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

I loved the weight, dexterity, and breathability of this glove, but it ended up falling apart within a few days (yes, days!) of use. Poorly made and definitely not worth the money, unless you just have to have that snow leopard on all of your stuff. Tech fingertips were the first to go.

For a glove that's just going to fall apart, get something cheaper.

I have had a few pairs of pants over the years- cheap off-brand, Marmot 5-point, Marmot Alpinist- and these are by far my favorite for typical resort skiing and backcountry use in colder weather. They're comfy, durable, waterproof, and stylish, and they have plenty of pockets. Built-in transceiver pocket is also pretty cool and an alternative to the sort of clumsy harnesses that come with most transceivers. The pants also fit nicely around boots, which, believe it or not, has been a problem with some of the other brands of pants I've encountered. Also, the cross-flow system (zippers on both sides of the legs) is very clever and a big improvement over the standard side vents.

We'll see how these work for spring touring - I expect they might be a little hot- but for winter touring and resort skiing, I can't see how you could get any better.

One small gripe: I wish they came with suspenders so I wouldn't have to shell out for another pair.

Buy em!

I agree with the other reviewer here- the pant has a very wide fit that looks kind of silly. Most people buying a small are going to be smaller than that! I also thought the pant was needlessly heavy. That said, the boot cuff was wide enough to fit around any boot.

I also ended up returning them and buying the OR Axcess pant, which I think is a better product.
