Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs large

It was my third attempt to get in terms with Canada Goose sizing. I ordered Trillium parka in XXS (too small for my between XS and S size - the item couldn't sit back on the body after I raised my arms), then in XS (too big in the upper part yet tiny on the hips), and now Mystique in XS. Compared to Trillium, it's more balanced and now both upper and lower parts are just large enough to accommodate more layers.
It also feels way lighter than Trillium which surprised me since it's supposed to be the maximum warmth level while Trillium is a level down.
One other thing that I noticed is that the inside surface is sort of sticky: I have a cat and it's hair was immediately drawn to the lining of my Mystique. That didn't happen with either of Trilliums. Another difference is that the hood is smaller and doesn't have an outside adjustment strip. Could be a good thing because the Trillium's hood is just gigantic; on the other hand, you have less flexibility and wont be able to get the hood to your face, really.
I am 5' 10" tall and 123 lbs, and 34" in the bust, 28" in the waist and 37" in the hips.
Overall, from the first impression, Mystique is unbelievably light-weghted for the promised warmth, sits well and has plenty of room. Runs nearly the full length even on a tall person like me.
