These are a great shoe for the service industry as well as everyday life. I purchased these for Long hours on my feet at Sundance Film Festival. They are easy to slip on and fit true to size. The main reason I bought these was because the last few years have been pain on my heels. After a day my heel would be bruised. But these Merrel's changed that. They were very comfortable, lots of cushion. They also had tons of grip, so when I was carrying 40lbs of gear on the icy streets I was confident that I wouldn't fall thanks to Merrel.

I really wanted to like these boots because I love all my other Arcteryx gear however they did not hold up to my expectations. I have only used them a few times these are my thoughts on them.
Here are the Good/Neutral points:
They run a bit more narrow then your traditional shoe. So if your foot is on the narrow side of things then these will fit you great.
They are definitely waterproof. I have been dragging my feet through snow and slush over the last few weeks and my feet were super dry the whole time.
The construction seems pretty solid. Now I haven't been able to abuse these as much as I would like, but they seem like they would hold up to a lot of abuse.
The sole of this shoe is very good, everything you would expect from a Vibram sole.

Now the Bad Things:
They are pretty hard to get on and off. Some this isn't an issue for but some it is. There were definitely times I was cursing it and other times that they seemed to slide on easily.
The biggest thing that bothered me was the heel cup. First there isn't enough padding. Second the heel cup is too big. It doesn't seem to hold your heel in place. When I was hiking up steep slopes my heel would hit the back of the heel and after 10 steps it would get uncomfortable quick. I couldn't imagine 15 miles in them.

That is what you get when a company tries to jump into a new category. I'm sure the shoes to come will be improved and everything we expect from Arcteryx. They just aren't quite there with their boots.

This is a great glove. It feels like you aren't wearing the glove at all in terms of Mobility. The windstopper in the glove makes this glove a 5 star. I plan on taking it touring this year for my uphill glove and I imagine it will do the job great.

This has come to be one of my favorite flannels. It is more lightweight then most flannels so it is easy to wear it during most occasions. The Buttons are a snap button not a traditional button. This is a nice added touch. You can wear it in a crowded club and not get too hot or in the office all day.
KAVU knows how to make a great flannel for the outdoor person in all of us.
This shirt fits True to Size

You cannot beat Prana for quality and comfort. It's hard to find a jean to keep buying after the first pair but this is one of them. These jeans are a straight cut relaxed fit jean. They are a bit looser in the leg then I would like, but these are still one of my favorite jeans. These do fit true to size. I will be buying more of this jean.

These things are money! They are the best of both worlds. The material is very soft and comfortable. They are also extremely durable. I have just used them a few times but I am sure these will last for a very long time.
