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

I ordered a size up because I read it runs small, and in fact it does. The medium fits snugly, but not suffocating. I'm relatively small - 5'4, 120 lbs and I can fit a couple base layers under it comfortably. It also fits well under my snowboarding jacket, which is just a shell. It's super light and can be stuffed into a bag or medium size purse (perfect if you want to wear it to a bar or somewhere that you don't feel like holding it).

It's very warm. I haven't actually gotten to wear it snowboarding, but I work outside in the field and when it's coupled with my snowboarding jacket, it keeps me warm on the coldest of days (tested it down to 15 degrees, haven't had the opportunity to test it on colder days).

The inside zipper pocket is a really nice feature - great for easy access to keys, cards, etc (might too small for some larger phones). As another review mentioned, the wrist guards are kind of annoying since their so tight and i like to pull my hands inside the sleeves sometimes. But definitely not a huge factor. Great overall jacket, just buy a size up.

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

I'm 5'4 and normally a size 0, but sometimes wear a 2 if I'm looking more for comfort. I bought these because I work out in the field and needed something that would keep me warm and be durable at the same time. I ordered a size 2 and they didn't fit, at all. I could hardly get them all the way on, let alone zipper them. So I exchanged them, skipped a size, and ordered a size 6 to be safe (I've never worn anything larger than a 2). The 6 is little too big, but with a belt, it's fine for what I need, especially since I may be pairing it with thermal pants when the weather really drops. Other than that, the pants look and feel great.
