MG64's Bio

Love to ski. Pretty good for a flatlander, about average for those who live in the hills. Getting older and slower, but still having fun! Also love to hike. Glacier is the best followed by the Tetons and Yosemite.

I like some things about these shorts, and I hate some things about these shorts. Love the fit, material and liner. XL fits great (5' 11", 220). length is just above the knee. Material stretches nicely. The liner breathes well, and has lots of padding for longer rides. Hate (Ok, hate is a little strong) the snaps and the BOA adjustments. The snaps will unsnap occasionally. The BOA adjustments are a cool concept, but not really necessary. You can dial the waist adjustment, which is easy and cool, but the adjusters will also pop open once in a while. They are more of a gimmick than anything. Velcro would have been fine. Overall, I would say I like the shorts since they fit great, and breathe well.

I love almost everything about these shorts, but the length. The shorts go to the bottom of my knees. I prefer my shorts to be near the top of my knee.

The material is very light and stretchy. Good venting, and enough pocket space to get by. I am 5' 11", 220, and the XL fit well in the waist, rear, and legs. I have a pair of Sugoi RSX shorts that are made of similar material. They are holding up well after a dozen or so rides and a couple falls. I would assume these would hold up just as well.

The liner seems OK, but I did not ride in them. I have both the RC100 and Formula FX liners made by Sugoi. The RC Pro is in between the two in terms of padding. I regularly ride all day in the Formula FX liners. The RC100s are left for short rides when nothing else is clean.

Fit seems inline with other cycling apparel. I am 5'11", 215 lb. The XL fits with plenty of room for waist adjustment. Shorts come to just above the knee. The liner breathes well, and fits perfectly. It is shorter than my PI Attacks. The liner is a mesh material and very thin. It cannot be worn by itself. The chamois is fine for rides of an hour or maybe two. I would not wear the liner for an all day ride. Overall quality seems very good. There is no damage or signs of wear after 25+ rides and several spills

Very light jacket with tons of pockets. Got it for $110 off SAC. I'm 6'- 230, and the XL fits great with room for layering. Soft material, no noise. Breathes well. I love the zipper. Its big and beefy. Slides together easily, and zips effortlessly. Hood adjusts nicely. Sleeves are a little long, but most XL sleeves are long on me. The Angel Wing design is nice. The coat does not ride up when I lift my arms.

Only complaints are the color, and the Pit zips. The Deep Blue looks a little purple in lower light. The pit zips could use mesh behind them like other jackets. When the zips are open, its like having a hole in the coat.

Got the Welder Hi yesterday, sent it back today. I am bummed. The jacket looked great, was comfortable in the torso, and well made. The problem is the arms were too tight. I am 6' 230 with a 48" chest. With just a t-shirt on, my arms were very constricted (shoulder down to forearm). No way to wear any kind of base layer should it be real cold outside. People with 48" chests buying an XL probably have good size arms to match. if you are tall or big in the chest with thin arms, this coat would be great.

Had there been more arm room, I would have loved this jacket. The lining was warm and soft. The shell was not stiff, and very quiet. The extra length in the back was perfect.

Bought one off SAC a few years ago for skiing. Keeps the water in a liquid state as advertised. The pack is pretty thin, and fits easily under my jacket. Straps are comfortable and have plenty of room. I'm 6', 230 and it fits fine. The pocket on mine is different from the current version, and does not hold much. Maybe keys, a wallet and an energy bar. Plenty of pockets in my jacket, so not an issue for me.

Toasty warm on a 35 degree Chicago day. Keeps those mild (25+) Midwestern breezes out well as long as the pockets are zipped. XL ran tight across the chest and snug in the arms. Most XL stuff is loose on me. The XXL fits like an XL should. Arms are definitely XXL though. Quality and comfort are A++, just be aware that they run small.
