Have around 5 days on these and so far they've been great. I had them put on some new Sir Francis Bacons and they've treated me well in every circumstance. Never a pre-release and they've performed as expected on some really wicked wipe-outs. They're light but feel very sturdy and they look good too (which doesn't really matter to me but it's a small bonus feature).

I usually love BC.com stuff and have a lot of it, but this disappointed me. I bought it because I wanted a base layer with thumb holes.

Con: The thumb holes are positioned poorly so the sleeve must rotate to fit the thumbs. Just look at the picture, they line up more perfectly with my ring finger or pinky. In addition, the thumb hole was so small I couldn't get my last big knuckle through it making it uncomfortable and awkward. It was a little itchy since it was wool, but not too bad.

Pro: It did fit well which is why it got 2 stars instead one. I'm 6'4" 220lbs, pretty athletic build and it fit perfectly, room to move but close to the body.

I have the BC.com wool hooded jacket that you refer to and it appears from the pictures that this is not meant as a replacement for that jacket. From the pics this looks more like a normal hoody and more floppy than the wool jacket that I have. The wool jacket is more for casual wear and not very good for active pursuits.

If you're a XXL, you can still pickup the wool jacket here:

Great, very comfy

My feet get very anxious in shoes, I can't wear them for very long. These are surprisingly very comfortable and have been great on day hikes. The lace system is sweet since I hate shoe laces. They also work well with my orthodics. Very grippy and looks good with some dirt/mud on them - no complaints. Pic is from Haleakala on Maui.

These shoes are very similar in feel to my Sanuk's - very roomy - especially at the front. They're very light and very gripy and make for a comfy shoe. That being said, the heel is strangely really stiff, especially since the rest of the shoe is kind of floppy. It's taken me about 2 months to break in the heel pocket so they're a little more comfortable. They also have a very flat footbed, if you need arch support or something, these aren't your shoes. Bottom line is that they are light, roomy and breathe really well. They're good casual shoes but take some time to break in.

I don't have this exact shoe, but I have a NF shoe that has the same tread and was looking forward to using it in the snow - it's very grippy. My shoe (and this one looks similar) feels very light though, almost like a slipper and doesn't seem like it would be that warm. That's what socks are for though, right?

I don't think you can go wrong with any of these. I've always heard great things about the Gotamas and it is always well reviewed but I can't speak to it myself. I have a pair of Line skis and they are great, the Prophets are a solid ski. The Helix has more flex than the Prophets so if you like your skis stiff go for those. I've heard lots of good things about these Helix's - from some ski instructor friends. What you should really do, is check Tramdock.com for the Helix skis to pop up again - they were like $250 - that's a decision maker right there. :) (Check out TramAttack.com for Tramdock history...)
