Familiarity: I've used it several times

BCA added a couple features that are really nice. The segments snap to 0, 90, and 180 degrees which is nice for folding into a freestanding T or L shape. Also, each end has 0cm on one side and 200cm on the other. This is nice because you don't have to unfold the whole thing to find the 0cm mark, you just flip it over. I prefer it this way over 0 cm on one side and 0 inches on the other because inches are pointless.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

There are 4 criteria that I look for in gloves. Waterproofness, durability, dexterity, and quick-drying. Since I spend most of my time in the North Cascades and BC's Coast Mountains, most gloves are sufficiently warm, so that isn't a main priority for me. These gloves score 10/10 on all my criteria except quick drying because the don't have a removable liner. But because I haven't yet found the perfect glove, these still get 5 stars.

Got these pants primarily for backpacking in the PNW and some light summer skiing.
They are very comfortable, pack very small, and are average weight.
The waterproofing is 100%.
BUT, both zippers tore away from the fabric at the ankle. Even though Arc-teryx hooked up some different pants on warrantee, I was bummed because I liked these so much.
Bottom line: excellent pants, not durable enough for skiing.
