Simple piece with warmth and coziness. Definitely find myself wearing this more often than not as I am a fan of feeling warm and fuzzy inside. Love the way fleece feels on the skin and definitely enjoy keeping warm and not sweaty. Great layering piece for light activity in the cold or when it's really really cold out I love that the neck comes up high!

I typically climb in TC Pros for pretty much everything, but these were given to me and have since been loving them for sport routes. These are smaller than my TC Pros and I've had to adjust to that, but after a few sessions I've been feeling really comfortable in these. They are soft, grippy, and have adjusted to my feet really well. I have a wider foot, but I feel like they still fit great. For sure took some time getting used to downsizing, but happy with them for a high performance sport climbing shoe.

Never been wet while parading through the forest rocking this shell. Lightweight and very functional with the Dry Q Evap technology. Primarily used for hiking and biking, but if it's chilly out I'll throw in on while running as well. I like to stay dry and warm, but not feel muggy and sweaty underneath my jacket....that clammy feeling simply doesn't feel good and leaves me chilled if I take a break. It's lightweight, but also doesn't rip easily. I've got a couple and get plenty of use out of them despite living in droughted California. Love this striped jacket in the rain!

With Arcade branching out and making stretchy belts that are stylish and comfortable, I couldn't be more excited for this belt to hit the market. So comfortable and love love love the style. A+ for Arcade!

Diggin it!

Great material in this shirt. Soft and cozy yet also functional. Love the burned out stripe design to feel "not too sporty" in the mountains. Good fit, super comfortable, and as always with Mountain Hardwear there is the benefit of functionality with your shirt!

Usually when I'm going skiing, or doing anything in the mountains, I am going to sweat like crazy. I need a shell that is breathable and keeps me protected from the rain, snow, wind...etc. These pants are great for touring and every day skiing on the hill. Super water proof and fit great. Durable too as I put every pair of pants through the wringer by hiking, snowmobiling, and other outdoor activities that are generally hard on the gear. I love the soft-shell feel to these pants as well. Material is soft, but really performs well. Coupled with the Mountain Hardwear Snowtastic Jacket and that's my dream outfit! I rock a M because I wear a knee brace and like a little bit of a baggier feel for comfort while moving in the mountains. Love em!

A go to piece for rainy days or windy days when you just want more protection from the elements. Light and packs up small. Durable fabric for scrambling around on rocks and or running through the forest. Simple and performs it's job! Great jacket to have. Not to mention the breathability of the Dry Q technology. A huge plus for active people.

Rainy days on the bike, running, or hiking just got a little bit better with this jacket. It's super lightweight and is a no brainer when heading out on warmer days in the rain. Love this layer to keep me dry and comfortable outdoors. Can't get much lighter than this. I wasn't sure how much I would use this piece when I first got it, but since have been putting it through the wringer and enjoying it every time I take it out. It's also an easy piece to pack away in your bag for those days with questionable weather.

Great touring binding. I've used these for the past year and they have held up well. I've hit cliffs, jumps, and skied hard on these and have been pleasantly surprised with the durability and feel of these. While hitting jumps the heel piece has popped off a couple of times and I can't quite tell if they popped off because of landing too far forward or if they popped off and caused me to fall forward. The toe piece has never come off during a fall, however.

This is the first true lightweight touring binding that I have owned and can now say that I doubt I will go back to a heavier set up. Easy to use, quick on the changeover, and a great binding over all. Love hiking with a lighter set up!

This helmet fits incredibly well and couple with the boa system in the back you can get a perfect fit. Huge advocate of wearing a helmet all the time, but also really important to me that it fits well and feels good to wear. This has been my go to helmet choice for a couple of years now.

I don't know if I'll ever be able to got back to any other lens changing technology after using these. I primarily ski in the backcountry by touring or snowmobiling and am constantly changing lenses based on the weather while shooting. This system is so fast and so easy it's not even a question to change or not to change lenses. When hiking and hitting jumps and being in different snowy or rainy environments it's essential to be able to change lenses efficiently and fast. They fit perfectly and nicely with the Anon helmets as well. So fired up on this goggle! Love the graphics too! Oh and I can't forget that I kind of like to show them off. People always trip when you change your lens quick and easy. Love them!

Love this jacket because of the Dry Q Elite technology. While hiking it's so important to me to be able to manage my body temperature and this technology is amazing. It's water proof and breathable. While hiking/touring you can wear this while being protected from the elements and not feeling like you are in a sauna or sweat room.

I layer this with the ghost whisper down and a merino wool base layer pretty much all the time and can manage my temperature through out the day.

Great piece, light weight, and fits well.

I've been on the hunt for a touring boot that is also a great boot for the decent as that is what I am more focused on. While I stayed clear of touring boots for a while, you just can't beat that walk mode and lighter weight. After doing extensive research I finally caved and went for these. I've been really impressed with the boots performance. Like I said before, I'm all about the down, but it's great to have a boot that performs really well on the way up too. The walk mode is great and the stiffness of this boot makes for a fun run down. I've been really stoked on these and have spent many days in them. I'd almost go as far as to say that these boots are the best if your looking for a great touring boot that skis amazingly as well, but I haven't tried them all. With that said, I am really happy with this choice! Hard to find a women's boot that is stiff enough, but these are doing the trick.

Comfort meets function with this particular boot. I've put this thing through the wringer skiing non-stop for two back to back seasons and have been really surprised how well they have held up and performed. The intuition liner is the best thing that happened to ski boots. Lightweight in comparison to most liners and warm. Best of both worlds. This boot is great and a go to. Perfect flex and great performance.
