Great shorts. Great included chamois. The shorts run true to size and fit great. The material seems pretty durable and is cool in the hot summer.
Really happy with these.
This probe is very solid and does what it is supposed to do. Very easy to assemble. A little harder to disassemble. Excellent product that should last a long time.
I tried to like these, but in the end they were to wide and mushy. I have a fairly wide forefoot, but these boots were just too wide. They had no 'snow feel' at all and were just too sloppy when skiing. They do tour well and have good range of motion. Went to the scarpa maestrale and am much happier.
I am happy with this boot so far. They are very light. The flex is plenty stiff for me. They tour very well and the liner is very comfortable even without molding (which I haven't done yet). The liner is pretty warm as well.
My only 2 issues are as follows 1. The side of the tongue bites into my shin. I think heat molding will eliminate this. 2. I require canting. I have my alpine boot soles canted. I am not sure how to fix that on a dynafit setup. Maybe shim the bindings.
This is my first set of Dynafit bindings, and I am happy so far. I picked these over the verticals because of the updated heel design. So far I like it. It is very easy to change climbing heights. The only worry I have is the force that is put on the heel hinge for the risers. Overall, the design seems solid and user friendly.
Nice gloves for skiing, working, or climbing. They are thicker than I was envisioning, but still have decent feel for winter gloves. I like the shorter cuff. very easy to put on and off. The leather seems pretty stout. Happy so far...
This is a well made jacket. The fit is good. I wanted to like it, but it was not breathable enough for me. Sweat does not evaporate very fast, even with pockets open.
I've put this jacket through its paces and I am happy with the performance. It breathes very well. Material is very stretchy. It does have a fleece interior that adds some warmth. Works great as a touring or hiking jacket. It does let some wind through (not windproof), but that works well for me because sweat is evaporated quickly. It is a true softshell (no membrane of any kind). Repels light rain/snow, but does wet out after prolonged rain. Bottom line, does what I want it to do in a softshell.
Love these poles. Easy to assemble, easy to disassemble. Very light and sleek looking. Fold up compact. We will see about durability, but after a few uses seems like a very innovative product.
Love these shorts. Fit great and are made of a nice stretchy material that moves well. Love the built-in belt. Material feels great in hot weather and is not too hot.
Only negative imo is the side pocket. Too far down on the leg for me.
Otherwise a perfect product.
These are excellent boots. Lowa makes nice boots, and these are no exception. Unfortunately, they are too narrow in the forefoot area for me. The construction is top notch and the modern lace design really works. There is no pinching from the laces while walking downhill. The boot holds your foot very well. My feet are a little wider than average and the boot is a little narrower than some of lowas other boots (in my experience). These would be great trekking boots for someone with a average or narrow forefoot.
This is a very nice lightweight rain jacket. It packs down very small and is so light you can take it on any hike.
I like the features: pit zips, multiple pockets, and a nice hood. Some hoods on jackets these days are so big (in order to be helmet compatible), they don't fit well without a helmet. This one fits nice and has good adjustments.
The material is very light, but seems pretty durable.
The breathability is pretty good; good enough for the dry climate where I live.
The fit is contoured and athletic.
Very good, light jacket
I'm happy with this pack. It is very light. It has no frame, just a slightly stiffened back panel. It is very comfortable to wear; it sort of wraps around you. The stretchy waistbelt and shoulder straps are a unique idea. The pack is well made: good stitching and high quality (if lightweight) materials.
All in all, a good pack for dayhikes or trail runs.
This boot is outstanding. In one word: nimble. Makes you want to go fast. It is very cushioned. Great for hiking with a light pack. Too soft for backpacking with heavy loads. It fits me great; I have been hiking in the hedgehog low for years with good results. The higher version feels similar, but adds some ankle support. The tread is grippy.
So far the waterproofing is good. I mostly hike in the dry climates of Utah. This boot breathes pretty well; better than an all leather goretex boot. Highly recommend.
I am impressed with the drifter so far. They are stiff enough underboot to be able to open it up in chop. With the early rise tip, it is near impossible to sink the tip in deep snow. I am still getting used to the mount: the Surface recommended line for traditional mount is closer to the ski center than I am used to.
The only issue I have is they seem prone to chipping on the topsheet. Shouldn't affect performance, though. Otherwise seem well built.
This is a cool shoe, but it didn't work for me. The arch area didn't fit my foot.
It looks to be well made and would be a good day hiker. It seems pretty light on the feet.
This jacket fits my needs. It is very light, but very warm. It is like an instant heater when you put it on. Plenty of pockets for storage. The sleeves are plenty long and the stretch cuffs keep cold air out. Awesome.
I'm happy with these. The fit is a little weird for me: loose in the waist and tight around the calves.
They are warm and seems to wick sweat well. Good for skiing.
Works as expected. Somewhat hard to untangle if left in a ball.
Must have if you have a loadwarrior.
Love this helmet. Venting is awesome and easy to use. Padding is comfortable and wicks sweat well. Fits a little different than my variant it replaces.
Feels light on the head and looks great.
