Omar Muhyar's Bio

As a lover of all four seasons, you'll find me enjoying smooth and twisty singletrack when the sun is shining. During the winter, my time is spent spinning countless laps at Brighton, hopefully pillaging pow stashes in the trees.

Probably the best wireless headphones you can snag for under $100. They're solidly built, adjust to a wide range of head shapes, and feel super comfortable for extended listening periods. The drivers are super loud, but more importantly sound pretty balanced for a headphone of this price.

Not quite as punchy in the lows as some other offerings by Skullcandy (i.e. Crushers), but they're on-ear style, so this is to be expected. Wireless pairing is a snap, on-ear buttons make flipping through tracks intuitive, and there's even the ability to hook them up with a wire when the battery eventually dies.

Overall, I'm super impressed with the direction Skullcandy is moving these days, especially seeing the brand's earliest offerings (like back in 2007), which were all style and no substance or quality sound.

My girlfriend loves this fleece zip-up, due to its textured aesthetic and cozy-soft lining material. It's a great layering piece for transitional seasons and wintertime wear. The hemline and cuffs use an elastic binding for a snug fit without it requiring a cinch cord.

* Purchased as a gift for my girlfriend who's approximately 5'2" and 120lbs. It fits perfectly without it being overly baggy or too tight.

Love the look and feel of this shirt, as it's super-soft and stylish. However, the entire shirt started to come apart along the hemline after a few months, due to poor quality stitching. Otherwise, I'd recommend this as a great low-key shirt for outdoors enthusiasts.

Bought this as a good friend's wedding gift. I have to say it's a pretty ingenious gift idea for the person who has practically everything and loves to imbibe in some frosty beverages outdoors. I'm sure it'll get used countless times along the backyard barbecue and for short-approach trips to the crag.

* Please note, you'll need to purchase a five gallon bucket separately. Not a big deal, as they're super cheap at the local home improvement store.

Purchased these as an alternative to my Dragon NFX2s. I'll start out by saying they're comparable in field of view and fit slightly larger than my NFX2s, but offer a subtle increase in visual acuity, probably due to their cylindrical lens shape.

The Red Sensor lens is great for mixed sun/clouds and low-light conditions. Helmet integration is seamless with my Smith Variance and the pair looks pretty sweet. The anti-fog coating seems to work pretty well with no issues in that department. Don't have a lot more to say about these, as I've only taken them out twice this season.

Bought this as a gift for my girlfriend, but I also have the male-specific model of this boot, so I'm no stranger to its outstanding grip on ice and snow, as well as its overall warmth in cold, wintry conditions. Besides being super practical for wintertime, the Back To Berkeley Boot is super stylish, so you'll never feel like you're wearing the clunky boots from your youth.

This is one of the warmest flannels in my entire wardrobe, hands down. It's made of a fuzzy fleece material that's much thicker than standard flannels, so you'll be able to wear this on those colder autumn and winter days. Just bought it, but I could see it working well for snowboarding underneath your waterproof shell. Fits just right with a slightly tailored cut that's neither too baggy, nor overly tight and athletic. For reference, I'm 5'8" and 150lbs, bought a medium and it's sized just right.

This is one of the best droppers on the market if you're seeking a smooth, simple option that's free of the gimmicky BS and reliable as hell. Installed this past June and haven't had a single problem after 40 rides or so. The lever is simple to actuate, resulting in smooth drops and quick returns back to its upright saddle position. I'm running it with an archaic 2x drivetrain (still like my granny gear!), and the lever doesn't crowd the bars too badly.

You can't adjust its return speed, but it's a perfect return that's neither too fast, nor overly slow and sluggish. I find it doesn't punch my undercarriage like some others with faster returns (cough, cough Reverb). Also, I haven't experienced any side-to-side play, which is a nice departure from some of the other big names in the field.

From the uncompromising field of view to the speedy lens change, the NFX2 is an amazing goggle. They look incredible, kind of like an old-school cylindrical goggle, but upgraded with a futuristic frameless aesthetic. They're a bit smaller than the original NFX, which is good if you don't prefer the Daft Punk-esque look on the mountain.

However, these fail miserably on deep powder days. This season has been absurdly deep in Utah, with many days seeing fresh powder with overhead face shots. The Swift Lock system is susceptible to incoming snow, should you get barreled with a hefty spray of powder. Some of the days I've had absolutely no problem with powder coming through, others I've had to remove the lens after every lap to wipe away the inside lens. Probably has to do with the snow's moisture content and the small space tolerance along the lens attachment/bottom seal.

