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

I have only gone snowshoeing once in my lifetime. But these snowshoes made the experience simple and enjoyable. They served their intended purpose and gave me the confidence to handle terrain that would have been unwieldy and even treacherous, otherwise. This equipment gave me the confidence to run up and down icy slopes as I chased after my dog.

I do get the impression that these snowshoes could perform better in deep snow.

Love, love, love the heel lift.

I bought the White/Fire/Andes Blue colourway. I wish the blue was darker.

I bought this hat to replace my wife's old Patagonia hat because I started wearing her old one and she claimed I stank it up with my brow sweat and pheromones. I thought this would be a perfect replacement but the mesh on the hat I was replacing is a darker shade of blue.

So I gave this hat to my cousin instead of returning it because most people should have a Patagonia hat.

Other things to note: this hat is better suited for average-sized/bigger heads.

Classic black hat. Fits well. I don't feel basic or extra when wearing it. The aesthetic is exactly what I wanted: a solid black hat with simple branding.

The first time I put this hat on, I could feel the spandex and organic cotton envelope my dome as if my head were receiving a long embrace from an old friend. Would wear again. Would recommend.

I'm like a 7 1/4 and bought the S/M.

This glove is a great value. I was choosing between a few pairs of work gloves and ultimately went with another pair so I returned these but think that maybe I should have held onto them, just to have them.

I did not have the greatest dexterity when I tried these gloves on but they are inexpensive for what they are.

I love love love Red Wing boots so I figured their gloves would be top quality.

They are good. I wear these when shoveling snow and scraping ice off my truck's windshield. Given they are made from a more supple leather, I do not expect them to last quite as long as another pair of leather work gloves. I feel that I maintain a good deal of dexterity while wearing them and will continue using them.

I am satisfied.

I walked in on my uncle drinking a Shock Top with no shirt on while watching the game. I presented him with this shirt as a Christmas gift. I saw him the next day; he was drinking a Shock Top with this shirt on while watching the game.

He likes this shirt. It fits a bit looser than expected but he likes his clothing to fit looser so it all worked out.

I asked my wife what she wanted for her birthday. She told me to buy her this jacket. I chose the buffalo green/industrial green colourway and she loves it.

It goes great with jeans, leggings, jeggings, you name it. It is warm but lightweight and she highly recommends the green if you're looking to get this jacket.

I purchased this jacket for my mother, my grandmother, and my mother-in-law. They all appreciated the gift and had good things to say (i.e., it's soft, warm, not too bulky, etc.).

The branding is conservative (old people love that). Personally, I prefer full zippers to 1/4 zippers and so do they.

Thank you Backcountry for helping me to find a gift that was both thoughtful and practical. I have no idea what I'm going to get them next year, though.

Pointer Brand is renowned in workwear and streetwear circles. I prefer the aesthetic of the low back overalls to the high back overalls.

Lamentably, there is no option to buy low back overalls in a tailored cut. I opted to buy them anyway but the legs are cut too wide for my taste so I returned them. If you actually have any muscle mass on your legs or if you would wear these for actually doing manual labour, I'd still recommend giving them a try.

I just want a pair of overalls so I can dress like Chance the Rapper.

I bought the Chambray/Feather Grey colourway for my father-in-law as a gift. It is a great, conservative-styled shirt that goes with everything. I was really at a loss as to what I ought to give him but this turned out to be a great gift. And it's something I know he wears.

Bought these for my sister-in-law. She says she likes them but I'm not sure if she's just being nice. Just kidding. Everybody loves Ultraboost. My wife has a pair of Ultraboost too and she says they are super comfortable.

I'll buy myself a pair as soon as I stop spending all my money on scratchers and Chick-fil-A.

Very fashionable. Very comfortable. You don't need to be a runner to own a pair of these.

These mittens are definitely more fashionable than Ken Bone's Izod sweater. I purchased these for my wife so I cannot speak to their functionality, but they look very cute.

And for those who don't know, mittens keep your hands warmer than gloves.

Awesome pair of women's boots

The Vibram sole offers good traction. These boots offer plenty of support. They are recraftable (Danner will resole them for you instead of making you buy a whole new pair of boots). And most importantly, they are super cute.

Personally, I prefer buying an expensive pair of boots that will last you a lifetime instead of choosing cheaper boots and having to buy a new pair every few years.

If it's good enough for Reese Witherspoon, it's good enough for my wife.
