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
Size Purchased: Large

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.

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.

Pretty darn nice flannel!
Thick fabric has a heavy "feel" to it and very soft against skin.
Fit is better than some other OR long sleeve shirts I've had.
I'm 6'2" 175lbs, long arms, tall torso. The large fits perfectly down to the wrist and isn't boxy or baggy in the body.
The stitching is also better than I expected. There's a few loose threads at first but all button holes are good.
The weight of the shirt makes it warm but its very breathable too!
Subdued colors make it fitting for apres, cool hikes and stealing from your boyfriend...
