As usual with columbia, the clothes are made for ladies who like to wear sh*t around their waist or for not modern fit what-so-ever. I am 4'11'' and 108 lbs at the current time yet a size 6 is too small. WTF. I have had a few columbia items in the past and they have all run small. But 4 stars because the skort rocks. It has awesome liner shorts that are a tight yoga short style. the skort itself isn't long like what it looks like here. It is above the knee and super cute. I am bringing it back to get a size 8 so I have some more room to move around and I don't wear it up around my waist. Way to blow to my ego in the size 8 but it's a cute skort for sure. I think if you don't have big hips you could probably order your normal size, but I have muscular thighs and some booty even though I am super active. If you are curvy, size up, if you are a tight athletic build, just get your normal size. I also want to bike in this skort so a bigger size will be better as I pedal around town. Happy shopping.

I wish it fit! I am less than 5 feet tall and this dress looks ridiculous on me. As the BF put it "it looks like you're going on the Phish tour" Awesome, just what I wanted for a nice dinner dress. Anyway, it's beautiful but not made for super short people. If you are of the lean build and taller it will look fabulous. I liked the stitching and the soft merino. The blue color is more navy than in the photos and it is so pretty. I am heartbroken it doesn't fit me and has to go back. So sad!!

Icebreaker does it again! The Icebreaker GT Run Swift Skort is freaking awesome. It is super lightweight and comfortable. The skortness of it makes it even better for riding my bike or going for a run. I really like the little pocket with the zipper so I can zip up a credit card if I walk to the coffee shop or something. This skort is awesome, the design is top notch and the layout of the skort is really unique. It looks much different from other skirts or skorts and it's awesome! It's worth the price tag to have merino hugging my behind, feels super soft. No stink and you can wear it a few times before having to wash it, it's one of the best icebreaker pieces I have for multi function. It works for working out, then I can also wear it later to go out to a casual dinner, that makes it worth the $$$.

I did order a size up, I usually wear a women's 4 to 6 and I'm curvy and don't' want to look like i'm trying too hard. I got the 9 and they are not painted on me like a hooker but look really cute and nice. They are stretchy and way soft, I love them!! I really really didn't want to go the "jeggings" route but these actually look like jeans so no one will know!!

Picture it.....22 degrees...my first ever run below 32....only a little bit of sun.....it was awesome!!! I almost never run in the winter time or really when it is below freezing and do my cardio inside or hike a lot when skiing instead of running. I always thought the chicks outside running when it's cold were totally nuts! No more!!!!

Awesome tights! I was a little cold at first and was worried as I left my house but after about 1 mile I was pleasantly warm! I had put on shorts on top of these and didn't really need them. Considering I do not run much in the winter, the support of these tights was amazing. I ran 3.5 miles right out the door (well jogging really, I don't really run).

The fit was snug but comfortable, I was worried at first since they looked so small. I am 4 foot 11 and in the winter am a bit heavier, but the XS was right on. My knee which gives me trouble when I run did really well and tonight I feel terrific!

I would recommend these tights and the pink stitching is totally cute. I will say though, that having super short legs like myself since I am so short, to line up the knee support I had some bunching of the fabric on my thighs. I don't think there's much I can do, I'm just really short.

I have two pairs of these and I do find them true to size. I'm about a 4-6 and the small fits great. I ski in the coldest weather in these as well as hike in the summer, they are very versatile. The waist band is super comfortable and they wash really well. I probably wear these more than my other boxers in the winter because I like the longer length in the colder months to cover my bum! Great shorts!

This jacket is awesome. I just whipped it out on a nice powder day in the Wasatch and it performed beautifully. I had a pocket to put my chapstick and money in and two side pockets big enough to stash a snack. I was dry and I wasn't overheating in the sun either. The jacket did great when I fell in the piles of gorgeous fluff and it kept the wind out while I made my way down the side of Alta. It doesn't look boxy and it's super soft. I love this jacket I can't wait for another ski day in it!

I had to return the XS which was surprising since my other marmot vest is an XS. The Small is fine but a little boxy. It's not a super flattering vest I find, however, it is more of a performance piece. I am super warm in the vest though and the color is great! I like my other marmot vest better but for keeping me toasty on ski days, this one is the way to go.

To answer some question on here there is a mitten liner inside, not a glove liner. And the liner IS NOT removable. The leather is this new agey stuff that supposedly will hold up better to washing which is good news!

I whipped these out today in a deep powder day with wind chills between 3 and 10 degrees F. My hands considering how cold it was, did ok. I did wear an additional liner underneath these. The only cold spot I noticed the most was my thumb, however, I have terrible circulation, so I'd still say to buy these if you always have cold hands.

When I was moving, my hands warmed up really well (hiking and actually skiing). My hands stayed dry all day and the raging wind did not go through the membrane at all! The gloves' gauntlet system could be wider, I had to really tuck in my sleeves of my jacket in there. The cinch system on the gauntlet works well and the long strings so I don't lose my mittens is nice. The mittens also have a clip to stick them together.

Overall, if there was a 4.5 stars I'd give it that. It's a good mitt and worth the $$$ if you have really cold hands. Your hands will stay dry and warm especially warm if you are in motion at all.

These shorts are great. They are multipurpose, you could definitely hike in them, use them casually or ride your bike. The fabric has UPF rating of 50 for sun protection and they are super flattering. I ordered a size 6 (i'm usually between a 4-6) and they are super cute. The fabric shouldn't fade either in the wash, awesome shorts!

Finally, a bra made for the people with small backs! The 32D is awesome, the hook was difficult for me to negotiate at first, but I think I will get the hang of it. It is tight at first but appears to be breaking in and this bra is super compression, super supportive. Running, not a problem, not as much bounce with other bras. If you are a D cup, I'd spend the cash and get a good bra like this one. The only gripe I have, is that it is not super flattering and goes up the chest really high, that's why I put the 4 star rating. If it's under a t-shirt, whatever, but if you want to wear a tank top while you run that has a lower v neck, it might look kind of silly but whatever, it holds you in. Most D bras aren't super flattering anyway! Works great, recommend!

Got this shirt for my mom as a gift and she wears it every day! Super comfortable and soft and stylish. Cute enough to wear every day or even as business casual and then take a short hike after the day is done with the vapor wick technology. The cinch ties on the bottom of the shirt can sport different lengths and looks. Very versatile piece with many functions at a good price!
