Nice, lightweight jersey; cool design and graphics. Nice fit - loose enough to accommodate light pads and not to cling to every lump and bump, but not so baggy that you look like you're wearing someone else's shirt. The colors on the Evergreen shirt are darker than in the picture, so there's less contrast between the pattern and background than the picture. The pattern is silk-screened on, and sticks to itself when the shirt is folded. The shirt comes with a large dayglo sticker warning the purchaser to keep the it away from any velcro. All-in-all, I decided that was a little too much to ask of me. But it IS a pretty cool shirt.

Bought this armor for my husband for mountain biking and downhill biking. It offers lots of protection - hard plastic inserts at elbows and shoulders, nice amount of low-profile closed foam padding over spine, ribs, collar bone. Seems breathable enough so far, but we have not used it yet on a really stinking hot day. The fit is very adjustable and it moves well with his body. The price is fantastic for the amount of protection this armor offers.

Very versatile tool: Guides the stone for use at one of two angles. The stone can be adjusted to expose the desired width of stone to your edge. The stone can be changed out easily when it wears or you want a different amount of grit. Fits the hand nicely. Small enough to tuck in a pocket easily.

What's to say? These are basic rubberband-type ski retainers. They do exactly what they are supposed to do - hold the ski brakes up and out of the way so you can work on your ski bottoms. Yes, they are more substantial than then office-supply rubberbands you get around your mail, so they won't suddenly snap while you're scraping down that coat of wax you just ironed on.

Bought this for my husband, looking for some minimal mountain road-biking protection.

The good - This is a very lightweight skin-type top.

The not as great - The padding is only over the ribs, the collar bone, and down the spine. Nothing at elbows and shoulders.

The equivocal - The padding is very low profile, so it fits under clothes well, but doesn't offer a whole lot of protection.

Bottom line - we decided to go with another Demon Snow item with more robust protection.

The fit - a little on the large side, unlike other Demon Snow women's items I've tried.

Since I want to use this for mountain biking, too, I decided to go with another Demon Snow item with more robust protection.
