Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 165 lbs
Size Purchased: large

I waited to write this review for several weeks after I started to use these. Need to thank the other reviewers for the size comments - I ordered a large when I would normally order a medium and they fit great. I tried a pair of GORE mittens first and they were lighter weight and they also run small (everything from GORE does as far as I can tell). I sent them back and got these. They are more substantial material and warmer than the GORE mittens. I have worn them for running only for about a month now - approximately 4 times per week. I don't have a single complaint. I have been out on mornings when temps were in the low teens and wind blowing and these mittens were great. There is a lot of stitching around the base of the fingers as other reviewers have pointed out, but getting the larger size makes that not so much a problem - in fact, I kind of like it. Highly recommend.

I got this jacket last night. In terms of fabric, it is unbelievable. Whisper thin and very cool looking - I love it. However, I put it on and thought it was going to cut off the circulation to my arms! I am 5'9" and about 165 lbs. in pretty decent shape. Usually a medium fits great on me - I am not even a "big medium". The medium in this jacket was way way off - too small. It seems like MH puts all the emphasis on advancing the fabric and has great success there, but then screws up the pieces with their quirky sizing. I am going to try a large, but I am not confident that some other aspect of the sizing won't be off kilter. Other than the sizing issue, this is a nice piece of gear!
