Our daughter stays warm and looks great in her Patagonia Down Sweater. Paired with the down pants, mittens, and a hat she's all set to explore her first snow. Size does run a bit big.
Our child Natalie has a massive head. I'm not kidding, I mean massive. She's in the 90th percentile for a 12 month old. So I was disappointed that the hat was way too large. I guess I should have guessed but some sizing information for something comes in only one size probably would have helped avoid a return on this one.
I own a lot of Patagonia and typically a medium top fits me quite well. That's why it came as quite a surprise when the top didn't fit very well at all and was too long in the arms. The overall fit is sloppy, although if it fit well I think I might like the jacket very much.
I love my parka! Its a nice waterproof jacket without being crunchy and stiff. The size seems to be set up to fit a layer underneath which is what I was looking for. If you are looking for an exact fit, no layering, you may find the size to run big.
Patagonia is my outdoor brand. I have so many piece of Patagonia, I've lost count. My life moto is "he who dies with the most Patagonia wins." As such, with great disappointment, I must say that I cannot recommend this product.
I found the gloves true to size and warm. However I have a number of gripes:
1. They aren't cut to fit a hand. Most good gloves aren't two flat pieces of fabric sewn together in the shape of a cartoon hand. The finger curve and the back of the body has volume. These are cartoon hand gloves.
2. Because of the poor cut, I have no dexterity in these gloves. I have better ski gloves for manipulating things.
3. These gloves don't breathe. I get sweaty hands, which means they eventually get cold.
Fortunately Sierra Designs has the information posted on their site: http://www.sierradesigns.com/mens.size.html
I've had one for a number of years and I think the conditions you describe would be an excellent use for this article as long as it isn't wet.
I bought one as a backup. It is a piece of crap, just like the reviews say.
I'd go for the plastic boots as well.
I've had this for a few weeks now. I immediately discarded the insert because I don't like such a thick wallet. Once I did, I find that I can store all of my essentials, organized well, without busting my hip when sitting down. Solid design and good quality. I expect this one to stand up for quite a few years.
The drop down to the right of the product image lists all of the available sizes and colors. There are no large grey left in stock.
What can't this bike do?
Do the rear stays have clearance for a tire larger than 2.1? I'd prefer to run a 2.35 inch tire in the rear.
You'll want a Large on the Titus. Medium runs closer to a 17 inch.
I have a 9.5 size foot with normal width. I find that I have a lot of room up front and ample width. Any more room and I think I'd be swimming in them.
I've found the Merrells to be especially wide, although I have normal width feet.
I just got a pair and love the fit an visibility on my medium-sized noggin'. However my pair shipped with a stripped frame screw and a little wiggle in one of the arms. Fortunately I can exchange them, no questions asked which I'm doing now.
I just tried out my wife's pair with two different pairs of AT boots and a pair of alpine ski boots. No good. I think a low-profile snowboard boot would work, but the front with buckles on the hard shell boots significantly impaired the movement of the boots.
I've been using these boots for the past few weeks in serious snow conditions for 3-4 hour durations. My feet are dry and warm and I love the boots. There was little to no break in period for these puppies; they've just worked great out of the box. I've been super happy with the purchase decision. I've yet to take these backpacking because I'm not much of a winter backpacker, but I totally recommend them as day hikers and haven't had any issues with ankle stability yet.
Do these fit similarly to other Garmont boots of the same size? I can't find these at a local retailer in my size.
