Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 6'
Weight: 180 lbs
Size Purchased: large

So I bought this jacket after trying it on at my local shop and finding BC had the best price out there... then it went on sale at BC even more and they refunded the difference... so I WIN shopping!
That said I am 6 feet tall and weight 180lb like one of the other reviewers here. I also find it a little loose through he mid section but love the long sleeves. Patagonia has for a long time for me been too boxy. After buying their Levitation softshell (that I think was custom tailored for me in my sleep, I thought I would give this a go. It for sure isn't as close fitting but still a great find. I will likely wear this under my shell to and from adn sometimes in the office this winter. I bought a LRG and can wear it with a T-shirt under neath or rock a hoodie and it no problem. All in all, I am happy with it, would have wanted a little less box, but Patagonia is finally headed in the right direction for highly"active people" (not fitted but slim).

I didn't even talk about how warm it is... it is very warm and cozy, so layer well if being highly active in it.

I feel like every time i put these on I am putting them on for the first time. They have so far stayed so fresh and soft... i like that.
They also seem to keep my feet good and dry by pulling moisture away from my often hot feet.
I wear a size nine and a half shoe and wasn't sure about sizing. i went with the large size and am pleased. I probably could have got the medium size but being all polyester they don't shrink at all. I think I am on the boarder for sizing, could go either way.. just fyi if you are trying to decide on shoe size.
But these are great... I will definitely be getting more of these.

Love this jacket, definitely a tough material, keeps wind out and light rain off nicely. Love that Patagonia started making things not so wide... skinny guys have a hard time with that.

To start, I have taken this bag on 2 solid trips now and do like it, however there are some things you should know.
It does not have Volume-enhancing Cram Zone zippers as advertised. I contacted Burton and they appologised and said in a previous version it did. But it is a tough bag none the less. The bottom of the bag is durable and stood up to a recent drag through more than a few airports very well.
Also 60L is a generous description. I have checked and checked to make sure I ordered the 60, and it even says

I have worn this watch for about a month now and been on 2 trips with it. I love it, the compass and light are more useful than I thought they might be. The velcro band has unhooked a couple times, but never fallen off... might be user error :) Also the thermometer is about 1 degree off when not on your wrist and about 10 degrees when on your wrist... not the greatest. But overall this watch is a win!

Fit: Runs small

I have owned dozens of gortex jackets over the years. Bought many fleece jackets, and this was my first and likely my last soft shell. I love it. It breaths well, the sleaves are a great length for my monkey arms.
The front of the body is a little short and the jacket has a smal neck. If you have it done all the way up without the hood up, it is kind of snug. The pull cords for the hood are also on the inside of the collar, and rub on your neck... bad placement, but other than that. It is great. I just wore it through a 50km wind storm we had and it was great, before that it rained hard/sideways and this bad boy repelled water like a 3ply gore... you should get one of these.

Fit: True to size

I recently purchased this jacket and have not been disappointed. It is very warm. I got it to wear under a shell instead of my Burton down 500 fill jacket. So far this is way lighter and warmer. T-shirt is all I need under it from 15-30F.
The slate looks more brown than grey.

Bought this hoodie a couple months ago. Wore it for the first time on a cold windy night in Chicago with just a T after I lent my jacket to my friend with no coat or sweater... come on bro, it's the windy city.
This hoodie is great, solid hood, great thumb cuffs. I love the stash pocket, I always keep my phone in it since it zippers shut.
My only complaint is shape related, but it might be just me. I found the sleeves to be long enough, but the body a little short. I am 6'1" 180lbs with a long torso and I bought a LRG. A XL would be to big. But this wouldn't stop me from buying another one in the future... or for someone buying one for me... :)

I have been buying BURTON jackets for years. This is the first AK jacket I have bought, and is definitely my favourite.
I am 6'1" tall and weigh about 175lb I have long arms and a long torso and this jacket fits great. It is a little loose around the body with only a long sleeve T-shirt underneath, but when out and about dressed for the weather it leaves just enough room to keep you mobile. I love the zip off pow skirt... it allows me to wear this jacket to work daily.
Lastly, the waterproofing is amazing. I picked this jacket up in Chicago and got blasted with some rain... I only wish I had been wearing the pants instead of jeans (I am sure they are great too).

Well for a long time I have sat at a desk and drank coffee and coke, I still drink those, but in the evenings or before work. I wanted to make a lifestyle change, to drinking more water, and MIZU was something I could get excited about. I love their passion for 'free water' and no more plastic water bottles. I got a black 800ml and love it. I was a little shocked at how thin is seemed at first, but don't let that fool you, it is tough (however if I was going to drink a hot beverage form it, I wold need an oven mitt).

Finaly helmet perfection
5 5

I have had a RED HiFi for the past 8 years, and was looking for a reason to get rid of it to justify a new helmet (finally the shell un-glued form the liner, woohoo).
So I decided to try the Watts Hard Hat, and I have not been let down. I love the adjustable venting, and knit liner. This helmet has been great on days -3C and days -40C with the wind chill. I love it!
If you care about your head and your wallet, you will buy this helmet.

Perfect fit
5 5

This jacket is amazing! I am 6'1/2" tall and weigh 175lbs and have long arms and the Medium fits perfect. I had a burton down before that was a LRg and to big to wear on the street, this one fits nice in town and amazing on the hill, plus the removable skirt and cuff things are great.
I have owned 7 burton jackets over the last 14 years and still have almost all of them (I have only given some away to buy more) this will be a jacket that I keep for a long time, and by the looks of it, will stand up to anything.

Pleased in Canada...
