Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small

I purchased two pairs of these shorts in the grey and beige, 5" length. They are close to great shorts: Sturdy fabric, well-made, wash well, and colors coordinate well with colored tops. I usually wear 6, but sized up to 8. I'm 5'3" and 125-130# with slightly curvy figure. There are five belt loops to fine-tune waist fit with belt, and nice side pockets. Two back button pockets--where I prefer zip ones. These are great casual shorts, but wouldn't use them for hiking as the fabric is too stiff and limits leg movement. (For hiking, I purchased the ExOfficio Nomad short, 6".)

Purchased this short a few weeks ago and love, love, love it. Have tried many different brands of shorts this summer, and this Nomad short fits the best. I usually wear 6, but sized up to 8. I am 5'3" and 125-130#. Have slightly curvy figure. The waist runs a little large, but the seven belt loops around waistband allow belt to contour fit around waist. Nice side pockets and good-sized, secure zip pocket on right front of short. The shorts wash up great, and the slate color is neutral enough that any colored top can be worn with the short. I wear short for casual wear and power walking. Great product from ExOfficio.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

I purchased two of these hoodies, the coral orange in size M for myself, and the asphalt grey in size S for my teenage daughter. The orange is bright, but complements my brunette hair; the grey complements my daughter's blond hair. The length is longer, and the fit just close to the body. Though I usually wear a Small (size 6), sized up to M due to close fit and v-neckline that needs (for us, we're both 5'3") a cami underneath. Nice top!

Ordered Rooibos color, trying both S and M sizes. I'm 5'3", 128-130 lbs., and the M worked best for me with light snug fit. The S is very snug fitting in arms and chest. Sleeves are little long, as is length, but all-in-all a great hoodie. Finally a women's hoodie in a NON-pastel, cool color!

I purchased this sweater before Christmas for holiday wear. It's soft, warm, comfortable, and the neutral color goes over many camisole colors for layering. It's a rich-looking, sporty sweater. This sweater runs true to size, the waist is tapered in to slight hourglass shape. (I wear a size 8-10 and ordered a size Medium.) There are knitted side panels that make for nice drape, and the zipper runs smoothly. Can't go wrong with Smartwool. And Backcountry's quick delivery will have it on your shoulders in no time!

I purchased these for winter walking in MN, and for traction in snowy and icy parking lots when running errands. These Vasque's have great support and stability in the heel and a wider toe bed. They are comfortable and the ties are sturdy. I ordered a half size larger than what I wear to allow for midweight-heavy sock; the half-size up is fine.

I have had this jacket for three weeks and love it. It is soft, cozy and warm. The fleece (gray color)is rich-looking. I've used it for walks and running errands, and have also dressed it up with bright scarf. I wear a size 8-10 and sized up to a Large for shoulder room. The jacket has a trim, straighter cut through waist and hip. All in all, a nice versatile jacket!
