Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I absolutely love these pants. They are my go-to pant for so many activities. I've used them on cold winter runs, climbing, back country touring/skiing, lounging around the house. Unless it's a super cold morning, I've found that these offer enough protection from the elements to keep me warm on dawn patrol ski tours. They're light weight, very flexible, and they repel water. And they have enough cuff stretch to fit over a ski boot. If I was to be sitting around in the snow for a long time I imagine they'd get uncomfortable.

My only real complaint is they tend to get fuzzy spots (pill up) easier than I would expect. But for a pant that I typically abuse, I'm not worried.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased the Ambit when it was first released. Since then, Suunto has completed a number of firmware updates, based on user input/feedback. Great company. Without going into all the details as to why I use this biking, hiking, trail running, street running, backcountry skiing, climbing, rollerblading (yes, my wife got me rollerblading this summer and I created a 'rollerblading' profile just for the event), I'll just say that it's become a staple whenever I head out doors. Solid product!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Even though this boot has been around for a while and newer technologies exist, I still think it's got a spot in the market. The obvious benefits of a flexible bellows, light weight, removable tongue, etc. are very nice.
They worked great for me in soft, non technical snow/terrain.
They didn't work well for me on windboard, zipped, crusted snowpacks because I couldn't get my narrow foot to feel secure in the forefoot area. I even tried a Sole Ed Visteurs footbed with a lot of volume. I coudn't have sized down any more as I previously used a size down Maestrale that I could no longer get my foot in because of running foot growth. So, I felt like my foot was swimming all over when I needed control.
If the size works for your foot, I'd recommend this boot for racking up lots of vertical in short amounts of time.
