5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: medium

I really really really like this bra. It has pretty solid support while being attractive. I can remove the inserts, which I prefer, and still feel supported without feeling claustrophobic. The fabric is soft and comfortable. It's perfect. Not sure how it will last, but still giving 5 stars.

I'm used to Stoic bras running large, sometimes, so I got the small. This one however, is definitely true to size, so don't size down. I'm a 34C, and the small fits, but is a bit tight in the rib cage, so I exchanged for the medium and it's spot on.

Comfortable and cute.
4 5

Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 135 lbs
Size Purchased: medium

These are new to me, but I like them. The fabric is strong, but really stretchy. So, you forget about them once they are on. I also think they are flattering.

I feel like I'm the max for the medium size. I'm 5'8, 140. My low waist or hip bones, are 31 and my waist is 29. I'm typically a solid medium so I guess these run a teeny bit small. But, I'll still mark them as true to size, since I'm a true medium.

The pockets are in a very comfortable height. You will use them a lot! They are deep and cozy.

the shorts are short, if you wear them at your true waist. If you wear them lower, they definitely give you more coverage. Both ways are equally comfortable for me.

They are new to me, so thus the 4 stars. I'm sure about durability yet.

Pretty!
5 5

This is really cute on, which is not necessary on the trail. But, it is nice! It breathes well, but it is a thicker material. I do favor this in the spring and fall, or for downhill. For really hot, long climbs uphill, I will wear a different shirt. But, for everything else I like this one, because it feel protective, and a little feminine.

This has a hidden pocket. So, that could be great for your cards I guess. I haven't found a need to use it, but I'd take this traveling or hiking, actually. It's a nice feature.

I'm typically a medium and top and do feel comfortable in the medium. I'm 5'8, 135-140 lbs.

I'm giving it 5 stars, even though I haven't put it through the wringer yet, because it's hard for me to find a jersey that I adore (or feel adorable in).

Another great pack from Osprey.
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have a lot of Osprey packs. They are comfortable and have lots of features that are very useful. My bigger 70 liter Xena pack has a removable day pack, which is really handy. But, that's not always needed, so this is a great option.

The lid fits a ton of stuff, which really gives this pack a lot of space and organization. But, the lid also comes off this, if you are doing a smaller trip and don't need all that weight. Otherwise, this is perfect for 3-5 nights, or even more if you are good at keeping things minimal.

The straps are highly adjustable, to make for a comfortable trek. I have yet to find anything more comfortable than Osprey, when it comes to the support system.

Warm! Finally!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I get cold easily, even in the summer. I backpack and camp mostly in the mountains. But, even deserts get cold. So, finally I decided to go with a women's 0 degree bag and I don't regret it. It's the first good night's sleep I've had in a tent in years.

If you aren't camping near water, or at lower mountain elevations, then just leave the bag open, so you don't overheat. But, at higher elevation, like 9K+ or near lakes, this snuggly bag with keep you nice and toasty.

I did use a silk sleeping bag liner, at 10K+ near water.

Cool Trail shorts
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I haven't put these through the wringer yet, so I will max out at 4 stars, until I do.

These are definitely for the trail, though I have used them for downhill. The leg tapers and it has a shorter length, which is what you want when you are climbing uphill all day. The fabric breathes well, which also helps keep you cool on the climb.

I like the pocket placements and the subtle side pocket. It can fit most phones or little snacks. The hook and loop on the waist is interesting. I didn't think I'd love it, but it actually works really well, so I honestly can't complain.

I'm a schmedium. But, the medium is good enough with these. I have to use the tightest waist option, but the thighs on the small would be too tight. So, I'm really glad I got the medium.
