Works for me; a great product and one that I would recommend

6'2" 215lb, ordered a Large. Size is fine over normal clothes, it would be tight over another jacket or bulky clothing, but as a midlayer it fits well.

The jacket is not meant to be a stand alone necessarily, but it still works well in mid-cold conditions. Was surprised to find that it is relatively wind resistant with the nylon fabric. It is not to be used as a shell in adverse conditions what-so-ever, anything more than very light rain and snow over a short period would saturate the jacket as it does not have repelling ability.

The only drawbacks I have so far are the lightweight pocket zippers which easily get pinched in the fabric and a few patches of quilting seams have come out from usage at the elbows.

You need to consider what the jacket is made for, otherwise you will be disappointed if you expect it to be a shell or ultra warm on sub freezing days.

Overall, it is a fine product and a great addition as a mid-layer under a shell or as a final layer on middle warmth short hike type days. Lightweight, pack-able, and versatile for more extreme use as part of a system.

Keep in mind that 4 stars = a great product and one that I would recommend . . . I rarely would give 5 stars unless the product is of exceptional quality and longevity.
