Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small

This glove isnt the best pair i have owned or like a pair of Hestra......but for the money you cant ask for a beter glove i agree with other people it does run small but my hands get super warm so i bought these to ski in. if you get cold and your hands always freeze you may want to look elsewhere

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large

ive had these now for years and they are still holding up. the gore-tex is still waterproof and perfect ya i have had to wash them a few times and apply the nicwax or whatever water repellant as line any jean they will get soaked on the outside and feel cold.....but thats the beauty since they are jean they take a beating.......yes they run a little large but they are board pants and should be real baggy for movement and comfort its how they are suppose to be

These are a great pair of minimalist shoes. the shoe is differently better on sharp shale rock and rocky terrain than 5 fingers. i usually have a nike 11.5 or salomon 11.5 and these i am a 10.5

The waterproofness of these had been very good and i have had no leaks to date. i would differently recommend these for a great spring, fall, and summer waterproof shoe but i do not recommend these for the winter i would more than likely go with a salomon gtx shoe

these are on sale right now i noticed so for the price you can't beat it

i have the older version of this pack and 4 years later it still looks new. this is after being tosses across the ground and into the car and going through trees skiing with this on my back. the suspension system really pulls the back against your tailbone which helps it have a great balance. i would def rcommned this pack and the only downside is with the quality of this pack and how it is lasting i am not sure i am ever going to need another winter pack again.

as always the light no frills construction you may get with arcteryx but the pack feel great on your back and is light and all materials are over engineer so you know it will last. you will never be disappointed with BD quality you just may not be as impressed as some of the gadgets arcteryx and mammut have

anytime i buy BD i am never let down. their gear is deffinetly minimalist design but with everything run through the ringer so many times you never have a piece of the pack fail. the back does not have a ton of support as it is a smaller pack but the availing feature is great for one thing .....obv if you get stuck in an avalanche....but another use is when you are skiing super deep powder where you have a hard time getting a breach because you just get mouth fills of snow. you can put the mouthpiece in and ski in those powder situations and it makes breathing much easier so i have used this tool a bunch of times.....great company and products

i have an older version of these and love them. extremely comfortable and look great its like wearing a comfortable pair of jeans on the mtn. their only downfall is that when it snows the denim material gets wet and heavy and even though it does not penetrate the goretex membrane the denim material becoming wet does get cold and thus makes you feel cold and like the pants are leaking. this model solves that but feels almost like plastic and is not denim like at all. session still makes a denim looking paint......still get them a little bigger u want the room in these

these are a great sneaker the tow box and forefoot is wide while the heal is tighter and the arch high. these fit my feet extremely well i noticed right away the high arch which my foot needs. i would not say this shoe is as good as the Salomon XA Pro 3D Ultra GTX but it is a very good shoe. the soles grip well, i have walked a 6 hour hike on the appalachian with a backpack and they worked great, i also use them for my trips skiing and they are warm and do not get wet walking through sow and slough to the lodge. although they aren't like the salmons which your feet never feel cold which makes them feel wet while they are not these are a great shoe at the price point

These are the best pair of sneakers/trail runners i have ever owned. these shoes are so good i have bought 4 pair of these. they are water tight i have never had an issue with them leaking and have used these from my pair of shoes i wear skiing as it is a 2 hour drive and i want something comfortable but waterproof for when i walk to the lodge through the snow. they are great for light trail running they obviously aren't super rugged made for boot conditions but they can handle a day hike on the appalachian trail. for goretex shoes they also do not make your feet extremely sweaty but are nice and snug. they fight slightly narrow in the toe box for mid foot. if you buy these u will fall in love

im 6 foot 210-220 and would consider myself an advanced-expert. these skis are awesome i live on the east coast and was worried about the 98mm waist but with the 177 i can't complain these things go onto edge so easy and just ride over everything. on steep bump runs i was able to actually turn and maneuver faster than with my old skis that were an 87mm waist. can't complain if u wanna rip you love these skis.......if your a heavier skier and most skis tend to feel too flex these skis are your answer. have only skied hard surfaces this year since i am on the east coast killi, stratton, and okemo so farcouldnt be happier with a ski for the east coast.
