This is a great cozy and warm jacket. It's the perfect jacket for kicking it around town with your buds or chillen around a bonfire for the evening. Great style along with great warmth and performance for just kicking it. The windproof membrane is great for blocking out the wind during chilly walks to the bar or around town. The fitting is a little weird but is actually pretty cool. It tends to fit a little baggy and short but its super comfy and looks good on. Plus you'll have all the ladies wanting to lay their heads on your shoulder. Get one and have a rad time chillen out.

What a great fleece! I wear mine year round and almost daily. Its a great jacket to use as a layer under shells for skiing to heading to your local pub on a cool summer evening. The fit is amazingly comfy and cozy. Another great thing about it is the amount of stretch you get out of it when participating in active sports. All-around a great jacket that I would recommend to a buddy or anyone looking for a great versatile fleece. Snag one for yourself!

Wow, what a ski! I'm about 5'10" and weigh around 185lbs. I decided to go with 182 length mounted with a Duke (to allow for some slack country/short tours) and absolutely love them. Was a little unsure about going with the 182 but after testing them out decided it was the right fit. The 192 length would have been a lot of ski to whip around and since I was just looking to extend/upgrade my quiver these were it. These skis deliver unbelievable power and strength that allows you blow through crud and charge big lines. One of the great things about this ski is the early rise in the tip. This assists in its ability to float in the pow and blast through crud without any or very limited tip dive or catch. While they’re not ideal for tight tree skiing due to their stiffness and long turn radius, you can still get by with them. I would suggest just feeding them big hard charging lines since that’s what they do best. They’re actually really fun on the groomers too. The torsional stiffness allows you make deep hard long turns that even deliver some pop similar to a race or carve ski. I would definitely recommend these skis to a buddy or anyone looking for a powerful ski that can do just about anything.

I love these socks! I've had a pair for what seems like forever. Great for just about anything involving lots of activity. I unfortunately just got a hole under the heel (after lots of use) so am going to have to get another pair. RIP old X-Hale sock. Would definitely recommend to a friend or anyone looking for a great athletic sock. Go get em'!

These are great! I wear them around the house and sometimes on a quick trip to the store. Got them for Christmas and have worn them a ton! The only thing I would warn people about is the low cut side and wearing them around in snowy conditions since snow can easily get in. Other than that they're killer! Would definitely recommend them!

Super sweet sock! You can wear these socks for multiple days without washing them (if you like) and they still fit and support your foot almost like day 1. One of the things I look for in a ski sock is a sock that provides a constant snug fit along with minimal padding so that I may be as close to the ski boot as possible. These socks do a great job in both areas but maybe have a little more padding than I would like compared to other “lite” ski socks I’ve used in the past. It’s nothing that would deter me from wearing them or purchasing another pair but it’s something that everyone should be aware of. I’m comparing these to my SmartWool Racer socks and Bridgedale Heel Fit Lightweight socks both of which have less padding. I would recommend these to anybody looking for a great performance ski sock.

Noticed at the end of last season that my ski pants (Patagonia Rubicons) had lost a lot of their water repellency, so I set out to find a product that would restore their water repellency. The Nikwax TX Direct was what I ended up getting and I’ve loved how great it has worked. Snow/Water beads up pretty well but not as well as a brand new garment. I would recommend to friend for sure especially if they’re looking to extend the life of their gear.

Love this jacket! Perfect jacket for all types of days. Great for warm spring like conditions when you can open up the pit zips to chilly days when the snow gods are puking all over the mountains. The Gore-Tex fabric is awesome! Blocks out fierce high winds along with heavy moisture keeping you dry and warm on the inside. While I don't wear mine on extreme cold days (I use my Down Patrol), It would be able to handle it with enough layers. Do yourself a favor and snag this BAMF (Bad-A**-Mother-F*****)! I love it!

Love/Hate Relationship with North Face
3 5

So here's the thing. I love the look, feel, and warmth of these shoes but I can't stand the durability that The North Face is putting into their products. This is my second pair of shoes from them (first being the Hayden) that I've had horrible luck with the soles coming unglued. Attached is a pic of where they've started to fall apart. They've started to fall apart in same places on both shoes. Lame! I wore them for almost a month before they started falling apart. Great looking and warm shoe but super poor quality. Your call if you want to super glue them back together.

