Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have always been a fan of Deuter, but recently found myself using a smaller camelback until I purchased this pack. Since then, this hasn't left my back. The mesh screen has kept me cool and the large reservoir has kept me hydrated. Perfect for lugging pads or gear for longer rides. As always, the Deuters are super simple to clean.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Having raced for my entire youth I was finally convinced after a trip to La Grave to trade in the Tecnica plug boots for the AT setup. Needless to say, the Factors I initially moved to were awesome, but I have always missed the fit and feel of Tecnica. Since stepping into this 3 buckle boot I have been thoroughly impressed compared to the performance of the Factor. Both the Factor and Cochise are good, but I just like the Alpine feel of the Cochise. 80% of my skiing is via lifts, so I def prefer the alpine fit. As for the boots, they are a bit cowboy tipped in that those with wide feet (read me) have a tough time getting them dialed. This is also compounded by the light weight plastic that tends to go back to its original shape after getting it punched. So far though, psyched to be back in Tecnica and looking forward to exploring some good hikes over the next month.

I have about 50 miles on these and have loved every moment. I ride a SC Highball and since upgrading earlier this winter the traction for cornering, climbing and heading down some of the local rock gardens has been nothing short of spectacular. I considered the Rocket Ron, but bought these on a recommendation since the performance increase definitely outweighs the speed benefit of the lighter tires.

My new coat has hand sleeves to keep the coat from getting pulled back. With these gloves low profile around the wrist it makes a perfect combo. The ability to pull the liner to dry is a huge plus as well. I would not recommend these if you are looking for a glove to put over your sleeve as they are simply too short.

I also purchased the coat along with the pants and love the duo. We had good weather over Dec and put these things through the ringer. The have a strong attraction to dirt, but clean easily. The fit for me was perfect 5'10"and 180 lbs (size Medium). I love the pockets and strong material. I don't ever see myself tearing these I have done with weaker pants. Overall, highly recommended

Tahoe had a brilliant start to the season and this coat handled everything from the wet snow to blower days without ever getting uncomfortable. Transitioning from my Mountain Hardware coat I noticed less pockets and a slimmer fit, but the simplicity is appreciated as I was never looking for anything. I purchased the bobs with the zip on connector and can attest I had no snow in areas that would send me back to the lodge for some hot chocolate. Overall, love this and would recommend to anyone looking for a great technical ski coat.

After owning both a first generation Sportsworks and Thule T2 I was excited to hook this up and see how it worked. Downhill rig, 29er, and two road bikes easily fit with a very wide range of tire sizes. The extension is light and easy to assemble and remove. Two bike configuration is def lighter than the competition. The four bike configuration is heavy, but compared to my old racks it is a huge improvement. I have yet to use the bike stand, but I like the option. Lastly, it still only slows down the smarter thieves, but I like the integrated locks. Note that the keys for the add-on are different than the original.

Despite being close to school colors I actually bought these since I heard the lacing is comprable/better than the boa's on the North Face. After a few weeks of hiking and running I can say I love these. After 4 TNF shoes in a row I haven't had any regrets moving to these. They are great for me since I am pretty neutral and they provide great support for a recovery ankle.

Used this on a two week trip to europe and it was perfect. It stayed well within the 50lb limit despite being packed to the gills. I added some wine on the way home and it kept everything in place and in one piece. The compartments are great for organizing. I highly suggest this for small to medium gear hauls. It is def not a massive duffle, but that isn't what I needed.
