Greatest utensil ever.
I have literally used this Spork everyday for the past 3 and a half years. It hardly shows any wear. They are extremely easily to clean, and don't retain any tastes from previous foods. And no metallic taste!
I wish I could give this four thousand eight hundred and seventy two stars.

These pants a nice. Great quality for the price.
These pants have a nice fleece lining making them quite warm. I climbed in these with just a merino base layer underneath in temps around 0-10F.
They do stretch a tad, but I wish they stretched more. They are a bit tight in the crotch area even though they have a gusset.
I personally think these pants fit tight. I were a 30-31/32 pants and purchased a small. I could not wear an insulating layer under them, they would be too tight. I like that they are quite skinny in the legs, its hard to find ice pants that dont fit like parachutes.
The material is very waterproof, and the scuff guards are nice and durable. Although my first day in these, I was doing a cross and kicked high and kicked a slight hole mid shin length just above the darn scuff guard.
Overall, I would recommend these pants for Ice and BC Skiing.

I've owned this jacket just over a year. I wear it everyday from October -March. It is the perfect piece for cold commuting on a bicycle and chilly days to the craig.
I was very skeptical of the Coreloft insulation before I had purchased the jacket, and now I am a believer. It regulates with your body temperature very well. Not quite as good as premium down, but it still works amazingly.
Thinking back on it, I wish I would have gotten the hooded version, but this piece is very nice, but it also passes for looking like casual jacket.
Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge gear whore, but I don't feel the need to have every jacket look like I'm geared up to Summit K2 when I'm going out to dinner.
For sizing, I'm a pretty thin guy. 6'0, 135lbs with an even ape index. And I think it fits very nicely. It's hard to find a medium that actually fits these days.
The only thing I would add would be elastic waist tensioner so the bottom was more form fitting to my actual waist.

This are the best approach shoes I have ever worn.
I have hobbit feet, my feet come in between 8.5-9 EE. So traditionally Sportiva's don't fit my fat feet. I ended up going with a 42.5 and they fit amazingly. The super soft supple leather really stretches and forms to your feet.
These things climb just as well as they hike, I feel comfortable climbing v3/5.10+ in these shoes.
The rubber is super soft to expect to make these a designated approach shoe only. They tear up quite quickly on granite approaches.
Ditch the stock insoles and get some super feet and you will want to sleep in these babies.

Loosen all the straps on the sandal. Slide your heel against the heel strap until it is comfortable, then tighten the straps around your foot. If there is too much room on the front of the foot bed, or the toe strap is further past your first knuckle on your big toe, they are too big.
Remember for tightening. "Knuckle then Buckle" Pull on the left side of the shoe to tighten.
