Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

First of all I have a 38" waist and I bought these in an XL, and I have PLENTY of extra room as they fit pretty big. Throw a belt on and you're set to shred. I bought last years yellow color and they get a little dirty easier. I came off of arcteryx bibs of 7 seasons and finally wanted something more relaxed fitting. The goretex is great as you would expect from any Arcteryx product. Overall I really enjoy the pants!

I ordered these in an 11 in the Black/Dark Earth color and am generally a size 11 in boots/shoes however they are a little big, so I just always wear a thicker wool sock with them for shoveling the walks or heading up to mountains. As far as the construction they are very well built. I have yet to even get close to getting cold or wet in these. I wanted an alternative to always borrowing my dads 15 year old Sorels and these are the one!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have these skis in the 185cm and have used them a handful of times inbounds and in the backcountry. The rocker tip you really notice in deep stuff and also busting through the more sun crusted aspects. Having camber underfoot makes it super fun to really get on your edges and hold the turns. I have these mounted with the Dynafit Radical FT and the lightweight combo is awesome. Highly recommend. Cool graphics too!

After researching dynafits for quite a while I finally made the plunge. I am a very casual AT skier (10 or so times a year) but wanted something lighter than my fritschi freeride's. I am a big guy 235lbs and wanted to make sure these were gonna hold me in. I skied a few days inbounds to get a good feel for the step in/step out procedure and they skied great. I have them on 185cm BD justice's and it is a phenomenal combo for the Wasatch.

Ordered an XL in the earthen color.
Me 5'11" 230lbs. This baselayer is just about the right size for me. A little lower cut in the back rear than I would like, but perfect for when when I tuck in my baselayer bottoms. I can wear this for at least 3 days without washing and have it not stink bad at all. The merino wool really is everything its cracked up to be. My Patagonia capailene baselayers are great but I have to wash after 1 use because of the "funk" smell. If you haven't tried icebreaker I feel its worth the extra money to have the good stuff

I picked these up the other day. I measured my calf and was on the edge of IV/V so I went with V size. Once I learned how to put them on (not like normal ski socks) I was immediately impressed. You have a left and right sock with padding etc in key spots. The CEP rep had told me about how they help flush lactic acid and it really worked. Super impressed after only a few uses. If this continues I will buy 2 more pairs for a 5-6 ski day a week season rotation!

For cold, sunny days nothing beats this coat. The only problem I have is on reasonable cold days actually overheating if I am side country hiking as I am a burly dude (235lbs) . Great jacket for hitting the town and bar hopping when its freezing. Good storage for anything you might need for the day.
