Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Finally replaced my 8 year old T1s with the Custom, and they are able to drive my mantras/AXLs with ease. I usually wear a 26.5 but went with the 26.0 because they were $300 cheaper. After some bootfitting, thermomolding, and heel wedges, they fit better, but my leader toe on my right foot falls asleep and gets cold faster than anything on the left if the temps are below 10F. Anyways, don't buy a size down because it's cheaper, but buy this boot if you want to really drive a stiff ski at high speeds and down the gnarliest east coast lift served terrain known to man!!!!!!1!!!!! \m/ \m/

PS: don't expect them to feel great on day 1, mine took about 7 days for the liner to fully break-in even after thermomolding. On about 25 days now, and they're still getting better

When my rack is not in use, I leave the keys in the lock cylinder or tape them to the side of the box. Thule should write the word Thule on their keys instead of the generic number stamped on there. Easy to misplace or forget what they unlock!

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

The original mountain khakis were perfect. Then they morphed into poor fitting jnco's, made for extra large mountain men. After giving up hope that I'd be relegated to carhartts for the rest of my life, I discovered the broadway fit. Not only are they properly sized, but they also fit perfectly if you're a skinny person who lacks a posterior. I normally wear a 33/32, but the 34/32 option fits fine right out of the box, and wouldn't fall down if I found myself in a situation where a belt wasn't available. My only gripes are that:
1. the yellowstone color sold out while i had one in my basket
2. backcountry.com only offers waist sizes, whereas mountainkhakis.com and amazon.com both allow you to choose waist and inseam, rather than just even numbered waist sizes.

Also, i'm 5'11", 160lbs and normally wear a 33/32 in pants if that is helpful for you to make a sizing decision for yourself.

Grabbed the Small off of S/C. It's plenty big to carry a week's worth of clothes, and is comfortable to carry when it's fully loaded. Much larger than I expected it to be, which wasn't a bad thing. Would recommend this to anybody that needs a good travel duffel, and doesn't want to spend the extra $$ on a TNF basecamp or PTG Blackhole

Big fan of this helmet. The fit is smaller than a comparable size in Giro or Smith, so I'd recommend trying one on before buying sight unseen. My head isn't proportioned correctly to have the earphones line up perfectly, but not a huge issue. I've gotten a slight irritation from the built in beanie rubbing against my neck, but only after 3 full days of skiing. Haven't worn it for spring riding yet, but it is plenty warm for anything above 0 fahrenheit
