I just got this jacket and have worn it only once but it certainly did the job. In my case it does seem to run a little big but that is perfect for a ski shell where I will want to put a fleece under it. The cuffs are a little strange with the neoprene like material with the thumb hole. I get hot and that certainly heated up my wrists but I can see where it will be nice when just standing around. The thumb hole seems kind of strange to me but maybe with time I will come to like it. All the zippers seems to be in the right place and there seems to be plenty of pockets to stash things for your situation.

This is a great jacket and another fantastic product from M.H. I have not put it to a big test as of yet, but plan on using when I head to Utah in a couple weeks. This product breathes very well. It works great with a mid layer when the temps drop and perfectly fine on its own when temps are on the warmer side. I would definitely recommend this jacket to anyone and you certainly can't beat this price STP offers....

I use it mostly for snow sports because of the bright color. Handcuffs and powder skirt insulate very well, it feels warmer then the Trice jacket I also use. It is another great product by Mountain Hard Wear.

I order a Medium and it fit like a small. I'm a 42" chest, 5-9", 175 lbs and this jacket would barely zip up and wouldnt fit around my shoulders. I had order a large from another website and that one fit loose in the shoulders and you could literally fit another person in the midsection as it ballooned out ridiculously. They are well constructed just poor sized and have are all over the map on sizes. I saw a similar comment on sizing, guess they were right. Mt Hardware missed on this production run bigtime. This one is going back and I'm switching to another brand as this is my second try. No fault of Sierra Trading Post, I love this site and have good deals. Thank you.

I am 6'3" 200lbs athletic fit. Bought an XL to fit in the arms and shoulders, but the midsection of the jacket is made for a very big person. I love Mountain Hardware products...but this jacket was more than disappointing due to the sizing/fit...not what I have come to expect from this brand.

Bought this for myself at same time I bought the MH Snowtastic jacket for my wife. The fit is just all WRONG on this one, at least for me. I'm 6'2" and 195, with a 44" chest and 33" waist. Got the Large. The shoulders were decent and the arms were long enough, which is unusual anyway. But, the torso barrel and waist were HUGE. I could easily zip the jacket closed over a full-sized bed pillow. That was ridiculous. It's a backcountry skier's jacket, and we tend to not be fat. Also, hoped the color would be darker than picture. Wrong. It is just a bad color scheme overall (tried the blue, and wanted something besides black. MH quality still seems to be good, but their sizing models are way off in Mens' stuff anymore. This one is going back.
