Like others mine started leaking at the quick disconnect in less than 2 weeks. Nothing like taking a change of clothes out of the pack only to have them soaking wet and stained from a sports drink. It tooks several emails and 2 weeks before any a Camelbak finally got back to me and they said to send it in - at my expense. Well, that was two weeks ago and I haven't heard back from them yet; I'll be surprised if I do.
Anyways, the Antidote design is a good idea, but Camelbak has not executed it well. If I ever get mine back from them, it'll sit in a closet while I try to find one of the older, reliable bladders instead.
Love 'em. Do wish they had 1/2 sizes, but even so they are the absolute best gloves I've ever owned.
Update 04/11: Unfortunately I had to downgrade my rating on these. The gloves are still great, but after about 4-months the photo shows what mine look like. I had to tape up the holes in the fingers - and these are not seam tears, they're holes where the leather has worn through.
Snowboarders BEWARE - these are not binding friendly. I ride about 80-days a season and the outer shell has not held up to getting in and out of my bindings (they've lasted maybe 50-days).
My hands still stay way warmer than in any other glove I've owned and they've lasted as long (if not longer) than any other, but for the price I was hoping to make it through the whole season. Crazy, but I'm still going to continue to use them because they function so well.
The boot is not as stiff as the T1, but still on the high-end. Very comfortable, although the stock footbed is a little hard, so replace it. Put your foot in, couple of twists and you're on the hill -- who could ask for more.
On the hill, response is great in the backcountry powder and the resort groomers.
Loved the boots -- off the groomers -- phenomenal in the powder. The response was the best, but beware, because of the stiffness, they love going fast. Sadly, after using them on the hill for a week, they were way too stiff for me and I ended up returning them. With going 60+ days a year I needed something for the days I spend entirely in the resort boundaries.
If you're looking for an ultra-stiff, max-response boot, these are definitely the best.
Got last years model and they are the SHIT!!! alright -- didn't even get 30-days in before they just started falling apart. I average 60-days a year and used Burton Freestyles for 3-years before 'upgrading' to these - what a mistake.
* All the fabric has disintegrated -- on the leanbacks and ankle straps
* The foam on the baseplate is all peeling and lifting
* The toeramps won't stay
* The ankle straps are shredded; I have them held together with electrical tape.
* The ratchets mad-stick.
And the support is lacking (to say the least). Sent an email for warranty, even included pictures. Got a quick response, but ultimately it was 4-weeks before I got PARTS; ankle and toe straps, ratchets and toes ramps. So now I get to put them together -- what crap!!!
