Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These pants are great for riding in cold weather. Super happy with them. But NOT recommended for rainy weather. I have found them to NOT be the least water repellent. The first time I tried them in the rain I was soaked through. The fit is perfect for cycling and easy to ride with. I use them mostly for fat tire biking in the snow and they are great for that - specially if you crash as much as I do! For wet weather - well, I'm still looking for something I really like.
I have found the fit on Norrona pants to be a bit random from style to style. At 6'3", 175 lbs I find the L in this style to fit great. Plenty long in the length and the adjustable waist feature gives a good fit in the waist.

I had read some great reviews of Icebreaker socks -although it was other styles. I bought two pairs of these and after a few months of random use (maybe 5-6 wearings?) they were totally worn out through the heals. I have a similar style/weight sock Smartwool I have used in similar conditions that are over over a year old and still in great shape. Very disappointed in these.

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

First time I used this pump, after a few pumps, the valve got stuck and I was pulling on a vacuum. I banged it around a bit and got it working, only to stick again. I walked my bike home, asked for an RMA and won't look at this brand again. Maybe it was a one-time fluke thing on this one pump, but in my whole life I never had a pump fail like this. In 55 years I've only replaced pumps because I either lost them, had them stolen, or run over them with my car! 'nuff said.

There have been a few times when I have left the house and had to reach up to make sure I put this helmet on. It's way comfortable in the best way - you literally forget you have it on. Combine that with easy adjustability for a perfect fit, and you have everything you need in a bike helmet. Great price for a really good helmet.
