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

Everyones gear is different, but for me, this is a perfect size. It comfortably fits everything I carry to the mountain ..... helmet, goggles, boots, gloves, gaiters, mask, lunch, etc. When I do a pre-office ski, I can squeeze in my shells, base layer, socks and all that jazz too. I only gave it 4 stars because I am not sure about durability, seems maybe a little thinner material then my previous REI co-op buy. The straps are quite comfortable as well.

I love in a CO mountain town and needed an "everyday" summer jacket .. its perfect. Just enough insulation the keep the cold AM walks to the bus comfortable. Holds off the afternoon thundershower just fine. Not a "technical shell" by any means, but does exactly what its supposed to perfectly well.

I got this thinking it would be my go to shell in the summer that would cover all bases, with one packable shell. While I have found it has been useful as a windshell for early morning mountain bike rides, it gets hot pretty quickly and does nothing in the rain. If I were going camping for a long weekend or a backpacking trip I'd rather just bring a proper waterproof shell for rain and a lighter material long sleeve shirt that breathes better for highly aerobic endeavors. When it wears out, I'll pay up for a better version of this product.

a few trips in, love this bag. it's a great size, just right for so many types of trips. I think what I love the best so far is its obvious quality. even when really stuffing the bag to its intended full size, you don't see seams stretching or have difficulty with the zippers. if I needed a complimentary larger bga, I'd buy the same again in a heartbeat!

I've used this a half dozen times so far for snow shoeing in alpine conditions (15 - 40 degrees) and skiing in moderate conditions (sunny + 45ish). I've been very pleased with its ability to shed wind, but provide breathability while exerting. It's shed snow perfectly well and kept me dry. The size seems to be just right, a M gives me room for a right sized mid layer. Everyone is different, but for me I'd probably switch over to my winter hard shell next time if its in the teens, that seems about the point @ which I could feel cold coming through the shell. The hood is great. I love the construction, I think this is a great complement to a burly hard shell in any winter enthusiasts closet.

I am surprised by the poor reviews so far. I've used them a half dozen times so far snow shoeing on and off trails, and found them to be exactly what I expected .... my feet have stayed dry, warm and quite comfortable for the 3 hours of my trek. Compared to leather + rubber 'polar boots, they are much more lightweight. If you're going to be sticking mainly to trails or snow shoeing for a few hours, I think these fit the bill. If you want something for all day comfort in submerged snow, then I'd spend up for a beefier choice.

Lightweight yes .... cost effective yes ... but they started ripping @ 3 different spots in the seams after just 3 rides. after 5 rides, the palm seam blew apart all together. I appreciate bc.com allowing me to return these, but I wouldn't bother with these in favor of spending more on something durable.
