I purchased this dress in blue as a gift for my best friend, Amy, and I don't think she's taken it off since. I love the pattern - she says it's ultra comfortable, fits well, and is great for hand stands.
I got these as a Christmas gift for my geoengineer boyfriend. He's always digging and picking for work and loved the design. He says they're comfortable and true to size.
I've never gotten so many compliments on a clothing article before! These pants/tights are super comfortable, form-fitting (they make your butt look awesome), and responsibly made. They are easy to move around in making them my go-to for yoga and indoor climbing, though I also wear them anywhere and everywhere else.
While all of Teeki's patterns are absolutely gorgeous, the Buffalo Princess pattern stood out for me. I wear a size 4 in most brands and found the medium in Teeki to be the best fit. I can be reached via the Live Chat service here on the site (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) or you can leave me a comment here and I'll get back to you ASAP if you've got any specific questions/concerns about the Teeki Fairytale Collection Buffalo Princess Black Hot Pant or just want to chat!
These Montara's are everything a hiking boot should be and then some. Comfortable from the get-go, these awesome boots provide ample breathability, great ankle support, a narrow profile, and are extremely well-made.
While excellent for long backpacking trips, these sweet duds also come in some beautiful colors making them great for wearing around town. I picked out the Astral Aura, and they are gorgeous. I typically wear size 7 in women's, and found these fit true to size. I highly recommend, feel free to contact me on our Live Chat service here on the site (Tuesdays and Wednesdays), or leave me a comment here if you've got any questions about these fantastic boots.
This is a great alternative to Dynafits! Awesome uphill capabilities with added security of the lateral toe release for the decent or the down days in the resort, and haven’t had any problems with prerelease. Swapping between tour/ski modes and adjustment of heel risers with a pole is effortless. Only gripe is the toe piece can be a little difficult to get into at first if you’re accustom to the Dynafit style. After the first few times it becomes much easier. No regrets on this great purchase!

This blanket is 5 by 7 feet.
This beanie is very soft, and extremely cute. I love all of the colors. Unfortunately it's a little too thin - by no mean poorly made, I was just expecting it to be a little more robust. Ended up returning, but if you're looking for a thin beanie, this may be the one for you.
