Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This shirt is really comfy. I like the feel of the cotton-poly blend. My only gripe about this shirt is that the sleeves were too tight on my forearms so I just cut them off right below the elbow. Now, it feels better and I feel waaaay cooler. Two birds with one stone

I bought this through a pro-form deal and I couldn't be happier with them. My advice to anyone if they're buying a Hestra glove is to go to a dealer and try pairs on to figure out your size. Another piece of advice is that these take sometime to completely break-in like any other all-leather glove. But, these are extremely comfortable, I love the wrist straps that are included (they're sooooo helpful), and if you apply the leather balm once or twice in a season these will last longer than any other pair gloves you have. Great buy and highly recommended!

I bought this helmet to replace an old and cheap park helmet and I don't understand why I didn't make the switch sooner! This helmet is extremely light, the boa system is fantastic, the vents are very helpful and convenient, and my goggles fit well (they say Smith googles fit better but I have a pair of Smith IOs and some old pair of Dragons and I don't notice anything). I have a mellon head and large fit perfect! I don't think theres enough room to put a regular beanie on under but I don't think its necessary with this helmet but if your head gets cold, you could probably just put a skullcap on underneath and be fine.

I bought this jacket as a back up softshell jacket for skiing, and when I tried it on, I regretted buying it. The sleeves are very thin (I'm 5'9 and 160lbs), its a struggle for me to have a fleece and a base layer underneath. You can also forget about using under-sleeve gloves, this jacket doesn't have cuff straps. I'm thinking about returning this before this next season starts. If you were looking for a jacket that you'd only want a baselayer on, then for the money this is a good buy! (I bought it for $80 on sale but if its not on sale I wouldn't waste your money)

I have heard from various sources that the baron is more focused on the downhill performance compared to the dynafits which focus more on skinning performance and comfort. If I was planning on using these for that much resort skiing, where weight isn't a big variable, I would go with the barons.
