Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I own two pairs and alternate them daily during week long ski trips (no need to wash). The legless option means no issues with ski boots on the shins. They fit just below the knee, and my ski socks usually make up the difference. I have never had an issue with warmth. Only issue would be how your ski reacts to wool. These are very fine, but I have one friend who did not like the feel against his skin (hence the reason I now have two pairs). I highly recommend Ice Breaker to all my friends.

Rene, I am same height and 175 lbs. Skied 205 Volkls back in the day, was on Scott Aztecs for the past 9 years, and just spent a week at Snowbird on a new set of Bonafides 180. They handled the hard pack with ease and never had a case of the speed wobbles when ripping down the hill. Very easy to throw around in the moguls, and blasted through the crud. The rocker makes it easy to pivot 180 in very tight spots. If you see plenty of powder then go for the Cochise, otherwise I would recommend the Bonafide (if you can find it). It will serve you well in all conditions, will work in the powder with good technique, and fits the one quiver option well. I am typically locked into Xmas and spring break ski trips due to kids in school and have to deal with whatever snow is available at the resort we are at. The Bonafide is a perfect fit for the job.
