Awesome shirt, but size up if you want to look descent wearing this solo. I normaly wear med or large(5'9 185 lbs). XL in this thirt fits like a large on me. If you want to use this as a base layer only, stick with your normal size. It NEVER STINKS wich is great for many days in da woods. When you sweat a lot, it will stretch up to one size larger. I guess that's the nature of the merino. Buy this shirt, you will want another!

I'm 5'9.5 & 185 lbs. Let me start off by saying I never take points off for fit, but these are ridiculous. The large were to tight in the hip (think commpression). I exchanged for XL, and they were entirely to big. If you tighten up the belt a little
,because of the design, you get extreme prune waist. I could roll up the bottom 6-7in and they would still touch the ground.
They only have ONE pocket(PERIOD) that barely fit my iphone with an otterbox.
They are very well made. I realy wanted these to work, but with only the one pocket and the fit issues I could not reccomend these pants. I returned them and I'm going for the Marmot Scree pant.

So far I love the jacket and it's very comfortable(I wear it everyday), BUT. The DWR doesn't hold up too well, I've had it for a month or more. The DWR wears down under the arms. That's not realy the jackets fault, it's just the fault of the whatever treatment OR gave it. It is already fraying SLIGHTLY around my chin. Overall it's still a great jacket and I think I would buy another. I'll update later.

Buy this thing! It boils 2 cups in about 1min and 25sec and 4 cups in 2min and 30-40sec. It is pretty huge, but hey, it's smaller than a Saturn V rocket engine lol. If you nest it with an 8 oz fuel can, don't count on putting much else in there with it. Be careful how you pack it. The folding handle will scar stuff(my platypus) in your pack, if it constantly rubs it. I ended up wraping it in my sham-wow. It is hard to light in wind. Tip: to get it primed(turn red) hold your lighter over it and then move your hand quickly because the excess gas lights first(you can't see it!!). You will see a slight vapor if it lit. Then IMMEDIATELY set the pot on the burner. Once the burner is covered by the pot it will prime on its own.

I researched these pullovers. I chose this one over the polartec ones, although I love polartec. This sds fleece has the grid pattern cut into it, so it's at least 30% more warm than conventional fleece. The seam construction is top notch. For the money this is one of the best 2nd layers available.
Con: I wish it was a 3/4 zip:(

I've worn these: backpacking, biking, town, long trips, skydiving ect.. They hold up very well. I wear them ALMOST every day(I'm wearing them now!). They do pill slightly between the legs. You can actually fit a FULL SIZE NALGENE bottle in the front hip pockets! I took them skydiving and we seat landed in a gravel pit. The gravel did scar the fabric a little, but didn't tear it. I just looks like shiny marks on the rear end! LOL
