I bought this in black. I am 5'8" and wear a M in most tops. I usually buy L in jackets, but I bought a M and it fits great! I probably could not wear much more than a long sleeve T shirt under it- I don't think I could fit it over a thicker hoodlie. I was surprised that it fit me across the shoulders and that the arms were long enough.
It repels water really well. I though this jacket had a bit of a thickness to it judging by the photos, but it doesn't really. It is a great spring jacket and seems to have great weather resistance.

I live in a moderate climate and use this jacket often. It's not for really cold weather, but if bought big enough could be layered over fleece. It does run small - I returned a small for a medium - but it has a nice, feminine fit. It seems to resist rain well, although I haven't gone through a soaking in it. I would have chosen a different color had it been available, but I'm actually liking the olive green. All in all, a nice, well-made light jacket.

So disappointed to have to send this back. Fabric is great, but seems quite light for a jacket that is supposed to shield you from the elements.
The cut of the jacket really nips in at the waist, so if you're curvy, this is probably great for you. (Unfortunately, I'm shaped pretty much like a rectangle!) As far as sizing it runs quite small. For tops, I'm a size 8/medium; ordered a medium in this jacket and it barely fit with a thin t-shirt underneath. It also seems short -- that's great for me (I'm only 5ft tall) but anyone taller should expect it to fall at mid-hip. Doesn't seem practical for a rain/wind stopper shell.
Quality seemed quite good and the sleeve velcro closures were widely adjustable, so if you have trouble with sleeves being to long, you could make this work as long as it fits everywhere else.
Really disappointed because I liked the feel, but just can't keep it.
