I just got home from a 2k+ mile road trip from Chicago to New Orleans, with this bike rack strapped to the back of a 2012 Ford Escape rental car (SUV Crossover). Rack held up strong, i traveled with 1 road bike mounted. No Flapping, bouncing, or any issues.

This is the first bike rack i've ever owned, it mounted up quickly and did no damage to the Escape. I will be putting this on my wife's Subaru Forester soon!

Free shipping and excellent customer service from Back Country, you can't beat it.

i bought the black one. It looks like it can be hand sewn. Definately a unisex beanie. it has a liner and is very warm. the visor is large in length (side to side), doesn't stick out too far, compared to my other beanies with visors. The thread strands can get stuck on the velcro of your jacket which can be a pain.. I like this beanie b/c it can be used for casual occasions and for you more rebelious business men and women : )

This is the first Special Blend product i have purchased and I bought this jacket at 50% off! Great price for a gore-tex jacket. I bought the struggle tonal color and it looks great and received several compliments : ) The description says the jacket is just a shell, but the nylon lining does provide a little insulation versus just a shell itself. I wore this jacket in 20degree weather with strong winds and my underarmour and a tshirt underneath and i was comfortable all day. The description also says the jacket is cut 6 inches longer, and because i'm only 5'7" i was worried this jacket was going to be too long on me. Size small actually fit perfect, just the right size in length and arm length, definitely not any longer than your average snowboard jacket. Before this jacket i wore a North Face medium, so i decided to buy a Burton Cyclic medium and that jacket felt like an X Large. Beware snowboard jackets seem to run a little bigger than your average jacket. I'm glad I decided to go with this jacket than exchange the Cyclic for a small because the collar was HUGE if the jacket was not all the way zipped up. The Special Blend Autograph has more pockets than you know what to do with, but they're great to have. The only thing i would say i do not really care for on this jacket is the detachable hood. I wish the hood was connected on permanently than having the option to zip it off. The hood is big, no worries about fitting a helmet underneath. I'm very satisfied with my purchase! enjoy!

This board has changed my belief that all boards are the same. At the beginning of the season I bought a new Burton Custom and after 3 days of riding it normal, it split down the side opening like a butterfly! I bought this Agent and have used it twice so far... I feel more comfortable hitting rails, jumps, etc. I love the flex this board has but at higher speeds the board still maintains its structure and doesn't wobble. This is an excellent board, and A++++ for backcountry customer service!
