Purchased these for our 30-something sons, who have had similar Lowe Alpine apparel in the past. As before, these tend to run "small". We ordered an XL for our son who is normally an "L", and a size up for our other son as well -- both fit great. Were the sizing "normal", we would rate 5 stars!

I had high expectations for this jacket. I was hoping to replace my North Face Sentinel Windstopper with this jacket cause it was much cheaper. Unfortunately, it has a VERY poor fit. It fits nice in the chest and sleeves, but the middle is bulky and dispropotioned. The collar also seems a bit too large. The jacket is also much heavier than I imagined it would be. I will be returning this item. For some people this may be the right jacket, but I found the North Face Windstopper to be a much superior jacket with a better fit. I am 6'4" and 220#. I ordered the XL. Barn burner deal at $65.

Many others complained that the sleeves are too tight, while I tend to agree, I think the jacket was built for the athletic fit. If you like to layer, consider going up a size, but with the thick fleece lining I don't bother with more than a long sleeve t-shirt when the temps are between 30 - 45.
