great lightweight jersey!
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

This is my first jersey with 3/4 length sleeves, and I think I'm definitely a new convert to this style... Great for sun/skin protection, and not too hot while charging uphill. The fabric is smooth and wicking and the floral print is really unique. The blue stripes on the sleeves are kinda reminiscent of a raccoon but whatever. Definitely considering picking up a second in another colorway!

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

I gave this helmet to my boyfriend... and I've thought about stealing it from him (based on looks alone.) The design of this helmet is really nice but he also says the weight and ventilation are perfect for trail riding.

Can't beat Yeti when it comes to purpose-made mtb shorts! I own the Freeland, Teller, and previously women's Norrie shorts (switched to their men's shorts for longer inseam length) and all have been close to perfect for riding in. I've found that the Teller shorts are great for most trail riding, as they're lighter weight and less burly than the Freeland shorts, but the fabric is tough where you need it to be. I don't even notice these when I'm riding which is a huge plus. Agree that the sizing might be a little small but I'm converting from women's sizing which is a little wonky anyway. So far so good!

This lid makes staying hydrated (possibly too) easy - I've been going through 20oz hydroflask bottle after 20oz hydroflask bottle since installation. I had to cut the straw to fit my bottle - the packaging has handy measurements to show you where to cut them. Comes with 2 straws! No leakage or other issues so far.

Love these so far! Funky twist on a classic look with the espadrille wrapped sole. I usually avoid buying bright white shoes since they never stay that fresh n' clean looking for long, but the white leather has held up perfectly after a few weeks of regular wear. There was a bit of a break-in period for these, and they still tend to rub a bit on the back of my heel, but I think they'll be dialed after a few more days of wear.

if you appreciate the aesthetic of traditional mexican blankets AND the feel of a cooling tech-wool sock, these bad boys are for you! I've only worn them with casual footwear so far (being today, the day I got them) but i definitely intend to wear them for a Cinco de Mayo trail ride with my bike shoes in the near future. so far, no complaints!

This hoodie is super comfortable with its fleece lining, and I appreciate the long length. My intentions were to wear this as a riding hoodie in warmer spring temps on the hill, but winter decided to come back so I haven't been able to see how it performs as an outer layer yet! That said, it's quite warm and water resistant...
Only downside I've found so far is that the thumb holes are TINY. What are these... thumbholes for ants? (they need to be at least 1.5x bigger to be used comfortably.) Great hoodie apart from the weird thumbholes!

After multiple waxing sessions trying to tame my brakes with zip ties, elastic headbands, produce rubberbands, and whatever else I could come up with, I finally decided to "invest" in these (they cost about as much as a fancy latte!) These do the job perfectly and are an essential in any ski tuning kit.

Fit: True to size

There are those super wintry days that call for knee-high Sorels with the fur... and then there's the rest of the winter, which these boots are perfect for. I was looking for a simple/stylish boot with a luggy sole (this is a tricky combination to find if you're a female), and something that wouldn't have issues busting through a couple of inches of snow and slush. These fit that bill perfectly and have treated me awesomely for the snow storms I've been through in them!

I ordered these in my normal size and found that the footbed feels like a good fit - but they can be difficult to pull on, and I can't quite wear a thick sock under them. Hoping they'll stretch out with time, because the lack of insulation + the thin socks I've been wearing with them = occasional cold toes. Definitely recommend ordering these half a size up if you can.

I love this jacket. I don't often choose my outerwear for the steeze factor but this has the quality of being both stylish and super functional. I own a 750+ fill down jacket that's about 3 times as bulky as this, and it's equally as warm! Great for wearing on and off the hill... I've layered this up under my shell jacket multiple times this season and it's performed great. Washes well too!

This thing is made for frigid chairlift days and hut trip hangs. I've found it so warm that it's hard to wear for long periods of time in a heated indoor setting (office, house with the heat cranked up, etc) but it's a perfect midlayer for those extra cold days! The loop-style buttons on the collar (which doubles as a neck gaiter/balaclava with the hood pulled up) are pretty finicky to get opened/closed, and Haglofs seemed to realize this, since they made the half-zip a two-way - in case you need to get into the inner pocket or pull out your beacon. The long length is AWESOME - it can be tucked into ski pants (for extra bum warmth) or worn over them. Overall I really like this fleece! Just need some colder winter weather to warrant wearing it more often :)

Love these Vans! I was looking for a pair of shoes that would break up the monotony of boots that I wear all through the Fall and Winter in Park City and these are perfect. The ankle-skimming height and faux-shearling lining keep my feet warm and cozy and their style is easy to pair with whatever. These fit true to size (I ordered two pairs based on reviews I read elsewhere saying they're hard to pull on - but they're actually super easy to slip on in my true size and almost feel half a size too big.)

This brand is my new fave. Although it's not very thick as sweaters go, the material is soo soft and the hemline is super unique. Easy to wear with whatever (although this definitely isn't long enough on me to pair with leggings like the product description suggests..) I have it in Oatmeal but I'm tempted to buy one in another color!
