Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I got one of these as a gift for my dad who loves having the newest helmet-audio technology. He loved it so much, I got one for myself. Installation is easy. As long as your helmet is a Smith Audio compatible helmet, the speakers just drop right in.

Sound is just as you'd expect from Skullcandy: Plenty loud and good quality, just not superb. My favorite part is the Bluetooth functionality. I always hated having the wires get it my way and losing the controller deep in my jacket so I can't mute or pause. Now, you always know your controllers are on your ear and the buttons are big enough to push without taking your gloves off.

My only qualm is about the actual speakers... they should have some sort of padding or soft material because sometimes they get to be uncomfortable... I can feel them on my ears if my helmet is too tight or something. This would also help limit movement inside of the ear pockets as well...

I have had no problems with the wires shorting out yet, I will update if this becomes an issue.. Otherwise, if you have the money to spend, this is very worth it.

4 stars instead of five because of the high price mixed with mediocre quality headphones.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I'm hoping I never actually have to use this baby but if I ever do, I know how to use it, it's easy to use, it will work, and you can't beat the price!

Make sure you practice though!!! If you've never used a beacon, practice practice practice. Although this is easy to use, you don't want to panic when someone's life is at stake.

Nice work BCA

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love this helmet. I got the L/XL and the 360 K2 dialed fit system fits to your head just perfectly. The most comfortable helmet I've worn. No goggle gap on these, they ride at a good spot on your head.

Not the lightest helmet on the market, but never a problem. When doing a lot of hiking or working, I get pretty hot in this helmet, even with the vents open.

And about the vents... I notice when they close, they don't really align completely. Some of the vent holes never completely get covered. Hasn't really been a huge problem for me, but it kind of makes it look cheaper than the price point.

The audio is great! Great sound and great setup. The cord is pretty lame. It's difficult to find the control and when you do, impossible to fiddle around with it when you have gloves on.

All in all, no regrets on this helmet!

A must-have for your tuning kit. Works wonders on my edges. Smooth's them out and takes the rust away just like that.

Bye two, or three

Fit: Runs large

Most comfortable boxers I've ever warn. I love merino wool, I love Stoic, and these didn't let me down. Medium boxers usually fit me perfect. I got medium here and could have probably done to a small if I wanted more compression, but they aren't too loose by any means.

Fit: True to size

These are some of the most comfortable socks I've ever owned. My feet NEVER get cold while I'm wearing them and the Merino Wool is such a nice material. I'll be buying more of these.

The fit is great, I'm a size 10.5 and the Larges fit perfectly.

Ankle height is perfect for casual use or for use with Mid high hiking shoes.

By far my favorite hoodie by The North Face. The sherpa fleece keeps me so warm and cozy! I love how the zipper comes up to the perfect spot to keep the elements off your neck area.

I'm 5'11, 150 pounds, and the medium fits perfectly. The sleeves come to the perfect spot and have a stretchy material to help for the perfect fit if you've got bigger hands. I'm interested to see how it will hold up through the wash (will keep you updated) but so far, this is the perfect hoodie. Worth the money.

Got the China Blue which is much "bluer" than the picture shows. That's not a problem because I still do like the color, just took me by surprise.

Overall quality of the sweatshirt is great. Quality fabric, fits well. Personally, it's not my favorite style and design by North Face. The logo on the hood is a bit much for me and I'm not sure I like the look of the stitching.

I'm 5'11, 160 and a Large fit pretty well.

I wear my Backcountry Buff every time I go skiing. My face gets cold easily and my problem with most face masks is the fact that you can't breathe through the material. This Buff is warm and thin.

I wear this long-sleeve everywhere but I love it as a base-layer. It's extremely warm and the driRelease material is awesome at keeping the sweat off my body.

I'm 5'11, 150 pounds and the medium fit great. The sleeves are definitely a little more tight than I anticipated but I've learned to love this shirt more than I thought I would.

It's great for hanging around the house, skiing, or walking around town... But be sure to wear another layer if it's cold out.

I love everything about this beanie. I wear outside every day and it keeps my noggin warm in the bitter Utah conditions.

Not only is it warm, it's also very stylish. Can't go wrong with this beanie!

Only issue I have is it makes my head itch when I wear it too long. I've got a sensitive scalp though, so that's my problem, not the hat.
