Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use a lot of this base prep to keep my skis gliding fast. This base prep sits on my skis all summer and soaks into my bases and makes for a great first layer for waxing. This is basically a super warm condition wax and can also be used to hot scrape and clean bases too. I have used just this base prep wax in the warm slushy spring snow and it worked great. This is my first layer of wax that I use when waxing for colder conditions as this wax allows the colder, harder waxes to stick to it and the base much better.

Fit: Runs large

Very nice shell Jacket. Pockets, Zips cuffs all in the right spots and well designed. This jacket runs a size big. I usually wear a large in jackets like this and settled on a medium in this jacket. The freeride crowd that wears clothes big and baggy would probably be happy with the "Progressive (loose) fit" but I didn't want to wear my tent around the mountain so I sized down and love it!

This is actually the third rack like this I have owned and they have worked well. The T2 is a bit utilitarian but it does what you buy it for and hauls bikes. I have driven thousands of miles with bikes on this rack on paved and dirt roads and it has held onto my bikes every time. The cable lock is all but worthless and I usually use a long cable and pad lock when I need to lock bikes on the rack. The rear wheel strap is a bit tricky to use and I know several people that have lost or had the straps stolen but so far I still have both of mine and once you know how to use them they do the job. Also the T2 worked with my truck and let me lower the tail gate without interfering unlike the Yakima hitch rack I tried out.

I have been using this in the back of my SUV to hang this and that up out of the way. It has been super nice to hand my mini lamp from when I am sleeping in the back of the SUV. I would not ever think to use it for climbing but for the tent or car it is a great thing to have hanging around

Small, simple and works great! This isn't a head lamp for hiking trails with or climbing a mountain but for rummaging around in the tent, cooking dinner or reading a book it is the light to get. The only thing I dislike is that it is hard to turn it on or off when it is on your head. I always take it off to turn it on or off so I don't push in into my skull trying to push it on and off.

The Q Towers fit securely on the my truck and get the job done hauling my junk. I don't like the fact that the pads sit right on my paint and are probably scratching and dulling the paint but there is no other alternative other than drilling holes in the roof to mount a rack.

So far so good with these pads. I bought them for the size as two medium pads fit perfectly in the back of my SUV. Sure they are not the lightest or fanciest sleeping pads but for a simple pad that fits me and the space I sleep in they are great! One of them alone also worked very well when I slept in a tent.

These Landing Pads provide a clean simple way to attach the Yakima rack via Yakima Control Towers. They fit nicely to the factory tracks on my Toyota 4runner.
