Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

I purchased these before there were reviews, and I wish I had waited so I could have found out that the fingers were divided before purchasing. The leather on these gloves is gorgeous, soft, and supple, I've been very careful with my ski edges and they seem to be doing ok, though I do expect they will get sliced at some point. The catch for me is the divided fingers: essentially this is a fleece glove with a thin leather mitt on top. The leather provides some wind and snow protection, but doesn't add much in terms of insulation. I would have preferred a mitt liner for the skin on skin warmth benefits. That said, these gloves are super stylin' and they will be a staple for warmer ski days.

Best. Jacket. Ever
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 125 lbs
Size Purchased: small

I have had this jacket 2 years now and am considering purchasing a backup, just because I love it so much. I have used this both as a midlayer and as an outerlayer on blue bird days. I'm tall at 5'10" and the sleeve length is perfect for me. The thumbholes are great for layering up, and the chest pocket is large enough for an iphone and some shot blocks.

As a midlayer, this jacket is unbeatable. The insulation is strategically placed on the front/back torso and the top of the arms. Along the underarms and ribs there is high quality fleece, which gives you the perfect combination of warmth and breathability. On cold days I ski in this and a shell and feel great.

As an outer layer this jacket also does well. It has some light water repellancy, and dries fairly quickly, but is most certainly not waterproof, and will water log quickly in a downpour. It offers some protection from wind, but of course, is not a windproof shell.

All in all, this is my go to jacket for all adventures.

Fatally flawed

I was super excited about these gaiters. I purchased back in May for a Denali trip that fell through, and just got to use them recently. While the zip close presents a challenge for gloved hands, the overall design of these gaiters is pretty good. The elastic at the top keeps them in place and even post holing every other step didn't knock them out of place. The waterproofing was excellent, and my feet were nice and dry at the end of the day. HOWEVER, the underboot strap is NOT stitched to the gaiter. They use a bracket on one side and a pull through closure on the other side (see photos). Both of these systems failed on me multiple times. This is especially frustrating given the importance of the underboot strap and the difficulty of reattaching when you have crampons on. I really have to wonder what Norrona was thinking when they designed this.

Does anyone know the main differences between the women's and the men's TST? I demo skied the TST men's and really liked it so I'm debating whether I get the women's version or stick with the men's ski that I tried. For reference I'm 5'10" and 125 lbs and a type 3+ skier. (was planning on purchasing the 174 legnth) THANKS!
