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

I normally don't spend this much on shorts but I'm glad I sprung for these. By far they are the best I've owned and they are holding up very well from mountain biking to hiking year round. They are very light, stretchy, and thin (but durable). My only complaint would that they are a bit on the slippery side, so you tend to slide around on seated activities (like mountain biking). But its a minor complaint and wouldn't deter me from recommending these shorts.

Like so many other reviewers, the SR-strap quit on me as well. Mine quit at about the year and a half mark usual casual wear / tear. The watch, itself, is in great shape and still works flawlessly. Which begs the question as to why Suunto equipped such a durable, reliable, watch with such an unreliable strap? I have no problem recommending this watch, but only if you're willing to set aside some cash for near-future strap replacement(s).

Carbide is not Black

Maybe I'm going color blind, but I sent one back because the Carbide I ordered turned out to be a dark grey / Silver. The second one came in and its still grey / silver, nowhere close to the picture BC has up. So, in case anyone was wondering how close the actual color is to the image, its not (see my picture for true color).

Edit (2/10): thanks for correcting the product photo!

Great Base layer
5 5

I use these tights as a base layer under my ski pants as well as rain pants and so far they are doing the job very well. My main concern was how well they would sit above my ski socks, staying out of my boots but as close to the top of the socks as possible to minimize cold spots. For me, they sit pretty much perfectly above my ski socks and, more or less, stayed there throughout the day.

Just to give you guys a heads up, the specs on these pants are wrong about the pockets. It does not have 2 front, nor 2 back. It has only one pocket - on the right leg like in the picture.

I was pretty disappointed after being pretty excited to receive these pants today. I'm still debating whether or not I can find a way to get by with just that pocket. I was really hoping to get some multi-use out of these pants: outdoor excursions + around town / on campus. But the one pocket is so small it'll probably just fit a wallet; which leaves me holding my keys and phone all day long. So much for that idea...

I'm used to having a Gore-Tex shell and just layering up underneath, works great for staying dry and being protected from the wind. I'm not familiar with the Rebar Ripstop AXF Conduit material, how waterproof / windproof is that compared to Gore-Tex? given its waterproof rating of 20K (sorry I'm not familiar with these ratings).

Other retailers are guilty of this as well, but I don't understand why BC doesn't bother to show pictures of the interior compartments? after all, based on reviews so far, it sounds like this pack is very student friendly (laptop sleeve, tons of interior pockets, etc.) I would love to see the interior compartments if someone can kindly take a few pictures.

I'm looking to do away with umbrellas, permanently. I've already got the outerwear covered (mostly Gore-Tex) but I still need a solution for my backpack (carries overpriced college books, and a laptop most of the time).

Does anyone have experience with using this water repellent on packs? how effective is it and if it goes a long period without getting wet (no rain) does the coating dry up and flake off? (or in general become less effective?)

Unlike most reviewers for these boots, I had a super hard time breaking these puppies in. They fit perfectly, provides great ankle support, kept my feet super dry, and gripped the terrain like there was no tomorrow. However, the bend at the front pinched the life out of my feet. I put 10 solid miles on them throughout the course of a weekend and my toes felt like they were going to fall off. Besides my poor toes, though, the rest of my feet love these boots!
