Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

...but I just can't get over the "bike seat" shape on the backside. I tried these on and fell in love immediately, until I checked out my own rear end in the mirror. I understand the mobility needs and the reinforced seat area, but it just looks too much like padded bike shorts to wear to work. Could just be me, and to each their own. I wanted so terribly to buy these but just couldn't get past that 'pad' on the back. Try them on and see for yourself though, I seem to be in the minority here but I'm not sure how. Also, it looks like they addressed this for a newer version, so make sure you look at pics closely. I have both 511 and 504 commuter jeans that I love, hoping the new rear end on these trousers is improved.

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

A lot of thought went into this jacket, and its really well built. Many subtle technical details, and some not so subtle (i.e. air vent along top of back). Slightly longer sleeves, slightly longer tail... all ideal for riding. Beware of the sizing though: The size chart says Levi's "Jackets" M=41-44 chest, however its definitely more in line with the Levi's "Tops" sizing which is a more standard M=38-40 chest. Plus its a slimmer fit. I'm 6' 180lbs, slightly broader shoulders and wear a 40L jacket, I bought the medium based on the size chart but am exchanging for the large. Otherwise for the sale price on this site its a worthy investment. Only difference I could tell from the newer version of this jacket is that the back pockets have a more hidden side zipper access vs the flaps on this jacket, but is that worth $100? Jacket feels like it will wear well with age too.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love the bag. Fits loads of gear/clothes/shoes/beer/wine/whatever you pack. Zippers work flawlessly. Bag is lightweight and folds flat. Mine came with a removable lightweight hard plastic liner to keep the load flat, which was helpful. ONLY COMPLAINT: the stock shoulder straps are not really suited for carrying as a backpack, which I wanted to do. Bought replacement straps and it worked like a charm. Used this as only bag for 12 day trip to Spain/Morocco and it was perfect. Plus plenty of week-long or weekend trips in between. Even when packed full, if you leave one of the two side compartments empty it will fit PERFECTLY in the overhead compartment of a 737. Small Colorado based operation. Buy this bag. 5 starts if they fix the shoulder straps.
