Purchased for a friend, here's what he had to say about this helmet!
Best helmet I have ever owned. I’ve ridden Laser, Giro, and others, and this thing is by far the best. The style is impeccable, and distinctly “Euro.” From there, the venting is great. My favorite feature is the leather chin strap, which is super super comfortable on a long ride, particularly compared to normal nylon that ends up caked in salt/sweat and chaffing. One note: I bought the normal black (glossy), but after seeing some matte black Kasks on the road I would probably have gone with the matte if I could do it again.

These were gifted to a friend, here's what he had to say about them!
Great shoe, great fit, arguably better than the road version. There’s something almost sneaker-like about this MTB shoe, particularly since they added a Vibram sole that features soft, chunky rubber that makes walking around very easy. I have had the road version of the Empire, and as stated I would actually put Giro’s MTB offering a step above in that the outer material seems a bit more foot-friendly, also adding a capped toe helps. This is a great shoe, and the included modular footbed is a win.

Here's what my friend had to say about these shoes,
This is an interesting shoe from Sidi. It fits like a standard Sidi (subjective, but great for my foot), stiff carbon sole, and has wire enclosures. What differentiates this model is the “Vent” nature of the leather. In my opinion, this is a great shoe in climates with four seasons of riding where there is also a HOT summer (like Utah). The venting is noticeable in the heat, which means your feet swell less than other leather shoes. However, once the temperature drops, you can simple ride with a toe cap or shoe cover. The only thing I’ll point out that I don’t necessarily love is Sidi’s wire adjustment compared to the latest version of BOA. This isn’t a deal breaker per se, I just think the BOA is a bit more refined in its second version. Great shoe though, and again hard to beat the vented leather for four season riding.

Great bike stand, does everything you could ask. I was impressed with how heavy duty the tubes are, with plenty of heft without being unnecessarily heavy. It is also very easy to adjust, the release is great and very smooth, and the whole thing is collapsable — yet completely sturdy while holding your bike. I would recommend over other stands.

This is arguably the best pump money can buy. Although it fits in the middle of Silca’s offering (even at its price point), I would argue this is the best pump for the money — again, at an admittedly high price point. The pump is extremely efficient, filling a high PSI level quickly compared to other pumps in lower price points. I also like the braided nylon cover on the hose, the length of the hose, and the fact that it sits easily on a longer valve stem. The gauge is also very easy to read. Buying this pump made me want to get the travel friendly variant as well. Highly recommend.

I have lost these sunglasses twice to my dismay right after getting them but always finding them and realizing how obsessed I am with them. The frame fits my face so well without being too big but still getting the style I'm trying to go for. If you want a bigger frame but same style try the Remmy 52's. The color frame Kelp goes with everything. The Smog lense that comes with it works great in super sunny conditions. Highly recommend these.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

A great day to day pullover I got this as a gift for a friend. The fabric has a good weight to it along with a tiny amount of stretch. He usually just use this is a layer versus a shirt. The only downside he says is the collar is really wide. Which I have to agree. All in all though a solid piece.

Alright the moment I saw these boots hit the site I couldn't stop looking at them and eventually gave into the purchase. Expensive? Yes, I never thought I'd pay this much for a boot. Was it worth it? TOTALLY.

I have friends who stand by Red Wing boots like it's a religion. They encouraged me the whole time insisting that as long as I take good care of them that these boots will last a lifetime.

I ordered 2 sizes in the black leather. Red Wing boots are notorious for being tough to break in so I thought better to have options. A taller sock that's thinner such as merino wool would be great for this boot. The 7.5 fit great. The 7 fit with pain around the outside of my toes. I understood they needed to break in but it should be uncomfortable at first not as far as painful.

I kept the 7.5's and have been rocking them everyday with this fall weather. I chose this style because I can dress them down or dress them up depending on what I'm doing. They look great with a flannel wrapped around the waist and an oversized t underneath. Dressed up I've gotten higher skinny ankle jeans rolled them up and paired it with a cute sweater and long wool jacket.

The ONLY thing I can say about these is they do make your feet look bigger than normal. Not a bad thing though. They are boots after all!

Ladies you will love these!

A different style from the classic over the foot two strap but I like that. These can be dressed up a little more but still have the Birkenstock look and comfort that we all know and love. Pillows for your feet after breaking in and no room for a blister on this style. The oiled leather looks so natural and goes with almost anything.

I had been saving up for these pants and going back and forth for I kid you not like months! I finally took the plunge after going camping and wearing leggings of some sort and wishing I had these bad boys on.
The fit: 5' 3" 130 pounds I fit into the 36, (got regular length but should have gotten shorts) otherwise well. A little tight in the booty but that's my body shape. Love that they can be tightened to be boot cut style or let loose to fit around some high hiking boots.
The quality: indestructible fabric from what I can tell?? I put these things through the wringer. Also heavy weight so if it's chilly these are perfect... if it's hot I might reconsider. But great for camping i enjoy where lows are around 35.
All in all a great pant for your outdoor adventures and will definitely be back for more styles

As a huge fan of Oakley I knew I was in for "good things ahead" when I ordered these. As a girl they can feel very... overwhelming? on your face. For the purpose of these sunglasses though they were bought for biking. They look unbelievably professional on with a helmet to match so be prepared for stares of the good kind. The prizm road lense gives optimal contrast and the wrap around style of these means contrast for every eye movement. Overall just a super solid purchase!
