The Pamir is a nice color and well made. The pockets are fine, the waist cinch is good, and it is a nice athletic fit. However, I'm finding it to be a terrible layering piece for any athletic winter pursuit. It does not breathe well at all. I do much better with the TNF Denali as a layering piece at the same temperature range. I sweat like a stuck pig in the Pamir. I'd recommend it for 'sitting there doing nothing' layering.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought a pair of these for offroad rides in the dark on my MTB. For the size and weight, they handily beat my 3 year old Cateye external battery lights. The mount is solid, the lights detatch easily, and can be charged via USB in pretty short order. I really like the hard aluminum case and overall construction. This isn't a cheapo light. I'll be waiting for a sale on other Lezyne lights for my other bikes.

I really want to buy this jacket. It seems like a bugger to fit though. I'm 6'0" and 220, long torso. I don't think I have terribly long arms, but I have good sized shoulders and arms (former farmer). I also have a beer gut that comes and goes like the tides. I doubt I will ever wear any mid layers more than a hoodie underneath. I'm leaning toward XL just to be safe. Do you think that sounds right? For what it's worth, I have a TNF Free Thinker II in XL that fits me perfectly.

I'm truly and deeply in love with Gore-tex Pro. It sheds water like a yellow rubber raincoat, yet is incredibly breathable. It blocks the wind so well, it's hard to imagine how it blocks out the rain/water. I find that I have to wear less layers with this than with other shells I own because of the wind protection. I use mine for winter biking, snowboarding, and every day wear if the elements are being elemental. I mean, why pay this much for a coat and not get its benefit all the time?
