Cool weather work wear

I think it runs small; I typically wear a S, but I needed a M for this to fit loosely over other layers. Got this for abrasion-resistant work wear (cutting & moving wood, raking & moving leaves, hauling brush, hauling heavy bags, etc.) to layer over a heavy shirt or light fleece jacket for cool days--rip protection without overheating while working. I like the quilted lining because it is easier (than fleece) to put on/take off over other layers, and I think it provides more wind protection than fleece. Nice big pockets for hands, gloves, keys, etc., and extended collar keeps neck warm. The brass zipper was a bit tight/stiff initially, so I rubbed it with a soap bar, which seems to have solved the problem. I have noticed no blemishes in this 2nd.
