Stylish Jacket. Not packable.

5'11'' 190 lbs. Purchased size medium.

First thing I'll mention is the fit: The jacket is definitely a little snug. Its tight enough that I think a large may have been better but I do like a tighter athletic fit and the large probably would have been too baggy for my taste. The medium fits me almost perfect when I am wearing just a T-shirt underneath but if a have a mid-weight layer on underneath this jacket is definitely on the snug side. Another important thing to note is that the insulation in the entire upper area covered by the Dry Q fabric is synthetic, meaning this jacket is not nearly as packable as other dedicated backpacking lightweight puffies. I think if your looking for a dedicated puffy jacket for backpacking I would look at a more packable option...but this is a sweet looking jacket for around town and on the ski slopes!
