Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These wheels are a great value! Perfect internal width for large tires. The most impressive thing to me was how easy they were to set up tubeless. I had read other reviews of earlier models being a bit of a pain. I taped up the rim using the supplied tape slipped on a Maxxis High Roller II and was able to seat the tire with a hand pump easily WITHOUT sealant!! The tire was pretty out of shape from storage so I left the tire on the rim for a bit to let it get its shape back. Then I released the air and added sealant and they havent lost any air over a few days, but even without sealant whey were holding air better than the previous wheels I had. Well done Mercury! At around $320 shipped there is no better deal for a full boost wheelset with XD driver. Trust me I looked. I'll update as I get more riding on them.

I‘ve had these pants as work pants and general every day pants for at least a year now. I’ve worn them hundreds of times and the actual pants themselves are hanging in great. The material is tough and withstands tears very well. The cuffs are the most worn. Overall the pants hold up great and “patina” well in the wash. My greatest issue with these pants is the pockets. They were torn to shreds in the first month! The right pocket that I keep my wallet in now has a hole at the pitting that I can fit 4 fingers through. The left pocket has a two finger hole near the top. For pants made of such resilient material I expected the pockets to be able to handle some use! The first tear was in the left pocket where I kept my small light. I believe that the material in the pockets is very susceptible to abrasion from objects in the pockets. Honestly the pockets are the only thing keeping me from buying more pairs. That said if you don’t plan to wear these every day or don’t have “sharp” objects in your pockets you should definitely try a pair.
