Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I'm 5'7", curvy and I typically fall between an 8 and 10 in most pants. When I tried on the Medium in this pant, I couldn't even pull them over my hips so I purchased the Large. At first they seemed to fit ok because I could tighten the adjustable waist. However, by the middle of my first day of skiing they were sagging in the crotch and sliding down my backside. Also, the velco waist tabs left scrapes on my hips. The length was right, and they proved to be warm and waterproof, but it is no fun constantly having to hike up your pants at the end of a run, so they are going back. My search for the perfect ski pant continues...

Just a note for anyone thinking of purchasing, the size chart posted for this product is incorrect. I looked at these mittens in a local sporting goods store, and the sizing is clearly marked: S = 1-2 yrs, M = 2-3 yrs, L = 3-4 yrs. The M looked just perfect for my 2 yr old, with room to grow. Hope I can get her to wear them!

These sunglasses were a solid fit for my small face, and I like the polarized lenses. I mostly selected them for the unique purple color, but the actual color is so dark it's almost black. It makes them look boring and a little too masculine, so I'm sending them back.

I bought these pants because they looked like a non-convertible version of the Monarch pants, and I was exactly right. The fit, style and fabric are the same - true to size, flattering on curves, durable enough for a hike, yet cute enough to wear around town. Like the Monarchs, they do stretch out a bit after days of wear, but nothing a quick wash can't fix. I hope Prana keeps making these pants forever!

I've probably had at least 5 different brands/styles of convertible pants over the years, and this pair is by far my favorite. Love the real button closure and interior tie, and the fact that the legs are wide enough to pull off over my shoes. They fit pretty true to size for me, though I agree with the other reviewer that they stretch out a bit after a few days of backpacking. I also agree that these pants make my butt look awesome! Seriously, my husband says it every time I put them on. Definite keepers, though I'm bummed mine already have a few pitch stains...the price of loving trees, I guess.

I had high hopes for this shirt, as my Patagonia Merino 3 top is one of my all time favs. The Merino 1 fabric was soft and light, but also very clingy and see-through. In addition, I found the neckline to be too tight and just not comfortable. Not the shirt for me.

Fit: Runs small

I purchased this suit for my average sized 2 yr old who can still fit into her 12 month Patagonia capilene. The 2T was so small that I could barely get it on her, so I exchanged it for a 3T, which was long enough but still pretty snug. Other annoyances: the legs are very high cut so you can see her swim diaper hanging out, and there's a seem at the bottom of the opening that always leaves a red mark on her lower back. As adorable as the suit looks on her, I would not purchase it again for these reasons.

I've been buying these bottoms ever since Patagonia started making swimwear, because I love the fit and coverage. Unfortunately this is the third pair in a row in which the fabric on the backside has completely worn away and lost its elasticity after about a year of regular use, to the point that is is completely see-through and unwearable. I've been extra careful, rinsing them out after every exposure to chlorine and saltwater, but to no avail. Patagonia will offer to replace them, however the pattern is never still available so I end up with a bunch of mismatched tops.

I think this happening because the back of the bottoms is unlined, unlike the front side or any of the swim tops. Until this changes, I'm afraid I will not be purchasing any more Patagonia swimwear.

This is hands down my favorite pair of sunglasses, simply because the fit and stying is just perfect for me. Unfortunately, after a year or two, the coating started to peel around the edges of the lenses, and one of the tiny screws on the side of the frame fell out numerous times and was finally lost. Fortunately, Oakley has great customer service and replaced the lenses and screw for me, though I had to send them to the factory for repair. Now I am more careful and no longer wear them to the beach, pool or anywhere the lenses could get damaged by salt or chlorine. I still love them and wear them every day despite all this.

I splurged on these at the Patagonia store after trying numerous pairs of slippers that wouldn't stay on my baby's feet. They are the best ever - cute, comfortable and very functional. Besides keeping her feet cozy around the house, they have enough of a grippy rubber sole for moderate outdoor use - perfect for long road trips or flights where she needs to be comfy but her feet need protection. She is 2 yrs old and her feet are just now popping out of the smalls, so I will be ordering a medium pair ASAP!

I agree with the other reviewer. I've been wearing the Sunamee bottoms for years and thought I'd give the side tie version a try. They were considerably smaller and lower than the other bottoms, and not flattering. Cute idea, poor execution.

My 18 month old daughter looks absolutley adorable in this vest, and loves the fur so much that she keeps pulling it out of her drawer and asking to put it on. I only have one complaint...the vest is long on her, which is ok by itself, but the fabric is a bit stiff, so when she's sitting down the entire vest shifts upward into her face. This is mostly only a problem in her car seat, so we either remove the vest or zip it all the way down.

Really love the style and fit of this jacket - it flatters the figure, but isn't so snug that I can't wear a layer or two underneath. Perfect weight for SoCal winters. My only complaint is the buttons...they are really tough to get through the button hole, and because they are so thin and flat they literally leave grooves on my fingers. It sounds like a silly thing, but it's kind of painful! Luckily the jacket looks fine open, so I just don't mess with the buttons anymore.

My husband has a pair of these pants he found on clearance at a mountain shop several years ago and I'm so glad I found him another pair on Backcountry! They're his absolute favorite pants for lounging....comfy enough to sub for PJs but decent enough to wear out for a coffee run. His only complaint is he wishes the mediums were a bit longer, but he's 6'2", so that's a problem with any pant they doesn't offer a longer length.

I ordered this jacket in the greystone blue to go with the sweet orange TNF freedom pants. While there's nothing technically wrong with the jacket, it just didn't meet my expectations style wise. The liner jacket is not like the picture - the zipper is grey instead of orange, and the inside collar is white instead of grey, which I'm sure will look dirty after a few full days of skiing. Keep in mind this is not a performance review. I'm sure this jacket would perform fine technically, but it just didn't look that cute on me and overall was kind of blah. I think I can do better.

I bought this coat as a gift for my husband who had a closet full of outdoor jackets, but none dressy enough to use for a business trip or a nice evening out. He loves it - perfect combo of classic style and fun hidden features like the topo lining that make it stand out from some boring dept store coat. He normally wears a medium in Icebreaker clothing, but this fit really snug and ended up exchanging it for a large so he could wear it over bulkier clothing. Worth the investment for when your mountain man needs to clean up!

I agree with the other reviewers. I love the fall colors and the sizing is pretty accurate, but these pants sit too low on the waist. By the end of the day after they stretch out a bit, I constantly have to hike them up to avoid showing crack. They are also a bit longer than other pants I have from Prana.
