Mount Snow VT, Burlington VT, Connecticut River, Atlantic Ocean
I've struggled over the years to find a boot that doesn't cut off circulation and make my foot cramp up and freeze. But these boots with the smart foam intuition liner is amazing. Warm, dry, high all mountain performance. Easy on and easy off for these boots. The cable system takes all of 2 minutes to get used to.

I like the all black look, it doesn't screen park rat like a lot of the other FT boots.
I've had these gloves for one whole seaosn how and can't tell much for signs of wear and tear. The gloves are great on my East Coast cold days and just too warm during spring conditions. I don't sweat in them like some of the higher end dakine gloves I've used in the past. The padding is nice to help knock branches out of the way when bombing through the woods.
All jokes aside, this ski is a great all over the mountain. They charge and bust through the crud while holding an edge on the hardpack. Turning radius is as expected with a 97mm underfoot but still feels lively with the rocker. If you ski the East and need a ski that will handle Stratton then allow you to ski Jay on the Pow day, this is the one to go with.
I've have three pairs of Trons over the years having known the SPY rep. They are fun sunglasses. By no means something to be taken serious. You're going to get comments. You're going to get double takes and funny looks. But that's why you buy these, right? I wear these when I ski in my gaper suit or on bluebird days. They go a long way. Good vision through the shield lens, although my eyebrows sometimes hit against the top of the frame/lens. I'd tell anybody looking for a fun sunglass to buy these.
This watch is big but still subtle enough on your wrist that it doesn't scream LOOK AT ME like some of Nixon's other surfer/skater-bro watches out there. Wear this kayaking or to the bar, wherever you go you will get a comment on it. It's nice that it has two clocks on it so if you travel or work with people in another timezone you can see what time it is there all the time for you and them. There is also a second had on the bottom right (this stopped working for me after a year). The crystal glass does scratch but not for a while. I've had this watch for 6 or 7 years and still love it. I've also bought the Nixon Automatic to class it up a bit.
Same skis as last season and most all shops sold out of this ski last year. Why? Because these skis do everything. At 88mm underfoot you get enough float with the rocker in the tip and tail and then they still initiate turns effortlessly. Take them on the groomers and rip with your friends who have the Volkl AC30/RTM84 or go side by side with your friends with the Nordica EDT 84 EVO. Although the EDT 84 has a higher topend for speed and control at speed. You can take these Rossignols anywhere on the hill and love them. Get them if you wanted a one ski quiver.
This listing is for NO BINDINGS. Get the Rossignol FKS 140 or 180 or the Rossignol Axial 2 120 or 140. The Axial 2 you can get a Ti version for upgraded heel performance rather than the plastic version.
Great binding to go with for this ski with the Rossignol FKS 140 or 180 if you're looking for top of the line performance. Or if you can get a little less performance get the Axial 2 120 or 140.
I live on the East Coast and skied these skis a few times last season. The slight rocker in the tip is just enough to keep them lively and in control in chop. A full carbon frame/sheet on the top that makes an X towards the tip helps keep the edges set in the snow to avoid any chatter. Quick, snappy turns or long radius open trails, these skis can handle top speed performance. Enough flex from tip to tail to allow you to roll through the crud time to time or get if you get caught off your game you won't look silly. Bu still very torsionaly stiff to hold an edge like it's on rails. It's a quality K2 ski worth the money.
With the way ski companies are going by making fatter and fatter skis Thule needs to make a wider model again. My 6-pair rack can fit 4-5 pairs across the top of my roof due to the width of skis. Just keep that in mind if you're looking to carry six pairs on a pow day.
Also, the locks on there are great addition to their newest update. No need to spend more and install them yourself. If you need extra keys, call Thule and give them your 3-4 digit number off the lock cylinder.
