Chase Skidmore's Bio

I'm a Utah native. Mountain biking, climbing, and traveling are three of my passions that consume most of my time. Split boarding is becoming my winter obsession.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Size Purchased: Large

I'll be honest, these are not my daily go to gloves, just because I usually opt for a little padding. But they are light, well-designed, and they fit well for the days when I want the most minimalist glove I can find. Also, I love the finger details for brake lever grip, and the poppy bright colors.

I always go with a size L in gloves and these are spot on. The graphics are unique and so far they've been pretty solid. I've got a couple hundred miles on these and they are still going strong. Definitely the top pick out of the last 4-5 pairs of gloves I've had.

I really like this hoody. The material is soft and quick to dry and I like the fabric underneath the arms that helps to wick moisture. I wear a medium in most products, but I went L in this sweatshirt. I think it fits well. I'm 5'9" and 180 with long arms. As bullet point number 2 calls out, this thing is a relaxed fit. Great for casual use, sun protection, traveling, and to warm up after spending time in some chilly water. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.

Casual All-Arounders

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 180 lbs
Size Purchased: 34

I've put these pants through a variety of conditions and activities, from desk work at the day job, to muddy hikes, to off-width crack climbing, to summer-time backcountry snowboarding. The durability has been great, and the fabric still looks new. The fit is nice, true to size in the waist, good length, and I like the taper. It seems that after one wash the leg opening relaxed just a little bit which is nice. They are a trim tapered pant, perfect for casual situations, or forays out into the wilderness. I would recommend them.

These shorts are great. They fit nicely and I like the built in webbing belt. The shorts have just the right amount of stretch and can handle a wide variety of activities. The shorts dry quickly and the pockets can dump water fast. These will be my go to for warm summer paddling, fly fishing, climbing, and canyoneering this summer. Simple shorts with well thought out pockets and features make them stylish enough for casual use, but functional enough for any outdoor adventure.

It'd been a few years since I purchased a Burton board. I finally decided I couldn't pass up this shape or graphic for the good snow year we were having in Utah. I've taken this board cat skiing in the Uintas, and resort riding throughout Utah. I've ripped powder, corn, groomers, and hot park laps. The 156cm is perfect for me and my style of riding (5'9", 175lbs). The board stays stable at speed, carves groomers decently, and even handles kickers in the park. But really where this board dominates is in the steep and deep terrain. Float is almost effortless and you can get barreled on every turn.

This was my first experience owning EST bindings. It had been years since I bought a Burton board, and decided I needed the fish this year. I'm really impressed by these bindings. I love the straps, they are comfortable, easy to use, and easy to get out of the way. EST was a cinch to setup. I got these for my fish, so more for powder riding. I like the flex on them, and have taken a few laps in the park with them too. No complaints here.

Warm, comfortable, adjustable, durable, and well-ventilated. I've really got no complaints with this helmet. Smith knocked it out of the park with this one, and it works great with Smith goggles. Ride with a helmet, and make it a Smith!

I think these are the perfect weight of glove for me. They are thin enough to have great dexterity, but thick enough to keep my hands warm. I always have to go Gore-Tex or else my hands get soaked. These keep them dry. Most of my riding is with my splitboard, so having less-bulky gloves that I can stash in the pack on the way up is definitely a plus too. The screen control finger is nice too for phone usage while gloved.

I gave these to my dad as a gift. (one that he picked out himself) After upgrading to the right size boot with the right flex for his weight and style of skiing, the results were immediate. He loves these. They are comfortable but perform well. He rates them 5 stars.

I upgraded my Seca 800 recently with this bad boy. It is insanely bright! Everything is dialed in with the light as I've come to expect from light and motion. The cord reaches a jersey with ease. It mounts to a handlebar or helmet easily, and the battery is shaped to hug a seatpost if you don't want to carry a pack or throw it in your jersey pocket. Depending on where you mount it. No issues for me so far, I never had any in the 3 years I've had my seca 800 either, so I think it should be smooth sailing. Battery life is great. If you want to ride fast at night, and maybe blind some unsuspecting night hikers at the same time, than this light is for you.

Solid Saddle
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Built up a new bike over the winter and went out on a limb and bought this saddle. I wanted to try something new and customize my sizing a little bit. I went with the medium based on my measurements as other reviews have mentioned. Once I got all the new bike tweaks out of the way and the saddle positioned where I needed it I realized I'd made a great decision on a comfortable, durable, and stylish saddle. Happy with my purchase and looking forward to many more miles of riding.

Amazingly Comfortable

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This helmet fits wonderfully. It is extremely light and ventilated. I can wear a buff or cap underneath in cooler weather. The dial is easy to adjust and get perfect. Very nice helmet that is superbly designed and manufactured.
