Moved to Utah..for the Snow! duh!! he he Lived in many great towns, had some really awesome jobs, hung with some incredible people and always looking forward to the next adventure...as well as to all seasons.. although...always praying for sick ski season! I love to be outside...whether I'm really getting after it or just out with the dogs...fresh air and adventure is what I crave! !!! When I'm not outside playing...I'm most likely working or sleeping. Yoga, SUPing,dancing , ice skating, live music , good friends , good food, and lots of laughter are just a few of my other favorite things.
Get Outside! :) Be Green!

I do love Club Rides approach to riding clothes. This shirt is so breathable and soft. It's very comfortable to wear with or without a pack, as it does not ride up..I wear xs in most tops, and in this an XS is maybe a little larger than most xs in other brands , but a great fit still.
Knot something I go without. I am on round two of these, not because they wear out, well after about 5 years they fade some ..haha that's all. I just wanted to get my two dogs new colors! Both my dogs are medium sized, and a M in these, I think I have measured them before but there is room in the M to go bigger or smaller and both are in the 55-65 lb. range. I love the ease of clipping a leash, the look of them , and overall fit and what seems to be comfortable for my
My boyfriend needed something like this so bad. These fit the bill more than I could have asked for. Comfort and quality. Sizing is true I'd say. He is usually an 8.5-9.0 and went with 9.0 and they are perfect. I'm so happy I got these for him, happy feet, happy life , wait, heehe, , that's not it , but it works here too !
XS ordered, xs Loved! Fit is great, I have a hard time with getting things to fit right..I'm 5'1" and 100lbs. , and this is awesome, a little room in the waist but not enough that they fit large..the length of the back is sweet too, just a little longer, for comfort and style, I like it, it's not catching on the seat either!! Huge plus. I really like riding in a "skirt" , with a thick chamois underneath, they're just so comfortable. Yay! Plus I mountain bike in Moab also and it's fun to be "dressed up" :0) !
I just love the way Giro gloves fit. They are super comfy with a great overall fit. I order L. My hand is not super big, but in gloves , it just seems they run small to me always..my hand measures about 7.5-8" ..L is perfect in Giro in gloves. Colors are fun, padding is fun too :) ..
I have owned La Sportiva running shoes before and have gotten a size 5.5 which I usually am, in most brands, but in these I went with a 37.0 = 6.0 and they fit great, a little room in the toe for the descent..lightweight with good traction. My foot is small , with a high arch and wide toe box..and these hug my foot in a great way.
These are the words of a friend of mine who I gifted these to. Fishing, rafting, hiking etc..these shoes are worn and said to be the most comfy! Sizing is about a half size too small, but the fit in the end is perfect. Size 9 is worn mostly, so in these a 9.5 was bought, and the fit is right on. Solid construction , 2 cords and a sole. Tread on the sole is bomber too. Keen always comes through for fit and comfort. I was convinced by my friend who owns these to try some, I got the womens Uneek slide..and yes, IN LOve!
I am in Love! I have always loved Keen's fit and comfort, but these have taken things to a different level. The sizing is about right..I'm usually a 5.5 . I got these in a 6, and they are perfect. Very comfy, great tread on the sole and the quality that is that of Keen, which is very high! Love the colors and all around design..I'm a fan of easy to slide into shoes, and these I will be getting another color in! Love Love Love!
Super comfy, thin and breathable. Sharp looking design, love the colors. I ordered the grey/white ones in a s/m, they are ever so slightly big on me, but that can be typical as my shoe size is a 5-5.5.
Just like I was suspecting, these thongs are super comfy. True to size and with a 3 pack, it's a great way to multiply the underwear draw quite quickly. Great quality and quantity :).
Thin profile, built to last, does the job. Super simple, just the way we like it !
MIPS protection is a great thing. That added support cannot be beat. Very comfy helmet. I went with a M, I was right on the cusp of sizing and tried both S and M on...the M won . Colors are fun, fit is great, Giro helmets are made very well too, design, materials..etc... Big Fan!
Super comfy, stiff enough and true to size. I wear a 5.5-6.0 in most shoes, got these in a 5.5 and bam, perfect. Way comfy..paired with the Chester Race Face pedals, solid combo. Sticky with a good grip. Love them, no wonder everyone has these!!!
Lightweight, wide, super grippy and fun colors! I've been clipless for 25 Years , and these are my first flat pedals and they're awesome! First ride on them I took them on Ahab in Moab , first things first right..and so stoked on how grippy they are . The pegs are long enough to grab on to the bottom of the shoe, you can "claw" your way up and over everything! Love em!
Super good fit, does not slide around or down ..more of a tighter fit too. The pompom on top is super cute, the colors are great and it has a soft inside. Not itchy at all. I may need more colors to add to my arsenal :) !
I wanted this hat to work out for me, but unfortunately it did not. I gifted it to a friend who has a lot more hair than me and looks cute wearing a slouchy hat. It just wasn't the style that works on me personally. The hat though is super soft! It's made really well and comes in really sweet colors. Have thicker hair or just like the slouch look more than me.. :)
So soft and so warm. Comfy socks with some cushioning, medium cushion , medium weight. These socks I love wearing when I resort ski for a more better fit with my boots and warmth overall, when I ski tour I tend to wear my lighterweight socks. The pattern is pretty, and they stay up , breathe well and overall a must have :) .
These run super small, I wear a 5.5 street shoe and tried these in a 6.5 and my feet could barely get into these let alone relax and be happy. I wanted to love these, but the size is so off..they do seem as though they would be an excellent aggressive shoe. I may try another size to dial this in. I do like the overall design, where the velcro tabs are . I had to return these :(
Bought as a gift but I have feedback. The size is true. Bought an 8.5 for my boyfriend who wears an 8.5 typically in all shoes. He loves these. Says they are super comfy and the mid height is very supportive. The generous toe box room is a plus for keeping toes happy on the descent. They are also holding up very well so far. Hiking and trail running, these are proving to be his favorite shoes ever!
