Love the jacket. Owned one in New Taupe already & couldn't believe STP had it b/c they don't usually have a lot of TNF gear so I jumped on the asphalt color. Cuts wind good and offers decent water repellant. Fits me well but does run a little long in the sleeve as do most TNF jackets. Love the stret...

This lightweight jacket is very wind and rain resistent. So far I can rpt that you will not get chilled in a 20 mph 55 degree wind wearing only a t-shirt underneath or wet in a light rain. The water just beaded up and rolled off.
I will wear it in much colder conditions as we move deeper into Fall.
I usually wear XXL and this jacket was not huge and billowy. Fit is excellent - though not tapered. The sleeves fit my 35" arms well...not overly long, extra length about 1-1 1/2 inches was not bothersome, since the cuffs had an elastic band.
The jacket came down about 5-6" below my waist. I am 70" tall/205 lbs.
I had room to layer underneath the jacket (a heavy vest) which is good. Also, the jacket exterior is smooth enough, so that you can layer over it and not get hung up on anything.
Does not appear to wrinkle. Just roll it up and stuff it in your backpack. About a 1 lb.
I will buy another color somewhere else.
