Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this fleece for hiking in the no-so-cold but sometimes windy winter weather in central TX. It definitely blocks the wind and my normal XS size was roomy enough for wearing a long sleeve shirt and a zip-up wool sweater without feeling constricted. The neck is a bit high and stiff, but I am short (5'2", 104 lbs). It did get softer after a couple wears, so I am happy about that. The fabric is stiffer that a regular fleece, but I actually like the added structure since I have other floppy fleeces for running, etc. I also found the sleeves a bit long, but again, I am short, so I am used to that, and they fold over or under nicely.

I really like how lightweight yet warm this is, but since it is very fitted and I am very short-waisted, the bottom hits me a bit too low on my hips and feels a bit tight, but after wearing around the house it feels better. Unfortunately it still bunches up when I move around. If I was longer-waisted, the bottom would hit at the top of my hips and feel fine. The chest and shoulder areas were a perfect fit and allow for full mobility.

The texture is unique, but the color was not exactly like the photo - there are no turquoise accents on the outside of the zippers, only inside. It is also not wind resistant at all, but since it is thin, almost like a merino wool sweater, I could easily layer it under my Windwall or a wind resistant running jacket.

I am on the fence with this one since for the cost I expect a better fit without having to keep pulling it down. 4 stars thought since the product does what it is supposed too, and would probably be great for someone of average height or longer torso. For reference, I am 5'2", 104lbs, short-waisted, and ordered an XS.

I've been looking for some Bikram Yoga shorts that aren't too long or too short, and these are just right! I don't feel like my rear is hanging out or like I have bike shorts on, yet is covers a bit of the trouble spot on my thighs. They down ride up and stay comfortable through the 90 min. class. I do think they are a little short for regular gym work outs, but definitely comfortable enough. I also like the charcoal heather color. It is a nice change from black and goes with everything. For reference I am 5'2", 104lb with a bit of a booty, and XS was perfect.

I ordered this item from Backcountry and after 3days, something is rattling inside of it. Has anyone provided similar feedback for this item? We used it with hot coffee and a few ice cubes to cool it down, so I don't know if that caused the problem since that's how I use my other coffee travel mugs. I'll be returning/exchanging it this weekend. Thanks!

I am absolutely thrilled with this bladder and insulating sleeve. I just finished a 3 hour hike in 95-100 degree weather and the water stayed nice and cool the whole time. I agree that the hose insulation is too wide and removed it, but it will be handy when used on a ski trip to prevent freezing. I also like the zip top since it is easy to fill, clean and dry. Definitely recommended.
