Ouch! These would probably work pretty well, but I'd go for poles with some shock absorption. Like these ones: http://www.backcountry.com/store/LEK0073/LEKI-Summit-Antishock-Trekking-Poles-1-Pair.html
I'm in love. This is the perfect chunky winter sweater. Fit is fairly true to size, I'm a size 8 and the medium is perfect. The cut is really nice, very tailored and flattering. The chocolate color is a bit lighter than shown, but it's way cute. My one little complaint is the sweater gets a bit itchy after awhile, but if I wear a light tee underneath it's not a problem.
If you power hike, these should be fine. But if you prefer a more meandering pace, I'd go for a light shell pant with midweight baselayers.
Backcountry carries trail running shoes, not roadsters. The fit would be more or less the same, but trail shoes typically have more support, grippier outsoles and less cushion (they figure you're running on softer surfaces). My fave high mileage shoe is the Brooks Trance, great if you have skinny heels. Since it sounds like you're just starting out I'd highly recommend going to a reputable running store and getting some gait analysis. They'll have a good idea of what kind of shoe you need.
The colors on this dress are adorable, but unfortunately it did not work for me AT ALL. You can't tell in the pic, but this is actually a bubble-style dress - it flares out at the hips and is narrower at the bottom, which doesn't work if you've got booty.
Yup. This one has a zip-in/out fleece liner. Another good option is the North Face Windwall triclimate. Although I find the triclimates with a softshell liner more useful - the fleeces aren't that great on their own.
Goggles usually have the same width on the strap, and the front of the helemt is really open so it should work with just about any major brand goggle.I recommend Smith goggles though - the vents will line up perfectly for better fog sucking.
Sorry, bad luck I'd say. You could try getting on the Live Chat and asking a Gearhead.From the help center "If we put an item on sale less than 30 days after you bought it at full price, let us know and we’ll credit you the difference. This offer only applies to purchases made within the last 30 days, and only if we have the same size and color of the item that you originally purchased in stock."
North face fits pretty true to size. I'm a size 8 and always a medium. If you're in between sizes or prefer a baggier fit for layering size up.
No. It's a hoody, cotton poly blend.
It covers manufacturer defects. It's lifetime, that means for life. Some brands have unconditional warranties that cover any failure in the product. You'll have to look that up on your own.Backcountry also has an unconditional lifetime guarantee, even if the item isn't defective. You're covered.
I love my Kovens. (I have the Koven jacket as well). This is a great pant if you spend a lot of time touring. They're lightweight, super breathable, waterproof and have convenient venting. And you can always add more layers on a chilly day. However, if you're mostly freezing on chair lifts, you might want to trade up to the heavier duty RPK.
No. You need to get a similar Smith set up, like this one: http://www.backcountry.com/store/SMI0409/Smith-Twin-Tip-Cell-iPod-Audio-Accessory-Kits.html
I know a lot of skiers who swear by 'em. I've got a janky meniscus so I'm going to try a pair this year - I'll let you know!
Nope, this is not a 3 in 1. If that's what you're looking for, look for one that has the word "triclimate" in the name. The Boundary Triclimate is a good choice: http://www.backcountry.com/store/TNF3255/The-North-Face-Boundary-Triclimate-Jacket-Boys.html
Euro. Check out the sizing chart. La Sportiva runs a little narrow, so when in doubt size up.
Not exactly. But if you check out the men's Columbia fleeces you can probably find something that works.
Non, on ne peut pas envoyer a la France a cause des restrictions sur les textiles chinoises. Mais si vous avez un ami ou un membre de famille aux EEUU ou autre pays vous pouvez y envoyer vos ordres.
