Odd cut for a good jacket

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Dave from CO on Friday, October 21, 2016
This Chinese made Gore-tex pro could have been a great hardshell for me but the sizing was just a bit off. At 5'8" and 175lbs I'm usually a dead-on Medium in DeadBird gear. The Medium in this jacket was simply too snug around the arm pits. Otherwise the length was great and the trim fit worked well everywhere else. I could comfortably wear the Atom LT underneath, except for feeling too constricted in the pits/chest. I exchanged this for a size Large, but that was overall too baggy and long for my frame.

If this jacket fits you well, then I think it's a solid performer. I tend to prefer a smaller hood, as I seldom pull a hood over a helmet.
