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

I wear the anatomica boxer briefs everday, so in comparison the relay boxer briefs feel tighter and less likely to ride up, although they still will, since the hem is not that long. Fabric is nice and soft as you would expect from icebreaker.

I'd prefer no fly, so the extra fabric is a bit of a waste, especially under lots of layers.

Fit is typical black diamond, long and thin without much contour, but thankfully the schoeller material is super stretchy, yet quite water resistent. The zipper is a bit awkward to fit and zip up when you are in a hurry, and since it's a full length, the portion over the abdomen tends to bulge out (especially since there's no contouring of the material).

For waterproofing, in mild extended rain (I was in a drizzle for half an hour, and it never wet through), water just beads straight off.

Packs tiny, so there's no excuse for me to be without it.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small

as with panditah's review below, it's not really compressive, and the EXO material is rough to the touch, so initially I was worried I would get massive chafing on my (cyclist) thighs. Thankfully not, I've worn them to run a few 100kms now.

I would size up; I normally wear a small in everything, but for these I wear a medium.

There's some soft material inside to keep help your "junk" (if you know what I mean) in place, which I found very comfortable.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

For sizing I agree with other reviews; I'm 5'7", 145lbs with an athletic build (i.e. 30" waist, cyclist-built butt and quads), and a size small feels very fitted; butt/legs are fitted/tight (but not compression tight), calves are loose (to accomodate boots). A thin Rab Meco 120 base layer would fit well underneath, but anything else (e.g. fleece) would have to take be at the mercy of the schoeller stretch fabric, and the waist would feel uncomfortable with the extra bulk. Inseam is fine, I normally wear a 30x30". I suspect that for people complaining about the high waist/short inseam, the pants are actually too tight and hence have to be worn higher up than normal, in order to fit.

If you are going by american sized jeans/pants sizing, I'd recommend you size up. For reference, timberland 30"s are too loose it the waist for me, and I'd wear docker 29"s to fit my "real" 30" waist. I'm rating this as true to size, as it actually fits as I expect, versus being too loose.

Pretty warm, definitely good amount of down filling. However, I concur with other comments, I'm 150lbs and 5'7", athletic physique so I don't have massive shoulders or chest to fill the jacket out, but the arms still felt about 1 to 2 inches too short (NB: all I had underneath was a long sleeve merino baselayer, a very thin cashmere sweater, and I was very comfortable in about -10'C weather with a wicked wind).

I normally wear a size 9'ish (salomon Xa pro 3d 9.5 is a tad loose) so went for a 9.5 in the terroc 330. Fits well, haven't examined it for loose stitching etc, but so far they are holding up well, and are very comfortable.

The rocklite 318 by comparison was way too small (length wise my toes were stubbing the front of the shoe), I could have done with a size 10.

The flite 250 by comparison was very tight in volume (but length is ok), I guess it is meant to be worn with either no socks or very thin ones, so if you plan to wear your normal socks I'd also size up a 1/2 size e.g. I got 9.5s and could have gone with a 10.

I got a pair of 9.5s in the flite 250, and although length was ok, width/overall volume is very tight. I had to switch to thinner socks to get my feet reasonably comfortable. Length wise it was ok though (I normally wear salomon xa pro 3d size 9.5, and that's a tad loose).

By comparison: Terroc 330 size 9.5: fits well. Rocklite 318 size 9.5 was way too small (length wise my toes were stubbing the front of the shoe), I could have done with a size 10.
