        Overall

        The biggest thing going for them righht now is customer service, every e-mail i sent i got a reply usualy in less than a day, and after i wrecked my outerwear(in the fall talked about in duribility) i asked if i could send it to them and have them fix the problems that i caused, and ones that just showed up, and have me pay for the ending cost. what ended up happening is he brought it to a professional and had it all proffesionally repaired, and he covered the costs. the customer survice is top notch. the outerwear is decent, but has it's faults(|not suprising it;s there first year) i would reccomendd it if you already have shell outerwear and want something insulated. if you plan on getting new outerwear every year, this is for you, if you want it to last years, it wont,

        Performance

        It kept me warm in heavy snowfall, wind, rain, and didn't have an issue with waterproofing as some people did. because it is insulated i had the pit zips open pretty much full time because of how hot it got.

        Design

        design i good, the middle poket is good for a cellphone of sandwich, and you never have a shortage of pockets. the snowpants pokets are a little different, weird at first but you get used to it.

        Value

        I feel it was fairly priced, you're not paying a lot, so don't expect a lot. in the end you get what you pay for.

        Fit

        the xl jacket fits me a little lower than mid thigh, and im 6'1. the xl pants are crazy baggy and i strongly advise that you dont get them if you are under 6'0, unless you want to look like a circus clown,

        Durability

        durability is my biggesst gripe. in the first week, the waist elastic tightener thing snapped off the jacket, the pocket matirial liked to disintegrate and my phone actually fell out, and the seams and fabric are realy easy to rip.
        in the first month the crotch seams of my snowpants ripped exposing a lot of insulation, which i fixed with ductape for the time being. i also destroyed myself on a jump, fell on my ski and the edge sliced clean  through my outerwear and baselayers causing me to need stitches (pics in my profile)
