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

I only have a few days with these pants, but I can share some design/fit information.

I am 5'9" 165lbs 33x30 pant. I tried on both the Medium and the Small, and went with the small. I could have gone either way depending on if I wanted a very loose vs. traditional fit. They fit slightly slimmer than my Patagonia Snowshot pants, and are shorter so I don't step on the cuffs in the parking lot.

The material doesn't have much stretch to it, but I suppose there is some. The pockets zipper down to close which takes some time getting used to. The outer leg zips are awesome, but start an inch from the top instead of 12" down so they look a little odd when unzipped. Inner's are great.

Im 5'9" 160 lbs, average non-muscular build, and debated for a while between the Medium and Large. I wear a Medium in most brands (sometimes a small in Patagonia) I bought both and although the Large is a bit roomy with just a base layer and 100 weight fleece, the medium was way too small (width and length) with anything more than a base layer. And even wearing just that it was too tight to wear for casual use. I ended up keeping the large and after wearing for a few weeks am now used to the sizing.

This jacket is great, breathes like a champ, lightweight and water and windproof. Surprisingly durable for how thin it is. Have skied into plenty of branches (and an actual tree) with no damage to the jacket.

This headlamp is super bright and shines farther then most would ever need in the spotlight mode, however the flood light is comparable to a $20 headlamp.

I find the red light to be kind of gimmicky since it really all that bright, but it worked well in a tent while trying not to wake up my girlfriend with a bright light in her face.

Ive used these pants the past week skiing at some resorts in Park City. Temperatures have ranged from 15-35 degrees and the pants have kept me comfortable wearing a cwx insulator pant underneath. When I tele ski and work up a real sweat these breathe great! I usually wear a 31x31 pant. These fit little large in the waist and are too long, however when wearing a belt they fit perfectly.Also the color is a DARK gray, not black (unless somehow the color has faded after the first wash).

Pretty comfortable and relatively inexpensive. Although I haven't used them too vigorously they seem to breathe well and dry quick. Most reviewers say to size down, however I'm 5' 10" 155lbs 31/32jeans and the medium fits comfortably. These do stretch well so the small could fit too, but I don't like things being too tight down there.
