Local: Season is coming!

Written by JT on . Posted in Local

Sorry it’s been so quiet around here, I have a review or two to post, for Never Summer, and then we’ll be into premier season.  I’ll have reviews coming for 686 outerwear, DC Judge Boots, and more, once we get things rolling.  Last season ended prematurely with an achilles injury, but I’m back and ready to go, so getting into a work out routine, and getting ready for first snowfall.  Stay tuned for some posts from premiers that are up-coming.

Winter is Coming!

“Patiently Waiting”

Thoughts: What a Season, or lack of For me.

Written by JT on . Posted in Thoughts

So this season we’ve had an insane winter here in Colorado.  The season started out well for me, and quickly escalated into chaos.  I guess everyone is due a season with injury, and this year just happened to be mine.  Broken foot, retinal cut, and six weeks of flu, all worked together to just slash my season.  Have no fear though, I haven’t forgotten about the site, nor reviews.  A-Basin still has plenty of snow for me to make up a few turns.  Hope you all had a killer season out there!

Review: 686 Outerwear: Smarty Command Colorblock XXL

Written by JT on . Posted in Reviews, Thoughts

Every season, I think to myself, “what jacket and/or pants should I get this year?”    Sometimes I think I’ll stray, but I always end up coming back to 686, and the Smarty line.  I’ve heard people complain, and I’ve heard people rave about 686.  I’ve heard everything from “their jackets suck” to “their smarty pants are the best.”   For me, it’s about comfortable, technical apparel that actually fits a big guy like myself.  I’ve found that in 686 time, and time again.
