Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Got a 1/2 size larger than my normal 6.5 as reviews mentioned below. I think that was a smart move. Only thing is that either my feet are extremely wide or these are really narrow. At the largest part of my foot (width wise), they are about 4". My toes were scrunching eachother and were really squished. I think that with leather they would give more room, but the super narrowness (for me) I don't think even the break-in would be enough room. I'm SUPER bummed. Feel sturdy, have great grip, nice size zipper, felt like a solid foot bed (arch support). The laces are a bit odd (to me) - and I worry how long they would last (they are waxy). Maybe they will be just fine, I'll never know cause these have to sadly go back.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Got size large, seems to be best fit for me in Norrona. It's snug, which I like - it gives me a "contained" feeling. It's not too tight to make me have a headache. Super soft inner. It's a thicker beanie but it does not overheat. Quality made, which is something I really put a lot of critique into. I haven't yet washed it, so nothing to report yet on how it washes/lasts in that regards. Hope to do that soon (thus the 4 star). Highly recommend. Got a green with blue logo. Does NOT look like what is online photo. It is a grass green, not a light neon green (I did purchase mine elsewhere however). When I did purchase the Orange Crush from Backcountry it was like a light light mellow tangerine, and not the bold bright orange the online photo showed. Just an FYI. I did like the orange crush, just wasn't what I expected.

Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 2"
Size Purchased: Medium and Large

I bought & returned this product 2 times each (LOL), and am actually considering to buy it again. WHAT I LIKE: 1) love the mesh (neckline and on back), 2) slightly dropped arm holes (so it’s not a tight fit to give me a rash cause it’s close to my armpits), 3) the silicone grippers. MY PERSONAL INTENDED USE: 1) casual/lounge wear. NOTE: as previous reviewer stated, it is true, this has no lining or shelf bra and thus no support in the sense one would think of from a sports bra. I would classify this as a crop top, but maybe it depends on your chest size and intensity of activity….. WHAT I DON'T LIKE: (it seems like I'm the only one on the planet with this issue): the neckline is too flush to my neck and is really uncomfortable for me. It’s not “tight”, it’s just too close to my neck. To put in context for you, I cannot wear a t-shirt or even base layer tops that are crews, because of this. So, keep in mind this is particular to me. It may not be for you at all! I am glad for the previous review, it helped me a lot, and I hope mine can be helpful to someone out there. Give it a go!

I have discovered Meridian Line since browsing at BC and I LOVE this top and brand. Super super soft material. I LOVE the artwork - done by hand, and I have fallen in love with " Bird Babe". So, pro's: super soft, crew neck has room and not flush with my neck, love the colors (even though slightly sheer), the tee moves well with my body. I ordered a larger size so this is loose on me. I think think a fitted style would be great too, and hope to try that in the future. Con's: I haven't found any yet. I have yet to wash this and I hope that it holds up OK. I intend to line dry. I do hope SO much, that BackCountry keeps Meridian Line tops. It's awesome that BC carries them! Don't stop!!

I feel it runs true to size - I have enough room that my feet are not stuffed front to back, but have some space. Two things that will lead me to return these (no matter how much I'm willing them to work :) is 1) They are not wide enough in the forefoot for me (reason for 4 stars). I would venture to say these are NOT narrow (probably are a Medium), and are most likely like most running shoes. However, I am finding that my feet can't do the regular size anymore, they need more room. The tightness is the sides of my forefoot. I don't think going up a 1/2 size would make a big difference for me personally. 2) There is some space in the arch area where the shoe is not flush on my skin. Only thing that might be affecting it is that maybe my forefoot is so wide that it has stretched the instep out. My feet are quirky. I like the toe box shape (rounded). I really liked the lightness of them, the breathability capacity, the comfort level (high cushion). But because my feet are too wide for them I have to return them. I would recommend these though! They are worth giving a try!

