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

I love these shoes! They fit like a glove and feel like it too. I had to modify the laces, for some reason the speed tie laces are always way long. They keep my feet dry and they have excellent traction. Just get a pair and you will understand.

Repost- These shoes are starting to come apart and they shouldn't be for the price. Talked to the girl up front at the retail store and they said their return guarantee doesn't cover it... Backcountry.com is going down hill

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

Needed to get a new jacket for my daughter and this one caught her eye. I tend to geek out on any outdoor gear purchase and this was no exception. I narrowed it down to this one because of the insulation, shell and price. I think that Columbia makes a good product and the price was right for a kid who will probably only get a season out of it.

I own a bunch of beanies for variety. But since i have purchased this one I don't wear the others nearly as often. I love this beanie because it is light and comfy. I like have a beanie that doesn't cook you if you pop inside for a bit. It is now my favorite.

I bought this back for my bro in law and we have hauled it down multiple canyons. It is still in good shape after 6 or 7 slots but it definitely has abrasion wounds all over from the coarse sandstone slots of Utah. He says the fit is great," it can holds a surprising amount of gear and it looks sweet in orange."

I bought these to mount along side of my other Yakima rack on a Tahoe. I like this rack because of the swing arm bracket that allows you to mount it a little higher than the other rack. I can fit three pairs of fatty skis in this rack or 2 snow boards. So with the combination of the other rack I can carry enough skis/boards as I have seats.
Not the most durable design but for the price I wont complain

The soles were to soft for the trail and the back of the shoe lacked support. I would not recommend these to someone looking for a water shoe but that is my opinion. They would be an ok around town lounge shoe but I try to spend my money on shoes that can do well in and out of the city. I was a little disappointed in the quality

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large

Let me start by saying that these are great shoes...but they didn't work for me. I tried to start off slowly but I found the shoes to uncomfortable for me to go more that a few miles for the first month. I wanted to be cool kid and be included in the new barefoot/minimalist running cult, but I guess that my feet were to weak. I also didn't enjoy the smaller and softer strides. I am a puddle splasher what can I say

These bibs are thin, light and durable. I have owned these for a season now and they are my go to bib for most days. I like to layer and that is why I prefer these shells. They have absolutely no insulation, pretty much gore tex saran wrap for your lower half. I have climbed a few times in them but would probably still prefer my soft shell for ice.
The built in gaters are weak and should have been made with a little more quality for Arc'teryx. The vents are ok but i still prefer my old Patagonia Patrol pant vents that came with mesh inside the vent.
I would recommend these to someone who wants a high quality shell bib.
