I went through two pairs of these last season. I really like the feel and fit of the glove. The coating on the palm is super gripy, which is a nice feature, but the overall quality of the glove just isn't there. I used the liners for backcountry touring, and driving. On both pairs the stitching came apart on the thumb and first two fingers after about a month of use. If you want a pair of liners that you will only use occasionally, these would work great. If you are looking for a quality liner to use for skinning or daily driving I would pass on this liner because it will fall apart.

Great mug. I bought this last week and have used it pretty much everyday. I've had it in a pack deer hunting, fishing, and backcountry snowboarding. Doesn't leak at all and keeps your drink warm for hours. Be sure not to overfill past the fill line and you have to make sure the lid is open when you screw it on. Once screwed on, push the button to close and dump the little bit of liquid that got trapped in the lid into the sink...if you do that guaranteed no leaks. Great mug bought one for my girlfriend and would highly recommend. Be sure to get the screw top and not the pop top!

Great bindings. I started the season with two pairs of cartels. A set of 09's and an older set. The baseplate on the older pair blew up and burton replaced with a set of 10's no questions asked. The new ones are sweet. Improvements were made on the baseplate cushion and I love the way the straps feel. Cartels are definitely my favorite binders for all mountain riding and you can't beat the lifetime warranty on the baseplates...1 yr on everything else. Definitely will continue to purchase in the future and recommend to buddies.

I gave the kelly green EG1s a try since I was tired of seeing Anon everywhere on the mountain. The electrics are sweet. They have a great fit with my bern watts helmet and the color really pops. The bronze/silver chrome lens kills it on bluebird and partly cloudy days, but totally sucks in flat light and pow..as indicated on electric's site. These goggles are huge so be careful if you have a small face or try on a pair first before buying...i would say they are comparable to the smith prodigies in size. Love these goggles and would definitely recommend to a buddy.

This shovel is great. I got it because wanted a shovel with a huge blade and a ton of extension. It definitely covers both those needs. It moves a ton of snow fast, it's strong, and the extra extension is great for your back. I would definitely recommend something else if you travel light or are just riding resort slackcountry. If you don't care about the weight or height in your pack and want a rugged shovel that will dig your buddy out fast, this is for you.

silas shirley wrote a question about on December 10, 2009

So what's the deal with these? Between the reviews for the single or the three pack it sounds like people love it or hate it. With that said I have two questions. Does it leak if not overfilled and tightened properly? Does it really keep the liquid hot for atleast 3 hours? I want to be able to throw this in my pack and not worry about a spill, so I'm looking for an answer from someone who has been using this on the mountain or in the backcountry.

Thanks Angus, that's just the answer I was looking for.

If you're the type that likes to wear the vest, buy this. Patagonia put out a great piece of gear with this one! The vest has a good fit (not baggy) and is extremely warm. Great item to keep in your pack for a go to layer for extra warmth. Packs small, super light weight, and warm. Great vest...buy it.

This ride is amazing! I got the F1 Premier at the end of last season and wish I would have picked it up earlier. The board rides so smooth whether your bombing steeps or dodging trees. I'm 5-10 and ride the 161. The 61 is my preferred size for an all mountain board. It handles great on all terrain and it's not too big to throw around in the air every now and then. It's a great ride, has a three year warranty, and it's made in the USA...what else can you ask for in a board. I love this board and will definitely continue to buy NS boards in the future...sorry burton.

Cozy jacket. I purchased this last season on super sale from the local shop. Turned out to be a nice coat. It's got great style and fit. Usually wore it as a base layer which had just the right amount of protection to strip down to when hiking and touring. Also works good as a top layer when warmer like the product description says. Only thing missing, which is kind of key when wearing it as a top layer, is the powder skirt. Only other complaint is it's not made in the USA...bangladesh, but good luck finding any gear that's not made over seas! Nice jacket but I wouldn't recommend it unless it's on sale.

This review would have been a loved it but the audio system failed on my helmet as well. The audio worked from December until the last week of March. I rode almost everyday last season and always had this bucket on. The helmet has a great fit and the liner covers up the gaper gap between your goggs and helmet perfectly so no frozen forehead. The liner also keeps you nice and toasty so no need for a beanie. Great helmet and would recommend to buddies....just don't be sold because of the built in audio...it will fail.

everyone should own one these softshells. they're a little pricey, but they hold up forever. this shell is always with me whether i'm summiting or riding. great for layering and nice on top when it's not freezing. the two chest pockets are convenient and accessible. i've had mine for 6 years now (still were manufacturing in canada) and still looks great.

Love this bivy. Zero set up time (just unroll it and throw it on the ground) and great protection. The mesh bug screen is nice and the opening is a good size to get in and out of. I'm 5-9 and have no trouble with room in this guy. I can even throw my pack in at the top if my feet are all the way at the bottom. It definitely keeps you warm too. I've woken up with the outside covered in frost and had no moisture built up inside and stayed completely warm. Love this bivy and highly recommended to buddies.
