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

I love this suit. I just ordered my 4th one - but there's the problem. The thing is built like crap. The seams fall apart, it rips very easily, the Velcro comes off. The only reason I buy these is because Backcountry stands behind them (Airblaster won't - they know it's cheap). But enough ranting, here's what I love:

Very waterproof / windproof
Boot gaiters and wrist gaiters
Mesh vents
Zippers don't leak
Hood fits over helmet
Non-insulated (easy to layer beneath)
Tons of pockets
Middle zipper rarely breaks and allows easy access (bathroom)
Convenient front pass pocket (window sort of sucks though)
BTW: I'm 6'3" 175 lbs and I like the XL. Large works but it gets tight on the shoulders when sitting down sometimes (it's a 1 piece problem)

These would get 5 stars from me were it not for the strap placement on the hips. They will kill you if you try and cinch down your hip strap over them while backpacking. Otherwise, these are cool, light, durable, and dry super fast. I've backpacked in them, snorkeled, crossed rivers, and caught them on a few twigs and branches, no rips yet. They look great as casual wear too.
