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

I've used the older version and this years version quite a bit. This year's is even better than before. Regardless of the year, I've worn them walking around town, hiking around the Canyons, and even climbed in them. No matter what, they felt great. I was able to handle single digit temps but most people may require an additional layer when it's that cold. I loved the fact that I just needed the pants rather than the hassle of having to put on a couple layers. I was able to climb in windy 35F and actually got a little warm. All I had to do was fold the legs up once to where they were the lengths of capris and they were perfect. I wasn't cold or hot in these temperatures. I'm 5'4" 126lbs and bought a few size 4s and a size 6. I do fit in the 4s perfectly but I opted for a little room to be able to climb more flexibly. In the size 4's I am still able to climb but feel a little restricted in my high steps.

These pants are all around awesome! These are extremely comfortable, flattering, and have the right amount of stretch or give when worn. I like that these are pretty durable. I've worn these climbing, hiking and running and haven't had any issues with them. As soon as they go on sale, I'll be buying more. I even bought the Audrey leggings and knickers.

I'm one of those people that gets really hot easily. I wanted something that had great long sleeve sun protection (since I'm also really sensitive to sun screens) and didn't make me feel hot while hiking in direct sunlight with a 50+ pound pack full of climbing gear and rope. I tested it out in Bishop, Ca when it was 88F and in direct sunlight. The sport climbs we did were facing the sun so we knew it was going to be awfully hot. All the shaded routes were packed so we had to resort the sunny walls. The approach alone was at least 50 minutes in direct sunlight so this was going to be an interesting approach. I kept the shirt on the entire time with just a sports bra underneath. I couldn't believe how I was able to keep cool the entire time. If I felt a little warmer, I just unzipped the half zip a little and that was all I needed. I was able to stand comfortably in the sun while belaying my partner. The other two in our party had to strip down or somehow hide in tiny corners to avoid the heat from the sun. I did not complain at all. The thumb holes worked great to keep the sleeves down so my hands wouldn't get sunburned either. My only complaint was that my head was hot since I have dark hair so I just made do with a 4 in wide brimmed hat. I will be getting more of these and I've already tested it out in the Vegas heat of 100+F several times and went running several times. Still works great!!!
I'm 5'4" 128lbs and a small worked great for me.

This jacket is shorter than I would have liked but the warmth is worth it. I'm 5'4" and it goes to my waist. When the description says it's windproof, it really is. I wore this in Boston when it was 28 degrees F with a thin baselayer. I was really surprised that this was all I needed in such cold and windy weather. It's stiff at first but when you wash it, it's not as stiff.

This bag is absolutely awesome! It's padded all over and the two pouches can hold your boots and accessories. I was able to put both snowboard boots in one pouch and goggles, wrist guard, 2 pair of gloves, scarf, XL sweatshirt in it. If you want, you can stuff the main compartment where the board is. There's so much room inside. If you want, you can put the boots in there too. The back is very durable and great
