I like everything about this pack - you have two bottles - hwich you can fill both with water, or one with water, one with gels. There i a nice sized pouch to throw keys and some extra food or small gloves in as well. I usually use one of these with water, and the other with gel, and then carry a nathan quickdraw as well. Perfect size, and stays in place pretty well when running on any terrain - trails, downhills, etc.

I like these for long runs as they are pretty easy to both carry, and break into while still on the move. Not the best tasting or easiest to eat (a little chewy), but they do offer a ton of options - caffeine, extra salt, etc, which are nice for ultra distances or hot weather in the summer.

I tried these shortly after they came out and love them - What I like best is that they pack some calories but seem to stick in your stomach for a while without feeling heavy. I break into one before a long run and they seem to last longer than having gels, but sit better in my stomach than a lot of bars. Great tasting too.

I was looking for something similar, and got this jacket last year. Used it for everything - hiking, bc skiing, resort skiing, around town, snowshoeing, etc. the pit zips do a great job from a venting perspective - its a longer jacket as well, so the coverage is good. I am 6'1" as well, and use the large- its roomy for layers underneath, but not too big. the hood is helmet compatible.

This is a great piece to wear on those bitterly cold days underneath a shell for added warmth. its nice as a standalone around town as well. adds so much warmth for such a compact size. I think thats my favorite thing about this- it adds a ton of warmth, but doesnt add bulk when you are wearing it, or if you throw it into your pack.

This is a great ski for all uses. You can rip through pow and mixed snow, but it still performs great and can carve on hardpack like a race ski. Hard to explain, but the ski just feels really springy and playful under foot- maybe the bamboo or just some other aspect of the construction, but it makes the ski seem really fun.

This bin is great. I can keep the full quiver of skis in it, have easy access from both sides. In the summer, I can store all of my camping gear to not take up the space in my xterra if I need more room. I can easily carry 8 pair of skis in the bin. I have used it for four years now without issue.

this shoe is great if you like a light weight show for moving fast on the trails. I have tried other light weight shoes, and what I really like about the MT100 is that the forefoot is protected from sharp objects you often step on - rocks, etc. i have run trail marathons, ultras, etc, all in these shoes with no issues. i notice a bunch of folks have complained about the ankle/heel pocket - I havent had any issues, but see where you could.
