FACT:
Apple made the texture of the iPhone6 slipprier than a *($#)$& SALMON! I call mine the SLAMMIN' SALMON.

After about a week of ownership, I realized that toting my iPhone around naked wasn't even an option. Can't even. It was a matter of moments until I destroyed that thing.

The benefit of this Recover case is that it makes the texture of the phone MUCH easier to grasp, and significantly less slippery. I have attached a photo encrusted with salmon clip art to demonstrate my point. For a fairly inexpensive case, this works.

I have noticed chipping and fading of the design, see near the logo and the bottom left corner. Not sure they did an awesome job with the design transfer. But I do LOVE the design and it makes my phone easier to grip while providing some protection.

Will this case break a fall - not sure. I'm not 100% convinced it would make a difference, but I hope to high salmon waters I don't find out.

MEH....

Grabbed these skins for a week-long trip to a backcountry ski lodge in the B.C. interior. After having used BD skins, and G3 skins, these get my 2nd place preference. (G3, BCA, and BD - is my final answer).

THE GOODS
* CUTTING: fairly easy to cut, though the directions weren't the best I've seen. G3 has a FAR superior cutting tool, so if you can get your sticky paws on one of those, certainly do it. The cutting tool included with these is identical to what you would find with BD. It works, it isn't amazing, it isn't truly awful. But when compared to the G3 cutting tool - well, this just takes quite a bit more time.

TIP & TAIL ATTACHMENT: Just fine, the tip is very secure and I never had any issues. The tail attachment is a little trickier, and I found it difficult to both attach and remove without taking my gloves off. All said and done, it's a MUCH better tail attachment than the BD skins, but I like the cam strap design on the G3 skins best of all.
That being said, this tip/tail arrangement works, I like it far better than BD's design and I never had any issues.

* GLIDE - excellent. Never had any issues with glide, these skins felt great.

* GRIP - Nothing amiss here either. I would say these perform a tiny bit better on really steep sections than my G3 skins, so the grippiness is among the best I've found for the snowpack I've encountered. (That's mostly drier, low-density, low-water content in both Utah and interior BC).

* PACKABILITY: Again, excellent. These pack down VERY small and take up far less space in my pack than my BD or G3 skins ever did. They did get fairly stiff and less packable when it was -4 out but that's pretty extreme temps - BRRRrrrrrrrrr. They were so packable I even put skins in my jacket for the first time - I could never do that with my BD or G3 skins because they were so bulky and I like a tighter fit on my touring kit.

* CON'T BELOW....

You think with a women's pro model glove, they would consider that perhaps females have more petite hands. But then again, perhaps this Leanne character has some wolf paws? Who knows!?

Admittedly I have small hands. But in the size SMALL mitt, I have an extra 1.5 inches of paw space, which seems a little excessive. This makes gripping objects and doing things that are functional all but impossible. Thus 3 stars for FIT alone.

Performance-wise, I'm really happy with these.
I took them on a week long hut trip in the Canadian wild.
It was -4 degrees F, ( -20C) BRRRRrrRRRRR for 2 of those days, and these mitts kept me warm. I never experienced wetting out, and I am and always have been a fan of the PrimaLoft insulation.

The leather portion on the palms does wet out, but that wetness never penetrated to my palms. The mittens when placed in a dry, warm spot were totally dry and ready to shred each morning. Performance wise, I really like these.
The narrow cuff is perfect for sneaking it underneath pesky, sleeve cuffs and I like how slim the wrist profile is.

Stitching details are cute without being over the top girl-barf.
Aside from the bogus sizing, these are awesome. If you have bigger paws, order your normal size, otherwise consider downsizing. Leanne - dial your sizing and you will forever be a princess in my heart.

There certainly must be a reason why this is my 4th pair of Teeki pants. Wow - that's shameful, LEXI - bad girl.
But these sat in my cart for 2 weeks before I finally lost all control and hit that beautiful little blue 'Submit Your Order' button - DAMN YOU!

Teeki pants are wonderful for several neat reasons.
* COMFY - as all get out
* FLATTERING - as can be
* MADE IN THE USA - nuff said
* MADE FROM RECYCLED BOTTLES - neatness

Because they are a synthetic material, these are NOT the most breathable pant out there, so keep that in mind. I would not be caught doing hot yoga in these things, but they work wonders for working out in normal temps, or cool weather.

