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

I picked these up for an ice climbing/splitboarding trip coming end of November in AK so function/durability-wise, we'll see.

Wanted to add some sizing info though since that is always hard to decide if you can't try them on. I'm 6' and 145 lbs. I tried on both the 30 and the 32 and ended up with the 32 mainly for the extra length (I think they are an inch longer). However, I could have easily gotten the 30 as well. The way Patagonia designed these with the waist belt is perfect. The 30 and 32 both would have allowed for proper layering and fit perfect but I usually have problems finding pants long enough that fit my waist which is why I opted for the 32. I think it's safe to say if you have problems with pants not being long enough, you should be able to size up (for length) and still have them fit ok.

I have the Arc'teryx Beta AR hard shell pants but wanted something a little more specific to what I'd be doing. I think these will hold up excellent though!

Lastly, they seem to fit over all my mountaineering and snowboarding boots just fine.

I've been eyeing this piece for quite some time and finally picked one up. I'm 6' and 145lbs and the Medium is perfect! just long enough and form fitting but not too tight. Merino wool is really soft and the stretch on it is amazing.

I haven't put it to the real test outdoors yet but I got it for a good layering piece for AK winters. I have a backcountry snowboarding and ice climbing trip in a month and this will be my base layer for sure.

I will definitely be getting the Rho LTW bottoms as well. I'll update this review once it gets some real use but as with all Arc'teryx gear...I know it will be amazing.

I'm 6' and only about 140lbs so I'm tall and skinny. I originally went with the Medium because I was worried about length but there was just too much around the waist and I didn't wanna deal with it. So, I crossed my fingers and ordered the small. I'm glad I did because they are perfect. If they were any shorter they'd be too short but they are long enough to wear there is still some length left so it's not riding up your leg anytime you bend your knees. And in the waist they are perfect as well.

In jeans I usually wear a 29x32. I'm not sure if all Burton pants fit this way but hopefully this will help someone else trying to decide on a size as I couldn't find any reviews from anyone close to my size.

The pants them selves look and feel awesome! They feel really durable as well. Haven't had them up in the mountain yet so I'll update again in a few days.

Wow, what a fun board!!! I agree it does kind of suck you can't choose the color/style you want. Luckily I got red/blue/black which isn't bad and was my 2nd choice. I was hoping for the orange/blue/black. Oh well!

This is a great board to add to your collection. Super fun all over the mountain. The rocker is awesome. Fun in the pow, fun on the grooms, just all around awesome.
I haven't done much freestyle but I would like to more and this board makes it that much easier!

I'll have to update later on about the magne-traction. I've only had the board out once so far and I spent most of the day aligning my bindings etc. And even with all of that I still had a great time on the board!
Bottom line, get one!

I needed a good down jacket WITH a hood and have heard great things about the sub zero.

I was debating on whether to get this or the down parka and I chose this for two main reasons: for me the shorter length was nice, i didn't like the longer length of the parka. and second i liked the zippered hood instead of the buttons. I did like the layout of the pockets better on the parka though.

haven't put it to the test outdoors yet but im sure I will be happy with it.
Also, if it helps anyone. Im 6' and 140lbs and I got the Medium. It fits well by itself and also with layers (shirts, softshell, hardshell) underneath it.
