Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use headphones everyday- at the gym, walking around town, running in the park, etc. This is my first pair of Bluetooth earbuds and I don't know how I managed all this time without them! They have seriously transformed the way I workout.

Pros:
-Wireless: I do a lot of mat workouts at the gym, following along routines with YouTube videos. Not having my headphones connected to my phone is a huge advantage. I'm able to watch the videos and still do the moves without having to replace my phone in a different position each time.
-Fit: These buds are super lightweight and the ear gels are smaller, making them more ideal for our lady ears. I run with them all the time and they rarely fall out.
- Sound: These things bump!

Cons:
-Battery Life: I'm not too stoked on the battery life of these guys. I say for every 4 hours you use them they need a recharge. You have to pay attention to when they need recharging too, they don't give you much warning. There is nothing worse than being in the middle of a workout and having your headphones die!

Invest in a nice pair of bluetooth buds, I promise you won't regret it. The way these have transformed my workouts has been so great. Not having to always be connected to your phone is super nice.

Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 7"
Weight: 130 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I've been riding these pants all season and for the most part they are pretty legit. I'm 5'7" and 130, carrying the majority of my weight in my lower half. The problem I usually have with pants is that they are tight in the thighs and loose around the waist. I have these in a Medium and they've worked out great.

Pros:
- Gore-Tex! Huge priority for me since I'm fairly hard on gear. I've never had a problem with these staying dry.
- Shell: The pants are a 2L shell, perfect for spring snowboarding but easy to layer underneath for cooler days too.
- Vents: There are two vents on the internal thighs that don't have mesh (which I prefer), making them nice and breathable.
- Elevator Cuffs: The back of the pant has an adjustable strap that is easy to pull and will lift the pant up at the bottom, lifting it off the ground. This is nice for walking in the parking lot so you don't get the bottom of your pants dirty.
-Internal Adjustability: There are velcro tabs on the interior of the pants that you can adjust to fit to your waist.

Cons-
-Lacking Stretch: I tour a lot in the backcountry and prefer a bit of a stretch in my pants which these don't have too much of.
-Pockets: These pants only have two pockets in the front.

Ultimately, these pants are pretty rad. Built for the elements and have held up great. Give me a little more stretch and some more pocket options and they'd get 5 stars!

I've been lucky enough to try most of the ladies Burton bindings and these take the cake! Keep in mind, the majority of riding that I do is big mountain, so I prefer a stiffer binding. Here are some of the benefits of the Escapade:

1. Hammock strap: This is some cutting edge technology in the snowboard industry. You don't have to worry about accidentally stepping on your strap wrong or bending it back too far so it snaps. Burton basically takes plastic and stretches it multiple times so the strap is so flexible it won't snap. Straps are one of the things you mess with the most as a snowboarder, so having a reliable one is huge!

2. Hammock highback: the hammock highback is a really comfortable design. It is made to absorb the shock of impact and also gives you the ability to tighten your binding according to personal preference.

3. EST: If you've never experienced the EST system, try it and don't be afraid! It tends to be a little intimidating at first, but it actually cuts down on weight by eliminating discs and allows you to ride the board the way it is meant to be ridden. It also lets you perfect your board width and angles down to the very degree. I admit, at first I was hesitant to take the EST plunge. Once you do you won't go back!

I recommend these bindings to any lady shredder! Even if you're not on a Burton board, riding these on Re:Flex will give you more response and let you feel how the board was built to be ridden.

These socks are more on the cushy side. I tend to prefer compression socks or a wool blend but was pleasantly surprised by these. I wore them all day shredding in 20 degree weather and they did just great.

I'd recommend these for your everyday snowboarding sock. They are super cozy and cute. For splitboarding days I probably wouldn't use these and instead would go with something a little less cushioned and more compression. That may be a personal preference though!

Overall these socks did great!

I use this as my daily work bag and it is the perfect size. Usually I juggle multiple bags, but this one is able to fit my computer, charger, files, lunch and then some.

There is a separate external zipper sleeve built of a laptop. I have a 15" Macbook and it fits it with a cover, so I would bet it would fit a 17"+ with a cover too. It's nice having a separate laptop sleeve so it stays safe.

There are four accessory pockets on the exterior of the backpack, one in the middle, two on the sides, and one on top. Perfect sizes for a beer (just sayin') or pencils, phones, etc.

The main pack has a burly zipper that zips all the way down one side making it easy to get anything into. There also is a small mesh pocket with a separate zipper internally where you can keep things you like to have easy access too.

This pack has a great pocket situation and is large enough that you can take a days worth of goods in it to work. It's also super nice for traveling.

When I purchased this sweater I didn't realize how long it was! It is a chunky knit for sure, but it's adorable! I purchased a medium and it is a bit oversized, you can probably size down here. Luckily, half my closet is oversized and I really don't mind it so I'll rock a medium.

The canvas heather is a beautiful color. It's great to style with shorts, leggings, or wear as a layer on cooler nights. It is extremely warm!! The best part about this sweater is the location of the pockets. There are two pockets in the front that are perfect for carrying your phone or keys and are burly enough that they won't weigh you down.

I'm one of those people who leaves the house early, packs lunch, hits the gym, heads to work, runs errands in between and gets home around dinner. Needless to say, I need a big bag each day.