The fit is great - though the legs do run on the long side. I have an average bordering on smaller than average inseam. I am 5'3" and 120 lbs and the size small is perfect save an extra inch or two of length at the bottoms. I either wear them stirrup pant style (YES, I truly AM a child of the 80s - or pull them up higher on my waist).

The wolf is so totally beautiful, stoic, yet also kind. Encouraging you to stay active and healthy.
The one and only ONE bad thing about these pants is that you see 3-4 other girls wearing them when you go to work at Backcountry.com. Which is awkward, but we all love Teeki so much, we get over it.

I had no idea when purchasing (let's get real, I had tunnel vision staring at that beautifully stoic wolf mug) that these pantaloons have SNOWFLAKES on them.

Increase fondness for these pants by a factor of 67.
SOOO STOKED. Each little flake is unique and special, just like in nature. My legs don't want to do anything but snow dances when I put these on - which is good because we're having a rough start to winter here in Utah.

This is a nice one!
I'm 5'3" and 120 lbs and I find the size small to fit just right.
I like that this down jacket doesn't make you look like a friggen cardboard box, it really has a nice shape to it.

The velcro tab cuffs are also a nice touch for cinching down on colder days. It's thin enough to layer up underneath a shell on really chilly ski days.

I also like the unique hexagonal baffles, much more visually appealing (I think) than the big old Michelin Man horizontal baffles - yuck.

I've only used this a couple times thus far, but I can already tell it's going to be a winter staple. Good fit, solid construction, functional hood and sleeves. This is one of Marmot's most popular styles, and there's a reason we sell out every year!

My roommate purchased this mat in blue, and I was so jealous, I only lasted a month before I had to go and purchase my own.

I previously ordered a cheap-O mat off Amazon, and it was insanely slippery. Yogis told me once the mat dirtied up with my own sweat, it would get sticker and break right in - that never happend - that was also 2 years ago, so I was well overdue for an upgrade.

Things I like about this mat:
-CUSHYYYYYYYYYYYYY oh, so insanely cushy. Offers excellent support and cushion for those harder moves like pidgeon and such.
- It's not slippery - thank goodness
- Comes in fun colors and the pattern is really beautiful. I get compliments on it from fellow yogis on the reg.
- Acreage - this mat is BIG! This could be a drawback in crowded classes, but I like my acreage and space.

No Drawbacks or Cons to speak of yet, but I've only used it a handful of times thus far. Will update if anything crops up.

Neat-Os

It's BUSSINESS TIME!!!
There's really no better way to annoy your girlfriend than by putting on these mildly disturbing socks...just look at that face!
------------------------------

"It's business.
It's business time.
I know what you're trying to say you're trying to say it's time for business it's business time. Ooh!

It's business.
It's business time.
[ moans]

I remove my clothes very, very clumsily, tripping sensuously over my pants. Now I'm naked, except for my socks, and you know when I'm down to just my socks what time it is...

It's business.
It's business time.
You know when I'm down to my socks it's time for business that's why they call it business socks."

I tested these out for 1 day at Alta Ski Resort.
I found the fit to be totally wack attack.

I am 5'3" and 120 lbs, and I've always taken a size small or XS in every ski pant I've ever used. These barely fit in a size Medium.
There is a really awkward cinch at the waist that I found highly unflattering. Reminded me of the 80s Mom Jeans I hunt for on occasion at Goodwill for 80s themed ski days or parties. Great for laughs, not an everyday style!!

The cuffs of these pants BARELY fit over my ski boots, which aren't particularly bulky. These would be better suited to ice climbing perhaps?

HATED the way my booty looked in these things, yuck!
These just did NOT work for my body type, they could be the jam for you, they weren't for me.

THE GOOD NEWS: BD has brought on a new designer who is TOTALLY dialed for their 2016 line. I'm beyond excited to see what she can do to tweak the women's line and improve fit.

Performance wise, these were waterproof and breathable, as expected with Gore-Tex Pro. Since I only tested these for 1 day, I didn't test them in a wide range of conditions, but I expect these will perform fairly well.

For me: These were a bust, but I think the future is bright.
