useandabuse's Bio

Raised in Illinois moved to Indiana, spent lots of time driving to go play and relax in Kentucky & Tennessee.
Moved out west (don't miss the humidity one bit) and joined Backcountry. Have now officially picked up more hobbies and gear than time will allow for.

Biggest thing I've learned is that HIGH QUALITY gear allows you to go farther, faster, and helps you enjoy the outdoors more than ever regardless of the conditions.

Love the straps to get lots of layers packed away as needed. Nice features for keys & etc with specialized pockets. Little on the heavy side but not to the extent that I'm worried about it. Built to last and it's amazing what you can cram/strap/stuff into this pack for a day.
Would have given 5 stars, but guess I'm little picky on the weight. Great for riding and momentum activities with the secure fit.

I have a pair of Oakley half-jackets. However, they've gotten very well worn and wanted to try something new. The polarized lens is something you'll never do without again. These glasses are not that dark, for bright sunny conditions make sure to get the reflex lenses.
These glasses are light and breath more than the Oakley half jackets. If they last as long as my Oakley's, I will have to give the nod to these with all the features included (extra straps, lens, earpiece frames). Whatever you're doing hiking, mtn biking, kayaking, fishing, and even golfing I'm very happy with them never fogging and light comfortable fit that you can wear for hours.

Thought shirt was a bit pricey, but after wearing and washing over 12x in 3weeks, decided quality was good. I went with the XL and the fit is good (normally wear in between L & XL)so if you're not sure, size up just in case. The mesh is great, don't get sunburnt through it, but get plenty of cool air while riding. Glad I bought this shirt, probably will try some other Fox shirts due to lack of color selections.

Ventilation is pretty nice not to mention sweet styles to choose from. If you measure you're melon and its 57 according to website sizing chart, go up to a large. The only way a medium will fit is with little/no hair and at it's largest size setting. The large will tighten enough into med range. Tried several other helmets on and this was the best (roc loc 4 style) out of other GIRO and BELL brainbuckets. Happy with this purchase thus far.

So I was too cheap and didn't want the clumsy hitch mount for my truck. Originally was worried about how stable they would be. You have nothing to worry about for our normal everyday city/highway/interstate runs. They install and remove in less than 60 seconds and I bet you can get 4 bikes in a std 6ft bed. My All-Mountain Bike fits in between the wheel wells on 1/2 ton GM truck. These turned out better than I had imagined. No worries purchasing this Yakima product.

Got to be alittle careful, this doesn't always fit on most packs wide shoulder straps. Probably more designed for day packs and etc. The overnighters have wider straps and the clip doesn't quite make it across the whole way. I didn't have any problems falling off or losing despite the anything but perfect fit. That was a plus.
