Light soft shell.

Sizing information:I purchased an XL, my size is just over 6' tall, 190lbs, 42" chest, 34" waist.

Since I intend to use the jacket for biking or hiking in cool (30-60 degrees F) weather, on top of a base layer and a shirt or two, I sized up.

My cuff length is 34, and the sleeves are a extend down to the knuckles, so they're long, which can be helpful to cover your hands at times.

The way the jacket is cut, I can tell that a large would have worked, but it would be snug if worn over underlayers.

The jacket got it's first test in a heavy, wet snow, and I remained dry and warm in 35 degree weather. The only reason this wan't a 5 star review is the lack of pit zips to remove more moisture during heavy exertion.

The "Amazon" color is a bright green (for higher visibility while biking), but not fluorescent, so it still can be worn in casual situations without making you look like a human highlighter.

A good jacket to protect you from wet, cool weather, just as it was designed to do. I appreciate the fact that the collar doesn't stand up all the time, it can be folded down when you're not in a downpour or freezing.

This is a casual daily-wear jacket with some technical capability, rather than the other way around. A good value from Sierra Trading Post.
