If you have ever worn Arc'teryx then you understand how seriously they take construction of their products. If you haven't worn Arc'teryx then know that you won't find a brand that takes the design of their product to as high of a level. They made this jacket for the rain, with a gore 2-layer/paclite makeup so that you can compress it and pack it. SL standing for super light makes this product all you would ever need for a backpack, climb, hike, or biking trip. Look no further and make the long term investment not only in a good jacket but your happiness on the trail.

This anorak is the real deal. Made with a breathable material that is also a great wind resistant you can't forget it when you are on the wall or out hiking in the desert. The fit is true to size, and works great with a harness over it. stretchy enough to give you full access to the mobility you need. Helmet compatible hood, and smooth zippers. One of my favorite Arc'teryx pieces now for sure!

This is so awesome!
I was headed to Jackson hole to spend many consecutive days ski touring for a backcountry event and I knew my boots would be wet, and then not have much time in negative degree weather to dry out overnight before needing them again the next day. This thing is magical, it plugs in to the wall and has a built in timer so you can set it and go to bed. It compacts easy and has awesome hoses that are long and reach down into ski boots well. I have used it more than 20 times now and it will dry my boots if they are sopping wet in 3 hrs which is the middle timer setting. It eliminates any stench you would normally get with damp or wet boots as well. This also has a USB port on the front of it for you to charge out of which is super awesome to make it more of a tool you need to get. Don't waste your money on anything else, this is it right here!

*idea: make it power-able by a power bank instead of an outlet? would be nice for times when you don't have access to a wall.

This pack is great, it looks awesome and has alot of great pockets and storage.
I also own the 25L version which is a thousand times better. This one has a waist belt that just sits against your back when not using it (I don't know why you would use it, its just two skinny straps) The zippers don't seem to be too waterproof and for a hiker/ commuter style pack it doesn't meet what I would say are the right requirements.

this hat is great, fits well and I love myself a five panel so no complaints. its pretty rigid and durable and I can tell it will break in nicely and be a go to all summer.

This shirt is rad, super soft and fits well. I own a lot of Roark shirts and they are all size XL but one thing I have noticed is that they all fit different and have different lengths between styles. Which is totally normal because of the use of different materials and different style cuts. It just makes me more hesitant when shopping the brand. Overall love this shirt and its fit.

These are quick to slip on and look great, plus they are the thing that never goes out of style. I have been wearing these since '09 and never seen them drop of the fashion chart. For the price and how long I can make a pair last, its hard to want any other shoe.

Gave these to my mom for her birthday, nothing but positive things to say. She wears them to workout and when running errands and loves them. They fit comfortably and she has a really wide foot, she says that they are snug but in a supportive way and not a pinching manner.

Well, I saw too many insta videos of the hypersmooth and had to see what the hype was about. guess I am a sucker for good marketing and people who shred the gnar really hard.
The camera is awesome, its just a GoPro, but the hypersmooth is crazy. The voice control is cool, the camera is small and the black looks awesome with the matte finish.

Giving it 4 stars because I typically only use it on POW days and it does seem to die quickly in the cold (avg about 2 hours for me before dying) I think instead of complaining about the battery I am just going to purchase a second one and put it in my pocket for when the first one dies and just keep filming all day. plus it lasts all day in 40+ degree weather so not too worried. With so many new capabilities its amazing that it lasts as long as it does in the cold.

I run pretty hot so I could definitely see myself using this year round to run in. The material in the chest is thin and stretchy but butter soft. The arms have the great windbreak style tech so they keep the wind out well while still allowing necessary breath ability in the chest and back, all around an awesome pick up with some great retro color ways to add some spice to your workout wardrobe.

These are awesome, they are super sturdy and durable. I love the new and more unique design of them, unfortunately I returned them. My style of shoe is more narrow and light, like a nike flyknit or vans authentic shoe. These were really heavy for how small they are and kinda bulky. By that I mean I felt like I was wearing some modest platform shoes. If you are okay with that, this shoe is awesome. I would just want to know that before purchasing.

The R1 is that classic piece that you will take whether you are hiking in the spring, or need a layer while skiing. It can be a functional option for any day during any season. I ordered an XL in black and it looks and feels great. Durable, long cut which I like, and great arm length with the thumb holes lining up just right. My only thing is I hate tops that have a bunchy elastic at the waist, and this has a slight one. Not quite as aggressive as the synchilla by any means, but I prefer a loose top with an bungee adjuster instead.
If you have a wide neck you might feel some pinching in your lower throat when you utilize the hood but that is normal, its supposed to fit snugger than a regular collar.

I was hoping to find something slim and modern on the fit, this pant was perfect in every way but that. It is a little more regular to relaxed fit at the bottom. I run into the problem of sizing up for thighs/butt but then having a lot of extra from the knee down. The material and stitching was durable and soft. I just couldn't make it work for what I wanted it for.

This pack is worth every penny. It has some really unique touring capabilities and they thought of all of the bells and whistles needed.
Great carry options, solid hip belt, and just the right size. The only thing would be a net or something for helmet carry on the exterior of the pack. For any adventure or expedition this is definitely going to be my go to from now on.

This hat is amazing, and super breathable. it fits great, and is so lightweight it hardly feels like I am wearing anything. the adjustability is great and it is subtle and goes with anything.
