Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

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.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

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 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.
