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

Just received my jacket and have tried it during a couple of heavy downpours here in South Carolina. Jacket sheds water extremely well due to excellent DWR coating and waterproof DryEdge material. While It may be a bit clammier than my Rab Maverick eVent jacket, breathability of the jacket is good in spite of high South Carolina humidity. A feature that adds to the venting not mentioned already is that the pockets have mesh backing which will allow air flow when pockets left open. Another small feature is a dedicated tag "pocket". Since the care tags are rather long , Millet has put a small "pocket" into which the tags can be stuffed. Not essential but a nice feature anyways. All though new, at first look seems to be a well designed jacket with features found generally on more expensive pieces of gear.

Used this jacket on my summer trip to Ireland. Worked super during heavy rainstorms and worked well as a wind breaker. Breathability was good also, aided greatly by well placed pit zips and full front zipper. Fleece around the neck and at the top of the zipper was a nice feature. The jacket packs down small for carrying in pack or luggage on plane. Styling is well done making it useful for both trail and in the city. Thanks Backcountry for a great product!!!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are awesome pants. I have worn them on numerous trips and have gone twice with me to Ireland. I have worn them while sight seeing in towns and on hiking and climbing trips. They are highly effective across a wide range of temperatures. I like them so much, I ordered a second pair in a different color. Great Gear!!!!
