At $150 a piece they are a steal. They swing well. The flexible shaft feels very solid when cranking the pick into cracks but isn't noticeable when waterfall climbing. They are strange when you first look at them as the shaft is only slightly thicker than the pick, but don't let looks deceive you. They are far from flimsy. Overall, a reasonably priced, excellent tool.

I don't own this years model, I picked up last year's recently. However, I can't imagine Arc would change one of their centerfold pieces dramatically. No experience with the Fortius fabric but the Polartec Power Shield in previous models is phenomenal. If you want a breathable, active shell this is it. Pricey, but great

Just got this thing today. So, eager as I was, I took it outside to test it out and just get an overall feel. The bottom seem of the sack immediately blew out when stress was put on it. Additionally, the sack is much shorter than advertised, my head and toes were touching the walls and I'm only 6'1". Overall I was extremely disappointed. I need to figure out some kind of return. Mountain Hardwear definitely let me down.
