So far I've enjoyed the first 100 miles of this shoe. I can't test on durability yet, but I don't see any troublesome signs of wear. Very lightweight for the protection it gives you. Ventilates really well. The soft foam lugs in the middle of the shoe seem pointless, but don't lower the quality of the shoe. The feel is definitely minimal. Your feet and calf strength need to be ready for the longer runs in these babies. The oddest thing about this shoe is that there is an awkward bump on the ball of the foot just below the pinky toes (i'm not sure what that part is called.) Anyway, that rise on the outside part of the foot felt uncomfortable in the shoe store and on pavement. Once on the trail, which is the only place this shoe should be run, it was a complete non issue. This 'lump' delayed my purchase, but I'm really glad I went for it. No regrets so far. I now have two pairs of Minimus (MT10s) and I endorse both.
I own this pair and the non thermal for the less 'biting' weather. Having these two pairs of warmers, I don't need to buy long sleeve jerseys in addition to the short sleeve jerseys that I already own. I save money and then I can stuff these in a back pocket instead of sweating the rest of the ride. Win win. I've got very skinny 34/35 length arms and the mediums suit me well.
Well...Its a synthetic hat for cool weather. Not much else to it. It fits well under a helmet. I give it 5 stars, not because there is something special to it, but because it does exactly what you would buy it for. My only complaint is that it doesn't completely cover my earlobes. Maybe my head is too big.
For $35 sale price, you can't get too picky. It is super comfortable. It should last quite a while. I'm a skinny and 6'1" and went for the medium. Fits great.
When I picked them up for the first time, they seemed too lightweight to be very warm. I was happy to find out that my judgments were grossly incorrect. These gloves block out the wind and cold and your fingers keep the other fingers warm. I haven't tested below 25 degrees yet. Southern Utah doesn't usually get that cold, but I think these gloves would still easily get the job done. Gear shifting takes a little getting used to, but it didn't bother me too much.
I thought they might be a little too bulky (especially since I usually run in Vibram Fivefingers) , but they are surprisingly light. I love the 'tonguless' feature. I do a lot of trail running in sand, gravel and small rocks. Most of it stays out of the shoes. Shoes are grippy. Girls runners complement the shnazzy look every time.
