Reid Pitman's Bio

Follow on Instagram: el_reido

I've been filling my life with extremes as long as I've known.
Once a addict\alcoholic to a endurance biking, backcountry snowboarder.
I live\work at a ski area year round, I also ski\ride year round on the glaciers of the PNWSplitboarding changed how I look at summer time. Skiing is just something to pass the time til powder days. Shoulder seasons I can be found riding single tracks and bike parks or scrambling up mountains and pebble wrestling. I don't like water unless its frozen, hot weather, things with engines, romantic comedies...

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 170 lbs
Size Purchased: medium

Thanks to Backcountry for letting me check these out.
So the fit reminds me of CWX baselayers without the stability support. Which I like. Hey guys like tights to.
Pros: The material is awesome! Great next to skin feel and highly breathable. I like the slight body mapping the legs have, breathable behind the knee and on the calves. They ran a little short on me fitting more like a 4\5, also a plus cause they is more room for socks without being doubled up. Flyless, these will also make great running layers and perfect for long splitboard approaches when I don't feel like wearing pants.

Cons: The fit could be a little Taller from the inseam to waist.
Key pocket? The legs are tight, which might not work for the burly type. But I like it.
They are lightweight but feel comfortable down into the low 30s with just a shell pant over them.

Another piece thats very well rounded and multisport. Any fast paced activity these will be able to handle.

All about that base
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 170 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

Big thanks to Backcountry.com for selecting me to try out this piece!
The lightweight baselayer has a really smooth feel and looser fit. The different material over each shoulder is seemless and smooth even wearing a heavy pack. The black does pick up solar very well so even on a cool hike the sun and breathability kept me comfortable.
Pros: Materials are nice and breaths well, and yet holds heat if layered with a wind shell. Also its fairly abrasion resistant I found while rock climbing.The fit is good around the neck (a common problem I have) and with the sleeve length.
Best of all, it doesn't smell... yet..
Cons: The fit could be longer in the body for tucking into ski pants and perhaps longer in the arms.

All in all a well built piece that serves a lot of different activities.
Its nice for a cool day at crags with varying temps, ski touring, getting lost in the desert and wearing for 3 days in a row while camping...

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 170 lbs

Similar fit as many of OR's midlayer pieces like the Transendent down jacket, neoplume, and ferrosi. But the Superlayer does have a longer back making it nice to wear as an outer layer as well.
The thumb loops work but are something I rarely use.
Pros: High quality primaloft is very warm considering the weight.
Fit is nice for fans of OR.
Pocket lay out works great wearing a pack and accessing the hand pockets. I love the stuff it style inside pockets.
Soft feeling fabric unlike most nylon lined puffy coats.
Zips into its own pocket!
Cons: Not as breathable as it claims but still more than standard synthetics.
The fit in the lower body is a little loose while the upper could feel tight on wide shouldered folks. The longer back hangs out under my Axiom shell, not really a negative..

All in all this is a great piece of gear, fitting nicely under a hardshell and performs great as a stand alone.
If you're shopping for an all round warm jacket for ski touring, mountaineering or damp weather climbing, this is it.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Huge thanks to Backcountry.com and POW Gloves for selecting me to review these for the benefit of the community!
Lengthy, nice features, over-the-cuff style. The fabric of the palm has a supple yet tacky feel that grips very well with out feeling abrasive. I was sent the Mitten version.
Pros: Waterproof and great DWR coating! I like feel of the palm, its holds on to cold chair lifts and ski poles very well. The lining is extremely soft. Size is true with a Large, (my hands are 8" long and palm is 3.75"wide) and length runs to mid forearm.

Cons: No leashes, just personal preference. The thumb is a little tight, could be a problem for folks with larger fingers.
All in all, I like them very much. The quality and stitching is top notch. I really like how secure the liner feels stitched to the shell, no pulling that out with a sweaty hand.
Also they compress small enough that I hardly notice when I shove them in my back on splitboard adventures.
