These are great shades. I have the regular rounded lenses and have had them for several years. The titanium lenses have been great and have stood up to my active and crazy life. I have put these shades through hell and they keep kickin'. I have a small to medium face and they fit great. The slight exposure from dust and debris from the sides help them to vent better during high intensity pursuits. I have worn these shade to run equipment, rope cows, ride MTB/Moto and drink cold ones after all that. Now that is pretty good!

These things rock. I have been an oakley fan for the last 11 years or so. Never been disappointed. I got these because my new job need more wrap around eye protection. I had a pair of half jackets that I was very happy with but they were 3+ years old and getting tired. These glasses give me ANSI Z87 rated protection from flying debris and keep me stylin'. The polarization is a plus to keep glare down when I'm off playing after work.

Bottom Line: Buy them. If you can keep a decent pair of shades around then this is what you need!

I love these shorts. I got turned onto these shorts at a Prana factory sale where they had 2nds for $10! I have been buying them ever since. The material dries incredibly fast and is stretchy enough to do almost anything. These shorts have been climbing, repelling, sky-diving, and even the occasional pub crawl. The bottom line above is right on. Doesn't get much better than this!

This is my go to underlayer when it gets cold. With one of these and my OR ski jacket I can be down below 0 and still having a good sweaty time. Too bad they are made in china, but then everything is these days. No stink, no problems. Merino is the best and just about anything from IB is going to work awesome.

This thing is awesome. I got the aluminum handle and the TiNi blade. Solid knife, holds an edge great, and scored on SAC! The assisted opening is solid, the locking mechanism can be operated with gloves on, and the balance and ergonomics are fantastic. The aluminum handle is tough and still light enough. The clip lets the knife sit completely flush inside my pocket and it stays in place very well. Also, SOG used regular allen bolts instead of torx bolts so it is easier to work on. Go buy one of these!

Not really impressed. I liked the gauntlets, but overall I didn't like the gloves. The fingertips were sewn funny, the stiffness required a fairly extended break-in, and the glove wasn't as warm as I was expecting. They seemed to cut the wind fine and they worked, but there are definitely better gloves out there for a better price. I picked them up in SAC and they were still $55. Yikes!

Pretty solid knife. My everyday carry knife at the moment. The clip is prone to bending and the blade is made in china. Holds and edge pretty well and feels nice in the hand. Nice and thin so I don't notice it in the pocket. Got it for a decent price on SAC, otherwise not worth the money...

I absolutely love this jacket. This is has become my go to winter coat. I have skiied in it and bummed around town. When the mercury starts dropping I can hang out in just a t-shirt and this jacket. As long as it is above -10 degrees, that is...

The length of the jacket is great. It comes down to a little past my waist. Longer in the back that the front. I'm also happy with the removable powder skirt and hood. I'm 6' and 175 lbs and wear a large with just enough space underneath to layer up, if necessary. This thing is very waterproof. I'm a huge fan of this jacket. Durable, waterproof, warm.

All I can say is.. BUY IT!
