Oh, there's a river that winds on forever
I'm gonna see where it leads
Oh, there's a mountain that no man has mounted
I'm gonna stand on the peak
Out there's a land that time don't command
Wanna be the first to arrive
No time for ponderin' why I'm-a wanderin'
Not while we're both still alive

I have nearly three months on these bibs now. They're rugged, waterproof, and all around awesome. The fit on them is excellent, with actriculation in the knees and crotch that provides mobility for boot packs. The outer fabric is super reinforced along the boots, and durable everywhere else. I also LOVE the myriad of pockets, with several pant pockets of different sizes and shapes as well as two veristale bib pockets for a beacon or a gaiter.
These pants are pretty heavy though. They are made with Gore-Tex, which guarantees a waterproof and breathable fabric, but I will still be grabbing my Rush LT pants for touring as those are more breathable and lighter than these bibs. However I will be grabbing these for any big sends I am working towards and for every inbound day for the next couples years. I can trust that the fabric on these pants will hold up to every branch, rock, and edge that might come across them, and I can trust that the Gore-Tex membrane will keep me warm and dry no matter the conditions.

Super rad!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

These goggles rock. I have used Smith goggles for years and the tech in these new 4D lenses is really something else. They really do expand your vertical vision, allowing you to see further down that any normal goggle does. The MAG changing is super simple and easy, I can do it without taking the goggles off and even with a glove on one handed. A huge plus is that the goggles come in a premium hard carrying case, something that my previous IO/X's didn't even come with!
So far I have gotten 3 lenses for these goggles. The Everyday Red is perfect for sun, overcast, or even a light storm. The Storm Rose was awesome during the 2ft powder storms we had this past weekend here in Utah. Haven't tested out the Silver Sun lens yet, but should be perfect for spring skiing! Also, Smith sells clear lenses for night skiing on their site.
As far as fit goes, these land somewhere between the regular I/O goggles and my old I/O X's (now the I/O XL's). These big goggles might not fit smaller faces well, but should fit normal faces just fine.

These shoes have served me running, walking, hiking, climbing, and everything else in between. I can't really find a use case that they don't work for! I brought them with me on my trip to Japan. Wore them on the plane, walking around the cities in the rain, and eventually they were the shoes that helped me summit Mt Fuji! 100% recommend.

Big-ass Tent
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Holy crap is this an big tent! With plenty of room for a 6'4" guy to stand up fully inside, it sleeps 3 VERY comfortably and could easily fit 6 as advertised, maybe even 7 if you got some shorter or smaller people. It's very easy to setup, with color coded poles and large printed instructions on the inside of the carry bag. I love the small pockets on the roof designed so you can stuff a headlamp into and it'll diffuse the light to nicely light up the interior.

Built like a Tank

... and the rack weighs about as much as one as well! Proper lifting technique or a helping hand is very much needed installing the rack when equipped with the add-on.
But despite the weight, there are only upsides to rack. It's built super solidly, enough so that I took a nearly fully loaded rack on some light offroading trails and had no issues. The adjustment on the rack to get the perfect secure fit for each bike is easy and inspires confidence on those longer drives. Also, the trail doc is key for those pre-ride tuneups.
The only other thing I wish this rack had is a front wheel lock, because even with the back wheel and frame locked down with the integrated cable lock it would be easy for a thief with some know-how to come and take your front tire in a matter of seconds.

Sleek and mean pedaling machine!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

(Excuse my winter gut that I'm still trying to work off)
I took this Arktos in an XL frame down to Moab this past weekend, and here are my thoughts.
This bike pedals excellently, rides like a dream, and handles the Moab single-track like a champ. This bike in a 29'er is THE perfect trail machine for a tall 6'4" guy like myself (the smaller tires had me scrapping pedals every so often). The efficiency of my uphill climbs was second to none, and riding downhill was snappy and excellent as well.
Small brands like Alchemy are outperforming big brands like Yeti and Santa Cruz when it comes to their bike frame geometries and build quality, and this bike is perfect evidence of that. The Arktos is one of the best trail bikes on the market, hands down.

For Maximum Send

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Got my first laps in this helmet going downhill a run in a way the creators of this helmet probably didn't intend. But what I can say is this helmet is comfortable, breathes really well, and is super sturdy. Might be a tad bit heavier than other options but that weight instills confidence that the helmet is built to take an impact and still hold up. Can't wait to try it out biking!
