Love it. Everyone needs one.
A man with a plan.

This travel vest is awesome. It's light, comfortable and perfect for travel - whether going through the security check at the airport, browsing a bazaar or hiking trails. Since there's a distinct lack of pictures here, allow me to describe the layout of the pockets: it has a zippered passport/wallet pocket on the lower-right on the inside; a zippered sunglass pocket inside the left breast; an angled ticket pocket inside the right breast; a cellphone pocket under the sunglass pocket (holds my iPhone just fine); a zippered pocket under the left breast pocket on the outside and lastly, a hip-pocket for camera lens storage. This is an excellently-designed vest.
This is my first helmet purchase and have only used it a couple times, so take my review for what you will. It's a great fit. Very comfortable and light. I'm one of those "fellers what gots a big noggin" and I have no complaints.
If you really need to dial in your stance, get them. The adjustable footbed lets you get this things right where you want them. A spring in one of the ratchets broke off on mine, but that's easily replaced.
A storm was coming in just as I was taking some pictures and I forgot to grab my canteen before heading back down. Oops. Hopefully it won't blow off until I can go back for it.
It took a little getting used to, but I'm a big fan of this little knife now. Ships *extremely* sharp. A note on opening; don't use the side of your thumb, use the tip. Very solid construction.
They go in your ears, not your nose. :D
Midweight Merino Ski Sock - Very warm and comfortable. They come up over my knee and I've got long legs. No problem with the construction or durability myself.
Merino Trail Sock - very warm and comfy. Might be too warm for summer though.
Bought a few pairs of the Icebreaker BodyFit200 Boxer back in the summer. Sooo comfortable. Feel like silk after a few washings.
Picked up the Arc'teryx Delta SV Glove a couple months ago. Paired with the Arc'teryx Gothic Lightweight Gloves they're super warm. Great for 15 degree mornings in the car. A little bit of grip on the palms and fingers would have been nice though. Would do well for layering under some oversized gloves.
Picked up these Arc'teryx Gothic Lightweight Gloves a couple months ago. They're a great base layer when you're on the hill. No clamminess or sweating. They would be useless on their own though, unless you're walking around the house. Not remotely windproof - not that I was expecting this. Just making sure folks know.
I can't wear aviators normally unless they're wraparound style. I look too strange in them, but these are perfect! The only way they could be better is if the lens color was more of an amber. Brown is fine though. I also don't care too much for the temple design. They look like they're just waiting to catch a jacket sleeve to go flying off your face. A straight design would be better. They're great for driving and they absolutely destroy road and vehicle glare. Great price too!
I've had this knife for about a year. It's great. It has a "Carson flipper" which you can flick with a little wrist action and it opens right up. Unfortunately, the thumb stud is just about useless to open the knife with.
I thought the fabric was a little stiff. It kind of gets in its own way. It will keep you warm, but I prefer my TNF Zot.
