Familiarity: I've used it several times

Awesome technical and functional one-piece that is super light-weight and waterproof. Looks good, too. The only problem is the ultra-loose fit: it is really, really long in the body on me at 5'4". I can get away with it when I'm wearing my small backpack but certainly not without.

I had been loving my Volkl Auras for years and last year got the Kikus. However, I'm wondering if I should have gotten a longer ski in the Kikus since they're full rocker? My Auras are 163cm and I got the 162cm Kikus. I'm 5'4", 120 lbs and an aggressive skier.

fits huge!

Even though Patagonia advertises this as having a slim silhouette, it fits HUGE. I am 5'4" and about 122 lbs and this size XS shirt is too long (goes down to my crotch) and way too big and boxy (I would have to be pregnant with Popeye arms to fill it out). To confirm the horrible fit on me, I looked at the model on the Patagonia site and she shows a slimmer fit (http://www.patagonia.com/us/product/patagonia-womens-ultralight-down-shirt?p=84740-0-371).

The women's is slimmer and seems to therefore fit me better. However, I ended up getting the men's XCR mitt because it doesn't come in women's-specific. If you do get the women's, try them on before ordering, if possible, because even though they're supposed to be just lower-volume, I found the women's mitt to be shorter in the finger length, too.

(let IT rip)... having used the full leg 260 for a few years now, I was curious to see if the legless provided enough warmth, was long enough, and comfortable. I'm pleased to say the material has improved from my older style (it's softer and smoother) with a better waistband (flatter and not as tight), and, combined with the over-the-calf high Icebreaker ski socks, were long enough and stayed in place. Additionally, I actually did notice the increase in comfort with just the sock in my boot rather than the overlapping of the sock plus the legging. I recommend these! (BTW, I'm 5'4", 121 lbs and my sizing in Icebreaker is consistently XS).

I loved this jacket for many months, until I noticed every time I left it unzipped, the velcro stuck onto my left sleeve. And on the collar, the velcro stuck onto my left shoulder. The velcro has now destroyed the fabric on my left sleeve and shoulder! If the jacket had a protective flap covering it, it would prevent this issue. It might cost a little more, but I would get more than 10 months wear from it before it's destroyed. A definite design flaw.

Other than the velcro, the length is great, the colour (turtle dove) is great (and washes clean), and the warmth and fit are great. I'm about 5'4" and 120 lbs and got an XS. It fits over both my casual and work clothes and looks sharp.

If they fix the velcro, I would highly recommend it.
