Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 195 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

This jacket exceeded my expectations for a technical softshell. The 4-way stretch woven material is light and comfortable. It doesn't restrict movement even with a down insulation layer underneath. The hood is perfect and the harness-compatible pockets make it a great option for windy/cold/damp climbing days. I also love the design and can get away wearing this casually to work or the local pub. While not technically "waterproof" I've worn this jacket on wet days and stayed dry through light rain.

The only thing preventing this from being a 5-star review is the slightly awkward fit. I'm 6'1'' 195lbs and purchased a large. The length is perfect in the torso and arms, and the torso has just enough room for technical layering without being super baggy sans layers. My only complaint is that the jacket is a bit tight in the shoulders. I have an athletic build but by no means would consider myself bulky enough to warrant a large jacket being tight across the shoulders. With only a t-shirt underneath, the shoulders are already stretched a bit and while the material prevents any range of motion restrictions, it is still noticeable enough to feel awkward. This is amplified with the addition of any layering underneath (once again not restricting motion rather than just feeling a bit too snug). I still give this jacket 4 stars and will continue to wear whenever I can, but felt the awkward fit worth mentioning.

I purchased these pants recently and absolutely love them. If you're like me and wish you could wear sweatpants all the time but are told they're not "socially acceptable" or that you "look like a bum," buy these pants. No one will ever have to know that you're more comfortable and warmer than they'll ever be (until you show them the lining and they buy a pair for themselves).

Deep pockets make them ideal for the ever enlarging phones on the market, and the side pocket provides some extra utility. The flannel lining is comfortable and warm without being obnoxiously bulky or restricting movement. I was worried about the length at purchase since there were no alternative options, however I was pleasantly surprised by the ample length for my long legs. Great fall/winter pant, 10/10, would buy again.
