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

This quarter-zip has become one of my new favorite layers for outdoor cold-weather activities like skiing and snowshoeing. It's comfortable, soft, not itchy at all. Really warm. The Lg. fits me just right (I'm 5'6", 145 lbs., and would normally order a size Med. top); the Med. fits my daughter just right (5'9", 145 lbs.) but was tighter than I would have wanted for myself. Washes well. Designed nicely enough that it would work fine for casual apres-ski wear too (i.e. doesn't look like long underwear).

I wore my new long u'wear bottoms for 10 days straight skiing and snowshoeing over the holidays in Maine. Some of the days were bitter cold. This garment is very warm (can't beat merino for low-bulk warmth) and comfy. The wide waistband lies nice and flat. They're not itchy. They wash really nicely. I'm an athletic build, 5'6" and 145 lbs. and the size Large is perfect. (I bought the Medium for my daughter, 5'9" and 145 lbs. Both of us think we have the right size for us.) They hug nicely, don't bag at the knees. I've skied in New England for 50 years and this is the best long underwear I've ever had.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Wore these socks for the first time last night, playing paddle tennis (an outdoor winter sport) in 20-degree cold weather. My feet were so comfortable and toasty warm! The socks are nicely cushioned and soft, but my tennis shoes still fit fine with them on. Seem to run true to size: size M fits my women's (shoe) size 9 feet perfectly.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Great looking jacket, probably very warm. Couldn't wear the size Medium, as it was cut too slim for my 5'8", 145 lb. build. Also, the belt is way too high (far above natural waist), which is a problem because you can't wear it without the belt. belt is not very adjustable either. For these reasons, decided not to try the larger size.
