I am right on the cusp as far as boot size goes... I wear a 26.5 or a 27 boot, depending on brand (26.5 in Scarpa and 27.0 in Garmont), and I am not sure which boot I will end up using with this binding. I feel like I should probably size up to the Standard rod but I am not sure. Any thoughts?
I love these shorts. I do a lot of hiking, but also a lot of sea kayaking. These shorts do both well. The fabric is stretchy and durable, and the cut is slim but not constricting. Basically, perfect for doing just about anything in the warm weather. I have to remind myself not to wear these around the house. I even took these shorts surfing last weekend and they performed fine.
These shoes ran a little narrow on me, particularly in the toebox. I had to return them because of that. I have a medium foot but a wide toe area and they just did not seem like they would work. They had a really good rocking feel to the sole that felt like it would be very efficient and comfortable if they fit.
My wife has deemed this "the top" as it has the features she is looking for that seem kind of hard to find...
1)No shelf bra, just a good tight snug fit.
2)The double layer fabric in the bust area to cover the nipples.
3)Just a really beautiful cut.
The fabric is nice, but they squash your goods too much. There is not really any sort of pocket cut or anything like that.
This jacket looks like it would do the trick. But I don't think that I will be able to find out because the sleeves are way too long. Mountain Hardwear tops and jackets, I own about 4 or 5, all large and all fit perfectly. This one the chest and shoulders fit great but there is about 5 extra inches of sleeve there. This might be for cyclists or runners who don't want to wear gloves, but if you don't want to wear your thumbs through the jacket, there is about 3 inches of fabric bunching up around your wrist.
This is a great jacket. Still relatively light, but loaded with features. I like all the pockets. I also have not been in the mountains yet with this jacket but its a good cut and a good fit.
Cloudveil really knows their soft shell. By not trying to make gloves waterproof, they focus on the important parts of the glove- insulation, comfort, light-weight, and excellent tactility and craftmanship. A truly excellent glove.
