I really want to like these shorts, but they just didn't do it for me. While they were lightweight and perfect for the summer, the color faded a little too quickly after just a few washes. Also, the fabric in front of the zipper? Persistently folded so it constantly looks like my zip is down. No matter how much I've ironed or smoothed out the fabric, it just folds/wrinkles over to expose the zipper underneath. Ugh. It's very frustrating and makes me not want to wear these shorts at all! Otherwise, perfect length (hits above the knees) and very comfortable.

Hands down the best North Face jacket I own. I was hesitant because of the high ticket price, but I'm so glad I went ahead and ordered it. I travel a lot for work, and typically via air, so I was looking for a jacket that is both packable and warm. I also get hot easily, so breathability was a must. Since it was a slim fit, I decided to go with a M. It fits looser but doesn't hang on me or anything. If I want to, I can layer with a dress shirt and a sweater underneath the jacket. I've worn it a few times now, and each time, I'm just amazed at how breathable it is. I don't overheat or sweat when I wear this jacket, even if I go inside to a store with the heat on. Absolutely love this jacket.

Wife has always been jealous of my Patagonia gear, so for Christmas this year, I got her one of her own. The reason she hasn't owned any Patagonia gear is because of their sizing. It's really meant for women with no hips. My wife's got beautiful curves, so their jackets usually pinch her at the waist/hip area. Very uncomfortable and not aesthetically pleasing. She usually wears a L, but I got her an XL this time to see if it would hip better at the hips. It was roomier at the hips, but she ended up swimming in the XL. Luckily once we washed it, it did shrank and fit way better. It's not as warm for her as she would like, but it's a good grab-and-go jacket to wear when we go out or even when she's just on the couch at home. She loves the 'panther purple' color. Overall, very pleased with the jacket. Just wish it fit better. I hope Patagonia considers that one size does not fit all women.

Honestly, I think I can donate every single jacket in my closet because of just how awesome this jacket is. I've been wanting this jacket for years, and finally decided to reward myself after I got a promotion. Perfect jacket! Pre-wash, the small fit kind of baggy. Like the body seemed to fit fine, but the arms were baggy and really wide. Post-wash, I think it fits way better. The arms shrank down and the body tightened a bit more... so I think the jacket got even better. I wear this for any occasion - to work, grocery shop, for walks, basically anything! I love that it's not overly thick but still keeps me warm. It doesn't keep the wind out completely, but I kind of prefer that because I get overheated easily. I own the raspen red and nickel colors.

I was looking for a simple jacket that I can wear to work on days when I have to look a bit more dressy. Didn't want a hood or any fashionable designs. As soon as I put the jacket on, I was very impressed with the quality and overall fit of the jacket. The quality is just awesome - feels soft yet durable, thin but warm. Only downside is the sleeves... abnormally long for a S. It fits me perfectly everywhere but the sleeves. But other than that, it's perfect. I like that it keeps me warm without making me feel overheated. The dark grey heather is a really solid color - goes with anything I have, dressy or non-dressy. I look forward to wearing this jacket on business trips!

Talk about sturdy! This is an extremely well-constructed bag. I used this bag when I went to NY for a week, and I was able to shove so much into this bag. But the bag definitely have flaws. For one, once it was packed with stuff, it made it really hard to use it as a backpack. Or am I using it wrong? Despite being full of things, the bag would 'bend' in the middle when I try to use it as a backpack, making it really uncomfortable and unbalanced. So instead, I would have to tighten the straps and just carry it with my arms. It wasn't as comfortable to carry as I thought it would be, based on all the positive reviews that I've read, so I was very disappointed with this purchase.
