Minimal wind resistance can not be underestimated. I drive long distances with and without the bike and my gas mileage stays down. The only problem I have had is that the little piece of plastic fell off the back and I lost the ratchet to hold the back tire down. I called a gearhead and the hook me up with Thule directly to get the replacement pieces I needed.

The designers at Thule are fantastic. I have these attached with the Crossroad Railing Foot Pack. This keeps my load bars close to my roof keeping my MPG at a maximum. They are impossible to steal which is also comforting. If you want a great rack for your road bike, try the V2.

I am so impressed by this Carhartt jacket. With winter taking hold I have just a little yard work left to take care of and I wouldnt want to work in my ski jacket. The active jacket is a great piece for getting dirty and gettin er done. My garage is cold but houses all my tools, and without my carhartts I would be stuck inside with my wife like a scared turtle.

There is something rewarding about being comfortable while I work. It is especially rare when the weather is piss poor and I would much rather be at home. I feel comfortable enough in this warm and durable hoody to help keep me going until at least lunch time. The only other jacket I need is the Active Jacket.

This is a great pack for small trips outside of the resort. I ride at Brighton near Salt Lake City, and most of my days are spent out on Pioneer Ridge from the top of the Crest Express lift. This pack fits my skins, shovel, probe, saw, water, and a snack. I can strap my collapsible poles to the side when I no longer need them. Or my splitboard quickly to the back panel for a quick boot pack.

What can I say, I like moving snow. There is no other reason to have a shovel. I get nervous when someone busts out their gardening tools and thinks that they could dig me out if there is a problem. I call bs. I need something durable with leverage and good grip. I wear mittens on cold days and have no trouble with the assembly and usage of this shovel. I used to have the wood saw inside the handle but got rid of it when i bought the g3 bonesaw.

I have used several beacons and this is the easiest to use. Although i personally use a different piece this is the one I bought for my brother. I feel safe in his novice hands with this beacon, even though I let him lead the way on most descents. We have been practicing a lot lately and his skills are improving much more rapidly than mine did, and I am positive that this tool is an integral part of his rapid discovery. I hope to have many more days with him.

Personally I am a fan. This is a great tool for snow science. One of my favorite features is that it has a measuring grid on the side. As we all know, snow is constantly morphing due to temperature changes. I used to use the plastic case that my magnifying glass sits in or a plastic card to look at snow crystals, but the variable speed that they degrade was sometimes frustrating. The beauty of the aluminum is that if you keep it out of the sun it will be nearly the same temperature as the snow which is good for a quick analysis of crystal types.

Other than that I think it is perfect for cutting a profile, building a table, or cutting a small cornice. The handle is great and doesn’t slip out of my glove.

Thank you for another innovative design!
