Love that Poof!
4 5

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

I was given this product by Backcountry, but this review is my own personal opinion. I'm a sucker for anything with faux fur, especially beanies with faux fur poms on the top! This Calf Creek Pom beanie fit well, and did the job of keeping my head warm. I just spent a few days in the Grand Canyon and the temps are starting to drop, so this hat was a must-have for most days. It seems to be made of quality material and is well made. My only negative is that the hat doesn't have the option to roll down and be more slouchy. I do think it looks exactly as pictured on the website and I couldn't be happier with my new Calf Creek Pom beanie. It's warm and stylish and well made, which is pretty much all I can ask for in a beanie! I just wish there were more colors so I could buy a few of them.

Stylish Winter Jacket
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 3"
Weight: 120 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

I was given this product from Backcountry.com but this review is my personal opinion. I love the style of this jacket! I've been wanting a winter jacket with a faux fur hood for a while now and the Wingate Down Jacket fits the bill. Sizing is spot-on, as I wear a small normally and it fit as expected. The style is flattering in the way it's tailored. I would say it's more of a coat I would wear in the city rather than on a backpacking trip though- it's a dense jacket (not lightweight). It will definitely keep me warm in colder temps. I did wear it on some easy hikes in the Grand Canyon in November, which was perfect. The temps were getting colder and I was able to move around in this jacket comfortably. I can tell the construction of this jacket is very durable, and made with quality materials. The color seems more like a dark gray than black, but nevertheless I think it looked great and it was pictured exactly as it looked on the website. Overall I'm very happy with the Wingate Down Jacket and can't wait to wear it when the temps drop!

Cute, but NO stretch!!
3 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 3"
Weight: 117 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. I was really excited to get these pants, as they would be perfect for so many different activities like hiking, rock climbing, etc. The slim fit style is super cute and I love that they are slightly cropped. The fit was unfortunately too small for me- I normally wear between a 0-2 or small in pants, but I could barely squeeze my booty into these. The material seems durable and the pants are well made, however the material also has absolutely zero stretch to it, so I suspect that is part of the fit issue. I do feel the material is lightweight and color was just as advertised. I wore them once while camping, but unfortunately probably wouldn't be comfortable using them again for my usual activities (or even sitting) without fear of ripping them right down the middle. I would recommend sizing up if you decide to get these, and expect to use them for less active hobbies as they are not very forgiving! On the plus side, the Willow Woven Pant has lots of pockets to store chicken nuggets and tater tots!

Multi-function Power Piece!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 3"
Weight: 117 lbs
Size Purchased: Extra Small

I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. The Paradise Romper is awesome!! Now that the heat has peaked in Arizona, I'm loving on this closet staple even more and have worn it several times now. I love that the style and function works for a variety of activities- It's usually my go-to piece for pretty much anything- dinner with friends, running errands, swim cover-up, camping, and even road trips. I usually wear XS in tops and S in bottoms. I was nervous the fit wouldn't be uniform, like many other rompers I’ve tried on, but it fit perfect. The material has plenty of stretch and the back of the the shorts are slightly angled longer than the front, so I'm never worried about a butt cheek falling out. My bust is on the smaller side and the top covers it perfectly, without being too tight. I also love how adjustable the entire thing is, from the shoulder straps to the waist. The material is not flimsy and definitely more durable/thicker than I expected. The color and dimensions and quality were exactly as pictured on the website. The Paradise Romper is a summer favorite! I ¦wish there were more colors to choose from as I would probably buy multiple!

Awesome Jacket!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 3"
Weight: 117 lbs
Size Purchased: Extra Small

I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. I loved this Sky Valley Bomber jacket more than I thought I would! It's hard to tell from the photos whether it will be flattering, but in person I absolutely love the style and fit. This jacket was a perfect fit in XS, which is my normal size for tops and jackets. Sometimes an XS jacket can be a little too tight in the underarm area, but this jacket was very comfortable and didn't limit my arm range of motion. I've taken it on several overnight car camping trips on the Mogollan Rim in Arizona, and was perfect for the evening chill when temps dropped. I also felt like it was more stylish than my usual camping pull-over, and can see myself using it when I'm out on the town or traveling too. The jacket overall is durable, more for leisure activities, as I wouldn't likely use this style of jacket for my more active hobbies anyways. The color/dimensions and quality were exactly as pictured on the website. The Sky Valley Bomber Jacket is well made and I'm sure will be a staple in my closet, especially when the weather cools down again in Arizona!
