I am a small person, and I like my clothes to be fitted. I got an XS and it was way to loose and baggy. I really loved the color, graphic, and fit, but if you don't like baggy clothes I would not recommend this top.

I am impressed with the quality and durability of this product. I was surprised at the size of it...it seemed huge and heavy when I first took it out of the box, but this is the first bike rack I have purchased so maybe that is normal. The rack comes ready for a 1.25 receiver, and has a 2" adapter. The whole apparatus is inserted into the receiver hitch with one short bolt that only bolts on one side. I am not sure why they designed it this way, but it seems a bit unstable and insecure. I went ahead and bought a locking bolt that goes all the way through. This is my only complaint.

I love these shorts, the material seems durable, and the zip pockets are great. However, I wear a size 4 normally, and I had to size down to a 0 to get the fit that I wanted. The 2 would have worked but looked baggy.

I love how light and breathable this shirt is. I got it for my summer job, which is outside, and it feels like it will be great in the heat. The fit is very flattering, and the grey storm color is not too loud which I appreciate.

I will start by saying that I have been on a saga for buying the right rain jacket without spending too much money. I live in a dry climate but will be working for the summer in a subtropical zone. I wanted to find a jacket that would be lightweight and compact for sporadic rains at home in the high desert, but would be waterproof and breathable enough to hold up to the hotter and more wet conditons of my summer work site. After trying a couple of jackets from other brands, I was disappointed. The first was a thin laminate shell that was light and waterproof, but felt like a greenhouse inside. The second was Gore-tex and was more breathable and still very waterproof, but was heavy and crunchy feeling. I decided to take a look at Outdoor Research products, as I know the brand has a great reputation. After much research I found the Interstellar, which was the ideal jacket for my situation, but a little more than I could justify spending. I kept looking around and came across the Valley Jacket. From the review I read it seemed like a good compromise. It may not be ultra breathable like the Interstellar, but for the savings I thought I would give it a try, and I'm glad I did! The jacket is super light, and has a very soft feel in comparison to many rain shells. I wore it in the rain for the first time today, and the surface repelled water as well as any other rain shell I have used, and it felt really breathable. I am curious to see how it performs during field work this summer! My only complaint is that the jacket runs a bit wide. I tend to like things to be a slimmer fit, but that is not a huge concern for me with rain jackets - function is the priority! I got the Oasis color, and it is brighter than it looks on the website, which works for me! I am very satisfied to find such a great shell at an affordable price.

This jacket is a great lightweight, water resistant, wind shell. I really like that the fabric is soft to the touch while still repelling water. The cut, like most Arc'teryx products, is slim and flattering. I ended up returning it before using because I wanted a different color, so I have not used it yet while active, but it seems like it would be super breathable. I would recommend for cool weather biking, hiking, or running.

I like the fit of the jacket, but the material was not what I was looking for. When they say lightweight, they really mean it. Fabric was like a super thin swishy tent material. I am sure it would be good for cool morning runs, but I was looking for something that would hold up to rock climbing, and I don't think this would last long in that circumstance.

Good compact size and simple utilitarian design. Plus the quality is great and I love the Fjallraven logo. Plenty of pockets for organization. Only drawback is that dirt and animal hair sticks to it more than it would to a leather or PU wallet.

I have a hard time finding swimsuits that I like. This one checks so many boxes for me! I love the back that is strappy without looking like a cat's cradle, and the front which manages to be flattering without worrying about spilling over. In both this top and the Patagonia cutback bottoms that I got I ended up having to size up. I normally wear a S in swimwear, but the small was pretty tight and I was much happier with the Medium. I am petite but have some curves.

Great quality for the price, and I like the straps but I had 2 issues with this bag. 1) the shape is odd, I didn't really like how it flares out at the bottom, and 2) the strap was too long. I am short and even on the shortest length, the bag hung too low on my body.

The design on this shirt is so great, and I love the muscle cut! Also, the fabric is so soft, and has nice movement to it! I am very picky about my tank tops, and this one is a winner! Also, I love that part of the proceeds go to a good cause!

First, I'll start by saying these are adorable and really high quality. I was looking forward to them so much! I tried them on and walked around my house a bit, and they were just not working for me. The arch support is great, and the straps are comfy, but I have a narrow foot, and they just slide around. I have to clench my foot to walk in them, and that is simply not comfortable. I highly recommend these shoes to anyone with regular to wide feet, but if you are narrow these probably wont be comfortable.

Style is basic as basic gets but SO, SO comfy. These feel incredibly light on the feet like a lot of flip flops but the soles actually provide cushioning. The strap is a supple, delicate leather so the styling doesn’t look like an “athletic” sandal but they are also basic enough for casual wear. Highly recommend for anyone looking for practical flops that are like the “perfect, white t-shirt” of the flip flop world.

Comfortable, simple, high quality day pack. I’m a petite female and the pack still felt comfy on my frame once adjusted. Roll top is a nice feature for quick access and hydration sleeve accommodated a 3L bladder. Front outside pocket is roomy enough for snacks, phone and/or a light layer. Fabric feels highly durable.
