awesome jacket

Reviewed by olivebee from Big Sky, mT on Tuesday, September 25, 2012
I am SO happy with this jacket. OR jackets tend to fit me really well, and this one is no exception. It is lightweight but warm with a fleecy inside and nice fabric on the outside that will repel water and is windproof. I bought this for cold-weather hiking and cross-country skiing and I think it will be wonderful. I do have slightly bulky shoulders but there is plenty of shoulder space, and it doesn't constrict my movement at all. It falls mid-hip in length (I am 5'3" with a short upper body). It is fitted at the hips but not too tight and I have big hips (42"). I got a Medium and can fit a thin base layer and thin fleece layer under it. such a great soft shell. i love the hood as well, it could definitely fit a climbing helmet under it if needed but cinches down nicely to be fitted without a helmet. pit zips don't belong on softshells in my opinion, so i'm very happy with it as is. oh, and the color is slightly more turquoise than shown here online, LOVE the color!
