I took this shirt on a 2 week adventure travel trip to China in July.. even though it was in the 90s-100s, this shirt worked like a pro. It protected me from the sun, was breathable, and dried quickly even though I was sweating bullets on the Great Wall. I hand washed this shirt a couple times on my trip and it was dry after a few hours. The fit is true to size, albeit slightly boxy for my trim waist. On days that the heat wasn't totally oppressive, I tied a scarf around my waist to define it, solving that issue.

The white is definitely see through, even with a nude color bra. I also found the tank to be more old-fashioned in terms of fit (shorter, wider) than most tanks out there these days. That being said, the material is lightweight and stretchy.. I can see how it would hold up nicely in hot weather. Also, I ordered a small according to the size chart and in general it fit well, if not a tad loose (I think that's the style).

I ordered both a 6 and 8 since according to the size chart I could be either with 38" hips. The 6 was creating those lovely whiskers around the hip area, and the 8 was OK around my hips, but huge at the waist (I have a 27" waist). I have a couple other Columbia bottoms (Mumbai Mover and Zambia Zen) which both fit very well in an 8. Fabric seems to be very lightweight and conducive to outdoor pursuits.

The description of these pants is different than what the pant actually offers. There is only ONE pocket total (the pocket with the red zipper on right rear) and the waist is NOT adjustable. Decent fit, although based on the measurements I am a size 4 (27" waist, 38" hip). I found the waist to be a little tight, while the hip, leg, and overall length were perfect. Also found these to make a rather loud "swishing" sound when I walked, and my legs felt hot just trying them on. I ended up going with the Columbia Mumbai Mover pant in an 8 x 32 which DOES have 2 front zipper pockets plus 2 regular back patch pockets, plus belt loops if I ever want to wear a belt, and made less of a "swishing" sound.

If you're borderline on the sizes, when in doubt, order up! I got both the small and medium and went with the medium. The inside is fleecy and soft, and the outside is smooth. The waistband is also fleecy and is nonrestrictive and does not cause muffin top, something I was very pleased with! Wore these for 3 days in Breckenridge, CO, skiing and kept toasty warm with Smartwool knee high ski socks. Smooth outside layer was great for not catching on my ski pants and did not restrict movement. Didn't need any other baselayer bottoms.. these were perfect for low-mid 30s plus insulated ski pants. I love them!

Purchased these as well as the Deluxe Thermax Glove Liner, and ended up keeping this pair! Silk liner is very soft and almost unnoticeable under winter gloves. Also felt like the seams on the silk liner were not as bulky as the Thermax liner. These definitely keep my fingers toastier than without a liner.

The green color is great! Got it today.. see myself wearing this over another workout shirt, or just over a sports bra for active yoga/pilates. My measurements are on the larger side of a small (based on Backcountry.com's sizing chart) so I ordered a small - it is definitely fitted like the picture shows. If you are insecure at all about your tummy, I would order a size up because this will show off any imperfections if you have any - it's that fitted. I can't see myself wearing this casually, but definitely will wear it to the gym and for outdoor cardio stuff.

I SO wanted this to work for me - the quality and workmanship on this snow suit are perfection and I absolutely love the stylish look. However, I tried a medium based on my measurements (I'm barely a medium in TNF measurements) and I was literally swimming in the suit. I should have known because all my TNF jackets are smalls despite the measurements chart showing me as a barely-medium. I had ordered the black and the reviewers before me are right - it is more of a charcoal, which is actually more flattering. A couple weeks later I saw a small was back in stock so I ordered it - everything was perfect except for the pant length; too short! I'm almost 5'7" and these were about an inch off the floor in bare feet. To me that is too short. This time the color I got was the blue - and it definitely is bright! But in a fashionable way, not too kid-like.

