Really love this running vest. Not a ton of unnecessary gadgets or cords. The two soft flasks fit perfectly into the front pockets, and there is a great little zipper pocket to put your keys and wallet in. The fabric is super breathable too, so you wont be overheating from wearing this on a warm day.

Im super stoked about this jacket! It is great for keeping you warm sitting around the campfire and as a mid layer for winter layering. I love the hood and zipper that zips up just under my nose for those super bitter cold days.

Im a big fan of the BD Momentum climbing shoe, so I was excited to demo these shoes to see how they worked. For the two weeks I climbed with these, I wasnt super impressed. The sizing is definitely weird, I highly recommend trying them on before ordering. I would recommend the Black Diamond Shadow Climbing Shoe over this shoe.

Really loved this chair. It was so nice not to sit in the typical camping chair with the straight up and down back rest. The legs are strong enough to lean back on and it's great for leaning back and star gazing. Only problem is how low to the ground it is. It makes it hard to get out of and sit down.

Im a huge fan of the black holes. Ive had the 90L for a couple years and had to snag a 60L for smaller trips. The 60L is great for 1-2 day trips. I find I can fit a surprising amount of stuff in these. And I love their water resistant outer material. Keep water, dirt, and sand out really well.

The shell for everything.

The BETA AR really is the shell for every activity. This winter I took it out for countless ski tours in the Wasatch. It kept both snow and wind off me in the harshest winter conditions. I also utilized it on my fly fishing trip this spring in Montana. It rained on us every day, and my Beta AR never let in a single drop of precipitation. It does have a pretty price tag on it, but it is 100% worth that amount.

Im so stoked on these shoes. For years, Ive spent my spring mountain adventures with wet, cold feet, but never again! I was in Big Sky, MT this weekend hiking Ousel Falls while it was totally down pouring. I even slipped into the river at one point, and with the high topped design, my feet were still totally dry. I definitely recommend these Altras for anyone running/hiking in any wet terrain, you will not be disappointed.

Im super stoked on these sandals. They really are as comfy as everyone said. The cork footbed isnt very breathable, so I feel my feet sweating a bit when it's hot out, The sizing is also super wack. I originally ordered 43s because I'm usually a 10.5 in other shoes, and they were WAY too big for me. I ended up having to get size 41s, but then they fit perfectly.

This shoe was okay. I demo'd these shoes for the weekend while I was in Joe's Valley bouldering, and I was happy I still bought my own climbing shoes, because I took these off after an hour of use and went back to my Black Diamond climbing shoes. The heal was sharp and hurt my achilles . I also felt like there was too much padding in the toe, to the point that I couldn't really feel the rock and all its grooves.

Really great pant for just a simple backcountry ski pant. Vents on the side allow for heat dumping and keeping yourself the perfect temp on the hike up. The waterproofing also works super well. I toured in a super wet spring storm last week and these totally kept me dry, no leakage at all. I also noticed the difficulty of how the cuffs fit over my boots, but that was minor and my only complaint.

Overall really happy with this crash pad. Took it down to Joe's Valley for my first use, and it worked out great. The only complaint I have is the zipper that closes the pad up when you're done with it. It's really hard to zip up because dirt gets in the zipper and makes it a pain. But besides that, it's a good size for using on its own, and it's a nice soft landing from a far fall.

Just got back from my surf trip in Mexico, and this duffel was fantastic. I used it as my wet suit and bootie bag so that I would keep the rest of my stuff dry. The material of this bag was proof and did the job. I loved how I could alter the size with the side straps as well as the backpack straps for easy transportation.

Demoed this jacket for a week and really enjoyed how well it kept me dry and at the perfect temp. I took it out on a ski tour here in the Wasatch and it was absolutely dumping snow that day. The pit zips helped me dump out my heat as I hiked up the mountain and the GoreTex layer kept me totally dry. Once we got to the peak, the wind was howling! And this jacket kept every ounce of wind out.

Im usually riding the IO/X goggles and absolutely love those, but these Squad XLs performed just as Im used to with the IO/X. I prefer the larger goggles to keep my field of vision nice and wide, and these definitely did a great job and showing me the whole mountain. I love how they dont fog up even while Im sweating my face off on a toasty spring day.
