You get what you pay for. I have owned these pants for about 6-months and they have gone and done everything in comfort and style, sometimes for multiple days at a time. These pants have seen trails, bikes, harnesses, crags, rivers and even a fancy dinner or two and handled them all like a champ. Washed many times w/o issue, doesn't stain any worse than any other material, and is very abrasion resistant. In addition, kudos to Arc' for providing pants for people over 6-feet tall. Most other manufacturers think the world ends at a 32-inch inseam, but not Arc'.

Given Backcountry's unparalleled return policy and the Arc'teryx LIFETIME warranty(great customer service too), I don't think you can go wrong.

It kills me to see people give products poor ratings for size when the size/capacity is listed! Yes, it is 690cu in small, but I have been able to pack (1) pair of gloves, (1) pair of sunglasses, (1) Sigg 0.6L water bottle, (1) hat, (1) light fleece underlayer, (1) transceiver, (1) 2-way radio, (1) ziplock of jerky, dried mango and fruit snacks and (1) wallet...all at the same time w/o any trouble! I could probably fit some skins in there too. This is a slick, well designed, minimalist pack that makes a lot of sense for all those who know how to pack a pack and don't want/need to look like a sherpa. If you need more capacity, check out the Outlaw or Covert.

Super comfy, bullet proof construction and if you have issues, Arc'teryx has customer service right up there w/ backcountry.com. Been attaching my board to this pack all winter and the system is holding up like new! Fish-mouth opening makes it so easy to pack and offers great accessibility to anywhere within the pack. Really slick design and clean-looking; not too much going on on the outside so you don't look like you belong in the Himalayas.
