Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I lost my favorite pair of Smith PivlockV90 (I am still super sad), I ordered the V2s as a replacement. I have a small face and the V2s are just enough bigger/wider/etc than the V90s that it doesn't look quite as awesome. The poppy color was more of a red red than an orange/pink/red than I was expecting. Smith lenses are amazing, but I think I am going to send them back and get another pair of V90s.

Fit: True to size

I am 5'2" 115lbs and the size small fit perfect. It is low rise, but there is adequate coverage in the back. (I would wear them on a family trip). I ordered the pink, thinking they would be well pink. They are actually a hot electric pink (think 80's) color. They were a little bit too much for me, but will probably order them in another color.

I love my Cap4 top and was looking for a warmer base layer to use on resort days. First the "open grid knit" essentially means see through. It is a waffle style with a very thin fabric between the waffles, when stretched tight you can see right through to your underwear. I ordered the extra small (5'2" 115lbs). It was a struggle to get the waist over my thighs and butt, but once it made it over, it fit my waist perfectly. Just wish it had a little bit more stretch, but wouldn't pick a different size.

I am 5'2", 115lbs.. usually wear a size 25-26 jean and ordered a size small. These pants are a slimmer fit. I have used them in the resort and in backcountry. I like the weight, color, "look" and vents on the pants. The pockets are difficult to use. I can't fit anything bigger than my credit/card ID in the front pockets. Definite no on the iPhone. It is not easily accessible. I tried getting a beacon to fit in the cargo pocket. It was able to squeeze in, but not easy. For the price I will keep them for a resort/sledding pant.

I bought this jacket as a shell for the resort and to ski tour in. I have only used it a couple of times. I am 5'2" 115lbs and initially bought a small and an xs. I kept the small, since I wanted room to layer. It was borderline on what size to keep (I almost always an XS). The first time I used the jacket there was very wet snow. Everything was soaked, but I stayed nice and dry. I like all of the pocket choices. There is a little extra room in the neck to hood space, which I am not used to having but I think will be fine. The sleeves are a little long, but as a more petite person I am pretty used to that. The only major con is the wrist gaiters/thumb holes. I can't get the jacket on when I have my liner gloves on. I take my shell on and off a lot in the backcountry, so it is kind of annoying. I think I will end up cutting them out.

I have used these pants twice in resort and once touring. I am 5'2" 115lbs with athletic legs and a smaller waist, I got the smalls and with a base layer they are a little long but otherwise fit perfectly. Comfortable to ski and hike in. My dream pant has two cargo pockets for storing snacks/hat/gloves/beacon, but the one cargo pocket works great. It is slightly off to the side, but works. I don't tend to overheat much so the vents with very fine mesh lining work great. I like the graphite/navy look. It is nice to have not have a black pant or one that is super bright. I have been picky and looking for new snow pants for the past 3 years and excited to finally find a pair that fit well and are functional.

After getting soaked with my old tent on a trip to Rossland, I decided it was time for a new tent. After researching I ended up with the Marmot Earlight. The features I wanted (2 vestibules), plus the included footprint for the price seemed to be the best deal. I took it with me to a MT bike trip in Moab. Set it up in a lovely windstorm. The poles did bend a little in the wind, but was still able to set it up by myself (pro). (Con) it blew a nice layer of sand on the bottom of the tent. It then rained all night, I stayed nice and dry... which after the prior trip was sooo nice. Overall I am happy with this tent.
