Fit: True to size
Height: 4' 10"
Weight: 100 lbs
Size Purchased: XS

I originally purchased this jacket in a small, knowing full well that it would fit a little larger. I planned on using it for winter excursions and well.... it was HUGE. I normally wear an XS in almost everything so I knew full well it would be bigger but not "look at me wearing this huge trash bag I'm swimming in" huge. So I decided to exchange it for an XS thinking it would fit okay enough to put a few layers underneath. It fit and I thought hallelujah! An ultralight jacket I can layer under. Nope.... The armholes fit oddly tight and made it very uncomfortable to move my arms. If I stand completely still I had no issues, but hiking and staying still don't really mesh well. The arms were a little long, but hey, whatever. If the arm holes didn't fit so oddly tight around my shoulders/armpit area I definitely would have kept it. It really is a great jacket for what it is and am sad I had to return it. I returned both jacket sizes and ended up getting a Patagonia Nano Puff Jacket and am very happy with my end purchase.

Not going to lie, it was weird and a little hard to get used to having my index finger separated from the others inside of a mitten. These gloves keep my hands nice and toasty! I could see how some of the other reviewers could say they are not warm, maybe if they are standing in one place and not moving.... I'm always on the go and have never had any problems with my hands not being warm enough! The do a great job of keeping snow/rain/water out as well. I got these to use on my scooter around town when the temperatures start dropping. If I had any complaint on these gloves it would be that I went with the wrong color, which is my own fault... The blue was on sale so the price tempted me... Should have went with black. Buy once, cry once.

I bought this jacket originally for a hiking trip to CO over the summer.. It didn't rain too much but it was still nice to have it because it did help block the wind a little bit. I've used it several times riding my scooter around town and going to/from the car. I love that it is so light weight and packs up ridiculously small.. The only downside I could see is that the sleeves are quite long, but maybe that is just me. I have enough room under it to wear a heavier fleece jacket, which is perfect. Fits true to size! It does everything I could ask of a rain jacket and more. Would definitely recommend to anyone considering buying this shell.

I just purchased my 2nd pair of these boots after retiring my first pair that I purchased SEVEN+ years ago.. These boots are awesome for light snow, and cold winter days. I would highly recommend getting nikwax or a waterproofing spray to help the longevity of the boot. I wouldn't use these necessarily as snow boots, but they are good for going to/from car and being outside for short periods of time.

They run pretty true to size, however if you are wanting to wear thicker socks I would recommend going a 1/2 size up.
