Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs small
Height: 6' 4"
Weight: 200 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

This jacket fits a little small... I am 6'4" and thin... sometimes I can fit into a Large. Not with this jacket... the Large is way too small around my shoulders and too short in the arms. I assume the XL would fit, but overall, I was not impressed so I returned it for a different jacket.

I was looking for a really really warm down jacket, and this one doesn't quite cut it. First of all, the hood doesn't cut it (see below). Also, the front of the collar is very short... barely comes up to your chin, so you will need a neck gator with this jacket. And the chest pocket is on the smaller side.

The material and construction seem good... the zippers are nice. I like the design. I'm not a big fan of the hood, which is removable, and there are gaps where it doesn't attach. The hood is not oversized. Although it fits over a helmet, it won't provide full protection. You'll need a neck gator.

Also, the pit zips are more like arm zips, and they're not very long at all. They start near your arm pit and go out towards your elbows, but they do not cross over your armpit down to your torso. Not impressed.

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

I'm 6'4" and have a 34" waist and 36" inseam. These pants fit great... (I bought the Large). They don't have any extra length, but they are definitely long enough. They fit great around the waist. These are by far the best fitting ski pants I've ever worn. If you have a shorter inseam, they will still fit... having some extra length will be fine, and you could wear them a little higher and they'll still be cool.

The quality seems very good and worth the $200 bucks. I live in Jackson Hole and my ski pants get worn a lot for about 6 months out of the year. I've gone through a lot of ski pants through the years, and I'm giving these a big thumbs up, especially for tall guys.

I bought the brown, and they are much lighter than the picture shows. They're more of a tan color.

I love this jacket. I bought it for spring/fall riding in Jackson Hole, and I've worn it on about 5 rides so far. Today, I used it for a quick 50 mile ride in 50 degree, windy weather. Under the jacket, I wore a light undershirt, a summer bike jersey and Gore windstopper arm warmers. It was perfect. A couple days ago I wore it for a chilly morning (40 degrees) ride up the pass and took the sleeves off right before I started the ascent (had arm warmers on). It was perfect. I put the sleeves back on for the descent, which was also perfect. I think this is an extremely versatile jacket. It's not the kind of jacket that you would roll up and put in a pocket. You would be wearing it for your whole ride, taking the sleeves off if you get too warm, and unzipping if needed. Also, there are 2 zips for each sleeve, which makes it a little tricky and slow to put the sleeves back on. To make it easy, I marked my sleeves with a R & L to minimize the time my friends have to wait for me as I put the sleeves back on. I am 6'4" and about 195-200 and the XL fits me perfectly.
