This top is adorable! I'm pretty petite and flat chested and this top is very flattering. The back is very open and exposed while still being supportive enough to allow for any adventure. It's a bit pricey but seems like good quality.

I love these shirts. The organic cotton is so soft and gives the t-shirt a unique texture. The graphics are super cute and give the t-shirt a vintage feel. The torso may be a little short for some people but I think it fits great.

This dress is perfect to throw on after a bike ride, while camping, at the beach or even for a night out. It's really flattering, the back is adorable and it's really high quality. I would love if they made it in other colors and it could be a tad bit shorter for us petite ladies but overall I love it, it's simple and looks great!

Maybe it's just me but I found these bottoms to be comically small. I'm all for a cheeky bottom but this just didn't fit me well. It appears well made and I plan to return them and order a bigger size. So I guess moral of the story, if you have a booty, size up.

This hat is so comfortable and really high quality. Often, these hats are way too tall for my head, making it so I have to pull it over my ears to make it looks normal, not this case with this hat. It fits well and I get a TON of compliments on it. The perfect way to stay cool while adventuring!

These gloves did not work for me. They are super tight in the wrists so getting them on and off was a chore. Also, while they are super breathable, they provide zero padding so for longer rides, my hands became noticeably more fatigued than normal. I ended up returning them.

These pants are my go to whenever they're clean. They fit great and work for after yoga, running to the grocery store, camping, loungin around, you name it. They are really well made and my only feedback would be that the pockets are kind of shallow but, not a big issue. I'm petite, so finding a jogger pant that wasn't ill fitting was quite the challenge and these fit the bill! A great purchase!

I've owned many a pair of birkenstocks in my day but I typically went with the gizeh style as I always thought they were the cutest. For a recent trip to Italy and wanted a more secure yet still hip/stylish pair. These were perfect! They are pretty euro looking which I loved but they might be a bit too nerdy/hipster looking for some people. The straps are thicker than I thought they would be a give off a bit of a Teva vibe, which I love. And I don't have to mention how amazingly comfortable they are because well, they're birkenstocks. Give them a chance! I'm glad I did. I'm pretty typically a US size 6 and the 36 fit perfectly.

This is hands down my favorite shirt. I first bought one for mountain biking but ended up wearing for everything. It's the perfect casual layer for everyday and is really well made. I ended up buying a second one because I found I gravitated toward this shirt more often than not. I have both a small and an xs. The small has a more relaxed casual fit and is pretty baggy on me (although still looks cute and hip). The xs is more fitted and still looks great. The fact that this shirt can be worn both every day and while hiking, biking, yogaing makes it simply the best!

I'm sold on onzie, it's my favorite yoga clothing brand. I practice hot yoga about 4 times per week and I love these onzie bras. They're cute and a little different look from the traditional halter looking sports bra. I can see how it wouldn't be enough support for a larger chested woman but for a petite, small chested woman like me, they're perfecto!

This shirt is just as cute as it looks! Just flashy enough without being overkill. It's long enough that it doesn't ride up in the back . I'm rather petite and find these jersey's typically drown me but this one is more fitted and is flattering. The only improvement would be the neckline, it's a little uncomfortably high. Not a deal breaker by any means, just a little uncomfortable. Overall, a great buy!

I practice hot yoga about 4 times per week and I'm always on the look out for yoga clothes that can hold up to that much sweat and wear. This was my first Alo purchase and this bra has been great. It's snug, does not move during practice, and is made from very high quality materials so has stood up to being washed multiple times per week. The back detailing is delicate and pretty without compromising function. It does fit snug but that works for me as I'm petite and small chested; I ordered the xs and think the s would be a bit too big for me. I give it two thumbs way up!

When I'm really exerting myself, eating a blob of congealed sawdust protein or super sweet goo is really unappealing. Pro Bars on the other hand are delicious whole food meals that are tasty and easy to eat.

Superfood Slam, Whole Berry Blast, and Art's Original Blend are by far my favorite flavors out of the current offerings, but I'm so bummed that they discontinued older and amazing flavors like Nutty Banana Boom, Sesame Gogi Berry, Cherry Pretzl, Coconut Pistachio, and Lemon Raspberry. My mouth is watering just thinking about them, they were that good.

Buy up the flavors you like now because it seems Pro Bar is moving away from the tasty and unique flavors that differentiated them and are now chasing boring mass market flavors and packaging to try and compete with competitors on their terms... lame! They're still my favorite bars though.

Good consistency and nice fresh natural citrus scent, I'm hooked. So far it has held up well to longer rides in warm dry desert riding, hoping it will last on the real scorchers. I can't compare it to many other brands but the consistency is more like a thick body lotion than a paste.

This shirt hit the mark for me -- slightly heavier than a pure techy/shiny jersey, keeps you dry but is still really comfortable, doesn't have overdone styling but the colors are really vibrant. I can wear this riding and keep it on to grab a bite afterwards without looking like I'm in the middle of a ride.

This is such a great pack that I got another for my wife. Balanced is the best word I can think of for these packs, just the right amount of everything and not over or under done in any area. Sharp and clean design, fun colors, and a lot of really well thought out storage options and features.

The main compartment can zip wide open making access and getting at the bladder quick and painless. If you don't already have a bladder the included one is fine, although I prefer the Camelbak Antiodote that I already had since it tends to lay a bit flatter and wider (http://www.backcountry.com/camelbak-antiodote-reservoir). On the back of the pack there are three separate zippered compartments. The top has a micro fleece lining so your shades dont get scratched, and is big enough to fit a couple bars. The larger middle compartment has enough dividers to make a home for tools and equipment you might take on ride, super useful. The last one has stretch webbing to strap your helmet onto the bag, probably not something I'll use very often but its a nice feature.

Overall it's comfortable to wear, has enough storage to make it through longer rides and hikes, and is designed in such a way that it never feels over stuffed or leaves things sloshing around. Great buy.

This is a really great table for how light and easy it is to set up and pack away. The slats on the table top are sturdy and stay in place and roll up to be reasonably compact. One tradeoff is that since it's so lightweight it probably can't hold the heaviest camp items, or at least I don't want to find out what the failure point is. While it's totally fine for camp stoves, kitchen gear, and random camp objects I probably won't trying throwing our 7 gallon water jug on it.

I ordered these with the intent of them being an everyday, around town sneaker. The fit was true to size but they were a bit too loud for my taste. They are super cute but they are quite the bold statement so, if that's your style these are 100% for you but they were a bit overwhelming for me.

I ordered these as an everyday, around town sneaker. I love them, they're light and were comfortable from day one. They also have a classic retro look that isn't too over the top but just enough to not be a boring sneaker. I'm a size 6 in most shoes and the size 6 fits perfectly. A touch roomy but I wouldn't want them any smaller.
