Maybe I'm overprioritizing aesthetics, but...

...the seaming on the front of this jacket is just dreadful. I'm tall & slender and this jacket gave me a potato shape, with undefined sloping shoulders, no curve-in at the waist, and no curve-out at the bust. I couldn't go down to an extra-small because the arms would be too short & shoulders too narrow. I'd seen photos of the jacket on a model at another retailer and figured they'd given her a size too large -- nope, the outer jacket just looks frumpy. There's a real functional problem with that, too: for me, a closer-fitting jacket keeps breezes out and helps with warmth. The inner jacket was OK and I have always been impressed with OmniHeat technology (have other/similar jacket with OmniHeat); I'd happily use the inner liner alone. Love the fun colors (I chose nocturnal print/atoll) that are offered, too! It could have been perfect with princess seams, contoured to a woman's body... what a surprising disappointment.
