Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I can't speak to the current season version, but I have had this jacket for nearly three years and couldn't imagine taking an outdoor adventure to a snowy or wet climate without bringing it along. I hiked for hours in the rain and was comfy and dry compared to companions who were wearing non-gore-tex jackets. It's my go-to in the city as well during spring downpours. I'm 5'9" and about 145 pounds--I chose a medium and it's big enough to put over layers, but doesn't look ridiculous when I wear it in town.

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

The fit is quite nice on this jacket. I am 5'8" and often have trouble finding jackets like this that are both slim cut and long enough in the body and arms to fit well (I bought a size small). This jacket hits the mark. The back is slightly longer, which helps make it comfortable to wear with jeans or workout pants. The two types of material are perfect when you want some warmth with breathability.

After painstaking research I chose this boot for climbing in Ecuador (over a double plastic). Happy to report that my shins and toes have felt great--worlds better than the beating my shins took in double plastics. People will give you mixed guidance on whether the boot is appropriate for that altitude (~19k ft)--my experience was good. My feet got a little chilly while standing and waiting up high, but warmed back up quickly.
I typically wear a 9.5 or 10 and ordered a 42 in this boot.

Used this bag on Cotopaxi and Cayambe. I stayed toasty warm without lugging around too much weight. The neck collar keeps warm air in without feeling restricting and there's a little pocket on the shoulder that's perfect for keeping an ipod or ear plugs. Definitely a good purchase.
