Rachael Van Dolah's Bio

While a native to South Carolina and drawn to the coast, warmth, and the sunshine, I have made a change to exploring other places and I am try out mountain life for a bit. At this time I am calling Salt Lake home and enjoying the area around. When the weather is warm, you will find me camping, hiking, biking, and playing Ultimate Frisbee and when winter is back and snow has fallen I will be skiing up at snowbird or trying my hand at some snowboarding on the bunny slope.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have purchased two pairs, one for myself and one as a gift and both fit us well. These guards are light weight, but very durable and I would say they fit true according to the sizing chart. The neoprene sleeve on each pair was a tad on the tight side to start, but stretches out with use. One nice feature that sold me on this style over others was the fact that the exterior hard shell can be removed from the interior neoprene sleeve so you do not need to take off your shoes to shed the extra bulk. When you are ready for your descent and need the extra protection you can pull the hard shell out of your pack and reattach. I have yet to have any negative feedback on this item so I do not have any to share at this time, but I do have concerns about the stitching that others have mentioned in reviews below.

Although this jersey is fairly basic in design, it is great for summer biking. It is lightweight, breathable, and tailored enough in an athletic fit that it is not baggy, but it is not tight. I found the sizing chart to be pretty accurate and I fit perfectly in a Medium at 5?7 and 135 lbs.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Although I have not personally used this item as I have purchased this as a gift to ensure my guys dome piece was well protected for mountain biking, I do have feedback to share. With a 23.5 inch head circumference he fit perfectly in the size range for the Large on the sizing chart and when received, the Large fit him perfectly. The helmet is lightweight, easy to get on, allows plenty of ventilation, and perfect for his needs. He did have two features that he was not sold on at first, but has come to like them. The first was the padding felt a bit too plush to start in the jawline and lower cheek regions, but seems to have packed out a bit by forming to his face with use. The second is the closure system for the helmet strap was a bit of a pain at first, but with a few rides he has gotten the hang of it. Fingers crossed he doesn't go down hard enough to truly test its durability, but it seems to be a very well designed helmet.

These are perfect if you are looking for a light summer weight glove. These gloves are inexpensive, comfy, lightweight, and have a nice grip, but they do not have any padding so you may need to look elsewhere if you are in need of palm pads. I have not had a chance to test out the durability of the gloves for long, but I suspect that they will hold up well with use. Although it did not matter to me, one downside of the glove is the lighter fabrics do get dirty quickly and will not clean up very well. This was not a deal breaker for me, but may be for someone else.

These shorts are perfect for summer biking and I do not have any complaints at this time. They are lightweight, breathable, durable, and comfortable. I am 5?7 and 135 lbs and the small fits perfectly. I would say that the sizing does run on the large side, as I started out with a medium and had to exchange for the smaller size, but the chart should get you fairly close.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

This pump was a little smaller than I was looking for , but I was very impressed by how light and small it was, yet still offered a lot of power. Would be great to take along if you are looking for for a pump that is compact and light weight. It is hard to judge size by a picture, but this pump is 7" long and about 7/8" wide.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Although a huge fan of the Carrot Cake and White Chocolate flavors, honestly all of these bars are quite tasty. I find these more sweet than many brands on the market and pretty gooey if left in the sunshine, but they are a great snack with a high calorie content that are easy to pack and grab when on the go. Would highly recommend if you are not already a fan!
