Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
Size Purchased: 39

Love the extra height the platform sole gives, love the flip-down spikes, love the sheepskin lining throughout. There is nothing I don't like! Sizing note - 8.5 Women's shoe is normally a 39 Euro but Backcountry sends a 38 if you order 38.5 so I had to re-order the size 9, which is a 39 on the bottom of the shoe and fits like a dream. I'm an 8-8.5 shoe and always wear a Euro 39 so just know to order "up"

these pants are awesome in every way - I didn't buy them though :( ended up with the Robella because I couldn't pull the trigger on the "flame" color which is what my local shop had in stock. Flame is actually a lighter shade than shown, kind of construction cone orange - mid-fluorescent - very cool, and so fun, but what color can you wear with it? back to the fit and fabric...the best ski pants I have ever tried on! soft, supple, slightly insulated (barely noticeable), and flattering front, behind and all over! I think you need to size up - I wear a 4 jeans, 6 ski pant and the 8(40) fit like they were tailored for me. If they go on sale, I'll probably get them as a second pair and worry about what to wear with them later.

Fabric is great, pliable and a nice weight - insulated but not bulky. Oasis color seems to go with everything - royal blue, navy, all shades of purple and pink...styling has ample venting and pockets, really flattering for ski pants, however, I actually liked the fit of the Vail pant better (more fitted, less baggy all over) - just couldn't commit to the fluorescent orange color. I have size 40/8 and usually wear a 4 in pants, 6 in ski pants. Maybe they would have been less baggy in a 6 but I think the 6 would have been constricting (didn't try it, my store didn't have it). In the Vail, the 40/8 fit like a size 4/27 jean. I would size up as well.
