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

I tried these out on a long run last week and was really pleased. They didn't freeze solid -- it was 20 degrees outside --allowed me to slowly fuel through the run, and taste good. I've tried Cliff Shot Blocks before and have had a hard time stomaching them. My running buddy received some Shot Blocks at a race and tried them on our run last week. We ended up stopping at the local grocery store for him to use the facilities due to GI distress. We've both used these Scratch Labs Drops recently and have been pleasantly surprised.

I've never had GI trouble with Gatorade or Powerade, but this stuff really does feel "less filling". I don't feel over sugared when I use it. It also tastes great. The Apples and Cinnamon are great hot on a long wintery road ride in an insulated water bottle. Much easier to get more fluids down in the cold when they are warm.

I own a set of toe caps, a set of Neoprene booties, and these. I've found that it's hard to stay warm at 40 degrees in just the toe caps, and that the Neoprene booties get wet and clammy after about 15 minutes. These work really well from 20-40 degrees. They do a great job of keeping my toes warm by keeping the wind and spray off my feet. They also look great. I've paired them up with the Pearl Izumi PRO barrier tights and my legs and feet have been very comfortable.

I got these as a Christmas present to help me get out and ride more in these Utah winters. When paired with the Giordana FormaRed Carbon Lightweight Men's Jacket (they match up perfectly at the wrist to keep the wind out) these gloves have kept my hands toasty warm on rides from 40 down to 25 degrees. My biggest problem in the winter is getting too hot, sweating, then suffering the chill through the rest of the ride. These gloves have been great at keeping the wind out and staying warm even when slightly damp. I've got thin but long hands and fingers and the XL fits perfectly. They also look great.

I also own a set of Pearl Izumi Lobster gloves, which have been much too hot to wear in these conditions. The only ride when they've worked is when I went up the canyon on a 30 degree day. At the top of the canyon it was 15 degrees and I put on the lobster gloves for the descent. They worked very very well in those conditions, but are much to warm for 25-40.

This was a Christmas present to try and get me to keep training outdoors in Utah through the winter. I've been out in 25 to 40 degrees in this jacket and have really liked it. I'm 6'3" 180lbs and wear the XL. It's definitely a "European" or "Athletic" cut -- at most I can fit two layers under it but he thing I like most about it is that it is snug and keeps the wind out. It is also breathable and does not get damp and chilly -- I'm a heavy sweater and it does a great job of not collecting sweat on the inside. The arms are the perfect length and taper to fit right into my Gore Xenon SO Thermo Gloves -- also a Christmas present that also perform well above my expectations. Recently, I was out in about 30 degrees and 15 mph winds -- a very chilly December day. With a long sleeve Craft base layer and a thermal vest layer, I was wishing my arms were warmer, but everything else was perfect. The next time I went out in those conditions, I wore the Craft base layer and an Under Armor long sleeve thermal top with a mock neck under the jacket and was toasty warm. I like having the high neck on the base layer so I can zip down on a climb and then zip up on the descent.

I've washed it several times and it comes out like new. Overall, I'm a big fan.

Just returned from a three day mountain bike trip to Brian Head Utah. Four guys, four bikes on the back of a Ford F-150. The rack was perfect. No frame scratching, easy locking and unlocking, no worries transportation of our bikes. Love Kuat!
