Good first pad for beginner/intermediate climbers, and a great supplementary pad if you've got something bigger as well. Good thickness at 4 inches with fairly firm foam is a good balance of protection without being overly heavy or cumbersome to move around. Good secure closure and solid carry system keeps the pad higher up so it doesn't get in your way while scrambling or hiking steep approaches. Solid pad overall and pretty unbeatable for the price.

Grabbed these in the tawny port color and they are great! I get lots of compliments on the color, its fairly subtle but a nice change of pace from more traditional colors.

Nice clean fit, slim and straight but not tight by any means. The stretch makes them even more comfortable and good for active stuff like riding bikes around town. Fit true to size, great inseam length for me, normally a 30 inch inseam and they don't drag.

These are a great go to pair of jeans that everyone should have in their wardrobe. Slim straight fit looks great, not too baggy and not overly tight, just a nice clean modern look. Seems to be made of very durable denim. Fits true to size in the waist, and the inseam is perfect for me, I have a 30 inch inseam and these are the perfect length.

I picked these up in the red clay color and get tons of compliments on them, really vibrant and good looking in person. Slim straight fit is a classic that makes them versatile enough to wear casually but can be dressed up as well.

Fit true to size, normally a 32 and thats the size I got in these. They have a little bit of stretch to them and are a lightweight fabric making them very comfortable. They do have a longer 32.5 inch inseam though, I am normally a 30 inch inseam and have to roll them up to keep them from dragging but they still look nice with a roll at the bottom.

These things are awesome! I got the limeade flavor and they are seriously like candy. I used them to fuel during a half marathon and they were great. Will definitely use for my next one. Easy to open and eat on the run. No stomach issues, great source of quick energy and the little caffeine hit helps give that extra boost. Can't wait to try the rest of the flavors.

Simple webbing belt. Nothing fancy but it holds my pants up like its supposed to. Buckle is not removable. Im a 31/32 waist and the s/m fits fine with the prong going in the 3rd of the 6 available holes.

I bought this as a gift for my brother to use with his new GoPro and he absolutely loves it! He raves about it every time I see him.

Its fairly small but he was able to use it as a carry on for his flight with a tablet, laptop, and a change of clothes in it. Good size for day hikes, easy to carry snacks, extra layers, sunscreen, etc. and fits up to a 2L hydration bladder for easy hydration.

The integrated shoulder mount and chest mount are his favorite part and allowed him to get lots of great video from his adventures without having to rig something up to hold the gopro or carry it around.

I liked my pair so much I bought a pair for my running buddy as a gift since he was in need of new shoes. He likes his as much as I like mine.

He had the same experience I did in that they fit great right out of the box, did not require any break in and have not given him any blisters or hot spots. In his previous shoes he was getting a blister between his pinky and next toe, no issues with that in these.

He also found them to run about a half size small, his Nike's were a 10 and he went up to a 10.5 in these and they fit great and make for happy feet and running.

I gave this as a gift and the recipient really liked it. Its a good length to give you more coverage and warmth without worrying about it dragging on the ground.

High quality down is a very efficient insulator thats great at trapping warm air and keeping it close to your body. The inside is lined with a soft microfleece material as well that adds to the warmth and comfort of the jacket. It is not waterproof but is water resistant to help shed light moisture.

The hood is removable which is a nice feature, and the fur is also removable from the hood so you have a few different ways you can wear it.

Looks great in person, not boxy or overly fitted, has a nice nice flattering feminine fit.

I gave these as a gift and the person I gave them to loves them! Super soft merino wool is comfortable and warm without being itchy. Great casual use glove and with the flip over mitten they offer great versatility and allow you to maintain a some dexterity or go mitten mode for extra warmth. Taupe color is really nice looking in person as well.

I bought these as a Christmas gift for my dad and he loves them. Has not done any hiking in them but wears them for walking the dog, shoveling snow, after skiing, etc. They are super warm and keep his feet nice and dry. The offer great grip in winter conditions and are comfortable for all day use. They fit true to size and are a great option for all types of winter use!

These things are awesome! I dont have any other bluetooth buds to compare them to since these were the first ones I picked up, but after using them I dont feel the need to try anything else.

