Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 175 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I wore the shirt for 2 days in the Andorran mountains riding downhill with my friends. I had many crashes and on the second day I crashed right into the side back on one of the trails and the shirt held up perfectly showing only impregnation marks from the dirt and the grass I crashed into.

I could also wear my elbow guards (I have the FOX launch Pro) under the shirt. Very comfortable and roomy enough to do tricks on the trails and allows plenty of movement.

Buttons are big and durable with a very ergonomic design, and close / open really nicely.

Would definitely carry this shirt around on future riding trips!

I'm quite slim and tall (6.0 and 165lb) and despite that, the jacket is veeeery long and quite narrow (Has that Slim-fit feel).

A Backcountry gearhead recommended this jacket for touring, but honestly I feel tied up wearing this jacket as it reaches my thighs and hinders mobility.

The fabric and finishing is top notch and feels like it would last forever. If only Armada made it with a bit more room for a down jacket. 3 stars for this one!!! ...

I do not agree with the other review on the page. I own several jersey and this one is one of my favorites.

I got the Cauz Red color and it's awesome!!! purchased this at 50% discount and i'm really glad I did. Fabric is soft, comfortable and cool.

Few Problems to Address, Not the Best

I'm not sure why people rave about these goggles. I own 3 other goggles (Oakley Canopy, Dragon APXs, and Scott LCG) and they all outperform the I/O by far.
Some people are comparing these goggle to 50 bucks goggles, and for sure they will find a huge difference!

Here's an objective review after several uses:

These goggle are in fact perfect for smaller face, but they look somewhat off when coupled with a helmet. I found these goggles to be much more stylish over a beanie.
I'm also not so sure why Smith are keeping this product after launching the I/0 7 last year, along with the existing I/0X and S.

To keep it short:

Pros:

-Fits well on smaller faces
-Lightweight
-Looks good
-Super easy interchangeable lens
-Great Quick release strap

Cons:

-Lens gets scratched easily (I received mine with the blue sensor mirror with a small scratch right out of the box). Changed to the Red SolX Mirror and it got scratches after 1 day on the slopes... knowing that I take care of my gear.
-Limited field of view from all sides... Had to take a guess every time I reached for the chest pocket on my jacket.
-Fogged from day 1
-Foam padding is not very comfortable on my face.

Well I love this pillow! It's even more comfortable then the pillow on my bed! Since I prioritize sleeping comfort over anything else, I'm giving this pillow a well deserved 5 stars.

I picked the REM over the Thermarest compressible pillow because the REM can be quickly inflated/defleted to your licking.

It could be the most comfortable pillow out there, but would definitely need to be compressed with a compression bag to fit with the rest of my gear. Bought the Large version.

I wish I had bought more Merino sweaters over the years.
This is in fact my first Merino sweater. I wore it on Christmas eve, and I absolutely love it's softness and comfort.

Although a bit overpriced, I strongly recommend this item for your everyday use, and even special occasions, or as a gift.

Fits me awesomely, couldn't really wish for a better sweater!
