Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 3"
Weight: 190 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

I have the lofoten jacket already and have been eyeing these pants to match since last year. Given the steep price I was waiting for a good deal on sale and as soon as I saw these at the price, I jumped and so glad I did. Ive been nothing short of amazed and impressed by the jacket, the pants do not dissapoint! Unreal fit, the features on the pants is genius, the included bib or the skirt all perfectly and easily attach to the jacket to make a bomb proof kit! I cant wait to get on the mountain in these! And to be honest, id be happy to pay the regular price for any Norrona gear, its that good! But getting any on sale feels like im stealing!

True to size...i wear an 11.5 and bought a 46 = Money. Great support in the heel, I did replace the insole for my specialized BG blue insole and its perfect for me. Yes I did read the manual and they say to "only use sidi insoles or they cannot guarantee function....". Risk im willing to take ;). Love the white color and its holding up just fine after 3 looong rides in Denver. Straps hold very secure, i think the rubber grip inserts between the velcro straps really do work, never felt like i had to re-do the straps after 4+ hours of riding. Solid shoe. One point to make, i had read online that shimano cleats on sidi shoes needed longer 10mm bolts or it would strip the threads in the shoe...i had/have no issues at all with the 8mm bolts that came with my ultegra pedals. Maybe thats old news?

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

Just received this jacket yesterday so this is just an initial review as I obviously haven't even been outside in the jacket never mind skiing in it (it's July!). But I can say my initial thoughts are this jacket is incredibly well made. Top notch feel, seams, zippers, all feels very high end. I'm just under 6'4" tall, 200lbs, 42L suit size, 35" waist, and the XL fit perfectly. Excellent length of the sleeves and below waist/butt for great snow coverage. With it being a Euro company I think the overall fit is a tad on the smaller side even though I labelled it true to size, it is, but compared to a US XL it is on the "slim" side. I was worried i'd be swimming in an XL (like I am in my current Rossignol insulated jacket) but it's not at all. I debated between a L and XL but knowing I would be layering underneath I went XL and glad I did. I also bought a fleece jacket in Large to use under this jacket, perfect fit for me. I look forward to using it this season. Lofoten Pants coming next!

*UPDATE*
After wearing this Jacket several times now skiing in ranging weather conditions, I am VERY happy with it.
In cold/windy weather (-5 and below) just be sure to bulk up on the mid layers but in the teens i've often had to remove a midlayer I was so warm. Access to pockets is great with the HUGE side openings and the hood is excellent, very easy to slip over my helmet. The fit and quality of the jacket is just so superior to anything I have had previously.
