Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have been looking for a new set of biking shades for a while. Tried some from Smith, Oakley, Tifosi, etc. Either the tint was off, they fogged terribly or they didn't fit. Compared to those, these are comparatively cheap and they are kind of a joke... or are they. I have set of the "Radical Polarized" and "Merika" Clears. The radicals have great tint and manage to maintain good contrast even in shady trails. The clears are like you would expect. The most impressive thing is that they DON"T FOG! I mean seriously, I've spent $100s on glasses trying to find this. If I have one complaint, the logo is at first a bit distracting but then you totally forget it's there. Another plus, they are the first glasses that look just as steezy off the bike. Well done!.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 157 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I've used it twice and have yet to fallen on it. For starters sizing is definitely on the European side of things and not cut for the super size me body habitus. I am 5'10" 157 and a size M fits well. The fabric breathes and wicks very well but the back D30 doesn't breath well--it's body armor I don't expect miracles. I find the fabric to be comfortable and in some way similar to under armour fabric. It's nice being to choose what elements you want in the shirt as far removing the spine/or shoulders. the length of protection is shorter than the alpine stars paragon or the Ion scrub amp but it is the same length of the back panel found in the Camelbak TORO. The sternum pad is nice. Overall pleased with it and will keep.

Well constructed pack on par with what you would expect from patagonia. For me the deal breaker is the diagonal ski carry. The loop hangs down pretty far from the pack and the upper attachment is in the center of the pack which means it more mostly a vertical carry and I tend kick my ski tails with my boots on my longer skis. If you're a snowboarder, it's flawless for its size

This a preliminary review but I did take these for a pretty long, dare I say "epic" session. For starters I measure a US mens 10.5/11.0 on a Brannock device. My foot is normal width lowish volume with a high instep. I ordered an 11.0 and they fit great. I use them with heavy wool hiker socks and sims freestone waders. They hug my foot well and with this setup; no heel slip or slop on dicey terrain. I normally don't post reviews until I have tortured gear because durability is an important aspect. I'm braking this rule for these because they are that good. Where I live, most of our rivers are difficult to fish. Technical approaches, high current, slick rock, gullys with steep muddy sides, lots of trees, slick roots, big distances/difficult terrain between holes... Overall technically more difficult than when I lived in CO. The interchangeable soles change everything. We can still use felt in Mi. Today I swapped soles twice with my boots on. My buddy wearing felt soles was apoplectic when I put the rubber soles on for the climb out. If they hold up, I can't ever see myself going back to standard boots.
