As an avid fisherman I can usually be found in the waters of Utah stalking big Brown’s, Cutthroat, Rainbows, or Brook Trout. If you do not see me there and the snow is fresh then I could be hiding in the hills looking for that perfect Powder shot.

I recently helped one of my awesome customers with sizing these skins. We based the skin off the indicated length of the ski which was 189 so we went with the Long 183 - 189cm for a nice tight fit but they found these to be a tad too short for their skies.

In asking them for some additional details on the skies they informed me of the following:
"Using these on a pair of K2 Hippy Stinx. They clearly say 189 on the side, but standing them up next to my old Atomic 191's they are exactly the same length. Perhaps the twin tips are measured a bit differently, or there is some difference between the manufacturers.

I took out a measuring tape. They are 193 cm from tip to the end of the tail measured along the curve of the ski. That explains why the skins didn't fit."

Word of advice would be to double check the actual length of the ski to best determine the size of skin needed.

merino wool has become my go to for all socks! these are great for the summer months because they breathe great so you don't get the soggy socks that need to be changed out as soon as you get to the car. when you slip these on you really notice the attention to details in the seams and over all fit. Not too snug and don't slip which I love because it is the worst when you get the bunching in the toes because the socks are slipping.

The only issue I have with these is that they don't have enough color options. I pretty much only wear these pants now. I have the convertibles, pants, and shorts all in several colors each. Convertibles are great all year round and are the only think I wear backpacking and hiking. Durable but light so they are great for camping and have held up well. I recommend these to anyone that is picky about their pants! Hard to go wrong with these.

These have been great to wear! soft and comfortable. They are loose fitting so I don't feel like I am getting bunched up or constricted where I need the room. They wash well with a rinse and dry fast which is great for getting some clean fresh undies for the hike out. Loved these so much I now have 5 pairs and was happy I could get some different designs so I don't mistake the dirty ones for the clean ones.

I find that these socks are very comfortable and have been great to wear in some warmer and cooler weather conditions. The size M fits well on my 9.5 size feet. Cushioning is nice under foot to help push for another mile and they breath well so I don't have sweaty feet.

These are not the thickest socks I have but they do a great job keeping my feet warm in the winter but not hot in the summer. They are great all year but I tend not to wear shoes much in the summer. I loved these socks and looking like I need to get another pair after my wife tried them on and won't give them back.

Love these socks! My feet are so much happier on a long hike when I wear these. They wash well with just a rinse and don't stink up like some of the others socks I have. Keeping my feel warm and dry on all the hikes so far! Thinking about getting few more pairs since they have been so good to my feet.

Love this hat! I was looking for one that was light weight and had the snaps on the side to keep the brim up. This sure fit the bill! The draw cord helps to provide a good sung fit for when the wind blows but that chin strap is essential when those high winds hit! Had this blow off my dome in high winds but the chin strap caught around my neck so I was not having to chase after it. It washes up nice as well with a good rinse in the sink and dries quick. It would be hard not to like this hat!

I picked this up early in the summer in the red and loved it so much that I had to buy it in more colors. I now have this in 5 colors! It is light weight, durable, and looks great! Love the snap buttons and even has one at the end of the collar which has been nice to flip up on hot days to keep the sun off my neck or if the bugs are bad and I want to over up a bit more.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I received this hat along with a few others and it seemed like a great hat but was not quite what I was looking for. Had a nice big brim to keep my face and neck shaded. Was light weight and looked good on. I was just looking for something a little different and really like these type of hats with the buttons on the side to fold the brim up so I stuck with
Marmot Simpson Sun Hat which was more what I was looking for out of this purchase. I would go for this one if I needed more of a rain hat though.

This is a great shirt! I work with Jimmy Elam and one day found we have the same great taste in clothing as we were both wearing the El Ray in the happy bolders/catalyst blue. At that moment I knew how good I must look in this shirt because he looked pretty sharp.

I purchased this because I like snap buttons and wanted to add some color to my wardrobe. When I received it I was pleasantly surprised at the material. Light and good stretch to it! Put it on and boy it fit great.