I've had these shoes for just over a year now and really love their style but hate the quality. Within the first 2 maybe 3 weeks the sole started falling off. It could be that I had a faulty pair but I have never had trouble like this with any other shoes I've ever owned. I probably should of returned them and gotten them replaced but I ended up gluing them back together. After probably 8 glueings on each shoe over the past year I think I'm retiring them. Other than the sole falling apart I've loved the shoes. Super comfortable and great for just knocking around at the bar or wherever/whenever. Trying The North Face one more time and picking up a pair of the Snow Sneakers. If their quality is better than the Haydens my faith in The North Face will be restored. Bottom line: cool shoes, quality maybe not so good.

I really like the fit of these but the material was a little rougher than I had expected. I ended up returning them since they weren't quite what I was looking for and got the MK Teton Twill instead. They're a little more comfortable than the original MK. I would get these though if I was looking for a work pant that was better quality than Carhartt. Great pants and company!

Was in the market for a comfortable Carhartt type pant but was a little better looking than your average run of the mill Carhartt. I first tried the original MK pant but wasn't happy with the material (a little too rugged). I figured I should try the MK Teton Twill since they would probably be a little more comfortable and more what I was looking for. Also, I ended up ordering the Teton Twill directly from MK since they offered more size options than BC. When I got them, they were exactly what I was looking for. Provided a comfortable feel and fabric. They also have a great distinct look. Great pants all in all. I would recommend for sure.

Great water shoes! I’ve had a pair of Salomon Amphibians for awhile and they really don’t compare to the quality of these shoes. While I’ve had bad luck with other North Face shoes in the past falling apart on me with 2 weeks these have held up great. I like how light they are along with the drainage through the sole of the shoe along with the sides. They’re a great shoe. The only plus to the Amphibians are that you can slip them on by flipping down the heel piece. Other than that I love these water shoes and would recommend them to one of my buds for sure. Spend some of that hard earned moolah on them cause they’re worth it.

What a great boxer! They’re silky smooth and provide great support. They also do a great job at wicking away moisture which keeps the fellas from feeling like it’s a swamp down yonder. I’ve worn them on a few hikes and they do a great job. But I mostly wear them for softball. They provide great support but could have a little more compression around your quads. I’m also thinking that I’m going rock them this winter under my icebreaker base layer this winter to give the boys some extra support, warmth, and wicking power. I’d recommend them to anyone so get em’, your boys will thank you.

The Exped SynMat has me converted. WOW! I don’t think I’ve ever had a much better sleep when camping minus that one time when that bottle of whiskey was consumed but that’s another story. Give your Therm-a-…something or another to your bud to sleep on cause you’ll never go back to that thin pad that half way kept you comfortable and warm when camping. The extra weight shouldn’t deter you from getting one either since the reward of getting that extra comfortable shut eye is well worth it. You’ll be hooked once you sleep on one. Drop the dough and get one!

I really enjoy wearing these boxers. They keep the boys in place while also wicking away moisture extremely well. I’ve worn them on a couple of hikes and they seem to do a great job. I also wear them under my board shorts and they dry pretty fast. Much faster than anything cotton of course. I’d suggest them to anybody. They also work alright under jeans or pants. Get em’!

Great boot! I love putting these boots on. They are very comfortable and are great for just about any use from the trail to around town. I wear mine almost daily in the winter and quite often in the summer on hikes and at work (I'm actually wearing them now). They're a great looking boot too. Look good with jeans, pants, or just about anything thing if you're interested in that. I would advise that they do take a little breaking in. It took me a few days but they're well worth it once they're broken in. So suck up some of the pain and just do some short hikes until they're good to go. While these guys aren’t the most super heavy duty hikers they’re still awesome and good on the trails! Great boots and I plan on wearing them for a long time with a resole in the future once these get worn down. A can of Obenauf's Heavy Duty Leather Preservative is some really good stuff to put on them to make sure they stay in great shape. Buy em' cause you'll definitely thank yourself later. Enjoy!
