Best fitting "go to" thin puffy.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Tripbuilders from 4 Corners on Friday, February 19, 2016
I ordered several thin puffy coats to try out before I decided on this jacket. Overall, this jacket fit me the best and is most "true to size" in my opinion. I am 5'-11", 180#, 41-42 chest. I tried a medium and a large. The medium was too small in the shoulders and arm length for me. The large was good through the shoulders and arms, but a little loose in the torso, but overall the best fit. I also compared this jacket to the hooded version and decided against the hood. While I think the hood is a good idea, because it appears the hood is helmet compatible, I didn't want to mess with having an oversize hood on a jacket that was, for me, more of a casual around town jacket. This is not as lightweight as the micro puffy down versions from Mountain Hardware or Patagonia, however, the outer nylon seems more substantial than the super lightweight jackets and overall I think this jacket will take a little more abuse. So far I am very happy with this jacket.
