I purchased a medium based on reviews, even though I usually fit a small in OR or Patagonia products. Slightly loose, but not unflattering and a small may have fit like a tight form fitting base layer. This fit is perfect for hot days when a little space between you and the fabric makes it eeezy breezy. The fabric is surprisingly super soft for a linen blend. I just wish they had brighter colors that popped with the spring colors. I would have bought additional shirts if they had brighter colors (not pink).

I probably could've gotten away with a Small, but I worried that it would be too tight. I bought the medium and it's a bit loose, but I figured I could wear it on warmer days when I want my arms covered from the sun. So far, it's been comfy on cooler night hikes.

The merino fabric is on par Icebreaker. So far, so good.

These are my favorite! I wear them working out, under jeans, under skirts and dresses. They don't show lines and are so comfortable. I've had a few pairs for about a year, now. No defects or wear, unlike other brands or even the siren. Just wash as delicates and air dry. Please, put them on sale, again!

I've worn it on 50 degree days and 15 degree nights. Kept me warm sleeping in my bag without a tent cause ours got shredded at the Grand Teton saddle. Easily packed into its pocket for the hike down. Fits fine with a base layer shirt and a long sleeve merino long sleeve underneath.

Cute pair of shorts that aren't the usual cut off jeans or chino type. This pair has been worn on 90+ degree days. It's soft and breathes very well. Comfy scrambling on rocks with it. Just don't expect things to stay in the front pockets. Oh, and the rear pockets are faux. I hate when manufacturers do that. Chicks need pockets, too!

It has good sleeve and body length and fits nicely. It breathes well in warm weather, but the neck is slouchy...like the shirt wants to be a boat neck kinda slouchy. Great for warm weather, but I don't think I'll be using it as a base layer in the cold.

Great fit and feel. Love the look of the straps on the back. Works for casual walks around town and even a fancy outdoor wedding. Comfortable for busting my moves on the dance floor at the reception. I wish I didn't just have the solid black.

I've been disappointed with Patagonia bras and panties the past couple of years. After trying different brands, I decided to go back and try these with the inserts. Wow! It has the same breathability I missed. The inserts are flattering and don't get misshapen in the wash. I can wear them doing anything from the riding, hiking, kickboxing and a night out. Its so comfortable and the cut and inserts keep you looking clean and sexy. What more could you want? Oh, and the violet blue color works with so many other shirts I have. Only bummer is that it sits kinda high when you wear a deep v-neck.

I have a couple of primaloft jackets and love them. I've been wanting to try down cause everyone says its warmer. It was hard to resist the sale price and the vibrant purple color. I've used it a few times. So far, the plumage hasn't found its way out of the fabric, nor does it show through. The fit is perfect ...enough for a heavy base layer with a vest underneath. The hood is effective against cold winds. The only caveat is the upper arms could use a tad more room or stretch. I definitely feel it, but only at near full flex of my biceps. I am by no means a powerlifter, but my arms are on the muscular side. Aside from that, kept me warm in the 40's with a light base layer.

I only run in these due to my knee and back problems. Better than the 3 pairs of Spyridon LS I wore out. I've done mud runs, and run/hike trails with these. I even did the one day ascent/descent of Mt Whitney peak with these...Grand Tetons Saddle... I get no blisters of hot spots and they go through water and dry quickly. Easily thrown in the wash and packs light for travel. Not for beginner minimalist shoe wearers, though.

I've used it on night trail runs. Keeps my head warm without overheating. I like that it fits over my ears and its reversible. Easily fits in my pocket and dries quickly. Got it clearance, can't beat it for a training beanie.

Kara has it all, looks, feel and mobility. It is long, but you can fold it over, let it bunch up or wear boots over it. I can go out to dinner and drinks or hit the trails and these jeans keep me looking good and comfy. I just need the green ones to go on sale!

The denim is a bit thin on the side and it fits kinda weird on the booty, but overall, the fit is fine and comfortable. I'm 5'4" and the bottom just hits the bottom of my ankle bone. The rise is not too low. For my fit, I think the Prana Kara is a more flattering fit, but these are just as comfortable.

It's a tad loose, compared to other small tights, but like a previous reviewer said, fold the waistband over and it's perfect. It's thin, yet perfect for the colder nights out running in SoCal, lately (low 50's). I love the thick cuff at the bottom of the legs, keeps it in place. Cause its a thin merino fabric, it breathes well and dries quickly. I've been throwing on a pair of pants over it before and after my trail runs. My only regret is that I should've bought another pair for under $24.

I've been disappointed with the latest iteration of Patagonia's bikini briefs...elasticity faded much too fast.

I tried these and I was really impressed. Good elasticity, nice cut. Used it camping and it breathes and dries quickly.

These and the black ones will be my staple.
