almost right

I let this sit in my closet for 2 weeks while I decided, and finally sent it back. It was so close to being right!

Nice quality fabric - on the heavy side, but seems like it would last . I'm 5'5" 125, and small fit well. Fitted in the hips and voluminous in the shoulders and sleeves - seemed almost too big in the arms at first, but I'm sure that shoulder room helps with mobility in active pursuits. The fitted hips and waist might feel restrictive with a thermal mid layer, so I couldn't use it for skiing in cold temps. I'd like it to be a bit longer too, but the length is okay.
Ultimately I sent it back because the zipper sticks and is very hard to use. That would drive me crazy over time. Blue color is fine - not really "sapphire", but more of a straight up plain blue.
