These dry bags are awesome. They are lightweight yet (still feel pretty durable), and keep their contents dry. They come in many sizes so they are super versatile. I use the 13L as a food bag for 3-5 day backpacking trips and the 8L for my 30 degree down sleeping bag. These bags are a great way to waterproof your backpacking setup, and could be also be used as stuffsacks inside a larger drybag on river trips, although they don't seem like they are durable enough to be used on their own on river trips.

The appropriately named houdini surely is magic because it seem to disappear in your pack. Seriously, this thing packs down so small that I take it almost everywhere I go. It's great for hiking, mountain biking, climbing, or just rocking around town if it gets a little cold or breezy. Although it's not waterproof I quite often use this as my raincoat when it's hot out because it breathes so well and sheds light rain. This is definitely one of the most versatile piece of outdoor apparel I own and I'd highly recommend it to all!

Note: The fit on the jacket is more of a runner fit so it fits slightly smaller and slimmer than some of Patagonia's other jackets.

I love this shirt! It's super lightweight, drys quick, keeps you cool on hot days, and keeps you protected from the sun! The large hood is awesome for sun protection, and the button on it allows you to tighten it up if you want it to fit a little closer to your face. I purchased this shirt in a medium because I like a little baggier fit but I could definitely have gotten away with a small.

I just got these shorts and so far am loving them. They have a really simple design with the solid color and just two hand pockets, so they work great for biking but don’t look flashy when you’re rocking them around town. They also have a shorter inseam than many of the other bike shorts on the market which is great for shorter riders like myself. I’m 5’8 and these reach about the middle of my knee, covering the top of my knee pads when I’m wearing them. My only complaint about these shorts, and the reason I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars, is that the included liner is made from a pretty thick material and isn’t as breathable as I would like. A zipper pocket would be nice too, but for the price these shorts are hard to beat!

I’ve been wearing chaco sandals for years and finally decided to get some Chaco Flip Flops after my last pair of flip flops fell apart. So far I’m sold on these flops. They have a comfortable footbed that provides a little support, also the solid rubber sole feels very durable and provides pretty good traction for a flip flop. Bottom line, these are the best flip flop I’ve ever owned, so quit messing around with cheap flip flops that only last a year and get some Chaco flops.

Note: these sandals don’t come in half sizes and they run big so if you’re in between sizes you should size down for sure.

Get this shirt if you want to take your casual style to the trail. It looks and feels great but the cotton/polyester blend wicks sweat and breathes even better! Also, this shirt has a little stash pocket that is perfect for stashing your key or a little snack!

This hammock is really light and packs down small so you can take it anywhere. The double size is great even for one person because it gives you a little more room, which is nice especially if you are going to use it for camping. My only complaint is the straps that come with it don’t seem very durable and aren’t the easiest to adjust. If you get this hammock (which you should) I’d recommend getting the Eagles Nest Outfitters SlapStrap Suspension Straps because they are super easy to use and make setup a breeze.

These straps make setting up your hammock a breeze. They are very durable and have many attachment points allow you to easily set up your hammock in a variety of different places. Also these straps are compatible with any backpacking style hammock not just those made by ENO.

This insulated bottle keeps your water cold longer, as an insulated bottle should. It comes in two sizes (the standard 21oz or the big 25oz) so you can choose the size that works best for you. I mostly use mine for biking and it’s shape fits well in most bike cages. The Jet Valve is great because all you have to do is squeeze the bottle and a jet of water shoots out, but it doesn’t leak. In my opinion it’s definitely worth spending a little extra to get an insulated bottle like this one if you’re going to be using it in warm weather.

This pack is a great alternative to backpacks for shorter rides when all you need with you is the necessities. It’s the perfect size to fit a tube, CO2 canister, tire irons, a tool, and a snack. The fleece lined pocket is keeps your phone safe, and the water bottle holder on the side fits a small water bottle perfectly if you don’t have a cage on your bike. This pack feels great, and is so small you barely notice you’re wearing it!

I've only used this helmet a few times but so far I'm loving it. It's lightweight, has lots of vents to keep your head cool, and most importantly is highly protective. Another notable feature on this helmet is it's easy adjustment system that allows it to have a snug fit whether you're wearing a hat or hood under it or just rocking it over your hair. Bottom line, protecting your head is cool, and so is this helmet.

We've all had that experience when you're buddy takes a whip and you look down only to discover that your carabiner is no longer aligned across it's major access, but instead is pinned horizontally. Cross-loading is a major issue because, as you probably noticed, carabiners are about a third as strong across the minor access as they are across the minor access. The GridLock carabiner eliminates the chance of cross-loading by having a divider between your belay loop and your belay device. Aside from preventing cross-loading the shape of the carabiner almost locks into your harness, reducing wiggle room, which makes belaying feel more natural. This carabiner works great with grigis and ATCs alike, and I'm sure would work well with a PAS. Bottom line, get yourself one of these to increase your belaying confidence.

The TM-Two is a nice stiff boot that is great for everything from riding park, to groomers, to backcountry. The TM-Two XLT improves on the TM-Two by adding a Vibram sole for better grip. The Vibram sole makes a huge difference when hiking, especially on steep or exposed terrain when falling isn't really an option. If you're torn between these and the TM-Twos I'd recommend spending the extra money for the extra grip, it's well worth it!
