Awkward seam placement
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

First thing I noticed when it was delivered to my doorstep were the seams. There are two seams (aside from the regular ones on the side of your legs) that run in the front and back of your legs. Why? I have no idea - I guess it's just the design. These seams are annoying and felt uncomfortable because the brand new pants were still a little stiff before washing and use. However, after it was washed and I went on a 15 mile day hike with it I stopped noticing the seams. I was too occupied with my foot placement while hiking and enjoying myself that the weird pant designs weren't so bothersome. Overall, it is a good pair of pants. Just minus one star because it does give you somewhat weird initial impressions. For the price though, I didn't think it worth it to return. DETAILS ABOUT ME - 5 ft 6in, 124 lbs, mostly muscular, I bought a 4Reg. Fits great! In the picture, I unzipped the pants because the weather that day was horrific.

I saw some reviewers bickering (Lori/LSM/Jane) and I feel they have brand loyalty to the point that they felt the need to bash on another reviewer who did not have a stellar experience with these shoes. These are people's opinions and if they didn't have a good experience, it is what it is. As for me, I had a horrible time in these shoes! However, please note part of the reason isn't entirely the shoe's fault. It also had to do with my sizing choice and the other part was due to lack of support. So please, try to be rational and leave your biases out.

It all depends on feet type and whether or not you bought a size up to compensate for toe room and stuff, ladies. For example, I did a 15 mile hike in these and a 9.5 mile hike before that in order to break them in (each time incline was average 600 feet per mile with an occasional 1000 feet per mile in some segments of the hike). I got blisters and my heels felt like the bone was about to fracture in my feet. I was hurting in these shoes. One problem was my fault, I bought these in 7.5 which are my usual size in Vans shoes, etc. I tried these in store and felt the 7.5 was adequate and had enough space including compensating space for swelling due to altitude so I bought these in 7.5. It felt like my toes had enough space with medium cushion socks but when I hiked, those two times, I got blisters and my toes were hitting the top of the shoe and my heels felt like they didn't get enough support. The lack of space for toes and blisters were caused due to my shoes being not big enough. I should have gotten an 8 or an 8.5, but the lack of support is the other problem. Lack of support is out of my hands - the shoe just didn't give me enough support. AGAIN, this is due to the type of feet I have and how heavy footed I am when I hike (I walk heel to toes). I also could literally feel everything under my feet by the end of 10 miles during that 15 mile hike.

To give you more specifics I have narrow/regular (medium) width feet, about 10.75 inches from heel to toe length with a really big index toe. That was where I got my blisters (on each foot, on the big toes, between the crevasses). The other spots that hurt are my heels right on the bottom tip of the Calcaneus bone. I'm giving this a 4/5 because it is a good shoe. It held up really well and was really waterproof. I walked through 6 streams and even slipped on a rock with my shoe in the water up to below my ankle and no water came in.

Definitely recommended if you do longer hikes and if you go up a half or full shoe size with medium cushion socks. I will try these again with a size 8 but if the lack of support still does not improve with or without insoles, then I will edit this review later and just say these aren't the shoes for me.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I am 5'6" 118 lbs and ordered a size small based on the reviews. I really wished I had ordered an XSmall in the end because size small was definitely a little baggy. I like my jackets snug (but not too snug). If you are small to medium chested like me (around 34B cup size), an XS would have been a better fit. Size small was too big. Now I have to return my original order for the XS, hoping it doesn't sell out...

I am normally an XS or S in Hurley's Women, but this jacket is really small. I had to try on the Medium in order to feel comfortable. To help others out, I am 5'6", 118 lbs with 32B cup. I'm slim and slender and that fact that I had to go up to Medium shows how small this jacket is. The sizes are weird. Anyway, it's still a cute jacket. Black looks pretty awesome, but the navy and grey is pretty sick too.

Hi, I bought the 2009 version of these and had to buy the Asian fit version of these goggles from the Oakley site just so I could get goggles best for my facial structure. Asian's don't have a nose bridge so these goggles won't normally fit us. My old goggles had a high nose bridge which would leave a gap above my nose and air would go in fogging up my goggles as a result. THESE ARE AWESOME GOGGLES but if you're asian, buy the asian fit.

I received this sweater and I got mixed feelings about it. I put it on and it felt really weird. For starters, I have sort of long arms or rather, I'm used to wearing sweaters with sleeves that reach my knuckles for warmth and this jacket's sleeves barely went past my wrist. When I lift my arms, the sleeves show my wrist and some of my forearm. Another thing, the fuzz visor that flaps over the hoodie does not stay close to the hoodie as I'd like. It whips to and fro so you look like an elephant. I plan on sewing it to the hoodie or adding velcro to keep it there. Other than these two defects, it is well made. Very durable and warm. I bought an XS and it fits me fine (besides the sleeve length) since I have an A cup chest and I am 5'6" so the sweater does reach my hips which I like :) So 4/5 for this jacket cause it's really cute! I recommend you buy it for style.
