Fit: True to size

The first thing that stuck out to me was how well the strap worked and felt. One of the best feeling and fitting Velcro strap designs that I have used that really does give the pedals an even better felling. The soles and rubber feel good on the pedals around the clips and are respectably stiff.

Much like the name this jersey is a respectably light weight jersey and that ventilates very well on the hot summer days. This jersey is a little more relaxed fit so if you are into a little easier easy fitting road kit you will start here.

The most supportive saddle I have ridden to date. The design of these saddles fit the seat bones for anyone the best that I have seen, has a lot of room for adjustability, and has plenty of room for body position movement on the saddle itself. If you like a supportive saddle for any level of riding you are looking at it.

Though this hat is thinner it will still keep my head and ears warm down to the low to mid 30s. The back and sides of the hat come down enough to cover the ears entirely and covers roughly half the neck, the front of the hat covers as much as it can without getting near the eyes. I can wear this hat comfortably in the early and late winter.

Much like a spare tire a tire plug is something that each mountain biker should carry on them. Lezyne plugs are the only plugs I carry and have treated me well by not having any issues after being used correctly. They hold tight and stay tight, much past the useful age of the tire itself.

Castelli is a brand that likes to make very specific and unique gear. With that being said if you are looking for a true summer jersey for the faster and harder rides this is it. This jersey does tend to favor the leaner so heads up on a tight shouldered fit.

Trying to find the right grips can be tough but the right ones click when you find them. I still prefer a rougher grip for the trail bike but I found this was the perfect grip on the dirtjumper for me. Just enough suppleness on the top of the grip to be take up harsh bumps and chatter but get the grip needed for pushing the pace the moto style waffle pattern underneath. I'll ending up keeping this grip around awhile

Good slim fit for a warmer glove, decent feel on the grips but you can still feel some bulk, have ridden with them down to the high 20s and my hands have still kept warm. Happy to say I may have found my winter riding glove

Little shorter than I thought it was going to be and a very impressive design. The C02 inflator is a very sweet touch (quick mid race repairs) and with a very simple makes it a pretty solid carry on pump

Stan's is not the only sealant out there anymore so keeping an open mind is a must with these brands showing themselves to the world. I have only started using this sealant and so it has not gotten everywhere and has been very cooperative. Not too much time yet but i plan on running a full season and seeing how it really performs over time

This will be my second time grabbing this multi tool. My first Crankbrothers 17 tool lasted me easily 5-6 years and survived the always wet Pisgah Forest on a daily basis though each season. Each tool has been used at least once and has still proven (personally) itself to be all I need.

Camped with 2 friends in Moab in September even with the Rain Fly on the tent never did get too warm inside. There was plenty of room inside for three people and tons of room under the 2 vestibules. The tent comes with plenty of stakes and guy lines to secure multiple ways. In one word this tent is easy, semi open oval pack bag makes it really easy to unpack/ pack and the tent is super easy to set up.

Not a super fancy jacket but one that has good coverage on the upper body, good ventilation, and sections of velcro that connects another slip of fabric over the zipper make this a very solid jacket for the wet. Plus that camo just looks so good
