These gloves are extremely breathable and lightweight. I've been riding in them for over a month now and they show no sign of wearing out. Most other gloves I've had that are this lightweight will break at the seems. Palm material has a lot of grip and is very thin giving you great feel of the bars. Highly recommend for anyone who likes minimalist gloves!

I'm typically a synthetic jersey kinda guy but figured I'd give Merino another chance. I tend to run hot and our Utah summers run even hotter which has kept me away from Merino in the past. This jersey is so soft and lightweight that it doesn't feel warmer than my standard synthetic jersey, and actually kicks butt on 80+ degree days. If you are looking for a comfortable Merino jersey that wont break the bank, the Badlands Jersey is for you!

Incredible fabric and fit make these my new favorite bike shorts. I was skeptical at first because the length was a bit longer, but after riding in them I didn't really notice it. If you wear knee pads, the length is great. All the features and benefits you would ever want in a bike short make this worth the money!

These were the second pair of Zamberlan boots I've purchased. I've since purchased a third pair because of how comfortable they are. The Tofane is designed for the harshest environments and longest days. Wearing these all last winter they never let me down and still look like new. The rubber toe cap is nice because it saves the leather from scuffs and salt damage. Really looking forward to spending days in the back country hiking in these this summer!

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!

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

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.
