Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have used these in various conditions including snow, rain, and sunshine. They have worked great so far in terms of staying on and keeping debris out of my shoes. I also like that they add a layer of warmth to my feet so I often wear them when I really do not need to. There is a little clip at the boot end to secure the gaiter to the laces but I don't really use it because the gaiter stays pretty well.
The only complaint I have is with the leg strap, which others have complained about as well. It can be hard to get it tight enough to stay up so I can see how people with smaller calves might have trouble with cinching it. And once you do cinch it, there is no where to store the strap so it just hangs off the calves flapping in the wind. I like to stuff through the velcro because I don't like to seeing it flying around. Other than that, these are great and have served me well!

Beginner Mountaineer
4 5

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

As a beginner mountaineer like myself, I wasn't sure what to look for in an ice axe so I got what seemed practical and basic. So far, it has been great for hiking up and down steep ridge lines. I removed the leash that came with it as well as the rubber stopper on it because it was annoying and not long enough. I slipped my own sling on it and have been much happier. It feels sturdy and perhaps a little heavier than what an experienced mountaineer would want but for me it has been great so far.

Fit: Runs large

These pants are great but rather big on me. I'm 5'4" and lots of comments said they were fitting. But I've found that the waist and legs are too big. I have space for leggings under and then some so that's the only disappointment I have. Otherwise, the length is fine, the material is great, and overall they are really comfortable. The pockets are nice too, including the zip pocket on the leg.

Fit: True to size

This is a great light-weight pull over. I bought a medium even though I'm usually small because I'm not big on the skin tight clothing. Thus the medium is rather baggy for my 5'4" 105lb frame. But the length on it is great. I went running in it and got a bit too warm. It's thin and stretchy too.

Fit: Runs small

Yes...runs small. But since I didn't return it I still use it anyways. Fortunately I'm not someone that actually needs a whole lot of support in the chest area so I manage wearing it, even though it's perhaps a whole size too small. I would say there's nothing particularly special or exciting about this sports bra. The thin straps make it somewhat uncomfortable but that could also just be a consequence of the small size.

I really like this pullover. I wore it for a short hike on a cool morning and it kept me warm. But I usually just wear as a casual shirt with leggings or pants because the bright pink is fun. The fit is decent; everything is a great length, just a little wide for me. But overall, one of my favorite things to wear these days!
