Comfortable & Functional
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Dalbello Sherpa 2/8 were my first touring boot ever and before that I would always use my alpine boots and expect the same results. Not the case. Having a touring specific boot changed my whole perspective on the sport of ski-touring. After a couple of trips in the backcountry I started wearing these boots in the resort as well because they were so comfortable and functional. I couldn't believe I was able to cut and get as much air in these boots as my regular alpine boots. If you are looking for a boot that does it all, I would pick this. I sometimes wish I never had to use regular alpine boots again so I could just stay in these.

Warm Bottom and Slim Fit
5 5

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

Oakley got it right when they created the fit for this pant. It's snug in all the right places and gives you room where you need it. The material is basically 100% water-proof with Gore-Tex and vents to cool you off. This pant goes great with it's jacket counter-part.

I Won't Take It Off
5 5

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

This jacket keeps blowing me away. I put it on for a day of touring and I think I will get too hot, but the vents work fine and I stay comfortable all the way up, close the vents and warm up for my descent. It's basically 100% water-proof with Gore-Tex and the Bio-Zone keeps you warm all day. If you are looking for a jacket you can rely on, this is it.

Best All-Around Ski
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I still can't believe how much I love this ski. If I had to pick one all-around (touring, powder, airs/cliffs) ski I would pick this one. It's so thin you wouldn't think it would work or hold an edge, but it does and it floats on powder. Because of this ski I have finally enjoyed touring as well. Before my skis were too heavy and I didn't enjoy it. With the V-werks it's as simple as it gets.

His & Her's Backpacks
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I received the BCA Float 22 from my husband a couple years ago because he wanted to make sure I had the best gear to keep me safe in the mountains. I have always skied with a backpack so I was a little worried the weight of the Airbag Feature was going to put me over the edge and not want to anymore. However, that was not the case. Instead I ski with a backpack even more and I am still able to carry all my water and snacks. The next Christmas I bought my husband the same pack and he loves it.

For the longest time I had no idea what this little black cover was for, but when I realized it was the lens cover I never stopped using it. I love carrying a GoPro around with no casing, but a lens cover. It makes it easy to throw in your pocket or backpack and not have to worry about scratching the lens and then pulling it out when you want to take a shot. The camera becomes super small when you do this too.

Surfs Up!

I put this mount on my wake-surf board a couple minutes before I went riding and it never fell off. The GoPro Surf Mount is really strong and the adhesive will not give away.

This Wall Charger is a life-saver when you are on the road or at home. Instead of pulling out your computer every time you want to charge you just pull this charger out. Also, I use it for my cell-phone and every other USB charging device I have.

A Floaty can save a GoPro

If you are in the water a lot with your GoPro you are going to need a Floaty. Once you attack the Floaty to your GoPro Housing you will not be able to get it off, so it's nice to dedicate a Backdoor to your Floaty. I have been on the water so many times and my GoPro popped off and every time I have been able to recover the camera because of this Floaty.

The GoPro camera is actually very tough and as long as you are not skiing through water The Frame works perfectly. Also, you only have to worry about wiping one lens.

The Gooseneck

This contraption is crazy, the mount is shaped like a long goose neck, but I am sure you can find plenty of other names for it. The images you capture with this mount are incredible and would be impossible any other way. In this photo I mounted the gooseneck to my regular helmet mount and pointed the camera just enough at my eyes and I think it turned out pretty nice.

Lightest Way Possible

At first I did not think I would have many uses for the GoPro Frame because I loved the full casing and the protection it gave. However, The Frame makes the camera so light, you do not even even realize it's on your head or in your hand. This is why you see so many pros riding with this frame instead of the traditional casing. If you own a GoPro you will have plenty of uses for the The Frame.

I had the opportunity to work with Oakley to design and test the Lutsen Pant. This pant is designed for someone looking for gear that will last. I have skied with this pant on the coldest -25 degree days and the warmest 90 degree summer day on the Whistler Glacier in Canada. This pant works in all conditions because cause of its water-proof and breathable technology. On the cold days I wear a base layer underneath, close all the vents and ski. On the warm days I wear a thinner base layer and open the vents. If you want a pant that is light-weight and works for both skiing and hiking, this is the pant for you.
