Wore these socks today at Park City, they fit nice and snug. It rained all morning and because they are so thin they don't feel soggy while they are wet, they also dry real quick. Overall it is a great sock, gonna pick up a few more pairs.

Have had these a couple of weeks now and have had a couple major rides with them. They are nice and light, breathe well and the chamois is solid. They take a beating, had a major wipe out last weekend on the Wasatch Crest Trail and they held up just a couple of scratches but no major tears in the fabric. Bottomline I would recommend these to a friend.

Would wear these everyday and everywhere if I could. Performs extremely well in winter conditions and are great for apres activities. A plus for this shirt is that it actually looks decent unlike most of the other long underwear. Merino is the best hands down, doesn't hold stench, dries extremely quick and most importantly you stay warm when the shirt is wet.

I started out using these primarily for skiing, and have since been wearing them for daily use as well. I was in Jackson two weeks ago and went from skiing to walking around town. They were completely dry, between sweating and the concrete wet spring snow. Very soft therefore they are very comfortable, the merino wool is a major plus because it is stench free. The only thing I have noticed is that the legs are a little long. I am 6'2'' and the legs are a couple inches long but that is minor, performance is much more important.

The Best
5 5

Personally I am not a huge fan of some North Face gear, but this is one piece of TNF gear that you cannot leave behind. I currently have three pairs, love them!! The pants fit me perfectly so they don't drag in the mud over hiking shoes I wear a 36x32 and the Large/Reg fits perfect. Personally the best part about these is the length of the shorts, they rest above the knee so when you are hiking and large steps are required the shorts don't rub your kneecaps until they are raw. And for the detailed oriented person the zippers are color coated so you can quickly figure out which pant leg attaches to which side.

I went and hiked up Mt. Olympus yesterday and this performed perfectly. It is very thin so you get the breeze which helps cool you down. The long sleeve keeps you warm when some gusts are a little cooler. The fabric dries extremely quick which is also a major advantage. Bottom line if you want a lightweight performance shirt this is a great choice.

Simple yet very nice. I like the fact that the shorts are a little shorter so when you are hiking and have to make big steps you can do so without material dragging over your knee every time. Love convertibles, can start off in the early morning hour wearing the pants, as the day heats up just switch to the shorts. Material dry's fairly quickly, overall great product.

This light is handy for going really light/simple early rise day hikes. Also great just to have in your daypack as an emergency backup. I bring this along with my other Petzel headlamp on trips. This one is small enough that I usually sleep with it around my neck that way if I need to grab something or get up during the night I know right where it is. Overall it is simple, efficient and does its job.

Great
4 5

First off I really love this pack, the suspension system is great the pack truly is part of you. I took it on some harry trails in the ADK's with about 40-42 pounds in it and it was awesome. Hardly know it is on your back, holds all my gear. The only drawback is the access, not 100% sure how I feel about the main compartment, it is fine when you are in camp but can be a pain when you need to get something while on the move. The compartment is not very wide, I had my sleeping pads and tent on the outside to accomodate my bear canister and other supplies inside. Overall Gregory kills it with the suspension system. Very satisfied overall with this pack.

I have had this helmet for a while now and you can't ask for much better. It has been through the circus a few times and is still like brand new. I have goggles from Oakley, Smith and Dragon no problems with either fitting the helmet, The brim is great little feature but the adjustable vents get my vote for kickassness! on those warm spring Utah days, just slide the vents open to let your head breath and get a window seat for the ride down. On the next day when it is dumping like it is February just close the vents and go for it. Awesome helmet. I would recommend to a friend anytime.

This is a solid goggle to have in the arsenal. I have the fire lens and ski with it on those blue bird Utah days. Overall the goggle is great. I have a smith Variant helmet (L) and the strap on the goggle is pretty tight but there is still some room for stretch so it is not extremely tight on my face. The strap graphics are a little lame, would have been nice if they were straight red or solid red on black but that's minor. Overall if you have a larger size face go for the splice over the crowbar.

Love it. I wear this all the time. Very nice, clean and looks good. Only draw back is the sizing. I am 6'2" and have pretty decent sized shoulders and a XXL is fairly tight throughout the back, chest and arms. Fits me perfectly but if you are on the large side you may want to look else where. If you think it will fit I would highly recommend it.

In my opinion this is the best binding on the market. So good, I went out and bought a second one. If you charge hard and ski just about everywhere possible this is the binding for you. I ski Snowbird/Alta and the binding never complains. Each set is mounted on a pair of hellbents, the original 122mm underfoot and this seasons @ 132mm underfoot. Bottom line if there is a mild chance you think this is the binding for you, get it, you won't be sorry. Ski that pow!!

This tent does the trick if you are looking for a relatively light weight solo stay. I used it in the ADK during the summer and it did it's job. Typical one man tent the rain fly doesn't go all the way to the ground but it is close enough. I am a pretty decent sized person and the tent is just roomy enough for me to lay down inside and have an inch or two to spare on each end. Vestibule isn't huge but it is enough to keep things dry and not on your lap. Overall this a nice little tent.

This jacket is great. I have used it in several different time zones and temp ranges and so far it has been great. Extremely light weight and packs down to a crazy small size. When I was home I pulled it out of a stuff sack before I went outside and my family couldn't believe there was a jacket inside.
The hood is nice because it is not massive so it keeps your head warm by not letting air escape. I bough an XXL because I have wide/broad shoulders. Upper body wise it fits great. I have to synch it around the waist to make it look like it fits me but it still works all the same. Definitely would recommend this to a friend.
