Reserve your heavy hiking boots for the multi-day heavy backpacking trips. These are your new mountain shoes. No seriously. Light, breathable, and sticky. I was so excited to pull these out of the box and hike 7 miles right off the bat. 2700 feet elevation gain and super rocky terrain. Not only did these shoes hold up, there was no break-in, no rubbing, no blisters. Nothing. Just solid and comfortable. They do run a bit small. I wear a 7.5 and ordered these in 39.5 (US 8)

Best hiking/ running shoe I've ever owned. 5 Stars!

PS: I compared these to salmon crosstrek in the store, these were definitely more comfortable and should hold up better than the crosstrek.

I rarely purchase chocolate flavored protein powder because it just doesn't taste that great. I stand corrected. This stuff is fantastic! High quality and mixes well.

I'm between sizes, sometimes a 4, sometimes a 6. I tried these on in a store in size 4, ordered them in size 6, but the waist fit exactly the same in both sizes. Sadly I returned them as they were too small. But the fabric was comfortable, length was perfect and they fit really well through the bottom of the leg. If you'll on the less curvy side, these are the ones for you.

I was excited when I pulled these out of the box and felt the material. For hiking, they fit perfectly relaxed through the hip and then. . . . left much to be desired. They flared horribly at the leg. Like I had fins on the outside of my thigh. I would have gotten them altered but there is a pocket on the right side with a zipper that goes all the way down; a perfect size for a cell phone if the flair works for you.

I loved these leggings. The fabric is thick and structured, but very comfortable. They are high rise and they do run small so sadly I had to return them. I personally think all leggings should have pockets like these.

I'm not sure why most buy boy shorts, but I wear them with summer dresses. These are nice and cool, absorb moisture and stay put. Which is exactly what I was looking for. One thing to note, the waistband will roll if it's not snug.

I originally ordered an XL by mistake, and had to exchange. The Large was a perfect fit for my man; but it does run a bit large. Being a puffy, it packs easily for hiking but fluffs right back up. If you've never owned a vest, they are worth the splurge to regulate body temperature without over-heating.

We recently took this stove hiking in Yosemite. Waking up in the morning I was expecting to wait for my coffee. (and I'm one of those coffee before anything else type of person) Wait no more! This baby boils water in 2 minutes flat. It also scrambled eggs in about 30 seconds.

Effective, light, and easy to pack up. This is what you've been looking for.

I used to think a yoga mat was just a yoga mat. It's not. Rubber is where it's at. Every mat I've ever owned has been slippery and fallen apart. So while this mat might be more expensive up front, it lasts SOOOO much longer.

This mat has been sticky from the get go, making it easier to hold poses and adjust for proper posture. BUT, if your into hot yoga, or just sweat alot, buy a yoga towel mat to go with it.

I think the biggest complaint with this mat is the strong rubber smell for the first month or so. It didn't bother me because it reminded me that I bought a quality mat that I trust to get the job right. THANK YOU MANDUKA!

In my mind, the point of wearing leggings is to be able to do every activity, comfortably without having to worry about changing. I've worn these for yoga, hiking, lounging, to work, even crossfit. They nailed it. No seriously. The material is soft, but not lacking and while they look nice, they aren't shiny and slick like the majority of leggings. They are just the right amount of thickness and stretch. And the tropical print is perfect. I'm SOLD!

I bought these in black and am so tempted to buy the green as well. You know that perfect variation between soft cotton and stretch? These are it. I don't like that slippery, plastic bag feeling so many tights have. These are light, soft and breathable. Top that off with a fun but understated pattern. Sold!

I wanted to love this, but its just ok. The bottom is perfect, the top part is baggy, in kind of a square box kind of way. It is comfortable though and great for working out. I bought this in grey and it has a purple hue.

This thing is in-genius. I'm not big on purses so this was the perfect solution for yoga. Keeps my mat rolled up and my phone, keys, headphones and wallet safe and sound.

I never thought I "needed" a mat holder. I admit that I was wrong.

Like most things prAna, this sweater looked boxy on me. The asymmetrical hem is a cool idea but it was too short at the apex, revealed half of my hipbone.

This sweater would be adorable on someone who is slim and flat chested. If you want a baggy look like the model, I would suggest sizing up.

Nike sizes tend to vary greatly. This shirt runs small and is very see thru. I bought it as a cover up for the gym but its too snug and too sheer to be a cover up. This could be appropriate for working out, but not as a cover-up.

If your looking for a lightweight cross-training shoe. This could fit the bill. It doesn't have enough support to fun a 5k but it a great lifting shoe (which is what I bought it for.) A wide base for stability but enough toe lift to avoid tripping. It has a great non-slip sole and is super comfy. I wore them all day right out of the box with no problems.

The hunt for the perfect workout top has ended. While this one runs a little large, I prefer that in workout top. It cinches perfectly up top to define my curves without strangling them and then it casually flares out to make room for my hips. Very flattering. It also comes up high enough to keep the ladies covered when bending over.

I will be buying more. Thanks UAWomen!!
