So far, these are my favorite cycling shorts this season. I just bought a 2nd pair of these short. They fit a slight bit tighter than my other bike shorts (Fuji & Pearl Izumi), but once you get past this, I gurantee you will love them. They are true to size - I typically wear a medium and this is what I wear in these shorts (I'm 5-ft 8-in and 135 lbs).

I ended up with these skis by chance (they were not my first choice). To date, I am not disappointed. To date, I have only used them 3 days (over Xmas weekend), but so far so good. They float through powder with ease (the pow was up to my knees!), but also performed good on the groomed slopes. It took me a few runs to get used to them on groomed slopes since the width underfoot is wider than I'm used to (my last skis were 72 mm underfoot). FYI...I mounted them with the Rossi SAS 120 wide binding - awesome binding!

I used these goggles for the first time this weekend, and I have to say they are the best goggles ever! During the weekend, I skied in both flat light and very sunny conditions. It was nice not too have to worry about switching out lenses. I would recommend spending the extra money to get these goggles - they are definitely worth it!

I finally found the perfect fitting ski pant! It has been a long and frustrating journey, but my search is now over. These pants fit a woman's curves in all the right places without feeling tight and constricting while skiing. The waistline falls just below my belly-button, and I have not had any problems with these pants being to low to tuck in baselayers (no snow down my pants yet).

I have this version of the jacket without the hood. It is my favorite outer baselayer for skiing, and will be buying a few more for this season. I typically wear it over a merino wool long-sleeve baselayer on really cold days on the slopes to keep me warm. You can't go wrong with this jacket!

This is my 3rd merino shirt from Backcountry, and it definitely will not be my last! It is my go-to baselayer. It does not itch, and keeps me warm without ever getting chilled like you do with synthetic baselayers. Another plus is the thumb holes - I am finding less and less shirts that have these, which it disappointing. You won't be sorry purchasing this item!!

I've been looking at both this ski and Burnin Luv. This year I will be spending approximately 95% of my time skiing Colorado (I'm a blue/black skier). Over the past several years, I've been skiing the east coast and the alps on carving skis. I don't have much experience in powder and would like to improve my skills in powder, but still want to rip the groomed slopes and hit the bumps. Any help on which ski to go with? (I would be will to go with other than K2 ski) Thanks!

I just received these pants. They fit fine (I got the Small/long - I'm 5'7.5" & around 133 lbs), but I think I like them in the boot-cut version better. I recently tried on the boot-cut in a local store prior to receiving these pants. The boot-cut fit me better and felt more comfortable. These pants are too baggy for me from the knee down - the boot-cut version had a all-around better fit. These still look good, so I probably will keep them since I'm too lazy to return.

These goggles do the job on nice days, but not in flat light. When I purchased them, I did not realize they were not polarized (my bad for not reading the specs carefully). However, they fit with my helmet great and the fit was perfect for my small head. In addition, I got a lot of compliments for their looks.
