Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 118 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

I love Arcteryx and have a lot of their jackets. So, when I needed some shell pants, tried these along with the Norrana Tamok. I ended up with the Norrana both due to fit, style and versatility. These fit small in the waist, didn’t have the pockets of the Norrana, and the vents are open..not meshed and zips are toward the back of your leg where you sit on the chairlift. I’m 5’5, 115lbs, short waisted, long legs 30”inseam with 24-25” waist, straight figured. So, if I went up in size for the waist, the pants would have been huge everywhere else. .Norrana had better adjustment in the waist...tighter or looser, vents are meshed and on inside of leg as well as outside, pockets are strategically placed perfectly, and well..their Norrana.

Wanted a nice base layer that I used for skiing in 30ish degree weather (I ski hot). This is perfect weight and fit. Got a medium: I'm 5'5, 114ish, broad shoulders, 30DD, long arms, straight from chest down. It was slim but still had enough room for gaining a couple of pounds, and looked great with my Norrana Tamock Pants :)

So, was using the Smith Sol Green O/I and couldn't see much last year. Decided to upgrade to this cuties. I have a small/medium face/head with high cheek bones (which pop out when smiling :)) and these fit perfectly w/o the goggles moving up and when I smiled. AND WOW..what a difference from my old goggles. Better perpherial vision, visual clarity is outstanding, no fogging (remember never wipe the inside of your goggles as you'll wipe off the anti-fog), fit my Smith helmet perfectly w/o any gaps, AND most importantly...their so cool looking :) I got the Blue Sapphire Prism for Blue Bird days that worked great even when the sun was setting, and Hi Pink for cloudy, snowy days. Both were amazing. So, if looking for some new goggles...GET THESE

OMG...best ski pants ever

Fit: True to size

I was looking for a good shell pant that would fit my long legs, short waisted, straight figure, no butt/hip body. This was a perfect fit with the adjustable waist. Had it on almost tightest waist setting with lots of room for my tummy to grow and adjust the waist :). Fit my slim hips/butt nicely. I got a small (I'm 5'5, 114ish with 30" inseam). I ski hot and these worked great with light base layer in 30ish Degrees with 30-50 mile gusts, and in blizzard like conditions. Didn't feel the cold or wind. Also, used them for snowshoeing in 5 feet of snow (when feel down :)) and again, didn't feel the cold, dampness or snow (under it got under my jacket gaiter...LOL). These would work even if you're a bit curvy because there was extra material in the butt on mine. Pockets are perfect and love the mess vents.

Yes, these are expensive, but worth every pennny as they'll be kicking for decades. Beside, their cute as all get out :)

Oh, did try out the Arcteryx Senntiel pants, but the waist was too small and didn't like the vents being open and not messed.

Wanted a nice base layer that would good to wear under my suit for court. This is perfect weight and fit. Got a medium: I'm 5'5, 114ish, broad shoulders, 30DD, long arms, straight from chest down. It was slim but still had enough room for gaining a couple of pounds. Not baggy.

I wear medium in Icebreaker base layers which I love. They are slim w/o being restrictive, long enough in arms, roomy enough in shoulders and chest. Got a medium in this hoodie and it was too tight under the arms. I'm 5'5, 114lbs, 30DD chest, short waisted and long arms. Didn't work for me.

I have another pair of feedbacks in the prizm sapphire polarized, which I love. Wanted another pair that would be good for sun/cloud days..varied conditions, and got the Polished Black/Prizm Daily Polarized, The Daily are perfect for what I was looking for. And, yes, girls, the nose pad doesn't stick in your hair. I have curly long hair and haven't had a problem. The other nice thing is that don't stretch out when putting them up on your head (at least not yet :) ). The vision clarity is exceptional. I have Native and Smith sunglasses, and these are my favorites.

The shirt is super soft and a relaxed fit around the waist/hips with more fits in the chest/shoulders/arms. I really like it, but the chest pocket lays weird. I'm 5'5 118lbs, 30E chest, broad shoulders with straight figure below chest. Love it, but hate the pocket which is a deal breaker for me.

