Anything Norrona is amazing. I bought these simply for the color. Turns out I like wearing them all the time. They hold up nicely. I have washed them a lot in the last 3 months and no fading or signs of wear to the material. I use these for work, fishing, camping, biking and just everyday use. Great product. Like most Norrona products these do run small.

OK first off I've never used sunscreen till this summer so I really have nothing to compare this too. What I do know is it worked awesome, no sunburns. I got the 3 0z so far it's been used on 20 days for two adults and there is still stuff left over.

I like these better than the GSI Outdoors telescoping foon ones because I haven't hurt myself opening MSR one, yet. Yes probably user error on the sea to summit but still it hurt. Anyways I gave four stars because it's great for stirring anything that isn't too dense. Not good for good amount of pasta or rice. Yes I know these are not meant for that purpose but that is part of what I used it for. Other than that Pretty durable. I ran over mine with my bike and it's still good.

I gave it a four star more for personal reason. There are no flaws with this shoe, I love them but they are a little tight in the width. I have a wide foot so it's more uncomfortable than most shoes I own. Still I love to climb shorter routes in them.

I love the wireless on this. Not so stoked on the brim. When I'm not wearing my goggles they have to sit right on the brim or hang off the back of the helmet. This is my first snow helmet so it's taking some getting used to. It's a little bulky but not too bad. The helmet does it's job. The sound system is awesome, very clear sounds. Love that it's wireless and I don't have to pull my phone out all the time. Makes it nice for free riding and teaching lessons, so my phone isn't ringing in the middle of me talking, but I can still know when the office is trying to get a hold of me.

I love norrona, sort of obsessed with it, but for good reason. I bought these because the norrona gloves just weren't cutting it on the -20 windchill days. So I decided lets get some mittens. I purchased these and love em. I use them to teach ski lessons so they get a lot of use. They keep my hands nice and warm and are not bulky. They are not good on spring days because my hands get too hot.

These poles do the job, but i have to stop at the bottom of groomers and half way on deep pow days to tighten the screw at the top so i don't loose the pole straps. It get's annoying that no matter how tight I get them the screws always come undone super fast. Other than that the poles do what they are supposed to.

This is my second pair of these pants, and these ones hold up as well as the ones from two seasons ago. I use these while at my ski instructing job, and love them. They put up with the abuse from new skiers running into them, to shredding up the mountain in my free time.
On the negative wind chill days I wear a light base layer and usually a pair of soccer shorts under and am toasty warm.
The removable bib is awesome and easy to put on for those pow days. I also love the option to make this a one piece.

Overall these are worth the money, I have one pair that easily has 200+days on them and they are still as awesome as they where on day one, and my new ones have 30+ days of little kids running into them and still have no cuts in the material or signs of damage.

Even though these are a bit pricey I know I will not have to replace them for a few years and in the long run end up saving a ton of money with not having to replace my ski pants every year. That and I get a lot of comment on them.

Fit is true to size. Well waist is, I'm short so legs are always long on me.

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.

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.
