Mountain Hardwear ~ Review & Giveaway



Looking for sturdy gear for camping, hiking, climbing, etc.? You will love this company I'm about to tell you about then! Mountain Hardwear makes sturdy, durable gear and clothing that any outdoor enthusiast will get excited about!

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to review their La Strada skirt from their Mountain Lifestyle line. As soon as it arrived, the quality of the garment was obvious. I honestly don't own many things that I would say were made with such great quality. It's easy to see that the fabric and the way it is sewn will hold up very well and should last me years and years. Seriously, I mean it.

All of my worries about what the skirt might be like were quickly dismissed once I put it on. I was afraid with how short I am that the skirt would be a length that would hit in an unflattering place on my legs, but it didn't. In fact, the fit of this skirt is incredible. It fits me like it was tailored just for me. I also envisioned this scratchy, rough material because of the idea of it being for outdoors and durable... no scratchy or rough material at all. Instead, it's soft and super comfortable. The skirt has a lot of nice stretch and also has DriRelease® waist lining that wicks moisture and keeps you cool. It truly is just an incredibly made skirt.

Women's La Strada Skirt (OL3450)

Take it on the road: clean front, with a hidden side seam cinch and plenty of stretch. DriRelease® waist lining wicks moisture and keeps you cool. Features: Durable stretch fabric for movement • Water repellent finish sheds moisture • DriRelease® fabric lining wicks moisture • Lots of pockets for storage • Side seam cinch drawcords for mobility • UPF 50 sun protection Fabrics: Body - Strolling Stretch™ Twill (94% nylon, 6% elastane)

Details: 8 oz.; 220 g; Center Back Length / Inseam - 22 “; 56 cm; Grill, Khaki, Moon Dust, Stone Green; $60.00





I could go on and on just about how great I think this skirt is, but I'd like to show you a couple other items from Mountain Hardwear that I think are awesome too...











I could keep adding, but you get the idea. Lots of great products! They are on the more pricey side, but they are professional grade outdoor products that are made to last and if you are an outdoor enthusiast, I'm sure you understand how important that is.

The awesome people at Mountain Hardwear would like to offer one of my readers a La Strada Skirt like the one I reviewed! You will love it, trust me! To see how to gain entries to win this awesome skirt, see below...
