Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I got these for my mother and she has nothing but amazing things to say about them. She wanted a reliable pair of goggles that didn't break the bank and she said these are exactly what she was looking for. She also didn't want a pair of goggles that were super big on her face. She thinks that these fit her face very nicely.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I gave these to my cousin as a Christmas present and she loves them. She is getting better and better at snowboarding and need to upgrade her bindings on her current board. These bindings were softer than she expected but that makes sense because they are not supposed to be stiff bindings, as they are right in the middle on the stiffness scale. She doesn't ride much park yet but she might start and this is a good binding for that. She does more all mountain riding and this is the perfect binding for her.

This fits my dome well! It doesn't go down too low on my head but also doesn't sit up too high. The grey one does look a little bit lighter in person than it does in the picture. I wear this all the time and it usually comes with a few compliments.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I weigh about 200lbs and would consider myself a pretty aggressive skier. These are such solid bindings and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a hard charging binding. I put these on two pairs of skis this year and they have both treated me very well. These allow me to send cliffs at snowbird and not worry about coming out, but when they are supposed to release they seem to every time. If you are questioning if this would be too much of a binding for you, feel free to contact me directly with your questions. My email is adesilvia@backcountry.com and I would be happy to answer any ski questions you might have.

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

I am so stoked I purchased these skis. I was on the fence about buying these and then finally pulled the trigger about two weeks ago. I got these to be my powder ski when Little Cotton Wood Canyon get some fresh stuff. I got the 192s and put the Look Pivot 18s on these, I weigh about 200lbs and would consider myself a pretty aggressive skier. I would definitely recommend these skis to anyone looking for a playful powder ski. If you have any questions on this ski or any others on our site then hit me up. My email is adesilvia@backcountry.com and would love to answer any questions you might have.

These have been very reliable and they have held up thus far. The locking mechanism that is on this poles has been working fine for me and it is really easy to use. If you want to email me with additional questions then I would be happy to help you out. My email is adesilvia@backcountry.com.

I got these at the beginning of the season and have nothing but good things to say. I actually got these for my dad as a Christmas present and he has a couple days on them as well. I am 6'5" and weigh 195, I got the 193s and ski them at Snowbird. Definitely a charger of a ski and a great for any conditions. I have ridden these on deep powder as well as ripped them on the hard pack when there is no new snow. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a ski that can do it all. If you have any specific questions then feel free to contact me at adesilvia@backcountry.com

I got this about a month ago and i love it! I have always been a die hard Hydroflask guy but this bottle preforms as good/if not better than those hydros. I have used it for coffee as well as ice water. The ice cubes will stay solid for hours and my coffee stays almost too hot to drink. The lid at first was a little weird because it is attached by a string but you eventually get use to it. Let me know if you have any questions about this product.

I just got this pack last week and I am already so impressed with it. I have not had the opportunity to use it out in the backcountry yet, but I definitely will be leaving some comments after I do (currently praying for snow)!! I have put all of my gear in it and it is the perfect size. The shoulder straps have very nice pads on them so it is very comfy when it is on my back. The hip belt is also one of the more comfy ones I have felt, it has very nice padding and is very well balanced. The pack gives you opportunity to carry your skis in a diagonal or an A-frame position. A couple other sweet features that this pack offers is a helmet carry net that can be easily stowed away, back panel zip option for when you have your skis in an A-frame position, and a good sized goggle pocket. I am 6'5" and the Large size pack fits me very well. Super excited to use this pack this coming season. If you have any more questions on this pack or any others you see on the site, you can contact me directly and I would be happy to help you out.

Fit: True to size

She absolutely loves these pants and they do look very good on anyone. They are great for being outdoors but you can also wear them around the work place. My friend says "I own several pairs of these pants and they're some of my favorite from Prana! I wear them hiking/backpacking, climbing, on long travel days, around town, and always make sure to throw a pair in my bag when traveling around. Size 0 fits me, but opted for a size 2 because I wanted a looser fit. "

Fit: True to size

I gave these to my friend as a gift when she got into the nursing school and she loves them. They are easy to clean off if you spill anything on them and they are very comfortable she says. She spends long days on her feet so having a comfy shoe is very important. She definitely would recommend these to anyone thinking about purchasing.

Fit: True to size

I gave these away as a gift because these were the ones she had picked out. She absolutely loves them and she wears them all the time. She says "I needed a nicer shoe for when I have to dress up, but was super tired of only finding uncomfortable, toe-pinching options until I found these. They are super comfortable and have a cushioned footbed, so I can wear these for hours without any discomfort."

Let me just say that the color of these looks way better in person than it does on the website. The Blue is a little bit darker and then the orange doesn't look so salmon. I got these for my girlfriend and she says "I grew up running in Brooks and then made the switch to La Sportiva. After a bad bout with shin splints, I decided to switch it up and try a new brand. These took a couple days of getting used to the wide toe box (they felt a bit big at first), but quickly got used to them and am super happy with my purchase. They're great for running, hiking, and everyday wear. Size 6, true to size."

I got this for my girlfriend and she looks so good in these shirts. She did have a dew things to say about this product and that is as follows..."It's become my new favorite shirt and I have it in several colors so I can wear them every week. The cut is longer in the back and nice and flowy throughout, but still super flattering. Usually wear a small, but sized down to an xs."
