Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

After owning a pair for a year, I picked up a second on SAC this summer. Lightweight and comfortable, they are great for just about any activity like biking, or hiking. They are surprisingly durable for how thin they are, mostly because of the stretchiness, and the fit is good too.

I was a little bummed about the second pair I bought because the buttons switched from metal to plastic snaps which don't seem as high quality, but they work okay. And the lack of back pockets is both a pro and a con. Sometimes forcing you to carry less stuff, but then again when you are doing something active, you don't necessarily want bulky stuff in your pockets.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I had a pair of these a few years ago. Right after I bought them the stitching on the toe separated. I took them back to the store and got a new pair... The exact same thing happened again. I decided just to live with it since they were really comfortable and waterproof. I eventually put some shoe goo under where the seam had separated. After about a year or so the sole had begun to wear thin and separate, but I finally killed them when I wore them while welding and sparks burned holes in the non-leather parts (pretty stupid of me). They were no longer waterproof after that. I miss these shoes but I probably won't buy them again due to all the problems I had with them.

I bought this jacket in the color "cordovan", which I thought was the coolest color scheme of all the jackets I looked at, and I love it! It is suprisingly warm for how light it is. I use it mainly for walking around town and it has kept me warm on -20F days with a nasty crosswind! I do wish it had an easier accessible inside pocket when the fleece liner is zipped in, but that small flaw compared to how great this jacket is. I'll probably take it skiing on days when its not sub-zero!
