The blue tooth connection to phone was a snap. No issues connecting. Sound from phone was fine. Plays music fine and answers calls and I can hear caller easily. The problem is the caller cannot here me well. The voice is garbled. Not sure if playing with the mic position in the earpieces will help or not. But so far, it seems to only be good for blue tooth connection to listen to music and having a conversation on the phone is useless.

Salomon makes awesome trail shoes. These tend to run large, though. I bought a previous gortex pair in my normal size 8 street size and they are a bit big on my foot. No big deal since I wear heavy winter socks with them. Bought this newer pair for spring.summer, fall wear and sized down to 7.5. They fit perfectly. Very comfortable, love the quick lacing system, and offer great support for my feet. Highly recommend.

These are the lightest, most comfortable sunglasses I've ever worn. Half the time I forget I'm even wearing them. No pinching behind the ears. And I love Maui Jim lens quality -- resists scratching and crystal clear. I wear these around town, driving and mountain biking. Never disappointed with Maui Jims.

Maui Jim sunglasses are some of the best on the market. The lenses are top quality and offer completely clear visibility. The Hibiscus are a larger framed model. Nicely styled. Frames are highest quality, solid hinges and slight padded on the nose so they don't leave the funky red mark when you take them off.

Buy them! You won't be disappointed.

I love the Arcteryx brand and quality of their products. You pay a bit more for them, but it is totally worth the extra $$$'s. This jacket has nice styling and a good fit. The fleece does not pill or shed like cheaper brands. Seams are solid. And I love the selection of colors. Makes a great liner under your shell for cold ski days. Also great on it's own as a jacket or sweater for around town. I plan to buy more colors.

Dale makes some of the nicest classic ski sweaters. I bought this one in the white with purple design. I have received so many compliments on it. The cut is nicely feminine. Not bulky some some ski sweaters. It's a very warm sweater. With the lined neck, I can wear with a base layer underneath and not get an itchy neck. I absolutely love this sweater!

These skis are absolutely FANTASTIC. I love them. The reverse camber really lives up to the hype. These babies float in powder and turn so easily in the crud, yet the rip on the groomers on the way back to the lift. As conditions vary through the day from smooth untracked to bumped up crud or skied off groomers, these skis just glide along. I was very worried such a fat ski would be difficult to turn and flop around on the groomers. But they carve like they are on rails. They take all the grunt work out of skiing deep powder. I get more laps in with out the worn out legs. Buy Them!!!!

I love these shoes. Paired with my Crank brother 5050 pedals, I am riding MUCH better than with my clipless set-up. Just knowing I can stomp my foot down when needed with out the fear of being trapped in the SPDs is confidence-inspiring. These shoes are very comfortable yet sturdy. Good gripping soles ensure stability on the pedals and in the occasional "hike a bike" sections. I hav a fairly low volume foot, and felt they ran pretty true to size. I normally wear an 8 and ordered an 8 and am quite comfortable in them. So I did not have the same issue others did with feeling like you had to down-size. The extra protection around the inside ankle is nice as well.

Bought these to swap out my SPD pedals while I get used to new terrain. I love not worrying about whether I'll get out of my pedals when I need to riding up a steep trail or through a rock garden. Having the flat pedals gives me a higher level of confidence to try things I wouldn't try riding my clipless pedals. My only comlpaint is the occasional slippage when climbing. Everyone once in a while, if I get in too low a gear, the rapid spin causes my foot to fall off the pedal while climbing. But that is mostly user error. So I'm getting better at picking my gears. Would highly recommend, especially for those new to mountain biking.
