Familiarity: I've used it several times

I had been wearing my road bike helmet for mtb, and finally decided to buy a proper mtb helmet, and I absolutely love it. I have a small head and it doesn't look too big at all. It fits great and I barely notice it on my head. I have a GIRO road helmet and am thinking about getting a POC after my experience with this helmet.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I asked my sister (NOLS instructor) for a recommendation for a sleeping bag, and of course she recommended the best. I don't camp a lot, but I wanted to only buy one sleeping bag vs trading in a cheaper one in a year or two.
I used this in the desert and was plenty warm - it probably got down to 30 degrees at night. I also love how small it packs up. Its super light weight too, not big and bulky,

I wore these for the first time touring the other day. I don't have a ton of experience with ski pants, but I like the way these fit. They are slim.

It was around 35 degrees and I was plenty warm. I never really got too hot, even touring up hill.
There is only one small pocket, which I didn't think I would need until I went touring. So that is a consideration.
I had to have them altered, so not sure if this would be the same for everyone, but they were a little snug around my boot.

I bought these for skate skiing and fat biking. I wanted a sunglass that could work well in low light. I use the rose tinted lenses and they work very well.
They are a little stiffer than I am used to, meaning that the ear pieces don't fit as easily with my helmet, but I typically wear cycling glasses and I'm not sure that these were intended for that. They are extremely light and you forget you have them on. I have a small face and they fit well.

I've worn these a couple of times at 15-20degrees and I'm not convinced they're any warmer than my Rapha Winter gloves.

I haven't worn them yet in anything colder than 15 degrees. That is maybe where I will notice the difference.

I'm a petite woman, and the Mens S fits OK. A little big but not nearly as big as i would have thought. I think they'd be fine for any woman over 5" ft.

The 4 fingers didn't take any time at all to get used to.

I ended up returning these, not because I didn't think they could perform, or because I didn't like the look. Unfortunately they were too big. I am typically a 5 or 5.5 and they only come in a 6. Sometimes I can wear a 6, but not in these. I liked the idea of a "running shoe" looking winter hiking boot.

I ended up returning this, mostly because of the size. I needed it to be a little larger. But, I was also surprised at the quality. I thought for a Snow Peak item (my first) that the quality would be better. It smelled like cheap plastic.
