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

As usual, Arc'Teryx=a cut above the rest. I've had my Rampart shorts for over 3 years now and they don't look any different than when they were new. The fit is spot on and the snap closure system is great. Pockets are low profile so these don't have that lame cargo short look. The flap system is secure, and while I wouldn't trust them like zippered pockets, this does keep the weight down and increases comfort. Fabric is amazingly stretchy and even a little water repellent, plus holds up better to abrasion than you would expect. These are perfect for hiking even on long backpacking trips and move well under a harness for climbing, not to mention look great around town as well. You can catch these on sale occasionally, you will be glad you snagged at least one pair.

Wow. This is the most amazing daypack out there. It has so many features, is built really solid, and flat out looks sick. I use it for school, travel, and skiing. The black chop shop graphic is really loud and sticks out. This pack has a small profile, so you can wear it on the lift, but is deceivingly roomy inside. The reason I chose the Pro II over the Heli Pro is the better, more stable ski carry system and more overall compression for smaller loads. It looks like it can hold skis up to around a 120-130mm waist, so if you're rockin the K2 Pontoons or other fatties, this should work better than the Heli Pro. The snowboard carry system works great for boarders, and carries a skateboard as well. It takes awhile to get acquainted with this packs features since theres so many. The main compartment is accessed through the backpanel, which is nice, and a smaller zipper on the top. For an inbounds day, you can throw your lunch inside and cinch down the straps knowing your load will not move around, or load it up with avalanche gear, skins, a puffy, helmet, food, water, camera, spare gloves and goggles, and an ice axe. This pack will carry anything you might need for a full day of big mountain riding. I highly recomend this product, it will last a very long time.
