Cool weather gear

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small

The Perfetto RoS Convertible Jacket is a solid choice for anyone looking for a layer for when it is in the 40's and may creep into the 50's. I wear a medium jersey in most brands and went for a medium in this. It fits but is race tight. For layering, I would order a size up.

The material is one in which it has some resistance to it, hence ROS, meaning rain or shine. This is a valuable component as it serves a dual purpose, blocking the wind and keeping you warm. I'm looking forward to using this jersey in multiple situations. One, for days where its in the 40's with a base layer underneath. Another, when its in the low 50's, or I know it will warm up and I will unzip the sleeves and use the jersey paired with a pair of arm warmers. This ability to have this jacket work in temperatures ranging from 40-55 is its greatest asset.

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

I took this bike out for a big day here in the Wasatch Mountains of Salt Lake City, Utah. Kitted out, this bike matched not only my lycra attire but my inner ethos focused on speed, fitness, and fun. On the uphill, this bike pedaled better than any bike I have ridden. While a hardtail may be fast, the suspension on this bike makes it compliant on the uphill tracking over roots, bumps and rocks to provide a faster xc bike. At the top, I was curious how this bike would shred. Loads of flannel wearing, goggle donning enduro riders were shuttling the ride I had just ridden up and I pointed the bike down and just shot it. Like skiing powder in the winter, I felt like I was surfing through turns, in and out of pristine mountain single track. Launching of roots and rocks, the bike allowed finesse that a bigger traveled bike would have dampened. In short, I loved the way it rode uphill, but couldn't believe the way it was going down. For the riding I like to do, which is a combo of being fast and fun, this is the bike for me.

I test rode this bike for a period of three days. The bike really shines when you point it uphill but it also crushed in some crit like simulations. The di2 and all black bike was top of the line in my book. While I am a laggard when it comes to disc brakes on road bikes, I was surprised at how much I liked them. This is the trend for road bikes these days so I am on board now, especially after test riding them on the R5. Overall, this is a fast bike meant for a rider who appreciates a rocket ship of a bike.

I bought this as a gift for my partner and she can't stop wearing this! She loves the style which pairs well with a Sumer hat and sandals. She packed this jumper for a Caribbean vacation and loved the versatility of it for the beach and for going out to dinner. It is soft and comfy. The pockets are great, and the style is very cute and flattering.

I bought this as a gift for my partner. These are incredibly comfortable and supportive shoes. She walks miles in them and they are still so comfortable. She does not get blisters from these shoes, though they do require a bit of breaking in. The style is cute and very versatile and the straps are adjustable. These shoes are very durable and last a long time. Totally worth the price.

These were a gift for my girlfriend. She says these are comfy and cute shorts for travel, lounging, or hiking. These have a great zip pocket in the back and a liner short underneath. They are super soft and the perfect length. They run large to size.

My girlfriend received this as a gift and think this sports bra is fantastic! It is easy to take on and off, provides moderate support, and is incredibly comfortable. She likes the style and the color is great. She will probably buy this in other colors because she likes it so much!

This is a fantastic all around backpack for hikes. Great pockets, sturdy zippers, fits well for a woman's build. The backpack is designed and engineered with outdoor users in mind. If you haven't made the switch to a hiking backpack for your excursions, give this one a go.

I bought this as a gift for my sister for her trip out West. This is a great shoe for hikes where a large amount of ankle support isn't needed but you still want a sturdy shoe with traction. The waterproof nature of it keeps feet dry for small stream crossings and the traction on the sole helps jumping from rock to rock with confidence.

I love these trigger point balls. I use them for muscle releases of hard to reach knots in my quads/hip flexors and glute med. As a endurance athlete overuse injuries are just around the corner unless I take care of my body. That starts with proper biomechanics and foam rolling in addition to trigger point release keep me going without screwing up my stride. Just to be transparent, my dog ate part of the ball and now I need another!

I have really sweaty feet and rainbow sandals and birkenstocks just don't cut it. They get gross and slimy and the leather absorbs the moisture. These Chaco Play Pro Web Flip Flop's fix that. The rubber keeps them odor free, easy to clean, and they don't absorb sweat. These look good and are ready for adventure.

I threw these pedals on my urban bike I commute on and ride to the bar. They are great so far and the color choices spice up my life. They also don't have metal pins but are still grippy so my feet don't slip and I don't bang up my shins.

These boots have completely changed my backcountry skiing experience. With how light they are and with they're wide range of motion, the uphill experience is so much more casual and comfortable. They're like wearing a pair of socks.

For sizing, going small really worked well for me. I went a full size smaller than than my previous Scarpa Freedoms and it's worked out great.

On the downhill the boots actually stiffen quite well. Certainly not a dedicated downhill boot and feel a little short against the anterior shin but definitely still ski-able. I've toyed around with the insert that goes in the rear of the boot and think this will eventually make the skiing more 'boot-forward' but as of yet they've only proven to constrict my foot too much. Looking forward to messing with the BOA and buckle settings more to find the perfect fit for downhill skiing.

Overall, a great, super-lightweight boot that excels on the uphill and certainly passable on the downhill. So stoked.
