No complicated review necessary. Wear it alone or under a shell, this fleece gets the job done.
These boots are a great option for lots of different situations. They are dressy enough for my office with a pair of casual dress pants and a nice shirt or they can be casual enough for jeans and a sweatshirt. They have proven to be waterproof and very warm, almost too warm. The traction is amazing. The sizing is true and these are very, very comfortable. My only complaint is that in some light, the brown color can take a purple hue. I'm hoping that they will fade and that will go away over time. But it is not stopping me from wearing them. I highly recommend if you're looking for a 'dressy' yet very functional boot.
These things are great! They are the most comfortable sandal I have every worn. They don't take much time to break it and the leather has stayed nice for over a year and a half. These are a little pricy, but worth it in my book! I also have the regular (non leather) Fanning and I think the leather ones are more comfortable than the regular ones. Oh ya, and there's a bottle opener on the bottom!
I don't have a recommendation about L of XL, but I can tell you that I am 6' 140 and the Medium fits me pretty well. It might be a little on the short side, but not too short. I will say that it is a little tight through the armpit area with a thick layer underneath (like a sweatshirt). It depends on whether you want it to be an 'athletic' fit or a loose fit. Depends on personal preference. If it doesn't fit, send it back to BC. They will exchange it, no questions asked. Hope that helps.
What is the difference between this Brono jacket and MH Alchemy jacket?
I have owned these for about a year and have no complaints about them. I have found them to be sufficiently supportive on mild hikes and day trips. They are great to wear when water is expected, river crossings or rafting and canoeing. I also wear them while taking casual bike rides because my feet can breath. The soles have a decent amount of traction, wet or dry.
These have continued to get more and more popular for a reason!
I just got this jacket and really like it! But I was curious what the point and reasoning for the 'double' cuffs. Can someone help me in understanding them and why they are a good thing? Thank you!
I have several pairs of these and they are all I ski in. It doesn't matter whether its -30 or +40, these socks keep my feet comfortable. They fit pretty true to size. You definitely don't want to go too small. Constricted feet=cold feet. The extra layers of wool in the important areas of the sock really work to minimize ware on your shins and feet. Great sock.
These are great. They are my favorite pair of sunglasses. The optics are Oakley's typical great quality. These fit my face really well and stay on top of my head while in doors or not wearing them. I sometimes forget that they are up there. I custom designed them on Oakley's website with the Ice Iridium lenses. These are not polarized but with the Iridium coating, they reduce glare pretty well and are great in bright light conditions. The lenses are pretty easy to swap out and change. These are awesome shades for athletic pursuits!

I bought these mainly for casual wear and because they are a relatively inexpensive polarized option. I really like them. The optics are the typical Oakley high quality. Polarization really works to reduce the glare off of water and snow. My only have two complaints about these. One is that I can't wear these with a hat on. I have to tilt them to get them to fit over a hat and this causes them to not fit right. Second is they put a little pressure on my temples when I wear them for more than 4 or 5 hours. They are just a tiny bit too tight in the temple area for a long periods of wear. But other than than those two minor complaints, I think these are great. Very happy with yet another Oakley product.
Are these the best option for a pair Volkl Kendos, 170? I don't need anything fancy. I won't be out of bounds or touring. Thanks.
I agree that the Kendos might be a good option. I loved them in variable conditions. I am 6' 140lb and the 170s were great. Because you are a little bigger guy and from a race background, maybe the 177s? It is a mostly a matter of preference. I would also suggest taking them out for a demo. Good luck!
This is a great water bottle. There isn't anything that I don't like about this water bottle. I take it everywhere. The bite valve doesn't spill and can be opened with one hand easily. This allows me to take a drink anywhere without fearing spillage. A goat sticker graces this bottle nicely.
How much insulation does this jacket have?
Suggestion on size? I am slim build, 6', 140lbs.
Thanks for the help!
I own three of these. They are up for anything you want to do. I have worn them for hiking, skiing base layer, and everything in between. My experience is they fit true to size. Very light weight, comfortable, and fast drying. I highly recommend them.
