Josh Chapman's Bio

My name is Josh and my primary activities include snowboarding, camping, hunting, fishing, and hiking. I have been snowboarding for well over ten years and lived my whole life here in Utah. My season pass of choice is usually Snowbird. If I'm not at work or school you can usually find me dickin' around in Mineral Basin. I also like cold beer and cheap whiskey.

Go Niners!

The secret stash pocket sticks out a bit and is sort of annoying. I also found that the sleeves were a bit large in circumference which made the fit a little different in your lower arms. Other than that, the hoodie is really soft and has a classic look to it. It gets the job done. I'm 6' and 165lbs and I bought a L. It fits pretty true to size.

In my opinion, cotton/poly blends are the only way to go when we're talking about a fabric that will potentially be in contact with your chesticles. The 50/50 blend is ultra plush on my sweater puppies and I love it. I'm 6' tall and 165lbs and the large was a bit too small for my liking. I got the XL and it fits great but I definitely can't dry it. What else is there to say about a hoodie? Oh yeah, bewbs.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

The debate has raged on since the inception of boxer briefs, over the fence or through the gate? I'm here to tell you that there is only one way to take a piss, and that is not on yourself. For those of us that don't like to make decisions, the Ethika DPM Boxer features no crotch opening, so you'll be going over the fence for all of eternity (or at least until you change your undies).I found these extremely comfortable and breathable, which is really all you can ask of these hybrid huggers. They are a bit longer than expected, but I dig it. I'm 6' tall and they fall about 3" above my knees. I highly recommend these undies, so stop thinking about peeing and just buy em' already.

Another sizing note, I buy my jeans anywhere from 32-34" in waist and I bought mediums---they fit great.

I just got these so I really can't attest to the durability. However, they sound great, look good, and are comfortable in my ear holes. The cotton thread cord cover looks rad and keeps these headphones from getting tangled up in your pocket. I've gone through a lot of earbuds in my day, and for the price, these are the best.

PS, 2 extra (1 pair already on the earbuds) tips included for sizing.

I have the Atlas Super Pro's as seen in the OG photo up above. Essentially the same binding, aside from highback. These and the Force are by far my favorite bindings out there. They literally do it all. You can terrorize the terrain park on slushy spring days, gape out the groomers and punish powder---whatever you want to do, the Atlas will allow. Lightweight and durable is the name of the game and the cap/strap toe is sick IMO. I know some people don't like it but it fits my boot profile fine as a cap without any slippage. Highly recommended.

The Annex has been my favorite pant for years and Special Blend has done nothing to change that this year. These pants, by far, provide the most features of any pant this price. Classic snowboard styling that isn't overly baggy. Super long inseam for us tall folk or those that just like the extra length. Really soft hand to them and a comfortable lining. Velcro waist adjustment and ample cargo space for carrying your favorite beverage. All in all, insane pant for only $180.

Love this jacket. Luckily I got it the day before we had about 8" come through with a high of 7 degrees Fahrenheit. This isn't the best jacket for a powder day but it certainly kept me warm. The only reason I gave it 4/5 is the lack of wrist gaiters, no belt loops for the powder skirt and no routing for a media pocket. I was able to use the zippered interior pocket just fine as a media pocket by zipping it up most of the way, but was still kind of a bummer. I still am super siked on the fact that I have an insanely warm jacket for really cold days at the Bird that is also waterproof. I love the styling too, definitely can get away with wearing this around town no problem. I'm 6' 165 lbs and I bought the XL (I like the looser fit). However, the Large would have fit perfect for someone about my size that doesn't quite like them baggy and still wants room for a bit of layering. I highly recommend this jacket.

I unfortunately didn't realize how sick Salomon boots were until a few years ago when I bought some F22's. I road those for two seasons straight and destroyed them. When I saw the F3.0 coming out this year, I knew that was the boot I wanted. I admit, I was skeptical of the lacing system at first. However, it only took a few days for me to become a HUGE fan. I love to crank the lower zone down super tight along with the velcro strap, then leave my upper a little looser. Its super quick and easy to do too. Also, these boots give me the least amount of heel lift I've ever had. If you have a lower-volume foot and a mid-to-high arch, these will fit great. I was able to downsize to a 10.5 (street shoe 11.5-12) and they fit perfect after a bit of breaking in. They feel pretty stiff out of the box but after some good hard days of riding, they will feel great. I highly recommend these boots for ANYONE. Park, pow, all-mountain, groomers, etc...doesn't matter, slays it all.

I don't wear these for long trips or usually even days in a row so drying/stink hasn't been an issue with mine like some of the other reviews. I use mine for day hikes, trips to the dog park, floating the Weber, and even fly fishing. I don't necessarily recommend them for fishing as they can be very slippery but it's something I've learned to deal with. For the other activities these are great. Very comfortable, true to maybe a half size small.
