Love these shirts. Have 2, could use a few more. Perfect for wearing over my wool while shredding, or wearing while mtn biking at cooler times of the year.
Just watch out you don't accidentally order the cotton one like I originally did. This one is the polyester you want for any type of physical activities outdoors.
Plus looking all lumberjack-esque
Really pleased with these gloves. Used them for 3 days in variable conditions last week. Made sure I used the supplied balm and worked it into the gloves before I used them the first time. I like the beeswax smell that they now have. Just need to locate a jar of that stuff, as it increases durability and waterproofing.
Used the gloves in a range of temps from -10 Celsius to 5 Celsius no issues that I noticed with cold hands.
Picked up the 160cm at the start of the season after abusing a 156 model for the past 2 seasons, which included 11 days of cat boarding and probably 40 days all on it. Went 156 as I felt my K2 Gyrator 162 was too stiff. I was on the upper end of the weight range on the 156 and was running about 1.5" setback to help in all the waist to nipple deep days we had up in the PNW.
On the 160, Im slightly back of centre to get the same float, without the risk of having the nose sink in. Not as playful of a board, probably due to the larger size (used to pow manual the 156 an entire pow filled run). I've stopped riding all my other boards once I got the Sick Stick as it is such a fun board even out of the pow and on the groomers.
My lead guide last week was on a factory split Sick Stick as well!
Purchased both the S & M. Kept the small as the medium was too boxy and big. Seems to be a slightly different fit than the Slopestyle 2.0 hoody I have from a few seasons back though.
Might not be the clothing so much as it might be me. I think I have shrunk in the wash!
Bought a pair of the green Fjora shorts last season. Like the longer length to them while still being slim yet able to take a POC knee pad underneath without an issue other than having to open the vent zip to slide the short over the kneecap. Higher waist at the back prevents plumbers crack exposure, and a shorter length crotch keeps from catching the nose on the saddle compared to other shorts.
FYI, I now own all three colours in size small. Previous go to shorts were Sombrio Pinners
Really like the style of this jacket, have been wanting one for a while. Wanted it for days where the Lofoten gear isn't needed and general around town lumberjacking. At 5'8" 150lbs the medium was way too big for me, unless I was still on some FODT/terrain park homey steeze. Sadly it will go back, and I'll try to locate a small next season.
5'8" 150 lbs, which size should I get? Are they still fairly box cut?
Just got mine today. Space pretty darn close to the colour of the zippers on my Lofoten One Piece in Norrona Green
Tried one of these on today. At 5'9" 145lbs the medium hugged very closely(couldn't think how it wouldn't look stupid with anything other than athletic shorts), the large was roomier and had more of a hoodie feel to it. It was probably last years one as it didnt have front pockets on it
No other colours coming in?
Does the Vibram sole add stiffness to this shoe?
Ive got the regular Grasshoppers and I like them for everyday chilling, but want the Vibram waxed ones for using on the DH bike. If the sole is not stiffer Ill go 5.10s.
Any more 7.5s coming in?
Believe the Race has some Kevlar
How many boards can this bag hold? Looking for a bag that can hold 2 boards and 2 pairs of binders (second pair don't have to be attached to the second board)
Also are the length sizes true to board sizes? My old Burton 165cm bag barely fit a 156cm board in it. I assume a 165cm bag should hold my 162cm board fine?
What is the orange rubber piece for?
something you would want to keep from getting wet
I didnt have a shovel with me when I looked at it, but the pocket is big enough to fit that shovel
Inside the avy tool pocket there is a compartment for a probe on one side, shovel handle on the other, and a blade pocket, plus there is a small pocket inside for snow tools i guess.
probably going to trade in my Dueter EH Guide for the Kode 30, unless the EH really blows me away.
Rev shorts are the bomb. Stretchy with dwr coating (08s at least) velcro waist adjustment tabs are nice. Pretty much a race/resort short as it lacks a lot of pockets
Purchased the Cross X in spring '08. Ridden them exclusively for about a year and a half. Just starting to show wear on the seams in the last month. Would purchase them again
