I love love love the aphrodite range from north face. I have the black shorts, and have bought the long pants as well. I get comments all the time. They are so comfortable, breathable and flattering.
I've definitely put these through the ringer wearing on multiple backpacking trips, countless hikes and even scrambled in them and they are still holding strong. Despite being in the strong sun all the time they have held their color really well. The zip pocket is super handy too I always stash my lip balm in there.
The elastic waist is great because I have a bit of a booty with a small waist so I don't get the gapping I do with other brands (cough patagonia cough mountain hardwear). I've been wanting to get another colour of the shorts so I can have more options for my summer adventures!

I've been using this mug for a year now and it's fantastic. I bought it because it resembled the one my dad had been using for the last 30 years and I hope mine lasts that long. I'm an ultra light backpacker and this is perfect for me, it weighs next to nothing and is big enough for soup sachets, morning coffees, nuun tablets and more!

I bought it for my husband to replace a cheap light down jacket he'd ruined wearing it walking home in the rain too often. This jacket works perfectly for what he wants it for and I'm happy that it's synthetic so when he gets it wet I know its still keeping him warm. It packs down really well for a synthetic layer as well great for stashing in your pack!

This is the first rope I've ever owned and so far so good! I bought it to start lead climbing in the gym which I've been doing for about 4 months now. I really like the feel of the rope, tying knots in it is super easy too!
I haven't taken it outdoors but for gym climbing, it's been fantastic

I got the black striped design of this beanie thinking I could swap between black and striped. The black side is definitely the inner side, it had a tag sewn in to it with the care instructions which when I remove I had to unpick the stitches which wasn't super clean and not the sem looks a little jacked.

Other than that it fits under my ski helmet perfectly which is what I wanted from it.

I feel converted to merino blend socks now. These socks are super breathable so if you get the sweaty feets like I do sometimes it's not a super uncomfortable experience. They wash well, I've done nothing special and they have been holding up great. Actually as I'm writing this I've decided to buy two more colours, You can always use more socks

I have reynauds and I bought these gloves to act as a liner under my ski mittens. I get sick of having to take my mittens and liner gloves off to use my phone when I'm out skiing. Not anymore though! The etip works really well and I was so happy with them I bought a pair for my husband. They are on the thicker side for liner but due to my circulation problem, they work great for me. The only annoying the is the clip to keep the gloves together gets caught in my ski mit when I pair them together so I'm considering cutting that off.
I've used these gloves so much that I've washed them a few times. I just through them in the machine then air dried and it works a treat!

I really like this top, I bought it to wear in my day to day life. The details on the arm are a really nice touch and the material feels both breathable and warm. I love the pop of colour it adds to my wardrobe when it's cold and dreary here in Seattle.
In terms of the fit, I can't decide if it runs too big or not. The arms are a little long (but I have this problem all the time) and if anything it's a little tight round my booty (which I also find typical of an XS). It is long, which I like about it, you can pair with tights or jeans.
I've washed it a few times now, it's keeping the colour and the print detail on the arms is holding up well. I usually hang to dry to avoid damage in the drier.

I bought these before heading on a ski trip to the Canadian Rockies where the temperatures were expected to get below -30C. I layered these under my shell pants for a few days on the slopes in these conditions and they kept me toasty warm.
They don't pack down super small which is a shame because I was considering taking these on future mountaineering trips where I could put them on at summit/camp.

I bought this jacket before a winter trip to the Canadian Rockies wanting something that looked cute and also was super warm. This jacket delivered on both counts. I get so many positive comments when I wear it.
The high collar is really great which you can zip all the way up when your neck is cold to act like a neck warmer, so I often wear it without a scarf.
I got an XS which is pretty form fitting on me and that's what I like about it. I have other patagonia fleece layers but the fit on this jacket is so much more flattering.

I'm always looking for cute workout gear and I was drawn to the splatter paint print of this top which looked really great when it arrived. The material is super soft and feels great on your skin when you are working out.
My biggest issues with this tank are it's not very flattering. It is 'flowy' like the name suggests but at least on my body it looks more sack like. The pictures on the model make it look much more fitted. It's possible I should have gone a size smaller and that might have helped.
