XLNT AND VERY WARM
Reviewed by ZIA from Tijeras, New Mexico on Saturday, February 7, 2015
I bought an XL, I am female, 5'9" 155 pounds, broad German shoulders and long arms. All my other form fitting jackets have been XL, but this was huge. Returned it for an L and it fits perfectly, nice shapely jacket no pull across shoulders. Just tried it, am at 8000' East Mountains outside Albuquerque and it is 45 today (Feb 7) with plenty of snow on the ground. Wore long sleeve regular tee underneath. Perfect warmth for a good hike. Shaped well enough to fit under a shell without bulking up.....perfect for throwing on to go to the gym up here. probably not uncomfortable down in Albuquerque during winter with a short sleeve tee. Color is very nice, bright but not gaudy and shimmery without being cha cha. Big zippered pockets and a draw string bottom for cinching or keeping snow out. Extremely light weight....I was surprised at how warm it is.
