Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I wrote a review for the Base bar. I'm pretty sure the Base is now called the Core, or vice versa. Either way, I really like these. They make a great on-the-go breakfast or recovery bar, and they are pretty tasty. As with pretty much any protein bar, you'll probably want a beverage to wash them down. (Because they are rich, not because they taste bad or anything.)

I got these to replace my Chaco Flips that lasted for years and years. I got the Kellens because they looked the most like my old Flips. The Kellens have a much more supportive footbed than my Flips. I didn't really care about that while I was shopping, but I must admit they're more comfortable than my Flips. These feel like they'll last a long time like my Flips did, as well. Did I say Flips enough? Flips, flips, flips. Flips.

I got a pair just like everybody else, and I love them. They fit better with my older Smith helmet (less gaper gap) and the lense interchange system is easy. I can change them in about 60 seconds. Their frameless design does make them more prone to scratching though. But then again, they come with 2 lenses right out of the box, which is cool.

Sizing has gone nuts, sadly

Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 150 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I've had a bunch of Mojos throughout the years, and they're my go-to short of climbing/bouldering or chilling. However, the pair I just bought were almost a full size too large, despite still being labeled a Medium. I tried on a Small at a local store, and they fit just like my older Mediums. I need to return these Mediums, as they're no way I could wear them. See my attached pic of my older used Mediums versus the new way-too-big (Green) Mediums. What happened, Prana?

I bought a box of Strawberry and found them much too firm to eat on the run. They feel like you'd lose a tooth if you bit all the way into one and tried to chew it.

Orange, on the other hand, was much softer and could be eaten during a long trail run and with no danger to your dentures. Both flavors tasted good, IMO.

The Strawberry chews weren't close to their expiration date or anything, so I can't explain the difference in firmness. I have bought Orange ones from various places at various times and they have always been soft enough to eat anywhere, any time.

I love the original Pro-bars, and I'm now also a fan of their Base bar. They're tasty, not overpoweringly sweet and have good protein/carb/fat specs. Unlike the original Pro-bar, I always like to have a beverage with my Base bar. A black coffee and a Base bar is a pretty nice way to start work the day if you played hard outside the day before.

I was pretty nervous paying this much for something like this, but it's become my go-to lightweight 2nd layer for a lot of activities. Trail running, mountain biking, keeping the chill off in our cold house, etc. The front of the hood definitely comes up to my upper lip when it's all zipped up, so don't expect a cotton hoodie fit in any aspect.

I got the dark grey and it works well when a cotton hoodie would look a little too casual. I felt like I was between sizes, and I got the large. The sleeves are a bit long, but that's true to size for a large, so I wasn't surprised. I could have gone with a medium and still been happy. I wear this a lot.

Just enough compression to do the job without being uncomfortable or impossible to put on. I like to wear them at my desk job right after and/or the day after a good trail run, ski day, etc. I'd recommend trying to use even pressure when pulling them on or off, I have an older pair that has a bit of a hole wearing in it from my thumb. (But the hole doesn't seem to be getting worse since I've started being careful around it.)

I will probably always have one or two pairs of these in the sock drawer.

I was expecting this to fit slimmer, based on it being an Arc'teryx, but a Medium is a little big on me (5'9 - 150lbs). Still a great shirt with a good feel and standard high level of Arc'teryx quality.
