Utahan born and breed...small stint on the East Coast (Beantown...Go Red Sox!!) for college allowed me to see some new parts of the world. After college I moved to Jackson Hole for a couple years of ski bumming before returning to Utah and settling down with a family.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large

Really like these pants. The material seems tough and strong, ready to take on just about any thing I put them too. Lots of reinforced material in the foot cuffs.

The vents are on the outside of the thigh and run the length of my thigh, Mesh under the zipper. I would've like to have some crotch vents as well and don't care much for the mesh, I get hot easier and would like some extra airflow from time to time. I did buy these for the colder ski days, as i have a pair of non-insulated pants for warmer days, so the issues are pretty negligible.

Only 1 back pocket and 1 cargo pocket, would've prefered 2 of each, but there are enough as is, I just like lots of pockets.

Mine were larger than I expected. I am 6.2, 190 lbs. Waist 34. Went with a large, which is what the size chart said and the waist was very big. Inside the waistband, however, are adjustable velcro straps to tighten up the waist band. Along with a cool belt I am now good to go!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I hope I didn't just age myself there too much....

I bought these sweet kicks for my 9 year old daughter. She loves them! Wears them everywhere...If I could just get her to keep them tied. :0

These are very cool and sporty shoes. The laces are super long, but I suggest just double knotting them. We went a little big so they would last a bit longer (kids grow so dang fast). Size 5 was spot on.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I really like the feel and fit of this shirt. Soft and a little stretchy, the slim fit is great. I ordered size large and the fit is spot on. (I am almost always a large).

My wife was unsure of the stripes at first(too much like prison attire), but after I put it on she said it looked great. Two thumbs up!

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I bought this for my wife on our 5th anniversary. She wanted one so bad after she saw mine first...;). Great jacket. We wear them everywhere. Skiing, out to dinner etc...its super versatile. Warm yet stylish. High recommend this jacket. Sizing guide was spot on if you take a look. She is 5'8" 125 lbs. Went with a small and it fits perfectly.
