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

Compared to other hip-length Arc'teryx tops, this Motus is considerably shorter. Granted, I'm 5'11", but this shirt is several inches too short (sleeves too), whereas Arc'teryx hip-length (Phasic SL) is usually a great length for me with a little sleeve length to spare.

There are so many choices when it comes to energy products. I am not very familiar with them. Does anyone have advice as to what type would be most suited for the following situation? I would like something for when I'm doing a lot of running/crawling with my basic gear on for the Army - not full battle rattle, but about 50 lbs added to me. I don't want caffeine highs. My body doesn't like caffeine much, and I need to be able to have a steady hand still. I'm an expert marksman and my unit still needs to utilize me as such when training or in theater. Thank you in advance for any advice you offer.

This shell is so lightweight, breathable, and waterproof. This is my first Mammut product, and boy am I glad I tried them out. The fit is so extremely great. It's definitely shaped for a woman. It shows off my figure, the sleeves are long enough (I'm 5'11") and the body is the length I wanted for a rain jacket (not too long). You can tell that this jacket is pure quality. The materials are very comfortable. Most of it feels like a soft shell. The other material on the arms is thinner, which I like so that the jacket doesn't feel too heavy when used for rain.

These winter ones are as great as all of the other Superfeet insoles. The fleecy top is nice for this cold weather version, and the foil has held up well even though Superfeet warns about its durability. The way Superfeet insoles are firm ends up feeling so much better and giving you more support than more cushioned insoles. The high arch hits further back than most insoles, which supports my arch better than any other I've tried. They keep you from over-pronating, although I've never had a tendency to, myself. I tend to be more supinated if anything, but the deep heel cup in Superfeet insoles keep my ankle straight. Superfeet is the only way to go. Go to their website to see which of their insoles you should get.

I use these Greens for my military boots, seeing as how Green is for maximum shock absorption.

I have used Superfeet Greens for my military boots, and I loved them so much that I figured I'd get these orange ones for some of my less-impact-intense footwear.

I prefer the ultra-light version, but these are still nice and light. I've been a Thorlos fan for a long time, but I must admit, I love the feel and performance of these socks while running or just going about my day. They conform to your foot quite well, and they don't make your feet hot. The fabric is comfortable, but sometimes the excess material alongside the short stripes on top of the sock push into my skin to the point where I notice it. I haven't had them very long, so I hope they last.

I am 5'11" and have a pretty solid, athletic build from the Army. It's tough to find winter clothing that doesn't make me look the size of a man or have sleeves too short. This jacket is well-fitted to my figure, allowing for a slender, curvy outline. The length of the torso and sleeves are adequate for me, as well.

I've had this jacket for over six months, and it's been holding up perfectly. The quality of the materials and design feels like a $300 jacket. I haven't had a problems with waterproofness or breathability. I got the one called Black Dot Pin, but it isn't actually black; it has a dark purple base, and the lighter accents are a light lavender.
