Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm a big believer that 85mm underfoot is the best Wasatch ski.
I've always hated the lightweight fat skis that ski like wet cardboard when conditions arent dreamy.
This is not the case with the Nebo.
Time after time they keep proving me wrong that they should ski like crap. On wind-blasted chutes or corral reef, they hold an edge and dampen the chatter without feeling flimsy.

And as much as it hurts to say, i find myself grabbing these over my 85mm dayli drivers, Well done DPSxBackcountry you guys did a good job

This jacket it's absolutely bombproof.
Took it down to Patagonia to climb Cerro Torre and Torres del Paine massive and was absolutely impressed. Held up like a tank
Kept me warm in the hard winds and did not get in the way.
So glad I took it down there

Before this shirt my experience with stoic was awesome.
The fit is super wanky,
Im not a buff dude or have a crazy broad back but it is very tight across the shoulders and chest and loose around the waist.
Either people in the northern countries have particullary short arms or someone messed up in the design chain.
If you have your arms down it on the verge of looking small but as soon as you lift them it looks like you are wearing a some 12 Y/O s shit.
The texture and feel is also weird it feels reallt plastic and stiff. You wont go unnoticed if you take it off somewhere quiet
I tossed it in the washer as soon as i got it and that made it a bit better and with time is getting a softer.
Overall im disappointed and wouldnt recommend it :(

Although they are a bit unconfortable at first, the more i wore them, the better they felt.
they are perfect for short easy rides, long enduro technical trails or having fun in the pump track
The amount of protection is enough for low to medium impacts
they stay on and dont move very much,
super breathable and comfy
i would totally recomend them for trail and enduro riding
