Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought this as a light day pack for hiking in the Southwest. After having it out a few days I can say it is perfect for that purpose! Lots of nice features but never feels like overkill. The hydration pocket easily swallows a 2L Camelback and has good equipment for keeping the mouthpiece at hand but out of the way. Main compartment is big enough for a couple extra layers and the secondary compartment has good organizational pouches for odds and ends. Fits very well and never feels awkward at all--a waist strap is unnecessary for a lightweight day pack, IMO, and would just get in the way. The little stash pocket at the top is perfect to keep your phone or camera in easy grasp. Overall this is a great looking and very functional bag for light day use.

Very happy with the overall build quality, fit and style of these gloves. Purchased XL size and they fit as expected. Touchscreen compatibility was iffy and basically non-existent when I had my phone in its waterproof case, though I understand others have had better luck. Only real complaint is that these got quite cold at the top of the mountain with the wind blowing, and once they got cold did not really warm up again until I went inside and took them off. Also lack of a removable glove liner makes moisture an issue if you get sweaty. This is my first new glove in a long time so I may find that this style just isn't well suited for me--thinking of trying a mitten next season.

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

Upgraded from some very old, mangy Oakleys and absolutely love these! They're large and very comfortable on the face, breathe well and have no fog issues whatsoever. So far only used these a few days in fair-to-moderate conditions, 15-30 degrees, partly cloudy to sunny with wind and occasional snow. Not amazing definition in bad lighting but I have yet to try a goggle that is. Fits well over a helmet and the silicone strips help the strap stay put. Looks good too!

One note--these are a bit large so if you have a low-riding helmet you may have some issues with the bridge pushing down over your nose. Also I didn't notice anyone else on the mountain sporting this brand so if you like to stand out from the crowd you may find that an added bonus!

I've had these for almost 3 years and wear them everywhere. They're by far the lightest, most comfortable sunglasses I've ever owned, and have excellent coverage and optics.

I did have an issue where the bridge broke on my first pair, but the folks at MJ were super nice and repaired them for the cost of shipping. I was under warrant at that point but apparently you can get these repaired for a minimal fee even after the warranty expires.

Since they broke I've been more careful, as you probably should be with shades that cost this much, and haven't had any problems in the 2+ years since then.
