Saucony generally runs small so I ordered the extra large. The torso fits fine but the sleeves are better suited for a 37" (I am a 35" sleeve) I initially thought it was a bit heavy, probably because of the lining, But it has served me well on cool foggy mornings on the Maine coast and the waterproo...

I use this jacket daily about 5 months a year in South Carolina and during trips to the Northeast. I do a morning run of about a half-hour and occasionally also use it for brief outings to stores, etc. Outstanding warmth even though its lightweight. If its freezing or below, I'll put a sweatshirt on underneath. The jacket also is somewhat water repellent--at least for light drizzle or quick rain shower. I've washed the jacket a number of times (no dryer) and it still looks and feels good.

Really warm jacket. Haven't used it in any rain/snow yet, but the material feels like it will work well. I have used it for runs in the mid-teens and it was great, first time I ran I had a long-sleeve layer underneath and I was too warm. The only negative I can say is that it doesn't seem to breath well. Sweat tends to gather around the forearm area, but overall it doesn't detract enough to really bother me.

I'm 5'11" 155lbs; Med jacket fit perfect. I'm an avid marathoner/ultra-runner and know my gear. I purchased this jacket because it was initially described as being designed for COLD weather. It is a light weight jacket. It is water/wind resistant; contrary to the description, the jacket does not ventilate well at all. I took it for a 12 mile run in 35F weather and returned completely soaked. The jacket does look nice and can probably be used comfortably under specific circumstances, however do not purchase it and expect it to be a true cold-weather jacket. And remember that the downside to any garment being water & windproof is that it also holds stuff in. If you only train for a few miles at a time--probably not a problem. Endurance athletes should look elsewhere.

The cut and design were very unusual. No taper of the arm or jacket area, both are barrel shaped (i.e. the bicep area same size as the wrist and the waist area same size as the chest. The sleeves entirely cover my hands and the waist would fit a 300 hundred pounder. I am 6 foot tall and weigh 165. I ordered a large and it was more like a XXXL.
