Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs large
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 180 lbs
Size Purchased: L

After exchanging an XL for a L, my sleeves still extend about 15cm beyond my wrists. I know these guys are shooting for correct fit while in a riding position, but this jacket is way off.
The torso fit is also baggy due to the stiffness of the material, which cannot stretch to conform to your body. Either way, proper fit is not achieved when you wear this jacket while riding.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been using the 810 for about 8 months on training rides and tours up to 150 miles. While the device works great on rides less than 50 miles or so, my unit will randomly shut down if I use the map screen while following a course. Which is sad, since navigation and LiveTrack is supposed to be the justification for the extra cost of this unit, right?
After about 6 months, the unit also stopped synching with my phone reliably, regardless of all the updates Garmin makes you install.
While the hardware of the unit works well, ANT+ pairing is great, and battery life is around 11 hours, the unstable mapping aspect is a deal-breaker for me. I'm pretty much forced to use this unit with only the sensor reading screen active if I want to complete my ride without the device bombing around every 20 miles.

Good ideas, but poor execution.

I've tried the almond butter/honey and espresso chip and was pleasantly surprised. These energy bars are fairly compact and definitely taste way better than some of the other brands I've tried. I was also surprised how quickly I got an energy kick from them - although that probably varies a lot from person to person. Regardless, they pass the taste & effectiveness test for me and are being added to the long ride fuel arsenal.
