Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I am 5'5", 135 lbs, with a curvy build. I was surprised to find that a size small fits me perfectly, just barely clinging to the hips. A medium would have been baggy and shapeless. The dress looks fantastic with leggings, boots and scarf to accent. I really like the heavier material and the way that it falls. It creates a nice casual, classy look for work or friendly gatherings.

I just got a Osprey Verve 10 pack but the drinking hose is too long. Unlike other bladders I have used, every time I try to stuff it back in the back pack, it kinks and i cannot get water out of the hose. If I leave it too long, then it won't attach to the magnet and will get caught on branches during my Mountain Bike ride. Has anyone had this problem and do you have suggestions? I just purchased the pack and have already wasted an hour, that I would have spent biking, trying to figure this out.

I love this sweater. It fits beautifully and is perfect for every occassion and season. My problem...it began pilling in the front and on the sleeves after a month of wear. I wash it very rarely and have never put it in the drier. It has begun to look ratty after 3 months and I am super bummed out. For a $200 piece of clothing, I would expect a lot better.

I was really excited about this sweater but when i recieved it, the Small fit much baggier than I was looking for. I am 5'5" 130 lb woman who usually wears a size Small on top. The sweater was soft and attractive for casual wear, but without an option to size down, I returned it. Maybe it would fit someone slightly taller than myself.

I run between an 8 and 10 in most clothes, but find that medium Arc'teryx pants are form fitting without being uncomfortably tight. These pants feel great agains my skin and move well. I thought about skiing in them, but only on a warm day because they are so thin. But they will be great for hiking and alpine climbing. Always a great product from Arc'teryx.

I bought this pack for hut trips and day touring when I get to the hut. It works fantastically for both. It carrys enough stuff to spend 3-4 nights at a hut (I am a minimalist) but packs down and carrys well for day touring. I love the way it fits close to my back when skiing! I also love having places to fit my shovel, probe and crampons. I am a medium sized woman and the small fits great.

I was looking for a wind jacket for spring ski touring and rock climbing. I have used this as an outer layer and under a soft shell, and I love it. It is light weight, durable and packs down to nothing. The medium fits me just below the waist and has enough room to fit a slim fleece under, but it is not too baggy with only a base layer. I like the visibility of the BUD color but don't find it to be obnoxious. Another great arc'teryx product.

This pack has put an end to a year long search for a pack that will fit a female frame, yet still hold enough stuff for a long, cold day. I am an average sized woman and found that the small size fit me well. I can stuff all of my ski gear in comfortably with plenty of pockets for organizing but not too many to lose things. It sits close against my back and moves well when I ski. The zippers are waterproof and there are two convenient points of access from the top and the back/side. The waist pocket is easy to reach and the insulated sleeve will also serve as a second pocket if you don't use a camel back. It has a variety of ski carry systems and attachment points that work well. My ski partners asked to try it on because they liked it so much. Overall, great pack.
