Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Close to ultralight. I hate how so many packs feel heavy even before putting anything in the pack. Not the Osprey Hornet.

The size works well for all my day hikes. It fits 2 to 3 liter reservoir, lunch, jacket, and emergency supplies.

My only complaint is the breast strap is too close to my neck. I bought the small size Hornet 24; perhaps the large size would fit me better.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 155 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I got three seasons of daily wear out of my previous Icebreaker BodyFit 260 leggings. They eventually wore away between the legs. Why try a different brand when I love this so much? I ordered a couple of replacements.

The Men's medium was perfectly snug for me three years ago. The new leggings are tight; but I decided to stay with it.

Bought mitts. But they are missing the rubbery tab at the end of the wrist strap! Pulling strap with mitts on is tough without the tab! Compare my photo with the main photo for the mitts.

I bought these same mitts several years ago. I loved them so much I wanted to replace them with the same mitts after some stitching broke and the insulation felt less lofty.

I received the Marmot mitts on 3/19. Since they were missing the tab at the end of the wrist straps, I returned them for an even exchange. I just received the replacement. But the replacement has the same problem!

Was I just unlucky and got two defective pairs of mitts?
Or is Marmot making the mitts without the rubbery tab now?

The feel of of these Icebreaker BodyFit clothes is amazingly comfortable, soft and warm.

I tried the BodyFit 150's; these 260's are much better for me in these colder New England temperatures. I've been using them for a few weeks and have found them great for everyday.

But watch out for the sizing! I'm 5'10" and consider myself pretty average if a little slim. The sizing chart suggest size medium. But size medium was too big. I had to return them for size small. I didn't like paying for return shipping for this mistake.

Size small is working out well, though it's not a snug as I expected. Guess I need to work out much more and build up my chest, arms and legs to fill out the BodyFit.

If size small is good for average me, what size are the many people smaller than me going to wear?!

I got this on a whim because it was so inexpensive. But it arrived dead. And I paid so little for the dead watch that it wasn't worth the shipping to send it back. At them moment I'm assuming it's just a dead battery; but batteries are a little expensive and I don't really need a watch now so I haven't bought a battery yet.
