Gordonlightfootsbiggestfan's Bio

I really dig skiing deep deep powder, and have done so in Utah for the past five years. I miss my old XXX Bandits and am pining for a replacement of these all mountain bad-asses. The Watea 94s I demoed a few times last year may be just the answer.
I have recently taken to cruising around the streets on a touring bike that feels like I am riding around on a plush 70s era couch. My advice, get a steel bike and take your time, you will find yourself smiling a lot more.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I wear an 8.5 or 9 shoe, the medium size of these fit very nicely. On both long hikes and every day use these socks have performed very well. The cushion makes all the difference in comfort, and they stay up nicely, not falling around the ankles as lower quality socks may. Highly recommend these socks.

I wear an 8.5 or 9 shoe, bought the medium socks and they fit great. They stay up above the calf, I have had no issues with them falling to my ankles.
My use has not been too heavy, a couple of short hikes and a few days at work. They seem like they will get the job done for years to come, well constructed and comfy are the keywords for these socks.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I use these pants for work in the warehouse, day in, day out during the colder months. They have been quite durable, as there are lots of sharp corners to get caught on at work, but I have not had issues with rips. The heavier gauge cotton helps in this regard, as well as helping to keep me a bit warmer in the cold warehouse.
I have also used them in getting yard work done, in this regard they perform well.
Finally I have gone through the Northwoods of Wisconsin with these, chasing after birds. They held up well there as well, though some of the tougher prickers would penetrate the fabric, but then aside from heavy gauge hunting pants there are few pants out there that will stand up to all those thorns.
This is my third pair of these pants, and my one issue I've had was catastrophic crotch failure (at work, both unfortunate and hilarious) with one of the pairs. They had seen a lot of days though, and though it would be great for a pair of pants to last forever, that just isn't realistic.

I recommend these pants.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size

I got this as a gift for my mom and she is liking it thus far. Her use is around town, and she likes the cut for bopping about, as the cut is not athletic. She even said, "I like how it fits a short, chubby person." Her words, not mine (she's a wonderful lady).

She likes the hood, finds it very functional, fitting nicely over her hatted or non-hatted head. Also the pockets are nice and deep with handy and well designed pulls.

As for warmth, it has stood up to chilly temps, but truth be told she doesn't really venture out too often in the bitter cold, and if she does she has a warmer coat for those occasions. Most of her winter is spent in Utah, so there are cold days, but not Minneapolis-Alberta-Clipper plowing straight through to your bones for weeks kind of cold.

Overall she really digs this jacket, and she and I find the purple/dahlia white colorway very nice.

I purchased these as a gift for my father and he is loving them. I have had a pair for several years and they have held up very well, being used skiing, cold weather biking and general cold-weather hijinks.

They hold up better than a pair of 200 weight boot-top skivvies I've had for several years. It has been my experience that the heavier the weight of the merino the longer they will last. That could be me treating things wrong, but I usually follow care instruction pretty well.

Bottom line, you can't go wrong with this pair of long johns.

I purchased this to be a lighter softshell, an alternative to my fleece backed softshell that I have love but is for colder weather. It has worked well in just the several uses it has seen, including casual (temperatures of 50ish) and biking (temperatures from 35-45F). I am 5'10" and about 190 pounds, the large fits nicely, it seems to run a little long (good as I am long in the torso). Looking forward to more use, and I consider it a good value.

I purchased one of these for myself four years ago, I still use it on every bike ride I take. The rides are plentiful, including commuting, pleasure crafting, and a few tours; it has held up very well to all of this use. I am 5'10" and 190 lbs., I wear the large, it fits snug but not tight and I can wear it over just a t-shirt all the way up to a fleece backed too-big-for-me softshell jacket. I have bought two more since to give as gifts, the recipients have been pleased as well. An added wonder is the extra room many motorists give a wearer of this vest as I have ridden just a handful of times without this since it's purchase, people give people without this vest less room on the road, it is a fact. A wonderful product, safety first is a good policy.

I purchased the larger three foot variety and found that it worked great set over a National Forest Service fire ring. Need to get the fire down pretty low to do the grilling, it can be difficult to be attentive enough when it's dark out and several beverages have been enjoyed. It gets hot. Highly recommend this beauty.

I have had a pair of these for just about a year, and they work great. They work well for skiing, tucking nicely into my icebreaker ski socks that I also enjoy. Also I use them on my cold day bike commutes under my soft shell knickers. A bit on the pricey side, but they look like they will last for several more years, a good investment indeed.

This bike light is perfect for around town riding. The battery charge lasts for upwards of 2 hours, good for two nighttime commutes for me. It is small, packs in my pannier top pocket easily. The size should not fool you though, it lights the road well, able to avoid the nasty potholes and road flotsam out there. A great light for the price.

I found these skis to be adequate, but I was not blown away by them. With so many skis out there, I think a ski needs to excel in one direction. Should it be for powder, park or all mountain; these skis are good, not great for all concerns. 104 in the waist is a wash for me, I float just as well with 95 underfoot, but lose performance that I get with a 10mm skinnier ski. They work well for everything I reckon, but don't knock my socks off at all.

They worked well on the groomers and busting through crud. I skied the 174s, which suited me well, an advanced skier of 190 lbs. at 5'10". Did not get to ski powder with them, but imagine they would float pretty well with the girth. One of the points I really did not dig on them was the weight. They were just a bit too heavy, especially skiing them in a 174.
