Joey W's Bio

To those who have struggled with them, the mountains reveal beauties that they will not disclose to those who make no effort. That is the reward the mountains give to effort.

And it is because they have so much to give and give it so lavishly to those who will wrestle with them that men love the mountains and go back to them again and again. The mountains reserve their choice gifts for those who stand upon their summits.

-Sir Francis Younghusband

Been eyeing this little thing for a while and finally pulled the trigger... cant believe i ever waited to buy it, this thing rocks! Its extremely compact, rugged and very easy to setup and use. The sound quality is phenomenal and can't believe how loud it gets for such a compact piece of technology. I have not tested out the calling feature yet, so we'll see how that ends up working. Is it a beats by dre pill? No. But is the beats by dre pill $250 better? not a shot. Great bang for your buck product (no pun intended). Overall, very happy with this purchase!

This is a gorgeous bike pump. I never thought I'd say that about an air pump, but the black body with wooden handle just looks very nice. The pump is strong and the presta valve attachment is great. One problem, that cost this product a 5 star review, the hose is just too short. It might not be a problem depending on your bike and size but my size large santa cruz bronson has trouble with this product. When I flip the bike onto the seat to pump up the air, the hose barley reaches the rear tire nozzle but it works. It does not reach the front tire at all. honestly less than 2", its frustratingly close... Anyways, great product with a short hose, id probably buy the non-travel version just for the longer hose if i had a chance to re-do this purchase

Liberty was generous enough to leave a pair of these at Backcountry HQ and I was lucky to get to take em out on a deep day in early March at Alta. That being said, I only had one day on the skis so keep that in mind as you read my review.

Hopping off the chair for my first lap, these were solid. Lots of flotation and easy to make long turns. Really liked the flex pattern on them as well; not super stiff but also not a floppy noodle like most pow skis are becoming these days. Didn't think they were the best in tighter areas of the mountain but they weren't horrible either. Where I really felt this ski was lacking was chopped up powder. I'm not talking crud, just 2nd and 3rd's on a powder day, they weren't phenomenal. I wouldn't say they were bad in the chop, but I've been on skis that have a similar level of powder charging to the double helix but handle chopped powder better.

Like the description says above "heli skiing in bc?", if the answer is yes then this is for sure a solid choice. If you're gonna be getting sloppy seconds by 11am on a powder day then you might want something that can handle the chop a little better. Overall great powder ski.

Bought this as a holiday gift for my cousin, he had some thoughts to share:
"This jacket is awesome. I was having difficulty deciding between the Rust and the Black colors but am very very happy I went with the Rust version. The color is perfectly understated and already has that built in slightly faded kinda style. The fit is also spot on. I like my jackets to be long and normally that means getting a 2XL which ends up being too much material. This cut is long and slim, perfect for looking stylie both on and off the hill."

Purchased the Aloha colorway for my brother for Christmas. HE LOVES IT in both a real and ironic kind of way. He has been using it for everything from just lounging around the house all the way to a layer under his ski jacket on those especially cold days. The build quality is what you would expect for a crew-neck sweatshirt, seems like it will definitely last for a couple of years with moderate use.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

While goggle companies are fighting over who has the best lens changing system (Oakley included), there must have been an "ah hah!" moment in the Oakley labs. Why change lenses at all? Let's just build a perfect lens... and they did!

I have been using the Prizm Black Iridium lens for about 6 or 7 ski days now. I have experienced pure white out conditions all the way to bluebird sunny skies and never once felt like i needed a different lens which was surprising cause this is one of the darkest lens' in the Oakley spectrum. The prizm works shockingly well and I highly recommend paying the xtra $ for it.

In addition to this amazing new lens, they have an awesome new frame to pair it with, The Flight Deck. It has an extremely wide view, with very little peripheral vision cut off. It also breathes and avoids fogging very well.

Overall, I am in love with these goggles! Excellent work Oakley!

Note: It's a very large frame, smaller faces might not be able to handle it. My big head does not have this issue...
