MSR does a great job making simple to use high quality products. I have used a lot of different tents from many brands and MSR always stands out with quality and ease of set-up. The Hubba Hubba NX is no exception and is perfect for backpacking or car camping . The weight is a bit heavier than other lightweight tents so if your looking to go ultralight it may not be for you. The rainfly provides ample protection in rain and wind but still breathes quite well so you dont wake up soggy. This is a simple, no frills tent with high quality materials, that gest the job done.

It took a minute to figure out the proper way to inflate this bag but once you get the hang of it, its quick and effortless. Plenty of space for two. and the material seems very durable. I was pretty blown away at how small this pad packs up as well. Its great for backpacking with your significant other and does not take up much space in your bag.

I used this tent a few days down near Fruita, CO. Tent set up is easy and does not take much. It is not a freestanding tent so does require staking out. Personally I prefer a freestanding tent but that is just personal preference. The tent had plenty of space for 3 people. and the mesh ceiling was great for star gazing and air circulation. Biggest downfalls came with a small amount of wind. The mesh side walls start a bit low so with some blowing sand outside the tent, we soon had sand everywhere on the interior. The rain fly was on and staked out correctly as well. The Wind was coming from the side of the tent and the front corners of the tent collapsed in very easily with 15-20mph winds. I ended up getting out and rotating the entire tent so the wind was coming head on which the poles were a bit more capable of supporting. Overall I did like the layout and space of this tent. But I was a bit surprised at how easily its functionality dropped with a bit of wind.

I have the coffee flavor and might love it a little too much. Its the perfect drink after your morning run. Not to mention the recovery benefits. I have definitely noticed a difference in recovery and my performance the days after a big run. Super happy with itand excited to try Skratch Labs other products.

I love this little band. I am a bit of a heavy sweater and when trail running or hiking it can get pretty annoying. This little guy helps keep sweat from running down my face and getting in my eyes. It has been a game changer.

These pants seriously are great. So comfortable. The fit/sizing is spot on, not too tight but not too baggy, and a little bit of stretch makes them super versatile. I always struggle to find a pair of pants that I really love but these have easily become my favorite.

With the exception of the leash, this ice axe really is a good option for anyone getting into mountaineering. The leash was a bit more of a nuisance because of how short it is. Throwing your own sling on it seems to be a better option. There are also some much lighter options out there. Otherwise it feels great in hand and gets the job done.

I used these with K2 Aspect snowboard boots. It can be a real challenge finding a good crampon for snowboard boots. These fit nice and snug and felt so much more secure than crampons I have used in the past. The tightening system was quick and easy to lock down and felt very stable on steeper rock hard slopes.

Great little lantern. I used it while car camping and it lit up the entire camp spot. The turn-adjustable knob is great when 400-lumens is a bit blinding and the hand crank for charging is perfect in a pinch

Great light weight ice axe. Used it on some spring tours and hardly noticed I had it on my back. The 68cm was a bit larger than I would like if your just using it for the final steep stretch of a climb. It stuck out above my pack a good 6 inches. But overall it did exactly what I needed and is extremely light.

This thing can take on it all. Stiff with a lot of response, its a great all mountain board. It powers through unfavorable conditions and floats through powder. Over all this thing charges. I think if your looking for something a bit more playful and forgiving this isn't the board for you. But if your an aggressive rider in search of an aggressive board. This is the one!

Bought these to replace some older basic Karakoram clips. I love that these do not stick out over the edge of your board when your walking. They are super easy to throw your board back together and the best part is how tight it holds the board together. A great concept that works super well! I would put these on any board I have in the future.

Thus far I have had no issues with this probe. I personally love the locking mechanism as it make for a very quick assembly. Reading Chris H.'s review below I can certainly see where this mechanism could become an issue. It makes me curious because I have used it in beacon parks, repeated practice search scenarios, and digging pits, but in each scenario I have put the probe back in my pack when I was finished and had not had to pull it back out later in the day. I will have to test it out under those circumstances and see what i find.

My dog has been loving this little sleeping bag. He always cuddles up next to us in the tent on cold nights but now he can sleep out in his sleeping bag and stay warm without us. It is a bit of a challenge to get him zipped up in it but I am sure that will vary by dog. Overall its made for a more comfortable night sleep in the backcountry for all.

This board can certainly handle whatever you throw at it. I had the chance to ride this in some extremely variable conditions from wind scoured snow, to heavy wet powder, to light fresh snow. It really held its own in it all. I personally love the lengthy nose rocker and the tapered tail. It definitely kept me afloat when the powder was deep and the tapered tail makes quick speed checks in tight places almost effortless.
As for the uphill, I have no complaints. The camber under foot handles well when side hilling on a slick skin track.
At first glance, I did expect a bit stiffer flex from this board. But when riding I didn't notice it quite as much.
Overall a great ride!!

I have been using this pack for the past month here in the Wasatch. It is a great pack. Perfect for a quick hot lap or a full day in the backcountry. Plenty of storage and a great design. I love the waist belt pocket. Its perfect for storing snacks, phone, etc. The draw string entry is fast when the winds are howling and you just want to keep moving.
The only negative for me which others have brought up is the A-frame ski carry. It works for my splitboard, but it could be an issue if you have a wide board. A vertical board carry would be a great addition.

Overall an awesome pack that has met all of my needs! Would definitely recommend it.
