I've been wearing the Flylow Hot Tub for a few weeks now and really like them - truth be told, I've probably worn them at some point during 5 of 7 days this week, and am still psyched. The combination of a technical, light, soft and stretchy fabric with a casual/chino short look makes for a super versatile short. They can be worn over chamois for mountain biking, to the bar for beers and, as expected, to the hot tub (or any other water for that matter). The material dries quickly and the mesh pocket bags let the water drain quickly. I am a 34 waist and these may fit slightly large (1" perhaps); however, the difference is negligible for me, so I still wear the Hot Tub in a 34 waist. If you're a 33 waist, I would go with the 32 for sure.

The Patagonia Rivet t-shirt is one of my personal favorites due the excellent fit, look and feel - it's an instant classic in my book. Personally, I like the 100% cotton t-shirts compared to blended Ts, as they seem to breathe/regulate temps a little better for everyday use when wicking is not important. I have the Rivet in Lite Blazing Yellow and really like the washed-out look of this particular yellow - it's easy on the eyes and looks as though you've had it for years.

Yes, that's right people, this is the perfect insulated jacket for Summer. Why? Well, fist off, because that's what it was designed for. More importantly, the Atom SL is a perfect insulated jacket for Summer because it only has a tiny amount of insulation in the body, and none in the arms - it has stretchy fleece vent panels on the side that increase venting, and a soft taffeta interior liner. I have found myself grabbing this almost every morning, and most nights so far this summer, as it's just the right amount of jacket for temps in the 50s and 60s F. I wear it around town and have also worn it on a couple early morning mountain bike rides so far this season, and it has been excellent.

I've been wearing the Shilling Shorts for a few months now and am really liking the stretchy material and relatively trim fit. The material has a good feel to it, and is also quite durable - I have a feeling it will dry super quickly after an impromptu jump in the lake or river - mesh pocket bags are also key here. I really like how there are two zippered pockets; one in the rear and one on the front right thigh. I have been using the front zippered pocket for my iPhone 6, and it fits perfectly - the hand pockets are just that; hand pockets, and for that they are the correct size. After all, with 2 zippered pockets, there's plenty of room to safely stow keys, phone, wallet, etc. I really like the fit - my wife immediately asked me "ooo, what are those?" when I put them on, and that's a good thing. They are trim, but still leave plenty of room for movement, especially with the stretch. Personally, I find them to fit me perfectly - I am a 34 waist and wear these in a 34 as well. I have them in Shark, which is a nice charcoal color - a bit lighter in person, which was a bonus for me.

I've had my Bronson CC for a couple months now, and am extremely pleased with my choice. Living here in UT, it's important to have a versitile mountain bike to handle the varrying terrain - so far, the Santa Cruz Bronson CC is up to the task and taking it all in stride. Yesterday, I decided to extend my cross-country loop and headed over to the terrain park - I rode up to the top of the park, and back down the freeride trail without having to even put a foot down, just a couple suspension/seat height adjustments mid-pedal, and I was good to go.
The Bronson II is the most capable bike I've had the pleasure of riding thus far. My previous bike was a Tallboy LTc for reference (a great bike, but I am really appreciating the 27.5 wheels on the Bronson). I am 6'2 and got the Large - the size chart says I could go L or XL - personally, I like the added flickability of the Large frame and haven't noticed any stability issues.

I've been wearing the Basin and Range Storm Mountain Pants in Dark Khaki for a couple weeks now and have really been liking the fit, and stretchy material. The fit is nicely tailored and the material stretches well, but not too much - the pants are still durable and breathe well. The DWR coating is a nice touch. I was at an outdoor concert this weekend and it rained quite hard; the Strom Mountain Pant's DWR made the water bead-up and roll off without the pants really wetting out. This was a relief, as most times I wear a rain coat with casual pants, they get soaked from the water running off the jacket - that is not the case with these pants, and I was psyched to say the least. Fit is true to size - I am 6'2" 185 and wear 34x32 in the Storm Mountain Pant.

The Norrona Svalbard Heavy Duty Hybrid pant is a updated and modern version of the traditional european hiking pant. With Norrona's stretchy Flex3 softshell and reinforced areas where you need it (knees/rear), these hiking pants are ready to head out on the trail, into the mountains, or just down the street. I think they look especially cool in the two-tone green. These hiking pants breathe very well, and are extremely comfortable, even on longer hikes. Highly recommended!

I've had the Blue Norrona Falketind Gore-Tex jacket for 3 years now and it has proven to be my most frequently used waterproof-breathable jacket. It is lightweight, durable, comfortable and ready for whatever - the perfect do-it-all shell. I've worn it skiing, hiking, mountain biking and around town - it is slightly short to use as your dedicated ski jacket unless you plan on wearing a harness frequently, as the hem has a slight drop-tail design. Fit is true to size - I am 6'2" 185 and large fits perfectly.

My wife liked mine so much that I got her a pair of the Nike Air Zoom Wildhorse for herself, and she absolutely loves them. Not only are they light, comfortable and have great grip for hiking and trail running, but they look cool too! They are very stable due to their wide sole and have a great, snug fit. Sizing is true to size.

I've had my Birkenstock Boston clogs for over 10 years now, and feel compelled to give a long-term update. I'm pleased to tell you that other than some expected tread wear, they fit and feel better with each passing day. These are great Birks for me, as they can be worn year-round. I fully intend to have them for another 10 years!

The North Face Cyclone Hooded Windbreaker is a solid copmpanion for hikes and bike rides - I don't always use it, but it's nice to have in my pack and doesn't take up much space and is reasonably light. Great value for less than $60.

This is now my 2nd Yeti cooler and I'm just as excited about it as I was the first (which I still have, it's just bigger). The Yeti Roadie is perfect for road trips - not too huge and keeps everything cold as possible. I would highly recommend!

I got the New England Shirt Co's Check Chambray shirt a couple weeks ago and really like it so far. The material is nice and light, and the cut is excellent - I got a large and it fits true to size. I will be getting a lot of use out of this shirt this summer!
