The product is for broad shouldered (or for those wearing a thick sweater) but with average length arms. I tried the 2xl and the arm length was good (36-37 probably), but at the cost of having the shoulder seams hanging far off my shoulders. That means the XL would likely fit my upper body, but be too short in the arms. If you like the fit of Marmot or MH, then this jacket is not for you.
The inside material is soft, but the outside is definitely a rough acrylic. Aside from the awkward fit for my body shape, I wasn't sure when I would ever reach for this jacket over the otgher jackets I own. So back this jacket goes, thanks to STP for the great return policy.

I bought this jacket sort of expecting to send it back due to the hood issue I read in another review. But when I received the jacket I totally loved it. It is so light and warm and it looks great! If you throw the hood on without zipping up the jacket it does look a little weird (cone head like the other reviewer said) but as soon as you zip the jacket up the hood looks normal. It's a perfect mid layer jacket and holds up well on its own too. Love the color as well!

A friend returned from Iceland this year with 66 North apparel and loved it so I thought I would give it a try. Just spent several hours outside during a cold evening concert. Given the bulk, or lack thereof, in this jacket it was amazingly warm. Clever design with the pockets (deep enough to easily hold a gloved hand) and the zippers and construction of piece seem to be strong and well manufactured. The chest pocket is too small for a smart phone though. All and all a great outer layer for the cold season(s).
