Titan Mitt

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Three glove sets in one. Amazingly well-designed, durable, waterproof, breathable, modular active-wear hand protection system for year-round use for cool to bitter cold, with wind, rain or snow. Obvious careful selection of materials for functionality, agility and durability. Trim functional cut for action, and well stitched. Near perfection for my uses. A complete steal at the list price! Agree with the praise by others on source site, where I got them. I've spent far more in the past, for far… Full review

Crossfire Glove

rated 4 of 5 stars Nice lightweight glove for warm skiing or cool weather biking. This is a nice fitting light glove. I got the large, the size I normally wear in other glove brands and it fits right. It is fairly windproof and sheds light snow well. It has a nice sticky palm. The glove works well for bike riding and warm skiing. It has a fairly good dexterity. The description of 150g of fleece on the inside seems pretty inaccurate it has a very very light lining inside. All in all a good glove for what it is. Full review

Frontier 36L

rated 5 of 5 stars I bought a full black Axis backpack in August. I've been pretty rough with it, would clean it off a little bit and then it looks perfectly fine. It's very durable and reliable and compact, which all are nice. Full review

Pro II

rated 4 of 5 stars Heavy, bigger, and seemingly more cumbersome after coming from a light summer hiking pack. This pack proved me wrong. Its construction in solid and had ties for skis or boards for hitting the backcountry. The outer pouch has multiple organizing features for the wet stuff, and then the pouch on the very back gives room for whatever needs to stay dry while sharing the space for the bladder. When it comes to weight I've had this thing loaded down with books for school close to twenty pounds and have… Full review
