Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small

I bought these for walking around reykjavik for a winter vacation. These boots took me through snow, puddles, slippery conditions, you name it. And my feet were always warm and dry. There were a few times where my feet got too warm if I was indoors for a long period. I could walk with out slipping too. I walked several miles in these babies and can attest that they're comfortable for that too.
I have a narrow foot with a high instep. I usually wear a 6, bought these in a 6.5 to be safe. I wouldn't say that the boot runs small, as I never tried a 6 on, but the 6.5 fits my foot fine.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I wear these bras for Bikram yoga. I am a small 32 A and an XS fits about right. It's very comfortable and doesn't restrict movement. It does not have a lot of support though, and I wouldn't wear it to run in. I have a black and a blue one, and they don't have any padding to them like the Lulu tops, so I'm glad to have the dark colors to keep my headlights from showing. This top does provide ample coverage to keep you from having to worry about popping out of it.

I bought these with hesitation-they don't say that they are dry bags. I was headed for a 3-day kayaking trip and really didn't want wet gear. They did not disappoint. These bags are awesome-my stuff stayed dry in the kayak hatch that leaked. I was really impressed. They were also very helpful in that they compressed my stuff down so small-the air valve on the side really helps with that. I have no regrets with this purchase!

I've used these tights a lot this winter, and they have held up really well to the repeated washing.
They fit me true to size (120 lbs, 5'5" =small).
I have used them mainly for running. I do notice my legs getting really hot and sweaty during long runs, even if my fingers and toes are numb.
These have excellent compression, although I can't really tell a difference in muscle fatigue or that persnickety ITBS during running.
I wore these one day while skiing and really appreciated the knee support. But my quads still got as tired as normal.

I have these tights and a pair of the CW-X Pro tights. I don't care for these that much. They fit true to the size chart for me (small=120 lbs 5'5" with a big butt).
I notice my legs getting really sweaty in these. It would probably be easier for me to wear shorts if it's not cold enough for my Pro tights.
These tights don't have a lot of compression to them, and they tend to sag if I run in them long enough. Ironically though they bind in the crotch too, which is pretty uncomfortable. I find myself always grabbing and adjusting these tights.
The only reason I like these tights better than the pro is the contrasting fabric isn't as loud.

I bought the bright orange one since someone complained that your nipples showed through the white one. This top is essentially two pieces of poly mesh layered on top of each other. So you can still get nipple views with the orange one in the right light.
The adjustable sports bra also looks weird and lumpy underneath the main shirt. It looks like I'm wearing one of those orthotic bras. It is very supportive though. I am a small A cup, and it seems to be overkill on the support for me.
On the upside I bet this top is great in the summer, it's very breathable. I wore it on a warm humid day and felt great.

I love these pants-they actually look good while on. They are very minimalist-few pockets, no lining. But they do great at keeping the snow and wind out, while keeping you dry on the inside. I was glad I found these at such a great deal on this website. I love Arcteryx stuff, just hate paying full price!
