Fit Review Friday! Sleet Sprinter Jacket & Gear Up Crop

January 20, 2017

Sorry for the late post today! I've been running around for two days straight. I've got about an hour before I have to go visit my brother / wife and nephew. I would really like to take a nap right about now!

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and I'm usually a size 4 in both tops and bottoms.


Here we have the Sleet Sprinter Jacket. This looked really nice on the hanger but I had suspicions that it wouldn't be very petite friendly. I am trying on my usual size 4 and it was comfortable enough that I could see it being a very nice running jacket. Nothing was too tight and I was able to move my arms freely without any restrictions. 


Side note, yes I got new glasses! I really like them. They're super affordable only $26. They're Foster Grant reading glasses that are very high quality. I took them to my eye doctor to put in new lenses with my regular prescription. They say they're for men's but I don't care, I think they look great on me. 





Back to the jacket, the zipper of the jacket is a little resistant. The zipper is smooth, but I found I used a lot more effort than I normally would to zip it up and down. So, if you're looking for a quick zip, that's not going to happen. I also found the neck funnel to be very stiff when I zipped it all the way up and the zipper garage hit my throat which I didn't like. The length of the jacket definitely covers my bum completely. In fact, I thought it might be a tad too long on my petite frame. However I know I'm on the extreme end of the height spectrum, so if you're even a little taller than me the length is probably fine.


The hood is also removable. 

The fitting room did not have a mirror on both sides so I couldn't get a decent back shot of the jacket but I did like the slight flare from the back. Overall, I think this would make an excellent running jacket for rainy weather since the soft-shell fabric repels rain.



I quickly tried on Wunder Under Shorts in size 6. I went up a size because of how ridiculously small they looked in a size 4, but overall I didn't find these to be very flattering on me, so I'll spare you all. 



Next we have the Gear Up Crop in 17 inches. I'm wearing my usual size 4, but I found the waist to be on the smaller side, so I wouldn't say this is true to size. It pinched my waist and I found it a little too tight for my liking. However it fit perfectly every where else. 


I don't like tight fitting clothes and you can see the waist looks really tight. I didn't find it comfortable to wear. I was very surprised to find the calves fit me perfectly. No baggy ankles here.

There is a mesh panel along with reflective detail on the sides.


These are high rise and these hit my belly button. The luxtreme fabric felt smooth and very compressive. The backside definitely looks awesome in these.

See how perfect these fit my calves? Amazing.


The front also has a X shaped pocket, which is interesting. Not sure how I like it. The design looks cool, but I have yet find out if it functions well as a pocket. The back of the crops also has another pocket for keys and cards. Personally I do not like compressive clothing but if you do, these may be for you.
