LOVE these jeans!
5 5

These pants fit fairly well. I am overall happy with my buy. I have larger-than-normal calves, so the slim fit REALLY holds on tight making it hard to throw them off quickly if the occasion calls for it. (I.E. Accidentally spilling gas out of my custom sheep dog-van and then try to light a smoke for a pretty girl who owns skis [BOTH OF 'EM] and drop the match on my recently soaked jeans. Thereby catching them on fire)

I love my bombshells! I own a bombshell jacket and loved it so much I bought these bibs. I wanted something I could go through deep Utah powder in and not get snow down my shorts. These are awesome! The bib keeps out all snow -even after a ridiculously gnarly biff- The only thing I want to stress on is that you need to wash the bombshell jacket (as with all shells) to keep their waterproof rating accurate. Dirt particles get trapped inside the fabric and decrease it's integrity. Washing with some Nikwax TX Direct Wash In (type NIK0038 into the Backcountry search bar above) will keep these bibs brand new! I paired mine with the patagonia capilene 2 bottoms and stayed warm all day boarding in the SLC mountains.

I'm 5'11" 180#s, I went with the Medium and love the sizing!

Bottom Line: If you enjoy freezing cold showers, avoid these. If you enjoy staying warm and dry, these are for you!

These are amazing. I have never had a baselayer, and never thought I'd like them. But I splurged and bought these and i am glad I did. They do not bunch up when I'm on the mountain all day and they don't compress to the point of blood loss- which was my main concern because I have giant legs- I'm 5'11" and 180#s I bought the Medium and I love them. I wouldn't want any other size.

I paired these with the Stoic Bombshell Bibs and was absolutely warm enough to ride all day in 20 degree temps. (I'm stay warm easily, though)

Bottom line: Keep your boys from freezing off with these.

This thing ROCKS! I keep it in the car and play around with it every time I drive. It's great for those days when you just need to feel the burn, or for a nice warm-up on your way up the canyon. My only wish is that BackCountry would carry the other strength levels. This is the easiest and it would be nice to be able to push myself a little harder.

Bottom Line: figure-four out of the cave without worrying about crushing your skull.

Maybe a bit too much like an old pair of shoes
2 5

I bought these shoes in may, they fit like a dream. I was stoked that I didn't have to go up a size to account for my wide foot. The ball of the shoe seems to have been made to accommodate a wide fit.

The elastic band around the ankle dug into my Achilles tendon pretty bad. But I eventually got used to it.

I had to return these when the toe started to fall apart. I bought them May 26th and by June 10th they were falling apart. I heard a rumor that Merrell was recently bought by a larger company, so I will be pursuing other brands.

Overall- I loved that right out of the box these fit like and old pair of shoes, but then they started falling apart like an old pair of shoes. Not impressed.

I love this bottle. It keeps my coffee steaming hot for around 6 hours. (not that it ever lasts that long) This was the perfect compliment for my Stanley mug that I have. Now I have my first and second cup the exact way I love it when I leave in the morning. This bottle is the one I use for a warm up, or to throw into my backpack for a non-leaky coffee that I don't have to hold in my hands.

Glorious.

I love it! from practicality to aesthetics, this bag is awesome. I wasn't sure if I should buy this bag or one with a double strap, but I realized that I NEVER used both straps on my old bag. So I went with this. I am extremely happy with the size of the tarp attached and the little window in it lets me know that I'm just a little bit better than by buddies. In all- this is an excellent choice!

I love this rope! It has everything it says (as far as length and thickness) My only surprise was that it is a bit stiffer than I was hoping. It's not super stiff, just more than I had thought a 9.8 would be.

It is a bit twisted before you flake it for the first time, but really not bad. I am very happy with this purchase.
