Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have tried many MTB helmets and there is always something that doesn't fit right on my head. I tried one of these and on and knew I had to buy it immediately (bought it as soon as we got back to service!). The fit is perfect for me, and the dial tightener in back moves in very small increments to help with a perfect fit for all. Not to mention the improved ventilation and the lightness of the helmet!

I wear these for MTBing all the time and love them. Other lenses are too small and let a lot of wind to still hit my eyes. These puppies are almost like a goggle for full eye protection from wind and any debris. The Chromapop is amazing for clarity and contrast. The fact that Smith throws in a clear lens for dusk riding is the icing on the cake!

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have yet to use this, as I just got it this Winter, however, I am very excited for it. I have heard great things about Road Shower and can tell this will be well worth the investment. I'm excited to use this on the desert biking trips where rivers or lakes are hard to come by or even spraying down the bikes to keep them squeaky clean!

These shorts are super comfortable and stretchy when needed. They are great from the trail or downtown. I now own 3 pairs because they are so comfortable. I found them to be true to size.

I love these pads. I have used them for a few season now and riding here in UT, especially when in Southern UT, the lightweight, breathable fabric is amazing. I've taken some serious spills with them, and am always surprised with their protection level. The sizing can be tricky, so definitely measure before ordering.

This helmet fits great and extremely lightweight. The custom dial fit is great to really dial in a comfortable fit depending on your layers. I couldn't believe how lightweight it was. I have only used it a few days in the backcountry so far, but I am very satisfied with it's fit, performance, and most of weight savings.

I love these pants. I normally have a difficult time with pants fitting as my thighs are bit thick. These pants are tapered and still fit my perfectly in every area. Definitely will be buying a few more pairs.

Bought this as a gift and it was a hit! Keeps beverages ice cold, just as all Yeti products do! Definitely worth the investment over a cheap, foam one.

These make DIY tuning a breeze. Definitely a must have to do the job right and not have to mcguyver some home remedy. Only 4 stars since mine only lasted one winter before dry rotting and snapping, but for the cheap cost, it is worth it.

I like this harness a lot, and for the price, it is a great buy. If you are using it for serious use while backpacking or hunting, then I would say there could be better options, if you have the funds to spend a bit more. If not, these definitely will be adequate. My biggest complaint is the D loop to latch the top shut while not in use seemed to get loose over time (maybe 7 days use in the field). Now, my top constantly is popping up, and luckily have only dropped my binocs once while I thought they were secured in.

I used these for a few days already and am very happy. They are super comfortable and have a very large toe box for thick socks and/ or adding in some toe warmers too. My first use in them was in 9 degree weather. They kept me very warm, until I was sitting still for 3.5 hours straight. That is when my toes started to get a bit cold, but nothing unbearable, and definitely better than any other boots I've tried out. I found them to be true to size.

These puppies will make any boot packs a breeze. You never have to balance the hope of getting fresh lines, but also hoping some else has already broke trail on a boot pack up the chute. They will snap together to make strapping them to your pack a breeze, definitely worth the investment!
