Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These have been my everyday ski gloves for the past 5 seasons. They're still going strong but I liked this style so much that I decided to buy a pair for whenever the current ones wear out. They're comfortable, warm, durable and provide great dexterity though the price can be hard to swallow. On the coldest days, I opt for something warmer. They're also not the greatest in wet conditions though waterproofing helps and it's not much of an issue for me here in Utah.

I bought a pair of these a couple years ago when I showed up for a ride having forgotten my socks at home. They're comfortable and have held up well. This is the year I'm finally switching over to dedicated bike socks so I just bought a couple more at a great price. The colors are a bit loud so I opted for black. My only complaint might have been that they're thinner than I'm used to but I've gotten over that.

This is my third pair of these frames. I keep a bright light lens (sol-x) in one of them, a low light (red sensor) in the other for cloudy days, and a clear lens in the final pair for night skiing so I don't have to swap them out. I tend to be fairly abusive to my lenses so it's very important for me to be able to swap out the lenses without having to buy an entirely new pair of goggles. These look great (particularly with the mirrored sol-x lenses) and integrate seamlessly with Smith's helmets.

I have two sets of Satoro tops and bottoms in black for everyday skiing. They're great and are exactly what I was looking for. In warmer weather I have a Phase set I default to. The merino construction was an important factor if my choice of these. The price was a bit hard to initially swallow but I trust in the quality of Arc'teryx and these will last for many seasons to come.

I have not experienced any itchiness like expressed by another reviewer here.

I've got a pair of these already and love them. I've had those for probably 5 years now and they're still in great shape. They're pretty thin gloves so I primarily use them for spring skiing. I recently managed to find a pair in Forest/Cork in my size on sale and couldn't resist and now have a backup lined up for whenever my originals wear out.

I ski both days most weekends and this is a great tool to help ensure my boots (or gloves) are dry Sunday morning. I opted for this more expensive version with the timer so I don't have to worry about turning it off. If this price is too high for you to justify, check out the other: http://www.backcountry.com/therm-ic-boot-dryer-120v

Big Forsake fan here. I bought these as lifestyle boots although they're clearly intended for more burly use. I could do with a couple extra holes instead of the hooks (they take longer to tie) and a bit less ankle support but these are risks I knowingly took buying hiking boots with a lesser purpose in mind. They're comfortable and fit great. I bought mine in black, which is a very sharp look.

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

I bought these as a gift for my sister. She wanted a pair of I/Os but I pointed that they were overkill given she lives in NYC and only goes on a ski trip or two each season. These seemed to be a much better value fit for her needs.

I've wanted a pair of these as slippers to wear around the house for a long time and am very pleased I finally decided to pull the trigger. They're really comfortable and surprisingly warm. I was particularly impressed by what I thought was a pretty reasonable price. Highly recommended.
