Nice Surprise

Reviewed by VTTRAILGIRL from VT on Saturday, January 7, 2017
Despite a review this jacket ran narrow in the shoulder, I couldn't resist the good deal. As reported, it, of course, was too snug. Instead of returning it, I tried it on an 11 miler in 10° F. Two things surprised me. The jacket paired perfectly with my Salomon hydration vest. I like that I didn't have extra bulk under it, from the narrow cut. And, the jacket stretched quite a bit. By the end of my run, I had full arm mobility. AND this jacket wicks moisture better than any jacket I've ever owned. AND it's really really warm.
I'm 6' tall and generally wear a large in women's tops, so I went with that. I think the XL would have be a touch wider but would have had too much bulk around the waist. Since I'm tall, I love having the proper length sleeve & waist this jacket provides. Thanks, La Sportiva.
