Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Goggles actually work pretty well on this helmet if you have the kind that have a clip strap - just run the strap through the two large goggle-strap sized vents in the back of the helmet and click inside (they won't touch your head because of the internal harness). it also helps to have silicon on the internal goggle strap. But the helmet is designed with no front vents so you can wear goggles on top during the ups (this is a skimo racing helmet after all) and they don't fog. Doesn't get better.

I bought this glove for skimo racing/training in the PNW. Fit is fantastic (I am typically a 7 and bought a small) and is just slightly too warm (meaning my hands are never really cold). The coverage is really nice with the long cuff (put a watch over the cuff) and fit to a pole (especially the nordic style skimo racing pole) is great.

I used this shoe over 80 miles of Cascadia over the last summer. Let me start by saying it is an EXCELLENT shoe, lightweight, fit is amazing (even for me with relatively fat dogs) and motion control in a LAB shoe? Awesome. But the sole completely wore smooth after only 70 or so miles, which basically makes them a really sturdy road shoe at this point. I bought the SG version which I think will hold up better just based on initial runs (these literally started wearing out on day one).

First impressions are great

I have a 54.5 head and went with a M/L, this is the best fitting helmet I have ever owned (I usually fit best in Giro size M). Ventilation is really fantastic (my head actually got cold!). It is not a small helmet but it has that POC look, which I like. I will not that this helmet has comprehensive coverage around the side of the head (see photo) and will not fit all sunglasses (my Tifosis didn't work too well).

I am 5'9" and use the 135 length. These do exactly what you expect - extremely light, very durable (so far), and angled basket allow for good purchase on high angle hard snow. I love the straps - simple old-school nordic style classical straps on long soft grips. Solid pole, efficient power transfer - not much more to ask for.

We use this tent bike touring with our two kids (2 and 4) - fits us well if a bit tight but it's light enough to put on a bike with all the gear for the four of us and has held up well in hot and cold weather (and rain). Also pretty good pockets, internal gear storage for a 3-season tent and vestibules are solid. For the price, this one is tough to beat.

I am 5'9" and 153 lbs - generally athletic body with bigger quads/thighs and a 31" waist. The leg loops fit fairly tight over shell pants and long underwear (basically perfect). I could not fit much more under there but don't think I would if using the harness for it's intended use. The waist belt leaves just a bit of tail, not enough to tie off if you like to do that sort of thing - although the buckle design requires you to be doubled over anyway.

Shockingly light, seems well made, and literally the size of your fist when put in its bag. It actually seems like it might be comfortable too.

I really wanted to like these - 80s throwback, made in the USA, great look - but the arms just kept popping off at very inopportune times - actually like all the time. They also stretched out so never really stayed on my face well - but when they did, they looked great. If you are only going to wear these in your car (i.e., leave them there) then go for it, but otherwise I would pass. Sent mine back.
