My wife is looking for a windshirt and an ultralight rain shell.  Any recommendation on brands/models that might fit someone who is not overly large but has wide hips?  So far it's been looking like a choice between too constraining at the bottom or too baggy at the top.  Thanks!

This has to be coming from a guy that doesn't like Soho. (No hippy chicks;-)

All the windshirts and shells I have fit over my gut so I bet they will fit over the wifey's hips too. Stay away from MontBell (or buy larger) as they are known to run slim. Some of the European brands tend to be slim too.

Maybe a better picture of the hippy chick will lets us evaluate, I mean help you more...

Oh, just noticed this is your first post. Welcome both of you.

My wife has the same problem. She has a Patagonia Houdini for a windshirt but it's kinda tight at the hips.

What ray's saying is, "This post is useless without pictures"!

Maybe check OR (Outdoor Research). There's a goretex jacket in my house with a pronounced hourglass shape, and the 'pit-zips' actually extend right to the hem on the sides, allowing someone to unzip from the bottom for greater range of motion when required.
