DIANNE's Bio

Pretty much just love getting outdoors, be it flicking around my mountain bike, casting a line, hunting Whitetails, or simply headed into the backcountry, the works.

One of the best for the price
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This helmet for the price tag, out-performs itself. I have used it on 30minute DH runs and on 2hr Enduro style rides and it's light and comfortable enough that I can forget about what's on my head. Vents are well placed and keep you as cool as you can expect from a full face helmet. Barely needed any break in time, was comfortable right out of the box. No pressure points and fits my Smith goggles comfortably. The chin strap has two metal D loops and so far have not had any issues with comfort or it loosening as I ride. Bottom line, is for the price you get a helmet that beats out some that are higher marked, so don't let it's humble $$$ sign deter you. So far it's solid and feels like it will keep my head that way too :)

Makes a Good Ride Even Better

I've used this jersey a few times and it has been a great choice so far. Wicks sweat really well, doesn't ride up or chafe, has a super unrestricted yet flattering fit. Pretty much it's an all-around shred ready jersey. I'm around 5'2" 120lbs and got the small.

I bought this jacket for fishing, but have ended up using it for everything from running, mountain biking to everyday use. It has a flattering/active fit, the sleeves have plenty of length and allow tons of mobility. The fabric is light weight yet very durable, it wicks sweat and repels rain extremely well. I'm around 5'3" 120lbs and got the small. Can't say enough great things about this jacket, wouldn't change a thing and highly recommend you get one!

I completely agree with lynn's review, the sleeves on this hoodie are snug. I LOVED the color and the fabric (except for the stretchy side panels which made the hoodie too drafty and started to show wear after a couple uses) The thumb holes are awesome, but the sleeves are much tighter than any other UA hoodie I have owned. Better luck next time.

I purchased this on sale from my local fly shop. I know it is "kids specific" but this vest fits petite women very well. All the other fishing vests I tried, I was drowning in literally! I'm 5'3" 120lbs and it leaves plenty of room for a shirt and jacket underneath. Has a lot of really well placed pockets without extra bulk. All around a pretty cool little vest.

Love these things

I'm running 26" 2.6 front/2.25 rear Maxxis Ardents on my current AM bike and prefer them over the High Roller II which had been my tire of choice, simply because I think the Ardents have more feel and more grab. The sidewalls are very forgiving, but super tuff (taken out a few nice rocks with them :/ and they just scuffed with 30psi). I've used these on fast single track, park riding and freeriding in everything from super slick clay to dry shaly conditions and they give unsurpassed grab, especially when laying down the hammer when cornering, these tires are like confidence pills. Bottom line: Get em.

Fit: Runs small

I liked everything about this hoodie except the arms. They were too skinny and felt very restricting. The fabric felt similar to softshell which I really liked and think this hoodie is built to last a long time, but I would suggest ordering a size up. I'm 5'3", 120lbs purchased the XS and the body fit perfect, but the arms just weren't comfortable for me, so I returned it.

I really wanted to like this hoodie, but after wearing it only a handful of times, the fleece on the outside and also inside of the bottom hem started to pile super noticeably. Pretty disappointed in the quality of fleece, but otherwise it fit great and the color rocked. I'm around 5'3", 120lbs and the small fit comfortably.

Keeps your chain where you want it :D

I only ride 1x setups and have used this on a couple bikes and it goes above and beyond its duty in keeping that chain in place, park riding and AM hitting rock gardens at speed and it never even blinks, pretty impressed with how it sheds mud in rough conditions as well. Good going E thirteen

One of the best purchases I have made. Super comfortable and super tough while looking really good. I've used them for park riding/DJ and All Mountain and these out perform any other AM or DH short I've tried. All around Awesome.

I've used these pretty much every ride-able day this year for AM and Park riding and no complaints. Rock climbing grip, all-around super tough shoes. Five Ten rocked it and thanks to backcountry I got them for a heck of a deal :D
