Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am still pretty new to climbing I picked it up in Squamish one year when we had a terrible winter (aka no snow). Anyways I started top roping and picked up this harness when I felt like I needed to stop borrowing my buddies gear. This is awesome! Its sturdy and durable and easy to use. I use is outdoors and in gyms. Looking to start sport climbing soon and I think this guy will hold up!

I wear a women's 5 wide!!! So hard to get shoes so I usually go barefoot but you kinda need to wear shoes when you're a river guide and these fit the bill. The toe strap does cinch down over time but it is not a deal breaker. These are worth the $$ I am looking to get these babies re strapped after a few seasons of hard wear and tear and guess what it's only going to run me $35?? Awesome right.

Only con they seem a bit largish and my pinky toe kinda gets hidden underneath the strap. I might remediate this by getting the heel strap shortened. Otherwise great

I have 2 of these now in a 4 & 6. Both sizes fit great the 4 being a bit shorter and more tailored. The 6 is not oversized not too fitted and still looks great with a bit more room for the broad shoulders. The fabric is thick and durable the patterns are super cute. Great for shoulder season or when it's not quite cold enough for a fleece.

These are awesome I used to have the original baggie's but I found them a bit too baggy (I am short/petite). These are amazing they aren't too tight and not sloppy. Perfect for river guiding. I wore the mayan yellow pair every day all summer on the river in New Zealand (they are not so yellow now!). I have replaced that pair with 2 new pairs this summer. Super durable unless you are going to be wearing them all day everyday in the elements!!!! Ordered a size S have strong legs/narrow hips and have plenty of room to move about.

PS The "howling turquoise" color is super cute!!!!

Super flattering smart black jeans! They have a TON of stretch which is perfect for biking around town, to the bars, etc... The reflective tape is SUPER BRIGHT! I love it I am also very short and have to roll these bad boys up anyways. The higher rise is perfect for cycling I no longer am pulling up my pants or showing everyone my crack.

Sizing: I ordered my usual size and then sized down. They stretch out a lot (waist was falling down) I have the 25's and they fit snug but still have room to move around.

Icebreaker for the win. Cute colors and a fit thats technical but still cute enough for date night. I bought these in an XS and S. I am between sizes. I found the small to be a bit too baggy and would bunch up under clothing but the XS fits snug the waistband only digs in a bit. Overall love having cute technical undies (with minimal stank after 5 days on the river!)

Bought these to wear under my river shorts because I am a river guide and was sure my clients would not appreciate me going commando ha! They held up the whole summer and I still use them now. The waistband rolls a bit but no big deal.

Big bonus: Very little stink after 5 day river trips!!!

I bought this to use guiding river trips in New Zealand. Very hand to have proper backpack straps to carry it uphill to the campsite everyday (and have free hands to help carry clients gear!!! WIN!!) It held up through daily river abuse through the whole season. A few spots starting to wear but no leaks! I purchased the yellow 70L and it had plenty of room for my tent, sleeping bag, clothes and extra clothes etc. Can hold 2 peoples gear if you pack only 2 sets of clothes.

Overall it really made a difference this past summer!

I love this fleece. The pattern (wild desert red) is amazing it is loud, obnoxious, and awesome. I wear this everyday. It is the best fleece to throw on after a long day at work. The fleece is designed to have a "baggy" fit which it does, but I don't find it overwhelmingly baggy. For reference I typically wear a S in Patagonia, 5'2" 120.
