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

Arc'teryx once again has made a good product. I love the warmth, fit, and color (have the malachite) of this fleece. I picked this one up because I have a much lighter fleece that wasn't quite working for me at cooler temps. I have worn this fleece in the low 50s/high 40s with a brisk wind and felt completely comfortable. I noticed the reviewer below mentioned she felt the shoulders were a bit narrow. I don't have broad shoulders and didn't have a problem ordering my usual size. However, I do have long arms and was pleased to note that the sleeves on the fleece are long enough. It's also possible that a little bit longer torso would be helpful to keep it under a harness, but I haven't worried about it. So I agree with Tracy Anne, worth every penny.

I love this pant. I was looking for a flexible, breathable pant to climb in and do yoga in. I was also hoping the pants would be good for biking in the spring. These pants are perfect. They fit well, they breathe, they stretch nicely without feeling like I need to adjust them, and they come below the knee (great for rock climbing when I forget to drop knee). If you are looking for something similar, buy 'em.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I bought this shirt b/c I wanted a midweight base layer to keep me warm. Based on experience I prefer Merino wool and with a quick google search determined that Icebreaker might work. I got the sweater, and it's cute, it's very soft, and the stripe is fun. BUT the sleeves were way too short, and the seams around the strip are a bit scratchy. Most women may not have problems with the sleeve length, but I'm 5'8", skinny, with long arms and the thumb holes were past my wrist bones.

I was looking for a good technical shell to take climbing. This one has definitely fit the bill. It's kept me warm (altho temps aren't frigid yet). It's kept me dry. The pockets are a good height and a good size. Lastly, the vents work so well. I know most people are aware at how amazing pit zips are, but they are long enough to manage body temp easily.

I've used this harness for almost a month now. It's a pretty stellar harness and definitely a step up from my last one. It's light, packable, and fairly comfortable. That being said I feel like it could be a bit more comfortable. When I've fallen a couple of times on top rope the leg loops shift in an awkward way which makes getting back on the wall or making moves a bit weird. I haven't had this problem when leading. Other than that I love using this harness and glad I bought it.

I love this shirt. It's soft, it breathes, and it wicks, It also has a nice scoop neckline so the collar doesn't feel like it's at your throat. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars has to do with how it fits my body shape. I'm tall and very skinny so the shirt is a little more flowy than I would like it to be, but on anyone else with more meat on their bones it'd be perfect.
