It took me a while to learn how to fit the warm ups and cool downs in to my time. But let me tell you, on days I don't do it I definitely can tell the difference. I bought this after hearing people say I need to have a cool down regimen after working out. Which I kinda thought, I barely have time to workout how do I fit this in? ? But they were right! More specifically for me after a bike ride, my upper back and shoulders are sore and this just feels soooooo good! I use also after a workout at the gym when I do upper body.
I sized up to a large because my body is a little disproportionate so the top is a little big, which might be an issue in the ocean but the bottom fits perfectly! ! I am 5’ 6” and around 145 lbs (a lot of muscle! ) the back is the perfect amount of cheeky. I also love the color, hopefully it’ll look better when I’m a little tanner. I personally liked the idea of sizing up, but that’s just me!. I LOVE this bathing suit.
Detachable hood: check. Seriously I love this. Built in spandex gloves things to keep snow out of sleeves: check! Non slip belt thing to keep the coat from riding up: check! Plenty of pockets: check! Warm: probably it’s not very cold yet today and last night it was 60 degrees but we will see later this week!. I live in TN so honestly not much need for a ski coat, but with all this crazy winter weather I wanted one and this is the one to buy.
I was a bit against the zipper given that it runs the full length of the bag but it does provide easy access to all parts of the pack when needed. Please be mindful that this pack is on the larger side so I wouldn't necessarily consider it for normal day to day wear unless you have to carry a lot of things on a regular basis. Great Pack it definitely holds a large amount of stuff.
Son came to visit her and wanted it so obviously this is one great backpack. Purchased this as a birthday gift for my daughter at her request. "awesome" and she's seldom uses that word for anything. She had one word for it when it came in.
