Colorado High Mountains
I bought these for my little sister for Christmas last year. Big mistake, I should've kept them for myself. They are toasty, comfy, pretty much perfect in everyway. I end up borrowing them from her everytime that I am at home, and one of these times she's not getting them back. My only comment is that they are one the verge of being heavy-weight compared to my other mid-weight socks.
Nice, basic t-shirt. Love the length, colour and design. Just remember BC brand runs small, order a size up.
It Works. Just remember that Carhartt tops tend to run big. Order a size down.
These shorts are great. I wear them on all my warm weather hiking trips and just hanging out around town. The inseam was a little longer than I expected, landing a couple inches above my knee. My only peeve is the snap closure, but the drawstring keeps everything together. I think the size issue is compared to other The North Face clothing these run a little bit smaller (Which in my opinion is more true to size than the rest of the brand, which I find runs a little big). All in all, a good staple for summer outdoor activities (Including patio sitting).
I find North Face outerwear to run a little large. A medium would leave plenty of space to fit a fleece underneath and to make sure that it is long enough. But a small would probably be big enough but maybe not long enough?
The lining material is brushed polyester fleece
I love this jacket! I bought the green over a year ago. Warning it is bri-ight! My friends joke that they would never lose me on the trail. I use it backpacking/hiking and even around town. It is super effective as a windbreaker and after I sprayed mine down it is moderately water resistant (But definitely not waterproof, will not stand up to all day downpour). Incredibly lightweight and packs down to nearly nothing, ideal for fair-weather backpacking. The sleeves are longer than your average jacket, which I enjoy, with my gorilla arms. Note that the sizes fit according to the sizing chart, but might be a tad different than other brands. Would give it 5 stars if it was slightly more water resistant.
I bought these pants this spring for the upcoming field season. I ended up wearing them around town as casual wear for months before putting them to the real test. As far durability goes, I have no doubt these are going to last me for multiple seasons. The triple-stitched seams means no crotch-ripping after 1 summer, and the design means that I won't mind wearing them on town days either. They are cut more flattering than other Carhartt pants (Including the other female-friendly styles) but I don't really notice the spandex. With this new cut there is decidedly less room for a pair of long underwear in my regular size. All in all my new favourite work pant.
The rise is right to the bellybutton.
The backpack doesn't include a bladder, it is hydration-compatible, meaning it has an internal pocket to hold the bladder.
Because it is reversible there would not be a shelf bra.
These pants look perfect for dealing with snow. If you are planning on backpacking through some snowfields they would kill it otherwise I would step down a notch.
I would go for x-small. The tights will be most effective when they are not too big (Just as long as they don't restrict your movement). I'm 5'9" 155 pounds and have a pair in large.
I have the non-zip version of this shirt. I have washed it in pretty much every water temp and thrown it in the dryer, I haven't noticed any shrinkage, thankfully.
I think that you might be out of luck.
I find North Face jackets fit larger. I am 5'8" and 155 pounds, I wear a medium in their jackets, you would probably find a medium to be bulky in the midsection. I would suggest you get a small in The North Face outerwear, unless you are planning for some serious layers to fit underneath.
Yes and no. It claims that is uses Gore-Tex but from looking at the shoe, it looks like only the sole and lower part of the boot would be waterproof. Definitely not waterproof with the mesh panels along the side.
So I am a huuuuge fan of merino, which might make me a bit partial but I really like this shirt. I actually have 2, one large and one medium. I usually find backcountry.com brand to run a little small but because this shirt is super lightweight it is super stretchy, the large is perfect for me to layer something under it (So it is not exposing my bra for the world to see) and the medium is perfect for a base layer. I am 5'9" 155lbs. Love the bright colours, I have the aqua and tomato, and get lots of compliments on them.
The only problem is that it is fairly see-through so beware (Just watch the bra colour), really not a big enough issue for me to not love it.
Watch for it on steepandcheap!
This top was one of my staples on a 5-day tour through Torres del Paine National Park in southern Chile.
