Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 145 lbs
Size Purchased: Women's XL

I'm 5'10", 145# have used the Houdini jackets for trail running, wind and warmth, and it's great! Extraordinarily light, but does the job. Pack so small I can put it in the pocket of my shorts (always wear for the pockets) if not wearing a running pack. Also, ideal for hiking. For me, worth the price.
Four stars because the torso was large on me. usually wear "medium,' ultimately bought the women's XL.

I'm 5'10", 145# have used the Houdini pants for trail running, wind and warmth and they're great! Extraordinarily light, but do the job. Pack so small I can put them in the pocket of my shorts (always wear for the pockets) if not wearing a running pack. Can wear under or over the shorts - very versatile. For me, worth the price.
Four stars because the fit is slim. I wear, ordered small' pants, had to return for "medium" to permit movement.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I'm 5'10", weight 145-150#, have narrow feet and strike mid-foot. My previous road shoes were a Montrail Fluid Flex STs (a bit wide). My trail shoes are La Sportiva Anakondas. I only have ~50 miles on the ST-2's, 4-8 mile runs so far, but the ST-2 are great road shoes for me. The foot bed and upper fit my foot comfortably. I can snug it up heel through mid-foot with the laces and still have room in the wide toe box. Although a lightweight, minimalist shoe I find there's generous cushioning/shock absorption. The road feel is superb. I've tried several other road shoes including Brooks, Merrill and the Altra One 2.5. The ST2 is far and away the best road shoe I've found.

The Anakonda is the ideal shoe for me, my feet and what I run. I'm 5'10" and weigh 150#. I have a narrow foot, men's B, and often buy women's 11. I replaced the La Sportiva insole with a Spenco RX full arch cushion insole, as I do in all my running and hiking shoes. I trail run 1-2x/wk. It's a 6-8 mile route on a hiking trail along an undulating basalt ridge: dirt with loose, angular rocks, smooth rocks and roots.
The Anakonda has the best fit I've found: snug heel and mid-foot, a little room in the forefoot. The XF out sole has great traction - dry, wet or snow - but won't wear as well as most. The out sole doesn't extend beyond shoe, permitting precise foot placement when necessary. The shoe has some cushion but still good trail feel. The wrap upper keeps out debris. I'll retire my first pair soon, have my second pair and plan to order a third.

I have an old pair of La Sportiva Colorado's, sz 44, that fit perfectly. I recently bought Wildcats. They are ~3/8" too wide across the ball of my foot and toe box too low. I want a narrow, well-cushioned shoe with aggressive tread for mud, snow. Are Imogene's narrower? Other suggestions? Thanks!
