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

In looking for new climbing shoes, I tried on many pairs. All of them, with the exception of one other one , hurt my heel. I have a normal width foot, street shoe size 36. My heels are not wide or big. I ended up getting the size 37. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried the solutions on, as my heels did not hurt. The fit is snug with no hot spots. I tried these shoes bouldering in a rock gym. I think they have incredible sensitivity.

My old shoes hurt my feet, so I decide to look for a new pair. I ordered many climbing shoes, and just about all of them I tried on hurt my heel. I have a normal foot, medium width, size 36 street shoes. My heels are not big or wide in relation to the rest of my foot. After expressing my frustrations to my gearhead Emily Jenson, she recommend this shoe for me. I ended up getting it in a size 37.5. They fit snug but no hot spots and heel pain. I went to the climbing gym and used them on belayed climbing routes. They were very sticky and performed to my total satisfaction. I can finally concentrate on climbing and not agony of the feet.

Skratch makes the best tasting, best ingredients, and best results products out there. This drink is just one example of their quality products. It tastes better than all the rest, has natural ingredients and not chemicals you can't pronounce, and gives you great results. What more can you ask for. The Lemon Lime is my favorite. I use this road biking , mountain biking, and hiking. It makes your camelback taste better after you use it Some of these other products you put in your camelback you can never get that taste out, and it is not a great taste.

I purchased these for hiking and climbing, and was pleasantly surprised. Prana bottoms don't usually fit me well, but this one does. I like that the fabric is light, breathable, and stretchy. They fit well around your knees. I am 100 lbs, 5'0", and the size 0 fit me well, not tight but not baggy. I would say they run a little bit large. I am not a size 0, usually a 2, and sometimes a 4 in bottoms. Yes, as with all these pants and shorts with drawstrings, make the knot at the ends bigger by knotting over the original knot, otherwise they may disappear into the garment or come out. Either one of those situations sucks, but most tailors have an instrument they use to dig out or re-install drawstrings if that happens.

I initially bought my first one of these tanks tops years ago. Was pleased to discover that BD stills make it, and didn't change it. So I purchased more of them. I like this top because the internal bra fits and is comfortable. So many of these tank tops with internal bras, the bra part never fits or is uncomfortable squishing the girls. Not this one. I am a 34 C and got the size small, and the bra is just right. It is also long enough so if you tuck it in pants or shorts, it will stay there.. ALthough I am petite, my torso is long an I find many of these tank tops are too short on me. I like the cut of it as well, with the torso being fitted. THe material is substantial but subtle. I purchased all three colors, and love the colors. The colors look like what is on the website. I am 5', 100lbs, and the size small fits me well, and I would say it is true to size.

I just tried my boots for the first time in a 4.5 hour hike which was steep and very rugged and rocky. I was kind of worried because most hiking boots require or need some break-in period. Not these. These are the most comfortable boots with absolutely no break-in period required. They stuck to the rockface very well, and provided very good ankle support. The fit was spot on for me, so I would say they run true to size.

This shirt is lush, plush, thick, and soft. Simply the thickest warmest softest flannel shirt I have ever come across. I purchased one, and then ordered two more in different colors. Will be one of my winter staples. I am usually a small or extra small in shirts. I am 5', 100 lbs, 33c. I ordered the extra small and fits just right. Not tight but not baggy and sloppy. I can layer underneath with a base layer. I have other flannel shirts, but this is my new favorite.

I was looking for a low bulk, lightweight vest to wear under my ski jackets on colder days that had some stretch and breathability to it. This fis the bill perfectly. I usually wear an xs or s in tops. I am 5', 100lb, 34 c, and the extra small of this vest fit me well. I think it runs true to size.

If you are looking for a warm jersey, this is it. Very soft, plush, lush and comfy thick fleece jersey. Once you put this on, you may never want to take it off. While it is thick fleece, the top weighs very little. It is not windproof, but I have other windproof jerseys and jackets and just wanted a jersey for cool and cold weather. I usually wear a medium in Castelli form fit tops but in this one, I had to downsize to the small. It was still long enough on me though. I am 5', 100 lbs. This top is so nice, I have several of them.

