These are my favorite SmartWool socks. With some longer trips coming up this summer, I decided I needed an extra pair. The wool construction really does make a difference when it comes to keeping your feet hot on cold days and cool on hot days. The cushioning doesn't feel bulky but makes a difference when you're logging mile after mile. Definitely recommend.

I was given a high neck workout top and needed a sports bra to wear with it. Not only did this bra have the silhouette I needed, but it's also super cute. Plus, it's more supportive than I expected. The strappy back and bright pattern make it easy to wear it on its own during yoga classes and it layers well under tanks. Definitely recommend.

This is such a handy tool to bring on adventures. Since I rely on my phone to document most of my travels, it's nice to have a backup when the juice starts to run low. I love how fast it charges and that I can get multiple recharges out of it before it's time to plug it back in.

Size Purchased: 7

I've been hesitant to purchase new hiking boots because I've always hated how heavy and clompy my boots have been in the past. But after talking with a couple of Backcountry employees, I decided to give the Renegades a chance--and I love them!

Feel: They're super lightweight and don't feel clompy at all. They're ready to wear right out of the box (I hiked 20 miles the first time I wore them and didn't have any problems). The fit is snug, comfortable , and true to size. A high ankle offers plenty of support for long days carrying heavy loads.

Performance: I wore these shoes on the Mist Trail during peak runoff and while my friend's feet got wet, mine stayed dry and comfortable thanks to the Gore-Tex liner. The Vibram sole also made a huge difference on the slick trail.

I have a Thule T2 Classic bike rack which suits my day-to-day needs, but once in a while, I need to accommodate more bikes and this add on is a logical choice. It has all of the features of the original rack and is easy to take on and off. It's extremely easy to load and unload bikes, plus the price is great!

This duffle is my go-to for everything. I've hauled it around the world--from the cold of the Tetons to the jungles of Thailand. It's strong, durable, and protects your stuff wherever you go. It's a perfect size for a carry-on bag, and offers plenty of room for gear, clothes, and other essentials (it carried everything I needed for 2 1/2 weeks in Thailand). There aren't a ton of storage and organization compartments, but if you're looking for something simple and reliable, this is your bag. Verdict: buy!

I gave this bag as a gift and this is what my friend has to say:

I had at least three requirements when it was time to replace my daily work bag. The bag had to be durable, fit everything for a day and a half of work, and be easy to get in and out of while stashed under an airline seat. Decent looks were a bonus. This bag nails all three and looks great while doing it. I'm pretty picky about durability and build quality and it's a winner on both accounts. The padded laptop section fits a 13-inch laptop with room to spare and takes up next to no space in the main compartment. Easy to reach zipper pulls accent the large high-quality zippers, and make getting in and out of the bag a breeze. Would recommend to anyone.

I really love skiing, but my hands are always painfully cold. I've tried mittens with liners, down gloves, hand warmer packs, and anything else I could think of. Nothing seemed to work. So, I finally bit the bullet and forked out the money to give these gloves a try. I instantly fell in love with these gloves. They kept my hands warm all day. I got a size small and they were still a little big, but worth it for a comfortable day on the slopes.

I have wanted these boots for years, but was never willing to pay the price. This year was the year and I was not disappointed. We received 15” of snow on Christmas morning and the warmth of these boots was perfect to trek around to family throughout the day. The fit was a bit tight getting my foot into the boot because of high arches, but loosening the laces and working my foot in and out of the boot all day I could tell it was relaxing a bit. Once my foot was in the boot it was a great fit, not sloppy which I was afraid of. I wear a size 8 to 8 1/2, purchased the boot in size 8 and they were just right. Can’t wait to strap on the snow shoes!

I got these as a gift for my mom and this is what she had to say: These jeans were a Christmas gift and I was nervous of the fit without trying them on first. I am 5’ 7” and usually wear a size 10 in pants; these were a 29 regular and fit like a dream. They fit perfectly! Always a little snug in the beginning, but wearing them throughout the day they conform to the perfect jean! I love the dark color with a hint of weathering. The length perfectly rests at the top of my foot and looks great with my boots. Love them!

Excellent binding for the money. I feel confident that these bindings will hold me firm to the skis at high speeds and aggressive skiing, but will release me when I need them to. Easy to get into and quick and simple to get out of these binding when your ready.

These are excellent all mountain ski’s. I had a chance to use them on a day of with various conditions. They floated nice in the power and crud and turned easy in the trees. They were fast on the groomed runs and initiated the turns easily. I had to work a little bit more to complete the turns than I did on my old “thinner” skis, but considering that they are quite a bit wider, it wasn’t a big deal. I would recommend these skis to anyone that is looking for a good all round ski where you are skiing power one day and groomers the next.
