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

I just got these for my girlfriend and they are a really cool ski! The profile is a rockered tip, camber under foot, and a very slightly rockered tail. The rockered tip helps a ton with soft snow performance, giving you the "water ski" effect and planeing you on top of the snow for easy manuverablility. The camber underfoot allows for strong turns and hard snow performance. The slight rocker in the tail gives you more manuverablility and control, and helps with soft snow performance. Fischer also put a notch in the tail to hold a skin clip, if you are going to use these skis for backcountry travel this is a great feature so that your tail clip never fails, and centers really easily. I like the 98mm waist on these skis it makes them very versitile all mountain, allowing you to ski hard snow and deep snow making a one ski quiver. I'd recommend this ski to any woman who is looking for a stiffer all mountain ski that will help them push their skiing ability to the next level.

This is a great ski jacket for the resort, it is insulated so you don't have to worry about stocking up on layers before you head to the hill. With underarm venting you don't have to worry about over heating either, the cut of this coat is great too, I love that it has a lower hem line in the back so you can sit on the jacket going up the chairlift and can avoid a cold bum. I'd recommend this jacket to any female who is looking to stay warm and dry in a resort setting!

This is a fantastic option for any woman looking to push their abilities in the backcountry. Salomon designed this boot to be lightweight, have a large range of motion, and comfortable for the uphill. In contrast for the downhilll aspect this boot is nothing but amazing. Being a "90" flex it's a perfect all around stiffness for a female skiier, weather you're strictly on soft snow, running these boots inbounds on corduroy, or skiing spring time corn, this boot will perform great through all those conditions. Originally this boot was based off of the men's version that did extremely well in all the magazine tests, the only changes they made to this one is the flex rating, color changes, and they gave you a little thicker liner for a more comfortable feel. I'd recommend this boot to any woman looking for a great alpine touring boot that they can also use inbounds.

I just got this rain jacket for my girlfriend due to the crazy rainy weather recently. It's a great lightweight constructions and packs down nice and small, perfect for hikes and around the town. I love the way it fits her, she wears a small in all other Patagonia, I got her a small and this one definitley fits true to size. I'd recommend this jacket to anyone looking for a bomber rain jacket without much bulk, and a stylish look.

This is a great travel towel, it will pack down nice and small and has a great moisture wicking property. The micro fiber construction can pull and hold a lot of moisture and will dry quickly which makes it perfect for any occasion.

I just got this for my girlfriend who is spending a couple months in Costa Rica. This will be her day pack, it is perfect for it because there is a hydration reservoir, plenty of storage space, and tons of ventilation. Her favorite part of the pack is the suspension system. The AG (anti gravity) system literally hugs your body, you hardly feel like you are wearing anything. Not to mention it is made completely of mesh so it breathes really well for hot day hikes. This is the perfect day hiker pack, and everyone should own it!

I just got this for my girlfriend for our trip to California. She really loves the fabric, it's soft and feels great against her skin. The only thing that she didn't like about it was how little coverage it has, but it doesn't seem to be an issue cause she kept it. She definitley recommends this piece.

This is a solid binding for all mountain performance. The toe has giant wings so I have no fear of popping out early when I'm railing turns on a groomer, and the heel peice has one of the widest mounting patterns on the market so you can ensure great power transfer will occur. I really enjoyed the rubber pads underneath the binding, you can really notice a shock absorbtion when you hit a flat landing. This binding is also compatible with WTR soles with only a simply toe height adjustment.
I'd recommend this binding to anyone who is looking for a hard charging binding, with an easy step in heel.

Fit: Runs large

I just got this for my girlfriend's birthday and she loves it. It is super soft, has a very flowy style and is really cute.
It does run about a full size large, she is typically a small on top and the XS is still just a little baggy. I loved the color of the blue they used on top!

Pair this pant with a Sabre jacket and you have an awesome resort shredding combo. I love the 3 layer Gore-tex construction of these pants it insures that you stay dry and don't get clammy. The vents on the thighs are great to dump serious heat when you get to the bottom of your line. Arc'teryx used a strong Cordura nylon on the inner ankle so you don't slice your pants with your skis.
I'd recommed this pant to anyone looking to ski the resort mostly and maybe get into the backcountry a little bit.

This down puffy is the real deal, the thorium line from Arc'teryx is their warmest down jacket series. Being the AR model it means that this is the best jacket for all around use.
Wearing this around the town it will keep you warm, and on the mountian it will do the same. I love how big he hood is, you can put it right over a helmet if you need to, and the very high collar provides some protection from the elements for your face.
I'd recommend this jacket to anyone looking for a really warm, comfy, jacket that can be used for a variety of activities.

This is such an awesome board, it's super surfy and really fun to just goof around on the mountain. I got the longer version so that I could surf that deep pow easier. I love ripping this thing for it's loose feel, no being strapped in is an adventure too, so be on your toes and hold onto that leash. I love this thing!

I love these vans, they have a classic style and are super comfy. You can't go wrong with these ones, they will last quite a while and are a great value for the price. Love em!
