Still scratching my head on sizing
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs large
My son is a tank. Okay...he's a bowling ball but my point is that he is large. He is only 9 months old but he wears 18-month clothing on a day-to-day basis. We had a trip scheduled 3 months from now, so I bought him size 18/24 months, assuming it would work great. Unfortunately, when I put it on him I immediately lost him for about 4 hours.
When I finally found my son again, I ordered a second pair sized 12-18 months thinking that would be perfect. When I put it on him, I lost him again, but this time for only 2 hours.
I've been secretly dosing my wife with human growth hormone in the hopes that her breast milk will give him a growth spurt prior to our trip because while Backcountry makes it easy, I don't want to deal with another exchange.
