These are great bindings! I've been boarding heavy powder lately and they are just what I could wish for. I haven't tried them out in the park, but i'm excited. They are super easy to adjust and the toe strap can be on top of the toe or in front. I have these in black on my K2 limelight board and they are a match made in heaven surf'in on pow clouds. I don't feel that they are too stiff, just right for this Goldie locks!

I love this coat! I am 5'8" and 120lbs and I got the large because I wanted the wine color and to layer with another thick hoody underneath it. I could have gone with medium because sometimes with super gusty air will draft up. The coat has brass buttons for the outer chest pockets, wrist and waist adjustments and the button up to the collar. I wanted the button up so the jacket will last forever without a zipper, it just takes a few extra seconds to seal up. This coat I have seen is very durable I have worked out in the cold on my car and snow shoveling. I am surprised on how warm the hand pockets are. I also really like the inner pocket with a velcro seal for my phone and wallet. There is another secret pocket with velro hidden on the left side behind the brass button up edge. I choose this coat to layer with a hoody to have a look of tough, burly worker class which fits my style. This coat is made in China, but I like to support a company that still has factories here in the U.S.

I bought this jacket to use for winter and spring commute biking and camping. I have used the jacket here in Utah for winter biking and since its a shell I definitely layer under it, but soon realized that the shell is a lot warmer than I thought for biking which is great! Some features I really love are the inner zipped pocket I can use for my phone and music. I also really like the big outer snap pockets for my gloves or anything else that I don't have to worry about falling out while biking. There are hidden side pockets for the hands. The collar and hood are great for adjusting to what the weather conditions are going to be. The jacket is nice and long and the elastic gathered in the back is great for looks and functionality for keeping in that torso heat. Get this jacket while you can!

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I recently purchased this bag, but I haven't used it yet in the wild. I plan on using it for spring camping. The stuff sack works pretty well but I felt that it didn't stuff down to the stuff size listed. I tried to stuff tighter and saw that the stuff sack straps were pulling on the seams so I released the tension a little. I absolutely love the color and I feel like a caterpillar in it. I have used the bag for saving money on the heat bill and snuggling in it while watching my breathe in front of my movie.

This coat is a shell so its great for layering up under or keeping out the ran on a cool spring day. This is my snowboarding coat and I wear three layers under it wool base layer, my long betty ride hoodie and then a puffy champion hoodie. I stay just toasty on below freezing windy days.l recently brushed up against a tree and my coat held up like a champ!
