Cute pattern, cute straps across the back that don’t dig. Amazing support for the girls (34DD) while surfing. I don’t think the top budged once. Also a nice high neck if that’s your thing. And removable cups! All in all, kinda the perfect active swim top. GET IT.

This is my second Patagonia jacket (I also own the Performance Better Sweater Fleece Jacket in size M) and I love it. I went down a size because i wanted a more snug fit, and it works great. I can layer a sweater under this and i don't look like a human marshmallow and still have some shape. I'm discovering that Patagonia cuts well for women with boobs, which is a godsend. I'm a 34DD (whatever, I'm here to share to help the ladies) and this fits over my chest without squishing or hindering arm movement.

The blue is a nice matte blue, not too shiny. I am wearing it in 30-something degree weather and still toasty with a warm layer underneath. Wished pockets were a wee bit deeper but on the whole, this thing is worth every penny and also compresses down beautifully into its built-in stuff sack.

I’m obsessed with this thing, and was actually happy we had unseasonably cool temps earlier in June because then I got to wear this around more often. (I bought it for an upcoming walking trip in Ireland.) I love the fit, which is close to the body but not too much so, and the hood fits great even for my large head. The knit on the outside feels sturdy and like an actual sweater, not fleece, which makes it look much more polished. I just love that this is a functional, good looking piece that looks great on a woman’s silhouette, and if they had this is more colours I probably would find some reason to get another one!

I love this bag. It's just the right size for a weekend, or even to take on a plane (if you're like me and tend to take a bunch of long-haul flights). Would have loved another interior pocket or two but it's fine as is. The thing I love most are the straps. The leather is slowly aging to a lovely hue but I like that you can wear the straps on your back and carry the bag like a backpack. It's surprisingly comfortable that way.

I was looking for a good-looking backpack that I could take with me on the subway every day, that could fit workout gear. It does the trick. The straps are comfortable and the front pocket is big enough to fit bits and bobs. The strap/ hook closures are fine to work with, just a matter of getting used to it. It's also really easy to adjust the compactness of the bag by pulling these straps as taut as you like.

My one gripe is that there isn't another internal pocket inside the bag. Yes, there's a laptop sleeve, but if you have smallish things you don't want to/ can't put in the front pocket, they'll just swim inside the bag, since it's quite deep. I'm docking a star for that.

But other than that, this is a bag that is as solidly built as it is pleasing to the eye. I got the garnet-- lovely, deep colour.

I usually hate what high impact sports bras do to a woman's chest-- flatten it and turn it into a uniboob. This is the second one I've bought in this style and I love it-- racerback style is great and the back hooks mean it's easier to remove the bra. And it actually allows one's boobs to remain separate from each other. Hooray!

Not sure why some reviewers felt it's better for low-impact stuff-- this is my go-to for running. It does run a teeny bit small-- I usually wear a 34DD but sized up.

I got the gemstone color, which is deep and gorgeous. Fabric is lightweight and did a good job of wicking sweat on a hot NYC summer day, and after a workout too. Neckline is not too low which is great. I got a small since medium was sold out-- and was really happy with the fit (fitted but not tight). Love this top!

I did a whole bunch of research on poles before settling on these. I wanted something I could fit in check-in luggage. Great value even if they're not the absolute lightest on the market. I took these with me to Spain to hike part of the Camino and they saved me on every terrain possible. Collapses down well. You need an additional tie if you want the three parts of one pole to remain neatly bundled, but I stuck them in the side pockets of my backpack and that worked fine.

These were a great buy. Sure, they're not the most flattering fit, and the waist came up too high-- then again, I'm 5'4" and I was just pleased that these weren't too long. They were comfy with enough room for my legs not too feel suffocated.
