Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Like other reviewers have stated, these gloves are great for ice climbing. I, however, have used these at very low temperatures as they provide pretty good insulation during high exertion. If you are quick to pop on some mittens when you are belaying, these gloves work wonders on ice routes even on the lower temperature spectrum. The dexterity and water proofing are spectacular. The first time I used these gloves on lead was like the first time I tried monopoints--instant love. Do yourself a favor--buy these and go climb some ice.

These pants are unbelievable. I have been climbing some really wet WI3/WI4 ice in them that I thought I was going to get absolutely drenched in but I came out completely dry. The fabric on the knee and heel has saved me from more than a few crampon rips. These pants also have a really nice snow skirt.

I don't know what the reviewer below me is talking about--this thing is very good at stopping wind. I commute by bike in this thing all the time around Boston and am very warm and it withstands strong gusts off the Charles/in the center city. I also have used this extensively on very cold days climbing in smugglers notch/Frankenstein/huntingtons ravine areas on WI3/WI4 ice with high winds and exposure. It works like a charm as a midlayer under my softshell. I can't praise this thing enough. It's so light you can barely feel it.

I live in Boston and use this on my cold bike commute ever day in the winter. Great coverage of the neck/face. The sizing is excellent and the material/make is unmatched. I love this thing. I took it on a winter hike up washington and it kept my face warm despite the cold winds.
