    Leo is #1
    I’ve purchased gear for myself and my family from Leo a number of times now and it is always an EXCEPTIONAL experience. Leo is always professional, but also extremely approachable…as if I’m shopping with my super knowledgeable friend. They were extremely patient with me as I took a couple of months with my last curation. You really cannot go wrong working with Leo. Truly an elevated and easy experience. Thanks, Leo!

    Working with Leo was a joy!
    Leo really got what I was looking for. They nailed it when coming up with the type of skis I was looking for. I'm kind of an all-around skier, but I'm 52 and don't ski as aggressively as I used to due to knee surgery. But I still want to be able to ski all terrain and try things out. Leo recommended skis that will be lighter than what I have (to not add more stress to my body...aging sucks!), but that they said perform really well and are intuitive to different types of terrain. We went through several options, but Leo's first pick is what I went with. They also recommended some bindings that would work well for me. I really enjoyed talking with and working with Leo and highly recommend them for anyone who is looking for a knowledgable ski expert! I can't wait to receive my new skis and bindings...bring on the snow! I need to try them out! Thanks Leo!

    Best shopping experience!!
    Leo helped me through the steps of grabbing my pivot 12 bindings. Leo even gave me a great deal on them that I appreciate very much. He was very patient with me even though I was probably hard to work with… so excited to rip down the mountain this season on my new gear!!!

    It was my first time buying skis after years of renting and I was a little overwhelmed at the multitude of options. Leo made it super easy and broke the information down into digestible bites so I felt comfortable in my purchase! Super excited to try my new gear out!

    Helped us noobs feel confident
    My wife is new to skiing and I'm a snowboarder so we don't really know where to start with buying skis. She's used rentals before so she knows what's working and what isn't. Leo cut through the myriad of options to give us just what we need and at an excellent price! We feel a lot more confident in our purchase process now. Thanks!

    Knowledgable, helpful, and personable!
    Leo and all of my experience on Curated has helped me so much! I began with googling websites for skis and found Curated not knowing what to expect. After the quick quiz for ski preferences, I was matched with Leo as my Curated expert and I am so glad he was my expert! Leo took the time to research multiple brands of ladies' All Mountain skis + bindings that he believed would be a good fit for me and recorded an informative and lively video going over it all, with some fun anecdotes too. It was novel and interesting for me to learn more about the ski specs. A lot has changed in the time since I have owned my very old, original pair of skis, so it was great to have Leo's help and expert opinion. Leo helped me work out which bindings would work and look best with the skis I chose. Leo has also been great about following up with shipping and delivery updates, and he also hooked me up with some generous store credits that I was able to put towards a new pair of goggles as well. One of my favorite parts about this experience was how easy and effective Leo made it for me to select my gear. I live several hours away from the nearest ski areas and do not have a lot of access to stores that sell skis or other gear. So I loved having Leo as my expert and using Curated's features to help me figure out the type and size of skis that would be best for me. I cannot wait to try everything out next ski season during vacation time! I highly recommend Leo as a Curated expert to anyone who wants to purchase winter sports gear! Thanks a lot!
