Compared to the Real Fleece 260 weight jackets which I also own one of, this jacket, although also 260 weight is thinner and less warm. I would consider it a lightweight jacket and only keeps me warm if I layer my microweight smartwool top underneath. That said, I seem to often feel colder than others :) Smartwool seems to contain less wool these days and this is 100% wool so if you don't want bulk, this may be perfect for you. I am 113lbs, 35 chest, 28 waist and got the medium. Normally i get small and have noted the reviews of icebreaker running smaller. I must say, all around, the icebreaker brand seems pretty reliable quality-wise. Oh, this is very un-itchy. It is something about the way it is knit I think.
