Lauren E's Bio

This jacket has been my every day, every condition ski jacket for the past few seasons. From frigid blizzards to soggy spring days, this shell has seen it all- and has seen it brilliantly!

I have never worn a jacket that protects me from rain, snow, and wind the way this jacket does. It is compatible with various liners and it proves to be roomy enough to comfortably layer underneath, but to not feel overwhelmed. It is a super versatile option for any weather condition. That being said, it is a heavier weight shell, due to some of the additions (powder skirt, pit zips, ample pocket storage, removable hood) but as a snorkel seeking snowboarder- the powder skirt is a life saver! These are all aspects I wouldn't sacrifice for a lighter jacket. Plus, the pit zips allow for MAX breathability!

Pull the trigger folks- this jacket is the one! And, if anything goes awry - that lifetime warranty is there waiting for you!

Before you read on, you must know... these are DA BOMB. Seriously I am tempted to buy 2 of every color. These are so comfortable, and perfect for anything. REALLY. They are the perfect traveling and camping undies, but honestly I wear these to climb, trail run, ski, bike, swim (okay only in emergencies), sleep, and every damn day all day! They are softer than a baby's bottom (don't you miss that feeling?) and they are so fast drying you won't even remember they were ever wet! GET THESE.

I got this jacket as a replacement for my Isotherm (every day jacket which I also love love love) that was just a little bit too big, and just not quite warm enough! This jacket is a step up in insulation, and keeps everything warm from the core to the hands! The fabric is stretchy enough to use this jacket while being comfortably active, and I never felt like the jacket was going to rip or snag on the rock when climbing! So far, its been used as my fall hiking, belaying, and climbing jacket and it has been stellar in the falling temperatures! The jacket has also repelled some drizzling rain, which is great! Not waterproof- but protective enough :)

The hand pockets are also amazingly cozy and the internal pocket is perfect for your electronic device, wallet, key fob, etc!

I always wear small in Marmot (most things running a bit large)- and even with my Gumby arms, the sleeve length is just right in this!

Can't wait to use this thing in the snow!!

I will never go back to another short- I hope they make these happy hikers til the day I die! Rocking all three colors, I hope they come out with some more! These shorts are not only extremely lightweight and moisture wicking, but they can take a beating!! I have worn these on several expeditions- snagging them on trees, sliding down scree slopes, and all season on the river! These dry quickly, and they fit incredibly well on my lanky bod. I normally wear a 2, and fit well in a 4 in these- especially with the elastic tie adjustment! The pockets, front and back, are the kind of pockets all women's shorts need.. just an overall perfected design.

Did I mention they're complimented just about every time I have em' on? Do yourself a favor. Get these shorts, and make yourself a happy hiker!

These socks are a great cushioned go-to for any type of hiking expedition. I highly suggest them for longer treks, as I have never had a blister wearing them. They are breathable, durable, and oh so stylish! They are soft and after many many washes, they are still nearly the same high quality they were when I got them a year ago. Definitely my favorite cushioned sock. Darn tough socks are what they say they are- go get em!

They're also a killer campsite sock- they keep those toesies warm around the fire!

My Pillow Hikers

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

Transitioning from a stiff leather hiker to these breathable, cushy, comfy and supportive rockstars was the best gear decision I have made in a while. These shoes are comfortable ALL DAY, and right out of the box. I have used them on backpacking trips, leading summer camps, and day hikes alike.. and plan on bringing them with me this summer to trek the Tour du Mont Blanc. I look forward to my happy feet as I romp around the world.

The ankle support has saved me a number of times, and they are blister free boots! The toe box allows you the control you need to stay comfortable on the trail, but the rest of the foot forms very nicely to your foot.. not too wide! I have very narrow feet and have struggled finding a shoe to fit. These fit both narrow and wide feet comfortably.. not something many boots can claim!

Additionally, my father works as a greens superintendent at a golf course, which means he is walking miles in mush and and mud every day, and these have been his go to shoes for as long as they have been out. Get em!

I wear a size 9 street shoe and purchased a size 9- perfection!

I snagged this guy for my boyfriend for Christmas this year, and I think it was the best gift he has, and ever will receive. Invest!!

This board is an amazing all-mountain board. It floats through powder, but holds its edge on a speed run dodging groom rats. He has used it riding big mountain, as well as sketching through tree runs... it really is just perfect.

The flex is pretty stiff, which creates a responsiveness you couldn't ask more of... this board allows you to ride like a pro!

