Super light and comfortable. No problems with phone interaction. A bit cold when you start running, and not the best wind resistance, but everything I needed. I've only used these a few times because the weather warmed up as soon as I bought them. Can't beat the price!

Super grippy for holding your axes. Durable and thick knuckle protection. All the warmth you could need while ice climbing, without sweaty palms. I bit cold if you're just standing around, but not that bad, and what I would expect for an "Ice Climbing glove". Plenty of dexterity for tieing knots and using ice screws.

I've only had these for a few weeks, so I can not comment on the long term durability, but the shoe seems to be made very well. Fits me true to size and the laces make it easy to tie the shoe according to your foot and running style. I only gave it four stars due to the break-in time, which either I'm still in or it's not going to happen. I strike with my midfoot, and my feet tend to start hurting with these around mile 5, not unbearable, just a bit uncomfortable. I will update this after a few months with more information..

Stop thinking about how weird toe socks might feel and just get them. I have several types of Injinji most for running. This one is a bit thicker and makes for a great hiking sock, and even a good everyday sock. For colder weather these are perfect for a thicker liner too.

Amazingly warm for how light it is, stuffs down pretty well too. The fit is great, I like the elastic around the wrists because it's easier for gloves to fit over. No hold ups or problems with the zipper. The waist and hood have drawstrings, and tighten down well. And the pockets keep your hands as warm as gloves do. I did a 5 mile hike in 25 degree weather (only wearing a Stoic baselayer) and had to leave the jacket unzipped. I haven't been rained on yet, so I can't comment on that, but the material looks to be water resistant at most. I wouldn't take it in the rain without a rain jacket. As I said though, I haven't been rained on yet, so I could be wrong.

Super comfortable, great material. No itchy tags incide. Fits great, and works exactly how you want it. My arms are a bit long, so the thumb holes get uncomfortable after a few minutes. Slightly thin, so first impression seems like it's not going to be that warm, but it is. Not sure how they do, magic i suppose.
