Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I'll admit: I'm a little weary of shorter shorts. They can bunch and ride up. But the Patsy Short is actually just the right length. Long enough to feel, um, full covered. But short enough to move around it and not overheat. They're kind of a light canvas-y material, which makes them feel tough to take on a hike or camping, but plenty summery enough to wear to the beach or the lake. The pockets are more aesthetic than practical but you could stick your phone or a credit card in there if necessary.

Who would have thought a ski clothing company could figure out a mountain bike short so quickly? But Flylow really has with the Carter Short. The fit and length are just right - above the knee, not tight but not too baggy. Fabric is lightweight and not suffocating when you start climbing. It doesn't come with a chamois—that inner padding that you need on a bike—so get one of those separately. Even if you don't mountain bike—these are good hiking/around town shorts, too.

I wear a button-up flannel shirt a lot during the winter, so when summer rolls around, I'm kind of sad to put those flannels away. But then I found the Dolly Shirt! It's super lightweight and airy, so you can wear it on warmer days. I've worn it to the beach with my kids, on a hike in late spring, and just around town. Super cute and versatile.

I'm always cold. Even in July. Especially in January. So I wear a down sweater around all the time. In the house. In the backcountry. On camping trips. I used to swear by Patagonia's Down Sweater, which I liked because it was packable and yet still super warm. But it didn't have a hood, which was my only complaint. I love hoods. Flylow's Betty Down fixes that issue, and it's still super lightweight and package (you can definitely fit it in your backcountry pack on a tour). They say it's water resistant, but you probably still shouldn't wear it out in a rainstorm. It might get a little soggy. It's great as midlayer under a shell on a stormy day though. Or on its own around town, any month of the year in a mountain town.

It's hard finding a pair of women's ski pants that actually fits right for athletic women. Right? Not too tight, not too baggy. Still flattering and comfortable. Not too hot or too cold. The Nina Pants are the first pair of women's ski pants I've had that I felt 100 percent confident and comfortable in. I'll wear these things to the grocery store no problem. On top of that, they're totally made for mountain conditions. Waterproof zippers. My butt never got wet sitting on cold chairlifts. And on backcountry tours, I just opened up the side vents (there's no mesh in the vents, so snow occasionally does get in there...) and I'd cool right off. I wore the yellow color which got a little dirty after a season of hard use but they're pretty easy to wash.

I was able to test this jacket last winter and I haven't stopped wearing it since. In a storm, it kept me dry and warm. It's super waterproof, basically a rain jacket for skiing. I also wore it touring in the backcountry and on lots of inbounds bootpacks and spring skiing days and I never overheated. Breathable fabric and big underarm vents, which can be hard to find in women's jackets, helped me ventilate. In the spring, I wore this with just one baselayer and I was totally set. This summer, I've been wearing it as a rain jacket. I brought it with me on a hike and while camping. Definitely recommend it as a four-season shell.
