Very sturdy and holds my 30lbs plus bike securely at high speeds. 1 star penalty for the poor rear clamp system. Even the shorter screws did not fit underneath my Whispbar setup. I had to order hardware for the EuroPitchfork in order to be able to use properly on my car. I could have ordered the EuroPitchfork in the first place but I want to be able to use the rack on both slotted and non-slotted rack systems on different cars.

Luckily, I have only had to use the shovel to dig out my car from getting turfed or some basic backyard avi pits. The shovel seems strong and well made. It definitely moves a lot of snow, more than some of the other collapsable shovels I have tried before. It also fits very well into the front fold pocket of the DaKine Heli Pro backpack from a few years ago. I hope to never have to use it in the field of play but it's nice knowing its always there just in case.

This vest fits quite well on my German Retriever when we are in the mountains and walking early in the morning, at night, or in deep snow. I like how the vest protects her chest against branches etc while running through deep snow covered fields. Certainly this is no substitute for a retriever chest protector but, I only use this when it's super frigid and its worth every penny in those certain occurrences. 4 stars because it does not allow for me to use her harness with the vest, a small opening at the top for her harness' dring would make it a 5 star product.

Super good overalls! Just picked up a pair size Medium color Black. Material has proven to be super water resistant. Fit is relaxed but not too baggy. Certainly not as baggy as some Burton and Volcom pants were a few years ago. I personally like all the little pockets and stashes all over the pant for better organizing all the small things that I have along for my day of riding. However, I was really hoping they would make these in the Omega Series with GoreTex. I think they may have increased this years waterproofing and breathability from 10000mm to 15000mm. Otherwise the pant looks the same as 2011. But let's be honest, 4 stars, nothing really beats GoreTex when you are playing with Mother Nature.

Like the other review said. This ski is fat but not too fat. Stiff but not too stiff. A good all around mountain ski. A great bargain for this price. I have other skis I would rather take out on super good pow days but in the afternoon when I want something more maneuverable and not quite as fat underfoot this is the call. Nice to see a good ski at a great price point.

I have been using this iron for about 3 years. It came as a part of my DaKine tunekit. It is simple to operate and effective. I have to agree with some of the other reviews that the temperature is a bit difficult to control. However, it has never done any base damage to my quiver due to carbonation or excessive heating. Most often the iron cools itself too quickly and is unable to melt the wax until the temperature is manually turned up. Overall for the price and my skill level this is perfect for the do it yourself tune.

These Oakley's are super comfortable. The Vr50 Pink Iridium lens is great for flat to mid light conditions. They do cut off a little bit of my peripheral vision due to the super soft lining of the frame sometimes creeping into view. Otherwise it's just what you would expect from Oakley, a high quality frame with great interchangeable lens options.

I have these mounted on my Moment Bibby pro 190cm. I should also mention I have an older version of these mounted on a pair of Head Mojo's. I trust this binding to give me the perfect balance between not pre-releasing in no fall zones and letting me go when my ACL is screaming for help. When these are properly mounted and tested they should perform wonderfully for any level of skier given their big din range (4-14). Over the years I have been taught that you never want to dial a binding within 2 of the min or the max. So these are designed for people skiing in the 6-12 din range. They are not quite as burly as the Freeski2 180 but they do have similar metal reinforcements in key places such as under the heel. The wide mounting pattern also increase performance for skiers using a wider ski. In my opinion they are durable and will last a few seasons.

I would say the 190cm may be a little too stiff as an every day park ski at least for me. But the smaller size 174cm is made with 3.5mm of camber underfoot instead of the 5mm in the 184 and 190, which given the same amount of rocker should be more suitable for the park. I also feel this ski given its dimensions handles more like an all mountain jib/ bomber depending on the size. Moment does make a few more park specific skis such as the Rocker which has no camber underfoot and early rise tip and tail, perfect for destroying all the features of your local park. Just my opinion from riding my 190's, hope it help.

I purchased this helmet for skiing and skateboarding. The included winter and summer liners are comfortable but personally I prefer using my own beanie instead of the liner for the snow. The sizing seems a bit small so I went a size bigger and did not regret it. My NewEra hat size is between 7 1/8 - 7 1/4 and I went with a Bern size Large. The EPS foam gives me added confidence when entering into a sketchy situation. The Brock Foam is great for small bonks but I had a bad concussion years ago and place a high value on whats inside the bucket. The helmet is comfortable and feels sturdy enough to handle some punishment. I also have a Giro Remedy S full face which I use on occasion but this helmet will get a lot more use in everyday type of situations.

This ski kills it in every condition I have thrown at it so far. From groomers to a foot of powder these planks remain stable and allow me to get where I want, how I want, when I want. I should add this is my first Rocker/Camber/Rocker ski. The shape allows you to turn a big all mountain plank like a 70mm underfoot slalom ski. Moment has really hit the spot with this design that holds it together in all conditions. I am super satisfied with my choice of new ski for the year and will definitely be getting another pair from Moment next year.
PS: Mounted Rossi Freeski2 -1 of the line. Works Great!

I ordered the Suunto Core as a gift for myself on my birthday. Initially I was going to just wear it for outdoor activities, but I have now had it for 6 months and I haven't worn any of my other watches. It's comfortable, durable and for the size of the face doesn't get in the way too often. Make sure to read the booklet and calibrate all your settings so it doesn't show your altitude as -105ft or something else weird. Once you have it dialed it's a great sidekick for all your outdoor adventures, or at least it has been for me. The only reason I am leaving a 4 star review is the battery life. If you use the technical features of this watch prepare to replace the battery every 3-4 months. Overall I am super stoked on this watch.
