Whether you are riding hard, or have weak wrists, your bindings will loosen up over time.
If you're lucky, you're at the top of the hill where you might be able to find some tools. For all those other times, you have to deal with the shaky ride back down and that's never fun.

These little tools easily fit into a pocket and will have you riding safe and sound in no time.

No issues with the ratchet yet. I have cranked on it pretty hard already and it doesn't show any sign of weakness. Hopefully it will stay that way. Until then, I'm pretty satisfied!

These are a great gift for the tech savy mom on the go.
TKA 300 fleece is incredibly warm, and the windstopper fabric means hands are able to stay warmer for longer!
There's some sticky silicone along the palm so she'll get a solid grip on her bike or a jogging stroller.

And for all the modern momma's, these gloves have a conductive fabric that lets you use your touch screen phone without having to freeze your hands!

They seem to run a little large.

I've only had these recently, but I can tell you that it's a whole lot better than having to fuss around with the seats and get everything wet from melting snow.
It's usually just my girlfriend and I, so the Powderhound is perfect and an inexpensive option for our 2 boards. (sorry to all the Big Cottonwood hitchhikers)

Fit directly onto our Outback's factory bars. Put it together at night in 10-15 minutes without a hitch.
Locks are great, prevents anyone from running away with our gear while we're having some beers or grub after a day on the mountain.

These seemed like a solid pair of pants. I'm pretty short though, so I didn't think I'd have a good chance with the inseam length on these.

Unfortunately I was right and I'll be returning them shortly.
They are pretty slim, but fit pretty nicely if you have skinny climber's legs.
The construction seemed to be really nice, sad we don't carry a short inseam version :(

Stop your searching, these are the best climbing pants you're going to find.
They're relatively inexpensive, and incredibly comfortable and durable. The elastic waistband and lack of fly reminds me a little too much of sweatpants, but I try to keep function in mind when I climb, and these fit the bill perfectly.

Perfect amount of room to really get a full range of motion when you climb, and they still have a pretty casual look to them if you need to run into town for supplies.

It's cotton, so don't expect the most breathable pair of pants to wear in the summer, but I love wearing these in the fall/spring where a thicker pair of pants are more welcome. I can wear long underwear under these too, and still move around easily.

Nylon belt is more or less useless as the elastic is enough to keep it around my waist. I do clip my chalkbag to it though, as part of the belt is visible on the back.

Recently got the Tokyo G pants since they had a zippered fly, but found that these are much more comfortable to climb in.

Don't get me wrong, these are some slick looking pants.
I love the faded style, and the fabric is super comfortable. I got the Dusty Yellow color and really like it, definitely not bright yellow like the picture. The zippered fly is a nice improvement over the Original G pants

While these pants look awesome and would be great for a night out around town after climbing, I don't feel like they're designed with much motion in mind.
These are slim fitting pants, so when I try and bend my leg, the fabric bunches up behind my knee and prevents a full range of motion. A little articulation at the knee would have solved this, and perhaps I'll have these altered to work a little better. As most other climbers, I have pretty thin legs so slim fitting pants aren't usually a problem.
They do have a crotch gusset, but without being able to bend much at the knee, it doesn't really matter.
Also, there was about 10 inches of extra webbing that I had to cut off the belt. Not sure why you'd need a 40in belt on a pair of 30in waist pants...
I think I'll find myself reaching for my roomier Original G pants to climb in more often.

As a pair of climbing pants, they get 2/5 stars, but as a pair of casual pants, I'd give it 4/5

I was not expecting this warm of a mitten for the price.
These impressed me the second I took them out of the packaging. Super nice leather, and stitching appears to be pretty bomber too. I don't doubt these will last a long time with proper care. There's an extra layer of leather on the palm where you'd grab an edge to add to its durability.

If I did have to point something out that I don't like, it'd be that it's a little narrow. I don't really have wide hands or anything, but it is a little tight. After some use, the leather should stretch and the insulation will pack out to make it more comfortable though

When the temperatures drop and the wind starts feeling a little chilly, that's when its time to take the Apex Bionic jacket out of the closet.
I try to bike everywhere in town, and it can be very disheartening when the frigid winds cut right through your jacket. Once I throw this softshell on, problem solved.
All the pockets act like vents for the jacket too, so if you start to warm up from your ride, you can dump excess heat with a few zips.

I'm about 5'7 and got a medium to wear over hoodies and it works out great.
If you're active during the shoulder seasons, its hard to argue against getting a softshell!

