Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I recently bought this board for my brother. Brother is 6' and weighs 150 lbs. The 7 ply construction has worked really well for him. Offers enough stability, without be too stiff for his size. I get on it at 145lbs and its a bit stiff for my liking, but I tend to like a softer board. He hasn't longboarded in 5 or more years and it offers enough stability for him while he's been getting comfortable again. Now that he's getting back into it, its enough of a board to handle bigger hills comfortably without having to upgrade.

I have 15 Nixon's, and while I prefer the 51-30's because I like bigger faces, this is the quintessential watch that every one should have. Not to big to get in the way, but still big enough to get noticed. Clean classic design that dresses up or down, and really solid quality.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

My mom blew out her ACL this winter skiing and was really worried about getting out and hiking this summer. Got these for here birthday and she is ecstatic! Really solid design on the locking mechanisms so the poles don't slide. I've alwaus been really hesitant of collapsible poles because the few I've used have always slipped. I put most my weight on them and they still didn't budge. Mom's taken them out on a few short hikes while she's rehabbing her leg she really likes them so far.

I really like Dakine packs, because I have a Heli pro sitting next to me right now from 2005 that is still like brand new. I have a few different packs and duffels from Dakine and they've all really impressed me and this one is no different. If you need a good backpack for hauling photo gear this is the one. Plenty of room for you camera, a few lenses, batteries, etc. The interior gear holder is removable if you want to use it as a regular pack making it a lot more versatile than a typical camera bag.

I'm a Nixon fanboy, so I may be a bit biased. I have 15 Nixon's in total and 5 51-30's. If you're looking for a watch with a big face this is a must have. If you haven't had a watch with this size of face be warned they are big, and fairly heavy. I've worn mine at least 4-5 times a week for the last 7ish years and I don't even notice the weight. Anyone that doesn't wear a watch, or that wears PU or leather band puts it on and the weight and size are definitely noticeable. Great quality though and a super clean look that most big faced watch's don't have.

Can't go wrong with the classic Time Teller. Bit small for my liking, but my girlfriend loves it! One of the best features of this watch is the adjustable clasp. No need to go to a jewelry or watch store to get it fitted. Just pop open the back with a small screwdriver and adjust to wear you need it.

I've had a few different Goldcoast boards over the years. I haven't longboarded in a while and decided to get a drop deck this time instead of a pin tail like I normally ride. This board is a blast! Super fun for carving, but be warned it is soft. I'm 6'1" 145lbs and this board toes the line of being to soft. The softness does make it a bit hard to maintain stability when bombing longer hills. If you aren't super experienced on a board I would recommend something stiffer for a bit more stability. If you're looking for a light weight fun board for carving medium slope hills I'd definitely recommend it.

Just an all around really solid pant for getting out and moving. Love the stretch in them. They do run a little tight in the waist. I usually wear a 30 waist in all my pants but I probably should have gone with a 31 to add a little more room to move in the waist.

Got these for my brother in law and he loves them. He was telling me the other day up riding they are more comfortable than his vans that were down in the car. The only downside is the boa system to tighten them. You can never get boa's to tighten like you can a regular lace up boot.

I got a pair of these for my brother in law. He had a pair of the spy bravo goggles that he liked, but never really loved. Got him these and he was hooked. The frames on these are a bit bigger and offer better visibility for your peripheral vision.

My sister is taking a rock climbing class in school this semester and needed all the stuff to get her started. A friend recommended this kit and it's just what she needed. Most of the items are a little on the basic side, but are still quality. Perfect to get your feet wet.

I'm biased because I almost exclusively wear vans. I think I've had 15 pairs of the chucka lows over the last 10 years. I have a wide last and vans are one of the few shoe brands that fit my feet without having to go up a couple sizes. These do run a little narrower than other vans I've had, but they're already breaking in after less than a week. They are a little insulated, but not so insulated that they get too hot indoors. Work great in the snow and slush at keeping you feet dry.

Me and my dad can't stand wearing big bulky coats up skiing, but it's nice to have something to layer with under your shell. Got him the thermoball for Christmas and he's in love. The amount of stretch is really surprising and makes a huge difference, especially when being active like skiing or hiking. A little thinner than we originally expected, but it does an amazing job at keeping you warm for how thin and light it is.

Our old backpacking stove is probably 20 years old at this point. Still does the job, but to boil enough water to make dinner for 6 of us was a bit of a pain. Went backpacking with a buddy last summer that had one of these and I was blown away at how well it worked. Decided to grab one for myself and one for the family to replace theirs. Haven't used it other than testing it out at home, but based on everything I've read and trying out my buddies I'm stoked to have one.

Heading to Iceland in February and the Girlfriend needed a good pair of winter boots for hiking. She's done a few hikes around the Salt Lake valley in them and loves them so far. Temperate was between 15 to 30 degrees when she's gone out and they have been really warm for her. She tends to get cold especially in her feet and hands, so this was a bit impressive.
