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

I've only used Pearl Izumi and Endura socks in the past and while they are both quality products, these socks are top quality. I wore them on a 45-50 degree, morning ride in the mountains in Central Washington and never got cold feet, yet I never got sweaty feet either. After 2.5 hours of riding I had no hot-spots or rubbing of any sort. I really like the length, and don't think they're short at all. It's the perfect mid-point between those low-cut, ankle socks and the roadie-looking over the calf socks that seem to have gained in popularity in recent years. They're a bit pricey, but you do pay for what you get.

I skied in these pants in the PNW for approximately 20 days this season and they never let me down. Wore them in dumping snow, pissing rain, and on a few bluebird days and they took it all in stride. No soaking through when wet, no sweating when it was warmer out (40-50 F), and not super heavy for being waterproof. On colder days I never felt that I needed a base layer. I'm 5'8, 160 with a 30" inseam. The mediums fit me about as well, if not better than any pant I tried (Columbia, Mtn Hardwear, OR, North Face). The crotch is a little low if you don't wear the pants at or near your navel, but I skied in them from open til close many days and never had a rip or a performance issue. The waist is adjustable and once you find your sweet spot, they're staying there. The upper legs are bigger than most pants, which is good for some, not so good for others. I have sprinters quads so these worked well for me. For reference, the Columbias were horribly tight for me in this area. I don't think they fit as well as Outdoor Research Axcess pant but for roughly half the price, the Snowshot is a killer piece of gear.
