin.
Tried on both L and XL, the L fits! L is my normal size in bottoms, but I sometimes use XL to get a lower waist fit - and that way a better length, but this piece in XL slides of almost instantly, so don't size up!

I own lots of merino undies, but mostly performance ones. Thought I'd try these ones as well. Nice looking ones for everyday wear. My boyfriend likes the 'interruption' in my drawer, since it mostly content hipsters.
I usually wear an L in bottoms, also with the icebreaker hotpant, tried both L and XL in these, and went with the XL.

I own the solid color ones, and they are the most feminine tshirts in my closet. Wide V-neck that shows collarbones perfectly! I like them to much to wear them on trails, but it's my new go-to shirts. I bring them on all my trips and travels, due to the benefits of merino (no wrinkles, no smell, low packvolume, soft on sunburnt skin)
My measures are 96/80/108cm, both M and L fits well, but I went with M to show of curves, since it's not a slim fit. Doesn't mean it's like painted on!

I'm not so much into print's, but if you are, go for this one!

I've waited for a simple broad-strap tanktop made of merino for a while. This it it! (also love the retreat top, but not for same use). Nice neckline, shows lots of skin - but not too much for family bbq'es, and I think the straps are wide enough for carrying a heavy backpack! Will use it for climbing and hiking, and all the days in between :o)

Just what i waited for! Bought an M, witch is my normal size in icebreaker (and most other brands).
Only wish is as always, an inch or 2 longer in the body, but I'm 5,11 -so guess it doesn't count.

Bought the Ember, and it does something very good to us naturally blondes! The mystic color is gorges to though, guess I'll own both by the end of the summer.

I have a gear (and everyday) closet full of merino from many different brands. Therefore I was very surprised to get exited by this piece! VERY SOFT, and it seems very durable! I think this will hold shape perfectly and will take years of hard (ab)use without tearing.

Besides the merino thing, this top have a fit that works for me; high -but not to high- collar, perfectly protected zipper, nice slim fit sleeve length, and the best;
the thumbholes has moved on top of the wrist - not creating a cooling bridge directly on the veins!
The jelly color is very rich and just like the picture!

only wish is 1-2 inch longer body, but then thats always a problem for me (5,11)
