Marmot makes the best fleece jackets and tops (to me anyway). Warm, soft fleece. Not too thick, not too thin. The flashpoint jackets are more on the fitted side, which I love. They don't look big and bulky. If you want to put heavy layers underneath, then size up. Marmot sizing is on the small side anyway, as they say an XS is 4-6 but it really is a 0-2 if you ask me). I am 5'4 115lb and prefer to buy Marmot in SM if that helps. I typically buy Size 4 or SM. This jacket is straight cut and fits close at the bottom too, to keep air out. There is also an elastic toggle at the bottom (hidden in seam) to allow you to tighten or loosen at the bottom. Thumbholes are awesome feature too. LOVE LOVE LOVE this jacket. Seriously great price too

I have several of these tops. They are my absolute favorite cold weather top! Soft, warm, looks great on, fitted not baggy looking. Marmot quality is superior. Thick, warm fleece and very comfortable. Sizing is odd with Marmot. They say XS is a 4-6 and a Small is a 6-8. I normally wear a size S, XS or size 4 petite. Never a 6-8 but in this top, the Small (6-8) fits better. The shoulders on the XS are just a little too tight for my liking. I am 5'4" 115 lbs. If you have small shoulders the XS should work for you but I guess my shoulders are a little broad. Great Great top!
