Bought a Loose fit
4 5

Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 130 lbs
Size Purchased: 40

These pants are very comfortable, and I was surprised at how much I loved them. The only think I would change would be the size. I have a size that fits very loose and large; however, it fits a very loose casual style. I took these out for a weekend trip where I experienced sun, snow, rain, and mud. The soft shell is great for light rain and snow. There is a hook on the front, which act as an integrated gaiter. You can also tighten the bottom of the pant around your ankle, or around your boot to prevent snow from getting in your shoe. There is also plenty of breathable fabric on the back of the pant so that I was never hot while hiking. I could have easily gone with a size 36 for a tighter fit. However depending on your needs and what you are looking for size up if you would like more room.

Adorable
5 5

This backpack is very cute and stylish. The cute wrist wallet that is included with the bag is an EXCELLENT perk. I was very excited to find that in the bag. The wallet can hold my iPhone 6, all of my cards, and cash. I mainly use this as my work backpack and it fits my work computer when it’s not folded over. However when my computer is not in the pack it fits quite a bit of stuff. I have taken it hiking, and on a weekend getaway. It held all of my clothes and accessories I needed for the three-day trip. I have not experienced any issues with the straps. I found them quite easy to use.

I was a little disappointed in the quality for the price of this flask. I bought this as a gift for my husband. The box was pretty smashed up and there were several scuffs on the flask which was a bummer, however I didn't have the time to exchange for a new. It didn't effect the quality of the flask. The flask sleeve and leather shot glass holder add a very masculine touch which is wonderful. The size is also perfect for sticking in your pocket. Not too big, but also not too small - Will fill up all 6 of the shot glasses.

Fit: True to size

Bought these for my husband and her is what he had to say:

These are tight in all the right places, and loose in all the right places. I absolutely love them. They take underwear to a whole new level. Great for getting out side and touring, or even going to the gym. Get these guys if you want to treat yo self.

This jacket exceeded my expectations. I took it on a Yurt trip, originally a little concerned it might not be technically enough for a 12 mile expedition into the backcountry, since the jacket seemed a little more geared toward city life (for which it does great with is beautiful color, fit and off center zipper.) The jacket is primaloft synthetic insulation which was an excellent idea; stayed dry (with the DWR coating) and warm in small snow flurries. There were times the sun was out while touring, and this jacket was also breathable and I was absolutely not too hot. Once at the Yurt the jacket was great for walking around camp, as well as chilling with peeps making dinner. There is also an internal pocket bottom right hand side which holds your phone. An excellent feature. This jacket was very functional, and looks great. A definite must buy.

Setting the Mood

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

This little Lantern is everything I wanted and more. It rotates through Several colors which you can choose by pushing the power button. To turn the lantern off, push the power button until you reach darkness. The colors are all so beautiful and sparkly. It adds the perfect touch to my van at night, while drinking a bottle of wine or reading Jurassic Park, or the Lost World (a few must reads). If you don't get this for yourself you can also use it as a stocking suffer, or just an awesome little gift. It inflates and deflates easily, and the solar battery lasts a really long time. Ive used this thing every night for two weeks now and haven't charged it once. Lots of fun.

light, simple, and reliable is definitely the best way to describe this probe. Its great for the price, comes with a slim little bag, and its super easy to pull out and put together. There is a small handle on the end of the probe that you pull and it pulls the wire on the inside of the probe and pulls the whole thing together, and with a small click, its ready to go. Thankfully I have never had to use this in a real life situation, however works well in practicing up in the mountains. Is a great probe for a great price.

Gliding through life
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

These skins are wonderful and very easy to trim. They come with a trimmer that makes them ready for use as soon as you want to trim them to your ski. My husband and I have no problem skinning up steep terrain in the cottonwoods, and have had no issues when them so far at all. We are taking them on a Yurt trip to the Uintas this month and are very excited to use them. As with all skins, they can be a little tricky to remove since there is such a large surface area of adhesive, but once you get them rolled up they are easy to stick in the bag they come with and back into your pack.

