Shell of a Rain Jacket!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 3"
Weight: 145 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

Personal Measurements I Find Important:
Shoulder Size: 19" from side of arm to side of arm
Forearm Size: 11"
General Sweat Level: High (I sweat a lot)
General Heat Level: Low (I get cold very easily)

Used Product for initial impressions, hiking, but no rain
Quick Summary:
Love the Yellow, good fabric feel, is stretchy, love the venting

Review:
I live in the desert and have been waiting for it to rain...so far no luck.
But so far I like the feel of this jacket and am very excited about the pit zips for ventilation.
I have a Large which is very roomy, fits in the shoulders, but then becomes baggy at the bottom. I don 't really mind though as its a rain jacket and I'll likely be putting it over layers.
I'll get back to you about it's rain proofing ability when it next pours.

Tank-Tastic
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 3"
Weight: 145 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

Personal Measurements I Find Important:
Shoulder Size: 19" from side of arm to side of arm
Forearm Size: 11"
General Sweat Level: High (I sweat a lot)
General Heat Level: Low (I get cold very easily)

Used Product for initial impressions, climbing
Quick Summary:
Cute, fashionable, breathable but shows sweat

Review:
Really loved this tank, especially the color Pale Sage.
The back was super cute, and the armpits are cut low to not sit in my sweat spot.
Though it was breathable the light color showed my sweat, which happens often with shirts when climbing with a backpack. Though this didn't feel awful to be sweaty in like some fabrics, and it did dry out while I was wearing it.
I tried a small, which had a tightly fitted feel. I would probably opt for a medium to have a bit more room for my mid section next time.
Would wear hiking, climbing, yoga, and other active sports.

Used Product for initial impressions, lifestyle
Quick Summary:
Comfy, cozy, go for the grey to help with dirt on this light color.

Review:
Though I only got to try this on for an initial impression, this hoody was so soft!
I think it was a medium and seemed to fit very well, I was very sad I didn't get to keep it, as it seemed warm, I liked the thumb holes, and it fit well.
I tried on the Birch White, but I think the Limestone Grey would be better for those of us who are, ahem, a bit more in tune with the dirt.
This is not a layer I would take on a full day hike or multi-pitch climb, as it is not a performance fabric, but it's great for everyday.

Hybrid Heaven
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 3"
Weight: 145 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

Personal Measurements I Find Important:
Shoulder Size: 19" from side of arm to side of arm
Forearm Size: 11"
General Sweat Level: High (I sweat a lot)
General Heat Level: Low (I get cold very easily)

Used Product for Hiking, Everyday
Quick Summary:
Stylish, good layer, right amount of stretch

Review:
I really like this jacket! I love the color and the fit.
I found it's good and stretchy for full arm and shoulder movement, and the extra padding for warmth near the core was quite nice.
As a person who runs cold I did find that this jacket needed a long sleeve under layer for chilly evenings.
Love it's zip pockets.
I am concerned about it's light color for rugged conditions but so far its been dirt resistant.

I think this jacket runs small as I consider myself more of a medium, but found the large to fit my shoulders and arms better, especially with an under layer on.

What the Shell?
2 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 3"
Weight: 145 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

Personal Measurements I Find Important:
Shoulder Size: 19" from side of arm to side of arm
Forearm Size: 11"
General Sweat Level: High (I sweat a lot)
General Heat Level: Low (I get cold very easily)

Used Product for Hiking, Climbing
Quick Summary:
Didn't keep the wind out.

Review:
I should start off by saying I don't particularly care for these thin light layers. As someone who will almost always get cold, if it's windy I'll just want a jacket.

It took me a while to figure out what this jacket was meant for.
Hiking on a nice day made me way too hot, sitting in a moderate wind tunnel I still could feel the wind, even when I put a long sleeve layer under it.

The fit is a bit weird, I got a Large and it was tight around the back inline with my arm pits, and really don't have any boobs, and when zipped was tight around the chest. Though there is a bit of stretch to it.

I did like how it folded into the pocket to be light and portable, but was missing a carabiner loop if you wanted to carry it on your harness. It also has elastic at the cuffs to keep the sleeves off your hands. It did keep off some light rain though.

Pants!
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 3"
Weight: 145 lbs
Size Purchased: 8

Personal Measurements I Find Important:
Butt Size: 39" around
Calf Size: 15 1/2" around
Personal Sweat Level: High

Quick Summary:
Love these pants, have stylish details, they stretch, good for everyday but not for hiking or other outdoor sports.

Review:
Love these pants! I wore them for 3 days straight on my way into China (including sleeping in them), 2 plane rides and a trip to the Great Wall.
I was apprehensive when I got them, that I would get them on, but they stretch in all the right places, fitting my butt and calves.
I really like the little details that make them stylish, like the zippers on the bottom.
They did stretch out with wear, but not in a too unflattering way, shrunk back with washing.
Not too bad to sweat in, but wouldn't want to do prolong physical activity in them, they're a stretch-jean like material. I did have to wear a belt to keep them up, but I do that with all my pants.

LOVE. THIS. BAG.
5 5

I took this bag to China and still use it all the time.
I wanted a bag to carry my camera around and still keep my laptop and other travel things in it, especially on the plane. Totally fits under a plane seat.
I was also interested in something that was a bit more stylish.
I am constantly amazed at how much I can fit in this bag, it accommodates to fit a little or a lot of stuff.
I dragged it around China and it has held up great, water resistant (I spilled something on the front), and I love all the different ways you can carry it depending on if you need quick access or not.
Here is what I had packed in it all at once:
Canon 5d Mark iii, 24-70mm lens, gopro, gimble for GoPro, Microsoft Surface, 2 extra batteries, SD cards, Kindle, small bottle of water, light zip up hoody, passport, earplugs, electronics organizer with cables/chargers, back-up Anker phone charger, pens, pad of paper.

Summary: tons of space in a small package, stylish, durable.

Perhaps Cait Will Like it Better
3 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 3"
Weight: 140 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

So excited to own my first flannel, but alas this one did not fit quite right in my shoulders.
That being said most garments do not fit me in the shoulders, yet fit me in all other proportions. This one had extremely tight shoulders in particular. As a rock climber, broad shoulders and arms come with the territory, I normally am a Medium but have to get Larges to fit.
I gave it to my friend Cait and it fit her perfectly in the shoulders, but was slightly long for her torso. She normally wears an extra small/small.
She is 5' and I am 5'-3"
We did both agree that it was super soft, and since she wore it for the weekend she said it was warm.
I did notice 2 pulled threads after her second day of wear, so I think it would work for casual wear but would not hold up under rugged conditions.