I used to carry everything in a bunch of little bags until I purchased this tote. And let me tell you, it is so much more convenient carrying everything together! I no longer have to juggle bags around and hope I didn't forget anything, instead everything is in one place.

The bag is super burley and well-made with internal pockets that keep smaller things like keys, headphones or snacks in place and easy to access. The top fully zips so if you throw it around nothing will fall out.

I honestly can't believe I tried to juggle multiple bags before when I should have just invested in one big tote originally. If you carry a days worth of stuff with you all the time, this bag is made for you!

I obsessed with this shirt and wear it year round. It’s one of my go-to pieces that I know will always look good dressed up or down.

The fabric has a really nice hand feel and thickness is perfect. Heavy enough that you can still wear a colored bra underneath without showing, but not so heavy that it’s too much for hot days.

I’m 5’7” and 130 lbs and a medium works perfect with plenty of length in the torso. If you are tall with narrow shoulders I would recommend sizing down to a small.

Make sure you care for the garment. I recommend hang drying it. I accidently dried it once and it is fine, but it seems like it would take a toll on the fabric drying it each time.

I’m always hesitant when it comes to pants this style, but I was surprisingly impressed by these!

I carry the majority of my weight in my lower half so the thought of putting a pattern on pants terrified me. I tried these on in succulent camo and loved them. The green is dark enough and the flowers are placed on the pants to give them a flattering look. I’m 5’7” and 130 lbs and the medium fits great. They mediums fit more like a cropped pant than is shown on the model in the picture, but it still works.

They have been my go-to pants for warm nights and running around town when I want to be comfortable but still look styli. They also look good with sandals or boots.

After wearing them a couple times without washing them the definitely loosen up. After a wash and dry they take their shape great again.

If you’re as freaked out with pant patterns as I am, try these! I promise you will like them and the pocket situation is legit!

I purchased this shirt for myself to wear as a baggy fall layer but ended up returning it. I know it is a guys shirt, but often times I prefer ordering them in smaller sizes for warm camping and lounging layers.

Ultimately, I returned this because I wasn't a fan of the color. It is pictured a lot brighter than it really is. In the stock photos, yellow and blue seem to pop a lot more when really the grays and browns are the dominate colors.

That being said, this shirt is super soft and has a nice sleeve detail allowing you to roll up and button the sleeves securely.

First off, everyone needs a good flannel. I purchased this for myself to use as a casual, warm fall layer that I can take camping, hiking, backpacking, etc. The small is a great fit for what I was looking for- a baggier, warm layer.

When I received it, I noticed that the fabric is extremely soft and not crunchy right out of the packaging. I'm sure it will only get softer with some washing!

My favorite feature of this shirt is the button detail on the sleeves that allows you to roll them up and secure them. Since this is a baggy, over sized shirt on me, having this option is really nice.

I can't speak to the true sizing of this shirt for a guy, but I definitely recommend it for the ladies who like to layer.

I gave these to my boyfriend as a gift and they may be some of the most attractive socks I've seen. I like the sleek look with the pop of color at the top. They are also a really good height to pair with sneakers for casual wear. They mix style and function perfectly.

I've heard everyone raving about how Darn Tough are the best socks but have never owned any myself. After seeing these be put through lots of activity, I'm convinced they may be. These are perfect for casual wear, biking and running.

I purchased this as a gift for my nephew-to-be. He hasn't arrived yet, so my experience with the product is purely first impressions.

This is the softest little bear onesie, well-made, and adorable. The best feature of this product is the fleece flaps on the feet and hand holes that can be wrapped over the hands and feet to keep them toasty warm.

I can't wait to see a little baby in this snugly outfit. If they made one in my size I would probably own it, it might be the softest thing I have ever felt!

Super cute, a little less supportive.

I normally purchase traditional racer-back sports bras with thicker straps but wanted to try out a strappy style since there are so many adorable ones on the market right now. This bra is extremely comfortable, but with the thinner straps you do sacrifice some support.

I'm not too busty, normally wearing a 34C. I ordered this bra in a medium which is what I usually wear and it is a little larger than I would like, the small likely would have provided more support for this style. I would recommend sizing down in this style so you are still getting the full support from the bra.

I've worn it hiking and it certainly did the job, though I would hesitate to run or do any sort of extreme workout in it. This piece is great for low impact activity, lounging, or wearing as a fun detail piece with low-back shirts.

I've washed and dried it multiple times and it has kept its shape and color perfectly.

I gave this to my dad as a birthday present and he absolutely loves it! He was wearing an old-school dated helmet and was overdue for an upgrade!

His head measures at 60 cm and the Large fits him perfect with room for adjustment if needed. He rocks this helmet around town commuting and occasionally on the mountain trails.

I purchased the blue so he can be seen from a distance and the color is very attractive, it is more matte than shiny.

These are awesome all around shorts for hiking, running, you name it! The material is breathable and they're extremely comfortable.

I was afraid they might be too short, but the length is perfect- not too long, not too short. The band across the top is not stretchy, instead these shorts rely on the drawstring to stay up.

The sizing is a bit odd on these, with smaller hips and the majority of my weight in my legs/booty, the medium is a little looser around the hips than I prefer but fits great around the legs. If sizing to a small, likely the hips would fit better but the legs would be a little tight.

Overall, these shorts are pretty great and look nice.
