Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This helmet is about perfect. The fit works really well with my large oval dome. I have a 61cm head and the L/XL fits well with adjustment to go bigger. I really like the dial head adjustment and the separate dial to adjust the vents. Low profile and weight for a fully featured MIPS helmet.

Size Purchased: Large

I love these pants but you need to size up. I am 180lbs, 6'1" with a 32 waist and the large is a trim fit on me. I couldn't even zip up the mediums. They have a built in short bib that is not removable. There are a couple of small zip pockets on the bib that work really well for small items. The cargo pockets are large and hold a lot if needed. They are very light but seem durable. Love the full size zips for adjusting my knee brace and venting when it gets hot. I have been using them all year backcountry skiing with a handful of resort days. I don't know how well they would hold up to a lot of resort use but for the backcountry or mountaineering they are perfect.

So far I really like these skins. They grip fairly well but not as well as a full nylon but that is to be expected. They grip slightly better than a G3 alpinist but glide better. They also resist moisture, pack small and seem really durable. I have about 35 days on them and no issues so far. The glue is amazing. It hold tight but rips easy. Also shows no signs of wearing down.

These base layers are great. I like mine so much I bought one for my wife. They fit snug, regulate heat and dry quick. They also seen to be more durable than a lot of other merino base layers. This has been my go to backcounty skiing base layer.

These are great for river trips and for wet wading when fishing. They are pretty durable and do a good job at keeping your feet warm.
