Kenneth's Bio

I am a thirty something family man with a lovely wife (Jane) and two kids (Aislinn and Kaden). I work as an IT Director at a wonderful airline named Air Wisconsin. We are located in Appleton, WI. In my spare time I spend most it with my family. The remaining time is spending running, mountainbiking, camping, weightlifting, and reading.

I use this jacket for everything - around town, to work, winter mountain biking, winter running, snowshoeing, etc. With 2 - 3 thin under layers I have worn this up to -30 with the wind chill factor. Considering the weight and thickness this is a great jacket for wind and cold. I wear it 4 - 5 times a week biking/running to work at a distance of 8 miles. It breaths extremely well, the fit was true to size, drys fast, and it is flexible and light with lots of pocket space. The cuffs, waist band, and neck band are great for keeping in heat. For extreme weather I could see it working as a great layer. I have had it now for only a month, so I cannot comment on the longevity. I highly recommend this jacket.

I have used these boots for running and snowshoeing.

2.5 hrs is the most I have spent at one time in the boot. The weather has ranged between -4 Fahrenheit and 36 Fahrenheit.

In cold weather my feet remained warm, but not too warm. In the wet snow my feet were warm and remained dry.

The boots are very comfortable, I do recommend a low profile shoe, such as a trail runner.

The only con is the drying time of the material. However, if you store them in a dry room or near a warm vent, they can dry overnight.

I also own the FlightDeck snow shoe, they are incredible together.

I own the Gypsy version, my focus was to run and hike in them. I own a pair of Redfeather back country for hiking and exploring. I have been snow shoeing for 25+ years, so I did wear the old school tennis racket shaped snow shoes. Technology has certainly changed since then.

I have used these for outings of up to 2.5 hrs. The terrain has varied over granite rocks, trees, packed and powdered snow (surprised at how well they do in deep powdered snow). They have taken a beating with only scratches on the snow shoes. I have broken off the claws on other snow shoes, so I can confirm this is high quality gear. I also weight 210 lbs which would add to the stress.

I like the quick snap and the comfort of the boots. They work exceptional well together. There are times when snow will get into the clip holes, but a quick tap will clear it out. In wet snow I did find the snow to stick around the claws, however, this occurs with every snowshoe.

I don't have any real cons, this is the most amazing innovation for the snow shoe I have ever seen or used. I have read reviews on this product for 2 years before purchasing. The vast majority has been very well rated.
