Familiarity: I've used it several times

now, I'm no warren miller, but the movies I made were pretty cool. they showed what I was shooting at and had pretty good sound pick-up. But after a year I'm losing the love... it feels like the novelty is wearing off. I probably am better on the other end of the lense.

I wear this shirt on my mtn bike in all kinds of weather. 96F here today and it felt comfy during my 2 hr lunch ride over green mtn. It feels good under my camel, absorbs sweat and evaps quickly, and only smells like a wet goat when the wind is right. I gave up on those plasticky bike jerseys, this is my new favorite.

After the first wash it shrunk funny and was wrinkly, but it still fits right so I don't care. I am 220lbs 48" chest, and wear the xl, just like your mom.

I can sweat like a pig and this lid keeps me cool. Only thing I don't like about it is the larger than normal vents show off my bald head, and allow sunburning inside my helmet. I started wearing a doo-rag and that seems to have solved all my problems. The adjustment strap is the best system I've ever owned

I have about five pairs of these now and they are the go-to shorts for my mtn-biking stunts, commuting, and sitting on the spin-bike at the club. I took my seam-ripper and removed the cargo pockets on a couple of pairs of shorts for a lighter freer feel. But the cargo pockets work good for carrying my stuff commuting to work, or longer trail rides. I don't like the liners b/c they don't fit right, so I wear regular stretchy shorts underneath. And cotton doesn't bother me and still looks cool off the bike.

I have been skiing in these for five years. They will fit on either leg, but I like to keep the buckles on the outside. I pulled a high speed knee-dipping turn in some steep bumps that brought my knee in contact with an unseen rock. besides the sudden jolt and the ringing in my ears, my knee-pad plastic shell cracked! I believe I would have shattered my knee-cap without these pads. I immediately bought another pair and will not ski without them. I also started using these on my snowboard. Snowboarders are always kneeling in the snow, why don't they use knee pads?

UPDATE 1/4/2013
Just cracked my second pair after jumping off a big stump and dragging my knee through fresh powder and across a rock. Ordering new ones today b/c I feel naked without them.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

UPDATE 1/27/14
I'm still skiing in these boots! I get about 40 days a year in, and the liners got pretty packed, so I put footbeds between the shell and the liner. It takes up just enough volume inside to make them better than ever. BETTER THAN EVER!

After I finally tweaked the fit (with help from alpenglow) these boots make my feet happy. No longer do my toenails turn black, no longer do I dread turning right. This is my third pair of T-1's and were the hardest to get right. but boy-o-boy are they right now!

I put this on all my skis. it's stiff enough for mary-jane bumps and ripping down berthoud pass chutes, and light enough for the hike back up. I have never had a problem with either the aluminum or SS toe plate, and I'll buy either one. I frequently stomp on the heel plate and break it, and I broke a cable once, but only after heavy and prolonged abuse. I'm shaped like a hairless gorilla and this binder has done anything I've asked of it. I ride the xmountain cartridges.

I couldn't find these for a few days of early season cold weather skiing and I missed them bad. I found them in my dry-suit bag. I wear these under my dry-suit for cold-water scuba diving and had left them there after the last ice-dives I made. The material slides inside the dry-suit and inside my fly-low pants so it never gets bunched or bound. The xl's fit my 36" belly a little loose, but are tight around my mountain biking tele-turning stumpsized quads. they say light-weight insulation but I never have gotten cold with them. yet.

these gloves are everything... tough, warm, easy to use. I like the wool insides and the goat skin leather (Mike says it's the only leather that thorns won't penetrate). I like these better than the black diamond guide gloves I have, but what's up with the RED stripe across the back and the RED leather palm? can't you make it in plain old BLACK like everyone else?

I tried on about every snow helmet in the universe before stumbling upon the pro-tec B-2 snow. It snaps on my head like tupperware keeping my melon fresh. Pro-tec is the only one designed for multi-impact. The ear pad thing fits in my pocket as the day warms up, and the goggle keeper strap holds them just right. But I can't find a replacement audio-force ear-pad anywhere. Hard to come buy is an understatement, jack.

50 days telemarking on these skis and they still have plenty-o-pop. They are stable and quick through tight trees, groomers, steeps, and bumps. They don't float like my sick-birds, but I'm kinda lardy. I must be doing something right... adam called me a jerk.

I got mine from steepandcheap for $200 but they sent me two left skis. or two leftover skis. at least they are the same length.
