I'm on my 2rd pair of Merrell's so I've gotten to know all the quirks of this shoe. First of all, I'm wondering if the previous reviewer actually got the waterproof version as there is a non-Gortex version of the Siren. I've always bought the Gortex version and have been satisfied with its ability to keep out water. For example, I submerged my entire foot while crossing a Scottish stream and my foot/socks stayed dry. Amazing. I've also hiked on Kauai mud trails and stayed dry. So, you can trust that the shoe's Gortex lining will keep your feet dry. If you buy the waterproof version, you'll need to go up a size, especially if you want to wear inserts. Second,the shoe conforms well to a woman's foot but doesn't offer great support. I replaced the original insert with Super Feet and that gave me a lot more support for hiking. Previously, my arch would hurt if I hiked more than three miles in these shoes. Third, the shoes seem to have a one year life span. After a year, the tread wears away at the back of the shoe which isn't good if you need to grip slippery trails.
To sum up, there are three things I wish the Merrell would improve in this shoe:
- Better built-in arch support
- Chunkier tread
- Make the tongue thinner (no need to add so much material here.
What is the length of this jacket? I am medium and don't want a jacket that's too short waisted. Would prefer something that falls below the hips.
What is the length of this jacket in a size medium?
I returned this because I thought the fit was rather masculine. The shoulders are boxy and it sits narrow on the hips. The fleece material reminded me of shag carpet (seriously). It is rather bulky for layering. I'm sure it would be perfect when worn as a jacket on a chilly fall day.
I ordered the apple green tee and was surprised at how quickly it shipped. Unfortunately, this tee runs pretty small. I ordered a medium (I'm 5.7 125 lbs, small busted) and it was really tight so I exchanged it for a large.
Would this jacket handle everyday rain in Seattle?
What is the length of this jacket? I'm looking for something longer than 20"
This is a cute top that fits nicely. I am 5.7 and the size 8 fit perfectly. I love the roll up sleeves and the mandarin collar. The The chocolate is more of a khaki brown color - it's not as dark as pictured. The chocolate and rose combo is much nicer than the chocolate and teal. It'll be great to wear at the office and for casual activities.
This sweater feels substantial. I love the details like the front pocket and the buttons along the side of the neck. It's definitely higher quality than what you find in most department stores. I orginally bought a medium but it was quite big for my 5.7 frame (I have a long torso if that's any help). I returned it for a small which fits me perfectly. This sweater falls below the hip and the sleeves are quite long but don't fall past my palm.
The only downside is that the wool makes this sweater too itchy to wear without a long sleeved undershirt.
I was really looking forward to wearing this top but was disappointed when I tried it on. I'm 5.7 and long limbed. The medium barely covered my waist. I prefer tops to fall longer.., preferably just below the hip. A large would be too big so I'll be returning it. If you are short waisted, this top would probably work well for you. However, I don't suggest this top for taller gals.
So far, I've found Lole sizes to be inconsistent. I bought the Cuddle sweater in a medium and it is way too big.
Funny, a previous reviewer said this sweater runs small. I found the opposite to be true. I bought a medium and it was too big. I am 5.7 and long waisted. The length of the top seemed right (falls just below the hip), however, the sleeves are too long and it is very roomy inside. It seems more like a large than a medium. I'll be returning this for a small.
