Our child Natalie has a massive head. I'm not kidding, I mean massive. She's in the 90th percentile for a 12 month old. So I was disappointed that the hat was way too large. I guess I should have guessed but some sizing information for something comes in only one size probably would have helped avoid a return on this one.

Patagonia is my outdoor brand. I have so many piece of Patagonia, I've lost count. My life moto is "he who dies with the most Patagonia wins." As such, with great disappointment, I must say that I cannot recommend this product.

I found the gloves true to size and warm. However I have a number of gripes:

1. They aren't cut to fit a hand. Most good gloves aren't two flat pieces of fabric sewn together in the shape of a cartoon hand. The finger curve and the back of the body has volume. These are cartoon hand gloves.
2. Because of the poor cut, I have no dexterity in these gloves. I have better ski gloves for manipulating things.
3. These gloves don't breathe. I get sweaty hands, which means they eventually get cold.

I just tried out my wife's pair with two different pairs of AT boots and a pair of alpine ski boots. No good. I think a low-profile snowboard boot would work, but the front with buckles on the hard shell boots significantly impaired the movement of the boots.

I've been using these boots for the past few weeks in serious snow conditions for 3-4 hour durations. My feet are dry and warm and I love the boots. There was little to no break in period for these puppies; they've just worked great out of the box. I've been super happy with the purchase decision. I've yet to take these backpacking because I'm not much of a winter backpacker, but I totally recommend them as day hikers and haven't had any issues with ankle stability yet.
