Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The RockShox Reverb Dropper Post is probably the best thing I have bought for myself all year, it's truly a game-changer. While it's relatively easy to justify not buying one, I can assure you that if you do decide to pull the trigger, you will not be disappointed; you'll be wondering why it took you so long to make the decision. Having the ability to customize the seat height mid-ride is what it's all about - you'll be faster on the downhills and just as fast on the ups.

I've been wearing the new Nike Pegasus 32 in Deep Royal Blue/Ghost Green/Voltage Green/Black for the last couple weeks and have nothing but good things to say. They are comfortable, light and well-vented - plus, I really like the way they look. Probably not the best option if your intent is to trail run, but for everything else (road running, working out, everyday wear) these are some of the best Nike running shoes I've had in a long time.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've been riding the Vittoria Barzo TNT tire on the front of my Santa Cruz Tallboy LTc for the last couple weeks and am quite impressed by it's traction on loose-over-hard conditions (much of what we find in the rockies). The 2.25 has pretty good volume for it's size, and I haven't been left wanting for a wider option as of yet.

The Patagonia Long Haul Western shirt is my favorite shirt to wear mountain biking because of the great wicking material, athletic fit and unique styling. The collar is great too, as it keeps the back of my neck from getting burnt on long rides (plus, it helps keep me looking classy). I would highly recommend this shirt to anyone looking for a different, yet 100% functional shirt for mountain biking, trail running or hiking. For those people who like a roomier fit, I might recommend sizing up, as the fit is certainly slim.

I got the Meridian Line Captain Bird Beard shirt last week and it's great - the fit is even better than expected, the shirt is great quality and the artwork is amazing. I have a feeling this is the first of many Meridian Line T-Shirts that will find their way into my regular rotation.

I have been wearing the Nike Air Zoom Wildhorse 3 for about 3 weeks and they are perfect for my needs. They're extremely comfortable and lightweight, more importantly, they provide a stable platform and plenty of grip on the trail.

The Dynafit Traverse Durastretch shorts are my new favorite mountain bike shorts for all types of riding. They are made out of a fantastic softshell material that has tons of stretch, is soft on the interior and durable on the exterior. The length is perfect for me, just covering the tops of my knees, but not getting in the way behind my knees, thanks to the scalloped cut around the hem - essentially, the shorts are slightly longer in the front than they are in the back. The adjustable Velcro on the waist allows for a great fit and the pockets are well sized and placed appropriately. I would highly recommend these shorts to any mountain biker looking for a well-thought-out mountain bike short to wear over their favorite chamois.

The Toad & Co Drover Denim jeans are my go-to jeans these days and I love the fact that they have a little bit of stretch. They are a classic trim fit with a style that can be easily dressed up or down and have been quite durable so far - I've had them for almost 8 months now and they aren't showing any negative signs of wear. I would highly recommend the Drover Denim jeans to anyone looking for a comfortable classic with great fit and the perfect amount of stretch.

I just got the Patagonia Lightweight Hoodie in Glass Blue, Large and it is exactly what I was hoping for - a summer version of my Patagonia Upslope Fleece Hoodie. Lightweight, but warm - it's not too thin, it's definitely a layer that makes a difference and warms you up. The cotton/poly blend makes for super soft, and seemingly pretty durable material. Fit is true to size and this hoodie has a nice, slightly tailored cut, perfect for wearing over t-shirts or lightweight button-down shirts. Highly recommended, I may have to get another color.

I have the ExOfficio Reef Runner Shirt in the Light Lapis color and it is excellent for hiking and fishing on the hottest days of summer. As mentioned in a previous review, this is a very lightweight shirt; personally, that's why I bought it - because it would give me 30+ UPF protection and remain breezy and cool on hot days. It does run a bit large, so it may be a good idea to go with the smaller size if you are on the fence or in-between.

I got the Black Storm Parka from Uber for Christmas this year and have been quite impressed with the high quality fit and finish from this emerging Norwegian brand. (Think of Arcteryx-like quality) The fit is excellent for me - I am 6'2" 185 and the large is excellent. I was looking for a longer, parka length insulated coat I could wear traveling to various meetings in the US and Europe - it had to keep me warm and dry and be adaptable to whatever winter weather I encountered, and the Black Storm Jacket has been the right tool for the job. I really like the removable insulated liner - when it's raining but not too cold, I just remove the liner and it is a full-waterproof raincoat. With the liner in, this jacket will keep you warm even if the temps drop below zero F - with the liner removed, I plan on wearing this jacket throughout the warmer months as a rain jacket, when the temps are in the 50s and 60s.

The new FuseForm Mountain Jacket from The North Face is a great new take on the old classic - I've been wearing mine for a little while now and am impressed. The FuseForm construction adds durability and gives the jacket a rugged, yet refined look. I like that it still retains the classic lines of The North Face's original Mountain Jacket. I've worn it for everything, and it's as comfortable in a downpour as it is going out for dinner. The Eagle Blue Heather color is awesome - it almost has a denim look to it, and while it is subtle, I've been surprised by how many people compliment the jacket and ask what it is. I have a feeling that this jacket is going to last me a long time - it was soft and comfortable right out of the box, and has shown no signs of wear so far. If you're looking for a new, unique jacket that boasts high style and functionality, The North Face FuseForm Mountain Jacket should be on your short list.

The Patagonia R1 Pants are amazing - they are soft, comfortable and warm next-level sweatpants. They were originally designed to wear under waders, and they are great for that - personally, I wear them around the house, under my ski pants on very cold days and to and from the gym. They fit well and stay on the waist - I really like the open cuffs too. Highly recommended!

I have been wearing the Icebreaker Sphere Crew for quite some time now, and it's quickly becoming my favorite Icebreaker T-Shirt. It has a great relaxed fit, and the lightweight Merino/Tencel blend is soft and perfect for wearing as a stand-alone t-shirt or a baselayer/undershirt. I recently went on a long-ish trip to Europe where I had to pack light - this was a critical piece of my kit because it is comfortable, and didn't get stinky after multiple uses without washing. I am 6'2", 185 and the large fits me well.
