Decided to move from an older pair of Flux RL's to these and I might not ever go back. I'm basically an all-mountain rider... love to ride fast, cruise through trees, down steeps, and jump off things occasionally. The RL's have been super comfortable and forgiving but I wanted just a touch more response. The DS was definitely the perfect move for me. I feel as confident burning down groomers as I do bombing frothy steeps. If you're looking for a great all-mountain freestyle binding, check these out.
I've always been a Vans guy (Old Skools and Eras) but, until the MTE line, my feet have been usually pretty sad during the winter. These boots add just enough warmth and weather-resistance while keeping that Vans casual look that I dig. And finding an animal-friendly textile upper (Ballistic/Black) is a huge plus for me.
Man, I love these things. I've been riding them for the better part of a year now and they're still going strong. The laces seem to offer a really dialed-in fit. Nice and lightweight, too.
Love my Empires and I love having lace color options.
I actually bought this to mark certain buttons on a digital piano for when my band plays the occasional dark and dingy dive. To that effect, it works great. Easy to cut to shape, then just peel and stick!
I think I'll even slap a couple strips on my bike helmet for some extra visibility on the streets at night.
If you're looking for a simple, economical way to add some visibility to your running, hiking, cycling, etc gear, get this!
Always have this thing with me for camping/backpacking trips. I just keep it on my dashboard or attach it to my backpack as I'm hiking to keep it charged up. Casts a really nice ambient light. My niece loved the color-changing feature so much I had to buy her one, too!
