Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used this bag for several years now. It's still in like new condition! It will last as long as you care for it...like any down product.

This bag is pretty toasty if you're even a borderline warm sleeper. I tend to sleep hot, and have used this bag fully unzipped in upper 20s temps with just silk weight baselayers. The hood is definitely a little claustrophobic as mentioned in a previous reviews. Most nights I use it as some extra pillow fluff, and sleep with a light beanie/buff on.

The bag is fairly packable for a 15 deg. bag. I tend to just stuff it in my pack with a liner to fill in empty spaces.

Overall, a very good bag. I got mine on sale about 2yrs ago. Not sure I would pay nearly $400 for one, but I've been very satisfied with my purchase.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These are a really fun set of skis. Definitely lightweight. Turn initiation is almost effortless. Really easy to cruise through tight spots (trees, ridgeline runs). Stable a high speeds, and rip on groomers. Haven't had a chance to use these on soft snow yet. But, for spring conditions and hard pack they're really nice.
