Russel G.'s Bio

I'm a first responder who spends most of my free time outside doing all of the things.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Was looking for an all around resort board and landed on this one. I'm 6' 175 and went with the 160 wide at the recommendation of the fine people at Backcountry. Got a handful of days in and man this thing is fast on groomers, yet surprisingly maneuverable in the trees and bumps, especially for the size. Super stable camber board that flies like a rocket. And I agree that the Colors/graphics are way better in real life.

Really nice goggles!! I've used this in Colorado at various resorts in all sorts of light and weather conditions. Chromapop makes a huge difference. Really comfortable and huge field of vision. Interfaces perfectly with my Smith helmet (size M). Got the Everyday Red lens. Couldn't be happier.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used this paddle for a few hundred miles, mostly on lakes. I bought it for the carbon blend shaft and the durable blade material, and also blade size of 91 sq/in. It has a moderate catch and low flex shaft. It paddles easily, and is responsive under power. I've found that I have to be more precise with the catch, otherwise the paddle tends to drift. I think this is because the power face is so flat. Great release from the water. Good bracing. For my paddling style, the T- handle feels less comfortable than my other paddles, which have more of a slope. Lever lock adjustment is bomber. Finish is nice and high quality- which it should be for the price tag. It stands up to abuse well too, expecting to get many more years of service. I'm looking forward to using it on some easier river expeditions.

I've used this for a few seasons now for camping, hiking, skiing, paddle boarding, etc., and in all sorts of foul weather it has performed very well. Very warm, especially for the weight. Blocks a good amount of wind. Fits smaller heads- my noggin' is about 22" circumference and this hat is perfect.
