Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I originally purchased this backpack to take on a two week trip to Mexico because my old one's strap broke. It was great for travel with a secure synch top under the flap. There is a hidden inside pocket where I kept some valuables and a padded laptop pocket. Now that I'm back, I use it everyday for work. The padded back and straps make it comfy to wear for long periods.

I love this rain jacket and receive many compliments when I wear it. I got the Gray Palm pattern and love how it resembles camo. I can typically wear a Small or X-Small and after reading the reviews, I went with X-Small. It fits perfect. I love the metal zipper as well. I've worn it quite a bit in the rain and it keeps me dry. Definitely recommend this rain jacket.

I love this sleeping bag so much that I purchased one for my mother-in-law for her 60th birthday. I have this tent and when she said she wanted a sleeping bag for her birthday, I knew just the one to get her. It's really warm and comfortable. It also packs down small for backpacking type adventures. It's also hard to beat the price. Recommend this tent for any female camper out there.

I lost my first pair of these and had to have another—they’re that great. The size fits my face perfectly, providing full coverage for my eyes. They are lightweight and stay put on my face during all types of activities—running, biking, and skiing. Because of the larger frame size, they sometimes get steamy when the top is all the way up against a beanie or helmet but I can usually get them to clear quickly by adjusting them or my headwear.

This light is so bright and easy to mount to your handlebars, plus it clips on and off its mount easily (so you can slip it into your bag when you park your bike somewhere less secure). This is my first proper headlight for city biking and it is bright, simple, and USB rechargeable—perfect.

It’s USB rechargeable, super bright, and easy to slip on and off the mount. I especially appreciate the 10% mode for when you’re biking with friends and don’t want to blind them. That mode is still very visible, plus the battery lasts forever when using that setting. The normal modes are very bright, plus the “breath” pattern is pretty unique.

This is my second origami fender (got a new one because my bike got stolen not because it stopped working!) and I love it. It is quick and easy to install, plus easy to pop on and off depending on the daily weather forecast. It provides adequate blockage of water for those rainy days but is probably best for a relatively dry climate (I use it in SLC). For the price and ease, it can’t be beat.

These are my favorite yoga and workout pants now. They are really soft and I love the pattern. The waist goes up higher than most that I have, which I like for some of the yoga positions. They are also not see-through. Highly recommend these if you like to receive compliments :) I wasn't sure if I should order the X-Small or Small, but I went with the Small and they fit perfect.

I don't like wearing bras with underwire or padding, and this bra has neither of those. It's perfect! I love the cute straps and it's really soft. I typically wear a size 34/B and I got the X-Small/Small and it fits perfect. You can be sure that I'll be ordering more of these.

I thought these shoes would be just a basic flat sneaker, but they are surprisingly comfortable. I like the low back and the heels are cushioned and seem to mold to your foot. I can typically wear a size 6.5 or 7. I ordered the 6.5 and they fit perfect. These will be my go-to shoes for spring and summer.

I bought this for a friend for her 1-year old's birthday party. The Mom and the baby love it. It's so soft and the colors are cute. It's a little smaller than I thought, but maybe because I'm not a Mom, so baby things seem small? ;)

The pattern on this tank is why I love it. Love the little pine trees and deer. I can typically wear a size small or x-small. I ordered the small and it is a little big. Not so big that it doesn't fit, just a little loose. It also has a semi-racer back. Super cute and really soft.

This jacket is exactly what you can expect from a rain jacket. I read in the reviews that it runs big, so I sized down and it was perfect. I am 5'2" and ordered the X-Small. This jacket keeps you dry in the elements.

I love this flannel. It is really soft and warm. It runs a little longer, which I like. I typically wear a size Small, but after reading some of the reviews that this shirt runs large, I went with X-Small. It fits perfect! Every time I wear this shirt I get compliments. Definitely want to get some more Tentree apparel.

I purchased this for husband for Christmas and it is his second Quiksilver wetsuit. The quality for the price point is great. It fits well and for being lightweight, it keeps him warm when he heads up to the chilly waters off the Oregon coast. Definitely recommend if you’re looking for a 4/3 chest zip suit.

The Aura AG 65 pack really has the best fit for women. It sits nicely on your hips with tight, comfortable straps that take the weight off your shoulders. There is plenty of storage space for all the essentials and lots of adjustable pockets to make the pack as big as you need for your longer trips. I love mine!

I purchased this for my husband who is a ski videographer and in the outdoors for long periods. He likes that it doesn't get fluffies everywhere. He also likes that it isn't scratchy when you wear it next-to-skin. It is warm and comfortable. He typically wears a size medium and I ordered him a medium, which fits perfectly. The sleeves are a little longer to help keep your hands warm.
