Any chance you will be carrying these in a 29 or 29.5?
I love starting my morning with a nice strong cup of coffee. Hiking biking, camping, skiing, touring, rafting. ...any thing outdoor related is great. I live in Steamboat Springs, CO.. Plan on living here, and traveling as much as possible.

So far these have been great shorts. They are nice and light weight material on the baggies and the liner is pretty comfy as well. Over all I'm pretty happy about these. Long enough, but not too freerideish. A very nice pair of shorts for not breaking the bank. Also i wear a 34 waist and the larges fit perfectly.
I recently picked up one of these Mid-weights in the Light grey/ Green color way. The fit is awesome.. Im 6'5" and 195lbs, so finding a Layering piece that fits well has always been a struggle for me till now. This layer is warm, long in the sleeves, looks great and is very comfy. The only downside i've found is that the chin piece is starting to pill a bit, but it could be due to my stubble? Overall, a great mid weight layer for the cold days.
I purchased these socks last month, because I needed some new Ski socks. I have been using Smartwool socks for years, so i was a bit hesitant at first. These socks are awesome, and have exceeded all of my expectations. They're light weight, and very comfy. THey wick moisture better than smartwool, and are even more comfy too. THese were a great purchase., and highly recommended for skiers looking for lighter weight ski socks.
awesome bang for the buck. Very little break-in period if any at all. I have had a pair of these for six years, and they are finally starting to wear out. super good durability. I have re-waterproofed mine a couple times,. they are also pretty warm for colder temps, but they're no sorels. Look no further for an affordable, reliable, durable and comfy hiking boot. just click that little orange button up top!
So i picked one of these bad boys up at the beginning of the ski season. and it has been awesome. i have yet to edit all of my footage. its tough going through all the winter footage. overall a great purchase with really cool abilities.
I bought this watch a couple years back, for the altitude, and barometric features. The altimeter worked better, after calibrating it and the barometer worked fine. THe actual time function was nice due to the size of the readout. After 2 months, i had to replace the battery. oh well 15 bucks. then another six months went by, and then another battery. shortly after 9 months or so, the watch stared to fall apart.. the compass would go hay-wire, and the altimeter started to become less accurate. overall, i would just buy an altimeter/barometer watch from casio next time.
These boots are great for everyday ripping. My suggestion, would be to replace the top velcro strap with a Booster strap for added comfort and versatility.
Try to air out your boots as soon as your done riding. take out the liners, and replace them when dry. also a boot heater/warmer will facilitate that, in addition to adding warmth on colder days. I typically put a little "gold bond foot powder" in my boots if they are super moist and stinky. You can also buy some cedar blocks for the more natural approach.
I bought this rack last year, and it was a breeze to install. It holds the bikes pretty well with the addition of carrying arms for the top tubes. Although i think i would invest in the hold-up or stick-up next time as far a ease of getting the bikes on and off, in addition to the stick-up holding the wheels in a stationary position. the Double down is nice for the cost though.
THese skis are super sweet... Just a heads up on any one looking at the 186 size, is that there is no swallow tail, just because there is no picture, it does state this above as well, also to give you the heads up, the turn radius is a 29m as well. cheers
This jacket is an awesome purchase. I have been super stoked on all holden stuff ive used so far. great for everyday use at the resort, and its super warm. It has super long sleeves and torso, but not boxy cut. If your'e looking for something better for back country use, I would recommend the TREW gear as well, with just a slight better water-proofing, and breathability.
This Helmet is super light, and has lots of vents. Great for warm blooded peeps. If you get cold easily, look at buying the maze. I have been very satisfied.
I boutght these from deptofgoods.com and there great. Not the darkest lenses, but great for sunny days or patially sunny. cool fit also
Ive got these in black with polarized, and there awesome. Super dark for the bright sunny days. Kepp your eyes at ease with these specs.
Of all the different Hestra gloves i have Skied with over the years....Seth's, another pair of Seth's, Vertical Cuts, Guides, and the Army's,, These are for sure the best, For a couple of reasons. First, The Price is Better than many of the gloves mentioned above. All gloves eventually hit the Crapper ( Blow out, Worn out, Waterproofing gone, etc.), meaning having to spend less on a pair is great. I have found the Seth Gloves to have the poorest construction. I have only managed to get 3/4 of a season out of both pairs of Seth's iv'e owned. Second, The fit is better out of the box, Meaning no break-in period. Just throw some Glove conditioner (provided in the small pouch) on them, and your golden. Third, Is i enjoy the shorter cuff, or Gauntlet on these better than other models as i like to have my gloves under my jacket cuffs. And they aren't super bulky like other models. granted they are not as warm because of that, but a pair of liners should take care of that no problem. My second Recommendation would be the Vertical Cut glove for the people that tend to have colder hands, If youre not keen on liners. I hope this helps anyone looking for new gloves.
super warm, Very much close to the same as the cloud nines.
I bought these on close-out last year. I have ridden in them probably 20 days or so, thus far. Had I not purchased these for such a good deal, I would have saved my pocket book, and gone with the ski-cross instead. The ski-cross or vertical cut gloves provide the same coverage and protection, for less cost. The zipper is broken again on the right glove, which isn't that huge of a deal, but I figured after sending it back to the warranty dept. once, I wouldn't have another problem with the same zipper. the Right index and middle finger have begun to blow out also. I think a $50 price tag would be more reasonable, considering I have NEVER gotten more than 1 season out of ANY Hestra glove with the exception of the vertical cuts ( Which are on the way out this being the second season). My final verdict is to just buy 1 pair of them at clearance, Or buy Black Diamond, or Kincos!
I think of all of the Hestra Gloves, These are the ones i like best. But I think the price tag is still high for just a pair of gloves. They still break down, and rip...
