First time buying a Backcountry brand item, doing so because of a coupon. I was startled by how well made and comfortable these socks are. I have Thorlo's, The North Face, Patagonia, and Wigwam light, medium, and heavy socks, and these are just as good as any of them. The lightweight was actually a little heavier that most other brand lightweights, placing it as a light-medium weight. Just awesome for my trailrunning passions. These are the best buys in socks I have ever come across. Could use some different colors as there were only two available, but I have no complaint...all socks end up dirty after a few runs anyway. You will not be disappointed with these at a great value.

Best all around outdoor activity belt ever. Got one on a lark after reading reviews; functional, stylish without the frills, easy to adjust, stays put when cinched up, and great quality for the money. I also get asked about it all the time. You can't go wrong here! Cut it to fit (leave room for shirt tucks and future growth...better to cut it too long than too short!), melt the end with a macth or lighter, and strap it on. No regrets here!

I have been trail-running for 25-years from Arizona Sonoran Deserts to High Alpine Forests. I have worn ASICS, Adidas, Nike, Brooks, New Balance, and Montrail trail shoes; never have I had a shoe that fits so well, provides so much protection, traction, and comfort. I would wear these for everyday activities except I might not look so forward to sliding these on for my trailruns. Best pure trail shoe ever.

These are the most comfortable, functional, stylish, snow, slush, heavy rain, boots I've ever owned. Warm? It's like walking on a Cabo Beach in June when it's below zero out and the snow and wind are trying to highjack your wardrobe. I have found the best all-around cold weather boot and it's name is Baltoro. Recommend the 200 gram-thinsulate if temps are not below freezing and the 1000 gram-thinsulate if it is constantly below 20-degrees "F" outside. For everything between, the 400-gram does the job. Your feet will sing your praises!

These rock! They are perfect for cool to cold without moisture environments. The wind is stopped dead-on as opposed to the Denali's (another great glove for less extreme weather). I have several The North Face gloves for every expected weather condition. These do as advertised, warmth and wind resistant. You will not be dissappointed with these. The design, technology, fit, and price are flawless.

This shoe is great buy considering how kids feet grow. The performance (fit, traction, water-resistence, comfort, style, etc.)are hard to beat. My daughter loves 'em and wears them with varying weights of socks depending on weather. Don't recommend for ankle deep snow. That's what full boots are for. Won't be disappointed with these.

Bought one for wife as an alternative to the scarves she wears in the winter. She wore it for the first time last week and raved over it. Comforable, not itchy, stylish and can fit into a coat pocket when not needed (try that with a scarf). My daughters have the Smartwool Neck Gaiter and love it too for the same reasons. Both good buys.

Bought two pair this fall for trail-runs through the Northern Arizona alpine forests. Great support and comfort. Will wear as a base layer this winter when the snow flies and the wind is knifing through normal clothing. I will agree with other reviewers that you need to up a size. I wear mediums for a perfect fit in all other pants type wear, when I got these for my first run, they felt short and during the entire 6-miles, they kept pulling down and I was constantly yanking them up ("sagging" is unbecoming and unsafe when solo-running in the backwoods). Backcountry took 'em back and exchanged them for larges with no hassle. The larges fit perfect. Backcountry has made me a loyal customer. These tights won't dissappoint.
