Familiarity: I've used it several times

For me these shoes are not comfortable. I have high arches, this shoe is built with a high arch for me feels too high. To me the shoe is very rigid and has little cushioning. Asics printed neutral on the shoe but for me is is not a neutral shoe. The shoe did fit to true size for me. Still looking.

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

The thing I wonder about this jacket is the liner. It is a combo of down and a stretchy material. The stretchy material runs all the way down the side and down the arms. Hey Northface is this a cost cutting measure or venting?? I don't know whether I would be willing to wear it by itself. It looks weird made this way. I did wear it inside the shell on a very cold 17 degree day and a blasting wind and it kept me warm but how it really functions on the slopes I don't know. The shell is Goretex and will keep you dry. I have worn it in a rare rain storm here in NM. The shell has a mesh lining in the pockets, I think this will make it more multi use. I need gloves on cold days with the pockets made this way. The jacket has no pit zips. The pockets are very long are probably designed that way to be pockets and venting. The shell can be worn just as a light jacket or rain jacket. The hood kept the wind off of my head but isn't warm, you need a beanie or something to keep your head warm. The hood is adjustable for those who do wear helmets.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I really liked this jacket. I got the athens blue which was a very cool color. I did try it on it had a nice weight and felt good on. I did not get to try it in cooler or cold weather so I can't review it on that. The problem was Backcountry put another jacket from Northface I wanted on sale so I returned this one.
