This is one of the warmest, most comfortable, & cute beanies I've owned. The inside of the beanie is fleece lined around the ears (no itching!!) & adds quite a bit of warmth. My only complaint is that after washing, some of the weave started to pull out. (Of course, I threw it in my washing machine, which is probably not appropriate). I can also say that my dog loved it, too, & now I have to buy a new one for next season.

The Outdoor Research PL Base Gloves are well made, extremely light, and fitting. They are perfect as liners or spring resort or backcountry days. Since they are so thin, you don't lose any agility (they're almost as good as your bare hands). The inside has a surprisingly soft material for wicking. For the price, you can't get much better.

I have never been disappointed with Outdoor Research in the past and I just purchased another great product. Despite the size, I was impressed with the amount of control I still have with the Radia Gloves. The tops of the gloves are more insulated than the palms, allowing more dexterity. These definitely aren't cheap, but you get what you pay for. The construction is impeccable and the quality fleece in the liner makes them very warm. I also like how snug they fit around the wrists when tightened.

I love the fact that this beanie is partially made of bamboo (it's much more sustainable than other fibers on the market). The fabric might feel a bit rough, but the hat is lined with a thick, warm fleece except for the very top. It brings warmth to your ears & makes it breathable. The fit is very snug & comfortable.

I've been looking for 2 years for a longer down jacket that won't make me look like a marshmallow, has practical features, and is easy to move in. This one is perfect! This jacket gives you at least a bit of a waist, has a great hood that you can pull around your face on cold days, pockets in all the right places, and cute lining in the sleeves. (I just wish they had used this for all of the lining!) It also comes with a double zipper so you can give yourself more room for walking. I think my favorite feature is that it's made 100% out of recycled material. I ordered a small based on the sizing chart, even though I normally wear a medium. It's a perfect fit.

This top is perfect for cold days out in the snow. It wicks, it doesn't smell over time, and feels comfortable against the skin (even though it's wool). You can also get away with wearing this shirt with a pair of jeans if you feel like going casual. Best of all, I love knowing that what I'm wearing is 100% natural (no chemicals!) This top fits true to size.

These are so much better than my old mary janes that I finally retired! They have excellent support, but still feel like slippers. I have a higher arch, so sometimes the mid-top of my foot rubs against the strap, but everything else fits perfectly. These are a great alternative for someone who can't dress down at the office, but can't stand heels.

Since the other reviews are great, maybe I just got a lemon. The watch was great for the first few months, but the quality is poor. The sections where the 2 different color pieces meet are starting to rip apart (especially at the tip of the band). The rubber material around the edge of the watch face is also starting to stretch. I feel like the battery should last longer than 6 months, but the low battery warning just popped up. The material can be a bit annoying as well - it sometimes pinches the skin (or tugs at your arm hair) since it's rubbery.

I purchased this for yoga because I was sick of my old t-shirts falling over my head during Downward Dogs. I love how it covers my waist fully, stretches with me when I move, and also looks great. The design in the back is cool, but it makes putting it on a bit of a puzzle. This shirt runs true to size (maybe slightly on the larger end) and support is light. I will wear a sports bra under it to run or hike & it works great. I've also had no problem with chafing while pairing it with a light daypack.
