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

This jacket fills a nice niche between my lighter Patagonia down hoody, and my overstuffed OR Maestro. I dig the warmth and light weight of the jacket. I can wear it comfortably to about 25 deg. F with just a t-shirt underneath. My biggest complaint is that there are no internal pockets to keep things warm on the inside of the coat (water bottle, climbing skins, etc.). I am 6'1" and about 200 lbs and the large fits me really nicely. If I were planning on using this as a belay parka I would need the XL. I bought this as more of a stand-alone jacket, though, and the large fits great

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I'm a firm supporter of Oakley sunglasses, and the Big Taco lived up to everything I was hoping for. Fits my larger face very well. Pretty comparable in size to the Oakley Eye Patch and Eye Patch 2, both of which I have owned and loved. The Oakley optics are unrivaled, in my opinion, and they are the only brand I wear on my motorcycle since all of their lenses meet ANSI impact standards. My only advice with Oakley is to stick to their plastic frame glasses. It's what they do best. Not as in love with their metal framed models.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

OK, so I don't actually own pretty much everything else in this line (cups, bowls, plates). I recently bought this as a gag wedding gift for one of my climbing buddies, thinking it was pretty cool. It wasn't until he mentioned it later that I realized it has graduated measurements in it. If I had known I would have bought one for myself in a heartbeat. Now, I am saving it for when I need a few extra bucks in an order to qualify for free shipping.

I only brought one pair of pants on my 18,000 motorcycle journey. That one pair of these double-kneed Carhartts has been everwhere from the top of glaciers in Alaska to the shores of the Sea of Cortez, and every state in the lower 48. The double knees do a great job deflecting gravel and bugs along the way. I won't wear anything else when I ride.

Hey, I'm actually thinking of getting a pair of these for cold-weather motorcycle riding. I am currently using a pretty beefy pair of outdoor research goretex gauntlets for that purpose, but I like the idea of leather for protection in a crash. They look well articulated too (like the OR pair) to help ease hand fatigue while gripping the controls. Can anyone hypothesize on their suitability for this purpose?
