I love this jacket. It is super warm and fits great. Every time I wear it, I get compliments. I love the color and the adjustable hood is a great feature. The stretch around the arms makes it easy to move and it is not restricting at all. Definitely recommend.

I got this jacket knowing it was supposed to be warm, but it is so much warmer than I thought. I was planning to wear it for backcountry skiing this winter, but I've found myself wearing it almost everyday as the weather is getting cooler. It's not too bulky and seriously warm. It fits true to size and the sleeves are a bit longer, which is great for activity. Definitely recommend this jacket.

I bought these shoes for my husband. He says they have great traction for off trail. They are a bit heavier than the ultra trail shoes, but that provides a thicker sole for more traction, support and protection for rocky trails. The tongue is padded so it snugs around your foot when you tie them down. Overall, he loves these shoes and the color is really cool.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I got this for a gift for a friend's baby shower, but had to return it because I didn't order it in enough time. My fault. If I had my own kids, I would've kept it because it is so cute and seems like to would keep the little one warm and snuggly. Tiny TNF clothing is just adorable.

This pullover is so comfy. It is super soft and I love the thumbholes. It does seem to run a little bit large. I typically wear a size Small and probably could've gotten the size X-Small, but decided to keep the Small anyway. It is also a bit longer and would be cute to wear with leggings. Can't go wrong with the price.

This flannel is super comfortable. Every time I've worn it, I get so many compliments too. It's a little longer in the back, which I like. I also love all the cute little details. I typically wear a size small and a size small fits me. It's a little bit bigger and definitely has room under if you needed to layer.

I love this vest. It's not too bulky and it fits super cute. Definitely runs large, so I would recommend sizing down. I'm 5'2" and got an x-small, and I have plenty of room to wear anything underneath. It's a good length and has stretchy sides. The pockets are also super soft and makes me want to put my hands in my pockets all day. The first day I wore this I got so many compliments. I got the gold color and I want to get more. Super cute!

These are my first pair of Red Wing boots and I LOVE them! Because they are handmade, the quality is hard to beat. They are super comfortable and are true to size. I'd recommend treating the leather so that they last for a very long time. These boots are perfect for everyday wear.

I purchased these shoes for a backpacking trip I went on, and these were perfect. The sturdy, Vibram sole was great for slippery surfaces. I love that they are Gore-tex because we did have to cross a bunch of puddles. They fit true to size and I will definitely be wearing these on all my upcoming hikes.

You can't really beat the price for this shirt. I purchased for a backpacking trip I went on, and it's just what I was hoping for. It's thin and breathable and super lightweight. I love that it is longer in the back and the v-neck makes it seem not so "techy". I would definitely recommend and I will most likely be buying this in another color.

This is my go-to coffee mug in the mornings. I love how the cap has two holes that you can open or close easily. It doesn't leak and it's a great size. I got it in the electric green color and love the way it looks. It's not too big and fits in my car's cup holder. Definitely recommend this for hot or cold beverages. Would make a great gift!

I pronate and I've always been told that I need arch support, but it always hurts my feet. Turns out, having flat shoes is not so damaging to your feet as people say. These shoes are flat, but there is a wider toe box so your toes don't get squished. These are super comfy and perfect for trail running because of the extra cushion on the bottom. Super grippy and would be perfect for going up Timp. I would recommend these shoes or any other Altra shoes.

You can never have too many Vans Authentic Shoes. I wear these all the time. I typically can wear a women's size 6.5 or 7 and I ordered a 6.5 in these. They fit perfect. I got the all-white color and can wear them with just about any outfit. Comfy!

Not only do my husband and I own this tent, but my best friend had this as something she wanted as a wedding gift. I purchased it for her with no doubts because we love our tent. The 3-person is perfect for two people and a dog. It's super easy to set-up and great if the weather is bad. I would definitely recommend this tent and my friend also loves it.

These sandals go with just about anything. I can dress them up or down. There is no support, but I pronate so don't like shoes with high arches. The black leather, looks more grey and worn right out of the box, which I like. I typically wear a size 6.5/7 and the size 7 fits just right. They do take me a second to put on because of the toe strap.

My sister always raves about these shoes and how comfortable they are. For her birthday, she asked for as second pair. I ordered her the Black/Black/Dark Grey, which looked more dark blue to me. But she loves them enough to want two pairs. I think I need to order myself a pair now :)

I purchased this rack and am happy to report nothing but positive feedback so far. It comes disassembled but the instructions are easy to follow and all the parts were there. From beginning to end it probably took 30-40 minutes to install and the directions were simple. Yakima even includes all applicable tools for assembly (wrench and hex key). I also like that this rack comes equipped with a hitch lock and integrated bike locks to make it ready for use right out of the box and nice to be able to ride before work and leave my bike locked for the remainder of the day.

It's priced competitively compared to other racks and what really sold me on this rack was the compact design as I don't have a lot of extra room when parked in my garage. Very easy to get your bikes on and off and the bottle opener is a good touch as well, especially after those dusty rides. So far I have nothing but good things to say and am happy with the quality, design, value.
