Solid skivvies

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

These boxers are pretty awesome, so comfortable and dry quickly. Took them on a trip to Barbados, land of perpetual swamp-crack, and they performed quite well. Even in the extreme humidity these things dried fast after wearing or washing. Like others have said, I'm slowly fading out my other cotton shorts for these. For reference, I wear a 35 or 36 waist in jeans and the large fits just fine. The blue is probably my favorite color in these, definitely brighter than what's in the photo below.

Decent hitch mount

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this b/c I was tired of my bike hanging off the tailgate and its a short-bed so it doesn't fit in the back. So far, it's worked pretty well. Two things I have noticed: When I had my mountain bike on there alone on the outermost pads it kept drifting down towards the bumper. Probably need to place something behind the pads to keep them in place. The other is the the hitch-lock bolt worked loose after driving a few hours on the highway and in the city a while. Its got a locknut so I'm not sure why it works loose. I tried another one and cranked down on it and it seems to be pretty stable now. Overall, I like it; had a few kinks to work out. Easy to assemble and pretty low profile on the back-end.
It does fold outward enough to where you can put the tailgate all the way down.

Speedy!
5 5

I'm always happy to support a Colorado brand and this board is no exception. It rides nice all over the mountain, carves well and is speedy on the groomers! I'm about 6'4 with size 14 feet and this board seems to fit pretty well; I'm not catching any toes. I went with the shorter 163 but would definitely size up to a 166 or more if I did it again.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

These gloves are super warm, keep my hands way warmer than the five-finger type. I bought them for snowboarding, which they'll do great, and some winter 14ers. I just took them to Copper Mtn, where the temps were in the teens, and my hands actually got a little sweaty after half a dozen runs. The gloves are nice and grippy but there's not a whole lot of dexterity. They would be ok for holding an ice axe but hard to do much more without taking the shell off.

Bought the forge grey in an XL. The color looks great and these shirts are super soft and comfortable. Im 6'4 ~215lb and went with the XL. The fit is pretty good but maybe a bit too roomy. The chest fits pretty well but the trunk area and arms are kind of wide. If I go with another collor I might consider a size down. Not much else to say, great for a date or casual work shirt.

Sweet shirt, great quality and perfect fit. I'm 6'4 ~218 and the XL fits perfectly, length, girth, and all other dimensions. I got the green color and its bright! Still a cool looking shirt but its like radioactive glow green! Wear this when you might get lost b/c it won't take long for someone to spot you. Overall, I dig it...

Bought this shirt in the green color, its a great shade of green and soft material. The color's not gonna blind everyone standing around you. I'm 6'4 ~218lb and got the XL; the sleeves are pretty long and tough to keep from poking out of top layer sleeves. The cuffs are are nice and loose so not constricting. Length is good torso wise. If I bought another one, and I might, I would consider a size down or beefing up a tad. Not duffelbag loose but its roomy. Overall pretty sweet.

This bag is pretty cool; its just the right size so that it fits a lot of crap but it doesnt take up much room in the luggage. You can cram a lot in this little guy and its way less bulky than the leather one I was using. I was a little hesitant about the blue color but no need, it looks good....

This jacket is pretty awesome; ordered it on a whim and I'm very pleased with it. Went with an XL and it fits perfectly for my frame...6'4 ~210lbs..Plenty of room for layering yet not overly baggy. Big hood to accomodate a helmet and the neck zips up high to protect your grill. Took it to Winter Park, CO this last weekend and it kept me dry and warm. You'll need a layer or two in extreme cold since its only a shell but in the 30's I was doing ok with a long sleeve tee underneath. The chest vents were nice too when things started heating up a little bit. Got some nice air flowing in when cruising down the slopes. Great jacket, I'm thinking about buying the blue one now....

I liked the shortness of these b/c I'm 6'4 and they don't go past my knees therefore I'm not really wearing capri's. But, the crotch/butt area is weird on these. Even though the waist felt fine I don't think there's enough crotch to waist material. I would pull them to my waist and w/in minutes they are pulling themselves down below my pants and exposing my gluteal fissure. They're definitely lightweight, I think BC put them in the wrong category. I'll probably go back to the full length which seem to fit fine.

Nice material,well made and warm. Fit is definitely athletic but comfortable; you won't be layering much under this unless you size up. I'm 6'4 and around 210lbs and the XL fit pretty well. Length was great in the sleeves and the bottom sat just below the hips. The hood is great when zipped up but looks insanely cheezy if it's not zipped. Almost midevil knight-like. This is kind of why I returned mine, thought I might like the zip up hood but realized I wouldn't use it that much and its a bit much to just have hanging off your shoulders. I've had this problem with another MH hoodie too, but the zipper is really hard to get started on this thing. Are they child-proofing them or something?

Just received this jacket and as luck would have it, it was raining!...It's pretty sweet; light weight, breathes, and looks good!...I'm 6'4 and around 215lbs (+or- a few) and went with the XL; sleeves are plenty long and overall length is perfect for taller folks...Girth-wise it leaves enough room for a fleece underneath for colder days but doesn't look like a duffel bag...I tried out the Marmot Precip a while back and so far I'm liking the Epic much more.
