I moved to Utah to follow my dream of living near the best mountains in the US. I spend as much time outdoors as I can skiing, skating, surfing and camping. I also enjoy traveling and exploring new places around the globe.
I just got a black pair of these and I really like going back to the flat lense. I used spherical lenses forever and feel as though the flat is just as clear but closer to the eyes making the field of view better. Check out the video below for the low down on these sick goggles!
This beacon is a great purchase for someone just starting to get into the backcountry. It is very easy to use, although you must practice and practice more so that you are ready to go in the event of a slide. The digital read out and arrow provide quick direction to burials. With 2 antennas, it is efficient but for multiple burials, 3 antennas will be more effective.
This is one of the most durable and waterproof jackets I have owned. The fabric is very abrasion resistant and I used this in wet Washington building and hiking jumps and never got wet. The vents allow for great breathability and the fit is a bit relaxed which is great for layering.
These pants are just what I wanted. A nice, relaxed fit. Not too tight, not too baggy. The stretch fabric is super soft and allows for good movement when skating. I would recommend them to everyone, runs true to size.
I wore this watch surfing everyday for a month straight and have had no issues with it. The tide function is very useful for surfing and you will have all the locals in the lineup asking you for the time. The chrono/wave function is also super useful as you can track how long you have been waiting for a wave and how many you have caught in a session.
These shorts have great stretch and dry super fast. Great for swimming and wearing around town, however I did have a similar problem to Vinny below, with the grommets ripping the shorts. The material is great however, and will prevent that dreaded board rash.
This is by far the most effective shovel i have used. The blade is big enough to move snow fast and is great for building jumps in the backcountry. The saw blade is plenty strong to use for cutting down branches to make shelter or clear a path. Super light weight without the saw in the handle. I would reccomend this for anyone who gets in the backcountry for saftey as well as building!
These gloves are great. Got them as a gift for my lady friend and she loves em. Not only can she text while keeping her hands warm, but they look sweet as well. Just a heads up, if you have large hands these wont work as they are rather small.
