Familiarity: I've used it several times

The fit isn't perfect for me because the top of the sleeve falls between the knee cap and quad, it could have been made a tad taller or made with a strap. This is likely a personal fit problem, otherwise the pad only rotates slightly when pedaling and there is no sliding downward. I typically pack them for the climb because they are super light and don't take up much volume. Good coverage for moderately rated trails.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Me and a few other people have had the plastic switch on the stem of the dropper break. I expect to have it covered under warrenty because it sounds like that's been the case.
The post itself has a few milimeters of play within the external housing, you dont notice it when you're riding though. I've been told that's just how they are.
This post is about an inch longer than it's competition, keep that in mind when you decide how low you want your lowest seat height to be.
I would have just bought the hydraulic version, or spent an extra 100$ on a completely different dropper without these short comings.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Pros:
-Warmth for winter MTB riding (I've also gotten into the habit of using them while snowboarding if I know I'll be kneeling and waiting for people)
-I've crashed a few times with these and they haven't torn up at all (through rock gardens and roots sections)
-They don't smell too bad, haven't needed to deodorize after riding in the deserts of Utah
-Don't notice them while pedaling comfort wise, aside from heat and bulkiness
-look great

Cons:
-Straps are about twice as long as necessary, I end up wrapping them all the way around my leg before attaching
-When packing these for uphills, they take up loads of room in my bag, I often have to strap them to the outside
-If you're looking for all day all mountain pads, I'd go for their "air" versions or styles because these are super hot and bulky, but not uncomfortable like other pads are (not scratchy or pokey).

Take away: Good to have for winter and park riding and snowboarding, I'd go for something else if riding in the summer or for extended periods of time when climbing is necessary (or you can just plan to pack them, but they're bulky)
