Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 6"
Weight: 180 lbs
Size Purchased: large

Just received my Gravity jacket and initial impression is that its well made and should be fine for the colder weather. I'm 5'6, 180 pounds, 42" chest and the large was comfortable size for me, however, if anything it runs small. Medium which I sometimes fit would have definitely been too small.
Update to my initial review 12/3/17, Definitely runs very small. Arms and chest are tight if I wear a ski sweater. XL would have fit better if it wasn't too long. I'd return it if I didn't buy it during the summer and have it for 4 months.

I am a bit disappointed with how a pair of my first blue sandals that have a two piece sole held up. They're advertised as being usable in the water, but after using them for 1-2 years or so, the two parts of the sole fell apart because the glue broke down. The rest of the sandal was fine and I'd still have them if the sole didn't fall apart. Keen could easily correct this problem by making a one piece sole.
Also, I tried using Plumbers Goop and Shoe Goo to repair them. It held for a while and then they fell apart again, so I tossed them. The most recent pair of Keens that I bought will be my last try with this brand.

I've used this glove for about 10 days of skiing and found them to be warm and comfortable. They're definitely well made and should last a long time. I never thought I had very big hands and usually wear a large. In this glove, I was more comfortable in an XL.

I'm 5'6, 178lbs and the first pair of Guide gloves I received was a large and these were definitely too small. My middle finger is 3" , thumb is 2-1/4" and pinky is 2-1/2" long. I exchanged them for an extra large pair and these feel better, but even these feel a bit tight. I think I'll keep them and hope that they stretch out a bit and become more comfortable. Appear to be very well made.

I'm very happy with this jacket. I skied the past 3 days in the single digits and I was very warm using this jacket as my outer shell. I had 4 layers underneath and stayed warm all day and never felt any wind. Lots of room to add layers and move comfortably. Would definately buy this jacket again.

I figured if I bought a glove called the "Ultimate Ski Glove" that is what I would get, but this is definately not the case. I decided after many years of using a Gates glove I'd spend a significant amount of money on the Marmot gloves and upgrade. Unfortunately, I switched back this past weekend to my old Gates gloves and my hands were warmer. The Marmot gloves are definately well made and sharp looking, they're just not warm and there is no where in the glove to add heater packs.
Calling them the Ultimate Ski Glove is very misleading and the name should be changed. I would say the gloves are good down to 20 degrees and nothing lower.
