I love my new Smith sunglasses. They have a great classic look that I wear out and about as well as on the trails. I love them for exercising because they have rubber on the arms of the glasses so they don't fall off my head. Definitely recommend going polarized too. I have never had a bad experience with any of Smith's eyewear whether it will be goggles or glasses.

Fit: True to size

Just bought these running shoes to replace an old pair of new balances. These are so much lighter and I feel like I can run for ages. They provide great stability on the trails and are super comfortable on my feet. I have had issues in the past with my heels, but my heels are fully protected in these shoes and I have not had any issues with getting blisters. Definitely recommend for other trail runners out there.

I am obsessed with these Chaco boots. I ordered these because in the summer time I live in my Chaco sandals, so I figured the boots would be perfect to continue the Chaco wearing all year long. I really needed a comfortable boot that I could walk to school in everyday, get good support out of, and not get any blisters. These boots do all of that! They are so comfortable and offer great foot support. They look great folded and unfolded. Definitely recommend

I have had this watch for 2 years now and have had to warranty it once already. The first watch I purchased froze several times for hours on end, would erase my info in the middle of runs, and had a very bad battery life. When I talked to Garmin the guess was that I just received a 'lemon.' I warrantied it and got a new one that has been working much better. I have had no problems with this one working now or randomly erasing my data, but one thing I will say is that the GPS takes ages to load. Once it loads and finds my location it is great, but to get to that point can take several minutes. It's great for the basic uses I need it for, but it is not the most sophisticated, durable watch out there

Great set for getting out into the backcountry! I previously owned an ortovox beacon, but I think I prefer the pieps. I've been practicing with its use on beacon bags hidden around my home resort. Hopefully I will never have to, but if I do have to use it I feel comfortable with the beacon.
The black diamond shovel and probe are great as well. Easy to put together and break back down. Definitely feel ready for anything in the backcountry with this set up!

I am in love with my new birks. They are so comfortable and look so cute! The loop around the toe is a great addition. Wear them everywhere all the time. They are a very supportive shoe and are great for all uses! I usually wear a 8/8.5 in US sizes and purchased the size 39 in the euro sizes.

I love this tshirt! The material is super soft and comfortable. It looks super cute with jeans and leggings, and I purchased the size L because I like my shirts slightly larger. Its long enough to cover my butt (which I prefer for wearing shirts with leggings). Awesome buy!

I use these headphones for commuting, school, and hanging out. The sound quality is awesome! Super loud and clear. They look really good too. Connect super easily to my phone and laptop. Definitely recommend these headphones and other outdoor technology products. Have yet to let me down

This growler is HUGE! Perfect for storing beer, keeps it really cold. I've used it around the town as well as on camping trips in the outdoors. Keeps your drink fresh and ice cold for the whole day. It's easy to clean, in great shape, and plan on using it for a very long time

These Atomic bindings not only work great, but look sharp on my Atomic Elysian skis (Item: ATO000D). Getting in and out of them has been very smooth! I patrol up at Brighton resort where I am constantly having to get in and out of skis, and I have no issues getting into these bindings super quick. My boots feel very secure in them and I have managed to stay in the bindings (even through some falls). Great, trustworthy, solid alpine binding!

Greatest All Mountain Ski!

These skis are badass! I have always been a big fan of Atomic, and these skis have only increased my loyalty to them. They shred through EVERYTHING, pow, crud, ice. I'm 5'5 and ride the 168 and I have never had so much fun on a pair of skis. They are a solid all mountain buy.

I've mounted them up with the Atomic STH2 13 WTR Ski Binding (Item: ATO001D) and this set up has been super light weight. The all mountain rocker has proven to be a lot of fun. The skis handle great in the soft stuff, blast through moguls, and are super fun to take in the trees. Super easy to turn and very responsive.

I would recommend these skis to any ladies looking to get out there, improve their riding, and dominate the mountain.

I use these skins with my Armada VJJ's and they have been awesome for climbing. They make the uphill a smooth travel and grab on everything, haven't been sliding at all. They are very easy to clip on to your ski and I haven't had any issues with them not sticking properly. Also quick and easy to set up and store.

The tool that Black Diamond gives you isn't the greatest for trimming. I used the G3 Trim tool which worked amazingly. Awesome skin that I would definitely recommend for anyone getting into the backcountry!
