This binding is awesome because it is a good quality, sturdy and durable binding. It is not going to snap if you mess up a flip or land weird on it. They have a soft flex that is perfect for park riding or for beginner riders alike and a lot of cushion on the foot bed for dropping cliffs and hitting jumps and rails.

I purchased these socks for my girlfriend and this is what she said "Really high quality sock from a great brand that will keep your feet warm all day. I was a little skeptical of these at first as they almost feel kind of itchy but they turned out to be awesome and just what I wanted."

This is an awesome down for someone who is not so concerned with performance and is just casually looking for a warm down jacket for skiing, everyday wear, climbing, or other activities. This jacket is very warm and does exactly what you think it would. It is not a high performance piece to be compared with Arcteryx by any means, but it will definitely keep you warm during your morning commute or on the slopes. Great value!!

You could not ask for a better beginner board than this. The full rocker profile allows this board to have a catch free, floaty feel to it at all times and is definitely a confidence booster when you avoid catching edges when you normally would on other boards. This board is also stiff enough that once you progress, it will still be fun to ride an responsive on steep terrain. This board also has grip tech which means that the side wall of the board comes out a little bit right at the bindings to help initiate turns and to have more response without sacrificing the floaty rockered feel.

After I watched the video about the Oakley Prizm technology, I was convinced. I purchased these goggles and they have by far been the best goggles I have ever used. Say goodbye to the days of swapping out light/dark colored lenses because these goggles focus on contrasting colors no matter what the temperature is. I have worn them on all kinds of days and they have been trememdous!!

THESE BOOTS ARE AWESOME!! The double boa sinching system paired with the adjustable custom pad on the part of the boa that adjusts the heel eliminate pressure points and allow a really tight and secure fit. I don't experience any heel lift at all in these boots as they really hold my feet tight.

Aside from those points, these boots are really comfortabl, warm, and durable. Basically everything you might need in a boot!! These do run a little small, so I would order up half a size!

This is the ultimate piece for someone who is looking to go off the grid for a little bit. By charging this, which you can do with a traditional outlet or with a solar panel, you will be able to charge your phone, laptop, camera, or other small electronics multiple times! This paired with the Nomad13 or Nomad20 makes for an awesome combination in which you can have power forever without ever creeping back into civilization!

I got these boots for my sister in law for the holidays and she absolutely loves them! Upon trying them on, she noticed that they fit a little small especially since she planned on wearing thicker winter socks with them. So we swapped them out for a size bigger and it turned out to be perfect!! They are very warm with the insulation and waterproofing properties! I would just recommend ordering up a size if you plan to wear thick socks with these!

I feel a moral responsibility to clear up any confusion that previous reviews of this item may have caused. The reason they were saying the fit is weird is because this is a BOMBER jacket. That means it is going to have a retro style of being a little higher on the waist and not going down to the crotch/passed the crotch. That is the intention and the style of the jacket. It does an excellent job of accomplishing this! As soon as I put on this jacket I felt like I was transported back to 1995 and all the nostalgic memories of the time came back. I have received tons of compliments on this jacket as the retro style is definitely in right now.

So fret not!! Order the size that you would normally order, and the sleeves are going to be perfect and the jacket itself will feel a little short but that is the style and you will have to think about how to respond once you get 10,000 compliments.

I absolutely swear by bibs and this one is great! It is completely waterproof with the intuitive shell technology, and its very breatheable. More breatheable than most other bibs that I have tried! That being said, this is a clear choice for backcountry riding or skiing. While I was using it, i was doing some resort riding on various powder days and it was awesome.

