Love the FIG color (which some would call lavender). I've worn this on sunny days and will wear more this summer. The draw-string to help hold it on in the wind, priceless. The only down-side, if a very windy day, and walking into the wind, the front brim will blow up, diminishing any protection from the sun. It is floppy.

This is a true finishing touch for a cold or cool day. Cute as it can be. Warm, and it is fully lined. An elastic across the back, makes sure it fits. A fun hat that is functional and stylish. I got the burgundy, true to color and love it.

I'm a fan of this style top from Patagonia. Even though most of their sizes run a bit large, I'm 5'9" tall, broad shoulders, long arms, so I order an XL, which is perfect because the sleeves don't hit me mid forearm, but all the way down. Depends on height and build as to whether one would call size true, too small or too large. They are warm, well made, much heaver than the competition,the name of which I won't mention. I wear one of my many in my collection every day in the winter.

I own several of of this top, in different colors and designs. I wear them every day during the winter, with layering under. Very warm, well made and a quality garment. For some it may run large. For me, the XL is perfect. I'm 5'9" and 155 lbs, long arms and broad shoulders. I size to the XL in order to get desired sleeve length and to layer under. I could wear L, but just a little too confining for me. Perfect in the XL.

Yes, I have three of these and would have more, if I needed more. It is soft, washes wonderfully and really is made for the tall gal. Great long sleeves, wide through shoulders, total comfort....and WARM. I'm 5'9" tall, 155 lbs, broad shoulders and long arms.....so when I find something that fits, I hog it up. Quality-wise, one cannot go wrong. Runs maybe just a tad large, but allow for laundering, which always changes fit.

This sweater will take your breath away, it is so beautiful and stunning and makes a definite statement. Part Merino wool material is soft yet stays in shape. The neckline is reinforced to help prevent stretching.. The sleeves are adequately long for this 5'9" woman with wide shoulders and long arms. The option is given to hand wash OR dry clean. As for me, I will opt for dry cleaning when that time comes. I did not get to use it this season; however, next season Apres Ski is the name of the game in this smashing Regal Blue Sweater..

Truly a beautiful, well-made vest. The new sheen material is nothing but classy. The lines of the definition sewing are incredible, emphasizing the waist. For me, it couldn't be more perfect. I wear an XL top in all clothing brands, and the XL in this is perfect for this 5'9.5" -157 lb senior lass. Based on some of the feedback, I have to admit I vacillated a bit on the size, and decided to go with what I normally wear, and to allow for layering. Definitely the right decision. The benchmark NF construction and quality is there and I look forward to some fun wearing as we transition from winter to spring and then summer. A nice lemon yellow fleece under the Fanfare Green---uber flashy and beautiful. Shipped fast, but got hung up in winter storm in Louisville and still only a day late. UPS came through.

I was pleasantly surprised with this sock. The description on this site is woefully lacking, (would you believe none) but I took a chance, figuring if it did not meet my criteria, it would be returned. BC---you need a good description of this product. It has a thicker sole to add cushion, and the toe is also reinforced thicker, yet it is cotton so lets the foot breathe. Very pleased, excellent sock for summer---I ordered two pairs and love them.

This order is for a Christmas gift. Yes, I do shop ahead. My daughter and I both have one of these and like them so well, she's getting another for Christmas. They're soft, wash and dry looking like new, and are more windproof or warmer than the Denali, which we both love. Can't say enough about the Osito...all good. And I appreciate finding it at Backcountry in XXL. As manufacturers have dumbed-down their sizing, it forces some us more stout, tall and long-armed ladies to move up a size. The XL suddenly became just a bit tight. It is very hard to find these sporting clothes in XXL. Guess either retailers or manufacturers don't think all sizes of people wear clothes and do exercise.

While I have not used this goggle on the slope, because I purchased for next season, it is everything I wanted. It fits superbly with my Giro Sheer helmet, and it is the dark lens that I wanted for those "bluebird" days. The lens quality was a definite deciding factor that led to the purchase of this goggle. I look forward to giving it a few turns next season. Very pleased.
