Finding a pair of well-fitting elbow pads can definitely be easier said than done. I was quite impressed with have versatile the pads were while allowing you to flex your elbows and not feel restricted. Its construction is clearly bomber and able to mitigate a blow to the elbow. I feel very confident in the protection from these pads and am extremely impressed with their fit.

I have always enjoyed using the Pocket Rocket over the years, as it has stayed basically the same over the years. As always, it's so nice to have a light option for cooking and get you by with everything you need. The self igniter is a great addition for windy nights when you're struggling to light it.

I was very impressed with the construction of the pads as I took a blow directly to my elbow. The material is perfect to keep you protected while maintaining flexibility. My only complaint is the fit being a little loose; on a rocky ride, I noticed that I had to pull them back up several times throughout a ride.

Looking for a truly comfortable, lightweight- sleeping pad for backpacking can be quite difficult. Give it up to NEMO for making a truly amazing pad for those of us who desire comfort while sleeping in the backcountry. As a mostly side sleeper, it's nice to be so well supported on the pad no matter what position I lay in.

Ideal fit and comfort

I checked out the Slope Vest for the Teton Ragnar race. I was so impressed with the fit and breathability of the vest. It is hardly noticeable that you're wearing it while running, plus it is quite comfortable. There is just enough storage for some energy chews, keys, phone, and your water! I enjoyed using the flasks rather than the reservoir; simple to access while running without having to worry about the tube dangling around.

After years of using squeeze bottles and gravity bags, this filtration system has changed the game for me. Taking a fraction of the time and being so user-friendly makes this system far superior to most. The best part about the filtration system is being Nalgene compatible, such a cool feature!

Finding a full-face helmet that fits exactly how you want it can sometimes be hard to come by. This is by far the best fitting full-face I have ever worn, plus it is extremely comfortable. The padding doe not only sit well around the face but also secures the cheekbones to ensure there is no movement.

There has been quite a bit of change from last years Bronson. For one who enjoys a long flowy or techy descent after a fair amount of climbing, the new Bronson will keep you well equipped for that. You will find much relief on how well this bike will climb and keep you well stocked with energy for your descent. I have remained fully confident with the Bronson while riding through techy rock gardens and maximizing speed through the flow trails. On another note, I noticed that the plus size tires have their benefit with added traction on the descent, but can often make for a slightly more difficult climb.

Overall the Krestel is a great size pack for mostly any trip. After owning and trying out many packs on a variety of sizes, I have been most impressed with the fit and functionality of this pack. I would say this pack is ideal for someone who wants a pack that will be good for any situation.

Definitely, one of the more comfortable UL Pillows you can find. It's always nice having a comfortable place to lay your head after a big day in the backcountry. The only issue is the slippery exterior which will continue to slide off your pad. I eventually had to improvise by placing a t-shirt under it to keep it in place.

I had the opportunity to demo the Troy and was definitely pleased with what I noticed off the bat. I am rating it 4 stars because although I was very impressed, I feel I need much more time riding it to have strong enough of an opinion to give it five stars.

For an Enduro/ Trail mix, I was quite impressed with the climb and handling on the ascent. I have ridden many bikes of a similar built that cannot handle the climb nearly as well.

On the descent, I was very impressed with how well it lived up to its vision of as a pretty aggressive Enduro Bike. It handled noticeably well at high speeds through more technical aspects and sends jumps like it was its job. I felt very comfortable with all trail variety throughout the course of riding the Troy.

I hope to be given the opportunity to ride the Troy a couple more times and share additional feedback.

If you're like me and hate waiting at baggage claim to pick up your bag, finding a solid carry-on is a must. The terminal is right at the standard carry-on measurements for all airlines and maximizes the space you have as efficiently as possible. The two-zip interior and single zip exterior make it so easy to organize and use the bag effectively.

The Anasazi's are a good option for someone who enjoys gym bouldering and climbing. They are just aggressive enough to get into some more technical routes but are well manageable for smearing and climbing at a low grade too. I would personally favor them on a moderate scale.

This chair will definitely bring out your lazy side on a camping trip. After a long day of hiking or biking, coming back to this chair will feel like you're rocking on a cloud. The construction is very simple and easy to set up while remaining quite sturdy for your rocking pleasures.

This pack is the perfect size to fit under your seat on a flight. I was quite impressed with the durable exterior material which can definitely handle being thrown around while traveling. The bag is perfect for accommodating a laptop and whatever travel essentials you need. I would even recommend using the pack for a day hike or traveling around town as the pack has a well breathable back panel and very comfortable shoulder straps.

Sweet debut from BD. I'm excited to see more evolve now that they are jumping into the climbing shoe industry. They climb very aggressively, and I feel they are perfect for bouldering at the gym. I will note, due to the construction, I wouldn't use them frequently outside. Do also note they run VERY small, at least by a full size.
