Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size
Size Purchased: 10

So my wife has had these for about a year now and they are a stellar pair of rainboots and even work great as snowboots! The fit is perfect and as expected. My wife wears a size 10 usually (occasionally 11s) and the 10 fits her perfectly, despite her narrow and skinny feet. They keep her feet dry even when she's puddle jumping (she's a bit of 5 year old at heart)! The boots wash off/clean up great as well. They are a bit clunkier than your run of the mill rainboot, but I think that's to be expected with this type of higher quality rainboot. We do live on a tropical island though, so a lot of the time it's too warm for her to wear these awesome boots. But once we move back to the states, (hopefully to a colder location) she'll be able to wear these regularly without having to deal with overheating. She also wore them as snow boots when we traveled up to Hokkaido, Japan, where there is TONS of snow. It was pretty chilly up there and her feet managed to stay super dry and warm the entire time with just regular wool socks on. She's also traveled for a full day in them, and they are comfortable enough to wear on planes, trains, more planes, walking miles in the rain, and then walking in the snow another couple miles. I will say though, she loves these boots so much that often times, if it's in the 70s out here on our little island, and pretty wet, she'll still forgo being hot and wear the boots anyway, just to keep her feet dry! These seem very durable as well, and come in a variety of colors. I got her the gray ones, but I think she would have been happy with any of the colors they come in. Thanks to Bogs for making a great rainboot/snowboot!

These shorts are awesome! My wife is 5'8" with an athletic build (read: 154 lbs of muscular booty and legs) and these fit her perfectly in a size 6. Normally, she has problems finding shorts/pants that fit (small enough) in the waist , due to her curves but these fit her perfectly all around. The eyelet fabric in the blue color looks great and she loves them. They're comfortable as well, and not too short or long in length. She is normally a size 6 in Prana and these fit her as expected.

I bought this thinking it'd be a GREAT travel water bottle, since we travel a ton. The idea of this water bottle is fantastic. It's completely collapsible and gets very tiny if you need to pack it in a bag for travel. The only problem is there is a major silicone taste to anything you put in the bottle. I thought it was the water at first, but I've now tried putting purified water in it as well, and even used Nuun tablets to flavor the water, and yet still can taste a major silicone flavor (which the bottle is advertised not to have) in anything I put in the bottle. So wish this water bottle didn't have that issue, as it is an otherwise perfect water bottle!!

I really liked skiing in these bad boys - they're a run-of-the mill ski pant that gives you the right options without an insane price tag. The front pocket's good for stashing bulkier stuff - velcro closure is solid but i wouldn't put my keys in it. The venting system is pretty smart in how provides a gaiter that keeps the snow out but lets air flow most of the way up your leg. Knees are a little articulated for comfort and there's a fleecy lining (NOT insulated). There's an extra layer of canvas where your boots rub together for durability too. Adjustable waist straps are a must if you're skiing over the holidays and grandpa won't lend you his suspenders.
Usually wear a 32"/32" and the Med/Reg was right on.

Wore these for some long ski days in Colorado and they performed very well. I really like how the pseudo-gauntlet construction locks out the snow but keeps from getting caught on stuff, filled with powder, or looking like a cartoon villain. The zipper makes them easy to get on/off too. Warm and waterproof with burly construction that kinda reminds me of a hockey glove.
There's room for improvement on the dexterity: a seam runs down the middle of each fingertip, and the glove's taking a bit to break in. Also, the merino lining is a towel-like knit that adds warmth but tears up your cuticles (boo hoo a hangnail)
~Made in China (the tag said it came with a hood & had a powderskirt!)
Great cold weather glove overall, just don't try to pick your nose with it

Just got a medium/flint in the mail. Color is way more of a dark gray than depicted; looks more like... Flint. Good initial quality with a lightweight-denim feel. Unfortunately, it has ~4 extra inches around the gut (than a medium Columbia silver ridge shirt) & not worth the effort to tailor.
-Made in India too if it matters

I'm 6' 165lbs - got a Large and have a little room. Comfortable, warm, breathable and stylish, this jacket straight up rocks. Looks good around town and is durable enough for the backcountry. Blocks a fair amount of wind and sheds some water. The inner lining makes it really soft on the skin without being too cumbersome. Don't expect the hood to fit like a Hoody -- not quite as comfortable but way better in the elements. And the inner cuff takes a little getting used to, but you won't want to go back after that.

Really like this thing... at 6' and 165lbs, large fits well length-wise with room for inevitable weight gain. The 4-way stretch and fleece-y inside make it pajama-grade comfortable with a great warmth-factor. Solid flat seam construction everywhere except the base of the collar isn't flat. Pocket is kinda small but just the right size for an ID, some cash and an iPod shuffle... and it's secured into the material so it won't flop around when you're moving. Gets good loft for the weight to keep heat in... 0% water resistant and ~50% wind resistant

Price is awesome for polartec gear, especially getting it from S&C ($35). Sharkskin color is a little paler than online, but still stylish.

Overall great design, 4.5 stars for some minor stuff - i'd like the cuff's a bit tighter and some sturdier zippers, etc. May update after I finish putting it through its paces.
