This hat is amazing. It's super soft and bendy so it recovers from any squishing inside your pack or under a pile of gear. It's not as hot or itchy as other hats with plastic in the rim, and stays relatively snug on your head. I use it mostly for mid-distance trail running, and sunny approach hikes. Once it started to get grimy, I threw it in the wash and it came out looking brand new and in perfect condition.
If you're looking for a more technical hat to get sweaty in, this is it!!

I bought this since Patagonia decided make a sub-par option for women - I'm 5'11" and bought the Small. Waist and arm length is great. Shoulders and arms are slightly baggy, as I expected, but makes it great for layering and mobility.

These shoes were stiffer than anything I've trail run in before, which initially took a little getting used to. I decided to try and accelerate the break-in period by wearing them as my approach shoes for a month or two, which worked wonders. They now fit great, and are super supportive on rocky trails, grippy on soil and trail-snow, and keep my feet happy for long days. Love them!

I LOVE my Katanas! I'm on my second pair (pair number one is still great after a re-sole, but I wanted a back-up option so that I never have to go without them.
I climb all over Arizona on every kind of rock, and I always always pick these shoes. They're great in cracks, on edges, and even slab (don't fit too tight).
The tongue is the most comfortable I've ever had on a shoe, the laces work great, and they break in perfectly in just a couple days.
I'll probably continue to buy these shoes for as many years as I climb, and if they ever stop making them, I'll stock up.
I'm female, size 9.5 street shoe, and wear 39.5. Purposely didn't fit them too tight. My toes get sore after a long multipitch, but I can wear them for long periods of time without taking them off at crags or the gym.
Stop your search here, and just buy them already ;)

I like these pants and I wear them quite a bit, but they're not quite what I was looking for. I wanted a thicker, sturdier workout pant that I could wear climbing in the gym, running, and just in general. The fabric is very thin and tends to stretch out more than I would like in a workout pant. To PrAna's credit, they've actually held up much better than I would have expected, even when brushing and bumping rough climbing holds at the gym, which is probably why I decided to keep them!
They're probably best for lounging or yoga.

I bought this shirt to have a light breathable layer that I could wear climbing that transfers well between sunny pitches/shady belays, etc. I was mostly sold by the thumb holes and mitten cover for my hands, which is great for running and cold hikes. The shirt is super breathable, the hood actually stays on, and it dries pretty fast after getting sweaty.
I'm tall, and the fit is perfect, although the upper arms are a bit baggy (lanky arms), while the forearms are more snug.

I was looking for a puffy that would keep me warm while winter-desert camping & climbing (AZ, Moab, Red Rocks). So far, it has done the job perfectly! I comfortably camped in almost freezing temps. The double zipper is perfect for a harness - I can actually zip up my jacket while belaying, and the pockets are amazingly warm just from your body, so when you put chilly fingers in, they warm up fast!
The details like velcro straps to tighten sleeves, drawstring at the bottom, and soft liner in the pockets and on the neck cover are the best!
I'm 5.10, and the length of the jacket and sleeves is perfect. (M)
I have yet to test it out skiing this winter, but am feeling really confident that it will keep me toasty warm.
