Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

Use these all the times mountain biking. The chamois makes riding a lot more comfortable. Even had a couple spills and they held up, no tears/rips. I've worn them with knee pads on a few descents and they fit over knee pads well.

Remove the chamois and they turn into great hiking shorts. All around great shorts for outdoor adventures.

Bought these on sale for under $30, great value. Still new to mountain biking, so I don't go fast enough to require full armor but having some protection on the elbows is nice to have just in case. Great for riding downhill. Wouldn't recommend for any serious climbs but it doesn't get in the way of pedaling during flat or mild climbing. They stay in place and fit true to size. Haven't had any serious crashes to tell you how much they protect but they feel pretty solid and form to the elbow well.

I would recommend these for anyone looking for a little extra protection at a great price.

After riding in skate shoes, I decided to go for the FiveTen Freeriders. Huge difference. Stiffer soles definitely makes it easier pedaling/standing. I read all about how sticky these things are on the pedals and there is no exaggeration. It caught me off guard the first time when I tried to adjust.

Definitely recommend these to anyone looking for a solid shoe for downhill/all round mountain biking.

Dirtpaw is great glove for the price. Comfortable, cheap, have had no problem with slippage on the handlebars or reaching for controls. The Dirtpaw fits small, which is good for me because I like a tight fit when it comes to gloves. At a low price, it's worth buying a few pairs to have.

Great fit, easy to change lenses, clear vision. I like the wide view out the lens. It looks like it sits on the tip of your nose, but the way the foam is cut, it sits on the bridge.

Swapping out the lenses are wicked easy. The Red Sensor mirror lens is great for low light conditions. Clear is still the best for fog. The blackout lens is perfect when the sun is out.

This (or future variations) are my go to goggle for life.

FKS 140 binding is great for all around freeriding. Don't do any huge drops off cliffs or what not, so the all metal and high DIN setting FKS 180 wasn't for me.

Never had a problem with the pivot releasing too soon. It has released when it needed to and my knees are thankful for that.

The bright orange color also helps finding a loose ski in the snow.
