Finally had a chance to wear these pants and I must say I really liked them. They are warm but not overly hot, have great stretch and the fleece lining is very soft and cozy. I tested these out in 35-40º temps and never felt really uncomfortable.

Regarding the sizing, in most pants I wear a 32 x 32 and I found these to be true to size in both the waist and in the inseam. They maybe 1/4-1/2" larger in the waist, but I find this an acceptable variance. These are not however slim fit pants and I would say the legs openings are closer to a standard straight fit pant or slightly relaxed straight fit pant. They are a little baggy, but I find the look acceptable with a pair of boots, hiking shoes or old school New Balance sneakers. They won't look good with a pair of Vans or similar styled shoe, but then again, why are you wearing this type of pant with that style of shoe?

Overall, I am giving these 4 stars as i would like to have seen a slightly slimmer leg or at least some adjust-ability at the cuff, similar to what the Marmot Scree Pants have.

...your sleeves are too short.

So I decided to purchase a Glissade jacket due to my love affair with my synchilla pullover. They synchilla pullover is a cozy piece that is great to lounge around in, but offers very little wind protection on those cool days when I am too lazy to throw a jacket on but the wind decides to come along and rip right through me. So I purchased the glissade with the hope that this would offer me the lazy warmth I was looking for with a little added wind protection. Because the synchilla runs large, I purchased a size small and find that it fits wonderfully, including the arm length, chest, shoulders and waist. The synchilla is a generous cut that is a great non-technical piece.

After reading a few reviews, I decided to purchase a size Medium in the glissade because it's not as roomy and oversized as the synchilla. Overall, the length,chest and shoulders of the medium glissade fits great while providing a little extra room. I am a 40" chest and the medium closer to a 42" chest. The fabric is great. The fleece is warm and cozy and the nylon shell is stretchy and does ok blocking wind. Overall, I would love this jacket save for the sleeves being so short that if I reach for anything (up, down, in front of me, or to the side) the sleeves ride up to the middle of my forearm. When I have my arms straight down, the sleeves fall just past my wrists. Its a weird cut that i just can't figure out.Again, the jacket fits well everywhere else, and even offers a bit extra room in the chest, waist and shoulders, but those sleeves blow. I don't have this issue at all with the synchilla which is too bad because for me personally, I wanted to love the glissade as much as the synchilla.

After wearing this jacket around the house for a few days, I decided to return it. It's just not the jacket for me. If your a person with short(er) arms, this would be a great jacket.

Bought this off of Steep and Cheap. Love the belt. Fits well and stays put. My only complaint is that the black belt with white dots is definitely not black. It's more of a navy and I believe this has something to do with the dye they used on the polyester. Not a deal breaker but I did want a black belt and not a blue one.

Well I bought this jacket because it was 50% off and I need a new winter jacket for the Nebraska winters. Overall, I really like this jacket. it's a great fit, both in length of sleeve and body, and fits around my chest, shoulders and waist very well. the hood is a little bit, but not at all a deal breaker. the shell fabric feels very solid and durable and the insulation seems pretty toasty (wore about the house for a bit). Im excited to put this baby to use this winter.

I've not been able to wear this jacket yet, as it is summer and i purchased because it was 50% off. Overall I really like the jacket. It's lightweight, fits very well and looks great. yes the hood is huge, but it's made to go over a helmet so keep that in mind when you buy a helmet compatible hooded jacket. Can't wait to see how this performs in the winter.

I was skeptical when my two pillows showed up, but wow are they amazing. The foam really puffs up one you open them up and let them relax. This is my go-to traveling/camping/flying pillow. Only wish they came with a cover...I tend to drool a little :)
