In my van. No, not parked out front of your sister's house, but somewhere in an empty lot while a BLIZZARD is brewing.

Chris's Bio

Where in the world is Chris Tatsuno? Well, you'll have to piece together clues from his Facebook profile to figure out exactly where. Just browse through his most recent mobile uploads or read up on his blog feed. As you check the pics of epic powder and even more epic parties or read along to his stories of ski-bumming out of the TatsVan, just remember: he'll be sure to be on first chair while you're still sipping latte in the lodge.

But, don't let that keep you from trying to score on some pow. There's no mistaking the aroma of the beans and rice cooking in the back of the van as 'Tats' (as his friends call him) kicks back and enjoys a frosty beverage after a long day of shreddage. So, if you see the TatsVan in your local ski-hill parking lot, just head on over and say hi.

Just don't come a-knockin' if the TatsVan is a-rockin'. If you catch our drift. Check out my site for more info www.christatsuno.com

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

These shorts really stand up to the test. I'm a raft guide and SUP'r who is on the river daily. I bought these shorts over two months ago and they still look like new. The tabs on the side are great for cinching up a bit when the day is long and the shorts have been wet for a while...don't wanna let that plumber's crack ride dirty.

I was initially a little concerned about the zippers on the pockets, but they have turned out to be very useful and dependable. The sidepockets keep my phone and wallet in a great spot; even keep em in a good spot for short sprints back to the put-in!

The only downside is the webbed fly, making a quick urination a little more complicated. Oh well...

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this helmet for my girlfriend and she absolutely loves it! We had to return the size small for a size medium, but the helmet fits pretty close to normal sizing standards. With great ventilation and well-placed padding, this helmet rated high on comfort!

It takes a lot of convincing for me to wear socks in the summertime. But, there are those moments when sandals just won't cut it, and I'll find myself slapping some shoes on to go trail running or skateboarding. With the Ultra Light Micro sock, my fear of sweaty summer-feet is negated and I almost forget I'm wearing any socks at all. They don't bunch, they wick moisture away, and they are super lightweight.

Almost makes me want to toss the sandals out. ...almost.

There's not a piece of ski gear that goes forgotten on a powder day than your trusty ski socks. I mean, when the snow's deep and you're out in the elements, it's easy to think about how well your skis are floating in the deeeeeep or how your outerwear is keeping you dry as the snow engulfs you at every turn. But, if you consider how a well-made pair of ski socks are the link to your all-day comfort, it's apparent that they are the most important piece in your shred gear ensemble.

Enter Point6 and their van-tramping, fun-loving, happy-feet mission. The Ski Pro sock is specially designed with the skier in mind, and won't let you blister up, even on long hikes. Add in toe and ankle ventilation, smooth toe seams and a snug over-the-calf fit, and you have an all-day pair of ski socks. I never have that 'my-socks-are-too-tight' welting pattern at the end of the day either. ...or after a long apres!

With 88mm underfoot and a turning radius of 20m at 180cm length, this ski is suited for skiers looking to mash bumps and take some turns in the crud/powder. It has slight tip/tail rocker with low camber underfoot, so it's ready for quick turns and proves to be quite lively.

Synapsis: The obvious = you get the visor. It has an EPS liner, which will require that the helmet will need to be replaced after a significant impact.

Skull Light: has the EPP foam liner, which is designed for multiple impact. (EPP = expanded polypropylene) ...meaning you can take more than one hit with this helmet before you need to replace it.

Sure...check out the size XS/S...it's based on torso length, so you'll want to check out the sizing chart (http://www.pocsports.com/products/sizeguide.asp?season=Ski), but it sounds like the small will be your best bet.
