Maxwell Eder's Bio

I like to ski. A LOT.

I also like to camp, hike, backpack, mountain bike, cycle, wear short shorts, and take epic naps.

I like giving two thumbs up to pretty much everything .

Being alive kicks ass

I'v been using this tent for about a year now, in all sorts of conditions and I love it. Why? Because it's the bee's F-ing knees that's why. When it rained for 2 days on Vancouver island it kept me dryer than ... oh i don't know something really dry. When it super windy in South Dakota and felt like I was in a wind tunnel for 12 hours it held up just fine. It's light enough to carry backpacking and if you get a compression sack for the tent body, rain fly and footprint it packs fairly small. The tent is really easy to setup once you get the hang of it but I definitely recommend practicing in your backyard first. For sure buy the footprint too, for the extra $30 it will add a lot of life to you're tent and it allows you to set it up without the tent body which can be nice for summer time/ light weight backpacking. The tent has always felt comfortable with two people in it, and with two doors and two vestibules it is easy to get in and out of and offers plenty of space for gear. All in all this is an awesome tent.

For a while I was using a Z-lite, which I loved (great pad for the price) but it was finally time to upgrade so I went with a prolite plus in the regular size. I'm 5'8" and the regular is perfect allowing me to keep both my feet and head on the pad. It rolls up fairly small and is definitely small enough and light enough to carry on any overnight or multi-day trip. Sleeping on it is super comfortable and I have never slept better on any other sleeping pad. Even last weekend when I had a rock under my pad (oops) I slept super sound and didn't notice it at all. The pad also insulates very well and I have not felt any cold spots on my back, but I have also not taken it winter camping yet. All in all a great all around pad

Five years old and still going strong

I'v had this baby since my sophomore year of high school. Since then its seen seven or eight countries, gone on countless vacations and day hikes, carried my books to school rain or shine 5 days a week and is still holding up remarkably well. Sure two of the buckles are broken, but thats because i accidentally stepped on them 3 years ago. The back panel fabric is a little ripped, but yours would be too if you had to sit on the things i set this pack on. Its had everything from hot wax to beer spilled on it and held everything from cases of beer to laptops to outerwear. Bottom line, i have put this pack through hell over the last 5 years and it has never failed me. If you want a super reliable pack to hold whatever you want look no further. When i eventually retire this pack i will replace it with a another TNF pack.

I'v had these for about 2 winters now in all conditions,and they are durable and hold up well and fit my face nicely. After two seasons of abuse they now have a scratch or two on the lens but that is more due to my negligence than any durability issues. I occasionally have some fogging issues but thats very rare. I prefer the fit of my smith goggles a little better, but make no mistake these are a great pair of goggles. I would definitely consider buying these again.

These bars are super strong, Hercules strong, and relativity light weight. I have the 50 inch bars on my Toyota Yaris and they fit great. I have had them on my car for two years now and they have supported everything from mountain bikes to my friends being jackasses. Bottom line: If your looking for a super solid cross bars to hold all your outdoors gear or even an elephant or two look no further.

I would highly recommend this for any one who has a Thule roof rack. I had my roof rack for two years before i got the fairing and i don't know how i survived without it. It cuts down on noise, saves gas and was super easy to install. Furthermore, i'm pretty sure it almost manages to make my Toyota Yaris look fast. The only reason i didn't give it five stars is because it is a little expensive for what is essentially a large piece of plastic.

Phenomenal bike mount. I have used these to carry my bikes both on day adventures and on 1,200 mile drives between Colorado and Wisconsin. They fit my mountain bike, road bike and track bike just fine and keep them securely locked in. It is fairly easy and intuitive to use and install. Definitely buy the lock cylinders so you do not have to worry about your bikes getting stolen.

These skis are awesome. Super playful, stiff under foot but soft in the tips. My quiver of one. They work fine at crud busting and they dominate the moguls and feel stable all the time. They are pretty quick edge to edge as well.I took them to Silverton CO this year and to wolf creek CO during the 72 inch storm and they ripped the soft snow and powder despite not being rockered or super fat. I mounted them at the 0 mark and it has worked well for me so far. If you want a good all around all mountain ski look no further.

PS. The pictures of them online do not do these skis justice. These skis are a beautiful work of art.
