Familiarity: I've used it several times

Are you new to Selle SMP product? Are you tired of trying saddle after saddle trying to find one that fits well, is comfortable ride after ride after ride, and doesnt ruin the look of your bike? Look no further fam. Youve found it! This saddle is probably the most comfortable saddle Ive ever ridden. At first I was hesitant, due to never having a selle saddle before and i have a pretty delicate rear end due to multiple injuries (Thats a story for later). From the first ride, I was hooked. The channel cut down all the nerve pain and pinching I used to get on regular saddles, the lip in the back provides comfy support on climbs, and the nose of the saddle gives you a good position when youre in attack mode. After using it time after time, it has only gotten more comfortable and my tailbone has really appreciated it. This is a great saddle for anyone looking for their last saddle ever. Works great on road, gravel or mountain bikes! Really is a one saddle quiver and the workmanship is excellent. 100% handmade in Italy. They are truly dedicated to the product they make and stand by it even more so. It is still family owned and operated and youll be hard pressed to find better quality for the price. Get out there and sit on one and you will understand why!

I used this blanket as a nice wind barrier under my sleeping bag in my hammock, as a blanket around the fire, and a sleeping pad for sleeping under the stars. It is very lightweight, however it provides that extra little bit of warmth and comfort that is needed during cold desert nights or even just around the house. I would recommend keeping this in your car as a go to for everyday use!

I used this blanket as a sleeping pad, wind blanket in my hammock, shawl for around the campfire, etc. It is versatile, packs down fairly small, is very warm and provides a nice barrier from the cold and the ground. A must have to keep in your car for picnics, weekend camping trips and bonfires. Wont go back to regular blankets after this one. ***Bonus**** works great as a cape if you run really fast, otherwise youll trip on the ends of the blanket. Only recommend as a cape if you can run real fast.

Raddest car camping stove system ever

I was able to use this system out in the desert whilst car camping and climbing with some friends. It is an extremely efficient system, heats up quickly, is easy to clean, plenty of volume for soups, stews, coffee, cereal, rocks, or whatever else you want to put in it. It also cools down very quickly and the lid, when open gives you a perfect handle to hold it by. I would definitely recommend having this as part of your gear supply if you do a lot of camping and need an efficient, small stove that is versatile and clean.

Used this harness for ice climbing for the first time and I loved it. Enough slots for tools but not so many you feel over burdened by straps and loops. Does run a touch small but a m/l fit me great. I have a 32 inch waist! I am excited to use this one more and put it to the test!

I am fairly new to climbing and I wouldnt recommend this shoe for a beginner climber as it is a pretty aggressive shoe. That being said, this shoe grips like none other. It was able to catch the smallest of footholds and stay there without issue. I had no worries about my feet slipping and I look forward to climbing in these more. They do fit fairly true to size as far as climbing shoes go. Toe box was a little narrow but they do break in really well.

I absolutely love these gloves. Ive never used a trigger finger mitten until I got these and I am so glad I did. They stay super warm and keep my hands dry without fail. Ive used them in 5 degree weather and 35 degree weather. A super solid option for a good mitten.
***Make sure you keep your gloves treated with a leather waterproofing treatment to improve waterproofing***

Super fun all around deck for ripping groomies and hitting the park. Holds up decently well in deeper snow if youre going mach 5. The blunt nose and tail make for a good float and this thing stomps landings like nobodies business. Would recommend for that person who is riding mostly groomers and park with a little bit of pow when it storms.

I was able to rock these bad boys for a week riding deep snow, both on resort and off piste. I have to say, I am converted from regular snowpants and will forever wear bibs. I was able to stash everything I needed in the many pockets as well as dump excess heat during boot packs thanks to the thigh vents. They transition effortlessly in function and style from backcountry to last chair and everything in between. I stayed dry and happy and was able to keep moisture and a cold surprise off my backside when the inevitable edge catch happens.

This board is one of my all time favorite decks. If you are looking to rip the park with authority and look good doing it, this is the plank for you. Locks into rails like a final answer on are you smarter than a fifth grader. Even with a softer flex, it still feels stable if you feel the need to emulate an f-16 fighter jet, or a peregrine falcon. Fast, durable and so much fun.
