Works great in the dry and loose stuff here in Arizona, absolutely one of the best tires of i have ever ridden. Doesn't seem to have the dead zones my previous ardent and ardent race tires had, these give you plenty of warning when you're near the limit.

These are downright the BEST shorts I have ever owned. full stop. climb, run, ride, go on dates you can do any thing in these AND be super comfortable and stylish. I seriously can't say enough good things. I'm Just slowly replacing all my shorts with different colors of these. I normally have problems finding shorts that fit without a belt or in general as a very athletic 6' 185 lbs normally the thighs are FAR too tight or the waist is too large. These have none of those problems.

Seemed comfortable at first and light ish give their size. Went on 3 hikes: the first I almost twisted my ankle the 2nd two i rolled my ankle hard two times PER hike, bad enough that it took a week plus to heal. This is not a problem with my trail runners and may have more to do with me and my ankles than the boots but either way do not buy these for stability! It took me too long to figure this out and am no longer eligible for a refund, off to eBay they go! Huge bummer as they seem great in every other way.

Fit being my pain problem @ an athletic 6ft 185 lbs where thighs never fit me, If it wasn't for the arc'teryx pants I ordered with these I would be using them. Their fit is nice if a little loose at the bottom. But the lack of a built in belt and slightly too loose of a waist means i would have to bring a belt with me on 100 mile hike which is just not going to happen. Order the size your order in your street pants.

They just don't fit well at all. I'm an athletic 185 and have trouble finding pants that fit both my waist and thighs. Either the waist is massive, the thigh fits and looks like im wearing bell bottoms or i'm wearing skinny jeans (with bell bottoms). Which is disappointing because Prana are the best fitting jeans for me but apparently that fit doesn't translate to their hiking pants.

Finally a pair of pants that doesn't fit like a sack and is stretchy enough to stay completely out of the way. I'm a very athletic 185 lbs and typically waists are far too large while the thighs are too tight. A medium in these pants fits perfectly in the waist, snug on the thighs and just loose enough the rest of the way down. Definitely nice enough looking for me to wear around town and stretchy enough even climbing in them works.

Best shell i have ever purchased and amazing for backcountry snowboarding. Super light with only the pocket you need (be honest with yourself) great hood and packs tiny tiny so bringing it Japan was amazing. The fit is great, i'm 6' 185 and fairly muscular usually where a medium in shirts and the large is perfect. Enough room inside i can fit a down jacket under it for extra warmth but not so huge there is material flying around everywhere. I suggest this jacket to everyone who asks, which is all the time. If only it wasnt so damned expensive for so little material.

Surprisingly light and once you get a hang of the lacing it is easy and fast ish to take on and off as well. Love the grip and they are super stiff. Being able to loosen the top strap to allow for longer strides is also super useful.

I bought these along with the rome guide and burton tourist and ended up picking these because of their stiffness, comfort and light weight. I would do it again in a heart beat. Great boot.

Sizing: i'm 6' 185' and fairly muscular, the large fit perfect around the shoulders without being super lose every where else. This fit is great for moving around without being baggy.

I run fairly hot so this jacket is a perfect outer layer down to 10-20 ish degrees. I took it to japan with me as my only jacket and a arcteryx shell for snowboarding. Couldn't have been happier with the combo. When the temps really started to drop on the mountain this was perfect as a mid layer.

The fact that it packs small was also HUGE on my one bag trip to japan for snowboard. All of my friends want one of these now and would likely have one if it wasnt for the price.

So good i tossed all my other socks in the donation bin and picked up a selection of these and the other ultra light run socks. These here are the ones with the extra padding on the bottom which can be great for longer hikes/walks/runs where the padding is worth it or you have minimal shoes. The other ultra lights are the same thickness everywhere and SUPER light, they are much cooler and better for those really sweaty days.

Everything smart wool makes i have bought so far is great so you can't go wrong either way. These were so good i dropped the dollars and replaced all my socks with them. I didn't need have as many because you can get away with wearing them for a couple of days at a time without the smell creeping in.

Great medium-small size, very bright interior (even on the xpac), perfectly sized internal pockets, huge tough zippers, sturdy feeling material. Little pricey but you get what you pay for. This is my new gym bag and i'm probably going to get another one as my gear bag for climbing.

Excellent fitting jacket that won't get in the way during backcountry skiing and should breath amazing, which should be a life saver as someone that runs super hot. I don't think vents do much of anything so the lack of them doesn't bother me in the slightest and is honestly just one less place to fail. i bought a medium and a large just in case but as others noted i should not have doubted the fit chart, it was dead on. ended up with a large and i'm an athletic build 6' 185lb guy.

thin, not a lot of insulation lots of stretch, pretty amazing jacket for the price. i'm about 185 lbs of athletic build and it is hard to find jackets that fit well around the shoulders/chest without pinching my arm pits, this one fits great in a size large and isn't silly loose (a challenge for me)
