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

First time out riding for the year with this jacket. Kept me very warm and didn't get to sweaty underneath. Never appreciated the arm pit ventilation zips on jackets until today. Fits very baggy but made it much more comfortable to add layers and I found it more comfortable. No complaints yet!

Fit: True to size

Went riding for first time today with these pants. Very comfortable and warm and they fit very nice. Im 5'11 205 pounds and I got a size large. Hopefully this can help someone get the right size. I was up in the air with either the xl or l. Happy I opted for smaller.

Holds plenty of water for a day trip. Has a LOT of storage space with a bunch of pockets. My only knock is that it didn't do to well in the rain. After only about 15-20 minutes in a light rain, the contents of my bag had gotten pretty wet. If you are just doing day rides or hikes and it wont be raining, this is a good bag for you.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Most comfortable flip flops I have ever owned. Bought them two years ago and wear them regularly throughout the spring summer and early fall. Still holding up well and will probably end up getting a 3rd year out of them no problem... Oh, and the bottle opener is a nice touch.

I have put this pad through many adventures and trips with varying climates and environments. Never had to patch it once and is the most comfortable sleeping pad I have ever owned. Holds its air very well too. On top of all that, it compresses very small into its own stuff sack.

Have used it mostly on bikepacking trips. Kept me very very warm even near the lower limits. Ive used it in the low twenties and I had to zip it down because I started sweating. Bag got a bit wet a couple times from rain but did not lose its loft. Never got soaked so I don't know how it would fair then. Compresses pretty small and at only 3 pounds has become a staple in my sleeping system. Only bad thing I can say is that the zipper snags pretty often but has never caused anything to rip or any damage to the bag.

I used this as a layer under my Montbell rain trekker while I was biking the northern parts of the Great Divide MTB route and I did not have any troubles with the down getting wet from me perspiring. This could be because I was using it in the low 30's to high 20's but regardless I didnt have any issues and I would be riding for hours at a time. Only when it started to down pour and the water got to to it did I have any issues. Then like any down, it was useless.
