I already had a Pro mat, but I wanted another one to just leave at home. I absolutely love the supportive cushion it provides on your knees and hips during practice and the nonslip feature. Highly recommend trying this mat! The color combination is also a plus. It is on the heavier side, but if you buy a strap to carry it, it doesn't feel heavy.

Fit: True to size
Size Purchased: 9.5

These were my first pair of hiking boots. I wear a size 9.5 shoe and I think they were true to size. I was a little worried that they were too big. When I would tie them and my heel would move, but I watched some videos to help tie them better. They are on the heavier side, but I bought them mainly on the look of the shoe! I changed the laces to red (which were included). Love them!

Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 125 lbs
Size Purchased: 4

I bought these to go hiking in Yosemite and they did the job. Its a nice breathable material and it doesn't restrict your movement. It is also light so you don't feel it on your waist. I usually wear a size 2, but I sized up reading all the reviews. I'm satisfied with buying a size 4. I feel that it fits me on my waist well. The waistband falls above my hips (so I'd like to say its low waisted for me). I was worried buying a size smaller would be too small on my waist. There is a string inside the shorts if you need to tighten it more.

Update: I absolutely love these shorts! Super comfortable as well! It was great during rock climbing and extremely durable against rocks. It even repelled some water droplets when I got it wet. Highly recommend it!

I've been eyeballing these leggings for a while and finally got them. They were better than I imagined! Wore them to yoga, climbing, running, and just everyday errands- they're perfect! I was debating between a XS and S, decided to go with the XS bc I like a more compression feel and happy with my decision! The small would have fit me too if I wanted less compression. It was a little hot during yoga, but I think that is to be expected. I would say they are midrise and very stretchy. It allows you to move freely and stay in place. The sustainable material and fair trade practices are a plus!!

I usually wear 26x32 in jeans and it's true to size.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Weight: 125 lbs
Size Purchased: XSmall

I was debating between a XS and S, but decided to try the XS since I like the tighter fit in leggings. It fit me well on the legs, but the upper waist was too tight for me (it gave me a slight muffin top). It should fit if I got a small. I liked the material and the color of the black and grey leggings, but returned it. It was not see through when I bent over. Going to try the S later.

I absolutely love the top! The design of the top is functional, providing a lot of support with the built-in bra, and movement for yoga and climbing. I was debating between a small and a medium. Went with the small and happy with the tighter fit look. The recycled material is very soft and breathable! Love Patagonia in general for their ethical clothing practices.

I'm a beginner climber, but I use this harness 3-4 times a week. I am 5'6", 26 waist, 124lb. The small fits me well (the leg loops are a bit big for me and aren't adjustable, but don't cause me any issues). I feel that the material is more comfortable when you're sitting in the harness, compared to the Black Diamond Primrose. It also feels lighter and conforms to your body better. There is a detachable hook in the back to quickly remove the back elastic straps. Very well made and love it so far!
