Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I am really excited to ride with this tire, the reviews make it sound like an epic upgrade, and I am frankly done with Maxxis tires as the quality on the last couple I've purchased have really been sub par. I'm writing to share with potential customers, that setting the bead on the Magic Mary was a major pain. The rubber is ultra stiff out of the box with kinks and folds that allow too much air to escape when inflating. I ended up setting this with a tube, letting it sit for 30mins or so and then retrying without the tube. Schwalbe recommends a tire lube to help the bead set in the rim (I didn't have this). I used an air compressor, a floor pump might be challenging. Will update once I've been out to shred.

Grips and rips. Has forever been one of the better tires out there for traction, with stellar corning stability as the reviews note below. Definitely recommend replacing what's on your front wheel with the minion, and moving your front tire to the rear, no reason to replace two tires at once. Giving this tire just 3-stars this go around as there's excessive sidewall Stans seepage and the tread's worn down a bit quicker than expected, overall still good grip and reliable performance.

My new favorite bottle, didn't know of the brand and then was gifted one. Mizu is always introducing funky colors with a clean aesthetic. Love the design, keeps water hot and cold as expected.

Dakine really nailed it with the Canyon series of packs. Technically sound and lifestyle inspired, the packs will work for all pursuits.

I went with the 24L for added space. I really love the design, taller/longer with a slim profile, and a top loading system that opens really nicely for packing. Thoughtful design all around. I was most impressed with the pockets through out. Three on the exterior, a larger one on top, a small fleece lined pocket in the middle for a phone and a bonus pocket for small items at the base. The interior has a larger laptop/bladder sleeve, and another small secret pocket - ideal for stashing import documents while traveling.

The exterior fabric is burly, definitely designed to take some abuse. Technically speaking, the back panel works well for ventilation and the harness straps are reinforced at the yolk/neck of the pack for carrying heavy stuff.

All in all, Dakine really nailed, it's the Dakine DNA I'd expect to see in a pack with all of the technical feature we outdoorsy folks require.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I've heard all good things about Sunski and gave them as a gift recently. I purchased the tortoise with green lenses as , and they are just as pictured. The lens quality is much better than expected at this price, and overall I expect these to hold up well over time. Great brand!
