Lightweight - Active - Functional
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 7"
Weight: 125 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

It has been an early spring in the Tetons but that doesn't mean that we haven't had our grey days. The crux allows be to confidently leave the trailhead on an overcast day knowing that I will have protection from the rain and knowing that I haven't waisted space and/or weight with the crux packed.

As lightweight as you could get for a rain shell, with the chest zips doubling as ventilation to keep zipper weight down. A great fit and design by Marmot.

(There is also a slight stretch to the fabric which I like, and it seems to breath better than most water protectant shells).

Wear them over all of my other bottoms.
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 7"
Weight: 125 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I recently went on a 2 week surf trip and wore these 10 out of 14 days. They fit well, stay put (for the most part) and hugged my skier booty just in the right way.

A con is that after a few days of constant wear and getting tossed in some serious surf the double layered seamless-ness got a little of out sack and stretched out (as you can kind of see in the photo).

I would buy these over and over again though.

I ordered a medium but may try a small in the future.

Style and comfort.

Size Purchased: Small

I don't really like wearing a rashgaurd, I would rather be able to paddle without the drag and not be constantly tugging to keep it down to protect my ribs and hips, but the Mystic Tribe stayed in place, is the perfect cut for muscular shoulders and has great stylish detail on the back.

Perfect for protecting my mid-section from my board and the rays while feeling like you were just in your swim suit.

I haven't had a chance to get my hands on the Klean Kanteen Insulated Food Canister, but the bottle does the trick just as well! I have been feeling a little under the weather and nothing works better than throwing some home-made chicken noodle soup into my Insulated Bottle and bringing it to the mountain with me for a mid-day ski snack to warm me up. Keeps contents warm all day (my trick? -- before you fill it with your warm soup/beverage fill it with hot water for a few minutes to warm up the bottle initially).

The only down side is that when I am feeling a little under the weather my hand tend to be weak and I have a hard time getting the cap off.

Practice makes perfect.

I picked up this beacon this year and have done a few practice days with it and have found it to be super user friendly, ESPECIALLY during multiple burials.

Being a small individual it is also great that it is a smaller beacon and isn't too bulky. The one thing that keeps me from giving it 5 stars? The harness is HUGE. I'm a small female (this demographic is growing!) and I could wrap the waist strap around me twice. Maybe it's time to start having harness sizes?

Let's be honest, I am a ski bum. I ski from 8am-3pm everyday throw some dry shampoo in my hair and show up to wait tables half way out of my snow pants.

The Dansko Clog is a MUST for anyone who works in the service industry. When your feet have been crammed in your ski boots all day they can finally relax with an amazing amount of arch support and a roomie toe-box (no more 92mm crap here).

Yes they are pricey, but you won't regret it.

I am a 7.5 and wear a 38!

I have to admit-- I'm not very tech savvy with these devices but the Go Pro Hero 4 SILVER is very user friendly.

What makes it so different? The touch screen of course! -- I always found myself confused, "Is it on?" ... now I don't need to know which button is used to change modes or settings because I can simply use the touch screen just as you would on your smart phone!

(sign)-- Finally, something I can figure out!

CUTE!

Options! I love the simple options in life like whether to wear my Marmot Watch Beanie folded over or floppy.

This beanie is simple yet cute and perfect for under your helmet or even out on a Saturday.

It's the simple things in life.

It's ON in Jackson Hole! It has been a brutal 0 degrees for several days and I can't leave the house without my Marmot Val D'sere Down. It's longer than the Mountain Down and the Sling Shot so your tushie stays toasty! It has great chevron-like seams that add a bit of style and the ORANGE pops beautifully against a white blanket of snow!

Stay warm this winter around town, on the slopes or out for a snowy stroll. (I wear this one one cold resort days and LOVE it).

SIZEING: I'm 5-7, 125lb's (small build, broad shoulders, skier booty) I bought a MEDIUM
