Size Purchased: L

Was looking for something to replace my patagonia goretex jacket- I've never loved the fit of (long/large arms/chest/shoulders, and a little snug on my hips). Thought I'd give this a try after chatting with a gearhead on backcountry. The fit on this jacket is not what I expected- the arms are long and large, but somehow also snug around my shoulders/armpits. The jacket is much longer on than I expected. It's also a bit thinner than expected. Haven't tested it out yet, but considering the price, and the fact that I don't love it, I may just return. Also- I never understood why they place women's pockets over the chest... for a relatively large chested person, it's awkward to put anything in there. For reference: I usually wear a 10/12 Size 36DD, and I ordered the Large- based on the fit of the Large, an XL would have been way too large, and a M probably would have barely fit me, so I would say the L is accurate. Dark green color is beautiful in person.

Although it's listed as a Medium support bra... it doesn't feel like it (36DD), it has a little too much give for me. The pads in the bra are extremely lumpy and odd shaped- do not lay flat at all (good thing you can remove them)... the shape it creates on my chest is kind of odd, which is what I was afraid of when looking at pictures. Also, it dips down a little too low in the armpits for me. I love the large band around my ribs, but overall I was unimpressed. I might be able to use it for yoga, but that would be probably be it. If you want an actual sports bra and you have a large chest, I would not recommend.

I read some reviews on other websites and found that many people said it runs small. I usually wear a L (size 10/12 36DD), so I ordered an XL. The XL is very roomy, I probably would've fit in a L just fine. It is MUCH softer than I anticipated, super cozy, very light weight. Would be good as a cozy layer under a ski jacket, or as a light weight fleece by itself. Love it, highly recommend.

Jacket is very forgiving and flattering for a curvy body. I found it to be true to size. Super soft and cozy, I've gotten lots of compliments on the color (blue spruce)... the picture is pretty accurate in terms of color. It's lightweight, and does not do much to protect against wind (which I didn't expect anyway). The only issue I've had with the jacket is after a couple months of wearing it, the cuffs on the ends of the sleeves and bottom of the jacket have started to pill a little bit... but I still love the jacket! It's the perfect fleece

Wanted something mainly for car camping purposes, based on the reviews, thought this would do the trick. Packed with 12lbs of ice, some food and a couple drinks. It was 80 degrees during the day, within 24 hours, most of the ice melted, on day 2, all the ice was melted. We kept the cooler shut and in the shade- not sure what happened, but would've expected a little better performance for the price. Backcountry rep reached out and offered some advice, so we will try this again... UPDATE- tried it again with more ice and less food (also cooler temps outside), ice still partially melted in less than 24 hours. I wouldn't recommend spending the money
