Quality at the nice price
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've seen so many other climbers in this harness that I've lost count of my "harness twins." There's a reason everyone is sporting it - affordable and super solid, like everything Black Diamond offers. I fall between medium and large and went with the large harness, it is frequently on the tightest setting. 5'10" about 175, and I could definitely sport the medium with no difficulty.

Fit: True to size

This shell is amazing! Very waterproof, wind-resistant, and the fit is true to size. The pits are equipped with TURE zip-vents (not lined with mesh) so that when you really get your sweat on you can open this jacket up to breathe. The cuffs are great, solid overall construction, and the hood is helmet compatible. As previously stated, the Octane red really pops on a gloomy day. This jacket is FRESH, so get it.

Serious Protection
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The reinforced heel and toe cup on these shoes have literally saved me from breaking toes or bones in my feet multiple times. Whether loose rocks are blowing up underneath you and banging on your bottom bracket or your trails have a lot of tree stumps looking to take off your toes, these are the only way to go. They are the strongest shoes I have ever owned, but they may also be the heaviest. If you don't require a lot of protection I wouldn't recommend the Danny's, due to their weight and breathability. These are a warm shoe to be wearing in TX but protection comes before comfort, especially when it comes to my feet. Lots of style on these shoes; they look even better in person. Machine washable but they take a while to dry (again due to their weight). I got them on deal and wish I would have grabbed 2 pairs! Comfortable protection that will last, no questions asked.

These babies have pads on top of the outer knuckles for when you might punch a tree (or any other obstacle) going through a narrow chute, or cutting a close corner. For this reason I absolutely recommend them to anyone with wide, downhill, or all-mountain handlebars; also if you frequent narrow or unkempt trails. They are definitely breathable for how sturdy the construction is, staying fairly dry even under the Texas sun. The grip is great, and the Velcro wrist straps are extremely sticky and secure. To top it off they look awesome, and have a goggle-wipe fabric across the top of the hand. Look no further for the best all-around glove I've ever strapped on. Get some!

As others have commented, this jersey is extremely breathable and lightweight. For the price point, you cannot find a more adequate riding shirt, especially if the heat is an issue. The reversible sides are an added style bonus, along with a reinforced collar and sleeves. I should have bought 2 of these.

Sick Eyewear!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Not only do these babies have mad swagger, they are a perfect all-season snow goggle. I've used the standard lens on bright clear days, as well as the bonus lens for misty conditions in very flat light, and they were indispensable. The never fog up, and fit well over almost any helmet. They are a little small if you have a big head, or prefer a wider view going downhill. I ordered the Rasta color scheme and couldn't be happier with the look and the fit. For the sale price you really can't beat these!

Killer Pants!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I wore these for a week on the mountain in Whistler, BC and the conditions were very,very wet. Thanks to these pants however, my base layers and skin stayed incredibly dry, and when long runs started to get warm the leg vents were clutch. The waterproofing on these pants the super-velcro pockets make sure everything on you stays secure and dry. Awesome.

I used these gloves for a week in Whistler, BC and the conditions were wet with heavy snow and fog. The goggle wipe was essential for moisture, and the versatility of the removable liners was incredible. I usually have big hands, but the medium version of these is the most comfortable cold-weather glove I have ever worn. Warm, dry, and secure on the hands. Buy these gloves, have no glove problems, end of story.

These gloves fit well, and feel great on the bike whether your bombing some slope or pedaling over technical junk. I was a little disappointed that the raised graphic on the top of the glove started to peel off early on, but it's purely cosmetic. Otherwise these breathe well, and have enough padding for any rider.

This thing is badass! It doesn't look like a tri-fold wallet, but it is a great one. Keeps bills straight, lots of room for cards, and a sweet little zipper pouch. Leather gets warm and wet in my pocket, then hardens out all funky and gross. This wallet will not do that; it's perfect for anyone who's ever pulled a sweaty wallet out of their pocket to pay for food with moist bills (how embarrassing). Never again!

Great Goggles for Getting Rowdy
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These goggles are lightweight and breathable, as long as you move along quick enough to keep air flowing through them. They've held up against some nasty spills, and provide excellent protection against low hanging twigs and branches. 2 lenses make these an even better buy. Excellent specs, and they fit around almost any helmet.
