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

As opposed to Wasangelian I have not had any problems with mine. I have not used them much, but they fit into a small nitch. If I need something that climbs well (ie better than a normal duckbill tele boot) but where the descent it not technical enough to justify my AT set up, these fit perfectly with the tele tech binding system. I have done one or two longish backcountry tours with some steep climbing and mellow skiing and a few resort days.

The boots seem more voluminous and bulky than my Scarpa T2s, but the liner from my T2 fits into these so it's a good process to transition from one boot to another.

They accept BD Neve crampons well.

i got the regular size (for when I'm not climbing) and the small (for when I'm climbing). First night (using the small): open bivy at 8k feet, 15 degrees out, no wind, clear skies, 30 degree bag, ropes and ski boot liners for my lower body and I was perfectly warm. pad rolls up into nothing, is so warm you can downgrade your sleeping bag like mad, and go SUPER lightweight for climbing. The sound might bother some people, but who cares when its the warmest, lightest, and most compact pad on the market.

These boots are as good as it gets. They have a removable plastic tongue for making the skin up easier, and you can pop it right in if you need the extra downhill support. I personally don't ever need the tongue, so its an instant transition at the top. They also climb ice incredibly well. If you can find a pair of these in your size, do yourself a favor and buy them, they will be the last boots you will ever need to buy.

These gloves are incredible. The dexterity is better than any other severe weather glove, you can pull the liner out and replace it with a heavier or lighter liner and still keep the shell, you can go without any liner for those hot spring days. They are super expensive, but they are so versatile its almost the only glove you need in your arsenal.

This rope is great. I got the 80M for ski mountaineering to use as a single to ski-belay and its long enough to double when I need it for vertical travel and rappels. I liked it so much I bought a second one and use it for wondering multi-pitch rock, with good rope management your able to string together really long pitches. I will say that it has gotten super dirty, haven't washed it yet, but that may be a by-product of its skinny diameter.