If Dragon is listening, I'd recommend revising the bottom seal, so you don't have to worry about powder flying through. It's hard enough to see on those deep powder days, let alone with powder coating the inside lens of your goggles. Also, adding back the lens ventilation holes of the original NFX would help with condensation build-up on those soaking-wet days.

Just picked up a pair of these jeans, so take this review as my initial impressions. So far, I'm digging the antique stone wash, which is stylish without being obnoxiously faded. The fit is pretty much spot-on for straight leg pants, with plenty of room to move without being baggy. They're stretchy enough for climbing at the gym and light-duty hikes. Another cool feature are the enormous pockets. Seriously, I don't think I've encountered jeans with larger pockets. Should be great for carrying a bunch of stuff around town.

Love my new Union Forces for their responsive highbacks, customizable fit, and plush straps. They really hit a sweet spot for most riders, excelling everywhere on the mountain without being too aggressive, yet still offering ample support for charging hard.

The super-flexible toe strap is one of my favorite features, wrapping the tip of my boots without slipping off or requiring re-adjustments throughout the day. Plush, boot-wrapping ankle straps keep me locked in without nasty pressure points- even when I crank 'em down super tight.

Mounted them on a Salomon Super 8, which is my pow/freeride/cruiser board and I couldn't be more happy (ok, maybe if I mounted up a pair of Atlas bindings!). The only thing I'd love to see on future Forces is a canted footbed from the STs and Atlas Bindings, as this would heighten the overall control and comfort levels.

First day wearing these, so take this review with a grain of salt. These are some of the most comfortable kicks I've ever worn. You'll immediately notice how light they feel underfoot, then the responsive cushioning and support- almost like walking on a springy cloud. Unreal.

Picked these up for my sister, who came out to visit me in the Wasatch for some hiking adventures. These shoes help up admirably, and she loved the grip and overall flexibility provided. The lugged sole seemed to power up steep trails a lot better than the trail shoes I was wearing at the time.

Quintessential shades for daily activities and laid-back use. I've worn them everywhere from casual boat outings on mild summer days to the summit of a 13,000ft peak with crazy winds. They're super lightweight and solid enough for hiking and light activity. I picked up the matte black + red iridium, which works well for blocking harsh light in the mountains and desert on sunny days.

Like another review stated, I pretty much wear these socks on every ride. They sit mid-calf for plenty of coverage while I'm trail riding past abrasive brush, yet they're not overly long on hot summer days. Stretchy, thin-wearing fabric dries quickly and wicks moisture off my feet as I sweat. Plus, the contrasting red trim and classic CC logo adds a subtle, yet uniquely stylish aesthetic on the road or trail.

It's relatively low-key, yet still stylish on the trail. It keeps you cool on hot days and fits great. Note, it's a bit slimmer in cut than Dakine's other offerings, such as the Rail Jersey. Still wouldn't consider it on par with cycling jerseys worn by XC riders, just a bit more tailored than your usual all-mountain apparel.

Bought this tent as a graduation present for my nephew who's quite a bit taller than me at 6'5" . He loves the roomy interior, which is the main reason I bought him this model. Plenty of space for two to three adults, depending on your preferences for sleeping layout and stretching out. The MtnGlo lights are a nice touch, but only come with one strand, so lighting is more for ambiance than playing card games and other activities. You can always add another strand for extra lighting. Oh, and he tells me it's quite sturdy in breezy weather, which means it'll withstand most weather scenarios and conditions.

This an exceptional example of less being more, in terms of comfort and overall functionality. Its simple polyester fabric dries quickly and features an anti-stink treatment that's kept me from offending my riding buddies thus far (regular poly layers usually get really funky, especially in summer). Plus, its relaxed fit feels great without being overly baggy like freeride clothes or skin-tight like XC cycling jerseys.

I didn't realize how bad my old, scratched-up sunglasses were- until I donned a pair of these sweet shades. I primarily use the Stunt Sunglasses for mountain biking, due to their grippy temples that fit great with a helmet. And although not polarized (at least this particular version), the Spectron 3+ lens delivers crystal clarity in super-bright conditions, with plenty of contrast and accurate color rendition. Best of all, they're relatively affordable, especially compared to well-known competitors.
