I've always had good luck with watches from BC and S&C up until I purchased this little gem. The guys at BC usually have the descriptions down to a T so Im not sure how this one got messed up.

The entire watch is made of plastic, not metal. The pictures make it look good and tough but the actual watch is flimsy and very weak. The face of the watch was even upside down in regards to the 12 oclock bezel. Walmart could have done better with a watch made by Huffy.

I didn't get the option to give it zero stars so it gets one by default.

Hope I have better luck next time.

Just had a chance to try these on the mountain yesterday and I really enjoyed them. I have the tan leather pair and they look really sweet and are very comfortable with my big hands. I bought the XL and they fit great. Leather gloves look great with anything and everyone knows you're ready for business! They kept my hands warm for the most part, it was a really cold day (low 20s), and toward the end of the day my fingers got kinda cold, as I expected from the description, previous reviews and the fact that they are not mittens. Im going with 5 stars cause they will be great in a bit warmer conditions and I'll stick to my mittens for colder days. Great buy!

Did I mention they smell great!???

Just added another favorite to my list of Dakine travel bags! I've trusted my skis to a Dakine ski bag for the last few years and it has held up great! From the back of my truck to the fun and friendly TSA agents nothin' has dinged my sticks! So I figured it was time for a clothing bag too and at $35 from SAC I couldn't go wrong. The lined compartments are great and the zippers are very durable and very smooth. Lightweight material but very durable keeps the bulk down and my clothes dry and intact. I have plenty of faith that this bag will do a great job for years to come.

Had a chance to try these mits yesterday at the mountain and I was very impressed at how warm they were. They don't have a removable liner and they aren't super bulky but kept my hands toasty warm to my last run. Easy to get on and off and they don't have a lot of straps and whatnot to get caught on stuff. I have big hands and went with the XL and I have plenty of room for my long fingers and the snot/goggle wipes on BOTH thumbs are a big plus so you don't smear your buggers on your goggles!

Been rockin these since I got 'em! They work great! Excellent sound quality and big enough to cover my big ears. I've used them with my phone a couple times and the mic works great for talking and allows for you to click between calls and music with the button on the mic. Great buy from whisk.

Finally got a chance to use this bad boy on the slopes last weekend and it rocked! The Ski Chair setting is great for calculating vertical feet skied/minute and seems to be very accurate (I double checked the true vertical feet of the resorts base and summit and it was within about 10 ft). It is big, so people with small wrists/women beware. But its nice that it is big with a large band so you can wear it over your jacket so you don't have to constantly take your gloves off and roll up your sleeves to start/stop the functions. Should be fun this summer on the hill to see how fast I can bike the same terrain. The barometer is also very accurate and was spot on with the current weather conditions and it is super user friendly. I usually rock a Tissot T-Touch but this thing goes above and beyond on the mountain. Well worth the money especially from SAC.

I've had the jacket for almost a month now and it has been really nice for the Spring weather (40s-50s) we've been having here in Washington. I ordered a XXL cause Im 6'4"/220lbs with long arms and broad shoulders and I have plenty of room. It does have a larger fit so skinny guys might be swimming in it but thats only to be expected from a Kavu XXL. As far as the material goes, the outer fabric is nice and seems to hold up to wear and tear and the inside is nice and soft. Im not a fan of the webbing like material on the inside so I knocked off a star but the fleece on the neck and cuffs is nice. Its no Carhartt but for the price on SAC you shouldn't be expecting one anyways.
