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

First impressions after a few rides. I normally wear Sidi Dominator 44 mega and the Lake 44 wides are an identical fit. The shoe did not get wet after stepping down multiple times in wet snow ( unlike my sidi's) and were warm when pedaling. However, my feet did get cold (17F) on the down hill sections (which were pretty long, face got frosty too). I think some chemical toe warmers will help this next time. But each time I started pedaling back uphill they warmed up. The lacing system is awesome, I was initially worried about this. They are not bulky and are super comfy, I basically do not know they are there. I tried the Sidi Diablo's and did not like them. Would highly recommend the lakes for cold/wet trail riding in the snow.

I didn't want to spend nearly 2X as much on a 1500 or 2000 lumen light and decided to try the 500 lumen version. After a few rides in the snow at night (fat bike) I am super impressed with how bright it is. Granted the reflective surface of the snow probably helps quite a bit so I am looking forward to summer to test out how it does in a more light absorbing environment. With that said, I feel like I can rally pretty much everything at speed and not hold back because of limited vision. I have the light mounted on my helmet with the included mount and keep the battery in the back of my shirt. I have a long torso and the cord is just long enough and does not hinder movement. It is so light that I don't even know its there. I wish it came with a tether for the cord on the back of my helmet but I just rigged it with a zip tie. Have not truly tested battery life yet but am happy with my purchase.

I can't go any where without sunglasses even on cloudy days. I have the mahogany polar chromic copper and love these glasses. They filter the light nicely to where I can see as comfortably on sunny bluebird days as on cloudy ones. I wear them all the time around town and depending on the day on the mtb trails and all the time in BC touring. The storage case they come with is great for shoving them in the pack. I recommend!
