This is such a great update to Billabong's Boundary anorak and 1/4 zip offering. Been wanting that same DWR coated sweater fleece in a full zip option and this is it. Super cool camo nylon ripstop on the top yoke as well to tie back to the buttery soft sweat fleece. Fits a touch big but really nothing that I would say worth sizing any differently than TTS

Seriously the softest short I have quite possibly ever felt. Been loving the elastic waist boardies and this is just a natural evolution of the more tech stretch offering Billabong has. Insanely soft hand to these and honestly read as a hybrid short and not just a true board short. This is a MUST HAVE for any and all outdoor and water sports enthusiasts. Literally don't want to take these off

Just got a pair of these and cannot wait for some nicer weather to bust these out. Such a great nostalgic Billabong short from the 90's. Super soft wide wale cord, definitely pulled these out of the archives!!

Recently got this jacket and absolutely love it. Great lightweight windbreaker, great for hiking and bringing along to outdoor concerts and events. Love the jacquard stripe across the body, super fun and stylish. Fits pretty true to size, I prefer things a touch big on me so a size large was perfect.

Just got this jacket for myself this season and absolutely love it.. The stretch fabric on this is amazing!! Super soft, light, quiet and comfortable but truly as technically sound as any other outerwear piece I own. I kitted this up with the Northwest Bib pant and it looks and feels great. Nice light jacket that I can layer underneath for any condition and stay completely comfortable and dry.

I ordered a Large and it fits great. It's a liittle baggy and I probably could have fit in a Medium but I don't mind the extra room.

Thanks Backcountry and Billabong!!

Just got a pair of these for myself this season and absolutely love them. I had been hesitant to try wearing a bib again but so far this season I couldn't be happier with the switch from a regular pant. The stretch fabric on these is amazing!! Super soft, light, quiet and comfortable but truly as technically sound as any other outerwear piece I own. I have found that I can wear 1 less layer with the bib as it really keeps all the snow and wind off of my body. The value of these for the price is insane!!

I ordered a Large and they fit great. They are a little baggy and I probably could have fit in a Medium but I don't mind the extra room.

Thanks Backcountry and Billabong!!

Just got the new Barlow Military jacket and am so stoked on it!! Really great vintage military look with the durable cotton canvas on the outside but the real treat is the super buttery soft sherpa liner throughout the entire body of the piece. Can't wait for it to cool down a little so I can start wearing this!!

Easily one of the most comfortable pieces in my closet. Super high pile polar fleece with a light water resistant coating on the outside. Great for just lounging around the house on a lazy weekend in the winter or wearing out on a cold wet day!! I purchased a large because I like to layer a hoody underneath it sometimes but probably could have fit in a medium for a little trimmer fit as well.

Absolutely one of my favorite hoodies. This piece is an insanely buttery soft fleece with a light water resistant coating on the outside of it, making it great for all types of weather. I own the light grey color but love that oatmeal/navy combo and the black as well!!

Just got a pair of these new Billabong Surf Trek Wick shorts and they are absolutely INSANE!! Just as light and stretch as any of the crossfire series of shorts, however they are backed with what is essentially the Dri-Fit moisture wicking backing. It is insanely soft on the inside of the short and really does wick the moisture away from the body keeping you super cool and dry. Definitely will be snagging these in a few more colors!! Great job Billabong!!

Definitely have had my fair share of Billabong New Order's over the last few years and really can't find a short that I like the fit of more. 19" length so not super short, really just at the top of my knee. Really like how the leg opening is really slightly tapered so it just isn't super baggy at the bottom of the leg opening. Really nice amount of stretch in these for a cotton canvas short as well.

Got a few pairs of these last summer and literally wore them everyday. Fabric is an amazing over-dye super stretch quick dry that is insanely comfortable. Absolutely love the elastic fit waistband and don't know if I can wear a regular pair of shorts again after going elastic!! Super stoked on these

Just got both this Barnacle + and the classic Barnacle and am so stoked. Put it to the test as soon as I pulled it out of the box and threw it in to my full bathtub, sat it in direct blast of the shower, stuck it to just about everything in sight and haven't had one issue yet. As a musician myself, I was skeptical on what the quality of sound would be but was pleasantly surprised when I played a mix of all genres of music and they all sounded great, it even gets pretty loud!! Love the size too. Perfect to just drop in my backpack and bring with me wherever I go. Definitely will be testing this out on the golf course once this snow melts and goes without saying this will be suction cupped to an SUP all summer long!!

These are some of my favorite boardshorts from Billabong in the last few seasons. They do come in some fun printed options as well but this is a great way to truly see the tech that goes into these. They are calling this their Airlite Technology and it truly works and is amazing. They use a tighter weave 4-way stretch jacquard on the top section around the waist with the least amount of stretch so it doesn't ever bag out around your waist. The center segment will incorporate significantly more stretch as that is where the most movement is when using in or out of the water. The bottom segment is a micro perferated stretch that was created by weaving a water soluble thread into the fabric, and letting it dissolve during the pre-wash, creating a mini natural perforation for quick dry and water repel. Really amazing boardie that would likely be $100+ from competitors!!

Since Billabong started their Lo-Tides collection, I have been hooked. Love the fact that they realized us guys have stuff to carry to and started incorporating pockets into their boardies. I am not super tall so the lo-tides fit great and come to just above my knee...not too short but definitely not all that extra fabric below the knee for a super trendy look. Absolutely love both of these colorways, though I am drawn toward the Dr. Seuss looking trees on the navy colorway. Amazing soft hand, 4 way stretch and really nice washed out colors for that retro look.

Just got this shirt in the Grey colorway and absolutely love it. All of the Billabong wovens now include a little bit of stretch in them so the comfort is thru the roof. Really love how this appears to be a classic chambray shirt but instead gets more of a ringspun heathered look. Really great shirt to dress up or just wear unbuttoned as an everyday casual. Definitely a little bit of a trimmer fit which is great, not boxy and wide at all. I got a large which fits pretty much true to size, definitely could have gotten a medium for a little slimmer fit look and it still would have fit great.
