Weight: 140 lbs
Size Purchased: small

I bought these for my husband, my 3rd attempt at finding him a pair of x-country/skate ski pants and he instantly fell in love with them. He is a size small athletic build and they fit perfect, most importantly he didn't have to keep pulling them up when he was moving. The windstopper fabric is in all the right places and the loves the knee length zipper.

while I normaly like more compression (Forma Red or an Assos bibs), these are very comfortable, buttery soft and don't move around, really amazing for the price point. The chamois hits my sit bones and doesn't bunch where it shouldn't, The bib straps are good, nothing fancy, plenty of stretch and the leg grippers are snug enough not to move but not give the muffin leg look.

This ski has performed perfectly as my off track x-country ski. With the metal edge only being in the center I still get the edge with a shorter ski. I haven't used thease skis on groomed trail, off trail the track beautifully even in 12-14" deep snow, there have been a few times in knee deep snow that I wished for a wider ski. If you are looking to work your way through the trees or work your way up a snow covered dirt road and carve your way back down, these will do the job.

I have a Fenix3 and wanted speed/distance while on my trainer, I had the speed sensor paired in a couple of minutes and the connection when I get on my bike is almost instant after I wake up the sensor with a couple spins of the wheel. It will be interesting to see if it takes the distance I ride mtn biking to a new accuracy level.

I bought these for x-country skiing and running, they are a great fit and the fabric is quality and they do a good job of keeping your hands warm. The down side is there no wind protection layer, I have to pair these with a shell to use them in weather below 25.

I bought a pair of these for myself and my husband, we both love the fleece interior and the wind/waterproof exterior, the only issue is they run narrow. I normally would wear a medium and had to size up to get the width but they are now really long, my husband couldn't get his hand in the cuff without much work and once he had it on his hand was scrunched, we returned his.

This wax is perfect for my waxless x-country ski's. It is as simple as rubbing the sponge over the bottom of the ski, waiting a minute for it to dry and off you go. I also have carried this in my jacket and stopped and applied it during my off track x-country treks.

I purchased these for my husband for x-country skiing and shoulder season cycling and he is in love with them. If you are looking for a compression pant look else were, if you want semi fitted tight these are them. The inside is a fleecy feel the entire pant has great stretch, even where the windblock material is. He pairs these up with a compression pant on really cold days (15 and below).

New to fly fishing so the only baseline to compare nets is what my husband tells me and he says this net is fantastic. Construction of gear is something I do know and this is high quality and expect it to last me years. As for the pesky details, it holds fish and not water and the burl wood spacer looks amazing.

The feel of the fabric, style, seams are all amazing. Like Sara G. I have the issue of the pant slipping down, I'm guessing there isn't enough material in the trunk, I have what could be coined as an "apple bottom". I will wear them with long sweaters, but no yoga for me.

I was looking for a pole that could handle going from track to off track adventures and this pole does the job. The baskets are overkill for groomed tracks and they aren't easy to remove, so there is a little dork factor when you use them on track only. For the price it is a great addition to the ski pole collection I have.

I gave these as a gift and the Hestra brand is so much more than one could hope for. The leather is buttery soft, superior warmth. Although it hasn't been needed yet, since the liner is removable keeping the liner smelling fresh will be easy.

I first bought this for my husband who travels several days a week for his running shoes, he has Hoka's and they fit in there fine. He was impressed so I bought one for me and it is fantastic! I run trails so my shoes are always dusty, wet or muddy, this bag kept the rest of the items in my bag clean and I bought a second one to keep in my vehicle for runs that are extra dirty.
