Arc’teryx Acrux FL Review

ArcAmphi#1After spending some time on the trail and rocks with the Acrux Fl from Arc’teryx, the shoe unveiled itself to be excellent on a few different fronts.

As an approach shoe it’s a standout. The upper is comprised of polyurethane coated nylon yarns, then layered with two coats of thermoplastic polyurethane film. This laminate proved to protect my feet extremely well. I liken it to having my foot surrounded by a bumper, just dinging off of rock like it’s barely there. The film adds a high layer of abrasion resistance keeping the shoe itself well protected.

The midsole is comprised of injected EVA providing solid stability with high impact resistance. I found this platform to be a nice and solid while jamming and climbing rock. The Vibram Megagrip outsole has a nice clean edging zone that provided reliable hold on almost any surface. The toe box is very well protected with a solid rubber bumper never leaving my foot feeling pinched but only well protected.

As a hiking shoe the Acrux has some solid benefits as well. The stacked EVA in the heel provided a nice degree of cushioning for those long descents. The spherical heal shape allowed for the best braking I’ve ever had in a shoe. The Vibram Megagrip compound excels on the trail as well providing solid hold on loose and dry gravel. This is a stiff shoe, and the upper construction does such a nice job holding you in laterally that I wouldn’t hesitate to use this shoe for backpacking as well.

The Acrux Fl is a well-rounded approach and hiking shoe. The one-piece laminated upper is completely seamless providing one of the cleanest feeling shoes I’ve ever worn. The stretch monomesh Adaptive Fit liner forms to the foot for an exceptional fit with no pressure points. Highly air permeable, it delivers the ventilation required for long days in warm, dry conditions.

    ome people, especially those running on busy daily schedules tend to use the pills to help maintain weight since they can not afford to follow all the diet programs. This is not advised. It is recommended that one seek advice from a professional in this field before using the pills. This can save one from many dangers associated with the misuse.

    The diet pills should always be taken whole. Some people tend to divide the pills to serve a longer period of time. This is not advised and can lead to ineffectiveness. If it is required that one takes a complete tablet, it means that a certain amount of the ingredients are required to achieve the desired goal. It is also recommended that one does not crush the pill and dissolve it in beverages. Chemicals found in beverages have the potential of neutralizing the desired nutrients in the pill thereby leading to ineffectiveness. The best way to take the tablets is swallowing them whole with a glass of water.