He is 6'2 and weighs 170. He got the 164 and its perfect!

Before you get all flustered and get on here to return this item, or write an angry review about how this mat doesn't provide adequate grip... use it a few more times.. it will. :)

This mat is awesome. It is cushy, lightweight, and eventually as grippy as you need! I have used it for hot yoga, easy wake up yoga, and travel yoga alike.. and it has been killer all around! It is a bit bulky as a travel mat if you are looking for something super compatible.. but it is definitely light enough to keep ya happy! Definitely an awesome mat for the price.

I got a set of Petzl Spirits a few months ago beore a big climbing trip to Red Rocks Nevada and I could not be happier. Clipping these guys is super smooth, overall making me more comfortable as a progressing sport-climber. Compared to our friends gear, the spirits have been the lightest draws I have ever used. Going up a 5 pitch sport climb (aka The Big Bad Wolf with a set of 12 draws felt like I wasn't even carrying gear. Highly recommend for those who are stoked to try something new!

These shoes are awesome. They are lightweight, but super supportive.. and the heel technology launches you step after step.. and shock absorption is right! They stay comfortable all day, and I have never seen a blister or a cramping foot after any long hikes! I pronate slightly, and these shoes keep me in line always!

I use them for trail running and double them as an approach shoe since the rubber on the bottom is so nice. The toe protection has also saved me a number of times. Overall, I highly recommend these shoes.

The only thing I would further suggest is trying them on first.. I always wear a 9, but with these trail runners, I did have to size up to a 41 (9.5). Many others have found them to fit perfectly true to size. You'll want a bit of wiggle room so your feet can expand and for your toes to stay safe!

This pack traveled with me around the world, and it rocked my world. I cannot say, however, that I was happy every second of it....Nothing to do with the pack itself though, just make sure to weight a your bag and walk around before you leave on your expedition!

Other than poor weight distribution on my wonky body, this pack was absolutely incredible. I used it for a backpacking expedition through Europe (SUMMER) and it proved to be everything I needed, and more! The pockets on the side were awesome to store toiletries, snacks, sweaters, swimsuits, pants, really whatever your heart desires- they're pretty huge! The internal cavity is awesome, especially with the option to separate into two separate sections (I wasn't using a sleeping bag, so it allowed for easier organizing.)

The top pockets are also super convenient for things that you need to access easily, and it is a dual compartment, the top providing quite a bit of space!

The hip belt itself was really comfortable, and the little pockets on it were perfect for a phone and passport. I will definitely be sorry to say goodbye to this bag :(

5'8, 125- S/M was great

I love Chacos- they are an awesome, classic, versatile outdoor sandal! They are definitely comfortable, but it seems I found myself complaining more about them than the cool tan lines I was getting from the straps.....

I have really narrow feet, and sorry partners, but these are not made for a narrow foot- even with the adjustable straps. I wore them on a trip scampering around Europe, and while they were an easy water shoe and supported my arches... the BLISTERS were out of this world.. BREAK THESE IN. They're alright for hiking, but watch your toesies.

Overall, they're a pretty sweet sandal, but there are definitely some things to watch out for.

Size 9 street shoe, purchased size 9. Perfect length

Before you continue to read, you should probably just throw these in your cart. These socks have been my GO TO since putting on the first pair I ever ordered! They are awesome for my narrow feet, and I dont think I have ever work a softer sock. They're amazing! They definitely breath when I use them to run/hike/casually walk around and they are still kicking it after about 6 months of pretty heavy usage. I highly highly highly recommend you snag a pair of these!

I wear a size 8.5-9 and a medium is perfect.

These boots are super supportive, responsive, and comfortable! They mold to your feet after a few rides, and they stay warm and tight all day long! They are amazing for touring and hiking, as the traction on the bottom is amazing. The only problem I have noticed is that the left boa tends to loosen a bit after a few runs, but a quick rotation and we are back in action! I can't give these 5 stars due to that malfunction.... but other than that they have been stellar!

They do run a little bit large!

I have a shorter torso but still loved the length of the vest. I like the inside pocket. It is super light weight, but definitely keeps you warm and is thin enough that it packs up small! Keep in mind that this is synthetic, so a down vest is going to keep you a bit warmer.. but as a midlayer it has been awesome. Only complaint is that I have noticed some of the filling seeming through the seems... not super impressed by that for a Patagonia.. Overall great vest though!
