If it's outside, I love it. But I spend most of my time in the Rockies and the West. A shout out to the South though, that's where I'm from.
Not super awesome in the venting department so depending on what you call cycling it may or may not be useful.
I would use it for bmx/mtb/skating but longer distance rides I think it would be too hot due to the lack of vents (although you can see that it does have some vents.)
I'll answer as best I can, although I don't have these specific gloves and I don't ride motorcycles.
However, I am familiar with a few of the Hestra models. Typically Hestra gloves have great dexterity, provided you buy the correct size. Considering skiers also reach, although not usually 70mph, but higher speeds and winds wouldn't be a concern. Also considering there is a Gore Windstopper membrane it's safe to say you're covered there.
Overall, I'd say it would be a useful application of the glove. The only thing I'd give a little extra thought to is the temperature. It's going to be a warm glove and 35 degrees really isn't that cold. Maybe 35 deg, + 70mph changes that though.
I'm a big fan of Hestra gloves for warmth and comfort.
You definitely need an insulated jacket, which this particular jacket is not. I would recommend a down insulated jacket because it's warm and lightweight. Typically down jackets are not great for taking lots of abuse so if that would be a concern I would go for a more traditional synthetic insulated coat.
The liners will pack out a little bit and you can wear thicker socks if you like but I don't think it's necessary for fit.
I don't believe it was pulled it's just under photos. Unless you wrote a separate review from your photo.
Vestibule deployed on the BH6 and it's pretty sweet. I put a tarp down so the dogs have a place to chill that's shaded and not directly in the dirt.
The vestibule is a cool option but I haven't really found a use for it yet that made me think I couldn't live without it. It's a nice place to store camp chairs and tables and stuff when we leave camp for the day or at night to get out of the morning dew.

The official owners manual says not to:
However, I have used it through a few hurricane power outages in my kitchen which was big enough that perhaps doesn't fall under the definition of "enclosed area." I think big rooms will probably be OK. Definitely not in a camper van or a tent though.
I hate to give bad advice so I feel like I should point out that while I have done exactly what you're asking can be done- nobody ever accused me of being brilliant. Take it for what it's worth.
As you can see, plenty of room in this big boy
You can strap just about anything you want to a back pack, but for me this would just be too much for back packing. It's your back though.... check the weight.
It depends on the color/size
I couldn't give you specific info on features but it's a bag that will likely need to be checked on every flight because of the size....unless you don't fill it to capacity and are able to jam it in the overhead. Otherwise, packed full, it will likely need to be checked.
He's going to be on Long Trail
...but it still depends on what kind of sleeper you are. Without knowing that, I'd say it's going to be cutting it a little close. You can sleep with an extra layer on if you had to but that might throw off your weight savings if you're counting ounces.
A 40 degree bag may give you a little bit more piece of mind.
I can think of a few options that fit the bill that even weigh less
Skied these in every condition this year and they haven't let me down one time. These are easily the best gloves I've owned. They look brand new after abusing them all season.
It has a lifetime warranty too? Easy decision, worth every penny even at full pop. This price @ 92.00 is a steal.
I will say that they might run a tiny little bit small. By my measurement I should wear a 7 but the size 8 fits perfect.
Yep, should be good to go
At least with synthetic bags you can still stay insulated and warm if you get wet, as opposed to down. Synthetic bags will also dry quicker.
I couldn't speak to the specific differences between the bags though.
You don't refill the one shown in the photo (even though it's not included) you would purchase a new one each time it's empty. Any self-sealing fuel canister can be used with these stoves.
The visor is removable so you have a good chance of it just popping off but it's going to depend entirely on how you fall on your face.
No. To fit in the overhead luggage compartments you'll need to find something approx 2500 cu. or less.
They are BPA free. The bottles Angus is referring to had tiny trace amounts of BPA in the liner but it was insignificant. They voluntarily recalled those bottles and replaced them with 100% non BPA lined bottles.
