It's very cozy and warm but, I don't recommend running in this one unless you're a small cup size. Don't drive over potholes in it either!
I bought this for sleeping in my insanely hot apartment. It's wonderful. It's comfortable enough for sleeping and stays very cool throughout the night. My only qualm is with the cup size. I'm a 38 C and the XL fits my back and shoulders very well but, I get a little double boob. Be warned.
Cozy and warm but, not nearly as fitted and flattering as the pictures will lead you to believe.
Can anyone tell me how high the waist hits? I have a large posterior and some of the wool bottoms that I have purchased have a tendancy to ride down in back. It makes for very odd looking panty lines!
In a quest to replace my rapidly wearing 5.10 Projects, I stumbled upon these. They're not quite as thin and certainly not as sensative as my coveted Projects but, they're as close as I'm going to get...They're very good and, I must say that there are times when I appreciate this more agressive approach.
The sizing is odd...I had to go a full size up from my last 5.10 pair.
It's beautiful and very well constructed but, I'm not about to shell out $150 so that I can walk around looking pregnant...
The fabric is fabulous. Cozy and soft. So much so, in fact, that I tend to sleep in it. It's not quite as warm as I was expecting and, certainly does nothing to sway a breeze. My biggest objection is with the cut. The pictures make it look very flatering when, in fact, the shoulders are tight, the waist is baggy and the lenght is barely long enough (5'8" big chest and wearing an extra large.) I wish I knew where they get the ideas for these measurements as it is an issue with all of the tops that I attempt to purchase.
I wanted to return it at first but, it's just so damn comfortable that I ended up buying a second one.
I'm almost always an XL. If this sweater was just two inches longer I would own three more but, I find myself fidgeting with it a lot. I'm 5'8'' and am blaming my large chest for the length problem seeing as how those taller than myself don't have the same issue (see reviews below). So, Prana, maybe you could consider the more buxom of your fan base for next season? Seriously, just two more inches of material in either direction and you'll make an easy $300.
I'm fairly certain that the entire torso and collar are lined but, I'm not sure about the sleeves. I was a little taken aback by the description as well. It's an incredibly soft and cozy material.
Why not both? I just about had a heart attack when I handed over my credit card...who spends $200 on boots?! Smart people, that's who. Dry, warm, cozy, built to last and worth every penny. However, one issue, they're a bit slick on tile. I tried to do the splits (not in a good way) in a Wal-mart entryway last winter. It may have been the boots, it may have been the floor, it may have been me or, maybe, something was trying to tell me to spend less time at Wal-mart?
I do climb towers. When you're 300 feet in the air, with little cover, in the middle of January and in the Appalachians...you'll be really glad you put this on earlier that morning. You might even think that you're some kind of genius.Then you'll be pissed that it's not a body suit!
This poor tent sat through a 24 hour down pour in West Virgina and, aside from some minimal condensation, stayed completely dry.
The only issue I have is with the size. I'm 5'8" and don't have much head/foot room in this tent. I also had a hard time wrestling my 65L into the "stash" corner. If you're not Andre the Giant and you pack lite...it's a fantastic tent.
Firstly, let me say that I'm not knocking the Minimus line. I've had the 10 Trail shoes for awhile and they are by far the best running shoes I've ever owned. I bought these as backups off SAC and tried them for the first time last night. The fit is odd. The arch support (not that there's much) is more noticable and hits my foot in a strange place. There is also a noticable ridge on the outside line of the shoe, right where the Vibram logo is placed. I took them off and switched to my 10s after a tenth of a mile. I think they may just be narrower than the 10 Trail shoes. In short, if you're hooked on the 10 Trails, these might not work for you.
I've had these for three months and I run 10+ miles a week. No shin splints and my tendonitis hasn't come back! I'm hooked. They also work well for hiking and climbing approaches. I didn't have any sizing problems but, I generally buy according to my Euro size. I'm not sure if that makes a difference...they do run wide.
It took all of 5 seconds to find a huge flaw. The grommets (one in particular) that hold the nylon sheath together rub against the blade. Mine came dented. This doesn't mean that it won't be functional but, for this kind of money I'd hoped that the designers would pay a little closer attention!
As a small waisted bottom heavy female I have a hard time finding pants that will fit well. Only after the find can I worry about functionality. These pants are amazing on both counts.
