Another banger from Coal, I love the Moose as they were all over the place where I grew up back in Maine. Now I just need to get the Bear to appease the diehard Boston Bruin fan in myself. Very comfy. Nice fit as well. I normally am a 7 5/8-3/4 in a fitted so I have a big dome. Normally I do not mess with snapbacks much due to hating only being able to snap 1 button. I have never had that issue with a Coal snapback, I can get 2, maybe even 3 with the proper hair cut. I feel a lot more comfortable with a snapback I do not feel is gonna fly off my head at any moment. Keep it up boys!

I had a 18 OZ wide mouth bottle and I had the misfortune of a curious puppy chewed my cap all up. I got this as a replacement in yellow and I am back in action. It seals very well and also fits my 32 and 40 OZ size wide mouth bottles. Only draw back is the hole is very small and I wish I could get a better flow of water, especially with ice in the bottle. It has a tendancy to get blocked by small ice cubes. Other then that, I love the colors of my Black bottle and yellow cap. A homage to my Boston roots.

I had a lot of options to choose from when picking a water bottle to take up to Strugis this year for Bike Week. During the rally, ice becomes like gold. Being able to keep ice frozen all day is vital to my success as a vendor. I had narrowed down the options between this and the YETI. I knew from experience with Hydroflask that it would perform just as well and I jumped on this in Sage, my favorite color. I had a blast and the 40 OZ bottle from Hydroflask kept my body extremely well hydrated all rally long. Tell all your friends and family! Vacuum insulation would keep my ice frozen over night even.

I bought these just before my trip to go work Sturgis Bike week and they are absolutely incredible. What with being on my feet for 14+ hours a day, having proper footwear is crucial. I have tried it with the normal footbed Arizona options and they just did not cut it. These Soft foodbeds were incredibly responsive and very soft on my foot pads. I have pretty sensitive feet and a very high arch and the cushion in the food beds was just what I needed. I would highly recommend these to anybody I know and I am sure buy a few more colors soon enough. You cannot go wrong with Berks!

I took this tent out as a rental from our gear closet a few weeks ago for a 1 night camp out and man was I in for a treat. The tent set up moderately easy and I actually did it myself. The hot springs in Idaho had some in climate weather and we tossed the Rain fly on right away and it rained off and on all day. The tent never took on any moisture and myself and my girl and our dogs stayed dry the entire time we were inside. We actually went to bed with it raining fairly heavy and when we awoke it had snowed about 2.5 inches and the entire tent was covered. Still we were bone dry and pretty warm what with all of us cuddled up. This may be a 6 person tent but it is crazy light. We car camped it so we brought a Queen size air mattress and wanted enough space for our dogs to sleep and to walk around comfortably. I hung up our head lamp in the middle of the tent and it kept the entire inside nicely lit. All in all I have zero complaints about this tent and I am going to be buying one myself very soon. THIS TENT ROCKS!

I LOVE THE REALTREE CAMO, I am a 37-38 and even the XXL was very snug but it eventually worked when I took out the inner liner. I love these pants nonetheless and I just gotta trim down my buddah belly and I will be right as rain!

I love this baselayer due to the warmth they offer but the length and the tightness of the bottom of the pant makes it difficult to not have them inside my snowboard boots. I would rather these be knee or 3/4 length. Awesome for Apres ski tho!

So I got this and I wish now that I would have bought the Polar version for this time of year due the warmth factor. At the end of the day, this UV Buff is great for cutting down on wind but also those harmful UV rays. I generally never get a Goggle tan, more like a gnarly Goggle Burn and that can really be intensified when you are at 10K feet and you get that already bright sun intensified reflecting off of the snow. This really allows me to run worry about greasy sunscreen wish I hate putting on. I think I will get a lot more use later this ski season and then in Spring for Fly Fishing and also this Summer for hiking. Happy with the versatility and the material. Wish it was not so long.

Airhole got this one right! No more FOG!

So I had been looking for a good hood for a long time and WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER! This hood is super rad. It is a 2 layer so very warm and wind resistant. I love that I can wear a thin beanie and my headphones underneath. I am a heavy breather and the actual Airhole is an awesome concept, really allows me to expel my breath outward and not up into my goggles. You can break, smoke, talk and even sip on a straw with the Airhole. You can tuck it right under your chin just like a traditional buff if need be. I would like it if they made this larger so it had a looser fit but then again, I have a big head. All in all, I am Stoked and cannot wait for some blower powder days up at Snowbird!!

I do not wear anything other then Smartwool Ultra Light socks for when I go snowboarding. The only brand of socks you can rock 2 days in a row without washing. Feet smell just fine.If you run cold then I would recommend a foot warmer or a thicker sock. I picked these up in Tennis Ball Yellow since I wanted to change it up from the traditional Black. I am in LOVE!

So I must be honest, I love the idea of the Airhole. I am a pretty heavy breather when I snowboard and the idea of my breath not fogging up my goggles is key. I wear this just like a normal buff and it works great. I can use the Airhole or tuck it under my chin just like a regular buff. I have a pretty gnarly beard and this gaiter does not make it uncomfortable to wear over at all. My only complaint is the thickness. The Drylite UV is a very thin option, but I think it is going to be rad once Spring time shred season comes around and the Blue bird bright sunny days abound! For right now when the temps are a bit more frigid, I would highly recommend the Merino or Cashmere options for colder days. This Drylite UV will be great in the bright sunny days since the material is 50+ UPF rating. This product may not work for everyone but I really love it. With the Airhole you can breath, drink, smoke and even whistle at a cute snow bunny!

I love this shirt, I bought the fatigue Army Green color and it is a very well made shirt. I got the XXL and it was a bit large on me but I loved how soft and warm the shirt is. The Graphic is printed very well, on the chest as well as the arm. Viva la Volcom!

I am in love with the beanie and have only had it now for a couple weeks. I have a big noggin, wear a 7 3/4 fitted New Era, and this beanie stretches over and still has room to feel comfortable. It is constructed very well and does a very good job of blocking the wind wind I am flying down Regulator. It is a very warm and comfortable beanie for Apres-ski as well! Thick to boot

What can I say about these shoes that Vans does not with MTE?! I bought my first pair of these a few months back and I was hooked. I work up at Snowbird on the weekends and these shoes grip incredibly well walking to work across that Chickadee trail. I have tromped around in some gnarly snow and slushy conditions delivering Pizza to all the hotels up their. I have not found a in-climate weather condition that can trip these shoes up for performance. I would say the only drawback on this particular pair is the lack of the sherling lining. I have a pair of SK8-Hi MTE with the lining and those are incredibly warm. Nothing a pair of good thick socks cannot fix. I got the Ivy green option and they pair well with a multitude of outfits. Cannot wait to stomp around in them in the Spring time!

So I ordered these in the Khaki colorway thinking they would be a bit darker in person and when I got them they are a normal Khaki which I should have expected.
Nonetheless I love the pants, they are super comfy and even with a straight leg, and I have some thick thighs, these do not constrict or reduce my range of movement at all, I would highly recommend these to anyone, I will for sure buy the Tobacco color.
Oh yeah, the Bottle opener is CLUTCH

I got this in the Black/Mint colorway and I absolutely love it. I have used it already multiple times and love the warmth it offers but it is not so constricting so it does not make my Oakley's fog up. I have a pretty sizable beard so it is not always easy to find a face mask that fits comfortably!
I have a Mint green Sessions jacket and this pairs so well with it, just love that color.
If you want to stay warm and not feel like you are being choked, this this the neck warmer for you!!
