Bogs makes a great looking boot. I struggle to find boots that fit because of wide calves. The Mid height Bogs are a great option for woman who also have wide feet/calves. The foot and toe of this boot are very bulky though and I ultimately returned. I was looking for a casual but winter durable boot that I could slip on and off for winter errands. This would certain do the job but was so bulky that I decided against it. Would be great for wandering through wetlands or any other wet place and as a great work boot.

Thank the winter weather gods for Rab. I first read about the brand on a climbing website and decided to try it out. I have had two Rab down coats and both are phenomenal, the best coats I have ever owned. First reason I like Rab - they are really made for a woman's body, curves and all. The Rab coats are not boxy but they are also not super slender, as is the trend with so many outdoor products these days. The warmth is off the charts. I am never cold in this coat and have taken it on a winter grand canyon trip and use it for daily wear in wintery Idaho. Temps have been well below zero for over a week but this coat wards the cold better than any other brand I have tried. The pockets are very generous and well placed and the hood has a wire in the brim. This is a nice feature because it keeps the hood more rigid and wearable. Packs small and regains it's loft quickly. HIGHLY recommend.

This is a pretty jacket and the long length is awesome. It is possible mine was mis-tagged but the size was very, very small. I have several of the Benton vests and fleece jackets and this was a great deal smaller than those. Very slender fit. Had to return as it felt at least two sizes too small. This is a lighter weight fleece than the Benton vests and standard fleece jacket.

These are great looking boots, very classy. But they are VERY slender. I would not recommend for anyone with a wide foot or calf. I have wider calves and could not get this boot on. The mid height BOGS however are great for wider calves but this pattern is not available as a mid height, I don't believe it is anyway. The toe and foot part on this boot is less bulky than the standard bogs, that was a nice feature.

I also have thick calves and need wide shaft boots. I just returned these because I could not even get them on my foot. They are really pretty but didn't work for me. I would not recommend them for a wide foot. I have gone through a slew of boots from BC and REI trying to find a nice slip on one that fits. Still looking. The Columbia Minx Moccasin is a strong possibility. I have also tried the Columbia Ice Maiden - too small. The shorter Bogs, called Mid, fit really well on the calf. The foot part was a little bulky for me. The mid height in this pattern would be perfect. I also tried two Baffin boots. The Baffin Cozy boot could be a good option for you. The Baffin Kamala was much too small.

This is a really great slipper. I have somewhat wide feet and have a hard time find shoes and boots that fit well. This slipper goes on and off very easily but doesn't slip off when moving around. It's sturdy enough to wear outside, I've worn it to the local market and simple errands around a snowy Idaho town. Seems to be very true to size. Keeps my feet warm but not overly toasty. I've ordered an extra pair to keep at my office. They don't overtly look like slippers and can easily pass for shoes.

I got these in white and they are very nice looking. Extremely narrow shaft though, enough so that it was rather difficult to get my foot fully into the boot. I'm looking for a winter boot that is easy to slip on and off for running about town, work, etc. Unfortunately this isn't it. But could work really well for someone with a narrow foot/ankles.

This is a very good looking shoe and exactly what I wanted for around town shoes in the winter. However, they are very, very narrow. The length was correct and to size up might have made them a bit wider but much too long in the toe. Unfortunately had to send this back. Not recommended if you have a wide foot.

This is the best puff coat I have ever owned, hands down. And I'm not convinced I could ever top it. The price is reason for pause but it's worth every penny. Purchased this to wear on a 3 week winter float trip in the Grand Canyon. Daytime temps hovered around 35 degrees but nights were much colder, and that was when I was wearing the coat. After shivering all day on the river, it was such a treat to dig this coat out. I was never cold in camp, not one single time. Though we were never in the sunshine and some of the beaches were frozen solid. It was very likely below freezing every night. The jacket is very puffy so if you are hoping to avoid that - this is not the coat for you. I think it would keep you warm well into sub zero temps. It's big enough for layering, not a particularly form fitting coat. Hood fit well too. HIGHLY recommend. Also supremely lightweight and packs very, very small.

This is a fantastic vest, very versatile. Medium weight fleece. I bought 3 colors to wear in the office in the winter. Fits good, not tight or curve hugging but still flattering. Colors are fun. Note: The colors are brighter than they appear online. The bright compass is a very bright, vibrant blue. I think it's pretty but it would be too bright for some people. Price is excellent for a very staple piece. Only drawback, it is not a long vest. I am pretty short, 5'4" and I would not want it any shorter. So it may not work work tall women.

I was so excited to get this shirt and have several of the long sleeve version. Unfortunately they didn't fit! This shirt runs very, very small. I typically wear a large in the long sleeve and neither the large or xl fit in the short sleeve. I know sometimes women's sizes are weird and am disappointed to see that there isn't an xxl available. It is a great shirt in every other way but I would strongly recommend ordering one or two sizes up!!
