Beautiful Color, Disappointing Fit
Verified Buyer Reviewed by BettyDraper from Colorado on Wednesday, August 27, 2014
I ordered this jacket in the salmon color, which I absolutely loved, but unfortunately, the fit was off. Mountain Hardwear generally fits me well at at 5'7", 135, and since I have broadish shoulders, size M usually gives me a bit of room but a good fit. In this case, however, the M fit in the shoulders but was too large in the waist and hips. I suspect that the S will be too tight overall, so I'm afraid that this is a miss. Also, the tabs at the sides of the bottom give it an odd flare, and the stitching from the side pockets leave a small but noticeable - to me at least! - crease in the midsection, which I found distracting. Otherwise the quality of construction was very good, like most Mountain Hardwear clothes. I definitely wanted to love this jacket, but I'm afraid that it's going back.
