Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 200 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

I have thicker arms and chest from lifting and always wear a Large T-shirt. This shirt fits perfectly, leaving me room in those areas and not making the shirt look like a compression shirt. Its neither slim fit nor baggy, but fits just right. the length falls just past my waist and the width doesn't make my body look boxy.

I bought my first pair in 2017 and loved how durable and short they were. The thighs are a lot wider than normal shorts, but I like the range of movement it allows since my thighs are more athletic. I decided to get a second pair on sale and the shorts this year do fit a little more snug. The material seems slightly thinner too, but it still feels durable. The thigh opening isn’t as big either and looks more like normal shorts. I give it 4 stars because I like the new smaller thigh opening, but don’t appreciate the tighter fit.

I bought this shirt in the High Rise Grey (which looked more blue) and Storm Blue (which looked more red with a bit of blue) and am a big of fan of both. The fabric is thick and sturdy, but comfortable on the skin and the buttons seem sewn on well. I mainly wear this for going out and for short hikes and I did get to test its durability one night when after a few drinks, it seemed like a good idea to be pushed down a hill on an office chair which resulted in me crashing and skidding across the pavement. I came out with several scrapes but the shirt was still in one piece with no holes despite skidding along with me.

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

I took this backpacking along the Oregon coast and throughout the trip they were very comfortable and breathable. I am normally a size 32 but these seem to fit a lot slimmer so I got a 34 and that ended working out well although I needed a belt to tighten the extra space. I have the Columbia silver ridge version as well and compared to those, the North Face convertibles seem to be made of a thicker material, but both are great. I haven't experienced the pocket problem mentioned before, but the only thing I carry in my pocket when I hike is my phone and pocket knife and they feel like they do in any other pants. Besides the backpacking trip I have only taken these on short hikes in the small mountains surrounding Eugene although there's not much out there to beat them up. I bought the brown color which turned out to be a lot lighter in color than the picture makes it out to be but it still looks nice. Once I have the opportunity to take these out more I will leave an updated impression, but for now I recommend these.
