i ride up and down, occasional lift access and shuttle runs, and switching from flats was about as easy as i think it can get with these, I recommend the cleats that allow the 3 release methods (SH56 cleats). Going clipless will definitely take some getting used to but these have been great, easy to get in and out, durable pedals with no issues with debris or anything else. The hex on the outside makes installation easier (regular wrenches are too fat, so this allows you to install without a dedicated pedal removal wrench)

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I didn't even bother trying the sh51, coming from flat pedals to clipless I really wanted it to be as easy as possible to unclip and bail out...

I've ridden them a handful of times and have had no issues, the three release methods work well, debris has not been an issue in rain, mud, sand, or anything else. going clipless definitely takes some getting used to, but i think these cleats are a cheap way to make sure you have all the options possible to unclip

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

This is a really good glove, the shells themselves are wearable in warmer (20+) and they're very soft on the inside, and dexterous. The outer material seems absurdly durable, very waterproof, and the long gauntlets go right over the cuff and the pull cord seals nicely.

The liners are nice, but a little floppy, a little easily pulled off when the shells get pulled off, and honestly not warm enough for the real cold. I will be getting some tighter, higher loft liners. These are fine, but nothing to write home about.

Additionallly these gloves can be found cheaper on Ebay.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

PROS: Materials are excellent, warm, and waterproof

CONS: The liner and shell have hugely thick fingers, it made for a very awkward and unwieldy feel trying to use these with or without the liner.

there are some great things about this glove, i just expected more from a really expensive glove from a great company

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Pros: Warm, waterproof, easy to use and quality sealing cuffs. Arcteryx always uses great materials and makes quality stuff

Con: really bulky throughout the hand, I bet some of this insulation would pack down with use, but not enough for me

Also: fingers seemed short and stubby, the hand fit with room to spare and my fingers found the end of the glove, the webbing between my thumb and forefinger was pronounced in the glove as well. This is not something I've experienced with gloves before, just something to consider for your fit.
