Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Just picked up a new one because I had to get the white camo and it is so sick. Not only does the Droz look sweet, but it feels good and is very easy to breath with. I wear it almost everyday of the skis season especially when it's coming down and you need some protection, but also from wind, sun and just to show how cool you are for rocking discrete. I also use the droz for biking, hiking and other adventures when not skiing.

Fit: True to size

Skied with the 2012 model this past season and I love it. Great waterproofing, clean and cool styling, good colors, very comfortable, and also includes sweat features like a built-in balaclava, pit zips and good pocket placement. Also hood works well with helmet.

This is a good rain shell for the price, but is not Patagonia quality. It fits true to size, looks good, packs down well and protects from the rain, but I found myself getting very hot and sweaty in it, in not super hot temps. Besides breathability, it is a good product. Bottom line; its going to be as good or better than the other options for this price range, just not classic patagonia quality that comes with the name.

I have now had this helmet for a season and love it. The best parts about it are the venting, super quick and easy and works well, how well it fits with my I/O's, the comfortable inside, and how rad it looks. The one con is that my BOA system doesn't seem to work anymore, otherwise awesome helmet.

I sported these on a 33-day canoe trip this past summer, with rugged conditions and the did an amazing job. They would dry quickly, were a tough material, didn't chafe and had a great retro look to them. They are a little short, but they are better to walk in because of that. Highly recommend.

I have had this dry bag for 3 years now and this past year it started tearing in areas creating small holes. I was on a canoe trip and I threw it out of my tent. It hit a rock and the rock ripped straight through the fabric. For the rest of the trip I used a SealLine Baja bag and the material felt much tougher and worked better. I will definitely buy one for next summer.The buckle on that bag is also much tougher.

I have only skied 4 days on these but they are great! 1 of those days was a powder day and they were super surfy and floaty and were very fast. They are also very stable at speed. On the other hand I skied these in pure spring conditions and they were super fun and poppy. Because of the slight camber in the ski they will pop off of anything and make skiing great. The only place where the ski doesn't excel is ice and super firm groomers, but they aren't supposed to be amazing on firm snow. They can shred on a groomer and carve slalom turns and are a super fun ski if you live out west.
