    The quality is great and the fit very good. I ordered a small and am 5'3 and 120 lbs. The fit is very flattering. It is warm but not bulky. This has already become my go-to jacket.

    Thin, soft, warm and good looking too. I know I'll be throwing this on a lot over everything from running clothes, to yoga. The zipper and the piping are reflective, which is a big plus. I'm 5'2" 110 lbs, and the XS fits well. The sleeves and body aren't as long as some of the other icebreaker products out there-- so the jacket is great for the petite ladies out there!

    This is a great jacket for not just running, but also cool-weather hiking and casual wear. It is flattering, long enough to cover the waistband of low rise jeans, and warm. My new favorite!

    This is a great jacket for being active outdoors (I would use this for running or hiking). It's very warm, especially paired with a merino wool top, without the bulk of other materials. I particularly like that the jacket has plenty of pockets (two zip pockets on the side, a zip pocket in back, and an interior pocket). Enough pockets to hold my smartphone, keys, gloves, etc. The length and ribbed trim in the back is also flattering to the backside. I could do without the white piping, but it's a great jacket overall. I have another IB jacket with a hood and prefer this one without the hood. Size up - is stretchy and fits snug - I wear M in most clothes and got this in L.

    Close-fittine but with plenty of room for a layer or two. It's difficult to run when fighting bulk and I don't do that with this jacket.

    Great Icebreaker quality and fit, but no handwarmer pockets! Granted the thumb loops help keep hands warm, but I like stuffing my paws into pockets before and after runs as well as stash small items there. Other than that, it was a great jacket: nice fit, not too loose, not tight. I'm 5;2" and 105 lbs and ordered the XS. Sadly, I'll be returning this.

    I have worn this both running and on my bike. It runs large enough on me to comfortably fit 1-2 base layers underneath (I am 5'5", around 113 lbs and wear size XS). This jacket plus two base layers has kept me comfortably warm, but not overheated, on my bike in 40 degree overcast weather with a cold north wind. Like other Merino wool garments I have had, this is very odor resistant. I simply hang it up to air it out after I wear it, even if it is damp from perspiration, and I do not anticipate the need to launder until after the cold weather ends. The odor resistance of merino makes it worth the money when compared to synthetics that require regular washing, especially if you prefer to line dry performance clothing as I do.

    I needed a windproof lightweight jacket to run outside and this one fits the bill. It is very comfortable and keeps me warm. I am 5'6" 135lb and the medium fits well.

    This is a great jacket. Beautifully made, quality really shows through. It's intuitively crafted with the athlete in mind. Looks great and the fit is sublime. If you know Merino, you know the unsurpassed benefits of these fibers for workout gear, wicking, breathable, temperature regulating, stink free. It doesn't get any better. The sleeves are plenty long but it could use thumb loops. Looks great for working out or casual wear, so it's very versatile. Glad I have it.
