These boots are fantastic. They are warm, stylish (confirmed by multiple compliments) and oh so comfortable, as I have come to expect from Merrell. There is none of this "I just have to wear them in" business with merrell - their shoes are awesome from the moment you put them on. I am sure they will last for ages as all merrell shoes are top quality.

Ordered my usual size 10 and they fitted perfectly, even with thick wool socks. I found the fit in the leg just fine, even with my jeans tucked into them. They were heavenly to put on after a long day on the slopes in ski boots!

Get them, you won't regret it!

Warm & waterproof. Wore a synthetic thermal & long-sleeve ice breaker under it in 4 degrees Celsius & snowing & never got cold. Lots of pockets are handy.
Got the azul/abyss/leapfrog colour as it was the only colour left in small... Shell is a nice blue but the liner colour is not the nicest green and thus my husband did not wear the liner on its own, which is obviously one of the features of a triclimate.
Aesthetics aside, he was very happy with the performance of the jacket.

These gloves are pretty good. They kept my hands warm enough, though my finger tips did get a touch cold on occasion (4 degrees celsius & snowing).

I ordered a large as per the sizing chart but found the finger tips too long and as they are pretty bulky, it made it a bit of a battle to get one on under my jacket when the other hand was gloved up. Tried wearing them over the jacket but that didn't work - looked odd and as they were too big, started slipping forward. They might have been better if they weren't too big but I might try a glove with a different wrist cuff next time (ie an adjustable cuff).
Clour matched really well with my deep purple kira triclimate jacket.

Pretty happy with these mitts, though they did get very wet on a couple of occasions. Despite this, our little guy never complained, so I guess they got wet towards the end of the day or his hands were warm despite the wet???
Used the sizing chart but found that these mitts run big. No big deal i guess - they will last a couple seasons but would have gone down a size had I known how big they would be.

Happy with the goggles, they are comfortable & the black iridium lenses were good in sunny weather and when it was snowing. I think I have a "normal" sized face - not big, not small, so I think they fitted fine with my one minor complaint being that the peripheral vision wasn't quite as good as I had hoped. My husband's A-frames had better peripheral vision. All in all I was happy with these and can't go past the fantastic prices from BC.

Really happy with this jacket. To say that I am a "novice skier" would probably be a very generous compliment from someone taking pity on me!!! I spent a heck of a lot of time sliding down the slopes in a tangle of skis & stocks but the good news, is that makes me well qualified to attest to how warm & waterproof this jacket was! Despite the amount of time I spent horizontal on the snow, I was never cold or wet. I wore a synthetic thermal & long-sleeve ice breaker top underneath in 4 degrees Celsius & at one point, unzipped the front to let some cool air in.

I am 5' 7", 135lb (173cm, 62kg) and ordered the deep purple in a small (the medium was sold out). It fit fine, though the medium would have been nice for the extra length but not essential.
The liner is warm, with a feminine cut and looked cute on its own with jeans après ski.

Plenty of pockets for credit card, goggles & my compact camera.

Only 3 things I would change - (1) the sleeve cuffs on the liner are quite tight, which keeps the wind out but means you can't get ski gloves under them - I wore my gloves over the liner but under the shell, which was a bit fiddly (2) when the liner is zipped into the shell, the powder skirt sits a bit weird and kinda pushed the jacket up, so I didn't bother with the powder skirt. (3) Jacket would have looked nicer if the light purple accents on the shell were white instead.

Despite those minor things, I am still really pleased with the purchase and would not hesitate to recommend this jacket to others.

Loved this jacket. The tawny colour looked tres chic when teamed up with the bright pink bugaboo pant and little miss was pretty pleased with the look too!
The jacket kept her warm & dry with plenty of skiing (and falling), snow angel fun & snow man building.
Sizing chart was spot on.
My only drawback was that the hood is not adjustable, so it tended to blow off every now & then but it didn't seem to bother missy.

Really happy with these pants. They kept our little miss dry & warm day in and day out. Plenty of snow angels, sitting down in snow and getting around on her knees while building a snow man but they stayed dry.
Adjustable waist is fantastic, making the suspenders unnecessary. No complaints about the pants from Missy, so assume they were comfortable too. Bought according to sizing chart - no issues.

Really happy with these pants. They kept me warm & dry. Wore them with just thermals underneath in 4degrees Celsius & snowing.
Comfortable fit and the adjustable waist tabs are handy too. Bought a medium, which I found true to size - they were a little big (which i was expecting) but the adjustable tabs ensured they stayed put on my hips. I am 5'7" & 136lb (173cm, 62kg).
My husband has the non-insulated men's freedom pant but had to wear thermals & a shell pant underneath.

These pants are super warm & very comfortable. I was slightly disappointed when I got them as I thought the fabric would kind of drape and hang off your hips but as they are a fleece, they are a bit more firm/slightly stiff. That said, they are still really comfy. For sweat pants, the fit is relatively flattering but I still wouldn't be overly keen to wear them outside the house.

I too found the sizing to run a bit big... I bought my usual TNF size (small) but should have gone for the XS. They have a drawstring around the waist, so I haven't bothered to exchange for the smaller size - they are fine for lounging around at home. I am 173cm (5ft 6), 62kg (136lb).

One of the side seams came undone near my hip on my 2nd wear, which surprised me but nothing a needle & thread couldn't fix.

Despite the slight disappointment of them being a bit more casual than I thought, I find myself diving into these as soon as I get home from a long day at work!

Love this jacket. It is light-weight & warm. It is longer in the back which ensures your lower back stays covered when sitting or bending over. It has a lovely, soft lining that is also in the hand pockets to keep your hands toasty warm. There is a hidden cuff on the sleeves which stops breezes going up your sleeves. The collar is a bit stiff and quite high which kind of gets in the way (near your jaw line) when sitting.

I got the Response Red which is bright but I love it. Bought the small, which I found true to size. I love the cut - it is ultra feminine, pulling in at the waist and not bulky anywhere. I am 173cm (5ft 6), 62kg (136lb).
