I picked this up as a gift for a friend. Nice classic look, and the fit is very flattering. Great to wear this out on its own or under another jacket for warmth,, but it's also so comfortable I often throw it on in the morning to wear around the house. Perfect addition to any wardrobe and great crossover for fall, winter, and spring in the East. A real favorite!

These Haglofs Touring LIM's have tons of stretch to them which offers an extremely comfortable pant for touring. The fit is definitely slim and not standard by any means. Considering how thin the material is, I'm surprised at how warm the pant is. The extra zipper venting is definitely needed and well deserved for the uphill. I don't expect extreme durability with these as they are softshell fabric. But then again these are not a resort skiing pant.

This worked great to lube a waterproof zip on a Norrona jacket. I'm sure it will do very well on tent zippers as well. The dispensing system is great and the brush gets it clean beforehand.

These boots are the best of both worlds, extremely nice looking, yet durable enough to wear all day out in the elements. They are also comfortable and easy to get on and off while traveling with the convenient side zipper. A winter must for those who like to stay fashionable while still warm and dry. Tested in all conditions, including during a severe storm, and they hold up really well. I would have given five stars but a few threads needed to be trimmed and the zipper needed lubrication out of the box.

This dress is very adaptable for both leisure activities and work when you want to be warm, look stylish, and still be comfortable. It can be dressed up with a nice pair of boots and more sporty with a pair of sneakers. Good length and true to size, a definite go to during cold winter months.

Form fitting and nice looking, but very comfortable. It's perfect to wear under heavier jackets or as a light sweatshirt/jacket on it's own, and it looks equally good fully zipped up or unzipped partially or completely. Adaptable for east coast spring through winter. I have the blue version, and the color is brighter and even more attractive than it appears online. A favorite and staple to add to any wardrobe.

These boots feel extremely comfortable and very supportive.. The gaiter really seals in warmth and keeps the snow from getting into the boot. . The ratchet and hook/loop strap over the forefoot secure your foot down and eliminates heel lift that I"ve experienced with other NNN BC boots. Overall a well thought out boot by Madshus.

These are my go to socks with all seasons except summer. Not too heavy or thick, yet warm and work with a variety of footwear. They are just so comfortable and cute. As soon as they come out of the laundry, I put them on again. Something about the design and feel that make them irresistible.

The cat eye frame makes these sunglasses really stand out in a subtle yet captivating way. Comfortable and light on the face to wear while driving or during a variety of outside activities. Very good at reducing glare. Perfect twist on a more classic style. Have received many compliments on them.

These screws work great for setting up belays or TR anchors. I would necessarily recommend these for steep, technical climbs since there's no knob to spin. But for the price they are definitely work keeping one or two on your rack for general purposes.

I had a chance to demo the Ergo and the bulge clearance is amazing on these tools.! I normally use the Quark and have been pretty happy with them for steep ice., until i used these. It definitely takes a little getting used to coming from a Quark due to the aggressive clearance. But it does make climbing steep ice even easier. I don't climb mixed terrain but I'm sure these would perform great on that too.

These are very well made and though out pants by BC. The face fabric is some of the most durable I've ever seen used on a ski pant. I could see these lasting 4-5 seasons with very heavy use. The fit is nice in the waist but just a tad loose in the lower leg. But definitely wouldn't say these are a freeride/super baggy fit overall.
