The Oakley Jupiter sunglasses work really well and have typical Oakley style. Like all Oakley products the Jupiters are high performance. The lenses as well as the frame are durable and are clearly well made. In my opinion, these sunglasses will have the best fit on someone who does not to have too large of a face. The design closely resembles the Oakley Frogskins. I have them in polished black with the black iridium lenses and I do not have one complaint. Oakley continues to impress me with their products.

This ski performed well and was fun in all conditions, from carving fast turns on open groomers to bumps to powder. With a fairly wide 101mm waist and tip rocker the ski is fun and nimble in pow. The rocker also helps in almost all other conditions. It is quick and responsive as well, which is why it is also good fun in bumps and trees. You can also carve nice turns at fast speeds with the Shogun as well. Although these skis are decent in moderate amounts of powder, if you have a really deep day you will probably want something wider and with more rocker. As an all mountain ski the Shoguns are one of the best skis I've skied all season.

This ski rocked! I demoed it one day last week at Snowbird and it was great. In the 10-12 inches of fresh pow they were nimble, stayed afloat over the deep snow, and the tips didn't dive under thanks to the rocker in the tip and tail. It performed really well in the pow. Aside from its great performance in powder/soft snow thanks to its width and rocker, however, the other awesome thing about this ski was its versatility. This ski carved big turns on groomers and even skied some medium sized bumps well. I'm not sure how well they would do in the icy big moguls though. Overall I really enjoyed the ski and highly recommend it as an all mountain powder ski.

These skis are awesome! They can do everything and do it all well. A mid-fat waist of 95mm and a bit of rocker in the tip and tail keep this ski afloat and nimble in the powder. These are also super fun on groomers and can ski the hardpack fast and carve nice turns all day. When it comes to bumps and tight turns these skis are still top notch. They are quick edge to edge and I really liked them in big bumps. These things also rock when it comes to hitting jumps and getting air. This is a really high quality and performance ski that is a real quiver of one: Powder, groomers/hardpack, bumps, park, and backcountry.

I had these mounted on the skis I used last year (they were Dynastars). The DIN on these only goes up to 12, so if you are looking to really crank your binding you will want something else. I had these most of the time around 10, but sometimes higher, so I often had them at their limit. They did their job well and kept me in unless I really needed to come out. Overall they were a very good and strong pair of bindings. They aren't the lightest bindings I've ever used (compared to some of Salomon's like the STH 14 or 16 and Marker's griffon/jester) but their weight was fine as well.

These poles rock. They are super light, have an awesome grip, very strong and durable, and to top it all off have a really cool graphic design. You can take these anywhere on the mountain and they will perform magically. The baskets will also get you really far in all conditions. This is up there for one of the best poles I have ever used. Scott scores big!

These are flat out great ski pants. They have a baggy comfy fit but at the same time perform very well. These pants have insulation in certain areas to keep you warm but also have some venting if you feel as though you are overheating. Also, you will stay very dry in these due to the great waterproofing. These are great in all conditions from wet conditions to deep powder to really cold ski weather. The combination of insulation, waterproofing, and it being breathable gets the job done.

I have a pair of Oakley Crowbars with High Intensity Persimmon lenses, and I wanted to get an additional pair of lenses that would be great for those bright blue-bird days. The High Intensity Persimmon lenses are really good in a wide variety of conditions, but one of the few if not the only weak spot of the lens was that it isn't great for really bright light. So I got the Fire Iridium lens and it is great for those sunny days. These lenses are not that hard to replace, just be careful when handling them and avoid touching the inside part of the lens.
