Wow! What a piece. It is well designed, comfortable, and feels lighter than stated weight. It is true to size and fitted to accommodate layers. It is soft, quiet, and sheds snow. I can’t speak to it’s waterproofness. I’m grateful for Jake’s (my gear head’s) help.

I really liked this piece until it ripped horizontally on the thigh while putting it on after only a couple of uses. It is warm and comfortable just not durable. I am tall and thin so it wasn’t like I was yarding it over too large thighs for the piece. Customer service was excellent, especially my gear head.

I'm relatively thin guy with a little buddha belly and long legs. I bought these to use in warmer temperatures. Compared to the regular stretch zion pant, the main difference is the tapered legs at the bottom. The waist may be slighter smaller. I would size up if you're in between sizes as the waist has an adjustable strap. Unless you are a body builder or hard core biker with monster thighs, these pants should work for you. The bronzed color is very nice and may be slighter darker than seen through a monitor. A special shout out to my gear head William Bowen for helping me find these pants.

First, the weight described is incorrect. It's closer to 10 oz. It's a thin jacket. Check Norrona's site. The unique feature is the full front vertical mesh option to improve ventilation. It is a well constructed jacket.

I really like the look of the sunglasses. I'm stoked about the purple lenses. The fit for me is loose. I have a small head and narrow face. I plan to go to the optometrist to see if they can tighten the fit of the frame around the temples. I may also have to use a cord to hold the glasses. I haven't tested how well the polarized lenses work in the sun yet.

I like the v-neck to reduce excess bulk around the neck. The color has a bluish hue to it. It's a dark silver. The hand warmer pockets don't have zippers and the waist doesn't have pull cord maybe to save weight. The fit seems to make the waist pull cord unnecessary.

This jacket is the lightest (200 grams) mid layer jacket on the market. It is well constructed and has nice detail from the zipper pulls the just the right amount of stretch in the fabric. It has many possible applications from casual to technical. I plan to use it over my Rab Power Stretch Pro Bib so it works as a base layer and the bib (vest) underneath while using a Millet polartec alpha insulated hooded neo shell jacket. I'm confident I'll be comfortable in a variety of conditions.

I am a fan of shake dry technology and combined with gore-tex active. It can keep you dry. I plan to use it for hiking.

I was on the edge of small and medium. I went with the medium. The fit may be better as a small for me. I guess I have a short torso because the buttocks are fully covered by the length of the jacket.

Also to note is that there is no ventilation other than the fabric itself and possibly loose cut. There is material behind the elastic drawstring.

The super hoodie is comfortable and has a nice warmth to weight ratio. For me, Norrena is true to fit for upper body and runs 1 size small for lower body per size chart. I like the quality fabric and craftsmanship. Getting it on sale was also a bonus.

I own two pieces from Haglofs and am impressed by the craftsmanship. This piece is lightweight and the full zips are convenient to keep hiking boots on. I appreciate the long length. It's hard to find pants with a longer inseam. I was worried that the 35" inseam would be too long but it works well for me and my insane is typically 34". I think the waist size is up to 33.5". I'm around a 32" waist.

Fit: Runs small

I'm 6'.5" 145 lbs with 33 sleeve length (technically) and usually wear small (e.g., arcteryx). This small was snug in the body as a base layer should fit and the sleeves were too short. The underarms also don't flex with you (i.e., the sleeves rise when raising your arm). I may wear it with a layer that has thumbholes to compensate. Otherwise, it has a nice feel.
