Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I bought these for climbing after getting jealous of my friends similar pants. Nice, light-weight material, easily cinchable belt that doesn't look funny when cinched. And... room for a booty. Easy to move in. They cover my knees when climbing, but don't offer much protection from abrasion for your knees. Gotta work on my technique.

Great fit, easy to layer but not bulky, breathable, cuts the wind, super light, long enough for my arms, water resistant. I made it out for my first climb of the spring, slipped and slid sideways on some mud. Was bummed because I was meeting a friend later at a bar, with no time for a costume change. No mud or signs of my slip on my jacket by the time I got to the bar! Can't beat self-cleaning gear.

Very comfortable and easy to pack. When weight is balanced, it's easy to forget you have it on. Easy to adjust shoulder strap height. Bottom access is a nice feature. Have not used option for separate bottom compartment yet. Wish lid was removable/ hip pack for day hikes. Wish I could access the side mesh pockets w/o having to take the pack off. I'd buy it again, but would probably get one with a convertible lid instead, if I remembered.

Pretty. Form fitted but not tight. Feminine cut. I'm looking for a jacket that is technical, but will look good around town, or even for a nice night out. This might be it. Didn't buy it yet, so haven't worn it out, and can't attest to it's tech specs. Comfortable and the sleeves were long enough for my long arms. I'm 5'7" and about 160, and the medium fit perfect.

This thing is so warm that I had to take it off after a minute of wearing it in my apt, because I could feel my bodyheat building up. The length comes down about 2-3 in past my butt. The hood actually rolls up nicely with the stowage flap, and it also adjusts back well with the velcro on the hood. It cinches up really nice and easily around my face. This jacket feels warm enough that I could probably wear just a tee under it in 30F and stay toasty. It does ride up an inch or two when I raise my arms, but not such a biggie because of the length. The sleeves are nice an long too. The inner zipped pocket is about big enough for a phone or small camera, but no more. The inner mesh pocket is not firmly sewed into my jacket and is tearing off a little at one of it's top attachment corners. Overall a really nice jacket that has me looking forward to winter. Highly recommended when mega warmth is needed.
