Elizabeth's Bio

Attempting to beat the office-life doldrums by getting out as much as possible in the high desert and mountains of Wyoming.

(and missing my former life as a firefighter every. single. day.)

These are not the same tights I ordered last year (even though my order history says they are!). They're a good 4-6" shorter than my last pair, hitting me several inches above the ankle.. Why would I buy Coldgear tights, just to freeze my lower calves? I love my pair from last year and run in them in single digits temperatures. No way am I doing that in these.

While they do seem like a good cool weather tight, they're not the cold weather tight I was looking for. Will be returning these.

Had high hopes for this, but I'm going to return it. I bought a medium based on the sizing chart (8/10), but I'd have to go up to a large for it to fit. Somewhat loose-fitting around the middle, but not at all in the chest (I'm a B/C) and armpits - I would most definitely have chafing in the pits due to the arms riding up. Length is great (I'm 5'9" with a long torso).

I'd try a larger size as I like the length and style, but the fabric is bizarre. Feels really stiff, which is odd, considering it's mostly cotton. It may soften with washing, but since I'm going to return it, I have no reason to try that out.

Awesome shoes! Super comfy insoles, lightweight. They're definitely clogs (no back/heel), which is a little hard to tell from the photo. They also have laces, although as mentioned in the specs, it's pretty much for decoration only.

Definitely need to wear (thin) socks with these with the microfleece lining. I normally wear a 9.5, and these seem to be pretty true to size. I'm guessing they'll stretch with use, being leather and wool.

Great shirt! It's long enough to cover the top of my jeans, with room to spare. Comfy cotton, although it's a little thicker than expected. It's great for work, but would be pretty warm for any athletic endevours. And be warned, it's definitely got a wide boat neck - no sports bras under this shirt, unless you feel like showing your straps off.

These pants are incredibly soft, but happily I haven't noticed the waist stretching out over time. I normally wear a 10/12 and went with the 10 - they fit really well over my butt and thighs, but sit pretty high compared to many of my other pants. They're dangerously close to my belly button. The legs are wide (I can comfortably wear them with long underwear) and a long worked well for me (5'9"). I ordered the slate blue, but they look more dark purple than blue in most light. All this being said, I don't wear them often because it's hard to match the color and I have to wear long enough shirts to cover up the high waist. Pretty much just an around-the-house pair.

Very comfortable pants. The long length is perfect for longer legs (I'm 5'9") - they don't show my ankles, nor do I step on the ends. Like the previous reviewer who gave them 5 stars, they sit perfectly on my hips.

I wear these both for work and play, since the material can go either way. They seem pretty durable (no frayed ends after a few months of abuse). As mentioned in the description, I can actually fit things I need in my pockets without being uncomfortable.

These pants are alright, just not my style. They have a much slimmer fit than any of my other North Face pants. The utility pocket that they mention that isn't very visible in the photo was kind of irritating - the zipper runs down the front of the leg, which makes the fit around my hips a little strange.

Seemed to be a good pant for someone looking for a (very) lightweight, slim-fitting pant, but wasn't what I was looking for. Long length was adequate (5'9").

These pants are amazingly comfortable and are my new favorite pair! They're very loose fitting with a straight leg. The waist is pretty big, but I don't mind. I ordered a L and I usually wear a 10/12.

Like many other reviewers, I yanked the drawstrings out of the bottom of the leg as soon as I got them. There's no way I could keep them out of the mud. The cargo pockets are also very low, the top of the pocket hitting me at the knee.

Long length works well - I'm 5'9".

I agree with the other reviews in a couple respects - the fabric is super soft, the color is amazing, and it fits pretty loose (almost a little too loose...). It follows the trend of most women's shirts, though, and gets wider as you go up in size, rather than longer. Barely hits the top of my jeans (5'9").

Okay, maybe not that good - but it DID spend two weeks on a wildfires in the southwest and it doesn't smell like smoke. Pretty awesome achievement, actually. Kept me warm on those cold nights in the sleeping bag! The fact that it's 100% wool allowed me to wear it on the fireline for some cold night shifts, as well.

The purple color is great, although the sleeves could be just a little longer (I'm 5'9" and got a large). It fits, but it's stretched to its limits when I use the thumbholes.
