Fit: True to size
Height: 6'
Weight: 165 lbs
Size Purchased: 32

The fit, stretch, pockets and look are spectacular. But these got a giant tear in the butt on my first mountain bike ride ---
heard about that trail ripping me a new one all day from my buddies. For trail running and bouldering they seem tough enough, but not for backpacking, aggressive climbing or mtb duty. (They did patch up well with Gear Aid Tenacious Max Flex tape.)

The best thing about these gloves is how versatile they are. They work for any winter active pursuit. The back is windproof and quite warm, while the palm is very breathable. Whether I'm running, fat biking or walking to/from work, they adapt. When it's 15-35, I close my fists and they keep my hands warm. When it's warmer or I'm working up a sweat, I open my hands flat, and they breathe like champs. They also work exceptionally well with a touchscreen --- even better than my super thin merino North Face gloves.

In brief: Cozy and cool for light, casual use. Expect cold wet feet for anything remotely beyond that.

I got these boots to wear around town, walking to/from work and short hikes in the snow, rain and cold. For those purposes, they are fine and I do love the look. But calling these boots waterproof is absurd. The exposed foam soles and ankles soak up moisture and funnel it into the boot when flexed. On a recent hike in very light rain the boots soaked through in about an hour to the point that I had to wring out my socks and the insoles. The boots then completely soaked a change of dry socks in a matter of steps. With each step the foam squished water into the boot. I resigned myself to water-logged feet for the rest of my 2-day trip and wishing I'd worn my goretex trail runners instead.
