I think the description on these are wrong - every pair of GTX gloves I've ever had (lots) has had a the small GTX tag somewhere, and GTX hang tags. These don't have them, and they don't really feel like they have a membrane in them.

They also run really big - got the XS for my GF, and they fit me perfectly (I wear a medium in most gloves).

So far I'm not really stoked on Norrona - their stuff definitely looks rad, but at those prices I would expect it to be made in Norway, not in China. At least Arc'Teryx is still making their expensive stuff in Vancouver. I'd rather have stuff from them and Westcomb than Norrona.

I was looking for an upgrade strap for my Spark R&D splitboard bindings - they use crap Bent Metal straps and after a season are showing a lot of wear. I was hoping to lose a little weight off the bindings in the process too.

The description of these straps is lame - they lack any hardware (besides the screws mounting the buckle to the strap) and don't include any ladder straps or risers. Fine if you're just upgrading existing burton straps, but not so good if you're replacing old, worn out stuff. I'm gonna have to rob stuff off some of my other bindings or order new ladders and risers. The retail price of $40 is a joke for what you're getting here - they should come with everything.

Glad I got them half price, otherwise they'd be going back.

This is the lightest helmet I could find that fits me well - low profile, not everywhere on the mountain (like the G10 MX this year). No vents to fill with snow (they're internal under the brim).

Tip - don't buy audio earpieces. Take a pair of earbuds and shove them through the holes inside the earpieces - works perfect.

This bag would be perfect, if they hadn't completely blown the strap design. I don't know what Patagonia was thinking, but the strap can't be made short enough for the bag to sit correctly while biking (unless you're really, really tall). Everything else about the bag is great, but the strap issue made it unusable for me - I sent it back and bought a chrome metropolis instead.
