Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are great bibs! I am 6'-5" and 200 pounds. I purchased the XL-Tall. They are slightly loose around my torso but the length is perfect. The bibs are light-weight and very comfortable. The Gore-Tex pro shell fabric is waterproof and very breathable. Full length zippers on the legs add extra breathability when needed. If I had one suggestion, it would be to add extra pocket capacity. I test products for Gore and these are by far my favorite ski pants! Nice job Arc'teryx!!

I am a Gore MountainTech and I test products for W.L. Gore. I have tested numerous styles and brands and can say that this is definitely my go-to jacket from spring to fall. What I love about it is that it is extremely light-weight and extremely comfortable. It almost feels as though I am not wearing a jacket at all. Although it was clearly designed for expeditions where minimizing weight and bulk are essential, this jacket gets a lot of casual use from me as well. Construction is high quality, which is expected coming from Arc'teryx. Hood is appropriately sized and has a simple and effective rear cord for easy adjustment. I was initially concerned about ventilation, since there are no pit zips, but I am pleased with the breathability of the Gore-Tex PacLite fabric. No pit zips necessary. I am 6'5" tall and 195 pounds and the XL fits great.

These mittens are great for the price. I am a Gore Mountaintech and I've tested a lot of products for W.L. Gore. These mittens work great for casual downhill skiing. The are comfortable, breath well and are completely waterproof. There is enough room in them to add hand warmers if desired. The seams on mine started to unwind after "rough" activities. That is why I am giving them 4 not 5 stars. But definitely a great value.

This is a solid shoe from Merrell. I am a Gore Mountaintech and I've tested a lot of products for W.L. Gore. This is one of the best hiking shoes I have worn. They are extremely tough and rugged. They have always remained waterproof and have not leaked. They are well-built and I don't anticipate any problems with craftsmanship in the future. I typically wear a size 13 and I have found these to be constructed a little short compared to other brands. My only complaint is that one of the shoes squeaks when I walk. Otherwise I would have given them 5 stars.

This jacket is truly awesome. I am a Gore MountainTech and I have tested a lot of products for W.L. Gore. Arc'teryx left out no detail with this jacket. I am 6'-5" tall and weigh 195 pounds. The XL fits me just right. The sleeves have plenty of length for my long arms, it is just roomy enough to fit an insulating mid-layer, and long enough to extend a few inches below my waste. The hood fits great as well; just enough room to fit over my ski helmet. Pit zips are long and easy to use the pockets are large and well-positioned. The soft shell fabric is very rugged but is not at all constricting. It can handle a very wide range of temperatures with the proper layering and venting. Not only does the jacket perform well, it is also very fashionable and I receive compliments often. I really can find nothing bad to say about this jacket. Great job Arc'teryx!
