I got this jacket originally to keep at my desk at work since it's always chilly in the office. It was WAAAYYY too warm to wear indoors. I have never had such a warm fleece! The cut is a bit roomier than an athletic cut, but not too boxy. I can wear it over my 3/4 length sleeve shirts without it bunching the sleeves up. I got the Acoustic Blue. It's bright and beautiful! I'll be taking it backpacking with me this weekend. It should be a great layer under a light rain coat or by itself when it gets cold at night in the mountains!

Awesome!

I just got back from a 2-week overseas trip with this bag.
Pros: The bottom is hard, which will protect anything you don't want super squished. The top is soft, which will allow flexibility in packing. It's separated into compartments - one big one on the bottom and 3 smaller ones in the lid (plus the two external pockets in the lid). There are 4 handles not including the telescoping handle to roll the bag. This made it really easy to pick up and walk down flights of stairs where there weren't elevators and to pick up and throw it up in a train. There are 2 straps with quick release buckles that let you tighten down the load.
Cons: If the bag isn't full, the soft top is floppy which makes it difficult to tighten down the straps enough to secure the load. If the internal compartments aren't full the stuff shifts around because there aren't any straps inside to hold stuff, only the mesh compartment lids that zip.
Overall: I would definitely recommend this bag! I have 3 Dakine bags now, and they are all top quality material and construction. The awesome colors and patterns are a huge bonus and being able to buy last year's at a nice discount is icing on the cake!

I have this shirt in Melon. The Medium is true to size. It is really nicely fitted for curves. Although the back is true white, I can wear a navy sports bra underneath without it showing through. The rose detailing on the back of the sleeve and under the arm give it a little extra something special. This is one of the coolest, most breathable shirts I own. I wear it trail running and cycling (great length to avoid showing any skin even when down low on the road bike) and even out and about. The shoulders/arms have a nice athletic cut so they aren't riding up or down. I bought this at a great price on SNC and just saw more colors on Backcountry! Love this shirt.

I bought this shirt in Eggplant for trail running. When it arrived I was a bit concerned that it would retain too much heat since it's thick. It is PERFECT! It wicks sweat like a pro and doesn't retain heat as I thought it might. The quality is an A+. I loved it so much I bought it in white and black. I use them for running, hiking, and even kayaking on the river. It dries super fast and I couldn't be happier with it. I'm a Med and it fits perfectly. The long tail ensures you won't be showing any crack if your shorts don't fit as well as this shirt, and with the higher neckline you won't be afraid to bend over too far in mixed company. The logo is reflective. I'll try to find some pics to post as well.
