I. Love. This. Thing. Probably my favorite piece of gear I’ve ever bought for under $50. It is lightweight and thin enough to fit under a pretty tight helmet and is so breathable! Read: it will not turn into a block of ice next to your mouth and skin due to frozen breath condensation. In windy and colder conditions, it will require another layer depending on how hot or cold you run. Personally, I tend to run pretty warm, so as long as I’m moving around, I’ve found very few instances that this thing wasn’t enough for my face and neck in winter conditions.

Bright enough for any night time mission, and the lock feature will keep it from accidentally turning on and draining its batteries in your pack. It’s got a bunch of different settings that are fun to explore and learn how to use this thing to its full capacity. Definitely recommend.

Excellent for backcountry skiing or off-trail trekking in the summertime. They condense to a size that can easily be put on the side of a daypack and hardly stick out the top. I’ve never had the flicklock system fail at the adjustable points and the poles are a sturdy aluminum that holds up well. Personally, I would say to save your money and avoid poles with a shock absorption system that is more gimmicky than functional. Additionally the stacked foam grips on these are an improvement over previous BD pole systems of rubber (bulky and heavy) and grip tape (tears up your gloves). These poles do the job and do it well.

These gaiters tend to run a little small, probably due to the stretch fit. I would order a size up, especially if you will be trying to fit them over bulky boots. However, they have held up really well after two seasons of relatively rough use and I have no issues with their ability to keep snow, water, and scree out of my boots. I agree that the lace hook being on the small side. I have to pop it on and off my laces with some force, but I’ve never had a real issue with it.

These gloves are excellent touring gloves for a cold morning on the skin track or for the downhill on a spring day. I did notice that in wet spring-time snow, the leather palm immediately starts soaking up water. I would recommend using a leather conditioner/water-proofer in order to slow the onset of soaked gloves in wet conditions. The synthetic back material seems appropriately water resistant. Otherwise, the gloves fit exactly as expected, are super comfortable, and lightweight to wear.

I love my Crank Brothers multi-tool that I’ve had for four years now and never leave for a bike trip without it. The only gripe I have is it can be bulky to use in tight spaces and the bits are short (it’s a compact tool), so it can be a pain in harder to reach places as well. Overall, excellent range of coverage with its tools and convenient to carry.

I have used these with a pair of 22 Design Axle bindings that I’ve had for four seasons now. They work great (I use the talls) and are easy to flip up and down. Additionally, I’ve never struggled with them accidentally flipping down mid-climb as I’ve dealt with in some other bindings. Over the course of the four seasons, I have broken and replaced two bails. They both failed low, near the 90-degree bend on one side. Once they have broken, they will not stay locked down, which can cause issues while skiing down. The replacement process involves fully removing the top piece of the heel plate from the ski, so it is not a super easy for a field repair but is manageable. Bring a tool with a Phillips screwdriver head and an extra bail on all your big ski missions and let the good times roll.

Chamois can make or break a bike ride. For that reason I am constantly in search of a chamois to achieve pinnacle bum comfort while riding. Out of the four I've tried, this stands on top. Stay tuned for more reviews.

Two downsides to these socks:

1) the tube doesn't have quite enough stretch to it. I find that my toe nail gets caught and it's a little difficut to pull on & off.
2) People won't stop commenting on your socks. (Okay, not a downside in my opinion)
