Got a pair of these for hikes in colder weather. I've only used them once but they worked great. Used them on a snowshoe / snow shelter trip. The weather was a little warm for building snow shelters, but the melty snow just ran right off these pants so I was kept nice and dry. They were also breathing really well so I didn't get hot & sweaty while I was digging in the snow. Once the sun set and the temperature dropped I added some long johns and stayed nice and toasty.

My highlights: they fit really well (not too baggy or too tight), breath great & keep me dry. Really happy I got these and can't wait to use them some more.

This is a solid jacket. Keeps me warm through the Seattle winters (lows in the 30's) and keeps decently dry in the drizzle. Very light weight, great for hiking in cooler weather. I got a Medium and am 5'5, 125 pounds. It fits well with some extra room around the torso. My only complaint is that it's a bit short in the waist.

I've had this jacket for a few weeks now and am still blown away by just how light & warm it is. It weighs virtually nothing and has provided me with more than enough warmth. I've only worn it down to ~20s, but just wearing a t-shirt and the jacket, I was plenty warm. I've worn it around town in the rain a few times, but not long enough for the water to soak through. It's done fine in the rain but since it's down...I won't push my luck.

I'm a skinny 5'11" and the medium is a great fit.

I've had this jacket for a few years now and I love it. It's definitely not a real cold-weather jacket...if it were real cold out you'd want to layer a sweater or fleece underneath it. I use it mostly around town. It's pretty heavy for the amount of cold / rain protection it offers (minus 1 star) but is great for those gray rainy days in the 30s - 40s (which here in Seattle is pretty much every day). I also use this skiing under my hard shell. The combination of the two work great down into the 20s.
