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

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...

I went to South America recently, and while crime in general isn't too bad, theft is certainly something to watch for. This wallet helps keep your valuables out of reach to pick pockets and is very discrete. It holds a passport no problem and has two side pockets that fit currency that is folded in half very well. A nice feature to keep my dollars and pesos separate. I highly recommend getting one of these before your next international journey.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these gloves at the beginning of last ski season and have been beyond happy with them. I use these for touring and they are exactly what I had been searching for. Most lightweight gloves have some kind of caveat, they're too warm, they don't block wind well enough, they don't breath well enough, they're not waterproof enough... You get the picture. Now enters the Venta LT.

The Windstopper material keeps all wind out, which is usually the source of cold hands while touring. Minimal insulation keeps them ever so slightly warm but they breath so well that any build up of excess heat escapes without issue. They are not 100% waterproof but they are close enough for touring. If I do happen to cover them in snow, once I start moving again, they quickly dry out because they breath so well. I am beyond happy with this glove and just bought a 2nd pair as backup in case I lose my current set. I cannot say enough good things about this glove for highly active winter pursuits!

I bought this for mountain biking and have been very happy with this water bottle! The nozzle, is amazing. Hands down, so much better than any normal squeeze top bottle. I usually avoid squeeze bottles due to leakage, but this does not leak at all! The nozzle locks and unlocks with ease and the water pressure is ideal. The insulation works well, but it doesnt blow me away. Ice will melt but your drink will remain cool... Definitely better than a standard bottle's insulation though. Highly recomened this product, nice work CamelBak!

I made the upgrade this year from a 26" Ibis HD, that I really enjoyed, to the 27.5 bronson which I am even happier with! I most definitely have noticed better rolling uphill on the climb but do not feel that the agility on the decent has been compromised. The CTD switch on the rear shock and fork is AMAZING. I have a hardtail when i lock it down, a trail rider when I'm on "T" , and almost a full on downhill bike when I drop it into descend. The one part that I wasnt stoked on were the brakes. These were not my favorite; not nearly as responsive and quick as some of the other brakes ive used. The tubeless rims are awesome and have been happy with the tires as well! Tennis ball yellow is definitely the way to go in terms of color. Way cooler than the halloween scheme on the black version. Get this bike if you are looking for a do-anything, all-mountain ripper and you will not be disappointed!
