Disappointing. Weird fit, had to send back

This seems like a well-made, technical jacket, but the fit is so strange I had to send it back. I'm 5'8" and 130 lbs. I tried on a small over a long-sleeve and a thin vest and was extremely restricted when I moved my arms, even though there was plenty of room in the body (almost too much), and it was also a little short. I was surprised because Mountain Hardwear shirts and jackets usually fit me very well in size small. I tried on a medium as well, but that was very boxy in the body and certainly too big, even when worn over a few layers. (For comparison, I tried on the Ghost Whisperer vest, which oddly enough had a much better fit, and was a least an inch, maybe two longer in a size small.)
The jacket was extremely thin, light, and compressible. It seemed warm too when I put it on, but I wasn't able to field test it, so I can't comment on the range of conditions it's good for.
