These are great for travel, yoga, errands, meeting with the principal because your kid is chewing gum in class again or meeting up for a latte. Super lightweight and great fit. Waistband is very comfortable. You can dress these up or down.

I am not a fan of TNF, so straight-up you know my bias. Ever since the company moved full clothing production into SE Asia from Berkeley they have inconsistent sizing, and in particular, their women's sizing and dimensions reflect that of SE Asia rather than American Women who are in general, much taller, more muscular and (self included) fattier around the waist. Wouldn't hesitate to replace my TNF sleeping bag but not sure I will try their clothes anytime soon.

That said, the EZ Dolman shirt is a loose fitting boxy fit. I found the shirt too short on me and the arm holes small. The rest of the shirt is blousey. The tech material is lightweight and would work on a hot day hike. I surmise the material will pill under the arms and on the front. There are plenty of better tech shirts out there than this one, and much better fitting to boot.

Purchased the IKAT print because we are going on a trip to Europe and the print reminded me of the Riviera and Cinque Terre region on the Mediterranean Sea. Very cute and flattering fit. Pockets are always welcome with me, as women's clothing seems to have a lot of "fake" pockets. Get this girls, these shorts have two front hand pockets AND two real, working bum pockets. I am hoping the print holds up, and am washing in cold water inside out. I can match a French Blue button down blouse and a black V-tee with these and the outfit looks great. Somewhat of a thin material, just enough stretch.

I returned. Looking for a lightweight wallet to ski/bike/travel with as opposed to my everyday Coach wallet.
This is lightweight and will fit in most Camelback inner pockets. What I didn't like about it is the velcro closures on everything. The "Tech Specs" neglect to mention this detail. It reminded me of the wallet I had in high school. Just not real grown-up. The billfold section is similar to a men's wallet, if you're into that.

Very soft substantial fabric. I added these pants on a whim to my order pre-Europe trip. We will be hiking and biking in the alps so I was looking for something to slip on at the end of the day as the nights will be chilly. These fit the bill. Cute and comfy. I am considering wearing them on our overnight red-eye flight. They can be used as pajama bottoms as well. A great versatile piece to include on a travel trip.
Fit is on the generous side.
NOTE: Description states one rear pocket; pants have generous hand pockets on each side which is a bonus for women! No rear pocket.

Fabric is very thin, and what I thought felt like a linen blend. After I opened the package, I envisioned wearing this once, washing, and the top shrinking down a size. I found the proportions were adequate, maybe a bit on the short side so the idea of it shrinking made this a no-go. It just didn't do anything for me. Ordered the rust-brown color.

Loved the fabric and fit, although I could have gone down one size. I ordered the 14 with a 32-inch inseam, which is normally what I like to wear and the length was too long. I really wanted these in a black color too, I settled on the grey marled, but ultimately sent them back.

Bra-top is not lined. The cut on the bottoms is weird; very high waist and minimal side and bum coverage. Almost like a French cut, which is not included in the description and doesn't look like the photo. This suit is not going to happen for my very skinny, 4' 11 80-pound daughter. Not age appropriate. Returned.

I like this and it fits me, perfect with low-cut shorts and jeans. My belt is labeled as a Men's small S....just wondering if Nixon re-packaged these to sell as women's belts? No worries, tho because it works for me. The lime colored green is feminine as is the width of the belt.

I was looking for a new sports bra for X-fit. My running bras (recommend CWX) are expensive and fit tight to minimize bounce. I liked this online because it was a little fashionable and it supposedly "lifted and separated". Purchased XL C/D and it was too big. The molded cups will make you look a size bigger than you normally are (which for some women going to the gym might be considered a plus for this item....). My size is a 36-38 C/D and the XL did not fit me. Not easy to get on and clip. I foresee a lot of band chafing for the wearers.

There was a reviewer that said this item should have been lined. I agree. I see this shrinking and not holding its' shape after a washing. Right out of the plastic bag it looks fine on, cute even for work. The hood is removable. Does seem a little tight in the shoulders.

Daughter loves this: Super skinny 12-year old who is wearing the XS here.
Good quality t-shirt material with a nice blend of cotton and a little stretch. The quality of the Burton shirts for women seems better than the quality of their shirts for girls. IMHO

I bought a Size Large for my 10-year old daughter. These will likely fit her next year. The styling is a bit weird and they are on the short side with a large waist. I think this is because they are meant to be worn loose, with a low-riding waist (AKA like Boyz snowboarding pants, YO!) to make up for the lack of inseam length. For the price, these will be fine for the occasional California Bluebird Ski day, an afternoon training gates or out playing in the snow. There are adjustable waist tabs as well as belt loops. Minimal insulation that we love in Tahoe, but likely not a good feature if in the Northeast. Daughter loves the print.

There is no reason for a watch to be this complicated. I was so excited when my watch came. Best feature is strapless HRM, however, the technology has so improved in the last year I predict most HRM from 2015 forward will be strapless so it isn't that big of a "PRO" for the watch. Buttons are labeled weirdly in the online manual and the diagrams are complex. I never knew what any of the acronyms stood for: ACC (?) HEV (?) etc. There is no way to zero-out the calorie readings every day, the amount just keeps adding up. What the?.... To view calories, somehow you have to go into the CHRONO mode and hold a button down. The amount would flash then disappear. The HRM feature works great when at rest. On the treadmill doing intervals, the treadmill machine read my pulse at 155, my Soleus Pulse watch, however read a steady 90 bpm. There is a huge lag time in the HRM readings. Really? Isn't this what a HRM is supposed to help with? I need Real Time readings.

BOTTOMLINE: I don't want to be required to reference a manual on the Internet every time I want to see a stat on my watch. Needless Complicated. Sooooo disappointed because the features are all things I wanted. Not intuitive to use AT ALL. Returned.
