Got two - Denali Classics and my W's Lightning Ascent 25's fit beautifully. Beefy construction without being too heavy to attach to a pack. The inner pockets now hold floatation tails, a repair kit, and the snow baskets for off-season storage. I even stuck a snow claw shovel in with the snow shoes, easy fit. Only nitpick is the straps for the poles are super beefy and it took some finesse to get them to hold the slender ends of my poles (without baskets) tightly. One awesome feature I didn't see mentioned in the description and other reviews is that there is a nice hanging loop in addition to the carry handle and shoulder strap, which makes hanging them on your gear wall easy. This is the kind of purchase that may seem silly at first but will pay off in neat-freak storage, ease of transportation, and overall readiness for adventure!

I have the fluorescent yellow and they're a great 45 - 65 degree glove. I usually wear a men's L in pearl izumi and craft gloves, and they stretch to fit just great. The only drawback is that the wrist is a bit high - not as much coverage as I prefer. The grip dots are fantastic, the yellow really stands out the way I want for non-summer riding, and they breathe quite well. Easy to roll and stash. No real wind resistance against a real raw chill, but surprisingly warm in most conditions for their weight.

I've tried Bolle's, Oakleys, Rudys...like other gear fit counts, but if your face is in the medium range I highly recommend these shades. I'm on my 3rd pair - one was stolen, the others to be sure I'm always covered since I use them for everything. The coverage is outstanding for biking and boating, they're nice and lightweight, and once you learn how you can swap out lenses super-quick. The polarized lenses are superb, and the RC30s (rose) are unbelievably great in overcast snowy conditions -- I won't drive in bad weather without them. I like the gray lenses for true color - great for everyday, hiking, etc. The brown give excellent contrast, especially handy for high speeds on the road bike. I don't end up using the yellows much but the clear are an eye-saver for when my bike commute is dark and cold. Smith's warranty is pretty great but even if you do something dumb -- say, step on them like I did and crack a lens -- you can easily get replacement lenses here. They may seem a bit steep, but they are seriously worth it.
