MacGivor's Bio

I have way too much gear!!! You might say I was a gear head before becoming a sales rep for a ski company. Its ridiculous how much gear my housemate (he works for Oakley) and myself have between the two of us....8 bicycles, 2 motorcycles, lets say in the neighborhood of 15 pairs of skis and 10 snowboards (this does not count the 100 or so pairs of skis and 50 snowboards sitting in my garage that are samples, pro-stock, demo skis, whatever...) Then we could go into sunglasses and goggles which is for sure in the hundreds. We really need to have a sale in the worst kind of way. Shit is falling all over me every day...

I purchased this as a layering piece for skiing to go under my 3 layer shell. Its has been PERFECT. The deep front zip works great to vent a little if necessary. It adds the insulation that I need to stay comfortable in my shell. I feel like it might run bit on the small size. I usually wear small button downs from Patagonia but I am glad i purchased a medium as it seems to fit perfect, a tiny bit tight in a spot or two. The small would be too small for sure.

If you have never owned one I highly suggest having one of these along with you if you are travelling internationally or doing any kind of adventure travel. They dry quickly...soak up lots of water...come in handy all the time.

I have been testing these for over a month. I was in Jackson Hole on Dec 28th and it was -23 when we woke up and it was -16 degrees at 9AM at the base when we were standing around waiting for our group to get together and then waiting in tram line. My trigger mitts hands were totally warm. My hands never did get cold that day but my feet were frozen. Since then I have used them on cold days, pow days, cold pow days, windy days, and i even used them nordic skiing on a really cold day and whereas in some gloves my hands feel sweaty when hot they did feel sweaty at all... So I have pretty much used them in everything but wet or warm. Since they are Gore-tex I am sure they will be awesome in the wet too. I love the trigger because you have more dexterity than a mitt and they are warmer than gloves for sure. Best $99 glove out there. You will be stoked. Oh and in my opinion they seem true to size. I am in a large and I usually wear a large...hand size is 9.5 if that means anything to you.

Its true these brakes to retract in more than any other brake. Its a great new design that allow you to not worry about a brake thats a bit too wide. Go ahead and put a 110 brake on a 95 width ski... JUST A FYI...THESE FIT ATTACK 12, ATTACK 13, ATTACK 16, ATTACK 18, OLDER PEAK 15, PEAK 18, MOJO 15, MOJO 18, THEY ALSO FIT FREE FLEX RACE BINDINGS BUT THEY DO NOT FIT ANY AND ALL TYROLIA.

I just wrapped up a tripped to Brazil and took this shirt with me. I tested the shirt on the airplane. It looks really nice and has lots of pockets and if you get a little warm the roll-up sleeves with button keeper is a nice touch. The next thing i used it for was at the beach as a sun shirt. Once again it works great for that as it was designed for that. The next test was hiking a 3400 foot peak in round trip 7.6 miles in fairly humid 75 degree weather. I was using it more for the bugs than the sun at this point and it did a great job of keeping me bug bite free. Its definetely got a bit damp from all the sweat but it doesn't SOAK it up like a cotton shirt would and it dried real quick on top of the peak. All and all I really recommend this shirt. It fits great, has great ventilation and plenty of pocket space .

I have been wearing these for years. I purchased about 12 pair probably 4 years ago. They have held up really well. The waist bands are starting to deteriorate a tiny bit. I just ordered 6 more pair and they have improved the waistband material. The new version may last forever. They do possibly run a tiny bit small. I am a 30" waist and the MED seems to fit me perfect and they state 30-32" for a medium. If you are a true 32 i would probably go large. I ordered a pair of small to try and they were way too tight.

If you are trying to stay out of the sun this shirt is great. The small is not exactly loose fitting on me but its not skin tight either. The sleeve length is generous. Just been using it so far in the garden and for some hiking. Perfect for avoiding red neck. The hood fits over a hat very well. The material feels very breathable. If there is any breeze at all it feels cooler wearing it than if you were shirtless.

I have been trying to cut back on suncreen use and just cover up more often. This shirt is really comfy. I am 5'9 150lbs and usually a small or medium. I purchased the small and its not exactly loose fitting but not tight either. Sleeve length is perfect. The hood is loose enough that you can really use it for sun shade really well. I will use this fishing later in the summer and I know for sure I will be using it at the beach. So far just been using it on sunny days working in the yard and it does exactly what its desigened for.

These shorts are of the newer slim fitting variety. They are just slim enough that they look good but not too slim that you can't move. They also are the perfect length hitting right at or slightly above the knee. Cell phone pocket on side is stealthy. I own 2 pair now and they are sweet.

I can't get enough with stretch in my jeans or pants. These jeans fit great. They look great. The gusseted crotch makes them more comfy and versatile than any jeans i have ever owned. I mostly have just worn for every day wear and they are perfect.

This shirt is very versatile and looks great. While its not quite as soft as Merino its very stylish and a little more vestatile than your run of the mill cotton shirt. I expect this shirt will last a really long time. Is wool so just know before hand you will have to hang to dry but then again you are saving energy so whats the problem there?

These pants are so versatile that I went back and orderered a 2nd and a 3rd color. I love them. The look great and feel great. They are versatile enough for climbing or a night on the town. The stretch material wears very comfortably. The cell phone pocket is very handy.

I love these pants. They fit true to size and I could spend 24 hours a day in them. The stretch is great and the gusseted crotch is incredibly comfortable. The only complaint I have is the Pewter color which looks like an awesome grey in the photo is actually some kind of green. Its more green then grey...beware. I wonder what the cargo green looks like.
