A great gift and one thing I already loved from a previous Backcountry shirt is the DriRelease. It keeps you from soaking your shirts during high activity. Today I wore this under my long sleeve cycling jersey during a 40 minute commute to the Backcountry office and once in the office I wasn't ashamed to remove the cycling jersey to a dry Backcountry t-shirt. This wasn't a lollipop commute but a hard training effort where other shirts would have been soaked.
I'm honored to mark this as one of my top shirts to wear to the pub, cycling, office etc.
Got this as a gift and have been sending it many ways while wearing it. From skiing, running and commuting to work on the bike I've worn this with amazing results. It's not your normal t-shirt that holds your sweat or becomes stinky like those poly shirts. The DriRelease does it's job and I highly recommend you grab up one of these great Goat shirts. Tough, great looking and they show your love of skiing with great Backcountry knowledge.
Send It the Goat way!!!!
Yep, no chicken dinner with this winner, only warmth and a light weight goose down mid layer jacket.
Was talking with one of our gearheads who was sporting this jacket and ask how they liked it. Emily was flowing with compliments and I stated I'd be picking one up soon as a mid layer for mountaineering. Two hours later a supervisor ask what size jacket I wanted. Hmm, go figure I just spoke about it and now I won one.
Ok, the jacket itself is awesome in warmth and the ability to pack it small for my packs. No weight to it just good old warmth. I'll be carrying this on all trips and wearing it on some of the PNW glaciers soon.
Oh yea, it also is sporting the BC goat logo letting others know that you have awesome abilities and great at hand knowledge of gear.
After a hit a run left me without a commuter bike I picked up one of the last Tahoe 2's available and very pleased with it. Right from the get go the Tahoe didn't miss a beat. Smooth shifting, great brake power with the hydralic brakes and love the air shock and the ability to lock it out when on the road. Yea, I picked up a larger frame than I normally use but at the price and the need it will suffice as a commuter. In fact I believe it will help me with handling skills on the trails as long as I don't damage my package.
In Utah we're known to throw on the shorts even throughout the winter and with the weather recently in the 60's these awesomely cool looking shorts were put to use. Love the great fit and comfort. Kuhl is the leader when it comes to shorts in my book and I'll be sporting them along with other models throughout the year inside or outside they rule.
This is the 2012 model which has the 26" wheels and at this steal of a price you can't go wrong. Grab it now!
Got these as a gift a few weeks ago and took them out to Southern Utah earlier this week for some climbing and hiking. They're a great approach shoe and have the ability to push the limits when scrambling or even some short 5.8 pitches. The sole held great and the toe rand keeps you glued in the cracks. Looking forward to pushing these even further as the weather warms up and the powder skiing comes to an end.
A recent house fire took all my clothing and I was fortunate enough to receive a pair of these as a gift. Awesome style and getting a lot of compliments from those here at work. The fit was even better as I take a 32 waist 34 length and they're PERFECT. I'll be wearing these more often at the office and nights out on the town.
Thanks to those who donated these, you rock!!!!!
Angus is right with these not being waterproof and currently softshells are not waterproof. Watch for some awesome changes in the 2014-15 season as you'll find jacket and pant manufacturers will be introducing waterproof softshell designs!!!
Unfortunately these are not. If you're looking for a pair of Salomon trail runners that are waterproof take a look at the Salomon Speedcross 3 GTX shoes, that are a Backcountry.com exclusive. They're gore-tex and will protect you from those wet muddy trail runs.
Here is the link.
Yea!!! When Alf clothing changed to Kuhl I was a bit concerned, but during the years following I've been so impressed with this little Salt Lake City company. They produce some of my best clothing and the Renegade just plain rocks!
They have breathability, loose fit (great for climbing), Stretchability, pockets galore and style for those in the city visits. There will be more Kuhl pants in my closet and on my bod.
Another awesome gift after adversity and one that restores my hope in high performance tech wear at low budget pricing. Love the stylish look while giving special attention at keeping warm and moisture free while skinning in the backcountry. Everyone needs at least one of these in their backcountry warmth clothing arsenal.
I'm 6' 175 lbs and the medium works out great!
Got this as a gift after a fire destroyed all my gear. This piece is quality in every way. Great warmth, no smell after a hard day hammering in the backcountry, no itch, comfortable and greatest of all it won't break the bank.
I'm 6' 175 lbs and the medium fit is awesome.
Yes, most definitely go with the large, as they are true to size. By the way great choice!!!
Yes, the Greenland Baffled Down does come with a 2 way zip and a jacket I highly recommend. Greatest of all is the warmth, fit, and of course Marmot lifetime guarantee.
The green color had me before hello and the ability to work well in the backcountry will see this jacket being used many more times. They claim it to be a mid layer but it's not quite as warm as what most would expect. I call it an active mid layer as it worked great at breathability while skiing the backcountry. I just unzipped while hiking up and then zipped it up for an awesome ride down. It also worked well alone with only a base layer during resort skiing at Alta in 10-15 degree weather.
Matt, enjoyed your company while shooting this and got a great shot of you giving us the thumbs up. Call me and I'll send it over!!!!
The Scarpa SL Active doesn't have toe or heel welts and will only work with strap on crampons like the Black Diamond Neve or Grivel Air Tech New-Classic model. If you're only looking for gentle glacier travel they'll work great together. Not made for technical ice where new-matic or auto-matic crampons are needed.
If you have more questions give me a call at 800-409-4502 ext 4405 or just ask for "Scooter"
Yep, Spacecraft makes it happen and the Goat keeps ya style'n. Just an awesome way to show how tough you are through the Goat logo. Flip it over and let them know where to shop for the best gear, deals and gearheads. Others will know that you're the real deal when it comes to Backcountry!
Sometimes in adversity you're given opportunities to gain awesome life and the Impulse was a plus for my base layer arsenal. I haven't had much of a chance to hammer in it, but impressed with it so far. I'm 6' 175 lbs and was given a medium and it's very generous in sizing. Maybe it's telling me that I need to bulk up some. I'll come back in a month and update it's durability after hammering on bikes, skiing and climbing in it. Meanwhile Get Your Goat On!!!
After a house fire that left me with only a couple pair of pants it was exciting to find a pair of the Roughian's delivered to my door the other day. These are great fitting and much more comfortable then my normal Carhartt go to's. I can't wait to use them during hikes this spring. I gotta say Dexter my friends dog who picked these did an awesome job!
