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.

I wear the higher neck front with a cardigan for work and love the all-day comfort. I turn it around for the v-neck if I'm going out for other social activities. I'm 5'4", 150 lbs & curvy. Surprisingly (for me) the large was cut WAY too wide but the medium fits just perfectly. It barely hits my knee, so if you are taller, take note. Also love the hidden little side pocket. The plum color is a deep purple/maroon - great color for summer and fall.

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.

The Keen San Sebastian is a convertable mesh shoe/sandal. The elastic back heel strap can swing over the top of the shoe to allow it to be worn as an open-back, slide-style sandal. Fairly breathable, too. Or you can wear it with the heel strap in place for more security. Lots of flexibility and comfort!

[The San Sebastian tends to run true to size, so no need to order a half size up from your regular size like you might need to with the Newport or Venice.]

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.
