Familiarity: I've used it several times

Let me explain a couple of things. 1- I have a thing for jackets. 2 closet full of jackets. 2- just moved to Buffalo, NY. So- now I know cold and jackets. I decided to buy this jacket because the website rated it a 4 out of 5 on the warm scale and no fur hood. I used it during the current snowstorm. 1st day: tshirt, north face sweater and jacket. I had sweat rolling down my back! 2nd day: long sleeve T, down vest, and jacket. Had to unzip. Honestly, I walked around in a long sleeve T and the jacket. Plenty warm. Seriously considering just undergarments and the coat.

I did size up. I got a large but I really wear a medium. I could have stuck with the medium. I'm 5ft3 and 147lb. Plenty of room in the large but it doesn't look huge. I love the backpack straps so when I take the jacket off, I can wear it. If you can afford it, buy it! You'll be extremely warm in this coat.

They're dishwasher safe and work really well! I like the clip and how lightweight they are. The biggest flaw is the size of the spoon. It is HUGE. I doesn't fit into youplait yogurt, so think about what you're packing your food into and see if the spoon fits into it. The orange looks a little like a kids toy, but it feels great in the hand. buy them!

I've got 2 pairs of these and love them. I bought 2 pair even though you can change the lenses (I was afraid I'd mess up the lenses). I was even able to wear my glasses under these goggles, but they're NOT eyeglass compatible. They NEVER fog unless you stick them on your head for a while. My glasses fogged, but NOT my lenses. My vision isn't distorted and they're pretty sturdy. Buy them!

I got these as a christmas gift last year. I do remember them being tight, but they streched and fit great now. They're really warm and comfy. I agree that my ankle gets cold at times. I've gone out the the garage and to get the mail in them, but wouldn't recommend making these outdoor slippers. VERY warm, fuzzy and comfy. I ordered the boots and they are just too small. These seem to end up more true to size.

I'm 5'2 and 120lbs so the bag might just be too big for me anyway. The bag is HUGE and can easily hold my computer, school books, pens, pencils, a jacket, etc..., but there are a few problems with it. 1- no handle on the bag so it makes it tough to put on/ off and adjust on your body. 2) the "waist belt" is a joke!! It's just a 1 inch velcro strap and it's way below my waist, so I can't even use it. The bag is so big, it becomes really easy to overstuff it so weight becomes a problem. I'd suggest a bag with a handle. The PVC lining is nice and there is a seperation for the computer. A really nice pen/ pencil/ cell holder is a pocket and there is a nice pocket to put whatever. My last complaint is there is no place for water! It needs a hydration thing on the side.

OK... So everyone makes fun of me when I wear this because they say I look like I'm going to be shot out of a cannon. I'd agree that it's NOT the best looking hat I own. With that being said, it is the ONLY thing I can wear when I ski. It's WARM, light weight, windproof! Needless to say, I may look strange, but I don't have red ears or feel like my ears are going to freeze off. This hat will keep your ears AND head toasty through LONG days of skiing!

I bought this to wear instead of my polypropylene long underwear. This top is wonderful. I live in the desert and I can wear it alone and I'm not too warm or cold. I also took it skiing with me and it was awesome. I can zip up the neck so I didn't need a neck gaiter. I like the thumb loop which allowed me to keep the sleeves under the gloves for added warmth. The top as I said before looks great on its own. The flax color is an olive green color, which I couldn't tell from my computer. All I can say about this top is BUY IT. Like I said, it kept me warm in below freezing temps and cool in 70F weather. You'll get your money's worth!
