The difference is in the aluminum. The orange uses T6 aluminum which is the strongest aluminum and the yellow uses standard tempered aluminum.

From Voile's site:
T6 is the level of hardness reached in the aluminum heat-treating process for the Voile T6 model avalanche shovel scoop. Avalanche professionals, guides, patrollers, and rescue teams require this level durablity in their avalanche rescue shovel. All Voile T6 avalanche shovel scoops have deadman holes in the scoop to be used for snow anchors or for making a rescue sled.

I buy my wife shoes all the time. Honestly, I am not very good at it. I have the running shoes dialed in, thanks New Balance, but outside of that I'm like 30% success rate. I have a pair of sanuks and wanted her to feel like she is walking on clouds of fluffy cotton candy too - so I went for it. I snagged these and success! She loves them. They are comfortable, look good with a variety of outfits and they fit her well. I was nervous about the fit since there are not half sizes. She is a 7.5 and I went with the 7, only size left at the time. It worked out. I/she would recommend these.

I have read in the past that people have had a problem with the sole separating from the shoe. This has not been my experience. I really like these shoes. Great traction and a pretty true fit. I am almost always a 9.5 and that is what fit me best in these. They are pretty sturdy and still feel light. They also seem to breath well. I was hesitant to buy North Face shoes but I am really like these.

I have been wearing the fugitive all fall and winter. What I like about it is it seems to breath exceptionally well for being pretty wind resistant. Impressive really. It also insulates well for not being thick. It fits very well under my alpha LT jacket. The material has not pilled and looks like new. The fit overall is good. It is not a loose fit by any means but that is what makes it great. The fit allows you to use it as a mid layer and not be too bunched up.

The bad. The reason it is not a 5 star is the front is cut a little too short in my opinion. I probably should wear a M but my chest usually does not fit the M well. So I went with the L as I usually do with Arc'teryx. I still find the the front of it to come right to my belt. I am only 5'8" so when you add the fact that a M is what I should be wearing to me it seems like it should be a little longer. One thing I do like about the short front is it makes it a great piece for riding the bike. Longer in the back and short in the front are perfect for riding.
