I read the previous reviews about the sleeve length and didn't think it would be a problem because I have long arms. Unfortunately, the design of the sleeve is long and the absence of any cuff or velcro closure to tighten the sleeve at the wrist just makes the LONG sleeve more awkward. I thought about stitching some pleats in it at the wrist but decided just to send it back and hope that it finds a good home with someone with even longer arms than I have!

Dynamite material, vibrant color, hi-tech feel, easy care, comfy -- what's not to like? Answer: Sleeves. My size MED had a nice, trim fit in the torso, but it was as if the seamstress attached sleeves from the XL bin -- they were easily 3" too long & waaay too roomy. Also, the cuffs did not seal around the wrists (again, too big), allowing them to droop over the hands & knuckles and also allowing the wind in. Too bad; this is an otherwise great jacket, but with one fatal flaw. Regrettably returned.

This is the best running jacket that I have ever had. Even used it at 21 degrees with long sleeve base layer and felt fine. It breaths very well. With a light T-shirt, can use this up to about 45 degree at most (while running). Can probably use in higher temps if you are just walking.
Best Uses: running
Cons: Long Arms
Describe Yourself: Casual Dresser
Pros: Attractive Design, Breathable, Comfortable, Good Cut, Lightweight, Warm

The hood is not adjustable as it has no drawstrings. The fit is not too loose but its not really tight either. I've found it to work well with a wool cap. The jacket is not warm enough to wear in Alaska in winter anyway.
