Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I have been very impressed with the quality and functionality of this jacket for two seasons now. I wear it for resort skiing and a lot of backcountry skiing. I've found it breathable enough to wear while skinning on all but the hottest of spring days. On cold days I need to layer well underneath, as it is just a shell. My first impression was that the zippers might be undersized and vulnerable, but this jacket has seen well over 150 days of use and hasn't shown any signs of weakness. It has even stood up to the abuses of snowmobile access skiing, which is pretty rough on clothing. I found the fit to be pretty average for a medium. The arm holes are a bit small for wearing bulky layers underneath, at least on my frame, but the asymmetrical cuffs work great over ski gloves. The hood fits over a helmet pretty well, and moves well enough to ski with the hood up, as long as the skiing isn't super technical. Overall an excellent jacket that offers great breathability and durability without sacrificing fit or style.

I just got the Moment Team 3L outerwear, and have spent enough time in it I feel like I can comment. First off, as has been mentioned, both pants and jacket are shells. They are not insulated, and are not warm. This may actually be my favorite feature. For years I've been in stylie ski clothing that was heavy and hot, with no option to layer down for spring skiing (or as we call it in CO, skiing).

I am 5'10" 175 lbs and got size L in both pants and jacket. The fit is loose and comfortable, without being bulky. I can wear layers underneath and a pack over the outside without an issue. They are very light, which makes mobility easy. I have been snowmobiling, skinning, and skiing in them and they are great for all activities. So far, the fabric has been very durable and completely waterproof, surviving a couple encounters with trees and with the snowmobile. Construction feels solid all around, and no seams are showing any sign of wear. I like to claim that I don't care what my ski gear looks like as long as it works, and now I don't have to. How can you argue with a Moment baseball kit?

Nice wide fit, fits pretty similar to the 27 Salomon Course from a few years ago (pre-spaceframe honeycomb). Stiff forward flex, very stiff side to side, and excellent support rearward with the spoiler and tall, stiff liner. BOA system doesn't do much while skiing, but while skinning it allows you to undo the buckles, and the liner stays tight to your foot (= no blisters). Boots are noticeably heavy while skinning, but its a trade-off I'm willing to make for the first touring boot I've ever used that skied (mostly) like an alpine boot. Skinning on flat ground I notice that the cuff release doesn't allow the cuff to go beyond vertical. This is much less noticeable on steep skin tracks.
