Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small

I've had this shoe for about 8 months, I wear it a few times a week, inside and outside. I'd consider myself somewhere between a beginner and intermediate, and I boulder, crack climb and gym climb, and I wanted something that did it all. These shoes fit great, I agree with others that the sizing is off, but I don't know anyone that has ordered a pair of shoes without having to try on a few different sizes. Thanks to these shoes I have become much more confident in my feet. I would not consider these an aggressive shoe, but that's not how they are advertised, I got exactly what I was looking for.

I got this off of SAC the other day, it was a great deal, but I think I'm sending it back. I loved the quality and the color, with the different color in the hood.
I have the Cloudveil RPK shell and I like to wear it with a down layer underneath, the Marmot Ama Dablam Down. Unfortunately, the Inversion Jacket didn't give me the same freedom of movement I was seeking to replace. It was a very light jacket, but a lot longer than I had expected and the arms were made for a body builder. I don't like when my insulating layers are too big. I also found that the quilted look is more faltering than the horizontal seems.

This is an amazing jacket. It fits very well and doesn't give me the football player look that Arcteryx jackets give me. The pockets inside and out are great, with lots of place to store things. I wouldn't really consider it a soft shell, I would put it in the technical shell category. The only issue I noticed was the hood isn't helmet compatible, which is weird for a jacket recommended for skiing.

I am very happy with these goggles. I got them because they match my skis, but I have ended up wearing them more than any of my other goggles. The lens works very well on flat days and night skiing. I have had some problems with goggles that are too large for my face and these fit perfectly. My only gripe is that I can't seem to be able to keep the lenses clear.

I have a lot of little racers in these pants. They hold up well to the constant beating kids can put on their gear. The only thing that I have seen come up is problems with the full length zipper. This zipper is pretty important to racers and used a lot, so it's a real pain when its freezing cold and you're trying to unjam the zip.
