Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large

this is a well-made tee-shirt. the stitching is well-done, flash-dry fabric seems "robust", and would dry quickly, and TNF offers cool colors, but the fit is all off. first of all the shirt comes down to below by butt, giving me that "gansta" look, which isn't exactly my style, and for a workout shirt, I like something shorter. (for refrence i am on the short side at 5'8'', but this is the first "performance shirt" that has been this long on me). also, I was expecting a more close to body fit, and this is definitely on the baggier side (and I'm not super skinny). but if you like shirts that fit like that, then this might be for you.

most water resistant softshell pants i have owned. typical arcteryx durability - as bomber as you can get with a softshell. fit is perfect - not baggy and no excess fabric, but not super tight either.

love the kevlar crampon instep patch. really dig the suspenders - they obviate the need for a belt - (hate having to wear belts - especially if I have to wear climbing harness over it - whole setup becomes so bulky), and they keep pants where they should be - on my hips.

fit is on the slim side. I have 32'' waist and 30'' inseam and, suprisingly, I needed a size SMALL, SHORT. that's kinda par for the course for arcteryx - all thier stuff seems to run on the slim side and long

my new go-to softshell for high-output cold weather activity. extremely light, extremely breathable - I routinely wear on my morning trail runs. not very warm on its own. very close-fitting, but I can easily layer a tight base layer underneath. with a midlayer fleece, or a vest, I would imagine this would be warm enough for all but the coldest winter weather. windstopper fabric does what it claims to do - I have tested on the mountains around lake tahoe.

warning - Eclipse blue is VERY blue. fatigue/beluga is more subdued green - more of a forest green.

very supportive with heavy winter pack, but suprisingly nimble for a big, winter boot. No blisters after a 9 mile hike up Mt. Tallac, south lake tahoe. feet stayed warm and dry through snow, ice and slush. a bit heavy, but very warm. big fan of the speed lacing - much like Soloman trail runners. lugs are a bit unusual-looking but pretty good traction.

I will now be using these for all but glacier travel or vertical ice climbing. ridiculously lightweight and simple but EXTREMELY functional. I pack them along and whip them out when the trail becomes icy, and, BOOM! instant traction. like snow chains for my feet. they now have a permanent place in my winter pack. takes mere seconds to put on/take off - SO much better than fooling around with crampons.
