Purchased off WM for a great price. This is the first long board I've owned, previously only standard boards, but I've scooted around on others (mostly Sector 9s) and I'm a big fan of the Evolution. Since it's a relatively short LB, there isn't any sagging in the middle which I prefer. After loosening the wheels and trucks a bit, I was crusing all over the crud found on NOVA roads with ease. Although I got the board for a great deal, I would still pay $180 for this board. Thanks Whiskey.
Great sunglasses, they will fit small- to medium-sized heads, mine being more of the latter. I paid about $40 including 2-day shipping on SAC but I would spend up to $90 for Hudsons. These replaced my Electric Valence glasses for jogging because the rubber nose pad keeps them from moving around and they look better. My pair did come with a piece of finish hanging off it but I decided to keep them, that's how much I like them.
Purchased this pack off Whiskeymilitia.com for only ~$19 which is a great deal for any laptop pack. I purchased the military color and it looks nice, the other reviews are correct in saying, "a nice profile". There's plenty of space on the inside and enough compartments for all kinds of stuff. I especially like the fleece lined zipper pocket in the main compartment; it can fit much more than just a cell phone so it makes a nice stash pocket for valuables. My 17-inch HP laptop fits nicely in the compartment even with the extra inch on the bottom of my laptop from the 12-cell battery. My only issue is there isn't much of a place to store pens and pencils; the pack does have interior pockets for this purpose but they're way too deep so I find myself digging around in there to grab what I need. Also, I'd advise whoever purchases this to take it easy on the zippers, some of them don't feel very sturdy but I haven't had any problems yet. Certainly a nice upgrade from an ugly, clumsy Targus laptop backpack I first used when I got to college. The only thing I liked about the Targus more is it had two insulated beverage pockets (Gravis has two smaller, uninsulated ones) and one insulated compartment that could fit an entire lunch; all these extra features would probably explain why the Targus is twice as big and ugly than my new Gravis. Oh, I should also mention your laptop will likey be in pieces if you take a spill while riding a skateboard or bike. In fact, there really isn't any padding at all so I wouldn't recommmend this for those who plan on eating sh*t on their way to class while wearing this pack.
Here's that picture I was talking about in the review, I'm not sure if it uploaded correctly earlier
So I've never owned a pair of sunglasses before because I'm not a sunglasses kinda guy but I took a shot with these (From SAC, black/grey non-polarized, only about $40 including shipping). Being a noob with sunglasses, I don't really know my face size but I'll guess medium, maybe medium/small (5'9 150 lbs) and it's a good fit. While the glasses are on, there's no slipping even when bending over which is surprising because there are no nose-/temple-grips. When you have them on top of your head (bro-status, haha), they'll move around a little but if you have a bigger head then you'll be alright. As for the style, the lenses are pretty big considering my face size but the square frame makes it look nice. Not only do the lenses provide excellent cover, I found the wide ear pieces (whatever it's called, arm? The other end of the hinge after the lenses) conveniently block out the sun from the periphery too; it's not like you're always looking in the direction of the sun, y'know? So I like the look and the function, I get compliments from friends and ladies alike. Durability-wise, I've had these things for over a year and only a few minor scratches; they still look great. In fact, the only reason why the scratches are there is because I'm pretty careless with these. I lost the pouch for them so I just leave them wherever; I'll throw them in my backpack (it has a shitty, likely abrasive sunglasses pocket) or hang one of the earpieces from my front pocket when the sun's not out. Loved these glasses so much I started getting other pairs; now I have a pair of Oakley M-frames (so ugly you can only wear them for physical activity, haha) and a pair of classic Ray-Ban aviators. Price aside, I would choose these Smith's over my other pairs any day. Attached is a pic I took with them to give you all a better idea.
Edit: And I should mention while my Ray-Ban aviators leave painful and obvious marks from the nose piece, these Smith haven't hurt me one bit nor left any mark even when wearing them for hours straight.
