Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I have found these gloves to be ok, but not great.

They breathe well, but not well enough to wear on a skin track. I still sweat them out when I am skinning in all but the coldest weather. At the same time, they are warm, but not as warm as I was led to believe from the packaging. Not really warm enough for sitting around, or really cold descents.

They are not particularly dextrous, due to the way the stitching in the leather comes together at the fingertips.

I also can't believe anyone would make a ski glove these days without a nose wipe thumb. I just get snot all over the leather part of the thumb. That's a pretty basic feature to leave out, in my opinion.

I like the fit of the cuffs and the flexibility.

These are good gloves but not a quiver-killer, which is what these gloves purported to be when I bought them. I still have to bring two or three pairs of gloves with me when I tour.

I use these pants for year-round climbing and ski touring in the spring. They are the best pants of their kind I've ever had.

They have the best fit of any hiking pants I've ever worn. I am 5'9", 32in waist, pretty lean, but with big legs. They fit just right everywhere. I like that the legs are cut closer than a lot of hiking pants. They aren't tight but they're not baggy and flappy either.

They are extremely durable, and have gone through many offwidth and chimney climbs without getting torn up. They breathe well, bead water fairly well, and are comfortable.

I hope Norrona keeps making them.

These fenders are mediocre.

Pros: If they fit on your bike they are easy to attach. Decent coverage.

Cons:
- The rear fender didn't fit on one of my bikes, because the space between the seat stays is too narrow.
- The front fender gets in the way of my toes if I turn at low speed. Sooner or later I feel like the fender is going to break because of this.
- Front fender doesn't stick out forward as far as I would like, meaning that I still get front tire spray in my face if it's really wet.

I ride year 'round in the Pacific Northwest and I've used a lot of fenders. I have yet to find a great pair but these are definitely not it.

Sticky soles and good fit, that's great. But these shoes are super fragile. The outer seam blew out in a matter of days, after a handful of hour-long approaches. $75 is too much for shoes that don't last. I sent them back.
