Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small

First pair of lobster gloves, and they take some getting used to but that is more user issue than design so I couldn't knock them for that. I have some really nice Gore gloves I used but anything colder than 35 those start to get chilly so I figured I would just use some ski gloves. The fingers would get tight and chilly below 30 being individually wrapped, so I thought I would try these. Wow have these met expectations. I have taken these out without any liners in the low 20's and my hands are so warm and comfy. Really anything over 35 and I find these are too warm. Love these gloves. Wish I would have gotten the screaming yellows, but the blacks were on sale when I purchased them. But these are significantly warmer than regular gloves, and ski gloves that are not mitten style. Also of note, size these up. I usually use XL gloves in everything, from ski gloves, my biking gloves, and hospital gloves (where I work) and I had to return the XLs and get the XXLs.

Size Purchased: XXL

I commute to work every day with my bike in Northern Idaho. Current temp this morning was 27 degrees. I was just fine and comfy in them. Super comfy. Feels like you are wearing PJs. Very soft against the skin. Very stretchy, and movable. Done feel any impedance in my ROM. Also the overall portion are also very comfy. I will admit if I used these in anything over 40 I am usually a little warmer than I want to be. I will definitely be buying another few pair.

Fit: Runs small

I decided to buy this jacket after trying many jackets one due to fit, feel and what I thought would perform the best. I bought this jacket also because I wanted to be able to ride in 0-20 degree weather. I am sure I will need a base layer for that. I took this jacket out yesterday for a 40 mile ride here in SLC. It was a little wet and cool (45) with 10-15 mph head winds. I didn't use a base layer on my ride, and I had to unzip the jacket 2/3 of the way down so I didn't over heat. I am sure I could take this jacket to the 35 mark without feeling to cold without a base layer. The jacket moves with you very well. The jacket has a neck warmer build in that comes from the back of the collar and wraps around your neck. Yesterday I didn't need it on my neck, but I used it as ear covers and it worked perfectly, so that was very nice. Tons of room in the pockets, 4 in total. Know this, the jacket does not have vents, so it is geared for very cold riding, so really I think 45 is the absolute max heat this jacket could be used for. Like I said I had to unzip it most of the way. The wind stopper is awesome, couldn't even feel the wind at all other than pressure on jacket. Did not feel cold. I say that it fits a little small but that is misleading. I also have Pearl Izumi barrier. I have always had to buy the XXL due the my arms. Usually the body is way to big for me, and arms are too small. This jacket I got the XXL, and the body is pretty well fitted, and the arms are a little more roomy than expected. So body smaller, arms bigger if that makes sense. I am larger rider 6'0" 250 lbs. I love this jacket, looks and feels good, and performs very well.