I already owned this jacket in the 2016 model, and in a previous year model several years older than the 2016 model. The pre-2016 model was getting old, and I wanted to replace it. It is a great jacket because it is gortex and lined not with down so wet conditions don't affect it. It is much warmer than the Arcteryx Tiya Jacket which I also own. It is probably the warmest gortex jacket on the market which is lined and not down. So I ordered the 2019 model. The only stated difference between the 2016 and the 2019 was a zippered pocket on the inside of the jacket which was previously just mesh. This would be an improvement as it is nice to have atleast one zippered pocket on the inside of the jacket. Unfortunately, arcteryx has changed the fit of the jacket from the 2016 model. The change is that the sleeves are longer (I could have lived with this) and the length of the jacket is particularly longer both in the front and the back (I couldn't live with this). The front is so long that it looked funny on me and would interfere with my mobility. I ordered the red color which looks better in person than on the website. It is a little darker and richer looking in person. Sadly, it is going back. This is the only arcteryx jacket I have ever tried on which is too long for me.

I bought the queen size mattress for when extra people come over my house, and for car camping. I followed the directions and did not have any problems with the pump like some other reviewers did. I charged it for 9 hours which is what the instructions say.. If you do that you could fill up several air mattresses. I couldn't get the pump to deflate the mattress, and ended up just doing it manually which is fine. According to the directions you are supposed to discharge the pump because that will improve the battery's longevity. I went to discharge the pump, and it went on for atleast 15 minutes, and that was after I had used the pump to inflate the mattress. So this is a powerful little pump. The mattress was comfortable and I personally slept on it one evening.

I bought this to put on after I finish cycling on cool summer nights and early fall. I didn't want fleece because that is sometimes to heavy or warm. The styling of this jacket is super cute, and the storm color is beautiful and different . I think the sizing was correct for this type of jacket. I am 5 ', 100lbs, 34 c and purchased the extra small.

I agree with the other reviewer that shebeest has a winner here and has dialed in the fit. In form fitting cycling jerseys, I usually wear a medium because they run snug across chest and short on me. I got the small in this jersey and it fit me well and was not short. Although petite and slender, I have a long torso and am a 34c. In castelli, I wear a medium. Here, a small. This is a light jersey perfect for the summer. And it will work well in the fall under a jacket. The pattern and colors are beautiful and different.

I got this as a gift, and love it. The fabric is soft, and the cut is flattering. I am 5' 100 lbs and the xs fits me perfectly. My other friend saw this shirt, and really liked it too. So now I am buying one to give to her. I didn't find that this shirt was unduly long like the other reviewer. Think it will look great over pants or leggings.

This is an incredibly soft comfy fleece with good styling. I think it runs true to size. I am 5'0", 100, and 34c. I purchased the xs, and it fits just right, not skin tight but not sloppy either. And, it is long enough. Despite the fact that I am petite, I find many jackets and tops are too short on me. This one was long enough. It is like the stuffed animal you had as a kid, soft and cudly, and puts you in a good mood. It is thick, plush, and warm but doesn't weigh much. I liked it so much I purchased two - one in breen and one in port.

I ordered these gloves because I thought they would be good for a variety of activities in cool but not really cold activities such as hiking or spring skiing. Well I received them, and they look and felt great and comfy. They met all my expectations and surpassed them. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to me, this glove is the mens version with mens sizing. I ordered it in small, and it was way too big. I normally wear a womens small or womens medium in womens gloves, and these were huge. Sadly, I have to return them. Marmot does make these gloves in a womens version with womens sizing but they were not available on the backcountry website in a womens small or medium at the time of ordering.

I did love this jersey but it didn't fit me so I had to send it back. The material was soft , stretchy, light, and really heavenly feeling, and the styling is lovely. I normally take a medium in form fit cycling jerseys. I ordered both the small and the medium. The small was alot too short on me, and the medium was too wide in the torso and a little short on me. I disagree with the other reviewer that this jersey runs long. I have plenty of shebeest cycling bottoms (shorts, capris, and tights) and they fit me great. I just wish their tops would. Sadly, I ended up sending it back.

I really liked this Jersey. It fit me well and the material is very high tec with a grid pattern . It has mesh panels, and will be good on hot days. Alot of cycling jerseys are too short on me. I am petite (5') but have a long torso. This jersey was long enough on me both in the front and back. I intend to use it for road biking. The color is as depicted on the website. What you can't see is that the emblem and sugoi name are in silver and raised, giving it a different distinctive look. I would say it runs true to size for a form fit jersey. I normally take a medium in form fit jerseys, and I purchased the medium in this jersey. I weigh 100lbs and 34c. I got it on sale, so it is even more sweet.

I purchased these for spring skiing use on a nice day. I am usually an extra small or small in pants and ski pants. In these I am a small. I am 5' , 100lbs. I can fit a base layer under them. The fit of these pants are indicated as slim, and it is a slim fit. You may want to size up one, or order your usual size and one larger, to see what fits you best. These fit me much better than the marmot davos pant, which did not fit me at all. I ordered the deep teal, and it is a little darker than appears on the website. Only thing missing on these pants is a scuff guard.
