There is nothing worse than being on a long ride and all you have is kool-aid (read gatorade) or any other super sugary "sports" drink in your bottle. This stuff is very light and works great. It'll keep you going without making you sick to your stomach like the punch style beverages. I like the lime flavor best.

This has the basics and more. I bought 2, one to keep in my car and one to take with me in the backcountry. I am a BSA climbing instructor so a good first aid kit is a necessity. I am also a scout master. I took this with me on last summers week long camp and thankfully didn't need more than bandaids. It's nice to know that you can handle a wide range of emergencies. It is not the lightest kit, but it has a heck of a lot more than a light basic kit would have.

I have 3 Sog knives and this is the one I use most. The quality is exceptional. It opens one-handed in a flash (hence the name). It was bigger than I expected when I got it, but I don't regret it one bit. The lock is definitely a plus, keeps it from taking off anything it's not supposed to. It balances well in my hand and feels great. Plus who wouldn't love to pull their knife out of their pocket and whip the blade open while their friends gape in awe.

Some of my buddies have made fun of me for sporting my apron while cleaning and fixing my bike, but I won't complain. At the end of the day my clothes are still clean. The pockets on the chest are great for holding allens, lube, screwdrivers or most any other tool. You can even use this thing in the kitchen or to grill. Get one and quit wearing your wife's baking apron in the shop!

The tool is awesome. I have two, one for my roadie and one on my MTB. The one on my MTB fell apart. Both bolts came out and the allens were everywhere. It did get bounce around quite a bit in my saddle bag and I never checked the bolts. The one on my road bike is still tight and going strong. The chain tool is not as good as having a stand-alone chain tool, but it is better than others I have used and seen, like the Alien. I also like that it is flat and therefore more compact.

This pad is very comfortable. I have a hard time sleeping on my side with other pads but not with this one. I have used it several times and have slept great. I used it in the snow, in January in Southern Utah, and at an early spring backpacking trip. It rolls up to about the size of a Nalgene and is lighter than my other pad too. It fits great in my Big Agnes winter sleeping bag's pocket. I fit fine on the long (I am 6'2", 210 lbs).
Get one and you won't regret it.

I have used these for a season and change now. I am 6'2" and about 200 lbs and the 30 inchers work fine for me. I have used them on an overnight backpack/snowshoe/snow caving trip and they kept me afloat pretty well. I think the 35's would have been a little more supportive of my weight and pack, but these are what I have and they did the job. I use them mainly for getting out and enjoying the Utah snow for a day. Bindings are awesome; I have no trouble staying in them. They can be a bit tricky getting of when your hands are cold and they are snowy but besides that I have no complaint.
