I got this for a really great price so I couldn't pass up the chance to buy it. I finally got to use it recently and I'm impressed. I slept really well during my trip. It does everything a sleep pad should. Plus its light and packs up to a decent size. For the price, its hard to say anything bad about it. Get one, you wont be disappointed.

I picked these up because they don't have Autocant and they are a pretty straight forward piece of equipment. They have comfortable straps and enough flex to go all over the mountain, which is exactly what I was looking for. They don't have as much cushion in the heel area, but that's just me being picky. I do like the fact that there is padding over the screws on this year's design. As they say, it really is a working man's binding at a workin man's price. You can't go wrong with these.

I've used this under my Alpha SV as a layering piece and I've ridden with it alone on a 30 degree day here in Vail and it worked perfectly well in both situations. The pockets are clutch because the insulation is outside of the hands so they actually keep your hands warm (whereas other Arc'teryx shells have insulation on the inside and they dont keep your hands warm). The sharp blue color is awesome and looks good by itself. I was surprised to find the hood has micro adjustments which is another added bonus.

I picked up a pair of the Black/Emerald combo for a really good deal ($60) and I've been really impressed with them so far. The frames are super light and very comfortable so you barely notice they are even on your face. The lens quality is what you would expect from an Oakley product as well. These are my new go to sunglasses for the sunny days up here in the Colorado high country.

The Seam is an awesome helmet! I've never ridden/skied a run in my entire life without a helmet and this one is the best I've ever used. Its light, stylish, and very warm. The best part about this helmet is the venting system. Other helmets (ex: Smith) have tiny vent levers that are a pain to out whereas the Seam has a large lever across the top that makes it very easy to open with gloves or mittens on. The chin strap is easy to adjust and comfortable as well. The size adjustment in the helmet is also an awesome feature that allows for a better, snug fit. Just some advice- don't try to rock Oakley A-Frames with this helmet because it will leave gaps on your forehead.

Get this helmet. You won't regret it.

So these were enjoyable at first but the more I put them thru the paces, the more I disliked them. The highbacks and straps are nice, but I just didn't like the Autocant system in the footbeds. The cushioning was excellent, but the way the Autocant works was just too awkward for me and it completely changed the way I rode. My knees were wayyyyy to bowed in, so i had to widen my stance just to feel normal and that made everything else different. I sold these and pick up some Missions that don't have Autocant.

I've been an Oakley guy for years but I picked up a pair of I/Os this summer and have used them every day of the season so far. The lenses are awesome (I have the Red Sol-X, Ignitor Mirror, and Sensor Mirror) and are extremely easy to change, which makes it really convenient for changing weather conditions. The bigger frame and lack of full frame makes the peripheral vision on these goggles excellent. Its also nice that the lenses aren't insanely expensive to replace, as compared to Oakley replacement lenses that cost an arm and a leg.

I really have enjoyed these boots so far. I am living/working in Vail this winter and decided it was time for new boots. I previously had the Salomon F22, but wanted something a bit softer so I opted for the F20. 15 days in this season and this boot has performed up to the task. They are a bit softer than the F22, but still responsive enough that I can take them anywhere. They aren't the warmest boots of all time, but they are mighty comfortable which makes them easy to put on nearly every day. Grab yourself a pair if you are an all mountain rider looking for one boot to do it all.

This is one of my favorite pieces of outerwear that I own. It has very soft fabric and it feels good on the skin. Its a great layering piece, but is also awesome to wear on cool spring and fall nights. Its is also stylish enough to wear out to the bars. I only give this 4 stars instead of 5 because it is a thermal fleece so it doesnt block any wind and i did wash it once and found a hole after around the neck. otherwise it is a great piece.

I picked one of these up for my brother's girlfriend and she absolutely loves it. She says its is super warm, very comfortable, highly useful, and stylish. She really likes the fleece liner and pit zips, along with the stretch of the fabric. I've been around when she's wearing it and have heard an array of compliments about the jacket so it makes me happy that I got her something other people are envious of and something that she can use all the time.

They cannot ship this particular jacket to Australia.

I picked one of these up a few weeks back and it hasn't let me down. I enjoy how simple it is to use, easily adjustable strap, lightweight and the multiple settings of lighting (especially the flashing mode when i am riding my bike at night or just want to party to a strobe effect). I only give it 4 stars because it doesn't necessarily do anything over the top, but it works for everything i need it for.

This is my first piece of Stoic gear so I didn't really know what to expect. I got this last week and have run it through a few different situations. Overall, I'm impressed with how its handled everything. Lightweight, breathable as everyone else mentions and I do like the hood. On the downside, I think the wrist enclosures are pretty poorly designed and I wish it had more pockets. I would recommend it if you are looking for a jacket to put through the paces.
