Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought these to try after getting sick of the inconsistent sizing of TNF pants. I am impressed with the quality, durability, and aesthetic appeal of arc'teryx pants. They are expensive, but they have a flattering fit (at least on athletic and thin bodies), are comfy, and as much as I put clothes through, they have stood up to it (had them for 4 years now).

They are passable for casual outings, great for activewear (hiking, mtn biking, etc), dry quickly when wet, have plenty of pocket space, the adjustable webbing 'belt' is very useful, and after all this time mine have never stained, and only have a tiny hardly noticeable tear from climbing over a fence.

Be cautious with their sizing too though...I bought a pair of their more casual pants in the same size, and the legs are super baggy, whereas these fit great. The expense of these pants is worth it if affordable. They were around $80 on sale (around 20/year for 4 years of use) and I easily expect them to last for several more years despite heavy/hard use.

I think I'll end up ordering another one of these shirts just because of the high quality and nice fit. At 5'6" 130, the medium fits great and has a nice feminine style. The fabric is incredibly soft and comfortable - it is very fine though. I've received many compliments on the shirt as well. I'll definitely buy more from icebreaker in the future. Even if they are a little pricey, it's worth it for me.

I have a pair of these, and a pair of the Patagonia Capilene 4 (from last year) and I have to say so far I prefer these. One big difference - they don't have a seam that can come undone on the side. They are listed as midweight, but keep me just as warm as any heavyweight base layers that I've worn. The fabric is nice and doesn't make me itch, and they are very flattering (like most arc'teryx clothing.) These also make a nice layer for sleeping with temperature changes.

They are a bit pricey (again, just like the rest of the brand), but I will probably get another pair because of the quality and the fact that these clothes seem to last very well.

Identical to an older style hat of theirs (the name was very similar). Not something for camping in the wilderness on cold nights (not windproof at all), but nice to wear casually or underneath a helmet. I received a lot of compliments.

This version is a fair amount bigger - will easily fit both male and female heads, but if you have a smaller head, it is a little too long (an inch more than the older hat and larger than the waldo beanie as well).

Color is misrepresented on the copper/mahogany hat. It is significantly darker - almost orange and red, not two shades of orange. The copper color in particular is much darker than it shows in the picture. Other than that, the hat is of good quality, and covers ears well.

These boots are great from anything from snowshoeing to playing in the snow. They are the most comfortable boots I've worn yet.

I took a hike to a frozen cave, and completely soaked my foot by stepping through the ice while wearing these. Despite the mile plus hike back - my foot was still warm when I got back to the car.
