$65 for a pair of shorts?! I was skeptical but I love Prana so I was prepared to spend the cash on these. Unfortunately, the cut of these ended right at the thickest part of my thighs and the pockets ended at weird spots on my butt - the end result: not very flattering, especially for the price. Too bad, I love corduroy, but these shorts just did not look good. I got the 6 in rust color and they fit pretty well (130 lbs, 5' 6"). Maybe they are right for someone with a thinner leg?
I haven't used these for hot yoga too, but plan too! They are great for regular yoga, running, just walking around. They are super short, and they do ride up slightly during stretching, but not to an obscene extent. Nice way to show off your legs. I got a Medium, I'm 5'6", 130 lbs with a fairly large butt, and they fit snugly but just right.
I thought this shirt was so cute when I saw it online, but I ended up returning it (the melon color). The fit was just...unflattering. I usually wear a small, and I got it in small, and although I am fit, I felt like the drape of the top gave me a built-in muffin top. It wasn't terrible, but it just wasn't cute enough for $55 bucks! Try it out, but beware if you don't want to spend the return shipping fees.
Others have said it, I will say it again: this is the best sunhat I have ever come across! It is light, packable, easily washable, great coverage of your face and neck, mesh on the sides so that your head can breathe, adjustable strap in the back, and even has built in UV protection. It is so perfect for hiking and backpacking, dries quickly, comfortable, perfect! There is literally no other hat like it. In terms of durability, I have owned my hat for over 5 years now and it looks brand-new. I've bought one for my boyfriend, friends, and family: they make great gifts as well. You will probably lose it before it wears out (has happened to me). The only bad thing to think of: they are not that stylish. I think my head looks like a giant mushroom when I wear it lol. :)
Just an update: since the last review, I actually returned the medium Neptune Sky color (which I don't even think they are offering anymore) in exchange for a small Black Hyllus. The Black is different than the Carbon Copy - I think it is darker, and has a lighter blue lining and very light blue zips . In the online pictures it shows up as white but it is actually a light blue. I exchanged it because I wanted a color that would go with more things (a little more formal), and I wanted a little more formfitting of a jacket. I am 5'6" 130 lbs, A cup, and the small is perfect - I can actually still fit a small atom hoody under it + a baselayer (then you are really toasty!). I really love this jacket so far! It is a great weight - still pretty portable, but definitely very warm. So far I've worn it down to 30 degrees and it is actually a little too warm if you have a baselayer on and are being pretty active. That being said, you will be chilly if you wear it with only a tshirt and are just standing there in 20-30 degree weather. Very comfy though. A little stiffer than the atom, but that's to be expected because it has wind protection. The sleeves are the perfect length and subtly taper to not let drafts in. Love it!
Super comfy, super worth it. The Atom LT is a lot more expensive than your standard hoodie but it is worth it! So far seems to be very well made and is very cute and very warm. So far I have tested it down to 50 degrees with only a cami and I've been comfortable. With wind, however, you might need another layer, because the side material isn't that protective. The flexible wrist cuffs are awesome and fit perfectly and comfortably although it is hard to wash dishes without getting em wet. Hood is also quite nice and roomy.
Style: I got the Bondi Blue which is a great strong bright blue color with darker blue on the sides and dark grey lining. I am 6'6" 130 lbs, A cup and the small fits great. I wanted it pretty formfitting to layer over it, and I can fit a small Hyllus hoodie over it no problem. Pros: Very very light, great warmth/weight ratio, very very comfortable and nice looking, packs really well in many situations (backpacking, airplane, etc.). So comfortable I wear it all the time just hanging out! Cons: Pricey, and fabric is noisy (when hood is up the fabric rubbing against your hair makes a fairly loud synthetic rubbing noise).
I bought this in the middle of summer because it was on sale (still $260 though - yikes!). I rarely if ever buy such expensive gear, especially a hoody, but I researched this one very carefully before making my decision. I got a medium in Neptune Sky and love the color, style, etc. It seems like it will go well with everything, but with the orange inside and raspberry zippers, has a kind of urban street cool. It fits me really well (5'6", 130 lbs) with room for a very light underlayer (maybe I will spring for the Atom hoody in the future?). The fit seems great, it is really cute on - we'll see how it holds up when it gets colder and I am actually using it! I'll update my review after a cold Boston winter and let you guys know. I hoping for this to be my layer for cold but not freezing days, which we get a lot of in Boston. I have a big Marmot down coat for the REAL dead of winter; it isn't as stylish and makes me look like a big blue marshmallow, but always does the job.
