I love this jacket! Only complaint, I am 5'10" and the thumb hole does begin to hurt after awhile because of my long arms. But this jacket is cute and fits well and decently warm!

Excellent quality, and of course utility. Took it on a 4-day hike in high heat and humidity in the Georgia hills, and it was outstanding. Got a few "looks" of course, but I think more guys would wear one were it not for ego or some such superfluous reason.

Potrero™ Parka

This is a lightweight, stylish parka that fit me perfectly (I'm 5' 6" and slender) and felt really good on. It looked just like the picture, and I really wanted to keep it, but I don't think it would keep me warm enough. It has only polyester fill, not down. I get cold really easily -- I am layering up and wearing a hat when other women are still comfy in just a sweater or a light jacket -- and winters here in New England are very, very cold and snowy. So I opted for a down parka instead. It's not as stylish as this one, but I have more confidence that it will keep me warm and dry when the inevitable winter storms hit, and that's my top priority. I think this jacket would be a good choice for someone who "runs hot" and doesn't feel the cold the way I do, or someone who lives in a climate where the winters aren't as harsh as they are up here in New England. It would also be a good alternative to a heavier parka if you wanted to own two winter parkas and wear this one on warmer days. But at this price, I can't afford that luxury, so, with regret, I'm returning it.

I am a fleece fanatic and I love the looks of this jacket. Much more stylish than most fleece. However, it is not heavy enough for the Montana winters and is not really close fitting enough for layering under another jacket. I am returning it and will try other makes and styles.

Plasmic™ Parka

May need to order a size up for layering. I wanted a longer rain shell for hiking, to keep my butt and top of my legs dry, and this one has a two way zipper, a must for climbing hills, even driving. The Plasmic got good reviews on other sites, so I ordered it in a medium. Although the med fit well (meaning it looked great with just a t-shirt on underneath) it was too snug in the bust and shoulders when I layered a fleece underneath, so I ordered a large. (I'm 5'6", 125 lbs, 36B bust, wear size 6-8 shirt and pants.) The large is big, but I can throw it over layers on the trail and/or a work suit jacket and not feel restricted. Drawstring on the bottom helps keep it from looking sloppy. Overall, rather expensive but a nice jacket, will wait to see if it lives up the positive feedback I read about the waterproofing.

Nice stretchy fabric. I usually wear size 6 and with many brands have a huge gap at the waist. Not so with these pants. I bought size 6 and they fit really well. You can wear them hiking, around town or even to work on a casual day. Definitely recommend. The only negative thing is that the internal pocket fabric shows through the main fabric on the thighs.

These are very comfortable pants. I don't love the styling on the pockets, but the pants are so light and fluid, I don't notice them. If you're into pants that can go anywhere and look half-way okay, and feel like pajamas too. These are awesome. Also, I spilled tons of stuff on them. They came with a great resilience to liquids and have not stained yet, when I am pretty sure others would have.

Um, yeah. I love this kilt. I've never had a kilt. And this was my first. And I love her. Hiking in shorts will never happen again. I have so much freedom from chafing and so much more range of motion, it really isn't a joke. Don't waste your money on $200 kilts that you're afraid of ripping or staining on a trip. This one made baby deer run up to me. I had to buy a badminton racket to fight off all of the bluebirds that insisted on being friends. I can't decide if I'm Scottish or Irish. People keep asking. But honestly, get this kilt. The only problem I have with it, is that if you don't wear anything underneath, the button backs on the waist tend to bite into your skin. Other than that, it's an amazing first or tenth kilt. I just wish they offered it in olive drab.

Slim fit, and true to size. I like the vibrant cobalt blue, high neck, and thumb holes. Will use it as a layer under a shell and for fall weather, in the 50s.

Fantastic shirt, my husband's favorite. He refuses to wear a tie anymore and he wore this shirt to my son's garden wedding. Perfect. Comfortable and stylish.

Interesting idea. Very easy to hook and unhook. The belt twists once it's on and you're hiking, walking, skateboarding, any activity. So the profile goes from full width to a slim cord. Not very comfortable. I don't recommend this.

Zenell™ Trench Coat

Reviewer: Jennifer Rodgers from Salt Lake City, Utah
Overall: Rated:3 stars! Comfort: Rated:3 stars! Style: Rated:3 stars!

The material is almost waxy, which I liked. It'd help resist the weather, and in Salt Lake City where the snow is dry, it'd work fine for the winter too. And who doesn't love thumb holes. However, the fit was horrible. I wondered why the model is wearing an XS with a 36C chest (I have trouble in the area for the same reason). Now I understand. I ordered a medium in cigar and the bottom half fit me like a sail. The Pockets are not flattering, it was just huge. As my roommate said, the back is attractive; the buttons and drawstrings are nice accents. But there was just no hope for this piece. The search continues.

I really like this belt...easy to use and lightweight. However, was looking for a belt to wear under long, close fitting shirts and the end of the belt is folded over about an inch on the outside creating a bulge (which is slightly annoying). Wish it had been folded inside so it wouldn't show.

I'm 5'2, 120 lbs, broad shouldered, but straight frame and I'm normally an XS in most brands but I am planning to get an S in this. The XS came and it's tight, and I wouldn't be able to fit a thin long sleeve underneath this.

This is a nice hat; however, it looks really funny on my son as this large size is not quite large enough. I will have to give him a really short hair cut to just keep the hat on his head. That said, it is a very nice hat and we will be keeping it. I wish there were XXL sizes available (which I thought I had ordered since that is what I put in the search parameters!).

It's all about the buckle! I'm always on the lookout for belts that have a low profile buckle. Since I choose function over fashion, and typically wear my shits un-tucked, it's nice not to have a big bulge near my belly. This belt is about as perfect as I've ever found. It's beautiful in its simplicity. Very easy to use.

What a floppy hat. It's stretchy and soft (thanks, 100% wool!) If you want it to be a bit less floppy, you can fold the band up and over or up and in, and it'll tighten up. I have a large head (I'm the exception to those "one size fits all" hats), so I got this in Large: it fits great. I'm excited to take this backpacking this weekend.

Keep the head cool when I play tennis. It's a little deep (I feel like I want to tuck my ears in to the side so that the hat can be fully pulled over my head). I like it.

These pants are exactly what I wanted in length and fabric. However there are these big jodphur things sticking out from below my hips to mid thigh. What the what!

I was looking for some cool weather hiking pants and really like the heavier weight & stretchy fabric, and thank you for offering different lengths! However, I have straight hips and these bulge out in the upper thighs for me, so they are going back.
