Familiarity: I've used it several times

I ended up purchasing this tent out of necessity after my other one crashed on me in the mountains. I've never owned a Big Agnes before, but I was blown away with how lightweight, flexible, and easy it was to set up and use. It held up in a week of pouring rain with absolutely no leakage, handled a massive wind storm in the Tetons with no issues while my partner and I worried about the poles snapping. It's a tight squeeze with two people, especially in the fall with all the additional layers required, so I'm not sure if I would take this backpacking with a partner because there was little space for our gear. However, this kept us all snuggled up and warm as temperatures dropped in the low 30's, high 20's. The stakes didn't hold up to their second round in Glacier National Park, so I'd recommend swapping them out for something deeper and more durable if it's your price-point and/or weight goals. I did not buy the footprint, so we used a tarp to prevent the floor from damage; I did not have the opportunity to use the tent without the rain fly.

I'm excited to take it backpacking with me come spring time to further test its durability.

I love this poncho. I love the size, flexibility, layer-ability (is that a word?), and it's sheer softness. The sleeves are loose so I never felt like I was drowning in swaths of material. I ordered the S/M and it's still rather large on me, and I have a big chest and arms, so if you're comfortable with looser clothing, order a size down. It's not insulated and can get drafty, so I recommend this poncho for casual, everyday clothing choices.

These are my favorite all day pant. They are so stretchy, comfortable, flattering, and versatile. I wear them everyday to work, and I wore them when hiking in the mountains this fall. The material is SLIGHTLY water resistant, which is awesome, since I've spilled a lot of water on these bad boys and hiked with them in the rain. Eventually, they will soak though, but the thoughtfulness in their design was great. They aren't super well-insulated either, so plan ahead of you want to layer your pants.

However, I've noticed that after several washes the seams begin to give and they get quite a bunch of piling that happens most notably across the butt and front of the thighs. Since I use them everyday, I try my best to be mindful of the rules: wash them inside out, I don't use fabric softener. However, nothing has prevented the seams from falling out on me. But I'm not deterred, I'll keep wearing them until they break down on me because I love them so much.

I ordered sizes 6 and 8. If I'm looking for a tighter fit I go with the 6's but at work, when I want to be comfortable, or if I want to layer up, I tend to veer towards the 8's because I don't like all the pressure around my hips. Hopefully Prana can address the stitch work and combat the piling to the best of their ability, but still a very comfortable, versatile pant in every setting.

If you're a big chested girl like me, I can imagine you've struggled with finding a good sports bra that is not only comfortable but one that also actually fits. I have always wrestled with finding one that keeps the girls in place but is also cute and fashionable.

I love using this bra. I love the color (I got the coral which is a LOT brighter than you think--and I wish they offered more colors!). I love the way the straps cross on my shoulder blades instead of resting its weight on my shoulders themselves. I feel like I'm locked and loaded, secure, and not to mention it gives me great cleavage. HOWEVER, it runs tight in the band itself. There were a lot of times after long hikes that I couldn't wait to get it off, simply because of how much it gripped my rib cage. I usually wear a 34D at Aerie, and a 32DDD at Victoria's Secret. If you prefer a tighter grasp around your ribs, by all means order your size, but retrospectively I would've ordered a 36C. Now, I can't wait to go run around and do all the things I wanted to do without wearing two sports bras.

So I spent WEEKS looking for the best lightweight lining to wear for a big hiking/camping trip I took to Yellowstone, Grand Teton, and Glacier National Park this fall. I can't say how much I love these pants.

First and foremost, they have the perfect balance of loose and fitted, while the actual band itself isn' t tight, which is so hard to find in a pair of pants. They're opaque enough to wear on their own while still being breathable, but I was also able to layer them under my Patagonia Quandry pants, my Prana's, and under additional thermal leggings. I can't stress enough how much I love these. They saved me from freezing on a 11 mi day hike in the rain, and they kept me warm all night long. 11/10 recommend, and wearing them while writing my review.
