Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've used this helmet a handful of times now, hanging out with beginners, on blue cruisers, and on the steeps. I kept wanting it to be an awesome helmet, because the fit was great, but no matter how fast I went, it never cooled off. The helmet is just way too warm. I even took out the liner (which made the helmet uncomfortable) and it still was too hot. Other than that, the helmet has a great fit, lines up well with Smith goggles, and has an awesome look. So I'd recommend this for anyone who wants to stay really warm.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These bindings are top of the line. I've been riding in CO for 6 years now, 15+ days on the slopes each season (one season of 30+ days). It was time to upgrade at the beginning of this past season (2013/2014), I got a 2012/2013 Arbor A-Frame Board with these bindings. These bindings provide the response and feel of strap in bindings with the convenience of rear entry. These bindings are made to carve and respond very well to every movement (NOT for Park). These are meant for high speed and holding a tight line. The NASTY system is sweet and makes it easy to get in and out. Lastly, you can still strap in when you hike into powder and can't use the rear entry (did this multiple times). The ratchets aren't as big and easy to use as normal strap in bindings, but can still be used with gloves or mittens on. Only minor downside, it will take time to dial in this set up, but will save a boat load of time compared to strapping in and out. I'd buy this binding again even at full price, sturdy as all hell, awesome materials and components.

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

I should have known better, I bought the Yellow Saffron Norrona Loften Gor-Tex Pro Shell for my wife. She's always a size medium (in "American Sizes"), large is always too big, small is always too small for her. This product DOESN'T run small, it's exactly how Backcountry noted, look at "PLEASE NOTE:" above. I tried surprising my wife with it and bought a medium without checking the sizing chart, had I checked and bought the right size this jacket would have been perfect for her.

Other than that, the jacket out of the bag was awesome. Great weight, features, feel, and it has the hour glass athletic fit. I'd put love it if we didn't have to return it....and now it's no longer on sale. Maybe next year I'll try again!
