Overall a nice fit, seem to stay in place and minimize the mid-life muffin top. I am usually a size 10-12 and ordered a Large, which fit great. Am not too stoked on the "sprinkle" color however.
Okay, so this is why women sometimes don't get the cred we deserve standing in the lineup on Palisades in Squaw. It's because some ditsy girl is going to show up wearing these pants.....the fit, color and material is all fashion and looks with nada for function. If you want to just hang out at the mountain and look good, buy these pants. They really look great on and they feel like a favorite pair of jeans. Waterproof or, I'm dubious to think even water-repellent, they certainly are not. These will get soaked with moisture and very heavy and wet (then they'll bag and you'll look like every other 16-year old boy). The skinny fit? Fine as long as you don't want to actually crouch down, tuck, pull an aggressive turn, put your skis up on edge, or er...actually SKI or SNOWBOARD in these pants.
I liked the breezy-ness of the shirt but I purchased the cream colored one and really, it's just too see-through for wearing anywhere other than at the beach or pool as a cover up. Not what I was looking for, so it's a return.
I loved the retro look of this top and thought it would be a fun tee to wear in the summer with some cutoffs.
The tee itself is fine. Soft cotton, albiet a little on the thin side, and the retro graphic reminded me of my softball shirts from the 80's in High School. The reason why I had to return it was that the shirt has a huge, and I mean immense, neck and head opening. Not only will your bra straps show on both sides, the shirt will move around and my whole shoulder would pop out. Unless you wish to regulate this shirt strictly as a beach/swimsuit coverup, the practicality of actually wearing it in a normally daily setting is nill.
I'm concerned reading the answer advice below for questions about the sizing. Seems every manufacture has their own way of doing it. These DaKine mits are for TODDLERS. The size Large was too small for my (42 pound, 44 inch high) 5-year old daughter. The size Large does fit my 3-year old daughter quite nicely. A 3-year old in this instance, if you think about it, is a large toddler. I realized my 5-year old should be in a youth small or extra-small. Other than sizing issues, these are bomber gloves great for play outside. I reccommend the black color which hides the dirt real well. One more thing, the Backcountry return policy is so awesome, you could buy a variety of sized gloves and return the ones that don't fit. No problem on returns!
