I have to say I use Oakley Sunglasses exclusively. I have tried others (Native, Smith) and for Sunglasses I find nothing works like Oakley. These glasses are great for most uses. On the water, chilling around town, city rides on the bike, the BBQ, at the pool. For longer rides, backpacking trips, etc, I find they are a bit heavy and there is not enough air that gets in, so they get hot. But then again, if you are looking for glasses for this purpose I recommend another pair of oakley, anything more sporty will do. Also these are durable and the polarized (for me anyways) is a must. Once you see that well, it is hard to go back.
A good pair of boxers, but not really a true merino layer for the under parts. I like this boxer and all of the Saxx that I own. But this isn't going to add any real warm in the winter months. Still it holds the boys where they need to be and is a better choice than cotton or the polyester that I use in the summer. Still for the cost I might look elsewhere.
First of all let me say that I am really loyal for NS boards. They are a great company, they make a great product and I can tell you from personal experience they stand by their boards and the people that ride them. That being said, I picked up this board cause I was wanting to have something a bit more playful, ride some more switch, etc. This board is a true twin, so for that it is awesome. I got good float from this board when I have taken it out on pow days and I have found good stability and dampness on the un-pow days. Depending on your riding style, preferences, I would say this is a good 1 quiver board. I mean you can do everything with this board, not really a jib/rail board, but it would do. As a pipe board or aerials board, is really nice, a solid platform you can stomp huge airs and it is always right there when you need to get on it. If you are dropping bigger gnalier lines, I would say the cobra is a better all around fit. But this a great board, a tighter turn radius and a little more nimble than the Cobra while still keeping the stability. Almost as much float and realistically as much float as most people need. Enjoy.
So these boots were the final choice in a long search for boots. I had an old pair of salomon (from like 97, I've resoled them twice now) and I wanted to replace them with something a bit newer. I actually had another pair of Salomon from BC and I tried and tried but they beat me in the end. I probably had 250 miles on them and after a 3 day trip where my feet looked like bloody stumps again, I finally gave up (thank goodness for BC return policy, BC rules). So then I decided I was gonna find a pair that fit and after trying probably 15 pairs of boots, I settled on these. I am giving them 4 stars just cause they run warm. If you are going to use them in the winter they are great, I have used them snowshoeing and love them. The memory foam works awesome for light insulation. But in the middle of summer they run a bit warm for my liking. Still they are great for what they are made for and are an excellent pair of boots. The sole is pretty stiff, so I use them with my Grivel G10 crampons and they work well on light mtn-ering stuff. Overall a great choice for all stuff except middle of summer backpacking.
I needed a new pair of trail running shoes as I got a new dog and didn't want to wear her out in the 1st 15 months of her life by taking her MTBing. So I figured I reinvent my trail running skills. I tried a lot of different trail runners and settled on these. They are certainly in the traditional vein but they have a very solid platform and lots of support. I also found the traction on these is great. Cushion is average to cushy and I just like the way they perform all the way around
