I still have an older much-loved version of this sweater (in magenta) because I love it so much. Even with a few style differences, this newer style is also a favorite. It fits well and is flattering to my shape at 5 10 and full chested I wear a medium with a basic long sleeve top underneath. What's more is that it's incredibly warm! Not the stifling, too warm, wool sweater, especially since you can dump some heat with the zip. I like the added front pockets but miss the sleeve pocket. I got the green and love the color. I would get one in every color if I didn't already have enough clothes as it is for now!

I've biked only a few times with this jersey. Love that it has the non-slip hem, pockets, and a zip pocket. Even better is the wool. Breathes really well. I started my ride with this and a wind breaker. Half way through I took off the wind breaker and this shirt alone was great....wicking, warm yet breathing.

I bought the one in Boulder (grey). Im 5 10, curvy at 150 pounds. The Medium fit wonderfully and very flattering in all the right places. I liked it so much I bought it in the shark wave print. I immediately returned the print one, as I often find a repeating print to be too much like wall paper, not my preference. So I think I will get it in black! I wish it came in a bright teal or turquoise. This is very comfortable, can be dressed up or down.

Even with my list of criticisms of this coat, I still like it. The stitching and cut offer a modern and flattering style. Im 5 10 with a narrow waist, so the belting works well. On another site I found this coat $20 cheaper and similar criticisms in the reviews. I figured out whats wrong with the zipper-- it loads from the right side (as opposed to the usual left), if that makes any sense...so its awkward. The lining is this bright Aztec pattern, not my favorite-- also lines the pockets. I have long arms but these are still a bit too long. Even cuffing them, I do not prefer, as it breaks the stream-lined design I like so much about this coat. However, compared to other wool coat options I have seen, this coat still beats them. By the way, the Phantom color is more like a charcoal, not a solid black.

Have you ever walked around your house with your new shoes, testing them out, only to suddenly and surprisingly find yourself wearing them outside? Thats what happened with these pair, and thats when I decided I was keeping them, haha. I didnt go for a run until a few days after getting them. Instead, I went for a 6 mile family hike with them. After mile 3 (mostly gradual uphill) I felt my right heel being pinched, no matter how tight the laces. I was disappointed. Then I wore them on a 6 mile run on a packed gravel road, they performed well without the pinching. Also worked well on the narrow rooted and rocky trails.

These are my first official pair of trail running shoes. I was a bit overwhelmed at first with so many options. Im most familiar with Brooks and have never worn Solomon. I run about 20-30 miles per week, mostly on trail. This pair is true to size, very cushy with ample arch support, and the treads feels like Im gripping the ground like an animal.

After I first bought the Port, my mother rushed out and bought one in Blue (both colors not available here). Im buying my second in Pine. An easy casual layer. Lightweight, no bulk, but still cuts the chill. Its an all-around great form-fitting cardigan sweater without being too tight. Im 5 10, tall and lean, and this piece gives enough length without being too tight in the chest. I bought a Medium and Im a 34DD.

I just got the Aegean Heather Dot. I really like the style and fit. Love the color. Im long-limbed at 5 10, 34DD. Got the L, and fits well except I could use maybe one inch on the sleeves (have not washed it yet). The logo is fine on a pair of socks but sticking it on the sleeve by the wrist downgrades the style.
