Excellent design, simple, well constructed of rugged materials and good price. The only thing I would have liked to see would be an outer zipper guard on the bottom zipper. That would help protect the zipper from possible damage if the bag is tossed around by airlines etc.
Most important, ALL my outer gear fits in this bag: size 11 ski boots fit in bottom (w/ room to spare!) and my helmet, goggles, gloves, bib and outer jacket shell fit easily in top. Now I just grab this bag, my ski bag and a back pack for personal clothes etc. and I'm good to go.
Finally, I don't think I will use the 'stand in the bag' feature they talk about when putting on my boots as I'd rather keep the bag clean and undamaged for as long as possible.

Just a quick note, these pants fit over my heavy duty Asterisk knee braces w/ no problem! I haven't skied in them yet (it's still summer) but the build quality is outstanding as expected. I use other gear by Arc'Teryx (climbing/outdoor activities) and have been impressed by the thoughtful designs and durability of their products so I expect similar. I plan on using these pants skiing and for those wet rainy days when riding my dual sport motorcycle.

I've used this bag down to 20F by placing my outer jacket and other clothing on top. It did the trick and stayed put even though I tend to roll over during the night, which is the main reason I purchased it. Also works well when it's hot. This is the first time I've slept in a bag that stays put!!! Great product, very well built and designed.

Out of the box these shoes are tight, but thanks to the leather uppers they will eventually break in. I also wear a 10 (43.5) and it has taken several weeks for break in, but now I can go all day. It might still be a good idea to go 1 size larger then normal...best to try on 1st? These shoes work great (I climb 11's) and I found them for just over $50 on sale....I do get strange looks due to the unconventional heal design. I wouldn't use them for walk offs though.
