Although I read all these reviews of clothing, they really don't apply much to me right now because it seems all the outdoor clothing manufacturers make women's clothes to fit very petite women. I am not petite and I have a very hard time finding outdoor clothing that fits my shape (i.e., I have hips, a stomach, etc. - all those things that, apparently, outdoorswomen aren't supposed to have). Most manufacturers make women's clothing up to size 14 and maybe 16; very few make them beyond that size range (or, at least, I haven't found them yet), and yet when I look at the size range for men, it seems that men can be bigger and still find clothes to fit, unlike women.
I will be the first to admit that I need to lose weight and am working on that. In the meantime, though, it's difficult to find good outdoor clothing to fit. I'm sure I'm not the only amply-proportioned outdoorswomen out there, though.
Ah well. It's on to the elliptical trainer for me! I just joined a local fitness club, found a couple of coworkers who also want to workout and am on my way to getting in shape for my trip this summer to Isle Royale!