I'm also an Icebreaker junkie.. I wear size small in Icebreaker tops based on the sizing chart and find the tops to be flattering yet fitted, which is perfect for me. This shirt in Jungle looks great with the Saturn skirt in Pinot.. I really like the pattern on the shirt, it can either dress up or down an outfit while still being cute! As for functionality.. I wore this for 3 days during my trip to Florida and it still doesn't smell and could be worn at least a couple more days before I wash it. Perfecto!

This skirt is GREAT. Basically lived in it in Florida for a week, it was ultra-comfy and stylish with either flip flops or cute ballet flats. The Pinot color is a deep purple that I think looks good with just about any color of top. I wear this on my hips as well, in a small (I'm a 4-6 in skirts). Like another reviewer, I don't need the drawstring as the waistband elasticity is sufficient. Hits just above the kneecap for me, and I found the material to be super soft and not see through at all despite the 190 weave. Buy one! :-)

I also have the matching long-sleeve Nature Lite, and both get a lot of wear. I don't wear the cami by itself, but it's a great baselayer under a T-shirt. Definitely helps with wicking sweat in warmer climates, and providing a little extra warmth for the colder ones. I've worn it for 4 days before and it still doesn't show signs of needing to be washed! I haven't yet, but will probably wear this cami to sleep in as well. I bought a small (size 6 in tops normally) and it is fitted yet not quite as tight at the BodyFit line.

SO pleased with this purchase! I wore this the day after I got it to this bootcamp class I go to every week at the gym. I've always worn Nike DriFit T's, among others, which have soaked through with tons of sweat by the end of class, it's pretty disgusting. However, the Icebreaker T wicked away ALL the sweat and I didn't feel overheated wearing wool. You couldn't even tell where the T was wet! Better yet, other T's have left me feeling cold and clammy while stretching afterwards in the gym, but not the Icebreaker! It also doesn't smell at ALL even after an intense workout and I'm wearing it again tonight to another class.. I am 100% sold.

I was so excited about this T that I forgot to mention how it fits.. like most other Icebreaker tops, this is designed to be fitted. I ordered a small like I always do (size 4-6 in tops) and it's fitted but not skin tight like the BodyFit line. Hits mid to low hip, is slightly longer in the back (great for when bending over), and does not ride up.

Thought this would be a great hoody based on previous reviews, but boy was I wrong! Other than the super soft material, this hoody has nothing going for it. It was truly laughable when I tried the hoody on - I looked like a sack of potatoes in this thing. Maybe it doesn't help that my waist is rather small and didn't fill out the middle section, but this hoody was just not flattering at all. Definitely going back, not even worth the stellar price I paid for it on SAC.

A sweet SAC deal later, I am hooked on this sweatshirt! Just arrived today and I have not taken it off yet.. Love the interior fleece lining, definitely good for winter. I ordered a medium based on the chart and it fits great. My hips are 38" and the fit is snug but not too tight where the jacket ends at low hip (I'm 5'7") and the sleeves are plenty long. Got the niagara blue, which is a bit darker in color than the picture shows, which I actually prefer. Only wish the "Oakley" stitching on the front left pocket stood out more so everyone would know where it came from!

I normally wear a size small in TNF jackets (I have the Furallure Tweed in a S) but got this one in a medium to accomodate all the jackets I wear with my work outfits in the winter. In that respect, the medium has plenty of room. However, the M also made me look extra puffy and big which is NOT the look I was going for. Only other complaint is that the exterior fabric picks up a bit of lint which is noticeable on the Ink Blue color (more of a gray-navy). This jacket is definitely warm, though, and will do the job well when temps get into the single digits. The belt around the midsection is quite slimming I think and the fur hood is awesome looking. Just make sure you don't buy it too large or you'll look too puffy! :-)

I did not have the same hose freezing incident as another reviewer stated. I skied in NY this past weekend with -25F windchill for 6 hours straight and the hydration tube did not freeze. I maybe drank from it 3 times during the day and had no issues whatsoever. Also fit very well around my 5'7" frame with a ski jacket, especially with the strap that wraps around your waist to secure the pack. it didn't hinder any movement going down the slopes, either. I highly recommend!
