Just got these and they are simply amazing! So comfortable, and really lightweight. The battery packs keep these so toasty. I will never have to go in after two runs because of cold feet! I most definitely recommend these to anyone!!
I'm from Montana and I just recently went boarding in -41 degree weather. I had my Patagonia capilenes on underneath and stayed plenty warm. Also they do have a great stretch to them so there is room for layering. Another bonus, I got the Volcom Cremini jacket and they zip into the pants. So, definitely no snow down the butt! I would recommend these!
I got these and while they are very comfortable and the Speed Zone lacing totally kicks ass, I cannot wear these. I get major heel lift. I've tried everything. They are not too big or too small. I've spent endless hours meticulously adjusting the laces. Nothing helps. Nothing worse than starting your run and your heel keeps popping out. I will be getting something different.
Pants are warm and have a nice bit of stretch. I wear a size 10 pant and thought I would need the XL but they were definitely big. So, I will be exchanging for the L. Also I'm 5'4" and the length will be perfect with my boots on.
Just because it is thin doesn't mean it's not warm. The waterproof and breathability ratings are what matters. A good jacket shouldn't have to be thick or heavy. Lighter is better. Plus this jacket has plenty of room for layering.
