Wife absolutely loves her Re Tool. Definitely a bit more flattering compared to her synchilla which is a full on lounge piece. This is cut a bit more stylish in my opinion and it comes in some great color options. Because of the slightly slimming cut some people will find it to run a bit small. Could be worth sizing up without a doubt.

This is a great piece to have whether you're needing to stay a little bit warmer during the Spring or Fall or even need a good midlayer in the Winter. I found that air permeates somewhat easily through mine in the Nickel colorway so I almost prefer this more as a midlayer that goes under a shell. Great piece though, worth the money!

Needed a decent looking dress shoe last minute for a wedding out in Moab and these did the trick! They fit great and true to size. The only real issues I've had is that dirt can really get a hold of the suede option and the heels on the inside are quite stiff. Almost to the point that they are a bit pokey on the bottom of my heel. Other than that they're great looking shoes that get the job done.

Got this in combination with a new Raleigh Back Alley single speed. Seems to work great and keep the bike from getting stolen. Pretty straight forward but a worthwhile purchase for obvious reasons.

Got this for my Dad this past Father's day and he was so unbelievably stoked. He's a hard working guy who starts getting his hands dirty as soon as he gets home from work. With that said, he usually doesn't even stop to switch out his shirt and tie for proper attire which is why this apron comes in handy. Classic aesthetic and gets the job done.

These are my current day to day shoe that I am using. So comfortable and easy to get on and off. I am a die hard janoski fan (Nike) but the whole Matchcourt lineup is slowly but surely getting more use and attention from me. Probably will get another colorway shortly with how much I use these triple whites.

I've always been on a longboard so haven't ever need to use a traction pad, but recently picked up a short board so a good pad was in order. Seems to be holding up quite well and the kick tail is a big help in getting up. No complaints, quality pad from Dakine.

Half Size Up

Fit: Runs small

Recently took these boots for some testing out on the Na Pali Coast and they did not disappoint. You encounter a lot of water and mud on that trail and I never got any sort of breach and the boots gripped very well. I ended up going a half size up from my normal and am glad I did, they fit perfectly. There is a definite break in period however so give yourself 5 days or so with the boots before any long jaunts in the backcountry.

If you have any questions about the Sundowner please don't hesitate to reach out to me.

This is exactly what you want for Base Camp water needs or for trips with a big group. Myself and 7 others only used this filter out on the Na Pali Coast across 3 days and it was everything we could ever need. Thoroughly impressed with the filtration and how much water you can get in such a short amount of time.

If you have questions about this filter please reach out!
