Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have these in a Smith Vantage helmet, and they fit great, they also sound great.

BUT.....the inline volume dial/mute button attached is absolute garbage. It continuously cuts in and out and once muted, its difficult at times to turn the volume back on. I wouldn't say I'm very happy with the product.

The good thing is though, the volume control comes as an inline attachment to the actual speakers, SO, for pretty cheap, at least you can get a set of descent head phones that can direct connect to your IPod if necessary.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great pack. Light, durable "convenient" and comfy.

Osprey knows what they are doing plane and simple. I have used it for overnights and extended Days, alike. My one gripe is that there aren't a bunch of "organizer" pockets.....Then again, like I said above, its a very "convenient" pack. The more pockets you have the more junk you stuff in them.....not always a good thing.

Overall a great pack, zero complaints so far.

Fit: True to size

These are solid shorts, buy them, don't ask questions....
Need I say more?

I have put these things through the ringer. From Zion to Moab to Jackson to Glacier and to the bar in back. They are comfy, durable, fit great with a bit of stretch, and stylish. I honestly don't know what else you need in a pair of shorts.

Whats better than having the pup out in the woods all weekend with ya when backpacking?
Having the pup out in the woods all weekend with ya while CARRYING HIS OWN GEAR.

The pack is great. It hold a few days of food and treats, along with his bed and a sleeping fleece vest. Its also fairly waterproof....found this out after a quick jaunt into a pond to chase some birds. The straps offer plenty of adjustment and once all dialed in, its like he doesn't even know he is carrying it.

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

A little background...
I live in SLC and claim Snowbird as my home mountain. I ski about 35-50 days a season and am a fairly aggressive skier.

The Pants:
I was looking for a kit that was a bit less pricy than the Patagonia/Arcteryx so I figured...with the specs, this pant (along with the JP Pro Jacket) would be a solid bet. I mean, GorePro, fully Taped seams ect, doesn?t sound bad....
Well I have rode them 1 day, and didnt rip hard by any means, and these pants are already falling apart. The material has a couple tears in them already and the stitching is coming out EVERYWHERE....literally, seams are coming apart in a number of different places. The Velcro patches to hold the bibs together are already coming undone and one is hanging by a thread, on the verge of coming completely off.

With crappy material and horrible craftsmanship....I would not recommend these pants to anyone.

Pretty disappointed to see this happening after just 1 day of riding (and I am being serious, 1 day, that?s it). I would not recommend this brand to anyone, my GF also has a pair of their pants and the same thing is happening. As for the style?.yeah they look cool, but with this price tag, half a season before they completely fall apart isn?t exactly ?cool?.
