Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These gloves have not only been one of my favorite gloves but were fighting for the title of favorite piece of gear ever. They're extremely lightweight and waterproof, and I found them plenty warm for Sierra adventures.
Then one day I washed them. The liner came out and I literally spent hours getting them back in. Even then they didn't quite feel the same. On my next tour when I pulled my hands out the liners came out with them (this didn't happen before the washing). At this point I couldn't deal so I cut the liners out. There are actually two liners, one fleece and one sort of latex-like membrane, and that's why you can't get the liners back in after washing.
So, in short, buy these gloves but only wash them by hand and hang dry them.
I would say they are fairly true to size but with longish fingers.

I bought the wayback pack and so far i love it. the basic idea to keep snow off the back is great. i can fit my helmet in the main compartment (with goggles and contourhd still attached) while skins, shovel,probe and more are in the back. even so it's easy to wear while riding a chair. it's only downside is the lack of a shoulder strap hydration tube path.
i still haven't figured out how to use the diagonal ski carry system (at least correctly). The obvious yellow straps aren't wide enough for my skis, which are big, but not giant.
i have attached them diagonally from the lower compression strap to the upper with some success, but i highly doubt that's how it was designed. Does anyone have any pictures of skis being carried diagonally.
Thanks