Size Purchased: Medium then small

Super lightweight, is see though very much. A muscle type tank top for certain. Hangs/drapes very nicely on me, despite my smaller chest (it's not nonexistent :) The medium fit fine on me, but to give myself a bit more coverage even when wearing a crop top underneath I went to a small. Still a muscle tank and great for showing your choice of under garment - be it a bra, crop top, halter top, etc... I will be honest, I'm not so sure how long it will last, just because I've never owned a top this thin before. I think that I will be washing in one of those net bags you can get for your bra's. I am hopeful and depending on this top to be perfect for my over heating body, come spring/summer. I love the design and shape. It does not fit flat against your lower body (at least in my experience), so it's a nice flow-y top. There is a lifetime manufacturer warranty on this, per BC, which gives me hopes of it lasting a while. Plus I love the material which is MicroModal. Recommend for casual and active pursuits.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5'
Size Purchased: XS could have tried Small

Okay, so keep in mind this review is coming from the point of view of utilizing this top for everyday living/use - not an active pursuit. I would think that as a climber or hiking this top is built brilliantly - from the way the seams are sew not "on the shoulder", to the thumbholes, to the breezy flow, to the drop tail hem for extra coverage (and nice feminine look). I'm kind of picky with my necklines (don't like crews that sit flush with my neck, I like a bit of a scoop, and I don't really like boat necks, for whatever reasons not relevant here). The material was brilliant, so soft, and Stoic is a super nice brand and well worth the money and investment IMO. This is an ideal top for active pursuits. Just didn't like the style/fit on me. I would encourage others to give it a try and would definitely recommend it. Runs slightly large, depending on how fitted or how loose you want it, you may have to try a size or more. I am usually a medium, but sized to XS and it wasn't tight AT ALL, but I think I would have liked it more if I'd gotten the Small. Hope this helps a little. I don't have much of a chest so I have to be careful on scoop necks or it's just like I'm opening up a tunnel for people to look down when/if I bend over. I've tried a few other of their tops in this line (or is it only one other...I forget) and it's a very nice top in regards to material and function. Looks like it's selling out fast, which is a good sign! Hope you find it suited to your liking!

Almost embarrassed to say how many times I've bought and returned and bought and returned this top. I have tried several sizes (small and medium, I know the large would be too large in the chest, and the XS would be toooooo small :), thinking it might just be size that's my issue and I've come up with nothing. I think it's just my body build and the design of the top: the under arms (no matter what size) rub too much (towards the front underarm). This top is beautiful - the design is brilliant, very soft. Lightweight but not see through (I haven't tried the white though...). I highly recommend anyone giving this top a try cause it may just be your favorite new top! I just wasn't lucky on this one. I can't really comment on if the sizing is true to fit or not. This review would not be a reliable source for that info.

I agree with Zoe with her nicely done review of this top. All of what she says I agree with. I only found it a tad too see through (for me). So, I think it depends on who you are and what type of fabric you really like to wear. I returned mine due to price (I bought full price) and the see through. But it's a super super lovely top and would be so great, like Zoe says. I may actually buy since it's on such a good sale right now :)

This is soft, comfortable and such a lovely all around design. I like the cap sleeves, the bottom hem shape and I'm not sure what it is, but I really liked the scoop neckline on this top, on me. I bought on full price and didn't feel it worth it so I returned. On sale I would say go for it! It's unique, great for many occasions/styles. I have a smaller chest and the small fit me best, while also draping on me in the way the photo shows. I'm not sure how to say if the sizing is correct or not. I tried both a medium and a small. I could have gone with medium, but the small fit just a tad more nicely.

Very comfortable, soft, don't realize they are on (is that a good thing?!) The tags are a bit too much - I actually haven't gone to the effort to see if they are cut off tags. I can update you later. Breathable, wicking. I love these. They have lasted well with my many washings. I'm not sure about sizing. I am a Large in some others and in these the Large would have fallen off. So, I'm not really reliable for that info. Hopefully someone else comments on that!

I don't know if this is good or not, but a majority of the time the colors of a product can really influence me to purchase or not. I am not really in love with the colors Marmot has right now. I know that it's hard to meet everyones preference so that's like impossible and not their fault (IMO). The shirt quality seemed excellent, well made, not thin (or not too thin), the length, the thumb holes,scoop neck and shaped hemline really were what I liked a lot. I think in the end I just didn't like how it fit on me (or the colors - they make me look more pale than I already am!) Note**I've kind of had some issues with Marmot before (like not feeling like the fit on me worked very well), so maybe my body type is not matching up with their designs. So please don't solely go on my review of if you'll purchases or not :) I think Marmot is a fantastic and reliable brand. I would recommend this, I sensed it met all the feature descriptions and would be so soft to wear.
