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

I use DNDs almost every day for commuting, road riding, and some dirt shredding. Giro labels these as dirt gloves, but they're amazing all-rounders. Whether I'm in the drops, or on risers, I absolutely love the barfeel of the DNDs.

The gloves obviously don't have any velcro, so they look super clean, but that means they take a bit of a beating taking them on and off. I've had some quality issues with the gloves coming unstitched (mainly in the lycra expansion panel). But the feel, looks, and cost keeps me coming back for more pairs in more colors. These gloves fit me fairly snug, so I size up one size from my other Giro gloves.

I love the brighter colors and use them for extra visibility during my commutes during the winter and fall. Despite their lightness, I've found they keep me warm down to the mid to lower 40s, but anything lower than that and I'm struggling to keep warm.

Bottom line: These are winners for whatever bike I'm taking out, in almost every condition.

Riding in the Southern US, it's easy to overlook winter pieces like 3/4 bibs. But they're easily one of the most versatile pieces of kit I have. When my old performance bike 3/4 tights failed, I knew it was time to step it up. I've ridden Giro Helmets, gloves, & shoes for years, so I decided to take a chance on their bibs too.

The fit on these is incredible. They're supportive, but not restrictive. The CyTech chamois is a dream, and the Roubaix fabric keeps me cozy down to lower 30s (I tend to ride quite hot).

I love how the minimal branding looks good with all my kits, and yet I could wear it on a trail ride, and not look like a complete dork on my daily commutes either. The reflective hits on the back of each calf are unobtrusive but provide amazing passive visibility when you need it.

Highly recommend these bibs. Some of the most comfortable I've ever worn.

I just took this pack on a road trip to L.A. it gave me enough space for my 15in MacBook Pro, my iPod, and all my accessories and cords that go along with it. The straps are wide and comfortable and the large main pocket gave me enough space to carry books, goodies and all the other road-trip essentials as well. The zippers look like they'll hold up to lots of abuse. I'd recommend this pack to anybody.

I bought the Koston pack after I came to the realization that the blown zippers on my old, haggard pack weren't going to heal themselves. The Koston has everything I need. The laptop fits my 15in Mac perfectly, and the little fuzzy pouch tends my iPod like some sort of a marsupial. The straps are super comfy and the front divider pockets keep my OCD tendencies in check. The pinstripes are dope too. Buy this thing.

I heart my Oakley Paths. They cover my face superbly and they have a perfect blend of the tech Oakley look and a good fashion blend. The earpieces grip my head with enough pressure to stay on through vigorous activities, yet they don't give me a headache when I wear them for extended periods. The optics are flawless. Anything less than Oakley is uncivilized.

WE bought this pump for our Strike 2 inflatable. Not only is this pump made from burly, sturdy plastic, it pumped up our 12foot 5inch inflatable kayak in about seven minutes. Your gearheads told us this pump was unstoppable and well worth the money. He was right. Don't mess around on the shore pumping your boat up all day, get out and paddle. This pump is worth every cent.

Wow. I always wondered what all Oakley techno-jargon meant-- to boil it down these glasses kick ass. These Flak Jacks are so light and they fit my head perfectly. The XLJ lens gives me the extra coverage I need when I'm riding my bike. That hydrophobic coating on the lens makes water and other gunk bead up and fly away. I'm throwing my Smith Sliders in the effing garbage can.
