Ideal for the minimalist
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have an earlier model BBEE pack that I have absolutely thrashed and it's holding up great. If you're not one for a bunch of useless pockets and straps then consider this one. I use it mainly for all-day MTB and occasionally as a day pack. The reservoir pocket coupled with the simple design make this my favorite pack. Hydration can be set-up left or right handed.

I just purchased this jacket and only used it a few times but it is extremely warm. The size may run just a little large but it makes for a flexible fit. It's also a little longer than it looks so the extra rump coverage is a nice bonus.

I bought this jacket to keep in the vehicle when the top is off or during cool/windy conditions. It works great when layered as well. The plastic zipper broke about 6 months after purchase but Mountain Hardwear's warrantied it free of charge.

Awesome jacket if you like a slim or athletic fit. Reasonably warm but no good under 30 degrees unless you use a good base-layer. The small arm/should pocket isn't very useful. I used this jacket all the time for about 3 years before the zipper stopped working(wont stay zipped at the bottom). All that being said I love(d) this jacket.

I purchased two pairs of these pants about 4 years ago and they are showing little signs of wear. A little on the expensive side for what amounts to pajamas but they're well worth it. Comfortable and durable.

Great shoe with limited lifespan
3 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I love the grip, feel and flexibility of this shoe. The tread makes for great running on any trail. Ran 2 5K's in muddy wet conditions with no slips. The tread however does not last forever even if you only run off-road. I logged just over 53 miles and probably 50 more that I haven't and I'd say I have about 20% tread left. That being said I still love these shoes and they still step great.
In a nutshell. 100+ miles, all in the dirt, 20% tread left.

Sits a little crooked but that's probably just my head. Comfortable fit and breaths well. The chin guard comes in handy for more extreme cross-country style riding (not rated for downhill due to the vents) and is a nice bonus in cooler weather. I wear a balaclava under mine. Most motocross goggles fit just fine as well.

I use it for trail running and mountain biking. Works great with a few firmware updates. Sometimes it can take a while (10 minutes) to find a GPS signal but not often. I've only lost one ride and that was due to a bad crash. The impact caused the watch to reset. Other than that its flawless.
