Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

This my go to Clava for cold mountaineering trips. Gore WS protects my face when the howling wind kicks up. I love the "on the fly" feature, or how I don't have to slip it over my head like other Clava's. The velcro front, which includes one over your mouth and one over the nose, can be put on or off rather quickly. Fit is very secure. Great to carry for the alpine. 5 star all the way.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

i bought this jacket concurrently with the Rab Baltoro Guide jacket and compared both in size medium. the Baltoro is a much better jacket and i returned the Avers. the Avers is very tight and binding, the length is short and did not perform, the bottom runs up when i lift up my arms, the result of not having articulation in the elbow or underarms, the zipper snags at the bottom, no inside pockets, no wired peak. when zipped all the way up, the zipper comes inward at the throat area when i tilted my head down, creating a choking feeling. of most concern to me was the Powershield material on the Avers. the Powershield fleece inside the Baltoro is honeycomb, which makes it breathable and lighter. even though both jackets were Powershield, the Avers was solid fleece and was much heavier, which was very very hot, wet and muggy. overall, the Avers fell short on every level.
