Familiarity: I've used it several times

Here's what I said when I bought him the 30.

"I bought this for my dad for his birthday, he's from Boston, and he loves sailing. He takes it on all of his sailing trips, it seems to hold up to hot days well and the ice lasts a long time, keeps your beer ice cold...as cold as Matt Ryan in Superbowl 51. My dad calls it "tha hoppa" because people from Massachusetts are weird.

Go Pats."

This one is the same but bigger.

Go Pats

These come in fun colors, AND fun shapes. I don't like fun shapes so I cut them into circles and patched up my Uniqlo down jacket that I bought AND ripped in Japan...I walked into a fence...but that's neither here nor there.

The patches are easy to apply, they seal the holes, and they hold up to washing/weather just fine!

They look so good! They look better in real life then they do on the internet.
Also, if you can believe it, I stood on some ice the other day, totally fine, didn’t even slip, these pups are grippy as it gets. They’re warm too, I skateboarded down a hill and I was like, “wow, these are warmer than your average Van.” Get these if you wanna look good and feel good all winter long, I’m sure glad I did.

It's light, it's warm, it's breathable, it's technical, and it's classy.
It is the go-to business coat to wear to mountain town meetings.
It's the mountain goer's go-to outdoor coat for mountain top meetings.
It packs well into its own zippered pocket (also can be a pillow in a pinch)

It took me a while to get the fit dialed in, it feels like they designed them to fit better with a helmet, a lot of air gets in through the nose hole. My coworker responded by saying "well maybe you should get a helmet", I responded "NO" and, now, here we are.

The lenses are nice and I love how they look.

It packs down super small, it's super light, and it's super comfy. I took it backpacking, my friends made fun of me for bringing a chair, I was the one laughing in the end.

I also watched the second half of the Falcons/Patriots Superbowl sitting in this chair and we all know how that ended, so, I can't say for sure, but I will anyways, this chair won the Patriots the Superbowl.

It is a great chair that can be used in many different settings.

Are they as good as the original Lethal Weapon? NO, but I can't think of anything that is...except maybe a Childish Gambino album. What I'm trying to say is, these are the third best gloves in my life.

I wasn't much of a bike glover, in fact I was starting to think I was too old to bike anymore...Until I found the Giro Remedy X2 Gloves, I like that they fit snugly, they vent well, and the pads protect in all of the danger points.

They have proven to me, that I am indeed "[not] too old for this."

Update: After a season of not-so-frequent use the seams have started to come undone. They're still functional but they are coming a bit unraveled.

I work at Backcountry. Sometimes we get to go on work camping trips, you know, for team building, fun, and to try out new gear. My team went on one of those camping trips. I tried out some new gear. I tried out the Sea To Summit Comfort Plus Insulated Sleeping Pad. It was in a word, “rad.” But that’s not a work that I’m comfortable using so I’ll say, it worked like a dream. (they should put me on the marketing team).

But seriously, I sleep on my side and get cranky when camping because my hips don’t lie! In fact, they tell the truth and the truth hurts…I know the truth hurts because it wakes me up 100 times a night to remind me. That’s where the Comfort Plus comes in, it is lightweight, it is warm, and it keeps you completely off the ground and comfortable all night. That’s really all I have to say, it was the best sleep I’ve ever had camping. If Shakira is anything like me, she’d do well to get a Sea To Summit Comfort Plus Insulated Sleeping Pad.

Hey, are you tryna cook the heck out of some camping food? LOOK NO FURTHER, The MSR PocketRocket 2 Stove cooks the heck out of some food. It has variable cooking temperatures so you can really get that Gordon Ramsey effect in your meal. (have you ever watched that Youtube video where he cooks eggs? It changed my life.) You can cook in basically any weather condition thanks to the WindClip windshield...This one time I hiked up to this 12000 foot peak and made dinner, it was windier than a January Chicago morning, NO MATTER for the PocketRocket 2, the flame prevailed.

I am fond of this thing, it's light-weight, compact, and it works! Would recommend!

It was a cold winter out here in Utah; I bought new gloves, new socks and a new jacket. Then I got into ski touring and I had to buy new skins…a new pair of ski pants…and some AT bindings…But you get it, winter sports come with a lot of preparations, and those preparations don’t come cheap. That’s why I was pleased to find The North Face Warm Tights, a super warm, durable, breathable base layer at a price that can’t be beat. I’ve hiked a lot of big mountains in these tights, they keep me cool on the way up and warm on the way down and the anti-odor treatment keeps me smelling fresh at the bar. I’ve been warm all winter and I owe thanks, in large part to The North Face Warm Tights.

Are you looking for a headpiece with a tough outer shell, smooth breathability, and flawless adjustability? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions then STOP READING and get you a Smith Forefront Helmet. If you still have reservations, “ohhh I don’t know, my Bell helmet from the 80s works just fine.” Or “ohhh I don’t know if I can justify the cost.” Also STOP READING, cuz I’m mad at you…I’m sorry, I just get worked up about these things, but really, this is a great helmet, the Aerocore (refrigerator tech) technology keeps your head as cool as...I’m running out of ‘cool’ metaphors.

In the end, it’s an expensive helmet, but it’s a really good helmet. It looks good, it works well, and I recommend it.

Hey, are you tryna boil the heck out of some water? LOOK NO FURTHER, The Jetboil MiniMo Stove boils the heck out of some water. My grandma says ‘a watched pot never boils’ she’s clearly never watched a Jetboil boil water. It’ll boil water in just minutes, watch or don’t. And heck, if my grandma was wrong about that, what else could she be wrong about? Am I not the smartest, best looking, funniest kid in school? …No I definitely am all of those things, she just must not have known much about science.

The insulated drink lid allows you to drink straight from the cup, and the push button igniter saves the day if you’ve forgotten your lighter. It’s a nice thing, get one, or don’t, I’m not your grandma!

It was a warm day the day I first tried my Prana Stretch Zion shorts, you see, my thought process was “hey it’s a warm day, I’m going on a hike, I should wear some shorts.” My dad calls them ‘shots’ because he’s from Boston(go Pats), he also calls pizza ‘pitzzer’ and trash ‘rubbish’ so, who really knows what’s going on with that guy. Anyhow, I was in Moab with some friends, (see my reviews on shoes and other assorted articles) it was a warm day, I wore shorts, they fit well, they adjusted to my waist size well, the many assorted pockets accommodated my many assorted things well, everything went well, well, except for the rappel…but we’ll get into that at another time. For now I’ll just say the Prana Stretch Zion Shorts are, well, swell!

P.S. the 10" inseam is where it's at BOI!
