Disappointing. Loved my flex fit goat hat until I lost it. This one is not the same. Fits weird.
Real nice jacket. Nice long athletic fit. No bulk, but intermediate to heavy warmth. I'm 6'3" and the large fits great in torso and arms. Only one zipper pocket on the chest. Slight draw-back.
Good bag. Used it everyday for two years. The only hangup is that the waterproofed zipper was pretty tight at the beginning, making getting in and out a little difficult. it eventually loosened up, but then the rubber/plastic coating started to deteriorate and break off. Zipper worked, but it looked ugly.
Great looking helmet. Fit is awesome. Far superior to the Giro G-9 I've been wearing for years. Real lightweight, you hardly know it's there. Peripheral is as good as it gets when paired with the POC Cornea goggle. The only small drawback is that the vents cannot be closed/opened while helmet is on. You have to take the helmet of and move two small velcro patches. Small drawback.
Sizing is very similar to Giro. I wear a medium in both.
Just picked up a pair of the Cornea this season. Functionality is an A plus. Even on a high humidity early season day on Mount Hood, i experienced very little fogging while stationary and zero as soon as I got some airflow going. Styling is great too. Not too big, so you don't look like a Swedish bug. Uniqueness is also pretty cool. Set yourself apart from the hordes Smith, Anon, and Spy wearers.
Stop buying TNF Denali jackets unless you're in high school or never plan to where it outdoors. There are so many better options out there in fleece for this prce range. Even other TNF models. Are you going to wear your Bugaboo when you hit the mountain? Can't believe this was reccomended to me in the "Customers who bought this item also bought:" section.
Stylin and expensive piece of man-jewlery, but I rarely where it because it is so damn heavy. Also, let's just say, I'm past my prime for hanging out at the mall. Also I never know what time it is, because the thing is hard to read. Nice watch. If anyone wants one, mine will be on eBay.
Dynastar kept almost the exact same construction as the previous version. I guess they went with the "ain't broke, don't fix it" theory, but innovation is the name of the game in skiing. They are burly, stiff, fast and stable. Good for charging the whole mountain. Would have liked to see them push the envelope and add a rocker profile or slight twin tip. Maybe even change up the tired old graphic theme. C'mon, keep up Dynastar!
Mandatory base layer as far as I'm concerned. Use one of these just about every day in the mountains. It's my security blanket. There are heavier base layers, bu I go with the multi layer approach. Works great!
Took this bag to Cham and back last year. Bag is a bit heavy with two pairs of skis, poles, boots, a couple harnesses, and some other random stuff. It is easy to get around with though. Litterally on planes, trains and automobiles on this trip. Handles everywhere. Great wheels. Good storage pockets. Two pair is all you want to put in here. 191 size fit my 190 Gotamas no problem.
Usually love bc.com stuff. I'm a big supporter of the brand, and I know they are aware of the athletes needs when they design products. That said, they missed the mark a little with the fit of this shirt. The neck material is not cut correctly and bunched up annoyingly. The arm pits are a little snug, but it fits fine in the rest of the shirt. I have two of them, so i'm pretty sure it's the cut pattern, and not a one-off irregular.
Long live the Monkey Man! Still love this jacket. Nice all purpose fleece that makes you look like a monkey, who wouldn't? Truthfully though, it is not very practical for technical use. It's too bulky to layer, and the wind cuts right through it as an outer layer. I still wear mine though, because looking like a monkey is cool.
Tried and true. Absolute essential for every trip. Great base layer for your shell on cold days. Can be worn as an outer layer on moderate days or during hikes due to the windstopper. Nice cut fits pretty snug and may be a bit short for taller guys. Styling is a little dated (color block, MHW logo), but c'mon... it's a fleece vest. You're shouldn't be wearing it to the club.
This shell is alright. I have it and the MHW alchemy and I definitly wear the Alchemy 3-4 times more often. The cut is a little more generous, or casual, in the synchro. The Alchemy could almost be considered 'slim-fit'. Biggest advantage the alchemy has is Gore windstopper. It is warmer, but a little less breathable.
You will look like the Michelin man when you wear this. I've had mine four 4 years and wear it on a consisteent basis. No quality problems and I've never been cold in it. Packs down real small into a stuff sac (included) for keeping in your pack too. My shell does have one small rip in it from an aggressive puppy, but it has not spread due to the rip-stop. Great Jacket!
Travel with this bag all the time. After a year, it has handled everything I've thrown at it. No issues with quality or durability. The storage pockets ar plentiful and functional. Weight is fairly lean, so you can get a lot in it and not break the airline heavy baggage fee threshold. Agree with the other reviewer, compression straps are useless and annoying. Otherwise it's great!
Frame broke where it attaches to the wheel bracket. It took a year and about twenty plane trips, but still disappointing. Also, does not hold as much as I thought it would for the size due to its convex bottom. Fits in very few overheads
They look good. Cut is nice trough the knee and thigh. The waterproofing does wear out after about about a year to year and a half. Well thought out pockets and waist adjustments. I paid $99 and feel like it is a pretty good value, but I wear other pants when the weather gets nasty. Spend more if you want more.
Have had the F1 for 5 years. Easy to operate and dependable sum this beacon up the best, and isn't that all you need? Digital displays are cool, but I see no need for anything beyond the F1 at this point.
