Familiarity: I've used it several times

This Jacket is very warm considering it is a shell and the waterproofing is outstanding. It is extremely high quality and light weight and after a month there are no signs of wear or tear despite daily use.
It is also true to its size and not a ridiculously long jacket, the medium size actually fits like a medium.

I use these boots in snow every day since November and so far they still look like new. No signs of the rubber breaking down like others have mentioned.
I walk for 30 minutes a day in snow on average and some days I will spend entire days outside in powder in these boots for work and I have never had cold or wet feet.
These boots are designed to last for years and it will be interesting to see if they do.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great Ski for skiing in the powder with a lot of float. Nice ski for trees and glades.
Personally wouldn't ski with <15cm overnight but I know people that ski it every day. Not going to give you performance on groomers.
The softer core can cause problems when mounting the bindings and after a season or 2 of heavy use (i.e. big mountain skiing and heavy 20ft+ impacts fairly regularly) the binding may start to loosen at the screws.
Having said that the ski feels very stable in most conditions and is nice and playful.

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

I am not sure if all of the beanies are of the same quality but the cookie monster beanie I received split at the stitching about 30 minutes into the first time I wore it.
Nice design.
Tight fit.

Definitely go for the AK JJ's instead. Or the Super 7.
JJ's might be slightly too soft, and these skis are only slightly above your head (with the amount of rocker you might even be taller).. surely you still have some growing to do? Anyway the AK is stiffer, like the Super 7, so better if you are really going to charge, and also it will have a more appropriate length.
