I LOVE LOVE LOVE this fleece! I typically don't wear pink or white very often but I saw this and just had to have it!
This is a lightweight fleece with a retro look. I love the softness of the color! I think most people would think it fits a bit large but this is supposed to have a classic oversized fit! It is so cute with boots and black leggings!

This should go with just about anything else! Great for a lazy Sunday or some cute errands!

II am so in love with these pants! I'm currently wearing them now, working in the Backcountry.com office. Even the men are jealous of my amazing down warmth. Here I am just cuddled up at my desk, no biggy.

I have not used these pants skiing or snowboarding yet! I love that the booty is not insulated! Since you do sit down while snowboarding you would eventually crush them down with your bum! Not having the down in the back of the pant means this product will be more durable and last longer!

I love this fleece
I'm very petite and it is hard to find clothing that hugs my body rather than look loose. This sits perfectly above my butt and comes in around my waist. It also fits very comfortable on my shoulders. I love the thumbholes and the little side arm zipper features!

This I think is one of the cutest jackets from Arc'teryx. I know that is usually not why you pick out such a high-quality option but it doesn't hurt!
This jacket fits me really well and moves with my body. The jacket does not come up when I lift my arms up.
I'm 5'2 and 105 pounds and I typically wear an XS and I am an XS in this as well! It offers extra room in the upper arms so you can wear insulation if needed and not get your sleeves pushed up your arm!
I wish I could have worn this in gnarlier conditions but I just didn't get the chance!
Being an Arc'teryx item with Goretex I know it has been tested in a bunch of different ways about 1000 times! When you want to be dry and stay dry, you should always look into Arc'teryx!

Don't forget you can also retreat fabrics a few times each season to keep that waterproofing at its very best!

I have never worn a more comfortable legging. These are a bit thick and warm on my body but they also feel very breathable and just damn soft!
I love the thickness of these, I've never owned any leggings like this. The pockets on the side are so cute!
Honestly, North Face is making the best leggings this year! I can't wait to hike around with these!

I love these tights! I will say each picture online represents them incorrectly. These do have a bit of a unique fit on them but I think they are extremely trendy!
They are a bit more loose on the crotch and upper leg and they have a bit more room in the thigh. These are not skin tight, if you do size down in them you have a chance of looking like a stuffed sausage! These are meant to be worn with a little room for movement. THese are my favorite pants I currently own, I cannot wait to go hiking in the desert with them!
I love wearing these with a cute pair of socks and my flatform Teva shoes!

I am trying to dress a bit more trendy and I love incorporating a bit more of an outdoors or utilitarian vibe!
These fit true to size, the material feels a bit cold to the skin so I haven't been able to truely wear them out on a hike since its still cold.
I think these look extremely cute with a pair of chunky hiking boots or some Flatform Teva Sandals!

I love these Flatform Teva Sandals!
We've carried these for a few years but they are extremely trendy this year! They are currently sold on Free People and Urban Outfitters, that is how trendy these are!
I love these, I got them in a half size down and they are perfect! I'm usually a 7.5-8 but I'll try got wear a size 7 when it comes to sandals so my feet look smaller!

I do have arthritis in my midfoot/toe joint and these make the pain worse but pain is beauty and I'm still giving them 5 stars if you like it or not

I haven't had a chance to use this on an adventure yet but I don't think I'll ever go without a few of these! I will be purchasing more as well for hiking around in the summer! I think this is a great way to keep an extra set of clothing in a small bag if you need it!

So comfy!

These are hands down my favorite bindings. Each time I look around for a new binding I end up back at the Lexa. I am not snowboarding for speed so I enjoy more of a natural feel in my binding and boards. I enjoy being able to work each foot a bit different to have that constant pressure on my bindings.
These bindings are the perfect natural flex for me, personally.

I don't believe these excel in any particular thing other than how comfortable their straps are. I believe where this binding excels is simply how versatile it is.
The binding itself is easy to step into, I can easily move the straps and ratchet out of the way to step in and ratchet the binding all while still standing up. Not like that is a big deal but I've used bindings that do not get out of your way and I have to sit down each time to strap in!
I am an intermediate snowboarder, I enjoy taking full carves, I may wash out a few my carves because I'm not comfortable at high speeds yet so this is ideal for me since the bindings are soft enough I can slide out of a carve no problem!
I never caught an edge using these bindings and I never felt any gap in how it held my boot!

I really enjoyed the fit and size of these goggles. I typically wear medium sized goggle but I am a small woman! I really did enjoy the entire feel of these goggles. I never fogged them once and they seemed pretty resilient to scratches compared to some of my other goggles!
The only issue I really had with these was the locking mechnism to change the lens. I couldn't get around to change the lens without actually touching the lens and I don't really like that. I had to carefully wipe away my fingerprints from the corner edge after changing out the lens.
Maybe it was just a personal issue on how I was swapping them out but I will most likely stick with my Anon WM1 so I can swap out my lenses without touching the front of them!
