The snappy, stiff tail of the Proto CT was a bit of a shock on the first run, but after a few chunky turns I made my way into some deep tree stashes, over a few little drops, and then sent a 15'er on an exposed chute where the stiffness and added camber truly excelled. It's super-fast on groomers and once I did get into some deeper pow, the rocker really shined. The only reason I gave the 154cm I rode 4 out of 5 is because it's a bit stiff for my style and size (150lb, 5'9") so the EVO's playfulness is more for me. Otherwise, this boards kicks more ass than Jet Li on a kill-binge.

It doesn't butter, but is spreads sweetness all over the hill if you know how to push your own limits. Took the Proto CT154 out on a 6in + day at Canyons in Park City and banged out a few tree lines with more than recorded snow levels, hucked a 15 footer along the way, laid down some deep turns on groomers, and got my fair share of face shots (considering the below-rad snow depth right now) on a steep, north side ridge. The CT has a lot of pop in the tail, but that equates to a stiffer feel overall. While a true park rider can kill a big line effortlessly thanks to the CT's blunted tip and tail and ultralight weight, it's not as forgiving as the EVO. On the other hand, it rides as well switch as regular, with the exception of a slightly shorter edge when you make switch turns. Bottom line, this CT is one you want to show off in public.

Dy-no-mite! The cleanest looking skate shoe that has every graced my foot is actually a tribute to holligan-ism. And since soccer fans and skaters are criminals by nature, I can see entire stadiums of fans celebrating with gangs of skaters ... all sporting the Lakai Manchester. I picked up a pair of the light blue suede (because I never got to see Elvis gyrate) and choose not to skate in them due to the fact they look too damn good.

Lots of good backpack brands make decent kid carriers, but none compare to the comfort and feature-function of Deuter. For the kid: the adjustable seat (which is the top of the underside gear area), 5-point features mesh-backed, padded, and fully-adjustable straps with quick-release clip, side pads support the little one's upper torso, quick-release buckle on one panel eases entry/exit. For the parent: Mesh, ventilated back padding, wide waist belt with small zip pocket, quick-adjust back to work with smaller or larger peeps. Side mesh pockets up top are just right for kiddie drinks. Hydration sleeve keeps parent hydrated. Oh, and what a frame! Light, durable, and perfectly designed to distribute weight and provides a foot rest for the little one ... put the kickstand down (on a level spot, of course) and chill for a bit. What more can you ask for? Nothing else compares.

Great fit, but only if you go down a size. I'm a solid 9 in most brands (sometimes 9.5), but I read the reviews and took the sizing seriously and ordered an 8 ... bingo! Perfect fit. About the boot; high-grade leather feels great and flexes well. Streamlined Vibram soles are nice and firm, which I've had in the past and appreciate for the longevity and comfort. Believe it; the firmer sole will lead to less foot fatigue. Notch at the achilles is great and should be ideal for motorcycle riding this spring/summer.

Just got back on a bike after a long stint living in the moutains and forgetting how nice urban life can be. My wife and I only have one car so I spent some time chatting with the the bike guys at Real Cyclist and decided the steel horse with the sweet logo and leather trimmings was the way to go instead of another car. Can't be happier with the single-speed set-up for the morning/afternoon commute and frequent trips downtown for some drinks or a simple grocery run. Clean looks grab lots of attention and positive comments. Tubes that came with it were a little weak, but new ones have been solid since replacing. All-in-all you can't beat the price for a new (complete) bike!

After checking out a few less costly brands, I came across this Timbuk2 classic, with a little bonus stripe for those who may take to the streets after dark. Stoked on the sale price and really impressed with the craftsmanship and durable materials. No laptop sleeve on this one, but no problem as there are multiple organizers/pockets on the inside and a waterproof zipper w/ behind slip-pocket just under the flap. I wasn't sure about the stripe at first, but I've come to appreciate the added safety when walking, riding, skating after dark. It's not too big for everyday and was perfect as a carry-on for my latest flight.

I love this lightweight beast! Never Summer's rocker design is a huge improvement from my older, camber stick and my skills started to rise above the plateau I'd hit after the first few hours. This board is the perfect all mountain ride for those who transition from the groomed trails to the steep gnar on a sick pow day. From face shots to steep lines, the Heritage XR bridges the gap between new tech and old-school toughness, just right for bigger riders with mammoth-sized feet.

Picked these up as a replacement for Burton Missions (worked well for many seasons) and I'm pretty stoked so far. Pros: super-cush ankle strap, convertible toe strap (wear it as a cap-style or over top of boot), extra dampening under binding, ratchets don't slip as much as Burton. Con: Check, check, check the ankle/toe length adjuster (it's just a clip, not a screw like most brands and mine came undone, which could have been result of stashing in car and the clip inadvertently released)...once again, checking your bindings (any brand) regularly is a good habit. That's it for the not-so-sweet. Other than that, these things are as comfortable as a lounge chair in hell.

For protection from rain and snow in limited exposure, the Marmot Precip has been a great gift from my father. He doesn't backpack or ski (anymore), so for his limited-activity lifestyle encompassing mostly National Park visits and weekend drives into the mountains of Colorado, this jacket is ideal. Don't be fooled into thinking you'll get the same water protection as, say Gore-Tex, but "I don't have to spend the money on that expensive stuff". This rain jacket does a good job of shedding precipitation during limited exposure. This is not the jacket for 3-week backpacking trips in regions with high annual rainfall numbers. If that's what you're looking for, enlist the power of a Gore-Tex or another shell with a "guaranteed waterproof" membrane. But, if you need a lightweight, packable shell to store in your car or pack for the occasional shower that doesn't last for days, the Precip is for you. Note: Durable Water Repellant coatings (http://www.backcountry.com/store/search.html?mv_session_id=K58uXert&q=Nikwax)on all water-resistant/waterproof clothing needs to be re-applied (once a season if you seldom use the gear or multiple times per season with heavy use)!

Picked this jacket up for my wife to meet her need for a "warm, down jacket that doesn't make me look like a marshmallow." If that sounds familiar to you (or any guy out there looking for a warm jacket for your lady who has similar feelings about the more puffy styles), then I highly recommend the Aconcagua Down Jacket. True to some other comments, the shoulders do seem a bit more broad, which is good for my wife with self-described "swimmer shoulders". At about 5'2'', the medium fit her just right...not too short or long and fits great under a shell when she rides. Not too shiny either!

My wife was not satisfied with any of the so called "Diaper Bags" we looked at for our son. So we turned to bags at Backcountry and after researching Haiku, we learned the founder of Haiku actually designed this as a diaper bag with a slot for a laptop. Guess that shows the needs of parents these days. Although we plan to never need a computer when we out with our son, the bag is perfect. Large inner pockets hold cream, toys, diapers, clothes and other necessities and the two bottle holders are the same faux leather as the bag with tight elastic to hold in the tiny bottles. Plastic guards on the bottom reduce wear and prop it off the ground about 12 inch. The material seems super durable and we can't wait to use it for this guy and maybe if another one comes along later!

Got this as a replacement for a midweight crew I have been wearing for years. Totally impressed with the weight, fit and overall comfort during our first few weeks of cold temps in Utah. Can't wait to rock it as my base riding this season. A little loose in the collar, but you Ute linebackers are gonna be warm when you stomp on them fancy Cougars from Happy Valley!!
