Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs small

Very disappointing. I had tried on the BD Dawn Patrol Touring SS Pant at a local store and the 32 waist fit great, and I normally wear a 32 or 33. While I knew this climbing pant would be slimmer, I was shocked at the difference - these pants in a 32 fit awful, super high waist and about 3 inches too short in length. I am 6' and 170 lbs, my wife laughed and said they looked like I was wearing women's suit pants. Honestly I don't think going to the 34 waist would make a difference, the fit is just bizarre, sorry to say that as I was pumped about buying these pants with a gift card I had received.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I skied these for 6 straight days with temps from 12 - 34F, on the cold days these gloves were quite disappointing. I actually added a pair of Icebreaker merino liners and they did seem to help considerably. The other downside is there is no way to cinch the glove down around your wrist and I could feel a draft coming through. My hands do get cold easily and I thought these BD gloves based on their temp chart may even be overkill - unfortunately this was not the case. I would say these gloves are good for 20 - 30F. On the positive side, they fit great, large was perfect, well constructed, great looking. Overall I really like these gloves and have decided I need to go to mittens if I really want warmth. On sale - go for it - but $170 would be too much.
