Send it in the cold
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 145 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

I'm very vulnerable to cold weather, but I can wear this and be fine when I tackle the wall when its cold. Works great under a shell for insulation and of course under a down jacket. It breathes well, stashes small, and dries quickly. I bring it on all my trips.

Nomad
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

no·mad
noun
a member of a people having no permanent abode, and who travel from place to place to find fresh pasture for their livestock.

Steep and gnarly, Crush it. Fast and flowy, pin it. Big climbs, stomp it. There's a reason its called a nomad. It goes anywhere, and finds its "fresh pasture". I find myself doing laps in the park, shuttle runs, and all day epics all in the same weekend on this bike. The build kit is absolute perfection. With the new pike and monarch plus the ride is smooth and predictable. 11 speed drivetain means you're never feeling held back by too small of a range of gears. XT brakes give you confident braking power.

The bike is sick. I'm gonna go ride mine now.

So don't dress like one. Forget the matching bright neon and cheetah print. Throw this shirt on because you dont give a fuck about anything but punching it into rocks and sending it!!! It breathes well so you can rip all day and stay fresh.

I run these pedals on both my AM and DH bikes. They're stupid strong and not too much heavier than their more expensive counter parts. The added cage helps when things get rowdy. Additionally the cage gives you the confidence to still charge those rocks even if you aren't clipped in.

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!

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.

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.

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.
