I ordered the Pumori because I really liked the Knight Purple color. There was only 1 size in stock (XS) when I ordered it, and I'm usually a S, but some of the reviews implied that this fleece runs large, so I gave it a shot. I received it yesterday and the shade of purple is exactly what I had wanted. The size is also perfect on me - the arms are the perfect length (long enough for my long arms) and the shoulders fit well. It is slightly snug on my hips (I don't have large hips - they're average) but I wouldn't say it's tight. All in all - great fit, and I'm excited to have a nice soft fuzzy fleece in my collection for this coming fall and winter. I am not expecting wind proofing or anything (I know better - I have a Denali) so I expect it won't help when it's REALLY cold, but I think it'll be the perfect fleece for spring and fall in CA when it's a little more chilly.

I have not washed or worn this yet so I can't attest to its durability.

This is not a performance fleece - it's more of a fashion fleece. As long as you're aware of that when you purchase it, you'll be pleased. And if you're between sizes, size down. Even if you're not, you should consider it. I wear a S in Patagonia fleeces (I have 2 and S fits well in both) for sizing reference. A S Denali is large/boxy on me.

I had no idea I had a smallish face until I tried these on and they fit perfectly. I have tried so many goggles, but really wanted a pair with the sensor lens for snowy conditions (my other goggles are Oakley A-Frames with polarized VR28 lenses, which fit well and are completely flush with my GIRO G10 helmet and did not fog AT ALL in all sorts of conditions) because I found it hard to see with my A-Frames when weather took a turn for the worse. I tried Electric EG-1s and they pinched my nose considerably - enough for me to return them. These I/OS's do nothing of the sort, and allow me to see so much.
The only thing wrong is, they did fog up on me while my A-Frames never did, even with balaclava on. But it wasn't *too* bad - nothing that I couldn't deal with (and the fog dissipated pretty quickly). Also, I changed the lenses out during lunch and somehow didn't snap in the nose part correctly and snow flew into my goggle, but that's my fault.
All in all, glad I found these on tramdock. I think they're a keeper. The ignitor mirror is a great mirror - can't see my eyes AT ALL in all the pics I took. And the sensor mirror is every bit as awesome as people have said in snowy conditions - I put them on and everything was suddenly enhanced.

I tried on the 2010 DC Mora's for size at Sport Chalet and could not believe how little heel lift there was. I ran home and bought the 2009 right away (since they were on sale). When I got them however, I realized that it was a completely different boot. The lining was made of a different material, and because there is an air bladder (that does not seem to work on my boots) there are a bunch of pressure points that really stress out my feet on the mountain. Also, I tested the boots at home and my heels were lifting, even though the exact same size in the 2010 model gave me zero heel lift.
Overall, I like the BOA system, but that is probably the only thing I like about this boot. I also have to adjust my bindings because this boot is so short.
