I grabbed this option after picking up the 2L Gore option earlier in the Winter. I have used it a few times now and really cannot complain much. My only issue is the chest vents. It is not the location but the lack of mesh in the vents. Otherwise jacket is super lightweight and crazy waterproof. I love the colors as well. Cannot wait to put it to more use next season!

I bought this as a Gift for my brother but before I sent it out to him I tinkered with it to see how it works. It really does self inflate to a point where it does become feasible to use you lungs or the bag it comes with to finish off the final inflate process. My brother has told me it kept him very warm while doing late season Winter/Spring camping back in NH. Glamping is a word for it for sure. I am going to grab one for myself to do some Car Camping!

I grabbed these pants to pair up with my DaKine 2L Goretex jacket and they do not disappoint. Very comfy and true to size. Great Venting and they pair right into my jacket. I would of course recommend layering up with the proper insulation underneath for warmth but you will be dry all day long. My only complain is they placed the back pocket of the Left Side. Awesome pants!

I actually really enjoy the jacket but I have found that Wind gets through the jacket more then I would like for a Gore-Tex product. It does a killer job of blocking out moisture and fits really well. I am going to invest in a insulated jacket for the Wind issues and I have already picked up the 3 layer Gore-Tex option from Dakine. I would recommend having proper under layers but aside from that I am digging it!

This season has already been a blast and this snowboard is like nothing I have ever rode before. I myself am a bigger guy so when someone told me to take out this 145, I thought they were nuts. Boy was I wrong. This thing on the snow is like a missle and it is a blast. This is now the 2nd time I have signed it out of our Gear closet and I could not have more fun unless I was constantly ripping waist deep powder on it. I have found I even love to rip groomers on it as well. I am 100% going to pick one up soon. You cannot go wrong!

I took this board out of our Backcountry Gear closet and it was super fun, just a bit too playful for my liking. The torsional flex of this snowboard is like nothing I have ever seen before. I probably would like it more if it was a bit longer but still I had a great time on it.

So I actually took these bindings out of our Backcountry gear closet and really did not think about them being Women's at all until it came time to write this review. I loved the bindings for the week that I rode them regardless of gender. Super responsive and the tension bars on the Ankle strap made strapping in a breeze. I would take these out to ride again but I am going to buy the Men's version in the coming months. Rome is from just up the road from where I grew up and I love to support local #bEASTcoast

I had nothing to complain about when it comes to this jacket besides it being too long on me. Otherwise the jacket itself was super well constructed and very comfortable. I just need to be taller!

I love Adidas and the Busenitz collection are my favorite shoes ever. I have the standard model, the Pure Boost version and now even the Gore-Tex version. Had to grab the Cordura model this time around and I love this version. As always, they are really stylish, super cushy footbed and just a very versatile set of kicks.

So it seems the Volcom makes their pants a bit oversized so I went down from a 36 to a 34x30 and picked up the True Black which appear like Dress Pants and the Grey Vintage which are a really awesome shade of grey. These pants are great to be worn all day. I am in love for sure!

I have been using a hi-back pack for a few years now from another brand but it tends to take on moisture quite a bit. Upgraded to this pack due to the Waterproof zipper for even the snowiest of Pow days. It fits a whole lot more then you would think, perfect for keys and chapstick. I have even fit an extra PBR in there. Love this pack!

My lady had asked for this one pair of standard headphones but they come with a cord which can be restrictive. I wanted to get her a pair of Bluetooth style headphones as well. Safe to say she loves them, the standard headphones have not been pulled out of the box yet. She loves to the color and the lightweight feel. Good sound quality! I will likely buy a set in Black for myself, I enjoy the over the head aspect of these for Snowboarding.
