You guys finally got it right. I lost count of how many shorts I ordered last season and emailed my gearhead saying I hate to return but it’s like they forget we have powerful quads?? 5’7”, 165ish, and very happy with the size large cut. XL might be more comfortable with a liner for longer rides but 20ish mile days so far with the little liner they’re hunky dory and make fine normal every day shorts if you’re into that cut.

It's about dang time somebody gave a crap and started listening to women who bike say they need shorts that fit their muscle!!

My thighs have never been prouder to bring the thunder.
Size large fits comfortably with a size 10 booty, but could probably have comfortably went up to an XL as well, and still might to accomodate for fat liners.

Mud is a super cute color but not at allll worth fighting the sizing. I'm usually a true 10, including Prana bottoms, and wowowow they dont even begin to close let alone zip up. I doubt a 12 would begin to fit if I exchanged because there is zero stretch to the material like usual so thats a mega bummer.

Party bucket!
4 5

Zipper pocket to keep the sand out of your phone and goodies sorted, and holds most of a case of white claw so you don’t have to run back to the house to re-up. Held ice surprisingly well to have a mesh bottom. And if you didn’t know, this + the bucket in your laundry closet is a helluva lot cheaper than a new cooler.

Forget Tiffany blue, Yeti is all I want. I wear a women's 8ish~ in tops, and ladies cut jersey's always stress me out. The mens small fits relaxed but not loose enough for pads comfortably (similar to womens large), and next time I'll probably size up to the medium in the mens cut.

New add on to the uniform!

First attempt with the half buff, I have at least 10 full sized ones but admit I needed them to stay in place better as headbands and less fabric in the summer. My undercut(? half my head is shaved) makes it hard to keep my ponytail up on it's own anymore and I'm pretty reliant on these guys when I'm working out.

This print is perfect and matches our race kit to boot! Love it! (bottom right in photo) @DownshiftWTF <3 #radicalencouragement

I'm sure this is great for someone who identifies on the Thin side of fit, and not Curvy.

After a few seasons of hard wear my BD Lotus started to tear. It was out of stock and this looked pretty great aside from the fixed legs, but it was a worry I definitely had to reach out to my gearhead about. Emily was super helpful and willing to send a return label if it didn't work.

I wanted this thing to fit so bad- it wassss much nicer padding in the waist but even standing up straight it cut into my thighs uncomfortably and made a muffin top of sorts, not in a firm flex but at it's limit, and not enough to for high knees and flexed quads, or enough to sit or hang.

The entire point of a womens specific harness is to address curves. I didn't take the time or money to try the next size up, but the waist was about as big as I was comfortable wearing on the Medium and I don't think the Large would work for me.

This is an issue I run into nonstop with cycling and climbing gear. You'd think by now people would get that we have some strong ass thighs, why can we not get gear to accommodate that???

My friends laugh that I ride in these- but they still don't seem to understand how different that is than normal sneakers. For CX season I race clipped, but the stick on these guys feels sooo solid. If you can trust Five Ten rubber for climbing shoes, you can trust them to stick to your flats.

Switched to these because I originally ordered the wrong size in the og Freerider (mens 6). I wear a women's 8 pretty standard, and these guys in a 6.5 are exactly what I needed. The canvas model looks a lot nicer off the bike I think.

PERFECT. I never expected I would have such luck on the first try with a shoe fit. I love my Mythos but after about 3 years and no longer full time in the rec industry, I'm mostly in the gym and hit a plateau trying to boulder on my poor abused trad shoes. As much as I wanted velcro for connivence in a gym shoe, some unhappy demo days with BD, Butora, and Evolv led me back to the company I trust most.

I'm a super standard women's size 8 and the 38 fits me perfect.

Definitely usually true to medium in women's gloves, my last two pair were women's fingerless Giro. Size chart goes off circumference and that's spot on, but the finger length was too stubby and there's no info on that if going up sizes would help or just be too big width wise and still too short. :/

Size Purchased: 30/32

After stealing my boyfriends routinely, I finally sucked it up and bought a few of my own. I usually wear a 5/6 or a little smaller in bottoms and the 30/32 are flawless. It suuuucks that women's gear never has functional pockets, which is initially why I wanted these. Good deep front and back pockets, a ZIPPING side leg cargo (but low key and not tacky, + the zipper is covered discreetly)....and a built in cinch belt. Absolutely no regrets and next splurge is likely going to be in more colors. Climbing, yoga, work pants, and actually kinda cute just running errands if you have a more fitted top on, ladies. If you're reading this, you need these pants.

34C/135lb/5'7" and the small fits perfect. I use this for everything: a yoga crop, a sports bra, a bikini, a cute too to layer with... endless options. My only woe is the lack of choices because I would buy more if there were any!! (Hint- I like jewel tones, plum burgundy burnt orange pleaseeeee!)

The royal blue is super flattering. Runs a little large/loose- I probably would have switched for a small but was impatient and wanted to wear it out. Not nearly as light or quick dry as I expected- the material reminds me of yoga pants. A new favorite but definitely not part of my backpacking kit.

I have this cut in multiple colors. Dates, brunches, funerals, job interviews- you name it. Pick the right pair of boots and it will always be a bomber outfit. If you wear real bras with padding it's true to size, if you're like me and don't size down. I pretty typically float between a Small and Medium in most brands, but almost always float between X and Small with Toad dresses.

I work at an adventure camp and am required to have a one piece for when I'm with the kids (usually I just opt for Pata baggies shorts and a fishing shirt but sometimes it's necessary). The neoprene is pretty great for jumping into cold water, they key pocket has the potential to be helpful. The compliments come rolling in on the pattern and it's fairly flattering. My biggest issue was being between sizes- a small fit my chest and waist but my bottom spilled out like a reverse muffin top. I opted for the medium because (a) booty, and (b) I don't really have much worry about the top being a little too big since it IS a one piece and isn't going to fall off. The loose fabric isn't the most flattering but hey, I'm not here to impress 12 year olds, just make them go backpacking. While I agree the piece is true to size, I HIGHLY recommend ordering two sizes to compare and count on shipping one back if you don't have matching proportions on top and bottom.

This pad is excellent! My partner and I are indefinitely on the road/car camping and I wanted a pad I could count on to take a beating as my bed the next few months, and still fit my budget for the cush and R value I was looking for. If you remember to toss it in the tent and go set up the rest of camp then just let it do it's thing a while, the foam makes the self inflating pretty nice. I had wondered about the sizing and worried a women's cut might be smaller than ideal, but I"m 5'7" and this is plenty roomy for me.

I will say it's definitely not the smallest or lightest sleeping pad, and I can't say I'm stoked to use it for backpacking after packing down my partners Kylmit StaticV every time we move on. Knowing usually I just have to make it fit the gear box in the trunk and how much cozier I am for long term use is worth it. If you're not counting ounces and pack space, the trail pro is a safe bet.

I didn't understand the value of inner-gate biners until the day I managed to get crossloaded and not catch it until my partner was 30' up a sketchy lead... I ordered this sucker first thing when I got home that night.

It could stand to be a little lighter but it feels sturdy (I still get nervous trusting little neutrinos and the like). It spins pretty snug but smooth to lock, and stays in place though doesn't have that definitive final twist/click feeling like with a BD Screwlock. I picked this over the BD Gridlock because I can't possibly imagine what a pain it would be to have that inner gate dependent on the outer. It takes a bit to adjust to but double clipping is a seamless part of my routine now. There's probably room for improvement in the design, but I would no question recommend this for any belay setup.
