This jacket is bomber, spoke with one of my customers about the product, and found out his impressions. He said he had a 3 day trip up to the Adirondacks, and it down poured on them, and the North Face Dryzzle Jacket held up super well for him, kept him completely dry. Great Outer-Layer. And he was really pleased that he had brought it with him.

I bought these as a gift for my friend Mason, who needed them for a canyoneering trip, and for surfing, here is his impressions:

These Booties have served there purpose very well. I have been surfing in very cold water and have had warm feet the whole time. They are also super easy to get on and have never had problems with comfort. 10/10!

I bought this as a gift for my friend Mason, and here is his impressions:

So far I have been very pleased with my O'Neil wetsuit. I have been surfing in Northern California and have been surprised how warm I have stayed. Also pleased with the comfort. I've never felt uncomfortable in it. I would recommend this suit to anyone.

Fit: Runs large
Height: 6' 3"

As the other reviews say, this jacket does run large, had a customer purchase a small, who is roughly 5'11" and about 165 lbs and usually wears a medium, however the small fits perfectly, with room for a light layer underneath.
Quality product from a quality brand.

I bought this as a gift for my friend back home, who I grew up skiing with for several years.

He said, he used it as a mid-layer all year skiing at various resorts in Vermont, and Maine, and really enjoyed it, fit him very well, even with the added beer weight he put-on during the winter.
Quality product that performs as you expect it to!
Runs true to size!

I bought this piece as a gift for a friend, and only have his impressions, and feeling on it.

This is an Awesome piece, I am stoked with it, and have put it through the wringer, thus far. I've used it as a layer, while skiing, and on long runs, as well as casually around town and out to dinner! So far I have zero complaints.

Love the fact that it is stretchy, and adjusts with your body as you move, and it breathes!

I got these Ski pants as a gift for my buddy Johnny, and I only have his initial impressions.

I received these pants as a present, and really enjoy the,, I matched them with the Spyder Hokkaido Insulated Jacket - Men's, definitely a stylish look. I had a long-weekend trip up to Sunday River, in Maine. I had no complaints as far as the performance goes, they are waterproof, and performed well for me, in the east coast conditions, the hint of insulation added a nice touch, which kept me comfortable while riding the lift, and on the mountain.

Overall a solid pair of ski pants, I would recommend them to friends!

If your looking for a functional, around the house, or even casual around town, or driving slippers, then these are for YOU! I've always been an L.L. Bean slipper/moccasin fan, and branched out and tried out these because they were reasonably priced, and from what I've heard, quite durable.
So far so good, I have had them for almost two months, and they look just as good as when I took them out of the packaging!

I want to preface this review by saying I bought these gloves for my buddy Nate, and here are his initial impressions.

He bought the Mediums in the Rasta color option.
He said that they do run a little large.

Here is a quote from him on them,
"The material is quite stretchy and comfortable on your hand. I was excited when I received the gloves, but ultimately had to return them because the fingers were too long. I went against my instincts and ordered a size larger than usual based off of the size chart."

I gave this as a gift, and have gotten some feedback, but I figured I'd throw up a link to a helpful youtube video as well, that will definitely give you some good info on this product.
MY gift recipient is super stoked on this product, and says that it has helped her to become more active, and even subconsciously motivated her to continue to hit the gym, or go for runs, and hikes.

Here is that link to that helpful youtube video:

I got the Black/White/Silver, L/110mm and I was gunna mount them on my DPS Wailer 112RP Tour 1's, however I opted to return them, and swap them out for the kingpin to cut down on weight and try and crush the uphill on tours.

So I only got initial impressions of them, but I did order a second pair after receiving my first, they were awesome, looked burly and high performing for the downhill, definitely was gunna be a sturdy, elastic binding, that would handle drops and gnarly terrain with grace.
I was stoked on them.
I found this youtube video that has some helpful info on them, feel free to copy and paste the url, and give it a watch, if your interested. By no means am I trying to claim this video as my own, just thought it was a well made video. Video made by Basin Sports out of Killington, VT.

This is a jacket I got as a present for my mom's boyfriend.

