Really bad design. Goggles pop out repeatedly. Retainer interferes with clasp on band of lots of goggles so that it constantly slips off. Caught it while ducking under a branch and cracked it right off at the base. I love the fit and venting, but this was enough of an issue that I'm looking elsewhere.

I love these socks. I bought 8 pair just so that I could always have freshies available. I was concerned about the material content (I have very sensitive skin and get blisters easily), but they've turned out to be extremely comfortable and warm. I don't get hot spots with them either.

I loved them enough that I actually went back and bought extra pairs to give to friends as Christmas presents.

I switched from Crank Brothers with the cherry picker baskets and platform to these. Totally awesome change!

I've saved myself from a couple of crashes by being able to jam a foot out. Yet the pedals and my 5-10 shoes are just as slip proof. Light and strong too. I've banged them into plenty of rocks without any chips or dings.

Now I find myself attempting moves that I wouldn't have before, when clipped in, since I can push it up to the last possible instant.

I love them!

I absolutely loved the jacket and used it as an inner layer on the coldest days. Very comfortable and _very_ warm. But after a few months it began to leak little bits of down. Not just bits of fluff, but whole feathers. I finally ended up returning it so that I could try the RAB or Mountain Hardware instead. I can't blame the material ... I play hard. But I'm hoping to find more durability.
