Familiarity: I've used it several times

I usually would throw a couple of shirts into a stuff sack and use that as a pillow or even nothing at all when in the backcountry. A friend let me borrow his when I went to Point Reyes for a 2 night trip and the difference was huge. I slept so much more comfortably because of this thing. Its soft, comfortable, light, small, and cheap!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've owned a few, and tried out countless helmets, but nothing comes close to the comfort and fit of this helmet. On top of that it is very nice looking and protective. The ratchet adjust works really well and the helmet overall has a very sturdy construction.

Fit: True to size

I bought a 32 but usually wear a 30, using the adjustable waist these fit great! The shorts are of a heavy material but ventilate really well. Plenty of pockets to stash your things if you don't use a backpack, there's a small back pocket which holds an iphone very snug. The chamois the shorts come with is the best i've ever used. It fits extremely well and still hasn't worn out after a season of hard use. The shorts are a good length for both AM and DH riding. My only problem is that the rubber on the waist adjustment strap has begun to separate from the velcro. This is something I will be able to glue or sew back together though.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I had been searching everywhere for a nice and affordable soft shell I could use for mountain biking. I bought a North Face Apex Android, but returned it due to its heavy weight and baggy fit. I kept searching and found this. The day I got the jacket was the perfect day to test it, cold, windy, and wet. I wore just a t-shirt under it and I was sufficiently warm in about 50 degree wind and rain, and more importantly kept me absolutely dry. The next day I wore it on a 30 mile bike ride, it kept me warm throughout the ride but the double direction zippers allowed me to cool when needed. A few days later I had the jacket with me in the snow. Snow slides right off it, and I stayed warm with just a thermal beneath. Bottom line, its an amazing jacket, warm, very windproof, very water resistant, good looking, functional. Keep in mind the jacket only has one pocket, and the zippers dont move as good as other jackets, the cinch cords on the hood and waist work really well and the slim fit is definitely slim, but thats what I was looking for, it also is fleece lined. Also the picture shows the jacket as black but its dark grey.
