When I was at work and I texted my son if he liked his new size 11 gloves, he texted back that he f****** loved them! I laughed. They are very nice, and they actually fit his large hands. He uses them for snowboarding. In Washington State, waterproof gloves are a must.

I bought the Ziener Termiz Men's size 56 (European size) pants and the fit is true. I wear 40 x 34 pants, and the waist fit and the length are both correct for my size.
The pants are insulated and warm, and most importantly they rise in the back which keeps the small of my back warm on the chairlift. The suspenders are well made, the only problem I had with them was that one of the buckles had a spur of plastic material on them when they arrived, which tore into my palm when I put them on the first time, but the suspenders did a good job of keeping the pants securely held up. The pants come with a replacement catch for the front, in case you break the one that is installed. The catch seems to be made out of lightweight aluminum, so I guess it will eventually give out after enough usage, but it looks easy enough to replace with the spare catch included (comes in a small plastic bag).
The pants seem to be well made and warm, and they look well made. They were also comfortable on the slopes and did not bind anywhere. You do have to pay attention to not get the outer material dirty. I bought the bright yellow/green color, which tends to show dirty more readily. If you wash them, the tag says that you have to impregnate them again after washing (which I guess is true of all waterproof gear). The picture showed back pockets, but these are decorative. You do have two zippered pockets on each upper leg on the outside which are large enough to store a wallet in. The seams seem well made and the pants seem to be be rugged enough to stand up to the occasional wipe out.
All-in-all these seem to be good quality and I recommend them.

The Duo Component System Gloves are warm and the fact that they can be gloves or mittens provides convenience. There is an area to place hand warmers when fingers get cold. The Gloves proved warm in -30 to -40 weather.

The gloves are very well made and will be very warm. However, in the XL size, the fingers were approximately 3/4" too long. I am having them shortened but at a cost of $60 (because of the other qualities of these gloves.

I bought these gloves to see if they'd work for downhill skiing, along with a pair of mittens. I wore these a couple of times just to drive with and they 1) constricted my fingers (too small) and 2) were not warm, possibly because of the first issue. The flap-over-fingers pseudo mitten feature was interesting, but I think it would have gotten in the way if I'd gone skiing with them, as the flap didn't fit securely and I think the wind would have simply blown it back over my fingers. I have large hands and these were "Large" gloves, but they were too tight.
