Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

In case you thought fairings were just for looks, they aren't. It's amazing how much of a difference it makes. Put one on my old Acura TL and I've got no complaints. Mounted to round crossbars. I ran into trouble trying to figure out what size to get b/c when I went to Yakima's site to determine, they don't really tell you. So give Yakima's customer service a call, or chat with the good folks at Backcountry, to help you determine proper sizing.

Bought this as a bike helmet for my four year old son. He loves it. It fits well and is lightweight. There are three sets of removable foam strips which allows a lot of versatility in sizing it right. Compared this to the POC Receptor and the POC was quite a bit heavier. Thrilled with yet another great Giro product.

I've been trying to find the right MTB jersey for a long time now and couldn't find a viable option. Either it didn't fit well, I didn't like the material, or it didn't have the functionality. I really like this jersey. It's lightweight and fits great. I like having the two rear pockets (though I wouldn't put a phone or anything very heavy in it as it pulls the shirt down pretty easy) for GU or keys. I'm 5'11", 175 lbs and the medium fit great.

I really wanted to like this jersey. It fit well and I liked the functionality of the multiple pockets. If you were to wear an undershirt under this jersey, it would be great. My only gripe was that the seam of the back pocket felt weird on my back and I couldn't get past that. Ended up going with another Zoic option - the Armada - instead.

Was trying to decide between this and the Viper 7. Went with the 10 - it's only an ounce heavier and feels like it has more cargo space. The pack has straps on the side that expand the main pouch which allows for more gear (a feature the 7 doesn't have). The front mesh-like pouch is also durable and gives enough stretch to fit small items you need and I think it's more versatile than the stretchy criss-cross webbing on the front of the 7. This pack is perfect for mountain biking or day hiking. Huge fan.

This is a fantastic, lightweight pack. I like the bungee construction on the outside. It's perfect for dayhiking or mountain biking. I was trying to decide between this and the Viper 10. I ended up going with the Viper 10. It is only 1 oz. heavier and has expandable straps on the side so you can fit a bit more in it. I took it hiking the other morning and was able to throw a lightweight vest and wind shirt inside just fine. Still had room for phone and snacks in the small pouch and my microspikes in the outer stretch pouch. This is no dig on the Viper 7...I think it's a great pack. Just felt that for one more ounce, the 10 offered more versatility.
