This is an awesome shirt for working out, yoga, hiking, climbing, pretty much any form of venture in which you want something light, breathable, and that provides great range of movement. The shirt is light and airy and moves with you , with a great fit that is loose enough for comfort but still flattering. I trail run in it, lift weights, do yoga, climb, and mountain bike in it- if this is any testament to its versatility.

Love these socks, the length is good, material is stretchy and breathable. Seem durable thus far. I wear a size 7 and the small size works well. Love the fun graphics . Great mountain biking socks that protect my shins a bit when riding downhill

I love long socks for biking. These are a perfect length that provides some extra shin protection. They are soft and comfy and breathe well. My only minor complaint is that they have pilled a bit. Otherwise awesome socks that match my Yeti Bike!

These are great fitting shorts. The camo is great, and yes the ones you will get will have purple zippers. I was actually pleasantly surprised and loved the contrast between the camo and bright purple. The fit is loose without being too baggy , and the fabric breathes great. Material is a bit thinner than other shorts I have so will have to see how they handle a crash !

This is an easy to use piece of gear that works well for what you need it for. Its easily adjustable so makes it easy to shorten or lengthen depending on how you want to anchor yourself. Also lightweight so doesn't weigh you down on long multi-pitch routes

This is one of my favorite 3 person tents. Weight is still decent for backpacking, and the extra floor space is quite comfy. This easily has fit three people comfortably with some gear and even a dog as well at one point with gear out in the vestibule. It can be snug, but still comfortable. The tent is easy to set up and has held up well in weather, including a crazy hailstorm in the Uintahs couple weekends ago.

As mentioned in other reviews, this hat does have a high crown. This works well for me and I have several colors of the hat. It's my favorite hat to give as a gift. I have several cousins in Argentina and Spain running around with goat hats repping the goat! It has fit pretty much everyone I have ever given it to. Good quality , have only replaced it after crazy abuse.

Bought these shoes for my brother as a gift as he can wear them to work. The all black color looks nice with his business casual attire and he says they are quite comfortable , and quality is good for the price

This is my go to pack for all of my climbing gear. It is burly, durable, and also looks great. Love the top loading and am always amazed at how much I can fit inside this thing. It is versatile enough to fit climbing shoes, harness , chalk bag, snacks and layers to just fitting a couple extra outfits for a weekend adventure.

Burly Downhill Shorts

I sprung for some of these after a gnarly hip check crashed left me with a nasty hematoma on my hip. The hip pads on these have helped me out on a couple crashes since then and overall the shorts are great. The fit is good, great length just over the top of the knee pads, while still maintaining a nice fit. the material in the seat is great. Only downfall is they can be a bit hot on warm days, but it is something you sacrifice for a bit more protection. The colors are also awesome I have blue camo print from last year and now the mellow yellow as well.

I just put this saddle on my free ride bike and its been great thus far. I don't do a ton of climbing on that bike, but when I do this saddle has been super comfy while still being light. Its great on the downhill and keeps me comfortable on long days of riding

I got these for my father as a father's day present. So far he loves them. The fit is great, I got the 7 inch length and its perfect for him, not too short but not board short length either. Material is comfortable and quick drying. My father is 5 foot 8, 145 pretty slim build and the medium fit great. He got tons of compliments on them on a recent trip to Florida.

This is the quintessential perfect travel pack. It's like Osprey thought of every possible thing you could need, and made an amazing feature to address it. Such awesome organizational pockets, super burly fabric, while still looking sleek and stylish. Slapped a goat sticker right on it and it went right on a plane to Europe for a week long adventure.

These are my go to gloves for hot weather downhill mountain biking. They are light, flexible, and have great grip. For days I am going a bit more crazy I wear my gloves with a bit more protection, but otherwise these are great overall! I have average sized hands for a woman in the palm, but very long fingers so I went up to a medium and the size is great.

I love beef stroganoff. It is my go to meal for every backpacking trip. The taste and texture is great and its very filling. I usually share the 2.5 servings package between two people for dinner and its perfect. I have never taken anyone on a backpacking trip that has not enjoyed this meal.
