Prana got it right with the cotton poly blend on this shirt. Nice style, good fit, and functional for both casual and strenuous activities. I really like the synergy of these fabrics. Ordered this one to replace some old prana cotton poly blend shirts that are showing the wear of favorite apparel. I'm 6 ft, about 175 lbs, with about a 42 inch chest - the Large fits perfectly. Prana must have changed their sizing in the last few years as the L now fits me the same as the XL on my older shirts.

Used the Wisdoms occassionally during the 08-09 season. Notice the design where the strap connects to the goggle. This plastic connector is not truly compatible with many helmets (mine is a Giro G10 MX), resulting in the dreaded gaper gap. Same problem experienced by numerous friends trying out the same model goggle with various helmets. Unforgivable design flaw in my opinion, thus the 2 star. I'd consider them adequate (3*) for helmetless riders. Nothing special - I'd never pay msrp for these. Mine are black irridium lens. They appeared mirrored in the backcountry.com photo but when I recieved them they looked see-through. When you put them on though, they do look mirrored. That is, your eyes cannot be seen.

These gloves have only gone on about 4 rides. The stitching is sub-par, already coming out in places. No way they'll last a season (~60 rides for me). Additionally, this year's forensic has a seam on the outer palm that can cause discomfort on long rides. I see this seam on a lot of gloves - I don't know what's so hard about recognizing that major contact points aren't good locations for seams. There is a snot guard this year but the improvement is lost on me; I'd rather have fit, comfort, & durability. I was a big fan of Sombrio a couple years ago. In my assessment, their product quality & design has been declining the past 2 years.

Originally ordered a md since a 34 is usually my max on waist. The mediums were tight, embarassingly tight. Seriously, since when is Canada in Europe? I returned for a sz L & am happy. Material construction is excellent - stretches, breaths, and appears to be pretty durable for the weight. Pockets have magnet closure. No pockets other than the 2 cargos. If you're carrying any extra junk in your trunk you might have to go 2 sizes up in order to avoid advertising your peaks and valleys - velcro adjustment on waist functions well.
