4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 150 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

FIT:
The Canyonlands fleece pullover has a nice, tapered, athletic cut so expect the jacket to fit more on the snug side. That being said, this garment is not skin tight so you can easily throw it over a base-layer and be comfortable. The only downside is that I keep finding myself trying to slip my hands into pockets that don't exist.

QUALITY:
As with most TFN products, the quality of the fleece is outstanding. Keep in mind this is a very light-weight jacket so it feels a little thin. Don't let that fool you as this mid-layer will keep you plenty warm in cool conditions. However, if you're anticipating extreme weather, you will probably want something warmer.

USE:
I use this jacket over my base-layer while hiking. It's very lightweight and easily stowable in your pack. The extended zipper allows for extra breathability and the chest pocket is convenient for storing small items.

CONCLUSION:
This fleece is very comfortable and I love the tapered fit. I would recommend this to any customer who is in the market for a lightweight mid-layer that won't get too toasty.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 150 lbs
Size Purchased: 30/Long

FIT:
Most similar pants on the market seem to be excessively baggy. Not these. The Straight Paramount 3.0 are slim (but not tight) and taper nicely leaving enough room to freely move. I really like the fit of the pant. They do run a little small as the 'Regular' inseam is only 31" and the shorts are a measly 8". I originally purchased the 'Regular' but exchanged them for a 'Long' (33" inseam). Unfortunately the shorts remain 8" for all sizes, which sits several inches above the knee. While this is fine for hiking/swimming, it makes them too short to wear for any casual use. At least for my taste.

QUALITY:
As with most TFN products, the quality is excellent. Lightweight, quick-drying material keep you comfortable after a long day on the trail. Although the material is thin, they have proven to be durable so far. The material stretches and I really like the lightweight, built-in belt (which can be removed and/or replaced with a belt of your choice). The cargo pocket is well designed. So is the zippered system to convert your pants.

USE:
I highly recommend these pants for 3-season hiking/backpacking/camping. The convertible feature of the Straight Paramount 3.0 allow you to save weight in your pack as these could be the only outer bottoms you take. The mesh pockets and quick-drying material make the shorts perfect for swimming so you can lose the extra trunks as well. I wish the rear pockets had some sort of closure (velcro/button/zipper) just to help secure wallet or other items.

CONCLUSION:
Overall, these pants are well-built and practically designed for your outdoor endeavors. I would definitely recommend the Straight Paramount 3.0 to other customers in the market for a great fitting, quality, convertible pant. Just be aware of the inseam lengths and you won't be disappointed.
