Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

these are awesome. these are my go-to gloves for 80% of my ski days, even wet snow days. for the most frigid days i switch to a dakine titan but these are so much better in feel & dexterity. water has never gotten through the membrane but that may be because i dry them by the fireplace apres-ski. i have a feeling that they might be uncomfortably still wet the next morning if i was backcountry skiing in a tent or forgot to put them by the fire.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

i defer to BD's product description. i really dig these. i got a pair of stoic duke's when i realized these weren't waterproof but that's never really been an issue because these stay inside the pack on wet or frigid days. the only knock is the sizing is a little small ... it gets pretty tight if i try to use a (thin) touchscreen liner underneath.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

5'8" 185 lbs with running back quads. can wear boxers in either M/L but these in L are like XXL ... already sliding down after walking just three steps. these might come in handy if i ever get exposed to thermonuclear radiation and turn into the Hulk. if i ordered these in size S, i'd probably give 'em five stars.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

120L my arse. must be the european sizing as my patagonia black hole 90L is pretty much the same size. & the yellow color is actually really dull ... more like mustard. compared to a patagonia black hole, the fabric is water-resistant (even on the bottom, where the patagonia isn't) but definitely cheaper. originally intended this to be my backcountry skiing duffel but i'm afraid to put hard goods (ski boots, crampons) in it so now it holds my surfing softgoods, i.e. boardshorts, wetsuits, flip-flops ... patagonia black hole is still the backcountry ski bag. i have a hard time believing the regular price on this is $129 ... i could see it being $51.58 regularly.

i ordered a 48" & one of the lime pole plants arrived already cracked. sent it back but backcountry.com could only send back a 46" ... no prob. tried these out at killington dec 22-23 & noticed a chunk of pole plant missing after the first run. that's weird ... i didn't use the poles on a warm-up run. four (two each pole) more chunks of pole plant fall off throughout the day ... and i almost never pole plant unless the big bumps really get away from me. i gave these an extra/second star because i really dig the blue/green color scheme. i guess i should have just kept the 48"s.

great jacket, love the thumbholes but had to reinforce stitiching. bottom of jacket rides up when skiing so not thrilled about that but keeps me warm & cozy. color is slightly darker than as seen on-line, and size L fits just a little smaller than most other M's ... just keep that in mind.
