Runs extremely small

I really wanted to love this. I have a friend who works for Icebreaker who recommended this jacket to me. I am looking for something to take with me on my upcoming hiking trip to Patagonia. I was looking for something that would perform in all types of weather, especially with high wind.

So I jumped when STP got it in with their fabulous prices. But that's where the good news ends. I ordered a large, which is the same size as my Cascade Hoody, which fits fine. Also for reference, I wear a L/XL in their shirts.

As soon as I took it out of the package, it looked to be on the small side. I tried it on with a thin shirt on under it and could barely zip it up. There's no way I would be able to layer anything under this jacket. It was tight across the waist, hips, and chest. Additionally, the arms are very constructive, especially if you have "Crossfit arms". I had trouble raising my arms above my head in this jacket. I don't know if Icebreaker just mislabeled this jacket or if it just a runs small. I kind of doubt the XL would even fit me, which is seriously disappointing. So I will be returning it.

Heads up Icebreaker: not all of us are tiny girls. I'm fit, but I'm on the bigger side. Please make clothing that fits us too!
