I purchased these shoes in early Jan of this year (2013) and the bottom of my right shoe is basically being torn to shreds. I have no issues with the other features of this shoe, but a little disappointed with the waffle walls being ripped apart. I ride ~2 times a week on these and have the Shimano Saint flats (pins are not too aggresive). When I first rcv'dthe shoes, they were grippy and held good. Now, starting to get slipage (very noticible on the right side). **Edit to add....the shoes may not be all that....but, Backcountry's Cust Service (as always) is AWESOME! Now riding in a pair of five ten freeriders**
The shorts are lightweight, wick away moisture very efficiently, are very comfortable with good style and very durable. They have become my go to warm weather shorts. If I had to ding anything, it would be the chamois, it's a little too lightweight and could stand to be a little more firm\dense (I gave em five star anyway). Would I buy another pair, hell yes. As a matter of fact, I have another pair in the cart right now ;-)
love the magnetic bite valve set up, works great. The pack sits real close to your body and feels like part of you..plenty of space for a days ride...the best thing, is the bladder. EZ to fill and low profile. I've used a Camelback Mule for years and the Viper has become my go to pack.
Bought two pairs of these to date and will probably buy another pair. The front thigh venting really works. The shorts move with you, not against you. Only wish the front pockets were a little deeper, but not a deal breaker by any means. Buy these shorts, you won't be disappointed!
