Matthew's Bio

I can't stay indoors for long without the need to exert myself outdoors - especially in the winter. I am a photographer so I am often outside for long periods of time. I'm also an endurance runner, climber, snowshoer, camper, mountain biker, and more! Visit my photography site at www.trappephoto.com.

Tried these goggles out in Vail a few weeks ago and they were outstanding. The vision was perfect in the sun, they fit my face well, and had no problem attaching to my helmet. This is my first pair of goggles that I've owned and I did a lot of looking around but am extremely happy with my choice.

This pack is outstanding for a long run when lots of water is needed. The 2L bladder provides plenty of water and the slide top design is very easy to fill and to dry out afterwards. The pack keeps the bladder from bouncing around. Sometimes the pack pulls my shirt up in the back but as soon as I sweat a bit it the shirt stays in place. The pockets on the front are very convenient for some snacks or chapstick with room to spare. The clasp across your chest is easily adjustable but I find it could use two straps - one higher and one lower on my chest to really keep it all in place. It is a minor concern though. I have not had any rubbing at all from the pack and have taken it on several runs of 20+ miles. Overall a great water pack when my water belt just isn't enough.

These are the worst gloves ever. They are not warm and they will be soaking wet after just a couple ours out in the snow. I always bring these because they are the only pair I have but I always end up borrowing an old pair from a friend before it comes time to hit the slopes because these are so bad. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone.

I got these on clearance a few years ago and while the construction is solid and they do the job they are too long. The bottoms just hang on me while the waist fits great. I am 5'11" 160lb. The pockets are easy to access and there is enough room to store my wallet, phone, an energy bar, chapstick with room to spare. The adjustable waist is helpful depending on how layered I am on that particular day. All in all these pants are decent for the money but there are much better pants out there if you are willing to spend just a bit more.
