If you buy this bottle, just know the cap will break into 2 pieces. 1 will be the metal, screw-in plug that will become your functioning cap. It will have a razor-sharp edge on the top...enjoy that!
Backcountry acknowledges the issue but does not carry the plastic 1-piece top that KK makes. Once you replace the cap, with that one strait from KK, the bottle will last forever and taste great!
My dad struggled with foggy goggles his whole life. Both before contacts, when he had to wear glasses under goggles, and even after. He sweats a lot and this leads to foggy goggles. Cat crap only did the job for so long...
The weight of the fans and batteries is negligible and with these he has had NO fogging problems!
Rack is easy to slide into the hitch and does fit in there a little loosely, but the threaded bolt holds it in well. Adds about 15 seconds to the installation time. A little difficult to get the bikes on the rack because of the anti-sway cradles; again adds about 10 seconds to getting the bikes on...
But my beef is with the make of the cradles themselves. What is with the hard plastic? I scratched my brand new bike in 3 places (the 2 top-tube cradles and the seat-tube anti-sway cradle) using this rack. The straps are rubber and stretch, which is good because I am forced to put a shop-rag between the bike and the cradle to prevent further scratching...
Get the comparable Thule, the cradles are rubber(they also fit a bigger diameter tube), so your bike wont get scratched up.
I'm on my third pair! I lost the first pair, broke the 2nd & got this 3rd pair thanks to the easy warranty! The user friendly lense interchange hasn't led to a pop-out problem if they are dropped; the lenses stay in place unless I take them out.
The only issue I have had (& I had it on all 3 pairs) is that the rubber ear pieces will come unglued and come off. This is fine with me though, actually makes them lighter and they still stick on my head with no problem when skiing, hiking or mtn. biking. I will only ever use these glasses!
I got mine a little over a month ago and, contrary to the description, it came with the Hydrapak bladder...the one that is described on the DaKine website.
Not much to add. Easy to adjust, size-wise, angle and brightness. Bright and light enough! Can't miss!
Not really sure about the spoiler look, but it functions great and covers further down the back of the head. Also the rear adjusters are easy to use work well!
These pedals have plenty of platform to function without being clipped in. You'll be fine with sneakers or any other "normal shoes!" But you already got the pedals, so you've found this out by now...
A little pricy on backcountry, but jump at the SAC price! As the other reviews state, this jacket rocks and handles just about anything you can throw at it or on it. The only drawback is the lack of adjustable wrists, but it would not prevent me from getting this again!
On the backside of the outside of the helmet carry (the side that is up against the top of the helmet if used like in the picture on Dakine's site) has a pocket. That pocket has a tough foil-type lining, there is no mention of this pocket, which is great, but what is the purpose of the lining?
Plenty of pockets for stashing stuff where you can get at it quickly. Love that there's a separate area (with a hanger) for the bladder. The description says it's a Nalgene reservoir, but mine came with a Hydrapak 100oz bladder, which is great b/c you can turn it inside out to dry it fast.
I'm using these as my all-around mtb glove and they have good knuck & palm protection. They also look better on then they do in the pics. Would be a 5-star review b/c these gloves are great...except that after only about 6 hours riding the silicone dots that provide a little more grip on the 1st 2 fingers have started to come off. Wouldn't stop me from buying another pair tho!
