Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 190 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

Good softshell pants for ski touring, but could be much better.
The Good: Breathable, lightweight, gaiters, 2 vents per leg (one mesh thigh, one open calf), great hand/beacon pockets, integrated belt
The Bad: The lower vents are odd - they should have mesh backing and have 2 zippers (not just 1). The vents only open from the bottom, which lets in lots of snow if you're in deep powder. Gaiters - they barely fit over my Scarpa Freedom SL ski boots and the pants leg does not fit.
Very lightweight overall, they block wind to a certain extent, not are very breathable. If you sit down in the snow or let show/ice collect in the folds of the pants, they'll soak through.
Sizing: I wear 34x34 jeans and the medium pants fit well - size large are much too large (both waist and length).

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

I've only worn these a couple of times - once at -4 F, once at 10 F and they've kept my feet warm both times. Sizing is slightly, just slightly small. I normally wear size 11 boots, ordered these in size 11 and with a mid-weight pair of wool socks, they're slightly snug. Traction is good on snow, haven't tested on ice yet

6' 2", 180 lbs...large is slightly...large. I most likely could have gotten away with medium - the sleeves are slightly long and the body is slightly large. But, that makes for a great outer jacket that I can layer a lighter down jacket and thermals under. With a mid-weight fleece, it works well down to 0 deg F just walking around. I live in Fairbanks, AK and with this jacket, layered with a Basin & Range Wasatch 800 down jacket, I'm good down to -30 with only a t-shirt underneath.
