Made it through cold-weather hikes!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm 5'3", 105(ish) lbs. and ordered the XS (my waist is 23.5"/hips 33") and they fit like a dream.

I wore these all by themselves in extremely windy, frosty/snow flurry conditions -- clocking hours worth of low-20s hikes on the AT, and couldn't have been more comfortable. I also found they are stretchy enough to fit over my merino wool leggings, too. They're not 100% windproof, but it was nothing terribly uncomfortable when the wind kicks up. They also offer minimal protection against thorn bushes/sharp branches, so be careful in the brush & wear them under something more protective!
