What a great bra! This bra is made to get the sweat off of your skin without staying wet itself, and it does just that. So far have gone hiking and done yoga in this bra, and it performed beautifully. I ordered a medium as I am 5'6", 120lbs, and a B-cup and it is a very good fit; snug without being too tight but allowing you to perform high-impact sports comfortably and securely. Will probably be ordering another as there are great colors, and I love the criss-cross straps!

Love the unique back design of this bra! I ordered a medium as I am 5'6", 120lbs, and a B-cup and it feels like a very good fit. Have yet to test it on a workout, but I am quite excited to try out the "power cooler" feature!

Love this bra! I ordered a size medium which fits me perfectly at 5'6", 120lbs, and a B-cup. The graphite is a great color pairing with the white straps, and I love the unique straps in the back! Looks exactly as pictured. I'm very excited to start working out in this bra!

Fit: Runs large

Bought some running shorts for my sister's birthday and her thoughts were..."Love the feel of this short. I normally order a size medium in tops and shorts as I am 5'5" and 140lbs, but I the small is a much better fit for me in this particular short. Feels great and can't wait to start running in them!"

I bought these for my sister and her thoughts were..."An excellent pair of shorts. I normally order a size medium in tops and shorts as I am 5'5" and 140lbs, but I had tried these on in a store and the small is a much better fit. Breatheable, easy to move in, and much preferred over the similar Nike short."

This is a very flattering pair of tights! The fit feels great and true to size. I only wish that they were a bit longer, as the cutoff is just under my knee (I'm 5,6") and I prefer capri tights to go down to my calves. That's only a personal preference, but I'm keeping them still because of the unique color and great fit!

LOVE this ski. I'm 5ft6" and weigh about 115-120 and rode the 166cm in Jackson Hole for a couple days recently (I'm a PSIA level 2 cert, to help gauge ability here). We had all kinds of conditions, ranging from 17inches of fresh fluff to heavy, mucky snow on the lower mountain at the end of the 2nd day due to warmer temps; and this ski handled well in all of it! Great float in the deep, quick and easy to turn in the trees, and solid enough to challenge the crud. Even with a 110mm underfoot, this ski still held a good edge on the groomers with little chatter. Would definitely ski this bad boy (or girl in this case) as an all mountain ski, not just on the deep days.

Although I was glad to have polarized lenses, I was not happy with the fit of these sunglasses. Fashion aside, (the look was fine), but they were too tight. That is crucial to me when I was planning on using them for outdoor activities. For the length of time I would be wearing them, comfort is too important, and these aren't going to work.

I loved this glove and was so bummed when it didn't fit. I have the Marmot Glide Softshell Glove in a Medium, which is kind of small, and this mitten was HUGE in the medium. Seems to be great quality and the 3 finger option provided great dexterity but had to return it.

I have pretty small hands but kind of long fingers. I had tried these on in an XS and they were super small so I sized up 2 and went with the medium, as I usually wear small in gloves. These fit perfect in the finger length but are tight in the palm when you try to stretch your fingers out (similar to how you want a water ski glove to fit). So not super ideal but I'll still keep them because the material is just what I am looking for... just thick enough to be perfect for touring and spring days.

I bought these gloves for my dad and they were great for skiing. His hands did get a bit cold, but it was often in the single digits where we were, and I suspect they'd be perfect under slightly warmer conditions. I can't speak to the durability of the gloves since this was the first time he'd worn them, but they seem to be extremely well-made.

These gloves were really solid. I think I tested their limits by skiing in the single digits because my fingers did manage to get cold after a while. (I get cold easily tho) If you're planning to ski in these kind of conditions, I would be sure to have glove liners or hand warmers on stand by just in case. Otherwise, I loved the fact that the gloves hook around your wrists (so you can't drop them), and the separate pointer finger made it much easier to use my hands without taking the gloves off. I have fairly small hands, and I went with a size 7 -- I think I could have gotten away with an 8, but the 7 was fine.

I'm 5'6" and about 120lbs - I ordered the jacket in a size Small, in the blue color, and it was perfect. I was able to fit two layers of long underwear and a thin down jacket under it for extra warmth. The jacket withstood sub-zero temperatures and was great at blocking the wind. Like any Arc'Teryx product, it's beautifully made and designed to last for years. It's definitely an investment, but I know I'll have the jacket forever, so I'm fine with that.

Great exercise or lounge pant. Kept me plenty warm during an early AM aerobic walk in single digit temps. I'm 5,6" and 120 lbs; and the XS was a perfect fit in the hips but too short. The small which I ended up keeping, is a bit long and baggier fit; but works and is super comfy.
