I can't really comment on the performance of this day pack, as I haven't had the opportunity to use it yet.

I wanted to write this review to let everyone know that the Desert color is much lighter than thepicture on the Backcountry website.

The actual color is much closer to a light color sand, which would make sense, seeing as the color is named Desert.

Size Purchased: Large

Overall, this is a great shirt for running/outdoor activities.

Fit: This shirt was designed with a runners's body in mind. While it is not super tight, it is contoured to fit the body of an in shape person. Specifically, the area between chest and waist is form fitting, so if you have a bit of a gut it will show. I am 6', 210 lbs, and the large size fits perfectly. However, if I put on a few more pounds I might be in trouble...

Feel: Please note this is a merino wool blend. It is not as soft as a 100% merino shirt, but it sacrifices softness for performance. It is still a very comfortable, itch free shirt.

Performance: I ran about 3 miles while wearing this shirt. I sweat like a beast and this shirt was able to keep my cool and dry throughout my run.

I would definitely recommend this shirt. I waited until it went on sale (20% off) to order it. Keep an eye open for sales and get this shirt !

I absolutely love these shorts. While the initial fit is a little tighter than other Kuhl shorts in the same size, after you wear them they loosen up a fair amount. I normally wear a 36" jean and and 36" Kuhl shorts fit perfectly. Not super tight, not loose enough to droop. Speaking of the waist, it is cut so that it rests higher on the lower back than in the front. This prevents the short from sagging. I was able to go biking/hiking without even having to wear a belt because of this feature.

The stretch fabric an absolute dream. The shorts don't grip at all when you move around; I honestly felt like I wasn't wearing anything during the physical activities. The zippered pockets have mesh lining, so plenty of air came come through to keep me cool and dry.

I can't recommend these shorts enough !

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Height: 6' 00"
Weight: 210 lbs
Size Purchased: L and XL

While the majority of this pant is made of a stretchy material, the actual waistband is not. There is an adjustable strap to tighten the waist, but once the strap is let all the way out there is absolutely no additional stretching.

I am 6', 210 lbs. I wear 36" x 32" jeans.

Based on the Prana size chart, I ordered a large (32L). Even with the adjustable strap let all the way out, the waist was uncomfortably tight. Because the waistband has no give whatsoever once you max it out, I had to return the large size.

I reordered an XL, and the waist was comically large; there was at least 2 extra inches of width. I had to pull the adjustable strap as tight as possible just to keep the pants from sliding down my legs. The pants bunch up horribly with the strap pulled all the way tight, and they ended up being as uncomfortable as the large size. So I had to return XL as well.

I wish these pants were designed with a more flexible waistband; it would cater to a wider range of waist sizes.

Ignore my star rating, the feedback system forced me to choose rating.

Fit: True to size

I am 6' tall, 205 lbs, athletic build. I find the large size to be a little snug but wearable. The extra large is definitely too big. I measured the large size Quince jacket as follows:

Chest (armpit to armpit): 23"

Center back length: 28" Please note there is not drop tail hem on this jacket, the front side length is the same.

Sleeve length: 35"

This jacket is an "athletic" fit and is not as boxy as less expensive North Face products. However, the arm holes are cut fairly high and are snug underneath your arm pits. This could cause issues if you are muscular or have a wide chest/back. I would DEFINITELY recommend trying on this jacket before purchasing.

The Quince is extremely warm; most likely a factor of the snug fit and 800 fill down. It fits/compresses well as a midlayer beneath an outer layer. The jacket is also very light weight; it is also not very bulky when compared to other "puffy" down jackets.

I would definitely recommend this jacket, but I would encourage you to try it on to determine your correct size prior to purchasing.
