The "Grass" is the color I have. It's definitley not as flashy as that Acid/Chartreuse/Neon Green, that's for sure. But it's a neat textured material, which is kinda cool. Also, under $100 on those is a killer deal.
According to that chart size small is what you described. It looks like I'm going to need a small. That does look neat, but I'm looking for something brighter. I already have a pair of burton cargos that are dark green with small black squares on it so I want a brighter color.

I went ahead and ordered these in size small green686 Smarty Original Cargo 3-In-1 Pant - Men's | Backcountry.com

I got my jacket the other day and I am impressed. It is noticeably lighter then my burton poacher jacket (although its a size bigger). It fits me a lot nicer than my poacher jacket does, it was just to big. If anyone's interested in buying a jacket I will probably list it on here soon. It's a burton poacher jacket size M khaki color if anyone's interested. I have a pair of boots and maybe some other stuff to put up to.

Alright, I'll do that. You mean the lime green ones I just ordered right? Forgot to meantion, backcountry has free 2 day shipping right now to, so that was cool to pair that with 20% off the pants.

Unless you're already in super good shape I think I would steer clear of Insanity, even P90X in favor of something a little less "intense". The thing about HIIT and other workouts like those is they put a tremendous amount of stress on your joints and soft tissue if you haven't worked your way up to that level of intensity, you're putting yourself at greater risk of injury.

They've got some lower intensity stuff, and cardio-focused workouts that won't stress you as hard and would be a good warm-up for the pre-season, they'd still get you in better shape, etc.

Right on. Just be careful. My problem when it comes to things like this (and your mileage may vary) is that I am a recovering jock; high school football & track, rec league b-ball, collegiate rugby, so even though I'm horribly out of shape compared to when I was 21 and could bench press like 330 pounds (god I sound like a jock just saying that!!!), there is still a lot of latent strength underneath my beer-chiseled abs. It is super easy for me to "overdo" it when the adrenaline kicks in. I haven't been to a gym in over 18 months but I bet I could still put up 225 a few times on the bench. I'd be sore for a fuckin' week afterwards, but I still *can*, and that's what gets me in trouble when I try any of that high-intensity stuff. I don't know when to quit, or I do know when I just refuse to.
