I'm a Utah native who loves all she has to offer. I love pretty much anything outdoors. Growing up with a dad who is a 20+ year scout master you spend more than the average child's time hiking and camping. I taught myself to ski at 12 and got into climbing pretty heavily at 20. At 27 I'm no "expert", but I can get down anything on the mountain and on site more 5.10's then not.
I do like these as far as headphones go. I however have to trade them for a new pair every 3 months or so. Every single pair Skull Candy headphones I have owned has developed a short in the jack. I guess it could be user error. Either way; thank god for BC?s return policy!
I picked these up for the Gore-Tex waterproof membrane expecting to only be able to wear them when there was snow on the ground. I was pretty surprise when my feet weren?t soaked in sweat after a good day on snowshoes. I ended up taking them out a couple times in the spring and summer with similarly surprising results. Even with the warm weather these boots kept my feet well vented and feeling good.
The suit is just a wetsuit, fits pretty true to size. The X-Zip is pretty cool, and super comfy, however you need a 2 foot zipper pull just to reach it when it is hanging on your back, which you totally don't have...
