If your looking for a pair of riding baggies that you hardly notice when pedaling, the Patagonia Dirt Roamer is a solid option. Welded seems, stretch fabric, one side pocket make these the most comfortable pair of baggies in my collection. Pair with the Endless Ride Liner bib chamois and you have the most comfortable baggie/chamois combo on the market. If you like a heavier weight, longer cut, pockets galore type baggie, these won't be for you! But if you like the idea of wearing boardshorts that stretch and fit nothing more than an Iphone, these are the ticket!

Very lightweight and breathable bib chamois that stays in place and works great. I've never been a huge fan of bibs while mountain biking, mainly because most of them were either too tight or uncomfortable to layer with baggies. These bib shorts are snug enough to stay in place but not uncomfortable when hanging out off the bike. Highly recommend trying these as they've quickly become my favorite chamois in the drawer!

I prefer a minimalist type glove with zero padding, good grip and ventilation. Out of all of the gloves I've worn through the years, this is by far my favorite. Extremely comfortable and tacky palm, paired with a lightweigh mesh back make this a great warm weather option. I've been wearing these for over 6 months, hand washing them as needed and they've held up nicely.

I wore this shirt during a spin class that usually causes me to drown in my own sweat. I still poured sweat like usual, however, this shirt was extrememly comfortable while doing so. The back of the shirt is very breathable and wicks the moisture off of your skin very well. I'd usually never consider wearing merino to an indoor workout class, however, the weight and feel of this shirt are perfect for warmer enviroments. Highly recommend for your next active merino shirt!

I've been searching for the perfect one piece base layer for quite some time and I think I've finally found it. The Smartwool Merino 250 is just the right weight for those cold, crisp, Jan-Feb snow days. I pair this with my one piece HH ULLR suit for the ultimate in cold weather comfort.

As the other review states the drop seat is a bit different than what I was expecting. The zipper creates a belt like feeling that keeps the crotch in the correct spot, which I actually really like. Other one piece base layers I've worn tend to get saggy over time, causing the crotch to sit lower than wanted. Highly recommend this product like i do with all my Smartwool gear!

After using the first generation of BC link for the past two seasons, this is a pleasant upgrade. The range of this radio is much better than the first one and stays on the same channel much better. I use this for snowmobiling and it works great for communicating with my party. Highly recommend for any backcountry user, regardless of how you choose to travel through it.

I bought these as a Christmas gift for my girlfriend. She had never worn bibs before and was always jealous of how comfortable mine looked, rightfully so. Out of all the different women's bib pants available, the Flylow Foxy Bib Pants were given the best review by my friends. So far she has worn them a couple of days while skiing in Montana and absolutely loves them. The fit is better than any of her previous pants and she is happy to finally have her own bibs!

I bought these gloves to replace an old pair of BD Kingpin gloves that I had finally worn out after six or seven seasons of hard use. Unlike the Kingpin gloves I had, these gloves started out broken in and comfortable right away. The leather is much softer, thus giving you more dexterity than most other leather gloves.

Not too warm, not too chilly, these gloves are perfect for your average Utah winter weather. Great for touring/resort skiing and even better on a snowmobile. Hard to beat the Backcountry x BD Hot Lap gloves for the money! Highly recommend.

I only tend to wear these knee pads when I'm shuttling or riding chair lifts. Out of the several pair of knee pads I have, the Dakine Hellion are my go to for any sort of DH riding that I get into. They are heavier weight, yet comfortable to keep on all day. I wouldn't recommend these for all day pedaling. For the money they are hard to beat for the protection they offer.

I bought this as a birthday gift for my father. My dad is a contractor who tends to ruin shirts easily and frequently. First thing he noticed about this shirt was its craftsmanship. Filson is known for its well made products and this shirt is no exception. Thick, durable, yet soft construction, paired with a timeless flannel pattern, makes this my dads favorite new shirt for cold Montana days.
If you're new to Filson, this is a great first purchase to get acquainted with the brand. Everything I've ever owned from this brand is designed to last a lifetime.

I bought a Traeger Scout for car camping this summer, and it was an instant hit. This brings everything you love about your Traeger grill to the great outdoors. I've cooked everything from jalapeno poppers and enchiladas to Tomahawk steaks. If you can cook it in an oven, you can cook it in a Scout. All you need is a power inverter and an extension cord and you can hook it right to your car battery. Highly recommend this as the best addition to your car camp or tailgate setup.

These pants work great when the temp drops and you still want to get out and ride. Seems odd to mountain bike in pants, but you really don't notice in the Fat Jack Pant, which are just as comfy as your favorite short. Good amount of stretch and fit is spot on. Highly recommend for the shoulder season.
