Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Reviewed by Jon J from Fort Collins, CO on Thursday, July 23, 2015Taking the advice of previous reviewers, I sized down from my normal Large to a Medium. Unfortunately at 6'3"and 190 lbs, the Medium felt especially short in the torso. In addition, the sleeves were too short for my rather long arms and the fit was a bit too tight in the chest.
Fortunately, STP's awesome return/exchange policy had a Large to me within a few days. Large fits me great in every way. Since it's 95 degrees outside, I haven't worn this around much but have no doubt that it will perform every bit as good as my other Marmot gear. Awesome interior fleece lining, this thing is comfy!
P.S. - I will wear with the collar down so I don't look too fancy!
Reviewed by Neeman from Israel on Monday, March 23, 2015A very warm well styled cardigan.- It is sized larger, I normally buy a large for jackets, I listened to other posts and ordered a medium- It fits easily like a cardigan that will take a medium weight fleece underneath. - Choose regular size to wear as a coat - Not for the hills, but definitely for social or house wear. - minor point to be aware of difficult to put on over a chamois cotton or corduroy shirt as the inner fleece is also rough - get these while you can
Reviewed by gulfbreeze from FL on Sunday, November 3, 2013This is one of those purchases I wish had worked out for me. The fabric of the Backroad fleece is absolutely great, nice thick sweater-type fleece outside, with a more conventional fleece feel on the inside. Pretty thick weight, too, that I think would keep out significant chills. Unfortunately, while most all Marmott jackets in medium fit very well, just a bit larger than an athletic cut, the Backroad was a very full cut on me. In addition, I chose the dark blue color, which I really liked, but when paired with the dark grey cuffs and collar and black shoulders and front pocket, the colors just seem to be mismatched. In retrospect, I think the light grey fabric would have less variation, at least according to the pics. Finally, the shoulder fabric was just a bit too squared off at the outer edges, and didn't allow the shoulder to drape more naturally on me...it had almost a padded shoulder look to it. But all of those negatives are really personal issues, not inherent in the jacket, so I don't think I can score down the jacket for them. A better fit and the lighter grey color might have worked great.
Reviewed by Mark from Minnesota on Monday, October 28, 2013I would call this more of a sweater than a jacket. I find it comfortable and the fit is overall good, but the sleeves are a bit long. My use for it will be late spring/early fall and for when I want a cleaner look (business casual and when out for a casual evening). One would need some sort of shell on, if you are outside in a cool/cold breeze...
Reviewed by Eddie from Virginia on Thursday, October 24, 2013When this jacket arrived, I really like the color and high quality. But when I put it on, the body fit perfectly, but the sleeves were a good 2 inches too long. Really wanted to keep it, but couldn't get over the sleeves covering half my hands so I ended up returning it.

“I have a 38 inch chest. The sales person at REI told me that since people are larger, sizes marked SML have change to be larger. I used to take a medium. Reviews of this product suggest they tend to the larger size. Should I buy a small?”
I usually wear a M or L, I just tried on a S and it did fit good. If you like your clothing to be more form fitting I would recommend getting a small.