Julie, hopefully you've found an answer by now. But I'm just coming across your post. The Civic coupe has a very short distance between bars. I'd go ahead and buy the Thule Short Roof Adapter then get two of the Hull A Ports. They will fit on the Aero Bars due to the oval design of the clamps (which fit on oval and rectangle bars).
I've got a 2013 Subaru Outback (coming from the square bars on my 2005 Legacy Wagon) and notice that if you keep the Hull A Port on the car or when you travel with a kayak on, they can slide side to side while in motion. I can't seem to tighten these down enough to make them keep from moving. Just need to pull over once in a while to make sure the kayak is still sitting straight. I also have the older model of the H.A.P. and love it too, still a little slide on the new oval Outback bars.
New for this model is that the two main straps are a little shorter than the old model. You don't need to tie the loose ends up any longer. Happy with that. Also there is just one clamp that holds the H.A.P. to the roof rack, not two like the old model. Allows you to take them on and off a lot quicker.
All in all its a great product. It's just Subaru that doesn't have the perfect sized bar.
Great stability and control for surfing in waves.
These goggles have the biggest field of vision I've ever had. I've done the Oakly Canopy and Smith I/O in recent trips, but nothing fit my face, helmet, and performed like these Platoons. I wear the Smith Varient Brim helmet and there is no gaper gap or gaps near the temples. I'd give these goggles a shot for your next pair. Go try them on with your helmet if you have any concern.
Have had these glasses for a short time and had them break at the hinge. It does look like there isn't much material to hold in the screw that keeps the arm in place. I'd buy them again but be more careful on where I store them. The lens quality of the Gray is very clear and not too dark to look through. I mainly used these for kayaking and driving. No complaints other than maybe my own error of storing them in my arm rest of the car.
I used to own the White and Blue lens pair of these then sold them and got these brown and gold lens Shaun White editions. Love the classic tortoise color on the frame and the mirror gold lens. I got these to wear casually around the pool and around town. Not something you'd want to wear in the shirt and tie environment, but if you're looking for a good dress down glass, these are great. Frame size is a little large, but you may already know that. Image shows size of glasses.
I bought this jacket after seeing an original one floating around my old ski shopI worked for. The jacket is awesome and gets lots of comments at the bar. Very warm and acts as a good mid layer on a super super cold winter day if you've got a shell for your outerwear. The inside of the jacket isn't fluffy like the outside, but a polyester like mentioned in the description. I didn't read that at first but am happy with it in the long haul. I wear this on cool nights in the fall and spring as well.
Bought this for friends to use on my second kayak. They have no complaints although it's easy to see it's a 100% basic paddle. It you're looking for something that looks nicer, look elsewhere. But if you want something that works perfectly fine for what it's designed for, this is your paddle.
Kathryn, these boats are the best! I used to have a small white water boat but got into these Yak Boards for half day outtings on rivers and large lakes. I would recommend them to you as they feel safe and are comfortable. The only thing I can say for a large lake is that you may want to go with a larger boat than the Yak Board. The Yak is fun for playing around and lazy paddling. I noticed that when paddling long distances there is a lot of resistance and the boat veers from left to right as novice people paddle. A longer boat will cut through the water better for you on a large lake.
I've had one Yak Board for 8 years now and love it. Just picked a 2nd one up from BC in Feb for my friends to use. Good. Inexpensive. Fun.
Normally I don't wear anything from Under Armour but this bathing suit really shines for me. I do a lot of boating and kayaking and needed a suit with a zipper pocket. This suit has a zipper side pocket (good size to hold iPhone and key inside a water tight drybag). The front has two upper pockets just like a pair of jeans would and also has what they call a knife pocket in each one of them. I just put change in there if I'm grabbing a coffee before heading out. The back has a velcro pocket that I don't trust holding much in, but it's nice for the extra pocket. At first the suit repels water 100% then after a few wears it starts to seep into the fabric, but it dries very quickly. I would buy another one but I already have the blue and don't want black. Good job BC for picking these up and UA, nicely done.
