Bright colorful patterns for days, need I say more? She's been rockin' these (4 different crazy pairs) in rotation all summer long. She has taken them camping, hiking, SUP'ing, and all around town. She says they are the "bestest shorts ever!" Keep it up Hurley!

Her measurements are above.

Primarily, I am a hydro pack user; however, even with the smallest versions out there, they can still be too big sometimes. When I first saw the Hot Laps, I knew its compact size was going to be awesome for the job. Usually, when I am on shorter rides, I really only carry the necessities, i.e. keys, phone, wallet, power snack, and/or beer. Furthermore, just like Mike states below, there is still enough room to add in some emergency fix it tools if needed.

I gotta admit though, I get a ton of flak for it when I come rolling up with it on. Ahhhh well, whatevs' I say to the naysayers! It serves its purpose, and it's what I needed.

In addition to riding with it, I use it quite a bit for trail running as well.

She was searching for some trail shoes with an aggressive grip, and the Trailroc's appeared to check off all the attributes she was looking for. She tells me that they hook up quite well in muddy and loose situations. Size wise, they fit a bit snugger compared to the same size in their F-Lite lineup. She's got a couple hundred miles logged in them so far, and the lugs on the bottom are still going strong! One of her favorite features, is their ability to drain and dry relatively quickly.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

So here I am, in dire need of replacing my current lid, its days are finally numbered. For whatever reasons unbeknownst to me (nostalgia?), I am still rockin' the skater style lid. After seeing the Segment, I knew I needed to be wearing it.

Gold Flake 500 por favor. Daaamn, talk about bass boatin' sparkles for days! Sure, there are some other more subdued colors it comes in, but I plan on using this for the upcoming season of SSCX. Best recognize!

Anyhow, wearing this thing, the fit is on point. Comfy and secure like a kangaroo pouch around my crown. But, but, but, here is where things turned my smile upside down... It gets hot, like cruise ship boiler room hot. I knew going in it only had like 8 vents, but dang, I seriously can't wear this in the summer time. Sure, in the fall and winter seasons, it'll keep me warm and toasty, but for right now, in the hot and humid south, no freakin' way.

Maybe you live in a cooler climate? Maybe you're one of those riders who refrains from having mid-ride sweat showers pour down your face? Whatever the case, if you answered yes to either of those, then this helmet is definitely for you. Unfortunately for me, I require a bit more air flow in the dome department, thus the search continues.

First off, I'd like to say thanks to Backcountry.com and TenTree for hand-selecting me to review this awesome piece of gear for the benefit of the Backcountry.com community!

Sometimes you need something a little different than your ordinary, run of the mill regular t-shirt these days. Well, say hello to the TenTree Amhesrt shirt. Chill tri-blend Henley style going on, check! Lightweight, comfortably supple, upper body covering, check! No overstated logo branding, check! Pocket on the chest for who-knows-what needs to go in there, check!

Fit wise, I am a lean and lanky 6 foot 1, 165lb'er and landed myself in a medium. In the shoulders and chest department, it fits great; however, with this particular Henley cut, it appears to be a bit shorter in the torso length than TenTree's other shirt styles. This is not a deal breaker by any means, but I would have sized up to a large for that extra length coverage if I had known.

Random TenTree fun fact as of March 20th, 2015 at 8:58pm, TenTree has planted over 4,884,120 trees! Whoa! Talk about a commitment to improving the land we live on known as earth! These guys are dedicated to the fullest.

Anyhow, I've gotta say the TenTree Amherst shirt definitely hits the nail on the head with this one. It's a great doozy to throw into rotation, especially when you're tired of wearing regular t-shirts, day in and day out.
