OK, first the good: These are super -comfortable and really secure. I bought them because they are really low-profile and work well under a moto helmet. They don't come out of my ears while I'm putting my helmet on or taking it off. Exactly what I needed.

The controls are excellent. Volume, pause/unpause, next track, previous track. Everything you need at your fingertips.

The bad: The bass response isn't great, but for this price, what do you expect (I guess). It's not terrible - you can still hear where the bass is supposed to be, it just won't blow your mind when you throw in some hip-hop or dubstep. The other not-so-great thing is the instructions, or the lack thereof. You're on your own when it comes to figuring out the controls. So I'll help - click the center button once to pause/unpause. Click it twice for next track and three times for previous track. Volume is self-explanatory.

Overall, I'm super-happy with these. I gave them 5 stars because of super-clean sound, and I kinda figured the bass wouldn't be anything amazing at this price.

The question you have to ask yourself is, “Do I want to be comfortable hiking or do I want to be comfortable sleeping.” I chose the former when I headed out to hike the AT. I decided that saving money and weight were more important than having the super comfy sleep setup. I'm glad I did. These pads aren't all that comfortable but they weigh almost nothing, cost very little, and are fine swinging around on the back of a backpack rather than inside it. I got used to slightly uncomfortable sleeping pretty easily and I think the payoff was worth it.

I've never been a giant fan of Oakley products but these goggles may have just changed my mind. I got my first pair of A Frames despite the fact that they look really cool and just because at the time, it was a really good deal. They sucked. They fogged up every time I put them on. It turns out that Oakley had a problem with their coatings that year and quickly fixed that. I got another pair this year and they are great. I've never had my new ones fog up at all and the lenses seem to be relatively scratch resistant (for goggles). They fit my dome perfectly and I really don't see any need to switch brands again. Good stuff, even though they look cool. Hopefully I'm the only person who notices that.

I've had my rack for 5 years and 3 cars now and it's been absolutely great. These crossbars are super super strong. I've loaded these things up with 100's of pounds of gear and driven across the country--they were flawless. A friend of mine in NC even rolled his car with his racks on (not on purpose) and the rack held up. The roof didn't. I was pretty impressed. I couldn't tell if he was...

These work surprisingly well except for a couple of shortcomings that I can see. They are truly a bastard to pull apart (as are most skins). But that comes with the territory. I wish they were made for each size of split board, instead of just two sizes that are too short on purpose. Also a clippable tail would be a cool addition, too. Other than that they work really well.
