Matthew Van Wagner's Bio

I grew up in New Hampshire, went to college at Virginia Tech, lived outside NYC for a bit, then moved west to Salt Lake City. Although my degree is in Architecture, I've been bumming around the Wasatch for the last three years trying to wrap my head around these amazing mountains. I moved out here to backcountry snowboard, so that is my main focus right now.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This pocket multi-tool is a little heavy to be an everyday pocket resident, but that's not what I got it for. Great for its size, price, and durability, and there are so many times I can remember being very glad I gave it a permanent home in the glove box. Fits well in my very average-sized hands, and opens/operates as well as it did when I bought it (2 years ago).

This is a definite upgrade from a 3yr old Marmot Variant. Same quality, same fit (tight in arms), same awesomeness. I am 5'10", 165 lbs and wear a medium but could definitely wear a large - if you are in between M and L I would go for the L.

got this for the lady, and it makes her meow. A little pricey for what it is (a good all-around women's board) but if you're looking to upgrade, or have some loose cash, go for it. She is mostly out of the park, but likes having something that she COULD run some rails with (not gona happen).

I am 5'10" 165lbs and the 32x30 is perfect in length and waist. These pants are really durable, have some stretch for pedaling, and look just as good off the bike as on. I try not to wash them too often because I've heard they loose their water-resistance, and when I do I use "active wear" washing liquid (same stuff I use for my bibs). Really comfortable and versatile, 45 degrees is my cutoff for whether or not I wear tights under them.

This is a must have on your winter bike commute, if you're into that kind of thing. Fits in most bottle cages and provides you with warm caffeine, which is more important than water when it's 15 degrees and you can't feel your feet because you forgot to wear thick enough socks.

Good small/mediumish packing

These are a good way to get the backpack off your back - I've found they pretty much fit what I could stuff into a regular-sized backpack. Good in the rain, and really stable on the rack with the lower velcro straps to help keep them tight to the wheel. Very easy to pop on and off - I use them with a PDW rack.

I never have any idea what to get my mom for occasions, but this was a good find for a "vacation" present. It's nice that it only comes in one size, and it has a cool, understated, French Riviera steez. Don't understand the string thing, but without it, the hat would look odd
