Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've used this on my mountain bike, city bike, hiking stick, stroller, and office. The sound is "OK" if you don't have too much head wind or noise around you. I thought it was perfect for climbing or going on the flatter parts of trails. But I do like that they aren't too loud to annoy people around me. They DO hold onto the handle bars on some choppy single track without any issue.
The buttons are easy to use. You can answer calls and the clarity is pretty good.

It was time to ditch my messenger bag. I wanted something that would hold both my 17" laptop and tablet in their own compartments. This does it. Perfect to stash other gear in too. Feels good on my back so I can lug this around the airport, office, town, wherever. Good padding in the shoulders and back.
Side pocket holds my Hyrdo Flask with decent support. Probably wouldn't bike with it in there though.. That's a bummer.

I used to wear some Fox freeride shoes.. bought them in '09 and they've lasted pretty well until now. The rubber was pretty good and I'd only occasionally slip off my pedal.
Finally I tried the five-ten... I should have switched sooner. The grip on these is insane. They fit true to size and I went on a 14mile single track ride to break these in and they were not uncomfortable right out of the box. I haven't had a sole problem yet, but I haven't been on any rowdy/flow trails yet. Hiking slick trails isn't ideal with these on. Climbing and going through some choppy trails and tree roots these cling to my pedal without an issue.

Great wax. Make sure you have different waxes for different conditions, it really does make a difference. Inexpensive and Uber-FAST as described. Nothing like passing your buddies on the flats because you waxed your board the night before and they didn't.

I've been really stoked on these goggles. Exchanging lenses is quick and easy. bought the clear for night ridging. Murdered dark for the day riding, which actually has done alright in the overcast days. Usually I like a high intensity yellow (which I still prefer), but if you had to choose 1 lens to get you through a changing day, I'd go with the murdered smoke.

The cotton-poly material is pretty good. It's a very comfortable shirt. The length is spot on, but I think the sleeves are too tight and short. Still, I bought 4 of them and wear them whenever they are clean. Perfect to wear alone or under a button up. Not too heavy so they will be great for summer.

Gifted this to my brother in-law who is a non-stop active dude. He's is always training or working out wherever he goes. He needed some warmer layering options as winter approaches. This was a great choice, it fits true to size, but is long enough to keep you comfortable while you are active. Use Nikwax when washing to get the most out of it.

Bought the murdered/dark smoke, and they did not come with a bonus lens. My understanding is that they do not.
I ride with Bern brimmed helmet and these fit just fine with it. These goggles do the job, they interchange lenses easily ( I bought the clear lens for night riding) and I may keep adding to that collection. I like the top of the lens where they've given you an Armored venting protection. It is the bee's knee's, especially if you have ever ripped your foam before.

I use these under my helmet while snowboarding. they don't stay in my ear without something holding them in. But, besides that, the sound is great. the Mic works great. I use SC Methods for day to day use, I find those stay in my ear better, but aren't as convenient for using under my helmet.

Got this for my sister in-law. She needed a M since her arms are longer, but it fits great and gives her great length to her waist. Since it is a M it could probably be tighter fit, but she'll most likely have a t-shirt on underneath. Great for being active, she coaches outside in all seasons/weather. Super soft. Probably should gift her some Nikwax to lengthen the life of this piece.

After everyone in my family eventually asked for a 21oz hyrdo flask for either their birthday, or for Christmas, the kids started asking as well. This was an easy present for the nieces and nephews. Instead of using their parents when they go to school/soccer/dance/etc.. they can take their own mini version. the mouth is a little large, so there will be some spills on the kids that are younger and have smaller mouths. It is entertaining though. The hyrdo flask does it's job, keeps liquid cool/hot for hours!

This jacket is pretty sweet! Riding the lift in a storm the snow was just falling off, not sticking and getting me wet. It was very warm with just a base layer and t-shirt underneath, the temps were 20's and wind gusts to 40mph.
Not a big interior pocket for phone/ipod/anything which is my only complaint. There is an interior pocket for goggles, but it is not secure enough for something small and valuable.
wrist gators are sweet. zip to pants is sweet. adjustable powder gator that doesn't hang out of your jacket if you aren't using it.

These have impressed me right out of the box. These stay in my ear without needing to switch to the foam ear piece. The sound is really good, the button remote is convenient, and the call clarity while driving is very nice. I've used numerous Skullcandy headphones, so far, these have been my favorite ear buds.

This is a more bulky tool, so I opt not to keep this in a pants or jacket pocket. I keep this in my pack, because really, there are tool benches at the bottom and top of lifts if I really need to adjust something in-bounds. But, if I am adjusting my binders at home for the changing conditions, or switching boards, this is my go too tool. It fits my hand really well, the two-way ratcheting is a plus, and I have a bunch of extra hardware for any other home fix needed. For my needs I really only use the phillips bit.
