I am a big Scott ski fan and the Dozer does the brand proud. I ski Alta and mostly on the weekends and this is my one ski. Wide enough to be fun in powder, but not too wide for less than powder days. The Dozer is super forgiving too.

Almost everything about this jacket is awesome. Shell is tough as nails. Snow, rain, ice, sleet, and wind are going not coming through. No clammy steam box on the inside either. Just the right amount of pockets, not too many or too few. The only exception to this jacket is the sizing. I?m 6?2, 230lbs and I picked up the XL. I tried the L too, but it was too snug for any base layers and pulled a lot in my shoulders and upper back. The XL is awesome in the shoulders and upper back, but the torso is really big. Plenty of room now for layers, but it?s almost too much room. Still a winner for me and a keeper.

Looks and fits like a great Marmot jacket, but I had to pass because it is insulated. Both the description and the tech specs don?t mention that his is an insulated jacket. Based on the jackets weight I?d guess something close to 100g of primaloft. I found the fit true to size for Marmot. I?m 6?2, 230lbs and the XL fit well with room for base layers. If this jacket had no insulation I?d be sold.

This is my second Helly Hansen jacket and I am very impressed with their quality, fit and durability. The Helly Tech water proof is awesome. I have skied this jacket in white-out conditions and went home bone dry. The only fault and the reason I?m returning is because the jacket is too warm for me. The jacket would be great if you are in temps 15F and below, but even in the 20Fs I was opening the pit zips to cool down. If it had half the insulation I would keep for sure. Fit is true to size, but the cut is loose.

The Hydry shirt is awesome. If you looking for a warm weather shirt that is a step up or collar up from your average technical T look no further than the Hydry. I have worn this at a 95 degree, 95% humidity Oklahoma golf course and in 95 degree, 25% humidity Bell Canyon Utah and felt comfy all day and everywhere in between. Plus no funky smell! Fit is true to size. I am 6?2, 230lbs and the XL fits awesome.

I picked up the Windridge shirt for warm weather hiking and working out. So far no complaints. The fit is athletic, I?m 6?2, 230lbs and it is a little snug but what I wanted in this shirt. No issues with snags from the wash or the brush. Another key feature which is not specified is this shirt does not hold the funk. If you have owned several tech shirts you know what I am talking about.

I have been using these poles all year and I cannot believe I never used trekking poles before. I have taken the Syncline poles on day hikes only, but so far so good. The locking is secure from snow to dust with no slippage. I would say the grips are just average, but not a big deal for me. The tips seem indestructible no matter how many rocks I hit with them too. I have seen these poles on SAC and a shocking low price so if you see them?buy them!

I?ve had the FT7 for about 5 months and so far it has performed as expected. The watch itself is very light and sits easy on my wrist. The chest strap is comfortable as they come. Over all the heart monitor functions are useful with a short learning curve. My only gripe is if you tracking a workout, I?m unable to switch to the stopwatch and vice-versa. Overall not bad and serves my purpose.

My inner hippie really loves these pants for their 100% recycled construction. The fit is pretty good, except I returned the large for an extra-large. The large was a little tight in the waist and crotch, but nearly perfect in the length. I’m 6’2, 230 and typically go with a large in ski/snowboard pants. Lots of pockets. My only grip would be the pants do not breath as well as I wanted.

I picked these to replace the pair I left on the top of my car. The old pair was last year’s Work glove and frankly I liked the older style better. The differences are subtle, but this is still the best pair of ski gloves out there. Plenty warm, waterproof and durable. My only grips are the gauntlets are little awkward because they are too small to fit over most jacket cuffs and almost too big to fit under.

What is the verdict on groomers? If it has been few days since a decent storm, I’m likely to do high-speed laps on groomers all day. Will the P4’s behave themselves?

I picked up the Prodigy to reply my aging Phonemes. I was a huge Phoneme fan, but I have to say the Prodigy is my new favorite. I wear them with the Holt helmet and the overall fit between the Phoneme and Prodigy is about the same. The difference really comes from the pressure on my nose. I have a big dome and a big nose so nearly every pair of goggles I’ve owned puts pressure on my nose. I can still feel the pressure with the Prodigy, but it is much less than anything else I’ve worn. The range of view is a little broader with the Prodigy, but not significantly. Overall a great goggle for those of us who have a less then petite face.

I wear this as a mid-layer over a lightweight merino wool top and it does an awesome job of temp regulation. I’ve worn it skiing in temp ranges from single digits to upper 30’s and felt comfy the whole time. The weight was much lighter than I expected, which was nice surprise since I was not sure if this would be too bulky as a mid-layer. The size is pretty true. I picked up a large and an extra-large to see where the best fit would be. I’m 6’2, 220 and the large was okay in the arm length, but tight across the chest and a little short in overall length. The extra-large is on par with other XL’s from Patagonia. Great layer all around.
