Hey, Ivan. I bought these boots from Backcountry a few weeks ago. I can vouch for their supreme warmth and waterproofness, and I can tell you that you are spot on as to the expected size. I've also had the pleasure of dealing with Backcountry a couple of times with returns and refunds, and they are AWESOME about everything. They'll take good care of you.

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

So, I loved the way these goggles fit and vent. They were bulletproof but for one problem: The strap is positively gargantuan. I don't wear a helmet, and I set the strap as tightly as I could, and it slipped down around my neck even with a thick beanie. What gives? Did I get a lemon, or is this a common thing with the Eclipse?

Hey, Rooney. I actually just gave my Prophets their first run at Wolf Creek. They are a blast! I can tell you I took them all over the hill, from groomers to fresh, through trees, over moguls, everything. They handled it all fairly well, my only concession that I did want for a little more float in the really deep stuff. Maybe 3 or 4 mm more to avoid that edge drop. Phenomenal ski, though?I would highly recommend them.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This jacket has outdone anything I have ever worn in a harsh cold environment, be it due to wind, falling snow and ice or rain. It has kept every drop of moisture, every chill off my skin (with the proper layer underneath, of course). Most recently I took this jacket skiing in temperatures -20 up to 10 degrees with a variety of precipitation and sunshine, and it breathed famously when necessary, especially when using the pit zip vents. My favorite feature on this jacket is the placement of the pleated chest pockets?perfectly suited to pair with a pack or harness, and big enough to fit a surfeit of gear. The rubber gasket cuffs aren't anything to balk at either. They kept me sealed through deep powder and (Dare I admit it?) a couple of rough tumbles.
