Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've gone through dozens of goggles and different brands over the years and I've never used anything better than these. Clean style, beautiful lenses, no fog and the easiest lens swapping ever. Unless you have an extra wide face, these will fit perfectly. If you're going for a new helmet too, pair it with the Giro Ledge, it fits so seamlessly.

these are the most ridiculously burly snow boot you'll find. The classic look has been around so long for a reason, because you really can't design something better. Tough waterproof leather and rubber with a removable liner for easy drying and cleaning (your feet will sweat no matter what) so if you're looking for something to just wear at the bar find something lighter, cus these are meant for some real snow trudging. Runs big so if you don't plan on wearing two pair of thick wool socks order a full size down

This thing covers plenty of ground for two people. great for picnics and sunbathing, so instead of bringing a separate towel and blanket to the beach you can just pack this baby and do both.

Never worry about dropping your phone again. Great grip on the palm without being bulky or invasive, and the soft liner will keep your fingers warm for those few minutes while you're on the lift checking your feed to see who'd stuck at work while you're knee need in pooder.

Not much to say or complain about this shovel. Doesn't collapse to be super compact but will still fit in any ski backpack. Sper lightweight and small profile spade, gotta say the color is a little clashy but who cares, really.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

So I was really excited about this duffle bag because of the strong denier material and TPU coating. It's built really well and is true to its name with a ton of room, but I'm really disappointed and kind of confused about the lack of a traditional should carry. It has the two handles and the two backpack style straps, but if you want to carry it on one shoulder like a normal duffle bag, the shoulder strap will shift the bag all the way to your back and make the bag sag, instead of resting on your hip. I understand adding a shoulder strap but taking the normal functionality of a regular duffle bag seems kind of silly. I'd say if you're just looking for a duffle to use for airline travel, find something else. If you're only throwing this from your front door into a truck, go for it

These are the pants that you don't feel like you need to change out of at the end of your hike or climb. Soft, stretchy fabric that still feels sturdy, with a fashionable cut. I'd wear these anywhere. One downside of the fabric is that it clings on to dirt, etc which necessarily a bad thing, but if you have cats or dogs I would advise choosing a color other than black!

I've recently started exclusively wearing five panel hats and this baby is a real looker. If you've got blue eyes this color will really pop. The fabric of the hat is maleable and soft so it'll flex to the shape of your head without puffing up and folding in weird places. I wear a 7 3/4 fitted and have a lot of puffy hair but I don't have any problem getting this one all the way down. The strap on the back has a little place to tuck the excess strap away too if you need it.

Gets the job done and so far fairly durable. I've been a Crazy Creek brand guy in the past but this is slightly more affordable so I gave it a shot and I'm relatively satisfied so far. My initial complaint is that it isn't super packable, as it's a little buckle when you try and roll it or fold it into a pack.

Very happy with the color selection from Chaco these days. The green sole is a welcome variation and as always it's the most comfortable and durable sandal you will ever find. I wear them every single day and my tan lines are fierce.

If you don't know about nalgene bottles and you're doing anything outdoor, not sure where exactly you've been. These babies are durable as hell and get the job (containing water) done. The only reason to ever buy a new one is if you lose your old one. Also the best place to put your sticker collection on display.
