Ordered this jacket in a medium originally and was not sure of if that fit was exactly what I needed so went on to order it in a large also. I kept the medium for myself and let my riding buddy take the large. I love the the odd color pattern and sort of sage green/brown color which will hide horse hair and dirt extremely well. The longer sleeves that many were opposed to are perfect for a rider as it gives a bit of extra length needed when arms are in the bent position, and the snug fit around the hips/waist area will keep it from hooking over the saddle horn. I like the light to medium weight and it is a very quiet fabric which appears to be rather hair proof and durable. I am 5'4", 140# with large bust and small hips and waist, it fit snug on chest but still can move arms/shoulders well. My friend is 5'9", 155# with long arms, medium bust, small wasit and larger hips and it fit her excellent, no tightness across chest at all and good range of motion in arms and shoulders. No we will of course look like bobsie twins on the trail but we will be warm and dry doing it!
