Ok, firstly if I could give it 3.5 stars I would (assuming that 3 is average). I got this pack because my buddy carries an older version and it seems like Dakine's construction quality has slipped a bit (which is why it doesn't get 5 stars). To continue, the buckles that wrap around to the back of the pack end up digging into your back a bit when you carry skis (why it doesn't get 4 stars).

That being said, I would never go back to my old pack, it is the PERFECT size for light back country use and resort skiing if your going to head out of bounds. The balance of the pack with skis on it is good, and the nalgene pocket on the side is nice. The back panel opens which gives acces to your stiff without having to take your skis off. The goggle pocket on the top is great for hikeing, so you don't fog your goggles. I am sure this bag will rock for what I'm going to use it for but would change a few things if Dakine asked me.

I bought these shoes in an effort to make my transitions next season a little bit faster. I haven't yet had a chance to ride them yet but can already attest to how incredibly easy they are to get in and out of.

Pros: Main strap "locks" open due to a notch on the strap making it stay open during the sprint through T1. They are super light, and look better than they do in the picture. Oh, and they feel stiff as ... well very stiff.

Cons: My only concern is that the main strap is backward to what i think it should be, but still works. I'm unsure of how comfortable they will be on longer rides as they don't totally close due to their strange closure design (no tongue). If there isn't a fallow up report, they are as close to perfect as I want them to be.

All things considered: Interesting, worth a try, and I have to give it to Adidas for pushing new ideas in cycling shoes.

I would say that this parka would suffice for any outdoor enthusiast. It moves well, not quite like wearing a trash bag (but close). If you live in the outdoors (i.e. guiding etc) you might want to spring for a higher-end jacket. I've used this jacket for running and its breathability is more than acceptable, but why are the pit zips down by the wrist? They dropped the ball on that little move. The Gear/$ ratio is great. Enjoy.

As the title says, you get the point. That is why this hat made my day. I'm moving from Montana (dry) to England (wet) and knowing the conditions I would be in, I went rain gear shopping. This hat is 100% waterproof and breaths better than my jacket (from what I can tell). I also use it when it's not raining when I'm out running biking or climbing just to keep the sun out of my eyes. This hat is a great move for those of us who wear glasses. Keeping the lenses dry is always key to being able to function outdoors. GO MARMOT!
