Got this as I suddenly had an urge to learn fly fishing. I can't same I'm good at it or that I even know what I'm doing, but I do enjoy it. I have accidentally flung the rod into the river, dropped it on the rocks, released it while I was mid cast, run into numerous things with it( I forget about the length) and this rod has not cracked or snapped on me! I've hooked fish to big for this weight and it's bent her but she held up nicely. Maybe next season I will finally figure out all the technics but for now I like that I can beat this rod up and it hasn't broken.
I like the length of this shirt a lot. I enjoy longer lengthens in my flannels and this one is perfect. It has kept me warm working in a warehouse, and I use it as a layer while up in the mountains. It's helped out very nice as a layer on these -20 windchill days we have been seeing. It's also thick enough that on 35+ degrees I have worn this shirt with a long sleeve underneath and it's been perfect to ski in. I've already put 40 days on this shirt easily and it's been holding up perfectly.
Purchased for working at the resorts, thinking these would be great as I love Armada skis, and I was very disappointed! First they don't keep me warm on windy, and/or cold days. I have a few shells and with one base layer on underneath 0 degree and a -20 windchill I've been just fine in my other shells. Not these though I've had to resort to a doubling up on my base layers which is not comfortable. They don't breath well, and of the straps on the vents broke after the 2nd day of use, which wouldn't be to big of a deal if these weren't work pants. The only positive thing so far with this is they do keep me dry, and on warm days 40+ they are fine with just one base layer.
I got these to put my old rack on my new car. They work great, no problems.
Although I don't suggest this I was completely pleased the first day I got this. I sometimes forget I have phone in my pocket and jump into water. I've ruined about 5 phones doing this, so finally sucked it up and purchased this case. The very next day I yet again forgot my phone was in my pocket and jumped into the lake. I was horrified at first thinking S**t there goes another one. I however remembered to put my new green case on my phone. I got back into the boat and to my relief the phone was bone dry, fully functional and I wasn't going to have to do the walk of shame into the apple store again.
Other than it saving me a lot of money I enjoy how light weight this case is compared to the otter box, as well as it not being bulky. I have tiny hands and this case doesn't not bother me as much as other cases I have had.
I have dropped it from 20 feet (I tend to forget it's in my pocket when climbing as well) it landed on the side of the phone, and left a small ding in the case but left my phone unharmed.
Even if you're not as clumsy as I am this phone is totally worth it just incase you have that one accident.
I use with Iphone 5
All I am going to say is buy em, they are totally worth it. Like everyone said size down. I went with my normal size and they are a little big, but my size was not in stock, they moved around and shifted a little while riding but never came off my knee. I rode with them on for 5 miles uphill and they are pretty breathable, and I really like that. When I reached the DH I took a small fall and they did shift off my knee a little bit but took the brunt of them impact, fully impressed, and can't wait till my size is in stock.
I bought four, I really like my seasoning. I really like how with four I can put 8 different seasons or I can just put a lot of four. It's lightweight easy to use, and very sturdy. I have dropped thrown and stepped on them and they have held up. The lid is a little weak and didnt' hold up to being dropped directionly on. It's isn't water tight, if you forget it's in you pocket and jump in a river you will have a tastless dinner.
I had these for about four months, and used them every day. Most the time was just riding to work, or walking around town. The sound comes out better than any buds that I have heard, and I have had a ton of them. These however are not very durable. They where in my pack sitting in top pocket, I tossed the pack in the back of my car and when I opened it a few hours later they where broken. I have treated my buds way worse in the past and they have stood up a ton more, I was very displeased with the durability of these. Didn't quite make up for the awesome sound. I would say these would be awesome as long as you are not using these in the outdoors or anything they may take a light impact. They stayed in my ears while biking but not while running. They did stand up to some pretty heavy downpours so that was nice.
