Big Agnes Shovelhead Hooded Down Jacket

Published by under Gear,Reviews

From mid-March onward I used this jacket a ton. I took it to Iceland and I lived in it while getting lines done for my next book. I love this jacket and want to share with you the reasons why. First off, I’ll start with what a jacket like this is all about, warmth. There […]

2014-15 Backcountry Access Stash 40 Pack

Published by under Gear,Reviews

2014-15 Backcountry Access Stash 40 Pack This spring I spent most of my time in the hills with the BCA Stash 40. I carry around a lot of gear when I ski lines for writing. This spring was all about just that. I use a Nikon D-7000 for shooting lines and usually have a selection […]

Review of Gordini Wragell 3 Finger Glove W/ Buffalo Leather

Published by under Gear,Reviews

So gloves are always an issue for me. For a while there I couldn’t get any pair to last more than a season. They just didn’t last going up against the abuse that backcountry skiing could dish out. Warmth is also an issue. Finding a tough pair of gloves that can stand up to the […]

Ryders Eyewear All Plank Goggles Review

Published by under Gear,Reviews

So I thought I’d do this review a little differently than the way I normally do these reviews. This review will be more like a diary of thoughts written over the remainder of the season from early February till the late spring. However if I’m using these in spring then I’m pretty sure I made […]

Ski Logik Yeti 183 Ski Review

Published by under Gear,Reviews

So the final version of the Yeti arrived at my door in September. SOOO stoked for this one. When I had gotten done skiing Corno Grande in Italy I was super jazzed on my Pitons and just the day in general. Nothing like a solo in a strange land on a rowdy line to put […]

Black Diamond Guide Glove

Published by under Gear,Reviews

These gloves rock. They remind me of those old Reusch gloves that were so bomber. However these gloves have some features that take it to the next level. The feature I love the most is the soft fabric on the thumb perfect for nose wipes in the cold. They also have a removable liner for spring […]

Scarpa Maestrale RS Ski Boot Review

Published by under Gear,Reviews

Well let’s just start this review off with the fact that I really like these boots. They ski amazingly well and can drive the 122mm underfoot Bomb Squad from Ski Logik that I’ve been skiing on harder lines. These boots have a very consistent flex pattern that doesn’t buckle under the pressure of turning such […]

Ski Logik Bombsquad 183

Published by under Gear,Reviews

Ski Logik Bombsquad 183 Review At the end of last season I got a pair of these skis. I mounted them .5cm back of boot center with Marker Tour bindings. I don’t really jump off a lot of stuff anymore so the Tour binding seemed like the way to go. I skied them a few […]
