Definitely a different fabric than my older (3 yr old) Elite shorts. Not matte, not super shiny- something in the middle. Comfortable material, and the usual high quality cham. Love the longer inseam (for us girls with longer legs). Regular rise: Waist is at my belly button. The waist has 3 bands, which is flattering, but definitely a little tighter and difficult to get on than my old shorts! Once on however, they feel and look great.

As I chronic insomniac, these put me right to sleep and keep me asleep. I take it about 30-60 minutes before bed. Like all melatonin products, it can give you some crazy dreams, but only occasionally. But, so worth it to take an all-natural product like REM instead of drugstore pharmaceuticals.

My 55 lb border collie mix fits well in the size medium. It stays on well (so much better than other jackets!) due to the side clasps around the torso and the neck zip. The neck zip doesn't completely zip open/apart, which is key for staying on. Also, it covers her whole back, neck to tail. She has been visibly warmer and more comfortable, and doesn't try to take it off or scratch at it. It seems pretty water resistant in snow. She even sleeps in it when camping in cold temps. Super cute!

I've been wearing these awesome bras for years, but without the padded cups. This new version comes with the cups, so trying them out. Just as comfy, and even better for those cooler days ; ) I am a 34A, and prefer the size medium (I detest any hint of a tight band around my ribcage when doing aerobic sports like biking).

These shorts have a nice lightweight material and great length. Fit true to size, and the legs are generously cut (very roomy). The rise is regular, so just a couple fingers below the belly button. I prefer low rise shorts/pants, so not for me. But these shorts may be perfect for all those anti-low rise gals!

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.
