Familiarity: I gave it as a gift

I bought my Dad this jacket as a gift and he loves it! Goes great for shoveling the driveway, getting the newspaper, sipping coffee, and grumbling about the stock market being down. Classic Dad stuff. Or, if you're like mine, it's great for wearing under a ski shell and slaying on cold powder days. Whatever you feel, it's a classic.

Cover it with your own stickers, but avoid that perfectly placed Goat on the side of your brand new nalgene. Trusty, durable, and shows off your true Mountain Man. Or, if you're not into munching granola, climbing rocks, walking on dirt and getting snow in the face, put stickers on it anyway and pretend you do!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Hero 3+ is a good step up from previous models. I have tons to say about it, but I'll keep it short and just list my favorite improvements and features of this camera:
-The lens is slightly bigger than the regular Hero 3 black. This increased the sharpness of the image quality a fair bit.
-Audio recording has been improved
-It is much smaller and lighter than ever
-The battery length is 25% longer than the Hero 3 black
-It is only slightly delayed (maybe 1/4 of a second) on the live preview on the GoPro app compared to about 3-4 seconds on the hero 3 black.

These are my favorite features of the 3+ black. I have been using GoPros for several years and they just continue to get better. I am a cinematographer and use these all the time, so if you have any specific questions for me, don't hesitate to ask!

This is the perfect helmet for anyone who complains of helmets being too bulky or heavy. Wearing this, you'll think you're just wearing a beanie with the same protection of a helmet. 100% recommend!

Fit: True to size

You will never wear another pair of gloves again after wearing these. They're a workhorse- strong, incredibly warm, and made of the best leather out there. Whether you're summitting Aconcagua, trekking across Greenland, or ripping a big mountain line like Seth himself, these are the gloves for you.

I'm on my third pair of these shades. (Left the first two in public restrooms on separate occasions... don't ask). They are magic, that's why I keep buying the same ones. The only reason I give them a 4/5 instead of 5/5 is that the screws can get loose and the arms swing in, marking up the lenses. Other than that little problem, these shades are the ones for you. Prepare to spit some mad game!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this jacket just as a casual wear and I really like it. The material is sleek and the design is pretty sick. The 686 lettering on the front of the blue and black jacket is difficult to see. My only other complaint is that this jacket does run a little big. Normally I wear a men's L and large was a bit big on me for this jacket. It does have a handy Ipod/Iphone pocket with an interior spot for your headphones to run through the jacket to your ears. Perfect if wearing this for some springtime shredding!

I love this pack for inbounds and light backcountry trekking. It holds all you need for light trips. I can easily fit my shovel, probe, goggles, and extra layers in there along with some GoPro camera gear despite the small size of the pack. I own the size M/L and it fits me perfectly. I'm 5' 11" and weigh 155 lbs. The pack is soft and comfortable and doesn't even feel like I'm wearing a backpack while I ski. If inbounds, you can sit on the chairlift just fine without feeling like you're getting pushed off the lift by your pack. Overall awesome!
