I am a size 2 in Prana and was excited to try these. The 2 fit well in the waist and hips, but at 5'10" the pant cuffs were uncomfortably cinched around the widest part of my calves (and I have scrawny legs). Would make a great climbing/travel/hiking pant for shorter gals.

. I love the style and fabric of this shirt, but it was just enormous. I am a standard small in most brands but this shirt is cut so generously you could see both my bra straps and when I leaned over, you can see down the bust to all of my stomach. I might try an XS, but for right now, the small goes back.

I've given this product 5 stars even though I'm returning without having used it. At 5'10" I have a hard time finding ski pants/bibs that are long enough and fit my needs (ventilation, pockets, flexibility). I currently use the TNF freethinker bib from last season, but find the inner thigh vents to be insufficient for hike to terrain or skinning. These foxy bibs absolutely crush the ventilation requirement. They are also surprisingly long... maybe just maybe I can get away with them (still on the short side, but not full blown flooders yet). I ordered a size small but found them very tight on my rear and will be trying a size medium next. Since these are non-insulated pants, I'm concerned I will need a little bit of extra room in case I need to wear a thicker expedition weight base layer on cold days. Other than my sizing drama, I'm super amped about this bib option.

I had hoped this would be a good alternative for my TNF Denali fleece, which I wear to climb and hike. Unfortunately, I found that this Penfield fleece did not suit me. I found the proportions to be off for my frame, the arms were a bit short, and while I expected a boxy cut (like the Denali fleece) this one was somehow less flattering. Most importantly, this fleece is heavy and would not pack well. I don't know if it's the hardware, the liner, or the overall fleece fabric, but I found this jacket to be much too dense for me. I couldn't imagine trying to climb in it. For someone who doesn't need to worry about bulk or weight, (e.g. walking the dog, hiking straight from home) this might be a good option.

As a typical size small in women's clothes, I usually find men's size small to be just right for outer layers. These pants run exceptionally small. I could barely get them on in a size small. If I were to re-order I'd probably jump straight to a size L. Other than that, these pants look pretty darn awesome. The stretch is fantastic and look like exactly what I want for bagging technical 14ers and single day mountaineering trips in the Cascades.

I purchased these before there were reviews, and I wish I had waited so I could have found out that the fingers were divided before purchasing. The leather on these gloves is gorgeous, soft, and supple, I've been very careful with my ski edges and they seem to be doing ok, though I do expect they will get sliced at some point. The catch for me is the divided fingers: essentially this is a fleece glove with a thin leather mitt on top. The leather provides some wind and snow protection, but doesn't add much in terms of insulation. I would have preferred a mitt liner for the skin on skin warmth benefits. That said, these gloves are super stylin' and they will be a staple for warmer ski days.

Best. Jacket. Ever

I have had this jacket 2 years now and am considering purchasing a backup, just because I love it so much. I have used this both as a midlayer and as an outerlayer on blue bird days. I'm tall at 5'10" and the sleeve length is perfect for me. The thumbholes are great for layering up, and the chest pocket is large enough for an iphone and some shot blocks.

As a midlayer, this jacket is unbeatable. The insulation is strategically placed on the front/back torso and the top of the arms. Along the underarms and ribs there is high quality fleece, which gives you the perfect combination of warmth and breathability. On cold days I ski in this and a shell and feel great.

As an outer layer this jacket also does well. It has some light water repellancy, and dries fairly quickly, but is most certainly not waterproof, and will water log quickly in a downpour. It offers some protection from wind, but of course, is not a windproof shell.

All in all, this is my go to jacket for all adventures.

I was super excited about these gaiters. I purchased back in May for a Denali trip that fell through, and just got to use them recently. While the zip close presents a challenge for gloved hands, the overall design of these gaiters is pretty good. The elastic at the top keeps them in place and even post holing every other step didn't knock them out of place. The waterproofing was excellent, and my feet were nice and dry at the end of the day. HOWEVER, the underboot strap is NOT stitched to the gaiter. They use a bracket on one side and a pull through closure on the other side (see photos). Both of these systems failed on me multiple times. This is especially frustrating given the importance of the underboot strap and the difficulty of reattaching when you have crampons on. I really have to wonder what Norrona was thinking when they designed this.

Does anyone know the main differences between the women's and the men's TST? I demo skied the TST men's and really liked it so I'm debating whether I get the women's version or stick with the men's ski that I tried. For reference I'm 5'10" and 125 lbs and a type 3+ skier. (was planning on purchasing the 174 legnth) THANKS!

This is a great light weight fleece. Basically this jacket is thinner than The North Face TKA 100 fleece but equally as warm and super stylish. I am tall and this jacket is a bit longer in the sleeves and torso than other brands which means it is perfect for me.This is a fantastic fleece which I will use for summer hikes and as a mid layer under my ski shell this winter. I got bored with the TNF and Patagonia fleeces so Norrona is a stand out alternative that all of my friends will be envious of.I'm 5'10" and 125 lbs, I got a small which is the same size I get in other brands and it fits great.
