I'm normally committed to Asics Nimbus running shoes, but the price has gotten out of control. So I strayed and went with these PI running shoes. My podiatrist also recommended them for me. I'm normally a 12.5 and these fit just like other 12.5 shoes I wear (Asics, Nike, etc). Out of the box, these felt very light and as if I was walking on air! The fit is similar to wearing a sock, and they are very well made and constructed. Time will tell how durable they are and how long they last, but I would recommend these to anyone who wants a cool looking shoe with great support and comfort.

Purchased these socks to add some flair to my work wardrobe. Icebreaker is a company I'm loyal to and find they always make a high quality product. I went with the orange and red, which looks really cool and easy on the eyes. These socks are thin, but I find they have been durable and their wool fabric makes them comfortable and odor free on long days.

Tried on many a pair of goggles and only found on pair that fit with my helmet and face, which was the POC Lobes. I opted for the orange since I find the color enhances to variability of the terrain in all conditions. Sure, it may be a bit bright on blue bird conditions, but it does not bother me. I'm not a big fan of having to spend extra money on replacement goggles.

The Lobes are well made and well designed. I like the big, spherical lenses that almost make me look like a fighter pilot. The strap has a rubbery/sticky material on the inside the prevent slippage on your helmet. The orange color of the strap does not match the image on the website. In person the strap is more orange flouro in color, which was fine by me. I find having this piece of equipment improves and enhances my performance on the slopes due to comfort, fit, and by providing clear vision.

I love the espresso chip bars and buy them by the box. I find them to be a treat on long days on the slopes or long road rides in the mountains. These bars work miracles and give me a surge of energy to keep pushing myself hard. Non-GMO ingredients and seems like a great company I don't mind supporting and giving my hard earned money to.

Would this be a good all-mountain ski (90-100 mm waist) for an intermediate skier looking for a ski that's easy to turn and good for groomers as well as some fun during a powder day out west?

Passing on a 2nd hand review from my wife, but she absolutely loves the Black Pearls. She has been skiing for over 20 years and these skis immediately improved her confidence and control on the mountain. Ice? Powder? Groomers? This ski will go through anything with finesse. They are stable through turns and hold an edge at speed very, very well. She pushed these skis hard and feels that she's only unlocked 20% of their potential. Many more fun days on the slopes to come! These skis live up to their reputation, just like many of the other Blizzard skis.

Is there any reason why one would not purchase this ski? The reviews are awesome and I'm looking for an all mountain ski that functions anywhere on the mountain (other than moguls). I'm also looking for a stable ski that won't chatter when I'm carving at speed. Thanks

Perfect down vest in every possible way - I'm 6'3" 195 lbs and went with a medium for a close, snug fit. The vest is not bulky or puffy like others on the market. This is clean looking vest with a high collar to keep my neck warm. Use this as a layer when I go skiing to keep the core warm and it's functions very well. Green is my favorite color - so it was a no brainer to get the green model this year. Patagonia rocks - easy returns if you ever don't like their products.

bridgdale is now my go to sock manufacturer for down hill skiing. these socks are nice and thin, but still provide warmth. nice and high for my long stems. should get many years out of these socks, which come in cool colors too that even match my ski boots, if you're into being matchy match. I'm a size 11.5 and went with large.

This jacket is what I live in all winter. I really prefer the hooded model vs. the non-hooded. Great for 45 degrees and below, with options to layer underneath or above for lower temps. I wish it was a bit more form fitting, but that's my only complaint. I'm 6'3" 195 lbs and went with the large. The hood is great if you forget your hat and this jacket seems like it will last for a very long time. Great feature is how small it compresses if you travel and need to stash it in your carry on.

After seeing a boot fitting icon in my 'hood, he recommended 2 things: thin ski socks and long underwear that is 3/4 length. I checked Backcountry.com and found a pair in their store brand at a reasonable price. I went with size large, which fits my 6'3" and 195 lb frame with a 34" in waist. I'd describe my physique as thin and found the tights to fit perfectly around the waist and around my legs. The length was perfect and terminate at the top of my boots. These are well constructed and should keep my warm and last for many years.

Fit: True to size

Wore these for the first time on the slopes today and loved them. I wear a size 11.5 shoe and found the large to fit fine. Not overly compressive, but enough that you have to put some effort into getting the sock over your heal. The thinness of these socks it was I truly enjoyed. Today it was 30 degrees on the hill, but my feet never got cold. This was also my first time skiing without thicker socks, and I really prefer the thinner socks now. I just ordered a paid of the Vertige light socks since my wife loves them. Don't itch either and will hold up well over time. They are also long enough to come just below my knees. Perfect!

?but when I do, I use Assos.

I would say on average my taint is more sensitive than most. So if I'm going out for a century or all day ride, I take extra precautions by putting some of this stuff to reduce the friction. I invest in shorts with a good chamois and find the Assos chamois cream makes the ride a bit more comfortable.

I've never had an allergic reaction, but after reading one of the other reviews I may pass on using chamois cream in the future do reduce the amount of chemicals put on my skin.
