I ended up getting this jacket to wear over my Patagonia Down Sweater as a wind/snow/rain proof layer during the winter, and I'm very happy with it. I also like the fact that I can use it year-round as a lightweight protective layer. Definitely waterproof! I especially like the softly lined chin-guard. It's nice to have a two-way zipper for driving and other activities that require more range of motion. I'm 5'4" & 145 lbs. and the medium was perfect. As others have noticed, because the zipper is waterproofed, it does tend to stick - but I simply rubbed a little WD-40 over it and now it works like a charm. Overall, a great investment piece.

Love these capris. The drawstring side hems allow you to adjust the length depending upon the weather and activity. I use them mostly for trail hiking and have been very pleased with their durability - tough enough to survive swipes by thorns and branches, while still being lightweight and VERY breathable.

I decided upon the 12s to allow for more flexibility and movement, but since linen blends tend to conform to your shape during wear, I could have probably gone with the 10s for more casual use. I agree with a previous poster that a wash & dry brings them back to their original shape. My only complaint is that I do have to wear a belt with them.

I have these in (Shitake) brown and love their versatility. Rugged without being too clunky. They are a bit narrower than most women's Keen styles, and were stiff to start out, but I took a week or so to break them in before taking them to task & would recommend this to anyone planning a long hike or trek. Once broken in, they have formed to my feet and I can wear them for a whole day without a problem. Excellent stability for slippery or uneven terrain. Pair them with SmartWool socks for breathability. As for some complaints about them being too warm, I would say this: these seem to be marketed as hiking shoes for cold and damp weather conditions, not really meant for summer or casual day-to-day wear.
