I'm a big Altra fan - of the fit, and the zero drop. These are my first pair of mid/max cushion shoes, and they have been amazing so far. Cycling is my main sport and running has always been a little challenging - the extra give these have make it much easier on my knees when running on flat ground (uphill and downhill have always been oddly fine.) Two thumbs up for these!

The Superiors were my first pair of Altra's, and are my favorite pair of trail shoes hands down. The unique Altra fit is perfect for my feet, and these were great right out of the box for 9 miles on the trails. I rotate between two pair for any long adventure in the mountains. These things are the best.

Really really psyched on the new Descensionist pack. Basically Patagonia took the lightweight Ascensionist climbing pack, and added an avy tool pocket and a side zip to access the main pocket. This is definitely a larger volume pack, it seems a little big for a 40L, so I used it mostly for bigger missions and stuck with a Snowdrifter 30L for everyday tours. Carries skis or a board well, and has the burlier fabric from the latest Ascensionist packs which held up well throughout the winter.

favorite pack
5 5

I have a strong affinity for any Black Hole bag or pack from Patagonia, and I was immediately psyched on the new lightweight collection. This is the first lightweight piece I snagged for myself, and I ended up using this pack more than any of my others packs last summer. It's a great hiking pack, travel pack, or I've used it quite a bit running errands or commuting on my bike as well. I like packs with lots of pockets and features typically, but this simple cinch pack is awesome in it's simplicity. Easy to open, plenty of space in the main compartment, and two zippered pockets if you need to keep something separate, or well secured. The fabric has held up just as well as the heavy duty Black Hole fabric, and barely shows any wear after almost a solid year of use.

It took me a little while to figure out and really love the Storm Racer. It's now one of my favorite jackets, and if it's nasty enough for this to come out of the closet it's sure to be a good adventure. I'm a wannabe product tester for Patagonia, so when I received this sample last spring I started going for road rides wearing it anytime I could catch a good rain storm. After a few rides I started to appreciate how sweet it is, and realized that it's really just a Houdini, made out of super lightweight 3 layer fabric. It's seam taped, and fully waterproof, while still having the same self stuffing feature of the regular Houdini. I had a chance to head to BC to ride for a week at the end of the summer, and this jacket was at the top of my packing list. I spent several days riding in it all day, and it worked incredibly well. Very breathable for a waterproof jacket, with a great fit on the bike as well. Can't really say enough good things about it, or how much I like riding in it.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

If you like your Nano Air jacket, you're going to love the LW Nano Air Hybrid here. It takes the stretch and breathability that make the original so awesome, a step further. I've been wearing mine a ton backcountry skiing on colder days, mountain biking, and as an around town piece. I find myself wearing it even more than a regular Nano Air since it's lighter and more versatile. The back stretch panel is from a Fall trail running piece and is super comfortable with what seems like just the right amount of stretch. The thumb loops and stretch material that make up the cuff are the icing on the cake - it's not often guys get thumb loops on a jacket like this.

This thing is great and super easy to use. I have a compressor, but hate firing it up in the home garage since I don't use it that often, and there are times when the compressor actually doesn't work that well to seat a tubeless tire. The Airshot works flawlessly every time and is a much better option than the compressor, or trying to pump like a madman with your floor pump. It usually helps to remove the presta valve core since the Airshot adapter will screw right into the valve stem. Another bonus is that this travels well and you can use it on the road or camping if you need to. Definitely would recommend!

Patagonia makes some great fleece jackets, but I think this hands down might be the best all around. Kind of a sleeper compared to the more popular Synchilla, R1, and Better Sweaters. Warm, comfortable, sharp looking, never pills, doesn't hold dog hair - win, win win. Very psyched I finally got one of these, haven't taken it off in a week. Definitely worth checking out!
