Wanted to provide some feedback as others have helped me. I'm 5'8", 170 lbs with athletic build, 41" chest, broad shoulders, and short arms (32-33). The Medium fits me perfect. The 4-way stretch helps the fit but is not too tight over a t-shirt and light wool sweater. It feels more like you are lo...

... didn't get around to wearing this soon enough after purchase, other than a 30 second try-on when it first arrived; so it could have been sent back if I'd found it to be about 20% too big and with arms extra long... I could've worn a size M instead and had plenty of room. I do wear it on occasion now, but have no great things to say about it; my go-to jacket in cooler months is a USA-made 'mountain hardware' gore windstop softshell with pit-zips as it is a perfect fit and better made than this Marmot Threshold, and the MH jacket works out great when I'm out shoveling roofs since it has ventilation and the arms aren't too long. The Threshold jacket with too-long arms is always a battle, so the gloves I bought in hope of using with this and the OR jacket that ran large (for L) are still in their packaging, like some of my boots, as-new years later. Deadwood? ...Probably. Bought this Marmot softshell to layer under the unused Precip at about the same time, but they don't really match up. A more costly Marmot was sent back due to design flaws w/o wearing it that may have worked as a layer over this Threshold in real winter conditions... I'd say even for a slight discount at STP, it hasn't been as practical as the MH jacket that only cost me $6.50 and was as-new... can't see where anyone would review a brand new item just out of the box, either. Looks aren't everything.

I HAVE HAD A FEW SOFTSHELL JACKETS IN THE PAST FEW YEARS. THIS ONE IS THE BEST I HAVE OWNED SO FAR. IT FITS WELL, HAS ENOUGH SPACE AND ROOM FOR MOVEMENT AND IS VERY PRACTICAL. IT FEELS ND LOOKS WELL MADE AND COMES IN SOME NICE COLOURS TOO. Sierra has increased their shipping prices by a HUGE amount!!$$ so it costs alot to buy from sierra now. that is a real shame, i wanted to buy more....
Best Uses: Casual Wear, Cold Weather, Hiking and Camping, Skiing/Snowboarding

This is cut for a very thin, athletic build. I usually wear a large in almost every manufacturer, but this is too snug and I will likely return it. Arms are super long, so cyclists may really like it. Strange cut overall.
I think the Marmot Threshold Jacket is exactly what your looking for.

This is one of three softshells that I have, all of which have similar construction. I don't think of them as appropriate for high output aerobic activity in that there is a layer of insulation bonded to the exterior fabric. When I exercise I prefer to have a base layer or two (if cold) with a breathable, uninsulated outer shell. I think these softshells have too much insulation, leading to too much heat build up - but that's just my take.
