everything they say is true. this jacket packs down super well. its lightweight and super warm. it will get wet (not waterproof) but it also drys super quickly. all in all it is just awesome!
had the patagonia nano puff before this and it was also all of the above. the marmot seems to control temp better. the nano puff always kept me warm but almost too warm sometimes (primaloft vs. down?). i find myself wearing this one and forgetting that i'm wearing it. i also find that the marmot is more of a fitted cut. the patagonia seemed a bit boxier and this seems slimmer.
i got these as a christmas present for my mom. then the winter of 2013/14 hit the east coast and she's been living in them since. she says they keep her feet warm and dry. they run a bit large but that works with thick winter socks. she hasn't had any complaints but she's not working in them (i saw some other constant use complaints). they are basically a snow boot for her.
I use this rack with thule bars. It's super easy to attach and detach. they literally came out of the box and were on my roof in a few minutes. i haven't had any problems with it in the snow or cold. the locks work well (something that i recommend getting). it holds four boards no problem. does what it says and does it well!
i bought the apple tortoise brown as a present for my girlfriend. she loves them!! she was hesitant to spend the money sunglasses. she's always bought cheap sunglasses. having bought a pair for myself, i knew they were worth the money. as soon as you wear these, you know where the money is going. the optics are amazing with little or no distortion and they're very stylish. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
i use them with the variant helmet and they really do integrate well. they have a good seal and great optics. mine came with the blue sensor (dark days) and the red sol-x (sunny days). i think they all come with some choice similar to that. i find it easy to swap out lenses and that once in they actually keep out snow (rare in both cases). definitely the best googles i've ever owned.
but watch the sizing. i was going to buy the i/ox (larger version) until i tried them on. they gapped around my nose which would have caused problems. they also make an i/os (small) so go try them on.
let me start by saying "support america and yourself". one of last board companies that is still making here. if they are producing abroad for 1/3 of the price and still overcharging you then screw them.
past that, this board is the best i've ever ridden. it's light and responsive. i love the new rocker/camber combo they've been using. it's a mid wide that i can still put my size 12's on and ride hard (no toe drag but also not a heavy beast like the wides used to be). it's got great float and has let me shorten my board length a few cm's from what i used to ride.
ONE LAST POINT-MAGNE TRACTION!! the design is sick and really holds all the time. i used to ride the east coast which is nothing but ice. everyone out there should be riding libtech or gnu. now i'm riding here in utah and there isn't as much ice obviously but it's still good to have.
I was hesitant to spend the money on these sunglasses. i've always bought mid range (not super cheap but not high end either). as soon as you wear these, you know where the money is going. the optics are amazing with little or no distortion. i use them mostly for volleyball and outdoor work. i've had them smashed off my face several times in volleyball games and they've always held up (the other ones didn't). i've had them for over a year now and they still fit perfectly. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
let's face it, nixon has basically made watches cool again. if you don't want your grandpa's seiko, this is where you go. they put together a great mix of form and function. their designs are cool (this being one of my favorites) and build them to withstand daily life. i wasn't sure about the silicon band but now i've gotten used to it and it's no problem. very stylish watch that always gets noticed!!
