My perpetually cold 13 year old loves this jacket for skiing. After 3 years trying different 3-in-1 combos, this Marmot did the trick. Seems well made, durable, etc. He wore it to 2 RSL games where it poured rain and stayed dry. His only complaint is it is too bulky to fit in his locker at school.

These pants do just what I hoped. Cut is nice -- roomy enough for whatever base layers I need, but not baggy. Material has a nice soft feel -- not crinkly or noisy like some. Pockets big enough to be useful. No vents or anything, but this isn't meant to be a backcountry pant. Just a nice, solid resort pant.

This jacket is has some improvements over your 'average' fleece. The hardface exterior looks great, keeps the jacket from looking fuzzy, and actually puts up a bit of a fight against drizzle and cool breezes. Not waterproof, for sure, but somewhat more resistant than other fleece jackets I've had. The hood seems like a bit of a gimmick, but it has actually become a favorite feature. The hood is slim fitting and works well under my ski or climbing helmet when I need a little more warmth. And the balaclava actually works nicely. Moderately warm - my last fleece was an R2, and the Patagonia was warmer (under a shell, at least - the R2 was not water or wind resistant at all, plus it was so furry looking, to the point that I hardly ever wore it alone). But the Fortrez under my shell keeps me warm skiing into the 20's. Finally, it looks nice enough to wear around.

Love these pants. In just the last 7 days I've worn them backpacking in mid 60 degrees sunny Canyonlands desert and snowshoeing in 30 degree heavy snow in Little Cottonwood. Light weight but sturdy material. DWR puts up a good fight - I've worn them in off and on drizzle all day in the Uintas and they kept me plenty dry. Kneeling in the snow to adjust snow shoes didn't result in wet knees. And when they do wet through, like where my jacket drips on to my pants or the thighs, they dry out within a few minutes after precipitation stops. Not a substitute for a true waterproof pant, to be sure, but good enough that I now leave my rain pants at home unless significant rain is in the forecast. Thin and provide no insulation, but they keep the wind at bay. Finally, the cut is great. Athletic and roomy enough for my dino quads without being baggy (I'm 6' 220 and the XL fits me great). As I already mentioned, I'll use these for everything from backpacking and hiking in cool to moderate temps, snowshoeing and backcountry skiing in good conditions, and everything in between.

These glasses work great for cold, low light, and brighter light conditions that I experience on my bike commute every day. Very comfortable to wear, good sight lines (no frames blocking side vision), etc. They lighten up enough that I can wear and see when it is dark, but provide enough sun protection to do the trick riding home in the afternoon. Best photochromic glasses I've had.

Edit -- I have the "light fototec" version.
