I purchased my Osprey Talon 11 as a lightweight replacement for my Dakine Heli-Pro (which is perfect on the slopes in winter but a bit heavy for summer sports). I first used it in a summer ultra-distance event and couldn't be happier ... the mesh breathes well, it's really lightweight and it stays securely in place so there's no chafing issues if trail running. I've since used it for mountain biking and it's a nice size for tools plus weather gear. And the gel/snack pockets are right where you need them to be.

My Backcountry.com Cocona No-Show Socks have served me well with cycling and trail running duty. Very light weight and they wick moisture well. I generally use heavier and slightly higher-cut socks, but have found these to be superior for keeping cool and dry without missing the extra padding. The L/XL fits men's size 10.5 (USA) perfectly. And the odor suppression works!

This is my first pair of MTB-specific shorts. I like the fit and the stretchy outer-short material ... definitely nicer than throwing board shorts over a liner. There's actually three zip vents and one zip pocket behind the right leg. The liner is well made and comfortable, but oddly, Pearl Izumi doesn't carry a comparable liner in their catalog if you want extras. I'll probably remove the plastic clips that fasten the liner to the shorts as they're unnecessary.
