Last season I used the RaceFace tailgate pad on my Tacoma and loved it. This year I bought a larger truck and needed a new pad so I decided to try out this one from Dakine. So far this pad has been great and I haven't noticed much of a difference from the RaceFace pad. I was a little skeptical that it would hold my bike in place as well, but so far its been doing the job. If you are looking to save some money, I would highly consider buying Dakine!

Late last Fall while riding in Moab, I was caught in the worst rain storm of my life. This was a rain storm that compared to those I've seen in Central America and Southeast Asia. If it weren't for the Mountain Hardwear Ghost Lite Stretch Hooded Jacket stuffed into my fanny pack, I would have had a terrible time! The jacket didn't keep me dry, but it kept me warm and it kept me moving to get back to camp. I find myself wearing this jacket anytime I hit the trail on a cool morning or have it ready if I plan on riding late into the evening. Just enough stretch to make it unnoticeable, while feeling durable. It may not keep the heaviest rains out, but it keeps a light moisture and cool breezes at bay!

High quality materials and good design make for a nice ride in these shorts. Easy access pockets and waist adjustment are nice when wearing gloves. Only ridden a handful of times in them but I have a feeling they will last for several seasons!
Length is perfect when in the saddle and they don't feel like baggie DH shorts when having post ride sodas!

My mom was asking about getting into cross country skiing with her girlfriends, so I purchased these Alpina skis for her Christmas present. She is very new to the sport and has been have a great time learning on these skis. These are nicer than the average beginner ski and no complaints so far!

New favorite hoodie for all occasions. Great slim fit, with a little extra length and super soft. I wear it on warmer ski days and keep it on when i get home and hit the couch.

This is a very warm and comfortable jacket. High quality, heavy weight and great fit make this my new go to jacket for most occasions. I wasn't into the fur so I zipped it off, and the hood is great when the wind picks up. Highly recommend this jacket for anyone looking for a warm, comfortable, stylish winter jacket!

I bought this as a gift for my cousin, as she is new to Utah and needed a good winter jacket. The fit was perfect, she loved the print, and said its been keeping her warm. As with most North Face product, the quality seems great and I imagine she will enjoy this jacket for years to come!

This jacket is my new favorite in the closet. Lately its the only thing I wear when heading to the office, grocery store or pub. Very comfortable for chilly fall mornings, and stylish for going out in the evening. The material on the sleeves is very unique and looks really sharp. I typically wear a medium in other brands such as Patagonia, Arc'teryx and TNF, however, this jacket fits a bit on the snug side. Very athletic and trim, so I sized up to a large.

I've been wearing this hoodie around a lot this fall and its been awesome. It's a little on the big side for me, but should be perfect for skiing on those warmer days. Face fabric is incredible, very soft yet durable and water repellent. Kangaroo pocket has an inner phone pocket with audio port that makes listening to music while walking the dog easy. If your looking for a tech hoodie with style, this is it!
