Marla Bailey's Bio

From New Jersey originally..exit 82. he he I love the beach, being on and near the water, be it rivers, lakes,oceans..love em' all! !And most importantly the Mountains! Lived some in the Catskill Mtns. in Upstate NY..just teasing me for the "real mountains" :) About 21 winters ago..and 22 years altogether....started working my way across the country..literally..took me 6 1/2 yrs to go from the Atlantic to the Pacific..all in my '74 VW Westafalia! Moved to Utah..for the Snow! duh!! he he Lived in many great towns, had some really awesome jobs, hung with some incredible people and always looking forward to the next adventure...as well as to all seasons.. although...always praying for sick ski season! I love to be outside...whether I'm really getting after it or just out with the dogs...fresh air and adventure is what I crave! !!! When I'm not outside playing...I'm most likely working or sleeping. Yoga, SUPing,dancing , ice skating, live music , good friends , good food, and lots of laughter are just a few of my other favorite things.







Get Outside! :) Be Green!

Great simple , cotton canvas wallet. if you like ones that can be tossed in a pocket or purse or even a pant pocket ..skirt pocket etc..this wallet is a nice option. I got the surf, skate, snow "color" and I love it..love the graphics. Just the right amount of card slots..change pouch ..and Nixon always puts out a high quailyt product. Happy :) if only it came with money in it hehe it'd be the perfect wallet. :))

I have a few of these and I will be getting more :). So easy to use and abuse these :). Fun colors, UV protection a bonus and versatile uses. Great for neck only, or up on the face..even the head..so fun really. Just the right amount of coverage when and how you want it. I will be getting more colors myself. A Must-Have item . IN this pic, just hanging around the neck..if and when needed, I pull it up over my face..or when warming, push onto my head. Even around town, these make great simple accessories , with a purpose..does the trick for that added draft down the neck/chest. Done leave home without one ! :)

Fit: True to size

Bought for a 19 yr. old and seems perfect. Style and fit were right up her alley. Ordered a M because she said "she wanted some room" and it fits great. If she were to order for exactly her size, a S would have been ok, but for a little more room, M is perfect. It does already run true to slightly larger in size. Comfy she said. Warm and soft. Cool style..looks flannel like , but totally a legit jacket.

IN love with this jacket. The fit for one! Wear this alone on pretty cold days and be fine :). On colder more wet days..layer under a shell for the perfect combo. The slimness of the jacket mixed with the simply tight baffled synthetic insulation , makes for an awesome versatile jacket. Warm, breathable and a flattering fit. TNF coming through again on fit for me. I went with an xs..fits nice over a couple shirt layers. 5'2" 105 lbs. I can go xs or s sometimes..xs works well in this for me as I did want a more snug fit..not roomy. The fit is perfect..not too snug at all :).

Seriously. I have a size small in this glove..and they're perfect. Dexterity is awesome, warmth is amazing and the windstopper material does the job. I have worn these skiing at Snowbird in the 20's and 30's and ski touring in temps at about the same..and these gloves truly are awesome. So comfy and warm. The etip works for keeping gloves on a taking a photo or answering a call quick :).

These pants have both going on! I'm super stoked on these! XS/Short! 5'2" 105 lbs...and yes these fit so nice. Waist has these tabs to pull for even better fit..length is perfect. I feel fancy in the white :) Lovin' them! The material is awesome, it's like old school softshell..waterproof, and quite warm..well so far I have worn them in 35 degree weather.. :) I'm truly digging the fit. Yay TNF!

Well for me at least..Black is Back. It has been a very long time since I have owned a pair of black ski pants....soo I was in the market..and I have to say..I am super stoked on these pants. I totally anticipated these being too big..like most pants on me. I ordered the obvious for me, xs/short. I'm 5'2" 105 lbs. so naturally I go xs for the most part..pants that have length options are even better :). These fit pretty much perfect. Waist has the slight low rise with tabs to adjust, love em'! , the length is perfect, burly material. Overall, these are super sweet..again for me, fit fit fit woohoo :) , now I want more colors :))

Super lucky getting a pair of these gifted :) . I have smaller hands, being a female and all hehe and had first mentioned a small women's for these , but since these are a hot commodity , no more women's were available..small mens are only a little big on me..so these run small. The leather helps them have a more fitted fit and will break in and form more around my hand :).I am loving these so far..warm and comfy. The black color is sweet, no issues with any color rubbing off. More great gear from Armada. Thanks again Ryan! (Armada Sales Rep)

Fit: Runs small

Second pair for me :) ! Last seasons and this seasons, that is how much I love these boots. My foot favors Keen footwear, being a bit more wide in the toe box and high arch. This boot does run a half size small . With boots too the kind of socks being worn for the most part. I can go between 5.5 and 6.0 depending on fit in shoes/boots, in these I do a 6.0 and they're perfect. Warm, comfy, waterproof..best ever :) with style too . These are a little higher than last years model, which is alright with me. Love Keen :)

I actually love these for the cozy warmth. Super soft and comfy. I've worn these ski touring, but I do typically bring along another pair of gloves, waterproof. Wind blocking is good on these. Overall fit seems true. I like a little room so I went with a size M which fits me well. No construction flaws on the pair I own, so all stitching and welded patches are intact.
Love em' :)

First, I needed this hat because it went with my Arc'teryx ski clothes, perfectly :). It has proven itself for function as well as fashion :) . Super warm, comfy and waaay cute. Love the colors. Fits like any one size fits all hat...good for anyones head :)

hahaa for real! I love these tires. From alpine to desert riding..xc rulers. The weight doesn't bother me at all..since they don't seem super heavy to me, plus being tubeless , they're bomber. The grip of the knobs, the smoothness of braking...the ease of the roll. These tires help with the flow of the singletrack..wet or dry..they rally.

Mad about Mad Rock Crash Pads!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Easy to haul, backpack straps help with this..nice thick, stiffer pad. Dual purposes as you can see from my photo :) heehe classic dog bed too . a great pad to have at any area, whether just using one or adding more to the pile..these pads are an essential piece of bouldering gear..price wise, you cannot lose and quality is typical of Mad Rock..solid.

Fit: True to size

I am already a huge Arc'teryx fan. Construction of the garments and fit for me I just love. So no surprise I love this jacket too! I have worn this at Snowbird on super windy, stormy days..I throw a synthetic layer underneath and good to go. I have ski toured all around the Wasatch in this thing..with just a thin layer underneath and on some days..even the synthetic layer is needed. That being said, I did go with a small instead of xs just so I could layer if I wanted. I usually am going with xs-small as I am 5'2" 105 lbs. I have even used this as a rain jacket in the spring and summer since it is a lighter in weight..yet still super waterproof, durable and breathable. Fast and Light, I do feel that way in this jacket :) heehe

I love these! Size is true. I wear a 5-6 shoe , so I am always a small sock. Soft feel. I ride for hours in these..and they still end up feeling soft when I am removing them. I love a micro sock. Barely able to see you have them on, the material part that comes up over the heal and onto the back of the Achilles..is perfect. Getting more for sure :)
