I've worn them for less than a month and lace system is total crap. They slide very easy and won't hold. It's best to tie them, but then why do they even put that lace system?
Shoes/ boots are awesome, fit is great and function great. However, for trail run purpose I don't get why they won't offer Non-Gore version. Gore takes forever to dry up and in recent run they got wet immediately after I step on semi-deep paddle (not deeper than top line of the shoes, but wish splashing unavoidable to get wet). Rest of run my feet was sliding inside a little, and of course some blisters and hotspots afterwards. Overall this isn't bad, but I'd recommend non-gore.

I picked it up for my daily run in non-summer season. So far they work really great. The back mesh helps breeze, and not so obvious reflective signs actually work nicely. I got nighthawk color, which is cool combination of blue and gray. I still love the color but also wish Arc would offer it in much lighter gray, as the color isn't the best in sunny day. I also love the pocket design, I hated Accelereo due to tiny useless pocket, but Incendo really nailed it.

This pack has great potential for both adventure race pack and bike pack. I've used for entier summer and found it very useful. The only downside is the side pockets - it doesn't have any mechanism to keep them shut, and due to the slick material anything (ie energy gel, gps, compass) will fly out. Not sure why Arc didn't add streach material to keep the pocket shut / use mesh instead. This is the only drawback.
I'm retiring this pack now, since I got Axios 25 and Aerios 7 - Aerios 14 is too big for my running, and too small to be used on my travel needs.

I'm a runner, and I love these shorts. I have last year's model (no zipper pocket on the side, instead small gel pocket), and they fit great and allow me to wear my regular underwear / tights under them. They are tad long for serious distance running, but they do streach and fits like gloves. I love them. I just wish price isn't so high, otherwise I'd buy more.

I really love this pack - I originally bought Aerios 14, which is smaller version of this pack with almost same features. I loved the Aerios 14 but wanted to have the same design on bigger pack for carry on travel pack, so I pulled the triger on Axios. Wow, this is really nice. Sized just perfect, my 14' Toshiba fits well, side pockets have bungees built in, keeping most of items safe (not with Aerios, which has really poor side pocket). I also love that waist belt can tuck in. Orange lining is huge +++.
The only beef was the logo (as you can see my question below). It turned out the actual product has big ARC word under the birdy logo. Why such a big deal? Well, I don't like big logo screaming on my gear, and I expected the Axios to be same as Aerios, stealthy bird logo. No such luck. I guess I will dye this thing...

This is very minimal wing jacket, no frill at all. With that said, it must choose the user for sure. For me it wasn't worth spending $130. Also I dind't think the material was all that good running miles in cool drizzle weather. I have had better options such as MH Geist, which I LOVE that most and very similar concept as Celeris in my opinion.

Last note, can't Arc offer better color options? How about Grey? I can't stand BLUE, GREEN, RED, YELLOW, sure they stand out but not everyone wants such high visible color...thanks.

I have tried last year and this year's Accelero, love the material and fit. I mainly wear it as a top layer over a wicking shirt while running 5~10 miles. The HUGE drawback is lack of large pockets and no drawstring around waist. I do like a tiny tiny pocket on bicep, but it's barely large enough for...eh, a coin? I have to carry a few keys, cash, subway card at minnimal, and this jacket force me to wear a toolbelt (not really...fuelbelt) which I don't like. Arc is very minimalistic design, and this is perfect example, but for the price, they can add a little more functions.

I travel alot, and saw another dude sitting next me wearing the RX travel, and he never shut up about how great they are, so I had to get em at next shoes store I found on the road.... WOW, they are very so nice! I love the fact that they are so breathy and yet cushy. I ended up with the same size as my Salomon hiking boots (quest 4), since I'd wear with & without sox. I'm actually ordering another pair from backcountry, so I have couple pairs for travel and around house.
