This is an awesome beacon from Arva. Its display and features are very user-friendly, and though I have yet to really need it, the bacon practice and group checks are very accurate and battery life is great.

Love this harness! I'm new to climbing and thought it was very comfortable and easy to put on, tighten, and loosen. Black Diamond is one of the leaders in climbing equipment, and their commitment to quality shows in this details of this product. The stitching, fabric, and accessories are made of high-quality materials and I trust it with my life!

these boots are the best. They've got a classic and simple style that will have long lasting durability. You can dress them up and dress them down, and are suitable for every type of use from desert camping to your best friend's wedding and everything in between,. I now own two pairs and wear them every day. Be sure to purchase the Redwing care products as well to keep these kickers clean and shiny after some hard use.

This is an awesome spit package for the all-mountain charger. It's sold as a package, so it's great for both or experienced backcountry snowboarder looking to get into splitting or the well-traveled trailblazer looking to upgrade their setup. Grab a pair of K2's farout snowboard bindings and you'll have an epic setup log some miles in.

This pad is called the mondo king for a reason! Once inflated, its 4-inches of thickness makes it more comparable to a mattress than a pad, and it's definitely the comfiest sleeping pad I've ever slept on. The thickness gives you the option to fill it to your desired support level, which I really liked.

First use, the self-inflating function is a little slower, so be sure to give ample time to inflate. But no need to worry, because you can also use an approved pump or blow into the valves if you need to inflate quicker.

Once you've had a good nights rest on the tent gorund, in the back of your truck, or maybe even on a friend's floor, you can release the valves and it deflates easily by rolling up from the non-pump side.

Only downside is the storage size, which is pretty large once rolled up and wrapped in the carrying case cover. It is about as wide as a standard sleeping bag, but the length of two. So I wouldn't recommend for any sort of backpacking, but well worth it for the types of uses I mentioned above. 5 out of 5!

Love this jacket! With the Patagonia Nano products, I always mention how I feel I'm at "equilibrium temp" because you're never too cold or too hot when wearing them. This jacket is no different! It's very breathable and ventilated, but still warm and insulated, so it's the perfect option for any winter exercise that starts out cold but then has you heating up as you get pumping. I will never go on a winter split without it!

The [ak] hovert mitts are the best mitts around! So far the 3-in-1 versatility has been useful in all conditions - a 3L shell that’s rugged and taped - a down mitten-liner that’s incredibly warm and comfortable - and a glove liner perfect for the early morning skin track or late season spring days when no insulation is needed under the shell. Cherry on top? They're certified for life thanks to Burton’s [ak] lifetime warranty, and based on the construction, I'm sure they'll last it!

Seriously, best bang for the buck. For $260, this jacket doesn't just cover all of the bases, it hits it out of the park. The gore tex shell construction and fit is great in all types of weather. On sunny days, you can run it as a shell and the gore tex fabric is slush proof but breathable. On the colder snowy days, it's regular fit allows for an insulated layer underneath, and again the gore tex fabric will keep you dry all day.

The reason I really love this jacket it the integration of their Zip Tech technology when combined with Volcom brand pants. This tech allows the user to zip the powder skirt to the pants, eliminating the possibility of any snow getting in between the layers and getting you wet.

Because of this patented tech, you'll have a hard time separating me from volcom goretex outerwear products in the years to come.
