The Giro Air Attack is my favorite helmet I've owned! Its extremely light weight and sleek. I love the comfort of the helmet as well, does not feel bulky or top heavy like others. Let's not forget that this helmet comes in a wide range or colors which is awesome. I would definitely buy again.

Great shoe for just starting out! Comfortable, rarely do my feet hurt. I got them a little small so they could stretch a bit, I have more of a narrow foot and these fit like a glove. Edging is pretty good as well just wish they were a tad stiffer, but over all I love them! I suggest these shoes for any beginners to intermediate climbers.

Honestly I don't know why it took me so long to buy one of these belts and now I have two! I originally read an SIA article a few years ago about Arcade and Cody Townsend and thought to myself, I need one of these. This belt is so comfortable, I bought my first one and within a week decided to get a second so I could leave one on my ski pants and one for all my other jeans. It's like a hybrid of the old baseball belts I would use and using a shoelace. It keeps my ski pants in place and I don't even notice it's there. Ive been telling my friends they need to buy one for themselves. Come next Christmas if they haven't bought one then I know exactly what I'm getting them!

So far I've only used this pack a few times but I'm very impressed with the design. I mainly got this pack for long day hikes, hunting for antler sheds and the occasional overnighter. I tend to always take extra gear, even on a single day hike (maybe it's just the Boy Scout in me) From carrying extra layers, snacks, a hammock, dog treats, etc, I always have plenty of room and the anti gravity system keeps the load light and comfortable.

My first pair of gaiters, which were pretty cheap, did a good job of keeping mud off my pants but once I took them into knee deep snow, they got soaked. I decided I needed something better. After a bit of research I ended up picking the OR Crocodiles. At first i was a little frustrated that the velcro system took a few more seconds to do up compared to the zipper of my old ones but once they're on they are secure and tight. It doesn't bother me anymore and I prefer the velcro because the gaiters stay upright and don't slide down. The Goretex keeps my legs dry and the cordura is strong and durable. I don't suspect that I will have to buy another pair of these soon but in the case that I lose one of them or for some reason they get worn out or ripped i will definitely pick up another pair!

I originally decided to buy the down sweater without the hood for layering under my shell but I've found that I've ended up wearing it around town and for running errands more than skiing. The cold days I did wear it skiing I was very glad I had it, especially those really chilly days when I was sitting on the lift. I'd probably use a down vest a little more for skiing than the down sweater, just because I tend to be a little warmer in the upper body than others. Besides skiing this has been my "go to" jacket from November to March, these northern Utah winters can be cold. The down sweater is very light and comfortable, easy to layer or wear by its self. It's obvious to me why this jacket has so many great reviews, extremely versatile, lightweight and comfortable. Plus it all packs into a single pocket and doesn't take up much space.

I've worn these pants for about 35 days now and I am extremely happy with my purchase. In the past I have owned a lot of "slim fit" style of pants because I don't like overly baggy pants. The Freerider pant wasn't necessarily slim but they definitely weren't baggy and I really like the overall fit. As an aggressive skier it was imperative for me to get a pant that wouldn't get torn up by my ski edges and so far these have held up very well, a few scuffs of course but no rips. The Goretex has kept me dry and I've stayed warm using a variety of different baselayer's depending on the temperatures, I am always able to easily dump heat with the the side zips if needed. One of the biggest reasons I decided to go with the Freerider pant over other similar pants, was all of the pockets. I love the placement and design of the cargo/thigh pockets. From pocketing random items when I leave the house in the morning to carrying extra neck gaiter, cliff bar, chapstick and glove liners, the pockets have been very useful to me! If the Marmot La Meije pant was available in my size I probaby would've have gone with that, just because of the removable bib, but the La Meije pant had one less pocket. I imagine that these pants will last me a long time but I will definitely be looking to Marmot when I get my next pair of ski pants.

After hearing that Chromapop enhances clarity and natural color giving you more detail, I know i had to give them a shot. And am I glad I did they have made a huge difference in my confidents to charge hard on days where i normally wouldn't be able to see in harsh/low light conditions.

I originally got this as a mid layer for skiing and it works perfect for that. The Pertex Quantum does a fantastic job keeping the down dry as well. I have ended up wearing this on a daily basis as it is super comfortable and lightweight. The fit is pretty good a little tight in the armpits but does not bother me at all. Fully satisfied with the purchase

I primarily use these bibs for skiing and snowboarding; they have been perfect for me! The regular fit gives you plenty of room in the legs without being baggy at all. They are a little tighter around the boots but still got room to work with. The double zippers on the side legs and torso are very convenient. I suggest these bibs for your winter alpine needs!

Had this helmet for a few year and its been great! The removable ear pieces was a must for me, fits great without them. I had a harder time with other brands having too much room on the sides the adjustable strap on the back of the helmet really help me dialed in my fit. No more helmet bouncing around! Oh and not to mention at this price its a steal.
