Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

For starters, this shirt looks rad as hell.
RVCA has always had simple, yet interesting designs with their clothing.
This is awesome for the slight resemblance to a hockey or old school soccer jersey.
I was slightly worried about the fit, but that worry was gone as soon as I wore the shirt. Fits to your body, the sleeves don't flap in a weird position or sit flared at all.
I was tempted to get more of this shirt, but decided to let all of you jump on em before it's to late.
Don't disappoint me!

Oh.. P.S. Did I mention Sean Malto wears this shirt?!
Yeah, I thought that'd do it for ya..

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've always owned a pair or "Krew" pants for as long as I can remember..
They've always been the leader of pants to skate in for a solid 10 years for me, and it's rare that i've worn anything else.
The reasons being are..
Number 1: Owned, designed, and worn by professionals. (Watch any skate video, you'll understand).
Number 2: Lightweight, breathable, stretchy, and fitting. The 4 things to make skating in these pants a breeze.
Number 3: They look amazing! ha just by wearing these pants, you're skating will look flawless, even if you suck. *Don't fully believe number 3..

Again, if you skateboard. Get these pants, help yourself do the right thing here! ;)

Bombing hills? Yeah, me too!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've absolutely had my experiences of going over the average speed of a longboard.. One thing I wish I was able to experience at those speeds are this board right here! This board sits low, holds tight, and hawls ass!
It's perfect for attacking those hills that you've only imagined taking over. With this board, there isn't much out there that is "impossible" for this to take.

It has a solid and strong deck, with some concave to help you control and feel your board much better. The drop through trucks place you closer to the ground, decreasing your very very small chance of getting speed wobbles.
And the length of this board sits comfortably in the middle of "short" and "long". The length is a good transition from your long "rocket" longboard shape. It's long enough to give you good balance and stability when riding fast, and short enough to be aggressive enough for you late night parking garage shredders.

Over all, this is capable of handling some jaw dropping hills, and uh.. It looks damn good! Very well made, and looks more like it's a piece of art!
I definitely recommend this board if you want quality, a long life out of the board, and something different than the rest. (*cough* sector 9 *cough*)
It's original and well worth the ride!

Extremely warm, remarkably light-weight!

Fit: True to size

This jacket is great! It provides extreme warmth, and offers practically no weight. It is a perfect jacket to wear as a mid-layer for any outdoor activities. I wear it under a shell while snowboarding. And while I am very warm, I do not need to worry about getting cold from the small chance that you will sweat. Due to how breathable this jacket is, I've felt comfortable in any condition i've been in lately. Also, with the breathable material, it regulates your body temperature keeping you feeling comfortable and cozy indoors. The fit is true, except for the center back length being slightly short compared to the sleeve length. But, with this being a jacket mainly serving as a mid-layer, it works out just fine in my opinion. And hey, it's not that much shorter, it still holds a damn good look and fit!
Overall, if you're not wanting to spend to much, and don't want a over puffed, heavy down. Here you are, a proud recommendation!

So a T-shirt is pretty basic to review. But if you want a good feel and look, all while wanting to rep Backcountry.com, you've got yourself a winner with this shirt. The fabric feels amazing, and I love the look. I've had fellow BC lovers ask about it, and get it themselves.
So if you love BC, and love good fitting/looking shirts. Well.. you've got yourself a no brainer!

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large

This jacket has it's ups and downs. I love the fit and feel of the jacket. I got an XLT and am 6ft 140 lbs. (I wear larger than normal). It fits taller than normal, but width is true for it's style. If you are wanting to layer for insulation, most definitely go up on size. It fits tight and slim. I would not recommend wearing this in wet/snowy conditions. But for a blue-bird day, this will make for a perfect jacket. The jacket is very light weight as well. Overall.. If you are in the market for a good spring or sunny day jacket that looks good and feels better.. This is a great jacket.

I bought this pack for mostly everyday, get around pack. Fits everything in and fits snug. Does not bulge at all, the inside pocket is great for phone/wallet/keys etc.. The pack can fit the necessitates for every day or riding for sure. I took it up boarding and it worked better than I imagined. The board stayed put on the pack, was extremely comfortable, and did not cause pain on shoulders from the weight of the board. It fit my camera, snacks, and extra jacket in as well. It did take some maneuvering, but worked out great in the end. This pack is definitely a good choice for a fairly inexpensive pack that will exceed it's limitations in what ever it needs to do.