Helpful tip when sizing your skins: You want to get skins that are as wide (or wider) than the widest part of your ski. As much surface area you can cover with your skin the better. However, if you have parts of your skis showing at the top and bottom, with a rockered ski, thats absolutely ok. So if you get them and you have about a cm on the side where the skin first meets the ski, they will work just fine.

Also for good "skin" care, make sure to let them dry out once you get home.

Got these for a friend for his birthday. He is not a big runner, however needed a good pair of inbetween gym hiking shoes. He loved them. He says they are very comfortable, and do great on hikes. They fit true to size as well. They are a good shoe for the price. They are very adequate for the job but nothing super special.

These boots have been one of the best finds. I’ve always had a difficult time finding ski boots that fit my wide width of my foot, narrow heal, and muscular calves. These really fit the bill perfectly. When you get them don’t be detered by the tight fit. No boot fits perfectly right out of the box. Heat moulding is definitely a must. I wore these several times in the resort to break them in before taking them to the backcountry. They perform so increadibly well, and respond very well in ski mode. Walk to ski mode is a very easy transition. The top buckle also has a latch that is mobile to flex with the foot when touring (in walk mode) I am generally a size 6.5 in shoes and the 23.5, and possibly could have gone down to a 23.

The Binding to End all Bindings
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These bindings have just about nothing wrong with them. The only issue I had was learning how to step into the toe, but that took all of one day to figure out. Transitioning from walk mode to ski mode is incredibly easy, and they ski beautifully down powder and provide effortless control. However, the best thing about these bindings is the DIN settings. Most every other Tech binding doesn’t have the option to adjust the Din which is a bit scary. So having that makes a big difference. I would definitely recommend them to everyone. They are great for Backcountry skiing, as well as resort. The only reason I would not use them constantly in resort is just to avoid the wear, but they preform great anywhere you take them!

Functional
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 130 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

Bought this jacket on a whim, and very glad that I did. I was a little hesitant, but I have not been disappointed.

Pros:
-Very warm and great for dry weather activities
-Cute jacket
-Has inside pocket, which is great for keeping your ski pass, or phone/wallet/money
-Fabric is very durable
-When soaked it still stays insulated
-If it happens to drizzle it has a SLIGHT ability to bead off the jacket, however that is not this jackets strong suit.
-Has a big hood suitable to work with a helmet.
-Fit true to size
-Warm and perfect for skiing.
-It has an oversized quality to the body, which works great for layering with sweatshirts or sweaters.
-Great for technical and casual use.

Cons:
-This will get soaked if you are in a humid environment – also gets wet in the rain, and snow (as to be expected) works great with a shell.
-The jacket, worn with the wrong pants, can either make you look like a 90’s mom, or a child over bundled in ski gear – however I would take functionality over fashion, and the functionality of this jacket definitely outweighs the fit.
-I suggest wearing this jacket with a shell unless you are skiing on a perfectly blue bird day.

Fit: True to size

I bought these for my little sister and she loves them. They are super unique, and trending hard right now. She fits right in at school with these and look adorable with her converse. 10/10 would buy again. They are made of very thin material which I was not expecting. So I am a little weary of how durable they will be with a lot of wear.

Some mixed emotions about these leggings. I have the Blurred floral print. They are very comfy and soft, and the pattern is very cool, but they are not the most flattering. I think a large part is due to the loud pattern. It’s not very slimming. I have gotten compliments on them, but I think it’s because they are so different, not because they actually look good. I think if I had got a smaller size and a quieter color I would like them more. But in terms of use, I love practicing yoga in them. They are very comfortable, and don’t ride up or down when posing all over the mat.. I would be willing to try another color and size in these.

These pants are comfortable, but I do not think they are flattering on my body. It might be the boot cut, and the fact I’m short, or maybe the size is just too big. The fabric is great, but I just don’t like the way they fall around my ankle. Im 5’4 and there is A LOT of fabric around my ankle. Like 4 inches. I haven’t really worn them very much since they look kind of weird. But I can imagine they would be great for climbing considering how stretchy they are.