I use them for biking and running and couldnt be happier with their performance. I typically wear them for up to 2 hours at a time and have no discomfort at all. They also stay in place exceptionally well, I never have to mess with them when im running and getting super sweaty.

I dont have any issues with the charge, when i get back from whatever I was using them for, I plug them in, they are typically charged within an hour and I put them back in the handy case they came with for their next adventure.

Onboard mic/remote funtions well, can answer calls, hear and be heard by the person on the other end just fine. Easy to adjust volume, pause/resume, ff/rw and change tracks.

One look around the tram line at snowbird or jackson hole will tell you everything you need to know. These bindings are the clamp of choice for hard charging riders who cant afford to lose a ski for good reason.

The all metal construction is basically indestructible. Ive got old pairs of these that have easily 200+ days on them and function just like they did when they were new.

Short mounting zone allows for the most natural flex of the ski, eliminating the 'dead zone' feeling you can get from bindings with longer heel tracks. The only drawback to that is they have very little adjust-ability for different boot sole lengths.

Very high elasticity coupled with the pivoting heel piece allows for the ski to stay on and you to recover when the binding does not need to release, eliminating annoying and unsafe pre releases, while allowing for a smooth consistent release when they do need to come off.

They are on the more expensive side, but honestly its an investment due to the insane durability of these things and their unmatched performance. Seriously its the only binding Ill use. Getchya some.

Nice fairly comfortable headphones for casual use. I use them in the office and wear them for 8+ hours a day, towards the end of the day they can get a little uncomfortable but nothing terrible.

Nice sounding for a wide variety of music and great at helping block out outside noise without bleeding noise out so you can keep your tunes to yourself. Folds up nice and small for easy transportation with the included carrying bag. At this price you really can't go wrong.

I've been hearing about these for years and was always a little skeptical. As I started to run more and more I noticed I was getting some soreness in my old man knees so I figured it couldn't hurt to give them a try. What a difference they have made!

These offer great support for not only my knees and have greatly reduced the soreness I was getting there but also my upper legs as well as lower core, allowing me to add miles and improve recovery time. I definitely notice my quads are alot less sore the day after a long run than they were without these.

They are supposed to fit tight to provide the necessary compression and support, I'm 5'10" 145-150 lbs depending on the day with about a 31 inch waist and after trying both a small and medium on I settled on the medium. They don't leave much to the imagination if you know what I mean, so i still wear a pair of shorts over them.

Overall super happy with this purchase and will probably grab a pair of the insulated ones for cold outside use as well. Grab some and feel the difference!

Needed a new pair of running shoes and picked these up after seeing them in person and boy am I glad I did! Very comfortable out of the box, I have not gotten any hot spots or blisters which I didn't think was possible especially in new shoes.

Mesh construction is very breathable and I can definitely tell a difference from my previous shoes. They do run small though, I went up a half size from my normal size and probably could have gone up a whole size, also seem to be slightly narrow which isnt a problem for me but if you have wider feet I would probably go up a whole size.

Boost midsole definitely works as advertised, good cushion with being too soft and energetic response combined with how light these are I feel like I can run longer without getting as tired. Grab a pair and get running!

I bought these as a gift for my brother, he loves them and wears them everywhere! They were a little stiff at first but broke in nicely and are very comfortable. He took them on an impromptu 10 mile walkabout one day and said he didnt have any discomfort, blisters, etc.

They fit true to size, he was replacing another pair of Adidas in a 8.5 and went with the same size and they fit great. Also really nice looking in person, I'm probably going to end up buying a pair for myself as well!

I have never worn a bike helmet, which makes me a dumb dumb. I'm much less dumb and way more inclined to wear my helmet after picking up this beauty!

Super lightweight for starters, after a few minutes of riding I forget I have it on. The best helmet is the one you forget you are wearing. The biggest selling point was all the giant vents, and boy oh boy do they work! I run very warm and am what you may call 'a sweaty guy' this thing really lets the airflow through to help combat that.

As the other review notes it does run small so if you are on the edge of sizes definitely go up. Super nice boa adjustment to help dial in your perfect fit. Sits down nicely on your head so you dont look like a mushroom as well. flip visor in the up position for extra hip style points, or down for functional sun blocking. Fits well with sunglasses, no pressure points.
