Great fit, literally would wear it for 8 hrs a day 5 days a week. I lived with this helmet on. The ventilation is great with this helmet. Bought the red but hindsight would have gone with the white (for those hot summer days). Got me through many a tight spot feeling safe. Sturdy helmet and visor is a huge plus for rainy days. No complaints this helmet is a second skull.

These held up great to a rigorous summer of backcountry trips. Merino is a guides best friend. Synthetics smell / hold on to smell even after washed. These stay fresh and fit well. Not incredibly comfortable but really no complaints very happy with purchase.

Guiding trips with tons of exposure above tree line, my neck thanks me and my ears and most of my face. Cold or hot temps a buff is great. Length is great on this buff. Very light. Not constricting but stays in place. And when the week in the backcountry ends a quick handwash and its ready to go. Mo lasting smells like synthetics.

From hiking to lounging these shoes are all I really need. Very clean looking, very easy to clean and take care of. I know they are recommended for approach and have used them for that (work great), but ultimately these shoes are much more versatile. In a pinch they are useful for nearly anything. Arc'teryx made a winner with this one, as long as they make them I will buy this shoe. Also the heel folding down is clutch. 6 am and need a shoe to just slip on.. heck ya this shoe is my go to.

They feel great and wear great. They got good elasticity to them and move with you not against you. I'm a size 32-33 waist and got the 33's and depending on the day I usually go with a belt to keep them where I want them. A 32 would have been perfect, but no complaints, they are a quality pair of shorts, well made and solidly stitched.

It looks alright and fits alright and is comfortable alright. Not bad. Not special. But'll get the job done. Beware: don't wash and dry this in the machine, you'll have a yamaka when its all over and done with, but if you take care of the hat it'll take alright care of you. Fleece lining is a definite plus.

It has great elasticity, and will fit snug around your head, but comfortably so. I was looking for a hat that could work with long hair, in the past I have beanies that just won't fit all my hair, but this one works great and looks great. Also stays decently warm, Patagonia did this beanie right.

So the last few months I decided to live out of my car, in Denver, Colorado, and needed a bag to keep me warm. I did my research and filtered through 50 bags or so and decided on the Valandre Blue. I've been sleeping nearly every night for 4 months in this bag and it is a near flawless bag. Plenty of space for layers or a liner, it has a very pleasant smell, a huge plus, the stitching is tight and the loft is fantastic, I spent a week at -5 to 0 degree weather and slept soundly and at no time felt cold, cool definitely, but not uncomfortable. This bag is large and hard to pack, and has some weight to it, but when it comes to tough weather, I trust this bag. It will take time getting used to the bag, it has some confusing velcro and draw strings, but in due time it all makes sense, when it got down to -5, I sure was happy to have them to tighten the hood around my head and to block the cold from entering into the body of the bag. This bag is the creme de la creme, the master of the elements, the king of cold weather. This bag is worth its weight in gold and is well worth the 4 months of rent and utilities it saved me. I've got only good things to say about this bag.
