Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs small
Height: 6' 4"
Weight: 195 lbs
Size Purchased: XL

I read the reviews referencing the tiny neck size. Thought, no problem, I'm typically an XL Tall and neck sizes are always way too big for me (16 1/2 in a dress shirt). Wrong! The neck is not only small but stitched so that it does not stretch. I could not push my head through the opening for fear of ripping the jersey. If you have a freakishly small head (like you used to tour with the circus) then this might work for you. Or if you plan to cut off the neck and sleeves and go all Larry the Cable Guy on us...otherwise just pass on this good looking jersey.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great helmet but be aware that the Neon Orange should more accurately be called Hunter Safety Orange...probably not PC enough for the community...but if you're riding in hunting zones, that's the ticket. Or if you just want to look like Elmer Fudd...otherwise you may want to reconsider your color choice. This looks nothing like the nice friendly orange color shown on the Smith website, the backcountry.com pics, or the nice orange helmet they make for snow sports. Returned and found a lovely non-MIPS version in a happy cranberry-ish red color...think it was a late 2013 color like Smith had at Interbike 2013 along with the Red, White and Blue version. Super comfortable, easy adjustment that stays put, ultra lightweight, great venting and never bothered me even in 95 degree Fruita, CO heat. Love the greater coverage.

I agree they are on the thinner side...they are spring gloves. The soft lining is very comfy. I use them for snowboarding on sunny days above freezing, driving all winter and on backcountry tours in all but the coldest conditions. I have the Marmot Ultimate glove for cold days. I do not think the "heavy duty all-around work glove" part of the description is accurate. Break out the Kinco 1927KW gloves for shoveling, snowblowing, trips to the recycle center, etc. No sense trashing these pricey beauties.