The one thing about this bib is that it has a very thin construction and since it is so breathable, it really does not trap heat very well. So on cold days or when you are resort skiing, I would recommend wearing a baselayer and an insulated pant/sweat pants or something to help keep the legs warm

I purchased this item as a holiday gift for my girlfriend. She is normally between a small and a medium in most things and I decided to get her a small and it worked out perfectly! She loves this sweater and wears it everywhere from roadtrips to class at the university. The fabric is extremely soft and the quilted pattern/tailored fit makes this sweater more of an everyday piece instead of just a camping/sweats piece.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this item for a friend after he bruised his tailbone by landing directly on a patch of ice on the first day of snowboarding of the season. After the pain he was in, he did not imagine that he would be snowboarding again any time soon as the thought of taking a fall on his bruised tailbone haunted him. I got him this pad to speed up his recovery and reduce the fear that he had of falling and it did both of those things and more. From the first day he wore it, he took some big falls on his butt and said that he didnt feel it at all. Here we are 2 months later and he still wears it every single time he goes out to ensure that he does not get a bruise again. I would highly recommend this product to anyone, but especially to those who will be learning how to snowboard or who spend a lot of time in the park/doing tricks and land on their butt.

I was never a huge fan of bibs. I felt like they didn't fit as well as normal ski/snowboard pants, the straps always got in the way, there were uncomfortable pressure points, and they were very baggy. This Bib proved every single one of those things wrong and converted me to wearing bibs... But only this bib.

One of my favorite features about this bib is the waist strap that you can tighten for a secure fit. There is a strap that you can sinch to the tightness that you would like and then just a clip that holds it in place. It was awesome. I was so comfortable, was saved of the inconvenience of wearing a belt and avoided the baggyness of elsastic waists. This bib also has very comfortable shoulder straps. I always forget that they are there.

In conclusion, this bib is so awesome. Completely waterproof/windproof, great adjustability with no bad pressure points, and a very durable material. It is awesome.

I had been dreaming about the day that I would get a chance to wear this jacket because it looked so cool and had so many cool features and this jacket is certainly more than I could have hoped for. The 3 layer Gore Tex in this jacket allows for breath-ability unlike any other jacket I have worn, which makes it awesome for activities like backcountry skiing or others where you generate a lot of body heat. That being said, it is completely waterproof. I completely buried myself in snow while my friend was going to the bathroom in the logde and remained like that for around 20 minutes, and the jacket was not wet at all and no water had seeped through.

Additionally, this jacket has tons of pockets where you can store a variety of things in a very organized way. The tech spec for venting for this jacket only lists the collar bone zips, but there are also pit zips, which is really nice. This Jacket also fits better than any ski jacket I have ever worn. It allows for an awesome range of motion without being too baggy and getting in the way.

This review might seem a little unorganized, but that is because I am so excited about this jacket and can hardly think straight. The point is, this is the best jacket i have ever tried and I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for an elite, top-of-the-line jacket. It is worth it.

This jacket is awesome! The fit is really nice as it is extremely comfortable and not very restricting, while still allowing for a decent amount of room to layer underneath. The jacket also has adjustable wrist cuffs to get a customizable fit there, as well as wrist gaiters with a thumb look to keep your arms warm and protected from the elements. It also has an adjustable waist and hood to block out snow that might creep in or just cold breezes. The hood is awesome and is so warm.

I have not yet had a chance to take this jacket on any serious expeditions, but I did wear it to a football game where the temps were below 32F and it was snowing the entire time. I was completely warm the whole time with just a T shirt on underneath the coat so that goes to show how warm this coat is and can be with proper layering.

If you are someone who gets cold easily, then you need this jacket because it will always keep you warm. Works great for camping, extremely cold weather in the city, or on a snowy expedition. This jacket is awesome!

First off, this harness is awesome. It will do exactly what you need it to. It feels very safe, is lightweight and compact-able, and comfortable. One of my favorite things about this harness is that I did not feel the high tension, "pinch" feeling when belaying or when taking a rest or a fall on the wall. It does a really good job of distributing the tension throughout the harness so that it does not pile up in one spot.

One thing I did not like as much about this harness is the adjust-ability. Some people really like the elastic leg loops, and that is why they are quite poplular, but I am not a huge fan. I prefer to have more customization and flexibility for the harness to fit someone with really big legs or really small legs. I also like it when harnesses have two belt adjusters, so that you can get the waist belt adjusted exactly how you like it an position it straight on to avoid reaching further than you have to for gear.

Overall, great harness!
