I've wanted this jacket since moving to Seattle a couple years ago and finally pulled the trigger this season when it went on sale, and I have zero regrets!! It arrived the night before a snow storm and I couldn't be happier - it's kept me toasty in below freezing temps with a sweater underneath (or base layer + sweater for extra cold days). I love how the front zip is designed such that it's actually comfortable and warm to zip it up all the way - no need for a scarf and no awkwardness around your neck/mouth. It's very lightweight and blocks the wind well. The wind picked up today blowing snow around and I didn't feel any breeze under this coat. I also bought it because of it's packability - can't wait to take it on early season camping trips. I'm 5'9, 135 lbs and ordered the medium. I tried it on under my ski jacket, it works as a mid layer for extra cold days. I also tried it on with a bunch of layers underneath to see how much I could layer up if needed. It fits over a merino wool base layer, fleece mid and Arcteryx Atom lt hoody mid. Add this plus my Goretex ski jacket and I would be ready for anything. Without all these layers under, it still somehow looks good and not too baggy or puffy. I can also pull the cords to tighten the bottom hem against my body if I really want to trap in the heat. The dark currant color is beautiful.

How long / far exactly did it take to break these in? I bought these boots last year and *thought* I had broken them in over several day hikes. I took them out last weekend for a 30 mile backpack and they broke me. Biggest blisters I've ever had, probably going to lose my pinky toenails. Couldn't walk right for two weeks. I'm not sure if I bought the wrong size or if they weren't broken in or if these just won't work for me.

Unlike the other reviewer these didn't cut it for me in 20-30 degree weather while skiing. After a few runs my fingers started to get numb. I'm planning to switch to mittens for better warmth. However, if your hands don't typically run cold these could work fine. They were comfy, true to size, and seemed to have good waterproofing. My hands measure 3 inches across the knuckles and the medium fit well.

I really liked the fleece bottom half but when skiing in Utah in January the thin upper half was not warm enough on my face and I also had a really hard time getting it to stay up around my face in the first place. If skiing in warmer conditions this would be fine but in 20-30 degree weather it didn't cut it.

This is by far the best coat I've ever bought. I just moved to Seattle and needed something that can handle unpredictable, constantly changing weather that will likely be cold and wet, and this does exactly that. I walk 30 min to/from work and it's so comfortable that it doesn't even feel like I'm wearing a coat. Super lightweight but I've never been cold (or hot) in it due to the warmth and breathability. It is also surprisingly wind and water resistant and can handle the light to medium rain really well. I wouldn't wear it in a downpour, though, without an umbrella. The sizing is right on. I can fit a fleece under on super cold days but haven't needed to much because the coat is warm enough on it's own. I've also worn it on several hikes and it's been awesome. The TNF Grey color is fresh and stylish - I've received lots of compliments.

This is my new favorite sweater. It's soft and heavy without the bulk. Beautifully designed. However, like others mention, the fit is different than you would think based on the photo. I'm 5'8 and this sweater hits right at my hip and is a boxy fit, not fitted. But overall it is still very stylish and I like wearing it with a longer, fitted tank underneath. I also ordered the size small and medium and kept the small. The medium was bigger/baggier in the shoulders, arms, and width without adding any length, and just looked sloppy. The mulberry color is gorgeous!

These are the best. I just trekked through the Himalayas with them and they were super comfy even after up to 11 hours trekking uphill in the heat. They felt tight at first but then after sweating hard I appreciated that they were still snug and in place. Great wicking and super fast drying. Will be buying more!

This bra is the best. I just wore it on a two week trip that included over 33 hours of continuous travel and a 4 day trek through the Himalayas, with temperatures ranging from freezing to high 80s. It was the most comfortable thing I had on. I could wear it for several days in a row, sweating, moving, sleeping and it didn't stink! Only after trekking 8 hours uphill in the heat did it start to smell bad. But the wicking was on point. I never noticed that I was wearing a bra, compared to the others I brought that got irritating after several hours of sweat. I'm planning to buy more. I'm Size 32DD and the medium fit me well. Not enough support for running but perfect for hiking/trekking, exploring, yoga, traveling, and generally any low impact sweating activities.
