Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 200 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

This jacket runs larger than typical MH sizing, but at 5'10", 200lbs and size 44 chest, this jacket in size large fits well, with room underneath for a primoloft or thermoball down vest. I've worn it to work in an office setting and it works fine for driving. I would rate it comfortable in the 30-45degree range by itself,. Have worn a dozen times, but only in Winter so far. I appreciate the smooth outer shell face with the quilting on the inside. No inside pocket, but that might be difficult due to the synthetic insulation quilting. Very light, weighs less than my North Face Apex softshell.

I prefer the original Syncline shirt style instead of the newer style, but same great fabric. Very comfortable to wear, easy care, and unexpected benefit is that women love to touch this shirt! Honest! I have had a number of women ask me to touch these shirts, must be something about the perceived feel, and several asked for details on how to order for their husband/boyfriends, so TNF may have something going here.

I really love these snowshoes. I've used Redfeather, Tubbs and US Army Mountain snowshoes and the Atlas are by far the easiest to adjust and have excellent build quality. Living in Montana (and 12 years in Alaska), I place a high premium on backcountry gear that is simple to use when you are tired and so cold that your fingers are stiff. These bindings pass that test very well, something I can not say about the design commonly found on MSR and Redfeather shoes (at least in my experience).

I really like the previous version, these are a major disappointment. The earlier ones were comfortable from the first, the Pittards leather much superior to the Goatskin, and even the Conduit felt more flexible/stretchy on the old ones. In general, I think Mountain Hardwear de-contented this glove in it's latest version. I would not buy another pair and may return these.
