I gave this to my girlfriend and now she refuses to take it off. Seriously though, she lives in this thing during the colder months here in Utah. The wool feels soft and the shirt is very well made. It is tailored well and looks great on her. I expect this will last for many years to come.

This light is awesome. It is lightweight and pretty compact. I find it charges quickly and holds a charge for the entire time I'm on the trail. I use this as a helmet light and pair it with another light on my handlebar. This makes for the ideal combination for riding singletrack at night. I think this is the best light for the money.

I love the thin material this shirt is made with. It is very comfortable and isn't too hot. This shirt would be a 5 star shirt if it fit better. I had to size up to an XL for it to fit my shoulders. It also seems about 1-2 inches too short. If Stoic dials in the fit I think this would be the best shirt for the money.

I gave these as a gift and have feedback to share. My girlfriend loves how comfortable these are. The material has some stretch and they stay in place well when she is being active. She likes them.

I needed another button up for work so I snagged this. I love the thin lightweight material. The biggest problem I have is with the sizing. I needed to size up to an XL for it to fit in the shoulders, and I am not a super buff guy. This shirt would also use another 1-2 inches in length. The XL feels short, and I'm only 5'10". If Stoic can dial in the fit this shirt would be the best bang for your buck, hands down.

I grew up wearing Vans and have owned many different models from them. It's been a few years since I have owned a pair of Vans, so I decided to give another pair a shot. These Old Skool shoes have the uber sticky waffle sole. Traction is excellent, and the soles are non-marking. The classic look is cool and I get compliments about these shoes. As is the case with most Vans, the overall construction is excellent and these are very comfortable. If you want a classic looking shoe I suggest giving these a look.

I've mainly been wearing Prana pants the last few years, and I love them. I decided it was time to try something new and ultimately I settled on these pants. They fit well (not too tight, not too loose), and have just enough stretch to allow them to move with you easily. As with most everything The North Face the quality is excellent and I expect to have these for years to come.

Don't be the one stranded on the side of the trail because a bolt on your bike has come loose. Grab one of these tools and you'll have everything you need to get you out of a pinch. With 2/3/4/5/6/8mm allen keys, a chain tool, spoke wrench, and T25 this tool offers everything you need for trail-side repairs.

Enve offers some of the best carbon products in the cycling industry. This bar is no exception. It is lightweight, stiff, and still compliant. This bar has enough flex which helps to reduce fatigue on long rough descents. The rise and sweep are perfect and help to create a responsive steering feel. At 760mm wide these are ideal for anyone riding singletrack, or racing enduro. Get one and you'll not regret it.

You've been riding your new Yeti for the last few months and loving every minuted of it. Chances are you already have a jersey and shorts from Yeti and are looking to represent when not on the bike. This hoodie is the perfect addition to your wardrobe, and allows you to rep your favorite bike brand when out on the town. The French Terry material is very soft and cozy.

This made a great gift.

The cotton and polyester blend that makes up this shirt is ideal for a lightweight shirt. It is soft to the touch and dries quickly if you get caught in a rain storm. I am 5'10" and weigh 175 lbs, and the large fits me well. I might have been able to fit a medium but I don't enjoy super snug shirts.

I picked these up so I would have something to wear on those cool Spring and Fall days when there is a chance of rain. The TruSeal material is great! Water beads and runs off the shorts while you ride. The zippered pockets are nice and are large enough to hold more than just a key or phone.

I am usually a 34-36 in riding shorts and with Fox I always size up to the 36. These fit me well in a 36. These are some of the longer shorts I own which makes them ideal for riding in damp cool weather. Overall I am very satisfied with these shorts and I would recommend them to anyone who rides in the rain.
