This is a great looking watch but the one I bought in All Black already has a couple scratches in the bezel to the metal base, not something I'd expect from a watch of this price. Hopefully the other colors don't have the same issue but this is the third Nixon watch I've had issues with and will not be buying their products in the future.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I lost my original pair of Frogskins and decided to give these a try. They look great and are lightweight. I particularly like the construction of the arms. I've accidentally sat on mine several times and the arms easily pop off before breaking. I bought mine in Black/Ruby Iridium. The picture's a little deceiving, there's a lot more pink than it suggest. They're only orange/yellow at extreme angles, but I guess I should have known that given they're Rudy lenses. Biggest complaint would probably be the price but that's kind of the cost that comes with buying Oakleys.

I lived in Jackson for three years and this is somehow the first pair of Mountain Khakis I've owned. I bought mine in Retro Khaki but am also eyeing a pair in Truffle. I like the stretch fabric a lot although I'm curious to see if it wears out. It's soft and makes them very comfortable. The pants also seemed reasonably priced to me.

Picked this up in red for mid-season skiing and in yellow as we roll into the spring here in the Wasatch. Easy to apply, reasonably priced, and works as advertised. It's great to be able to wax my skis myself whenever I want instead of having to shell out for my shop to do it.

I continue to be impressed by the quality of Filson's products. Like their other products I've seen, it's very well and thoughtfully constructed of quality materials. I trust it will last me to a long time. On top of that, it looks great and has a great range of pockets. My 15" MacBook Pro doesn't fit in the two side pockets but just about anything small should. Hah, that probably means it's just time to get a MacBook air. I bought mine in Tan.

I've been wanting to begin tuning my skis own my own for a while. This kit is exactly what I needed to pull the trigger. The vise is great and can accommodate skis up to 155 mm underfoot, which should cover almost anything short of a pair of Gary Waynes. The bench is heavier than it looks or I expected but probably could still use a little more weight for working on alpine skis, but that would also cost you much more. The tuner can do both your base and side edges. It's great for travel but I would recommend something more serious as one of your first upgrades. This is minor, but mine didn't come with the Sport Manual the description suggested it would include. Overall, this is a great starter kit, especially for the price it was listed at.

I've been caught enough times in the backcountry without cell reception and my partner out of sight that it'll be great to finally have a way to communicate with them at all times with this radio. While regular radios can be bought for cheaper, BCA's ski specific product justifies the difference price for me. The mic seems to handle well with gloves. I keep the base unit in my pack and the mic easily attaches to its shoulder strap. Both the battery life and range have been great so far, I love that the battery's rechargeable. Psyched to have this radio as part of my backcountry kit.

I've had my eyes on this kit for some time as a backcountry source for my iPhone/GoPro/camera/beacon and finally got it! The solar panel can either be directly plugged into a device via USB or used to charge the battery pack which then can recharge your devices. The kit is small and packs up nicely and has a convenient zipper pocket to store the battery pack and any cords. Comes with four AA batteries and a AAA adapter but no AAAs. It's also well constructed and durable. An all around great product!
