    Nice fit, a slight bit toward the trim side, but not snug. Plenty of room for layering, even with my normal size Medium. The Pertex material is failry lightweight (I wouldn't call it "ultralight"), incredibly waterproof, fairly packable, and about as breathable as any of the new waterproof materials since GoreTex, which is to say, not nearly as breathable as the manufacturers suggest. The hood is very adjustable; large enough to cover a helmet but with 3 cinch-cords to shrink it down for the bare head (one at the back and two sides). There are no pit zips, but the hand pockets (each with TWO zipper heads) are large and their insides are mesh, so if you need air, you can always unzip both (assuming you aren't keeping anything important in them). There is no external Napolean pocket, but there is an internal mesh one just below the left chest area, sort of sewn on the back of the external hand pocket (they are, however, two separate pockets sharing a common mesh divider, so that opening the outside pocket will still allow air to pass through the inside pocket), which also has a tiny elastic lined hole for earbuds for an electronic device. The jacket's material is slightly stiff (which is fine because it makes it easier to unzip one-handed), and has a subtle, checkered sort of weave patterne to it. The sleeve ends are adjustable with a velcro closure. Overall, it's an attractive jacket, despite the extra room in the hood's neck area (presumably roomy in case you wear a buff or scarf or other type of wrap, or some layers with tall collars). The bottom edge of the jacket has an elastic drawcord to cinch it tight, if needed. Overall, a very functional, nice-looking jacket that is well-made and will get the job (keeping the wet nasties at bay) done. My only recommendation to OR is to add a second zipper head to the main zipper, so that the jacket could be unzipped from the bottom up, as a huge vent.

    Like the jacket: light weight, fairly durable weight fabric, hood accommodates a helmet, non clammy interior. Unfortunately, despite all the good things, the fit was something I couldn't live with: tight arm holes (very strange) and sleeve length could have been a little longer. This one is going back to STP.

    I purchased this otherwise outstanding jacket in size L as a winter storm shell, but it is unusable due to the ridiculously small arm holes. I am 6'2" and 183 lbs and have thin arms and legs. I wear a 41L in a suit, and the size L is supposed to fit a 41-43. The chest and waist of this jacket are true to size and accommodated a lightweight base layer and an Arc Teryx LT hoody. However, the arm holes are so small my shoulders were bound like a mummy. I liked the other aspects of the jacket so much I was going to keep it for a summer rain shell, but the shoulders were still bound tight with just a t-shirt. I can see why OF discontinued this jacket. I sent this back and purchased the more expensive Maximus jacket (GoreTex Pro) which also had smallish arm holes but no nearly as bad as this one. I think OR needs to take a serious look at its patterning, or market these jackets to ET terrestrials.

    Jacket is extremely lightweight and well made. Should hold up for a long time.

    This jacket fit tight under the arm pits, which would limit layering, other than that the length was great.
