Josh's Bio

My name is Josh and my primary activities include snowboarding, camping, hunting, fishing, hiking and climbing. I have been snowboarding for over 15 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!

Hey there,

I did a quick Google image search for "Lowepro Rover Pro 35 AW Bag" and there were a lot of photos of the inside of the pack. I didn't want to steal anyone's photos and post them here, but I recommend you do the search.

The two main things I look for in a glove are fit and durability. These fit great out of the package, in my opinion, and have held up very well thus far in our early season. It didn't take long at all for the leather to soften up and the insulation to pack out just enough to provide that custom feel. The leash provides peace of mind when cracking a beer on the lift and the 100g of insulation is plenty for most days at the Bird. Like most reviews though, if you're gonna be in single digits or less you may wanna pick up a liner too. All in all, super solid glove.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

I bought this for my mom for Christmas and she absolutely loves it. She couldn't believe how warm and light it was. The face fabric has a really soft hand but does give off a decent amount of shine when dealing with a lot of light. I can't help much with sizing as I won't venture to guess height and weight of my dear mum, so I apologize for that. I can say that she had been trying on many comparable jackets from the competitors (namely, TNF), and said this was by far the best quality.

Sorry for the random sizes, but I've managed to get together dimensions for three of these:

60 liters- 22? long 10? deep 15.5? wide
90 liters- 25? long 12? deep 12? wide
140 liters- 28? long 12? deep 18? wide

Hey Owen,

Unfortunately we cannot ship O'Neill outside of the United States. We can ship some brands to the U.K though. Please visit the link below or just go to the bottom of the page and click "Help Center", and then "What brands cannot be shipped out of the US?" for the complete list.

Hey,

Yes, we have a bunch more on the way. Hard to say when they'll be in for sure but I'm betting sometime in November.
