Familiarity: I've used it several times

If you are a fan of the original impacts, then you'll like these. The impact pros are effectively a streamlined version of the originals. So far, they've offered all of the same protection and perfect amount of grip that sold me on the original impacts but in a lighter, more modernized package. I've already had the pleasure of kicking a few loose rocks while wearing these and my feet are no worse off. And, I feel much more connected to the pedals with the pros than I did in the original impacts. These articulate just a hair more and it is a noticeable improvement.

Fit is on point. I have a D/E width foot that does not fit super well into most of the recent offerings from five ten, but these have been superb. Toe box has plenty of room and heel hold is great. They still run 1/2 to 1 size small I'd say - I'm size 11 in most shoes and I went with a 12 in the pros. They fit very different from the brick-shaped VXi (which for me is a good thing), and construction is seemingly much better as well.

All in all this has been a great shoe that I'll be using for everything from XC to DH riding.

It's a large bag that holds a lot of stuff, but that's pretty much where it stops. I purchased this bag based on waterproof/resistant claims, and since have been disappointed.

Stuffed full of camping gear, clothing for a wedding, work laptop and documents, I tossed the bag in the back of my pickup. Rain was in the forecast but I wasn't worried, as I'd purchased this bag in particular for peace of mind that my things would be kept safe and dry in the event of the unexpected. It began raining shortly into my drive, and I figured no big deal - this is why I bought the black hole bag.

After about an hour of driving in light rain, I arrived at my destination and began to unpack. Turns out, most of my things within the black hole bag were much wetter than expected. This includes my work pc, which I now have the pleasure of replacing.

Perhaps I ended up with a lemon, but either way I'm not very happy.

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

These tires grip wonderfully, for a single day. The problem lies within the side-knobs, which tend to rip off after a few hours of use, equating to absolutely zero support when laid over in a turn, and zero grip. Since I cannot feasibly fork out $180 for new tires every single ride, the Dampfs are not an option for me.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been biking with this pack around Utah for ~2 years now, and it's still solid. I toss it around quite a bit, and have only observed some slight wear-and-tear around the zippers. Perfect for short excursions around the Wasatch , but falls just short for longer days in the desert - my next purchase will be the larger version (Raptor 10/14 etc).

Lightweight, powerful brake which has been more than enough for All-Mountain riding to laps in the park to full on DH. They do require a little more attention (even more so than the standard x0's), but have stood up to plenty of abuse and I have no complaints otherwise.
