I really wanted to like these. I love knickers and I love the Hincapie brand. My favorite shorts are the Hincapie Power short - those shorts are made with cyclists quads in mind. So i was excited to get barista knicker. Man - did these look terrible on me! I ordered the xs. First of all the waist was too big - I could literally pull these on without unbuttoning the waist. And the legs (quads) were way too small - the legs fit like snug tights. I don't have very much cellulite on my thighs but these knickers showed every bump I do have! Yep - these puppies are going back!

I can't believe the msrp is $165. Even at the 60% off price it would be pushing it. On the good side - it *is* lightweight and I loved the dropped tail - plenty of coverage for the backside. I didn't actually ride with it to test the windproofness so I really can't speak to the functionality - I can only speak to the fit. The material did feel nice and soft. I ordered the xs caviar and it fit more like a large-ish small. Not close fitting (which is how I like my cycling clothes to fit) and the sleeves were 3 or 4 inches too long. The sleeves seemed really out of proportion to the rest of the jacket. Granted I do have short arms but most jackets are only 1 or 2 inches too long but this WAY long. If you have long arms and are a small the xs would probably be a good jacket for you.

I ordered the white in xs. It is a little on the small side but I like my cycling clothes to be fitted. The arms are definitely snug and I was only able to fit a thin baselayer underneath. It was definitely close fitting on the torso too. (I'm 4'10" ~105lbs) I liked the fit and features - back pockets easy to access and the windblock material on the front/sleeves. I could easily see using this for days with temps in the 30s/40s. I would have kept it but I mainly mtn bike and I figured the white would get dingy really quick with the type of trails I ride so I sent it back. Sadly the black wasn't available in xs or small(I would have considered a small).

great jacket  - I love it
5 5

I had been eye-balling this jacket for a while but couldn't justify spending $300(!) on it....are you kidding me??

I'm an avid mtn biker so have good gear is important but I already had a rain jacket. BUT I'm also a big time weight weenie too and my other jacket is bulky and heavy - so I was super stoked when I saw this for 60% on bonktown.com. I snagged it. The xs fit perfectly (i'm 4'10" ~105lbs) and I LOVE the way the sleeves cover the backs of my hands.

I love this jacket so much and was *extremely* bummed and mad at myself when I lost it. I was racing at the Breck 100 and left my camelback with the Cutter jacket stuffed in the back at the race venue!!!! The race promoter said it was not turned into "lost and found".

ughh....but by then i was sold on the jacket- so I reluctantly ordered another one(it was on sale for 50% off at the time). so i ended up paying "full price" for one jacket.

On a whim I placed a 'lost and found' ad in the local paper offering a $25 reward and lo-and-behold some guy responded that he had found my camelback. I met up w/the guy - paid him the $ - got my jacket back and sent the "new" one I ordered back. Whew!

So all that's to say it's a great jacket, functional - lightweight(packs down very nicely) and stylish.

I wish they had more colors in my size. I ordered the soil brown in size 2. The material is so soft and nicely stretchy. The back pockets have interesting detailing to them. The fit isn't super snug - typically I like my clothes a bit more fitted but it's just a tad bigger than I prefer but not too big that I would send it back.

I had also ordered the Prana A-line skirt at the same time but the North Face skirt just fit and looked better so the Prana went back and the North Face is in my closet.

I'm an xs/size 2 and ordered this skirt in a 2. It's a simple style and very cute however it fits more like a large 4 - way too baggie of a fit for me. Typically Prana xs works for me so maybe they have different sizing for the numbered sizes.

I also ordered the North Face Parker Seam cord skirt(size2) at the same time. The fit on the North Face skirt was much better so the Prana is going back.

I loved the pics of this skirt and ordered size 4. I'm a xs/size 2 but since the 4 was the smallest size available i thought I'd give it a try. The 4 was way too big - it fit more like a size 6. The material has a nice weight and texture to it but since it fit like a potato sack I couldn't really tell if it would look good until I try it a smaller size. I sent it back and hopefully a smaller size will be in stock soon

This was a super cute skirt. I ordered the plaid in xs. The material is a technical type with a nice stretch and feel to it. I like my clothes to be at least semi-fitted -not skin tight but not hanging on me either. I have another Carve Designs skirt in xs and it fits great but this seemed to be more of a size small not an xs. So back it went.

I was on the hunt for skirts when I ordered this. I love the pic on the truffle color but they only had black in XS. I know that Ex Offcio runs big in general but backcountry had this for a good price so I thought I'd try it.

The xs was a little big - the fit was marginal for me but I thought it would work. However the material is thin and the skirt didn't drape well. It seems to cling to my underwear in an unflattering way. If the material draped a little better I would have considered keeping it but as it was I had also ordered the Carve Designs highpoint skirt and that skirt fit and draped so much better that I kept it and sent the Ex Offico skirt back
