Colors are NOT accurate!

I love Marmot jackets, and I'm sure this one will be no exception. However: my jacket says it's the electric blue color, but it's definitely purple. It's not a hideous purple, so I can live with it, but it's purple. Moreover, the inner fleece jacket is NOT blue/purple, but GREY (no room for interpretation there), so not even close to what's pictured. I would not wear the fleece by itself, but I wasn't looking for a fleece jacket. A few words about sizing: I normally wear a size 10/12 at most (5'6, 150 lbs), but ordered the XL here because I know from experience that Marmot sizing is definitely for slim people and I want to have room to wear at least two long-sleeved shirts/sweaters under my jacket in the depths of winter. That said, the XL is perfect in the shoulders, hips and waist for me, still leaving a little bit of wiggle room with sweaters underneath. The sleeves are too long, of course, but I don't care since they have adjustable Velcro that keeps them from sliding over the hands. The outer fabric looks good and strong. My previous Marmot winter jacket had more of a parachute-type outer fabric, which, sadly, started to have holes on the sleeves after 2+ years and is completely impossible to mend. This fabric is more like my Marmot rain jacket that has been going strong for a good 5 years or more.
