It is a bit of a departure from our earlier gear reviews in that this in an overview of what we believe to be the best offerings from all of the manufacturers for any given temperature range. We will not be performing our usual, lengthy, painstaking analysis and comparison of several different products, presenting all of the pluses and minuses. Rather, we will be doing all the behind-the-scenes work of that same lengthy, painstaking analysis, but simply presenting you the loyal reader with the best outfit for a 35-to-45-degree rollerski, for example. This Test Lets dive right in. To kick things off, weve put together the BiS outfit for the dreaded 35-45 degree run or rollerski (or as Zach Caldwell likes to call them, whap sticks). Now, no bitching about this first outfit recommendation being too late in the year, as I recently returned from the USA Nordic Sports and USSA meetings in Park City and on the few days I did manage to squeeze in a workout (despite Billy Demongs long, rambling PowerPoints), 35-degree rain was the condition that I encountered almost every day. If you know anything about Billy Demong, you should know three things: he has an Olympic gold medal, if you train with him on whap sticks, there is a very good chance you may die, and he is trying to kill me. Following on the theme of that last point, Billy managed to shame me into a rainy whap-stick roll, (FBD shaming is serious problem facing society today, but thats a story for another day), so trust me when I tell you that these outfits were tested in some of the crappiest conditions known to man.

The credits roll to this heroic opening sequence. A score infused with Dano's own a cappella riffing assumes orchestral dimensions. The film opens Friday at both the Cedar Lee in Cleveland and the Nightlight Cinema in Akron. Undoubtedly not for everybody, Swiss Army Manis nonetheless a visual delight and a weirdly moving emotional journey. Dano, Radcliffe and directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Schienert (working under the tag-team moniker "Daniels" in their first feature) treat the absurdist material with not only seriousness but affection, and they've managed to make you feel deep feelings for a friendship between a man and a corpse it is, perhaps, the logical next step in a progression that Cast Away initiated, with Tom Hanks and a volleyball as well as for the corpse itself ("Manny") brought to pale and herky-jerky life by Radcliffe. How fully Manny's existence is indebted to Hank's starvation-induced hallucinating remains unclear until the final minutes of the film, but the friendship is portrayed as a door that swings both ways. Manny, a literal "multi-purpose guy" becomes Hank's survival toolshed as they try to make their way back to civilization. He provides water for drinking, jet propulsion from the rear for water travel and from the mouth for various projectile necessities. He's also a source for fire-starting and ramshackle weaponry, for a host of campsite projects and emergencies, via assorted body parts and functions.
