My wife bought this fleece, here's her take:
It's hard to not love any Patagonia fleece, but this is a great one to have. It fits a little slimmer than some of my other Patagonia fleeces, so it's going to be a shoe-in as my layer on those cold winter days out on the mountain. Also functions as a super cozy fleece on lazy days that fits in well on any couch. Very happy with this purchase.

We've used ruffwear collars on both our dogs and have been happy with them. This one is no different. It's a nice size collar that is not obtrusive and seems to be holding up to all our outdoor adventures. The Crux buckle seems very secure and unlike to become undone accidently.

I purchased these shoes for my wife, here's her take:
These shoes are bomb. They are super stream-lined, lightweight, and grippy. The 4mm drop is something I always have to build up to when hill climbing, but this shoe is worth the effort. They're my go-to for most activities and also the ones I throw into my suitcase for vacation (they pack down small). While I often have trouble with the width of men's shoes, these fit great and conform well to my foot without any bunching around the toe box. After trying a few other brands last season, I'm happy to be back in a pair of salomons.

Purchased these shoes for my wife, here's her review:
I have yet to find a shoe brand better than salomon for trail running. I'm easing back into running after some time off and was looking for a shoe to build mileage in. I have previously run in everything from the super minimalist salomon sense shoe to the extra burly speed cross. This shoe falls somewhere in between. As always with salomon, I'm super happy with the tread and grip on almost any terrain. The 6mm drop is a comfortable starting point for me to build up on hill climbing without injury. While I do have a narrower foot, I have not had the width of this shoe impact trail mobility or control. It's a heavier shoe than the sense 6, but still has great breathability. I anticipate pulling these shoes out for many days into the fall season.

My wife purchased this bikini, here's her review:
These bottoms are awesome. They have great coverage if you're looking to be active, but the cut-outs in front keep them sexy and in-boring as well. These are easily the most comfortable bikini bottoms I own. Super happy with this suit!

Super happy with this purchase. Since other tops don't always fit me perfectly, I am really pleased to have a top that has some flexibility in style and fit. Love the pebble color and I feel like I can do anything in this top and still have support and coverage.

My wife bought this dress, here's her review:
I'm a sucker for anything chambray or denim, especially in the summer. I love the softness of the material and the tie belt gives the dress a little shape. It's longer in the back by a bit, which gives it a little more personality than your average chambray dress. Overall very happy.

My wife purchased these sandals, here's her review:
I decided to splurge on a pair of more durable flip flops after my puppy decimated all my cheap ones. The narrow birk's feel so much less sloppy to me than I remember my old pair from high school fitting, which is awesome because I suspect I might wear these everywhere. So if your foot is on the narrow size, these are certainly an improvement in fit. The colors are true to the photos. I sized down because I hate when my sandals are too big so I expect a little break-in time, but hopefully they will last for years to come.

I bought this shirt for long hot trail running days. The shirt is light weight, breathable, and wicks moisture perfectly. On top of all that the Arc'teryx craftsmanship shines and the 50+ UPF rating helps to keep you out of the sun.

My wife purchased this vest, here's her review:
This is a nice alternative to the salomon hydration packs I've been running in for years. Although I still can't make up my mind about weight in the hydration sleeves on the front, knowing that I can slip a hydration bladder in the back pocket makes it a no brainer to try out. The pockets on this vest are much more accessible than on my pack, so no more stopping and undoing the straps to access the necessities. I can easily carry water, phone, dog treats, and disposable bags with room to spare. I also appreciate that there is no chafing along my shoulders from the straps, which I have occasionally encountered with my pack when I wear a tank top. Overall very happy with this vest.

I use these socks after big runs. They keep the circulation in my feet moving so that I recover quicker. They are also great for reducing swelling during a long flight. They work great.

My wife purchased this top, here's her review:
Great staple to add to the wardrobe. Fit is a little long, although easy to tuck into the front of jeans or shorts to compensate. The material is super soft and is exactly what I want to throw on during a hot day. My only other gripe is that it seems to wrinkle a bit easily.

My wife bought this jacket, here's her review:
Following some other advice seen online, I purchased this jacket in an xs, rather than my normal size s. It still has a boxier fit than some jackets, but you can use the inner draw cord to cinch in the waist. Although I was a little unsure of this jacket at first, I find myself grabbing it all the time for cool spring nights due to its weight and neutral color. Overall I'm surprisingly happy with this purchase.

These socks were weird to put on, but after you get over the toe sock thing they actually work really well. They are well built and breathable and I love the fact that they allow my toes to be in their natural position.

I upgraded to the fenix 5 from the fenix 3 and am loving the 5. Both watches have very similar functionality but the main difference is the profile of the watch. Garmin makes three versions of the Fenix 5 with the Fenix 5X being the largest model and similar size to the Fenix 3. I went with the Fenix 5 due to the size (slightly smaller) and not needing the digital map functionality that the 5X offers. Overall a sweet watch that tracks everything you need it to.

This hat works perfectly for what it is intended to do. The drawcord in the back makes it easy to fit, the visor has three positions, and it is very breathable. Great for long runs under the hot sun.

These skins are build well and get the job done on long days in the backcountry. The glide is perfect for the Wasatch and the grip is exactly what you want when skinning over varied terrain. The added razor makes cutting these skins fool proof. Overall very pleased with G3 here.

Typical Arc'teryx product. The build quality is high and I definitely got what I was looking for. I have a couple pairs of these shorts and they don't break down (even in the seams or at the thighs) despite running some high mileage. This is the only short I buy right now.

I bought this bottle as a replacement to my older Salomon bottles. Overall the quality is better but the bottle is taller, so it took some getting used to in my older Salomon pack. The newer Salomon packs won't have an issue with this bottle as the carry system is deep enough. Overall this bottle does what it is supposed to.