Got this one for my rock climbing girlfriend and it looks/fits great.
She always had a problem with sports bras pushing up on her latissimus dorsi muscles, creating a bit of discomfort
These Sophia bras are cut low around the arms, so its no longer a problem.

Got muscles? Get this bra!

Let's face it(pun intended), not everyone's head is the same shape, so why should goggles only come in one shape?
Cylindrical lenses will still wrap around your face nicely, but if you're serious about being on the hill, you'll want a more durable pair of goggles with better peripheral vision, right?

Enter the Oakley Asian Fit goggles.
They're not just "smaller and narrower"-
These are the same size as the normal A Frames, the only difference, is that the padding tapers off towards the temples, and is added around the nose.
If you find yourself having gaps between your face and your goggles around your nose, you could probably also benefit from this style of goggle.

I have a pair of the Splice asian fit goggles as well, but they don't fit nearly as well as these A Frames do.
They can really take a beating too. I've had mine for over 5 seasons now and they're still going strong.
Swapping the lenses out takes a minute or less. Super simple!

Best fitting goggles!

Got this as a gift to my little asian mom for her birthday.
While the top does have a somewhat low cut, it doesn't seem to be a problem on her petite frame.

She thinks the fabric feels great and it looks cute too.

These are some slick looking shades.
They're light weight, and comfortable to wear around all day.

The nose pads make sure these stay on your face, even during the most radical of maneuvers.

Unfortunately, the construction quality is a little iffy.

I had to go through 3 pairs of these before I got a working pair, with the lenses in the first two being faulty(too big to put on/take off).

Finally got a pair that worked fine, and am satisfied.

You've always looked up to your dad, especially when you were just a young lil' turd.
Well your dad loved his old school short shorts, and so should you.

These have an awesome retro look and fit, and my knees/lower thighs have never been more happy to see the sun.

I'll be happily sporting these at music festivals this year!

Why would you need to spend $300 on another camera?
You've probably quit using digital cameras all together since you've gotten an iphone, so why not just turn it into a bad ass POV cam?

This Outride case comes with everything!!!
It comes with two cases. One allows for touchscreen use, while the other completely seals the phone off to protect it from snow and water. It also comes with the following attachments:
2 flat sticker mounts
2 curved sticker mounts(good for helmets)
1 tripod mount
1 board mount
1 handle bar mount(can be used on a stick)

Super happy I never bought a go pro, these Mophie cases are great!

Unfortunately the ski season is over, but I'll definitely be getting some great footage of our summer shenanigans!

(this is from my review of the regular width Proto HD board)

I was able to demo the hell out of this board last week up at Brighton, UT and I was seriously blown away by the Proto.
Right off the bat, I could tell that the sintered base on this board was FAST, it felt like someone was pushing me down the hill.
Another stand-out feature was the CDS dampening system. Where other boards might slip and slide around, the Proto grips the snow and slices through crusty, tracked out snow.

The true twin shape makes this a blast to play a round on. A medium flex is supportive enough for when you're craving the need for speed, but will still allow for playful jibbing. Reverse camber between your feet gives you the playfulness while the positive camber outside of the bindings gives tons of pop.

If you're looking for a board to do it all, you should definitely keep the Proto HD in mind.

I think Dolly Parton was singing about these slippers, but felt so silly about writing a song about footwear that she changed it to Jolene.

I bought these for my mom for Christmas and she loves them.
Super soft and cozy. Footbed was stiffer than I had expected, but I imagine that will make them last quite a bit longer than the slippers that just have foam underneath.

Look good and feel good too with these slippers!

This is the best bang for your buck for a helmet hands down.
It's ready to play music out of the box, and combined with Bern's signature "Sink Fit", the Macon 8 Tracks is a clear winner.

You can configure these helmets a few different ways- goggles on the inside/outside, liner on/off, and perhaps even a beanie underneath.
I find that the most comfortable way is to remove the liner, and wear it over your goggles and a beanie.
Unfortunately the 8 Tracks liner can press uncomfortably against my ears after wearing it for a while.

All in all, this helmet does the job excellently and if you like to cruise to your own tunes, the Macon is definitely suggested!

I really wish these fit better...
Fabric on the outside seems incredibly tough and flannel on the inside is soft and warm.
These pants seem really well constructed and would probably last the rest of my life.

Unfortunately, these pants are huge on me! The leg holes are almost twice the size of my legs and the short inseam version still hangs about 2 inches below my feet.
Interestingly enough, the waist sizes on these pants run small...

I really wanted to like these pants... oh well
