I'm normally a size 4 in pants, and got a 4 in these- they fit great, but they are a very slim fitting around the waist/hip. Low-rise, which I love. About a 32" inseam. The material and fit make them quite flattering- I think I will be wearing them more as a casual pant rather than a hiking pant due to the fit. Nice pants, but pricey!!

I agree with the previous reviewer- Mountain Hardwear tops have always been made for short women. If you're not 5'5" or shorter, forget about it! I'm 5' 7", and normally a XS or S in tops, and the S in this top was a bit too short in length. But my main reason for returning it: I have skinny, spaghetti arms, and the armpit area of this shirt was so tight! No movement possible without pinching. Bizarre. What's up, Mountain Hardwear?

I'm normally a size 2 in dresses, and I got size S in this dress. Besides the flattering, slim fitting chest area, it's a very relaxed fit/ roomy. I ended up trying a XS, and it fits much better- especially around the empire waist line, looks much better. I could go with either size depending on what fit I was looking for. Wrinkle free fabric, which is nice. I wish the fabric was thicker for coverage, but it's soft and comfy. I'm 5' 7", and it falls to just above my knees.

Well designed helmet- sleek, not as tall as Giro helmets, which is nice. I am between a S and M in Giro helmets, and the M in this Catlike Leaf fits great. The retention system is easy to adjust and comfortable. Super lightweight, too.

The material, quality, and features of these shorts are super awesome. And I love the long length. But the sizing is crazy town! I'm usually a size 4 in pants/shorts, and I ordered the size S. The waist/butt was perfect- definitely could not size up or it'd be too big. The legs were almost skin tight, and I'm an average sized female road cyclist (skinny gal with bike quads). So sad- I was really excited about these shorts. Please fix the sizing, Yeti!

It was much thinner fabric and slim fitting than I was expecting.....more like a base layer than a cardigan that goes on top of something else. And, if wearing it as a base layer, I don't really want a full length zipper next to my skin. Quite long in length, which is nice. Size up if you want to wear this over another layer.

Exactly what I was looking for- super thin, light layer that serves as a windblock when I need it. Stuffs in bike jersey pocket. Arms are nice and long, which is great. Drop rear, great length jacket. The fabric feels nice against bare arms, too (it's 'soft'- not like a slick rain jacket). I'm usually a Small or size 2 in tops, and a S in this jacket was perfect- slim fitting, but roomy enough to put a bike shirt or two underneath.

2014: These are great pants- super lightweight but sturdy material. They do seem a touch longer than 32" inseam, but they work for me. They are medium to slightly low rise in the front (which I love), and higher in the back, which is such a cool feature for when you're moving around, squatting, etc.
I normally wear size 4 in other brands, and a size 4 in these pants fit comfortable and roomy. I don't even need the drawstring- may even just remove. I'm sure I could wear a size 2 and they'd be more fitted around the butt and thigh, but I choose comfort over fashion ; )
**Update, March 2015: I ordered a second pair of these awesome pants, and Kuhl must have changed their manufacturer, as the fit is a bit different: it fits slimmer,the material seems a bit stiffer, and they started hemming the super long inseam. So, instead of a long, 32" inch inseam, there is a sewn 2" cuff at the bottom of the pant, making it at least 1.5 inches shorter than my 2014 version. I like the new shorter inseam, but not the fit otherwise. The labels inside the pants are now black. My old pants have a grey label. I love my old, 2014 version! Will have to treasure them....

Wish Zoic made a chamois-free version of these shorts, as the outside shorts are good, but the liner not so much. I would remove the liner and just wear a higher quality Pearl Izumi or other chamois. Higher rise in the front than other shorts. I like the long inseam. I'm a size 4 in pants/shorts, and wear a Small in these Zoic shorts.

These shorts are awesome! Super lightweight, no random zippered pockets or unneeded features. Plenty of room for my favorite cham underneath. I love the 13 inch long inseam- perfect coverage for all-mountain, downhill, and cross country riding. Comfortable low rise in the front, too. I'm 5'7", and a size 4 pants/shorts, and a size 26 in these Dakine shorts. (Size 24 fit great, but too tight when actually riding a bike).

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I truly love these shoes- I have a 2012 pair, put about 2000 miles on them, and will probably need replacement in 2014. I haven't had any problems with the sole coming off like the other reviewer- the shoes are just getting too soft after a couple years. I have an average size 8 foot, and they fit true to size. The sticky climbing-shoe type rubber sole glues you to the pedal like you're wearing clipless (assuming you have flat pedals with pins for traction). And, the high inside padding of the shoe has protected my ankle many times. They are so comfortable, too. Highly recommend if you are using flat pedals.

I have the Butterfly Carbon on my mountain bike, and it's a dream. I thought I'd try the lower priced CroMoly version for my road bike, but it's too soft. It feels like heaven for the first few minutes, but not supportive enough for long rides. This would be a great saddle for non-road bikes. The wide width of the rear is awesome, but the nose is too wide for me for road riding.
