Reviewed by pt from VT on Friday, December 23, 2016like the fit and feel, packs well too! Doesn't really feel like a soft shell, does have a little stretch though, zipper seems like it will fail first. well made though
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Nate the cyclist. from Massachusetts on Saturday, January 23, 2016Have only had this jacket for a couple weeks, but so far so good. Nice slim athletic fit (I'm a 5'8", 150lb gymnast and the small fits well even over a couple base layers). Haven't put it to serious water proof test yet, but does a great job blocking wind and cold (15F in Massachusetts biking at 25mph). Hood fits great over a bike helmet.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Stander from New Jersey on Tuesday, December 8, 2015I bought the Axiom because it was available in men's size XS at a great price, and the jacket delivered far more than I was expecting. The fit, weight, construction, features, and style are all impeccable. I liked it so much I tried to order another a couple days later, but STP didn't have the XS anymore.
For those of you looking for a soft shell on the softer side - Calling it a soft shell is a bit of a stretch (pun intended), as it's almost indistinguishable from a light hard shell.
I haven't worn the jacket in a serious downpour, but I have no doubt in its waterproofness, as it is Gore-Tex and fully seam sealed.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by OutdoorEric from California on Thursday, September 10, 2015As far as fit, I am 5'-11", 175 lbs and have long arms. Body of the jacket fits nice, a good amount of room for layers, but not bagging. Probably due to the athletic fit. Sleeves have a little room, but not bad. Haven't used it in the rain yet. Can't attest to its waterproof'ness. Front main zipper is a little tough to zip up, but may need to be just worn in.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Josh K from North Carolina on Monday, July 20, 2015I am very happy with the quality of this jacket. Lightweight, waterproof, breathable, packable. I'm 5'10" 132lbs and the small fits perfect. My only complaint about the jacket is the hood is quite large. But, it is designed to fit over a helmet, so I understand the size, just bigger hood than I need since I won't be wearing this with a helmet.

“I'm 6'7" and concerned about sleeve length. Are there sleeve length measurements listed that I am missing? Are there tall sizes available? I need 37" sleeves if that helps.”
I'm short but I'm wearing a medium and the sleeves are a little long on me. suggest that you contact OR Customer Service: 855 967 8197
firstname.lastname@example.org. They are very helpful. I know that they have updated the Axiom model but I expect no significant changes in arm length.
Size XL has 38" sleeves.
I order size S,and I have measured the sleeve length:30''
