Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have always been skeptical of throwing some knee pads on. I didn't want them to get in the way of my riding. I put these on and the feel and the fit was there! I started pedaling thinking I am going to have to constantly adjust throughout my ride. The G Form's killed it for me, I didn't have to adjust the whole ride. They gave me enough flexibility to pedal, the inner elastic did not rub me raw or any discomfort. I'm 6' 220 and have muscular stocky legs, the XL's fit amazing!

I am in no way a pro fly fisher, in fact I am just getting into it. I learned to cast on a rental rod and was hooked! I took out the Helios coupled with the Mirage USA Fly Reel, it was like a whole new game, the feel was there, it cast with amazing ease, and almost just upped the level enjoyment on the river. Can't wait to get her back out there and hook that hog!

These are my first pair of Hokas and to be honest I don't think I would have tried them out, but had been persuaded by a co-worker. Not only do they feel stable for my feet, which I have trouble with my whole life, from Neuropathy to Plantar Fasciitis. The wide toe box has been key, and the Met-Rocker technology which takes a minute to get used to and focuses on a smooth roll from impact to toe-off.
I have been used to Ridgid midsoles to provide relief to fasciitis and was a little nervous to step into a marshmallow-like midsole, it has been amazing, the only way I can explain it! They have become my go-to trail running, walking, light hiking shoes! They fit snug but true to size after a little break in.

This short-travel Yeti trail bike is amazing! Yeti's for me in the past have been too long for me, I have always felt like I'm on top of a limo. I got on this and instantly felt like playing around and wanted to be a free-thinking park commando. With the 120mm in the front and just 100mm in the rear, it rallies on the descent and is efficient on the uphill. A 29er with clearance up to 2.4 the SB100 can shred it up and down and playful on everything in-between. I had the Schwalbe-Magic Mary Addix's on which were and are amazing! I would definitely feel comfortable on any terrain, going up, going down, getting super techy with the SB100, and from what Yeti is saying this is a bike that fills a lot of the gaps between their lines!

I was skeptical of the price tag on this and the quality that I might be getting. I can tell you that the quality was definitely there! For a fraction of the cost of the widely used Garmin and Wahoo's that saturate the market, I found that the ease of use and straightforward functions of the 410 was nice. The one-click setup using their app was fast and easy. The time from start-up to pedal was there, I was never waiting on the computer. Pinpoint accuracy with the GPS functioning was in line and matched up with competitors. The newly improved app was great and packed with info. Able to sync with my Strava without any issues. For the price, obviously doesn't have some of the bells and whistles as the more expensive computers, but if you are looking for the computer to pack you full of data and info on your rides without breaking your bank, or just getting into biking this is a no-brainer!

i have had the opportunity to ride on these tires a few times on different bikes and on different terrain. I probably don't push these tires to the max, but they will hold their own going into any burm, and I felt like I had to brake less and less the more I trusted the tire. They really just want to push it more and more to dig in and trust the nasty nobs. I would definitely put these on my personal bike and will be my next set to pick up! If you are looking to try a new grippy and rippy tire these are it!!!

I've put a lot of different helmets on this year, and I will go ahead and agree with a few reviews already posted. The fit was right M/XL, the weight (didn't even know it was on when I started pedaling) The vent system is spot on with 20, all in all, I loved it, I would recommend to my friends, and it is what I am going with moving forward, thanks Shred!

I freekin love these! If I could get away with wearing these everyday I would. The material is spot on, it stretches every way you can imagine, I feel confident with whether I am on the rock climbing, hiking, walking the dogs, classy enough to come off the lake and hit up a BBQ with friends. Wicks a ton, dries in minutes. I bought these a size up all because I like em loose, I will be honest I hate the drawstring, but all day long love these!

More colors!!!

I had a riot on the Spartan 27.5! A Big Travel Bike (165mm) that climbed really well for me. Climbing technically it was rad, seemed like the harder I pushed it the better it was. It was playful, I could get over the front of it, all around it was really solid. I felt confident, the response was there, could have used less dampening, but all around sweet bike, the price point is good, the bike lives up to its name!

I love these when I am on the trail running. As I got used to the different lenses, both rock in the situations they were made for, Platinum lense for the sunny days, and the Rose lense for cloudy or flat light days, also sweet dawn/early evenings. These glasses are classified “medium fit/large coverage.” They have a significant wrap to them which ensures a large visual field that remains unobstructed by the lack of frames. Solid purchase and I'm happy I did.

The original forefront was my go to helmet, but the new Forefront 2 is a significant improvement over the original. Immediately noticeable better fit and coverage. The 3 Position Visor that's much more stable and versatile (Which is HUGE). Similar to the original, the sunglasses compatibility is clutch and well thought out for perching shades up high while climbing. Comfortable, MIPS, I thought sizing was spot on, looks sweet, and my head is protected! Checks all my boxes...

So, for so long I have always thought backpacks like these all generally fit the same. Having the opportunity to wear many different styles/brands, my mind has been changed. I bought this and it has always felt like it wasn't adjusted quite right, I think I have played with and adjusted in every way, but haven't found that "feels so good" setting. Tons of space and well organized and set up to wear on the trail and pound the pavement during the week. All in all I am satisfied with the bag some improvements could be made.

I am just getting into trail running, I'm not a huge Nike fan in the past, after reading some reviews I pulled the trigger. The Nike Terra Kiger 5 is a light and protective, soft and sturdy shoe that is a blast to put on and run nearly all year long. It had a wider toe box that I'm sure wont disappoint many, and fit a bit small, I went a 1/2 size up and feels great. Where it lacks in mud performance, it more than makes up in dry and technical terrain. Solid well wounded shoe that you can tell Nike has put some work into.

OK, so I don't pack my Camera very often but it's nice when you are traveling in another country to just snap everything you can and not worry about Data, and room on my phone. I had been packing my camera in a sunglass soft sleeve. Picked up this Osprey camera pack, beautiful, pockets were I need them, the strap is quality and now my camera is happy and snug in it's case!

You know what you are in for when you put on a Hestra Glove. Very functional, very warm, easy to manage, great all around experience. It is so nice when heading out for the day, weekend, trip, and not have to worry about your hands and gloves being warm enough. Put them on forget and forget about it. The leather is good for wiping my goggles of snow, and moisture! Awesome

This Rab jacket is definitely a no brainer to pick up and add to the closet! The fabric is soft and stretchy, fits a little slimmer than other brands. Waterproof is on point, I wore it out during walking the dogs in a blizzard for a few hours never got any moisture inside, and breathed up to the standards Rab promotes. Will not be disappointed!

OK, I spoke with the Rep and he filed me in on the technical aspects of this jacket. From his experience and recommendation, I took it out to the resort and on a Backcountry Cat Skiing trip and was a saving grace, fit was great, so comfortable, ket me the right temperature all day. On my way to buy one right now! Can't go wrong...

Loved the Sweet Protection helmet, minus a few things. If you don't get familiar with the strap it is hard to manage with gloves on and out on the mountain. Also with the vents open, I thought it was a little noisy. Comfort wise it was Rad! All around was a great fit, felt comfortable, and felt confident riding knowing I was protected.
