I bought this for my wife (5' 8" and maybe size 10ish with broad shoulders). Initially, we had an L and exchange for an XL and she loves the XL. Cute, feminine fit without revealing everything that you've got! She loves the long cut to come over the hips which is flattering as well. And soft/comfy.

Fit, function, looks all work for me. I like the yellow color with the blue inside. Almost a school bus yellow - not a neon yellow. The zippers are the same blue of the inside with black zipper pulls. Overall, I like the scheme with my black pants.

Perfect amount of insulation for resort ski jacket. I've only used it for a 4-day ski trip, but had varying conditions during that trip. The days the sun was out and the wind wasn't really blowing, I went with a only long sleeve 150 IceBreaker underneath and that was perfect. When it was snowing and blowing I added a Marmot PowerTec Fleece over the IceBreaker and it was perfect. Was still able to layer without feeling packed in to the shell at all. Sorry, I can't say that I used the hood over my Smith Variant helmet. I liked the sleeve gaitors but I did actually pull my thumbs out of them when putting on my ski gloves. I like my gloves a little snug so with the gaitor was a little restrictive, but still helped in keeping out the snow from your wrists.

For me, the weight and fit were just what I looking for. I'm 5'10", 170 lb with an athletic build and the M was perfect. Roomy enough for layering but not baggy. The length was perfect. All the zippers and pockets worked great.

I knocked off 1-star because there may be a couple of slight issues with quality. One patch of the shell material on the front of the jacket was a little off in color. Especially in indoor lighting, but in natural light I did not notice it, so I decided not to return it. And I am typically extremely picky (because I don't make these purchases often). Also, there was a little fraying and loosening of the threads on the inside lining, but I just snapped off the loose threads and I don't think it will be an ongoing problem. I'm just saying that for you guys that really live in your jackets and ski a lot more than I do.

I am happy and I do recommend it. In fact, looking a the women's version for my daughter.

I am very pleased with my purchase of the Stoic merino boxer brief. The things I like about them - they are long (not sure what the inseam is, but to me this is the perfect length for a boxer brief), they are snug enough to stay in place, but not restrictive, the material and finish seem to be top quality, they are the perfect weight for a slight bit of added warmth when outside in colder temps.

I have not owned them long enough to experience them in hot weather (live in TX, last Summer 70 days over 100*). I do not anticipate that they would be my first choice for outdoor activities in extreme heat.

Sizing - I'm 5'10" 170 with a 32" waist and purchased Medium - which is what I wear in other brands. It is possible that I would also be satisfied with a Small, but am very happy with the fit.

Odor prevention a major plus, can confidently wear them multiple days (under normal conditions) without washing. The deep/shale is a great color, I'll be ordering another pair.

I am definitely giving the IB Beast 150 Apollo 5 stars because it perfectly fits my need. I was not satisfied with traditional cotton tees (comfort, fit, odor prevention). This lightweight wool tee in Ivory is a great undershirt. I am 5'11" 174 with an athletic build and the L is perfect. The Apollo Crewe is a slim fit, not "fitted" or "compression". So, it clings where it should across the back/chest and upper arms, but hangs just a little around the mid section. Also, I like the way the cut is long enough to stay tucked in and the sleeves are mid-bicep and not all the way down close to the elbow. Also, I can wear multiple days before washing. Okay, for guys wanting this purely as tee and not as an undershirt...I personally would not recommend the Ivory. It is fairly see thru and almost an antique white which gives it this strange "grandpa's tee shirt" look. So, you be the judge...I would consider a 200 as a standalone tee and not Ivory.

This L/S baselayer is just what I was looking for. Lightweight, breathable, doesn't retain odor. Great fit and love the looks. They go great with my IB 150 bottoms for snow skiing and I even use them in TX when playing winter golf where the highs might be near 55/60. I'm 5'10" 170, 42" chest and went with an L. Can usually wear M, but I think L was best, non-binding and long enough sleeves.
