Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Another killer hit from the L1 stash. I could go on all day about how epic the style is of this jacket, and completely space it on all the great technical features. This is not L1's "premium" (most expensive) jacket, the waterproofing suffered a bit, a few mis-stitchings, but being hand-made is what ya get. If you want some generic neon-orange garbage bag to wear then go check out Neff. Best feature aside from having a "street style" and great fit would be the duel zip and velcro cargo pockets. I've fit seven beers in this behemoth, I don't think you could say that about a Marmot jacket...

Half tarp, half mysticism.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Magic Tarp-it is another well thought out product from the trustful and insightful company, "Poler". Being 6'3" The tarpit covered from the hooded head down to my ankles. Length, hood and hand holds are the extreme selling points on this thing. During our stormy adventure it began to rain, the tarpit was delicious to have to protect from wind and rain. The underside is space-blanket reflective and was a great piece of insulation

For the bold and unsure

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Not sure what to pack for an over night hike in-hike out? Unsure of what to wear when sleeping in a hammock rig? Or are you just lazy and desire to be naked for when times get chilly? THE NAPSACK IS ALL THIS. "Poler camping stuff " is a grassroots company that wants to apprach camping differently. Being different is good people. Wear a sleeping bag. Snuggies can go to hell. This is light-years away from a television offer you'll see at 11:00pm.
In my camping adventures, this thing weighs less than oh.. 4 lbs, comes in a small length-wise travel bag, (no longer than a sleeping pad) and kept me alive in 32 F. Bag is rated to 50, great in 40, ..but wear some warm clothing in something less. Support functionality and flexibility within your camping supplies. People will be jealous my friends, so keep an eye after it. :)

YES, it's a Hawaiian flower shirt!..wait no? Exactly, no, it's better. It's wispy and MEGA-lightweight, the sleeves are perma-rolled up, and the print is eye catching. Just ask the 30+ people that have commented on it, or said they "almost bought that at urban". Set the style and power clash like Jack Donneghy's tie and shirt in 30 rock. OUT!

This is MY favorite of the entire Altamont collection for summer '13. The fabric is stiff and unforgiving, but it provides reassurance that it isn't cheaply made. The print is straight from my parent's living room rug. It's not a cheap vans hawaiian shirt, it's wayyyyy better. Same Altamont fit, M was riding the lines of being too small in the shoulders for me 6'3", so L works perfectly.

As you look upon this shirt, a fry meme might pop into your head. "not sure if mega-ugly, or just trendy and contemporary." It's 80-20. Altamont provides amazing material, thick and sturdy, ready to be abused during the summer months. Being 6'3, a L is perfect, I like my stuff slimmer, but this is a great length and doesn't look like I'm falling out of it.

As the title should indicate, this hat is probably my favorite in my collection. The material is like a five panel, super light weight and thin. The hat keeps it's shape because of the mesh panel (like a trucker hat). The final blow is the sick patch on the hat. It's not an ugly brand, quite the opposite. Reminds me of a merit badge from boy scouts.

Boots seem to find their way on the end of the list when it comes to getting new ski equipment, if you are a total pussy and care about if every body part feels comfortable, you probably wouldn't throw yourself down a slope on waxed planks of wood in frigid weather.
When my old boot linings officially "crapped out" on me, I went to these boots. I needed a boot intent on keeping its integrity in the park and hitting steep lines. These boots kill both aspects while feeling responsively tight, and comfortable. Simple design, fully customizable if you are feeling prissy, and LIIIIIIGHT.

I don't have a doctorate degree in binding engineering, but I know what holds me in when I ski really hard. These do. The green color on the plastic in the back where you push down with your poles is chipping away, but its aesthetic, these are super light and have SUPER wide brakes. specifically the 130's for my 132 pontoons. hooray!

This shoe is glorious. Enough said right? Not really, this shoe dominates because of the specific details that you search for in a shoe for ripping on a bike. This shoe is geared for biking, being that the sole is thick and sturdy, and the canvas its made of is SUPER waterproof and hefty against toe cage bashing. With that being said, its low profile, has two great color schemes, it's something you can wear around town, unlike their line of SPD compatibles. Chrome has stated that these run a half size larger than your normal sneakers, which is quite true. I got an 11.5 to have my toes comfortably in, the 12 allowed too much room. (wayyy too sketchy riding without brakes and not having complete response in your pedals) Ultimate decision - great looking, incredibly functional in areas that other sneakers can fail in, (terms of biking) and you'll notice your feet will feel LOCKED IN.

You'll get some snarky comments and condescending stares from hip trendy fools that put brakes on their bikes, but this bag feels great and is VERY functional. The bag has hefty waterproof cordura, and the tarp liner is a lifesaver for cleaning and for not having a soggy back if stuff spills or sweats. It also creates a huge stash pocket also, handy for sneaking your "water" into concerts or what have you. Specific U lock pocket, the quick release, and color scheme are just icing on the cake.

Okay skullcandy, we get it. Your lifetime warranty is needed because they will break down. Lets hope this pair breaks that stereotype eh? So far so good! The flat cord is nice and doesn't catch on much. The rubber ends feel quite comfortable in the ear, and lets face it- these looks pretty sleek for 30 bucks! These have taken a lot of tug and rough love, and so far the sound is still crisp and static free.
