Familiarity: I've used it several times

After some usage here is my note:
I've got my bindings mounted on one of skis with some horizontal deviation - binding was not perfect in place, had to push binding few milimeters to side in order to qlick into ski mode. First time after short touring up the hill I almost lost front screw, it almost fell of the mount. Lucky I noticed it before the run. After fixing it on the hill(putting it on the place) it never felt of again. Also deviation in mount had gone. So you need to be carefull with who installs your bindings, obvious mine were not properly mounted .
Touring is easy and comfortable(have not done flat touring though). I got several times my lower ski (to the hill when going not straignt but traversing the slope) being stepped into the ski mode during hiking quite steep slope. Also qlick into the ski mode is sometimes not straightforward, binding seems to be stepped in, but marks say opposite(see video). So I always check bindings before ascent.
Skiing several times in trees, groomers, open pow slope. Binding feels super great and comfortable. Had no chance to test release though Also have not used any other touring binding so cannot compare it to others.

This jacket is only suited for "stylish" walk in the city when there is no serious rain. Absolutely don't recommend it for hiking, waterprofness is bad and brethability is ZERO. Have no idea how this jacket can be used for skiing except sunny sprint weather.
Saw it recenty on SAC for 25$ - real price jacket worths.

Perfect fit, really comfortable. Bought it to have some ava-safety and to eliminate size of my Deuter Freerider 26, which feels bulky on sidecountry trips.
The only complain I have for the momemt - I hate when straps are not fixed after adjustment. All straps (shoulder, waist) have about 30cm of hovering belts, and I was surprised when have not found fixes for at least waist straps. Will need to find out the best way to add them.

Was going to use as shell for skiing, but was surprised of what I got:
No underarm zip vents for this, no venting at all!
Outer fabric looks very tiny and probably can be easilly damaged with tree branch.
Had no chanse to test in field yet, but jacket looks waterproof - so good piece of protection when rain comes out.
