Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 170 lbs
Size Purchased: 12

I usually hike in trail running shoes (lately Brooks Cascadia 11), but for big days with a pack or crampon-questionable outings (yes, strap-ons work, but don't get any ideas about technical footwork), these things are amazing. They're light but supportive and feel great all day -- you might even jog that last mile to the car. The e-vent is good for snow and stream crossings but it does keep your feet toasty. I do a sock swap at lunch to keep the swampiness at bay.

As for sizing, I'm somewhere between a 12 and 12.5 and went with the 12s. They fit great, though I have pretty narrow feet. As for in-brand sizing, I've run in a few different Hokas and these fit and feel more like the Bondi than the ATR 2.

These gloves are amazing. Fit, dexterity, warmth, versatility: they've got it all. I can resort ski in them on super cold days and take out the liner to tour in them. I'm super impressed and would recommend them to anyone. That said, the price is steep. I got mine through the outlet section (I think someone returned them). If not for that, I'd probably be rocking some work gloves coated with snoseal.

These pants are aces. Bombproof materials, great design, good cut, huge vents. It's worth noting that they're baggy. I use different pants when I ice climb or go xc-skiing, but for lift-service and backcountry touring with the buds, these are perfect.

This jacket has all the quality and attention to detail you'd expect at this price point. I've been out a dozen days so far, and it seems completely bombproof and really well designed. By cut, it's more lift-skiing oriented, but you can certainly tour and get after some technical fun in it, though the pockets don't agree with a harness.

One note: it's a baggy cut. I'm tall-ish and skinny (6' 2" 165) and the medium is plenty spacious, even with a big belay jacket underneath. My buddy says its steez. Whatever it is, I'm stoked.
