Love this cute tee - but runs small (which I just discovered must be a North Face problem after receiving another NF product with my order). I am 5'8, 125lbs 30D and this tee was pretty snug. Should have sized up, which I never have to do. Can't wait to wear it climbing though!

I was so excited to get these tights, but when they arrived, they looked like they were for a 6 year old girl. Had no idea North Face ran SO INCREDIBLY SMALL. I am 5'8, 125 lbs and I couldn't even get the size XS past my knees. I won't get another size because at this apparent sizing, I'd probably need a Large.

When moving from route to route (at the crag), does anyone choose to keep their harness on and then use the padded hip straps on this bag? Or do you always take your harness off?Seems like it would it would be clunky to keep taking off the harnesses, but I am then wondering how the hip straps fare when put on over a harness. Thanks!

So I admit to buying this because I am a gear junkie and it was purple. I wanted to add a trad harness to my collection for the next time I go climbing outside. I have worn this in the gym for the last couple of weeks and have been a little disappointed with the comfort factor when hanging in it (coming down) and walking in it is slightly off, as another reviewer mentioned. I had a Solution (BD) harness and feel the wider leg loops on that one were more comfortable even though the Luna's have more padding. Hoping I will just get used to it.

Sadly I have to return this dress. I bought it intending to wear it on trip to an ultraconservative area of Africa - even sizing up, the dress was too tight across the hips (I got a size Small and I am 5'8" 125 lbs) and the description failed to mention the walking slits on both sides of the dress. The slits start above the knee, making it too "scandalous" for the locale where I'm headed.
Sizing up kept the bust and stomach area from being too tight, but the tank shape design left me feeling super boxy. Overall it was not a good look even for trying to look conservative.

Love this skirt! Just got it in the mail yesterday. Fits great, even if it's a little clingy. I'm a skirt girl and wanted to expand my collection to include skirts that would be casual and even could be worn in the great outdoors if desired. I think this skirt fits the bill! The olive color and cut is casual enough to not look overdressed, but pretty enough to feel classy. I love the length too - I'm planning a trip to rural Uganda, where over the knee skirts are expected for women. This hits the mark without looking frumpy.
Material is soft but thin. Size up if you don't want a clingy fit.
