Well I just received these about a couple of hours ago and I wanted to give my first impressions. I have a narrow, high arch foot and these fit great! Nice and snug fit without forefoot slop. Overall the boots fit my narrow foot really well, the boots seem very well constructed. Now on to my concerns. The boots are not very rigid like I am used to with backpacking boots. I have always worn the Lowa Tibet pro and Asolo PowerMatic 200 boots for backpacking and these Arc'teryx feel like sneakers compared to those boots. I can easily pick them up and bend them in half. But The main reason I got these boots was to try a lighter boot for backpacking, I just was not expecting such a difference. I will find out about stability in a few days on my first trip with them. My main concern comes down to the use of EVA as the cushioning in the midsole. Historically EVA cushioning is used in less expensive boots and the cushioning breaks down much faster than PU. Asolo, Lowa, Scarpa, etc... all use PU in the midsole of their nicer boots and EVA in their cheaper boots. EVA cushioned boots I have had in the past the cushioning was great in the sole but it blew out before I wore the sole out(less than a year of almost daily use). For this price the EVA better last at least two years or until I wear the sole out.

RUNS SMALL - at least 2 sizes! I checked to make sure I didn't order a girls size by mistake. Fabric is really thin and looks/feels more like swimsuit.

I love this hat. With having a small head I find it hard to find hats that fit without having inches of leftover Velcro to deal with. I usually pin it down to the hat but that makes taking the hat on and off more difficult because I wear a ponytail. The way this hat adjusts is perfect. The draw cord blended in with my ponytail and never got tangled with my hair(my initial concern before wearing). The fabric is thin and very breathable in the Florida heat and humidity. I will be getting other colors.

This is it. The best baselayer I've found so far. I've looked through baselayer after baselayer trying to find something to please my picky wife. We tried others like Patagonia Capilene, Smartwool Merino Wool - and nothing compares to the comfort, smoothness, and fit of these baselayers. Everything else was too itchy or fit her too oddly. Not the cheapest option, but the layer you put closest to your skin is very important so that you can have a long, happy chafe-free day. I've been using Patagonia Capilene for years, but ordered these for myself as well and I'm not looking back. Overall, very satisfied with the purchase.

I purchased these shoes for a trip to Iceland, where I needed footwear that was waterproof, durable, and could handle the rough volcanic terrain. The fit is awesome; I can adjust the lacing to accommodate lightweight running socks or mid-weight trekking socks. They are slightly longer than shoes of the same size, but not by much, so no need to size down. The treads have incredible grip and can navigate sharp rocky terrain or smear up outcrops. My feet were dry and comfortable, in chilly temps and in warm temps. I also paired them with leggings and an athletic skirt in Reykjavik, so I had no need to bring a second pair of shoes.

I had the black one for a while and just bought cayenne. Love the way zippers are positioned, water resistant fabric, water resistant zippers. This is not a giant backpack shown on model in photo, it is about half that in proportion shown, so on a female 5'2" small frame, it is a perfect smaller size for day to day, biking, hiking, climbing and weights nearly nothing. I used to be a fan of Osprey, the whistle buckle, lightweight, adjustable sizes, and lots of pockets. But past couple years they stopped using sweat-resistant quick dry backing, and only make regular mesh and fabric feel absorbent type foam that does not dry well. I walk/hike a lot, so it is a deal breaker for a bag to not dry fast. This little bag however is water resistant, yes in 90+F weather any bag gets sweaty, but you take it off, wipe it down or air dry a minute and it is dry and ready! No cushion on the back means faster dry and lighter weight. Also while shoulder straps are not cushioned, I found that they are more durable (in Ospreys internal shoulder strap cushion would usually wear off, rip at the load bearing top seam internally and disintegrate. You could feel fabric barely holding together once cushion separates). Top loading pocket is very easy to access, circular full opening is the best, so that you are not ripping your hands open over zippers and velcro while trying to squeeze to reach inside a pocket. Sure, you might need a sleeve for a laptop to cushion it if you are paranoid and or plan to toss the bag around a lot, but I did not find need to bring a sleeve, it's extra weight if all you do is walk with it and use common sense. One con, wish hip strap was removable, but I tightened it on a side for most times unless I need support, and it does not bother me. So all in all, best daypack for me!

I bought this hat because I needed one that I could wash it I got it dirty and I needed sun and bug protection. It is very good and does the job. I have a largish head so got the large size. It is a little loose, but not super loose for me.

I have never owned a shirt that wrinkles this incredibly bad. Astounding really. Love Arc'teryx brand and have a few other shirts. I would return this if I hadn't removed the tags and washed it. Only buy this if you love to iron your clothes. I do not.

Great belt! I use it under my duty belt. Would be 5 stars across the board if I didn't have to use two hands to put it on, but knew that would be the case before I purchased it.

It's a nice belt but hard to adjust. Once you have the tightness as you want it, threading the tail through the other part of the buckle tends to mess up the tightness you wanted. One can work through it, of course, but I don't have the patience to mess with it every time I put on the belt.

Tried this short on in a size 4 and it was just a bit too tight on my backside (those squats must be working!) so returned for a size 6. Fortunately the size 6 fits my but but leaves a gap around my waist. I love the cut, color and style of these shorts and wish I could make them work. However, I can tell that when I use these for hiking or anything active they will get annoying as the waist will rub and cause sore spots.

