Bought this jacket for my stepdaughter. She loves it. We live in Utah.
This Jacket is perfect for skiing and just to wear a stylish jacket around the town in the rain or snow. Love the buttons on the sleeves, back, and chest. They really add that extra style. Great outer shell and doesn't need much layering. Love that it has pit vents and 4 pockets. Highly recommend for skiing or snowboarding. Whatever women's shirt size you wear order the same size and you should be good, unless you plan to layer with a thick down vest, but layering with down is not necessary with this insulated jacket.

I love, love these leggings. I got the blue nights color and the picture shows the color great! They do run true to size, I wear a size XL, women's 14/15 in pants and the XL fit great. Sometimes leggings run small and there is not enough room for my muscley dogfunk booty, but these fit perfect. Also love the high waist so my crack doesn't hang out when I bike in them.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large

I really like the material of this for Yoga. The material is thicker, feels almost like a bathing suit and gives really good breasticle support. The only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars is... The chest area fits big to my surprise. But is great for busty ladies like me. I wear a 36 DD bra. The XL fit a little big in the chest area but I hand sewed the awesomely designed straps tighter and now it fits great! Because of the stretchy material you may want to order a sz down depending on your bra sz.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small

Great Shoes but I ordered these in an 8.5 because that is the size I wear most the time in shoes or boots, Sometimes I need a size 9. These do not stretch because the are made with the synthetic leather and my footsies were smooshed to the max. I ended up going with a size 9.5. So if you are Beginner or Intermediate climber please order either a half size up or one full size larger. I did speak with an Expert climber who is a co-worker and she did state that previous season shoes ran bigger. But the newer seasons have run small. Otherwise love these shoes!

This would be a Great coat for Vancouver, Goose down is warmer than synthetic down. For walking around in light rain or snow this coat is fine with the DWR water resistant coating. However I don't recommend walking around in downpours for long. Use an umbrella if you can. If the down gets wet it takes a long time to dry.

Hey Alejandro, Yup definitely go with the Medium size.My Fiance is 5ft 7inches and 160 lbs and he wears a Medium in Stoic Jackets. Small is just a little to fitted for his taste, especially if you plan to layer underneath the jacket.

Way happy with this jacket, so warm you barely need to layer at all. Underarm vents are placed perfectly. Keeps me warm on the lifts in Utah even when its about 15 degrees and the winds are blowing. If its 25 degrees or above I don't need any layers, but if its 0 to 25, a hoodie or wool sweater underlayer is perfect. Only 2 things I would have changed, #1. There is Zippers on the Front outside pockets. Love the look but kinda hurts when you slide your hands in and out of the pockets, unless your wearing gloves. And luckily 95% off the time I am since I'm in the snow when wearing it. #2. Wish the powder skirt was removable, that's just me tho, powder skirts are just not my thing. But easy fix, I just cut the powder skirt out with scissors. Carefully tho, don't wanna damage the inner lining. Overall Love it and way happy with it. This Jacket runs true to size.

The underside of the knee portion the MATERIAL does hinge in, but it isn't one where there is a PLASTIC type hinge. Small: 14" to 17" above - 12" to 14" below, Medium: 17" to 19" above - 14" to 16" below, Large: 19" to 21" above - 16" to 18" below. Hope all this info helps, sorry for the delay on the answer.
