Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great performance when pushing hard in all conditions, which gives you the confidence to push harder. I'm sure the new boot-binding set-up helped me progress my technique.
Release system works when you need it to. I've released 3 or 4 times in the 60-70 days used, at least one of which would've been an ACL injury...
On the down side, they're pretty heavy, and a big financial commitment with new boots & all

Perfect gloves for on-hill, or the 'down' part of backcountry.

I'd recommend looking at these plus the 'Basic Work Glove' as the perfect uphill/downhill combination if you do lots of backcountry in colder climates.

Warm, dry & breathable. Comfortable, great dexterity. Worn in temperatures down to -18 deg C, and my hands stay warm. Surprisingly never too hot, even at 0 deg C.

Perfect gloves. Marmot have got it figured out, and this is their best

Simple, well built, fits perfectly. Purchased as work gloves for trail maintenance & chainsaw use on hill, but have been elevated to my go-to gloves for skinning uphill, spring skiing, or general use like walking to the village (often -6 to -10 C here). They seem pretty durable - after a long season with lots of abuse, I expect a few more years wear.
Worth the $$. Pretty close to perfect.
A pair of these, and a pair of Marmot Ultimate Ski Gloves, and you'll be set for most activities for many seasons.
