Peter's Bio

Live 15 miles north of New York City but spend enjoy spending my time in the Adirondack Mountains and Lake George NY. Whether its water skiing or snow skiing, as long as it involves putting on planks and enjoying the ride then I am in. The best part about skiing is sharing the experience with friends and family. Powder days are so valued in the east, so if driving for 6 hours in the middle of the night and sleeping in the car is what it takes, sign me up and listen for the "WOO HOOSSS" coming from the trees as you ride the chairlift up!!

Previously had the BD Traverse poles and these are very similar except better. Same aluminum top with the extra grip, the big difference is the carbon lower area of the pole... There is almost no bend when pushing down to stand up. These are very sturdy poles. I had previously bent my pair of BD traverse poles, the lower shaft which was made of aluminum had bent. These feel and preform so much stronger and it really gives a sense of confidence from them.... Enjoy!!

Purchased a pair of these for my girlfriend who I just took skiing for the first time... She was on the bunny slopes at Sugarbush VT for 3 days all in the single digit temps and she was warm every day, she wore only these under a pair of north face insulated ski pants. These suckers are warm and wick away moisture to keep you warm even as you work hard and sweat... If it wasnt for these pants she def would of froze and then that would have wrecked my vacation as having a cold and soggy GF translates to me having a headache and not being on the slopes to enjoy the day, thanks for saving me Patagonia!!!

These are amazing baselayers, I wore them under a pair of North Face Park Cargo ski pants and they kept me very warm in single degree temps with gusting winds into the 40 mph. The ski pants were insulated but it was definately these Capilene 4 pants that kept me warm and dry. They do wick away moisture too, I am sad to see they are out of stock and discountinued. If they make a capilene 5 I def will be picking up a pair or two.

This is without a doubt the best fleece I ahve ever worn... I have had it now for almost a year and it still works great. You would never think a fleece could knock down the wind as much as it does. Its warm as can be and is very durable, havent had a single issue with it to this point. I got it on sale here on backcounty and it has been the single most worn piece of outwear that I own.

Absolutely love these products... Just washed and waterproofed my ski jacket and pants. It works great, cleaned the jacket which had some stains on it. The best part... it made my killy jacket not only look brand new but it completely waterproofed it again. This was immediately tested as it was raining and the water just beaded and ran right off. Though it appears to be kind of pricey, backcountry has it for less than you will find in most stores and for once or twice a year that you would use it for ski gear it will pay for itself immediatey as you will be dry and warm, enjoy!

Holding IOX

The case hold the IOX fine, its the straps for the spare lens that doesnt work properly, as you can see in the photo, the straps dont fit at all. This is not a big deal but more of a convenience factor.

Good goggle case overall!!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

The case itself is great at protecting your goggles. The vents in the bottom do help it to dry out nicely after putting wet goggles in it. The case did stand up well to being packed during the trip and then in the pack with the spare lens during the day on the mountain. I have IOX's and the goggles fit just fine in the case. As the other person wrote the straps inside the case to hold spare lenses do NOT fit the IOX lens but they still fit fine in there, I recommend using the bag for the goggle in the case and then you wont have to worry about the spare lenses hitting the lenses on the goggle.... 4 stars only because the straps dont work for the IOX

Just tried these socks out and loved them. Very comfortable and extremely warm. Temps were in the single digits and my feet were toasty. They fit great and have good padding and cushioning in the right places. Skied in them 3 days in a row to see how they would hold up and they did a great job, and they didnt even hold a smell from three full days of hitting the slopes. Definately recommend to pick up a pair, great socks for the price!!!

Will a pair of the new I/O X fit into this case? I know they are a little bit bigger and I would like to get a case for them that I know fits correctly.... Thanks

I using these for a week of skiing I am very happy with them. They are extremely comfortable to walk with. The classic "Thump-thump" per step sound associated with walking in ski boots is out the door. In the snow they get you great traction and you are able to walk with confidence. The way these fit allow you to walk naturally and it is quiest and easy. They are a little big but they fit into my skins pocket on my pack with no problem. They protect your boots very well, one trip to the car and I just didnt put them on and my new boots already showed wear. I only one come loose during a walk through the lot and I'm pretty sure it was because I did not fully get it cuffed around the back of my boot. For the price I would say this a very smart investment to help protect your boots for years to come. GREAT PRODUCT!

Great Helmet
5 5

I never wanted to buy a helmet to ski in my whole life. After just missing my head smashing into a tree in the woods of sugarbush I realized it was time. After doing my research I picked the Smith Variant Brim. First off the helmet looks pretty good which put me at ease because I always associated helmets with gapers. It feels even better, the BOA system really sinches down around your head and it fits great! As for warmth it is amazing. I was in zero degree weather and had the vents wide open. It really holds heat in well and does vent great when needed. I have already recommended this helmet to my friends!

Just had these on up in Vermont for a week and I am impressed. They are extremely warm and are very comfortable to wear. I wasnt the biggest fan of the leather drawstring. Maybe it needs to broken in more but it was a bit annoying to adjust it. Like any leather glove it does stiffen up a good amount when taken off for a couple minutes in very cold conditions but as soon as I got it on they warmed right up. A side note, they look pretty sweet while wearing a red jacket. I bought the black with red accents. For the price they are a steal, pick up a pair and enjoy!

Just got them, I am 6'3 and have large hands. I bought the XL and it is a little tight but I definately feel like they will pack a little bit. They are def a warm glove, the fleece lining is a nice addition, it really makes the glove feel comfortable. At first they are a little rigid but just wearing them for a little while and they are already becoming more flexible. I am looking forward to getting out on these and putting them to work very soon.
