smallish, knit looking, well tailored. I wear it over a tee shirt or a base layer as an outer garment or an insulating layer; It is really too well made to roll around in the dirt in. I can take it on a trip, sleep in it, and then go right to work and it looks fine. The outer surface is smooth enough to slip additional layers over, but remember that this has an athletic cut and fits close.

As others have noted, this is a generally well-made garment that is warm. Read the product description closely: there is no hem drawcord. I'm not sure why a technical apparel company would use top of the line fleece material and then leave off a wind-blocking detail like this, but I ended up returning it for this reason. As another quirk, I ordered this in 2 colors, and on the black one the zipper was on the right, while on the green one the zipper was on the left. Which side will yours be on?

I'm 5'11 and 170 lbs. Ordered a large and it feels like it's a half size too small in the shoulders. I use it for daily wear and also as a mid layer hiking and snowshoeing in the mountains with wind protection over it. Very warm for the weight and the collar zips nice and snug around my neck.
