So far these seem like a quality product. Haven't had to put them in action yet, but who really wants that haha. They seem to be durable material and light. Fit well in my mammut float pack and I hardly notice they are there.

I got these in a size medium for the 161 Jones solution and the fit was good, did not have to stretch them. They do not come with the skin savers like the regular G3, but the goat logo is awesome I just bought the savers seperately! Haven't used them much yet, but first couple times have worked well, great traction.

I bought this shirt for my best friend as a gift. He does a bike commute to work every day in NYC. Thought it would be a great shirt for riding around town. He loves it. The DWR especially, it keeps him dry when weather shows up out of nowhere, plus he is still nicely dressed for work. It runs true to size.

This is a great midweight midlayer. It is soft and comfortable, but a tighter fit if you are used to loose layers. The arms are long (which is great as I come from a long arm gene pool) and a good length on the torso as well. My mom got the teal and loves it, wears it all the time in fall and winter. Runs true to size if you want it snug, size up if you want it more loose

I myself am not a huge scarf person, but picked this up for my mother who lives for scarves. I got her the black/orange version and she is in love. Its soft and the colors are very rich, great quality.

Great merino sock for the price. They do pill a bit, and also wear a bit, but for the price you can't go wrong. I also wear them for EVERYTHING! They are warm, but also wick well. Very comfortable for everyday in winter, and also for hiking. I also wear them biking on cold days

Wanted to buy a girlfriend a snowsuit for her new baby. Wasnt able to spend 100s on one for a gift, but she loves this one. Especially as its something that will only be used for one season it worked out perfect! Runs true to size, and she puts her little boy in it with some warm clothes underneath and he is toasty up in Park City Utah!

I have definitely put this board through the wringer. Its a great all mountain freestyle board, and although I don't really do any park I have had fun with this board on all sorts of natural features and in the backcountry. Its my go to board here in utah at snowbird, and have ridden it backcountry in bc, alaska, and argentina/chile. It does great in powder, and on groomers. I am 5 foot 6.5, 135 pounds (female, but go for the men's board as it is stiffer) and ride a 151.

I love the fit and look of these sunglasses. They are super light and very comfortable to wear. I am one of those people that gets headaches if glasses pinch the nose or behind the ears too much. They stay on without budging, but are still so comfy. wore them backpacking and they worked great. Super clear optics and scratchproof. My only thing I have noticed is that the smudge coating seems to only be on the exterior of the lens, the inside gets smudged easily. But only a minor gripe. Otherwise, they are awesome shades.

I bought this jacket for my father as he just went back to being a professor at the university. Now that my mad physicist father has to leave the house he needed a nice coat that could also be dressed up to walk around campus . He loves it. It blocks the wind, and is warm while not being bulky. He is 5 foot 8, 145 and wears a medium, runs true to size.
