Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

Wore this jacket most days this season. It is storm, wind, snow strong- with the Clima Pro Storm material- and is truly burly in external forces. There is nice movement to this jacket with great features that include underarm zips, powder skirt, big pockets, and helmet sized hood. Built from strong material that will last. I'm a medium in most everything- 5'8- and found this jacket fits true to size.

Wore this most every day last winter and it has stood the test of time and use. Love the cute visor and the custom air function that molds it specifically to your head. Gotta say I do love Pink and it is easy to keep clean with removable, washable parts. Comfortable, cute, and a reliable protector in all ski terrain.

Love the fit that is woman specific (smaller), the awesome, clear lense, and the superb visuals from the wide-view frame. I wore this goggle all winter and it is durable and tough in all conditions. Definitely put it through the wringer almost daily and it stood the test of all elements- from sun to wind to snow. Rocked the White/Amber/Grey version, which I adore for style points.

Spent a good chunk of my winter in this boot both in the backcountry and near/on Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Sturdy, Stiff, and reliable. Great for climbing, great for skiing. This is a powerful boot for the backcountry where you don't have to sacrifice comfort for performance. Felt like I could enjoy solid, great turns but also tour to objectives with good, flexible movement. Spent long days and many cold hours in the Quest Max 130 and it did me well.
