Warm but size off, hood hard to roll up

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Greg the Walker from Seattle, WA on Tuesday, December 7, 2010
It's a nice jacket but I was surprised by the size. I tried this same jacket on in a store to gauge which size I needed, and decided a small was correct (I'm usually a medium). But when it arrived in the mail, the jacket was smaller than the one in the store. I have no idea why. It stops just below my waist, and makes me look like I got a little brother's hand-me-down. The hood is also confusing - it rolls up but there's no pouch to stick it in. It's hanging out the whole time even when I've rolled it up. It's only reinforced my view that these jackets are ripoffs compared to a regular cheap windbreaker at a secondhand store.