Here is what Momma had to say "I'm a women and I have never had a ladies backpack, and this one is the bomb. It fit the length of my body and contoured to my figure. I used this on a four day backpacking trip into the Uintahs. It was loaded with 35-40lbs and for my first backpacking trip in a while I have to say I am extremely pleased with this pack"
Took this up to the Wind River Range in Wyoming for four days. I fell in love with it. I will never go camping again without. It kept me very warm. I was able to just use the silk liners at time, and when I used it with my bag I didn't get cold at all. My husband was jealous (guess I have to buy one for dad now) It was light enough that I didn't notice it all. We had to backpack in to our area and this was light enough my husband approved of it being in my pack.
I bought this for my grandma and she loves it. She says she likes how soft it is and how it doesn't feel heavy. She also says it is perfect for cool afternoons.
I got my 2nd sunburn in my life the other week, 18 hrs in the sun in 2 days did me in. My shoulders and neck where fried and in a lot of pain. I forgot my aloe at home so snagged this up real quick. One application lasted all day. Saved me from my shirt rubbing on my sore shoulders all day (I know I am a wuss). Other aloes I have used I would have to apply anywhere from every hour to ever four. I work in a hot warehouse and this stood up to me running around all day. If I ever go out in the sun again,kidding, I will use there products for sure.
I have only used this a few times, I got it then spring sort of went away and it got hot. Anyways great little windbreaker. When it was a chilly wind I would throw on my arm warmers on my bike rides and be good to go. It breaths really well. I have had many jackets where I get all sweaty because the jacket didn't breath. I went on a 40 mile with a lot of hills and it was prime. It sprinkled a little and I didn't get wet. The water rolled off. I was going DH in the light rain for about 20 minutes and did not get wet, this is with no weather proof on it so I was pretty happy.
I can listen to these for hours and never have any ear pain. they fit snug and the sound is great. I have tried the mic out a few times and really liked it. The only downside is they buttons are a tad hard to find with gloves on in the middle of winter, but nothing I can't live with.
The ball is fine I don't mind that but the finger web has a poor weak design to it. Mine broke after a few uses. The ball has worked out fine and if nothing else is great for throwing at the sibblings.
I use this as a work hoodie and it has held up through some beatings. It is not the warmest hoodie but great for a cold warehouse. I like how the colors have not faded after at least 50 washings.
I bought this because I am a wuss and won't brave cold weather under 45 on a bike. I used it all winter and really enjoyed it. It was a very easy set up and I liked that it is quiet enough that I could hop on it after work and do a quick workout without waking up the neighbors (around midnight). I also love the stability of it, as I am currently recovering from a shoulder injury and can easily ride this and not feel like I am going to fall off. I do prefer being outside but when I am unable to this does the job.
I am assuming your are talking about the Falketind Pro since the Loften pro isn't in stock at the moment. The biggest diffence is going to be fit(in my opinion), and lenght I've tried them both on and own this one. The active shell is a little bit longer. Where the pro shells are a little bit shorter. I am not 100% sure on this but I do believe that the Falketind pro shells does not come with wrist gators, I do know the Loften shells do.
All shells are waterproof and breathable, use gore, and are fully taped. If you are looking for a powder skit this is the jacket to go with. I own it and love it!
I hope I was a little helpful if not you can always hit up the Live Chat those guys are awesome.
I forgot the zipper is a big difference as well, it take some getting used to having an off center zipper, it can be a little annoying from time to time.
I haven't quite gotten used to the zipper on this, it is way nice on zero days but when I don't want my jacket zipped up all the way I tend to get a little annoyed. I still love this jacket though and won't stop wearing it just because of the zipper. I bought this one size up to layer up with, and am glad I did. The inside pocket does not fit the IPhone 5 very well and that is annoying. Anything smaller then that though and your golden. I love the bicep zipper (although I keep forgetting that I put stuff in there). If the IPhone would fit with out it being such a struggle to get in and out this would be a five star jacket.
I wore this as a layer with a -20 windchill snowboarding and was perfect all day long. I got caught in one of these awesome snowstorms that UT has been having with just this jacket to protect me. It was a cold wet snow, I had a 30 min ride home on my bike. I got home both warm and dry. I love that when heading downhill the hood didn't fall off like most hoods do. This is my first Arc'teryx item and it is totally worth the money!
