I love this sweater but I'd rather get the hoody in the divine which is no longer available. The black is completely black. I thought there was a purple trim.

Size runs only a tad bit small. Simply size up. It's very long, slightly passing my hip bone. The fleece is surprisingly a little stretchy and soft. I was expecting it to be stiffer.

Great material, color and style but what's with the fit? Since HT tops fit a bit small in my experience, I went up a size just to make sure I got a loose, comfy fit. I have a tiny posterior but even the size 6 felt tight, squeezed me there while the waist was too loose. Maybe I got a defective pant. I can't imagine it fitting anyone properly.

Stars are for the great durable material, though perhaps a tad too thick. Too much material. Too much in general. It has a good key pocket. A lot of my exercise pants don't even have a key pocket. It has an unflattering boat-neck and surprisingly puffy sleeves. This does not flatter my slightly broad shoulders and larger chest.

The top doesn't look as simple and cute as the photo. Plus, the gray was almost shiny. This could have been great therefore it's a disappointment.

This sweater is extremely well made. As soon as I put it on, I feel warmth. The front design around the neck is very stylish. The zipper lays flat. The tag states 75% virgin wool and 25% polyester. It is rather scratchy and will undoubtedly drive some people crazy but at least the collar is lined in silky soft fleece. I'll wear this outside but it's not cozy as say, Columbia's Fast Trek which I'll always reach for first.

I only wish the rest of the sweater was lined in the same fleece. Then it would easily serve as a cold weather jacket and feel great on the rest of your skin. If it was fully lined and had two small pockets in the front bottom, I'd pay retail.

I read other reviews that mentioned size issues. I bought a medium which fits OK for my 32D and broad shoulders. I hope it doesn't shrink.

The excellent customer service at Backcountry helped me find this boot and the right size. I have narrow feet and narrower ankles. The Scarpa is the best fitting for me. Keene was almost as light but way too wide. Danner was also way too wide and Merrel is great too but didn't have the aggressive tread I was looking for. I haven't tested this on climbs so I can't speak about heel slippage in that regard but it's incredibly cushioned so I don't anticipate any problems there. Also, they shield my feet from the cold and rain without being too hot. Best of all they are light as feathers. Worth the money and worth buying from Backcountry.com. Spend your money here. Pick up some snow pants and Outdoor Research gaitors and you will feel invincible to snow.

Not itchy at all even though it's at the most sensitive area. Perfect fit; not tight and not loose. Soft yet sturdy. Also the curved style is extremely flattering. I can't believe I spent thirty bucks and I'm going to spend another thirty on another pair. It's that good.
Update: I'm not sure why but a hole developed right in the middle in the front, where nothing rubs against it. Hopefully it's just one pair with this problem.

Perfect for summer. They don't hold moisture, they dry fast, are breathable, durable, adjustable, have plenty of sizes to choose from, and flattering especially to your booty. They've kept my legs protected from mosquitoes, ticks, and thorns. I've taken a few tumbles in these pants and snagged them but they've really held up well: The ripstop nylon is serious business. Once you get the right size, I bet they'll be your favorite pants too.
