Comfortable shorts, a bit on the light side. Fits to size.
Got the longer ones. Ends just above the knee and took some getting
use to because most of my shorts end on or over the knee.Still love them.

Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 0"
Weight: 102 lbs
Size Purchased: 4

I bought this for my wife, and these are her thoughts. I am 5’0, 102 lbs, and usually a size 2. I have several Mammut pants and shorts, and the size 4 fits me perfectly. The the fabric of the Massone shorts are nice and stretchy, the fit is good, and the color nice - the black is actually like a charcoal color. However, the legs have a slight flare, which is not flattering on me, and the tabs for adjusting the length hang down below the hem and look weird. And the pockets are too shallow to be of use. Too many negatives, so I returned them.

It's been awhile since I've worn a Misty harness. Still great.
Very comfortable. I like the hardware, they are a bit larger
than other harness brands. Leg loops are comfortable and like
the material. Alittle bit concerned about the gear loop stitching, but we'll
see how much abuse it will take.

This is my third pair. Had my previous shoes resoled before the
"last" got too damaged. Love the shoes for the price and fit. I can usually
wear them all day doing trad,sport or bouldering. This third pair seems
a titch tighter than the previous two when bought new. Still love them.

Love these glasses. and I wear them all the time now.
I thought the green exterior would be brighter, but I can
live with it. I'm use to glasses a little more form fitting, so
I had to get use to reflective light coming in from the sides.
I'm really happy they recycled fishing nets to make the frames
and I like the natural finish of the plastic.

I bought this for my wife, and these are her thoughts. I have several of these popcorn cable socks. They are very thick and warm with great color combinations. However, even though I always wear the socks with slippers or shoes (no stockinged feet), the heels always wear out much faster than the rest of the sock - which remain in pristine condition. I can’t bring myself to throw out socks with just a hole in the heel, and am accumulating quite a few in the rag bag. I wish SmartWool could recycle these or reinforce the heel somehow.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought this for my wife, and these are her thoughts. I am 5’0, 104 lbs, with women’s size 6 feet and I bought a size S/Short. These are my first waders and I have not used them in the field yet. However, my first impressions are that with the adjustable suspender straps and belt, these waders could easily fit a variety of heights and sizes. The S/Short leg length works for me and although the feet are a little big, overall, I am happy with the fit - much better than expected.

I bought this for my wife, and these are her thoughts. I have the Tor Summit Mid hiking boots in size 6 and they are my favorite boots for both backpacking and climbing approaches. I wanted to buy a second pair, but found they are discontinued. Looking for a replacement, I tried the Tor Ultra Hi in size 6, but these have a larger fit, and Backcountry does not sell size 5.5.

I bought this for my wife, and these are her thoughts. I have a small face, and these goggles were too tall, and the ski helmet pushed the goggles down my nose. The Giro Lusi has a slightly smaller fit. That being said, the goggles have a great field of view and the straps are super easy to adjust.

Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 0"
Weight: 104 lbs
Size Purchased: XXS

I bought this for my wife, and these are her thoughts. I am 5’0, 104 lbs, and the XXS are the perfect length, but are a little too tight in the hips, and hard to put on. There seems to be some variability in the sizing, because I tried on the same sized Hampi pants in a different color, and those fit perfectly. The Tasmanian Teal is a very pretty blue-green color and the fabric is soft and light weight. 4 stars for size variability.

I bought these for colder weather because I enjoyed the non-flannel pants. The heavier cotton is nice , takes abuse and I liked the looseness for climbing.Flannel adds extra warmth for winter. I'm disappointed that the non-flannel pants have changed somewhat in the last year and do not fit the same.
While, these same sized flannel lined pants fit much better, and closer to the
previous pants. I wonder about quality control.

I bought another pair because I liked the first ones. The heavier cotton is nice and still takes abuse and I liked the looseness for climbing. But what happened?
I got the same size and everything fits fine except for an unsightly fold in the
crotch area. I also bought the same pants with flannel for winter and they fit better. Major difference between 2017 and 2018.What happened to quality control?
