Not all women who enjoy the outdoors are tall or 5'6" - in fact, most of us are shorter. Petites are becoming non-existent for people 5'4" and smaller which are also purchased by many in the taller range. So what is up REI? You only have one (1) and let me repeat that, "one petite" top that I can find on your site. What is up with the designers and buyers? Nordstrom just removed their petite section altogether along with shoes for adults who wear size 4. Is the world going mad? There are a lot of us Asian, White, and Latino's out there that are shorter by group than others. Do retailers not want our business? Time to start our own company as 'short' is the the next large group being castrated by large companies.
