I love this hat. It's lightweight, has SPF protection, wicks sweat, and dries quickly. It is very comfortable and can take a beating. No matter how dirty I've gotten it, I can always wash it clean in the washing machine.

The shirt is okay. Not sure if I like the extra material on the back of the neck as it takes away some comfort. Not the end of the world but I have other shirts which are more comfortable simply because they don't have that stitched in material which butts up against the neck. Neck hole is also rather small.

This is very cheaply made - the pull on the neck strap is material and will not stand up over time I'm thinking. I'm returning this. The large is very small...more like a medium.

Pros: - true to size (but a wee smaller than other brands) - I'm a size 2-4, 5'6", 115 lbs, 32D. The XS vests in other brands fits me perfectly, but this one is a little snug across the chest. - soft "fur" exterior is warm for its weight - exterior zipped pockets, interior pockets large enough and securely hold an iPhone 7+ - hood doesn't look completely unflattering when up like a lot of hoods - gives you a waist when zipped Cons: - material doesn't have a lot of structure, so I found it all wants to slide/gather along the outside of my body (when unzipped), which makes it unflattering. This reduced a lot of style points for me!

I like the material of this short. It is lightweight, and soft. The waist band has a bit of give. The rolled up hem is stitched so it cannot be unrolled. I wish this short was about 1" longer, but that is personal preference.

I have been looking at this jacket since the spring - I have been on a navy & blue kick for the past 2 years instead of always going with black for outerwear, pants, boots, and sneaker kicks. Based on the somewhat negative reviews about the fit being tight in the arms, I ordered a size medium, I can wear small in most other fitted jackets & coats.: I am 5'4" 132lbs and naturally broad shouldered - and I could not be HAPPIER with the slim fit of this jacket and the beautiful color. I cannot wait to wear this snappy piece this fall!

I love this hat! It's good-looking, the materials and construction are great, and the fit is perfect. The brim is appropriately wide on the front, back and sides, but it doesn't obstruct my view when driving as some other sunhats have. The chin strap means I can move from outdoors to indoors and back outdoors without taking it off completely. I just let the hat drape across the back of my neck when indoors, then move it back to my head when going outdoors. The only very minor complaint I have is that the toggle on the chin strap is a tiny bit loose, so if you need a hat to wear when driving in a convertible, this probably wouldn't work for you. Otherwise it's fantastic.

Overall: Rated: 5 stars! Comfort: Rated:5 stars! Style: Rated:5 stars!

These shorts are excellent. I'm usually a size 0 or 25 in jeans and chose a size 2 based on the model's size in the photos. I have slim thighs and very little booty so these shorts fit well for me. They are nice and snug and the legs don't creep upwards when I walk. The waist is higher than anticipated but that's not a deal breaker. The material is soft and stretchy and the color is a lovely purple-wine. I was worried they would be too long but the length is actually perfect for walking and hiking. Purchasing another pair in the mushroom color!

Very well made hat for the price! Fit was perfect with a fitted band inside the brim. I love the style, but went with something a bit dressier.

Outdoor Research Sombriolet Sun Hat. I ordered this in Sand Medium, because it was the only color in that size. The hat arrived well-packed. I put it on my head and it was so light I didn't know it was there! This is one thing I really like about this hat -- how light it feels. Tight hats give me a headache. I like wearing this hat. It is so comfortable. I wear it everyday in the hot sun of Austin, TX. It is a perfect hat for protecting face and neck. I am a woman, 5’ tall, and the medium is a perfect size for me. I haven’t had problems with it feeling too hot, which I did with my previous hat. I like that the hat is washable. Great hat. Great design. It will travel with me!

Very comfortable, perfect for the 94 degree days of my Disney World vacation. Wore it in the pool too! Great sun protection for my pale, sensitive skin and eyes. It looked cute on too!

Fit is true to size. Nothing cool about the looks, but it vents well. Works great for being outdoors and cramming it in your pack.

These gaiters were a great savings buying through Zappos. The quality seems excellent however, I bought them to use as backup on a trek, or at least trail-walkers, but that never happened. I affixed the very small velcro strip to my shoes and one didn't hold. Haven't gotten to use them due to this malfunctioning that was rather inconvenient. An extra set of velcro might have helped. Otherwise, seemed good.

The material is very soft and comfortable to wear. The only issue is that the gusset is too far back so you see it from the back. So weird. It does show that in the picture however I thought maybe if you are bootylicious it wouldn't show. I was wrong. I will be returning. I'm disappointed because the material is so nice. For reference I am 5'7...154lbs....athletic build...I ordered a small...true to size.

Just received this hat in white. I purchased it to wear on my next trip to Hawaii, where as a skin cancer survivor wearing a good sun hat is a must for me. I like that it's adjustable and the brim, while giving good shade to my neck and face, isn't huge. The chin strap is another must for me with trade winds, so that also was a huge consideration when picking a new hat. This hat is quite cool and comfortable and I'd certainly recommend it!

Perfect Shorts in Every Way! I have looked high and low for non-cargo hiking and outdoor shorts with deep pockets in a supplex type of fabric. I tried Columbia, Kuhl (run small and no longer make Anika), Lucy, North Face, Patagonia and none of those worked for me. These fit perfectly, great fabric that dries quickly, perfect length a couple of inches above m knees and wonderful functional pockets. I love the zipper thigh pocket and the hand pockets and nice and deep. I have now bought 4 pairs of these shorts! And, I love Zappos and their quick shipping and easy returns. Zappos is the only place online that I shop for shoes and clothing.

This is a great, simple hat for sun protection. I like the chin strap and the feature that adjusts the size to fit more tightly around the child's head. Fits my 3 year old with a larger than average size head well. Lightweight and nice looking.

This hat is great. There's a chin strap for windy days and a toggle pull to make the hat a bit tighter if needed. It also came in a size big enough for my head. Overall, it's a nice hat and looks pretty good, too.
