Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought these boots specifically because they have a lower cuff and I have huge calves, but they have a normal size foot box (100mm) because my feet are not wide. I am an intermediate skier who bought my first pair of boots two summers ago. I was duped and sold a horrible product that did not fit at all and I paid the price while skiing in pain. My goal of every single run was to get to the bottom so I could unbuckle my boots and feel the blood rush back into my feet. That being said, I have not been able to ski with them yet, since its not summer but I am actually looking forward to it this year. I think these boots will give me the control I'm looking for without the pain. I will update next year once I have tested them out for real. I would highly recommend to any ladies with oversized calves but normal width feet.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large

Best sports bra I have ever owned. I have (3) just to make sure one is always available. I wear this bra for Crossfit or running. It does fit fairly tight and would not be comfortable to extended wear, I wear a different sports bra for low impact/longer activities. I am a 36D and at first I bought the large based on the sizing chart but it was too big, I returned for the medium and it fits great, I purchased 2 more mediums over the course of a year and they fit the same. Order a size down.

This is my first real sleeping bag so I dont have much to compare to besides your typical cloth rectangle bag. That being said, I love this sleeping bag. I have used it in the 50-70 degree range several times, at 50 degrees, the bag is extremely comfortable all zipped up with just a tee shirt and shorts on. At 70, I was more sleeping on it or with one leg out. The double zipper feature is great for the warmer temps because it allows you to fold down the top half of the bag to vent. I am 5'6" and ordered the long and it is perfectly roomy without being too big. The fabric is very comfortable against my skin also.

Fit: True to size

Very comfortable, fit and coverage are great, I wear this for sailing, hiking, and other low impact activities that I would prefer a sport bra for. I am a 36D for reference. This bra will definitely not do for running or other high impact activities. I own (3) Isis No Limits bras that I wear during crossfit and they are a god send.

I bought this about a year ago in April 2012 and didnt get to wear it spring skiing until this April, but I loved it all year round in between. Its a great light jacket, thats water resistant. I like to take it with me in the fall/spring when its sprinkling, not for downpours though. This spring I wore it with a light capillene 2 tshirt for snowboarding in 60 degree weather, it was perfect. Great on the chair ride up, and not to hot on the way down because it lets the wind in when your going fast enough. It seems wind resistant in less than ~15kts. Overall, great jacket because of its versatility.

I have only ridden this board for 2 days, however, in those two days I was able to get in the trees in some untouched powder and also ride some bumps and groomers. I have to preface this review with saying this is my first rocker board and the past two boards I have had were Burton Feelgood ES (womens, stiff, tradition camber) so this is quite different. Due to the rocker design, this board floats through powder like a dream, no more heavy leaning on my back foot to get the nose up. I thought it was incredible how easily I could switch from side to side making turning through the trees more enjoyable. In the bumps, this board took a little more effort to get around because it doesnt have the same pop as my old board, still fun and manageable but a little more effort to get from bump to bump. Lastly on the groomers I could tell I didn't have as much hold as a camber board but personally I did not mind because zipping down groomers is just not my thing. I did take it through a snowboard slalom course and could carry a decent amount of speed through the turns. Overall this board is a great candidate for someone looking to expand past the cut trails into the woods or beyond. I'm really looking forward to more riding this weekend on it.

I order this jacket as well as the Patagonia Primo jacket. I recieved them both the same day and compared what I liked about both. For this jacket, I really liked the placement of the underarm/chest vents, they were easy to reach and open/close. I also really liked the zip in/stowable balaclava. I did not like that the powder skirt had no loops to attach to pants and that there is not a zip closure pocket on the inside. The pocket to put your media player of choice is accessed from the outside which makes me nervous even with the Goretex just from a cold/easier to drop into the snow if fumbled. In the end, I ended up going with the Primo (although about $75 more, got them both about 50-60% off) because the powder skirt links to my pants and although the intended media pocket on the primo is also external, it does have a zippered inside pocket I could use.

Fit wise I am 5'6" with a large build, I worry most about my shoulders when buying jackets. I bought the large and had a perfect amount of room to layer (I am always cold) and had free movement of my arms.

These pants are perfect! They sit high on my waist, which I like to help keep any snow out, but don't bunch up when I sit down or bend over to strap my foot it. They are also really warm without being bulky, I usually just wear a pair of patagonia capeliene 4 pants underneath anywhere from 10-30 degrees and I stay comfy even while on the chair lift. The waterproofing also works excellent thus far and hopefully holds up for while.