Here is his review:
This jacket is a classic. Well designed, good quality and very versatile. Its not too bulky and hot to wear while driving but it’s also good for most outdoor conditions except serious cold and storms.
The size is as expected, fits well and is very comfortable. Similar North Face jackets I’ve owned have worn well and I expect to be wearing this for a number of years.

I bought this jacket for my mom.

Her is her review:
I’m very pleased with this jacket. North Face’s quality is consistently very reliable.
The fleece is soft yet insulating. The jacket is not too bulky yet it copes with all but the coldest conditions.
This isn’t the first Dinali jacket I’ve owned but the first time I’ve had the hooded version and I’m expecting to wear it for a very long time.

I am a big fan of Patagonia gear in general, but this is an awesome backpack, either great for a short day hike or something like that. Also nice trendy bag that you could wear around campus, or a quick business trip, I got no complaints on this guy.

Here is a lil youtube video, I am by no means trying to claim any of the content as my own, I just thought it was a helpful review.

Marker Lord SP Ski Binding
5 5

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

I got the Black/White/Teal, 90mm.
I only have initial impressions of this beauty, but so far I really like it, first off it is a very clean binding, as far as looks care concerned.
I have these set up on the DPS Cassiar P95, 185 cm, Pure 3 (Granada Green).
This boot is a pretty special one out on the market right now because it is accommodates both AT, and Alpine boots safely. Definitely a nice tool to have in your quiver. The burly, made-for-ripping Triple Pivot Elite toe features a pin system that you adjust for AT or alpine boots, which
helps makes the touring versus hitting the resort decision a little more manageable. Plus a lot of skiers these days are moving towards wearing touring boots a lot more frequently because of how comfortable they are, so to have a binding in your quiver that'll allow you to do that is a nice perk.
Definitely another burly binding made by Marker, got a wide range of Din settings on there, so you can mix it up.
Here is a little youtube review made by Basin Sports out of Killington, VT. By no means do I mean to steal any of the video content here, or claim it as my own, just thought it was a helpful video.

These + Moment Chipotle Bananas
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So the Jester Pro's they don't lie when they say this is a hard charging burly binding, it is definitely a fun one, that allows you to have a pretty high, and variety of different din settings.

The power transmission is no joke on these boys, no matter the terrain you throw at it, if your charging deep and steep, it is super responsive.

The Triple Pivot Elite toe and Inter-Pivot heel provide enough flexibility to keep you locked in while maintaining your fluid skiing style. The binding is manufactured to handle all sorts of terrain and is designed for high levels of energy absorption preventing some double ejectors, and will handle some sketchy situations.

I'd say this binding is a great buy, and looks pretty awesome with the Moment Chipotle Bananas.

I also threw up a youtube vid: Marker Jester vs. Marker Jester Pro Ski Binding Comparison and Review, via youtube. by no means do I mean to take that video as my own, just as some helpful info on the 2 bindings.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So I got the Sriracha Cuzco/Green Sol-X Mirror/Red Sensor Mirror, One Size, and absolutely love them!
As well as the Black/Blackout/Yellow Sensor Mirror, One Size, and those are super sick too!

Super cool look, and good range of visibility, it isn't like other goggles that sometime block a little bit of peripheral vision, this goggle gives you full range of vision.

It comes with two lens, one for darker, overcast, storm days. The other lens will be for bluebird days, and the bag it comes with is a certified lens cleaner.

Changing the lens on the goggles isn't exactly the easiest lens to change out the first time I had to to do it it took me like 5 minutes, but after some practice the process had become more fluid. The thing is the frame itself has these slots, specific for each side of the lens, and it is a little bit finicky to get it to fit super flush.

Overall great product, I'm stoked on both of mine, and they go super well with the Smith Vantage helmet.

Great Buy!

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 3"
Weight: 205 lbs
Size Purchased: XXL

So i bought this as a gift for my mom's boyfriend, who is a bit of a larger guy, but he is working on that. He says he loves the material, and that it is extremely comfortable. It is a great casual garment, very nice to have on while sitting near a fire, or around a campfire.
He says that it fits him quite well, he is roughly 6 foot 1 and around 250 plus (I'm guessing) I got him an XXL, which was a recommendation to me.
But great shirt, and definitely is nice comfy casual wear as well as a nice warm layer to have on short camping or rafting trips.

Again read the review before looking at the height and weight dimensions I have listed below.
