I ordered this hat after reading all the great reviews. I wanted a windproof hat because I hate cold ears. I bought one for myself and one for my adult son. After washing it and drying it in a low heat dryer, it was so small (and it was size large to begin with) that it was too small for either of us to wear. I didn't see any care instructions indicating that it could not be machine dried. I am keeping the second hat as I want to like it, but certainly will only hand wash and drip dry it. Hope that one doesn't shrink also. Luckily, Backcountry has a great return policy which is why I shop here. It's probably a great hat, but DO NOT put it in the dryer, even on a low setting. I am taking off 2 stars for poor fabric care instructions (actually none).

These tights were too short for me-unfortunately not an uncommon problem for me. I am nearly 5'9" and weigh 120 lbs. and I tried the women's small size. They do stretch but the torso rise and inseam were both fell short. I also didn't think they were warm enough for NY winters. The insulated tights are probably better for winters in colder climates. I may try a small men's size to gain more length. If you are an average height you will probably have better luck than me. Sadly, there are so few items offered in women's small tall sizes. Backcountry has a great return policy so give 'em a try.