This is a highly technical small backpack with excellent craftsmanship. It's ultralight for throwing into a larger pack or travel luggage (stuffed smartly into its own front pocket), but it's also quite sturdy. After months of use, you'll likely see next to no wear. In rainy places, which Colorado is this year, this pack isn't fully waterproof (though the zippers come close), but it's highly water resistant. You couldn't use it as a dry bag, but you don't need a pack cover for it either. Be aware that it doesn't have a padded back panel, so careful packing is required. Or do what I do if I'm carrying pointy objects (shoes, water bottles, and the like) and stick in a random piece of quarter-inch closed-cell foam cut to fit. Shoulder straps are high-count flat webbing -- the good stuff -- but this pack is surprisingly comfortable and carries well, even on one shoulder (important, as the back is solid nylon, not spacer mesh, and can get sweaty on hot days). The webbing waist belt is on the shortish side and would comfortably fit up to maybe a 36-inch waist or thereabouts. Personally, I don't find much use for it unless I'm running, when it helps stabilize the pack. And I don't often use the clever strip of plastic and webbing that serves as a gear rack, but you can clip a lot of carabiners onto it, or even carry an ice axe, if you have the need. I'd like to see some different colors one day -- something between standard black (always a fave, but it's hard to see what you have in there 'cause it's so dark) and over-the-top neon (highly visible, but sometimes too visible during international travel when you don't want to stick out as a tourist). Gray? Navy blue, anybody? Also, a slightly larger version -- maybe 25 liters -- in a similar style and shape would be appreciated, and more useful as an ultralight extended-travel pack. I know there's a Cierzo 25, but it's a top-loader with a top pocket; totally different creature. But instead of dwelling on what I can't have, I appreciate what I can: A terrific, sturdy small pack for a multitude of tasks.

These pants are extremely comfortable and the cut is very flattering. The inseam may be a little shorter than 32 and they fit a little large: I bought two pairs in "Luna": one size 4 for anytime and one size 2 for work (yes, they look good enough for work!). Perfect.

They sent the wrong shirt. Looked the same but not the same materials and cheaper. Very unhappy about this and watch out for this may be a scam.

I'm amazed how waterproof it is. Probably better to get a rain jacket but I didn't feel wet and it dried off quickly once inside. Long in the sleeves but I'm under 5'4" but I had no trouble rolling the cuff and it stays.

These boots are so different. I was really excited to try these boots because Arcteryx is a great brand, the boots were very lightweight, and I was intrigued by the modular concept with the inserts. My intent was to use them for backpacking and hunting with up to a 70lb pack for 3-5 days. I was also interested in using them as day hikers between 8-25 miles over rough terrain. When I pulled them out of the box my first reaction was that they looked very cool and very "Arcteryxy" and I said a silent prayer that they would fit well because they were so light compared to other stuff I was trying on (Scarpa Kinesis & SL Activ & Lowa Tibet GTX). I slid my foot my foot into the neoprene-like bootie and my sock got a little bunched up and it felt a little tight and awkward going through the cuff -- I had a flash forward moment to stepping out of my tent on a cold morning and trying to get into these boots and having a hard time because they were sort of frozen (like boots tend to get in the mountains when left in the vestibule of the tent). Anyway, I tried putting the boots on and off a few times and I got better at it each time. After 3-4 times of simply putting them on, they felt really good. Still, it was weird to have to practice putting them on a few times. Next I laced them up -- just like I do my Hanwag Alaska GTX boots I'm replacing. What I found is that these boots require quite a bit more thought when lacing because the laminate material doesn't really give or stretch. This means it is easy to get a tight spot on one where one of the laces criss cross. Again, with some practice and different lacing techniques I was able to get it so they felt pretty good. Between lacing sessions i walked them up and down a flight of stairs. I found them to have some weird laminate bending-folding thing going on near the joint of where my big toe joins my foot. This made me nervous. I'd heard you could remove the bootie liner, but I couldn't do it. It sure felt glued in there to me. i was also a little nervous about the amount of dirt and crud that might get between the bootie and the exterior shell. The best feature of the boot is the foot bed. It produced the best feel I've ever had on a boot -- by a long shot. It literally cradled my foot and I could envision myself going miles and miles in it. Interestingly I found it very stable as far as side-to-side and torsional analysis, but not very stiff from the ball of the foot forward. It was like it had a 3/4 rand and it needed a full rand or a full rand with a bit of flex around the toe. I actually thought a different flex would have solved the kinking sensation with the laminate so many others have described. I think these would be good for backpacking with less than 30 lbs, but I wouldn't trust them to more than that right now. I would trust them for side hilling off trail -- I think they would provide a good "bite." The rubber on the soles seemed superior in terms of grip and comfort. I did wonder how long it would last. In the end, I'm sending these back. I think Arcteryx is going to get these figured out. These boots have a lot of promise.

I have been wanting a headband for colder weather hiking, and I finally purchased this one. Other reviewers mentioned that it was tight. I liked that it felt snug on my head. It did shift throughout the day, slowly sliding back off of my ears, but nothing that would deter me from wearing it again. I wore it for an entire weekend camping and hiking in the mountains. My only complaint (besides the shifting/sliding) was the fact that it was rather tight on my ear cartilage after wearing all day long. All in all I really like this headband and am happy that I finally have something to keep my ears warm when I am outside in colder weather (and the bonus of keeping my hair back too!).

These are incredibly comfortable and provide amazing grip ascending and descending on every surface I've tried, including rock, wet and dry dirt trails and gravel. Due to their all-synthetic materials I was concerned they might get hot, but that hasn't been an issue. The construction allows your feet to breathe and stay cool. In short these are far superior to every other hiking shoes I've owned.

I'm tall, thin, and have a hard time finding shirts that fit well -- with long enough sleeves, yet not too large around the torso. Arc'teryx micro-fiber shirts fit me very well. I also love the fabric and the fact in comes in different weights. Holds its shape and length well after repeated washings. Excellent product.

I absolutely love these pants. They are the perfect easy, breezy summer pants that can either be dressed up or played down. Now my big issue is whether I make room in the budget for a second pair - I am seriously tempted!
