This is a great hoody overall and am not sure why Patagonia discontinued it. The material is very comfortable and soft against the skin. I find it fits pretty true to size. Maybe a little bit big if anything but does have a more contoured fit to it. I would have purchased another color if it was still available but bummed it isn't.

I have the original Jetboil model when it first came out and used this part to replace my old coffee press that kicked the bucket from wear and tear. It fits is perfectly so it's good to use with the old school Jetboil model and also the new model as well.

A medium runs true to size and is a perfect fit. She's 5'8" and found the length of the skirt just right. This piece is super cute, setting just below the belly button in the front, but giving full coverage in the backside. Does not ride up or creep and is comfortable to be active in. She Totally recommends!!

This top runs pretty large according to my friend. Ordered a Medium in Cream. She was expecting this shirt to fit big, but it was TOO big. It fit so loose that she wound up just wearing a tank top underneath and wearing this shirt to sleep in. It is too bad that it runs SO large, because it is very cute!

This tire has been steller for hard packed singletrack, muddy conditions and slickrock as well. I've never had anything penetrate the tire and feel very confident when bombing anything. It's not the lightest tire out there but it sure does add much needed confidence for long rides and jagged trails.

I've skied tons of fatty big mtn skis and nothing else compares to the Megawatt. It crushes powder, holds a reasonable edge on hardpack and is quick in tight glades. You name it, it does it. For not having any metal in the topsheet, these dampen amazingly. I can't say enough good things about these skis so don't think twice. Buy Them.

This pack is ideal for resort laps, or longer excursions outside the gates. It's lightweight, but still has enough room for all the essentials, like backcountry safety equipment, snacks and an extra layer or two. The back panel entry is especially nice when you're hiking with your skis and want to easily grab gear from your pack without having to re-rig.

The importance of having good skins on your skis can't be underestimated. Regardless of how far you're going, no one wants to exert extra energy trying to push forward on a jankey skin that just won't go. The nylon material of the Ascension Climbing Skins works is light for packability, yet durable and smooth on a variety of conditions -- from steep slopes, to windy ridges, to low angle terrain. These also remain their stick season after season, which is a huge plus.

The Dynastar Cham is a great Montana ski. I mainly rode these up at Big Sky Resort, which is known for its variable conditions. Whether skiing powder, groomers, or mixed conditions, these skis deliver. You many want a fatter ski for the big dumps, but these are a great all mountain ski that aggressive skiers can charge hard on, yet still turn easily if you want to do some tree skiing or moguls.

I'm now using my second pair of this boot. This is a great work/trail boot that isn't too heavy or hot on the foot. This boot gives my ankles the support they need to keep me upright. The size 11.5 fits my 11.5 foot well. The traction is good on most surfaces. Even with daily wear and abuse the boot holds up well. Until I find something more durable or comfortable, I will likely work through a pair of these per year. I also continue to wear the first pair, very high mileage.

This is a good choice for international travel. The capacity is more than enough to take everything you need for a month or two on the road. The zippers are durable and the fabric is very durable. The back-pack option is good if your in a busy transit situation with many people grabbing for your bag. The wheels roll smooth and the handles can take aggressive bus drivers tossing onto roof.

I picked these up for a friend and KUHL pants, in general, tend to run a bit large, and these are no exception. Even when you find the correct size, you can expect a looser fitting pant, witch also has a bit of stretch to it. She found these pants very comfortable for anything used them for. The fabric has a light stretchiness to it that allows you to fully bend and move with no bunching or binding. I wore them in the sun on a 112 degree day and I was happy with the wicking and drying nature of this fabric too. These pants seem very tough and durable, and expects to have them for a long time.

I picked this up as a gift for a friend and found the Medium to be true to size, if a little loose in the waist. With the drawstring though, that is not a problem. This material is very comfortable and stretchy and, with the addition of the cute flare at the bottom, they allow you to be very flexible. She has worn them while doing a number of different activities and in very hot and humid environments, and always been happy with their performance under pressure.
