I'm so dissapointed with the sizing on this. I ordered a large having bought an xl in a previous style backcountry tshirt that was a little big. The only way I could conceivably get into this tshirt would be by dislocating my shoulder! Such a shame as the fabric is a high quality, the print is awesome and it's a nice long length. As I live in Australia there is no point returning it as the postage is way too much to bother. Please sort your sizing out Backcountry.

I got this pack to force myself into packing light on short trips and use it for everything from hiking trips to relaxing weekends away. The windtunnel back keeps me comfortable hiking in the hot Australian summer and the rain cover keeps everything dry when I get caught in heavy rains. Using the compression straps I can use the pack as carry-on luggage when flying and the multiple access points mean that I can easily access anything without having to empty out half my gear.

I bought this top on a trip to New Zealand and it's been with me on every trip I've been on since. The v neck is just right, not too high that you feel stifled, not too low that you feel exposed. The wool, as they say, is non itchy and feels soft against your skin. Perfect for repeat wearing the merino wool really doesn't hold any odour at all.
I foound it perfect hiking in the very unpredictable Australian weather, torrential rain in the morning blazing sun in the afternoon and the quick dry moisture wicking properties kept me comfortable all day.

I ordered the Black/Black believing it would be a truer black than the Black but when it arrived it looked very washed out, almost like it had been bought second hand after someone else had worn and washed it for a few months. Needless to say I was pretty disappointed. Also the dress seemed to be huge, I ordered a large and could have gotten away with a medium. I am never a medium.....ever. I thought the pocket would be a good redeeming feature but it's way too small to fit anything I might want to carry without it sticking out and looking like I have a strange growth on my hip!! That said I have decided to keep the dress, I might give it to someone I don't like for Christmas.
