Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I have used the Bellows in the cold wet conditions of the PNW for the past two years now and the PNW no longer seems so cold and wet. From bell to bell resort laps to dawn patrol BC missions the Bellows is my go to. The fabric is super lightweight so stashing it in my backpack during tours has never been an issue. Hands down this is the best jacket that I have ever worn. I'm 6 feet and wear an XL.

I have started to get into the habit of bringing the Polar Shift with me everywhere I go. From late night runs to the gas station for "food and water" to long tours into the backcountry the Polar Shift is on my back. As an outer layer or mid layer the Polar Shift can do it all. I wore this jacket all summer at Mt. Hood skiing park laps and adventuring around Government Camp and it was great. This fall I've been using it as a layer under my Bellows and it's even better. The only issue with the Polar Shift is that once you put it on you won't want to take it off!

Having been through a fair number of skis in my time, I have to say the TWO hands down is my favorite. For being 124mm underfoot they are incredibly nimble and can charge all over the mountain regardless of the conditions and the ELP rocker makes them one of the most playful and fun skis I have ever used. From steep lines deep in the Backcountry, to side-country jumps, and all day resort laps with your best friends the TWO does it all extremely well!

This is my go to backpack everyday, whether I'm shredding resort laps or touring into the Backcountry. Having used the 18 I can say that this pack is a huge improvement. The placement of the motor has been redesigned so there's way more room in the pack and I can fit all my touring gear in it no problem. The pack is one of the lightest on the market which makes comfy and easy to carry all day. Overall this is an awesome backpack.

Bibs are so hot right now! People are finally starting to realize that it's not cool to have you ass hanging out all day getting soaking wet. It makes you look stupid and prevents you from spending time on your skis, which are things that nobody wants to do. The Trewth bibs are the best solution to those problems. The slightly baggy fit provides plenty of comfort and room to move. The full leg zips are perfect for regulating your temp. on those long tours in the backcountry and the chest pockets keep all of your precious cargo warm and dry. And of course they come with the TREW's superb durability and waterproofing. Get the TREWTH and have more fun!

The Bellows is an awesome jacket. It's simple and has everything you could ever want in a jacket. The waterproofing and durability is second to none. I've used this jacket over 50 days this year in the harsh, wet conditions of the Pacific Northwest and have been warm and dry every single day. One of my favorite aspects of this jacket is how fast it drys. I can go in for lunch and come back out warm, dry and ready to shred! Get the Bellows and shred longer, be dryer and have more fun than your friends who are foolish enough to wear something else!

The Pow Funk is hands down the best jacket that I have ever worn. It's durable, lightweight, breathable and most importantly waterproof. I ski in the PNW where wet snow is common and I have yet to get even damp when wearing this jacket this year. Also, it's lightweight so it can easily pack down into your backpack for those long tours in the backcountry but is warm enough for cruising the resort on the coldest of days. It comes with more pockets than you can ever need and the longer freeride is perfect for looking like a badass on the hill and getting the ladies in the lodge! I will never wear another jacket again...For reference I'm around 5'10" and wear an XL.

These are incredibly versatile skis. Lightweight and good for touring but fat enough to shred on the deepest pow days. They truly are a one ski quiver! Camber underfoot provides great grip and carving ability on groomers or firm snow, but the early rise in the tip and tail provide great flotation in the pow, and make the ski incredibly playful and nimble. Overall these are awesome skis! I would recommend mounting bindings a few cm's back from center.

The Surface New Life's are probably the best ski that I've ever owned! The subtle 3 Stage Rocker is shear genius and gives the ski great versatility. I skied this ski everyday last season in all conditions, from groomers, to chunder, to deep pow and everything in between. I found that this ski preformed great in all conditions. Also, this ski is extremely fun in the air and is super playful. The symmetrical rocker and shape is great for landing switch, buttering, and throwing all kinds of tricks that would make your grandma proud! Overall this is an awesome ski and I am extremely happy with it. I would definitely recommend mounting bindings dead center...
