At first I didn't like the look of the "wings" on each side of the goggles, but they've grown on me and the fit is excellent with a helment. The best part about these goggles is the excellent field of vision you get, much more than A-frames. If you ride at night, be sure to check out the HI-yellow lenses.

I got my Matador towards the end of February. It's a really nice jacket- with laminated reinforcements on the elbows and other places, you can tell it's well designed. The fabric does stop the wind really well and it's nice to have insulation instead of layering so much. Overall, it's a nice, technical jacket. One disappointment I had was realizing it was made in China- I had always believed all Arc'teryx was made in Canada. However, the build quality is excellent, so maybe that isn't too important. However, the MSRP of $450 is far too high in my opinion. There is no way I would pay full retail for it.

I snowboard in these and they are great gloves. They are incredibly unique and the look is about as cool as anything made. I have the brown color which looks amazing.


Also very functional. I have ridden in 15 degrees at Vail with no extra liner and was fine. Not super warm but still ok. They are extremely lightweight and soft as well. Be careful about touching edges with them though, as they are extremely soft and scar easily.

I already reviewed these, but for some reason it didn't show up.

These gloves are awesome- extremely unique, killer styling and excellent function. They look like nothing else- almost like something a superhero would wear in a movie. Looking at how they are stitched together one can see all the care put into making them.

Functionally they are excellent as well. VERY lightweight, I was surprised. I've used them in 15 degree weather at Vail and was fine although I'm sure a liner would help.
