These pants are awesome! I bought these for spring CA snowboarding because I needed a lighter weight pant. These will work perfectly. They are water resistant in rain. They're a little low-riding, but not too low. They fit just like a pair of jeans--I mean like a $200 pair of designer jeans. No gaps in the waist, and fit in all the right places. In fact, they are styled like jeans with the rear pockets and slight flair. They're really flattering, and slim my bubble butt. They're not restrictive, and would be perfect worn rock or ice climbing. Wear them hiking on cool days. Wear them camping. Sleep in them camping. Walk the dog in the rain. The great part is, you can wear them straight to dinner after an active day. I will even wear these when I follow the BF around the golf course on colder days, because they're just that versitile. I agree with the reviewer who said these could be worn 10 mos. out of the year. I don't think you'll be disappointed if you're on the fence about these. And for size reference, I wear a 6 or size 27 in jeans, and the 8 fits like a 6 (Mammut runs small).

Perfect hoody! When I ordered this, I thought I'd be putting it away until winter. It's June, and I can wear it on chilly nights all year round. I live in So. CA at the beach, and we often have gloomy weather even in the summer, and 60 degree evenings. This hoody reminds me of something made by Nike or Under Armour. Very sporty/athletic. I got a medium in the Infinity color. It closely resembles the color in the photo--maybe just a bit brighter in person. It's light weight, yet thick enough to be warm. It has a super soft waffle fleece liner. Excellent Mammut quality in the stitching, smooth gliding zippers, fit, etc. I usually wear a small in Arc'teryx, Mountain Hardwear, and Marmot, but I always order a medium in Mammut. Their tops just seem to run small. Their size 6 are always more like a 4; small fits like an extra small, etc. This hoody is no exception. The medium in this fits like a small, and fits perfectly across the chest, and I wear a 32C in bra. It fits a bit tight across the chest, so those of you who wear a larger bra size may want to consider a large. It does stretch a bit, though. Not uncomfortable at all. However, the waist isn't snug, but fits perfectly. I'm 5'5"/125 lbs. The sleeves are perfect length, hitting right at my knuckles. The hood is perfect, and not too long. I can't stand hoods that fall past my eyes. The pockets are lined in a silky dark grey mesh. They break up the blue when unzipped, so they're functional and flattering. The description above says "drawcord at hood", but mine doesn't have (or need) one. I believe that's a misprint. If you're looking for a year-round, go-to hoody, you might want to consider this one. I love it.

I will be using this bag when I fly and I think it's padded enough to protect my board and my boots. I may pad it further with my jacket and pants.
The cheetah print is really cute; it's girly, but not too girly. The interior is a nice insulated waterproof liner, similar to the ones they line lunch bags with (shiny silver). I like the detachable shoulder strap and the handles for carrying. The bag is very light, so the only weight you'll be carrying is that of your board, boots, etc
My board is a bit long (60") and it fits perfectly, even with maybe an inch to spare. My bindings are still attached and I have no trouble zipping the bag shut. My boots fit perfectly (Women's size 9). In other words, it's a very roomy bag. Hope my review helps!
