...since sliced bread!

This is my second Marmot windshirt and I'm pleased to see that they haven't changed a thing in many years. Light, silky, not-too-loose, and warm - it's a great windbreaker for both sedentary and athletic pursuits. The cut isn't tight, but it's form fitting enough to not be excessively flappy in the wind, which makes it suitable for cycling. If you want to wear it over bulky sweaters you may want to go up a size. It also breathes fairly well and will keep you comfortable even if you manage to get it damp from sweat or light rain. I've owned similar jackets from other companies over the years but the original Marmot is, to me, still the best overall. If you're tall and thin, you may find it to be a tad short in the waist length but it's acceptable for most people. Adding an inch or two there would be the only thing I would change about this product. Take note that there are no hand pockets...just the zip chest pocket.
