Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've got the Good Times Jacket and this is just the matching pants for that. Same thing really as the jacket, well constructed and spec'd really nicely for a sub $200 pant. 2L and 15K, normally at this price it's some 10K "coating" vs the membrane. The regular cut are definitely roomy, so they tend to be a looser fit...but they also describe the fit on their website so there's no real surprises here. They do sell a slim version, so if you were looking for a more fitted pant that would be the one to check out I'd imagine. One thing I'll note is the interior fabric can "grab" with certain base layers. Merino wool layers for example send to have a little bit of "grab" when putting your leg in the pants. Nothing major, as it's because the lining material is fleece and this has happened to me with other brands. Synthetic layers slide in easy and you wouldn't notice a thing.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Typically wider skis in the East aren't as versatile, but I will say the fact that Faction gave this ski a 16m turn radius in a 102 waisted ski it skis like it's a lot narrower underfoot. The ski has a lot of energy because of the carbon reinforced sidewalls, that's what I think even though they don't say much about that. I've skied the Prodigy from Faction and this ski a few days now and have to say the 2.0 is an awesome ski. Ski it closer to all mountain binding mount center line though, as I have it set a little forward of that line and find with the symmetrical sidecut you want to be ahead of that line, but not the freestyle if you're looking to ski it as your daily driver on and off piste. It could use a little less tip rocker, but that's my opinion...otherwise I can find much fault in these sticks.

I've been in other jackets before at this pricepoint and they typically have some sorta coating to keep them waterproof. This jacket has held up in the typical Mid-Atlantic winter of snow and rain. Even in pouring rain I was dry on the inside when it looked like I should have been wet. Highly recommend the jacket as this is priced really nice for the features that are normally in a jacket another $100 more. It's a roomy fit, so you can easily wear layers underneath and good range of motion too.

I use the CW-X 3/4 insulatedd expert tights for skiing, so I figured I'd pick up a pair of these pro tights for trail running this fall and biking.
One thing, order a size smaller then what you wear! I'm a medium, but use a small in the CW-X. My girlfriend had to do the same thing, as she's usually a small, but is an x-small in CW-X.
