Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

I used these yesterday at Mad River Glen and the temperature was 10 degree F, with a 10 mph wind. After going back one slot on my boot buckles, my feet were extremely warm and comfortable all day! I always get cold toes under 20 degree, not yesterday! I am buying more of these!

This is a nice double layer clingy base layer, not really compression clingy, but just enough. It has a nice interior which feels delightful against bare skin and a smooth silky exterior so layers slip right over with no effort.

Great helmet!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this helmet last year and love it! I have the skullcandy speakers and a bluetooth adapter which makes this thing ROCK! The smith I/O goggles are a perfect fit. I have done a lot of bushwacking with this helmet and is has held up nicely.

These shirts are awesome! I bought 3 large and 3 extra large. I am right on the L/XL fence and both of these shirts fit well. I am 5'10" 206 Lbs (of solid muscle:) and sometimes large shirts can be too tight around the chest area for me, the stretch very nicely and feel like you have nothing on! I wish the shirt was one in longer in the Large size. The XL is too big for me but have become my around the house shirts. @ 12 bucks a pop these shirts are a STEAL!

One shirt is getting a little beat up from doing some light carpentry with it. The polyester is piling after a few months.

I was pumped to get these, but when I put them on I quickly realized how uncomfortable they were. There is WAY too much foam around the nose cutting off my breathing through said orifice. The other Glaring fault is the lack of a tacky rubber substance on the inside of the strap. These goggles are the KING of frustration when they slip all over your helmet and end up flapping behind you going down the mountain.

So I got some scissors and rubber cement to "fix" the shortcomings of the goggles. The nose part is fine but the rubber cement sadly did not work:(

I did change the lenses out with no problem, they are very easy to change out. I do have a lot of changeable lenses in my life though.

The next thing I am going to try is fitting a new strap or a bunch of rubber bands on my helmet:)

Really comfy helmet!
5 5

I just went to The Big Box sports place and left with this helmet. It was the only helmet that really fit my fat head. Apparently I'm an XL, but the K2 helmet fit perfect in a size L/XL.

The graphics are subdued but hip enough for me, The shape of the helmet is nice and the mini lip is yet another subtle but nice difference from a standard helmet.

The helmet sits nice and low, maybe a couple millimeters too low. The audio sounds pretty good but the volume is nothing to get excited about. The volume control on the chord is flaky and needs to be removed so I'll probably cut it out and re-solder the audio cable. Cause I know I do nothing but break things on the mountain.

Other than that, I look forward to wearing it this season.

Pray for Snow!

Eric
