I have two different colors of Prana's Broderick Slim short sleeve shirt because I like it so much. It is super versatile - wear it to a bbq or the office, or even for a night out on the town. I like the "slim" fit because it is trim without being too tight - at 6'2" 180lbs, I can wear large or medium; however, I prefer the Medium's fit, as there is less fabric around the torso.

Icebreaker's tech lite Merino Wool t-shirt is great for just about anything - from wearing as a baselayer for skiing, a performance T for biking/running or just wearing around as a normal t-shirt, I like how the graphic gives it a little extra visual appeal!

I just got my third Icebreaker Sphere short sleeve crew shirt - my first two are doing great, but I wanted another color since I wear them so much. They are great for wearing as a everyday t-shirt, a performance shirt for running/biking/working out, and as a baselayer for skiing. The fabric is soft, antimicrobial and stays cool due to the tencel blend - this is not a "hot" or "itchy" wool shirt. It runs true to size and I can highly recommend it.

I am very impressed with the Exped Synmat HL Lite sleeping pad so far. Unlike a bunch of sleeping pads I've had in years past, this one is the perfect blend between weight, durability and comfort. I bought it for a hut trip in January and was super impressed with it while sleeping on a very cold, hard floor (with 3 broken ribs) - it over-delivered for me and I would highly recommend it! Also, it's important to note that this is a large (long and wide) sleeping pad, which was great for me since I'm 6'2".

Whether it's a commuter bike or a mountain bike, this is the bell to have. Period. It is good looking, well built, and most importantly it rings loud with a great tone. Save yourself from pedestrians who don't look both ways and/or from getting in a head-on accident when riding around a corner on the trail with this bell.

I got these RVCA Montague Swim Trunks for a trip to Mexico in February. They made be my new favorite swim trunks/board shorts because they fit so well, are made of a nice soft fabric and don't have an internal liner brief. Full disclosure, I have a number of Baggies from Patagonia and I love them, but these are a great change of pace and the fit/feel is great.

I got two colors of the Patagonia Go-To Men's button-down shirt prior to a trip to Mexico in February. I am very happy with how it fit and felt in the warm, humid climate - they were both perfect. From wearing them at night for dinner, or to the beach during the day, I was so happy I had two colors to rotate through. I like the slim fit of this shirt, as it makes it less baggy without being too tight. I got a large and they fit well, although I think I could have fit into a medium if I wanted a much more "trim" fit.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I got the Pons Avarcas Classic Sandal for my girlfriend last week before our trip to Mexico. Bottom line is that she loves them - they fit true to size and required no break-in - I gave them to her when we arrived in MX and she wore them out that night. Personally, I really like how they look and they appear to be well-made and will stand the test of time.

I got The North Face Thermoball mule booties a few weeks ago as I was looking for something I could use for hut trips as well as in everyday life - I am really pleased with them so far. They were great for the hut last weekend (Peter Grubb Hut, CA) since they have rubber soles - yes, that adds to their weight, but made it nice when I needed to make the trek outside in the snow. Around the house, they are great too - very comfortable, and since they have the rubber sole, they are great if you need to go out and check the mail or something like that. Fit is true to size

My new Blundstone Original 500s just keep getting better and better every time I wear them. They were crucial in the recent snow and slop here in Park City - perfect for before and after skiing, and equally well-suited for meetings at the office. I wear a Nike size 12 and got these in US11.5 which seems to be just the right amount of snugness.

Smartwool's 150 baselayer bottoms are the bar all others are measured against and that's for good reason. They deliver every time - keeping you warm, comfortable and the anti-odor that wool naturally has is an added bonus!
