5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large

These pants are awesome! I bought them mainly for rock climbing, and hiking. The pants that these replaced were developing holes in multiple areas from scraping on rock. I decided to try them ice climbing the other day, my crampons accidentally caught the material in the leg but no holes! I love them so much I'm buying another pair. The only minor criticism I have is the legs run slightly long, but they still earn a 5 star rating!

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

I bought this helmet last year end of season along with some Smith Goggles thinking that the same brand helmet and goggles would fit nicely together. Unfortunately when the goggles and helmet are on together it leaves skin exposed to the elements between your eyes and temples of your head. If it is a cold windy day you're going to notice instantly!

The Pros: comfortable adjustable fit, built in vents that you can open or close depending on the weather.

I would not buy anything from backcountry end of season, because if it doesn't work for you after 30 days, they won't take it back like REI.

Awesome Jacket
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This jacket is awesome. Warm and comfortable when having to stand around in the cold. Size wise, I'm 5'10" 160 with long arms and was having a hard time deciding on sizing. I ended up ordering a medium and a large with intent on keeping best fit. The medium was perfect with enough room for extra layers and the sleeves were plenty long enough for my long reach. The large was drooping over my shoulders and the arms were way too long, way too sloppy of a fit.

Well made!

These are my second pair and they are excellent for skiing and hiking. The first pair I bought 2 years ago and are still holding up after many uses. My legs are noticeably less fatigued when skiing and hiking. They are fairly warm, but when the temperature drops below the teens with bibs on my legs still got cold. Would give 5 stars if a bit warmer, but will buy again.
