Bra-top is not lined. The cut on the bottoms is weird; very high waist and minimal side and bum coverage. Almost like a French cut, which is not included in the description and doesn't look like the photo. This suit is not going to happen for my very skinny, 4' 11 80-pound daughter. Not age appropriate. Returned.

I like this and it fits me, perfect with low-cut shorts and jeans. My belt is labeled as a Men's small S....just wondering if Nixon re-packaged these to sell as women's belts? No worries, tho because it works for me. The lime colored green is feminine as is the width of the belt.

I was looking for a new sports bra for X-fit. My running bras (recommend CWX) are expensive and fit tight to minimize bounce. I liked this online because it was a little fashionable and it supposedly "lifted and separated". Purchased XL C/D and it was too big. The molded cups will make you look a size bigger than you normally are (which for some women going to the gym might be considered a plus for this item....). My size is a 36-38 C/D and the XL did not fit me. Not easy to get on and clip. I foresee a lot of band chafing for the wearers.

There was a reviewer that said this item should have been lined. I agree. I see this shrinking and not holding its' shape after a washing. Right out of the plastic bag it looks fine on, cute even for work. The hood is removable. Does seem a little tight in the shoulders.

Daughter loves this: Super skinny 12-year old who is wearing the XS here.
Good quality t-shirt material with a nice blend of cotton and a little stretch. The quality of the Burton shirts for women seems better than the quality of their shirts for girls. IMHO

Description does not mention that this is essentially a lace front top without any lining in the front. Unless you are committed to wearing your underwear in public or designating this as a Beach-only cover-up, don't buy. I actually loved the look of it and the fit is nice. I contemplated what it would take for me to sew a front lining on the shirt......then decided I should just return it. Too bad.

I bought a Size Large for my 10-year old daughter. These will likely fit her next year. The styling is a bit weird and they are on the short side with a large waist. I think this is because they are meant to be worn loose, with a low-riding waist (AKA like Boyz snowboarding pants, YO!) to make up for the lack of inseam length. For the price, these will be fine for the occasional California Bluebird Ski day, an afternoon training gates or out playing in the snow. There are adjustable waist tabs as well as belt loops. Minimal insulation that we love in Tahoe, but likely not a good feature if in the Northeast. Daughter loves the print.

There is no reason for a watch to be this complicated. I was so excited when my watch came. Best feature is strapless HRM, however, the technology has so improved in the last year I predict most HRM from 2015 forward will be strapless so it isn't that big of a "PRO" for the watch. Buttons are labeled weirdly in the online manual and the diagrams are complex. I never knew what any of the acronyms stood for: ACC (?) HEV (?) etc. There is no way to zero-out the calorie readings every day, the amount just keeps adding up. What the?.... To view calories, somehow you have to go into the CHRONO mode and hold a button down. The amount would flash then disappear. The HRM feature works great when at rest. On the treadmill doing intervals, the treadmill machine read my pulse at 155, my Soleus Pulse watch, however read a steady 90 bpm. There is a huge lag time in the HRM readings. Really? Isn't this what a HRM is supposed to help with? I need Real Time readings.

BOTTOMLINE: I don't want to be required to reference a manual on the Internet every time I want to see a stat on my watch. Needless Complicated. Sooooo disappointed because the features are all things I wanted. Not intuitive to use AT ALL. Returned.

I bought the Horny Toad Marley Shirt in Large (L) - in white and Sea Glass.
I don't like pastels, as I am fair skinned and get washed out.
The white unfortunately, is very shear. I thought I had found the perfect white tee, but nooooo, they chose to make the fabric spec too thin. What a shame. The fit is awesome and the material fabric is suburb. Just needs to be less shear (white).

I just got a moto bike, so I was wanting to look the part. This hoody has a cropped look that to me is great. I hate jackets around my hips. Downside is that the "Fox" print on the upper left was cracking and just seemed poorly printed. The material I thought was on the cheap side. This hoody would be great for about 75% off. Not worth the price I paid, so I returned.

Okay, so this is why women sometimes don't get the cred we deserve standing in the lineup on Palisades in Squaw. It's because some ditsy girl is going to show up wearing these pants.....the fit, color and material is all fashion and looks with nada for function. If you want to just hang out at the mountain and look good, buy these pants. They really look great on and they feel like a favorite pair of jeans. Waterproof or, I'm dubious to think even water-repellent, they certainly are not. These will get soaked with moisture and very heavy and wet (then they'll bag and you'll look like every other 16-year old boy). The skinny fit? Fine as long as you don't want to actually crouch down, tuck, pull an aggressive turn, put your skis up on edge, or er...actually SKI or SNOWBOARD in these pants.

I loved the retro look of this top and thought it would be a fun tee to wear in the summer with some cutoffs.
The tee itself is fine. Soft cotton, albiet a little on the thin side, and the retro graphic reminded me of my softball shirts from the 80's in High School. The reason why I had to return it was that the shirt has a huge, and I mean immense, neck and head opening. Not only will your bra straps show on both sides, the shirt will move around and my whole shoulder would pop out. Unless you wish to regulate this shirt strictly as a beach/swimsuit coverup, the practicality of actually wearing it in a normally daily setting is nill.

Is there any difference really, in the Patagonia Capilene 3 boys long underwear and the girls other than the color choices? The Fog grey seems to be offered for both. I want to get the green color for my daughter, which is by the Boys selection - I just do not want the traditional Boy Underwear Double-layer easy-access front folds, if you know what I mean.....
