I agree with other posters. I totally have mixed feelings about these. First off, I have to sound like a girl and say I LOVE the color. :) Besides that, the traction is great, as I have been running on snow/ice and haven't fallen yet (with 2 chocolate labs, which makes it way more challenging...). However, the fit is way different that the salomon's I've owned. I've had 2 pairs of XA Pro 3D Ultra GTX's, and I deperately needed a replacement and the XT Wings were the only pair I could find locally. These slip a lot in the heel, almost to a point where I should have sized down. The "laces" seem extremely long. The arch support is better, but feels misplaced. I guess these are just too expensive to not feel 100% about. I will most likely be returning them, and just ordered the XA's from backcountry.

This is my spring/summer go-to jacket. It's very comfortable and I love the detailing-purple zippers, and a inside chest-pocket!The tag recommends it be washed wtih Nikwax to help keep it water repellant. I used Nikwax once and it seems to keep the rain off. I'm not sure it it is totally necessary, though.
