I went ahead and bought the Nomad pack based on all of the reviews. I haven't seen that many reviews for the Zealot as of yet. And the Dakine stuff always looks cool.

Has anyone been able to compare the Nomad to the Osprey Zealot 16 or Raptor 14?
These are pretty damn great. I much prefer them to Dakine's Exodus gloves. They feel better and have an overall better fit.
Pics show Race Face bars, not Easton as mentioned in the specs.
Great jacket that doesn't look like a cycling jacket. It's made of a crazy rubbery stretchy material that works awesome. It's thin like a regular windbreaker but it's not made of the same type of material.
I had these installed on my 29er for a while but ended up installing them on my commuter. Like others have said, they are ok for a little while on a mtn bike but I feel like sometimes you need a traditional grip that you can wrap your fingers around. I think it really depends on your riding style and the trails that you choose.
If you're on the fence about these just go for it. They feel amazing, much better than my Defeet Kneekers although they are really toasty too. These go on and off really easily and they have little rubber things to keep them in place.
Love these things. I own the 10" and 12" versions. The material is really rugged but light. I also love the velcro in the waist. Most importantly, you can leave the chamois out and use them as regular shorts in the summer.
I typically wear a 33 but had to go with a 34 with these shorts. They have velcro around the waist so you can customize the fit, so it worked out good. The shorts are cool and casual, so you can wear them in the summer without the chamois.
Very comfy and fit excellent. I like the long profile and they look cool too. They stay tight and cozy the entire ride and through the rest of the day as well.
They work great. I love the velcro on the back and they go on and off easily. These are a no-brainer if you are hitting the trails when the weather falls under 45 degrees.
