Familiarity: I've used it several times

I couldn't decide between the Recon, Resistance, and Revelation jackets, so I went with one of each. This piece is very similar to the Recon but adds a little warmth with the Windstopper Softshell material. Fully seam sealed and basically waterproof (but Gore wont let them say this) its a prefect foul weather piece for the weather of BC and the pacific NW.

Fairly packable and fits true to size. Again, order up if you want to use it as an everyday piece and not just for riding.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is absolutely my favorite cycling piece I own. Super light, extremely breathable, "waterproof" and fits in jersey pocket. The attention to detail is unrivaled- wrist vents, ultra thin seam tap on windstopper, and large exhaust ports. While this is considered more of a wind jacket, it must rain a bit in Squammish where these are designed. With a little bit Arc'Teryx and and little bit Assos in the bloodline, you won't be disappointed- I PROMISE.

If you're looking for some thing slightly warmer and more waterproof, the 7Mesh Recon is for you.

Fit- average. Order a size large and this can be your everything outdoors piece (hike, climb, backpacking)

7MESH, based out of Squammish BC, hosts more than one of my favorite trails. Leave it to the guys with the best riding in the word to make the best shorts I've ever ridden. Now the town also makes the best cycling clothing too. From the trails to the bars, these shorts should be your top choice.

Fit: True to size

I picked these up for trail running on Icy trails and they're amazing. 9 studs and deep tread don't allow any slipping even on the iciest trail. Be careful walking on rock, tile, wood, or any other surface you don't want destroyed. It put some major gouges in granite when standing around on a rock. This is defintely an outside only shoe and the studs are similar to what you find it ice/snow car tires that are made for 1000s of miles on snow/pavement. The studs should last long past the life of the shoes.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Sure, they're spendy but if your looking for the nicest of the nice, all weather short, this is it. This makes a great all around short but would excel it damper, we climates because of the waterproofing.

Kitsbow was started as a top level MTB brand because their was no top end products available. Production is out of the former ArcTeryx factory in Vancouver BC and you can see some serious resemblance including the attention to detail.

First ride impressions

Fast. Very fast. Climbs much quicker than I would expect but I wish it would carve the corners just a bit better- like the Mach 6 or Nomad. All around techy trailbike? Absolutely. Full on gravity machine? If you're willing to work it. This bike definitely put Ibis in the class with the other superbikes such as the Nomad, SB6c, and Mach 6.
