Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love this pad, great for backpacking and car camping. Not the lightest backpacking pad, but the comfort you get out of it definitely makes up for another couple ounces. I used to use a twin or queen Walmart air mattress for car camping, but they always get a tiny hole or the valve goes out within a summer. I have since replaced these crap mattresses with this pad, as it never fails me. Sleep well under the stars, go for the Insulated Air Core!

Room to stretch

This vestibule is a must-have with your Big House. On a rainy day you can hang out under there in a couple camping chairs with room for a cooler and grill. I wasn't able to fully stand up in this, like I am the interior of the tent, but it's still great to have especially if you pack 5-6 people in the tent and need gear storage.

This should be an essential for anyone who camps or does anything outside in the dark. I've bought multiple Tikkina's as gifts over the years, as everyone has a use for them. If you have a friend still bumbling around with a flashlight at camp, point them in this direction and pick an extra up for yourself to keep in the car. Brighten up your nights and free up your hands!

I take this useful little tool everywhere with me. Fits great on the inside of the pocket with the belt clip and the safety lock prevents me from pulling a Plaxico Burress (knife version) and carving up my own leg. Chord cutter on the knife comes in handy when you need a quick cut without opening the knife. Honestly only used this to pull tags off of stuff so far, but it's fun nonetheless. Used it many times camping for food prep as well. Great little knife and even better when you can get it on sale.

If you only want to spring the money for one decent tent for both backpacking and car-camping this is a must. Splitting the weight of the tent between 2 or 3 people (depending on how cozy you want to get) when backpacking is great and the vestibule provides plenty of extra room for your pack. This is also a great car-camping tent, as it fits a queen size air mattress for when you really want to rough-it. Getcha some!

I fell in love with Osprey packs a few years ago and loved the Nalgene reservoirs the packs used to come with. I was a bit skeptical when finding out Osprey was making them on their own this year, but this one is every bit as good as its predecessor. Rigid back to conform to the pack is great, as opposed to just a loose bladder like CamelBak puts out. The chest magnet is absolutely awesome and allows you to take a drink while still navigating down a trail on your bike. Picked up the cleaning kit as well to ensure any funk that may build up is quickly abolished. Get this bladder and get outside!

Raptor 14 rips it
5 5

More than stoked I pulled the trigger on this pack. Just started mountain biking last summer and used a CamelBak that only had enough storage for a small multi-tool, my keys and maybe an energy bar. I had to ask my friends to carry the tubes and anything else I might need. With this Raptor 14, you can be a one-man army. I have only taken it on a few day rides, but still have been unable to fill it up completely. The bottom tool-kit pocket is awesome: two tubes, muti-tool, pump and other tiny tools you might need fit with ease. Organized mesh pockets allow you to stash the easy-to-lose items. Extremely comfortable with the hipbelt being great compared to any other similar sized packs I check out. Helmet lock, magnetic hydration hose and ease into every compartment make this the must-have biking pack. Not too big, not too small.... just right.

Kane Creek, Moab

Took the Big House 6 on its maiden voyage to Moab for a biking trip. 4 adults and two dogs slept comfortably and stayed dry through the spring rain. Honestly, one of the things I like most about this tent is the carrying case. I'll need to upload a photo when I remember, but it's pretty much a 6-man tent in an awesome soft briefcase. Your fly goes in one flap, poles in the center and tent in the other flap. So much easier than trying to roll everything up together and cram it back in the single bag it originally came in. I was debating between this and the Marmot Limestone 6. Set them both up at REI and had very similar features, but the winning trait of this was the carry-case and the option of the giant vestibule which you can easily set up a couple chairs and wait out the rain under. Best car camping investment I've made!

Honestly, I bought this collar to match my dogs green eyes. In that case, it looks great!
Pro's:
-Ring specifically to clip the leash, so it's not on the same ring as your tags
-Silicone tag silencer. Doesn't fully eliminate the clanging, but definitely damps it down. Not that I ever hated the sound of tags, but this is a nice little touch
-Design on the collar is reflective
-Goes great with the Knot-A-Lease in green as well

Con's:
-After a month of being on my dog, it still hasn't fully "rounded-out" and has a pinch or crease mark in the collar still and the shape of a football instead of a basketball

I used to use an old daisy chain with a biner on the end as a leash, then came across this. I love the reflective stream that goes through the rope and it looks great with my brown dog and his green collar. Handful of friends have already jumped on the wagon and bought their pooches the Knot-A-Leash as well.

The Machete slays all

5'11" 170lbs, riding a 157W
I had the 09/10 Machete a few years back and LOVED it. However, the next season brought a great deal on a new board, so I sold it to pay for something new. Worst mistake, ever. After 2 years without it, I had to go back. If you can only have one board in your quiver, let it be this all-mountain-slayer. From the park to the pow, this thing absolutely murders it and at a great price point too. So far this guy has been to all of the Utah resorts, Grand Targhee and Jackson Hole with varying conditions at all. If they ever stop making the Machete, I might have to give up snowboarding.

Keeping toasty in subzero Jackson weathe

Sizing: Picked up a Medium and it's perfect for me, 5'11" 170lbs

Picked up this jacket for a ski trip up to Jackson Hole. Perfect mid-layer for the below 0 starts to the day and a pretty awesome piece for around town at night, although I did have to do some extra layering underneath for the bar hopping. Lightweight, warm and still holds style to wear alone wherever you may be in the freezing temps. Only the 4th down jacket I've owned, but by far my favorite!

I bought a pair of Braata LR's last fall (leather version) and got so many compliments on them I had to get another pair in a different color. Love the fit and style of these for a casual weekday. So far pretty durable as well, compared to similar style Vans I've owned in the past. Get on these for some urban-extreme-walking!
