5 5

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

This bag has replaced my Patagonia black hole that I used for everything. The construction of it is extremely durable and super water resistant making it perfect with ski gear. The waterproof compartment is perfect for ski boots or other wet gear and the shoulder straps are padded for comfort while running through the airport. Lots is straps to cinch it down and the gear loops are a plus so you can clip things to it. I’ve only used this bag a couple times but so far I’ve been really happy with it.

Almost has everything
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This product was given to me by Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. Packs are like jackets to me, I have a ton of them but they are all missing something. Let's start with the pros: pockets! I'm a pocket gal, I like lots of pockets and I like my pockets to be purposefully placed. The Backcountry 27L Daypack does not skimp on the pockets. There are a ton of them and they all serve a purpose. I really appreciate the fleece lined pocket, perfect for sunglasses. The bladder pocket is extra big, I fit a 3 liter bladder in it. The color of the pack is really nice and the material is abrasion resistant. The padded shoulder straps are comfortable while hiking and don't rub at all. Cons: no rain cover. I personally think every pack should come with a rain cover but maybe that's just because I live in the PNW. There is also no waist belt which also kind of bugs me. If I'm using this as a full day pack and packing it full I would prefer a wait belt for added comfort because the weight of a pack should be 80% on your waist and 20% on shoulders. Without a waist belt all that weight is on your shoulders. Granted a 27 liter pack wouldn't be crazy heavy but still. Also if you were to add a waist belt I'd say add pockets to that wait belt. Overall a decent pack.

Meets all of my needs

I'm one of those people that doesn't intend on buying new jackets but somehow I end up with a couple new ones every season. They all serve a purpose but most are always missing something. So far the Backcountry x Flylow Pfiefferhorn has met all my needs as a backcountry skiing shell. The athletic fit and length are my favorite parts of the jacket. It's long enough that I can wear a harness with it and snow doesn't creep up my backside. The pit zips are extra big for when I get too hot while touring (which is all the time) and the hood is helmet compatible. So far it has withstood PNW weather and hasn't wetted out on me. Really happy with this shell!

The Perfect Hoodie
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 7"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: S

I was given this product by Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. I have a lot of hoodies, they all seem to work for one thing or another but the Backcountry West Slabs Tech Fleece Jacket is the hoodie to rival all other hoodies. I wear this thing literally all the time. It has some awesome features that seem to be lacking in other hoodies including nice deep zipper pockets, thumb holes, and the zipper zips all the way up to my chin. The inner fleece is super soft and warm, keeping me cozy for mountain adventures. The outside is smooth to the touch and so well constructed that is flatters my figure without being too form fitting.
The DWR finish makes in withstand wind, water droplets, and even the never ending amount of dog hair that my two dogs produce. I'm very happy with the West Slabs Tech Fleece and will be wearing for many days to come.

Love my first pair of bibs!

I was given this product by Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. First and foremost are the pockets, there's so many of them! One of my biggest complaints are women's ski pants is the lack of pockets so I was so stoked to see more than 2 pockets on the Backcountry x Flylow Patsey Marley Bib Pants. The two chest pockets are perfect for my beacon, chap stick, and other essentials. I've never had bibs before and wasn't sure if I would like them or if it would be hard to pee, but the side zipper made going to the bathroom a breeze. They have been super breathable and withstand PNW winds and snow on long tours. The fabric isn't too still and moves well, just not sure how long it will last in the long term. There's a little bit of extra fabric in the hips on me because I have narrow hips but not enough that it bothers me. I typically would never buy pink but these are more of a dark fuchsia. Very happy with the Patsey Marley Bib Pants!

I usually love a good zip up hoodie for day to day use but the Basin and Range Out And About Mock Neck is my new go to pullover. The fit is perfect, the collar is super flattering, and I love the pockets. Can't love this pullover enough!

I was given this product by Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. I received the Icebreaker BodyFit 200 Oasis Legging and the matching half zip and really like the legging. The fit is great, more true to size than the top. I found the top to by too itchy to wear without a layer underneath but the leggings don’t bother me. I wear them under my ski pants for ski touring and the keep me warm and also to smell horrible after I’ve been sweating a ton. I would definitely recommend the Icebreaker BodyFit 200 Oasis Legging for cold weather adventures.

I was given this ‹product from ‹Backcountry, but‹ this review is my personal opinion. The Icebreaker BodyFit 175 Everyday Half-Zip Top works great for me for backcountry ski tours, which is what I primarily use it for. I think it does run a bit small/snug. I got a size M and it'€™s pretty form fitting for a M. I also have to wear another baselayer under it because it'€™s too itchy against my skin. I like that the BodyFit 175 Everyday Half-Zip has a tall neck to keep the wind out when I'€™m touring and the zipper doesn'€™t irritate my neck at all. I'd just suggest to size up and if you'€™re sensitive to wool you'€™ll need to wear something underneath it.

I have these pants in a different color and absolutely love them but this pair seems to fit a little different. I don't have a butt and I feel like I'm constantly pulling them up. I also feel like there is extra fabric in the crotch area. They fit perfectly everywhere else and I can't imagine going down a size but I wish they fit the same as my old pair from a year ago. I'll still keep them because I do love how soft and comfortable they are. Works for climbing but wouldn't wear them for a nice night out.

They use the word 'float' to describe the La Nieves and that couldn't be more true. They glide through pow and have solid edges for icy, crusty conditions. These skis are light and don't weigh me down when I have them strapped to my back when I'm in mountaineering conditions. I paired them with the Dynafit TLT Radical ST 2.0 Binding, it was a match made in heaven! Couldn't recommend these skis enough!

I wanted something that would add protection without looking like a heavy duty glacier goggle. The Treelines are the perfect pair of sunnies for all my adventures- from backcountry skiing to hiking and climbing. The removable sides are super cool with the little magnet that holds them in place. I'm hoping next season Sunski will come out with some more color varieties.
