I was really just looking for a casual shoe I could wear to the office when I stumbled across these guys. Its a snug fit, but comfortable if I'm not in them all day. Can't say I wear them for the intended use as the only thing I'm really approaching is the fridge for my next cerveza mas fina.

Fit: Runs small

Size Purchased: Large

I'm a 33-34, but sized up to a large which was a good choice. Shorts are light and durable. Only downside may be that the rubber zipper knobs disappear quite quickly. Will buy another pair if the funds become available.

I bought the L/XL for my over-sized noggin (59 cm) and I can barely put my head in the thing. I don't know how a human with a larger brain container could wear it at this size.

That said, I'm very happy my head fits and although I haven't been able to take it out skiing yet, I'm pretty sure it will work out great. Also looking forward to possibly using this guy as an MTB helmet for the shoulder seasons.

Given the goggle compatibility and the rear protection, would this helmet be a candidate for skiing or snow boarding? Yeah, I see the million vents, but curious to see if anyone has had the same thought. I usually wear a balaclava, special ops style, anyhow.

Bought this tent based on other reviews, so now it's my turn to return the favor. Awesome tent, easy to put up and take down. It's super roomy for 1 person and gear and would probably hold 2 full sized humans if need be. I took this gear out car camping with my 3 year old son (first time) and he loved it so much he didn't want to leave- kicking and screaming all the way home screaming, turn the car around, I want to go back.

Needless to say, we set it up in the family room when we got home.

Ended up getting some additional stakes and that was a good idea.

Gear loft is a bonus, as is the footprint.

Totally worth the money, if you're thinking about it, buy it!

This is a pretty basic case. Appears to be durable and holds my phone charging cables, SDXC cards, blah blah blah for travel in my Dakine Baker back pack. Good deal for the price. I have 2.

I bought this pack as a daily commuter to store my IT crap and to replace an old Marmot Scree - it's a total score. Super light weight, but well built. Plenty of room in the large compartments for enough stuff you would take out for 1 day. The goggle pocket that opens in the back is kind of money too. I haven't carried my skis or my wife's board yet, but it appears to be totally capable. The only improvements I'd make would be to make the reservoir pouch about a half inch bigger to double as a 13" mac book pro laptop sleeve. Right now I can squeeze in my MBP but it's not easy. Anyway, it could maybe use some small internal zippered pockets to store small loose items too. I ended up getting a Dakine accessory case for like $6 here on BC but I'm thinking it could be easily accommodated on next year's model.

Wolftooth Giant Cog Modification

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

I purchased this cassette to support a Wolftooth Giant Cog (40t) conversion of my 1 x 10 drive train - works incredibly well all put together. Check out the Wolftooth web site for more information.


I opted for the Wolftooth 16t cog to replace the cassette 15 & 17 cogs and I think that was the right move.

So far so good (1 ride), but will check back later in the season.

Don't forget to buy a new chain if you're going to convert to the GC.

I bought this rack after a serious amount of research and I'm not totally disappointed. The thing is easy to assemble and operate, but not perfect. On the product I received, the bottom swing arm ratchet doesn't catch at the low end so I've been forced to push my 26" wheel forward to the 29" setting. This allows the bottom arm to move higher and catch, giving the adjustable screw a chance to grip the tire. Not sure what I would do if I rode a 29er other than return it as I don't think I can MacGyver a fix given the plastic construction.

This problem is most likely only an issue with the product I received, and not a design defect. For me, my next rack will be made by 1Up USA.