I have 2 other Dakine roller bags: over under 49L + and the 85L. Unlike the others, this one's interior (non-zip area) is not tight/streamline fit. So, there is some bagging in the compartment that has the compression straps. Not my favorite style, but otherwise the bag seems great. Good size overhead for a long weekend. With lots of room in the expanded/unexpanded area. Nice front pockets...one with the laptop padded area and another without. Great 900D outer material (I got the Carbon). Will be using it this wkd so, will update my review for post usage :)

UPDATE: Amazing. Fits enough for 4-6 days with several pairs of shoes, jeans, shorts, shirts, toliette and more. No problem with putting into overhead bin.

I'm 5'5, 118 lbs, 30E chest, broad shoulders, small hips/waist, short waisted with long leg. It is super light weight for running, but the small was a bit too small. The top is more fitted than I thought. I prefer my running tops to be semi-fitted. Length was good with a wee bit a flare on the hip area, but not so much that you'd have a bell effect (if you're straight figured like me).

I've been looking for some running shorts that would be good for my body type: 5'5, 117lbs, short waisted, long legs and straight figured from waist down. I wanted the brief/liner with the wide waist band and drawstring...and most importantly had major wicking power. These meet all of those desires. Super lightweight, fit my butt/hips to perfectly. The waist is a tad big, but the drawstring takes care of that. :) Like many of you, I went through sticker price shock. But, I have a bunch of Arcteryx gear and know that their stuff rocks. So, gave these a try and glad that I did...

Comfy, but best for curvy girls

Fit: Runs large

I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review Is my personal opinion. I'm 5'5, 118lbs, 25" waist, no hips/butt, long legs and short waisted. I ordered a medium and should have gotten a small. Regardless, the Toad & Co Chaka skirt would be better from curvy girls b/c of the fit. The length is just at the knee or slight below - depending on your height with great detail on the wide waistband - bunches on the sides, but not so much that it looks weird or fits odd. This Toad & Co. skirt, like all of their products, is very well made, super comfy and soft. The Chaka skirt can be dress up or down depending on the top, shoes and accessories so, it can be worn at work, bopping around town, or going to a party. It packs well and could be great to take on a trip or hiking if you wanted to be stylin :). Toad & Co. Chaka skirt is great additon to any girl who is looking for a skirt that flows as she moves, is light it weight, durable and versatile.

I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review Is my personal opinion: I'm 5'5, 30E chest, broad shoulders, 25" waist, short waisted, long legs and no hips/butts. The Toad Muse dress fit on top, but was too loose around the waist/hips and butt. If you're more curvy on the bottom, this dress would be perfect for you. So, very comfy and cute with the hip pocket for storing your photo and the drawstring on the other hip for beautiful flow and detail. The Toad Muse Dress would be good for bopping around town, BBQ, or just relaxing at home. You can dress it up or down depending on shoes and accessories. I got the black in size medium...could have got a small whcih would have fit better.

I have been looking for white shorts that fit, are comfy and aren't see through...Prana Tess are it. I'm 5'5 118lbs, no hips/butt, short waisted and long legs. Love the shorts b/c they check all my boxes :). As par Prana, their Tess shorts run a bit big and stretch so, size down. Also, they are great for any shape b/c they stretch...straight or curvy figure, either will love these shorts. Also, forgot to mention that they are a relaxed fit. So, looser than Prana Hallena short - which I consider to be more fitted. So, go buy these Prana Tess shorts..you won't regret it.

I'm 5'5, 117lbs, short waisted, long legs, straight figure. These fit perfectly. You can roll them up for a shorter length. Very verstaille to wear around town or hiking..though pockets not so good to put stuff into. Think this one is more for straight figure vs curvy.

I'm 5'5, 117lbs, short waisted, long leg and straight figured - no hips or butt with 25" waist. These give me a nice little butt boop. Super comfy. A bit of stretch just so they move with you, but not too much. The weight is medium for shorts. The only thing I don't like is the mesh front pockets, but easily resolved by using the back. And, besides, keeps me from putting my hands in my pockets :) These shorts would be good for straight and slightly curvy girls. Legs might be a bit tight for those with ski thighs
