This is a fantastic cold weather jacket with excellent visibility in early morning, early evening, and generally low light situations. It's super warm (so you'll have to plan accordingly) and repels moisture (light rain and mist) reasonably. It's comfortable and while breathable, it doesn't stink up badly. It's my go-to during the winter.

The fit and function of these shorts were great for me. But between this pair and others in my closet, these were worn maybe 12 times for rides of under one hour in duration on average. 6-7 rides in, the inner short began to fall apart at the seams around the pads. I was going to keep the shorts anyway but after my last ride, I noticed that the seams at the adjustable waist band velcro was also failing. For a medium sized wearer who have not been tossed off his bike, this type of degradation points to a quality problem in my books.

They look pretty solid but I couldn't get past the fit so never even tried them on the trails. I measured up as a small on the size chart but the guards never felt secure enough to stand up to pedaling. For the regular price I paid for this, I would still opt of G-form for XC/Trail or POC/661 Rage for Trail/All Mountain. The Fox Launch was super comfortable and looked like it could take a beating but was a little too bulky for me.

These fit just as expected. At first, I wasn't sold on the non-velcro cuffs but after some time, I've come to like these much better. It's a thin pair of gloves but I like that I feel more of the handlebars. Though they are full-fingered, they feel just fine for summer riding. I've washed them several times and they come out just like new.

I purchased these for a 1x10 setup. My full-suspension came with a SRAM XO setup and I've read/experienced how crisply and cleanly SRAM's shift. After a month with the XTR's, these come out on top for me. They are just as crisp and precise. I like the feedback, engagement, and ergonomics. I've not tried the XX's or XX1's but so far, these are my #1 pick.

I used this for a 1x10 Shimano crank/cassette/derailleur set-up. Sizing was pretty straight forward and the chain has been working well through the dry stuff as well as wet and muddy. The crank is a wide-narrow type (Wolf Tooth) and this has not dropped nor have I had any shifting issues.

It's a basic yet high-functioning shirt. The moisture wicking properties work well. I've not had any stink issues. I purchased the white color for warm weather riding and made the mistake of riding in rain. Mud splattered everywhere and though I washed immediately, I was not able to get all dirt stains out. Oh well, this will be my rainy day riding shirt now. Sizing is larger than usual. I typically wear mediums but size small fits me loosely. Not too big, but not slim fitting either.
