Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I wanted to keep these shorts but they were just too large. Normally am a size 9 or 11 so ordered the 11. Unlike so many of the booty shorts out there these are actually big for their size. The length is fine, not screaming out men's shorts,nor hey look at me short shorts.The material is really stretchy so should be great in the water or when you have to sit down wearing them.
I returned them and ordered a size down.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a comfortable sport bra but way overpriced for what you get. The Target brand or Champoin bras at Costco are just as good and 1/2 of the price. I sized up and was glad as the chest band is quite small.Have been using it for high out put xc skiing and find it stays damp and clammy for a few hours afterwards so contributes to chilling.Arm range of motion is good and the support is low to medium.
I will keep it as there is no time to go shopping for another. If you don't mind the price then it is not a bad deal.

Ordered these on spec having tried a few other brands such as Patagonia and Swix.The Stoic craftmanship is excellent, the material abrasion resistant, and it is quite windproof. Not sure of how waterproof they are yet as they have been only used in cold dry conditions down to 0 F, only requiring a thin pair of lycra tights underneath at the lower temperatures..The material has enough stretch to allow lots of movement.They have been used for snowshoeing, skitouring and dog walking and they are quite breathable despite having no leg ventilation available.
I normally wear an 8 or 10 ,an athletic build,5'5" not too curvy ,leg 32"and went with the large after other reviews. The thighs are narrow but comfy. The waist band is quite low and requires a belt. The legs would fit a much longer leg but they can be done up around boots and work fine.
The pockets are not too functional, as the front leg is small and can't even carry a small pocket camera (an energy bar will fit in though.)
The back pockets are on the shaping seams and not too convenient to reach.I still like the pants as when they are worn it is cold enough that removing gloves and reaching into pant pockets is not a priority.
Overall they are a great deal for the money and quite slimming.
