this coat is awesome for back country adventures. I've been using it to hike and snowboard and its very breathable and a total wall to the wind. It is warm for a softshell because it's fleece lined so i usually shed it halfway up the hill but it's light and easy to throw on and off. The cut is very flattering and the fabric isn't super stiff like other softshells can sometimes be. It's a fairly true fit, maybe on the large side for marmot stuff (i usually go a size up but this time I got my regular size)

Only complaint: I wish it had a hood!

I've taught snowboarding for over six years. I haven't been able to find a pant that moves well with snowboarders other than burton pants however... the first week I owned these pants the crotch ripped open (while I was teaching a lesson). After 3 weeks of horrible customer service from the VT Burton flagship company, they finally returned them to me. A few weeks later the pocket where I kept my Burton snowboard tool got a large thin spot and hole in it from wear, the bottom leg zippers started pulling away from the fabric, and the knees rapidly began wearing away(there isn't enough fabric to be waterproof). Bad quality. Bad service. I used to be a big Burton fan....

This bag saved me! I teach snowboarding (and other outdoor sports) and I now travel back and forth between Vail CO and Burlington VT. I had a normal backpack material EMS duffel bag that got a huge hole in it after my first trip. I could have lost some very expensive gear. This bag however is perfect. I downsized and got a Lg and its a great size, it really expands to hold everything. The quality is ideal for airline travel as well as carting it around campsites. The backpack straps give me more hands to pull my snowboard bag and other gear through the airport. My boyfriend convinced me to get this bag after he traveled the world competing in Nordic events (his is like 10 years old and looks almost like my new one, maybe a little dirtier). Now i plan to live out of this bag and surf next summer! Don't even think about not having at least one of these bags!

This shirt is amazing. I was scared when I got it since its much lighter and thinner than the old Cap 4, but it's much better. I wore this for the first time hiking a fourteener. It got really cold and windy at the top so i flipped up the hood and slipped my hands through the thumb holes. It was the perfect amount of warmth... Plus, even though I was really sweaty, the shirt did a very good job at keeping me dry so the wind didn't freeze me. On the way down as it warmed up I unzipped it all the way down and instantly cooled off. My boyfriend wanted one after that trip but they don't make it in mens... this was an excellent investment!

I love everything I've gotten from Ibex. It's warm, sustainable, fashionable, etc. I don't use this as a technical piece because it's a great looking sweater and it feels good to put on after a hard day of biking or snowboarding. The sizing is true.. i usually wear med. and this med. fits perfectly. It's pricey stuff but definitely worth it!

I used to swear by Smith sunglasses. But I switched when my polarized lenses got a stress fracture and Smith wouldn't give me the time of day. Smith will not under any circumstances, even manufacturing flaws, warranty lenses. That's an expensive replacement (especially when I've no reason to believe the lenses won't fracture again).
