I really like the fit and style of this shirt. Nothing super special here but it definitely is a quality t-shirt. Comes in a ton of cool colors as well! I am 6'5" and weigh 200lbs. The XXL isn't too wide for me which is something I always have problems with. Let me know if you have any questions on this shirt.

I got this for commuting around town and have been very pleased. Fits my head well and is very well priced. Nothing fancy here but that is exactly what I wanted. Comes in a number of cool colors and will for sure keep your dome safe. Let me know if you have any specific questions on this helmet.

I got these for my dad and he has been loving them so far. He uses them in the gym for working out and he has only had good things to day. At first he wasn't use to the wide toe box but now he says they are super comfy. I don't own any yet but I am thinking this might be my next shoe when I need them. Let me know if you have questions on these or any other Altras.

Yeti makes some of the best products out there and this item is no different. Not too bulky and never fails to keep your brew nice and cold. Not to mention all of the super cool colors this Colster comes in. Let me know if you have questions on this or any other Yeti products.

I didn't have these or even know about them until one of my buddies saved one of my tires on a trail. I had got a pretty good hole in the wall of my tire and these plugged it right up in a matter of seconds. I was able to replace the air I had lost and ride to the bottom with the plug still in. The next day I bought these and always have them with me when I am on the trail. Please let me know if any questions come up on how these work or anything.

I have only used these a handful of times but so far I am very impressed. They are a little bit wider, as most Keens are. But they run true to size and don't need much time to break in which is awesome. They seem to be super durable so far but only time will tell when speaking to the durability of an item. I haven't worn them when its super hot out but they seem to be pretty breathable as well which will be nice once the Utah heat is in full effect this summer. They are waterproof and will be awesome on those days when the rain has caused some mud on the trail. Another cool feature on these boots that I am stoked about is the mesh lining. A lot of boots can be super hot and my feet tend to sweat more than the average human. This sweat wicking mesh lining should help with this and provide more comfort. Keen has always been a reliable brand that makes great product day in and day out, these are no different here. They come in multiple different cool color variations and I think you will be very pleased if you decide to purchase these boots.

I really like this jersey and it breathes very well when climbing. I gave it a 4 star because I wish it was a little bigger. I got the biggest size and it still is a little tight on me. I still wear it and love it but it would be perfect if it was a little bit looser. Look at all the cool colors in comes in!!

I have ridden Five Tens for the past few years and switched to these this year. Surprisingly, I have been loving these more than my Five Tens. I have about 10 rides with them so far and I have been so impressed with the grip and durability these seem to have. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a new bike shoe to ride with their flats.

This shirt is super soft and very lightweight. The best feature is the UPF rating so you can protect your skin from the harmful rays. I have hiked and also surfed in this thing. It is a little baggy for surfing but it still did the trick for a rash guard. Patagonia is doing it right!

I got this bag to pair with the Big Agnes Q-Core sleeping pad and it is amazing. I rotate when I sleep switching sides and this makes it so I do not roll off my sleeping pad. The sleeve in the back of the bag is easy to use and the sleeping pad slides is very nicely. The coldest temps I have used this in so far is high 30's but it has been super warm. It packs down nicely and I plan on using this for backpacking this spring. Let me know if you have any questions on this bag or any other Big Agnes products.

I got this pan for car camping and it is a good one. I got the 12 inch for bigger meals and it has done the trick every time. GSI Outdoors makes great products and this is no different. Easy to clean and the handle folding into the pan is a pretty cool feature.

I have about two rides with these so far and I love them! They are lightweight and the shorts seem to breathe very well. I also really like the waist belt feature, it makes it easy to tighten and loosen the shorts. Probably will end up picking these up in another color.

I personally got this shirt because Zion is one of my most favorite parks I have been too. The quality of the t-shirt isn't bad and seems to fit my slim body pretty well. But the main reason I got this was to support Zion and all the national parks this country has to offer.

I got this a couple weeks ago and this is my new go-to base layer. Super comfortable on the skin, and I like that it fits a little bit looser to the body. I am 6'5" and weigh 205, a XXL fits me perfect. I have worn this on warmer ski days and it seems to breathe very well. I also have worn it on days when it is well below 10 degrees and it is a good base layer to throw layers over. I plan on getting this in another different color with my next order. Helly Hansen makes great products and this is piece is no different. Let me know if you have any more questions on this product.

I wear these under my ski pants and they have treated me very well. I have used these on super cold days and they have kept me warm. I also have used these on warmer spring skiing days and I do not overheat. They seem to breathe very well and are super comfy next to the skin. I would say that they run true to size! Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns on these.
