Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small

This hat just works for me. I really prefer visor beanies and this one is not only cute, but fits me properly. I just purchased my third and am not sorry. It does not have a ton of stretch so I suppose on a larger head it just won't be comfortable, but I am 5'2 and 110lbs so I have trouble fitting into a lot of adult things, hats included. When I can find something that is a good fit that isn't from the children's section I am usually pretty stoked. So, if you are a somewhat smaller than average woman who often finds most "one-size-fits-all" hats are large than this is a fantastic hat. Warm, good colors, and fairly stylish.

Normally we use the camelbak bottles in our house, but my six year old is a chewer and the bite valves on them do not last with her. I have used the regular nalgene bottles, but being six she does not always pay attention and often will wear a bit of the water from those if she is not careful. This one she can walk and drink her water at the same time, can't really do much damage to it (though, when I washed it I noticed a few teeth marks around the valve, but nothing that hinders its performance). She doesn't really have it laying down or just tossed in her backpack much so we haven't really had the chance to test out some of the leak issues others have had. So far, it works great for her!

I usually wear the reef sandy flip flops because I love the colors and they are really comfortable. I found these however, to be even more so. I do wish there were some better colors to choose from though. Aside from that they are amazing and I feel better supported in these as opposed to traditional "thong" flip flops...

I picked this up in rose (I really like the blue color, but the strange graphic on the bottom does not quite do it for me....). It is very comfortable and looks great. I wear it to work and to work out. Serves many purposes. I will admit though, it did shrink the first time I put it in the dryer so beware if it is a perfect fit on you before washing.

I love these socks. Smartwool is by far my favorite brand. I have never had an issue with quality. I ordered these in the watermelon color which is definitely a pink and not orange like shown above, but they are still great and super comfortable. I am really picky about my socks so I don't mind the price because you get what you pay for with smartwool.

I've owned many pairs of hiking shoes and boots and have been satisfied in the past only by Keen and Asolo brands. While I still love those I just loved the way these shoes looked and thought I might try out a new pair for the new year. I was pleasantly surprised to find out how much I loved these! They size was right on target with my other top brands (women's 6). Bottom line: these look great, feel great, and give me stability.

I ordered this in dark/light thistle, xs. The sleves were a little tight, yet it was oddly loose in the mid section, but fitted again at the waist and neck..... I think being full-zip is what made it even less attractive as the zipper would kind of pop out in the middle area making me look rather unshapely... The color was nice and while the material was super soft it didn't seem like it would hold up very well. I might have considered keeping it if it had not been so expensive, but for this price I expected to be a little more pleased.

The material was great and they would have been cute if they didn't look like I could fit myself in one leg and my daughter in the other. I ordered a size 4 and it seemed more like a 14. Even if the rear and waist had been of adequate size they would have come down to my ankles, which is not attractive or very functional as a capri.

Ok, so I was really excited about this jacket, based on all the wonderful reviews and the fact that people said it was tighter than it used to be. That and I chose the foam green color which looks great online. The jacket, which is more of a tinted white came to me and seemed rather loose. The sleeves were pretty baggy and I felt as though there was a lot more room in it than I would need even if layering. (I'm 5'2", 100lbs and ordered an XS). The material seems great and it does feel cozy so now I am debating keeping it since I got such a great deal from Backcountry.com and using it as a spare, or returning it and getting a children's size in one of the darker greens.... I will have to try it with some layers underneath. Even if it is loose and there's wind I can cinch the waist with the drawstring. I'm beginning to lose faith in TNF products however, and am starting to gear towards Mountain Hardwear since their products seem to fit small frames much better. Perhaps I'm just too small to enjoy TNF which is kind of a bummer.

These "shorts" are so comfortable on me. I'm 5'2 and the size two is more like a higher capri as they come just past my knees. There is a slit of the back of the cuff on the bottom to allow your knees to move freely though so the are still completely functional. I can move very easily in these and they are so very soft even after MANY washes. I wear them bouldering and they have withstood a few slips and since they are long my knees are still covered. I usually wear long pants hiking, but always keep these with me in case it gets too hot. My only complaint is that after being in my pack all day the don't "unwrinkle" really, but by the time I am done and change into them if I didn't before my return the wrinkles don't even matter because they feel like a dream!

I figured I would not have the opportunity to use these until September, but even in the heat they proved to be great! I thought I would end up being pretty warm all day if I wore them in the 80 degree weather hiking. After all the horrible rain and thunder we trekked through I am so glad that I decided to wear these on that day. Not only was I not hot before the rain, my legs were so comfortable even during. They kept me dry, moved freely, and are extremely durable when brushed strongly against or smashed against rock. I think I will wear these a lot more than I had originally intended to. The inseam seemed a little short to me at first even though I'm only 5'2, but it didn't seem to matter much with boots on.

I suppose my thoughts on these pants would have been much different if I could fit into them. Compared to my other TNF pants these seemed huge, but it seems it can be hit or miss on the pant sizing with TNF sometimes. Since the size 2 is way too big on me I can't just exchange for a smaller size. I will say that the material felt great though, if I could fit into these I'm sure I would have loved them :(

The material was great so I wish these had worked out well, but they fit all wrong. I have a pair of Ryn cords size 2 that fit wonderfully. I ordered these in XS and they were way too long and completely huge in the waist/butt/crotch area. I love TNF, but these pants just did not work out for me, hopefully others will have better luck.

I could wear these puppies to bed. The moment I put them on I didn't want to take them off. They are very light weight, comfortable and stylish to boot (or to shoe)! I am very pleased with my purchase and would definitely recommend these to anyone. I feel very well supported and ready to go every time I tie them up for a jaunt up the hill.
